Trust the Best is Yet to Come
If we don’t make the best out of what we have now, why would the universe trust us to receive more? Acknowledging the best in what we already have is the foundation for all abundance.
We can see the glass full just as easily as we can see the glass empty. We can look for the opportunity rather than see troubles and problems. We can use what is available rather than focus on what is lacking.
Let us step up with optimism and trust the best is yet to come today.
Those That Light Us Up
It may be rare to find others that we really like to be around. Sometimes we hang around with others just because it’s a habit or it’s the right thing to do.
When we find someone that we connect with, someone that we like to talk to and inspires us, they light us up. We know it because when they leave, we long for their presence. This may be a bigger deal than we think it is. Why not figure out a way to keep them around?
Let us surround ourselves with those that lift us up higher today.
Measure of Worth
What is the real measure of our worth? What are we equal to in value? What if we lost everything, how much would we be worth? Nothing of real worth can be bought like love, loyalty, credibility, and success.
The law of value says our real worth is measured by how much more value we give rather than how much we get paid or receive. When we give extreme value to what and who we value, success and love naturally follows.
Let us realize what and who is worth the value of our effort and what and who is not today.
Everything we do can be a stacking step for becoming the person we hope to be.
Stacking is building a new habit on top of an existing habit. Each new habit may only be a small step, a small win, but it’s progress.
Small progress is better than no progress. Stacking works because our previous habit is a cue that sends a signal to move us to the next level. This is a simple system for improvement. The trick is not to slip backwards.
Let us cue up and make a leap towards our best today.
One Means Won
Zero means none. One means done.
When we create something new – something that no one else has thought of or hasn’t been done before or existed, we move from zero to one and “won” and done. Doing that is what makes us distinctive.
To create something from nothing and loving the experience along the way is golden. It may only come along once in a lifetime. It may be a gradual climb to move the needle from zero to “won.” The ride of the experience makes life exciting.
Let us keep the anticipation of moving from zero to hero alive today.
What is the cycle of success? Maybe it’s as easy as this.
Let us step into the progression of success today.
Basic Reliability vs. Integrity
Integrity is said to be weighted as the highest characteristic in leadership. But what is integrity?
Most people act on integrity by being honest, trustworthy, keeping their word, and doing what they say they will do. Isn’t that just basic reliability?
Extraordinary people act on integrity by being intentional in choosing their thoughts and actions based on their personal values. The core of integrity has more to do with clearly defined personal values and acting in alignment with those values.
Let us serve our integrity by being in harmony with our personal values and use ourselves as our personal role model today.
The Stage of Adventure
We can look at our work in three stages:
1) work from paycheck to paycheck,
2) work from one job to the next job, or
3) work while playing from one adventure to the next.
“Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all.”
An adventure may be an experience that brings a surprise. It may expand our perspective. It may be a touch that alters our perception about love and life. It may be an inner shift of mindset that makes us come alive.
Whatever it is, let us play in our work and find more adventure in today.
Money Can't Make Us Whole
What is money? Money is energy. It doesn’t have value. The value comes from the energy we give it. Value comes from our dreams that we hope money will help us attain.
No doubt, having money makes us comfortable but it never makes us whole.
Money can’t fix relationships.
Money can’t buy a family.
Money can’t bring us peace of mind.
Money can’t make us healthy.
Money can’t make us feel rich if we don’t value our self-worth.
Let us use the energy of our money to flow freely without attachment today.
If only. If only what?
If only we didn’t have to work.
If only we had more money.
If only we had the relationship of our dreams.
If only we had our dream job….
If only is only the gap between where we are now and where we wish to be in the future. Sure, we plan, we dream, we work hard, we do our best but there’s never a time to not immerse ourselves in the now or wish our lives away.
Let us turn “if only” into “what is” and enjoy every second of what is today.
