How to change our mindset about stress

We talk a lot about mindset, it´s one of the 5 principles of fitness and it has an impact in our life, I´ve seen this in so many people. The ones who have the right mindset, the ones have develop the successful mindset are the ones who achieve more in life, the ones with a wrong mindset are the ones who stay stuck living an average life who spend so much time blaming, criticizing and complaining.

Our mindset is key so we need to develop the right mindset, how we think of stress is how it affects our life, if we think that stress is bad and it can get us suck then we will get sick but if we think that stress has a positive impact then we can make stress work for us so developing the right mindset and changing our thoughts and believes is key but changing thoughts and believes is one of the hardest things to do.

To change our thoughts and believes about stress we need to start by being aware and living in the present moment, when we´re in a stressful situation our body and mind acts according to past experiences and we take decisions based on those experiences and almost all time we make the wrong decision because we are not able to think, we just react instead of taking some time.

If we think about how our body responds in this situations, our heart rate goes up, we start to sweat, our mind creates the most negative situation and also start bringing some related situations from the past, it is at this moment when we need to be aware of all this going on and reframe the situation.

Once we are aware we need to take a time to breathe, breathing technique are incredibly amazing to help us calm down, take 6 deep breathes and you´ll feel your body calming down so you´ll be able to think and make the best choice, once you feel calm you need to start reframing the situation to a positive outlook. What´s the best scenario, start thinking about what´s the best decision you can make that will give you the best results.

When we reframe the situation to a positive outcome we start to find several solutions to our situation, this is hard to do at the beginning because our mind will always bring the negative stuff so we need to work to change that so that it stops thinking about the negative and instead focus on positive results.

This is the best way to deal with stressful situations, when we start doing this it´s easier to believe that stress is not bad and it can actually be helpful, another thing you need to do is remind yourself that stress is good for you and keep repeating this phrase over and over specially during stress.

Repeating over and over again that stress is good for us, that it will help us grow, that something good will come out of all of this our energy changes, if we feel our heart rate up, if we feel anxious and sweaty we can trick our brain saying that we are excited and we´re ready to go, instead of believing that we´re stressed out we can think that we´re excited, this is part of reframing the situation, if we think and really believe that stress can´t harm us we will be able to deal with is and use in the best way, one that work in our favor to get the results we want.

The negative impact of self-doubt

Fear and self-doubt are the most common limiting believes and those may the ones stopping you from achieving your goals. Self-doubt is the lack of confidence or don´t believing in yourself.

If you believe that you are not worth it or that you don´t deserve anything great you are living in self-doubt which is one reason to keep leaving your goals for when you are good enough, when you know everything you need, when you deserve what you want. But if you believe this then you´ll stay where you are right now. There´s no way you can achieve something if you don´t start working and to take action you need to eliminate self-doubt from your mind. Increasing confidence on yourself is key.

One of the best steps you can take to start increasing your self-confidence is set small goals, goals you can achieve in 1 week. It can be as simple as reading 10 minutes a day for the next 7 days, it can be to eliminate all junk, processed and fast food from your house and office, it can be to do 10 minutes of exercise every day.

Take the activity you want or the goal you want to achieve in 1 week, keep it simple so that you can keep track of your progress daily and achieve your goal in those 7 days, what we´re looking for here is to keep you accountable. To realize that you can achieve your goals, with time you need to make those goals bigger and bigger and of course; you need to give enough time.

Starting with weekly goals builds momentum and that´s what you need, when you are lock in any limiting belief we need to eliminate that limiting belief and change it for a positive one so we need to get out of that loop, in this case the belief that you are not worth it or you don´t deserve it or you are not capable. When we set small goals we can achieve in a small period of time our self-confidence start to increase and this motivates us to go after bigger goals.

Taking action is crucial, take one step at a time, just one action. What action do you need to do today that will improve your life what do you need to do every single day to achieve your dream?

Working on small weekly goals make us feel successful, it makes us feel that we can achieve something, that we are capable of doing what we said we were going to do and that feeling of success and accomplishments is what motivate us to set bigger goals.

The bigger your goals, the bigger the reward and the bigger the feeling of success and accomplishment. When you start to eliminate self-doubt and increase self confidence you start with small goals, one thing you need to consider is do not listen to what others say or think of you, most people will always be criticizing and talking behind our backs, we will never please everyone so stop worrying about that. When we listen and pay attention to those negative comments we are only giving more importance and we´re taking our focus from what matters which is our goal.

