dsc_8060-copy

I want to try something new.

This year I have committed to writing down my goals daily in the AM and PM.

I have also written down all my general goals for 2018 in the areas of personal, health and finance.

I have committed to starting a vision board and to continuously update it.

I have written down how I want 2018 to look and feel, as well as my top priority for this year.

It’s seriously time to move!

It’s time to go out and change!

It’s time to go out and hustle!

I hope you all have a productive and successful new year.

Below is a list of a few questions I took the time to answer for myself. These might help you or someone else.

Motivation

FullSizeRender(1)

Everyone has moments in life where you just feel like giving up or not wanting to move forward. When we get in that funk, it is very important to do everything possible to quickly get out of it. Why? Because life is too short and beautiful to take for granted.

I will admit I’ve had my fair share of low moments, but I will quickly block the negative by thinking of all the positive in my life. I am healthy and alive; there are many people who are sick or have some physical limitations. That gets me thinking “Alondra, you have no illness, you have all of your limbs, you have a wonderful family, a place to sleep and a career you love.”

We live in a world that give the focus and spotlight to negativity, don’t believe me, just watch the news or go on social media. We see this daily 24/7 so we think it is OK to think negative about everything and everyone. We as a culture need to change, and start promoting positive actions and by doing so we will change the way we think and act. That in turn will help change your life.

When I cross paths with someone I smile and say hello, because you never know when that free yet simple smile will help brighten up someone’s day. Smiling also makes you feel happier. Another thing I do is I listen to motivation podcasts, because sometimes you have to hear it from someone that you are valuable and are capable of achieving anything. Books are another one of my favorite sources of staying inspired and motivated. There is so much information out there to learn from! So many different topics, so I encourage you to pick up a book and read 5 minutes or a few pages per day and you will see a difference, plus you will develop a positive habit (reading). Hobby’s are another great way to get creative and they are a wonderful way to relive some stress. Go hike, spend some time surround by nature.

Those are just a few ways that help me stay inspired. You might have other forms, but just remember that the best way to stay inspired, motivated and happy is to live life to the fullest in the most positive direction you can.

Be Patient

Be Patient….

We live in a world where we expect everything to happen or to be given to us instantly in this “microwave society”. We want it fast and with very little effort, but that is not how it works. Take the above snail, it has a destination it wants to get to. The snail can only move so fast and it knows it, so all the snail can do is be patient and keep moving forward inch by inch.

The best things in life are achieved by working hard in the direction of your goals/passion.  Everything you are working for will be awarded at its due time, so learn to be patient. Remember its not about the destination, its about the journey getting to your destination.

Don’t worry about the successes or achievements of others around you, use that as  motivation and continue to work toward your goals. Be patient, focus and get to work!

Have a great week everyone!
