Mirror on the wall

I believe that all around us we have tools to empower ourselves. Using a mirror can really set you up for the day and it can challenge you to  be conscious of your motivations, and when you  look at yourself in the mirror every morning, the things that push you to be successful are staring right at you. 

So, I challenge you, right now, to grab a piece of paper and a pen and take the  mirror challenge!

Everyone’s morning mirror motivations may be different, but the important aspects of this challenge are that you take the time to think about everything that motivates you on a daily basis, write them down to make these ideas come to life, and place this list somewhere that will constantly remind you of these, such as your mirror.

The only person that is stopping you from achieving your goals or dreams is you and face the challenge head on by taking ownership of you. Don’t be afraid to stand up to yourself and make your mirror a powerful motivational tool.

Never underestimate the power within you, because you may be the only person in the entire universe to solve a specific problem. – Gift Gugu Mona

It might feel strange when you first look at yourself in the mirror and start the chat with yourself? 

But trust me you have greatness in you and don’t be afraid to tell “you” what you want to achieve and also what you are  grateful for, and great at!!

Thank you,

Change gear and drive!

Today me and my fellow life coach Sunil Naphray were talking on Loose Men. I made a point that we are all guilty at times living our lives like we are on Cruise control.

If we approach life this way it can be very comfortable and we will only move forward at a certain speed that feels relaxing and safe.

If you continue living like this change can then feel uncomfortable and to move forward will not be so easy to predict. Yet also you won’t be prepared for any unwanted changes that life’s journey may bring?

However, at some point, if you are wanting more from your life you need to put your foot on the pedal and start to drive. You want to get up in the morning, start your engine, take hold of the steering wheel, put your foot on your pedal, and drive!

You want to be the one who dictates your speed, direction, and use of the brake. And you want to open the window and feel the wind in your hair and drive towards the action of making your dreams come true. 

If we persist with the cruise control approach to life you can’t achieve the goals and to live your life from comfort there won’t be any sense of empowerment. 

The only time I use the cruise control option in my car is when I’m driving long distance on the motorway. It is great and I can relax a little and I never get speeding fines and it is less stressful.

In my life, I allow cruise control to make my journey more enjoyable. However, I don’t let myself get so comfortable that I stop paying attention or taking appropriate action to get where I want to go. If I think that is what will happen, I turn it off…fast!

Make plans, set new goals and give yourself the chance to make your dreams come true and don’t be afraid to take control of the journey.

You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream

Thank you,

Neil

My Guide on How to Overcome Anything

As we are all very aware during this current pandemic situation, life can change very quickly and we can find our circumstances changing for the worst in the blink of an eye. So no matter what you’re going through personally in life, it’s important to always keep in the back of your mind that you will overcome whatever issue you are dealing with and good times will return. It’s important that you reassure yourself of that every day. To help I have pulled together my guide on how to overcome anything, I hope it helps…

Money Worries:

We often put too much stress on ourselves with regards to money, but if the worst comes to the worst and you do get into debt you’ve still got options. Can you ask your family for help? Or your friends? To those of you who say no, is it because of your pride? If it is then it’s time to think again. Asking for help is never something you should feel ashamed of. And if it’s not family or friends, then there’s government assistance, non-profit organisations, and many other options that exist to help us. Don’t be ashamed to ask!

Loss of a job:

Having a job isn’t just about money, it’s about purpose too. When you’re unemployed, you start to feel like you’re not good enough, but your worth isn’t determined by the job you do, it is only determined by you! If you do find yourself out of work use the time to invest in your passions. Look at unemployment as an opportunity to do what you really want with your life.

Breakdown of a relationship/marriage:

You can devote years to one person only for it to explode in your face but don’t let it break you. Let the end of a relationship be a benchmark of what you don’t want in a partner, and let it be a lesson in how YOU can be better in your next relationship.

Becoming ill:

Health problems slow you down and make life harder than it should be. Build your health up now, to cope with change as you good older and you could feel good for the rest of your life. If you want to feel good, you have to live healthily.

Loss of a Loved One:

This is probably the worst thing that could ever happen to you. We will all deal with this one day, but still, there is no one clear answer to handling the death of a loved one. So why not think of the one they this person always encouraged you to do? Now’s your time to do it, and you can make your loved ones you’ve lost proud.

Bad situations in life never have to break you. As long as you’re breathing and as long as you can still move, your bad situations in life can be temporary.
