REFOCUS CHALLENGE WEEK 4 - WOMAN OF YOUR WORD
We have made it to Week 4 of the Refocus Challenge! This week we will focus on staying true to our word and speaking life into ourselves.
Be A Woman of Your Word - How, Sway? How? Simple. When you say your going to do something - Do it. Schedule it in and get it done. When you say your not going to do it - Don't do it. Stay focus on your goals and priorities with yourself and with others. If your not sure you want to do something - simply say, "let me think about it" or "I'll let you know". However, be sure to follow up with that person. I have over committed myself so many times in the past because I was afraid to hurt someone's feelings by saying no. In the end, I'm burnt out and I fail to succeed on my priorities. Don't over commit. Your word and actions are your legacy.
This is one of my favorite quotes to get shit done when I don't "feel" like it.
You can’t get much done in life if you only work on the days you feel good. – Jerry West
Speak Life Into Yourself – Again, How Sway? How? Simple. Be your biggest cheerleader! You should root for yourself daily! Everyday we make so many choices that will lead us on the right path or the wrong path. Be mindful of every choice and cheer for yourself when you make good decisions. When you make not-so-good decisions be mindful of that and have grace with yourself, but, be sure to create a game plan to avoid making the same bad decision twice. Live a life without doubt and fear. Sometimes you have to encourage yourself, Nah! You ALWAYS have to encourage yourself! Every day, week and month take a few moments to jot down what made you proud of yourself. It could be something simple, like you didn't roll your eyes at your boss - or - it could be, you worked out 4 days that week!
My favorite quote to remind me to cheer for myself throughout the day.
Don’t dig up in doubt what you planted in faith – Elizabeth Elliot
