Let’s face it, we all stand in our own way more often than not.
We have these high hopes and dreams, but we remain in paralysis because we simply don’t believe we have what it takes. Or maybe we do, but we keep procrastinating and waiting for our future self to take the difficult steps towards success.
And that’ll never happen, right?
But the world needs you, your voice and your talent. So, let’s get out of our own way with these 7 Kick-ass tips.
1. Train your action muscle with one small action a day
Take small actions in any area of your life on a daily basis to get comfortable moving forward in life.
2. Understand your thoughts
Your thoughts run like a well-oiled engine. They keep repeating themselves every single day. You can’t change that, but you can change the reaction you have to what’s going on inside your mind.
3. Trust yourself
Believe in yourself and know that everyone experiences fear. The more you trust that you do what you’re meant to do the better.
4. Exercise to test your limits
There’s nothing more empowering than overcoming mental barriers in the gym. Try to really stretch your comfort zone and see how much more open to change you’ll be if you keep practicing this simple step.
5. Create healthy habits
Start a journal, practice gratitude, eat clean, stay positive and speak in gentle tones to yourself.
6. Surround yourself with the right people
The more positive, creative, happy and ambitious friends you have the more you’ll adopt these characteristics. Another great way to stay on track is to have an accountability partner or a mastermind group.
7. Create a vision board to know where you’re headed
You can’t create your future if you don’t know what it is you actually want. So, take some time for yourself and create a vision board with words, pictures, phrases, mantras, anything. This is fun and serves as a great reminder when you feel down and unmotivated.
