Motivation Monday – Look Ahead
Hey everyone! So, I hope you’re all well and feeling fresh after the weekend – with bonfire night and the weather getting chilly, it’s official – Winter & Christmas are on the way!
Here is your Monday Morning Boost and something which I’d like to think that a lot of you can reflect with.
This time of year, as happy and as cheerful as it can be could lead to people feeling – down, shall we say.
There’s so much stress and pressure that people put themselves under especially when it comes to buying gifts and impressing people – more often than not, we forget to look ahead and appreciate the little things in the life, the things that matter!
Motivation Monday – Look Ahead & Don’t Stress
Easier said than done – yep!
Stress is one of the worst things that we put our bodies through yet – it’s completely out of your control!
Over the years, I’ve learned a few ways of handling and dealing with stress and honestly, the best way? To not care.
That’s right – I don’t care what people think and I wish that I’d done this sooner! My sister always used to tell me to live my life and not care what people think – I love my life the way it is and I surround myself with people who are positive and appreciate the little things.
One thing which I see often this time of year is people stressing over what to buy their friends and loved ones – topping up credit cards to make sure what is ‘needed‘ is bought BUT just take a little step back.
Are those things you’re spending a whole load of money on needed or simply wanted because it’s Christmas? We have to look ahead and see what people will use and appreciate the most.
One meaningful & thoughtful gift is better than 30 unmeaningful gifts….
So, instead of spending all your money and worrying about what people will think about your gift choice, look ahead and see what people will appreciate the most.
Life is far too short to stress, so take a step back and look around at all everything you have, be grateful and appreciate everything.
Motivation Monday – Look Ahead & Focus
This is important and I’m writing this for myself too! Over the past few weeks, too many things were happening – I had too many emails to go through, too many events to attend and it all got a little bit too much.
Now, after taking some time away I’ve managed to focus on the important things and I’m feeling a lot happier in myself for getting things done, keeping up to date and generally keeping up to date with things again.
It’s important to always focus on a goal or on a dream – without that, you’re simply living a boring life…. You need to have something to focus on and always try to become a better person.
Everyday we learn and we grow and by having something to focus on allows you to open your mind to a world of possibilities and opportunities – life is what you make it so always have a goal, a dream or an ambition in your life to focus on as this will allow you to look ahead and do what you love.
Motivation Monday – Look Ahead & Work
People can say what they like about too much work but I believe the harder you work, the better the results in the long-run!
I’ve said it time and time again, I love what I do and I wouldn’t change it – I love the freedom I have and I love the ability of being able to work with a variety of brands and meeting so many great people through what I do.
The freedom is by far the most important part as I get to spend the time I want with my family and loved ones.
I look ahead and I know that in 10 years from now, I won’t look back and regret not spending enough time with the people that matter the most.
I’m a girl with values and no matter what life throws at me – I can count on my family, they matter the most to me and having the freedom to see people I love daily, without having to compromise on my work makes everything worthwhile.
Motivation Monday – Look Ahead
In the end, we all need to look ahead.
Life is beautiful and even though we go through up’s and down’s – it’s all for a reason. We might not see it in that moment but without up’s and down’s life would be boring!
We are always tested and pushed to our limits – this is to make us become stronger people. The harder our life is, the stronger (and better) people we become!
Learn to spread the happiness and positivity with one another – don’t wish bad or hate amongst others.
We are all the same, doing what we can to make our lives the best they can be.
Look Ahead and make the most of everything in your life, be grateful – we have health, happiness and our loved ones.
One day, you won’t have a chance to look ahead much longer so make the most of every moment!
