When fear wins, I lose. I am doubling down on love.
I have a vision for my life and I stick to it.

Three Thoughts Before You Go to Sleep

No matter what you’re threatened with or how much you’re laughed at, never stop beating these drums.

A river has hope because it never stops moving forward.

Question to ask ourselves everyday: Am I helping to move the world forward or participating in its dysfunction?

Hope you had an amazing day. Remember, wherever you are on your journey, you’re awesome!

Skepticism and “Magical Thinking”

You know, skepticism can become a religion too. Doubt can become a comforting drug. When they become your default setting they limit your life in every way from the start.

Some seriously believe that expanding your thinking beyond what can be seen and measured is “magical thinking.”

Yeah. It is. It’s the kind of magic that opens new possibilities in a life and kicks down new doors for a civilization.

A skeptic feels at home in things that can be proven. That’s a comfortable place to live when virtually every proven was once a radical idea, disavowed as magical thinking by the skeptics of its day. Thankfully, it was believed in by one or a few crazy people with enough creativity and ingenuity to see beyond what was proven in that moment and enough courage dare the status quo.

Skepticism has a place in our thinking, but as a life philosophy it’s an uncreative, unmitigated failed mindset. It’s constant fear is being wrong or being tricked by nefarious data. So what? I’ll take being wrong 10 times as the cost of achieving one BIG dream or one betterment for human civilization.

I’ll take a magical thinker seven days a week and twice on Sunday. As for me, I aspire to be a better one.

Wherever you are on journey today, you are awesome..,even magically so.

Let Your Affirmations Be More Than Just Words

Affirmations are a powerful tool for putting your mind on your side. However, if they’re used without passion, purpose, or repetition, they can just become powerless, meaningless words.

In fact, done right, they are powerful oaths to yourself and the universe that clearly set your intention, put energy behind your actions, and put the power of belief to work for you.

Here are six tips to make sure your affirmations stay sharp and empowering.

  • Use words that have meaning and power to you.
  • Always use the present tense when creating affirmations.
  • Focus on three to five affirmation topics at a time. More affirmations are fine when you’re listening to them and they supportive same goals.
  • Affirmations are working when your affirmations come into your mind as an answer to the limiting thoughts you’re trying to replace.
  • Use affirmations you’re bought into. Try incremental and aspirational affirmations as appropriate to your belief level.
  • Change affirmations if they become stale or stop resonating with you.

Follow these simple guidelines and affirmations can become a workhorse in your personal development, recovery, or big dreams.

Wherever you are on your journey today, remember you are awesome!
