Tips to maintain a positive attitude at work.

So I recently started a new temporary job, and I have to say that it has been tough after not having to work for someone else for so long. So I thought it would be great to share with you guys a few tips on how I maintain a positive attitude at work, especially if you’re under a lot of pressure. Keeping a positive vibe at work can definitely make a huge difference in your success in this business, and life.

Whether you work from home or the corporate world, these tips will help keep the place a happy one:

  1. Recognition. Make sure to recognize your coworkers when you see that they are doing something right. It doesn’t matter the position that you’re in, do it. If someone always has their desk clean, or someone is being awesome with follow ups, being extra dedicated, compliment them. Everyone likes a little love to keep them encouraged.
  2.  Help. Anytime that you can. If you see that someone needs some help with something, always be the person that jumps on to help. It lets people know that they can depend on you.
  3. PositiveNo text. If there’s an important conversation you need to have with any of your coworkers, do it in person. Face to face. You never know how someone takes what you are trying to say. This will strengthen your communication at work.
  4. Have fun. Lighten up sometimes. Don’t be a dull coworker. Keep your focus but laugh and have fun at the same time.
  5. Have lunch time with others. Get to know them outside of work. Talk about something other than work.
  6. Stay positive. Your attitude is everything. A workplace full of drama can get toxic super quick. I get that you may not love your job, but it’s all about perspective. Tell yourself everyday “I am going to have a positive outlook today”.
  7.  Business and personal don’t match. Try to leave your personal business outside of work, and your business outside of your personal life. This is key. You have to know when yo turn off one or the other to keep them separate.

I hope these tips were helpful. They have helped me the past few weeks and at any other job I have had. But at the end of the day, we are all working to achieve greatness, beating ourselves down will not get us there.

Success is not about what you do, but about WHO you are. Choose to be happy and positive.

 What are some tips that have helped you stay positive at work??

February Check In

Wow! It’s already the second of February. Feels like just yesterday I was home celebrating New Year’s Eve with my family.

Anywho, did you make it? Did you go through with your resolutions? Are you still sticking to it? Or are you already falling back into old habits? Are you getting frustrated with the results?

This post is just a friendly reminder to KEEP GOING!! This is only the second chapter of twelve. Don’t give up.

The first few months are for exploring, finding out what works best for you. This is the beginning of your journey, your story. Don’t give up in the beginning… Like any book, you have to work your way up to the good part. If you know from the beginning how the story goes, or how it will end, will you really want to read it? So just keep going, we all want to see how great your story will end.

Just imagine 4 more weeks from now what you will look like and feel like if you stick to it. The change will be so much more noticeable, but only if you keep going.

Hey! If January wasn’t your best, you still have another eleven months. That is a lot of time to get back up and achieve whatever it is you want. So again, keep pushing. It may seem like a long time right now, but those months will fly by.

Keep killing it!

It’s not Mondays that suck, its your life.

I used to be the type of person to wake up and immediately look at my phone and scroll through Instagram. Until one day I saw this post that said, “It’s not Mondays that suck, its your life.” Not because I hate Monday’s, but because I realized how what I was currently doing with my time was affecting my life. So ever since then, it has become a ritual for me to start my morning with Personal Development before anything else. The reason why I do that is because it now helps me start my day on a positive note, which sets me off to have a great day, no matter what happens that day. So whether that is listening to a video, reading, completing one of my Bible Plans, or simply having a conversation with God, I make sure to start my day that way.

Your day goes however you want it to go. If you start your day in a bad note, and decide that it will be a bad day, then guess what??? it will be a bad day. But if you start on a good note, it doesn’t matter what happens to you, you will react to things differently, and you will start noticing how you don’t let those things ruin your day anymore. You start noticing how your days change, how you start having less and less problems, because you are in a less moody state.

LoveLifeI always encourage self growth, which I think is obvious as you look at my page and read a few of my posts. I encourage everyone to follow their heart, because you never know the wonderful places it can lead you to. So I do a lot of Personal Development. This is something everyone should be doing first thing when you start your day.

