Building the New

Thesecretofchange(1200628)You know those times when we’re trying to accomplish something we really want?

Maybe it has to do with our financial situation, work, relationship, health or some other personal goal. Whatever the case may be, we are in one place in life, but we really desire to be in a better place.

We’re ready for a breakthrough.

A lot of times when we’re working through times like these, it’s not obvious what our daily “game plan” should be. So, if today you’re trying to get certain things in your life to change or fall into place, here’s a plan that always works. It has helped me push through some of my toughest times and it’s also helped me accomplish my biggest goals.

The Daily Game Plan

One of the most important things we can do today is focus on “building the new”.
What this means is that today you direct your thoughts, attention and energy toward one thing: figuring out your best steps today that will move you closer to what you want and then taking them.

Sometimes our minds try to focus on doubts and worries. Without even realizing it, we can end up wasting a lot of time during the day worrying because of all the negative mind chatter running through our minds that’s weighing us down.

But, if we’re intentional about using the day to build the new, it helps us direct our attention to the moment in front of us and what we can actually be doing right now. We send our minds on a positive mission searching for our best steps. This helps us stay focused on the right things so we can make continual progress.

A simple saying to say all day today to stay focused on the daily game plan of “building the new”:

1. Breathe.
2. Relax.
3. What’s my best step right now? [Read more…]

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

Focusallyourenergy1200628

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.
