Claim Your Dream. Go after it like your life depended on it. It does! If you want a successful relationship put in the time and effort necessary. If you want a new car begin saving for it. If you want a new career spend at least two hours a day or more pursuing one. Don’t listen to critics. Rise above doubt, keep the faith and move forward.
When I was raising my kids it took me nine and a half years to finish my bachelor’s degree part time. I immediately entered grad school for a degree in counseling psychology. Two years after graduation I began a private practice. What are you willing to do to get what you want?
Ask, ask, and ask. Ask for help. If one person says no ask another. There are 6 and 1/2 billion people in the world. Someone has what you want and is willing to help you get it.
Ask someone out on a date. Ask if someone wants to be your friend. I was reading an article one day on Random Meanderings that really touched my heart and soul.
I checked out the author’s bio and discovered she lived near me. I sent off an email and asked Julie if she wanted to meet for lunch. I told her I was looking for new friends. Her reply was “yes,” we have since met and had a great time. Next time we are going hiking and back to her home for lunch! Reach out and invite others into your life.
Commit to Being a More Loving Person. Do random acts of kindness anonymously. Share your knowledge with others. Help others get what they want. Put others first. Leave a large tip. People are struggling more than ever today. Commit to going out of your way to help someone in need. This is what life is all about.
Spend Time Alone I’m up at 5:00 most mornings which gives me a couple of hours to meditate, pray, journal and exercise.
If I miss a few days I can feel it in my attitude and mood. It’s impossible to be happy if you don’t find time for yourself. You can read blogs on balance and self help but if you don’t take action you won’t get anywhere.
Learn From Your Experiences When you are in conflict or struggling ask yourself “what am I suppose to learn from this?” Don’t waste time obsessing. There’s wisdom to glean from everything that happens in our lives.
When someone cuts in front of me in the grocery store I can look at them as “rude” or I can learn patience. What someone else does is about them. How I react is about me. It’s all about responsibility.
Show Yourself Some Love Learn to be gentle with yourself. Take good care of yourself. Forgive and accept yourself. Your children will learn how to do these things by following your example. You are unreplaceable and unrepeatable. You deserve the best in life.
Know You Are Capable of handling whatever life brings you. Thing of everything you have been through thus far. When in doubt dwell on your strong points. Relax. Learn to listen to and trust your intuition. In difficult situations do what you can and the best you can and let go of the outcome.
Be Adventurous Today eat something new, learn something new, see something new and do something you’ve never done before. Break out of your routine. Life is to be discovered and experienced. Life is what you make it. Make it interesting and fun.
Rise Above Fear Recognize when you are fearful and breathe deeply. Center yourself. Get in the present moment where you will always find safety. Just for today give up worry and fear.
Treasure Your Relationships Spend time with the people you love. Transcend everyday pettiness and egotistical behavior. Go the extra mile. Be committed. Express appreciation. You will be blessed with joy and abundance.