It doesn´t matter what your goal for your first week is, we´re all at different levels so don´t compare yourself to others, it doesn´t matter if their coworkers, classmates, neighbors or social media influencers. Focus on you and do your thing there´s no reason to compare with someone who hasn´t lived our story.

How fear is killing our dreams

28 fear

How many goals or projects have you let aside just because of fear? The fear of failure, fear of what could go wrong, fear of what others say and think of us. Fear is what keeps us stuck and the reason why we don´t follow our dreams.

We all have fears, even the greatest athletes, actors, musicians, CEOs the only difference is that they know how to take that fear and turn it into excitement, the fuel, energy and motivation they need to get pass that fear and follow their dreams.

Developing a successful mindset is key, you need to realize that the journey is hard and the only thing that will keep you going in those hard times is your mindset and is the same that will give you enough reasons to give up. Whit a successful mindset you´ll be able  to keep going every time you fail, you´ll be strong enough to know how to handle rejection and all the no´s you´ll get over and over again.

If you are doing something right now that you don´t like or you even hate and you have some project or goal that you´ve been setting aside take them and start working on them, if you don´t know where to begin research someone who did what you want to do and start modeling them, do what they did but do it in your own way.

Take a dream you have and set it as a goal, if it´s too big set smaller goals for every day, week, month and year and create an action plan, what do you need to do every single day that will keep you moving towards your dream, and start taking action every day.

Now, when fear gets in your way, acknowledge it, it is there to tell you that you are out of your comfort zone, think deeply and figure out where that fear based, if it´s for what everyone around you is going to say? do it anyway, you´re not going to please everybody and there will be someone talking behind your back always. Is it fear of failure? see failure as a lesson, if you keep going and trying different strategies you didn´t fail, is it fear of rejection? they are not rejecting you, the guy or girl who rejected you is not interested on your product or service, just move forward and keep asking until you find someone who loves what you do.

The fear of not being good enough, of not feeling worth it, feeling that you don´t deserve it are hard to identify because they´re deep in our believes. The first thing you need to do is believe in yourself, it´s possible for you to achieve your goal, you are capable, if you put the time and hard work needed you can achieve amazing things.

Believe in yourself and believe that you deserve everything you want, but you need to really believe and feel in your heart that you are capable and that you deserve amazing things, it´s not enough to read affirmations, you need to feel the emotions.

Once you develop a successful mindset which includes changing thoughts and believes to believe in yourself and you start taking action every single day you just need to be consistent, continue working on your project every day following your action plan and when fear gets in your way remind yourself that you are capable of doing it, you got everything you need and you deserve the best of life.

What is procrastination and what can we do?

27 Procrastination
views

I´ve been listening to some guys talk about how young kids and teenagers procrastinate which actually gets me mad because all of us procrastinate. It doesn´t matter how old we are, it doesn´t matter if we´re going to school or if we have a 9 to 5 job or if we´re starting a business we all procrastinate.

One of the reasons many of us procrastinate is because we´ve become so accustomed to do the things that are easier and faster firsts, because we don´t want to do the hard work, we don´t want to think and spend time doing the other activities that will take more time and effort to accomplish so we do the least meaningful activities that won´t make a difference and we let those activities that take more time and effort, the one in which we need to think and be really focus for last, but this activities are the ones that give us the best results, that keep us moving forward faster.

Procrastination often comes from limiting believes, how many activities or things you need to do that you are just leaving for later? in how many of them the reason you don´t do them is because of some fear?

Fear of failure, fear of what others are going to say and think about you, fear of what could happen, the belief of not being good enough, the feeling of unworthiness and that you deserve what you want to achieve are the some of the causes of procrastination.

When we combine the limiting mindset with the though activities that require more time and effort it´s the recipe to procrastinate and stay right where we are now, in our comfort zone. What you can do is:

1.- Be aware.- You need to be aware of the reasons why you are procrastinating, it may be because of limiting believes like fear or it can be because of a lack of knowledge and skill.

2.- Learn skills.- If the reason why you are not taking action is because of lack of knowledge and skills then you need to learn the skills, there´s no shortcut here, the only thing you can do is to do a research of your goal or activity and find out which skills or which skill is the one that will give you the best results and move you forward faster and focus on learning or improving that skill.

3.- Develop a successful mindset.- Knowing how to get pass through those limiting believes is the way to achieve your goals, what´s stopping us from reaching our goals are those limiting believes. We´ve published post related to developing a successful mindset and eliminating limiting believes in this website and our social media accounts.

4.- Take action.- Nothing beats action, you need to do those activities you are avoiding so the next time you want to skip them or leave them for tomorrow don´t do it, stop thinking and start working on them.

