    Reset and Begin Again in the Morning

    Even on the days when it feels like your world has come crashing down around you, remember this: we are gifted with a new morning to start afresh, to begin again. It is a sign of the cycles of life; the dark is always followed by the light of day, and so it is with your trials. Reset and begin again in the morning.

      Through setbacks, you become stronger.

      I know that this can feel tough to understand when you are going through tough times but understand that you never face anything that you cannot handle. It is as though the universe only provides just enough to stretch you, to cause you to live a little outside of your comfort zone.  You are powerful enough to overcome and you are getting stronger each and every day.

      Watch and see how in a week, a month, or a year, you will look back and wonder why you got so stressed.

      It is because you are stronger.

        Don’t forget what you are capable of achieving.

        Don’t forget you are powerful beyond measure!

        It may seem silly to think of yourself this way but how does it benefit you to belittle yourself? How does it benefit you to think less of yourself? It may keep you safe for a little while as you hide away from the stresses of daily life but where does that get you? Trapped and stuck in a life you do not even want.

        Instead, expect more, dream more, never wake up from your dreams and choose even in the bad times to hold on to the vision of what you are creating.

        There is more to your story yet.

        One small crack does not mean you are broken,

          Stop thinking that one mistake, or that one setback is a signal of the end.

          It is not!

          You are still standing – a little bit shaky, a little bit uncertain, but you are still standing.  That shows inner strength and it is something you can build on.

            There is always a route to triumph, whatever the setback you are facing.

            You have to refuse to give into despair and look for it.  Again, remember that whatever you are facing is within your power to deal with so stay on track, look for the light and keep moving forward.

              The people who make no mistakes are certainly not the ones that get to live a great life.

              No, they are the ones who do very little and make no impact whatsoever.  Do you want to live a legacy of a life? Then know that mistakes are part of the process.

                To add insult to injury, there is always someone sitting on the fence with an opinion about what you should do.

                Surround yourself with positive people and know that those who pull you down are not worth your time.

                  You always get a choice about your next step because it is not a product of what has happened to you, it is a product of the action you choose to take each and every day to become the person you have decided to become.

                  Are you clear on who that is?

                    You might think that you have reached the end of your journey, but then, as you choose to take that one extra step, you realize you are more powerful than you have given yourself credit for.

                    That one extra step can be the difference between getting what you want and staying stuck in the same old place. Go on, keep moving forward.

                    Stop Worrying So much about what you feel

                      And for those days when gentle empathy does not work, it is time for a little harsh reality. If you want to change lives, if you want to have an impact on the world, if you want more than you currently have, then there is no time to consider only what you feel like doing!  You have to step up your game, regardless of feelings.

                      Yes, you can!

                      One small crack does not mean you are broken, (3)

                        Remember this: it is consistent action that pays off in the end.

                        Most people spend their days looking out for the results and because the results are slow in coming, they think that what they are doing is ineffective, so they stop.

                        The ones who win are those who can see past today’s results to the coming harvest. They know that everything comes in its right time but you must keep doing the work you need to do today. In time, what you planted will flower.

                        Never, ever give up!

                        7 Powerful Questions To Find Out What You Want To Do With Your Life

                        7 Powerful Questions To Find Out What You Want To Do With Your Life

                        What do I want to do with my life? It’s a question all of us think about at one point or another.

                        For some, the answer comes easily. For others, it takes a lifetime to figure out.

                        It’s easy to just go through the motions and continue to do what’s comfortable and familiar. But for those of you who seek fulfillment, who want to do more, these questions will help you paint a clearer picture of what you want to do with your life.

                        1. What are the things I’m most passionate about?

                        The first step to living a more fulfilling life is to think about the things that you’re passionate about.

                        What do you love? What fulfills you? What “work” do you do that doesn’t feel like work? Maybe you enjoy writing, maybe you love working with animals or maybe you have a knack for photography.

                        The point is, figure out what you love doing, then do more of it.

                        2. What are my greatest accomplishments in life so far?

                        Think about your past experiences and the things in your life you’re most proud of.

                        How did those accomplishments make you feel? Pretty darn good, right? So why not try and emulate those experiences and feelings?

                        If you ran a marathon once and loved the feeling you had afterwards, start training for another one. If your child grew up to be a star athlete or musician because of your teachings, then be a coach or mentor for other kids.

                        Continue to do the things that have been most fulfilling for you.

                        3. If my life had absolutely no limits, what would I choose to have and what would I choose to do?

                        Here’s a cool exercise: Think about what you would do if you had no limits.

                        If you had all the money and time in the world, where would you go? What would you do? Who would you spend time with?

                        These answers can help you figure out what you want to do with your life. It doesn’t mean you need millions of dollars to be happy though.

                        What it does mean is answering these questions will help you set goals to reach certain milestones and create a path toward happiness and fulfillment. Which leads to our next question …

                        4. What are my goals in life?

                        Goals are a necessary component to set you up for a happy future. So answer these questions:

                        Once you figure out the answers to each of these, you’ll have a much better idea of what you should do with your life.

                        5. Whom do I admire most in the world?

                        Following the path of successful people can set you up for success.

                        Think about the people you respect and admire most. What are their best qualities? Why do you respect them? What can you learn from them?

                        You’re the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with.[1] So don’t waste your time with people who hold you back from achieving your dreams.

                        Spend more time with happy, successful, optimistic people and you’ll become one of them.

                        6. What do I not like to do?

                        An important part of figuring out what you want to do with your life is honestly assessing what you don’t want to do.

                        What are the things you despise? What bugs you the most about your current job?

                        Maybe you hate meetings even though you sit through 6 hours of them every day. If that’s the case, find a job where you can work more independently.

                        The point is, if you want something to change in your life, you need to take action. Which leads to our final question …

                        Advertising

                        7. How hard am I willing to work to get what I want?

                        Great accomplishments never come easy. If you want to do great things with your life, you’re going to have to make a great effort. That will probably mean putting in more hours the average person, getting outside your comfort zone and learning as much as you can to achieve as much as you can.

                        But here’s the cool part: it’s often the journey that is the most fulfilling part. It’s during these seemingly small, insignificant moments that you’ll often find that “aha” moments that helps you answer the question,

                        “What do I want to do with my life?”

                        So take the first step toward improving your life. You won’t regret it.
