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,
If we’re being honest, the theme for this post is inspired by the current season of Survivor that premiered this evening, but this is an interesting concept none the less. Who has the advantage the David type or the Goliath type? Is other words, is it the hustler who has battled adversity their whole life, or the naturally gifted who had natural advantages in everything.
Both sides definitely have attributes that would allow them to win, but who really has the best shot? The person who will battle until the final whistle blows? Or the person who has natural abilities and a head start? I personally believe that it depends on the situation. Sure, a Goliath or somebody naturally gifted with a head start definitely has a better education, more money, and a substantial advantage, however you can never count out the underdog. The David or hustler will fight until the game is over and is used to battling adversity. This tendency to battle adversity I believe is the real advantage. Being able to push through and knowing that you have worked as hard as possible in the past, gives you a better grit and determination when things get hard. The Goliath has a great outlook as someone who is used to winning, but the David knows that things get hard, and they can push through.
Who do you think has the advantage?
