Look at things as they can be

Monday, October 14th, 2019

Look at things not as they are, but as they can be. A big thinker always visualizes what can be done in the future. She isn’t stuck with the present but lives in a world of possibility. So, look around you today and see what is around you. Then ask yourself, “Huh, what could be here? What could be created? What if we lived in a powerful way? What would we make happen?” Then from that vantage point – take action.

The Magic of Thinking Big

Monday, September 30th, 2019

David Schwartz, the author of The Magic of Thinking Big, told us that, “Success is determined by the size of your belief and if you think little goals you can expect little achievements. If you think big goals, you win big success.” Big ideas and big plans are often easier. Sometimes, they’re certainly no more difficult than the small ideas and the small plans. So, think big about what’s possible for you and then get about it! Start making big things happen today.

A Master is never defensive

Monday, September 16th, 2019

A master is never defensive. Instead, a master actually likes the learning that comes from being challenged and it’s actually an enjoyable, educational process. See, mastery means turning down the defensiveness that comes naturally to all of us. Defensiveness looks like when someone challenges us, trying to take the stand of being right. But we can be happy, or we can be right. We can’t be both. So, the next time someone challenges you, it’s a great opportunity for you to learn through humility by saying, “Tell me more about that, I want to understand.” As opposed to taking the stand that you’re right.

I am Responsible

Monday, September 2nd, 2019

Union analyst James Holland says, “The moment we say, ‘I am responsible. I am accountable. I have to deal with this.’ is the day we grow up. At least until the next time, the next regression and the next evasion.” Interesting quote. So growing up is something we do every day when we take on challenges that we had been unwilling to take on in the past. But when we step into that level of accountability, that’s when we’re living with our power. And that’s what he refers to as growing up. So how do you step into your power today to take on the things that you see going on around you that you know just aren’t quite right? Make it happen today.

What do I need to “step into?”

Monday, August 26th, 2019

What if you asked yourself today, “What do I need to step into?” Well, what does that mean? Step into means you’re probably doing some things the way you’ve always done them before and that’s okay – except it’s going to get you what you’ve always got. So if you want to have a different result, you’re going to need to step into something different. Choose to do things differently than you’ve done them in the past. But that doesn’t happen until you ask yourself the question every day, “What do I need to step into today?”
