There is only one YOU for all time. Fearlessly be yourself!
How Attractive Are You?
What Stories Are In Your Head?
Have you ever anticipated a bad situation that turned out to be good? For example, you think the next time you see your old boyfriend, you will have an argument. Then when you actually run into him, you’re glad to see him and feel nothing but friendship.
That’s because we build stories in our minds based on old emotions, self-doubt and fear.
Another example – You’re going on a job interview. You’ve already decided you won’t get the job. Then you’re surprised when they hire you. Your emotions were built from believing you’re not good enough.
How do you pull away from the fear and anxiety of future events? Face those situations without any expectations. We don’t know what other people are thinking. We don’t know how they may have changed since our last encounters. After all, haven’t you changed over the years?
This doesn’t mean every situation will be positive, but we can lessen the stress of anticipation…the stories in our heads.
Face situations without expectations. You’ll be glad you did!
Perseverance Makes a Difference!
A project I had created ten years ago recently came to fruition. Over the years, I had felt disappointment, frustration, sadness and anger over this broken dream, but I persevered. When the work was finally produced, I felt elation and pride.
When you have a dream, PERSEVERE! Goals have a way of working out at the right time in our lives.
The only way to lose a dream is to give up. So when you want to give up on your hopes, don’t. They may not come when you think they should, but they come when you need them the most.
Keep your dreams alive. Persevere!
Do You Exercise Your Brain?
Maturing does not mean you’ve hit a glass ceiling in learning! Pick up some non-fiction books you find interesting, look for puzzles that excite you (Sudoku is a good one), memorize a lengthy poem, or challenge yourself to learn three new words every week.
Staying sharp is part luck and part genetics, but just like a knife, you have some control over sharpening your own brain. The benefits are improved concentration and memory, and mental clarity which enhance our lives greatly. Mental push-ups will ensure success in all your endeavors.
Try it. You’ll be glad you did!
Do You Procrastinate?
We tell ourselves we are thinking it over, when in truth, we are afraid to make a decision. Instead of procrastinating, choose a decision. Try it. If it doesn’t work, try another solution. If it works, hooray!
Have you ever said, “There are not enough hours in the day”? Sometimes we feel like that, but the truth is we have enough time to do whatever we want.
What’s the trick? Dump the waste!
How much time do you spend playing Words with Friends? (I’m totally guilty of this!) Is this more important than making your shopping list? How about the time you spend on Facebook? You can lose hours of your life there.
Here are some ways to make the time you need:
~Walk to the grocery store. You’ll do your food shopping and get your exercise at the same time.
~Limit your social media and game time to an hour or two in the evening. You’re likely to have all your chores done by then. This can be your “Me” time.
~Create a prioritized To Do List every day. You won’t waste time wondering what you should do next.
In other words, complete important tasks and let the other jobs go. Combine duties whenever possible.
You’ll be glad you did!
