Awaken Your Day - Nov 30, 2017 - This is worth some thought time.

"When I'm old, how much would I be willing to pay to travel back in time and relive the moment that I'm experiencing right now?"
- Muneeb Ali

Kind of stopped me in my tracks when I thought of it.
We talk often about where we have been, how that can help shape where we are ... and it might be an easy trap to get caught right in the here and now. This is one of those questions that helps us to keep moving, keep improving. To keep pushing our life experience. Not because we are not satisfied, Rather, we just need to stay aware of the idea to make each chapter in this life worth it.

And of course, I could go on and on and on ... but you get it. So let's make the day worth the price of admission - and get a story we can share for chapters to come.

Good Morning, Greater Day. Greater You ... gaining value on your time spent.

AYD - travel rerun day. Because what I said before - still applies. Good morning. Nov 29, 2017

Awaken Your Day - Nov 23, 2016 - 15 min can change your life.

"What you do today can improve all your tomorrows."
- Ralph Marston
Don't just read it and run along your merry way.
Think about it for a second.
Making time to applying yourself to something now, brings visible benefit later. So obvious, but many of us miss it ... because we simply do not think about the need and the connection.

So let us put it in motion in a simple way. Do an experiment. Draw your attention to something you want to achieve -something you have on your list that will be beneficial when it is complete. Let's say, you need to do some reading to learn something for your career or business. Once it is learned, once you have it, you can use it for growth. Let's say reading a book on your skill.

Now, dedicate 15 min a day out of your busy day toward that. Do this for a week, or two, and you will see a lot of growth and what feels like very little expense or effort. Done right, and you should feel energized to continue with this non-invasive investment. You will feel momentum. The book is done, knowledge gained, schedule uninterrupted ... and your batteries will be charged for more. Knowledge will compound and increase skill and ability.

What we do today ...

Good morning, greater Day. Greater You ... today.

Awaken Your Day - Nov 28, 2017 - In The Beginning... there was a start.

“Don’t be afraid if things seem difficult in the beginning. That’s only the initial impression. The important thing is not to retreat; you have to master yourself.”
- Olga Korbut, Gymnast – four time Olypic Gold Medallist

This can be applied to many things we do that are new to us.

But focusing on our journey of Personal Development, we sometimes need to remember that this is not a race. It can be tough, for once we find that desire to make a change, we rush in headlong with excitement only to discover some stumbling blocks…and then discouragement sets in. Often, this is the end of the path. The charge falters. And we struggle.

This is where we just need to keep in mind, that this Path was designed with many Points of Interests. Like a tourist, we have a destination, but there are many places along the way to stop and take in the sights.

Good Morning,Greater Day. Greater You ... enjoying the Journey.

Awaken Your Day - Nov 27, 2017 -

“Victory is not about First Place, we are victorious when we learn from the experience and improve ourselves for the next challenge.”
- Rickson Gracie, Member of the world famous Gracie family in Gracie Ju Jitsu.

As it is in sport, it is also very applicable to everyday life. I am constantly reminded each day to reflect on the lessons of yesterday to help me take the next step toward a goal, or to get through a difficult task.

Each step you take toward achievement, is a form of victory; especially if it is one more than the last attempt.

Each and every goal you set for yourself and attain, is a victory. You may not get there on the first try, but that does not diminish the achievement.

Good Morning, Greater Day. Greater You - with every step.
