    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!

                        When You Start to Enjoy Being Single, These 12 Things Will Happen

                        Being single can make you weary, especially if you didn't initiate a breakup, it could be easy to get carried away with reminiscing and what-if scenarios. Staying caught up in the past is toxic to your growth, however, and interferes with your ability to move forward. Single life can be self-actualizing and enjoyable, but you need to embrace it first. No matter where you are on your journey in coming to terms with being single, the following 12 fantastic things will happen when you accept it.

                        Video Summary

                        1. You will be more focused.

                          Once you start to treasure your new-found freedom, you will realize that taking time for yourself will show you what is most important in your life. Enjoying your single time will make what you want clearer and reveal which areas of your life you should build upon. Additionally, studies show that experiencing something alone results in our brain forming a more clear and longer lasting memory.

                          2. You will be more active.

                            Studies show that unmarried people are also more fit than their hitched counterparts. Let yourself welcome being single, and use this time to your benefit. You'll be more confident and in control when you do meet someone special.

                            3. You will be more likely to have high goals.

                              Being single means you can't settle. In case someone who captures your heart comes along, you need to be at the top of your game. By embracing your time being single, you will be more able to pursue your goals and work towards a more complete, fulfilling future.

                              4. You will be more creative.

                                Spending time alone is also linked to an increase in creative thinking. Spending more time alone will force you to be a deeper thinker, and could lead you to solutions and projects you wouldn't have thought of otherwise.

                                5. Your schedule will be your own.

                                Advertising

                                  Once you get past feeling lonely and realize how wonderful being single is, you will become aware of one of the best perks – your schedule is now completely your own. No longer do you need to have nights out approved, nor will long days at work get interrupted. Relax into loving your single life because nothing is quite as liberating as deciding every moment of your weekly schedule.

                                  6. You will likely save money.

                                    Dating is a great way to wave goodbye to all your hard earned cash. When you're with someone, there's nothing more important than impressing them, including your income. However, when the relationship fizzles, you realize how this tactic doesn't pay off. Not only are we more prone to spending when dating, married couples are more likely to have credit card debt than unmarried singles. So don't get depressed when you're eating cheap meals alone – it's really a form of investing in your future!

                                    7. You won't need to compromise on entertainment.

                                      Particularly if your significant other tends to have different tastes than you, being single can be a blessing. As soon as you can appreciate being single, you will realize how freeing it is to always watch exactly what you want. There is no longer any need to skimp on your favorite movies, plays, or TV shows that others don't appreciate.

                                      8. You will have more time for your family.

                                        Another thing you will realize once you learn to relish being single is you now have much more time for family. Especially when it comes to older relatives, time spent with them truly is precious. Make the most of your single time by reconnecting with family members in your life you may have been neglecting.

                                        9. You have more time for your friends.

                                          Once you start basking in your single glory, you will also find that you have more time for your friends. Not only will increased free time let you reconnect with friends you may have neglected while being half of a couple, studies also show that married people have much weaker social lives than those who are unmarried.

                                          10. You will find new haunts in your city.

                                            Once you start to enjoy your single life again you will also find that you have plenty of time to rediscover your city. Where relationships see us fall into the same habit of favorite spots to drink, eat, or dance, when you're on your own you will naturally start to explore fresh venues again.

                                            11. You'll find more interests.

                                              Similarly, enjoying your time being single will give you more time to consider new hobbies and interests. Instead of repeating the same go-to dates, you can now freely explore activities that really make you passionate.

                                              12. You will be more aware of what you want.

                                                Ultimately, taking time to ourselves is an important ingredient in discovering what type of person is our ideal match, or what career we can happily commit to. By delighting in your uninhibited life, you are more able to experiment and thereby find out what works for you and what doesn't. Don't look at being single as a drawback, since learning more about yourself and finding out what makes you tick are crucial in forming balanced, healthy relationships in the future.
