Evening! Today brings around day 9 of this 30 day mind and body challenge.
This evening I went to dinner with Melbourne Victory at the Football Federation Victoria Gold Medal Dinner. It’s a smaller version of what the AFL call the Brownlow Medal. I took the day off as a long weekend, to get myself looking all pretty and things for the evening. Got my hair curled, makeup done and wore this amazing dress. I felt pretty.
Today was all about visualizing your dreams and goals again but this time as a whole and not just about your body. Where do you want to do in life; what do you want to do; do you have term goals that you are currently working towards?
What is my greatest dream? This one was so easy for me, I could say it in my sleep!
I want to attend the 2022 FIFA World Cup. Dream BIG! You never know how far you can go until you try.
So that’s the end goal. What’s the plan? I’m still working on it.. However, I have now completed my Event Management Diploma, I’ve been volunteering non-stop with major sporting clubs like Melbourne Victory and I just need 1 person to believe in me enough to give me a go in a different career.
This is a huge long-term goal – 6 years from now. I have no idea what I am doing next week but hopefully, it’s something that will make this dream a little bit closer and a little more real.
#Footballisforever. As I have said many many times, football is my freedom and I will stop at nothing to get where I want to be. What are your biggest hopes, dreams and goals?Think about that.
Today our challenge was visualize what we wanted to achieve in this challenge and beyond. If you don’t have dreams and aspirations, you will struggle to move forward in life. It’s that simple. Everyone has dreams. Whether it’s to have the perfect job, perfect husband or perfect abs.
Today it was all about the abs for me. The rest of my body is shaping up real nice! (Even if I do say so myself) I want them and I know how to achieve them. However, I currently am not committed enough in my eating to get them. It’s as simple as that. Abs are made in the kitchen and my kitchen ain’t making abs at the moment.
I’ve got to get my brain into some serious “game face” mode and think about food as fuel for my body and not just something for me to indulge in. I love food as much as the next person; I’m just not nourishing my body with the right food in order to achieve my goal. I’m working my ass off (literally!) and then I come home and destroy it by eating the wrong foods.
There aren’t no maybes, because maybes always mean no. There is no “I’ll try” because that’s indecisive and not committed. There is only “YES” and “I WILL”.
Have you ever taken a step back and looked into your past to see what the ‘kid you’ thought you would grow up to be? Compare that to the person you are now? Are you the same person? Well of course you are the same person, but yours dreams and aspirations, are they true reflections of who you are right at this point in time?
If so, then congratulations! Sincerely! I’d don’t know the official stats but I’m going to make up my own and say less than half of the population would really ‘grow up’ to be the person they dreamed of as a kid.
If not, then congratulations also! We are twins! I am most definitely not the person I thought I would be. Dreams of becoming a hair dresser and a professional tennis player are now out the window. My other dream of becoming a zoologist is not quite out the window. I could go back and study to do that but that dream is hidden away in my cupboard, probably never to show it’s face in full daylight again.
Another alternative is that you could be a ‘better’ person that you thought you ever could be. Maybe you have shown your competition that you have what it takes to be the best.
It’s amusing, the thought’s that run through your head while you eat breakfast at your desk, in your current day job, dreaming of being somewhere else, showing the world what you are made of. Maybe, just maybe, that will come true.
