Hello everyone! Yes, it is Monday again and I do hope by now after listening to all of my podcasts (29 weeks of them) that you have a better attitude about Monday’s! Thank you for coming back, yet again, for your weekly dose of Monday Motivation. I had a great birthday week and yesterday after my run I thought about how I felt at 47. All of a sudden, I was like “CRAP that’s awfully close to 50?!” AM I SUPPOSED to be out running 7 miles or more? How should I be FEELING? I’ve actually had people say “at your age should you”? WHAT THE “F” does that mean? Haha. If you rock it – DO IT! So, after the wrinkle cream and toner went on my face I gave myself a good look – I thought about how my body felt and I thought – I feel better than I did in my 30’s! I’ve done more. I’ve achieved more. I HAVE MORE, including my health! I’ve been gluten free for 7 and only started running 8 years ago, after my broken leg healed.
We all realize we are on “borrowed time”, and that’s not very exciting or MOTIVATING to think about is it? But it’s what we DO with the time that matters isn’t it?
Last week I wanted to get you thinking about and to tell me “what you are good at”. What makes you an expert in your field. Did you figure it out? Or maybe you’re still thinking about it. Well, keep thinking…clearly you have time on your side! Haha. I’m an expert at getting people to go for it! To step off the CRAZY TRAIN, the hamster wheel of life, even out of their comfort zone to achieve their goals .. their success. Now, it doesn’t always happen at the speed I would like, but I have to remember it’s not my journey, my demons or my fear that I’m working through and everyone has a different pace. I just get so excited with the potential I see in people, that I want everyone to GO GO GOOOOOO! HAHA.
Listen to this weeks podcast to hear about a conversation I had with a client whose reply about his birthday wasn't as positive an experience as mine.
So his birthday, him being a year older is now his motivation to figure his shit out and get moving! So we talked thru his goals and brainstormed ways to get there. We devised a plan, action steps and who can help him.
With this client, he knows what he’s great at, it was just the HOW that was creating a block. And the WHO could help. The FEAR kicked in with his recent birthday, but he is using the fear as a motivator vs. a road block.
