Try again and keep hope alive

It is easy to sit back and let life pass you by. Everyone fears failure, but the one sure way to fail at something is to never give it a go. So today, I encourage you to be brave, step out and try, because trying is the first step to succeeding.

 

 

Achievement doesn’t happen immediately. Most of the time it’s a slow uphill walk. But gradually, over time, the landscape changes, you near the top, and suddenly you’re there.

When you feel you can’t move another step, when you feel crippled with fear, watch something that will make you laugh. Dance when life rains down on you. You will be amazed at what a difference this will make.

 

Next time something embarrassing happens to you,  don’t think of how embarrassing it is, don’t beat yourself up about something you can’t change, instead re-frame the story in your mind. Think about how you will tell the story to your friends to make it a funny and entertaining. Let the story you tell make you smile and laugh out loud.

 

Right now, it may  seem like you are stuck in a dark tunnel; like the pain, fear and desperation you feel is just how your life will be. But that is not true. You won’t always feel this way; people, situations, locations and feelings all change. Think of other times in your life where you felt like nothing would change. Now remember that they did.

Day-11 (21)Mange your time #21daygoalchallenge

Why you need to mange your times if you want to achieve your goals

Time management is important for your personal life, career  and business success. It teaches you how to manage your time effectively and make the most of it. so that you can achieve your goals. If you don’t manage your time, you will find yourself being stressed as you rush to completed tasks at the last minute and this will also have an effect on all areas of your life.

 

Do you really have to do that activity?

Life today presents so many distractions, and therefore, it is very easy to lose time on unimportant activities. Ask yourself, is watching this or that TV program, reading this or that gossip or participating in a certain activity is going to add anything to your life. Is the time spent on a particular activity well spent, or is just a waste of time and energy?

 

Before you do something, give yourself time to think about it. Yesterday, my plan was to stay home, relax, de –clutter my room and then cook a healthy Sunday dinner for my boys and I.  At about 11am, I found out their was an event  which I wanted to attend. As I was getting ready to go, suddenly, I had to think why I wanted to go to the event – after a few minutes I realised that if I went to the event it meant that I won’t be able to spend my precious time with my boys, and I would have had to pay out at least £30  which I had not budgeted for and this will then have an effect on the things I had budgeted for. So in the end I chose not to go to the event.

 

 

Have a to do list

Having a to-do list puts some structure around your tasks and acts as a driver to get things done. Make sure your to do lists, covers also areas  of your life so that you can have balance.  Always plan your time well and don’t waste it on useless matters. Be careful not to procrastinate, and do everything in the best way you can, with focus and attention, as this will help you achieve your gools.

  • Write a to-do list at the start of each week – and update it every day so you’re always on top of the tasks that are needed.
  • Use a notebook, your smart phone or a cloud-based app  so you always have a list of what needs doing, wherever you are.
  • Tick off or scribble through the tasks you’ve completed – it makes it easier to see what’s left to complete and you get the satisfaction of seeing how much you’ve achieved this week (giving you a personal sense of achievement)

Prioritise your time

It’s time to wake up and unleash my potential #MondayMotivation

At times, we may have days when we feel useless and insignificant, especially if you find yourself without a job and are struggling to make ends meet.

In moments like these, we need to wipe our tears of regret, and defeat! Slowly breath in and out and say out loud “ My life may not be perfect, but the very fact that I am alive today is a moment for me to rejoice and celebrate my life.  I will take life as it comes positively one day at a time. I will take a few moments to be grateful and thankful to be woken up to see another day as many did not wake up today”.

When life is not going the way we had hoped!

bepreparedThe other day I overheard a lady on the train discussing with  her friend the fact that at 58 she was expecting to have retired, paid of her mortgage, be debt free, live in a beautiful home, raise wonderful independent children, and be travelling to different destinations with her husband.

 

This really got me thinking too, as I find myself in a similar situation where my life seems at times to be in a rot and this gets me frustrated when I want to do something and I cant because I don’t have the necessary finances to do so. It can be challenging at times especially when you work so hard and yet still cannot enjoy the money as we are consumed by bills and debts.   Below are some of the things I try to do to help me overcome challenges I face. I hope you find them useful,

endofatunnel

 

How to create the life you want to experience

 

Take stock of your life right now – write down all the good stuff , and then write down all the challenges you are facing ring now,

 

Look at all the challenges you are facing and next to each answer-

What have you done in the past to resolve it?

Who do you know who has gone through this situation and will be willing to help you? If you don’t know someone, try to search on the internet .

 

Goal – Write down what you want to happen about this challenge you are facing how will it make you feel once you have resolved it, and how you will celebrate overcoming this challenge?

 

Options – Write down all the possible things you could do to resolve things

Obstacles – Write down everything that you feel will prevent you from taking a particular option

Overcome the obstacles – Write down everything that you could do to overcome each obstacle and remember at this stage to also get help from others, as sometimes when we are going through challenges it can be difficult to see the solution. I find it useful to search the internet and read stories about people who have a similar challenge to me and how they overcame it. You could also look for support groups online or in your local area

 Solution – Look at all your options and select the one which you feel is best for you.

Action – At this stage you must be willing and committed do the things that will help you overcome the challenge you are facing. Taking action also means developing new habits and having a diary where you can plan the actions you are going to take. I tend to procrastinate at times, so I belong to a small network of people who want to succeed in life, and we support and encourage each other on a regular basis.

Positive Mindset – Despite challenges we face, we must tray and develop a positive mindset and attitude which involves believing and knowing that our challenges are temporary and there is light at the end of a tunnel!

 

Stay Confident and don’t every give up!
