UResteem-Day 21

Reset Your Thinking Day 21 – UrEsteem

“Confront the dark parts of yourself, and work to banish them with illumination and forgiveness. Your willingness to wrestle with your demons will cause your angels to sing.” ― August Wilson

ResetLow self-esteem is a negative evaluation of oneself. This type of evaluation usually occurs when some circumstance we encounter in our life touches on our sensitivities. We personalize the incident and experience physical, emotional, and cognitive arousal. This is so alarming and confusing that we respond by acting in a self-defeating or self-destructive manner. When that happens, our actions tend to be automatic and impulse-driven; we feel upset or emotionally blocked; our thinking narrows; our self-care deteriorates; we lose our sense of self; we focus on being in control and become self-absorbed.

Self-esteem is not set in stone. Raising it is possible, but not easy. Ur self-esteem grows as you face your fears and learn from your experiences. You can start by doing these steps.

  • Practice self-care. Make new lifestyle choices by joining self-help groups and practicing positive health care.
  • Stop and take notice. Pay attention to the familiarity of the impulse. Our tendency is to overreact in the same way to the same incident. Awareness of the similarity can be the cue to slow our reactivity.
  • Choose response. Hold self-defeating impulses. Act in a self-caring and effective way. By choosing to act in a more functional way, we take a step toward facing our fears.

UrEsteem is the building up of your self. Begin today by practicing self care, pay attention to your impluses and choose carefully your response to every situtation. #ResetYourThinking #UrEsteem

Get Unstuck! – Day 20

Reset Your Thinking Day 20 – Get Unstuck!

“I need to find creative diversity because if I get stuck, I get unhappy.” –Jill Scott
ResetThe year has just begun do you feel you hit a plateau in life? Do you feel like you’re going through a phase that lacks significant progress? Are you still trying to figure out what to do with your life?

Some people refer to this as being “stuck in a rut.” I just call it stuck. And once identified, sometimes it’s a mystery how to get unstuck. Your lackluster outlook might have you encountering a sense of “blah” not happy or depressed just not content and craving something different. You might also feel exhausted, off-track, unmotivated or worried. All of those are normal experiences that you may not give much thought to when you’re at your best, but every once in a while these unwelcome little obstacles catch up and it’s a struggle to move forward. So what do you do to get unstuck?

My number one job as a Leader is supporting people as they move forward, primarily because they’re stuck, stuck in jobs, relationships, health and more.  So here are some ways to help you get out of a rut:

  1. Face your fears-  What exactly is stopping you from moving forward? 
  2. Define your goals – run a vision board workshop at the change of every season because one vision board per lifetime (or year, even) is never enough.
  3. Set a reward for breakthroughs –Determine short-term milestones and rewards. What are your turning points?

Once you apply these steps above you will have a sense of direction. Your will break significant barriers and become unstuck making new achievements. Take one step at a time.. to come out of the rut you’re in.  #StartByResettingYourThinking

Time Wasters-Day 19

Reset Your Thinking – Day 19 Time Wasters

Better three hours too soon than a minute too late.” –William Shakespeare

ResetDo you have a “time-waster,” of which you are guilty?  Mine is being on the Internet too long. I find that if I go online at the end of my workday or at least until I finish the most important tasks of the day, I am more productive and less likely to “wander” around in cyberspace.

Time is a very precious resource. The fact is that regardless of how well you manage time, at the end of a day, you will still only have had 24 hours. In one year there are still only 8,760 hours. The key is using your time efficiently and eliminating time wasters from your day. Your attitudes and behaviors affect how you use your time. Below are some examples of ineffective use of time. By substituting what’s not working for you with a more effective behavior and/or attitude you’re on the road to managing your time. You can start with..

  1. Less Interruptions/Distractions
  2. Organizing and planning your dayIm
  3. Implementing.. stop putting off things to do-procrastinator
  4. Being easy on yourself lighten up perfectionist
  5. Stop trying to do everything yourself
  6. Evaluating the task – take on as much as you can handle
  7. Having a crisis management plan in place
  8. Limiting your socializing (have a time frame)
  9. Retooling yourself if you’re lacking in skills

Time is of the essence, this is the time to be more productive, more efficient. Stop wasting time. Take the time to reflect, access and document how and where you’re wasting your time. #ResetYourThinking #StopWastingTime

So, You Need Approval? Day 18

Reset Your Thinking Day 18 – So You Need Approval?

