Awaken Your Day - A Mirror tells a Story, May 7 2010

“The voyage of discovery is not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes.”
- Marcel Proust

How do you see yourself?

One of the greatest joys I have discovered on this voyage, my quest to Personal Prosperity Development, is simply how I see myself. How I have come to clearly see what qualities I had hidden, waiting to be…discovered.

In many ways, I feel like a large clean canvas – waiting for the artist’s brush. And the beauty of this thought, is that I never knew I could paint. I closed my eyes one day, and then I opened them to this person I had somehow never met.

My voyage led me down a jungle path to say the least. But it feels like an adventure as I discover my self hidden treasures. Within me I have found Passion, Belief, Confidence ( THAT was a great day ). I have found Desire and a Mission. I have Purpose. I have the power to create my destiny.

My old eyes did not see these things. These pieces of me, all the while, waiting to be found so that I might use them to uncover more of what this glorious life has to show me. So that I could see this life’s landscape with new eyes.

How do you see yourself? Are you confident that you have considered all that you have within you?

I challenge you this morning, to look at yourself with new eyes. I give you a clean canvas. And now … paint your portrait or the landscape of your life – using Only every quality you possess.

Close your eyes to the doubts and questions of yesterday. Open them this morning.
I believe your Voyage is well under way.
Enjoy your weekend. Spend some time on you.

Awaken Your Day - Butterfly Effect - May 6, 2010

Coming to the end of our "History Sessions" soon...and moving into New thoughts for New Days shortly. Hope you have enjoyed revisiting some of AYD beginning sessions these last few weeks, and you are ready to take on new Awakening moments to chart your energy thru your days.

“How do we change the world? One small act of random kindness at a time.”
- Morgan Freeman, as God, in the movie ‘Evan Almighty’

Inspiration can find you anywhere. It helps if you are open for business.

Some nights I over-think my work. Last night after dinner my wife and I sat down to relax and enjoy a movie together. While I did bring some notes to the room so I could look them over, I actually didn’t do anything but kick back and enjoy the movie and the time to ourselves. And then, a simple line I know I have heard somewhere before, comes in at the time in the movie when it all comes together. “One small act of random kindness at a time.”

A score of reflections and memories came to me of times when I did something little for someone and I felt good remembering the gesture. And then more memories came to me of times when some stranger did something extra for me, and I felt good remembering the gesture.

It takes very little effort to make a difference. Ponder how great the difference can be if more of us made the same little effort.

Have a great morning.

Awaken Your Day - Oops, a bit redundant. - May 4, 2010

“Circumstances may cause interruptions and delays, but never lose sight of your goal. Prepare yourself in every way you can by increasing your knowledge and adding to your experience, so that you can make the most of opportunity when it occurs.”
- Mario Andretti, Race car Driver

Not everything goes according to plan. That is fine. Often an obstacle jumps out at you like some little creature on a video game, or a ghost in a twisted suspenseful movie.

“AAgghhh ! I didn’t see that coming !”

It is not the end of the trip. You do not have to start all over. All is not lost. As we will repeat over and over again – One step at a time.

Even if you must here the clichĂ©, “Slow and steady wins the race,” keep in mind that any forward movement is toward your goals. That forward movement includes increasing your knowledge and awareness of your destination. Even reinforcing your energy by reviewing how far you have come on your journey – it matters too. It counts.

A weekend stands before you. I suggest you enjoy it in every way possible … and I expect that enjoyment to include you taking a couple of steps of any kind toward your desires.

Circumstances may interrupt you, but if you stop cold … that is your choice.

It is a good morning – hold on for the ride.

Awaken Your Day - One Step , May 3, 2010

“The victory of success is half won when one gains the habit of setting goals and achieving them. Even the most tedious chore will become endurable as you parade through each day convinced that every task, no matter how menial or boring, brings you closer to achieving your dreams.”
- Og Mandino, author.

We have already shared this philosophy on some of our other mornings. Worded differently and from some other respected opinion. But what better comment is there to revisit at the start of our work week? One goal at a time, big or small, begins with one step at a time. Progress is to be your focus. The road that lays before you for any task you face, any goal you wish to achieve, can be so much more exciting for you to tackle, when you look behind you and celebrate HOW FAR YOU HAVE ALREADY COME.

You are well on your way to opening some doors in Opportunity Monday.
Good Morning
