Day #180: A Positive Approach

You should constantly be striving to see the positive in every aspect of your life and it all starts with a bright and optimistic morning. 

So what do you need to do to train yourself to be positive every day? Well here are 3 steps to becoming more positive today.

“A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.” ~Winston Churchill

Step One: Believe a Positive Attitude is a Choice

The hardest of them all is to actually make the choice to have a positive attitude. As life is going to throw some things your way, and for sure they ain’t all going to be the best.  But with the right attitude, you can make the best of everything.

Step Two: Rid Your Life of Negativity

If you want to live a positive, joyful life, you cannot be surrounded by negative people who don’t encourage your happiness. Sacrifices will need to be made.  It can hurt to distance yourself from people—even when you know they aren’t good for you or your current lifestyle. Also, check out the negative behaviors

Step Three: Look For the Positive in Life

In every person, in every situation, there is something good. Most of the time it’s not obvious. We have to look. And sometimes we have to look hard. Everything—good and bad—is a learning experience so, at the very least, you can learn from bad experiences. You will usually find something good, something genuinely positive, about every person or situation.

Day #179: Don’t Be Discouraged

We search high and low for answers, for the right people, and for the right motivation. We become discouraged when we see things “happening” for others, but not ourselves… What if I told you there was someone who could get you to where you want to go?

They would help you succeed,  they would not make you feel discouraged and they would give you daily motivation and of course, they would inspire and encourage your own self-control.

Interested?

Take a look in the mirror. That person is you.

The only person they will get you from A to B is yourself.
The only person that will that can truly motivate you is you.
The only person that can give you self-control is you.

Not sure how? Ask yourself: “How determined am I to see this through?”

If you are determined. Then you will make it happen!

There will be highs and lows and yes at times you will feel discouraged, but the key is to just go for it. 

So what will you do? Where will you go? How will you do it?

It all begins with YOU!

Let no one discourage your ambitious attitude, you don’t need a fan club to achieve your goals, be your own motivation – Unknown

Day #178: Staying Committed

When it comes to keeping active and healthy, exercise is obviously an important key. Staying committed is more important. For some, this requires some hard motivation and a push to get out there, while for others, they cannot get out there quick enough. Like any habit, goal, and journey, it takes the time to see the results and to see how far you have progressed. Depending on contributing factors, the time will vary and so will the intensity of the progress.

There are many ways to stay committed, to stay motivated, to see it through to the finish line and this is for any good habit, goal or routine. However, the real key may be as simple as  ‘keep on keeping on’. As long as you’re doing, then you are progressing.

Unless commitment is made, there are only promises and hopes… but no plans. – Peter Drucker

See below on some ways you can keep on keeping on:

Find some passion while you do it

When you’re actually working on your goal, find a way to do it that you enjoy doing. Let’s say you’re trying to lose 10kg and you have never exercised or had a routine to keep you honest. This is the perfect chance to do a workout that you find fun. You could swim, box, run, walk, go intense or slow it down with yoga… There are so many options, there will always be one for you. This is the same for other goals. 

Educate yourself

Knowledge is power, people. Just don’t try to impart your wisdom on those who didn’t ask for it. If you’re going to be doing and trying new things to get this goal over the line, you may as well educate yourself. As once you succeed, I can assure you, you will have others looking to you for the secrets of success and when you have the knowledge to share, this can benefit you quite well!

Apply it to your life

What’s that? Don’t you have time to focus on your goal? Well firstly, that’s a joke as for where are your priorities? However, I can understand we all have busy lives and the best way to ensure you are doing something for your goals each day, is to embed your efforts, within your daily do. Trying to hit those 10,000 steps each day? How about skip the subway and walk? Want to read a book a week? Read while you commute. These are some simple and very basic examples, but that’s all it needs to be. Think of it like killing two birds with one stone.

Own it and take charge

The key to sticking to your goals is owning them and taking charge of your plans. There will be sacrifice and make it clear that when you are working on your goal, this is your time. If people ask if you are busy, YES YOU ARE BUSY. You have something on. Your goal working time! I’m sure some people will find it silly, or say you can do that anytime. Well, that’s not true. You have dedicated this time as this is the time you can do it. So be strong, stand tall when it comes to staying on top of goal progress. As it only takes a couple of times skipping your usual goal working session and you will be backsliding… and all that PROGRESS will start to decompose. It is your choice. Own it!

