You don’t need to set a goal to get unfit!
Reflecting on the week (we made it!) and a couple of habits which have crept back in...
I believe that if you aren’t changing it, you’re choosing it.
This weekend it’s time to get back on the path. I’m
choosing positive, healthy habits.
What are you choosing to change?
We succeed, we grow. We fail, we grow.
When we don’t know, we grow. If we let ourselves...
Too often, success and failure don’t lead to growth. Growth mindset has become a bit of a buzzword but at the heart, it is choosing to grow when you hit adversity or when you land a win.
I often say
Forget the failure, learn the lesson
Choose a growth mindset. Choose to learn and grow.
You may have grown, changed, evolved and be more capable than you were before... yet you choose to hold on to limiting beliefs that are no longer useful, relevant or real.
These beliefs stop you from trying, doing and being.
These beliefs stop you from becoming.
Choose what you hold on to, choose what stories you tell yourself. You can choose.
What do you need to achieve this year?
How can you play to your strengths to achieve your goals?
What is on your To-Do list?
What is on your To-Be List?
Take the time to write down your goals for the year ahead.
Busy, distracted, balancing the daily demands...? Often we run from one thing to the next with half an eye on one thing and our mind on something else. We’re not doing anything well and we quickly fall into overwhelm.
Today I’m out of the office in a full-day workshop while my team are dealing with a heavy workload and stress load. I feel torn. I’m so proud of my team and want to be there to support them but I know they’ve got this. I need to give myself permission to be in the room and focus on the people I’m with.
So, breathe in,...
I get it. Busy busy. Every moment filled and rushing to the next. Hoping for a moment of peace and quiet.
Balancing everyone else's needs and trying to squeeze in moments of time for you.
Today's challenge: how can you spend more moments in the moment?
You need to Name it to Tame it. Whether you’re peeking under the corner of your mental rug where you’ve swept your stuff or you’re diving into the deep end to swim through your stuff... before you move forward, before you accept or embrace it, before you work through it... you need to label it.
By giving it a name, you can start to work on it.
Until then it’s just a mess.
The name can be one you give or it can be one you recognise when you are learning from others, and then apply to yourself. The name may evolve over time as you...
We know HOW we respond is a choice.
HOW we think about things is also a choice, a decision.
Whether you call it mindset or attitude, or something else... Where we let our mind go to, how long we let it stay there.. our thoughts, our thinking is within our control.
We’ve known this since the ancient Greeks and Romans.
The happiness of your life depends upon the quality of your thoughts ~ Marcus Aurelius
I find solace and inspiration in these words from thousands of years ago. It reminds me to fill my mind with goodness, to read, to learn, to think.
Easy to forget or not make...
