Awaken Your Day - May 26, 2017 - Only You have the power to prevent ...

"Your problem is not the problem. Your reaction is the problem."
- Robert Rhau

This is one of the greatest things a person can learn. I have shared this comment in different words, shapes and with assorted levels of intensity, but it all comes down to this ... it is not what happens to you, it is how you respond.

Things are going to happen. Some beyond our control, some we can plan or prepare for and then there is just all the other clutter stuff that life adds to the map.

So all this is good to talk about... but like most things, if we do not apply this right now to something we lose the awareness on the point. Your job today - identify a problem you have right now. Be it with a friend who has done you wrong, or something at work, an issue with your child or family of somekind, your car won't start, you burnt your lip, stepped on a lego, or forgot to change the cat litter.

Anything !!!

And now ... understand .... your reaction to your problem has this crazy power to control you - in the moment, in the day or if you are really annoyed maybe all weekend and into next year. It can control you and how you impact others right now.
It was just a lego. It hurt. It's done now. 
Now What ?

Good morning. Greater Day. Greater You, commanding and showing the Greater You.

Awaken Your Day - May 25, 2017 - Growth Decisions

"The only way to change your life is to make a decision and change conditions."
- Robert Pino

Now the first mistake many may make is they will read this and focus only on something negative in life that needs fixing. And it does not have to be just fixing or repairing or sorrow that motivates us.

You can be happy as can be and just wish to grow - and it still applies - a decision has to be made and conditions need to be changed.
It does not have to be deep soul searching but if you wish go ahead.

For me for example, I believe if I make a few small but significant changes, these will in turn compound into more positive growth changes and benefits.

So this morning, I am signing up - FINALLY - for some priivate swimming lessons. I am 46. I love the water .... except when I sink. And I sink very well, so I would like to change my conditions.
No sink no more. No. No likey panic in water...no. Fish swim good. Be like fish.

Something simple to add to your growth. The day is yours.
Good morning, Greater day. Greater you just because there is so much more to find in you.

Awaken Your Day - May 24, 2017 - Repeat

"Success is the sum of small efforts - repeated day in and day out."
- Robert Collier

As I have said, it is never enough just to read something motivational and say, "Golly Gee that makes sense. What a nice thing and so true!" One has to pause and apply. Listen and enact. Read is the action... next is your reaction.

I can say this because I am constantly reminding myself of the very thing I need to do as well.

So, start simple. What do you want and what are you doing to get it .. daily? What little baby step could you do today and repeat tomorrow that will compound to your eventual achievement.
What could you accomplish toward your goal... if you gave it 15 accumulating progressive minutes per day for a year?

You have done nothing so far so what will it cost you to think long term.... but consistent? Worth a shot.
Now... repeat....

Good morning, Greater Day. Greater You, again and again and again.
