LIFESTYLE: MOTIVATIONAL MONDAY
I always love starting my Monday with a little inspiration and sweat. I don't know about you, but I adore Mondays. This sentiment is probably not shared by most, as the coined 'dreaded Monday' syndrome seems to hit many! I do understand, as it's hard to go back to work / life / routine after a weekend. I think I bypass this, by truly doing what I love, and in reality working almost everyday (even weekends!) so I don't have the two day break that most get.
I further believe it's how you look at the day and start of the week. If you despair going back to the office / work you could do a couple of things:
1) Change your attitude about how your day is going to pan out. If you visualize goodness, and infuse your day and work place with positivity it can change many things. It will also radiate out to your coworkers. You will be met with stress, and possibly pressure, but only you can change your internal dialogue! Choose to see the silver lining. There is always a solution to your problem.
2) If you are waking up each day not loving, or liking, your job I highly suggest you take stock of your job, career, and work environment. In no way go and quit your job, but maybe start researching new pathways, and positions. You work so much of your life, that it is not worth it to hate your job and getting up every morning! Life is short.
Great people do things before they are ready. They do things before the know they can do it. Doing what you're afraid of, getting out of your comfort zone, taking risks, that is what life is. You might be really good. You might find out something about yourself that's really special and if you're not good, who cares? You tried something. Now you know something about yourself that you wouldn't of known otherwise. So take the step, the lead, and make the choice to choose greatness and happiness. The only way to break a cycle is to do something different, and to frame it in another way. Love your Mondays, and they will love you back. You might not be ready to change your attitude, or switch careers, but you might never be! We all start some place.
I encourage you to start looking at Mondays a little different! It might take a few Mondays to get in the swing of things. I promise it gets better, and it makes the entire week that much sweeter.
