What makes you feel alive?

What motivates you?

I recently read in a news article that there was a record amount of drug overdoses in the United States in 2020, largely due to the stress we experienced during the pandemic.  This deeply saddens me and I wanted to bring a more positive vibe to the #CJJblog this week.  Here are some ideas that help get me excited and feel alive. Enjoy!

  • Passion.  What are you passionate about?  How can you turn your passion into making a living?  Find a way.  For me, I am passionate about basketball and helping others, so I became a high school basketball coach and now a professional speaker.  What about you?
  • 30/60/90 days. Create challenges for yourself in increments.  Do you want to lose 30 lbs by the end of the year?  Start by setting a goal of losing 5 lbs in the next 30 days.
  • Sleep routine. Be consistent with your sleep.  You may feel sluggish and overtired during the day if you fail to keep a consistent sleep routine.  Do you consistently sleep 7-8 hours each night?
  • Habit assessment. Keep a journal of your daily habits for one week and assess your actions.  What are you doing?  Who are you communicating with?  You may have habits that you didn’t even realize.
  • Physical assessment. Track your physical actions for three weeks and assess them.  What are you eating?  How often do you exercise?  Are you meditating consistently?
  • Clarity.  Gain clarity on your goals and write them down.  You can then recite them to yourself in a mirror each morning.
  • Why? Do you have a personal mission statement?  Are you living it every day?
  • PAG.  Prayer, appreciation, and gratitude.  Are you doing these things every day?
  • Personal growth plan. Do you have one? Are you feeding your mind positive or negative ideas?
  • Help.  Be content with needing help or support from others.  Are you asking others for help when you need it?
  • Coaches.  You can seek a coach, mentor, or an accountability partner to help keep you on track.  Who do you rely on for accountability?
