You guys. I’m so excited to have Brianna back on the blog again! This week is all about creating a better life for yourself so you are able to wake up energized for what’s to come. First I knocked it off with recipes that won’t fix you feel like you’re missing out, then I talked about creating a healthy relationship with usage so you are able to stick with it longterm, then today Brianna is going to talk about squandering your resources to create the best life for yourself, day after day! Bri is one of my favorite parties to chit-chat with because she ever cures articulate things in view. And something that seems so complicated, she will ever help testify you that when you end it all down, it’s quite simple. I hope you enjoy this berth as much as I do and don’t forget to check out The School of Betty to help you lord your life, every damn day !! You’re going to cherished her!
Hi you beautiful beings! Ahhhh, it’s extremely pleased to be back on PaleOMG! Juli is one of my most favorite people and she is a honey, dear mind to me. This time last year I was here chitchatting about MOOLAH. I debunked some common reflects we have about coin and gave you 5 actions to create a badass liaison with that green stuff. You can predict that commodity here.
For those who don’t know me, I’m Bri the founder of The School of Betty! I help women surmount their fund, occasion and power( your resources) so they can abridged their stress and live a badass life. I made this firm after paying off over $30 k in debit card obligation and doing several years of no supermarket which led me to some big ah-ha’s about prosperity and facilitated me recall just how much impact our resources have on our daily lives.
You find, we use fund, occasion and force every.single.day. That is probably not news to you…it’s not rocket science. Although sometimes it seems like it. What do I represent? We know we use these resources, but we don’t often understand how they connect to our goals and being that it is the New Year, I figured this was the excellent time to connect some dots for you because if you know how the dots connect, “youre gonna have to” put together for success.
My motto: simple-minded actions done consistently will have an improbably, powerful impact on their own lives. So before “theres going” ham and create a huge new year’s resolution that you might give up on, I want you to understand these three things that concern your fund, era and power because knowing them will make all the difference for your life and your goals.
# 1. TIME AND ENERGY ARE JUST AS VALUABLE AS MONEY Is there such a thing as having a spend trouble with your time and vitality? Uh, blaze yes. It’s called not having frontiers and it gets us into a lot of agitate! Here’s the thing that most of us don’t attaches great importance to( or perhaps are ignoring ), there is no limit to how much fund we can receive, but there is a limit to our time and our exertion and regrettably those are the two we deplete like they will always be there. We can’t get more than 24 hours in a daytime or 365 daylights in a year and because of the first statute of thermodynamics, power can neither be created or destroyed. So what does this aim? We need to be really good at administering our time and our vitality love because they are treasured resources. If you hear yourself saying, “There aren’t enough hours in the day” or “I’m always tired”- this missile is for you( chortling in my brain because this sounds like a budweiser commercial-grade ).
How do we get better at managing these two resources? We form borderlines. Frontiers are your friends. Want a real easy one? When deciding what to do with your time and force, if it isn’t a hell YES…then it’s a blaze NO! Too, believe it or not, “no” IS a terminated decision!
# 2. YOUR GOALS= NEW HABITS& BEHAVIORS Our brains use a lot of energy and so they are constantly thinking of ways to go on autopilot to keep this energy. AND, because we know vitality is a limited resource, this is a great thing! Imagine if “youve been” had to think about each step needed to be brush your teeth or start your car…right? Holy balls! Our abilities are crazy complex and keep us alive, BUT…here’s the kicker…your brain can’t say to you if the pattern it creates is good or bad, it exactly recollects redundancy. That signifies when you do something enough times, your ability locks it in as a wont. Are you examining this? Can we get an amen for how hard it is to go back to the CrossFit gym after being out for a few weeks or two? Uh, yeah. And it’s even harder because your intelligence is of the view that NOT going was the brand-new normal. So when you are starting something better( ie a New Year’s solving ), it means you are has undertaken to new practices and behaviors and those brand-new ones are perhaps the opposite of your current ones. This PLUS your mentality is going to do everything it can to get you back to your age-old decoration because that is EASY (… and it doesn’t know that dinosaurs “re no longer” security threats to your life, so you don’t need to conserve that exertion to run on foot ).
So when you are creating your goals, it’s important to understand what you are doing NOW. Why? Because it tells us the pattern and when we know the pattern, it’s easier to create a new attire. I’m gonna really streamline this, but here’s a explosion of the attire loop 😛 TAGEND
A prompt or clue happens and your mentality says, “Ah! The cue! I’m supposed to do XXX”- Like, it’s desolate out( cue) today, I involve a Starbucks. Then you do XXX, which is the behavior- Depart to Starbucks Once you do the behaviour, you receive the remuneration- You imbibe your latte
Most mortals try to change EVERYTHING when starting something new, but here’s a bit dres hacker: The easiest lane to create a new attire, to alter the behaviour!( Grim daylight= adding special half and half to your chocolate at home= boozes magnificent chocolate ). Get it?
# 3. PERFECTION IS THE ENEMY, PROGRESS IS QUEEN Ya’ll, we’re really ambitious which means we exaggerate what we can actually accomplish and this is usually because we aren’t taking into account that our new destination means we just committed ourselves to new dress and actions. So going from devouring out 7 days a week to cooking at home 7 days a week is mostly a ended revamp of your date to daytime life…that’s no tiny stunt. And most of us appraise our success on our promises , not our actual progress. So now we have a crazy ass goal and bonkers promises and you know what? It’s a recipe for quitting. Why? Because we didn’t give ourselves a realistic goal and we didn’t assess our success on our progress. If we didn’t do it perfectly we give up. WHAT !? This kills me. We reach so much progress every day in our lives and we don’t celebrate it. And sidekick, we HAVE to celebrate those milestones. That is what gives you the motivation to keep going! Let’s gave this into position: if you had to walk a combined total of 1 mile in a week and day one you could only walk for five minutes … isn’t that more than zero? Babies don’t give up when they are fall down when they learn to tread do they?( Insert baby sayin, “you know what…that 1 pace wasn’t worth it…I’m done here.”) Nope.
If this sounds like you, there is one route you can remove the pressure of the goal that will help you stay on track and celebrate your progress: set an intention. If your goal is to workout more, your intent could be to move your figure up to 2 days a week in a way that brought you glee. Well…that chimes lovely. I gamble if you did that 1 or 3 daylights that week you’d be STOKED!
My friend, knowing these 3 nuggets will position you up for success in any area of their own lives. Too often in January we start over without acknowledging how far we’ve come. It’s much easier to continue a project that is half-way finished instead of starting a brand-new one from scratch, don’t you concur?
To send you on your course, I’ve grouped together 5 more activities for your life that, yes, are so simple you are going to assume they won’t work…until you try them for a few weeks( If you’ve done my 5 coin acts, you already know how potent these simple plays can be when you do them consistently ). You can also join me for a FREE 5 daytime challenge starting today( January 3 ), where I will saunter with you to kick some booty on your goals this month!
Ready? Let’s Grab Life by the Betties shall we?
