When you work toward human growth, patterns become incredibly important. When you’re in the pattern, it’s like you can’t see the wood through the trees, and only once you come through to the other side do you gain the self-awareness to ask ourselves why it happened. When we put something out there with no resistance- bang, it comes when you’re not ready, and you just have to take it. When we start assigning meaning to it and having more to lose by not getting it, it gets infinitely harder to achieve.
Being bold essentially means being comfortable in your own skin no matter what. The best way to start truly embracing yourself is to stop agreeing with people when you don’t actually agree with them. Relationships come and go; if they don’t, it means you’re not growing. The only constant person in your life is you, which is why it’s so important always to have your back no matter what. People are often afraid of rocking the boat because they’re afraid they won’t swim if the situation goes bad. It’s important to remember that if people aren’t okay with who you are when you love yourself, those are not your people. And if you’re giving someone a less authentic version of yourself, they deserve better as well.
Never rely on pure motivation to get things done. You have to repair and raise your standards for yourself every day. Once you approach who you want to be as a commitment to who you are, and tackle things one small step at a time. Every time you switch your focus back and forth between creative ideas, it takes a few minutes to switch completely. An action can be the smallest thing, but we tend to self-sabotage when we talk about doing something and not doing it. You have to get into the habit of taking consistent action. Once you take that leap of faith, you’re not going to be the same person, and most of the time, you’re not going to want to go back to that person anyway.
Sleep and exercise are two of the best things you can do for your brain, both in the moment and long term. Most of the time, you’re going to want to be asleep by midnight due to the circadian rhythm. If you’re over or undersleeping, it’s hard to get yourself on a consistent schedule but stabilizing that routine is very important. Having dim lights and low stimulation shortly before bed can help you wind down and get to sleep more easily. Outside of sleep, a balanced diet with healthy fats, sugars, and oils is great for the brain. Taking care of your body and your brain is so important to elevating yourself and being your best. Ultimately, your power lies in how you respond to situations. No matter what is going on around you, everything that occurs is based on how you choose to perceive it and respond.
