5 steps towards being successful!

5 steps towards being successful!

When it comes to the key to success, we have a lot of key words we can search on the internet and a lot of books with promising titles which we can read. There are waaaaay too many sources. You are not able anymore to pick what’s wright and what is wrong. I found a recipe. You only need to follow one big rule and you must take the five steps below.

It is all about our mind:

Every day we have about 60,000 thoughts and did you know that 80% of these thoughts are about the past. And now the shocking part: There are only 1-2% positive thoughts. Well, that´s not a lot!

Yes, we can and yes, we will, are the words of the very first black American president said. Mr. Barack Obama is a good example that positive thinking can get you everywhere. You can change the journey of your life now. Just like me or Barack 😊

In this article I talk about how I mastered a half-marathon.

My 5 steps to positive mindset

I was never very athletic and neither did I do sports as consistently as others. One day a friend of mine asked me to run a half-marathon with her. “I can do this!” That was my first thought. I believe you can do everything you like to do!

 If you were in that situation and you would have said no… I can give you one tip: Change your thoughts quickly: REPLACE YOUR NEGATIVE THOUGTS WITH A POSITIVE MINDSET!

1st Step: Define your goal!

In my case the goal was quite clear: to run a half marathon (21 km) in 1 hour and 30 minutes. We googled for a 12-week-training-plan. You have to believe that you can succeed. I wouldn´t have chosen a marathon with 42 km in 12 weeks. I am no sporting ace. YOU DEFINE A REACHABLE GOAL AND PLAN STEP BY STEP.

2nd Step: Think outside the box – don´t think you are ordinary

I have to say it wasn`t easy. I was working 32 hours a week, I was a mother of a 3-year-old boy, and I met friends as well.  This aim was time consuming and it took a lot of energy of me. YOU HAVE TO VISUAZILE A SUCCESSFUL BUT REACHABLE OUTCOME. Otherwise, you wouldn´t be able to take that much pressure.

3rd Step: always stay positive

First the training worked out, but then in the middle of the training I was always hungry, thirsty, and even I couldn´t stand my bad mood anymore. A doctor said, it was a lack of vitamins. So, I had to take these vitamin pills to get better and kept running. I didn´t give up and you don´t have to give up either! YOUR POSITIVE THINKING WILL LEAD TO POSITIVE THOUGTHS AND TAKE ACTIONS TOWARD YOUR GOALS.

4th Step: Do ask for help and go on

I asked my friend for help to stay motivated. Alone I probably would have given up and would have had no drive anymore. That was the reason why we were always running together. I had to go on and remind myself every day- why the hell I agreed to that. IN BAD MOMENTS: DO ASK FOR HELP. YOU DON´T HAVE TO BE ASHAMED. POSITIVE THOUGHTS CAN ALWAYS BE SHARED.

5th Step: SUCCESS

As you can see, I really did. After this run, I ate a lot of noodles, I think twice the noodles I normally do. Next year I might beat my time. I still want to improve. You shouldn´t take the positive thinking for granted! Remember they are only 1-2% of your mindset.

DON’T BURY YOUR HEAD IN THE SAND. Do what you want and when you want. Don´t give your negative thoughts the space in your head. Replace them with positive ones and be proud of what you did. And last but not least ENYJOY YOUR SUCCESS.
