Pay it forward

You attract what you project

Pay it forward.

When you consistently help people over a long enough timescale, the karmic dividends start to show up.

The key is to help others by doing what you love.

It’s not about sacrifice, it’s about sharing your love.

I’m not missing the mark

It’s either “hell yeah” or no.

I don’t straddle the fence.   I’m fully in or I take a pass. One thing I’ve learned:  never say yes to less.  It’s an easy out, but it’s a fool’s paradise.

I’m over-committed.  I’m too busy.  We’re all over-committed already, all too busy and focused on the journey – fully intent on the desired destination.  When we keep saying yes we get distracted.  We get lost and miss the mark.

I’m not missing the mark.

Let go of what’s not…

Promote what’s working – not what’s not

You don’t succeed by persistently promoting what’s tanking.

Success is about inventing, improving and bringing to market what works.   Let go of what’s not.  Never play with a loser’s hand.

Confront your fears and release your sentimental attachments.  Success happens when you let go of what you once loved and move on with what’s working.

You’re worth more…

“Invest your time, don’t spend it.” – Jeffrey Gitomer

Time is precious.   Use it to elevate your circumstances, use it to raise the quality of your life.  Why waste it devouring the news?   Why not avoid the gossip, fear mongering, and hate that feeds most headlines?  Why become an expert in negativity?  Why not spend more time in things that enable you to influence the outcomes you truly desire?

When you spend time on all the negative stuff it downgrades your mood, compromises your self-talk,  and distorts your view of the world.  It can lead you to mis-imagining your future.

You’re worth more.  Junk the headlines and do more investing in you.

I want hearts…

Tell me you love me

I want to connect, to love, and be loved – with many, by many.

I want to share my lovemarks with the world.  To make a positive difference in the lives of those I meet. To alter the course of events where I can be a positive influence, a change agent for good.  To shift the trajectory of our universe if necessary.

I want to lead, but only because I’m someone worth following.

Some need recognition, some want fame.  I want hearts, not just eyeballs.

The second life begins…

“We have two lives.  The second one begins when we realize we only have one.” – Confucius

We live in a temporary home.  We wear a meat suit with an expiration date.  We have a life to pursue, accomplishments to create, and work to complete before we reach that unknown day.

Where are you on your timeline?  What in your life, what in your dreams,  remains work unfinished, remains work still in progress?   If tomorrow you were told you had six months to live, how would you design the rest of your life?  What priorities would you change, what would you do differently with the days that remain?

But only if you change

Failure is good – but only if you change

Failure has been a positive, enabling experience for me.   I’ve learned from it, I’ve changed.  I’ve become more self-aware of my thoughts and actions.  I’ve refined my resilience, asked better questions and sought better answers. I have changed the way I’ve looked at situations, and have seen the situations I’ve looked at begin to change too.

I’ve had to close the door on the past, get over the fear of possibly failing again, and start stepping forward one more time.

I’ve let failure be my teacher, not my undertaker. Failure may create delay, but I refuse to let it create defeat.

Don’t discount you

“Until you value yourself you won’t value your time.” – M. Scott Peck

The corollary is that if you don’t value your time, how will you get anything meaningful accomplished?  When you value you, you value your time, and you create value with the time you have available.

How you value time – how you make use of that gift –  is a window into your soul.  It reveals a clearer image of your self-esteem and sense of self-worth.  If reveals just how much you love you.

Don’t discount you.  Love yourself more.  Value you, value your time.  You will both create and discover greater value in your life in the process.

Make time for you

Lose the leash

Take time to drop out. Get off the grid and get in your own zone. Make time for you.

Withdrawal from the electronic intoxicants, let go of the need for constant input. Get focused on what matters.

You need time to stay alone with your thoughts. You need time to think critically. You need time to sit with your discomfort and discover the boundless possibilities that technology has obscured from your view.

Every day you need time to unplug, jettison what distracts, and see the bigger view. That’s when stuff starts to get done.

Again and again

Practice

Not once, not three times.  Maybe fifty.  Maybe more.

It’s not about perfection. It’s about not settling for less than what you’re capable of.  It’s about mastery.

I admire Penn Jillette, the renown magician.  He once took six years to master a three minute trick. It sounds extreme, but that’s why he’s world class. That’s why he lives in a different universe than everyone else, and he’s  the ruler of that universe.

Want to rule your own universe?  Practice.
