It’s All Coming Together

A couple of questions for you:

When you’ve been working really hard to accomplish something, but then you run into a problem or something goes wrong, do you treat yourself to junk food?

If the answer is yes…

Are you more likely to eat ice cream OR smash an entire bag of chips?

Personally, I do both because I’m a believer that we get to eat whatever we want AND have at least two hours of “pouting time” when we’re disappointed because something has gone wrong.

My plan always is to limit this pouting time to just a couple of hours, but during that time I’m relaxing, chilling and eating ALL my pouting food.

It’s great. It’s not healthy. But, I don’t care. And here’s why…

I only end up pouting for a couple of hours and during that time I’m also actively working through doubts, frustration or any other negative thoughts the Chief Negativity Officer in my mind is focusing on.

And then that’s it.

After the pouting time is over, it’s time to recharge, outshine the Chief Negativity Officer, and get back to the work of taking steps forward to accomplish what we want. [Read more…]

Making Enough Progress? Try This New Approach

Lately, there seems to be a common feeling a lot of people are having…

Enough is enough. It’s time for things to finally fall into place.

Or, as one of my friends said the other day, it’s been a long uphill climb and it’s time for some WINS! I know I agree. Do you?

Well, if you’re with us and still waiting on certain things to work out, then here’s a good motto to LIVE by that will be amazingly helpful…

“Focus all your energy not on fighting the old, But on building the NEW.”

-Socrates

Yes, as off the wall as it may sound, I’m recommending we live our days according to ancient philosophy. Of course, this isn’t just any ancient philosophy… it’s Socrates. That’s about as good as it gets when it comes to timeless wisdom.

So, how do we practically live by this philosophy?

We decide our new daily motto is: “Building the NEW”. [Read more…]

A Simple But Powerful Thought To Have Today

Ifyoualwaysdoo1200600

Last week I came across an article about the movie Groundhog Day. Do you remember that movie? For some reason, when I first saw the movie, I didn’t really like it.

It’s ironic that I wasn’t an instant fan of the movie because my birthday is actually on Groundhog Day every year – February 2nd;-). And, interestingly enough, the movie is about one of the most important lessons we can ever learn. Guess I missed that!

But, as the article put it… “The movie Groundhog Day is directly and practically applicable to how we spend our day today and everyday.”

A Quick Recap

In case you haven’t seen the movie, Phil, the main character, is trapped in what I call an “Infinite Loop” so every day is pretty much the same. It isn’t until he realizes that he needs to do things differently that he finally stops repeating the cycle and lives the life he always wanted.

So, while I was reading this article last week, I was reminded of how easy it is for anyone to fall into this trap where you unknowingly do things day after day that are working against you. Thankfully, most people aren’t as blinded to the truth as Phil was in the movie.

But, have you ever noticed how you can get used to doing things the same way you’ve always done them?

Whether it’s with work, or in a relationship, or something we’ve been working to make happen in our life, we can end up unknowingly repeating behaviors, habits and doing things that aren’t actually helping us get the results we want.

It’s All Preparation For Better Things

A couple of days ago, I was sitting in a coffee shop scrolling through my Facebook newsfeed and noticed this quote was an extremely popular post:

I think this quote resonated with a lot of people (myself definitely included) because it’s something we can always benefit from being reminded of.

Every single situation you’re working through today is preparing you for better things … including the problems, challenges or anything else.

The situations we’re dealing with, in one way or another, are preparing us for something better – something we asked for, hoped for and wanted for our life.

It’s that simple. It’s that clear. [Read more…]
