We’ve all heard that term before and sometimes you can catch a hint of, “Where have you been?”
More often then not there’s questions, wonderment & even concern, but often we hear judgement.
Take fitness classes for instance; you start off strong and somewhere in the middle a distraction pops up then you stop. You want to go to class but you’re concerned about what others will say or think about you.
Why do we assume the worst? Honestly… what’s wrong with our brain? Are we self-sabotaging?
First of all nothings wrong with your brain but a few adjustments might need to happen to your thoughts. Let me rephrase, “Stink’n think’n will hold you back.”
Now that we’ve cleared the path, by identifying the clutter [stink’n think’n], let’s dive into the title of this blog. So if you’ve ever set a goal and failed, no worries, because this is how to re-start after a break.
#1 Ignore Negativity
From self-talk to nay-sayers, just ignore them. In my eBook, Walk In Beauty, I share strategies to help you realign and re-fresh your thoughts.
TIP: Create a Pinterest board with positive words and quotes. Commit to reading them daily. Here’s an example.
#2 Move Your Body
Sitting still in negative thoughts is counterintuitive to reaching goals. So if you have a desire to tone-up, sitting in a pool of failed attempts will not serve you.
TIP: No matter what type of goal you have commit to doing one  thing daily. That’s one small step towards _______. [You name it.]
#3 Feed Your Soul With Happiness
Don’t wait for someone to make you happy or give you purpose. Get around happy people, reflect their joy and create purpose
TIP: Write down several reasons as to WHY you’re glad to re-start a project or fitness challenge. Post it on your fridge and read it daily.
#4 Allow Nature To Inspire You
How many times has it rained, stormed and thundered? Yet a tiny seed finds a home then sprouts a leaf. Nature has to overcome human occupation and it never relents. Mother Nature is an amazing resource of strength.
TIP: Grab a planner, I use a Make Mahalo Planner, then head outdoors. Feel the sun, breeze or raindrop on your skin and create a plan-of-action.
#5 Think “Longevity”
We mistake failures for death. We fail and assume that the dream or goal is dead. Often sweeping it under the rug of unfulfilled ideas. However, life goes on. A failed attempt is just a minor set back.
TIP: Adjust your plan and swap your schedule around. Make TIME, don’t wait for TIME. Because TIME is eternal, it never ends.
MIND - Ignore Negativity
BODY - Move Your Body
SOUL - Feed Your Soul With Happiness
NATURE - Allow Nature To Inspire You
ETERNAL - Think “Longevity”
Fortunately each of the five areas mentioned come from the, “5 Realms Of Beauty” a teaching format which is written into Walk In Beauty. There are so many details that would not fit in a blogpost, which is why I wrote the eBook. Also, if you purchase the eBook it comes with printable[s] for every chapter. It’s sort of a workbook/manual to guide you on your journey.
