We live in a world where people expect instant results and instant gratification. Not everyone, of course, but many of us. I am definitely guilty of that one time to time. Despite the better judgment that we have, we follow the “quick pill” strategy.
When you brush your teeth just once, they will rot, when you don’t wash…Well, the answer is clear. When you wear the same clothes, it gets dirty. Our personal hygiene is often obvious, so we don’t neglect it.
But when it comes down to our goals, well-being, and the bigger picture, that’s a different story…
Life is not hard to live, yet, provides us with many equations to solve. One of those equations is how do we feel when we are by ourselves. How do we act when we don’t feel like going at it. How do we operate the chaos that goes on in our heads each day?
What are the steps we take to clear the clutter? The solutions are many. The challenge is that we don’t stick with it long enough. We give up way too early before we can see any tangible result.
We need to take a step back and…
It’s important to disconnect often. How?
Every day we wake up, walk through life, we can focus on what’s in front of us or lose ourselves in the thought of the past. It’s up to us which road we choose at a given moment. It’s up to us to drive momentum, drive improvement.
It starts with clarity — you cannot feel the magic when you are not clear about what your life should be like. When we talk about feeling the magic, it’s in deep relation to your goals, happiness and life.
Life keeps ticking by. In any direction we go, life will not slow down…
Learn to be with yourself by yourself! It’s hard for all of us since we live in such disconnected times. Taking time to reflect, struggle with your thoughts, wrestle with your own opinions is the time we all have to take.
1.Morning to reflect — when you start the day, it’s good to recharge in the form of reflection. Today is a blank slate, and you can dictate the outcome. You cannot influence external forces, but you can dictate what you are up to. You can decide what thoughts you will let your life predominantly dictate.
2. Move your body…
What to do when you are tired? You might feel demotivated and tired. Well, just like any other day, you got to find reasons to start your brain the right way to get it into the “go-getter” vibe.
Be grateful — the first thing upon waking up to do is to be grateful. No matter how you feel, you got to make your body feel grateful for the fact that you are awake, alive, and that you got a whole new day to make a difference.
Perhaps, it’s a fact that you are improving yourself day in and day out. But, there will be moments where you need to shine a bit more.
For that, you need to be brave! It would be best not to give up on things you think are exciting to pursue because you feel it might be too hard to achieve. Deciding not to give up means choosing the harder road, but it’s worth it.
Life is a journey, and when we venture out there, it’s a series of pursuits that cannot wait. It’s a series of exerted efforts and failures…
Anytime you are venturing into the unknown, that’s when you will need to fall back on your senses and your previous knowledge. It’s also good to expect that things might not go as you plan them to go.
Every time you feel a bit concerned, know that means you are venturing into the new. You are trying something that will benefit you in the long run. It’s good to prepare for it a bit.
Your mental rehearsal — Anything new needs to be rehearsed in your mind. Not the scary bit, but how well you perform under pressure.
Whether we want it or not, we approach the end of the week, in some countries, it’s evening, with a swift swing of the sharp blade. This process repeats each day. We got to zero on each day with more intention.
It’s been a rough year. Full of uncertainty and challenges. More than ever we know, that life is not what it used to be. We had to pack our carry-on and prepare for the next wave. We strapped in to survive the bumpy ride. We are coming out of the pandemic, but it’s not all over yet.
It’s a million-dollar question. First, we need to figure out where we are going, our purpose, what is important to deliver daily.
Life will become what we make of and what we think about. It sounds cheesy, but it’s the real truth. When you want to shine, you have to find the light inside yourself. Without the internal light, nothing will happen.
To train this internal light, you got to fire up the stove every day. You got to feed with food, and hopefully, one day, it becomes this big inferno to consume your thoughts, behavior and inspire others.
