Can you give me next week’s winning lottery numbers?

Standard

>Are you psychic?

>Can you predict the future?

>Do you know for sure what’s going to happen?

>If so, can you give me next week’s winning lottery numbers?

No?

However, I’m willing to wager that you may live like you do……….

Are you living with what MIGHT happen or what you THINK may happen?

Here’s the thing, I get why may have not tackled certain things, I get why you haven’t taken action………

……you may think it’s because you are lazy or unmotivated & you put it off because you can’t be bothered.

However, procrastination is very often translated as another word for fear…..

I get it…. I get it because I’m guilty of doing exactly the same…….

It’s powerful isn’t it? The fear…………..

However what you are scared of very often hasn’t happened yet, am I right?

You are scared of what you THINK MIGHT happen…

>If you go to the gym people MIGHT judge you (they won’t, but that’s another story).

>You think you MIGHT not be fit enough to take part in what others are doing…

>You THINK your trainer will expect nothing but broccoli & burpees from you…( not me!)

>You are worried what people MIGHT say… What others MIGHT think….

>You are worried what happens IF you fail……

You are worried about what simply hasn’t happened.

Are you are stopping today’s progress by focusing on tomorrow?

Try to live in the present, try to face your fear head on…

That’s all for today. until the next time,

The most inspiring video I watched this weekend (it’s not what you may think)………….

Standard

I was having a chilled out evening last night, after being out for a great meal….

I was laid on the sofa scrolling through my phone, when I stumbled across a video one of my best mates had sent me a while back….

I’ve sure you’ve seen MANY inspirational videos & quotes all over Facebook & Instagram, some of which are great, others are lacking at best…..

As I’ve said before, watching these videos can give you a start…it may help to spark something, it may resonate with you, BUT without action…it’s just visuals on a screen….

Back to the video in question, it was only filmed on his iPhone at his home, but the quality is nowhere near as important as the content…

Motivation & inspiration can present itself to you in many ways………..

The video he sent showcased his son (age 3), his wife (holding their daughter) & himself all dancing & singing in their kitchen to sounds of Macklemore’s ‘Downtown’ (link to the tune is below)…

The video is a reminder of the true value of fun, the real value of taking time to just simply have a laugh with those around you, and is without a doubt a great advert for what having a young family should be all about….

We all get caught up the distractions of life………….

Your goals are important, whether its relationship, financial or your health & wellbeing, just try not to stop having fun along the way………
.
Stress & worry can often easily take over & cloud the simple things in life, like having a dance off in your kitchen!

Until the next time,
