Design a new you and live it daily
At the start of a new year we all jump in and make a resolution. We are ready, excited and committed to stick to it, and then April comes and we miss a day and quit. But here’s the truth. When you are designing a new you, you must live the new you daily. There is no other way. You can’t quit because of a challenge or because of a setback.
Setbacks happen to all of us. I’m the first to tell you I have had many setbacks. As a matter of fact this morning I had every intention of working out and was running late to head out to a conference (NAB and Superwoman Unchained) and had to dump the conventional workout to show up on time for my conference. And sure I was mad and wanted to beat myself up about not getting my fitness schedule in. But here’s the truth. There is still time for me to do it if I am really committed.
Which leads to the question of commitment.
You have to ask yourself how important is this thing you want if you are quitting after a set back?
I can’t be mad and blame myself and quit and think oh that’s so bad of me. I could say that, but where would that get me?
No where. Except maybe stuck.
That thinking will keep you stuck and prohibit you from getting back on track of designing life and living it. It’s all a mindset thing.
How you think determines your actions.
We have to stop the inner criticism of ourselves and definitely the criticism of others. Because the reality is, how is that harsh criticism really serving the direction of how we want things to go?
It isn’t serving you to move forward. So dump the criticism.
Which leads me to state, if people in your life are giving you a hard time for missing a day of a routine you created for yourself, it’s time to take a stance and get them to be more positive and encouraging. And the way to do that is to tell them what you need and how they can help.
Seems so simple right?
But we don’t do it. We sit back and just let things happen and possibly escalate until it wrecks the relationship.
So to avoid that, sit down at the moment it happens and really have the face to face, heart to heart and really ask for what you want.
Because if you are not asking for what you want, you won’t get it. Not in a million years. Won’t happen.
Most of us sit back and are waiting on what we want in life to show up. But believe me it’s not like this amazing dream you are wishing for is going to manifest it’s pretty little head in a box with a fancy ribbon and ring your doorbell.
Our dreams are not available on Amazon prime delivery. If it was I would be the first in line. But since it isn’t, I have to be clear and ask for what I want and get to doing the work daily to bring it into reality. There is no other way.
Design the life, live it.
