Go After Today Like a Puppy Would

Harper wishes you good morning and encourages you to go after it today like a puppy would.

Harper has reminded us of the eternal curiosity and exuberance that a puppy brings to life.

However many years we have on our tires, it’s good to remember that life is a gift. There’s always something new to learn. And, darn it, it’s supposed to be fun.

Have a day like Harper!

Just in case no one else has reminded you today, you are awesome!

Mindset is One of the Biggest Antidotes to Poverty

Some get upset by an idea like this. They say you’re blaming poor people for being poor. Not at all.

As human beings, we should always work to have greater compassion for everyone’s circumstances.

However, we cannot lie and tell people their thinking has nothing to do with their circumstances.

That’s how this universe works. We can remind them they are amazingly powerful, gifted, and capable of achieving their highest dreams.

Just in case no one else has reminded you today, you ARE awesome!

Radical Choice to Be Happy

The world will be what it will be today. We can either choose to own our own happiness, regardless of what comes. Or, we can leave our happiness up to the whims of events. The choice is always ours.

Just in case no one else has reminded you today, you ARE awesome!

Division is a Decision

Division is a decision not an inevitability. It occurs when people are conditioned day after day to focus on what separates us rather than what unshakably unites us.

If you focused only on what you disagreed on with your significant other, you’d have no relationship.

If you focused only on what you disagreed on with your boss, you’d have no job.

Is it any wonder that when we focus only on what we disagree on, we cannot have a country that works?

You may be tempted to point the finger at “them.” After all, that’s what our media and our so-called leaders do. They tell you to point and to blame and to focus on the separation.

We can do better than that and WE MUST.

We came here to aspire to something higher than the next argument or even the next election. We have forgotten who we truly are and as long as we remain in that state of forgetting, we’re easily manipulated. The moment we remember nothing will be able to stop the transformation.

Until that day comes for the world, we will have to discover that remembering one person at a time. When enough of us have changed what’s inside, the outside will follow.

Be who you came here to be. See your greatness and help those around you to see theirs too.

Whichever mindset you’re in on a particular day and whether you’re calling the day’s events challenges or opportunities, you can make progress by knowing the strength within you to advance.

Here are eight affirmations to help you along that continuum.

1. The challenges I face right now are the challenges I came here to face.

2. I face my challenges with courage and confidence.

3. I am strong and resilient in the face of my challenges.

4. My challenges are opportunities in disguise.

5. The opportunities I have right now are the opportunities I came here to seize.

6. I seize my opportunities with determination and urgency.

7. I make the most my opportunities.

8. My opportunities are the doorway to my next best self.

Have a fantastic afternoon. Refuse to let anyone step on your dreams.
