How To Keep Yourself Motivated

I believe we can all relate to the feeling of getting excited about something and the, "I'm going to do this!" attitude, and then after some time it turns to, "Meh, I'm over it." How many projects have we started and then stopped mid-way? Are short-term goals better for you, while looking at the long-term goals is difficult? I fall into the category of liking short-term goals. I was never good at answering the question, "Where do you see yourself in five years?" A lot of things can happen in five years, and I'm just trying to figure out the next six months. Keeping ourselves motivated in all areas of life, takes time and attention. When we start something that is going to take some time to grow and nurture, it's easy to get sidetracked. The big picture of how it will feel when that goal is accomplished can get lost over time. Here are some ideas for staying motivated when you want to throw in the towel. What is your "Why?" It's important to be clear why you wanted to do this in the ...

Teach People How to Treat You

In the past month, I’ve had to examine the topic of, “Teaching people how to treat you.” I’ve had to look at what I’m letting into my life, and how I’m allowing myself to be treated. How we are being treated applies to our personal relationships with those closest to us, our co-workers, and even the stranger on the street. We need to look at how we carry ourselves in our day-to-day lives, and what kind of energy we project to others. If we present ourselves with confidence, we will be treated with respect in return. If we project shyness or victimization, the energy we receive in from others will most likely not be that of respect and courtesy. What we put out there into the world is what we get in return. The value we place on ourselves will determine the value in which others see in us, and we cannot expect to be held in high regard if we do not see ourselves as worthy. If you feel you are being treated badly, or are often disrespected by others, maybe it’s time to bring aw...

Free Yourself From Negativity

Negativity is not only a sneaky habit that can slowly penetrate our lives and wreak havoc on our happiness, but we tend to let it stay a little longer than it should. I know I've had times in my life when I was negative about the people I worked with, and the people I had to interact with every day. Negativity had taken a hold of me, and it took a long time for me to realize it. In order to notice what we are feeling and how it affects our daily lives, we have to be aware of what we are doing and saying during every interaction and every encounter. Many of us are sleepwalking through our lives, and are unaware as to how we interact with ourselves and those around us. It’s easy to get complacent in our routine of work, taking care of the family, and the same old conversation we have day in and day out. But if we bring more awareness into how we interact with ourselves and those around us, we might notice some negative traits that we have unintentionally embraced. Oftentimes, this ne...

Why We Need a Little More Patience

Driving in Northern California has tested my patience more than a few times. Going the short distance to Costco in the middle of the day on a Tuesday shouldn't be an hour commute, but due to traffic and other hold-ups, sometimes it is. The other day I caught myself waving my hands and getting upset when a large truck cut in front of me. I took a deep breath and thought, "We're all doing the best we can, and I will get there when I get there." There are things in life that are out of our control, and I see people lose their s*** while driving, waiting for a table at a restaurant, or trying to get to Costco on a Tuesday. I laughed at myself and thought of the phrase, "Patience is a virtue." There was nothing virtuous about my reaction that day, but it made me think about how we can bring a little more patience into our lives, and the benefits of keeping our composure in situations we find ourselves in on a daily basis. Here are some tips and benefits of finding a little more patience....

It's Okay To Not Be Okay

Have you ever been in a bad mood and someone cheery and smiley tells you "everything will be okay"? Am I the only one that sometimes wants to scream at this person? I am usually a happy, even-keel person. That wasn't always the case, but I've learned how to be more like my father and let things go. My whole platform for my blog and podcast is to bring a little more happiness to your life. I've found that there are times in our lives-and hopefully it's only for short periods of time-that we are simply not doing okay. We are not ready for someone to tell us that everything will work out, because we don't believe it in that moment. Most of us have experienced some difficulties in our lives, and it's never a good idea to compare your pain to others’. Whether you are experiencing pain now, or are reflecting on challenges in the past, it’s okay to not be okay. Here are some tips to be okay with not being okay, and how you can help someone who is currently struggling. You need to complet...
