Did you happen to see the sun rise or set today? As the sun rises and sets, there has to be a beginning and ending to each day. This natural occurrence reminds us that sometimes we must end something in order to begin something completely new.
I saw the most beautiful pink sunset the other night and realized there was no room for procrastination in this event. The sun doesn’t have a choice. Take this bit of knowledge and apply it to your own daily living. Choose to finish what you started to begin something new. It takes work but you can always add in your own version of a pink sunset to make the finish line memorable.
Just a reminder, you only get to be here once and your impact can be huge.
It doesn’t matter where you’re at right now in life. You don’t need to imitate others, it’s important to be yourself and create a life’s work that leaves legacy.
What you do here and how you effect the lives of others is of great importance. Never forget that truth! You only have to focus on one life- your own. Make sure the life you lead creates a positive change on many people.
There’s only one thing you own completely and it’s your mind. You control and direct your own thinking. Everything can be tasked from you but the use of your mind. It’s that powerful of a concept.
We give little thought to it’s importance because the mind is given to us free. It’s the most incredible tool and ally you possess.
Your mind is a vast resource you can train. Choose to fill it with the thoughts that serve you best. Feed it positive thoughts and let the negative thoughts subside for the day.
Your mind is not rental space so don’t give anyone a free pass. If you don’t believe in the value of your thoughts and mind just think about the billions spent in advertising trying to get a foothold on your precious commodity.
Pay attention to how you think. You can be your own friend or enemy. Start noticing your thoughts and learn to control the direction of your thoughts. Success is built within the mind.
If you’re like me, you’ve got a variety of goals in various categories. It’s difficult to juggle more than one goal. Success finds itself in many areas of life.
Keeping on track is the tricky part. I’ve found a nice planner that is blank for dates and allows you to start on any day is the best bet for daily tasks. Many planners out there have sections for three month and yearly planning along with sections to dissect how your plans are progressing. I’m a big fan of the Clever Fox planners because they allow you to do goal planning and map out weekly priorities and tasks.
Do take time to re-evaluate your goals on a regular basis. Review different areas of your life such as health and fitness, business and career, family and friends, relationships, personal development, finance, recreation and fun. These areas should be assessed monthly to see where you need to put in extra time. Don’t neglect one area of your life solely for another. It’s important to keep balance.
Find time to initially map out your goals and plans. Use a daily planner to keep on track with weekly and monthly tasks. Keep a separate notebook to evaluate how your goals are progressing and which areas of your life require more time and improvement.
Once you make it a habit to keep track of your plans, you’ll be able to see how much progress you’ve made. It can be very rewarding to see all the wins and exciting as you close in your goals. Seeing your plans written down can definitely help you keep in track.
Every day gives you the opportunity to completely start fresh. It doesn’t have to be New Year’s Eve or a special day to declare your new goals and begin again.
Each year we’re filled with a set of cumulative new days which we can formulate at anytime into a life goal or plan.
It’s never too late or the wrong time to start something. You’re never too old, tired, inexperienced or unable to begin. Realize each day is a blessing and holds an opportunity to try. Dare to be bold and brave. See beyond your comfort zone. Look deep within to find a new path and start walking.
I encourage you to set aside some time and reevaluate your current goals and see if they still align with your values and life purpose. If not change them. Don’t be afraid and stick with old plans you’ve outgrown. Be honest and assess the direction you truly desire to go. Never get stuck with an old set of plans because they feel comfortable.
Invest in yourself daily. Even if you’re completely changing course, change today. Don’t wait to start what you can’t stop thinking about. Give a lot of yourself and you will quickly see the return.
In a fast paced technological world filled with faces and place we’re supposed to watch on a daily basis, it’s time to put the focus back on ourselves.
For a little while today I invite you to look at the possibilities and magic within you. Step away from all the noise and clutter of the outside world and remind yourself exactly how important you are in this universe.
There’s only one of you. Are you aware no one else comes even close? You’re not here by accident. You’re a unique individual, beautiful and perfect. You matter. What you do here is of exponential importance.
Never let a day go by when you don’t realize your self worth. Instead of looking at everybody else and trying to compare or compete, see the truth. You deserve the time and focus. You’re capable, talented and brimming with ideas. Share your magnificence with the world and delight in knowing every path you cross with someone else is unquestionably linked to your own journey.
