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.

Not everyone among us find it easy to work out regularly and consistently. Even professional athletes have days where they don’t feel like getting out of bed.  Listed below are a few suggestions on how to overcome these obstacles and adhere to a weekly routine.

If you are ill or have suffered an injury: Rest if you are feeling a bit down but if you can, opt for an exercise of low intensity and you’ll be surprised how much better it might make you feel. Though if you are feeling a bit under the weather, do attain permission from your practitioner before engaging in any form of physical activity.

If you are on a holiday – When on a holiday avail the available facilities such as local gyms and clubs in order to keep yourself healthy. Perhaps you could simply go swimming or stroll down the beach-side if you please. You can always find ways to incorporate some sort of activity no matter where you might be vacationing.

If you are constantly working– You could always work within your office space or at your desk. For example, you could do some crunches, stretches or simply walk up and down the stairs every now and then.

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

Sitting around worrying will 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.
