Awaken Your Day - Sept 10, 2010 - Do You Hear Voices?

"None of us will ever accomplish anything excellent or commanding except when he listens to this whisper which is heard by him alone."
- Ralph Waldo Emerson

The one time it is okay to listen to the voice in your head.

And it all ties in with believing in yourself, and your goals. Believing what that little voice is telling you; that you can achieve, you can reach forward and obtain your desires and your successes. But you must listen to that inner you that whispers while there may be other sounds trying to distract you.

We can apply this to big scale items like a goal ... or we can simplify it down to something in your daily routine, like exercise. That little whisper is your conscience and also your cheering section. Keep your focus on your "Why" and let it guide you to what you Do want for results, while you might just be feeling for the moment that you Don't want to put forth an effort.

Right now your whisper is reminding you that it is the end of the week, and you will feel even better if you finish it strong.

Good morning.
Did you hear that?

Awaken Your Day - Sept 9,2010 - Gratitude

Your word for the day, and I hope you choose to embrace it, is Gratitude.

Try to show it. Try to feel it. Try to express it so others can receive the joy from someone being grateful.

To start you off in the right direction and to get the feeling warmed up, right now without thinking alot, come up with 5 things you are thankful for.

It could be your family, someone special, the roof over your head, your job, your friends, your health or the lack of an issue or dark cloud greeting you this morning. What are YOU thankful for?

Now, if you have your five, pause for a moment.... and now, stop to think of each of your five things for a moment each. Uninterupted focussed thought, so that you can feel WHY you are thankful.

When we pause life's busy pace for a moment and actually focus on something we are grateful for, it allows us a minute to once again truly touch it, and I dare say you will be Thankful that you did.

I am thankful for you, and that you share these mornings with us here.
Have a wonderful day.

Awaken Your Day - Sept 8, 2010 - No Worries

"Worry? I don't worry so much; I just figure it out."
- Larry Edward Foles

And that my friends is your wake up challenge for the day.
If you have no worries, we applaud you and challenge you to then assist others in figuring it out.

But, should you greet the day and find that a worry is trying to share your breakfast ... pause and adjust your thinking. If you redirect your energy from worrying to actually stepping back and taking another look, another angle ... you may just find a new path to overcoming the thought that is keeping you from enjoying that coffee.

Pause, identify and focus as you ask yourself, " What is the first thing i need to do to direct the this situation to a more comfortable path?"

One step leads to another, and a path may just show itself .

Have a great morning, and the rest will follow.
