Drive

Will power isn't always easy to apply. It's more complicated than just trying your best. The power to have will power comes from your drive and determination. It's one thing to want something and to try our best to succeed. But, it's another to have the drive to keep it going.

Your drive will keep you moving forward. There's a determination to be the best you know how. However, our drive can sometimes be brought down by negative thoughts and energy. This is why, from the beginning, you've been focusing on how to quiet the negative nuisances that creep into your daily life.

Your drive is what keeps you focused on your goal. They sometimes say that your dive is what overcomes failure. If you're tired of starting over, then stop quitting.

But, how do you find your drive? How do you find your force to be determined to succeed?

Start with a plan. Make a list. Know your end goal. Be realistic with your expectations to get there. Understand the consequences of starting over. Ask yourself, how many times to I want to start over? or, do you want to reach your goal the first time? Understand the feeling of failure. Know that if you fail, you CAN start over again.

Your drive will come from the feelings of how bad you want it. Most importantly, know that your drive will be driven by hard work. You can't have drive and determination unless you put in the time and energy. If you don't do any of the work, it's not your destiny or your determination.

Put in the work to be the best you, you know how.

Be The Best You | Opportunity | Week Fifteen

Opportunity

When opportunity knocks it’s easy to give it a try. But, what if opportunity isn’t knocking? You keep waiting for it to happen. Sometimes we ask the Universe for a sign or an opportunity, but we don’t see it, hear it or feel it.

What if your opportunity comes from you creating it? You may or may not have heard of the term carpe diem. It’s a Latin phrase that means seize the day. The saying is used to urge someone to make the most of the present time and give little thought to the future.  

For a moment, be in the present and create your own opportunity and enhance the opportunity. When you move the opportunity forward you are increasing the probability of the opportunity to come to fruition. 

But how do you do this? How do you create your own opportunity? You may need to take a step back, be in the moment and analyze where you are now and where you want to be. 

If you know what steps you need to take, to be where you want to be, see the opportunity. Once you can identify the opportunity you can work your way to it. But, an opportunity is just that if you don’t take steps to making it happen. If you only look at the opportunity from afar, it may turn into a missed opportunity. The only way opportunities will work in your favor is if you have the drive to make them happen. Drive may just be your opportunity. If you have the will to make it happen, it’s an opportunity that won’t have the chance to slip away.

Do the work, see the opportunity, follow through and be come the best you know how.

Be The Best You | Clean | Week Fourteen

Clean

Live in the moment. One way to be in the moment is to be aware of everything around you. However if your surroundings are cluttered it's hard to focus. It may be tie to clean and de-clutter. 

By sorting through your possessions and getting rid of unnecessary stuff it opens your mind to a more breathable space. Holding onto things that you haven't used in a while - or even knew you had - will help you de-clutter. 

Sometimes a roadblock to de-cluttering is the fear of getting rid of things that are of sentimental value. This is where you'll need to dig deep into your emotions and find out the why behind your things. For example, perhaps you have a keychain that your grandmother gave you as a gift. You admired your grandmother, so, you feel that if you got rid of the key chain you'll forget about your grandmother. Deep down inside, you know this isn't true. But, whenever you see the keychain it makes you smile - and you think of her and all the wonderful memories you had. Then, that's okay to hag onto the keychain. But when it comes to getting rid of stuff, really look at the value it brings you. If it's just there, taking up space and there's really no meaning behind it, perhaps it's time to donate it. 

Donating is a wonderful way to de-clutter. This way you don't feel like you're actually getting rid of stuff, more so, your stuff is helping someone else. There are mental health benefits to having a clean space. It helps reduce anxiety, it increased your productivity, it helps your self-esteem and it'll spark creativity. All things you need to be the best you, you know how.
