The start of a new week means different things depending on your perspective. Some people start their Monday dreading going to work, unhappy with where they may be in life, and unmotivated. Another way to start the week is to look at the opportunities to change your life for the better or be appreciative of how well things are going and excitement for what may be to come. Regardless of your perspective, each day you have a chance to reinvent your life.
In the past, I would dread Mondays by Sunday night. I would think how much I didn’t feel like going to work and fantasize of my dream career. When I thought this way, my life seemed to be stuck in a rut. It was an endless cycle of uninspired frustration with no end in sight. How could I shift my mindset? How could I be inspired and happy about the start of the week as opposed to depressed about going to work in the morning?
One way to shift your mindset is to occupy your mind. Get your mind busy and focused on your own personal goals that you don’t have time to be upset about the things you may not like in your life. Start to identify the accomplishments that make your heart smile. Think about what you really want to do and start planning on how you’re going to get there. When you get busy on your goals, your mindset no longer has time to be negative because you will be working towards your goals.
Another way to shift your mindset is to take on a mindset of gratitude. There is always something to be grateful for and the more you practice thinking about the things that are going well in your life, you have less time to think about the things you don’t like. Also, focusing on gratitude sends vibrations to the universe that you like the good things and you want to keep those coming. You want to continue to feel those gracious moments and you appreciate what is going well. Again, maintaining this mindset helps you not only change your mindset but also put you on the path to reinventing your life. Hopefully, you are starting to see the pattern here. First step to reinventing your life is to change your mindset, identify goals, get a plan in place to achieve those goals and finally, get to work. Doing all these things helps you reinvent your life. It will start you on a path to happiness because you will be pursuing your goals. It is not easy but it is a journey. Remember to enjoy the journey along the way because happiness is a choice, not an automatic occurrence.
