👉🏾It is human to have down times, where we feel discouraged, depressed and listless. The difference lies in how quickly we choose to get over those things that are holding us back, or making us feel less than our personal best. And that, I believe, is the key: being able to get past the downtimes in one’s life as quickly as possible and getting back on with being your best, moving forward in continuous improvement.

👉🏾Remember, self-improvement is a hands-on project. That is to say, that without on-going implementation of the new ideas we learn, try as we might, we aren’t going to miraculously wake up one day changed people. No, we’ve got to act on those ideas and bits of advice we learn.

😃Here is a saying by Zig Ziglar; he has such a simple – yet powerful way of getting his point across:

Zig says, “People often say motivation doesn’t last, well that may be true, but neither does bathing – that’s why we recommend it every day.”

👉🏾Understanding the need to attend to motivation and inspiration on a daily basis can lead a more positive daily life. Let’s look at it another way. You wake up and you pretty much have a clean slate. In most cases your day is fresh – neither overly negative nor positive. 👉🏾That being the case – then wouldn’t it stand to reason that importing positive thoughts (i.e. reading, listening, reciting, meditating, viewing, etc.) first thing in the morning, and throughout your day could do wonders towards reprogramming the way in which you see your world?

👉🏾Read the above Zig Ziglar quote several times a day. Also, choose to read from an inspirational book or listen to inspirational songs at least three times a day. In addition, immediately balance any negative experiences with something positive.

👉🏾Given the events of most people’s days this isn’t always feasible, but this approach can pay dividends and is worth attempting. Keep in mind that no matter how great any idea or advice is, unless YOU choose to implement it and give it a fair shot to work in your life you’re not going to get results.

Let me say that again – because it’s that important!

👉🏾YOU have to be a part of your own success journey. If you want to see real lasting change for the better in your life, you’ve got to be the biggest part of the process.

👉🏾So simply knowing that you can offset your negative feelings by introducing positive thoughts into your mind simply isn’t enough. No – you’ve got to actually do it – it’s going to mean keeping that inspirational book, or tape handy to refer to when you need to. It might mean stopping what you’re doing at the moment or even scheduling yourself some time to take in positive or motivational material.

👉🏾Like dieting or exercising, developing a positive mental attitude is a choice. It requires nurturing. It’s not always immediate, but if you will work on it, and cultivate it you will see results. And those around you will as well.

If you need help, I’m only a phone call, text, or DM away!

Monday Motivation

😄💪🏾Happy Motivation Monday Warriors, let’s get this week started right!

What you didn’t accomplish last week, you can do today!

Remember don’t give up….your successful life is on the way!!!

What does it take to be successful?

Glad you asked👇🏾

Ask around and you will find different answers to the formula of success. The truth is, success leaves clues and you can achieve the success in the area you desire by observing the common qualities and principles. They are simple and considered to be common sense but most people simply do not follow them.

Let me share with you one of my favorite quotes:

“There are no secrets to success. It is the results of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure” Colin Powell

As stated in that quote, there are three key factors to achieve massive success in your life:

1.Preparation

You don’t have to wait for everything to be perfect. Start with the first step and keep moving. Success doesn’t happen over night. Prepare, prepare, and prepare. You must be ready to receive the success you desire. Set your sight to the destination that you want to achieve, then work and prepare for the moment when the opportunity knocks your door.

2.Hard Work

Success needs hard work. Don’t listen to these ‘get rich quick’ schemes. You need to build your character and work hard on yourself and your business to achieve greatness. Work hard and work smart. Do the right things and do them in the right way. Don’t procrastinate. Take bold actions. Work long hours and craft your legacy.

3.Learning from failure

Successful people do not see failures as failures. They see them as important learning lessons. Lessons that are capable of giving them insights to prevent such mistakes from happening again. By adopting this mindset of turning each failure into a learning lesson or opportunity, you can never fail until you yourself quit.

Preparation, hard work and learning from your failures are the fundamentals to building your bright future.

And Giving Up isn’t an option!!!!💪🏾

Merry Xmas Eve 🎄

Good morning friends, happy Monday and Christmas Eve! 🤗

Lord, sometimes the Advent season can be stressful, even difficult.

There are moments of awkwardness when someone gives you a gift and you have nothing for them, or vice versa.

There are moments of loneliness amid the bustle. The pains of fractured relationships seem especially sharp at this time of the year.

Please keep my eyes focused on you. Help me not get so invested in the idea of a ”perfect holiday” that I neglect my daily time in prayer.

Wishing all of you an amazing day, sending virtual hugs to those in need of one! 🤗🥰

Remember to put your mental health first and continue to stay focused!

Merry Christmas,

Olivia 🎄💋

Monday Motivation: Goals

🔅The ability to set goals and to develop a plan for the accomplishment of those goals is arguably the most important ingredient of success.

Mastering this skill will enable you to achieve your dreams faster than you ever thought possible.

The goal-achieving system below is a powerful, yet simple strategy that can be used to help you achieve anything in life that you desire.

👉🏾1. Set your goal.

The first step is to find a goal that is big enough to inspire you. Unless you are truly inspired to accomplish the goal, it is just a wish. By calling it a “goal”, you are affirming that (a) you desire it intensely, (b) you truly believe in your ability to achieve your goal and (c) you are willing to pay the price in advance for achieving your goal.

👉🏾2. Write down your goal.

Writing out your goal stimulates the “filtering” part of your brain, called the Reticular Activating System (RAS). When you write down your goal, the RAS begins collecting relevant information, then sends results to the conscious part of your mind. It acts “behind the scenes”, causing you to become aware of opportunities that would have otherwise gone unnoticed. Make sure that the goal is positive, is written in the present tense, is action-oriented, and is specific and as detailed as possible.

👉🏾3.Establish a deadline for the achievement of your goal.

By setting a deadline, your subconscious is activated to ensure the achievement of your goal within the prescribed time frame. If you follow all the steps in this process, and your projections are realistic, then you will achieve your goal by the deadline.

👉🏾4.Determine how you will benefit from achieving the goal.

You will only be compelled to achieve your goal if it is something that inspires you, something that causes such intense desire in you that you are willing to do whatever it takes to accomplish your goal. By writing down the reasons you want to achieve your goal, you’ll discover how intense your desire really is.

👉🏾5. Identify what stands between you and your goal.

There will probably be several elements standing between you and your goal. Make a list of these “challenges”, and rank them in order of priority. Then, begin taking action to remove each of the elements that stands in the way of the accomplishment of your goal.

We only have a month left, get up off that does and go tackle those goals!!!! You will only regret not starting!!!
