Cleaning Up Your Mindset

Updated: Oct 1, 2019

We all feel this way eventually in our careers, relationships, or everyday life. After new routines, bad habits, and repetitive behaviors become accustomed to our everyday lives, we can feel grey or at a fault in our everyday lives leaving us uninspired unmotivated and ultimately unhappy.

Which is completely ok. Everyone experiences this ‘grey area’ at some point in their lives, and as much fun and safe self-loathing can be or feel, staying in this mindset cannot become a consistent part of your daily routine, as eventually it will begin to dictate all aspects of your life, whether that be business, your work, relationships, etc.

Talking about your problems to others constantly complaining about them, then refusing to do anything about them to solve them, is something everyone is guilty of. Problems are a great way to relate to people and are comforting to loathe in after a while. But unless you’re willing to solve them or think of ways to move past them, these problems will continue to haunt you until you yourself decide to do something to solve them. Of course, it is alright to ask for help when needed, but complaining as opposed to acting will get you nowhere.

Think of it this way, say you were a mediocre athlete training for a marathon. You could be horrible at running when you first start, but with the right mindset and correct systems in place to set you up for success, you could potentially win the marathon. Instead of doing things impulsively or because you want to, apply the phrase “ Will it makes me run faster” or “Will it help me win the race” before choosing to do something.

“Will going out to eat make me run faster?” “Will staying up late the night before the marathon make me run faster?”. Viewing things in a new perspective can and will alter your opinions and mindset and can help you see the world in ways you may have not seen before. Using this logic or altering the phrase to meet or a line with your goals is a good start to helping yourself stay on track.

Along with improving on self-discipline, another key factor to feeling less grey is to be thankful for what you do have, and to give back and to pay it forward any opportunity you have to do so. Leaving a positive impact on someone else will reflect back on you over time. You get what you give, and if you give kindness, appreciation, and generosity, you will receive that good energy back in return.

Improve your mindset by removing negative thoughts, amp up your self-discipline, and give back to others. Not only will these steps help you improve yourself, but improve your impact on others as well. Continuing to put good energy out into the world is the best thing you can do for yourself and others.

To improve our mindsets, some of our team members are partaking in the #75HardChallenge! This challenge consists of two workouts daily, which have to be 45 minutes minimum, with one of the workouts having to be done outside, regardless of the weather conditions. (Jokes on them it's going to be mid-December when the challenge ends!) Besides the workouts, the challenge also consists of reading 10 pages of a self-improvement or entrepreneurial book daily. You have to stick to a clean diet, to match your fitness goals, drink a gallon of water, and provide a progress picture every day! No booze no excuses, especially for workouts, as the challenge still goes on even during poor weather conditions!
