Although we are nearly half way through the year, plenty of us are of course still aiming to achieve new goals or take on new habits. Altough there is a lot of advice, opinions, and tips out there to get people to those points of success, including my recent posts, nothing compares to starting with self and having a vision for the things you wish to accomplish. One way to do that is by creating a "Personal Vision Statement".
A personal vision statement is literally a statement that summarizes and reminds you of what you expect of yourself and the qualities you'd like to gain. Why a personal vision statement? Here are 3 reasons:
I recently saw a quote that read "don't just be good to others, be good to yourself too", and it had me thinking: are we truly good to ourselves? Does everything we do honor ourselves in some sort of way? Honoring self is a task that runs deep, and one that I've had to strengthen in my own life. I could easily blame being stressed out and used up on other people, but they were just were signs that I hadn't been honoring myself, and I'm sure many other people have experienced this at one point or another in life. So what can we do to honor ourselves better than what we've been practicing? Begin with these six tips to change the way you treat yourself, and get better results out of life.
As we increase in age and maturity, it is expected that our responsibilities increase with life changes. Of course, then begins the challenge and change in routine, causing us to perceive much of life as complicated and stressful. School, jobs, family, relationships, and personal needs often add to the frustrations of life and many people are heard speaking of their frustrations as if they are part of the job description of life. I often enter conversations with people that I haven't connected with for quite some time and upon asking "How are you?" or anything along those lines, I receive some semi-depressing response dealing with their job, financial situation, or education. Because I never ask someone "How are you" unless I sincerely desire to know, I leave these sorts of mini-conversations confused, because the person spoke nothing of themselves, but of everything outside of themselves. Now certainly, mostly everything outside of us and how we perceive it is a reflection of everything inside of us, emotionally, spiritually, physically, and mentally, therefore, it is easy to see many things, including our jobs, education, and financial situations as a major part of us. Being that mostly everything outside of us and how we perceive them deals greatly and accordingly to our emotional, spiritual, physical, and mental state, if our initial perception of these things are negative, what can we conclude about ourselves? Could it be that our frustrations concerning many of life's elements suggest that we change our innermost self? If so, what is it that we must change?
Changing our inner selves to alleviate the "frustrations" concerning daily life deals greatly with knowledge. There are two parts of knowledge which must be addressed in order to obtain happiness while in the presence of this sort of frustration: knowledge of your frustration, and knowledge of self. Quite simply, the two really go hand in hand. If the source of your frustrations is anything that you were not physically born with, then it is an issue of self knowledge.Things that we accumulate along the way in life's journey are simply reflections of us, that are not definitions of us. In order to understand this, we must know ourselves. Too often, many people get caught up in the "serious" parts of life, the status quo, and the success measurements, and make the immense mistake of defining themselves by how much they've accumulated externally while on their life journey. This happens because of lack of knowledge of self. When we do not travel inward and have that conversation to get closer to our inner man/woman, we miss out on intricate details about our personality, our likes, dislikes, our needs, the desires of the heart, the greatness of self, and much more.
Nothing changes until... something changes, and if nothing changes, then nothing changes. Whether we want to admit that or not, our refusal to change is the reason we lack what we desire and is almost always our own fault. It's totally human to want a life change, but also totally human to lack the discipline to get there.
The secret with any change is to start small and build. The best place to start? Mentally. The beautiful thing about mental change is its ability to alter the external. This is perhaps the most solidifying form of change. Speaking from experience, the journey of changing your mentality is an ultimate game changer.
Start with developing these 3 mental habits which has the power to change your outlook, thought process, attitude, and life quality for the better!
Did you know that May is recognized as "National Recommitment Month"? On the list of too many national days, months, and weeks to count, this is actually one I find necessary and will completely stand by. While commitment may be the act of simply doing what you said you would do no matter what, it unfortunately isn't that simple for many. However, commitment isn't something that we can just brush under the rug in our everyday lives. Commitment is a major component of everyday life. So no, there is no waking up one day and saying "This commitment thing is hard, I'm not going to do it today". It simply does not work that way. Everyday is a commitment. You may be committed to going to work to receive pay, or committed to taking a shower to stay clean, committed to eating a meal to nourish your body, committed to paying for services and costs to receive their benefits and features, etc. The list goes on, but as you can clearly see, commitment is a way of life, and there's no escaping it.
May being National Recommitment Month is perfect for focusing our energies into what we truly desire. It's the fifth month of the year, foreshadowing our halfway through the year mark, reminding us of the goals and visions that we've had in place at the start of the new year, and pulling us out of the comfort that we may have unconsciously slipped into.