How to set goals and achieve them

26 How to set goals and achieve them
views

I´ve seen so many people set goals, from New Year’s Resolution to monthly goals but not all of them achieve their goals, around 90% give up and there are many reasons why people tend to set goals without achieving them.

Here are the steps you need to follow to set your goals and achieve them, if you follow each step you´ll get results:

1.- Be specific.- Clarity is everything, you need to be very clear and specific on what you want to achieve. Do you want to lose weight? Remember that the goal must be to improve body composition, how much fat do you want to lose? what is your actual weight? what is your weight goal? what is the percentage of body fat you want to achieve? You need to be able to paint a clear image on your mind.

2.- Set a deadline.- When do you want to achieve your goal? you need to make sure that you are giving yourself enough time to get to your goal, if you have to much weight to lose you won´t make it un 2 months.  If it´s a big goal, you can give yourself one year maybe 2 years but you´ll need to break that big goal into smaller goals, set small goals for each month, then for each week.

3.- Design a plan of action.- You need to design a plan action for your big goal and work backwards with activities you need to do every single day that will get you to your goal, do you need to workout 20 minutes a day? or do you need to workout 90 minutes a day? do you need to eat clean and make some adjustments to your nutrition program? do you need to improve the quality of sleep? do you need to make stress work for you?

4.- Law of Attraction.- So much has now been said about this law and you can use it to help you achieve your goal. For this you need to keep your thoughts, emotions and actions in harmony. Your thoughts create an image of what your goal looks like, your emotions create the feeling of how it feels to achieved your goal and your actions keep you working for it. Energy, frequency and vibration working together – Nikola Tesla.

5.- Act.- Take action every single day, you´ve already designed your plan of action on step 3, the only thing missing is that you put the time and effort every single day doing the activities you need to do whether you want it or not, whether you feel like doing it or not. Don´t think about it just get up and do it.

There´s no secret for setting goals and achieving them, if you follow this 5 steps which we all know and you do it for as long as you need you´ll achieve your goal, if your goal is to get in amazing shape, step 3 is in part done for you, we created some programs that will get you there, you only need to set your macronutrient ratios and start following the program.

Live your life now and don´t have regrets later

For the past years I´ve listened to many people I know say how they will have fun on weekend, how they will travel the world when they retire, how they will start taking care of themselves when they lose weight, how they will spend more time with friends and family when they don´t have too much work, and the list goes on and on.

I´ve also listen to many people having a lot of regrets, working too much, not spending enough time with friends and family, not giving themselves time to travel and know the world, not having fun, not taking care of themselves.

The only thing we have is now so there´s no reason to keep waiting for something to happen so that we can have fun, so that we can take care of ourselves, spend time with the people we love and care about.

If you don´t start taking of yourself today then you´ll never lost weight, you need to get healthier for that excess of weight to come off, you start with taking care of yourself and at that same time you´ll start losing weight and in a couple of weeks you´ll start seeing and feeling the results, you´ll feel great with more energy and you´ll start seeing your body changing.

There´ll always be work and something to do, more projects, meetings but time is limited so don´t think twice about spending time with people you care about, especially with the ones who support you and care about you, don´t think twice about traveling, find a way to save money every month in an account specifically for traveling and travel at least one time per year, you can do it alone and take some time for yourself or you can do it with friends or family.

Finds ways to be happy right now and enjoy every moment, happiness comes from inside, you are responsible of your own happiness and you deserve to be happy and have fun every single moment of every day. Don´t let your happiness depend of something external, don´t wait for a situation, to be happy, don´t wait for a person to make you happy they can make you smile but being happy depends of you. Do not wait for the right time and right person to fall in love, fall in love with yourself right now, take care of yourself right and eventually the right person  will arrive.

There´s no reason to postpone our happiness and our well being to sometime in the future that will never come but when we start working on ourselves by taking care of our body physically, emotionally and mentally, when we´re happy and have fun amazing things start to happen in our lives.

Live your life today, be who you are do not worry about what other say or think of you, they´re already talking about you for good or bad and there will always be someone talking bad and criticizing so stop paying attention to them, the moment you stop worrying about others and you start living at your own expectation and who your really are without hiding anything you feel more freedom and less pressure, that moment you´ll start living a lot more happy and enjoying your life.

We´ve given one chance to live our best life so make sure that you don´t waste any second of it, make it the best it can be and don´t forget to help as much people as possible throughout your journey, that´s what gives you the most fulfillment.

