Your Vibrational Balance Sheet – Day 214 of 365 Days to a Better You

It’s a nice thought and a worthy aspiration to be filled with light and love 365/24/7. In realty, unless you have attained a high state of enlightenment, you slip and fall. You release negative vibrations out into the world. It’s OK. It happens. You’re human.

Here’s a way to think about your vibrational contribution without beating yourself up each time you crash to Earth.

In business, there’s a financial statement known as a balance sheet. It’s purpose is to state a company’s assets and liabilities. If the company has more assets than liabilities, it’s solvent. If not, it’s in financial trouble and may go out of business.

The human collective has a vibrational balance sheet consisting of positive vibrations (assets) and negative vibrations (liabilities) that we are all putting out into the world all day every day.

To keep your personal vibrational balance sheet strong and contribute positively to the collective balance sheet, follow this simple rule of thumb.

For every negative you put out into the world, put at least two positives out there. This ensures a strong balance sheet that allows humanity to continue to thrive and evolve on this planet.

You are amazing, My friends. Thanks for stopping by. If today’s post inspired you, please share it with a friend.

Release Yesterday – Day 212 of 365 Days to a Better You

“Don’t let yesterday take up too much of today.”

~Will Rogers

You only get 24 hours each day. If you’re spending part of today still living or reliving yesterday, you’ll miss today’s opportunities. Do it for days, weeks, months, or years and life passes you by.

We humans are emotional magnets. We walk through life attracting and attaching to emotional states. Some serve us and some don’t. As a rule of thumb, those that keep us stuck in yesterday don’t serve us.

Yesterday often has a compelling tale to tell as to why you should invest more time in it. It gloms onto you, begging you to stay engaged. The problem is there’s nothing to be gained there. Today is the only day when you can take actions that help you, help others, and help the world.

Greek myth tells us of the sirens. These were dangerous creatures who lured sailors with their enchanting songs and beautiful voices. Those who followed the sound wound up shipwrecked on the rocks and destroyed.

Yesterday, if you get stuck there, is a siren. There’s nothing there for you but destruction. Your way is forward not back. Your future awaits and today is the only key that opens it.

Stay inspired, my friends! Remember, there’s almost no place you can look in your world today and not see a miracle in motion.

You Time – Day 211 of 365 Days to a Better You

Are you the hardest worker you know? Excellent! Are you always the one who makes sure everyone else’s needs are met? It’s a worthy aspiration. Do you have enough You Time?

Most of us were taught that putting ourselves first is selfish and something we should never do. I guess the message was that there’s something unholy about considering our needs and making sure they get met. Could that be why so many people feel so incomplete in our society?

Have you been on a plane and been exposed to the safety briefing? You probably only half listened as you picked your movie, read the in-flight magazine, or tried to find a comfortable sleeping position.

Have you ever noticed the instructions when they get to that part about the cabin losing pressure and the oxygen masks dropping from the ceiling? Secure your oxygen mask first before you helping others. It seems like common sense, right? I mean if you can’t breathe, you can really help someone else can you?

Yet because of that life-long conditioning about always putting other people first, you go through life pretending you can proverbially breathe while you’re helping everyone else secure their proverbial oxygen masks first. Meanwhile, your goals and dreams and well-being are set aside. Soon they’re starved of oxygen.

I’m not saying there’s anything wrong with putting other people first or being selfless sometimes. I am saying that you need to secure your mask first because you won’t be able to help others for long unless you do.

Feed yourself and you will have more energy to help others. Starve yourself and you will poison your ability to help others.

You’re all amazing! Let’s make this the best week of your year!

Use I AM Wisely – Day 210 of 365 Days to a Better You

You likely say the phrase I AM or it’s shortened version I’m 50-100 times a day. And if you count the times you think them, and that’s equally impactful, it’s several multiples of that number.

No two words are more powerful and there’s something else you should know. Subconsciously, every time you say them, you’re creating an equation where what you say next is equal to I AM.

This is why they are the most common and powerful opening to affirmations. What equations are you burning into you’re subconscious?

  • I am a failure.
  • I’m always late.
  • I am bad at tests.
  • I am a bad parent.
  • I am never going to…

You get the idea. More than likely it’s a mix of positive and negative, but you often use the negative I AMs to systematically best yourself down. Stop it! Get conscious about it. Catch yourself doing that and correct it.

One great way to use your I AMs to maximum positive effect is to consciously turn them into affirmations. Drown out the negative I AMs with a tsunami of positive ones.

Make the power of that subconscious self-equation machine work FOR you.

Love you all and I’ll talk to you again tomorrow.

There Are No Dumb Questions – Day 209 of 365 Days to a Better You

You’ve probably heard someone say, “There are no dumb questions,” when trying to get a class or a group of people to open up. Because of the situations where you’ve heard it (maybe a situation where you didn’t have a question), you might have allowed this important piece of advice to slide right by you.

Questioning is at the heart of a growing mind and an expanding soul. Yet, many in our culture fear looking weak if they admit they don’t have all the answers. Questioning is like opening the door and exposing your ignorance.

Some pretty smart people disagree.

  • Confucius said it like this, “The man who asks a question is a fool for a minute; the man who does not ask is a fool for life.”
  • Einstein added, “The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing.”
  • Socrates went a step further by saying, “The only true wisdom is knowing that you know nothing.”

Power hack: So, never fear asking questions. Those who don’t ask won’t know. Every question answered adds to your store knowledge. There’s no embarrassment in admitting you don’t know, asking for help, or seeking new truths.

Go through life like a great journalist. Always asking the hard questions of life, of others, and of yourself. You’ll be better for it, smarter for it, and way ahead of those people sitting in silence afraid to ask.

Thanks for spending another few minutes on the blog. You ARE awesome! If you enjoy what you read here, please tell a couple of friends.

Speak your truth unapologetically!

Trust Your Instincts – Day 208 of 365 Days to a Better You

Have you ever noticed how often your first instinct was right? Have had an impulse to take a certain course only to overthink it and choose something that didn’t work out as well? We’ve all done it and we’ve done it repeatedly.

Look nothing’s 100 percent, but our instinct – that first impulse when we’re faced with a choice – has it’s advantages over what comes next. It’s not limited or filtered or justified. In many ways, it’s more completely connected to who you really are and to your connection to the vast wisdom of the universe.

Beyond that impulse, shoulds and fears and various forms of conditioning start to mold and shape your decision until it’s barely recognizable as yours.

I’m not suggesting that you be anti-intellectual and refuse to think or consider all possibilities. Only that you recognize the value, the wisdom, and authenticity that first impulse emits and that you give it a fair chance to inform your choices.

Examples

Examples could go from the very simple to the very significant decisions in your life.

  • You wake up one morning and think, I should go to work a different way today. Quickly, your rational mind starts demanding answers as to why you should change. The way you usually goes works fine. Why mess with it? Is your intuition just trying to mix up or is sharing profoundly important information? The only way to know is to take it up on its suggestion.
  • You’ve got two job offers. All the data says take one job, but your intuition is loudly objecting that you should take the other. Which is right? Either could be right, but it’s fair to ask why your unfiltered, authentic self is suggesting you go against the data. Is something amazing waiting for you on the other side of that choice?

Ultimately, we choose a path. Hindsight is often the only gauge to see which was the better choice. Yet, I’ll bet you’ve regretted not following your instinct many more times than you have rejecting something you overthought.

Just sayin’.

Today’s video affirmation encourages you to follow your instincts.

Trust, young Skywalker, trust!
