Manufacture Your Day by BEING POSITIVE

It is impossible to get positive results with a negative mind.

How do you deal with your negative self-talk?

In your personal and in your professional life, you have to be able to paint a positive picture of the future. If you can see it in your mind, you have started the process of making it a reality. 

Just keep practicing!

Manufacture Your Day by CHANGING THE WAY YOU LOOK AT THINGS

Stop. Think. Breathe.

This can be a huge eye opener if you allow it to be. Remember, the teacher always comes when you are ready. Are you?

Manufacture Your Day by LIVING LIFE WITH PASSION

If you are the kind of person who likes to think and talk in terms of “Happy Hump Day” and “TGIF” (thank god it’s Friday), I encourage you to think again.

How does it serve you if you just try to survive the week, and live for the weekend only? Isn’t this a huge waste of the other 5 days? Why are you getting mentally so worn out?

Time to rethink your life. Make the best of every day and live life with passion.

Manufacture Your Day by EXERCISING

One of the greatest stress management tools is exercise.

It has been said that emotion is created by motion. In other words, as soon as you start moving, you will feel better if you have a down day. Walk, run, swim, cycle, dance, ski, snowboard, skate, snowshoeing, cross country skiing, play (table) tennis, squash or racket ball, play a team sport, go to the gym, go to yoga….. It doesn’t matter what you choose but it is important to to find a workout that you love doing. 

You will feel better. You will have more energy. You will be able to manage your weight easier. You will lead a more balanced and happier life.

Go for it. You are so worth it!

Manufacture Your Day by BEING CONFIDENT

Sometimes we are wrong. Don’t worry, it’s always good to admit it.

This is what confident people do.

Manufacture Your Day by WORKING THROUGH TOUGH TIMES

Tough times never last. Just make sure to be resourceful.

The reward will be worth it.

Manufacture Your Day by GIVING IT ALL YOU GOT

Whatever you are working on, either you are in or out. It’s all about your effort.

Give it all you got, today and every day.

Manufacture Your Day by DEVELOPING A GROWTH MINDSET

If you like to read, I can really recommend the book “Mindset: The New Psychology of Success” by Dr. Carol Dweck.

You will shift your mindset from failing to learning and growing. Priceless!

Manufacture Your Day by TRYING AND TRYING AND TRYING

A very common phrase these days is “I know.” Many people say that they know. The crazy thing is that more often than not, they never get started.

If you want to try something new, give it a shot. If you don’t try, you will never know if it would have worked.

Manufacture Your Day by VISUALIZING

In the world of sports every athlete knows to visualize the perfect outcome before they play the actual game. The power of the mind matters. It matters a lot.

Why don’t we envision the perfect outcome before….

  • we go into a meeting?
  • we engage in a difficult conversation?
  • we give constructive feedback to one of our employees?
  • we speak to a possible client?

You have to see it first to make it happen. Try it. It works!
