Always Free

 BeFree750
“Freedom is the will to be responsible to ourselves.” -Friedrich Nietzsche. 

Recognize that we are all imperfect; appreciate what you have; be in every moment; accept uncertainty; love yourself regardless of what others think; learn from your mistakes; and choose to always forgive instead of seeing the world through bitter eyes. If you can do this and recognize all the progress you’ve made in your life so far you truly be able to realize how free you already are.

And speaking of being free, come check out one of our folk bootcamps near you! Your 1st class is always free!

Commitment

COMMITMENT IS WHAT TRANSFORMS THE PROMISE INTO REALITY.
IT’S THE WORDS THAT SPEAK BOLDLY OF YOUR INTENTIONS
AND THE ACTIONS WHICH SPEAK LOUDER THAN WORDS.
IT’S MAKING THE TIME WHEN THERE IS NONE.
COMING THROUGH TIME AFTER TIME AFTER TIME.
YEAR AFTER YEAR AFTER YEAR.
COMMITMENT IS THE STUFF CHARACTER IS MADE OF;
THE POWER TO CHANGE THE FACE OF THINGS.
IT’S DAILY TRIUMPH OF INTEGRITY OVER SKEPTICISM. 

We love you, Folk Wellness Co. bootcampers! We are here for you. We will work with you even when it is hard and it hurts… just like any committed relationship.

Motivation Monday

Challenge yourselfThink you CAN. – If it doesn’t challenge you, it won’t change you. And change breeds growth. So when a goal seems big and a plan looks tough, just start, push through it, and soon the next thing you need to do will look possible. Step by step you can get through anything!

Wear your truth. – As long as you keep being YOU, as long as you keep staying true to yourself and the passions that move you, nothing else matters.

Take time before it’s too late. – Take time to realize what it is you want; to take risks; to love, laugh, cry, and forgive. Look straight ahead and say “YES” to the opportunities coming your way. Happiness and success never come to look for you while you wait around. You’ve got to get out there, take chances, and work at it to make your dreams come true.

Be the leader of your own journey. – There are far too many capable people who don’t pursue their dreams and goals because they let their fears and others talk them out of it. Choose to swim upstream when you have to. Choose to do the things in life that move you. 

Take calculated risks. – Life is short. The day is rapidly approaching when the risk to remain perched in your nest is far more detrimental than the risk it takes to fly. Fly! Spread your wings. Start now. 

Change your thoughts. – Thoughts are power. They create and destroy. What is possible is everything. What you do is up to you. Look around and you will see that almost your entire life has been born out of your thoughts. Know this, and plant your seeds accordingly.

Concentrate on being your best self. – Negativity becomes a life altering habit, just the same as positivity; the difference is the amount of belief you hold in yourself, and how you use this belief to fuel your growth. Stay positive and remember that the connections you’re looking for in life typically become visible when you’re working hard at being your best self, and not looking at all.

Pay attention to life while you’re living it. – Realize that life is simply a collection of little chances for happiness, each lived one second at a time. That some time each day should be spent noticing the beauty in the space between the big events. That moments of dreaming and sunsets and refreshing breezes cannot be bettered. 

Say “goodbye” so you can say “hello.” – In life, goodbyes are a gift. When certain opportunities close their doors on you, there is no need to hold onto them or pray to keep them present in your life. If they close you out, take it as a direct indication that these people, circumstances and opportunities are not part of the plan for the next step of your life. It’s a hint that your personal growth requires someone different and something more, and life is simply making room. -marcandangel

Consistency!

Reputition Henry FordIf you take consistent action toward your goals, progress will be easier to see, however, it’s the consistency part that typically messes us up. 

Think about when you’ve tried to set a huge goal? Was it easy to feel overwhelmed even before you started? Now try this: 

  • Pick a goal you are excited about / need to complete! 
  • Create a list of action items for that goal & put them in order. 
  • Take the first item and start! Every small step helps you get there and they add up over time. 
  • Keep moving along, taking one step at a time, until your’ve worked your way through the list. 

We understand that first step will be the hardest! Lean waaaay into in and just get started!

Breaking Negative Patterns

Do you have patterns that do not support your growth & happiness?

Patterns are tied to strong emotions. This is how they’ve gained their strength. Something happens, we get emotionally triggered and we react. It’s a cycle that repeats and deepens until we decide to break it.
Recognizing patterns is good. Taking action to begin dissolving them is even better. This is how you can free yourself from your unconscious programs that keep you stuck.
Move from knowing to doing this week and create one positive change in your life. –Get good at living
  • Identify a pattern you’d like to dissolve
  • List all of your triggers
  • Experiment with a new response

Cultivate A Kind Heart

It’s easy to be judgmental. Simply pay attention to your thoughts and you’ll see how often you’re critical (and downright unkind) to yourself and others. It’s not pretty to witness, but awareness is always the first step. What’s delightful is when you readily see the best in yourself and others. You do this by cultivating an attitude of generosity, gratitude and appreciation. This is how you learn to keep your heart open and bring out the best in us all.

  • Become aware of your critical thoughts
  • Positively redirect them immediately
  • Pay attention to how good it feels
“I have found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only more love.”–Mother Teresa
