Are You Within or Without

In life, we can spend a lot of time focusing on what we’re lacking. It’s important to cultivate a grateful heart. It’s worth harnessing what’s abundant within ourselves rather than what we think we’re going without.

Start a gratitude list today of at least a few things. Learn to be grateful each day. Begin living from a viewpoint of within not without.

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.
