Hi Team...

I hope the first week back in the swing of things was a good, highly productive one for you!

As we wrap the week, I wanted to share 3-Daily Habits that can alter your life in an amazing way....

HABIT #1: ENCOURAGE YOURSELF

Yup. I would love for you to be more aware of how you speak to yourself in various moments throughout the day...

Be very aware of your language....

Using sayings like:

"I can't"....

"I will"....

"I have to ___________ (figure it out, do that, get that done, work on that)"

"I wish I had____________"

Although these are self-bashing words and sayings, they are coming from a place of lack, scarcity, and illustrate that you are not currently in a state of fulfillment.

You see, most of us do not realize the negative impact of the above. We write them off as an extension of our TO-DO list or GOALS.

Not true.

These are very dangerous and toxic sayings to growth and self-satisfaction/ confidence.

HABIT #2: ENCOURAGE OTHERS

As we go through our day, it is really easy to recognize the "things" and "people" that piss us off.

Yup.

Some days they seem to be everywhere.

But, that is not true.

Most of this frustration is actually coming from you.. allowing these others to get you nuts, but really it stems from your own frustration about how you see and feel about yourself. 

It is more of a YOU problem than a THEM problem. 

So, how do we combat this? Simple.

WE make a commitment to make at least one person feel good per day.

Yup.

Very hard for some. Well, most.

You are really going to have to practice this one. Realize this though, every person you make feel good about themselves, you are getting the return on that energy and it is actually helping to make you stronger, more confident, and more blessed in all that you do.

HABIT #3: STAND TALL

Coach, what does standing tall have to do with me having a great day?Simple.

Your posture and physiology are directly related to your overall state of being.

If you are in a bad standing or sitting posture, your words and thoughts often match.

Remember, in a addition to Coaching Mental Performance, my background is as on on-field physical Performance Coach and Rehabilitative Specialist.

Training the body can fix the mind, while at the same time, training the mind can fix the body.

They are directly related and in constant balance- until we mess that balance up.

Catch your postures.

Catch your postures after certain meetings, conversations, and interactions. Are you naturally tall with the good meetings? Slumping after bad news? Also, be aware of your breathing as well. Tall posture often means better, deeper, consistent respiratory patterns.

Breath is powerful. Use your breath as a reminder to stand tall. When you are slouched your breathing will naturally be inhibited- this can lead to fatigue, brain fog, and stress. ( a behind the scenes culprit)....

Now, go put these 3-Habits in Play and SHARE them with a friend.....

Remember the ENCOURAGE OTHERS?

That can start by sharing!

Let's GO!

Your Coach,
