Just What the Doctor Ordered

Although many do not believe it, your attitude has an enormous impact on your overall health.

 

If you perceive yourself to be in poor health or constantly tired, you begin to believe that and even attract that sense of ‘health’ upon yourself.

 

Now, I am not suggesting that all health is in our heads, however, I know that whatever we think about, we attract to ourselves.

 

Don’t believe me?

 

Let me challenge you to give it a try.

 

Let’s say that you feel chronically tired. As long as you do not have a diagnosis of something more serious, consider every morning, writing down all the things in your life and your body that you feel good about.

Okay, okay, maybe the things that you feel ‘ok’ about.

Take time to be grateful for what you DO have versus what you do not.

From my personal experience, this simple process will change more than just your attitude.  It will change your overall health trajectory.

 

Think about that.

How to Move On

How to Move On

Today’s Mindset is far easier to say and talk about than it is to walk out in real life.

Let’s face it, you and I have both been hurt before and both of us are probably still dealing with the sting of those actions.

 

I know I am.

But the good news is that it does not have to be that way.

No, I am not suggesting that we just simply try to forget about our past or pretend as though it did not happen…It Did.

But, the key in moving past the past is to understand WHY you were made to feel that way.

It is tough to relive a past hurt, but rather than re-live it, dig into why you were made to feel the hurt.

What emotions did it bring up?
What responses did you first have?
Are you mad at who hurt you, or are you mad at yourself because you let yourself be vulnerable?

 

Ooops.  I probably left teach and went to meddling a bit on that last one.   😉

Understanding the WHY of past hurts and setbacks is the doorway that leads to your freedom and release.

How do I know? I lived it firsthand.

 

Think about that.

A Success Perspective

A Success Perspective

Today’s quote is hysterical, but also incredibly tragic.

There are millions of entrepreneurs trapped inside corporate jobs. For many, it is a voice of fear or a voice of uncertainty that keeps them limited and in a corporate job for thirty or forty years. They are frustrated.

An entrepreneurial mind says that, “I’m willing to do the hard things that normal people are not willing to do, so that I can reap the benefit of success that normal people will never see.”

Being an entrepreneur is hard because you have lots of work to do, but you also have the work of structuring and exercising your mind.

Take action.

I challenge you to look at positivity in your life. Look at your words. Listen to your thoughts. Pay attention to what is happening in your heart, and in your mind.

When you do, you’ll quickly realize that your mind, and your mindset either work for you, or work against you.

Think about that.

Grow vs Go

Grow vs Go

I think the most disheartening response I hear to the question, “How are you doing?” is when someone responds with something like, “I’m here,” or “I’m just existing.”

I certainly get that we cannot be “up” all the time.  But, I also know that we choose how we live our life every day.

Things do not happen to us, they happen for us.

The question is, ‘how do we respond?’

Not everything is glitter and unicorns, I get it. But in choosing to be intentional so that we drive our day rather than react to our day is key for a growing entrepreneur or leader like you.

So what do you do when you just don’t feel like growing?

Simple. First, you acknowledge that you do not feel like doing the work.  Second, you do the work anyway.  You show up. Finally, you go back to a place in your memory where you felt alive and in charge and ask yourself, “What was different then from now?”

You see, our emotions lie to us all the time.  We may be tired or unfocused, but in reality, we are experiencing resistance – a form or procrastination where our body and mind trick us.  We do not actually feel lost, we are just telling ourselves that so we can justify avoiding something that we are not quite comfortable with.

It sounds silly — and it is — but it is also real and is stealing your mojo.

You control your day.  Now go take your rightful place and slay it.

Think about that.

Walls vs Bridges

Walls vs Bridges

Almost all of us undervalue the relationships in our lives.  We often take them for granted and spend too little time nurturing the important relationships around us.

As a result, we can often build walls without intending to.

The answer? Be intentional about who you are and who you interact with.  Business and life are hard enough on their own. Why make it more challenging by trying to get it right by yourself?

Being intentional takes time and effort, but the return is well worth the investment.

Take time to listen.

Take time to care.

Take time to respond when others are in need.

Take time to understand what others are trying to do in their lives and businesses.

People want to feel heard, and you have a unique opportunity to do just that.

Besides, let’s face it.  None of us have all the answers to all we need.

We need each other for support, ideas, encouragement, and a host of other things. So as you show up, others will show up for you and your community will grow.

Think about that.
