Day One



 Consider today as your 'Day One'. Yesterday cannot be changed - Focus on today. You're alive, you're breathing, you've got unrealized dreams, goals and visions. Today is your chance to step closer towards your future.

 Start today with passion, with purpose and with intent. You have the power to change your future starting today. 
 

John C Maxwell, said "Most people don't lead their life, they accept their life." Let's be people who lead our own lives.

Today is my Day One - start fresh, start now!

Motivational junkie

There are those who get things done only when they feel inspired. Then there are the movers and shakers, people who are powerful because they get things done, whether they are inspired or not. Inspiration and motivation can feel quite nice in the moment, but it simply isn’t sustainable. And if you are relying on always having to be inspired and motivated to get things done, then you are in trouble.
“We should be taught not to wait for inspiration to start a thing. Action always generates inspiration. Inspiration seldom generates action.” — Frank Tibolt, Author
 I am blessed to have known some very powerful people in my life. Powerful not only in positions of authority and responsibility, but how they lived their lives. Taking care of their health. Ensuring they had time and energy for their families. Preparing a budget and actually living within it. Making time for spiritual reflection. And so on.
And none of them had a “need” for inspiration or motivation.
Inspiration and motivation can be a beautiful thing. Listening to a thoughtful sermon or rocking to some music can give a lift to our spirits. And when we’re feeling down, who doesn’t appreciate hearing a message that can seem tailor made for us right at that moment?
But all too often, we fall into the trap of “needing” to be inspired and motivated in order to get a move-on with whatever we need to place attention on. And when we are in that pattern of behavior, we become a “junkie,” needing our “fix” of inspiration and motivation.
The movers and shakers of this world base their actions on what they believe is the right thing to do, as opposed to what mood they are in. And they get things done. On the other hand, those who are inspiration and motivational “junkies” will sooner or later fall prey to the despairing spirit of inaction. If you find yourself needing that motivational “fix,” what are you going to do if there isn’t any around?
Yes, it is reasonable to enjoy those moments where we are touched by somebody’s story, or how their voice happens to resonate. We are creatures of emotion and the excitement and fervor that can sweep up a crowd can be contagious for any who are present. And it is a wonderful thing when our hearts are touched, exposing our humanity. Having things to ponder, even emulate can be a source of growth.
Just beware of becoming in “need” of that stuff. Beware of becoming a “motivational junkie.”

Breathe.

Post written by Leo Babauta.
Breathe.
Breathing can transform your life.
If you feel stressed out and overwhelmed, breathe. It will calm you and release the tensions.
If you are worried about something coming up, or caught up in something that already happened, breathe. It will bring you back to the present.
If you are discouraged and have forgotten your purpose in life, breathe. It will remind you about how precious life is, and that each breath in this life is a gift you need to appreciate. Make the most of this gift.
If you have too many tasks to do, or are scattered during your workday, breathe. It will help bring you into focus, to concentrate on the most important task you need to be focusing on right now.
If you are spending time with someone you love, breathe. It will allow you to be present with that person, rather than thinking about work or other things you need to do.
If you are exercising, breathe. It will help you enjoy the exercise, and therefore stick with it for longer.
If you are moving too fast, breathe. It will remind you to slow down, and enjoy life more.
So breathe. And enjoy each moment of this life. They’re too fleeting and few to waste.
Tip: Put the word “Breathe” as a screensaver or desktop pic, or put it up as a note on your wall or fridge or on your desk. Then do it every time you see the word.

4 STEPS TO CREATING THE ULTIMATE VISION FOR YOUR LIFE

4 STEPS TO CREATING THE ULTIMATE VISION FOR YOUR LIFE

The one trait that all successful, fulfilled people cultivate—be they great writers, teachers, artists, parents, politicians or athletes—is a passion and enthusiasm for life. We all need a compelling vision for our lives: one so powerful that we are driven to do whatever it takes to achieve it.

When we pursue something greater than the current moment, we find fulfillment and joy. The ultimate vision flows from knowing we have a special and unique purpose on this planet. So, how do you create this ultimate vision? Go to an environment that inspires you and where you won’t be interrupted (e.g. the beach, a park, an art museum), and take these steps:


Step 1: Write a paragraph or two answering following questions: What do you want to create for your life? If all of a sudden you had the energy again like you were a little kid and the journey had just begun, what would you be excited to tackle? What would get you up early and keep you up late at night? What would your life be about? What does that vision look like? If you had no fear about moving forward, what would you do in your life? What challenges might you be excited to overcome? What do you want to contribute to your own life and the lives of others? What do you want to give, create, be, feel or share?

“To create an extraordinary quality of life, you must create a vision that’s not only obtainable, but that is sustainable.”
— Anthony Robbins

Step 2: Make sure this vision is emotionally charged, with the power to move you to action: Your vision will provide a consistent focus, continually reminding you what it is you are committed to creating in your life, career or business.

Step 3: Add specifics: Your vision should provide some detail about what measurable results you are going to achieve in your life. This yardstick will help you assess where you are versus where you want to be.

Step 4: Don’t try to make your description perfect You aren’t writing for the Pulitzer Prize—you’re writing to create something that excites you! Try drawing or cutting out pictures that inspire you or that describe your vision. Or choose a song that becomes your theme song for your life. Get creative, as there is no right or wrong way to describe your ultimate vision.

Life is an opportunity




In everything in life, there is opportunity. Today, wherever you are, whatever will happened, there is great opportunity to add value, meaning and richness to life.


When you see grand examples of life’s beauty and wonder, there is opportunity. When you see tragedy, injustice, and dismay, there is opportunity to make a genuine and lasting positive difference in the world.


One of the most powerful aspects of life is the opportunity that exists in every situation. Life is good, and it gets even better when you seize the opportunities and bring them to fulfillment.


Focus your heart and your mind on what you can do to add more real goodness and beauty to the world. Wherever you are, you’ll always find a way to enrich all of life.


Life is an opportunity. Among all the things you see in front of you, commit yourself to bringing the value of that opportunity into being.


Within this day is great opportunity. Embrace it, follow it, and make it into something truly beautiful.
