Pep Talk

There’s Nothing Like a Pep Talk

Today I needed a bit of inspiration.

Not feeling like my usual self I got an unexpected call.

I’ve been wanting to take my business to the next level and actually got a call today from a potential mentor.

Blogging has been a part of my daily activities for the past 4 months.

While things have been moving along at an exciting pace for me I find myself getting stuck some days.

Not really feeling like my vision has a clear path.

The call was much needed and the pep talk has given me new inspiration.

When it comes to blogging or anything online you think you can do it all alone.

Don’t make it so difficult!

There are many people who have walked in your same shoes and have been through the fire.

Why not open yourself up and ask for help?

One thing you’ve got to realize is that ego can get in the way and instead of leading you in the right direction it can hinder you and ever worse hold you back from getting the thing you desire most.

Get Rid of the Ego

These past few months have been difficult for me personally because of EGO and PRIDE.

Not wanting to ask for help, not wanting to seek guidance, and not wanting to take a step back to really see where I’ve been and where I’m going.

Life is funny like that at times, but no matter how many times you mess up you have the opportunity to make a change and fix it.

The change must start within.

And to start that change from within you must let go of that ego.

You can’t make a change if you don’t realize there is a problem first.

I get it…

It’s hard really taking a serious look at yourself and realizing that you need to change.

Realizing that what you’re doing isn’t leading you to the promise land.

It’s hard, but it’s necessary if you want to do better.

It’s easy to get comfortable and think that what you have or where you are at is all that life has to offer.

You’ve got to continue to make yourself uncomfortable if you desire more out of life.

You Get What You Put In

Nothing worth having in life comes easy.

You’re going to have to buckle down and be uncomfortable for a bit.

Change is uncomfortable and until you’re ready to change you’ll continue to get the same results you’ve been getting in your life.

I’ve made the decision to really make a change in my life with many aspects.

Really taking a look at the things I’ve become comfortable with in my life and deciding that something different needs to be done.

3 Steps to Making a Change In Your Life

Knowing yourself is the most important thing a person can have in this life.

If you don’t know who you are you’ll let people and things influence you.

Don’t be that person.

Take control of your life and take a stand on who you want to be.

If you’re stuck, lost, or confused about things going on in your life right now follow these steps:

1. Write Down the Change You Desire

One of the issues with most people is they don’t know what they want.

I lot of people know what they don’t want, but can’t necessarily pinpoint the things they do want.

Take out a few sheets of paper and pencil and jot down everything that comes to mind that you want out of life.

Write down the what’s going right in your life and what’s not going so right.

Find solutions to the problems you’re having and get started on making them happen.

Make a list of your good qualities and the qualities you need to improve on.

There’s a site that I found that gives you exercises in figuring out who you are and how to improve.

Check it out when you get a chance and complete the exercises => Know Thyself <=.

They worked wonders for me and I hope the same for you.

If you can find someone to do them with you even better.

2. Find Someone to Hold You Accountable

When it comes to making change it’s not going to be easy to do it alone.

If you don’t have anyone to hold you accountable for the things you’re supposed to be doing to change, you will easily revert back to your same old ways.

The person you are has become a habit and you’re comfortable with it.

It’s not going to be easy to make the changes you desire if you don’t have someone to assist you along the way.

After writing down the changes you desire share it with someone.

This exercise helps you to put your ego to the side and helps you build a better relationship.

It’s okay to be vulnerable.

You can also invite them to do the exercises with you.

3. Go Over You Exercises Daily

There’s no point of completing the exercises if you’re just going to go over them one time.

If you want to make a lasting change you must review them daily until the words become a part of you.

Review them a least twice a day.

Once before bed and once when you wake up.

Any other time during the day is icing on the cake.

Use your words to fuel you.

Keep the change you desire most on your mind and you will begin to see you new you over time.

It’s going to take some practice, but it’s all worth it in the end if you truly want to make a lasting change.

Begin today to create the life you want.

Don’t allow others to shape who you are.

Take life head on and master yourself.

Best Wishes!
