What Are You Telling Yourself?


990205258_023What are you telling yourself? Are you telling yourself things that make you happy? Do you encourage yourself? Do you see the glass as half-full? Do you treat yourself like your own best friend? If not, why not?

We have a choice in this life. We have the power to make ourselves happy- or to make ourselves miserable. And we do that largely through our inner dialogue.

That little voice inside your head will keep talking. It will continue to give you feedback, but what that little voice tells you is up to you because you program it.

When you hear it speak negatively and pull you down stop it and say  “Hey now, little voice, I  do deserve to be happy. I can do what I set out to do. I can make a positive difference in this world and now I want you to start reinforcing those beliefs for me.”

See if the little voice starts to change its tune and sing your praises. The more positive you hear the more positive you do.

Are You Enjoying It?


A990205258_011re you enjoying it- your journey in life- or are you just fixated from getting from Point A to Point B as fast as you can? Do you often begin sentences with “I’ll be happy when ____ (you fill in the blank)

You know what? Life will end soon enough so you don’t have to try to make it go any faster- stop and savor the small moments as they unfold- that is some of the stuff that makes life worth living.

You know what? If you keep say stuff like “I’ll be happy when…” you’ll find that when your “when” rolls around you are happy- for about five minutes, and then you’re off on yet another “I’ll be happy when…” and then in the meantime, you’re miserable.

You know what I’m talking about. Living life this way makes no sense and in the end, won’t make you happy- but enjoying the actual journey; seeing it as part of a learning and enrichment process will.

You Can (If You Really Want To)


990108468_036You can (if you really want to) expand your horizons. You can take the first step towards the hings you want in life.

Can it be scary? You bet. Can it make us anxious and uncomfortable? Definitely. Is it worth it? What do you think?

Do you think it would be better for you to spend your life in your “comfort zone” and never know the thrill of stretching your boundaries; never knowing what it’s like to discover new things and just how much you’re really capable of? Do you really just want to sit there and collect dust?

So, at the end of your life do you want to be known as the adventurer or the dust collector? I know which one I choose- how about you?

Do You Spend Time There?


Do you spend time there…in your imagination, seeing your dreams take form, feeling your goals coming to fruition? Are you spending time in this magical place? Or, do you brush off your imagination as useless, a waste of time, or a place only for children?

It’s from the imagination that some of the great inventions of our time sprang from. Einstein used it. Edison used it. These were not frivolous men. They did not view the imagination as a place for only little kids- they viewed it s a viable tool to help them on their journeys.

And so should you. Make the commitment today to spend at last a few minutes of the day in your imagination, visualizing your goals being realized, and see how it can be a very valuable tool.

Be You


Be you- because you shine just the way you are. You do! Stop and think about that for a moment. Look at all you do well. Stop comparing yourself to other people; each of us has own own unique talents, but so many times we downplay what we do well and almost over-play the talents of others.

You can certainly appreciate what others do well, and you should, but never at the expense of the things that you can do. Keep that in mind.

Today, appreciate yourself.

You Have To Start It First


DSC01699_0015You have to start it first. We all want people to be kind to us, to listen when we speak, to understand and to smile. We all want that- but someone has to take the first step and that needs to be us.

We need to be kind first- to lend a helping hand when we can. We need to listen when someone speaks. To understand and to smile. We need to set the example, because what we put out there we will attract back to us.

So, if we spread misery and sadness we’re not going to get that understanding smile; we’ll just get a bunch of people running for the hills when they see us coming their way.

Besides, it feels good to be nice and it’s the right thing to do. So let’s all do it a lot more.
