The Happy Middle with Lauri Mackey
In This Episode…
Have you ever felt like you wanted to accomplish something but talked yourself out of it with thoughts of, "You're too old," or "It's too late"? Well, it's never too late to follow your dreams. Just ask Lauri Mackey, who has accomplished a LIST of things after turning 40, including racing mountain bikes and getting her GED in a class full of Hispanic teenagers that she had nothing else in common with!
Lauri shows us how to embrace and celebrate your current station in life– where you are right now!
Ways to Listen to this Episode:
You can't touch yesterday; the past is a learning tool. You have now.
Don't think in terms of waiting until. It's what you do today that will make your future goal a reality.
What You Can Do
Don't sell yourself short because you're over 40. Change your attitude from “I can't” to “I will.”
Change your negative language from “I can't because…” to “I WILL ___________.”
What you do now will go toward your future goals?
Be intentional with your actions. Visualize the manifestation of your dream becoming your reality.
Are you waiting to get motivated? Motivation is step 2!
Step 1 – Action – It doesn't have to be big. You can take baby steps, and it's ok if you “fall off the wagon” and miss a day or two. Just back to it!
Step 2 – Motivation (this istarts from the feeling you get after having accomplished step 1)
Step 3 – Momentum (develops from repeating steps 1 and 2 over and over again)
Step 3a – Have fun!
You don't have to be perfect when you are implementing these steps. No one is perfect. Give yourself a break and allow yourself to be human.
