Do you have goals and dreams that you want to turn into reality, but you feel stuck, or that something is holding you back? Here’s a little secret for you…. You can achieve it; you have the capability, you just didn’t know it yet.
So start today with these helpful hacks to releasing your full potential.
Believing Is Achieving
Self-belief is paramount for success in all aspects of our lives. Once we can visualize the possibility of reaching that particular goal, we are one step closer to it. Start your day right, by creating a morning mantra that you can repeat to yourself while brushing your teeth, on the way to work or running on the treadmill. For example ‘I am capable’ or ‘ I am strong.’ Whatever it is, make sure you can connect to this sentence and honestly believe it. Whenever you doubt yourself, say it over and over again.
Trust your gut
Don’t wait for the approval of others, or for someone to give you permission to go after what you want. Remember, YOU create your reality. Your instinct is your guide, if something doesn’t feel good to you, then it probably isn’t. If your gut is telling you that a particular opportunity feels right, go with it, take a chance.
Self-Care Is The Secret To Success
In our daily lives, we feel immense pressure to go -go- go, and neglect putting our needs first. Taking care of yourself is as important if not more, than meeting your deadlines. If you are not functioning to your full potential, then neither will your work, relationships, or other priorities. Finding balance in all areas of your life creates room for creativity and success. Take time to do things you enjoy outside of the work place.
So how can we practice self -care?
- Create boundaries– After work, make space for ‘you time’ and enjoy it thoroughly without worrying about tomorrow’s emails or tasks. Take a bubble bath, listen to your favorite tunes, or start reading that book that you haven’t had time to.
- Make a delicious meal– Cook with fresh ingredients and experiment creating new dishes. Sit down to eat and enjoy without any technology to distract you. Be in the moment and revel in nourishing yourself.
- Take up a new hobby– Find something that makes you feel good and inspires you. This positive energy will radiate throughout other areas of your life.
Toast Your Triumphs
Often we get stuck focusing on what we haven’t done well enough, or goals that we set for ourselves but didn’t fulfill. However, it is important to acknowledge your accomplishments. It is vital to embrace the challenges that lie ahead and enjoy the journey. Your smallest successes can often be the biggest triumphs, and your mistakes are where you learn the most. Don’t be hard on yourself, embrace your humanness.
Seek Out Support
Find a strong support network, if ever you are feeling stressed or need to talk things through. When we voice our issues, they don’t seem as impossible.
Love Your Lists
Making lists of things you need to do or ticking off jobs that you have done is an essential part of staying on top of the game and on track. It can also be a way of reviewing your success, by referring to what you have done and how much you have already achieved.
It’s time to unleash that wellness warrior, believe in yourself and take the first step. You got this!
