Five Steps to Your Personal Comeback

You’ve decided that you want to be more joyous, but don’t know what consistent actions to take to create this bliss. You didn’t lose touch with yourself overnight, so plan on taking the time needed to learn what makes you happy. Here are 5 steps to take to create more contentment in your life and set the stage for your personal comeback:

1. Take the time to figure out what is most important to you, personally. Although God and family are usually at the top of this list, this question is posed to get you thinking about what you need in order to be at your best. For me, I need to be centered. I have to have a balanced life! What one thing do you absolutely need to make your life more enjoyable? Focus on attaining this one item every day by taking small steps to craft your ideal existence.

2. Know that what you have to say is valuable and important. Make a habit of contributing in any situation that you find yourself, whether it’s a classroom setting, the PTA, your work environment, or in social situations. The more you speak up, the more you become confident in your voice. And you'll begin to look for opportunities to be able to express your opinion. Overall, this will do wonders in boosting your self-esteem.

3. Function in your life as if you’re not a victim, because you’re not. Things sometimes happen in our lives that are beyond our control. We all have been victims in our lives, one time or another. The problem lies in us thinking that we’re always a victim in situations. We all choose our paths and circumstances. Don’t make the mistake of blaming others for what you’ve chosen. By placing the blame squarely on our own shoulders, we are truly empowering ourselves and getting back in the driver’s seat. If you find yourself blaming others when things go awry, say to yourself, “I am not a victim. I have a choice as to how I approach life.”

4. Choose happiness…no matter what! Situations may not be perfect, as life seldom is. But our happiness lies in our approach to life. Awake each day saying, “I am thankful and appreciative. I choose to be happy regardless of what happens today!”

5. Arrest self-sabotaging thoughts in their tracks. If you find yourself thinking self-defeating thoughts, do what exercise guru Richard Simmons suggests. Cancel every negative thought with two positice thoughts. In time, you’ll seldom have self-destructive feelings.

If you find that you’re having problems moving forward, then you may need additional help. At this point, you may want to consider hiring a life coach or joining/organizing a mastermind group. Another great option is to use meditation CDs to help in your personal growth.

By consistently practicing the above steps, you should accelerate your movement toward contentment. Once you feel content, you’ll want to look the part. Remember funky mamas are happy mamas and present their best selves!
