Holidays

Holidays are fast approaching. Before they become all about gifts and travel, take a moment to realize what they really mean.

Spending time with your friends, family and living with gratitude. This time of the year can overwhelm everyone quickly. Before that happens, step back and say out loud everything you are thankful for!

This shouldn’t be a time of the year that you want to come and go quickly. Enjoy the time with your loved ones, because every year it goes a bit faster.

Live with gratitude and be thankful for all the love and support.

Make it the best day!

Listen

To your body

To your family and friends

To co-workers

To strangers

To nature

To new stories

To old stories

Don’t talk. Listen. Ask a question, then listen for the whole answer without interjecting. Hone this skill and just like having patience or gratitude you will be rewarded.

Make it the best day!

Foundation

We all start with a foundation. A base on which to build and become who we are. We also have foundations in our learning and in our health. These foundations help us get further in our career and improve our health and strength.

We must revisit our foundations to make sure they are stable. This can be with continuing education courses, reading the newest research, challenging our pre-existing ideas and evaluating to see if there should be a new route taken.

Our foundation started some time ago. However, it should always be revisited to see if it can be improved upon.

Life is about adaptation and challenging yourself to grow.

Make it the best day!

Re-ignite your fire

Has there beenĀ motivation lacking in your daily routine? Has your inner fire subsided?

Re-ignite that fire. Find your passion again. What is something you do every week that makes you excited? What makes you jump up and down and get giddy?

Sit down and think about this. What puts the smile on your face?

Find that and create around it. Re-ignite your fire in the area that you desire. Even if it only starts once per week, build on that. Make your life exciting again. Create the life you want to live and live it everyday to the fullest.

Make it the best day!

We can progress with new knowledge. Yelling and fighting will not progress anyones cause. No one likes to be told they are wrong.

Approach situations with a willingness to discuss. Be prepared to talk, not argue.

Always ask

Anything is possible if you ask. Have a question? Ask. Want to see if you can get the same promotional deal you had at the start of a service? Call and ask.

Never hurts to ask, and you usually come out on top!

Highs and lows

When we look at any chart or our lives we see ups and downs. Very rarely, if ever, are people or businesses on a straight trajectory up. Constant gains, always acquiring clients, never experiencing downtowns or hitting your numbers every month is hard to sustain over a two to five-year time frame.

How we deal with the lows, determines how quickly we get back to our even or back to our upward movement. Some lows are harder to come out than others. No matter how long the lull may be, it is important to start back up with a plan.

A plan that can start small and increase over the coming months. Make sure your short-term and intermediate goals are achievable, knowing that you would prefer a longer term, upward moving positive trend. That will be more beneficial over the sharp upturns, which ultimately lead to the same speed of down turns.

There are always highs and always low. Celebrate them all, but always have a plan when the lows come. It will make the journey back to positive that much more enjoyable.

Make it the best day!

The sun is up

If you’re reading this, you woke up…YES!!

Now it’s time to get to work. The sun is up and we have a checklist of things to accomplish, personally and professionally.

This may not be the ideal situation you wanted to be in at the beginningĀ of the week, or the beginning of the month. However, here we are.

Let’s lock it down and be the change we want to see in the world. Follow you passion. Make your voice heard in the most productive way possible. Encourage a movement to make progress. As a citizen of this great country we can make a difference. Social media makes it easier to mobilize and make headway in your cause.

Take our individual fires and create greatness for today, tomorrow and permanently moving forward.

Make it the best day!

Live with love

No matter what happens, we need to live with love and gratitude. The only way we can see change in the world is to treat everyone better.

If we are divided, then we can not move forward.

Treat everyone with respect, love and gratitude. That will go farther than hate, name calling and grandiose verbiage ever will.

Live with love.

Make it the best day!
