Have you ever had one of those weeks where you were like when will this week every end? I think we have all experience weeks like this; you feel like everything that could possibly go wrong in your life is being thrown at you and you feel like I have no energy or time for this. Some of us take weeks like this and just deal with it, while others take weeks such as this and completely shut down and let it ruin weeks to come. So how do I deal with weeks like this? Believe or not I used to completely shut down from the world and just sit in my sorrow. But what good does that do……..do we really accomplish anything from doing that? Do we get closer to our goals by sobbing? Do we conquer our fears and challenges by wallowing in our disappointment or sadness? NO, NO and NO. We don’t accomplish anything when we just completely shut down. We don’t conquer our fears and challenges by just sitting in our safe box (complacency), our comfort area. We don’t solve problems by eating our way out of them. What do we do? We get out of our complacency box, our comfort zone, our fearful box and we tackle it.
So this is how I deal with days, weeks, months or even a year of disappointments or struggles:
I have learned from friends and acquaintances that life happens but how you approach it or deal with it is what makes you HAPPEN (did you catch that) How do you overcome battles? You SHAKE IT OFF and you stand straight up and tackle that battle.
You have gone through that struggle or that bad week so what do you do now? You REFOCUS yourself, your goals and your life. I purposely have vision boards everywhere in places where I can see them. I place them around my house so that I can purposely see them each day to allow myself to REFOCUS to remember my goals, aspirations and my WHY (why do I do what I do each and everyday) Nothing will get accomplish if we always stay in the same mindset.
You learn from that struggle, battle or disappointment. What makes you stronger is not always how you deal with situations but how you learn from them so that the next time you are face with a similar situation you know how to handle it. So MAKE A PLAN OF ATTACk of how you can refrain from that situation or how you can handle it if it every happens again.
Now that you took time to SHAKE IT OFF, you REFOCUS yourself, MADE A PLAN now it is time to ATTACK. Attack your day with the attitude that whatever may come your way today YOU are ready to take it own full force. Attack your day with the attitude of gratitude of becoming a Better You, A Stronger You, A FEARLESS You.
So if you ask me today how do I get through a bad week? I will tell you this……I shake it off, refocus myself, make a plan of attack and then I simply just ATTACK. Always remember each day is a new day, new goal, new mindset and A BETTER YOU!
With love and A BETTER YOU!
