Let your setback be your comeback

Today I want to encourage you to have the mindset of a champion and a conqueror. After listening to a video clip today “UNBROKEN” a few things came to mind that I want to share with you. We all go through our own battles in life and everything isn’t always as easy and perfect as it seems. Somewhere someone might be going through a tough time or just need a word of encouragement facing a difficult time. I strongly believe that there is no better exercise for your heart than to reach down to others and lift them up, and this is the reason for posting today.

I want to encourage you today to have the confidence to follow your heart <3. It is time for you to start believing in yourself again. No matter how small or how big the challenge I want to encourage you to #ChallengeYourself. In life, in work, in your relationships, with your goals but most of all your personal life. For once focus on YOUrself.  Don’t let the noise of others opinions drown your inner voice. Find out what it is that you LOVE and have the courage to follow your heart <3. You will have some ups and downs and that is normal and part of this amazing journey. Don’t allow a setback to be the reason to give up. Let your setback be the platform of your comeback, you will be stronger if you learn from it! Most give up on themselves way to soon or just before the breakthrough. Don’t let your current situation derail your focus on the life that is destined for YOU.

YOU are unique, fearfully and wonderfully made.

The real challenge of growth mentally, spiritually and emotionally comes when you get knocked down. It takes courage to get back up when life knocks you down but it will be worth it.

Don’t stand still at the could haves and the would haves if it should have, it would have…

Fear kills hope, fear kills passion and I want to encourage you to step out of your comfort zone, break down the boundaries of {I can’t} that is so set in your mind and start living YOUR LIFE, YOUR JOURNEY, YOUR WAY.

STOP fearing and start dreaming. Don’t let your emotions rule you it is time to take charge over your emotions and thoughts, you can discipline your emotions.  So the next time fear comes knocking at your door you better not open…Before you speak something negative think about it and speak positive!

replace fear

Proverbs 18:21 Amplified Bible (AMP)
21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and they who indulge in it shall eat the fruit of it [for death or life].

Change is NOT EASY if it was everybody would do it BUT I’m telling you if you take control YOU WILL MAKE IT. You will be stronger & better. Respect yourself enough to walk away from anything that no longer serves you, grows you or make you happy. You will value your worth and respect yourself enough to live life with passion & drive.

Forget about yesterday come on people – It is NOW that matters, NOW NOW NOW!!!

You can – you will – You are a conqueror…LIVE YOUR LIFE PASSIONATELY

Believe in yourself…

Whoop whoop a new day, a new mind, new beginnings, and one step closer to a new you…

Did you fall of the wagon a bit??Please don’t feel condemned, get back up and focus ahead. Don’t let your failures keep you from reaching your best!

Ladies (and gents 😉 how was your day? How are things going with your challenge? Are you still on track and motivated towards your end goal. I just realized again today how big of a need there is out there for people to live a healthier lifestyle or to look and feel great as a person. It is in reach for you to become the best you could be…By the right amount of dedication, support and motivation you can change so many things.

It is human to struggle or to sometimes feel depressed but that is where you need friends or family to help pick you up and carry you towards the finish line.

I’m talking about these things for I have been there and I know it can get difficult at times…

If I close my eyes I can remember each feeling that I felt being fat, without confidence, bloated, depressed, tired and so the list can go on…

Quick reminder this is me a few weeks/months ago 18 August 2011. This is one of the better pics that I chose you should see from the side. When looking at this I remember the way I felt inside…

I know some might think…ahhhh she’s not that fat, well let me tell you I felt exactly like a person who is 30kg over weight. I went through the same emotions, difficulties etc…

Whether you are 5kg overweight or 15kg, we all go through some of the same emotions and feelings etc.

This was me 12 weeks later 10 November 2011…

This is now the latest pic taken on the new years weekend…Obviously I hold my breath to show some abs ;-)­­

What am I trying to say? I don’t want to show of on a photograph but I want you to realize that YOU CAN achieve your goals…I wish I could motivate each and everyone visiting this blog. Or those going through a bad patch in life — it will be ok! You don’t have to look like a super model in 1 week. You took months to get where you’re at so give your body the time to adjust and transform. Whatever challenge you are on make it sustainable and let it become a lifestyle.

Don’t see it as a diet or another 12 week challenge…See it as a lifestyle. I’m on week 2 of the LiveFit trainer (you can download it under LiveFit). I’m not doing another challenge to see how much more weight I can lose, I’m doing it because I believe I can be in even better shape and more healthy. I’m doing it because I love working out and to keep myself challenged on a training program etc.         Do I really want to compete in the Fitness industry — No I actually don’t want to! I was approached by so many people asking me about doing competitions etc that I got so confused at one point not knowing what I want to do, and when I sat down really thinking about it I realized it is not me, I don’t want to…Why must I put so much pressure on something I enjoy doing so much, and take the fun out of it?? Maybe I will be in such good shape by April/August that I will compete who knows? But I don’t have to set a competition date for myself to keep me motivated to enjoy a healthy lifestyle.

I’m at a point in my life where I want to enjoy every single thing I do. To live life passionately and to appreciate every single day like it is a gift from God.

To reach, inspire, to help and to motivate people…That was and is my goal.

Please comment below if this makes any sense…Sometimes it feels as if I’m blogging for myself, but I realized that is also ok! If my words can touch or encourage 1 out of the 11 000 blog visitors then my goals are achieved!

Be positive, be strong, and believe in yourself!

You ABSOLUTELY do have the power to change and YOU are beautiful no matter what!
