Never Give Up on Yourself

Hey everyone! Welcome to this week’s blog post. Hope you enjoy and feel inspired!

Hi guys! How was y’all’s week? In this blog post, I am going to be talking about why you should never give up on yourself! This is basically a part 2 from last week’s post where I explained why you should never give up on your goals! If you haven’t read that post, go read it after you read this one! Make sure to subscribe to my blog so you can receive emails every time I upload a new post. Enjoy!!

You Can!

Life is filled with moments where you think you aren’t good enough and that you can’t accomplish your goals and be your best self. There are going to be moments when you feel like you failed and the best thing to do is give up. Your mind will constantly tell you that you can’t do this and you won’t achieve this. Don’t listen.

Yes, you will have many setbacks and obstacles in life. Sometimes you will try your absolute hardest to do something, and you will still fail. You’ll try hard again. And still fail. Success is hard. But that doesn’t mean you just give up on yourself and stop believing in your abilities and talents. Instead, you use that as motivation. Motivation to keep on working hard, motivation to keep on trying, and motivation to keep on pushing yourself.

It does not matter if no one believes you can. All that matters is that YOU believe you can. If no one thinks you can do it, do it anyways. Refuse to give up on yourself, and then your goals won’t give up on you. You CAN and WILL do amazing things if you just believe in yourself! And remember, you are stronger than you think you are.

“The voice in the back of your head telling you that you can’t is a good liar.” -Unknown

I hope you enjoyed this week’s blog post! Reminder: No matter who gives up on you, don’t EVER give up on yourself. Have an amazing week and continue running up your mountain! See you next Sunday.

Never Give Up on Your Goals

Hey everyone! Welcome to this week’s blog post! Hope you enjoy and leave feeling inspired!

Hi guys! How was y’all’s week? My week was great but very tiring! In this week’s post, I am going to be explaining why you should NOT give up on your goals. Make sure to subscribe to my blog so you can receive emails every time I upload a new post. Enjoy!!

It’s a slow process but quitting WON’T speed it up.

Ok, so we’ve been in 2021 for almost 3 weeks. Those goals that you set in the beginning of the year may have already became a distant memory. You might have already pushed them to the back of your mind. You might have already given up on your goals. If that’s you, then keep on reading!

“Don’t give up. Great things take time.” -Anonymous

It can be VERY hard to want to keep on working to achieve your goals especially if you aren’t seeing any changes. But guess what. The goals you want to accomplish TAKE TIME! It may take weeks, months, or maybe even a year for you to accomplish your goal. But just because it will take time, does not mean you should give up on them! If you give up on your goals, then you will be right back to where you started.

It takes time to be where you want to be in life. It takes time to achieve your goals. It takes time to be your absolute best self. But nothing worth having ever comes easy. Never give up on your goals!

“Never give up on a goal just because of the time it will take to accomplish it. The time will pass anyways.” -Earl Nightingale

When you accomplish your goals, you will be SO PROUD of yourself for not giving up! All the hard work, sweat, studying, and waking up early will ALL be worth it! So, do your future self a favor and don’t give up on your goals!

Comment your Goals!

I hope you enjoyed this week’s post! I’ll see you next Sunday! Have a great week and continue running up your mountain.

How to Achieve a Positive Mindset

Hey everyone! Welcome to this week’s blog post. I hope you enjoy and leave feeling inspired!

Hi guys! I hope all of you had a great week. In this post, I am going to be sharing my top tips on achieving a positive mindset. It can be hard to be positive but with these tips, it can be easier! Make sure to subscribe to my blog to receive emails every time I upload a new post. Enjoy!!

My Tips

If you want to have a positive mindset, these tips are for you!

-Journaling

Write down all the good and what you are grateful for every day. This will help you realize that there is SO much good in your life and in the world. I try to do this every morning and it really helps me start my day with a positive mindset.

-Positive Self Talk

It is very important to make sure that the voice in your head is telling you positive things instead of negative! Instead of saying, “I can’t do this”, say, “I am not able to do this YET.” Saying that will help you realize that just because you aren’t able to do something today, doesn’t mean you won’t be able to do it tomorrow or the next day. Positive self talk= Positive Mindset

-Surround yourself with Positive People

Surround yourself with people who are positive and optimistic rather than negative! Be with people who bring you up rather than tear you down. By doing this, you’ll be around more positivity leading you to eventually be positive and have the right mindset!

