AYD - June 7, 2013 - Don't Just Think About It...

"When all is said and done, more is said than done."
- Lou Holtz

So today... DO something.

Do something so that when someone asks you how your day was, your reply will be, "Wonderful. Thank you for asking.  I can't wait to tell you about it!"

Good morning, Great day.
Greater you, means a better environment for others all around you.

AYD - June 6, 2013 - Self Respect Keeps on Giving

"Respect yourself and others will respect you."
- Confucius

Often, the simple wisdoms we received from the past, are the most true and easiest to follow.

Simple message for a good day.

Good morning, great day.
Greater you, means a better environment for those around you.

AYD - June 5, 2013 - What you don't see can teach you more.

"More often than not, a hero’s most epic battle is the one you never see; it’s the battle that goes on within him or herself. "
- Kevin Smith, Actor/Director/Author/Entertainer

There are two messages to "take away" from this today.

First, consider the movie actor you like so much...or the musician and band, and then the sports players that make it look so easy.

Behind every 50 goal scorer, 4 time champion, best defensive player, platinum selling artist, grammy award winning, "Thank you to the Academy" - is years of hard work, self leadership, internal development, team building and desire, determination and so on and so on.

We get the benefit of all that hard work.  People who are in those fields, understand the background...the lead up... the intensity and the sacrifice and from there, it inspires them.  You, can use awareness as your comparison and put yourself into that catagory.

It does not take much to know how they got to be so good as to be recognized as the best in their field.

So...take away the opportunity to be aware of the road to the greatness for your favorites and your mentors.

Now, secondly, recognize some of the battles you have endured within that OTHERS have not seen, and do not know have lead to your own successes of any size or shape.  What did you meet head on in order to achieve some of what others see in you or your achievments ?    And... have you underestimated your Battle Ability and delayed even more success because of it?

Point to ponder on this Wednesday... I know I sold myself short... and today, is not going to be the same.

Good morning, Great day.
Greater you ... well, let's just see how people respond to a greater you...shall we?

Husband...and planning to be a better one, Daddy...and taking action to be a better one, and Author of better day... Here I come.

AYD - June 3, 2013 - I am what I am ...

"It's not who you are that holds you back, it's who you think you're not."
- Borrowed from a quote - no author.

Ask yourself what you want in life, and it may not be easy to identify it.  But ask yourself what you don't want, and you will have a whole list.  Use the Don't Want to help you shape and define what you do.

Not alot different when it comes to who you think you are or who you could be.  List who you don't think you are...and then look at each one and see how that thought is preventing you from reaching who you want to be.

We really can be our own obstacle.

Becoming aware, allows us the opportunity to overcome.

Good Morning
Great Day.
Greater you, shares a better environment for all those around you.
