Do it right

“You need a little bit of insanity to do great things.” – Henry Rollins

And sometimes more than a little bit.   Insanity, that is,  that’s viewed and defined by those satisfied with the status quo.  That kind of insanity is genius.

If you’re not being viewed by the miserable majority as slightly insane; if you’re not being viewed with some level of disdain, you’re not doing it right.

Do it right.  Embrace, cultivate, and nurture a little bit of insanity. Then go out and do great things.

Truth or hype?

“Don’t believe everything you hear, even in your own mind.” - Daniel Amen, MD

Sometimes the enemy is you.  Sometimes you don’t think, you don’t cross-examine your ideas, you don’t interrogate your self-talk.  You believe your own hype.

Are your thoughts helping or hurting your forward progress?  Are they taking you closer to where you want to go, or drawing you further away?   Are they blocking you, or motivating you?

Pause. Take the time to think.  Take the time to think critically.

What’s the question?

“I wish everyone could get rich and famous and have everything they ever dreamed of, so they could see that it’s not the answer.”  – Jim Carrey (tweeted by Jerome Jarre)

Being broke and unknown isn’t the answer either.

What is the answer?  More importantly, what’s the question?

To see anew

“The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes.” - Marcel Proust (encore)

Quit making excuses.  It’s not about geography, neighborhood, living space, environment.  It’s less about where you’re working today, the classes you’re taking, the challenges you face.  You’re already standing in the midst of your own acre of diamonds.  Open your eyes and see anew.

Everything you need to start moving head is either inside you or right in front of you.  Learn to become aware – self-aware, and aware of right where you stand.  Dial up the frequency, tune in the radar.  Get your attractors energized.  Become receptive to possibility, and start the discovery.

Are you willing to see anew?

Why elude your grandeur?

“For if there is a sin against life, it consists perhaps not so much in despairing of life as in hoping for another life and in eluding the implacable grandeur of their life.” – Albert Camus

Get personal with this statement.  It’s about the implacable grandeur of your life.  It’s about you and your unstoppable magnificence.  Unless, of course, you choose to ignore or disown or abandon that majesty.

Every day you choose.  Will you – today – become a reflection of your magnificence?  Will you grow your greatness?  Or will you abandon the resplendent gift life offers, and settle for less?

No showmanship required

“You can make more friends in two months by becoming interested in other people than you can in two years by trying to get other people interested in you.” – Dale Carnegie

When you work too hard at making you look smart, clever, and hip, you risk diminishing and minimalizing the worth, the intrinsic value of those you’re with.

Get out of center focus, release the ego, and start winning friends and influencing people by being a genuine person.  Show more interest in others than yourself. No showmanship required.

Your focus becomes your reality

“Always remember, your focus determines your reality.” - George Lucas

What’s on your mind today?  What’s your priority?   How you focus your mind determines what you get from your day.

Focus on drama and you’ll wonder why you spent so much energy to get so little.   Focus on personal growth, getting results, adding value – you’ll be amazed.

What do you want from your day?

Cultivate your greatness

“By encouraging the critic in you, you diminish the artist.”

Be very careful.  Don’t kill the genius in the process of trying to perfect it. Confronting reality is one thing, distorting it is another.

Learn to love, cultivate and perfect your greatness, not subvert and diminish it in your inner dialogue.

Keep raising the bar

“Never fight a battle where nothing is gained by winning.” - General George Patton

If you’re not gaining ground – every day – you’re falling behind.  Put your energy into moving forward, not standing still.

Far too many people waste precious time and energy with matters that result in no gain, no value added to themselves or their world.  Don’t live your life as the poster child for some crazy, combative character in a reality series.  Seek higher goals, put your efforts into raising the bar, not lowering your sights.

Transmute your imagination

“You manifest what you believe, not what you want.” - Sonia Ricotti

Your beliefs create your world.  It’s not enough to just want something, you must believe you can and will get it.  Beliefs stir action.

Everything you can imagine is real. But imagination must transmute into belief to become actionable and achievable.

Believe, and make it real!
