Your primary objective in your daily routine should be to look out for yourself. You aren’t selfish for doing so. You will be in the best possible shape to take on the challenges life throws at you.  

SELF-CARE

“You owe yourself one hour a day of self-maintenance. It can include reading, writing, yoga, exercise, dancing, meditation, painting, or whatever, but you owe it to yourself. One hour, 1/24 of your day. That is less than 5%. It matters, it really does.” – Sarah Brassard

The most extraordinary measure of a person’s real character is their ability to bounce back from adversity. If you can take a beating and still keep on ticking, you are a badass!

TRUE GRIT

One of the key takeaways from the pandemic is that we need to put ourselves first. We need to prioritize our mental health, and we need to put the habits that do not serve us into the trash can; we need to make new friends that inspire us, not weigh us down. We need to focus on living our life to the fullest, which means appreciating even the tiniest things that put a smile on our face.

YOUR FIRST

The good times, the bad times, the ugly times. Never forget those because you are a product of the life you have lived. Today, you are better, wiser and smarter because you endured.

ENDURANCE

Don’t wait for tomorrow, don’t wait for next week, don’t wait for next month, don’t wait for next year. If you want to change your life, do it now. You are the captain of your destiny.

NOW

“There is never time in the future in which we will work out our salvation. The challenge is in the moment; the time is always now.” – James Baldwin

Like in American Football, a team fights for the ground they make for every yard of play, you should not focus on the end product in your life. Instead, take small incremental steps to improve yourself in your life and at work, to get rid of the habits that hold you back, and making the right decisions in the moments that matter.

SMALL STEPS

Mistakes happen like it or not. It’s a part of life. It’s what makes us human. What is not right though is people’s inability to say sorry when they’ve messed up. That creates even more anger and frustration for the other person. Be mindful and start saying sorry if you want to build bridges, and let your ego sleep.

SORRY

“Being able to say ‘I am sorry’ makes a difference in your life. It is the key that opens the cage of guilt.” – Nansia Movidi
