August 21 – Are you feeling it’s too late? Have you made yourself believe that it is now too late to pursue something you really wanted to be doing? Have you delayed in responding or following up on something, so now you believe the opportunity has been lost? Has someone instilled this way of thinking into you? Whatever is causing you to believe this, it’s time to shift your thinking. You have total control of your thoughts, and once you embrace this reality, you then have total control of your actions and reactions.
August 14 – Are you leveraging your past? Are you so focused on now and the future that you have forgotten what may have been the secret sauce that got you where you are right now? Are you so focused on what’s next that you are not looking back to see how you could potentially engage what you have done previously to super-charge what you want to do? Are you overlooking someone from your past who could be just the resource, connection or leverage you need to catapult your dreams into motion? Letting go of the past when it was negative or painful is important. However, don’t allow your desire to leave the past behind to blind you to how your experiences and the people you have known could be a silver lining of opportunity for you being able to move forward in reaffirming ways.
August 7 – How intentional are you? Do you find yourself saying that you will get to something you want to be doing later, when you have more time? Do you feel you must focus on certain things, even though you would really like to be putting your energy into something else? Do you have desires that you have convinced yourself must wait? All of these situations are choices you are making, plain and simple. However, you can choose a more empowering path, by giving yourself permission to take action towards what you want to ultimately be doing. It doesn’t take much to begin. It only takes you.
July 31 – Are you dipping your toe or diving in? As you go about your day, how are you embracing your dreams and desires? Are they top of mind? Are you making decisions for intentional progress? Are you taking some time to absorb and visualize yourself in the possibilities and then determining actions that can get you closer to where you want to be? If you are only imagining, yet not taking action, you are allowing your dreams to stay dreams. If you are listing things that can be done, yet not scheduling and doing them, you may be allowing fears or uncertainty to continue to put what you want most continually out of reach.
July 24 – Are your decisions momentum-building? Do you feel confident that the choices you are making are propelling you forward in where you want to be? Have you defined what is most important and meaningful for your future? Have you devised a strategy and action plan to get where you want to go? Every day we are faced with choices that need to be made in where we devote our focus and energy and how we spend our time, money and resources.
July 17, 2019 - Are you dreaming wide awake? Are you daydreaming or dream doing? Are there things you are waiting to do because you feel that you have no choice but to wait? Do you have a whole bucket list of wants and desires that are way off into the future for you? Why? What has made you believe that you must wait? Obligations? Responsibilities? Commitments? Are you living the life you want to live right now? If not, then now is the time to seize your life and make it all that you want it to be. You can. It is merely a matter of deciding, and then doing.
July 10, 2019 - Is now or what you want most winning? How well are you focusing on the things you want most in your life? How effective are you at saying “no” to what is not urgent or important in order to say “yes” to what is necessary and meaningful for you? Are you starting your day with your ultimate reward and desires in mind? Are you putting actions related to what you want most as priorities for each day? It is easy to get caught up in the demands of now to the point of distraction, especially when “they won’t take that much time.” However, when you continuously set aside what you want most to take care of everything else, your actions are saying you don’t want it as much as you think you do. If you want it, then there are no if, ands, or buts.
