Take It Easy…

There are times when we want to be high energy – we want to get things done because we have places to go and things to do. But there are times when we need to step back and slow down. There are times when we just have to say to ourselves “Hey, this is my time to just kick back, walk slowly, look around.”

Getting a lot done is great but if we think we can keep up a frenetic pace non-stop then we are in for a burn-out We need the time to chill out,

Are You Hanging On …


SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURESAre you hanging in there? Or do you quit each project after only a short time? Jacob Riis called “The Master Builder” once said that a stone cutter could deliver 100 blows to a stone and on the 101st try, the rock would split.
Are you hanging in at least that long or do you give up after the first meeting or phone call and say “Oh this is not for me” or “Things never go my way.”
How do you know if that situation would not have turned around for you if you had just hung on awhile longer…one more phone call; one more meeting, one more of whatever it takes?
Don’t sell yourself or your idea short!

Anytime…


Sun Ocean Tree

Anytime can be the time… the time for a fresh start.

It doesn’t have to be a new day or a new week or a new year. Your fresh start can begin right now, right where you stand.

All you need to do is say to yourself that you are beginning again- that you are letting the past stay in the past where it belongs, and that you will and are perfectly capable of doing what it takes to successfully move forward.

And you can do that right now.

Do You Back Away…


Vibrant Sun 3

 

Do you shy away from it…criticism? Do you see it as “all bad” or do you see it as an opportunity to learn something?

Not all criticism is bad and it’s up to you to put your emotions aside to see if there’s real value in what someone is saying to you. Many times there is that “nugget” of wisdom; a piece of advice that will genuinely benefit you, but when we let our feelings get in the way many times we don’t see it.

The next time someone “criticizes” you, stop and think about it for a minute. They just might be doing you a favor after all.

Take Them…


990105679_004

Take them…every opportunity to learn more and to open yourself up to new things because you never know where they may lead you. So maybe you sign up for a yoga class (which is great in itself) and then you find that one of the women in your class happens to be a recruiter at the company that you want to work for. You strike up a conversation and then guess who has a new job?

You never know where new paths will lead you but if you don’t at least travel down them halfway then you’ll never know where they can take you- and aren’t you worth finding out?

How Long…


angry clouds

 

Is there someone in your life that you haven’t spoken to in awhile- after having a silly disagreement?

Maybe it was an argument years ago- nobody eve n remembers what it was about, you just know you’re angry about it and so-and-so never should have said or done what they did.

But still it goes on- you never call this person anymore. You never stop to visit them or drop them a line. You miss them- and sometimes you think that you should reach out. You want to…but then you don’t. “Let them call me,” you say to yourself. And then you go on feeling bad.

Today- right now-this is it- your sign. Yes, I’m talking to you. Call that person today. Make amends. Life is too short. You’ll be happy you did.

Each One…

Each one makes us stronger- each event that causes some turmoil in our lives.

From that turmoil can come determination, strength and confidence. It can mold you into the type of person who can make the best of what life brings us.

Don’t fear turmoil; it is part of life and a part of life that can very valuable indeed, if you take the time to see the value it brings.

Believe…


990204522_016

You do deserve what you want in life. Success in life is not reserved for a few choice people; it is for anyone who wants it. It is for anyone who focuses on it, believes that it can happen for them and acts as if what they want is already theirs. It is for anyone who is grateful for what they have and is happy for the success of others. It belongs to all who believe in themselves.

Take A Look…

Take a good look…at yourself. Look at all those wonderful qualities you have. There is no one in the world quite like you.

So many times, we put ourselves down. We play up the things that we might not be so good at and downplay all those things that we really do well. Somehow those things just aren’t that important; anybody can do those anyway.

But that is not true. You may have a way with words, while another does not. You might be good t math, while another (and I’m one of them) needs a calculator for everything. You might have an artistic flare while another can draw only stick figures.

Focus on what you do well and celebrate it!

Ya Gotta Have It…


dorina fountain

Ya gotta have some…enthusiasm. You have to have a zest for life and an appreciation of all the good things already in your life- if you want to enjoy it.

Sometimes it means being happy over little things- like a sunny day or a warm breeze. And many times it means making a conscious effort to shift the way we we from kind of “blah” to feeling optimistic about the day and all it brings.

Making an effort to be enthusiastic can make the difference between a gray day and a great day!
