Awaken Your Day - Oct 3 - Results You Create

"In all human affairs there are efforts, and there are results, and the strength of effort is the measure of the results."
- James Allen

Sound like something you have heard before?

Like maybe.... You only get out what you put in?
Or... with hard work comes great reward?

This is not a coined idea. The concept has been around us all our lives. The question is when does the meaning take shape for us, so that we adopt the idea as part of who we are? When do we understand that it is a one size fits all template for all our effort, no matter what we are doing.

Learning to play sports, learning to play the stock market.
Setting a goal, making a date with a friend.
Going for a new job, or going for a promotion.
Planning a trip, doing renovations, trying something new, picking up something "used to do".

Name it.
You will do better, if you are conciously aware and enhance your efforts going in to the action.

The effort you put in, is directly measureable to the results you get.
Now, one day left in your work week. This applies.
A weekend of .... doesn't matter. This applies.

Reward yourself with increased effort.

Good morning - fabulous results.
I embrace my day and all I have to do.

Awaken Your Day - Oct 2 - Enthusiasm

"Every memorable act in the history of the world is a triumph of enthusiasm. Nothing great was ever achieved without it because it gives any challenge or any occupation, no matter how frightening or difficult, a new meaning. Without enthusiasm you are doomed to a life of mediocrity, but with it you can accomplish miracles. "
- Og Mandino, 1923-1996, Speaker and Author

This morning we have two powerful thoughts from the one. This is part of our growth as well, taking one message and seeing how it touches, and expands into other meaning, reaching like a flourishing tree branch, more and more toward the sunlight - inspiration.

We touch here on enthusiasm which for me this morning, was a nice "Ah ha" moment. All it takes sometimes is to see the word, and I am instantly brought back on track. Like a kaleidoscope I see the last few days of images flash before me showing me the lack of enthusiasm. Then the rush back to this moment, and a fresh breath and I feel I am in charge again. I am aware, and I am ready to resume control.

I picture walking into my office and I am not foreseeing conflict, but instead, accomplishment. I do not struggle with loose ends, I am busy with a 'plan'. I can hear the difference in the tone of my thoughts.

Secondly, Inspiration can find you anywhere.

I begin these mornings not sure what we will share here sometimes. And certainly, like everyone, there are days when I realize I am preoccupied with draining thought patterns. Worry, stress, anticipation, cluttered lists of action for the day, maybe a sense of unprioritized obligation.

And in a moment of reading a phrase, or a headline, or a goal, or like this morning, a quote - I am lucky to sweep off my "mental desk top" , to find underneath all that was a distraction, my passion. What it is that I am truly reaching for. And all that other stuff, slowly takes it's place is the order of what matters.

Call it lucky, or coincidence. I call it inspiration patiently waiting in the shadows. My faithful friend. How else would it know so often just where to find me, at exactly the moment I need it too.

Maybe, because earlier, I remembered to Enthusiastically, leave the door open for whatever my good friend, Inspiration, might bring by.

Good morning, and may you greet it with enthusiasm.

Awaken Your Day - Oct 1 - Making the Best

"I wanted a perfect ending. Now I've learned, the hard way, that some poems don't rhyme, and some stories don't have a clear beginning, middle, and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it..."

- Gilda Radner

And this is one of the underlying messages in all we do. What we strive to learn, and share thru all our little adventures. Making the best of it.

Even the adventure of getting out of bed and starting your day.

Knowing you have the option right now, in the first moments, to decide that you will take hold of the best that each moment brings, is a uplifting thought. Now remember that you have the power to make that decision last thru the day. What can you accomplish with that knowledge?

Think of it as a ripple effect. You begin on a high note, and then each encounter you have is altered by that state that you have chosen. Negative experiences get buffed and polished a bit, and positive ones get more appreciated and carried forward.

You may be having a tough go of it right now, or you may be on top of the world.

Whatever your situation or state, the moment offers the same opportunity. It offers you the ability to make the best of it. Your choice and your actions affect not only the moments to come, but all those people around you that are vibrating with the same energy you are.

Have a great day, and may it be an easy task for you to make the best of it.

Awaken Your Day - Sept 29 - Focus On You

"You have no control over what the other guy does. You only have control over what you do."
-A.J. Kitt

This is all about focus. Keep your mind on what you need to do for you, not what you need to do to keep up with someone else's success rate.

You cannot alter someone at your work, in traffic, at the grocery store, or even the telemarketer that calls at the wrong time.

This is one of those samples of how it is not what happens to us, but how we respond to what happens to us. We cannot stress this enough. The more we are aware of this, the more we touch on the thought at the times we need it most, and thus, the more control over what we do.

The same goes with your passion and desires and your quest for any success. You control what you do.

"I control what I do toward reaching my goals and attaining my success."
"I control what I do toward reaching my goals and attaining my success."

And with that simple gesture, of making it clear to myself, and repeating it, I have tapped into my awareness, touched an example and will now act on it.

It can be that simple. And in times of doubt, we stick together.

Good morning Partners, Seize the Day.
