Slow It Down

Slow.jpg

There’s a definite art form to living your life to the fullest. You've got to be open but structured. Speak up but be a good listener. Go after something but stop if it's the wrong something. What I'm saying here is that you really have to live your life from a place of center.

Know what makes you tick. Know when you need a push. Back off when enough is enough. Don't let your feelings stop you if you need to keep going. If your feelings are helping you experience something you need, feel the feeling and response appropriately.

Living life like an art form isn't easy, though. You're busy driving, working, dealing with stress over money, or lack of time. And, health and energy dictate your output. In other words, it doesn't matter how much you want to do with your life, if you feel depleted of energy, it won't happen.

If you can't structure your life now, don't beat yourself up about it. Your life is asking much of you -- and all at the same time. But at some point, I need you to stop that runaway train. Sooner rather than later you'll need to chop up, break up, or squish up all the things keeping you from the life you're meant to live.

Go Look

List.jpg

I want you to do something for me. I want you to go back and look at all your previous goal lists, New Moon intentions, prayers, astrological predictions, your journal, anything and everything you have that’s a record of something you asked for.

Now, did anything that you asked for happen?

If it did happen, congratulations. If it didn’t happen, ask again.

Just don’t stop believing that you can have what you want.

This Makes Me Happy

Integrate.jpg

My favorite word of the day? Integrate.

As I work on different pieces — and different platforms — for a new project I’m currently working on, stuff either works together or it doesn’t.

When it doesn’t integrate, I hit a dead end. When it does integrate, I get to move forward.

But, I’m REALLY excited because the last three pieces did work together so I get to move forward. Woo hoo!!!

(Can you imagine this topic is something I’m excited about? As in, tell a total stranger while having coffee excited?)

It's Not You

A_Problem.jpg

When you’re faced with a problem, it can make you feel bad about yourself — if, for some reason — you can’t figure it out. You might then think of yourself as stupid, incompetent, maybe worthless.

But, a problem needs to be identified for exactly what it is — a problem. And, the process of trying to solve a problem can be difficult.

And, sometimes, a problem has the power to stop you in your tracks. You know…avoid, distract, or divert.

That can leave you feeling really bad about yourself. Like there’s something wrong with you.

So, what can you do about it? Cut yourself some slack. Simply see it for what it is.

The problem is the problem. It's not you.

Pump Up the Energy

Walking.jpg

We’re often told that if you have a specific purpose that you care deeply about, it will give you tremendous energy and tremendous resources. This is true. But, it’s not true for everyone. And, it’s rarely true for me.

An example of when a purpose provides energy and resources is when you see someone in the news talking about ending childhood diseases. Perhaps their own child had suffered, and they’ve made it their life’s purpose to change the death rate for sick children.

An example (in my life) of when a purpose I care deeply about does not provide energy and resources is when I’m working on creating stuff. It could be the contents of an article, correcting a web page, or designing a new program for solopreneurs.

So, if you’re someone (like me) who runs out of energy and resources doing work that you’re passionate about, I found a hack to get over the feeling and move forward. The idea is to acknowledge what you’re feeling, feel it, then go back doing what you need to be doing to move forward.

(This hack works for most things, actually. For example, you need to exercise? Go ahead and feel lazy, then go walk. Don’t want to do laundry? Go ahead and feel unhappy about it, then go start a load of wash.)

Mind the Gap

Gap.jpg


When I write (or speak) for my audience, I rarely use words like incompetence, mediocrity, outstanding, or excellence. It’s not because I don’t think they’ll understand what I’m saying, but, rather, it’s because I don’t use those words when I think (or explain stuff).

But, when you put all those words together — and in the right sequence — it helps create the picture of possible gaps. So, here it goes:

It takes far more energy to go from incompetence to mediocrity than it does to go from outstanding to excellence.

Lose Interest in This

Worry.jpg


If there’s one thing I could wish for you, it would be that you lose interest in worrying. In other words, stop fearing what you need to do.

The reason is because when you live in fear — in worry — you’re creating your reality based on those thoughts. So, you’re attracting those thoughts you’re giving your attention to.

If that sounds jumbled up, let me say it this way: Focus on action-based Love. This emotion (and vibration) will bring you trust, gratitude, and joy — in all that you do.

Goal Importance

Listening.jpg


When you set a goal and realize its value and importance, you’ll find yourself noticing opportunities to help you achieve that goal. Sometimes, you’ll find an opportunity you never knew was there. But, as I’ve stated before many times — and, in many different ways — you’ve got to believe it’s there to experience it.

The Whole 'Other' Thing

Travel is odd. If you travel much you know exactly what I mean. It's unpredictable. It can be tense. And, every landing feels euphoric. But, there's a whole 'other' thing about traveling that you don't see.

Here's a great example. It's 1:00 a.m. The hotel clerk puts me in a room close to my 'event' room so that in the morning I won't have to walk far (there's acres and acres of property).

Here's another great example. The server at the hotel dining room has a table of 16 waiting to order, but comes over to me, leans down and whispers, "Give me your order so you don't wait."

I have become aware of the whole 'other' thing and how unknown people have such an impact on one's life. I've got to admit, though, there's been more than once that it totally freaked me out.

I think a big contributor to this phenomena is how we treat others. In other words, what we give out. When an unknown person feels respected by you, regardless of what they do, where they work, or how much money they make, they will attempt to live up to your expectations (as best they can).

See the photo above? That's one of my favorite servers, at my favorite eatery, at my favorite airport, who could be considered an unknown person. I'm always excited to grab an open seat, eat while I wait for my next flight, and watch her tear it up. (This is the look she gives her staff when they mess with her. She's the manager.)

Even though I don't really know her, she somehow always make my travel better. And when I finally board the last leg of my flight home at midnight, I take the good vibe I got from her with me. A wonderful unknown person.

Go Here

Tranquility.jpg

I see lots of people on social media listing everything they’ve done in 2018, and everything they’re going to do in 2019. They say they’re revved up and ready to roll.

I’m hoping today’s image gets thrown in the mix. Because remember, it’s impossible to keep life balanced, but, what you can do is avoid extremes.

So, in 2019, don’t forget to …GO HERE.
