If you are on a quest for self-improvement, whether it is achieving your dream physique or, perhaps, learning to deal with negative self-talk, you probably already know that there is no such thing as perfect.
Improvement is a lifelong process rather than a final destination. Whenever you think you are good, you realize you can be much better. As frustrating as it may seem at times, embracing this one fact can save you a lot of headache down the road. Learn to love the ever constant battle!
If you’re looking for the tools that are necessary to continue your quest, take a moment to browse the motivational fitness apparel and workout accessories in the Dissident online store.
Our bodies and minds only grow in the presence of challenge, and there is nothing more rewarding than looking back and seeing your starting point and how far you’ve managed to come.
This week we encourage you to keep growing and bettering yourselves. To help you with that, here are ten ways you can do it:
This is a big one. How many times have you given up on a dream because of fear? Fear may tell you that you have no time or resources. Fear may even cover itself up as care for the needs of those around you. Whatever it is, have enough strength to face it. The only way to conquer your monsters is to call them by their names.
Are you guilty of doing the same thing over and over again, expecting different results? If so, change your direction! The road to success is never easy and straight, and sometimes you may need to do a couple of u-turns before you get on right track.
Whether you’ve been banging on a closed door or missing an open one, there is no point in convincing yourself that you’ve done everything perfectly. Admit your mistake, learn the lesson and move on. You’ll do better next time.
Too many of us rely on external confirmations of our self-worth. To become the best version of yourself, you don’t need anyone telling you that you can. All you will ever need is already within you. Believe that you have the power and tools to achieve your goals.
To become better at anything you need to continuously give 100 percent effort. You will not be perfect, you will make a ton of mistakes along the way, BUT, by giving it your best shot, you will get the best possible results.
A well-disciplined life creates abundance, uniqueness and productivity. Continuous self-improvement requires dedication. Stay away from temptations, and anything and anyone who tries to steer you off course.
It is easy to stay in the middle and never fully commit yourself to any extreme end of a matter. Yes, the middle is safe, however, it will never bring you the results that are anything more than mediocre. Decide what you want, and then go for it with full commitment.
Invest more of yourself into your goals. Live with more vitality, more strength and more heart and soul. You only get to live today’s day once, make sure you get the best out of it.
Go for something beyond what you think you can do. Don’t listen to anyone who may say you’re crazy; you have the power to get anything you want in this life. So stop limiting yourself to those safe and easily achievable goals. Aim higher!
Don’t forget to stop from time to time to see how far you’ve come. It is easy to take the life you have now for granted and forget how much effort was required to get here. Everything you have right now was once nothing more than a dream. Realizing this will help you believe in your strength and ability to make all of your new dreams a reality one day too.
Don’t ever stay the same. Dream, work, improve and reflect. If your goals are to achieve true health and wellness, we can help. Shop our full selection of workout accessories online today.Be Dissident, Be You!
Do you trust yourself? Most of us don't ask that question too often as we naturally tend to think that we all do. What many of us don't realize is that your level of self-trust can be different about different things. You may trust your instincts and yourself in some things, like driving your car or caring for pets, for example. But what about when it comes to making big commitments or decisions? Do you trust your intuition and reasoning to make decisions that are actually yours and makeYOU happy and not someone else?
No matter how you handled yesterday, there is nothing you can do about it now. Whatever tomorrow has to offer has yet to be unveiled – and you have no control over it. The only time you can control is NOW – so bring your A-GAME and make the best of it.
You may think you can just do it tomorrow – but tomorrow is a myth because there is always a tomorrow. If you are not going to do it now, then you may never actually get around to doing it. Make the best of the now and get right to what you planned to do.
