Get Your Focus Back
So last Sunday I had a very strange feeling...
I felt sad
Honestly I don't really know why
Years ago I used to work in a bank
I hated it
And every Sunday I'd get that 'back to work ' feeling
Which, let's face it, is basically sadness.
But right now I love what I do
yet I had that same 'sunday sadness' feeling
So I wasn't sure why I felt sad and de-motivated.
there was no reason to be sad!
...then it HIT me like a ton of bricks...
I was in 'Self-Pity' mode
> Looking at all the work I had to do in the following week
> Thinking of how hard I would have to work
> going through the hours of writing programs, diets, coaching my clients, business development work, training staff and marketing that would be required
And a ton more.
But then, that's what I signed up for when I set-up a business, right?
Isn't it funny that we put ourselves through tough times for one purpose...
To get a better life.
But we can end up getting 'lost in the details' and forgetting WHY we're hustling.
Let's go a little deeper...
On a base level your job brings you money so you can have food, shelter and look after your family
Everything else on top is just to make you happy (think clothes, holidays, nights out etc.)
And 99% of people have a choice over what they do
I know, I know - at times you can feel stuck in a job
but in reality you could walk out and nobody would be chasing after you with a sledgehammer
You go to work out of CHOICE
So you really can't get the Sunday Sadness
but if you do here's how to fix it:
1) Look at your life and be grateful for all the great things that your job allows you to do, be and have
2) Realise that if you don't want to go to work, start planning how to be happier in your work. What we do in the working day makes up more than half of the waking hours, make sure you're working with a purpose. New job? New promotion? Self-employed? Go traveling the world? Do what you want.
3) Understand that the Sunday Sadness is just self-pity - you are feeling sorry for yourself - and that is really unnecessary and harmful to your happiness because you are holding yourself in that negative mood. Choose to feel better and you will!
Instead of passively accepting negativity into your life
Actively choose to feel good and don't accept anything less!
This has helped me improve my life month after month
Of course this is a principle that I drift away from (like last Sunday)
But I now try to focus on the positives more often
