I often look back at previous posts and quickly understand the matter of WHY I deemed certain aspects of fitness and mindset were SO important to share at that time.
Turns out, I post MORE about MOTIVATION, when that’s what I, MYSELF require.
I talk about setting FRESH GOALS and SHIFTING THE FOCUS with clients, when I myself have managed to manoeuvre my way out of the unfavourable or gravitate toward my STRENGTHS.
We contribute our own cases and stake our own claims into the narrative of our own room for GROWTH, but quite simply,
ARE YOU ACTUALLY GETTING BETTER?
A NEW YEAR does not always have to warrant some elaborate blueprint to success. Nor should it culminate a pressure to bring forth monumental changes and flip the steering wheel purely for the sake of choosing a different direction.
When we talk about enlightenment, rebirth or simply turning over a NEW LEAF, that doesn’t necessarily have to involve abandoning an identity because it may have stumbled, hesitated or been subject to scrutiny. You don’t have to change who you are for the sake of fixing what was broken or rectifying your mistakes. Be the same person, equipped with more knowledge to fare for a better experience, LIFE. Experiences worth striving toward and conditions in life which are are often difficult to cultivate are essentially that.
The point is…
Are you settling for the familiarity of GOOD, at the expense of GREAT
Do you teeter with the idea of failure, at the expense of success?
We are products of the conversations we have and the ideas to which we are exposed to .
On a factory belt of interaction, influence and interpretation, our judgement is quality control.
We have our own innate magnetism, polarities of positive and negative energy, to which we attract or repel.
If we fail to uphold the capacity to remain positive, grateful and content with matters beyond our control,
we create a negative impasse which can only be treated by GRATIFICATION.
Look at the word GRATIFICATION and notice what initially started out GRATITUDE…
was quickly interrupted by DESIRE.
When DESIRE is the driving force of motivation, it creates a continuum of NEED.
The NEED to feel better, the NEED to be liked, the NEED to eat to your hearts content, The NEED to be in shape.
You can see how conflicting NEEDS are,
Such a cycle of NEEDING is one big rollercoaster ride of NEEDS UNFULFILLED.
Even when you are satisfied, it is NEVER enough.
When you don’t NEED anything.
EVERYTHING is a bonus.
So how do we remove the NEED?
How do we CREATE HEALTHY DESIRE’S and MOTIVATION worth getting excited about?
It’s all down to how the extremes of how things makes us feel…
Inspired? Intelligent? Rewarded? Satisfied?
Inspired but not Radicalised.
Intelligent but not Arrogant
Rewarded but not spoiled.
Satisfied but not over-indulged.
There are fine lines between actions and consequence, impulse and desire, depending upon the earlier dispositions we carry into our lives.
But if you could brush off the faux pas of character that were preventing you from living the life that you want, could you act more graciously to impulse, overcome desire and live a life with TEMPERANCE?
Leave that version of yourself behind.
The person that remains is who you deserve to be.
