Go 4 It: 4 Tips 4 Your Best Week

True or False: 

“There are people in this world who truly BELIEVE they have NO CONTROL over their ultimate success and happiness.”

Sadly, the answer is TRUE. 

And, unfortunately, YOU may even be one of them. 

New Week, New Game Plan: 

We don’t have time for the “Blame Game.” The world has too much going on to be out to get you. Don’t take it personally. We don’t have time for that. 

Here’s the Move: 

It’s time to recognize WE are ultimately responsible for OUR OWN happiness and success. Working toward this goal is as easy as 4 simple steps.

Best News Yet: Following this plan is a CHOICE we are ALLOWED to make everyday. 

Choosing to be happy and successful may feel like a daunting task to those in the deep, dark depths of a pity pit, so consider this your lifeline. 

Just CHOOSE to climb the rope.  

ONE: Strategic Energy Focus 

Our daily energy level is much like a bank account. 

A constant cycle of deposits and withdraws, sometimes ending in an overdraft fee. 

Though there are “non-negotiable responsibilities” we have throughout the course of the day that withdraw energy in various increments, there are SO many electives that disguise themselves like a pesky monthly subscription: $0.99 here… $1.29 there… 

Folks- these things add up and impact that bottom line. Overdraft fees look like sickness, exhaustion, maybe even depression. 

Find them and CANCLE them. 

Because there are only so many hours in a day, you must be strategic in where you focus your energy. And, like any budget, you must pay attention to the line items.  

Before you set your detailed, daily plan, think about the overall components of your day in terms of “Requirements” and “Electives.” 

Then ask yourself: 

Where are you spending the most “elective” time? Are these “electives” bringing you up or bringing you down? 

Remember, YOU are in charge of YOU, so budget wisely!

TWO: M-O-V-E 30 

You cannot argue with science. 

It is a proven fact that a person who spends 30 minutes a day being active in some way, shape, or form is a happier person. While you are assessing your week, commit to 30 minutes a day of physical ANYTHING! 

You do not have to be an exercise enthusiast to make this happen. 

Like to shop?- Walk the mall for 30 minutes. 

Like to dance?- Turn on your favorite playlist and jig around the kitchen. 

WHATEVER! 

Just get off your booty and move! 

THREE: Be the PRODUCER of YOUR Plan 

Think about your day like a motion picture. 

There are scripts, costumes, arranging of finances, edits… and so on, and so on…

The PRODUCER of a motion picture oversees the day to day production and makes certain boxes are being checked and wheels stay in motion down the correct route. 

They help create the plan and they make certain they STICK TO THE PLAN. 

At the beginning of the day, take 5-10 minutes to jot down your plan. 

Yes, actually write it. 

Yes, actually detail it. 

YES, actually PRODUCE it! 

FOUR: The RAH-RAH Rule 

If I can offer you the most important piece of advice I have learned to date, it is this: 

You HAVE to be your own cheerleader. 

Every single day. 

Even the days you’d rather choke on your own pom-pon. 

Those are days that are actually the most important. 

While it probably feels like second nature to offer praise to loved ones, self praise can feel very forced and almost laughable. 

Where to even begin? 

Let’s go back to being strategic. 

The RAH-RAH Rule: 

Three times a day, take the opportunity to give yourself a positive nod following this type of guideline. Times can be adjusted to fit your demanding schedule, but alas, they must be spaced appropriately throughout the day to keep KEEP THAT SPIRIT UP! 

  • 9am: “R”: Focus on your RESOURCES

Which resources are working well this morning? 

Your ability to make people laugh? Your ability to provide for your family? Your ability to think clearly? Your ability to engage with a positive support network? 

“Hey self! You are doing a great job with (insert resource themed compliment here).” 

  • 12pm: “A”: Focus on your APPEARANCE:

What is it about your physical appearance that is working today? 

Does your blouse color compliment your eyes? Is your hair cooperating more than usual? Do your calf muscles look particularly defined? Does your smile appear kinder or brighter? 

“Hey self! I noticed (insert appearance themed compliment here). Way to go!” 

  • 9pm “H”: Focus on your HEART

What is in your heart that deserves recognition? 

Were you kind to a stranger today? Did you listen to a friend in need? 

“Hey self! I am really proud of you for (insert heart themed compliment here). That was really admirable.”  

That’s it. 

It’s that simple. 

Take back the power and make it YOUR best week! 

Because ultimately, this is about you. 

Your Stage. Your Life. 

Choreograph Your Journey. 

Best, 

Kelly D
