Life can be crazy at times! The entrepreneurship journey can be hard at time! Do not let the journey claim your life. This past weekend, I took a trip to Detroit for a book signing. It was a weekend trip. During the trip, I did a little self-reflecting. If you are to reclaim your life, you need to take the time to ask yourself a few questions. Are you living your life the way you want to live it? Do you think you’re going through your day as your true self? Are you speaking with your authentic voice, or are you holding back out of fear of not being accepted? Stop holding back so you can reclaim your life.
1. Don’t Hold Back!
Many of us struggle with the split between who we are and who we present to the world. We do this in order to fit in. We fear that our loved ones or peers will judge us for the things that we do or the ways that we want to be. So instead of being ourselves, we spend so much energy trying to fit into this mold of what everyone else expects of us. In this article, I will list four ways to reclaim your life. This will help you to approach everyday with the authenticity that you were born with. Do not let Fear win! Trust God through the process!
2. BE PRESENT AND THINK TO THE FUTURE
When you think about the past and the type of person that you used to be, your motivation will instantly disappear. Instead, focus on where you are in your life right now and where you’ll be going next.
Don’t be scared of this thought. Change allows for growth. Accept what once was and move on. You can’t change the past, but you are in control of where you are right now. You’re evolving as a person every single day without realizing it. Think of everything you’ve got to look forward to.
3. INSTEAD OF FOCUSING ON THE GOAL, CONCENTRATE ON HOW YOU'RE GOING TO GET THERE
Too often, we can lose our motivation because we think we’re never going to reach a goal. The truth is, we’re so focused on reaching it that we don’t think about what it’s going to take to get there. A key way to reclaim your life is to focus on the steps you’re going to take to reach your goal. Focusing on how you’re actually going to make that improvement in your life will leave you much more motivated. Each step forward you take, you’ll see that you’re getting ever close towards your end goal.
4. DON'T BE HARD ON YOURSELF
Take your time. Be kind to yourself. Think about what you’re coming home to at the end of your work day. Even if you’re having a really bad time, there’s always something to be grateful for.
Follow @tjinspires Give yourself permission to try and try again. Always believe in yourself. Learning how to believe in yourself will open up endless possibilities in your life. I find living to be a fascinating experience. How we’re all on earth with millions of species, 30,000 different life forms, and over 7 billion people, and everyone is thriving in their own way, existing, co-existing, and co-creating. There’s so much we don’t know out there and so much to be experienced that it’s just wonderful. As you live on earth, remember to love life. It’s the only way we have to live.
For the month of AUGUST we focus on the topic RECLAIM Your Best Life, we will focus on living your best life! Why, because your time here on earth is limited! So enjoy life and live to the fullest! Now, go on out there and LIVE YOUR BEST LIFE.
Love you to the moon + back,
