Hi team. In today's Weekly Reminder, I wanted to talk to you guys about trying something different, so you might have been wondering why hadn't I posted the Weekly Reminder for this week is because I wanted to try something different. So there are many reasons why we should try something different and not get stuck in the same patterns. One is if something's not working we need to try a different method, know?
00:00:22:37 - 00:00:46:32
Otherwise, we're just banging your head against a wall. There are literally so many ways to do one thing. Even making a sandwich or getting fit or building a business or getting A's in your uni degree. There's so, so many different ways. So we're probably stuck in this cycle where we're just trying one thing and maybe it works, but maybe there's a better method out there.
00:00:46:47 - 00:01:13:25
So obviously if something's not working, change it out. That's going to be easy. But the real challenge here is finding another area in your life where something you're doing is actually working well. You are seeing results. Don't stop what you're doing, keep that going, but also use this as an opportunity to try something new. So if you have a weight loss goal and you're going to the gym every day and you're seeing great results, why not throw in some different exercises while you're there?
00:01:13:26 - 00:01:35:18
I know when I go to the gym, I stick to the same machines all the time, which has its benefits but also my muscles are getting used to those those certain equipment pieces. So it is important to change things up. And even though I'm seeing positive results, if I continue using those same machines for years and years and years, my body will just stop growing in that area.
00:01:35:18 - 00:01:51:09
So this is all about challenging yourself. Whether you're saying the results or not to try something new, put it in the comments. Guys, what do you think you're going to challenge yourself with this week? What area of your life very interested to hear your thoughts on this one.
It’s time to switch things up!
Change is usually difficult because we get comfortable with how we are currently doing things.
But change is what a lot of us NEED in order to live the life we want.
There are 2 reasons why you should implement some sort of change in your life right now:
Things aren't going how you want
Things are going how you want
(so basically… this applies to everyone)
Changing things when things are not going as planned makes sense, but why change something when it’s already going well?
Well, life is always moving & changing around us. We sometimes can trick ourselves to believe that if we just keep doing the same thing we can slide through life just fine and not have to face any discomfort. But that is not the reality of things. Life is always challenging us and trying to level us up!
For example, when I go to the gym, I usually use the same equipment every time. It’s comfortable and I like that equipment, so I don’t explore the other machines. But if I continue to use the same equipment over and over, my body will stop building muscle and I will be FORCED to change my routine up or I’ll stop seeing results.
Here is your challenge for this week!
1. Pick an area in your life where things could be better
I bet you will have something that comes straight to mind - maybe you want to get into a relationship, earn more money, travel more or spend less time on your phone. Pick just 1 to focus on that is personal to you!
2. Pick an area in your life where things are going well
Where are you cruising along in life? Where do you want to level up? Maybe things are good right now, but would you want to see improvement here eventually? Choose just 1 thing to focus on here.
3. Change it up
Figure out what you are going to do differently in these areas. If you can measure / track your progress, even better!
Comment below with an area of your life that you are going to try something different in!
