Relax and Feel Free
One of the best feelings in the world is to feel relaxed. That’s when we feel free and relieved from stress or tension. When there’s less pressure, we’re able to control our mind and get into a relaxed flow of energy. This energy is calming – to us and everyone else. Then we can think with clarity. It’s easier to prove to ourselves that we can handle anything that comes our way.
Let us take time to relax even when we don’t have time for it today.
Make a Decision and Go With It
Time doesn’t stop or wait for anything or anyone. If we are sitting on the fence waiting to decide, we’re just stalling, letting opportunities go by or staying in a place, knowing we need to move forward but won’t.
Any indecision is just a decision that we aren’t ready to come to terms with yet. Worse, indecisiveness is exhausting. Too long of an indecision only gets in the way of our progress. The truth is an indecision is still a decision. It’s a decision to do nothing.
Let us pick our path and know it’s the right decision to make today.
Do the Right Thing
Each of us makes choices throughout the day to do the right thing or the easy thing. Most of the time, the right thing isn’t the easy thing but the right thing is always right.
The trick is to make the right thing the easy thing. It’s easy when the right thing is the thing that aligns with our highest values. The easy thing is everything else. When we choose the right thing over the easy thing, we usually are successful. Success is as simple as that.
Let us do the right things today!
Remove All Doubt
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.
Value of Time
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.
Spinning Out of Control
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.
