They Don't Want You To Win #MondayMotivation by Abby Daniella

Webmaster

When you’re laughing at DJ Khaled’s snapchats but you realize they really DON'T want you to win….

He's helping you unlock the keys to success, but I’m here to inspire you to take practical steps!

Your 2016 should be filled with new strategies that get you to the finish line.

And knowing your steps to get there is a major key.

They don’t want you to win. 

Here are some of my biggest aha moments from 2015 that helped me grow the most:

- I realized that we can either get stuck in the rat race or create a better way for ourselves by learning from those who are 2 steps ahead of us. It's easy to get comfortable with how things "have always been" instead of seeking out new perspectives and opportunities in this fast growing world.

- I learned that the music game is not at all what you believe it is when you're on the outside of it. Its realities will have you questioning everything you thought to be true, but it's also a great lesson about what’s real vs what’s on the internet or what the media feeds us.

- When weighing having a 9 to 5 against risking it all for your goals, you have to give it some deep thought. You've got to have a plan and not just “wing it” because you can set yourself up for disaster if your mind isn't in the right place.

Here are three suggestions that will help carry you into your new year and inspire a few 'aha' moments in your own journey:

1) What's it going to cost you to NOT be doing what you love? How much money do you need to do what you love comfortably?

2) What challenges are in your way?

3) Take each challenge and write down one way you could reverse that obstacle into something you can overcome within the next three months.

You should now end up with some clarity on the next steps you can take to get closer to where you want to be. Think this might help you get out of your own way? Comment below with "I'm doing this" to let me know that I should keep an eye out for your next level up!

"New Year, New Me" by Abby Daniella #MondayMotivation

“New Year, New Me”

  By Abby Daniella

 

Annoying, right?

I’m sure you’re familiar with the “new year, new me” phrase.

It’s the thing everyone tweets on New Year’s Day and weeks before.

As you think back, wondering what you would've done better AND what your 2016 is looking like…

Maybe you're realizing that your year was pretty great.

Maybe you wouldn’t change a thing?

But let’s face it, that’s probably not the case.

Even if you accomplished a lot of your goals, could you have used some minor tweaking along the way?

Most of the time it’s not motivation that’s the problem, your system is either broken or flawed.

And you’re the only one that has the control to fix it.

Do you constantly dread a certain task or always find yourself stuck?

What's missing?

I hate when that happens, but I’ve learned it all comes down to rethinking your approach.

Sometimes we get comfortable in a certain pattern for so long we forget there's more than one way to get the job done!

First, reevaluate the ways you’ve been doing things.

Let the memes and tweets arrive as they may…

When you see a “new year, new me” post use that as your reminder to make a list of what you need to refocus on.

Your 2016 should be filled with new strategies to get to the finish line. Step-by-step.

Failure is a Part of Success by Abby Daniella #MondayMotivation

Failure Is A Part of Success

By Abby Daniella


 I'm about to ask you a bunch a questions to get you thinking, but first:

You've just taken a test and you’re anxious for the outcome.

Think back to high school where Mrs. ________ is about to hand you your grade.

Now, your best friend's got an A and you’re 100% sure you did, too.

But nope...

F

Marked in red; circled.

You're getting hot and you feel like the classroom is closing in on you.

"Wtf??? How did I...?

Maybe I should have...?

My mom is gonna..."

Life is a big test, bro! 

I know this just as much as you do.

And if you're not prepared for what's in front of you when you know it's coming, can you expect to be ready for the pop quiz?

But here's the thing:

Experiencing failure is, in my experience, one of the most important parts of life we should embrace more often. 

I struggle with this every day of my life, so I'm not anymore immune than you are.

We always hear our heroes say that failure comes with success. 

But somehow we're still surprised, devastated, and embarrassed when we FEEL it firsthand.

Michael Jordan, Oprah Winfrey, Steve Jobs and many more encounter countless failures along their unique paths.

So are WE going to be successful... or not? 

Are you going to let setbacks KEEP you in the back of the class?

Passion and hustle will help to keep your wheels turning, but what about yourpurpose?

Why are you doing what you're doing? 

Why are those things important to you in the first place? What do they MEAN? 

How is what you're doing today helping you to get closer to it all?

Or... are your wheels just spinning in place with no true direction in mind???

(You know this feeling)

There's no reason you can't put your name next to your heroes'.

If there is anything to be afraid of, be afraid of NOT trying.

Or turning into those people you see every day.

Those you know aren't living inside of their true happiness and are, unfortunately, just going through the motions because they settled.

Where will you be in 5 years?

Hold that image in your mind. 

What are you doing today to make that a reality?

Failure allows you to learn, go back to the drawing board, and get it right the next time. Or at least get closer.

Taking an L is part of the journey you just can’t avoid it. So fail fast. 

Fail often. 

You'll grow fast. 

Faster than those who are on the sidelines, not even trying.

How will YOU react next time failure slaps you in the face?

Quit... or slap back?

Remember…

There is no success without failure. 

And your most embarrassing failures will probably teach you more than your biggest successes!

Be So Good They Can't Ignore You By Abby Daniella

Be So Good They Can't Ignore You

By Abby Daniella


Yup, Steve Martin said it best.

Develop your skills, make sure people can't overlook you, and kill the game.

You enter the room and people want to know who YOU are. There's something about your aura.

Why? Because you've mastered your craft to the point where folks can’t help but notice. And you know it.

Now they’re interested in your why’s and how’s. You didn't have to go to them. THEY come to you!

But you have to figure out what your calling is, right? 

You've got to learn everything about what it is you're doing. Inside and out.

No shortcuts, all hustle.

Don't worry about the ones who say you’re dreaming too big. Remember, you’re not here for them.

Who are you here for? 

What's your definition of 'great'? 

Are you living up to it for yourself and them? 

It's okay if you’re not; as long as you're heading in the right direction each day.

Don’t be afraid to stand out and flex every inch of your dopeness.
