Mindset Of Confidence: Overcoming The Fear Of Failure

Mindset Of Confidence: Overcoming The Fear Of Failure
For many years I had a huge fear of failure which affected my life on a daily basis. I would struggle to make conversation just in case I said something wrong. I would be fearful of doing new tasks at work and home, just in case I made a mistake. My life revolved around "What ifs" - wondering whether I was good enough to do anything that came my way or say anything that was worthwhile! As I look back now I realise how much time I wasted just on my thinking alone. It was only until I came across a book called "The Secret" that my eyes were opened into how my mindset had controlled my life. I had allowed my negative thinking to shape who I was, which in my eyes wasn't who I wanted to be. 

Have you ever felt the same way? Thankfully, I found a way to completely transform how I think and act. It wasn't an overnight thing but it definitely was the beginning of a new way of thinking and living. All it took was these simple changes within my life.

Begin To Change Your Thoughts

The first thing I began was to take on board what I had learnt from reading The Secret which is a very inspiring book that will lead you into a new way of thinking. These words were what began my journey to changing my thoughts patterns.

How to Introduce Exercise to Your Weekly Schedule

How to Introduce Exercise to Your Weekly Schedule

Make Your Workouts Fun

The biggest mistake that I made when I first began introducing exercise to my weekly schedule, was choosing the wrong kind of workouts. It was an aerobic 6 week DVD fitness programme that I felt was repetitive and after two weeks...boring. I was 3 stone over weight after having three operations for an chronic illness that I suffered with, I needed something in my life that was fun but instead ended up with a bunch of DVDs that I bought which were not cutting it. Yes, I lost around 1/2 stone in weight but I was bored... and I mean really bored... ready to give up! I needed a weekly workout schedule that I knew I would enjoy! That I would actually stick to. Don't make the same mistake I did! Make it fun!

We have so much choice when it comes to exercising:

Boost Your Workout with Essential oils

Boost Your Workout with  Essential oils
Do you need to put a stop to daily stress? Are you doing your best to live a healthier life? Are you wanting to create a happier you? For me, it's yes to all of the above! Over these last 4-5 years, I've been working on being physically fit, working out from home 4-6 days a week, some months I will be super fit while others I struggle. Missing a workout here and there can take its toll on your body. But thankfully, I never give up? No! I look at ways to get back into the swing of things. I've now turned to some mighty motivators that make me want to move! Those motivators are my essential oils!

Motivation for Workouts at Home

Anyone that knows me, knows that I love doing my workouts from home. It's my thing that I love to do! You can get up early in the morning, your hair can look a mess (because no one is going to be watching you) and you get workout done before heading out to work. Exercising at home is even better when you have some essential oils on hand. I diffuse for the right atmosphere. High-intensity cardio calls for energizing oils like Peppermint and Lemon. When I seek more relaxation and tranquility, I set the mood for yoga with grounding Frankincense.


Motivation for The Gym

Unlike me, some of you may actually enjoy the gym. Like my daughter who heads to the gym before going to work. I don't know how she actually does it! Here are some hacks that were recommended to me, as I do intend to head to the gym once I've moved house in the next coming months. I'll let you know when that happens!
