Sit back relax, and get ready for an uplifting chat about how to organise your thoughts and your schedule. So let’s get this started.
Has anyone ever shut your ideas down because they’re not ‘realistic’? That’s happened to me before- a lot of times.
I am reading a book currently called ‘She means business’ and in there is a quote that really resonated with me, it said:
‘What’ and ‘if’ are harmless words, however when you put them together side by side, they have the power to haunt you for the rest of your life’
Not only did this quote make me think about myself and the direction I was headed, it reassured me that if the path I’ve taken is the one where I follow my heart, then no matter the outcome- it was the right decision to make.
I thought I would share with you 3 of my top tips to give you some motivation, (aside from your morning coffee, we all need one of those!) to get the ball rolling in whichever direction it is you have been avoiding for all of the wrong reasons.
1. – A HAPPY AND HEALTHY MIND AND BODY –
This one doesn’t sound as important as it actually is to some people, me included. Lately I’ve been going to the gym, eating healthy (with the occasional treat of course!) and I think that it’s made a huge difference not only in my confidence but in the organisation of my thoughts. Who new that the best therapy derived from exercise and healthy eating? I mean, I’m never going to be the girl who says no to some chocolate and boasts this incredible willpower to defy my cravings, I just can’t do that food is too good, so don’t knock it. However, it’s always good to have a little detox every now and then and to try and make small changes that lead to big things.
2. – DIARY –
This year marks the first year that I’ve actually kept a diary, not necessarily for my thoughts, mainly just for me to keep to a schedule and to make myself a bit more organised. I love the idea of writing things down and being able to hold a diary, I think we’re far too easily slipping into making everything so robotic and computerised that it’s almost a nice added bonus that we can hold it and skim through the pages of our scruffy handwriting, and allow our ideas to jump of the page! This would be the one I recommend the most.
3. – SEPERATE YOUR FEELINGS –
Finally, the last thing is something I’ve recently discovered. I was watching a YouTube video, trying to muster the strength and motivation to get myself to the gym, eat healthy and become a more organised person. In the video the girl gave me 5 reasons as to why I should start the gym, and the last one was- just do it. Separate yourself from the way your emotions are swaying you, because if you change nothing then nothing changes. This is the one that gave me the determination to just chase after the Summer body I wanted, and in turn came a lot more from it.
I hope these 3 things help you discover some lost motivation, potential, or a thirst to make your ideas a reality. The most important thing I hope you get from this, is that sometimes ‘realistic’ isn’t always the mindset that gets you to where you want to be. You have to be the change you want to see, a little bit of a cringe quote but oh it’s so true.
Love as always,
