Why not today?

Why not one a day?

 

Why not one totally terrifying task today?

One task that’s far out of your comfort zone.

 

Why not that one task you’ve been putting off,

that you’ve dancing around?

That one task that pushes you over the edge,

and pushes you closer to an important goal?

 

Why not make it a habit?

Why not push yourself to try one difficult

task every day, and see where it takes you?

 

The only way to change your life is to change

your life. Why not today?

Raise the value of your YES

Grow some

I’m saying NO.   I’ve been too easy. I’ve pleased

too many for too long. I’m moving past old notions

of insecurity and hesitancy, and just saying it.

I’m saying NO to consuming meaningless internet.

NO to mindless meetings and events. NO to substances

that fog my mind. NO to time-wasting and toxic people.

I’m saying NO to a lot more too.

I’ve found that when you say NO, you raise the value of your YES.

Focus on those who love you

 “Generalized fame is overrated.”  – Peter Thiel

 

Kevin Kelly was on the mark in 2008.  He still is today.

You don’t need a million followers; 1000 true fans will

do quite well.

 

Think strategic.  Focus on those who love you and

resist wasting time and energy trying to please

everyone.

Is ego your enemy?

 

You can’t learn what you think you already know.

You can’t move ahead bound in the shackles of ego.

 

Ego exacts a heavy price, creates a heavy burden.

Is it not better to be successful and happy than right?

Be flexible on the details

Be uncompromising on your vision, but flexible on the details.

 

Focus on your purpose, keep your vision top of mind,

and be ready to fill in the gaps.

 

Learn to bob and weave. Roll with the punches and then strike

when the opportunity arrives – because it will.

 

You can’t plan all the details, because life always brings surprises.

But you can prepare, you can stay receptive, you can be highly self

aware.

Most will settle for less

Never stop learning

Most seek entertainment, not enrichment. Most seek diversion rather than development. Most settle for average instead of extraordinary.

Extraordinary people pursue continual education. They seek to learn, to hone their skills, to improve their knowledge and expand their capabilities.

Your unparalleled preparation is what gives you power, what enables you to be extraordinary. Few will pay that price, most will settle for less.

Change it, now

When something isn’t right in your life, change it.

Pronto. Do it now. Do it while it’s top of mind; before you start to think and rethink, and think some more.   Do it before you mentally stammer and hesitate. Why later regret that you didn’t act when you had the chance?

When you choose to live in the present, there is no time like now.

Thoughts are just thoughts

Thoughts are not facts

They’re just thoughts. Next time you jump to a conclusion, and feel yourself spinning into a negatively charged spiral, step back. Check to see where your head was when you made your conclusion.

Are your thoughts true?   Are they absolutely true?  How do they make you feel?  What would your life be like if you didn’t hold on to them?

Put some space between you and your reaction to your thoughts. Change your relationship between what you happen to think at the moment and what is factual, what is true. Become more mindful.

Listen

Listen as if your life depended on it.

Because it does. It does in more ways than just trying to hear if there’s a train whistle blaring as you approach a crossing.

Relationships unravel, opportunities are missed, careers implode – because we fail to listen. Listening is part of paying attention to life – paying attention to what’s going on in the moment. I’ve been guilty of not listening. I’m sure you have too. The consequences are too often disastrous.

The prerequisite for living in a state of joy is being aware of your now. It means getting on high listen as well as using all your other faculties. It means self-monitoring what’s going on as you engage with others. It means maintaining focus on not only your now, but how you respond tomorrow to what you heard today.

Listen, and in doing so discover life at a higher level.

Begin now

Don’t prepare. Begin.

The enemy isn’t your lack of preparation. The enemy is your chattering brain. It’s your brain telling you to wait, hold off, practice some more.   It’s all those nanoseconds of mental noise telling you that you’re not quite ready. It’s the deluge of alibis and excuses, of you justifying why it’s not yet time.

Move past your hesitancy. Resist the chance to draw back. You’ll never be fully ready, you just need to be ready enough. You can catch up once you’ve started. So begin. Begin now.
