    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!

                        How to Motivate People Around You and Inspire Them

                        How to Motivate People Around You and Inspire Them

                        If I was a super hero I’d want my super power to be the ability to motivate everyone around me. Think of how many problems you could solve just by being able to motivate people towards their goals. You wouldn’t be frustrated by lazy co-workers. You wouldn’t be mad at your partner for wasting the weekend in front of the TV. Also, the more people around you are motivated toward their dreams, the more you can capitalize off their successes.

                        Being able to motivate people is key to your success at work, at home, and in the future because no one can achieve anything alone. We all need the help of others.

                        So, how to motivate people? Here are 7 ways to motivate others even you can do.

                        Advertising

                        1. Listen

                        Most people start out trying to motivate someone by giving them a lengthy speech, but this rarely works because motivation has to start inside others. The best way to motivate others is to start by listening to what they want to do. Find out what the person’s goals and dreams are. If it’s something you want to encourage, then continue through these steps.

                        2. Ask Open-Ended Questions

                        Open-ended questions are the best way to figure out what someone’s dreams are. If you can’t think of anything to ask, start with, “What have you always wanted to do?”

                        “Why do you want to do that?”

                        Advertising

                        “What makes you so excited about it?”

                        “How long has that been your dream?”

                        You need this information the help you with the following steps.

                        3. Encourage

                        This is the most important step, because starting a dream is scary. People are so scared they will fail or look stupid, many never try to reach their goals, so this is where you come in. You must encourage them. Say things like, “I think you will be great at that.” Better yet, say, “I think your skills in X will help you succeed.” For example if you have a friend who wants to own a pet store, say, “You are so great with animals, I think you will be excellent at running a pet store.”

                        4. Ask About What the First Step Will Be

                        After you’ve encouraged them, find how they will start. If they don’t know, you can make suggestions, but it’s better to let the person figure out the first step themselves so they can be committed to the process.

                        5. Dream

                        This is the most fun step, because you can dream about success. Say things like, “Wouldn’t it be cool if your business took off, and you didn’t have to work at that job you hate?” By allowing others to dream, you solidify the motivation in place and connect their dreams to a future reality.

                        6. Ask How You Can Help

                        Most of the time, others won’t need anything from you, but it’s always good to offer. Just letting the person know you’re there will help motivate them to start. And, who knows, maybe your skills can help.

                        7. Follow Up

                        Periodically, over the course of the next year, ask them how their goal is going. This way you can find out what progress has been made. You may need to do the seven steps again, or they may need motivation in another area of their life.

                        Final Thoughts

                        By following these seven steps, you’ll be able to encourage the people around you to achieve their dreams and goals. In return, you’ll be more passionate about getting to your goals, you’ll be surrounded by successful people, and others will want to help you reach your dreams …

                        Oh, and you’ll become a motivational super hero. Time to get a cape!
