What is your inner dialogue? The way you talk to yourself? You have to learn to talk to yourself the way you talk to those you truly love...encompass that you are more than enough! WAKE UP and make the decision to be kind to yourself and control your inner dialogue with kind and loving words.
“If we really love ourselves, everything else in our lives works”... Louise Hay. I absolutely LOVE this quote! It says so much in a few simple words.
We have to learn to STOP investing everything we have into believing that we aren’t good enough!! Here are a few things to do DAILY that will help improve the way we talk to ourselves:
*Appreciate how special and amazing you truly are!
*Drown yourself in Affirmations
*Pay attention to thoughts that run through your mind and replace them with good and loving thoughts
*Do that which you love
*DON’T compare yourself to others...It is your uniqueness that makes you special
*Love yourself - because when you don’t you are telling God that he made a mistake
New Year’s Day 2019 is long gone, but New Year’s 2020 is just on the horizon… If you had to grade yourself for 2019, right now, what grade would you give yourself?
Were you happy with all you accomplished? Disappointed? Did you fall short? Did you feel as if you could have done more?
It’s okay to not be totally “stoked” with your results...use it to put your foot on the gas and finish the final quarter with FOCUSED INTENT on totally kicking ass!!
We are going to focus on 3 of the Rocks:
*Relationships (Rock Solid)
*Business & Finance (Rock On)
*Health & Fitness (Rock Hard)
RELATIONSHIPS...We have two objectives ...engage your current relationships and develop new ones. If you are in a romantic relationship, go deeper into it and if not, focus on friendship and work relationships and make it a point to let those people know you are ALL IN and you truly care about them.
BUSINESS & FINANCE...2 objectives here...we have to make sure we are on top of debts that may exist… Ask yourself, “what is something that is weighing you down financially?” Write it down and create a PLAN to pay it down and ultimately PAY IT OFF! If you don’t have debt - AWESOME!!! Take the time to congratulate yourself! Maybe it’s something you have been wanting to purchase for yourself but have been hesitating out of fear - GO GET IT!!
Now let’s focus on business/finance and get clear on what we would have to do to make this an incredible finish to 2019. We can all think of that one THING that we NEED to GET DONE...define it and Do it!
HEALTH & FITNESS...What is your biggest health and fitness goal? Let’s use this final quarter to Finish Strong and PLAY FULL OUT, reaching that weight goal/pant size you are chasing, or whatever it might be.
FINAL QUARTER...Sweat every day! Workout and have a healthy diet with plenty of water...find a simple plan that works and do it!
GET FOCUSED...align yourself to your goals and amazing things will happen …
Make this your year to end with a BANG!!...Remember, you only have one...SO ROCK THIS LIFE NOW!!!!
1. PRAY EVERY DAY WITH PURPOSE & ACTION
Tony Robbins says . “action without a higher degree of purpose is a waste of time”. Ask God how he can use you today and how you can bless others
2. FOCUS ON THE BIGGER PICTURE
Never ever lose sight of the big picture and always work on your “WHY” - don’t get lost in the doing or the “how” and forget to build an create
3. STEP OUTSIDE THEIR COMFORT ZONE
Exceptionally successful people push the boundaries of what is possible and never accept settling. They thrive when they are stretched beyond what they think they can handle.
4. SURROUND THEMSELVES WITH SMART PEOPLE
Successful people know their team is CRUCIAL to their success!! Collaboration allows you to refine your thinking and challenge yourself, as well as being challenged. “We become the average of the 5 closest people we surround ourselves with”.
5. THEY REFUSE TO TAKE NO FOR AN ANSWER
Only the most stubborn will persevere long enough to climb the rest of the mountain when others give up. They are willing to do what others are not. Don’t let anyone tell you how big or audacious and insane your dreams are!!
6. GET THE JOB DONE
High performers have developed “laser-focus” when it comes to getting things done. They do what most people are not willing to do. Set aside your time and learn to prioritize better. Focus on your goals - NOT your “to do list”...in most cases it is actually better to make a “NOT TO DO LIST” so you stay focused on what actually needs to be accomplished.
7. NEVER EVER EVER STOP LEARNING
Success breeds success...success leaves clues...Challenge yourself on a DAILY BASIS...NEVER GIVE UP!! Surround yourself with great people who encourage you to move forward and do more.
Always remember… “YOU ONLY HAVE ONE, SO ROCK THIS LIFE NOW!!!!!
Often times we cannot make sense of why we are going through something. Just remember, God’s not done with you. It’s really difficult to let go of trying to control the outcome.
In our weakest moments God does his strongest work...there is strength in the struggle, pain in the process and only through the hurt can we heal.
It is like therapy or rehab after a surgery, coming back off an injury, training for a marathon, healing from a loss. We have to experience the struggle, we must go through the hurt and the pain to come out on the other side. Sunshine always comes after the rain.
Remember, God’s not done writing your story so stop trying to steal the pen.
Preparation is key! John Wooden felt foundational preparation was so critical to his basketball team’s success that the first lesson he taught his players was how to properly put on socks and tie their shoes to avoid blisters and injuries. Sounds ridiculous, but success in found in the fundamentals. Games are won, and lost, due to preparation, or lack thereof.
When you are prepared (being prepared):
*you have a competitive advantage
The art of preparation allows you to enjoy whatever it is that you are preparing for even more because you have laid the groundwork for success. Becoming the best is hard but how do you truly get better? By preparing to pursue your true God-given potential.
Commitment without planning is wishful thinking. You can change your life by taking responsibility for your actions. Remember, you only have one...SO ROCK THIS LIFE NOW!!
