Monday’s can be a Day you dread or a day you wake up and ready to crush your goals. I used to be one of those that would literally dread. I would get so upset and anxious Sunday Night to the point that I would end up with a Migraine or sick to my stomach. I hated Monday’s, I hated how I felt, I hated all the drama and negativity that I would have to face when I went to work. How bad is that?
No one should ever have to go through that, I find we get so many things stuck in our heads that we stand in our way. We start to doubt ourself, we talk negatively to ourselves. A lot of self doubt , fears step in.
We are far too smart for that. I have talked to many women who are frustrated and tired of working their butts off but not achieving their goals. They tell me how they hate their job, they’re stuck. So I ask them what is your goal? What is the one thing you want to do in your life? Far too often they say “they don’t know” They’ve never thought about it. They are so busy looking after everyone else , kids, husband, significant other that they’ve never taken the time to really think about themselves and what they want in life.
I used to be like that, I never knew what I wanted with my life, I was too worried about how everyone thought of me, and make sure everyone was happy. Which then caused depression, anxiety, obesity . So how do we change our mindset, how do we get all the traffic in our head to start focusing on making our life the best it can be?
It starts with believing in yourself. Building your self confidence, and changing your mindset. Sounds hard I know but I did TWO things that have changed my life for the better. I can honestly say “I LOVE MYSELF” and mean it. I know that I will do my best to make sure that my life is the best I can make it, so when I get to the end of the road I will look back and say ” DAM What a great life I had.”
The first thing I do is :
I write in my 5 minute journal. Which is a great book, it helps me set my day and focus on what I need to do to make my day great.
Secondly I listen to Personal Development. I know your thinking my goodness I don’t have time for that or your thinking “BORING” But I want you to think of someone who made a a difference in her life that if she wanted to her life would have been way different then where she is now. She could have lived the same life as her Mom and you would Never have known who she is. I’m talking about Oprah Winfrey. She is successful, she is powerful, she is Smart. She is smart because she knew she wanted to different lifestyle than what she was given as a child. The way she got out of that was by reading and learning. Do you know how many Books She reads? She reads at least one hour a day , she has a quote that says how she got to her success“Books were my pass to personal freedom.”
So if your wanting a change and make your life the best it can be, then I encourage to change your habit and start a good habit. A little bit each day will make a huge impact later. Take that one habit and work on it everyday. Write in a journal, make affirmations, or read 10 minutes everyday that will help you grow. Sorry Harlequin, but we need to read books to inspire us, give us the knowledge to grow, NOT escape. If you really want to be successful and change your path you won’t want to escape, or hide you will embrace your life!! Let’s do this. Take the challenge and try one habit for 30 days and let me know how you made out!! I bet you’ll see a difference !!
