The most successful people aren’t experts in everything. They are an expert in at least one thing, then they create value with it and share it.
We value others based on their perception of their skills, so to be an expert means we remove all doubt that we are the expert. There’s no reason to use doubting words like “I think.” And, we continue to create influential knowledge so we remain the expert.
Let us be committed to learning and developing our expertise today.
When we have time, it shows we are available. When we make time, it demonstrates we know what our priorities are. When we find time, it confirms our commitment. When we spend time, it proves what we value.
Knowing the true value of time and how we choose to spend it is who we really are, not who we say we are.
Knowing our true values and spending our time in balance with those values is where our peace lies.
Let us realize the value of every moment of time today.
When we are stable, confident, and clear about what we stand for, we are emotionally intelligent. This is when we can control our thoughts before we start to spin out of control.
If we allow ourselves to start spinning, it’s easier to lose our perspective and position. The more we spin, the more tension starts to build, and our mind triggers more stress.
If we can’t stop it, it’s as if we allow ourselves to be emotionally hi-jacked: unstable, unsure and unclear.
Let us minimize emotional hi-jackings and stand emotionally intelligent today.
I am “?????.” What word we use in the question mark may be the most important word of the day. That one little word is defining. That word tells our subconscious brain to act.
We can say, “I am strong” or we can say” I am weak.” The difference between strong and weak gives our subconscious mind entirely two different directives.
Let us be ready to face whatever challenge that comes our way by choosing the right “I am word” today.
What got us here may not get us where we need to go in the future. When we rely on the same skills and experiences from our past then where we are today may be our greatest weakness.
Long-term success is built over time with an investment in reinventing and constantly improving ourselves. We can’t afford to get stuck in our success by continuing to learn how to do the same thing better or allowing ourselves to stagnate.
Let us earn our success by continuing to learn today.
Wealth is about being rich in health, experiences, ideas, and knowledge. Money helps afford those things, but money doesn’t create wealth. A mind full of richness creates wealth.
A mind that desires more richness is never bored or stagnant because there’s always more to learn. The more we learn, the more our mind is enriched, and that creates more options in every aspect of our lives.
Let us learn, think rich thoughts and cultivate a wealthy state of mind today.
While some gloat about what they’ve done or talk about what they plan to do and have nothing to show for it, there’s a lot to be said for people that get things done and let their actions speak louder than words.
Gloating and talking but not doing says we need recognition from others. Our real strength lies in what we don’t say about ourselves. Trust expresses in silent action.
Let us do more than we talk about doing today.
Real success is when we are an expert in our field and even if we don’t know exactly what to do, we believe we are the best person to figure it out.
It’s when we have confidence in our ability and believe in ourselves more than anyone else. It’s saying to ourselves, "I may not know what to do but if I can’t figure it out, no one can."
Usually, once we affirm that we will figure it out, options and possibilities magically appear.
Let us say yes and find a way to figure it out today.
Influence is a tricky thing. We are influenced by the people we respect and admire, family, friends, success partners…
We like to think we are original but all of us are influenced by others, and that’s what shapes us. The smarter we are, the more creative we are, the more curious we are, the more motivated we are, and the more we care is what goes into our shaping.
We are here to be influencers not followers. That’s why it’s vital to watch who we let influence us.
Let us be selective about our external influences and use our inner ability to influence ourselves today.
Sometimes we get in a rut. That’s when we need others to lift us up and help us get out. During that time, we can look for the 5Ws: who, what, when, where and why.
When in a rut, we need others that expand our realm of thoughts, not those that keep us where we are.
Let us seek those that help us meet our 5W criteria today.