The emotional attachments that keeps us stuck

23 The emotional attachments that keep us stuck

Life is hard so many times but some of those times hid us so hard that we became attach to them emotionally and those emotional attachments are the ones keeping us stuck in the same and are the ones creating so much pain and suffering.

When our happiness, success or anything else depends of someone or something external then we are attached to a certain person, to a situation to a goal. Thinking that we will be happy and we will feel worth when we lose weight and get in amazing physique is what´s holding us back, when we think that we will feel successful when our business hits a mark is also holding us back and if we really believe this and we wait until we achieve our goals chances are we won´t achieve them.

We need to feel successful first, we need to feel worth, we need to feel and really believe that we deserve all those things we want and once we feel and really believe in our heart that´s when things start to happen and we just need to maintain those feelings and believes and our goals will materialize… of course we need to take action every single day, otherwise nothing will happen.

The first step we need to take is to let go those attachments and for that you need to realize that those thoughts and believes are not true, they were installed in your brain through your environment and the people close to you when you were growing up but that doesn´t mean that they are true and they´re actually not, this step is hard but it´s important, it will give you the freedom you need to install new believes and thoughts and will reduce so much pressure from you.

There are some point you can follow and start using to let go:

1.- Recognize your feeling s and emotions.-  Every time you feel anxious, angry, stressed, fear recognize the feeling and try to identify what triggers it and with what experience of your past you are relating it.

2.- Accept that you can´t control everything.- Most of the external situations that happen to us are out of our control, so focus on what we can control and accepting that there are some things we can´t control but knowing that we can always act and find the best solution.

3.- Don´t expect anything from anyone.- Do good and be kind always but don´t expect to receive the same from everyone, just by doing good and being kind to everyone you cross pads with without expecting anything good things start to happen.

4.- Practice forgiveness.- If someone hurt you forgive that person, forgive everyone for everything they had done to you, this doesn´t mean that you will forget and that you´ll let them hurt you again, chances are you may never see them or talk to them again, this means that you let go of the negative emotions like sadness, resentment and even vengeance you have for them, you do it for you, not for them. And also forgive yourself, we´re all humans, we all make mistakes so forgive yourself for those mistakes and move one.

5.- Practice gratitude.- Feel grateful for everyone you have right now close to you, those friends or family, and also everything material that you have.

When we can take control of our mind we can take control of our life

22 Control your mind, control your life

If you want to live your most amazing life you need to take control of your mind, there´s nothing we can´t achieve but the things that is stopping us is our mind and it will keep us stuck until we decide to take control and use it to work for us, not against us.

Have you ever stopped for a moment and think about how our subconscious mind controls everything? It controls our entire day and consequently our life every day we do the same things, our mind is running a program that keeps it comfortable knowing exactly what to do, that´s what our mind wants being comfortable but that´s keeping us stuck in a mediocre life.

We are all capable of living an incredible life but for this we need to change the program that is running daily in our minds and to change that program we need to be aware of what we´re doing, and make different choices and this takes us out of our comfort zone so our mind will try to bring us back to that comfort zone, to the program with all kind of limiting believes and excuses of why we can´t do something which are completely wrong.

What we need to do is take control of our mind, out thoughts and believes. The moment we start making different choices, when all excuses and reasons why we can´t do something come to our mind we  don´t listen to them, we don´t pay attention to them, we go ahead and make that new choice, every time we make a different choice we is a victory and we do this over and over, those small victories from every new choice are making you stronger and this is how you are able to control your mind.

Many people talk about mental toughness, how much control do you have over your mind? do you take action and do what you need to do whether you want or not? do you show up every day with a winning mindset despite of what people around you says or think? are you completely focused on the results you want to achieve and you don´t let any belief or comment get in?

It takes time to develop mental toughness but it can be done, once you get mentally strong you´ll be capable of achieving things you thought were impossible. Mental toughness, drive and the obsession of achieving your goal is what keeps you going even in the hardest times, when you are able to see pass the obstacles and visualize clearly the end result  that means that you are in control of your mind which leads to having control of you life.

You need to go through a journey to achieve your goal, to get what you want and to become who you want to become, throughout the journey there´ll be hard, and though times, in those times of struggle is where most people give up but not you, every time you get to those difficult times focus on the end result. There will be times when you don´t want to get up early, or when you want to go to sleep or when you want to go to the party, there´ll be tedious and boring times that you don´t want to go through and you will hate them. Don´t give up, continue and breakthrough those times by thinking and focusing on the end result.

This is how you develop a strong mindset and how you get control of your mind, when you are able to shut those limiting believes and thoughts and you can get through the struggle, without letting any external noise affect you your performance and results on everything you do will be amazing.

