Recognition

We live in a “look at me” culture. Being the center of attention has overtaken common sense in some cases. Do you remember the so-called “influencer” who videoed himself licking a public toilet bowl? He has no influence over me.

Focus on doing what’s right, being kind and compassionate without worrying about getting the attention. These characteristics never go out of style…

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…

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…

Stories

We assume things. For example, when we meet someone who reminds us of someone else, we have a tendency to treat them like the other person they remind us of. This is called projection, and it’s not right or fair. Each person needs to be considered individually for who they are.

Don’t get caught up in the stories we tell ourselves. You might miss something…

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.