Day #177: Self-Value Matters

Self-value is the very core of an individual. Over the years, society has lowered the expectation of self-value, and in some cases, you can see clearly it has disappeared almost like it has been forgotten. Basically, it has become lost in today’s society. However, there is still hope. You have the power to control you, and you should stand tall and not be dictated by what people think of you. You should own up to being you, live being you and embrace the person you are. Learn to love your strengths and weaknesses and understand how you can leverage these every day.

You are worth so much more than you could ever imagine! You just need to realize it! You need to claim it, own it and take it wherever you go.

“Until you value yourself, you won’t value your time. Until you value your time, you will not do anything with it. ”– M. Scott Peck

Maybe you have problems identifying who you are? Maybe you need to ask yourself some questions?

  • Who are you?
  • What motivates you?
  • What saddens you?
  • Why are you driven by one thing but not another thing?
  • Why do you feel upset in one situation and not in another situation?
  • What are your values and beliefs?
  • Where did they come from?

Do these questions challenge you? Prompt you?

Take a pen, write these down. Answer them. Elaborate on them. Understand who you are and what makes you tick.

Day #176: Soldier On

We are so close to hitting the halfway point for the year and it is crucial you stay strong and soldier on! Now is better than ever to start thinking about the mid-year checkpoint before really analyzing how the first 6 months of the year has progressed.

Looking back over the past months, 2017 is ticking on quickly and soon enough we will be knocking on 2018. The scary fact is, people are planning next year already and we haven’t even finished this year, let alone hit half way. So it is important you make your next 6 months better than the ones before.

If you think you’ve already made it, that’s when you can fall short and go backwards. I’m constantly pushing forward and chasing the element of perfection. – Jason Derulo

But in all honesty, this quick checkpoint should tell you one of two things. Either you need to up your game for the next 6 months, or you need to keep on keeping on. Regardless, there is no backing down. So either way, you need to be moving forward.

Depending on how your year is going, you will determine if you need to actually start your year goals, continue or maybe you want to make the second half more intense, or maybe you have finished already. It’s up to you.  I’m going to push harder. I will look at the next 6 months just like another day. And each day I strive to do and be better than the day before. If I don’t end up coming out better, than the experience itself is worth it. I still have some goals and things I want to knock out and I still have 6 months to do it. But my plan is to overcome these goals and go greater.

For me: I’m going to push harder. I am going to soldier I will look at the next 6 months just like another day. And each day I strive to do and be better than the day before. If I don’t end up coming out better, than the experience itself is worth it. I still have some goals and things I want to knock out and I still have 6 months to do it. But my plan is to overcome these goals and go greater.

The question I have for you is what are you going to do for the next 6 months? Checkpoint today and take a high-level evaluation of what you have done for the past 6 months. Are you happy?

We can all improve, but if you are not happy, what are you going to do about it. That is the ultimate question. What are you going to do about your next 6 months?

Will you step it up, keep it going or maybe you won’t do anything?

Day #175: I Am Capable

In a fast paced world and a sense of living, we can forget to reflect on ourselves and become overwhelmed by playing life. We start to think maybe we are not that capable. Well, this is wrong. You are capable.

This year I have gone from 1,2,3 to A,B,C. I have taken a series of variables in my life, transformed them and replaced them with something that is changing who I am and what I can do. In doing so, having now seen some tangible results received some feedback and seen just how CAPABLE I am. I now have regret. Regret, I didn’t see things earlier. Regret I didn’t act on things earlier. Regret that I didn’t do this, or I didn’t do that. BUT! I don’t regret the choices I have made. The choices I have made have enabled me, equipped me and made me into the flesh and blood I am. The regrets, however, can be rediscovered, re-found and potentially put into play again.

But that’s just it. I was born to fail. I am meant to make mistakes. I was also born to get back up again. I was born to fail, to get back up and to CONQUER. We were all born for this.

What does this all mean? It means I am working on a new me. Not because the old me is bad. But because the old me can improve. The current me has come thus far and I all I can say is it’s been a journey, but this is the tip of the iceberg. I have dreams to go further and be the fullest I am capable of. The body is a vessel, the mind; the soul and the heart are what is needed to drive. The body won’t go where the MIND, SOUL, and HEART won’t push it.

I’ve come so far, yet my potential has seen the horizon and has set the course full steam ahead. But to get there I need to get some things in order, I need to be CONFIDENT. I need to punch FEAR in the face and I need to take RISK for reward.

So what about you?

Day #174: Momentum Thrives

The sooner we retain momentum, the sooner we can thrive. Momentum enables us to create and ensure a snowball effect but in a good way!

I’ve always been one to aspire further and higher than the day before. The urge and drive I have to move forward, higher, further, deeper and closer towards my goals, grows stronger each day as I apply daily discipline. This creates a new habit through willpower, which further proves to myself that I can and that I will conquer. In doing so, I am motivated more and more by the result.

