INSPIRATION….

“…..Inspiration is typically viewed as something that comes and goes. Some days you “feel it” more than others.

But what if you could be deeply and unconditionally inspired everyday? I bet it would make a difference in the quality of your life. You would probably wake up excited to start your day. You’d get more done, be more creative and feel more of that elusive “flow.” Being inspired also means enjoying the process more, instead of feeling forced and unnatural.

The best part of persistent inspiration is that action tends to be effortless. There isn’t so much trying, rather you’re more simply being and allowing whatever action is natural to flow out from you.

HOW FAR CAN YOU REACH

Most of us just wait for inspiration though. We passively anticipate our muse, instead of actively seeking it out.

“You can’t wait for inspiration. You have to go after it with a club.“

~Jack London….”

As always wishing you a Fresh Start Everyday!!

Don’t put off until tomorrow that which you can enjoy today!

The clock is ticking, you’d better start living!

A BIG THANK YOU

Thought I would share this article with you guys, as I know its always nice to feel and be appreciated.  How often do you say thank you and actually mean it.  Or do you feel used by your loved ones and unappreciated.

The next time you say thank you to someone, make sure you really mean it, and as Mr. Colan says, start tomorrow by expressing your thanks to those closest to you.

I’m starting RIGHT NOW:)  THANK YOU ALL FOR LIKING THIS PAGE!!

Two Words to Motivate

By Lee Colan, PhD.

How do I really motivate my team, my kids, my spouse, my anyone?

It’s an age-old question with a myriad of different answers… too many to even summarize here.

So, in our information overloaded world, let me boil it down to this. If you want to motivate, then appreciate. The two most powerful words for any leader, parent, teacher or colleague are “Thank You!” I added the exclamation point to make sure we really mean it when we say it. Don’t just say it to get something in return—that’s called trading versus thanking. Say it because you mean it, because you appreciate what someone has done, but more important, because you appreciate who they are. We do more for those who appreciate us.

We have an annual day of Thanksgiving but, I challenge you to:

Start tomorrow by expressing your thanks to those closest to you.

Then make thanksgiving an everyday event.

For me, I sincerely THANK YOU for your support and encouragement!

What is Your Focus

Focus on What You Want

focus on what matters

“A good intention clothes itself with power.”
— Ralph Waldo Emerson

Our minds are incredibly powerful. We put that power to work for us when we consciously set an intention to be or do something. Get into the habit of consciously setting an intention for activities throughout your day.

Your intention might support efficiency – for example, to complete a job or project by a specific time. Your intention might support your personal growth, e.g., to undertake a task that scares you. Or it might support more soul connection, e.g., to be grateful for gifts we take for granted.

When we take the time to set an intention, no matter how trivial, we are consciously choosing what we want for ourselves. With consistent attention, your intentions will come to life!

“By becoming a conscious choice-maker, you begin to generate actions that are evolutionary for you.”
— Deepak Chopra
