The same thing happens after we do the ‘latest seminar’.
Or a few days after we get ‘pumped’ up by the next great ‘motivational speaker’
or the latest inspirational dvd.This is because mental habits take some time to change.
And to me the answer is our mindset, which ultimately affects our attitude
which determines our behaviour and actions.I ran a workshop for some retail staff last week about the
power of your mindset in sales and after we’d finished one of them said to me:
“I never realised that I have control over my mindset. It’s really down
to what I allow myself to play in my head. And if what’s in my head
is making me feel bad, it’s up to me to change it.”
Which is very true.
But there’s also very simple ways to boost your mindset, without
a few renditions ‘eye of the tiger’….:) )
– Exercise (healthy body, healthy mind etc. etc.- even going for a walk close to nature helps)
– Meet up with friends and have a laugh
– Read something inspirational (that’s why I started these weekly emails)
– Stop listening or watching the news for a while – listen to lyric fm or something similar for a change.
