Awaken Your Day - Feb 10, 2017 - One step beyond ...

"I've always tried to go a step past wherever people expected me to end up. "
- Beverly Sills

What if you received a maximum 75% of a grade for doing exactly as instructed? For following the assignment and doing just what was asked.

Many of us could comfortably say we would have our 75%.

How many of us naturally take it upon ourselves, upon our desires, upon on drive ... to explore what comes with one more step. "What if I want more?" ... these people are known to ask themselves. "What if I try ...this ... or what if I apply a little more attention to that ... ?"

Doing just enough to cover the expectations can give you an average response, reward, return on investment. And then we "RE-peat". What can you do to dip into the additional 25% of growth, the 25% undiscovered, the extra step ... ?

Do we even know what lies beyond the 75% wall that we strive to reach. Have we even looked for the door that takes us beyond? Have we ONLY focussed on that average destination and turned the volume down on curiosity?

Good Morning, Greater Day. Greater You ... but one more step away.

Awaken Your Day - Feb 9, 2017 - Momma said ...

"There are more pleasant things to do than beat up people. "
- Muhammad Ali

Straight up simple. Should you find yourself greeting an ill feeling toward someone, something or some event today - or you are in the middle of such a moment right now - pause for a self bettering effect.
Ask yourself, "What would I rather be thinking about than watering these negative emotions?"
Pause to identify your state - Who What Where When Why or How - you got here. And ... is it doing me any good to stay here?

Where is the nearest exit from the path I am on? Because there are more pleasant things to do than beating down my energy.

Good morning, Greater Day. Greater you - choosing to find, the greater in you.

Awaken Your Day - Feb 6, 2017 - Do you hear what I hear...?

"To effectively communicate, we must realize that we are all different in the way we perceive the world and use this understanding as a guide to our communication with others."
- Anthony Robbins

Much like it is not so much what happens to us as much as it is how we respond to what happens, the same can be often said about How we hear what is being said to us or how we communicate to someone else.
Who What Where When Why are all important to be communicated accurately.... but dare not forget the most important... How.

Before you Express, set your communications up for Success.

Good Morning, Greater Day. Greater you - being properly understood.
