Notice them…your feelings. They are your true barometers; they are your measuring sticks and your compass about the direction you’re going in.
If something doesn’t feel right; if it feels “off” somehow then don’t ignore it. Stop and really think about what you’re doing. If it still makes you uncomfortable then maybe it’s time you changed your path…or at least made a slight adjustment
Give your inner self credit for knowing what’s best for you. Trust it. And go with your gut.
Learn- to trust your capabilities. Trust yourself. When you feel moved to do something then move forward. When you feel you can do something new, there’s a reason for that- it’s your inner voice telling you that you can. Go with it. Believe in it.Believe in yourself.
When you feel the fear of “second guessing” yourself start to surface then push it back. Remind yourself how far you’ve come- and you know what? You can take yourself the rest of the way too.
Will it be up or down? Your journey through this life?
Will every setback destroy you; every mistake bring you misery? Will a chance remark deflate you? If you let it then it will. You will always be at the bottom of the steps looking up, but you will never climb to a higher level.
The world is full of setbacks. We all make mistakes. And there’s always somebody saying the “wrong thing” You’re not going to get away from it unless you choose to live in a bubble. And how much fun would that be? Probably not much.
Learn from your mistakes and climb. Let people talk. Ignore it…and climb.
Are 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?
Just step back for a moment…before you get angry. Stop and think, because at this point you can still turn it around and look for a calm solution. One you start screaming, however, anger can escalate. And then it can ruin your day. It can cause you to say things that you might not have said when you are calm- things you could regret.
So before you let anger get started, cut it off before it has the chance to bloom.
It sure helps…being thankful. It just makes you feel better, more calm, more peaceful, and just happier.it makes you glad to be alive.
Think about the times that you have been thankful for something. Think about the way you felt. Think about the actions you then took as a result of feeling good. You took some great steps, right? You probably got a lot more done than if you sat around feeling sorry for yourself, right?
Let’s all shift our focus towards being thankful today and then we’ll make it a great day!
