We all have an idea of where we want to be heading. We all have people and ideas that motivate us – keeping us on the straight and narrow to achieve that ‘goal’. The biggest problem I have faced is a lack of self-awareness. I find it all too easy to follow a random to-do list and just think I’m doing the right thing in the moment. The issue with that is time passes by and you feel like you are still in the same place. Getting stuck in that rut is what causes sparks of anxiety and potentially mild depression, leaving your mind in a place that doesn’t help you move forwards and motivation can drop off.

  1. How do I go about achieving my goals? In quite a simplistic way – the theory is the simple part, it’s always a question of ‘can I follow these steps through?’. The way I work it all out is: I write down on a sheet of plain paper ‘I am here’ on one side and ‘I want to be here’ – join the two together with a line. Then work backward from your goal to where you are today. This will create a list of things you need to do to get where you want to be. The next part is self-explanatory. Just follow the steps you have just written for yourself. Keep that piece of paper, keep referencing it because this will keep your progress in perspective. It doesn’t have to be 10000 steps long, but it will help your mind understand the path you are walking down, and each time you tick off one of those steps you will realise you ARE on the right path and you are a step closer to where you want to be. It is then just a matter of time. You will get there, you will achieve it – whatever it may be. If you don’t you’ll die trying and then you won’t know anyway. Either way, you will achieve that goal. You will hit that target and you will get to where you want to be.

  2. The only person standing in your way is YOU and your own mind. Take time to invest in yourself, understand what you are capable of and the best way for you to work – that’s going to reduce the time it takes you to tick off those bits you need to do to achieve your goal. Something I have realised recently is how powerful my mind can be. We are wired to make up excuses and I am extremely guilty of that. You can talk yourself out of the smallest of tasks in seconds. So stop. Take control, take ownership of your thoughts and help yourself by setting that little negative voice inside your head to one side. The more you learn that the more you will grow and develop.

  3. The third thing you need to keep in mind is; knowing your worth. If you are keen and eager to achieve something you will meet people along the way who are ready to exploit your hard work, dedication, and talent for their own financial gain. You can create your own standards, determine the value of your work and determine how you should be treated by others. Of course, this ties in with keeping things in perspective as something is only worth what someone else is prepared to pay for it. Be optimistic about your plan but keep everything in perspective with a hint of realism. The more real you are with yourself the faster you will develop. If you set an unrealistic goal and you don’t achieve it you begin putting pressure on yourself that didn’t even exist in the first place.

  4. Don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t. And I mean anyone! I have had teachers, family, partners, friends and colleagues all tell me ‘you can’t’. “Ollie that just doesn’t happen”, “yes but Ollie how are you ACTUALLY going to do that”, “Ollie that’s too much of a saturated market” etc…. The list goes on. But what I think every time I hear something like that is “yes, but I haven’t done that, I haven’t tried that, people haven’t heard what I have to say and people haven’t seen my take on that”. If someone says you can’t be a comedian – take your phone and record a set and post it online – bam! You are a comedian. If someone says you can’t be a model – take photos of yourself with others and post them. BAM – you are modeling. Do you see where I am coming from? The internet gives you a whole world of opportunity right at your fingertips – it’s up to you how you use it and what you can make of it. Remember some of the biggest artists and personalities we know of today were found online!

Something that I wanted to touch upon is the importance of mental wellbeing. Something that is equally important to your physical wellbeing but easily overlooked and manipulated within our modern, social media dominant world.

Mental welfare has a stronger link to physical welfare than you may realise. The power of endorphins is underestimated. If you are able to maintain regular exercise throughout your week your mind will be healthier and happier – therefore achieving a balanced lifestyle. It’s a simple equation but one that people tend to have their own personal battle with. I’m not suggesting you exhaust yourself trying out an unachievable and unrealistic fitness plan, but try making a do-able plan. Since doing this myself my energy levels have gone up and I feel more present/positive as a person. Take 10 minutes this weekend, write yourself up an achievable plan to get yourself mobile for one hour a day. Getting your heart rate up and keeping active will protect both your mental and physical health – one action = two positive outcomes and a balanced lifestyle.

Social media has the ability to influence our mental wellbeing too. You are reading this because you enjoy the idea and medium of online content sharing (thank you). But it’s important that you follow and read things that spark those positive vibes. The internet has turned into a place of ‘who can shout the loudest’ which as a blogger/creator/whatever you want to call me, can be heavy on the mental welfare. Personally, I have had a tough few months transitioning out of the honeymoon phase of starting up in the social media world. If you feel like you are being out-done on your social media presence, you doubt yourself, you’re doubting your creative ability or yourself as a person. Stop. Focus on you.

Something I have learned the hard way is to look after yourself as well as those around you. Do you, be you and trust you. It’s a fast-paced, manic world out there. Stop worrying about other people and stop comparing yourself to those heavily face-tuned accounts. Find something that makes you happy and share it, the right people will engage with it. Those that don’t but still follow you are still interested otherwise they would have unfollowed you. Let’s look after each other across these platforms, there’s enough international negativity going on, let’s keep social media positive and protected. Positivity costs nothing but protects your balanced mental welfare.

Aside from exercise and online opinions, your diet will hugely impact your mental balance & wellbeing. If you are overloading your system with caffeine/alcohol and eating a nutrient deficient diet you are depriving your mental wellbeing of endorphins. You are then naturally more susceptible to be stressed, get angry and feel negative. Sugar can give your mind ‘spikes’ of quick energy and then heavy crashes which contributes to poor mental wellbeing. Try swapping out sugary snacks for a healthier alternative like ‘Yushoi’ packed full of goodness, which is high in fiber, helping you maintain healthy blood sugar levels. A downward mental spiral has to start somewhere. So take the right steps upwards and away from that to maintain a healthy balance. Surround yourself with people that inspire you, do one thing a day that scares you, try something new each day, go the extra mile when at the checkout and wish someone a lovely day as you walk away and most importantly, remember what you already have; family, friends, qualifications, phones, cameras and even internet access. To be able to have read this you are already in the top 51% of the world’s population. 49% of our world’s population is currently offline.

Stay happy, stay positive and keep working towards your goals, with a bowl full of Yushoi on the side (try their new BBQ flavour!!). Stop when you have achieved your goals, not when you get tired. Keeping pushing for #PerfectBalance.
