Finding meaning in life is a search of a lifetime. It’s up to us to find our meaning of life by giving our lives meaning. It’s no one else’s responsibility.
How easy is it to love the life we live then live the life we love to the fullest?
Many, at the end of their lives, find meaning right under their feet.
t seems we find meaning most when we go through any experience that pushes us beyond our limits.
Let us welcome any situation that pushes us to love beyond our best today.
Our day isn’t about checking things off a list. If we aren’t careful the list becomes our source of stress. It’s great to have a list but at the end of the day it’s the process not the prize that matters.
We need to be reminded to keep the list in the forefront of our planning but we can’t forget the “to-be” list.
It’s also about checking off things ‘not to do” to make sure we manage our time well.
Let us not rush toward the prize and enjoy every moment of today.
It’s easy to get caught up in focusing on getting the most out of every situation. Sometimes that causes more stress or sets the expectations too high.
If we turn it around and focus on giving the most in every situation, the energy and atmosphere seems lighter. We feel freer and more open. When we are focused on giving, it lessens the worry about what we have to lose so we can concentrate on what we get to gain.
Let us be extraordinary by thinking about giving and who we are becoming today.
DR = RD. Daily Routines = Right Direction. Often, we think of a routine as boring. But if we make our routine goal-directed, it serves as a checkpoint to make sure we are moving in the right direction.
Routines provide a framework for success. When our routine is a structure to ensure we are pointed in the right direction and taking steps to lead us to where we want to go, it becomes our guide.
Days quickly add up to years and the years add up our total lifespan.
Let us be inspired by our daily routine today.
A great question to ask ourselves every morning is, are we working towards our vision or someone else’s? If we aren’t, we’re helping that someone else work towards theirs, not ours. If we are working on theirs, chances are, they’ve outsmarted us and we’re working for them.
Sure, we all work for somebody and it may require us to work for others as a stepping stone to help us achieve our vision. But we still own our vision and it’s in the forefront of everything we do.
Let us not lose sight of our personal vision and keep our eye on the sky today.
Our single most influential power is energy. If we radiate positive energy, nothing else matters.
Our circle of influence is in the energy of our room – zoom room, our physical space, our mind – wherever. Why stoop to the level of where we adapt to the energy of anyone else’s room? It’s a deliberate choice to fill our room with positive energy.
We can send so much positive energy we can shift the vibration of any room we are in. We control our room.
Let us be the influencer of positive energy in our room today.
When we’ve said everything we can say to make those that matter understand, we can always try one more thing.
When we feel like there’s nothing left to give to those we love, we can always give just a little more.
When the world says give up and move on, we can rely on that little voice that tells us we can stay.
When we feel like there is little hope, we can dig deep to rekindle our spirit.
Let us be the one that lights the way today.
Have you noticed that we get stronger when we think we can’t continue, but we keep pushing anyway? Sometimes we think life gets easier, but the reality is, it doesn’t and it never will. We just get more resilient and with resilience, we get stronger.
When we think we’ve gone as far as we can go, we can always find a way to keep going. When we think we don’t have anything else left to give, we can always dig just a little deeper. It’s when we’ve given all we’ve got; we find out just how strong we are.
Let us find our strength right under our feet today.
The easiest habit we can build on is to keep the promises we make to ourselves. That may be one of the few things we can control. It’s easy to slip into keeping promises we make to others but overlook the promises we make for us. It’s usually because we love others so much and care about what they want, we compromise what we want.
After we break too many promises to ourselves, we start to feel like we are lacking in some way.
Let us put gas in our tank and keep the promises we make to ourselves today.
How we deal with expectations may influence our day more than anything else. We don’t rise to low expectations. High expectations are a key ingredient to success. On the other hand, expectations are at the core of discontent.
Once our expectation becomes a reality, and comes into the now and present moment, there are two things we can do to change our perspective immediately. Turn our expectation into appreciation. Trade in our expectation for acceptance.
Let us manage our expectations without any disappointments today.