Well, today I heard a really great video that had an amazing group of speakers put together into one. It starts with a great message from a book called “The Complete Conversations with God” by Neale Donald Walsch. Which is a great recommendation if you are spiritual/religious. You will also hear different quotes from big names in the sports and entertainment field. I don’t think it is a coincidence that so many successful people have the same ideas and principles when it comes to success. They all share similar ideas to help you succeed, that you can find in bible scriptures with a twist of modern language.

I think it is important for us, specially people my generation or younger, to seek guidance from people who are already at the level you want to be at. To listen to those who have been through life because they already know what works and what doesn’t. They have already gone through mistakes that we can learn from. And although you will still make mistakes, even the same ones, you can at least skim some of these by just listening to those that are where you want to be.

You have to do what most people don’t want to do, what they don’t have the passion to do. This is the only way success will come to you. The things that take the most time, that are the hardest, are the things that will make you the most successful version of yourself.

Like the video says, you are your own rule maker. You set the guidelines. You decide how well you have done, how well you are doing, how well you will do. For you are the one who decides who and what you really are and who you want to be.

So look at what successful people are already doing, listen to what they have to say, and adjust whatever you need to adjust based on your life, so that we can all be there too. See you at the top!

Here is that video I was referring to. Hope you listen to it and that it helps.

One of the Most Motivational Videos You’ll Ever See

If you have any other video or book suggestions, please share them in the comments. I am looking forward to adding a ton my list.

 

Here are some things we HAVE to leave behind.

So as January comes to an end, I wanted to quickly go over a few things that we should leave behind. These are things that should have been left back in 2017, but if you haven’t yet, DO IT NOW, so that you can finally start improving again.

These are things that you should leave behind so that you can focus your energy on being great, on being amazing, being the best version of yourself and having an amazing 2018.

  • Worrying about unnecessary things. There’s no telling on the amount of time we have all wasted on worrying about something ridiculous.
  • Thinking that self care is selfish. If anything, this is NECESSARY. You need to care for yourself if you want to care for others.
  • Doubts. What’s in the past is in the past. You are only in the NOW. You can’t change the past. It will only stop you from paying attention to opportunities that could be right in front of you.
  • Restrictive diets. Make it a healthy balanced lifestyle, not something where you have to restrict yourself from everything.
  • Being proud of being busy. Ok, this one is a bit odd. But nowadays everyone brags about being busy, but the human mind and body can’t handle that kind of stress well. You don’t want to reach a total burnout. Take some time to recharge.
  • Unrealistic expectations. There is not one person that has a perfect life. Stop comparing yourself to an illusion. If you strive for perfection it will stop you from seeing how good what you have is. Happiness comes from appreciating what you already have.
  • Social Media. You may be thinking, “how is she saying this when one of her main jobs is social media”. I don’t mean completely people. But at least sometimes. Social media is amazing and it offers a great opportunity if you know how to take it, but if you spend too much time on it, it can mess with your head.

What do you want to leave behind?

Happy Holidays & Happy New Year!

Happy Holidays!!! Hope that you had an amazing holiday season with your loved ones. That you enjoyed every single second of it. I sure did, that is why I wanted to share a little bit about how mine went.

Happy New YearNow, I don’t wish you a year where everything is great, that is something unrealistic. I wish you a year where you can look in the mirror and love yourself. That you have enough self-love to fight your battles, and to be humble enough to know when a battle is impossible to win. I wish that you could understand that if you move from complaints things can actually change for you. That you stay away from the “I can’t” and recognize the “I don’t want to”. I wish that you listen to your truth, and that you say it with confidence, because this is your truth. That you face your fears, because it is the only way you will be able to get over it. That you learn how to tolerate other people’s flaws because you also have your own. That you don’t punish yourself for making mistakes, you can’t do it all. That you continue to grow, until the point that you can and want to. I don’t wish that this 2018 brings you happiness but that you can be happy.

That this New Year you become happy, joyful, healthy and successful in everything you want.

Remember that I am here to support you in achieving any personal, health or fitness goal and to help you fulfill your dream.

What did you do for the holidays? What do you celebrate?

