Stamina builds patience

In a fast-paced generation, patience is easily lost throughout the winding moments of the day. Whether it may be waiting in line or how slow your cellular data is (even with 4G), it’s moments like these where we need patience the most. This is why it is crucial to build up our stamina. As we adjust ourselves to the fast-motion picture that happens to be our lives, we shouldn’t be piling more stress into lives. Instead, we should be able to control our stress and channel it into inner peace. Here are some tips to build your stamina:

The fast-pace world as we know it.

1.  Self-Confidence

Self-confidence is considered one of the most important mental characteristic to have. It’s through positive thoughts one can build their self-confidence. By repeatedly telling yourself positive things before a triathlon, you’ll be to finish the race you trained so hard for. Instead of saying “I’ll never be able to…” say to yourself “I will be able to…” By invading your negative thoughts with positive ones, your mentality will eventually adjust itself to the positive thoughts. This will provide a greater output on how you carry yourself.

2. Picture Perfect

Before a big event, picture a past accomplishment or picture how you would want the event to go. This process gives yourself a mental rehearsal, which induces a sense of readiness. No one likes to start off feeling unprepared, especially when you worked so hard for it! Also, picturing past accomplishments is said to make you feel happy which can be traced back to the release of endorphins. This is similar to the first tip but uses a visualization technique.

3. Run a Marathon

Or any race! Put yourself in a race that demands highly of your body. The training is one thing: a process that includes intense work outs that test your determination and strength. It’s also another thing when you are actually in the race. Despite all the training, you’re bound to get tired to the point of giving up. This is ultimate test determining whether you want to finish the race or quit the race. All in all, it’s a win-win situation. You may not have won the race, but you won through the accomplishment of your feat.

By following these three quotas, you will have a different outlook on your life and greater control on your mind and body. Maybe not do all three at once, but give at least one of them a try. You’ll be surprised at what  you, yourself is capable of doing.

Follow these tips to feel like Rocky

Confidence Motivation and more Confidence

Whenever i try to do something or get something done, i often find myself having no desire to complete the task at hand. It’s usually either because i’m too lazy to do it or because I’ve lost sight on the bigger picture, or even worse i don’t think i can achieve that big picture. Recently i saw Rocky for the first time and it really teaches people something about the human’s way of never giving up. I for one am not a huge fan of violence in any way, but i usually let it slide when its a movie that’s just really, really good.

First off, this movie really touches on the whole push yourself until you can’t push yourself anymore, and then keep going. I absolutely love an underdog story and it always reminds me of how i need to get up and get into gear because no matter what it is i’m trying to do, i need to give it 110% or it won’t be worth it. Yet, with all this, i can’t do anything without confidence. Confidence is the number one thing someone needs to do anything, ANYTHING. Without confidence you’re just doing the motions and hoping it will be enough. NO! You have to look at yourself in the mirror or your front camera and say,”Hey, it sucks sometimes how people think of you, or how you think of you, but get this ish done because that’s what needs to happen and you deserve to have this be amazing.” Maybe not that detailed but for the love of God tell yourself you can do it! And if you can’t tell yourself or believe yourself, then find someone who will! Surround yourself with people who love you unconditionally and won’t forget to tell you, just be sure you’re listening. “People who mind don’t matter and people who matter don’t mind” I tell myself that it has helped me make so many decisions in life that would have ultimately made me a much sadder person had i not reminded myself.

 

What’s that? You have confidence but you don’t see a point? Is it laziness? Maybe, but if that’s the case go outside and take a run or hurry up and finish binge watching that T.V series. All in all you need some good old fashion motivation. Trust me i get it, if there’s no point then, well what’s the point. There always is a point though, always, some are just harder to find that others. Get up and find something that really moves you, something that bothers you so much you feel the need to do something about it. And for please let it be your reasons, not someone else’s’ because that’s just borrowing someone’s confidence and you gotta build up yourself to say i’m doing this for me and for whatever reasons i have because that’s that, so stand out of my way or help. Rocky heard everyone saying how stupid it is for him to be doing this, and how its just a joke, but he said i’m training and competing for me because i have something to prove, and not only to everyone else but to myself. That’s amazing to me, and an obvious reason as to why this movie is so memorable.

Whatever it is you’re trying to do i wish you luck, because it will be difficult and you might not get the results you wanted, but no matter what you did it the way you wanted to and hey, you did something!
