Don’t let them change you!

Sometimes, shit happens! Someone might be mad at you because they misinterpreted something you said. Sometimes they might be mad because you screwed up. Or they might just be jealous of you.

Either way, you just need to accept it and move on. Be the bigger person and apologize for the situation. Then, spend little time dwelling on it and wait for them to come around(warning, they may not come around at all).

But whatever you do, don’t let them change who you are to please them. You can’t give them that power.

Never stop believing in yourself. Talk to you soon 🙂

Take Time to Reflect!

I have spent the past few days in one of my favorite places, Wildwood NJ. My fiancee could tell that I was starting to get burned out and needed a small break. I couldn’t see it at the time, but she couldn’t have been more right!

I was stressed out about work, finances, weight loss ups and downs, etc. I have had a chance to clear my mind and look at my life from more of a birds eye view. I was going through the day to day grind and I wasn’t able to see the forest through the trees! That is, I was working so hard without stopping, that I wasn’t able to see the big picture of what was going on.

What I personally realized, is that I have been spending way too much time on the wrong things. When I sat back and assessed my life, I realized that I was working really hard in a direction towards goals that I do not want, and not putting enough energy into achieving my goals and dreams. It left me feeling unsatisfied and angry. I have a much better idea of what I am going to stop doing, and what I am going to spend much more time doing in its place!

Make it happen!

My last post was about setting goals and clarifying your vision. Find time to do so before you move on to the next step.

Now that you’ve set your goals, it’s time to make it happen. Ask yourself, what actions can I take today that will get me to my goals. Where will I be in a year if I continue to make the small errors in judgement everyday? Make the right decisions daily and you will live your life of success and happiness before you know it.

Where are you headed?

What are your goals? What are you dreams? This is not a rhetorical question. Do you know?

You need to know where you are heading before you can get there. It has been said many times and many ways. Such as:

“You are the driver of your bus” -Jon Gordon

“Begin with the end in mind” -Dr. Stephen Covey

You need to set your goals and write them down. Once you know where you want to go and really commit to it, your mind will start answering the question of how you will get there.

Focus more on your goals and less on your problems. Your mind will continue to give you more of what you are focused on.

Learn to Rest!

If you are going to be successful, you need to learn how to find balance in your life. If you try to go full speed all day long, you will burn yourself out. You need to find time to relax and recover. Also, find time to read and exercise to keep your mind and body fresh and sharp. This will keep you fresh and ready for when opportunity knocks!

How Reliable are you?

Are you someone who can be counted on to be there when you are supposed to? Are you considerate to others and start and end meetings or appointments on time? To be successful, you need to be reliable and trustworthy. If your track record is a good one, people will more than likely consider you for more responsibility and/or promotions.

It all starts with the basics. So be early, dress the part, and bring your smile and positive energy.

Back at it Again

So.. another Day 1. After a couple of weeks of letting myself go I’m back at it. Starting with a training day today and tomorrow to kick things off. I have regained most of my weight and was discouraged when I found out just how much yesterday.

So why post this? Why not just handle it behind the scenes and post once I lose the weight? The answer is simple, because we are in this together. We all slip up from time to time and we need to own it and move forward. I look forward to the more positive updates going forward.

Never stop believing in yourself! Talk to you soon 🙂
