Quiet

There is something peaceful about early morning before the busyness of the day begins. We need quiet in our lives to clear our minds and our thoughts.

Quiet makes some people uncomfortable. They revel in the noise. I encourage you, if you are one of those people, learn to be comfortable in the quiet. The noise of the world will always be there waiting for you to return…

Ask!

Are you fulfilled in your life? If you answered yes, congratulations! But if your answer is no, you have the power to change your life.

A fulfilling life has nothing to do with money. It’s about service. Serving others changes you. There’s something magical and unexplainable about the feeling you get when you do something for someone who can never repay you.

If you aren’t getting all you want from life, ask for more. Then go do the work…

Dirt

The National Enquirer was founded in 1926 as a legitimate news source, but subscriptions didn’t take off until the late 1950’s when the publication morphed into a sensational tabloid. It seemed The Enquirer had found it’s niche.

Why is there an appetite for getting the dirt on famous people’s lives? They are just like you and me with families, friends, struggles, successes and heartache. Perhaps we like to focus on the lives of others so we don’t have to look at ourselves. Or maybe we empathize with their plight and realize, they are just like us.

Introspection is the difficult, but worthwhile way to go. Leave the lives of others alone, and keep the focus on building your life…

Satiety

Satiety means you have had enough. If someone you know is treating you rudely, or abusively, or any other wrong behavior, you will eventually hit your satiety point with them.

Conversely, when someone treats you well, with loving kindness, you want more.

Spend your time with those who enrich your life, not the ones who aren’t good for you…

Mistakes

Everyone makes mistakes. Every day. There’s even a series of books for “dummies” that are designed to keep us from making mistakes when we are learning something new!

Our past mistakes or the fear of making a mistake shouldn’t prevent us from trying and learning new things. They are part of the process.

When was the last time you tried something new? Why not make it today…

Failure

We fail at things every day. But how you define failure will determine if you really have failed or not.

Your failures don’t define you unless you allow them to. Having a success mindset means you are willing to accept some failures along the way. When you understand this, you will be free of the fear of failure and you become unstoppable.
