Life Tip: Catch Your Balance Quickly

On your road to Destiny, Friend, you are going to have good days and bad days. Often times our “bad days” are nothing more than momentary lapses of memory; times when we slip out of our true selves. Fear, anxiety, disappointment, or some other negative force, seeps in and nudges us off course.

It’s easy, at this point, to fall back into old habits and patterns. But don’t panic. You haven’t totally fallen, you’re just slipping. Catch your balance quickly, make the necessary adjustments, and get right back to being you.

Some adjustments are quick and easy: a deep breath, a new thought, a different perspective. While other adjustments require taking an entire day off, shutting down the project, walking away from it all for a few days.

Signs that we are slipping include:
1. Sudden negative thoughts that deplete our self worth
2. Our hot buttons get pushed easier.
3. Doubt seeps in and begins to destroy our self confidence
4. Lack of focus, creativity, and desire to do what we love.
5. We think, all of a sudden, we need someone’s help.
6. Suddenly we feel like eating everything in site!

Whatever caused you to begin to slip in the first place isn’t important. What’s important is that you recognize that you are slipping, that you catch your balance quickly, that you make the necessary adjustments, and that you get back to being you as soon as possible!

The next time you feel yourself slipping, don’t panic. You haven’t totally fallen at this point. Catch your balance quickly, make the necessary adjustments, and get right back to being you!

Wednesday’s Word: You Never Have To Force Yourself Into What Fits

Frustration can be an indication that you are trying to fit in where you don’t belong.

Everything is new at first. There’s a warming up period to every new place. There’s a get-to-know-you phase with every new tribe. But sooner than later you should ‘settle in’ and feel like you fit.

If you feel like you just don’t fit in…you probably don’t.

If you find yourself frustrated because no one seems to listen to you or care about your opinion, don’t take it personally. Don’t keep wasting your time and energy. ‘Move on down, move on down, the road.’

Don’t force yourself to fit in; your gift works best when it’s celebrated not just tolerated.

You are too important to waste your time with people who don’t get you. Don’t be desperate to belong. Remember, you never have to force yourself into what fits.

Monday Mindset: “Never Quit Quitting. It’s Key To Winning!”

Did you promise yourself you would quit by now? Did you quit once and then start up again?

Never quit quitting. It’s key to winning.

Each time you make a conscious decision to quit a bad habit, a negative thought, or a toxic relationship, you gain more ground.

Some things are easy to change, while others take time. Be resilient.

If you’ve broken your promise make a new one. Don’t wallow in what you didn’t do, or what you should have done, make a fresh commitment to a being a better you and quit again.

Never quit quitting. It’s key to winning.
