It`s two weeks post competition. The reality is I am struggling to find balance between structure and the disarray of everyday life. My diet and exercise is not as on point as it was, leading up to the competition. My body is changing, my mood is changing. And I feel a bit out of control.The one constant in my life is my daily workouts. Some sessions are better than others, but I am consistent. So, how do you navigate through the negative stuff in your head and plan for your future achievements? When you are preparing for a special event you are focused and devoted to the process. Upon completion of the task your position is transposed. So the question is, how do you calibrate your mind set to refocus on a new endeavour?
First, you give yourself permission to sit back and take a breather. Then, you remind yourself in order to thrive as an individual. One must cultivate a purposeful approach to ones dreams. Growth isn’t uninterrupted. Relapses happen. Recognize that all your previous progress is not erased. Approach each obstacle as a lesson to better equipped yourself with an arsenal of powerful affirmations. Be your own ally. Perseverance is the key to success. What sometimes seems impossible will one day be your warm up. Everyday each experience and every situation gives you a chance to start over. Reevaluate your aspirations and set new goals. Explore the endless opportunities you desire to pursue. Remember, why you started this journey. Live a life you love and cherish completely. At some point, you just have to let go of what you thought should happen. And live in the happening moments. Wake up with passion, purpose and intent to be a better person than you were the day before. Be you. Do you. For you.
