May 11 – Are you taking what you have for granted? Are you so focused on what you desire or want that you are not fully appreciating what you already have? Are you so determined in what you need others to be doing that you are taking for granted what they are already doing? Is your emphasis on becoming better or the best ignoring the very things or resources that could help you get there?
While dedication, focusing forward, and reaching higher is commendable, don’t allow them to blind you to what you currently have that has gotten you where you are right now and could potentially get you where you want to go in the future.
Take an MM&I Moment to reawaken to all that you have to be grateful for and that you feel blessed to have right now. Who has been a wonderful support to you in your life, your work, your business, your family, and your friendships? What resources do you now have at your disposal that you didn’t have a week ago, a month ago, a year ago, or a decade ago? What connections do you already have that you have not leveraged, explored, vetted, or validated for what they could do for you or someone else important to you? Chances are these few moments of reflection have helped you identify an amazing number of resources, options, and people who could continue to help you achieve even more. Your circle of influence is even greater than you realize when appreciation is ever-present.
