What Procrastinators and Achievement Addicts have in common

What do Procrastinators and Achievement Addicts have in common?

 

#upliftmylifetoday #iamenough

 

They’re not consistently feeling energized or present or confident as they show up in their lives: being who they are and doing what they’re doing. Instead, often they feel overwhelmed; many times scattered and uptight.

They feel somehow “constipated” in their efforts to unleash the potential they know they have within.

In different areas of their lives, one can be a procrastinator or an achievement addict.

Their behaviours are driven by the belief that “they are not enough as they are.” Enough for what? Enough to be accepted, acknowledged, and loved.

Does this speak to you?

If there is only one thing you can do to change this is to TRANSFORM your BELIEFS. As you do so, your subconscious mind works for what you desire, not against it.

Beliefs are the seeds of life. They grow to become gardens. Plant uplifting beliefs for your life’s garden, blossoming with inner peace, contentment, and a sense of purpose.

 

 

Choice leads to destiny

Entering winter, a period of reflection and rejuvenation…

 

What choices have you made so far in 2018?

How far have you grown? 

How have you contributed?

What fulfills you?

 

What do you desire to invite more into your life in the next cycle, in 2019?

What do you wish to let go of?

 

Imagine it, feel it, taste it. Repeat. Repeat.

 

All of it starts with taking action, one at a time.

It is all about your choice.

I am enough

 

 

What is your ritual to start your day?

Yes, your day, the one that you can not retrieve back once it passes.

 

Mine is simple and energizing.

I start my day with a meditation and prayer, followed by setting an intention for it. I decide what my life that day is going to be about and I choose how I’d feel about it.  I then fuel it with an affirmation that supports and uplifts it.

One that always does it for me is: “I am enough”.

Nooo, my day is not always free of stress. Not at all.

Life brings all kinds of things into my day, just like yours. Some days bring more than others. I accept that this is a part of my life, since I invite continuous learnings into it. Learnings do come on daily basis. It goes up and down, and up and down.

 

How this affirmation helps me is to remind myself that who I am and what I do at one point of time is the best that I can be and do at that particular moment. It dissipates self-judgement (yes, we tend to be the harshest judge towards ourselves, repeating the coulda, shoulda, woulda moments) significantly. It takes the illusionary pressure that we often put ourselves under.

 

During the day, I often take a few brief moments to take 3 deep breathes and I repeat these 3 powerful words to myself “I am enough, I am enough, I am enough”. It always gets me grounded and composed again. The best bit about it is that it takes only a couple of minutes to do so. Brief, sweet, powerful!

 

So, start your day with a clear intent and choose an affirmation that uplifts you. It makes a huge difference!

 

Now, share with us, what is your affirmation for your day today?

 

Have a fabulous day!
