Picture this: You are working toward a goal, but you don’t get to where you said you were going to be by-when you said you’d be there. And, out of frustration, and maybe even embarrassment, you stop working toward that goal. You get stuck! So, let me ask you this: are you a bad person for not reaching your goal by-when you said you would? Absolutely not!!

Every single person on this planet has been through this type of scenario in their life, and if they say they haven’t, they are lying. Don’t allow yourself to get stuck by what you haven’t completed. Instead, recommit to getting what you say you want, have a plan that includes specific by-when dates, be in action, ask for help and accountability, and never ever give up!

Just a thought.

Simply take the negative out of the definition of impossible, and you get the definition of possible. Now, consider what it would be like if, when you are feeling stuck, you changed your thinking from negative to positive. How much more would you be able to accomplish?

Your mind is an incredibly powerful and creative “make it up machine.” If you use it wisely and choose to be positive, eventually your life will become more positive; the impossible becomes possible, and it is in possibilities that what you want to accomplish and who you choose to be is limitless!

Just a thought.

Have you ever been standing somewhere when, all of a sudden, music in the background gains your attention? Your foot starts tapping and your backside might even wiggle. You find that your shoulders begin to slightly move side-to-side and a little smile makes its way across your face. Those things are exactly what happened to me when I came across Pharrell Williams’ 24 Hours of “Happy” video.

Sometimes all it takes is a smile, a catchy tune, or snappy dance moves to lighten your mood! Yes, at times circumstances totally stink, but they only have the power to consume you if you allow them too. So, check it out: www.24hoursofhappy.com

Get happy and help others get happy too!

Just a thought.

Have you noticed that where you are today is the same place you were on January 1st? And, if that’s the case, why? For most people the answer lies in a lack of commitment and accountability. So, ask yourself: “Do I really want what I resolved to have and do on January 1st?” And, and if the answer is “Yes!” then you need to ask for help and accountability for doing what your plan says. If your answer is “No!”, no problem! Simply get centered around what you really, really do want, write a plan for getting it and do what the plan says. It really is that simple!

Commitment, planning, and accountability are key to you having the life you say you want. So, what are you waiting for?

Just a thought.

Have you ever thought about the amount of time available to you? Yes, a large portion of that is spent on the necessities of sleep and providing food and shelter, but what are you doing with the remaining time available to you? Your life is meant to be lived to its fullest. Create and live a plan that brings what you say you want to fruition, and have fun while you’re at it! There are millions of seconds in each and every year just waiting for you to make the most of them. And, every second that goes by is a second you will never get back. So, what are you committed to doing with your time?

Just a thought.
