Do you have fitness goals but find it difficult to stick with them or follow through with your fitness plans? Everyone needs a little inspiration from time to time and anytime I can relay good key points along to my readers, I love to take action so that my content can be of help to anyone who has dreams to keep alive.
Today I will be talking about how to keep your dreams alive and 5 key points to help you follow through with your dreams. Sometimes we may not even realize that we are letting our dreams slip to the wayside, but after much time has gone by, we realize that we have been putting too much effort on other daily tasks, we need to dig a little deeper and give our mind’s that little extra push.
This post will be all about building upon your mental perception of where you want to be, and building yourself with mental training, not thinking positive can make it impossible to achieve your goals, and we need to ease back on all the downfalls of negativity.
Positive affirmations are something that I have started getting into recently, if you have an opportunity to check into listening to positive affirmations every morning, I would suggest that you take advantage of this as often as you can because it is considerably helping me each and every day that I engage myself in it.
In today’s world it can become all too easy for our minds to get bogged down with all the daily pressures and let destructive thinking get in the way of our dreams and goals, but if we can keep our minds tuned into positives that can build us up and keep the momentum going in the right direction, we will have a great chance at succeeding with our fitness goals.
Included I have a link directing you to some options you can check into that will benefit you greatly with positive affirmations on fulfilling your fitness goals through positive thinking. These recordings are a great way to give your mind a positive boost anytime of the day.
First thing in the morning after getting out of bed is a great time to give your mind some positive feedback and before going to bed at night will fill your subconscious mind with positive thoughts.
Before going to bed and after getting up in the morning are a couple of key times in the day to build yourself up with positive affirmations but I suggest anytime of the day, especially when you are stressed is typically an ideal time.
Keep ideas fresh in your mind
I have talked in the past about the necessity in keeping your goals and plans for each day written down so that you can keep on top of what is most important to you on a day-to-day basis, but to highlight on what I have mentioned in the past, it can be a good idea to be creative when keeping important notes and goals written down.
Some people keep a notebook handy with their daily fitness goals, others keep Post-It notes to keep their goals fresh in their minds, but instead of keeping paper tacked up around your house or office, have you thought about using a whiteboard to keep your workouts and fitness goals logged?
Another idea is type up your goals and inspirational quotes on your mobile device and set it as a screensaver, this way your inspiration will be clearly printed with you everywhere you go throughout the day.
Meditation can be a great way to clear your mind and fill it with the positive thoughts necessary to find better meaning in your life. Two of the best times that you can use for meditation are first thing in the morning after you get up and before going to bed at night.
Meditation can not only be so beneficial for clearing your mind and filling it with positive vibrations, but it is also an excellent way to help achieve a relaxed state so that you can move on through your day completing your tasks in a more beneficial way and have more energy to complete the things in your day that are most important.
As I talked about earlier in using positive affirmations and the best time of day for doing this is when you can find some quiet, private time to concentrate on yourself and your thoughts, this is also important when following through a daily meditation routine.
When following a daily meditation routine, you will need to find some quiet time and a quiet place where you can put your mind in a high meditative mode so that you can concentrate all your thoughts on what you want to achieve and exactly how you plan on achieving these goals.
During your meditation you need to be clear and precise with your thoughts as to what you want to achieve and exactly what you will need to do to achieve this, and in order to completely put your mind, heart and soul into this, you will need to have a quiet place where you will have absolutely no distractions.
Surround yourself with positive thoughts
I have spoken before on the impact that positive thoughts can have on you, building true abundance and following through with your goals and achieving things that you never thought you would ever have been able to achieve.
I have heard spoken before by Zig Ziggler, “your mind can become a garbage dump” when you leave yourself susceptible to outside influence, but if you surround yourself with positive thoughts you can overcome negative thinking if you are persistent with it enough.
This is why it is always so necessary to surround yourself with people who think positive and their positive thoughts can rub off on you in a beneficial way.
Journal your accomplishments
This is another area I have talked about before is journaling your accomplishments. It is very important that we journal these accomplishments because if we don’t take the time to write these things down, it will be easy for us to forget about them.
These things that you journal don’t necessarily need to be just your accomplishments, it is necessary to keep a journal of your goals and what you plan on doing to achieve these goals.
If we don’t take the time to journal our thoughts, it will be much harder for us to follow through with them.
Many of these subjects I have covered today I have talked about in previous posts, but it is necessary to keep these things talked about repetitively because they can become easy things to overlook or brush off to the side and not stay focused on keeping them up front and center in our daily lives.
Zig Ziegler has stated that our mind is like a garbage dump, it is so easy for our minds especially in this day and age to become filled with so many negative things as this world is filled with so many negative influences that it can become difficult to stay positive.
If we can keep our minds filled with positive thoughts as much as possible, it will make it so much easier for us to move through each day successfully, staying positive and staying motivated to make the best of our lives and perform at our highest rate of efficiency.
Once we have built our minds up so that they can be highly functional to power us in a positive way through our days, then it is also necessary to feed ourselves the proper nutrients to physically power us through each day and give us the physical strength we need to empower us through our workouts.
This is where supplementation can be an important factor.
