1.Follow Your Passion
Find something you love doing and pursue it! The only way to do great work is to love the work you do. If you find yourself feeling down and out & miserable, set some goals. If you are not being fulfilled, find out what your interests are and take steps to follow what keeps you up at night. When you are working in your passion it doesn’t feel like work, it feels like purpose.
You only have one life to live, do not waste precious moments building something you do not want to live in.
Wear your confidence well.
I believe that life is 85 % what you make it, always be aware of your attitude, simply changing your perspective, can & will change your life. When you cultivate a sense of gratitude you immediately boost your mental and physical health. A grateful mindset, makes life great because you are no longer finding things to complain about, which leads to stress. You are so thankful for the small things many people take for granted,ex. simple things such as being able to try again, enjoy the outdoors, and be above ground. Living with a grateful intention in mind attracts positive energy. Use the right words, because there is power in the way we talk about ourselves and others. Give back, and always say thank you, are good practice habits to be grateful.
The more positive your outlook, the more things come along that will add to your cup.
The key ingredient to being great is to never stop learning. Most people who get comfortable where they are remain average. Yet, if you want to be the best, you have to train, and think like you are capable of being the best. This means staying up to date on trends in your industry, studying your craft, and reading self-help (motivational books). A client of mine told me it is better to be a learn it all, than a know it all. That statement is so true. Allowing yourself to learn something new, keeps your mind fresh, and focused. Be wise my friends. No matter how old you get, or how many degrees you have, try learning something new.
Just like plants need water, our brains thirst for knowledge.
Own up to your mistakes. If you created a problem, don’t point fingers to blame others. As life matures us, we begin to no longer blame others for our shortcomings, and look within to change our outlook. Don’t just go with the flow, create the flow. Own your life, by making choices that make you happy, and don’t apologize for it. You can live life, and not be a jerk to others. If you fail/or make a mistake keep going. Learn the lesson, and continue to improve. If you don’t analyze your actions to the point where you can own up to your doings, then you may have bigger problems. Taking ownership, sets you up to be an effective leader, and well respected. We hold ourselves back from growth by putting our issues off on others because we are too afraid to handle them. Be real and honest with yourself, and I assure you being honest with others will come naturally.
Keep your word, and hold yourself accountable.
In order to be great, you have to take care of your star player….YOU. That means taking breaks. Listen to your body. Get rest, you are human, not a robot. Staying healthy, will actually make you more productive. Eating greasy food, not only brings about health issues later on, but also makes you feel groggy, and less upbeat. Save yourself the regret of not taking care of the only body you get, before hospital bills make you pay for it. I am not saying go on an extreme diet, but practice healthy eating habits, find a workout routine that gets your brain a break, and keep your body fueled with water. Flush out the bad, and in take the good. Breathe in. And handle it. Push away the fries. And show yourself some love. Your body will thank you for it.
