Go With All Your Heart – Day 176 of 365 Days to a Better You

Few human masters are better remembered for their simple wisdom than Confucius. His intellect was one of the pillars of the ancient Chinese culture and even of the modern Chinese psyche.

One of my favorite pieces of Confucius advice is, “Wheresoever you go, go with all your heart.”

You’re here in this place and this time. You’ve already “bought the ticket.” So, take the ride. Why not go after what you want and who you can become with all you are? Why allow half-heartedness, uncertainty, or doubt stop you from reaching the top of your mountain?

You know the answer to these questions. Please don’t waste your time going over the plan one more time. Start climbing that mountain and the wisdom of how will greet you along the way!

You are all amazing! Thank you for reading this blog. I wish you all a wonderful night’s sleep and a brilliant beginning to your tomorrow.

Self-Confidence and Understanding – Day 173 of 365 Days to a Better You

Today’s Affirmation

I look everyone I encounter squarely in the eye with sincere respect for them and complete confidence in myself. I am firm in my conviction that I am up to any reasonable challenge. I have the courage and understanding to meet the world on an equal footing; looking down on no one nor standing in awe of anyone.

For everyone, beyond his or her position and burdens, is simply another human being doing the best possible given his or her current circumstances. Remembering this creates understanding within me and contributes to my peace of mind and success.

This affirmation speaks of courage, conviction, and the confidence to meet the world head on. When we allow our problems and challenges to take center stage in our lives it’s easy to fall into a cycle of diminishing self-confidence. We forget who we truly are and why we’re truly here. We forget our uniqueness and ignore our greatness.

Worse, those feelings and that forgetfulness have ripple effects in the world. We don’t give ourselves the benefit of the doubt and we are even less likely to grant it to the next person. Our thoughts become narrow and judgmental and we don’t take into account the circumstances under which the next person is operating.

The world can be a better place starting today, if only you will live with greater confidence. When you are confident your vision broadens and more possibilities open up. You see yourself and the world with balanced eyes that recognize your strengths as well as your opportunities for improvement.

ralph_waldo_emerson.jpgRalph Waldo Emerson is quoted as saying, “If I have lost confidence in myself, I have the universe against me.” Let’s keep the universe with us today.  Pledge to believe in yourself at least a little more than yesterday. Meet the world as an equal and it is forced to treat you as one.

You are amazing! Never doubt that for a moment! Thank you so much for reading the blog.

Say I Love 50 Times a Day – Day 170 of 365 Days to a Better You

Today’s Affirmation

The more love I express, the more love I feel.

No word has more impact than a word that follows I. Affirmations are built on I phrases. No word has more innate power to shift your mindset and your heart than love. I’m not speaking of an empty over-used version of the L word. I’m talking about a heartfelt expression of love for the people and things in the world around you.

Here’s my challenge to you. Tomorrow use the phrase I love… at least fifty times. Don’t say it just to say it. Really take a moment to notice all the people and things you love and call them out as you come across them.

Consciously say I love April. I love the summer sky. I love golf. I love my time in the traffic jam because I get to listen to my favorite music. Whatever those things are for you, notice them and say I LOVE to them in your mind or boldly out loud.

The more you fill your consciousness and your day with “I love…” the more gratitude you’ll experience and the better you’ll feel.

This practice is a keeper. Make it a habit to say “I love…” at least fifty times each day and watch the magic happen!

I love all of you and I’m deeply appreciative that you spend a few minutes of your day reading this blog and watching my videos. Thank you so much!

Daily Video Affirmation #6 – I AM Making Progress

Not all affirmations are inspirational or aspirational. Some are rather pedestrian reminders of practical things. The idea is to coat your consciousness with these thoughts to help make it your default thinking. Today’ affirmation is a good example of that.

Stay focused. Stay positive!
