I hope you have a wonderful weekend. Have a sense of humor.  Whether you’re a professional football fan or not you may watch all or part of the Super Bowl.  You can enjoy the football or the commercials or both if your heart desires.  Although I don’t watch football, I like to watch because of the commercials.  I like all commercials that have cute dogs and Clydesdales in them. Enjoy!

I’ve been pondering this question: What is the greatest barrier to self-improvement?  I believe our greatest barrier is usually our self-talk. We can be our own greatest enemy!

We’ve all heard the phrase, “You are what you eat.” The same principle applies to your thoughts. You are what you think you are.

 As human beings, we have body, mind, and spirit. Our body needs nutrition and exercise so do our mind and spirit. Life is a balancing act.

Food for Thought from Helen Keller:
        When we do the best that we can, we never know what
        miracle is wrought in our life, or in the life of another.

  There is always reciprocal energy no matter what. Everything you do Effects everything you do.

The Power of Being Intentional

  Food for thought:
        Just as your car runs more smoothly and requires less energy to go faster
        and farther when the wheels are in perfect alignment, you perform better
        when your thoughts, feelings, emotions, goals, and values are in balance.
                                                                ----Brian Tracy

The concept is simple and natural. Living it, however, is ..............   It’s in part an answer for how do you get the most out of yourself, how do you get the internal life you want  By being on purpose. 

Nothing is created by a complex confused state of mind.  I’ve been most productive and have found personal happiness when my purpose is clear and my thoughts are on doing what’s next to make it happen. 
In part, a life is just an output of our actions.  It’s about putting all of our thoughts and capacities on the doing and creating of what you want.  The output is a life. Enjoy learning to lead by exploring your possibilities with being on-purpose.

Strong Roots

Nothing of any note happens without purpose and intention. Purpose and intention is the driving force behind everything we do. Your individual purpose is your choice. It doesn't have to be forever. It can be from day to day. 
It cannot be over emphasized that our energy goes where we focus our attention and awareness. Success starts with you and your mindset.

Ready for life

Do you ever find yourself feeling stuck in thought patterns that dampen your expectations? You know the kind I mean, where you start expecting the worst possible outcomes.  Have you ever thought or said: ‘I don’t think I can make this work, or I seriously doubt that I can pull this off.  Life has no guarantees. Be open to outcomes.

Attitude is everything. Your attitude determines most of what you experience each day. Yet, it is something that is easy to neglect. Choose to have a positive attitude.

Everyday is a new beginning and a new ending. Life is about the journey and not the arrival --Choose to embrace the next step in your life.

Sometimes it takes conscious effort to enjoy the journey. Embrace life.

You might be tempted to assume that it implies seeing the world through rose colored lenses by ignoring or glossing over the challenging and difficult aspects of life. 
For me it actually means approaching life's challenges with a positive outlook. It does not necessarily mean avoiding or ignoring things; instead, it involves making the most of situations.

A positive attitude helps you cope more easily with the daily affairs of life. Our brains are powerful and can cause us to imagine the best...or the worst. Thoughts and words are energy. Now think about the thoughts you have and the emotions that are tied to each thought.

Life is an ongoing process of creation. We are constantly experiencing life. We are constantly adding to who we are. Everyday you are growing into the best version of you.

Now it is just to remember we are enough.

A fresh start

Your world is changing. IF you try to recapture how it used to be, you will limit what it can be. Be open to  outcomes. Make this the best  year yet!