I remember when I first started to run 10 km in a single session. It was only a 2 years ago I was completing my first 5 km. And less than a year before that I was barely surviving a 3 km run. The point is, the longer you push, the stronger you push and the deeper you push, soon enough you will GROW, and you will step out of the box you were held by and you will be released into a bigger box. This is called your comfort zone. Then you start again. Working day by day to move forward and closer to your goal.

The sooner you give up, the sooner you accept defeat.

My challenge to you is; before you start moving forward, why not take a moment to identify the next step it is you need to take. What will it require from you and what will you do about it? Sometimes, we can be so caught up in moving forward we miss what we are actually trying to achieve.

Regardless, each day is a chance to start fresh, start clean and a chance to start again. Will you be willing to take today as that chance? Are you up for it? 

Start now. Start where you are. Start with fear. Start with pain. Start with doubt. Start with hands shaking. Start with voice trembling but start. Start and don’t stop. Start where you are, with what you have. Just … start. —Ijeoma Umebinyuo

Day #173: You Must Decide

It is time for your to decide. Today is your chance at a fresh start. It is a chance to take on the new and forget the old. Whatever it is that is holding you back, it is time to shake it off. But in order to be rid of these things and to move forward, it is going to require you to make some tough and even harder choices.

You have the power and the ability to do amazing things, and it is all controlled with a simple YES or NO.

Will you continue to do what you are doing and avoid making the necessary decisions?

Or will you make the hard decision to make a stand and fight yourself to be the change you have been looking for and to take ownership of your life?

“My life didn’t please me, so I created my life.” ― Coco Chanel

It won’t be easy, but each day is a single step and it only takes a few steps to build momentum. So you need to decide. So I suggest you go cold turkey, you go serious and you start taking the required steps. In no time you will be looking back in awe to see how far you have come.

Just remember, that every mountain has a view at the top which makes the struggle and climbs well worth it.

Will you make the decision to change your life? The question I ask you is… how much do you want it?

How much do you want this change? As only you can make the decision and choose to fight overcoming it.

What will you decide?

Day #172: Great & Wise

I’m not trying to say that we are all not wise, but sometimes we think we are making a difference doing one thing when really all we are doing is exactly that; only thinking that we are. Being clever is great, but being wise will always supersede being clever.

If we spent more time focusing on fixing ourselves, trusting ourselves, believing in ourselves and learning to be confident, then we would have the characteristics to enable and equip us to change the world.

Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself. – Rumi

Knowledge is knowing Tomato is a fruit Wisdom is not putting it in fruit salad –  Shwetabh Shekhar 

Cleverness/intelligence is the ability to solve a problem. Where, wisdom is the ability to know whether the problem needs to be solved, whether it’s the right problem, and whether it’s a problem at all.

Being able to solve the problem is always required, but knowing whether it is even required, will save you from doing something that wasn’t necessary.

We may have all the intelligence or cleverness in the world, therefore we think this will help change the world. When really you need to be the change you want to see in the world.

My challenge to you is; next time you think you are making a difference, changing the world or providing a solution. Ensure that there is a problem to solve. Sometimes, it is us that needs to change, adapt and understand.

“Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself.” – Leo Tolstoy

Day #171: Biggest Challenge

The biggest struggle and the biggest challenge we face is that of ourselves. We are the decision makers, the dictators and the ones who are going drive us to our end. In any given moment, we are living in pursuit of something more. We are living to be more.

In primary school, we are striving to make it to the next grade, then in secondary school, we begin to pursue deeper results to land us into a college course, which should enable us to land into the career we have been convinced is our destiny and our ultimate goal. But soon enough, you will wake one morning and will realize, what you are chasing is never going to be living, but only static, as you will be always chasing and striving for the next thing.

Stop for a moment.

What about now. Think about the now. In order to land into the goal or the dream you need to be equipped, ready and enabled to do so. To do so, you need to have a clear and focused mind daily. If you are too focused on the future, how can you grow in the present to actually reach the future? Take a step back, slow it down and regroup your thoughts, regroup your plan and identify what you need to do in order to successfully move on to the next step.

I challenge you to sit down and write the truth about yourself: what you’re good at, what you’re bad at, what motivates you, what you enjoy doing, what you’re insecure about, what you despise and, most importantly, what you value.

Simply putting it all on paper can bring tremendous clarity regarding who you are and what you’re meant to be doing. Surprisingly or really “no surprise at all”, if you put 100% of your efforts into your strengths, and don’t look back. You will be who you are meant to be.
