Get out of your head

It’s been a rough month. On second thought, maybe it’s been longer. I’m not really sure. I haven’t been blogging because, I didn’t think I had anything of value to share. I allowed outside circumstances to get in my head and I began to second guess everything that I had accomplished.

I’m now making a conscious decision to move past this bull shit and get out of my head. I’m going to get back to what makes me great and not let other distractions shake my confidence. Not any longer! Luckily, I was able to read through my past posts and motivate myself through this tough period. It’s time to take my own advice…

Never stop believing in yourself! Talk to you soon 🙂

Get started!

Where do you want to be a year from now? Have you given that question any thought?

Once you get a clear answer, get started immediately! Take the first step, whatever that might be. Get a book, sign up for a class, hit the gym, whatever step 1 might be. Just start moving towards your dreams and away from feeling shitty and discouraged. You’ve got this!

Never stop believing in yourself! Talk to you soon 🙂

Keep it moving!

Sometimes you’ll be intimited. Sometimes you’ll be afraid. Sometimes it will feel like it’s not worth it. Don’t allow that to stop you.

Remember why you are doing what you are doing. I am currently reading a leadership book by Jim Sullivan in which he says ‘the only thing stronger than fear is purpose’. Remember why you are doing it and keep pushing forward. The rest will take care of itself.

Happy Fathers Day!

Like pimpin’, fatherhood ain’t easy. It takes a real man to raise thier child. In many cases it is with the help of the mother and in others it’s not. Unlike having the child, choosing to stay around and be there for the child is never an accident.

I’d be remiss to not acknowledge the stepfathers and adoptive fathers. You make sacrifices to make an impact in a child’s life. You deserve equal credit for all that you do.

Happy Fathers Day to all the great dad’s out there!!

Be grateful for all that you have, but don’t stop working!

I know first hand just how dark things can seem sometimes. During the hard times, you study hard and workout hard in hopes to become better and stronger so I am in position to escape that apparent hell. Then ultimately, I find myself with the good job or partner I’ve been searching for. Life is good, right?

Well then I would become complaisant. I would stop studying so hard. And I’d stop working as hard. And before you know it, I am out of shape both physically and mentally.

Life is about balance. It’s about being happy and grateful for what we have but still working hard to maintain what we have and achieve more. I’ll admit that it’s easier said than done, but very important nonetheless.

Don’t be so hard on yourself!

I’ve found that I am usually much harder on myself when things go wrong. I would beat myself up and say the worst things to myself in my head. I would feel worthless and walk around upset and overwhelmed. That’s how I lived for the majority of my life.

But in time, I’ve learned that shit happens! Sometimes you screw up, and you just need to own it and move on. There is no need to beat yourself up and add meaning that isn’t necessary. Just laugh it off and fix it.

Never stop believing in yourself! Talk to you soon 🙂
