Do you ever have those mornings where you just wake up and you don’t feel like doing life? Maybe you’re going through a really trying time in life, or maybe you’re just having a rough week.
If you’re feeling discouraged right now, here’s some encouragement on how to show up and give 100% even when you don’t feel like it…
1. Don’t bite off more than you can chew.
I can’t stress this enough. Really think about what is going to matter in 10 years from now.
If you set yourself up for failure from the get-go by making a massively long to-do list or over-committing to too many things, you’ll be too overwhelmed to want to show up and give it your all.
Decide what your top priorities are, make sure those are on your list, and be okay with taking other things off your list that really aren’t going to matter.
2. Take care of YOU.
If you want to have the energy to pour out to others, you have to be sure to take care of yourself first. You can’t give from an empty tank. Prioritize filling up your tank.
Think about what will nourish your soul, spirit, and body. When you live from a nourished place, you’ll have more energy to be able to show up and give your all.
3. Wherever you are, be all there.
This is the best way to give 100%. Strive to be completely present in whatever moment you’re in. It’s so easy to think about where you have to be next, what you have to do, or even what you’ll say next in a conversation. Listen fully, dwell in the present moment, and be with the people surrounding you.
For me, it helps to compartmentalize. I have a marriage to invest in, children to homeschool, friends to spend time with, a business to run and manage, social media accounts to keep up with, a blog to write, and so much more.
I could let it overwhelm me and can feel like I’m losing my mind if I try to multi-task. When I compartmentalize and focus fully on one thing at a time, I’m able to do all of these things and do them well.
What motivates you to show up and give 100% each day in life?
