Challenge Yourself Daily
When you want to create the life you want, you gotta do the work. Challenge yourself daily. Every morning take a few minutes and first just be quiet, set your alarm for 5 minutes, practice shutting off your mind. Next take a few minutes and day dream about your perfect life, totally let go! Dream big and don’t let fear or doubt get in your way, imagine anything is possible. Lastly take a few minutes and go down the checklist of awesome already in your world, be thankful for what you do have.
Now it’s time to challenge yourself and take some serious daily action, for yourself personally, and professionally. What are some major goals in your life you think about all the time but you might be, let’s say, stuck in a state of ‘safe’. Maybe you’ve always wanted to surf- but think that’s crazy. Have you been dreaming about $10,000 so you can take your web design to the next level- but think that kind of money is way out of reach. Maybe it’s as simple as going on walks- but might have been a little lazy lately. Maybe you would love to hire someone to take some of the smaller things off your already crazy plate- but how can you afford that?!
Hey listen, it’s time to go big! Nothing is unattainable and if you want something, it’s up to you to get it. Whatever it be, think about your work goal and your personal goal and everyday this week CHALLENGE YOURSELF DAILY to do something that pushes you towards them. Once a day start watching a how to surf video. Start networking and making those terrifying phone calls for your business. Find a mentor this week and ask how they took the leap and hired their first employee. Go for a walk everyday at sunset, no matter what!
Final note: If you take a moment once a day and push yourself towards your perfect work/life balance, things WILL start to happen. Stick with it and watch it unfold. It’s a great feeling creating your world. Remember, YOU’RE DOING IT, and that’s a beautiful/empowering thing, I promise.
