Happy Monday Lovelies!
Life has been pretty full over here lately. There’s been a lot of “go gettin'”, which has inspired this blog on getting what you want in life.
I’ve never been one to take no for an answer. Some may call that being stubborn, for the sake of my ego we’re going to call that determination. I’ve grown up being told that you can have anything you want in life. I guess I must’ve just forgotten as on a recent trip to the Oregon Coast I was standing in a Nike store oogling at a store model’s body saying “those legs are the dream.” And my friend Ryan said, “You can have anything you want. You just have to work hard enough.” Duh. It’s so simple, how could I have possibly forgotten that? Somewhere along the way I got lost in comparison and self doubt as so many of us do. I was so busy looking at everyone else’s vision for their life that I forgot my own.
I was stuck in hopes without action and dreams without drive. Well let me tell you… that’s the end of that! I’m excited to be back to “go gettin'” and making things happen. Here’s my tricks to getting what you want in life:
No more excuses:
Getting what you want leaves no room for excuses. And a lot of the time that means hearing the things you don’t want to. You’re not failing because “people are too cheap for your services” or because “your body just doesn’t lose weight”, it’s you. You’re missing something along the way. No one is doing everything right and is failing. That’s not even logical. No more excuses… do the work to figure out the problem. You can and you will do it.
Believe in yourself:
You’ve got to own your goals. You need to believe in yourself before anyone else does. When you’re setting your goals don’t hope that you can achieve them, know that you will. That confidence exudes in everything you do. Others will start believing in you and conspire to help you succeed.
Nice guys finish last? I don’t think so. My day is a thousand times better when I’m working with genuinely kind people all day. Be one of those people. People want to support those that are genuine and deserving of success. And even better than that, when you put out good vibes, that’s what you get right back. All of a sudden you’ll be surrounded by all these amazing people that you didn’t even realize you were attracting with that wonderful new attitude.
Write it down:
I’ve been told to write my goals down on paper. I circulate them in my head a thousand times a day though I’m sure it would be much more effective to have them written down. All short term goals are written in my day planner weekly and I have plans to put my long term goals in a frame above my desk mixed in with my photo collage. Might as well make them pretty, right??
Last but not least, don’t stop pushing. Life happens and sometimes that means putting goals on the back burner, having a cheat day, not living up to your standards, or anything else that feels discouraging. And that’s okay. Don’t get down on yourself just get back at it. No excuses right?
Okay lovelies– go get it!