Never spend a moment wishing you are someone else. This world simply can’t live without your individual presence. Enjoy the view!
There are many challenges in daily living. Often these situations and tasks make us feel like we’re on nonstop survival mode. It’s important to survive but imperative you get to a place of thriving in your life.
Complaints, problems and tasks leave us feeling as though we have little time to get to a place for ourselves. Even if your time is limited, consider putting the focus and effort back on you.
When you put energy into your life, you’ll begin to see a thrive mindset develop. When you thrive, you’re able to grow and expand as an individual. You’ll find space in your mind and your heart for new paths in life.
Make time for you. When daily challenges become too much, put them on hold. Find a quiet space and a bit of time where you can repair and rebuild yourself into a position of thriving not simply surviving.
Take a moment to examine your life. Simply look at your day’s events and reflect. Are you fitting into a life you want?
It’s easy to get in a routine and simply fit your way into a life but at some point it feels uncomfortable. You’ve got to build a life to your size and fit in where you desire to be.
Get back in touch with your dreams and aspirations, your personal kindness and generosity, your gratitude and blessings, strengths and weaknesses.
We live in an abundant world and you deserve abundant thoughts that shape and direct your life. If you’re just getting by and fitting into a life that’s not quite up to your dream life, remember you’re good enough right now at any point to rethink and restart.
It’s okay to be anywhere in life but take time to reflect. Don’t just make a place for yourself, find a place. Take care to gently examine your direction and place abundant thoughts within your mind as seeds of hope building and reflecting back to you the life you desire.
You’re worthy of productive and abundant thoughts. Don’t simply take up space in life. Instead with care, work with yourself and in yourself to find your place in life.
How is your day going? Is it a productive day where you’re accomplishing tasks and beginning a new project? Maybe it’s a brainstorming day. Perhaps you’re in the process of beginning a new venture or relaxing. Wherever you’re at, I encourage you to take a moment and fill up your mind.
What do I mean by fill up your mind? Your mind is an incredible machine. No matter how modern science tries to assess the mind, they simply can’t because it’s the most amazing invention that exists. Use this invention to your advantage. Fill up your mind with thoughts that advance you.
It’s easy to get lost in everything that’s going wrong. Don’t let that seep into the crevices of your mind. Fill your mind instead with positivity, prosperity, possibility and good thoughts. Replace any negative thought on your radar with something good. Repeat positive affirmations such as: I am healthy, capable and abundant.
If you spend a short amount of time today listening to the negative defeatist chatter bustling about in your mind, you’ll see the benefit of replacing those thoughts immediately. It’s absolutely free to fill up your mind with good thoughts and the benefits are good too. Get in the habit of noticing your thoughts and filling up your mind with positive life affirming thoughts.
The only thing worth filling up besides your gas tank is your mind. Neither run on empty.
The sky shows up everyday. It never really knows if it will be sunny, cloudy, raining or snowing. It’s an incredible landscape just waiting to be painted.
Life is a bit like the sky. Sometimes it’s as simple as showing up. The outcome can be an amazing masterpiece you never expected.
Hasn’t that ever happened to you in life? You’re at a turning point or standstill and then something fantastic happens because you were in the right place at the right time. You meet someone, catch a break, enjoy an unexpected surprise or simply experience a memorable day.
Feel the emotions: the fear, anxiety, confusion, happiness, excitement for the day and show up. Being there for the successes granted us in life is the easiest ingredient of success.
Imagine the possibilities. If the sky can transform into an incredible work of art, so can you.
It’s very easy to get caught up in the difficulties of life. Take time instead to rediscover and cultivate your blessings. Even if you have few, you have many.
Do you have running water? A safe place to rest your head? A few moments of quiet to yourself? A friend? Food to eat? Can you walk? See? Simple as they may seem, someone else doesn’t have these things or abilities and someone else may have lost their life so you have freedom and privileges.
In times of worry and anxiety, rediscover your blessings. When you still your mind and keep it on things you truly can be grateful for new things can break free and enter your world. If you try to build on a crumbling foundation of your struggles, it can be shaky. Instead build on a solid foundation filled with your blessings.
We all have so much to be grateful for and if this post allows for a few minutes of gratitude, you’ll have changed the day and a little bit of the world by changing your thinking. If you practice gratitude already, you know the benefits reach far greater than yourself.
