Would we be inspired if we watched a movie about our day yesterday?
Would our thoughts, words, and actions be aligned with our highest values?
Would we radiate energy?
Does our beauty shine from within?
Would we say, I want to be just like that person in the movie!
How could we not be proud of ourselves if we could say that?
We are the director of our movie.
Let us be a person in our movie that we would watch over and over again and be excited about today.
Yes, No, or WOW!
How did we get to WOW?
We get WOW when we exude confidence, poise under pressure, and the ability to decide and think quickly on our feet.
We get to WOW when our speaking skills are clear, concise, assertive, and used with strong language.
We generate the WOW factor with the radiation of passion and energy.
Like magic, when we wow others, we influence them and command the situation.
Let us strive to WOW others by our presence today.
There is no such thing as instant success. Success is the result of our moment-by-moment decisions made over long periods of time.
Those who skyrocket to the top in a short period of time are preceded by a long period of preparation, rehearsal, and trial-and-error experimentation. Most think of someone as an overnight success is in reality at least 10 years in the making.
Let us smile, plan, breathe, sharpen our skills, work smart, and be kind today!
There is a small space in a decision point where we think and act. That decision point is where our true power exists. Decisions are much easier if we base our actions on what we value because we build trust within ourselves. Then, we are in alignment. We are more confident in our decision.
Otherwise, if we decide based on what is contrary to our values, we erode the trust in ourselves, which is worse than anything else. If we can’t trust ourselves, how will others trust us?
Let us be the one person that we trust the most today.
Wherever we are going or whatever we are doing, when we show up to be an active participant, the world opens up to us. Then, when we intentionally show up to give without expectations or judgments, the world works in our favor. It’s not luck. It’s not strategic. It’s not our influence. It’s just authentic giving without the need for taking.
Let us show up to give today.
The essence of calmness is knowing when and what to overlook, then pivoting accordingly.
Only we know if the situation can or should be dismissed. If it can, we take the high road when we overlook it rather than argue to be right. Then it's easier to move on.
Combining overlooking with pivoting, we take the energy headed in one direction and redirect it into another. Usually, all turns out for the best in the end, and we remain calm and in control.
Let us use the energy bundled in chaos and channel it towards calmness today.
What if all we need to do is press an internal button and we become motivated, inspired, and ready to tackle any challenge that comes our way?
What is that button? Is that button associated with the people we hang out with, our work, things that happen at a certain time of day, or whatever we do to have fun? It could be a lot of different things. The trick is knowing what that button is.
What inspires us is the highest art of the day.
Let us press our button and kick into high gear when we need it most today.
There’s nothing greater than being around others that see our value and remind us of it. It makes us feel even more valuable. And we don’t need to waste our time proving or convincing them of our value.
When the value is unequal, there’s an unbalance. Then, trust is lower, and the relationship feels heavy with less energy.
Why not give higher priority to those we value, or spend more time finding the value in others so that it’s more in balance?
Let us remind those we value feel like a big deal today.
Intensity is the price of visibility. The more visible we are, the more mental strength we require.
How we direct our mental strength during intense situations determines how successful we are when performing under pressure, managing stress, and dealing with unexpected conditions.
When intensity contributes to our positive levels of energy, it creates momentum. Sometimes that’s all we need to lift us up and propel us forward.
Let us use our intensity in harmony with our immensity today.
There are a lot of things in life to love … family, friends, hobbies, work, pets…. But one of the greatest loves is to be in love with our own life.
When we love our life, our life loves us back to the degree we love it. Loving our life is a lifestyle – where everything is in flow and is play – no matter what we are doing. Loving life is a way of cherishing every moment and inspiring zest for life wherever we go and in whatever we do.
Let us love the life we live and live the life we love today.
