Not every day in any our lives is perfect. Life, on occasion is going to knock you down, face it. It’s a fact. Life happens. It is how you respond that affects the outcome. You have choices to either dwell on the situation, or you can accept what has happened, pick yourself up and rebuild. It’s not always easy, but the harder we work to grow and overcome the more we learn. What we learn from situations builds knowledge, experience, satisfaction and confidence.
Access your success! So often we dwell on the negative situations of life and let them beat us up and wear us down, rather than look at the many successes in life. Be mindful of the positive things you do. Life does not need to be complicated. Focus on one thing at a time, step by step. Begin with the basics and work to build a solid foundation you can build upon. Simple things like smiling, taking a walk and eating healthy always help, along with good sleep habits. Your power comes from within you.
Take time to breathe take in your surroundings. When you are feeling a bit overwhelmed, practice your power pose, standing tall with your hands on your hips and legs at shoulder level. Close your eyes and breathe in and out slowly. You can do this is a quiet place. How does this help you? You will find that this grounds you and dramatically increases your confidence. So simple and it works. It brings out the SHEro and HEro powers within you!
Quit over thinking and over analyzing yourself. Give yourself more credit. Create a support team of a few people who are there for you when you need it, your cheering team. If you are alone, create a tag line or cheer to move you forward. Find your safe happy place to go to help center and ground you. For me that place is water, lakes, streams, rivers, ocean even a small pond.
You do not need to go the long haul alone. Confiding in a friend or family member can help. Sometimes sharing ideas, and challenges helps to identify successful creative solutions. There are many strategies, tips and tools to help you along your way. You will never know what works best for you until you try. As you try set you and your attitude to the right mindset. Having a positive mindset and attitude are always the first steps to success and the great thing about attitude and mindset is that they cost nothing and is something each person is in charge of.
Remember anything worth achieving is worth working for. Build you and your success step by step. Move negative influences aside, focus and move forward step by step. Build you to where you want to go.
Moral: You do not become what you want to be, you become what you believe you can be.
