Happy Monday! You have the CHOICE to make today whether to have a good day or a bad day? Which will it be? Struggling with the Monday morning blues? Let’s shift your mindset so you can change the way the day or week will go….
One of my goals every day is to show up in my life – in my relationships, my work, my finances, and with my health. Am I always successful? NO! Do I keep trying? YES! Why? Because when I continue to show up reflecting who I want to be, I begin to see changes in my life making it easier to reach my goals.
What is challenging for you right now? Is it work? Your marriage/ relationships? Finances? What if you could change the intent to see if it changes the situation. Pick one area of your life you would like to see a change.
For example, if work is challenging for you right now, you could set an intention for how you want to show up at work:
“My intention is to maintain my calm and peace in the midst of the storm going on at work.”
“My intention is to keep making calls to customers despite the answering machines or negative attitude some may have”
A simple change in your mindset will help you change your response when things get frustrating during the day. Not sure you will remember your intention? I know it is hard when you are in the moment of chaos. How about setting a reminder on your phone (hourly, multiple times, whatever) to remind you of your intention? Know you are going to be in a stressful situation, set the reminder for about 15 minutes BEFORE the meeting or event to take you mind from the negative to the positive. I do this on days when I am struggling with depression, it helps to clear my head of Negative Nellie and Doubtful Debbie.
Changing your intention will also change the way others respond to you. Changing your intention will change how situations unfold. The best part is changing your intention is it will allow opportunities to find you. You will be feeding the Universe with your positive energy. Positive attracts positive, right?
What is your intention for this week? What would happen if the best version of you showed up all week, you know the one you are proud of?
Imagine for a moment what it would look like to show up as your most powerful, authentic self in whatever situation you are struggling with…. what would change?
