In the Zone

I’m reading the book “Relentless” by Tim Grover, he states that the people that are the most relentless, unstoppable, the “cleaners” as he calls them, have a way to tap into their dark side. A way to get into “the Zone”.

He describes “The Zone” as “once you’re there, you have no fear, no worry, no emotion. You do what you come to do, and nothing can touch you”.

Does this sound like a space you’ve been in before? I know when I was rowing in college, I was able to get there. But while I was reading this, I was having a hard time thinking about it. Then I remembered.

Listening to “’till I collapse” gets me there. It unleashes my dark side and I do the things most people cannot. I get into the zone.

If you want to be a winner, you want to be unstoppable. Relentless. A cleaner. You have to figure out what gets you to that space. It could be a phrase, a song, a memory, anything. Find it and finish it.

My Ah-Ha

I’m reading this book called “The Motivation Manifesto” and it is actively changing the way I think and the way I am choosing to live my life.

I’ve realized reading this that I’ve peeled back a layer of vulnerability. I realized that one of biggest weaknesses is allowing my fear to rule my emotions. I speak on fear a lot, and there are a lot of things I’m scared to do, but I do them anyway.

What I have not realized is that even though I’m still fearful of these things and I keep doing them, that this fear is causing negative emotions in me still.

So this past week, as these fears and anxieties come up, I’ve been journaling about them. Writing about all the emotions I’ve had around it, memories that come up, situations I come up with, all of it.

And I’ve realized that once you face that fear, and you figure out where it’s coming from. You walk yourself through those emotions. That fear no longer controls you or your anxieties or the way you live your life.

So I challenge you this week to take something your afraid of and write everything about that your brain offers you. When you are done, sit back, take a deep breathe, and breathe out all those emotions . See how different you feel.

Zero Options Mentality

Have you’ve ever decided to do something and say “I’m going to give this a try but if it doesn’t work out, it’s fine”? But the thing you’re saying this about is actually something you really want?

It’s weird how we do that, isn’t it?

By saying this, we are already going into it thinking we are going to fail. Giving yourself the permission to fail.

What if. WHAT IF, you enter something with a zero options mentality? What if you go into it thinking and failing is NOT AN OPTION?

How different would your life look like? What things would you have done, completed, succeeded in, if you went in knowing that no matter what it took, you were finishing it?

Curious, isn’t it?

If there is something you want so bad it set a fire in your soul, go after it with a zero options mentality. You have NO OTHER OPTION besides seeing this thing through.

That’s how champions are made. That’s how winners keep winning.

WAKE UP: It’s September

We all know what Green Day says, “Wake me up when September ends”… It’s been on all of our playlists for YEARS.

HOWEVER, I know you all slept through the summer. So it’s time to WAKE THE F**K UP!

I’m not kidding you all. Get off your asses and get to fricken WORK!!!! We have been pressing the SNOOZE BUTTON for TOO FRICKEN LONG. Blame the pandemic, society, politics, whatever you want, I don’t give a flying rats.

It’s time to get to work. Pick up a nonfiction book, a journal, and some weights. Cut out the sugar, cut out the alcohol, and focus.

Do it like your life depends on it. Because guess what? IT DOES.

Do you want to die a the age of 50 alone and sick because you were too stubborn to work on you physical and mental health?

Didn’t think so.

Come to the light and lets’ do the damn thing.

A Beginner’s Guide to Self-Love

I remember it so clearly. Being in a relationship, my whole life being tied to this one guy. When that ended in shambles, my whole world fell apart with it.

And this happened for several relationships.

Why? Because I tied my self-worth into someone else’s view of me. Not my own.

When I started to actually work on my self worth and having self-love, my whole world changed. I no longer sought validation in others but rather sought validation in myself.

If you are new to this world, that is okay. Below are a few tips to get you started towards independence, self-love, and self worth.

  1. Daily Affirmations- say it, write it, do it daily.
  2. Unfollow people on social media that do not make you feel good
  3. Follow others on social media that are uplifting and do actually make you feel good
  4. Read Personal Development- pick up that dang book girl
  5. Do something nice for yourself, whatever this means to you
  6. Daily Gratitude- I recommend writing 5 things down everyday, small things
  7. Forgive yourself
  8. Accept where you are now
  9. Stop comparing yourself to others
  10. Write a love and warming letter to yourself

Hope this helps ❤ What are some things you have used to help practice self-love?
