Fit Tip Friday – Change Your Mindset

I am so often asked how I stay motivated and consistently show up.

And honestly, some days, I have NO IDEA how I do that, I just do. Those days are rare, but they happen.

Other days, it helps immensely that I have a friend/success partner/workout accountabilibuddy that’s on the same page as me, and pushes me to show up, and reminds me why we do it, and on days we can, joins me virtually to crush it together.

And some days, it’s the amazing group Sara and I run, full of amazing ladies who are also working on their best self, who are also showing up consistently, who also motivate, inspire, encourage and empower me.

But also, something that worked for me was changing my mindset from feeling like I ‘have to’ (as if wellness is a chore or something 🤦‍♀️) to feeling blessed to be ‘able to’.

I have PUSHED my body, and she is CAPABLE… and that is a GIFT, one I try not to take for granted.

And those rare moments where my mindset shifts from “get to” to “have to” I remind myself that there are people who are unable – perhaps due to disease, perhaps due to injury, perhaps due to another circumstance. And so it makes it easier to realize I am blessed to be able, and that becomes fuel to JUST DO IT.

When you change the way you see things, magic happens! 💕

Mindset Monday – Change Your Life

Sick of where you are in life? Want more, want better, want change? First, you have to change YOURSELF , and to do THAT, you need to change your MINDSET.

Hands down, your mindset is your biggest OBSTACLE, but also your greatest ASSET, when its one of POSITIVITY, not negativity.

Having a positive, growth mindset is the secret to changing your life… successful people, people who change their lives around, they are OPEN to new approaches and are WILLING to experiment with new solutions. They don’t box themselves in, they stay open to the possibility that if they want something bad enough, there IS a way, they just have to FAIL FORWARD until they discover it.

If you can get your mindset right, it will greatly help everything else – I speak from a lot of experience here!

Mindset Monday

Having been working extensively on my negative mindset for almost a year now, it’s interesting to reflect.

On the one hand, I have come pretty far, and it has paid off greatly in so many different areas of life – I am now a firm believer that mindset really is the biggest piece of any puzzle. I see how much easier life is with a positive outlook and a firm belief in my ability to get through whatever life throws at me.

On the other hand, becoming so aware of mindset heightens my awareness of how negative other people (and this world in general) can sometimes be, and it can be quite a battle not to fall down that rabbit hole.

I am still a work in progress, which is why this is such a battle – as hard as I work, it is sometimes so easy to fall back into old habits!

It is worth the battle though, because truly, shifting my way to a more positive mindset is one of the greatest projects I have ever taken on!
