Welcome to Motivational Thursday! Over the next few weeks I will introduce you to some of the simple concepts of human thought processes and how you can use these to help yourself and those around you.
It’s all about you – how do you treat yourself?
If you spoke to your best friend the way you speak to yourself, how long would they be your best friend?
How can you expect to achieve the things in your life that you value when you are self sabotaging through your daily self talk?
Did you know that everyone has days where they doubt their abilities?
You can use this to your advantage to realize that you are not any different to anyone else and that your doubts and fears are normal.
The key is to use these moments to make you stronger and determined to achieve what it is that is important to you.
Identifying appropriate goals – ask yourself, ‘what are my core values?’
Keep reading over the next few weeks to determine what your true motivators are.
Goals set without connecting to your core value systems will either be unfulfilling when achieved or may never be completed as you will lose motivation before reaching the goal.
Setting yourself up for a successful outcome every time.
This will be a series of successful methods to help you deal with success and failure.
How to stay focused when life gets in the way.
The next step will focus on time management and how to prioritise your hour, day, week, month and year.
The last step will be how to have more fun and enjoy every moment – learning the skill of staying present and how this will reduce the stress in your life plus help you achieve the things you value and desire.
See you again next week for more on step 1.
Till then try this fun challenge:
Smile at every person you walk past – the gift you are sharing will make them feel better and costs you nothing (and the best part is it makes you feel better too!).
