In a world that is moving fast, life is passing by whilst everyone is living in the moment. Those dream crippling moments will come where you wish you had prepared more properly, accomplished something, wanting to feel more accepted, perfect; intelligent, skilful and complete. The truth is you have to grind and hustle to make it where you want to be.
We have come to learn that there isn’t perfection but life will give you another meaning. Let’s put some drive into life. Prepare both mentally and physically to activate that inner power. Eventually limits will be broken by keeping at hand tools that will provide you with relentless form of energy in pursuit of your dreams. Welcome to beast mode.
Here are 6 ways to activate beast mode:
1. Stand tall and make your declaration
Seeing is believing, so make it reality by committing to your goals so that you won’t be going through life aimlessly. The majority of people do not do this and thus dreams become abandoned so always aim higher. The answer is simple, do what you love and believe you are worthy. Drop the false dreams. Evoke a spiritual journey by reminding yourself on why you started but also seeing how far you’ve come.
It will provoke you to tackle goal after goal and trigger achievement after achievement. This helps you build momentum and a clear drive so that you can become unstoppable. Once it’s written, make it happen. Unleash the shackles of doubts; stay hungry and go after what you want. Wake up the beast.
“Both desire and imagination are stored in the mind of the individual and when stretched, both have the potential to position a person for greatness.” – Eric Thomas
2. A killer workout
A strong mind, body and soul will overcome anything. Diet and regular physical activity is important to maintain a balance between work and life. A major benefit of physical activity is to increase those energy levels, self- esteem and attitude, which can help everything else in life seem much easier. Whether it’s sport, lifting weights or running, build schedules and workout plans around your daily routine.
This will build confidence in channeling your inner beast and recognize your limits. Psych yourself up to give you a mental edge because it is a great sensation in ending the day like a champion. You’ll be left wanting more. Train the beast.
3. Energy boost with motivational videos
Watching motivational videos changed my life because they improved my outlook and mind-set; a positive one. I would make it spontaneous at first and then it became routine, morning, afternoon and evening. The messages would strike a chord within me and lift me up. I would take the messages and reflect on it and use it in my life. Every step, decision and action would be driven by hunger and positive vibes. Feed the beast!
Check out my two favourite videos on YouTube:
1. It’s not over until you win! Your dream is possible: My favorite motivational speaker – Les Brown
2. Unbroken: The best I’ve seen. When we go through life we will suffer some sort of failure and when you are defeated it takes courage to go again.
4. Be adaptable to change
How will you cope with set-backs? Will you rise to the occasion? Flexible people tend to adapt and go with the flow, naturally being able to think of solutions to their problems, whilst rigid people just give up. Throughout life you will have been built on a behavioural script, taught certain things or ideas. This will result in you living on somebody else terms and not yours.
So step away from the average crowd. The willingness to get out of these models will enable you to adapt to new surroundings. Learn to survive because life sometimes hits hard and the lessons you take from them makes the difference between being successful and unsuccessful. Beast must learn to survive and rise.
5. Patiently hunt for the prey
Lions are well known to stalk their prey from cover to cover being phenomenally patient with a final burst of speed at the end. This personifies the desire, strength and power in pursuit of its goal. Likewise in life there are tremendous opportunities out there for you so be patient whilst the fire of desire burns inside you; strengthen yourself physically and mentally. When the right moment arrives, eye it up and prepare for victory. Beast patiently waits.
“The two most powerful warriors are patience and time.” – Leo Tolstoy
6. Remind yourself of the legacy you want to leave
How do you want to be remembered in life? Many will talk about the hero you were, the one who never gave up. Show others the traits of a true warrior. Inspire others that your roar was as big as your dreams. Heads will turn to see an example of success. Beast must not only be the best for self but lead by example.
