Put Your Thoughts into Action

Thoughts only have impact when put into action

Thoughts only have impact when put into action

Your actions, not your thoughts, impact others. Good intentions mean nothing without action.

Especially in the social media realm, many people proclaim their opinions without needing to support what they say. We all have the power to say whatever we want with the tap of our thumbs, but the key to helping people and solving problems isn’t saying something that sounds good. Instead we should be intentional with personal relationships, listen and help when they’re ready for it.

Believe me, as a motivational speaker, listening and waiting is often really hard. Sometimes I’d love to change a person’s behavior if I could. But my job is to inspire change, not force it. I give others the tools to help themselves, and when I get to see the transformation, it’s incredibly encouraging.

The key to helping others is to be sincere and helpful. I really care about helping people becoming the best version of themselves. I’m by no means perfect, but I have a passion for coaching others that translates to action, and I believe in the words I say. I’ve seen people’s lives changed after they’ve applied my advice and it feels great to be a part of genuine change based on actions rather than just words.

Anyone can resolve to do something, but until they believe they can, set up goals to change their day and actually get started doing them, words mean nothing. Saying you’re going to quit smoking or exercise doesn’t make you change. Believing that you can change and planning how you will followed by taking the first step does.

The hardest part is getting started. The rest is just overcoming inertia.

Solving Problems with Alcohol the Right Way

Alcohol is not the answer.

Alcohol: Burden or Bonus?

Andy Core is an expert in Work-Life Balance, Wellbeing, and Peak Human Performance.

Like anything else, too much of something may be a bad thing. Drinking alcohol isn’t, in itself, bad, but if it becomes a priority rather than a bonus, you may have an issue.

My advice is to keep your drinking habit in check. Like everything else, this takes conscious reflection. If your drinking causes problems in your life or those around you, then you have a problem.

If you’re honest with your reflection and refuse to make excuses, then you should be able to decide your plan of action. When do you drink the most? Where are you when you make mistakes that are causing problems? If your answer is with a certain person, at a certain place or when you’re in a certain mindset, then the logical thing to do is figure out what other actions you can do to to offset this habit.

In other words if you drink when you’re depressed or insecure, decide to go exercise instead of having a beer. If you drink when you hang out with a certain person, then be intentional with other relationships. If you get into trouble when you go to a certain bar, avoid that bar.

Obviously, this is hard to do. You drink because it’s social, fun and relaxing. The problem is relying on drinking to be social, fun and relaxed. If you don’t have these qualities in life without alcohol, then something about your life needs to change. Focus on other ways to bring these factors, and bring alcohol into the bonus category rather than the focus.

Worrying is a Waste of Time, It Will Get You Nowhere

Sitting around worrying will get you nowhere.

get you nowhere.

Whatever is going to happen will happen whether you worry about it or not. Of course there are steps you can take to prepare and hopefully make your future brighter, but sitting around and worrying about what might go wrong without taking any action is a huge waste of time.

Worry takes a great toll on your mind and body, and in the end, you’re actually probably worse for it. Fear of the unknown can be difficult to overcome, but the future is coming no matter what, so you can dread it, or you can enjoy the present and just try and be ready for what’s next.

You can try and push worry aside by being as prepared as possible, and exercising to work off your nervous energy. It also helps to keep busy. Worry often strikes the hardest when you’re in bed and trying to sleep. Try reading before bed to relax, or talk about your concerns with someone you trust.

Anything that will help take your mind off of worry will help you to enjoy your life more. Worry is a wasted emotion, in that it doesn’t serve much purpose, other than to keep you up at night, and give you migraines. So don’t worry, be happy.
