Personal Development: The Moment You Get It
Hey, hey! Coach Maia here….
This morning I woke up alive. I have been to a lot of personal development all around the world. The difference in this one is that my forum leader started out saying this…
“You are perfect as you are.”
Can you imagine the skepticism I felt???! Even though this is my go-to motivation for you!! “You are strong. That strength is inside of you.” That’s what I say.
I also say, “DO YOU and that’s enough.” I have literally built the WorX on this statement.
Yes, I believe it when I say it to YOU. But now I REALLY BELIEVE it! You and me. WE have everything we need inside of us to achieve greatness.
Usually, I leave a event with a MILE to do list, pages and pages of notes, and I get to work the next few days…
only to lose the fire… and not accomplish what I was meant to do.
Because the BS in my life was still there.
But not today.
Here’s the difference and the answer I was searching for conference after conference to the questions…. HOW do I become a better mom, business owner, leader, and friend?
Drum roll please…. the simple answer. I don’t need to change. I just need to be more of ME!
WHAT!!!! Hold the phone. I spent 3 days away from my family (so worth it by the way) … only to learn to DO YOU! (ps. That’s the number one rule at the WorX!!) Tears are literally running down my face right now because this was the epiphany and the action I took to FREE myself to be me!
One, I needed to free myself of all the baggage that was dragging me down.
- My father lived in the Philippines and TO ME he wasn’t available.
- My parents sent me away to the Philippines for a year and TO ME I was alone.
- My mom was a loyal wife and TO ME I felt disempowered.
- I was mentally and physically abused growing up and TO ME that left me broken.
- I had a stupid short boy hair cut in 5th grade and TO ME that was just wrong to do to young adult going to a new school and built up resentment, and more and more.
This was the noise I heard all the time. A broken record screeching in my head…. telling me I’m not good enough… I wasn’t meant to be loved… or a powerful leader! Hopefully, you can see the pattern where I went wrong.
ERRRRR…. (sound of brakes hitting the floor)!
Stuff happened. That’s it and TO ME… I let all that keep me from being who I am.
This is where you come in! The irony of all is I created the WorX to help reduce this noise for YOU! Sure…. we do fitness! Workout classes, right?!!!
At the end of the day…. I want YOU to know YOU matter and you the POWER to change your life is in you.
As your leader, I called my parents and owned up to my stuff and I let them know of a new possibility to create a real family NOW. I called my husband, my sister… I am WorXing on the rest of my family. I called my most of my staff so far and friends closest to me and got real with them!
I am still making phone calls. LOL!
and don’t think I’m not thinking of YOU! That’s why I wrote this. In the past, I always WANT to write you and share with you ME…
I hope you can understand why I struggled to do it. I am my word so you will hear from me again.
Take action in your life. Do you! And let’s get to WorX!
Hugs and high Fives,
My personal development
Tips on personal development
What a weekend that was! You went out, you ate and drank and had a blast! And now the fun is over and the consequences are setting in…you feel terrible. You woke up with a headache, an overall feeling of bloating and a sluggishness that you can’t shake.
It’s time to undo the damage brought on from that epic weekend. Here’s how…
- No More Junk! It may sound obvious, but the first step to recovering from all that fun you had is to stop the damage. No more naughty foods. No more alcohol.
When you are vacationing or partying it’s easy to remove your mindful eating and drinking mechanism, and to replace it with the anything-goes mindset. This makes sense for party-mode, but once you come back home and get back to real life it’s important to firmly put an end to the junk food and calorie-laden beverages. If you don’t then your weekend diet may continue into your week, resulting in tons of extra calories that quickly add up in unwanted pounds.
- Flush Your System. For the next 48 hours your main mission is to drink as much water as possible.
All of those poor food and drink choices result in dehydration, which manifests in a pounding headache and a feeling of sluggishness. Plan to sip on water throughout the next two days, adding in fresh sliced fruit, cucumbers, mint or basil to add a refreshing and rewarding flavor.
- Get Some Rest. End the party or vaycay Sunday afternoon so that you can get into bed early in preparation for the week ahead.
It may not sound super exciting to plan an early-to-bed night at the end of your weekend but, come Monday morning, you will be functioning much better with a little rest under your belt. Plan to get to bed early the next couple of days as well, and fit in a nap if possible.
- Eat Cleansing Foods. You’ve stopped eating junk, now fill your diet with small light meals consisting of fiber and a serving of protein. Stick with only whole foods for the next 48 hours.
Fruits and fresh veggies should make up the bulk of your calories as you recover. Asparagus, leafy greens, citrus fruits, and raw veggies are all wonderful items to enjoy in addition to high quality, low fat protein.
- Avoid Going Extreme. Yes, you ate and drank a LOT this weekend, but swinging the pendulum too far in the other direction isn’t actually going to help. Overcompensation is rarely a winning idea.
Fight the urge to skip meals or to over-exercise in response to your indulgences. Going from one extreme to the other creates a bad cycle that leaves you feeling even more tired. In addition, taking your body from feast to famine will actually make you more prone for fat storage.
Getting and staying in great shape will not only help you bounce back from the weekend faster, it will also help you achieve healthy habits that will stick with you even as you party and vacation.
