Daily Post: Write down a goal each night.

Each day, make one small step toward your true choice living. Whether that is envisioning your dream, making a call you have been putting off, researching a nagging desire, wearing a brighter color, singing, beginning your search, or simply speaking the truth. Write down one goal each night before bed to do the next day. Do this each night for one month. You will be amazed how these small steps (I call them Mini Feats) add up to big changes. Look back at Day One in thirty days and see how far you have journeyed on your new road map.

Daily Post: Be your own detective

There is always an answer, a solution or a new pathway to a challenge you are having. When you look at your obstacles this way, rather than thinking this will never work, you will begin to see new opportunities and new ways of doing things at every twist and turn. Business is about finding that missing puzzle piece. You are like a detective always looking for clues. Take on this Big Picture Perspective, put on your detective hat and now the world becomes your oyster. You will always find exactly what you need to get the results you want.

Daily post: Work on it

Try writing down the phrase “I feel like a ———” and then toss out the first ten nouns that come to mind: pizza, orchid, sword, whatever. Now read over what you’ve written and see what rings true. Do you really feel like an orchid? In what way? Be as irrational as you can be. The less you keep the rules, the more your mind will begin to use words as vehicles to convey the sense of your experience, rather than as rigid structures that limit your thoughts and feelings.

Daily Post: Closer to your championship....

This is so true in whatever I do, life, relationships, career, running, you name it....

"The road to your championship will not be a smooth, wide and easily traveled freeway. 

No, great accomplishments are never realized without first having to endure steep climbs, hard falls and sharp turns. 

The key to your success is perseverance and focus. 

Keep your focus on that which you desire to accomplish, your championship, and continually discover ways to, and ways not to, achieve your goals. 

Fall down and/or get knocked down 10 times and get back up 11...,

and in so doing learn, grow and move closer to your championship."

Daily Post: TODAY

Outside my window, a new day I see
    And only I can determine
What kind of day it will be.

It can be busy and sunny, laughing and gay
    Or boring and cold, unhappy and gray
My own state of mind is the determining key,
    For I am only the person I let myself be.

I can be thoughtful and do all I can to help,
    Or be selfish and think just of myself.
I can enjoy what I do and make it seem fun,
    Or gripe and complain and make it hard on someone.

I can be patient with those who may not understand
    Or belittle and hurt them as much as I can.
But I have faith in myself,
    And believe what I say,
And I personally intend to make the best of each day.

Daily Post: What I believe....

I believe
you can be financially free.
I believe
in your economic independence.
I believe
you are always free to imagine, design and
 create wealth in your life.
I believe
that wealth is well-being.
I believe
having money creates options.
I believe
when you are unconstrained,
 anything is possible.
I believe
in boot strapping and micro lending
 and entrepreneurship.
I believe
in a world where everyone has enough.

Daily Post: Do the Work!

The bestselling author Terry Pratchett said, "The trouble with having an open mind, is that people will insist on coming along and trying to put things in it."  

Research by psychologist Dr. Travis Bradberry, shows that the greatest entrepreneurs, artists and leaders have a closed mind when it comes to their work. No matter what people say about them or their work, they are like a postage stamp and stick to it until they get there.
They don't let criticism and rejection devalue what they do. They realize that their value doesn't decrease simply because of someone's inability to see what they're worth.
In his book Daily Rituals, author Mason Currey says that great minds do their work every day, even when the desire for doing so has left them. The people who change the world often regard themselves as being unimportant, but regard their work as being all-important.
They commit to their one thing, their purpose, and despite an infinite number of variations in their daily schedule, great minds structure their lives to ensure that they create:
  • Marcel Proust wrote each morning in bed surrounded by food and alcohol.
  • Before settling down for work in the evening, Einstein would prime his creativity muscles by going out for a walk.
  • Beethoven would start composing in the bath and would only leave the bath once he was in full creative flow.
The conclusion is simple: do whatever works for you, but do it every day.
As one of my favorite teachers used to say, "Don't be disappointed by the results you didn't get, with the work you didn't do."

You are unique. You are funny. You are stunning. YOU ARE YOU! You are intelligent. You are amazing. You are talented. You are a gift from God. ‪#‎InternationalWomensDay‬ ‪#‎women‬ ‪#‎empowering‬
