Oh how long it’s been since writing a little something-something. As always life has been hectic, kinda, and well the desire to write hasn’t been all that strong tbh.
It’s the dreaded Sunday evening, ahead of a whole weeks worth of work. I HATE looking forward, especially when the following weekend looks so god damn far away.
On the other hand, I am excited to get back to work and smash this coming week, just like the last.
I haven’t spoken about my new job at all, but here’s a little knowledge. I’m working in media sales. Never done it, but have been in sales….of property. Not so similar at all, but I was eager to give it a go. I have seen many build a successful career from it, and looking towards the future, I wanted a piece of it.
3 months in and it’s been bloody tough. Don’t ever think media sales is easy because it’s not. It’s dog eat dog world and it’s easy to think it will never be good. I haven’t hit target yet and well time is ticking.
HOWEVER, since hitting a low low point a couple of weeks ago, worrying about what will be, I have adapted my state of mind, my attitude and so my work.
And I am SMASHING it! I’m top of the board and lovvvingggg it. I am excited for the next week and what it will entail.
I have always been a worrier. Worrying about things I can change, and things I can’t. Thinking days, weeks even months ahead. Focusing so much so on what could happen in the distant future, I forget the impact it’s having on the current day. Whilst I don’t feel like it is, it impacts everything.
This is what was happening in my job, at home and in my relationships.
I was tight, emotional and stressed beyond belief. I made myself sick, like physically sick with worry and panic.
Was I helping the situation I was worrying about? Was I changing the situation for the better?
And nope again.
But as soon as my state of mind changed, I did.
Positive mental attitude is a beautiful thing and can make the world of difference. I don’t feel as worried as before, and I feel far more relaxed. I don’t remember feeling this chilled out and I have stunned myself in situations where before I would have been beside myself in panic, worry and sheer fear of the future.
I believe in myself to make the right decisions and the best intentions. I know I can whatever I try my best to do, and as long as I do that, stay honest and true to myself and those around me, what will be will be and there is nothing more that could have been done about it.
We can all beat ourselves up about past decisions and the impact it’s had on us, but what’s the point. Literally, what is the point? Live in the now, look at what you’re doing and focus on what you want. Believe in yourself and your capabilities. Nothing is out of reach and what will be will be. Try your hardest and give it your all, and you will always know there was nothing more you could have done.
I feel I am rambling.
This post has gone on for long enough.
Gavin and Stacey in bed before a week of smashing targets and giving it my all.
I have loved exploring positive mental attitude and state of mind. I believe so many overlook its capability of changing so many aspects of your life. Be sure to know, I will look into this more on another blog post in the near future.
