Be a benefit to those you see and talk to.
Certainly do not sacrifice yourself or be untrue to what you believe in. However, do focus on the good in each person and circumstance – and share the good in you with others.
With that in mind, you will be a benefit in others’ lives – guaranteed. And the benefits to you will be enormous.
People are feeling challenged by many things today and many aren’t sure if it’s even worth doing anything to change their circumstances.
Often deep down inside, they see the value of transforming their situation, but lack the courage to do much about it. That’s where you come in.
First, give others your full attention and listen with your whole heart. Second, find ways to respect the other person’s life. And third, from that respective, share stories that show how others have done what they want to do.
As you encourage and inspire the other person, watch what happens to you.
It was once said, “The ocean is made of drops.” So are your dreams.
If there is something that you really desire but are intimidated by, all that stands between you and your dream.
Realize that you control the pace. You can take lots of steps or just a few at a time. It’s all up to you. Either way, you will make progress as long as you exert yourself each and every day.
Enjoy your progress today,
Do you usually have hope?
Sometimes circumstances can hide hope under a cloak of doubt and fear, yet it’s always there if you look for it. There are hopeful stories everywhere – even in the midst of challenge, tragedy, and sadness.
The next time you need a little hope, ask for it when you self-reflect, pray, or meditate. Then listen. Your answer will likely show up in the voice of a friend, family member, colleague, or stranger.
Kindness is an easy thing to share in theory, but quite another thing in reality.
Fear, greed, and ignorance can be powerful barriers to sharing our loving kindness. “What if the other person rejects me?” “If I give to him will there be enough for me?” “What could I possibly give to her?”
Yet getting beyond those obstacles will yield considerable rewards to you and others. So go out and share your kindness. Start small and enjoy the benefits..
Ever finish a goal and feel a little let down?
It’s not a big surprise because most of what brings true value to your life is the learning process itself. While goals help motivate you to advance, the endless learning process provides opportunities to feel competent, confident, and successful.
So what will you learn today?
Have a great day,
Ever do a great job on something and then not receive any acknowledgement for a job well done?
While sometimes recognition is not part of the culture, it could be something else. Was your project worth doing in the first place? Did it contribute to a goal valued by your organization?
If not, no matter how well you do something if it’s not worth doing, it likely will never be rewarded.
So what project or activity could you work on next that is valued by you and your organization? Proceed with care, commitment, and capability.
Have a great day,
Many people believe that they don’t have enough money, must get more, and really will only be satisfied when they have more than enough.
What that means is different depending on who you are and where you start. Yet one thing is universal – “more than enough” is vague, indefinite, and unreachable regardless of who you are.
So if you are frustrated by never having more than enough – consider what they would actually be. In the process, you might find that you have more than enough right now.
Have a wonderful day,
Think it’s time to move on from a job or relationship?
If it’s not clear to you, here’s one strategy that virtually always works.
Do your very best where you are in ways where you add value and harmony to yourself and the team. Doing a great job doesn’t block but only increases your ability to know if and when the right time comes to move on.
So do you best and reap of the rewards of greater confidence, sense of purpose, and wisdom.
Do you sometimes put things off until the last minute and then nearly crash and burn to get the task done on time?
Many procrastinators underestimate the time required, but there is another way.
As soon as you take on a new project or assignment, complete at 10-15% of it early on. Then you can estimate how long the whole project will likely take and set an appropriate pace. This will give you a better perspective, more freedom, and greater peace of mind.
Have a great day,
