Discipline is essential when working toward a goal. Whether you’re training for your first marathon, working towards a promotion at work or trying to spend more quality time with your partner and family, you have a lot on your plate. But as much as you’re committed to achieving your goal, it can be easy to become burnt out by all you’re trying to accomplish. The problem isn’t that you need to pick an objective that involves less work, it’s that you ought to be incorporating habits that bring joy into your life.
It’s up to you to pursue positive habits instead of letting yourself succumb to feeling burnt out, and ultimately, giving up on your goal altogether. There are a number of small things you can be doing every day to incorporate joyful habits into your daily life.
Take a break
The first step is realizing that you can’t work 24/7. Everyone needs breaks. Breaks can be mental or physical, like reading, listening to a podcast or exercising. By allowing yourself to take regular breaks, not only will you enjoy some downtime, but you’ll return to your workload with more drive and focus. So take time to incorporate joyful habits into your week — even if you have just 10 minutes to spare, you’ll feel more ready to tackle your goals once the break’s concluded.
Are you able to take a longer break? Attend events that fuel your passion, like Unleash the Power Within. UPW is a multi-day event that will require some attendees to take time off work, but by committing to learning how to develop healthy habits that help you reach your goals at the event, you can return to your everyday life feeling ready to conquer your objectives.
Appreciate quality time
How are you spending time with your loved ones? Are you truly enjoying their company or are you distracted by answering work emails or responding to texts? Make being fully present with the ones you love a joyful habit. Understand that the reason you’re working so hard is because you want to spend more time with the people you love — be it that you want to provide for your family or have the finances you need to go on vacations with friends. Knowing the deeper reasoning behind your goal will make you appreciate this time even more.
At Unleash the Power Within, you’ll learn that having clarity in your purpose is essential. Once you know why you’re driven to work so hard, and how it relates to the special people in your life, you’ll feel even more compelled to succeed.
Do what you love
Trying to develop new habits is difficult. Trying to develop new habits you hate is impossible. Make sure your goals, and your habits, are rooted in something you deeply care about. If you’re passionate about your work and enjoy pursuing your goal, this joy will spill into other areas of your life, too. When you’re not working, make sure that your calendar is well-rounded with activities you love. Balance out work with things you enjoy, like spending time with your kids or hiking outdoors. Not sure where to begin? Firewalking can help you to realize what makes you truly happy. After attending UPW and completing the Tony Robbins firewalk, you’ll return to your daily life with a renewed sense of purpose, passion and confidence that you’re working toward something that makes you joyful.
As Tony Robbins says, “At any moment, the decision you make can change the course of your life forever.” Are you ready for a change? Are you prepared to work toward a future that makes you feel joyful? Find your ultimate purpose and learn how to create healthy habits to help you reach your goal at Unleash the Power Within.
