Nate's Monday Message 

Welcome to this edition of Nate's Monday Morning Message. This week and every week we have the opportunity to build the life that WE want. You need to become very clear on what it is that you wish to accomplish in life. Focus on the big picture items - Relationships, Business, Health, Spirituality, Money, etc. You need to become clear on where you want to be and how you want to live your life and then you can dig deeper into the specifics.

Picture the destination and what it will be like and then you can set the road-map to success. Things will change along the way and roadblocks will appear. The best part of your journey is that you can decide what to do along the way. This is your journey and YOU need to be responsible for it. Once you come to this realization you will understand that all of the roadblocks and challenges are just things to get through. They will always be less important than your destination. Let's Make This The Best Week Of The Year!

ENCOURAGEMENT CORNER...   

In this article, Sports and Performance Psychologist “Justin Sua” tells us what it takes to be mentally strong enough to take on the big wigs in the arena.  Are you mentally tough enough? 

1) They don’t feel sorry for themselves:
They understand that complaining doesn’t make the situation better. They know that people won’t treat them they way they want to be treated, circumstances might not be ideal, and they will experience adversity; however, rather than complain about the negative aspects of their situation, they focus on what they want to happen and what they’re going to do about it. 

2) They don’t give people power over them:
They are not people pleasers. They are relentless in their pursuit of their passion and aren’t worried about what other people think. They give power to what they focus on, and if they waste their time focusing on the opinions of others, they lose sight of the things that will make them truly successful. 

3) They don’t avoid change:
They are always looking for ways to evolve. They believe that if they continue to give their best, their best will continue to get better over time.With the competition continuing to get bigger, stronger, faster, and smarter; it’s important to have the mindset to improve by learning from successes and failures. 

4) They don’t play small:
The mentally tough swing for the fences and know that it might mean striking out a few times (or many times). Their purpose for achieving greatness casts away their fear of failure. They refuse to tip-toe through life, they intend on creating a legacy for the future by making an impact in the here-and-now. 

5) They don’t focus on things they can’t control:
They refuse to waste time focusing on things they can’t control because there is nothing they can do about it! They understand that the less control a person feels the more susceptible they are to making poor decisions, falling into bad habits, and crumbling under pressure.
