It is, after all, your wonderful life

“Status quo is king.”

It’s your most formidable competitor, your greatest emotional pull.  It lulls you into believing “Don’t fix what isn’t broken?”  It fosters uncertainty and doubt – mental magnets that stop you from considering risk, and prevent positive change in your life.  Why not the devil you know than the devil you don’t?

Reject the devil you know.   It’s real name is fear.  Fear that grips your heart, keeps you comfy and complacent where you stand.  Fear that leads you to rationalize mediocrity,  and ultimately robs you of your deepest dreams.

To reach those dreams, you must overcome your emotional inertia.  You must break what doesn’t seem broken.  You must release the bounds of the gravitational pull that status quo has on you life.

It is, after all, your wonderful life.  Why not perfect it?

What’s next?

“No matter how far we have gone, or how much we have achieved, we are merely good compared to what we can do next.” – Jim Collins

Achieving excellence, acquiring mastery, becoming great – they’re are a process, a journey, not an end point.  There is no end point.  You either continually raise the bar or start the slide toward mediocrity.

What’s on your agenda this week?

Get a better view of you

“Stop searching for what you already have.”

In the movie The Wizard of Oz, Dorothy held the power to return home.  But she didn’t recognize it; she wasn’t aware of what she possessed until the wizard reminded her.  And then things changed.

You have amazing power. Take the time to become self-aware – to know yourself.  Get a 360 degree view of you.  Inventory the inner magic you already possess.

When you take the time to recognize the capabilities, knowledge and skills you already own, when you start to use and perfect them, life will change – noticeably, remarkably.

Keep it simple

“Don’t overthinkk.”

Simplify.  Get crystal clear.  Trust yourself.

Fear goads you into believing  you need to think some more, you need to overextend the process.  Fear feeds self doubt, and pushes you to conclude that things must be complicated to be right.

Think deeply, but resist the temptation to introduce complexity at the expense of simplicity.  If you can’t simply explain what you think, you’re probably overthinking.

In defiance of convention

“Prudence is a rich, ugly old maid courted by Incapacity.” - William Blake, from Proverbs of Hell

Moderation, caution, reason – words that seem so rational, so logical; yet words that, when applied to your life, hold you back.

Caution and moderation are the enemy of dreams, of excellence, of the exceptional life.  Reason and prudence justify mediocrity.

You decide, every day.  You can reason and compare and measure and weigh the risks.  You can stay safe and secure – standing firm in your indecision and incapacity.  Or you can take a chance, boldly step forward in defiance of convention,  and pursue your dreams.  Which will you choose?

Are you ready?

“The reality you experience right now has been created from your past thoughts.”

To change that reality, to introduce a new reality, you must change your thoughts. Everything you experience began with a thought. Those thoughts attracted into your life what you have today.

If you want better, more, different in your life, begin to change your thoughts. It’s a process. It’s deliberate. It often begins with subtle changes. Day by day those changes create a progression, a multiplication, a cascade of new experiences.

You won’t be ready for the life you dream about until you’re ready to change your thoughts. That’s when you begin the progression of attraction. That’s when – step by step – you start the flow, you draw into your life what you desire.

Are you ready?

Let go, and live

“When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.” - Lao Tsu

When we hold on tightly to what we’ve been, and what we are today, we limit our ability to see what we can become tomorrow.

When we let go of the regrets of the past, and move beyond the routines of the present, we can dream.

Dream.  See the future.  Give it design.  Let the greatest influence in your life become the pull of the future.  It is, after all, your wonderful life.

Life awaits

“I will not ‘should’ on myself today.”

Just do.  Don’t should or would or maybe try.

Moving ahead is about taking deliberate steps.  Moving ahead is not about the woulds and coulds and shoulds. Get over it, get going.  Life awaits!

Start today

“Do the difficult things while they are easy, and the great things while they are small.” - Lao Tzu

Start now.  Embrace the difficult task.  Complete it.  Then move on.  Difficulty expands its complex web when you choose to delay.

Likewise, small things, done well, with full engagement, grow.  They expand to become great accomplishments.  Do them.  Engage.  Today.

The new normal

“If you are always trying to be normal you will never know how amazing you can be.” – Maya Angelou

There is no normal; just statistics, conventions and comparisons.  Those who create and cultivate them are the ones who want to categorize you, to squeeze you into a box – keep you nice and safe and harmless.   They keep you from disturbing their sense of order.

But you won’t live in their box.  You defy their categories.  Every day you reinvent your new normal, because what worked yesterday won’t get you to tomorrow.  You’re on a different path, discovering just how amazing you are.
