What To Do When You are Frustrated with YOU?

Yoga is much more than stretching.

We all have good days an bad days. The trick to moving ahead in life is not to just string more of the good days together it is what we do with the bad days.

Mistakes, failures and set backs are all a necessary part of the process for growth. The hard part is they all suck and hurt. It is not fun to miss, make mistakes, swallow our pride...

Mistakes and setbacks are tests for us to see what we are made of. But sometimes we get in a rut and it's really hard to crawl out of it.

Here are some thoughts about 'What To Do When You are Frustrated with YOU?'

Perspective on Time

Spending time with friends is great time spent. 

Imagine there is a bank account that credits your account each morning with $86,400. It carries over no balance from day to day. Every evening the bank deletes whatever part of the balance you failed to use during the day.

What would you do?

Draw out every cent, of course?

Each of us has such a bank. Its name is time. Every morning, it credits you with 86,400 seconds. Every night it writes off as lost, whatever of this you have failed to invest to good purpose. It carries over no balance. It allows no over draft. Each day it opens a new account for you. Each night it burns the remains of the day. If you fail to use the day's deposits, the loss is yours. There is no drawing against "tomorrow." You must live in the present on today's deposits. Invest it so as to get from it the utmost in health, happiness and success.

The clock is running. Make the most of today.

With this in mind, what will you spend more time on?? Post to the comments.

Failure Fixes...

my accountability partner...

Sometimes it is just as important to know what NOT to do versus what to do. As we have just crossed the mark on the first complete month of 2013 lets take a look at what others struggle with so that you can change what you are doing to stay on track to achievement. 

I have been a FITness coach for over 11 years and have noticed quite a few things that will NOT lead to someones success with their FITness results. 

Uninspiring Goals
When most people set goals, they envision a "thing," such as a particular amount of weight (loss or gain), an object (like a new car), or a specific achievement (like writing a book). Unfortunately, most of the time these "things I'm gonna get or do" goals don't appeal to the core of what motivates you, because they miss the point that what you're actually seeking in life and work is the POSITIVE EMOTIONS that you believe those things will produce.

Fix: Rather than envisioning a "thing" as your goal, envision--with all the strength in your imagination--how you will feel when you achieve the goal? What are the reasons WHY you want to achieve the particular goal? That way, you'll be inspired to do whatever it takes to achieve that goal.
