You Are Destined For The Top…Nothing Less.

ballons

Have you ever tried to immerse a balloon in water?

You try hard with both hands, but what do you experience?

The balloon always comes back to the top.

It does not matter the color  or texture of the balloon, it will always come back to the top.

Why?

The content of the balloon …

A similar thing happens when you release a balloon in the air…it floats away to the sky.

The air inside the balloon makes it rise to top

Everyone of us carry the potential in us to rise to the top

You are destined for the top…

You may experience set backs or disappointments .

Painful as it may be, never allow that to keep you down.

Never allow the confidence you have in yourself or in your God to slip away.

Tap into the strength within and rise to your full potential.

Stay strong, stay motivated, you are unstoppable!

2 Simple Strategies To Spring Forward…Finish Strong

Athletes

As we enter the final quarter of the year, many thoughts may come to mind.

Thoughts such as: ” this year has been amazing, plans roll out as intended or maybe : ” I need to push harder and accomplish all I have to accomplish”

Whatever the thoughts following through your mind right now, you can spring forward and finish the year strong. Here are some tips:

1. Quality Reflective Time: So many times we go so fast that we do not take time to reflect and think.

Take a pen and your journal, sit down in a quiet place and think. Think about where you want to be at the end of the year.

Think about where you are now, what do you daily that has led you this far?

What do you need to do differently?

Write all these thoughts down.

Project new daily routines that could help you.

Write them all down.

It does not matter how far away you are from where you want to be.

Make time to think about how to reset your life to get the results you desire.

Think deeply about the future you want to create, let the desire fire you up!

Be energized to go for your dreams! You can do it!!

2. Get a coach: If you ever want to accomplish anything faster, get a coach!

A coach will help you stay on course, push you to go further than you can go on your own.

Someone that will hold you accountable while encouraging you.

I love working with a coach and I have more that one really.

A fitness coach,  business coach…, it all depends on where you are in this phase of your life. Get someone who will push you forward in your journey.

Make sure your coach has gone further than you, not someone aspiring to be where you are.

Success in any area of life is intentional, choose the path to success today!!

How To Stay Focused When You Feel Like Giving Up

Athletes

The dedication and determination of athletes come to mind when I think about goals and life plans.

When we set goals, and obstacles come our way what do we do?

Just throw in the towel and move to another project or set new goals?

No! We keep running towards our goals with our eyes set on the finish line like an athlete would.

Can you imagine an athlete competing at the Olympics giving-up?

No, they don’t and the main reason is because they are determined and committed to their goals.

I recently watched an athlete compete and he sprained his ankle during the race. He had legitimate reasons to quit the race and nurse his sprained ankle but guess what? He did not, he kept running and limping with his eyes fixed on the finish line till the very end.

Here are two simple strategies to stay focused:

1. Think about why you started : Why did you decide to write that book ? Or why did you decide to go back to college?

When you feel like quitting, take a moment to reflect on why you started the venture in the first place.

Carefully think about how much successfully completing the task will mean to you.

What will be the impact of quitting on you and your loved ones ?

It does not take any effort to quit, you simply stop trying.

However, success awaits those who persevere and refuse to give up.

Remember : “winners never quit and quitters never win” – Robert Schuller

2. Stay Motivated :  It is important to stay motivated at all times, especially during difficult times.

” People often say motivation does not last,  well, neither does bathing and that’s why we recommend it daily.” – Zig Ziglar

Listen to people who inspire you and call forth the best in you. Look for and make time to read or listen to resources that inspire you.

Most importantly, inspire yourself. Think back on tough times that you have faced and succeeded. Draw strength from knowing that this will not be any different either.

Self motivation is the most powerful form of motivation. So look at your self in the mirror and say:

“My best days are ahead of me, I am destined for greatness.

I am not a quitter, I am a winner, I win always.”

Don’t give up! Stay Focused!

You are destined to win!

2 Valuable Tips When Transitioning To The Next Level

 

You Are The Writer Of Your Own Story written on desert road

Have you ever been through a phase in your life where it appears as if you are moving out of your comfort zone?

Just when you thought everything is perfect, your routine established , then change comes.

This change is not always desirable or easy to handle.

Most times it is uncomfortable, you feel like you have been stretched.

I have been there and  I can categorically tell you that I really did not like it.

However, I found so much fulfillment outside my comfort zone that the stretching is worth it.

These are tips I found really valuable during transitions in my life, hope you find them useful too.

Stretching may be uncomfortable but beneficial :

Knowing with certainty in your heart that  growth and progress lie outside of your comfort zone is  encouraging.

Beyond the stretching and the discomfort that may come with it lie your desired end.

Think about adopting  a new exercise regimen,

After your first exercise routine, you feel the pain and  discomfort that comes with exercise muscles being worked on for the first time.

No matter how you feel after the first exercise routine, if you persevere the discomfort will disappear and your well toned muscles will emerge.

The same thing applies to our lives as well. When you  persevere, not only will the pain become a thing of the past but your life will be moved to a whole new level.

No matter what the going feels like right now, remember this:

“ Tough times never last but tough people do”- Robert Schuler

Keep the end in mind and fully understand all things are working for your good.

Stay Motivated:

Transition period could be emotionally draining and thoughts of quitting may  persist.

It is important to stay motivated now, more than ever.

Using the analogy of an exercise regimen used earlier.

When adopting a new exercise regimen, some practical things keep you going when you feel like quitting.

Having a coach or finding peer support keeps you motivated.

I remember when I started running, running with a friend was quite helpful to me.

Even if you do not have a personal coach, find motivational resources online or videos on YouTube  to  listen to.

You can even look at your self in the mirror and encourage yourself. Declare the desired end, even when nothing looks like it right now.

Call yourself what you want to be and begin to create the world you desire with your words.

Believe in yourself and believe in God and nothing will be impossible to you!!
