MIND – Part Three
‘The most beautiful thing you can wear is confidence’
Brendon Patrick- TOTEM FITNESS
Your confidence can be an extraordinary thing; some people seem abundant in it and never appear to ever run out, while others struggle to even make it out into public each day.
There’s a strong connection between a Positive Mindset and Confidence and it’s not by any coincidence because, positivity is the prime ingredient to building overflowing levels of confidence.
Using a genuine smile as an example; it’s always a positive thing and, is often enough to exude confidence and brighten a recipients day.
Confidence can take some time to build up and, for some and, it can be hard to come by. However, just like a positive mindset, we can readily achieve our desired levels of confidence by conditioning ourselves with daily repetitive actions.
Forget about Being Busy and Focus on What’s Important
It’s easy to get wrapped up in the notion of having to be constantly busy in order to achieve our goals. I’d like to challenge the Status Quo by highlighting these as thought patterns that can see you over commit yourself.
By spreading yourself too thin and over committing your available time and energy resources, we run the risk of not achieving many of the things we set out to accomplish.
To avoid over committing this, we need to be placing focus on what is important to us and sweep away the noisy clutter. If you’re doing something with your time that’s of low importance, you need to be 100% certain that it isn’t stealing focus away from things that are higher in priority!
Prioritizing and Mapping Out Your Goals
In order to create daily habits that focus on what is important, we need to prioritise the three biggest goals that goals that mean the most to us. Map out in a notepad what tasks and milestones associated with achieving these three main goals in a prioritized order.
The aim is to map out specific items for each of the three goals and designate time out in your day focused on contributing towards each task.
Don’t even think too much about the overall goal, just remain disciplined and consistently apply yourself to finishing these tasks each day and your goal will come to you as a reward.
For example, if your goal is to lose 5kg, write down every task that is involved in achieving that goal. This could be meal preparation and a 5km run followed by a core circuit planned at separate stages throughout your day.
Create a Daily To Do List.
Only consign the most important tasks to this list; organizing it in order of priority assists greatly in focusing on what’s relevant to your goals.
Each and every time you complete a task, celebrate it as a micro achievement in your journey to practise self gratitude and grow your self confidence.
Now your confidence is riding high; this is the perfect time to move straight onto your next task and continue to work on building yourself a winning habit.
Whether you’ve been leading a mostly active or sedentary lifestyle, chances are that you or someone you know has experienced an exercise-related injury.
It’s safe to say that most gym-goers have encountered the dreaded feeling of gym intimidation at some point in their life. For some people, overcoming anxiety about the gym may be harder than the workout itself!
