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.
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.
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.
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!
