Awaken Your Day - June 5, 2017 - I'm Just Getting Started

"You don't have to be great to start but you have to start to be great."
- Zig Ziglar

"Begin and Believe" - Pierre Couturier

Sounds so simple right. Maybe that is why we often overlook it.
Think of something you want to do but have not yet. Something simple or something big - results will be the same. You are going to start working toward it.
A little each day. Where you can fit it in - but you MUST fit it in. A mere 15 minutes per day. You can do that. You shouldn't have to deny yourself that over everything else.

Now ... one more thing. Enjoy the start.
Be happy you are on your way. Remember every minute you can apply to this thing you wish to do, is a minute of successful enjoyment on your way to doing it. The overall will be alot of work, but not this little portion. This little part is your plan today, that is all.

Skeptical? Try it with a book. Or a tutorial. Enjoy what you are doing. Be glad you began.
You will thank you in a very short time.

Good morning. Greater Day.
Greater You - gaining from smaller and more tasty bites.

Awaken Your Day - June 4, 2017 - Sunday Thoughts

"My therapist set half a glass of water in front of me. He asked if I was an optimist or a pessimist. So, I drank the water and told him I was a problem solver."
- Unknown

We are in a battle daily and we do not even know it.
The potential enemy is First Impression Auto Response.
( You are trying to sound out the acronym ... don't because you just proved the point.)

 There are a lot of things that come at us in a day that have now become so routine (like clichĂ© use and things like half full half empty) that our response defaults to an immediate Impression template from all the other times and we auto respond without a pause to evaluate.
I had heard the old half full half empty speech so many times that I was numb to the meaning. I didn't really and honestly consider how it applied in a new moment and what I might get from it. The phrase came along and I was reminded to decide on how I felt in the moment. Until somebody said something about, " that is the right amount of mix now where is the vodka?"
You have a Sunday before you. And since there is no NFL today to allow you an excuse for Sunday Automatic Pilot - I suggest you go to battle. Drink the water where you can. Find every glass around you today and determine what "problems" you will solve.

Good morning. Greater Day. Greater You....turning off the Auto Responders.

Awaken Your Day - June 2, 2017 - Mr. Zulu, Engage Self Drive

What have you done for you lately?
Wish Again?
Ponder what might have been?
Say .."It's too late to start now" ?

Take action.
Any action.
forward moving action.
Delay excuses because I'm too busy .... taking action.
Enhance self awareness by saying "Geez I'm tired - so i should get up and do something."

So ... now what does your Friday look like?

Good morning. Greater Day. Greater You ... putting yourself in Gear and pushing forward.
