I AM ?????
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.
A Mind Full of Richness
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.
Figure It Out
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.
Who Can Help Us Get Out of a Rut?
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.
A Carefree Day
How carefree is our day going to be today?
To be carefree is to be free from anxiety and concern, happy-go-lucky. It’s challenging to be carefree when we are responsible for others, when we have set big goals, when we have so much work to do…
We attach ourselves to so many things that may not even matter. Being carefree doesn’t mean we are careless. It means we know what we really care about and free ourselves from everything else.
Let us be careful about what we care about most and be more carefree today.
Our Vision is our Stimulus
If we have a big vision of who we want to be, it’s a strength and a stressor.
It’s a strength because no matter where we are right now, there’s a brighter day ahead. We know we can work towards any future we desire.
It’s a stressor because we set our expectations so high for ourselves, we always feel we are behind.
The truth is that we are exactly where we need to be. We aren’t off-track. Our life is unfolding.
Let us use our vision as a stimulus to remind ourselves we are exactly where we need to be today.
We each have a switch buried deep inside. We can use it to change our position or focus or direction.
Our ability to dig down and find that switch to turn it off or on is where our true strength lies. We can turn it on when we feel we’ve hit rock bottom and need to keep going. We can turn it off when we feel overwhelmed and need to stop.
As our day unfolds, this switch helps us manage our day.
Let us use our switch to switch, or know when to turn the switch on or off today.
