Dont Forget to Dress Your Mind~~~Susie Austin

Success is failure turned inside out,

The silver tint of clouds of doubt.

And you never can tell how close you are,

It may be near when it seems so far.

So stick to the fight when

You are hardest hit.

It’s when things seem worse,

That you must not quit. Unknown

Today we continue to look to our inside selves and maybe take a little inventory as to who we are and what we want to accomplish. Are there projects or goals unfinished for the year? Are you feeling as well as you should inside as well as outside? With the holiday season approaching so can the stress that often comes with it.  How do we deal with this?

If you are like most people they take it as it comes. I am suggesting you prepare your mind as well you prepare your body.

Every day we prepare our bodies, for some it takes longer than others. Deciding what to wear, applying makeup, fixing hair, the list goes on but what do you do to prepare or ready your mind? Begin by concentrating on the good and positive moments from the day before and focus on positive energy. Play favorite motivating music, tape a favorite quote to your bathroom mirror. One of my favorites is A Conscious Decision, which has been taped to my computer monitor for years.

(Please read September 20, 2007 in this blog archive for more on a conscious decision.)

You will be amazed at how little things help you become motivated and positive for the day ahead.

I also suggest preparing for an important day ahead by using “visualization” If you have an important event such as a job interview, meeting with a client, an important project or a test; use this as a tool to help you. For example if you are giving a presentation or a speech, imagine everyone in the room smiling and enjoying everything that comes out of your mouth. If in an interview preplay the questions and answer them with confidence and possibly invent questions to ask the interviewer. Continue with this until the end in this case the interviewer would offer you the job. Of course challenges will occur along the way but this is one way to be a bit more prepared and motivated to face with courage what challenge you may have this day.

Find what motivates you and never give up regardless how things seem at the time as you never know how close you are! Tomorrow your world may be totally different than today!

Rejoice and be thankful if your life is where you want it to be. If it is not make positive changes to begin the journey to a happier and more fulfilling existance.
