I’m late, late, late today!!!
Holy Smokes I’ve had a crazy day – things to do, places to be, people to meet.
In fact I’m so busy right now I’ve set myself some strict rules to help me get s*** done.
I’m “Taming my Interruptions”
1- I’m only checking my emails a couple of times a day instead of every 5 minutes. I never realised how much of a “Time Vampire” my inbox was!!
2- I’ve set the same rules for my Social media – are YOU one of those folk that are checking their news feed every 5 minutes? Do yourself a favour and take the app off your phone – have you any idea how much it can affect your headspace? All it takes is one comment to throw you into a funk and affect how he rest of your day goes.
Self Discipline is theee magic power that makes you virtually unstoppable.
What are the stories that you construct for YOURself?
The ones you run in your head?
This is important.
Because the stories that constantly run through your head shape how you live your life.
This is something I’ve known for a long while, but every now and then such things strike you again and remind you that you’re in control of your life.
Or at least, you’re in control of how you react to the things that happen to you – which you often can’t do anything about.
Yesterday morning, I had one of those moments.
I don’t sleep much so my day normally starts at 4.30am.
Yesterday, I was awake bright as a button from 3am.
F*** & Double F***!!!
I told myself I’d be tired, too tired to get anything useful done all day.
I was running through a list of things I could cancel, postpone or ignore.
All because I had told myself I’d be too tired ….
So why did I run my “I’ll be too tired” script through my head?
Why did I make things more difficult than they have to be?
Because once I’m up and doing, I love being up early and getting my s*** done!
It’s all part of the Emotional Recipes we create. You need ingredients to make a recipe right?
Well each one of your emotions combine to make a recipe:
“Not Worthy Soup”.
Each of these takes a different kind of ingredient.
For example for me to feel happy or joyous, I need to feel well rested, on top of things, connected to and serving my tribe (YOU). Each individual ingredient on it’s own, wouldn’t necessarily make me do the Happy Dance but, all together, they make a pretty good recipe for Happiness.
For a long, long time I had the “I’m not good enough” script running through my head, too.
In fact, I want to let you in on a little secret: that script still runs through my head more often than I’m comfortable with. When I’m tired, or worried, or a little bit stressed, that nasty little voice will pop up and ask who the hell am I to be doing this? To be delivering this training? To be giving this speech?
To be running this business?
It’s insidious. It’s manipulative.
And it can Fuck. Right. Off.
The trick isn’t necessarily to eliminate that voice, because I don’t think most people can.
The trick is to acknowledge it’s there, then say ok this is how I am currently feeling – what can I do to get myself out of this funk? How can I make my day better?
Because let me tell you, , YOU are good enough.
So step up to the challenge of looking at YOUR Emotional Recipes and seeing what ingredients you can eliminate.
It’s tough, though. I know that.
Which is why it’s a bit pants doing this kind of thing alone.
This is the kind of thing I’m working with my girls on in the Empowerment Project.
Showing them how to reclaim their lives and be present in their own Power.
They’re taking control …
My RAK today was for my wonderful hubbie David – I decided I wanted to light up the outside of MDHQ.
Not just lights but coloured spotlights (they can change colour too lol) so he spent all day yesterday doing that in spite of his own massive workload. So because I was working from home today, I cooked a week’s worth of lunches and dinners for him (normally I just do the shopping bit!).
PS Start a new script in your head.
Tell yourself: “I am good enough. But I want to keep getting better.”
