I’ve been home for just over a day now. I had a class yesterday that I was thoroughly unprepared for since I haven’t been able to attend, so I have a heap to catch up on this weekend.
The jet lag hit me yesterday afternoon like a ton of bricks, and it was a real battle not to fall asleep on top of my homework. I’m now tired and rundown, complete with persistent dry cough and a coldsore (gross).
Dreams don’t come for free though, and I don’t have time to be sick. I have a 14 hour shift today at Job No. 2, study, and a business idea to crack on with. My empire awaits… LET’S DO THIS!
Monday’s motivational shout out goes out to all the soldiers grinding away on this Christmas Day. Emergency and medical staff, hospitality staff, mothers, fathers, grandparents, and so many more.
These people grind away, day in and day out, no matter what day it is. These are the true grinders worth recognising today!
I hope you all have a fantastic Christmas Day, no matter what you’re doing!
The gold is way down below, further down than you thought you could ever dig.
When you push yourself to the very edges of your comfort zone, or where you ever thought you could possibly get to. That’s when you find out what you’re made of, that you are capable of so much more than you thought, and find your own personal brand of magic.
So dig deep, dig all the way to the bottom, and then dig some more.
I know my answer is yes.
Some think their answer to this question is a yes, but when the grind really gets going, they start to backpeddle.
This concept got me thinking today, because I have been soo incredibly guilty of this in the past, and yet right now I find myself in the middle of my busiest time of year, working from before sunrise to after sunset, half out of my mind, teetering on the edge of madness because I’m so tired, and I still know I don’t want to quit. If anything I want more… I just have to figure out how to make that happen.
I know, I know, it doesn’t sound very “healthy”…. You know what else isn’t healthy? Hating your life and where you find yourself, feeling the despair well up in you because you’re sitting in the middle of another social gathering you feel obliged to attend, trying to stop yourself thinking about how unhappy you are with where you life is, and how much work it’s going to take to turn it all around. At least I’m moving forward.
As painfully slow as I feel the progress is, I feel that it is in fact progress, and that I am moving in the right direction, at least for now.
So yes, I can in fact say that I do want it. I am 100% thirsty for success. What’s your answer? What do you want?
Have a fantastic and successful day today!
Another big day working from sun-up til sun-down! Although thankfully not as late as the night before…
It’s something I’ve just always had the capacity to do, work long hours. As long as I have confidence in what I’m happy to keep chipping away at what I’m doing until it’s done. It’s where I don’t have confidence in what I’m doing that it all falls apart and my anxiety kicks in… It’s useful, but only in combination with having something productive to do!
I feel like a lot of people struggle with this confidence and and anxiety issue… competence breeds confidence, and the best way to be competent is to keep doing what you’re doing until you’re good at it, or you’ve achieved what you set out to do!
I hope you’re smashing your day today!
The weather has frankly, been amazing this past week, and yesterday was no exception. So combine the gorgeous weather with a live band playing in the sunshine on this particular gorgeous Friday afternoon outside my office, and you can imagine I had to dig deep for the motivation to stay inside and work!
I’m also working some very big hours this weekend, so that left my Friday night to get anything I wanted done around the house out of the way. That meant yard work, packing and labelling a bunch of old things that I recently sold online to ship, and all house chores and actually making sure I have clean clothes to wear for the next week!
Needless to say my pizza tasted pretty delicious when it arrived for dinner…
I hope you’re having an amazing day, and feeling motivated to smash your goals today!
Days where I’m working at two jobs are always big days, and yesterday was no exception, so I was in grind mode up until in I got home at 11 pm for a cuddle with the furball and a few minutes of banter with my partner before collapsing into bed.
I hope your squeezing every second out of your day and loving it!
