Sometimes I have to stop myself and remember how lucky I am to have amazing family and friends, a roof over my head, clients I love working with and the best two cats in the world… I lack or want for nothing… Feel very blessed…Read more
Wanted to send out some thoughts on achieving what you set out to do daily. With everything at a fingers touch or click away, I found that every now and then we can easily lose focus on what we need to complete that day (myself included!). The result of losing focus is that the day flies by and you still have tons to do on your list.
The impact of that can be disappointment (and this can bring up the self worth gremlins that once let out, can run rampant). Plus it can aggravate underlining beliefs that I will never achieve the big things we want for myself ie “If I can’t pay the friggin’ electric bill on time, how will I ever manage study for that career change I badly desire!”
Start The Day with a Quick Win and not Facebook!
I sat back a while ago and thought about the patterns that lead to a successful day versus a disappointing day. I notice that when I did one of my plan tasks first thing in the morning, it instantly gave me that “Can Do” feel. For the rest of the day, I felt motivated to “Just Do it”. Ultimately leading me to having a increased sense of worthiness and contentment.
Tips for that “Just Do it” Feeling
- If you do not plan out your week and days please start right now!
- Each morning look at the tasks you have ahead of you and do a task first thing (ie I vacuumed and cleaned this morning by 7.30, felt great and now on my 4th task. Its 10am!)
- Generally, the task will be a home task or exercise / task
- Should take no longer than 10 to 15 minutes
- Always eat breakfast to fuel up and support energy levels for the rest of the day
- Plan and prepare what you can the evening before so the sense of rush in the morning is eliminated (ie breakfast, lunch, your next day to-do list)
- Checking Facebook from your bed after your alarm goes off on your phone is not counted as a task!
If you do these things daily, you start to condition yourself to Achieving. To Focus. To have awseome feeling of Success and Flow.
Parents, I know you have whole other ball game to contend with every morning with getting kids ready for school but I still say this is important for you to do as well. So give it go. Start now and not week next…!
Until next time… Happy Life Playground Kids. Let’s PLAY!Read more
All men they say are created equal. Is it true? Well no man would seem to think so. We are all unique individuals, who are gifted in unique but differing ways to excel in life. So what can be said with certainty is the fact that all of us have it in us to strive for and achieve seemingly impossible goals… Just like we did as children…
If you are skeptical about this, just think back of times a mere two hundred years. Would the average man on the street anywhere in the world, be able to visualize or believe that a time would come that man would move around the world in self propelled vehicles at what would seem to him, incredible speeds; would he believe that airplanes made out of steel would transport man to the four corners of the world?
Would he for the life of him believe that it was possible for man to travel to the moon and back safely in a space vehicle?
Are you getting the drift? Fifty thousand years back man had very little separating him from the rest of the animal kingdom, save his ability to think and plan, and look where it got him. You might have always wanted to fly, but were afraid to train to be a pilot because you had vertigo.
How could you think of flying? Yet there was something that attracted you to it. Chances are that minus your phobia you would have made a damn good pilot. So you did not apply for the test, and let the opportunity pass you buy. Little did you know that vertigo does not strike in an enclosed space like an airplane. There are so many pilots who suffer from it.
The only thing that stops us from going out there and pursuing our dreams is our lack of self belief. “How can I possibly do that?” Well, you won’t know until you try and do it.
What is it that makes some people with seemingly far limited capabilities surge ahead of others. They did not pay attention to whatever it was that the others thought they lacked. Instead they focused on their goal, and found out the best way to achieve it. They left the analyzing and doubting to the others who got left behind.
Self sabotage and self limiting beliefs are the root of the reason why people are not attaining their dreams, goals and ideas.
Hence why I bring the child-like wonder of yesteryear into my life & motivation coaching ie… As a child in the playground, we believed we could be anything that we wanted to be!
Who would have thought, perhaps even two years back that a black man with a foreign father, and a middle name Hussein would occupy the Oval office at White House? Not one man on Planet Earth, but Barack Obama himself. He always had it in him. What did he call his autobiography – The Audacity of Hope. We should all have it. Forget we can’t do it. Remember, yes we can!
There are people who do not want their mortal remains disposed of after death but frozen and preserved in nitrogen chambers, so that many years in the future, when mankind has achieved mastery over death, they may be revived and get a second shot at life.
What can be more indicative of the resilient human spirit?
For everybody the sky and beyond is the limit. Is it time for you to bring the child-like wonder back into your life?