Here is how I spent my Holiday Season:

New Years Resolutions

New Year’s resolutions are the main topic around this time of year. We see this time as a way to start clean to hit a new goal. Whether it is a health, spiritual, financial, or personal goal. But what we don’t realize is that not a lot changes from year to year and majority of us fail at most of them.

The reason why I think that is, is because we underestimate how much it really takes to change an unhealthy habit. We normally get started on these things we want for the new year, but once we see that it is not happening right away, we give up for a while, sometimes completely.

dear self new yearSo instead of creating the same resolutions you set every year, come up with some alternatives that can help you start your healthy lifestyle and keep it permanently.

Instead of saying something like, “I will start doing 100 sit ups a day” or “I will do the plank/squat challenge”, say “I will incorporate more ab exercises and cardio into my workouts.” Don’t say “I will exercise every day”, instead say “I will move every day” or “I will exercise 3-5 times a week”.

Why is that? Doing sit ups won’t make you skinny, it won’t make you lose belly fat. Plus, you don’t become fit by working out every single day. You become fit by finding a balance between work and rest. Exercising every day can actually make you weaker because it break down your body. Resting will help your body recover itself and get ready for the next time it is challenged.

Also, don’t say “I will stop eating unhealthy food” because you don’t want to restrict yourself some food, because this will more likely drive you to fall faster and harder than before. Instead, say something like “I will eat a balanced diet with room for treats with moderation.” And don’t use the word “cheat” because it suggests that what you’re doing is wrong, when it’s not.

So take some time to think about what you really want to accomplish this new year, and the reason why. Will it make you happy once you achieve it? If not, don’t waste your time on it. If you really do want to change your lifestyle, be realistic with your goals, and focus on finding things that will make this shift a lot easier. Most importantly, take care of yourself.

Be happy with what you have but work

Here are some few tips that can actually help you stay committed and consistent with your goals:

  • Write them down. If you write them down or see a picture of it daily, it will make it easier for you to remember it.
  • Visualize yourself at your goal. How would you feel if you were already there? If you already had that thing you wanted? Think about it constantly.
  • Look at the bigger picture. Don’t let the little things distract you. The doubters, self doubt, temptation, don’t let it stop you.
  • Be grateful for your support system. Get rid of any people who are toxic and bringing you down. If they are not supportive of your goal, they don’t need to be a part of your life. Be grateful for those who do.
  • If you make a mistake, it’s ok. We all screw up once in a while. It is ok. The world won’t end, life goes on. Just pick the pieces back up and keep it going.

You won’t be perfect, you have to realize that. But don’t give up. Continue to work hard on your goals until… no ifs or buts. Demolish your goals. I hope these tips can help you a bit, they have definitely helped me in the last few years.  I hope that you achieve everything you want in life and that you live the life you so deserve.

Good luck!

Happy early New Year!!

this is your year

What makes your heart happy?

What are some things that make your heart happy? What sparks joy in you? What brings value into your life?

do more of what makes you happyThese are some questions I have been asking myself lately as I try to find what I am truly passionate about. We all have had our moments of feeling down and depression, wondering if what we are currently doing with our lives is really what we love to do, or if we’re just simply used to it, or doing it for others. 

But you have to ask yourself, how do you want to live your life? What are some things that you love doing and could do for the rest of your life? Do you spend too much time doing things you don’t want to do with people you don’t like?

Spread loveStop pretending to like things that you don’t, this will help you to have more time, energy and money for the things that you actually enjoy. Stop trying to do things to make others happy, stop trying to be someone you’re not to make them like you. You deserve to feel free to be yourself and live your best life.

Here are just a few of the things that bring value to my life, things that I find to be valuable. And you’ll continue to discover more things as you continue to learn more about yourself.

  • Being kind to others
  • Spending time with my family
  • Spending time with friends
  • Taking nature walks
  • Working out and feeling strong
  • Being myself, and being authentic about it
  • Stimulating my brain
  • Helping other people
  • Taking care of my physical, mental and emotional needs
  • Pursuing creative hobbies

What are some things that add value to your life? Do you enjoy reading? Writing? Cooking? Watching your favorite show? Photography? Drawing?

Happy
