We all yearn to get more done in our day to day pursuits. The problem is it’s actually quite difficult to finish anything significant in our meager twenty four hour boundaries which we are presented with by life. The answer to this predicament lies in the idea of working on big projects over time. You must break the project down into small bite sized increments which you tackle on at a time day to day. By applying this method you unlock the ability to get much more done if you manage to keep your enthusiasm high in addition to focusing on what matters. Today I would like to share with you some methodology which I apply to complete projects in my own life. I will also reveal to you the recipes for crafting an ideal project.
I know I haven’t been posting many quality articles lately but that’s all about to change. I have been figuring things out in my life in order to best align myself for success but now I am back and ready for action! Today I would like to speak to you about the three attitudes which can be brought forth when completing any action. These three attitudes I am speaking of go as follows: Enthusiasm, Enjoyment, And finally Acceptance. Each one contains it’s own set of parameters which will vastly shift the outcome of the task at hand.
Routine is the key to success; A solid routine rests at the heart of every success story. By taking an introspective look into your daily routine you are granted the ability to accurately gauge if you will reach the success which you crave. A routine must be crafted with only the utmost productive and valuable activities. I understand that many of you are not looking for the same level of world class success which I am; some of you wish simply to “make it”. Regardless, the tips and ideas provided in this article will benefit you all the same.
Many of us search for motivation day in and day out. We stumble upon the spark of motivation and it gets us going, we continue to feed off of it until it dies out and then we are left with nothing; the motivation has faded and so yet again we search for the spark. If you are like most people you work harder when you are motivated, there is nothing wrong with this until you take a look at the bigger picture; Momentum will be built through your hard work. However, as soon as you lose motivation you will stop working hard, and your momentum will come grinding to a halt. This is why fluctuating motivation is not okay, it will stall your momentum and overall progress towards your dreams or goals. Today I would like to show you why I believe motivation is overrated.
Today is my birthday and I feel so blessed to be living the life I am; Everything is perfect and I am moving quickly in the direction which I want to travel. Sure there are things which I would like to change but everything happens for a reason and there is always a lesson to be learned in any situation big or small. This is why I take time to be grateful for all that I have. Taking time to be grateful will brighten your life up even if you are not physically changing anything. Telling yourself that you are grateful for the things you have will tell your brain that those things are valuable assets that should not be taken lightly. From then on you will view everything with a fresh perspective pumped full of awe and wonder. Today I would like to enlighten you to the beauty of gratitude and what it can do for your everyday life.

These students of movement go about on their merry way training their hearts out and progressing at astounding speeds.
