Monday Morning Wake Up Call:
Your Motivation, Inspiration, & Direction for the Week Ahead
I hope you had an awesome weekend! I am feeling especially blessed this holiday season and I hope you are as well. The economy is good, the housing market is steady or climbing in most parts of the country, and unemployment is down. Overall, the year seems to be ending on a positive note and that’s good for all of us. But what about you? How are you feeling as 2017 comes to an end and the new year is just around the corner? The incredible thing is that we get to CHOOSE. We can choose our focus. Choose to look for the good – or wallow in the not so good. We can count blessings or woes. I am reminded of a quote by Carlos Castaneda, “We either make ourselves miserable, or we make ourselves happy. The amount of work is the same.” The funny thing about it is that when we choose the good, the happy, and the positive – life feels a whole lot more at ease, and a whole lot less like work.
As you plan for the new year ahead, in business and in life – be sure to choose the directions that will align you with the things you really want from life such as abundance and joy. Hold tight to that focus and you’ll find achieving those things to be so much simpler. Happy December! I’m here if you need anything.
Something to Think About
Make the directional choice for your life and career starting now. Build that choice into your business marketing plan, your daily activity plan, and with the things you use to fuel your mindset as you move forward such as books, video, courses, etc. It’s a great time to be in our industry and the perfect time to remember that life is rigged in your favor!
Choose to be happy every day for a week. When negative influences show up, send them on their way with an affirmative “no”. You may need to remove some of the world’s toxic energy to do it such as turning off the news and tuning into something positive – but it will be a practice that you’ll soon discover will fill you with more energy and excitement about facing your day.
