I wanted to share this grand view with you today. You’re life should be an epic exciting adventure. If you haven’t found your passion for life or what makes you tick, take a few minutes today and assess your life. Determine your strengths and weaknesses and outline your course.

There’s truly no time to waste. Everyday is a gift. Realize this incredible truth. You were put here to do great things. I hope this message encourages you to reevaluate your life. Any and every level of hard earned success is a destiny. Seize yours!

How are You Fitting Into Your Life Today?

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.

Fill Up Your Mind

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.

Don’t Let Doubt and Fear Keep You from Trying

Doubt and fear are the two enemies you can’t afford to rob you. Never let doubt or fear keep you from trying.

They say you have nothing to lose by trying and I believe that’s partly true. When you try, you lose only your own doubts. Even if you get nothing in return, you’ll have accomplished something unexpected. You’ll have surprised yourself by stepping out of unfamiliar territory and attempting something new.

Unfortunately, fear and doubt stop us from even starting. Overwhelming beliefs we’re not good enough, unskilled or unable can literally stop us in our tracks. Don’t let this be your story.

In order to find your true path, you must learn to search within yourself and erase doubt and fear. If the life you’re currently living isn’t what you truly envision for yourself, then you must build up your confidence.

Doubt and fear will weigh you down. Keep them in check. It’s not easy. Once you see how these feelings operate to keep you stagnant, you might want to feel the fear but try anyways. Erase the doubt and fear chatter in your mind for a minute and see what might be possible and go for it.

Use Your Thinking to Propel You

Thoughts truly are things. They can transform us or lead us into despair. It’s challenging to always be upbeat but you can attempt to control your mind. You can try to steer from negative thoughts to positive thoughts.

So why not try a small challenge to keep your thoughts positive for 30 days. It’s difficult but the results will amaze you.

Let your own mind start working in your favor. Quickly replace a negative thought with a positive one. Substitute anxiety and worry with gratitude.

Try it for 30 days. Never let a negative thought seep so deep into your mind and find a home there. A positive mind is soil for good things. It can imagine and propel you. Choose positivity!

Stray from a Mass Manufactured Life

In order to achieve real lasting success you have a definitive choice in life. You can allow your life to be directed by popular role models but you may find your life is robbed. If you copy someone else’s life you are eventually living their life not yours in some manner. While role models are good, sometimes they’re only good at modeling a life- their own.

Instead, you must opt to find your own path. Seek it out and create a life of your own design. Think your way to a new life. Only you can do that and what excitement, wonder, greatness and passion it can bring to you and the whole world when you make this choice.

Real lasting success begins by building a life and straying from a mass manufactured life filled with following people, the latest trends and fads.

Let not your own life be robbed by living a carbon copy lifestyle. Be bold and brave and design a real life free from emulation that defines and changes the world. Take back your power from mass ideas and let your individualism shine and inspire others.

Become Your Own Best Friend

You only have to get along with one person in your life- yourself. Become really good friends with yourself. I did this and began to notice strengths, weaknesses and areas I could devote more time to improve.

Life is tough. It’s best to learn to be nice to yourself. In your own mind, you will discover a glorious and amazing find- you. It’s there you will enjoy the phenomenal view- your life.

It’s easy to get caught up in pleasing other people such as friends, family and coworkers. Once you get to know yourself, it’s easy to see which areas of your life are lacking attention.

It’s been said you can be your own worst enemy. It’s very true. We can build ourselves up or tear ourselves down within our own minds. Be positive, nice and caring to your permanent life long friend. Become supportive to you.

The Other IN Crowd

From social media to news, it seems everyone has gotten good at telling us how to live. In a few articles, I can be told what to eat, which fad to follow and what dress to wear. They’re determined to give us a carbon copy life. You can get a slice of that popular life if you spend your life following all the people you’re supposed to look up to.

I decided a long time ago fad people and idols were not for me. I have learned to steer clear of what the masses tell me to do. You’ve got to expand your own thinking for the life you wish to create to get past the one they’ve created for you. I think there’s another IN crowd. It’s one less talked about but full of pioneers, leaders and achievers. It’s the crowd I follow.

If you want to be part of an IN crowd, aim for these: INspirers, INnovators, INtellectuals, INvaluable minds, INteresting people and INtriguing lives. It’s something to think about.

Find a Brainstorming Buddy

Through the years, all of my best ideas have been born at thinking sessions. I like to hold thinking sessions of my own but I also like to bounce off ideas with someone.

I encourage you to find a brainstorming buddy. This is someone you can talk to about your ideas and brainstorm. Perhaps you have a plan for your writing or business. You’d be amazed at what someone else might be able to contribute to your existing ideas and plans.

Try to work with other people and help them with their plans too. It’s not two friends meeting for coffee and talking, it’s a major thinking meeting where your goal is to advance ideas. When we’re active in a society building together it’s a collective group of people building each other up instead of tearing each other down.

I’m going to address the fact you may have no one you feel comfortable brainstorming with. That’s okay. Never underestimate the power of putting your own own to paper and setting aside some time for a major thinking session. Together or alone plot it out, think big and let your mind do some creative work.

I built a small business on thinking sessions and I did a lot of personal writing after plotting out my work in my own scheduled thinking sessions. I encourage you to get in the habit of devoting time to think out your plans in life and then put those plans into motion. Happy thinking!
