Happy Monday Everybody!
I know that a lot of you out there don’t share my feelings about Monday’s, but luckily that isn’t what I’m going to talk about today.
Today we’re going to talk about the power of having a routine. I know that it’s often said that doing the same old thing over and over again won’t help you get ahead, and yeah this is true, but we aren’t talking about doing the same old thing over and over. We’re simply talking about routine.
The kind of routines you want to have are very simple. Brush your teeth and shower every morning when you wake up, and you also make your bed, and eat breakfast before you head out the door. These simple tasks you complete all the time are more important than you might think. Do you remember that one time you overslept and had to have a quick shower, but you didn’t have time to eat breakfast or make your bed, and you didn’t even realize you forgot to brush your teeth that morning? You probably got to work and had a pretty rough day all in all.
Why did you have a rough day? And how did I know that? When you complete those few small tasks every morning, you may not realize it, but you’ve accomplished something. When you missed those tasks, you feel like you’ve already failed the day, so you felt that way the rest of the day. Feeling down all day caused you to not work as hard, or focus as well as usual.
Find out what your routine in the morning is, and make sure you feel accomplished when you complete those tasks every morning. If you want to change up your routine, write it down, stick the new routine on your bedroom mirror, and accomplish the new tasks too.
If you do this, everyday you can walk into work feeling good about yourself, and confident about the day.
Until next time,
Be The Hero of Your Own Movie
This Joe Rogan video is one of my all time favorite motivational clips and one of the few I watch multiple times a week.
The basis of everything he says stands true in the lives of almost all of us. Imagine what the hero of your own movie would do. If your life was a movie what would you do to be the hero, or in other words your best self. Whatever the hero of your own movie would do, is what you should be doing. Once you’ve determined how to be your own hero, you can set goals to get there.
The first thing is to not worry about the past. Anybody who has never failed, has never truly learned. Failure teaches us valuable lessons in life, and each time something goes wrong we learn how to avoid that same instance next time. The key is to look at your failures whether in career, finance, or relationship as a learning experience and grow from it. You then move forward and use these lessons you’ve learned to be a better person in the future.
So do you want to be the hero of your own movie? Or would you rather play a supporting role in your own life?
Until Next Time,
All good things come to an end right. After spending a week in what is basically a paradise it’s now time to return home to the hustle and bustle of daily life.
As much as a vacation is an amazing feeling, and you can really distance yourself mentally and get into a true state of relaxation, it’s nice to come home. By the end of every vacation, I always feel ready to come home. As strange as it is I end up missing work. I don’t feel like I’m getting bogged down, or worried about the amount of work piling up, I just eventually start to miss the day to day hustle and bustle I’m used to once I’ve spent a couple days relaxing.
If you truly love what you do like I do, I’d think that you too may end up missing the satisfaction you get from a job well done after a solid week of leaving your mind completely at ease. This week of not a worry on my mind, and never without a cold drink in my hand has left me fully relaxed, fully recharged, and ready to come back at full strength and not risk burning out anytime soon.
If you can’t step back and relax and enjoy some time to yourself, then you should. It’ll inevitably help you along your own Climb to Success.
Until next time,
