With the start of a new school year, there has been a lot of talk about clean slates and fresh starts. Today, we talk about that concept and take two different angles:
1. On one hand, we should look at everyday as a fresh start, a new chance to make choices that lead us closer to the person that we want to become, the goal we want to achieve or the milestone that we want to hit. Why wait until some random day on the calendar when you can just start today?
2. On the other hand, do we ever actually get a clean start? Our experiences shape us and our view of the world, so is there such a thing as a fresh start? Can we just forget about the past and start again? And if so, do you want to?
We talk about reality vs. perception, and how all events and people in our life can help to teach us things and help us to grow. Yes, each day is a new day, and we should be conscious about the choices that we make, but changing our perceptions on past...
When it comes to getting anything done in our day, we need a reason. The more challenging and new a task is, the greater reason, motivation, and focus we need to accomplish that task. So many people are able to start a new exercise plan or healthy eating lifestyle, but fall back to old habits after a few weeks. When a race or a workout gets tough, knowing your reason for why you are doing it helps you get through the rough patches.
In today’s episode, we talk about finding different types of motivation and share different ideas that help to push us to be more. Whether the drive to continue when a job gets difficult comes from inside or outside, knowing your motivation will help you keep going. By having multiple reasons to keep going, we can choose the option that best motivates in that moment.
Sometimes the inspiring poster is enough. Other times we need more. Check out this episode and take some time to really think...
