How often do you find yourself doing things without putting your best effort into it? You’re tired, you’re busy, you and or someone you are close to may have health issues, you’re disinterested, you’ve got fear of failure, fear of success or you may even need to learn something new! Obstacles in life, no real shortage of them it seems…
It’s only once we begin to understand why we’re feeling a certain way that we can actually deal with it. Clearly, some things are within our span of control and some are not. Feeling tired all the time? What might you do to drive your energy levels up? Got too much on your plate? How much of it, if any, is self-inflicted? Health related issues? Although not always enough, are you getting proper medical attention? If someone you are close to has health issues, what do you need to do to ensure that you are in good health in order to support them in the best possible way? Bored or disengaged? What might you do to spice things up a little? Got the failure or success jitters? What new skills might you learn that will help to alleviate some of those nasty gremlins?
You’re not alone! At one time or another, it’s likely that we have all experienced variations of these and other obstacles. It’s what you do about it that matters. If you want to enjoy what you do and how you live your life, take a look at the things that prevent you from moving forward. If they are within your control, start with small steps, but do start. Create some goals for yourself. Enlist the support of those close to you or perhaps even a Coach. You can’t put your best foot forward if you’re not even sure which one that is. Remember, you can’t control how others react or behave but you are in full control of both your attitude and yours actions. According to Google, a wise but unknown soul coined the phrase “If you believe it, you will achieve it!”
The best thing is that energy and positive emotions are contagious. Not only will your move forward inspire you to go further but you may just inspire others along the way!
Which one will it be? Right foot or left?
