Confidence is everything!!!
Sometimes the difference between failure and success is confidence. You must find a way to keep your confidence high. One of the keys to living a successful life is having good morale.
Have you worked with a company or employee with poor morale? Have you been to a church where there was poor morale? I certainly hope your home has great morale, but there are some home situations with poor morale.
During difficult times it can be really easy to let your morale drop to an unhealthy level. We all have times when we are demotivated or when we feel low in confidence. So how can you keep your morale high?
I hope today’s blog will help you find a way to keep your morale high in all other areas of your life. Here are 5 Tips to Keep Your Morale High.
1. Seek Out A Greater Source Of Inspiration
You probably already know where I am going with this point, but I will say it anyway.
PLEASE! PLEASE! PLEASE! PLEASE!
Consult with someone greater than yourself. For me, it will always be God first. But after speaking with the Creator of all things, He helps me search out other people, books, etc. to help give me the inspiration I need to accomplish my short-term and long-term goals. It makes no sense to go to someone who cannot give you more knowledge about whatever area you are lacking knowledge. There are many people who make this mistake.
Seek out a greater source of inspiration.
2. View Challenging Times As An Opportunity
The beautiful thing about life is having a choice. We make many choices in a day.
From when we first open our eyes in the morning to us closing our eyes at night, we face many choices. Individually, we have to live with every choice we make.
There are some challenges that are greater than others. However, regardless of the challenge, we have a choice. We can choose to view our challenging times as an OPPORTUNITY or a threat. Your choice will determine your response to your challenge.
Viewing your challenging times as an opportunity will allow you to focus on the positive versus the negative. It gives you permission to be better versus thinking of how bad you are.
View your challenging times as an opportunity.
3. Focus On Living Life
How many times have you heard people criticizing the position of our world? How many times have we heard discussions of what others aren’t doing right?
I believe sometimes we have the wrong focus. Rather than focus on everyone else, instead focus on living your own life. Your focus should be on what you can contribute to our world. Your perspective should consist of ways you can gain better results with your life.
Focus on making your life better. Focus on making your family better. Focus on being a better employer. Focus on being a better church member. Focus on being a better parent. Focus on being a better sibling. Focus on being a better human being.
Focus on LIVING LIFE!
4. Don’t Lose Sight of Your Goals
It is very easy to lose sight of the long-term when you are so preoccupied with the short-term. You cannot afford to neglect your short-term responsibilities, but you cannot forget about your long-term goals.
One of the reasons why you do what you do everyday is because of your long-term goals. When facing your short-term challenges put a list or some form of reminder of your long-term goals in front of you to keep your morale high. It will continue to remind you of the reasons why you are working so hard.
So face all the challenges you have to face, but don’t lose sight of your goals.
5. Balance Your Life
The three most important things in life are 1) God, 2) Health, and 3) Relationships.
We discussed seeking out God earlier, so let’s talk about health. With good health, you will not be able to do anything you plan on doing in the future.
In my line of work as a physical therapist, I have seen many people take for granted their health. Eventually that attitude led to further degeneration of something that could have been improved.
What about the relationships in your life? Are they healthy?
One of my mottos in life is “LIFE IS ALL ABOUT RELATIONSHIPS!”
Everything else should take a back seat to the balance you need in your life with your God, your health, and your relationships.
Balance your life.
At the end of the day, you want your morale to be high. The higher your morale at the end of the day; the higher it will be at the start of the next. Use the 5 tips to keep your morale high and watch your life progressively move in the right direction, which is forward despite the challenging times you may face.
