You teach others how to treat you. If others see that you are not a priority in your life, why would they treat you any different?


In order to be there effectively and efficiently for others, you must glitter yourself with some love each and every day…..A timeless lesson.

Glitter

Getting the right amount and quality of foods, rest, and physical activity throughout your day and week are not fads. Adequate rest, meal planning, and physical activity must be a lifestyle. Self-control, perseverance, and time management are not only for a particular portion of our life (job, artistry such as drawing, singing, parenthood, etc) or when a certain event will take place (trip to The Bahamas, or in my case, a trip to Las Vegas) or when you turn a certain age. Self-control, perseverance, and time management must be what we embody regardless of life circumstances. Who we are is reflected in what we say and do.

As a coach/mentor/nurse, if I am going to encourage self-awareness, self-control, perseverance, and time management, I must do my best to embody these behaviors.

We all fall short, at some point in our lives, in perfecting discipline and consistent behaviors, yet it is not about quitting; we must push forward.  It is not about blaming yourself or others; it is more about learning and developing better strategies to achieve our goals.

Let’s review some quotes from Napoleon Hill, one of the great authors during the Depression Era, who published Think & Grow Rich in 1937.

” Remember, too, that all who succeed in life get off to a bad start, and pass through many heartbreaking struggles before they arrive. The turning point in the lives of those who succeed usually comes at some moment of crisis, through which they are introduced to their “other selves.” Napoleon Hill, Think and Grow Rich.

“Before success comes in any man’s life, he is sure to meet with much temporary defeat, and perhaps, some failure. When defeat overtakes a man, the easiest and most logical thing to do is to quit. That is exactly what the majority of men do. More than five hundred of the most successful men this country ever known told the author their greatest success came just  one step beyond the point at which defeat had overtaken them.” 

We have different scenarios, yet, the same philosophy applies. Do not give up on yourself. Keep moving forward. 
Heal within.. within yourself,  within families, communities, states, countries and nations. There is enough to go around.

Set the stage. Own your life. Be present. We are phenomenally put together..breathing, moving form of creation.

Enthusiasm: Gratitude

Enthusiasm

Enthusiasm about life is what keeps me going in the mist of growing pains. I am so thankful for life and the opportunities to be the best that I can be.

I believe that we all have missions here on earth. We are here to serve each other, and it is easy to become distracted by all the drama. However, it takes great character, integrity, and moral/ethical strength to look past all the drama and see the similarities that we all have and not focus so much on the differences. Yes. we are all unique, and that is one out of a million plus things that makes life so interesting.

You never know how long you will be here on earth.

Relax and reflect

Relax

Do you take time to relax and reflect everyday?

I believe that it is important to have balance in your life. We should take time to relax and reflect on what we did that day, what worked, and what we can do better the next day. I believe that self-reflection should occur daily. You don’t have to drive yourself crazy with every bit of detail. Let what you need to give some thought come to you. If it is something that you need more time to consider, then write it down. Instead of purchasing journals, I purchase notebooks in August when school supplies are on sell.
Trust yourself.

The sooner you are able correct yourself and come up with a better plan for the next day, the better. The more you wait to do something, the more likely you will forget.

Thoughts and ideas tend to come much more easily when our brain….our body is relaxed.

Have you taken time to relax and reflect today?
