Think About This

7 things

As we move at warp speed toward a new year, think about these things. You don’t need them! In fact, they are your worst enemies.

Imagine what your life would be if you stopped trying to please others over yourself. Pushed through those self-doubts and did it anyway. Replaced negative thoughts with positive ones. Embraced the possibility of failure as a learning tool rather than a source of fear. Praised yourself instead of criticized. Said “no” when you didn’t want to do something asked of you. Acted now instead of procrastinating until the last minute.

If there’s a map for reaching your highest potential, this list is a good place to start. It my seem daunting, so start with one or two.

I’m pulling for you!

Until next time,

Hump Day Wednesday: Make It Happen

good day

It’s going to be a good day! What would happen if this was your first thought as you lay in bed after waking up this morning? You’d get pretty much what you expected–even if some of it didn’t go as well as you wanted.

Lately I’ve been kick-starting my day with this very thought, and you know what? It really, really helps. Even when I had to pare down my manuscript during a sweltering heatwave, with tons of other things on my to-do list. I made up my mind to take each day as it came, put a positive spin on whatever happened, and make the day a good one. And I did, and finding the silver lining turned what could have been a dreary, oh, no! experience into something positive.

Starting my day with a slant on the positive, and finding the silver lining in whatever happens–this could become a habit. Give it a try and see what you think.

Until Friday, and wishing you a very good day,
