Today Is the Day

Today Is the Day

Procrastination is one of the most common and deadliest of diseases and its toll on success and happiness is heavy.” – Wayne Gretzky

 

We’ve all done it.  We’ve all decided we’ll exercise tomorrow.  We’ll start eating better next week.  That project we’ve been meaning to get to can wait just a bit longer.  We delay, we postpone, we avoid doing something we need to do.  In other words, we procrastinate.

The problem is, procrastination often means never actually starting.

Procrastination stands between you and the things you need or want to accomplish, especially those goals that are difficult yet meaningful.  It robs you of your possibilities, your potential.  Procrastination stands between the person you are today and the person you could be tomorrow.

So, make today the day.  Start the journey to becoming the person you want to be . . . the person you were meant to be.

The Power of Passion

The Power of Passion

"Passion is energy. Feel the power that comes from focusing on what excites you."
 

Oprah Winfrey

 

Every great endeavor begins with passion.  Whether it’s personal or professional, passion is the motivational force behind the venture.  It is the energy behind the forward motion.

Without passion, life can become dull, stagnant.  There might be ambition, but no momentum to move towards the goal. 

Passion, however, not only provides the energy needed to move forward, it provides a sense of meaning and purpose to even the smallest of pursuits.  Passion breathes life into the stagnant and transforms the dull into something dazzling.

Are you harnessing the power of passion?

The Courage to Keep Swinging

The courage to "keep swinging" through the unknown, the painful, the overwhelming, or the frightening will determine whether you are able rise above and beyond these unforeseen circumstances-even growing stronger and wiser in the process-or be defeated by them. 

The curveballs of life are inevitable.  Do you have the courage to keep swinging?

The Fabric of Your Life

The Fabric of Your Life

"Possibility, Freedom, and Choice are woven into the fabric of our lives."

-Carl Hicks

Mindset is everything.

Individuals with a fixed mindset struggle with trying to envision a situation different from that which they are in.  Too often they accept their circumstances, rejecting the belief that they can learn, change, or grow.  In short, they settle for what they have and where they are.

Conversely, individuals with a growth mindset believe they can change their circumstances, learn different approaches, and grow to be what they were destined to be.

They initiate actions to change their circumstances. They embrace the possibilities they can visualize.  They recognize their freedom to change, and they make choices that are beneficial to them.

They don't settle for the status quo.

How about you?  Do you have a fixed mindset or a growth mindset?

What is woven into the fabric of your life?
