Master of My Fate and Captain of My Soul

 

When Henley wrote, “I am the master of my fate, and I am the captain of my soul,” what he failed to mention was that it’s true because we have the power to control our own thoughts.

Change Your Routine, Change Your Life

Is this your last day on planet Earth? Probably not, hope not. And yet you never know.

There is no guarantee how long we get to go around this planet. But the reality is that we can make every day we live on this planet our masterpiece by creating opportunities and seeing possibilities and living vivaciously as if this could be our last day on planet Earth.

Yet many people plod along, they wake up in the morning, they make coffee, they drive to work, they punch in, they do their job, they punch out. They drive home, they watch television, they eat dinner, they go to sleep, they wake up, they make coffee, they drive to work, they punch in.

They’re not making their life a masterpiece.

We have one chance every single day to start from scratch, to create opportunities that could change our life forever.

Decide to make today your masterpiece.

No stories, please

Business is filled with obstacles that we need to overcome and get through. The only thing that really works is an inner drive with complete commitment along with innovation and an unstoppable approach.

The Perfect Cosmic Accounting System…

 

Go Above and Beyond Without Asking

Remember the last time someone on your team really had your back? I mean, the time where they really looked out for you.

Doesn’t that feel good when somebody looks out for you, steps in, and goes above and beyond without you even asking? You know what that feels like to be on the receiving end of that.

So what if instead, you became the person who had your teammates’ back? And that you consciously found ways—and chose to execute on those ways—to make sure that you’re stepping in to make their lives better; to help them be more successful in their jobs; to have their back when they’re in trouble.

What would that feel like for you? Yes, it’s going to feel great for them—but I’m asking you this question: What would it feel like for you? Ah, it’s going to feel good, isn’t it… Why?

The World has a Perfect Accounting System

Life gives to the givers and takes from the takers; the world has a perfect accounting system. What an opportunity that we have to make conscious choices about having others’ backs.

So this week before you say “Thank God, it’s Monday” again, set the intention that you will reach out to make a substantial difference in at least three of your co-workers’ lives by having their back and going above and beyond the call of duty.

Isn’t it fun to surprise people?

Have some fun! I can’t wait to hear the stories about what you did…
