It’s Monday morning, and Friday seems so far away! How am I going to get through the week?
It was an amazing weekend! You slept in on Saturday. The party with friends by the lake was great. You even completed a couple of home projects that you are really proud of. But, now – it’s over!
Monday has gotten such a bad name!
We drag ourselves out of bed - it’s the beginning of the work week. You start your Monday with a sigh and thoughts of the drudgery ahead take over. “Monday’s are such a drag.”
But what if you change YOUR thoughts?
You’re excited its Monday! It’s the beginning of a week of new ideas; new projects; new discoveries! You’re enthusiastic; excited to get the week started. It’s time to put our geniuses to work!
Whether Monday is a reminder to you that you are doing something that you don’t like, or you’re doing the thing you love, your attitude directs your performance, and you have a choice how you want to show up!
Your attitude on Monday morning directs your path for the entire week. If you choose to hate Monday’s, then you more than likely will not be very fond of the rest of the week. BUT, when Monday is viewed enthusiastically as a great beginning to a week of new projects, new ideas, great accomplishments, the week will start out on the right foot, and things will go much smoother.
These positive thoughts are followed by great actions. Even if you feel that you are in the wrong job, or you took on a project that seems beyond your scope, you won’t allow frustration to take over. We have the ability to know what steps we need to take to improve our performance when doubt starts creeping in.
Each day we have a choice – “how am I going to show up today?” And each day, our choice is: show up with more energy, focus and productivity. Each day we have the choice to live into our best selves - dismiss the feelings of overwhelm and bring our best attitude. We have the courage, confidence and the stamina we need to show up as our best selves.
We are bringing our A-Game!
