This week I was going to write about calcium and how it works for sports nutrition and overall health, but it just didn’t feel right. A friend of mine posted a blog last night and I knew instantly that it was something I wanted to write about. It was all about the mindset.
What type of mindset are you holding on to today? To tell you the truth, for me personally over the last week, has been quite a negative one. Work has been slower than usual, which I expected during winter, but I felt as though I have been failing. Failing at my job and that I am not doing a good enough job for my current clients to refer on. Results in weight loss and sports nutrition do take time, and there is not much I can do about that. Most only need 2-3 consults and they are well on their way to reaching their goals. So even though they may be happy, I still felt as though I was/am not doing a good enough job.
To make things worse, last week I was driving home and one of the ads on the radio say 1 in 3 small businesses fail within the first 3 years. Oh wow, it hit me at that point that I could be one of those businesses. All the hard work I had driven into my business would be gone and I would not be able to do the one thing that I truly love. I don’t want to fail, and I know I have mentioned before that failing is truly one of my biggest fears. These thoughts began to overwhelm me, what if I have to find other work, will I be able to pay for the bills coming through over the next couple of months. I let fear overtake me and my mindset. Each day got worse and worse. Even when work started to pick up and bustle over the last few days, my mindset still was not right. I was thinking it will just slow down again and you won’t have anything for a while.
However after reading this blog yesterday, I decided I need to have faith and believe that I have the power and opportunity to continue to make a difference in people’s lives. I know once I have that belief, and change my mindset from being afraid to fail, I will be successful.
Today is the day I decide I need to be courageous, and even though I am afraid I know I am taking a step forward in the right direction. Procrastination may creep in at times, and I may lose focus, but for how long I let that stay for is up to me. I need to be active in my business goals and work hard for what I want. Only I can make and see change. I am my own facilitator of change.
So what am I trying to say? What type of mindset do you have today? Is it one of defeat, or that you are not good enough to reach your goals? That what happens will happen. Are you afraid of not seeing change. Or it not being fast enough for your liking.
Every kind of success has some kind of struggle. If you truly want to change your life, change the way you feel about yourself, CHANGE YOUR LIFE. You are the only one who can make the decision to change the way you look at life, no one else will do it for you. Yes it will be slow and hard at times, but that’s life. Don’t look at someone else’s journey and say that they get it easier than you. You do not know that, they may have their own struggles that you may not see. Some can mask their frustration or fears well. They have their own journey and you have yours. The longer you focus on what they have, the less you focus on yours. Do what only you need to do to be successful.
If you want weight loss, or to be successful in your sport, only you can do that. Yes people will help you along the way and give you the right tools to reach that goal through meal plans, training programs, and life coaching, but ultimately, you decide how much you want to change.
You are in control of your own destiny. Build the right mindset today, and see a new person arise.
