Own Your Mind

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.

Keeping on Track with Goals

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.

Survive or Thrive

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.

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.

Rediscover Your Blessings

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.

Kindness is More Than a Word

Kindness isn’t just a word. It’s an action. It takes a mere moment to change a life with kindness. I’ve been the recipient of kindness and it truly stays with me. I remember the people who were kind for no reason. You can reshape someone’s mindset simply by lending a helping hand.

I’ve found that being kind makes me feel better. It’s almost a healing effect. I attempt to choose kindness because I have no idea what any person I cross paths with might be suffering. It’s not like we all wear a sign that lists our hurts. Besides kindness is absolutely free. In a world where everything inflates in prices, kindness is free but priceless.

I don’t throw the word kindness around lightly because I have found it’s an action I choose to take. Without an act, kindness is simply a word. Enjoy this beautiful day!
