We think of the statement, “get lost” as a rude way to tell someone to go away.
But when we say it to ourselves, it’s a blessing.
When we find something that holds our interest so deeply that we forget about time and space, and we can focus our attention on it no matter what is going on around us – we’re lost. And that’s an amazing thing. That’s where our passion is. That’s what brings out our genius. That’s what leaves us feeling fulfilled. That’s our perfect zone. It’s our secret ingredient to successful living.
Let us find things that we can “get lost” in today.
No one likes a bragger, and no one feels good about being one. At the same time if we don’t toot our own horn occasionally, who will?
It’s a delicate balance between being boastful, braggish and conceited to being humble, unpretentious and proud.
Maybe what we need is a “wing(wo)man” – someone that brags about us for us. Or maybe we can toot someone else’s horn for them and be their “wing(wo)man.”
It’s the best way to elevate another to a higher level.
Let us tread easy about bragging but be proud of the space we and others take up today.
What kind of a day would it be if we didn’t have a strong desire to achieve something great?
A simple question to ask ourselves is what do we aspire to be and do today?
That sets the direction of the day because aspiration fuels our energy. That’s what makes us come alive.
When we raise our level of aspiration combined with our level of expectation, achievement is magnified. The side benefit is it raises other’s energy levels when we know what our aspirations are.
Let us work on today’s aspirations for tomorrow’s achievements.
We hear everything happens for a reason, but we can add to it and say, sometimes the reason is that we don’t choose wisely, or we make bad decisions, or it’s our fault for choosing the wrong reason.
If we know we made the best decision possible and we accept ownership for our choices, we can trust that eventually all the pieces will fall into place.
It would be nice to know what that reason is, but we don’t have a crystal ball. What is meant for us will be right for us.
Let us be at peace, live in the moment and be patient today.
