Find Your Lite.

5 Nov

Lite (1)

It’s time to put your angst on a diet! Or just get it liposucked out your life all together.

Whatever is it that gives you energy, focus or momentum keep that and not bog yourself down with clouded judgments and irrational choices made in desperation or being unprepared.

You know the story, you set a goal (lose 10 pounds, save 1000 dollars or start that project) get everything in order to make it happen, start seeing some progress and something unexpected is thrown in your life (breakup, high bill or people helping don’t come through) then all of the sudden you feel heavy, dark and just want to give up. Only weeks later now you’re in a rut and upset with yourself because you still haven’t accomplished what you set out to do.

That is me some of the time, I set out to do so much at the start of every month, I’ll have a list of 10 things to get said goals accomplished and if I complete all but one I feel like the most sluggish disappointing fatso ever.

I understand life happens and you can’t prepare for the unexpected but you can have a plan to make your way through the darkness and lighten your load. It’s all about finding your drive and using it to keep you pushing towards your goals. Constantly we are told that we should be setting goals and mapping out our life but never how we are to stay on course.

I’m a firm believer of what you don’t get done today just put it on the list for tomorrow. However, that’s easier said than done when you tried, looking for help and can’t seem to win no matter how much you organize. This is where finding your “lite” is all about it. What is your escape?

In having a goal it should be a reason to why you want to achieve that goal. For some it’s their kids, others their closets and most their future, but for right now what tangible aids could you name that help you get through tough times to remain strong willed to travel with a heavy load? What will help you see through the darkness. It could be a book, televisions show a collection of pictures, a childhood memory or someone you look up to all to help your remember why it is you embarked on this trail that could be used as some sort of flashlight or wheelbarrow to propel you on your journey to success.

For me it documentmenting everything; my thinspiration board, dry erase board and cellular calendar. I know these things are basic and not the common “my mom” or “my family” motivators. But what these things represent is that feeling I get when I’m checking things off my dry erase board, showing up ready to work at every schedule calendar appointment and having the excitement and inspiration to create/buy/workout awesome things pasted together on my thinspiration board. Each of these tools take me to a light and cheery space giving me the energy I need to want to continue to victory.

Lists, boards and having a tangible motivator is all about accountability. We may not have control over the outcome but we have a responsibility to ourselves to deal with it. No matter what is thrown at us or how awful it makes me/you feel abandoning our goal because of it still leave all the blame on you.

When life shuts down a tunnel in your road to greatness you don’t just give in, you maintain and find a new route. Sometimes when I get bad news in the middle of the day I just want to cancel everything and just go home, go to sleep until I feel better but that doesn’t get any of my goals achieved nor help me deal with the new problem.

We have to have an escape plan from those dark times, it could be setting a daily to-do list, have a mantra posted on everything or simply taking a few minutes to decompress and escape mentally to a private place that will help you get back to work.

Not everything will work your way yet you still can have everything you want. Finding your lite is about being noticed, clear minded and hopeful. Be more optimistic, use every mistake and success to learn from to store and use for the future.

Find what makes you happy, understand why is it that you want a specific accomplishment and what will it mean if you don’t get it. These three rationales will help you strengthen yourself against the dark side of life.

So as some on you are in the middle of your squat or ab challenges and don’t feel like you have the time or aren’t looking like you hoped ask yourself is this what you really want and and what else could you be doing not to give up and get better results.

That’s another things, is the things you say you want really what you want? Are you just making goals to compete with someone or validate yourself for another shortcoming or failed attempt at what it is you truly desire. Maybe that is why you can’t ever stay motivated because you’re not invested. When you’re invested nothing can get in your way.

The moral of the store; stay ready so you don’t have to get ready. Life is a scary dark tunneled with carb load distraction at every stop. Stay strong and head for the light. Skinny is on the other side.
