Recently I have been trying to dig deeper into my own vision. One thing that has been helping me is using quotes or positive words of affirmation ( Thanks MOM for the daily texts) that guide my purpose. It's important to understand that your energy needs to be created. If you stress, stress will grow. If you are happy, excited and willing to be open minded, opportunities happen.
Here are a few of my favorite quotes:
Your best weight is whatever weight you reach when you’re living the healthiest life you actually enjoy.
- This one is the first one that I have been working on diligently. Yes, this is also hard for me to put into practice because in our society we are so focused on impressing others. Being healthy is about FEELING good, not what the scale says or what you "think" you should look like! Our bodies are all different, and there is beauty in these differences! Don’t focus on what the scale says. Focus on feeling your absolute best. Move because you love it. Eat food to nourish your body not feed the palate.
Motivation is what gets you started, habit is what keeps you going.
-Motivation is great to get you started, at some point, it can fade. Building healthy habits means you have something to fall back on when your motivation disappears after a tough day. You put on your workout clothes and train because it’s habit! Create a daily schedule for yourself and make it part of your normal routine. You don't need a 2 hour workout every day to be successful. You just need to get in there daily and do something that puts habit into practice.
The only person you should try to be better than is the person you were yesterday.
-You should constantly be trying to get better daily for yourself. You do not need to impress anyone else, nor do you need to try to be "something" to fit in. Believe me when I say I did this and it was not a good plan. Find the passion within yourself to work hard at things you love for you. As long as you know you are giving your best effort that is what truly matters the most.
If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.
-BUILD YOUR TRIBE. I can't say this enough. You need to build a group of people around you that support what you are doing. It's so important to surround yourself with those that build you up and do not drag you down. You should find people who know MORE than you and learn from them. We all have amazing things to offer in this world. Find those that mesh with your values and build something great together.
