Awaken Your Day - Jan 5, 2018 - Let good words sink in.

"In the end, only three things will matter: how much you loved, how gently you lived, and how gracefully you let go of things not meant for you."
- Jack Kornfield

While your mind and intentions are still set on the New Year, and new starts - it is a good time to spend time with examples of how you love, some gentleness in your living, and what kind of burdens and conflicts you can release.

Identify and become aware. Then you have the sight to make the decisions very clear.

Good morning, Greater Day. Greater You - just putting in some self time.

Awaken Your Day - Jan 4, 2018 - Wonderfully Said

“The real value in setting goals is not in their achievement. The acquisition of the things you want is strictly secondary. The major reason for setting goals is to compel you to become the person it takes to achieve them,”
- Jim Rohn

Easily one of the most complete and favourite comments I have ever read. This is so much part of the philosophy behind AYD, and what I have been learning within.

Enjoy the Journey to all the things you want in your life.

 It takes practice to do this - don't get me wrong. But it starts with growing our awareness so it becomes more automatic to you, more second nature to be in this mindset - and in there we start to see things differently.

Maybe this is where my belief started to take shape. Start by Awakening Your Day by your rules and your pattern for Success, and the rest of the day will fit that mold, as You Shape it.

 Good Morning, Greater Day. Greater You - all along the way.

AYD - Jan 3 - Something Borrowed

Something Borrowed - due to computer glich and my fading memory this morning, please enjoy this rerun from last year while I try to retrieve the million dollar wisdom statement I had planned for today. Good morning.

Awaken Your Day - Jan 2, 2017 - Yes You Are

"You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think."
- A.A. Milne, Author

Reflection. Sometimes we need to look back in a moment of quiet and actually look at how far we have come, what we have lived through, what we have endured and in all that, how we have grown.
When we do this we find confidence in our abilities as we see from a different angle, those life experiences we have journeyed through.
Life has given you challenges - and you are now more brave to stand up to new ones that present themselves because of rising above before. You are stronger emotionally, and with your self worth because of those challenges - all of them. And we often do not see how life smart we have become, until we look back and recall our decisions along the way ... to get us through, to get us over, to get us excited and motivated.
As you begin a new chapter now, do not just make promises of good intent to relieve some self created pressure. Look at what you truly have within you to make these "promises" achievable ... introduce yourself to the HOW and WHY you will succeed and then watch your plan become much more believable to You.

Good morning, Greater Day. Greater You - yes, yes you are.

Awaken Your Day - Jan 2, 2018 - Practice and Repeat

As you start a new year, week, task, search or goal or day ... one of the most amazing and ROI giving skills you can practice is listening.

One of the greatest things I have ever heard is the often quoted expression, that most people do not listen to understand, they listen to respond. So often our brains are already mounting a comment, argument, rebuttal and debate before we have absorbed and processed the incoming communication.

This is in our work, and our homes. In our conversations and when listening to the radio and reading headlines in the paper.
With our work relationships, and with our loved ones.

It takes but a moment more to get all the details - to hear the tone, to take it all in. And then, have your turn.

The value to be gained can be immense.
Listen first to understand, and not to respond.
If you are not convinced, watch how you feel when you get short changed before you made your point.

Good morning, Greater Day. Greater You ... hearing it through.
