Starting off your week on the right foot sets the tone for the rest of the week. Too many times have you allowed your week to get ruined by “Negative Nancy.” The buck stops right here, right now.
Here are 3 simple ways to start off every week like a Wimp.
#MambaMentality, simply put, is doing whatever it takes to be the best version of yourself. Framing your Mondays like the late, great Kobe Bean Bryant, will have you ready to tackle the hardest parts of your week, day, and even workouts.
That’s how you START.
Too many times just the start of something can weigh us down. This small shift in your mindset can have a huge impact on your entire life. Soon you will love the process, Mondays will be easier, and you’ll set yourself up to have a great week.
Yes we, including me, are all guilty of being Chicken Little on occasion. Guess what? You made it to the other side and we should all be thankful for that. So take a second to congratulate yourself on making it to another week.
What will be different from the past? I’m glad you asked.
YOU are not just going to eliminate negative vocabulary but YOU are also going to replace them with positive words. By only using positive words you are putting out positive vibes into the universe. There are many books that have that same basis, but I recommend The Secret by Rhonda Byrne. I won’t spoil the book, but it’s amazing how much your life can change by not using words like “can’t” and “not.”
3.Having a Growth Mindset
Having a growth mindset is similar to thinking positive, but this is more about how you view yourself. By saying that you have a growth mindset, you are saying that you may not be where you want to be in life. But if you work smart, you will be there.
Let’s say you deem it worth the risk to get back to lifting what you were able to do before the 2 month quarantine. Instead of saying “I’m weak” or “Why am I struggling so much?”, you could say “I will get stronger and better than I was before with (the plan to get you there.)
Don’t allow 6 seconds to dictate how your day was.
Yes I know how irritating people can be. Especially that one guy who thinks that you’re friends because y’all always see each other around the gym.
But is that quick interaction worth blowing your whole mood? Instead, breathe and recapture that mindframe you had LITERALLY seconds before.
Many times it’s not just one altercation that makes our day turn sour. On the contrary, it is the build up of agitations that gets us to that breaking point. Just remember that you can always count the number of times you were inconvenienced, but you gloss over the things that you did right.
FYI, the good always outweighs the bad.
