It can be hard to start every day with a renewed mentality. After all, if you're like me you wake up with the same problems, the same worries, and the same obligations and promises that occupy every day. But that shouldn't keep you down; I want to help you reset every day, using tips that work for me, so that you're not only getting more out of the day, you're also putting more positive energy into yourself and the people around you.
Reframe Your Circumstances
The first thing you have to realize is that you can't put too much stress on yourself. The world is already going to try to keep you down so at the beginning of EVERY day you have to be the thing that pulls you up. When you wake up, don't let your mind automatically go to all the things you have to do that day: focus in on yourself and have a morning routine that allows you to prepare for the world in the best, most positive way possible: then go attack it and get things done!
Realize Everything Isn't Equally Important
next realize that although there are so many things for you to do in a day (especially if you wear lots of hats like I do), you can't stress yourself out by worrying about all of them as if they're all equally important. Prioritize your day! Realize that there are some things that are important to others, some things are important to you, and some things that are important to your future. Organize things that way (or in whatever way you find best) and you'll find you’re much less stressed and able to focus on accomplishing tasks one at a time, and doing them well. No, tomorrow isn't a guarantee but you have to do what you can now and let the next ‘now’ come when it comes.
Do Your Best and Let The Results Speak for Themselves
As much as you want to be in control of everything you do and everything that happens to you you're just not. The quicker you realize that the easier it will be for you to move forward in confidence, knowing that you're doing your best and that's all you can do. All you can do is take each day in stride, being positive and motivated and pushing for success in all the areas of your life; after that, you can't get caught up in worrying about the rest.
It’s not going to be easy, and it’s not even going to get you instant results. But I can promise you that taking these steps day by day and improving your outlook on life WILL help you reach your goals in a significant way.
