We have two choices in a relationship. End the relationship or improve the relationship we have.
If we decide to improve the relationship, we have two choices. Appreciate how similar we are and respect how different we are.
Our choice determines if we allow the relationship to drain us physically and emotionally or enjoy it as a life force that lifts our energy and spirit.
Great relationships are fertilized every day otherwise they are left to wilt like a flower.
Let us invest our energy in our absolute best relationships today.
Why do we need to wait for who we want to be in the future? We can be whoever we want to be right now.
If we want to be a great writer, start writing and enjoy getting better. If we want to be a great mother, be a great mother today and find ways to improve. If we want to be a great leader, start leading right now and enjoy the learning process.
We have the power to make everything we do successful today, in this moment. We become who we want to be through our habits, behaviors, and actions.
Let us be whoever we dream we want to be and be that today.
What’s our vibe? It’s the vibrational energy that encapsulates our overall state of being. There’s nothing more important than this energy.
If we wake feeling enthusiastic, our vibe is radiating. If we wake up feeling drained, our energy is sapped, and our vibe is low.
Wherever we go or whatever we do, our vibe introduces us before we say a word.
Let our vibe speak louder than our words today.
Why do some people get everything they want, and others can’t win for losing? It’s a million-dollar question.
Maybe the simple answer: successful people make decisions based on where they want to be. Not so successful people (in their own mind) make decisions based on their current situation.
Success is mostly about knowing what we want and not waiting for the things we want to magically happen. That’s why it appears successful people are always in the right place at the right time.
Let us be an energetic contributor in our personal success today.
No one knows what the future holds. We aren’t supposed to know. If we did, it wouldn’t be the future. The future is yet to be here because it is a later time than now.
We may not know what the future holds but we know that anything is possible. The only one that holds our future is us. All we need to do is be confident that whatever comes next, we will be perfectly fine.
Let us know that whatever is beyond this time and space right now, we will make it the best it can be today.
When we find meaning in what we have, it’s easier to be happy with whatever comes our way.
Meaning is the one constant thing that sustains our sense of balance.
All meaning means is something we value with a significant quality. It’s our responsibility to find what is significant. No one else can define that for us.
Let us find meaning in what makes us happy and pursue all that we want today.
Being dead shows up in all kinds of ways. It’s not only the end of a life. It’s the end of an experience or our participation in a particular time and space.
The opposite of dead is alive. Being alive is more than breathing. It’s experiencing things that are exhilarating or being somewhere or participating in things that makes us feel more alive. It’s doing things that we love and makes us feel full of life.
The trick is figuring out what makes us come alive.
Let us go where and do things that make us feel the most alive today.
Feeling overwhelmed comes from being charged with too many things to do. It’s when we feel like we are drowning and mental fatigue sets in. The sad thing is we usually create this state of overwhelm for ourselves.
Overwhelm is the thief of our energy. It’s our own fault when we think we need to get everything done all at once. It’s actually nature’s way of reminding us that we need to stop, focus on one thing: one purpose, one passion, one priority.
Let us be reinvigorated by realigning our priorities today.
Great relationships are based on two simple things: giving and gratitude.
When we only focus on what we give rather than what we receive, there’s no keeping score. There’s no conditions. There’s no expectations. The relationship is a gift and an expression of love.
When we receive with wholehearted gratitude, our gifts are multiplied.
Let us start a ripple effect with our generosity of giving and gratitude today.
There’s power in knowing what our rules are. There’s even more power in exclaiming what those rules are or using “the rule” for the justification for why we do what we do or won’t do.
People respect rules.
It’s significant when we say, I have a rule that I don’t work after 6pm or I have a rule that I don’t talk on the phone when I’m at dinner. Or, I have a rule that I don’t mix business with fun.
When we say we have a rule, we remove the choice and debate.
Let us be flexible but know what we stand for today.
