Purpose

When you wake up every morning, what drives you? What is your purpose?

If you want to live a life enriched with love and happiness it begins with you, so  find your purpose and find your WHY.

It’s important to take steps daily to move forward, it’s not always going to be an easy road but if you know your purpose, And what drives and inspires you then you WILL improve your life.

Your why will pull you up when you’ve been knocked down and it will keep you fighting when you’re tired. I heard something this morning from one of my favourite speakers saying “don’t look back you’re not going that way, and when you get knocked down.. get back up”

If we know our purpose it will be the reason you keep on fighting for your dreams.. when it hurts, keep going.. for if we push through those tough times they will only make us STRONGER. Stay focused and do NOT loose sight of that.

Be the very best. Sacrifice, get up early & fight back.. you are FAR from ordinary.

Hard Work Pays Off

I Had a conversation with someone today in which we spoke about our goals and how to be successful..this person was adamant that hard work doesn’t ALWAYS  pay off in the end. They told me that some people work themselves to the bone for years and it just never seems to pay off..

Its simple you guys, I responded by telling them that the reason it didn’t pay off was because they had no purpose, they continued to do the same thing over and over again expecting different results & they never saw success because they were comfortable consistently being average.

There are people in this world that work for years within a company but they never progress and they stay at the same level.. I genuinely cannot comprehend why anyone would want to settle and accept average. It’s so important to continue to grow in whatever field that you’re in and be the best at what you do! I understand not everyone has the same mentality as I do but why go through the motions and be like everyone else in this world?

Know WHY you do what you do & exactly what you want to achieve.. Don’t get stuck in the same routine leading to no where.

Consistency Is Key.

Whether it is achieving your fitness goals, hitting your targets in work or being successful (whatever successful means to you) you need to be CONSISTENT.

Today was spent with my Uncle.. I admire and respect him more than he’ll ever know & I look up to him for the strength he has and for the incredible conversations we always share. Today we talked about goals, and achieving the things that we want in life and it really made me think about what’s important and what it really takes to be my best self.

Throughout my years of training & preparing for my first World Championship Gold Medal with Team Canada, the one thing I took away from that was consistency. I wanted to be my best self so I trained like it, everyday, rain or shine. Deep down in my mind I knew that if I took one day off, that one day could set me back a week, a month.. who knows maybe even an entire year and I was not willing to take that risk.

I have this same mentality today but now stronger than ever before. I know what I want to achieve in life and I will stop at nothing to make my vision and my goals a reality. I think its imperative to maintain a consistent growth mindset.. by always questioning what it is that I can do better?  What choices can I make that will get me closer to the end result? What can I read to increase my knowledge? What speaker can I listen to that will motivate me?  Where can I go to find inspiration to keep my creativity flowing?

At the end of the day I know that my vision & my purpose is what drives me and Its important to keep my head in the game.. I deeply believe that having the right MINDSET will take you wherever you want to go in life.  Yes, we’re human, we get tired, we lose focus sometimes but its important to RECOGNIZE that and do what we need to do to get back on track.

Believe in yourself & Be consistent.. Consistent with your mindset, with learning with your training.. Work hard NOW, don’t waste another minute.. one day it will all be worth it.

 

Strength on dark days

Some days will be easier than others, some days thoughts of our past arise & we need to accept, acknowledge and realise that it’s ok.

I think it’s important to let yourself feel  not only the good emotions but the bad in order for us that heal, also.. Instead of pushing away the pain of the past or hiding away from the struggle let yourself be upset, let yourself cry and get angry if you must HOWEVER do NOT unpack and live there.

If we are in a constant state of feeling sorry for ourselves all we are doing is distracting from our progress of our future goals & aspirations.

My final thought is this, it is imperative to acknowledge our emotions however make sure to control them. Keep your head held high my friend and remember how far you’ve come and have to go! You are a warrior and nothing can break you.

Accept what is, let go of what was & have faith in what will be.
