Coaching, Training and Hypnosis from Not A Blue Tree
Two people on top of a cliff, the sun rising in the background, mist on distant hills. A new day, full of adventure, is dawning.

Is every day an adventure, or do you start each day with that sinking feeling?

An old-fashioned alarm clock, showing a time of 6.20am, beside a bed which looks partially madeWhen you wake up in the morning, what do you first think about? Is it all about what you have planned for the day? You’re thinking about what you intend to achieve. You’re contemplating the challenges you overcome. And, obviously, you’re considering how you celebrate all of the day’s successes, no matter how big or small. Alternatively, are you simply wishing the bed would swallow you up, the day just too dreadful to contemplate? Of course, it could be a combination of the two, with some highs to look forward to and some lows to work around. However, you have a sense of how most if not all of your days unfold. Is every day an adventure, or do you start each day with that sinking feeling?

A tree growing out of the side of a cliff, robust and resilientEvery day may be a real adventure. You may be fortunate to have something exciting and compelling to fill most if not all of your time. Alternatively, you may have an abundance of resilience, seeing each day for what it really is. Your resilience simply allows you to enjoy the good stuff. Equally, it reassures you that you have the ability to get through the challenges and come out the other side just that little bit stronger.

For some, though, every day is a chore, something to get through and nothing else. That sinking feeling as you contemplate the day is pervasive, affecting your thoughts, feelings, and actions. You somehow make it work. Crucially, your thoughts are constantly either elsewhere or focussed on how bad life is for you. Work, family, relationships, life itself, bring little joy.

So, where are you on that spectrum? Riding high on the adventure of life, or sitting on the side lines, a mere spectator? Moving forward, or simply stuck? At cause or at effect?

There are two things to consider. Firstly, how we view the day is all in the mind. We can choose to see it in a positive light, and we can choose to see it less favourably. Secondly, we can take action to make each day what we want it to be. Importantly, both are easier said than done.

If your days are the adventures that you want them to be, carry on doing what you’re doing. If, however, you want your days to become the adventure you want them to be, now is the time to make changes. Crucially, there are things that we can do to shift our mindset and make our days become the days we want them to be.

A firework display, celebrating.Take time each day to celebrate what has gone well, no matter how big or small. From the lovely cup of tea, to the helpful shop assistant and that work that you did complete, they’re all successes. The more you do it, the more you see, and over time your focus and, therefore, your mindset shift. Additionally, take time to establish what is working for you and what could be better. Consider what changes you can make, and then take the next step.

If you can do it, do it now. If you’re not sure, book a free initial consultation here, and then take the next step. You know that you can do it, and you know that it makes sense, don’t you?
