Awaken Your Day - Feb 27, 2018 - A Duel ( Original Post July 28, 2009)

Quick, short and simple today.

I challenge you to a duel...or should I say I invite you to participate in a duel. Between the "Have" and "Have Not". Between the "I Want...I Wish... I Need" and the "I Have...I Did.... I Achieved".
Every time you see something today that you want, or you think of something you need ( training, material thing, feeling ) I want you to list - yes...actually write down - something that you have already achieved .

For example - I wish I could have a new car. And... I bought and have paid off my old car.

Our mission today...is simply to recognize the skills we have already displayed to get to where we are and to have attained steps and things that we wanted in our lives. Once we recognize that we already have the skills to achieve, we can begin to push ourselves to reach for the next level of our goals.

In recognizing our achievements we stand a better chance of harvesting further belief in ourselves and our abilities to grow further.

Good morning, Greater Day. Greater You - winning a battle of perspective.

Awaken Your Day - Feb 26, 2018 - Only One You (Originally shared July 2011)

"There is only one you...Don't you dare change just because you are outnumbered."
- Charles Swindoll

Five things.
Five unique things about you ... that you honestly like about you.
Five things.
Five other unique things, that you are proud of about yourself.
Five minutes.
Five minutes to acknowledge you.
Sometimes, it is a well deserved moment that we take, to just sit back, breathe a relaxed breath...and take stock of some of our achievements, and our attributes. A moment we overlook all too often.
There is only one you. Get reacquainted.

Good Morning, Greater Day. Greater You -
Knowing You.

Awaken Your Day - Feb 25, 2018 - The way I see it...

" The way we see the problem is the problem. "
- Steven Covey, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People

It is always beneficial, to take a moment away from a stressful environment, and breathe.

Pause for perspective. Imagine time has stopped and all you can see is frozen still. Now walk around the situation. Take your time. Examine the snapshot while you have "stepped" away. Allow thought to flow without the strain of rebutal or need to be explained. Look to understand.

Is our view complete? Do we see all the details from our position? Are we responding from a point of vantage, or from an inner podium of emotional charge? Are you still comfortable from your angle?
It is not always about right and wrong. Finding solution is very gratifying.

 Are you willing to be part of the solution...to what may not be a problem at all.

Just be aware of the value in a personal "time out".

Good Morning, Greater Day. Greater You - Clearing your Vision.

Awaken Your Day - Feb 24, 2018 - You have the Power

"I used to be", means you already know How to be.

 Those things you miss don't need to be a wish.
Think about it.

Good Morning, Greater Day. Greater You - revisiting your toolbox.
