Let your goals be big ones but get your satisfaction from one day well done. If your eyes are too far ahead on the prize, today’s passion remains unstirred. But when you see the goal as the sum of your best today, repeated, your engine is fired up. Break down your actions into manageable chunks of 'I will do this today', but also break down satisfaction, one day well done is the sweetest of pay.
Our ideas need acted on, not thought out beyond a doubt. It’s acting on a vital spark that brings your greatness out. Failing isn’t failing, it’s the tool of victory, the try, try and try again of bringing thoughts into reality. Get ideas out into reality, in all their wondrous, faulty form. Set to failing and failing again, and let this be your norm.
Too often we blame distractions for keeping us from what we are avoiding. Scape goats appear to block our path to take the blame for our avoidance, noise, children, parents, phone calls and anywhere else we can find annoyance. 'Where we are' is not about the room that we work in, it’s where we are inside ourselves that all the work begins. If you want something done, do not wait for when it’s right. Grab the heart of A to B, and do that with all your might.
Do you want to change your life? Change your morning. Transform the little things you do each day, your daily best is habit forming. If you change your morning choices your cards fall into place. You are what you decide to be, your morning habits change your days, and your days become your years. So do you want to change your life? Change one tiny little habit in tomorrow’s morning light.
All great things take their time and nothing gained overnight will last for very long. Trust that in doing your daily best no time is lost or effort gone. Patience is a proactive skill born from knowing why you’re persisting past drudgery and repetition, when it seems that time is resisting. When your why is far greater than the moment of strained boredom or the self pity of effort unnoticed, your patience kicks in like a blanket resolve, and you return with your purpose reloaded!
Life can be hard and we don’t feel like winners everyday, but do these daily practices and you’re winning anyway. The fact that I write this everyday carries with it one huge truth; do these simple practices and consistency is yours! Harmony from inside out, the eye inside the storm, the one foot in front of the other, the breath when things go wrong.
When tuning in to intuition don’t strain to hear the answer that you want, be still to hear the answer. What you want and what you need are often different things, and your gut feeling does not consider what is easy when it’s choosing. The journey through discomfort to follow what YOU KNOW is right for you becomes a rich and rewarding process that you’re pleased to struggle through.
Have you ever needed a nap whilst doing what lights you up? There is an unbreakable and unquestionable link between energy and inspiration. Doing what you love is nature's way of lighting up, transcending tiredness, and over filling that half empty cup. So today, do what you love and see your energy abound. You doing you is the endless fuel, in the everlasting now.
Self esteem is built from estimable actions, it’s not dished out at birth. From doing things you feel are worthwhile you define your worth. Retrain esteem by small victories of doing worthwhile tasks seen through, from deciding to completing, these small wins will rebuild you.
Don’t wait for others to make you happy, treat yourself for daily joy! Focus on the things you love, ignore what can annoy. Happiness can be found in a cup of tea, reading, talking, laughs, driving, walking, cooking, running, cold drinks in too hot baths. We can treat ourselves to wellness with the little things we do, so treat the one you love to wellness, treat yourself, yes, you!