-Understand that You Can’t Change your Circumstances

The only thing you can change in your life is how you react to your circumstances. Not everything will always go as planned or turn out how you wanted it to. Once you realize you have little control on what is happening, you’ll realize it is best to just be positive no matter what. It can be very hard to understand this, and it takes time, but once you learn this you’ll be so much happier and positive!

Comment ways you try to stay positive!

I hope these tips are helpful so that you can achieve a positive mindset. YOU can be positive no matter what you are going through. So next time, instead of choosing to be negative, choose positive! 🙂 You won’t regret it.

I hope you enjoyed this week’s blog post! See you next Sunday. Have an amazing week and continue running up your mountain!

Why Mindset is Everything

Hey everyone! Welcome to this week’s blog post! I hope you enjoy and leave feeling inspired.

Hi guys! How was your week? What are your 2021 resolutions? Literally can’t believe it is a new year! I can’t wait to start fresh and make this the best year yet. In this post, we are going to be talking about how mindset is EVERYTHING! Make sure to subscribe to my blog so you can receive emails every time I upload a new post. Enjoy!!

Postive vs. Negative

Mindset is all of your thoughts, ideas, and conceptions all jumbled together. All of those things contribute to how you view your life. So basically, positive thoughts = positive life.

People with a positive mindset typically end up being more successful and are able to achieve their goals easier. When obstacles come their way, they stay optimistic and hopeful.

When you have a negative mindset, it is usually harder to have a better perspective on life. It can be harder to achieve a successful life with a negative outlook because when something doesn’t go as planned, you quickly lose hope and give up.

It can be hard to look at the difficulties in life and still have an optimistic mindset. Hardships occur during your life and it is easier to focus on the bad rather than the good. It seems simpler to have a negative mindset. What if though, you have a negative mindset but you want a positive mindset?

Well then guess what? It’s YOUR MIND!! You are the only one who can change your thoughts and how you view certain things. Thoughts are very powerful and can determine your whole life. But at the end of the day, they are in your mind and you can change your mind.

So whenever you want to change your mindset, thoughts, and perspective to be more positive, just know that you CAN! Change your mindset to focus on the positive and good rather than the bad.

I hope you enjoyed this week’s blog post. Comment something positive 🙂

All About Goals

Hey everyone! Welcome to this week’s blog post. I hope you enjoy and leave feeling inspired!

Hi guys! I hope all of y’all had a great week and a merry Christmas <3. Who’s ready for the new year? 2021 here we come. In this post, we are going to be talking about goals. New year, new goals. Make sure to subscribe to my blog so you can receive emails every time I upload a new post. Enjoy!!

Goals

Goals. Goals provide us with a reason to work hard. Having goals makes it easier to stay focused and motivated on what you want to accomplish in your life.

It is easy to say that you want to accomplish this and that but it is harder to actually stay motivated and strive towards your goals.

EXAMPLE: On December 31st, you might say your goal for 2021 is to be the best version of yourself. In order to achieve that goal in the new year it’s going to take patience, hard work, and perseverance. You start off the year strong. Eating cleaner, journaling, meditating, and exercising becomes part of your daily routine. BUT, with time, you start to feel unmotivated and don’t want to continue working hard. Now, slacking off becomes part of your daily routine. Your 2021 goals quickly get pushed to the back of your mind. What happens now?

How to Keep your 2021 Goals

It is hard to achieve your new year’s resolutions but it can be easier. Here are some tips that will help you achieve your 2021 goals.

Having a planner helps so much! Writing and planning out your day helps you be more productive and get more things done. You can get planners at Walmart, Target or Amazon.

Maybe instead of setting a goal you want to accomplish when the year is over, set monthly goals. Every month have a new, little, and easier thing you can attain. Small goals can help you stay motivated.

REMEMBER WHY YOU WANT TO ACHIEVE YOUR GOAL! Think of how amazing your view will be. When you remember your why, your how will be so much easier.

Comment your 2021 New Year’s Resolutions

I hope you enjoyed this week’s blog post and feel very motivated. Have a great week and New Year’s Eve and Day! Continue running up your mountain! See you next week.
