Set Yourself Up for Success
If you’ve ever looked at someone else and thought they are so lucky’ or ‘they are so happy’, then I want you to keep reading! Because I believe you can all be ‘that person’, simply by working on your mindset.
Becoming mentally stronger is something you work at every day. Just think of it as building up your mental muscles!
These are a few tips I want to share to help you build a strong, positive mindset!
1. Learn to acknowledge bad days for what they are
Bad days happen to everyone! While sometimes it might be a bad week, rather than just one bad day —but it’s important not to let it get to you.
It’s absolutely okay to feel angry or upset if something goes wrong, just remember that it doesn’t determine the rest of your week, month, or year.
To build a strong mindset, you have to come to terms with the fact that obstacles will come up, but know that you have the strength to get through them.
A bad day shouldn’t stop you from living your life, but it can be hard to feel ready to try something new if you’re thinking about something bad that happened last week. Next time you have a bad day, do something to boost your confidence and see how much better you feel!
2. Take action
To develop a strong mindset, you have to learn to take action when you’re scared. I know that sounds pretty terrifying, but it can also be incredibly rewarding.
I used to hate doing FB lives, but I also realized it was important to do it if I wanted to share my message. Instead of worrying that I was speaking in front of people, I started to think of it as an opportunity to connect with and empower women.
Because I was passionate about sharing that message, I had to step outside of my comfort zone. I love that it is an opportunity to connect with amazing people!
3. Reflect on your progress every day
If you happen to miss a workout, negative thoughts can creep in and may even make you feel as though you want to quit. Try making a note of the progress you’ve made because it can make a big difference.The TLN planner can help encourage you, keep you on track, and remind you of all the positive changes you’re making in your life!
You could also try taking a moment at the end of the day to ask yourself what you learned, what you could improve on, and where you want to go tomorrow.
Strengthening your mindset takes a bit of time and practice, but it’s so worth it! Even if you feel mentally strong, I think there is always room for a little improvement.
Remember, every day is an opportunity to shape your life into what YOU want it to be! It really does all start in your mind.
