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.
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.
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.
“Courage, strength, leadership, bravery. Sheep follow the leader they follow the heard, they don’t know where they are going.. many times they are lead to the slaughterhouse but they keep FOLLOWING, they don’t use their mind. A LION LEADS.”
This is what I heard this morning while thinking about my attitude. We need to have the lion attitude that says I CAN to take charge of our own destiny.
Real lions are hungry, they are not followers they lead. Lions demonstrate who they are, they do not seek respect they demand it because they know they should be respected. This life is about having the strength and courage to take a stand for your goals.. so with that, what attitude will you have today? What choices are you going to make? GO ALL OUT.
Have the lion attitude, stay hungry.
The question remains, Is that all you’ve got?
When I woke up this morning this is what came to mind.. Don’t loose heart, remember this is the battle between you and your mind so you need to drown out the voice of uncertainty with the sound of your own heart beat & you must burn away your self doubt with the fire inside of you.
Believe the voice inside of you that says you can run a little faster, you can grind a little harder. There is nothing as powerful as a changed mind..You can change your hair, you can change your clothing & your address, but if you don’t change your MIND the same experience will perpetuate again and again.. we need to change INWARDLY and focus on our mindset to achieve what we want in life. Don’t be like most people, focus on what you what it is that you want so bad and STEP UP. Discover what you’re capable of my friend, who says you can’t? I believe that the only one who is standing in your way is the person you see reflecting in the mirror. I think something happens when you step into your fears..you make a decision, you make a choice. A choice that is to develop the courage to chase the things that you want in life as your life has value and your dreams have PURPOSE. With that said, What are you going to do with the 24 hours that lay before you? What are you going to do with this new day, this new chapter? Ask yourself.. am I going to STEP UP and chase my goals like a lion chasing a gazelle or am I going to go back to bed. GET UP & GET BUSY, Time waits for no man.
