AYD - March 21, 2014 - Limit-Less Friday

"Limit-Less Friday" - Pierre

Must the week of keeping it simple.

Today... limit less in your life.
Do not limit your ability.
Not with thoughts or lack of belief, not with fears and certainly not with "But ....".

Take away one limit today.  How do i do that you say?  Well, first put some thought to it.

Try to identify at least 3 limitations we face in our life.  Better yet, go to ten so you can find some to get rid of and then see the energy of the exercise.

Identify limitations... then ask truthfully if they are mental or physical.

Not having 50,000 to buy a new Cadillac is a physical limitation.  Not looking past the physical to Think about how to get the 50,000 is a self made Mental limitation.

Which one can you remove... right now.

On your mark, get set .... Limit Less Friday.

Good Morning, Greater Day.
Greater you, shows others to believe they can remove limitations.

AYD - March 19, 2014 - In the Moment, For Them and For You

"Lipkinism:  The greatest compliment you can pay to others is to demonstate how thrilled you are to be in their presence."
- Mike Lipkin, Canadian Speaker, Motivator

We take it for granted really.  I dare say, we never think of it.
When we are having a conversation, are we aware of the impression we are giving? 
Do we look like we are listening? 
Are we engaged? 
Do we assure the other party that we are through our actions, responses, eye contact?

What happens when we notice someone we are speaking with is distracted when we are sharing something?
How do we feel when he or she is looking over our shoulder, peering at their watch, or giving that odd sounding, "Uh huh...Yeah....Mmmm"?

Now, have you ever felt put off by what appears to be total disinterest and then walk away .... without considering if WE do that to others?

I say alot on my way to a point.  I think you know that by now. I have been criticized for it.  I know how it feels when I get rushed along or interupted before I feel I have explained.  When my listener is not engaged and is two thoughts ahead.  It bothers me.  But I can respect that some of the criticism is justified and I can improve my conversational skills. 

This in turn, allows me to comfortably ask myself if I can improve my compliment to others and demonstrate my interest in our conversations.  What I dislike in others' demonstrations, I want to ensure I do not pay forward.  "Be the change you wish to see."

Be aware of just one conversation today, where you consciously ensure you are engaged, so that the other person leaves the exchange feeling complimented, from your demonstation of being in the moment.  The compliment is for them, and for you.

Good Morning,
Greater Day.
Greater you, once again, is a positive influence for others to share.

AYD - March 18, 2014 - You Inspire, Just Being You

"As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."
- Nelson Mandela

Fear of the day.
Fear of the meeting.
Fear of walking down the aisle.
Fear of the work it takes getting in shape.
Fear of the time it takes to learn something for us to grow.
Fear of learning to succeed.

And it keeps going....and going....

Fear of anything.  Large AND small.  As we overcome, often by seeing others, we then become a beacon that it can be done.  We become a walking, talking example of truth.  We become the reference for others as they struggle to convince themselves to take the first forward step and stretch the bands of fear that hold them still.

Fear of facing the morning.  Note... fear and discomfort can be like twins.  And you have never seen twins like these that get along so well.

So it is like we say here each day... Good morning, Greater you.  AND Greater you, inspires the environment around others to be great.

It can be a wonderful ripple effect.  And you can even find yourself in multiple ripples at the same time.  The best, is when it continues unnoticed ... and all these other parts of your day just begin to flow so well.

Good morning, greater day.
Greater you .... well now I am just rippling.

AYD - March 17, 2014 - Learning

"You learn something every day if you pay attention."
- Ray LeBlond

Some great lessons, are the most obvious ones ... just laying there to remind us after we push all the dust and clutter of Routine off the top.

So, today, try to pay attention to the new learnings.  It may be at work, something with the computer, an article in the paper.  If you do not feel like anything is sticking... ask a deeper question.  Ask Bob if he has kids, ask someone about the stock market, ask your grocer how long it takes nectarines to get here from Chile.

Look closer ... and open up to what you find, right there, every day.

Good Morning,
Greater day.
Greater you, has more to share with others.
