Where’s your head at?

Life has it’s ups and downs. It can be smooth one week and challenging the next.

What is your mind set on through all this?

 I hope it is your goals! If life needs to be constant in order for you to keep your mind on your goal then nobody would achieve anything. It is the ability to get back on the “bike” and keep cycling that makes the difference.

Here are a few pointers to what keeps me motivated.

Surround yourself with like minded people who also want to achieve similar goals. When you have a low day and you confer with them they can remind you why you are doing this and likewise you can encourage them.

Be crystal clear about what your goal is and refine it if you are not clear. The clearer the goal the easier it is to reach out and achieve it. Build a vision board that has pictures of things or emotions that you would feel when you reached your goal.

Work on daily affirmations. Look in the mirror and tell yourself the goal but in the present tense. eg. I am … and it is May 31, 2010. You will not only be focusing on your own success but your mind cannot dwell on negatives while you are doing this. The effect will be you reprogramming your subconcious which is what controls your actions.

When you are feeling swamped with challenging stuff sit down and make a list of five things in your day that you are currently grateful for. It will help you to see that it is not all that bad and “this too shall pass”.

Maybe you have had an experience that got you out of the slump. Please leave your comments below. I always love reading them.

Cheers Coach Tim James

    It is good to be reminded of the steps to take when life seems to weigh down on you (seems like this is one of those weeks).

    One thing that I’ve had to learn is that sometimes I need to look at my goals and prioritize and reorganize. Sometimes what I am spending all my time on isn’t that important and if I let go of the small things to focus on the important things, life seems to bring clarity.

    Thanks for your this post Coach.
