A Quote I'm Thinking About

journaling prompt quote Jun 25, 2019
“Fail early and get it all over with. If you learn to deal with failure… you can have a worthwhile career. You learn to breathe again when you embrace failure as a part of life, not as the determining moment of life.

— Rev. William L. Swig”

Wisdom right?

What Are You Tolerating? Part 2

Now that you've had time to take stock of what you are tolerating I find it helpful to to think through what I want to do about it.  Really there are only four things you can do.

  1. Do/Fix It -- Don't keep waiting for a 'perfect' time just take care of ‘it’ now.  
  2. Delegate It -- Perhaps ‘it’ is not the best use of your time.  Can someone else take this off your plate?  For me this is the hardest.  Somehow I stubbornly think I can do it all when some of the things I'm tolerating can be removed if I'd simply delegate and give myself grace in the process.
  3. Dump It -- Sometimes it's best to accept ‘it’, let it go, and move on.  
  4. Dedicate Time to Eliminating It -- If 'it' can be eliminated do you want create a new ritual or habit to change it?  That decision makes all the difference.  

Look at the list of what you are tolerating and highlight the things that you...

What Are You Tolerating?

What exists in your life right now that isn’t quite the way you’d like it to be?   You know... those little things you put up with that you’ve been meaning to fix, but haven’t? Those things that you keep swearing you will to get to. . .   

Maybe it’s the clutter piled up in your office, bedroom or your car.  Maybe it's something in your home you've been meaning to fix.  Or maybe it is something bigger – like a home that doesn’t meet your needs for the season you are entering or a car payment that's too high for your budget.   

The things in our lives that are out of alignment are more than just annoyances.  They actually drain energy and distract us from crafting our best life.  

Why don't you grab a cup of tea and start to write down things you are tolerating.  Take a sheet of paper or open a word doc and begin to make a brain dump.  I've listed various categories...

Don't Fall Into This Trap

journaling prompt quote Jul 21, 2018
“Every single day on which you don’t start, you are ingraining the habit of passivity more deeply into your mind and body."  — unknown

I read the above quote a couple of times today and thought I'd share it with you. If you let passivity rule, you are doing nothing. Nothing to further your goals. Nothing to take control over your life. Nothing to turn your dreams into reality.

In short, you are letting things happen to you.  Instead of going out there and doing things.

I'm reminded of a Leonardo Da Vinci quote I like: “It had long since come to my attention that people of accomplishment rarely sat back and let things happen to them. They went out and happened to things”

When you don’t start today, you probably won’t start tomorrow, either. Your future self is probably not going to be all that different from your current self — unless you start making the necessary changes today.

“What is the single step that I...

Simple and Profound

journaling prompt May 08, 2018

I just finished reading this:

“In life and business, the person with fewest blind spots wins. 
— Thomas Oppong”

Simple and profound. Something I want to ponder... what blind spots do I currently have that are getting in the way of my goals?

That's what I'm thinking about tonight.

You Choose What Defines You

journaling prompt Feb 02, 2018
Nobody sees your past except you. 
To you, mistakes feel ever present. 
BUT, nobody knows them. 
These things are not branded on your skin. 
They are only with you if you choose to carry them. 
Hardships aren’t meant to be secrets — they have made you who you are. . .
. . . they simply don’t define you!”

I read this a while back and wrote it down in my journal. I saw it today and realized how good it was and wanted to share it with you in case this was a message you needed to hear today. Unfortunately, I am not sure of the source.

Make today amazing!
