Transcript – Anchor – Motivational Speech
If you want a strong life… a steady life… you need a solid anchor.
In the dictionary it says an anchor is “a person or thing which provides stability or confidence in an otherwise uncertain situation.” Your anchor is something that provides you stability, even when everything around you is unstable.
Your anchor keeps you grounded and steady no matter how rough the weather around you.
Everyone has different anchors, but the strongest anchors are not those outside of yourself.
Your anchor might be many things, it might be your faith, it might be your daily self development, daily gratitude, daily exercise, affirmations, goals, faith, prayer… It doesn’t matter what it is, so long as it works for you. It doesn’t matter what it is, so long as you do it every day. Because if you’re doing it every day, you will get stronger every day, and that anchor will keep you from drifting to somewhere you don’t want to end up.
Everyone should have these staples as part of their anchor: Goals, Gratitude and Exercise.
If you always have strong meaningful goals as part of your anchor, you will always have direction and purpose, and that base will be the weight that keeps your anchor steady. Ensuring you don’t drift through life with no direction, no sense of worth or purpose.
Make sure you review your main goals daily as part of your anchor, to keep you on the right track.
Gratitude and perspective should form another part of your anchor.
Acknowledging the blessings in your life will ensure a higher quality of life. Make this happen every day.
Exercise and a clean healthy diet should also be a staple of every anchor.
If the body is strong, it makes everything else easier, you have more energy for all the other important things in your life, it completes the anchor and keeps you where you want to be in life.
When you have a strong anchor, it doesn’t mean there won’t be challenges, but it does mean when those challenges come you won’t drift off your path. You’ll keep the perspective you need. You’ll survive the rough sees… and keep moving forward when it passes.
Don’t tie your anchor to something outside of your control. If you are tying your self worth to someone else, or something that is out of your control, one day that thing will take you some place you don’t want to be. The town of loss, despair, broken heart, rejection, failure.
Your anchor is exactly that YOURS. Something that makes you stronger. Something no one else can take away.
You see most people have their anchor set in a place they don’t want to live. They’re anchored to the port of doubt. They’re anchored to the city of stress. They put their anchor up before they go to bed, and wake up in the same place… Never understanding why negativity is following them around in life. Negativity isn’t following them, they just have their anchor tied to it. If they instead went to be and tied their anchor to their goals, gratitude and positive self development, they might wake up in a better place. If they wake up in a better place and keep that anchor there, adding to it’s weight with more positive self-work, they might just continue to live in the city of GROWTH and eventually live a life far beyond anything they could have imagined.
Create your own anchor, and make sure EVERY DAY it’s tied to something STRONG.