“Courage, not compromise, brings the smile of God’s approval.” –Thomas S. Monson

AResetpproval is like a killer drug (it induce stupor or insensibility to your identity). You seeking approval becomes addictive and you quickly develop a need for more. When you have a need for approval you value the beliefs, opinions and needs of others above your own. Their opinion of you is far more important to you than your own view of yourself.

Receiving disapproval becomes a painful (heartbreaking) experience. Your entire decision-making processes are eventually taken over by your need for the approval of others. You cannot take any decisive action without their approval. You’ll sacrifice your own dreams and ambitions in order to have their approval, Why?  You may argue that you do not engage in approval seeking behaviour. However, there are common behaviors which you may fail to recognise as approval seeking. Do you?

  1. Change your position because someone appears to disapprove
  2. Paying insincere compliments to gain approval
  3. Feeling upset, worried, or insulted when someone disagrees with you
  4. Expressing agreement (verbally or non-verbally) when you do not agree
  5. Doing something which you do not want to do because you are afraid to say ‘No’Any

Behavior which is contrary to your identity and purpose, or conflicts with your core beliefs, is generally done to gain the approval of someone else.  One of  the easiest ways to avoid approval seeking is to live a life that is true to your own values and true to yourself. #ResetYourThinking

Old Pains Reopen Wounds – Day 17

Reset Your Thinking Day 17 – Old Pain Reopen Wounds

“Turn your wounds into wisdom.” ― Oprah Winfrey

ResetThat horrible pain that you are feeling right now will go away since time heals everything. Just keep that in mind and don’t beat yourself up if you still haven’t managed to get past your former relationship, even if you broke up with your partner quite some time ago or there was a disagreement between you and your closest friend, time still heals all wounds.

Sometimes it’s not so easy to walk away when that unfortunate event leaves some pretty nasty scars on your emotional well-being. Sometimes, love fades and there’s nothing you can do to change that. There’s no point in wondering obsessively about what happened, what you did wrong or what you could have done to prevent that because most of the time it’s nobody’s fault if you have outgrown your partner or that friend and these things just happen. It’s time to move on and leave the past behind. #ItsClosureTime

  1. Give yourself time will heal –give yourself enough time to heal
  2. Learn to forgive –him/her for what was said/done
  3. Write a letter –say everything you wanted to say to end the madness
  4. Have a symbolic ceremony –get rid of clothing, pics, delete texts SAY GOODBYE!
  5. Empty Chair –say what you wanted to say get it off your chest #unleash
  6. Don’t forget yourself –time to build self again #appreciationself #worthiness
  7. Apologize – for your wrong doing, then forgive yourself

Will Excuses Be Your Defeated Foe? Day 16

Reset Your Thinking Day 16 – Will Excuses Be Your Defeated Foe?

“Leadership is about taking responsibility, not making excuses.” – Mitt Romney
ResetThe Dangers of excuses..  excuses are devastating to marriages, businesses and relationships. Excuses will cause you to become self-focused and selfish.  Excuses cause you to lose sight of your purpose missing the mark for your life.  Excuses justify where you are complacency. Excuses validate mediocrity.. cause one to validate why they are broke, stagnated and not progressive in their life.

Excuses’s.. is beginning projects books, business, ministry with excitement and not finishing because of an excuse. Excuses champion a defeated outlook and mentality. Will excuses be YOUR DEFEATED FOE? The adversary is not to blame it simply one’s way of thinking. EXCUSE IS THE LANGUAGE OF VICTIMS. Are you still a victim of your circumstance?  Know this, the problem is not the pain of trial is not the trial itself. IT IS OUR RESPONSE. What will your response be today? Stop the excuses and respond to the situation at hand with an open mind.

Let today be the day.. you reflection write down what you have been avoiding. What you didn’t confront, what needs your attention, then pray, ask the Lord to guide you and give you ways to handle the situation gracefully. #ResetYourThinking #StopTheExcuses
