Question for you... 'how do you level up?' ....'What the hell?', you may ask?....
You know, how do you lift your act, how do you give yourself a kick up the ass, self-motivate, inspire yourself to move, to get out of a rut, to grow, to develop, to raise your game, to RISE?
Do you have some strategies that you use to help you get on with what you KNOW you need to do, to be where you want to be?
If you don't, feel free to try mine.
It took me a while to get my balance and implement what works for me. It's evolved as I have evolved, and as I've got older. No doubt it will change as I get older, but these 3 things seem to be my constant. These are my 'go to's' whenever I find myself procrastinating, playing small, or getting side tracked—ALL of which I do often because I'm a creative. We just don't do locked in order, square boxes or compartments very well—we need to feel, and fluff out our wings often so we can feel that freedom otherwise we get a little stir crazy!
For me, when I need to bring myself into focus and direct myself straight, lift/rise or just get the hell on with it—I do a combination of 3 things;
- I get out out and move my body. I go to the gym put my headphones in and listen to a motivational audio book or my beast master motivational playlist - god if THAT doesn't get you moving!!!! Bloody hell—it does me! For my soul though, it's always a surf. Honestly if you've never tried it, give it a go, it's the most incredible feeling of freedom, happiness, connectedness—you feel at one with source in a way that you just don't get with any other sport including swimming, it's amazing!
- Music is my second go too. Put on your tunes, lose yourself in the music and let it lift you. Always, always, always helps me lift from being lazy or being sad, or being anything other than my best. Try it—just don't put anything on that's NOT going to motivate you ok?
- Meditation—I literally HAVE to have solo time, and solo space and I need to meditate almost every day otherwise I just feel myself vibing lower. Training my mind, freeing up room for my soul to speak to me, guide me, direct me, embrace the human me is essential to helping me lift.
We're already into the second month of the new year, so if you haven't got yourself aligned, clear, focused and moving in the direction you need to be going in to start achieving some of the things you have on your list, give these a whirl! at the very least they are going to help you in some way.
