One thing that I have learned as an adult and what I continue to learn is that your mindset is everything. I don’t think that we truly grasp just how powerful our thoughts can be over our lives. As we started our journey into 2017, I made a resolution to myself that I would make a conscious effort to grow mentally and spiritually first as well as financially, personally and so on. The reason that I put this at the top of my list is because I am realizing more and more that the way we see ourselves and the way we see the world greatly influences our decisions. And while it is perfectly fine to have aspirations to become more healthy, to travel more, to become more financially secure, if you don’t have the mental capacity to KNOW that these things are not only possible but attainable, you may never reach the goals that you are seeking. It all starts with your thoughts.
That’s why I love this sweatshirt from Gap Factory. Mind over matter! So simple, yet so true. Your mind is your greatest strength and your most valuable asset but it requires constant attention. Affirmations, confirmations and positive thoughts can help you achieve your goals more than anything else can. It is within your power!
And this does not just apply to getting fit, although a cute workout outfit never hurt anybody. That’s why I paired my graphic sweatshirt with these bright pink leggings because I want to live a colorful life! One that is bold and not afraid to stand out. Plus, bright workout gear always helps motivate me to get out there and get active.
So this year, exercise your mind as well as your body and live the best life that you can. Your dreams are achievable. Mind over matter!
