A Safe Haven
Where is that one place we go that is our safe haven? It’s a place that is peaceful, supportive and free of judgment and worry? It’s where our greatest hope lies.
Why can’t that place be inside us? It doesn’t have to be external. All that matters is how we exist within ourselves.
If it’s not within us first, how can we expect to find it anywhere else?
Let us create a safe sanctuary within ourselves wherever we are today.
A Never Ending Cycle
There are three things in life we can’t get back, ever. The word after it’s spoken. The day after it’s gone. The results of our time after it’s passed.
We may think today is just another day. It’s not an ordinary day. It’s a special day that’s given to us just for today. It’s a gift that brings new thoughts and opportunities.
The coming day tomorrow will be just as special. This evolutionary transformational outlook takes us to a new level that is a never-ending cycle.
Let us treasure the gift of today and look forward to what tomorrow will bring.
Be Mentally Strong
Being mentally strong is realizing the difference between stress and pressure. Pressure is when we feel something that we value is at stake depending on what we do. Stress is when we feel we have too many demands and not enough time, money or energy.
Stress is easier because we have choices, like cut things from our to do list, decide we don’t need to buy that thing or ask for help. Pressure is goal oriented and personal.
When we can reduce our stress, we have more energy to work on things that are causing us pressure.
Let us let our stress go and effectively manage our pressure today.
Use Everything We Have Today
When is the last time we put everything we had into something we want?
It’s not that we can’t do it, we don’t want it bad enough. When we want it as much as we want the next breath of air, we’ll find a way to make it happen.
It comes down to one question. How much are we willing to give? 50% isn’t enough and neither is 95%. It takes 100%. Everything else is a procrastination.
Let us create the reality we want by using everything we have today.
Whatever It Takes (WIT)
Empowerment for greatness can be summed up in 3 words: Whatever It Takes (WIT). It’s the gap between what we are doing now and what we are willing to do next. What got us where we are now may not get us where we want to go.
When we use our WIT mindset, we make a vow that nothing will stop us if we are willing to do whatever it takes. It’s an easy mantra to remember.
Let us use our WIT about ourselves and do whatever it takes to be as great as we want to be today.
Our dream is our creative vision for our life in the future. What if we started our day thinking about how we can make our dreams come true? That would align our priorities for the day. It would motivate us to define our dreams or remind us of what our dreams are.
It’s easy to get lost in the busyness of the day. We must have a dream before our dreams can come true. Otherwise we are left to be guided by our problems rather than led by our dreams.
Or, we will be helping someone else build their dream if we aren’t working on ours.
Let us build our dream then let the dream build us today.
Affirm Your Worth
When we invest in ourselves, we are affirming our worth because we believe we are valuable. Money that we spend on education, skill development and self-improvement aren’t costs, they are investments.
When we look at our life as an investment, we are more interested in what we can give rather than what we can get. Investment lends itself to growth and transformation. Cost reeks of stagnation and expense.
Let us feel free as we invest in ourselves today.
What Are You Waiting For?
What are we waiting for? If we wait until we are ready, we may be waiting for the rest of our lives. When we are waiting, we are living in the past. That declares an extension of our current state.
Sometimes we must take the risk or risk losing our chance. It’s always our choice.
One thing for sure, now is all there is. So, if not now, when? How long will we keep waiting?
Let us take the next step to create what we want today.
Exchange Personal Growth with Free Work
A sure way to do great work is to absolutely love what we do. When we love our work, we are willing to offer complimentary services, especially if there is an opportunity to learn. Why not use personal growth as the exchange for compensation?
The result usually leads to greater opportunities, so we don’t have anything to lose. It also provides exposure and legitimizes our skills. Plus, it feels great to offer value.
Let us be generous with our talents and passionate work today.
Everyone Is A Gift
Some people coming into our life as a gift while others are a test. It’s easy to show gratitude for those that are true blessings.
Our challenge is to be grateful for those that have something to teach us about ourselves. When we view those types of relationships as lessons, we can use it to our advantage. We can accept the test, look for the teaching and love the relationship regardless of what it is.
Let us experience every relationship, good and bad, as a teaching in our lifetime lessons of learning today.
