"It takes Teamwork to make the dream work."
- John Maxwell...

Opportunity Monday, is back.
For many this day starts off as Overwhelming Monday. I dare say only because many believe the negative hype and accept the sterotype turning it into a self fullfilling prophecy of negativity. One, against the mighty Monday Bully.

So if you are one of those that think you are standing alone against the Mighty Monday Mountain, maybe you have to come to understand that you are not alone.
All you need to do is offer up a moment to the concept of a Team.
Who are your teams?

Your Team at Home - always there as your foundation.
Your Team at Work - they have all been there.
Your Friendships Team - a little supportive listening always helps.
And often the never thought of, Your Team of Skills that you have put together over time and can get you through more than you know.

Monday is just the beginning of the game, and your chance to take a lead on your To Do list, right here and now. Gather your teams - lets see if this week we can go Undefeated !

Good morning, greater day.

"A good life is when you assume nothing, do more, smile often, dream big, laugh a lot, and realize how blessed you really are with what you have."
- Zig Ziglar...

Well, that's part of it. But for a Friday it is a nice little snapshot to let your mind go and let yourself consider the things that make YOUR life good. Maybe as you plan a busy weekend with all the things you need to catch up on in your home life that you don't have time to do during a work week ... maybe, you need to make sure you have allowed some time for self care. Time to do a little more thinking and acting on a goal or dream, time to relax so you can smile and laugh .... or time to walk through the house and say "Ya ... I have made a good life." Stop and enjoy the moment you have created. You earned it.

Good morning, greater day, Good Life.

"Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience."
- Mark Twain...

I could really over explain this and spend a lot of time defining and drafting a picture of what the S word really looks like.... but if you consider it for a few minutes you will, as you should, create your own definition for it.
So your mission, should you choose to accept today is simple but meaningful.
Pick your battles. Consider your foe, be it human, work, schedule, situation ... pick your battles wisely. You will win in the only way you need to at that time.

Good morning, greater day, and stronger you.

Hint Hint. Nudge Nudge. Spoiler Alert.
You can have a 'good' day... or you could create a 'Great' day... with one ingredient.

Great morning.

“Build someone up. Put their insecurities to sleep. Remind them they’re worthy. Tell them they’re magical. Be light in a too often dim world.”
- Aplus.com...

The year is fresh. We are trying to be fresh starting, and ignite new goals and dreams. We share those goals with others, and in so doing, we quietly hope to gain support for we know the road ahead will not be an easy one all the time. It feels good to achieve, and it feels good to know we have friends or like-minded people cheering us on in our new personal investment venture.
While we try to focus on personal change and expansion, and we invest new energies with our best foot forward, may I suggest that we take note for a moment of how we are or could be that same support for others. Part of our success is in how we diversify that personal investment, and share our energy with others. Be the support we hope we will find while we share and express what means a difference to us. Look around you, and see who may need that extra 10% emotional capital boost. Who needs you to be their backer for a dream that may seem to many as out of reach, but with just that little push from you … can put dream reality at their fingertips ? I dare say, 10% of your focus invested in another, could bring you riches in seeing their potential take another step.
Have a wonderful day.

"May all that has been reduced to noise in you, Become music again."
- Some internet picture...

This time of year always brings our awareness back to some unfinished business and puts the topic into our focus list. While we tend to strive to identify something we wish to change, I challenge us to look a little deeper. Find your "I used to ... " topic, or your "I miss doing ... " topic and look to reignite your passion in it. Touch again the emotions that this part of you used to bring, and let it inspire you to Joy yet again. For me, it is writing AYD and thus my goal for this year is to write and remember all the ripple effect benefits it brings to my life, my loved ones, my personality and my passion. For you ....