How negativity affects our life

21 How negativity affects our life

Do you have been through a time in your life when something goes wrong and that single situation seems to be the beginning of a negative cycle? You woke up one day and all of a sudden it seems like if that day was destined to be the worst day of your life, everything that could go wrong hoes wrong and in some cases this continues for days.

We´ve all been through this situation and from my experience and what I´ve seen it´s a cycle created by negativity in our lives. One negative situation, the first thing that go wrong on our day changes our energy and get us in a negative cycle of thoughts, possibly angry, irritated, in a bad mood and this low energy and vibration brings more negative situations to us which creates a negative cycle that can continue for days.

It is true that we create our life through our believes, thoughts, feelings, emotions and actions so if spend most of our time with negative people, in negative environments, watching or reading negative information and we keep our mind focus on all that negativity that surrounds and we think of what we don´t want the problem is not only for that day or the week to come, that brings more negativity for months and years.

Many people spend too much time blaming someone else and complaining about their circumstances, this will only brings more of those circumstances so that they have something to complain about, many people talk about how much weight they want to lose or how hard it is to get money so they´ll continue wanting to lose weight and it will continue to be hard to get money.

Nowadays we´re surrounded by too much negativity all around the world so it´s not a surprise that more and more negative stuff happens in different countries, negativity is contagious the same way as positivity but it´s not only about seeing the positive in everything.

The problem is that we were programmed to think, belief and act this way, when we were babies and as we grow older we learnt from our environment and the people around us, family, friends, school and their believes, their thoughts, the way they talked was programmed in our subconscious this is why in most families every generation looks almost the same and live the same way.

If we continue following this thoughts and believes that create a negative life we will continue living negative situations because that the frequency or vibration we are in and it will continue until we decide to break that cycle and that´s though. To change those negative believes, thoughts, emotions, the way you talk and how you act we need to be conscious of them and in the beginning is as if we´re telling lies to ourselves, dealing with this is really hard and we also need to know how to cope with the people around us whom will start telling to us how crazy or idiots we are.

When we want to get different results we need to make different choices and that´s so hard to do and knowing that most people won´t support you makes everything harder if you´re looking to be accepted, you need to understand that most people prefer to stay in their comfort zone and stay the way they´re at so if you want to get to another level do what you need to do.

Everything is energy

“If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration” – Nikola Tesla.

I´ve met a lot of people who want to change their lives and they got inspired by the movie “The Secret” where they talk about the Law of Attraction and I constantly listen to them about how the law doesn´t work the reason why it doesn´t work for them the way they want it to work is because they don´t believe some terms like everything is energy and they don´t do anything to achieve their goals, thoughts alone won´t get you forward.

I can´t find any other quote that describes and compromises the most important principles than Nikola Teslas.

It´s not only about the Law of Attraction and thinking or visualizing what you want, even when your thoughts are powerful the first thing you need to understand and believe is that everything is energy. It is through your energy, your frequency and your vibration that you attract situations.

It is almost impossible to make the Law of Attraction work for you when you are consciously thinking and creating a vision in your mind of what you want for a couple of minutes every day but subconsciously you have doubts and you don´t believe that everything is energy.

Everything we see is made of atoms and atoms are made of energy, I won´t get to deep about atoms, protons, neutrons and other stuff here but since everything is energy everything is connected so to keep it simple you can change your life and your reality by influencing your thoughts and energy but this can´t be done by only changing your thoughts.

Since we´re born certain believes and thoughts are installed in our mind related to the society and environment you grew up and most of them are negative and of lack. You may be doing visualizations and affirmations consciously but if you still have those negative thoughts of lack fear and doubt you are sending mix messages and your subconscious wins most of the times.

You need to change those believes so that your subconscious is working with you not against you. You need to believe that everything is energy and that you can change your life and I mean really believe it, there can´t be fear or doubt. Once that´s in place you can start thinking on your goals.

Your thoughts and emotions need to be in harmony, your thoughts send signals to the universe but your emotions amplify that signal, if you have a clear vision of your goal in your mind and if you can increase your emotions to match your vision your frequency and vibration raises and that combination is what attracts what you like, once you have that in place you need to take action.

Once your thoughts and emotions are in harmony you need to have a plan of action, taking action towards your goal every single day keeps the momentum going, can you imagine what could happen when your thoughts and the vision of your goals combined with those amazing emotions of how achieving those dreams feel like start working together in your favor? Suddenly you are more motivated to take action and things just start to happen. There´s a lot more about this which we will be learning in later posts.
