Since I have left my job I have thought a lot about the power of our minds.
I have been reading many motivational books not only this year but throughout my life. No matter who wrote the book, or how old it is, they all have one thing in common:
Your success is down to your mindset. You subconscious reacts to what your consciousness feeds it. If you concentrate on your failures you fail. If you concentrate on your strengths and successes you will succeed.
Maybe that is the reason why this Monday Morning Blog Party has become so important to me: To set my mind on celebrating what I have achieved at the beginning of the week, sets me up for believing I can achieve what I have set out to achieve throughout the whole week.
But I think the secret lies in accepting who we are exactly the way we are. We only achieve things if we know our strengths, but also those things we have not mastered yet. Neither is good nor bad in my opinion. The question is: How do you deal with both? Do you allow yourself to learn what you need to learn to master a skill you have not mastered yet, or do you give up and say: I can’t do it?
What Emilia over at My Inner MishMash said the first time she took part expresses this in a way: Are we willing to celebrate the good things in our lives or do we want to concentrate on what we do not like:
“…and I agree with Bee that we do need to celebrate our lives, and that we – as people, but particularly in my opinion, we as people struggling with all kinds of mental illnesses, should think about celebrating more often – we think so often about how we hate our lives so that I feel like we often just forget to think about how much is there to celebrate…”
Therefore, I invite you to celebrate your life and your achievements with anything you feel you like to celebrate it with: put some extra make-up on, chose your favourite jumper, have an extra cup of tea, coffee, a glass of wine, sing a song… You’ll find something I am sure 🙂 .
Just allow yourself to celebrate the good things but also to find a better way for what you do not like yet.
I also invite you to write a post about your celebration and to add a song that motivates you to master something no matter how much you are scared or how tired you are. Leave the link here and all can come and visit and I add a shout-out post to the mix. The suggestions on how to take part are as follows:
- I invite you to celebrate your life and your work
- Do it in any way you like: cup of extra nice coffee, bake a cake, dance, sing or even have a party
- Write a post about it
- Add a song either with a video or a link to the song that makes you master “it” no matter what “it” is (add the lyrics if you want to)
- Leave your link here in the comments and I visit and post a shout-out-post on “The Bee Writes…”
- Party-End is Wednesday 27th of June 2018, 2.56 pm GMT (Time Converter)
- Come on bloggers let’s party!
I can’t wait to celebrate with you!
