Work In Progress

workinprogressIt’s almost the end of February and I told myself that I would start 2014 off differently. I was going to have a different mindset this time around because change begins in the mind before it can actually be seen with the eyes. I started working out (doing the 30 day ab and squat exercises) eating healthy (and counting calories) and I would post regularly on the site. I was good up until the last week of January lol…I don’t know what happened but I just lost interest in the workouts and started going back to my old eating habits. And as far as the site, well I haven’t posted in weeks until today so you know how that turned out. I started off so gung-ho about everything but then the passion and energy started to evaporate and I ended up in the same place I started. I felt like a failure and anyone that knows me knows that I hate to fail. I understand that failure is apart of life but I hate the feeling that I get when I try something but for whatever reason, things don’t go as expected and I am left feeling defeated and disappointed. I started thinking about why I couldn’t complete the goals I set out to do and I realized that even though I was attempting to do the physical changes, I really didn’t prepare myself mentally for them so when things became too tough, my mental couldn’t take it anymore and I went back to the old way of doing things. I was reading Necole Bitchie’s personal blog last night and she had a post titled “You Will Not Always Win”(iamnecole.com/blog/you-will-not-always-win/). She discussed how the most successful people were rejected and turned away but that in the end, they moved on to something bigger and better. These people knew that failure didn’t mean that they should give up but that instead, try harder or do something different. As long as you are happy and are doing what you love to do, you won’t fail in the end. So today I told myself that I would figure out focusing on what makes me happy and working on goals related to that. I want to be in a better frame of mind and promote positivity and self-love  and be a shining example of a person who has overcome the obstacles placed in her way and became the best version of herself that she could be. Only then will I be able to do all the things I want to do and meet all of those goals and handle rejection and failure when it comes my way. Failure is inevitable but it is all how you handle it. I have run away from it but now I know that to get to that next level, I have to face it head on and bounce back. Instead of aiming for perfection, I am working on being happy and honest with myself. We are all a work in progress and everyday is a new day to improve the condition of our lives and the lives around us. I would love to hear more about your journey. How did you overcome the obstacles in your path? What motivates you to get out there and do your very best? Let me know in the comments section below! I look forward to reading your replies!

  1. Hey Angie!

    Great post! Yes I’ve feel these moments a lot…because sometimes you feel like you are so close to accomplishing your goals yet so far away. Sometimes I wish there was a quicker way to get to my goals, but this is life and there is not always an easy way.

    You know what I did figure out was the secret to manifesting goals it’s so easy but it can be a challenge, it’s consistency! We hear it all the time but the moment we slack or put self doubt within ourselves the momentum of our prosperity deminishes a little. It’s like the universe is literally is only going to give you the same energy you put out. You can’t cheat the system.

    Well anyways we all are human nonetheless. Sometimes our minds are working faster than we can physically commit to and it’s ok to take a break and recharge. Recharge and Rethink and continue your journey knowing your destination with have a reward. Much love always!
