You Can Overcome Any Obstacle

the one you feedI motivate businesses and individuals for a living, and like everyone else, I too can grow weary from the demands of life.

Everyday you face difficulties that will discourage you. From normal stress to actual tragedies, life can be hard to handle. The secret to overcoming these obstacles is based on perspective. If you focus on what’s wrong rather than what is good in your life, you’ll fail to overcome your challenges.

Sometimes you must simply take a break and put things into perspective. Right now, some of you may feel ready to give up, but if you can change your attitude, you will see that things aren’t as hopeless as they seem.No matter how bad things might seem, if you persevere with a positive perspective you will find that things eventually change and you develop a happier lifestyle.

As a motivational speaker, my advice is to live a life of gratitude. This means consciously being thankful everyday. I’m not being trite- research actually shows that verbalizing what you’re thankful for, making a list, or even capturing the moment through photography, will help to transform your long term perspective .

I once was challenged to say something I was grateful for every time I turned on the faucet. When I started this, it felt almost comical, but as I continued with the challenge, it started to become habit and my life, by default, improved.

When you start this activity, you may not feel the immediate change, but just like dieting, if you continue to be thankful on a daily, or even hourly basis, you’ll start to feel better. You’re literally putting your perspective through a workout.

There are going to be harsh times as you progress through life, but also know that they won’t last. When you make it through and obstacle that is difficult, you will appreciate the good times and the achievements you worked hard for so much more.

What activities can you do that bring you joy? Dancing in the mirror, playing with your pet, singing out loud to a fun song? All of these are way to build up your positive perspective. Your attitude needs to be fed just like your body. Make sure what you’re putting into it is healthy and helpful.

When You’re Stressed. Learn.

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

learningEverybody needs help occasionally. At some point, we all get stressed out at work and feel like we can’t get everything done that we have to do.

But rather than venting about your situation or trying to trudge through the period of challenge on your own, it’s better to take on a learner’s perspective. Ask question’s and expand your perspective in order to get past your motivational block and gain more information to help you succeed.

Helping other’s is also a good method to become more motivated and get out of your head. Like breaking up soil after a cold winter, sometimes your mindset needs to be cultivated in order to grow.

The best way to do this is to help others and ask questions. Learning motivates you and makes you better as you help others. Remember this the next time you’re feeling overwhelmed.

How to Succeed No Matter What

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

We’ve all had points in our day or in our life that overwhelm and overburden us. These days especially, believing that we can be successful is hard, but if you find a way to believe you can achieve your goals, then you can do it. It just requires determination and belief that you can achieve your goals.

How to find this determination and belief?

Smile even when you’re ticked off. 

Being positive, even when things are looking grim, is the only way you will be able to climb out of the hole you’re in. If you don’t give up on yourself, and you put in the hard work and perseverance necessary, you’ll be able to pass whatever tests life has thrown at you.

There is a celebratory feeling when you succeed, and moreover, after you remember the challenges you witnessed to get that success, you get the full satisfaction. Therefore you should never give up in life.

Make the choice to keep going

When you try something and don’t get the results you expected, you should try again and again until you get what you want. When you put your mind to something and have the determination to achieve it, success will come knocking at your door. Take the examples of all professionals like that of a business keynote speaker and put your mind to it.

Realize that you’re human and give yourself a break

No one should be expected to do it all. You can only do as much as you can do, and when you’ve reached your limit, STOP. Enjoy life in whatever way that works for you and stop spending your energy thinking about what’s draining your energy. If you don’t recover on a daily basis, you won’t be able to keep up your stamina.

Want Motivation? Do this.

Someone busier than you is exercising right now.

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

Motivation, work-life balance, productivity and stress management all have a common denominator. Exercise.

Researchers at Harvard Business Review found that integrating your work and your life will be easier if exercise is a consistent factor in your life. The better you feel about your work-life balance, the more motivated and productive you will be, which will therefore decrease your stress levels.

It’s a simple answer to your complicated life. Prioritize exercise on a regular basis. Don’t schlef it off and avoid it because you feel overwhelmed or lazy, do it because you feel that way. This one daily habit will change your entire life for the better.

And I’m not asking you to do Crossfit everyday or train for a marathon. Simply choose an exercise you enjoy like yoga or walking, join an intramural team or find a podcast to lead you. The solution is simple. The change is up to you.
