Keep your eye on the prize.
Head above the water.
And a mind cleared from distractions.
It's so easy to lose sight of your goals and your track of determination. It's so easy to lose your motivation especially during moments of doubts or discouragement. And it's just so easy to get your head lost in moments of never ending what ifs.
We encounter the daily battlefield of our minds by certain things like work, our dreams, our passion, the process to reach our goal, current happenings, things we want to do, things we need to do, priorities, etc. It's a battlefield where certain things from your past still traumatize you or affect your daily living/opportunities. It's the battlefield of our mind attacking itself by these thoughts we allow to overtake our thinking. It's a battlefield of remembering the strength and courage it took you to be where you are today. Those questions of what ifs...
What if I'm doing this wrong? What if this isn't right? What am I doing? Where am I going?
that take place in our thinking and where anxiety slowly tries to creep its way in, is when you have to remind yourself that you are strong. You are courageous. You are a survivor. You are a fighter.
You never know if something wasn't meant to be if you didn't try. You never know the outcome of the opportunity if you don't give it a chance. You just never know until you try. Worry less, smile more, stay focused and fight to make your dreams reality.
Your mind is a powerful force. Exercise your mind in thinking positive and believing you can overcome anything life can ever throw at you. Here are 5 tips that helped me become more of a positive thinker:
1. Surround yourself with positive people who carry positive energy.
2. Take a moment to be still, meditate, and listen. A moment to just be by yourself. A moment away from the chaos and busyness of life.
3. Read uplifting articles, stories, or passages.
4. Remind yourself not to compare your success to the success of others. Trust the timing of your life. We were all made differently with a different purpose, a different plan. We were all made to be unique.
5. Most importantly, remind yourself that you are worthy.
