You are Ingenious!
Now before we begin…
Grab a glass of water …or your favorite beverage- I’m drinking filtered rainwater…
Let’s take a moment for some perspective… stop and breathe.
Close your eyes for a moment…
Interesting question today –
Think of 3 areas of your life you would love to impact?
Got the 3 areas, it could be physical, financial, family, social, spiritual or learning?
Just pick your Top 3 areas you would like to see a change!
Ok? You name it and write it down.
Now – If you could think of anything… you want to achieve in the next 30 days In each of those 3 areas what would it be?
It’s ok to dream a little! – You deserve it!
Have you ever put off getting a reward, until you had completed something?
I had a friend who would schedule his morning and no matter what happened, he would not have lunch until those things on his list were completed.
Some days it was 2 or 3pm or later he finally got lunch – and He always got things done.
So when do you get your reward?
Some people think taking action deserves a reward.
Mmm interesting… I grew up with this belief.
My mother worked from home, she would have a busy day or a difficult customer and after the customer had gone – she would go and get a reward of a couple of pieces of chocolate. (Writing this now – I used to treasure catching her with the chocolate – so I could have a piece too.)
I didn’t realize till recently, its easy to reward the wrong thing.
You see – I had been trying to start a business for many years.
I would take action move forward and come across a brick wall and stop.
And I would reward myself for taking action. A bit like my mothers chocolate reward.
I was listening to my daughter who was in the middle of teacher training. We were watching a movie on Tuesday which is movie night…She said, Mum I deserve to watch a movie I haven’t done anything like that for 6 weeks.
So I asked her to look not at what she had done, but what she had yet to accomplish…
That is how you measure accomplishment…
– Forward looking…what needs to be done yet to finish!
– Backwards glancing…look at what I’ve done!
Recently I was watching the road push bike racing in the biggest race of the year the Tour D France – a passion of my husband’s and his enthusiasm is so infectious the whole family ends up watching it.
I found it was always interesting watching the finish line and those racers who were forward looking to racing to the finish line.
The rider who was compelled to backwards glancing – it was not often a backwards glancing person would win the race… the focus was in the wrong area.
I would stand up and yell at the television to the rider – don’t look back!
Be forward looking and reward your accomplishments!
How are You going to – accomplish your 3 items in the next 30 day!
Create a great day!
Enbrace, Encourage, Empower!
Remember – Caring for the Whole World Includes Caring for You!
Congratulations! – On Taking this moment just for You!
Stop by again tomorrow!
