Your standard of living has very little to do with how much money YOU make or how many possessions YOU own…I think it has everything to do with the way YOU choose to live your life in each moment.
Your standard of living is not decided by where YOU came from…It is determined by where YOU choose to go.
YOU don’t need anyone’s permission or assistance to raise your standard of living…YOU simply must decide to make the very best of who YOU are and what YOU have.
Do YOU wish to live a Kick-Ass life that’s overflowing with Happiness and Fulfillment?…YOU can most certainly do that, right here and now, by choosing your Attitude, your Perceptions, your Thoughts and your Actions.
Raise your standard of living in every moment by doing something to make your world a more Awesome place…Achieve the very highest standard of living by faithfully following the purpose that lives at your core.
There is always something YOU can do to improve the quality of your life…Continually seize those opportunities for improvement, and enjoy a rich, rewarding standard of living all the time.
As YOU begin your day, remember YOU are always YOU…No matter what kind of car YOU drive or what size house YOU live in. YOU are always YOU, no matter what color your hair is, or how much YOU weigh…Inside, it is always YOU!
YOU are not your job…YOU are not the clothes YOU wear…YOU are not the body in which YOU live…YOU are more. YOU are YOU. There is no one else like YOU anywhere…YOU are unique…YOU have a special contribution to make, not in the distant future, but right now, today.
There is something YOU can do right this moment, for which YOU are absolutely the most qualified, the most appropriate, the best suited person to do it…YOU are better at being YOU than anyone else in this world…It is your responsibility, so make sure YOU never allow anyone stop YOU from being YOU.
YOU are YOU…Make the most of that and YOU will understand how very special it is.
Think about it, wouldn’t it be great to have a whole day without worries? Just imagine how Creative, Productive and Effective YOU could be if only YOU were not plagued with constant, annoying worries.
The fact is…YOU can have a day without worries every day. Worry is not a foregone conclusion, it is simply one of many ways in which YOU can choose to respond to your circumstances.
The thing about worry is, it exacts a heavy price but it doesn’t accomplish anything…And it is completely unnecessary.
Certainly there are things that will make you concerned…Certainly YOU must be adequately prepared for the reality of your situation. Yet there is never any use in worrying. When YOU catch yourself starting to worry…STOP! Quickly switch your energy to something else. Make plans, consider the possibilities, take action, and leave your worries behind. It will make an enormous positive difference.
Do YOU have trouble making decisions? Is it difficult to juggle your priorities? Do YOU find it hard to say “no” , even when YOU really want to? Do YOU sometimes sit and wonder what YOU should do next?
Perhaps YOU need to clarify your sense of Direction. We all have a general idea of where we want to go, though very few people take the time to really think in specifics. But if YOU don’t know exactly where YOU want to go, YOU tend to stray off track. Distractions come along and pull YOU in a lot of different directions. Decisions become difficult to make when YOU don’t have a clear Direction.
Knowing exactly where YOU are going can focus your efforts like nothing else. Do you ever find at the end of the day that YOU haven’t accomplished very much? A clear sense of Direction can change that.
When YOU know exactly where YOU are going, exactly what YOU want to do, YOU can use that Direction to evaluate everything YOU do. Ask yourself, “Is what I am doing right now getting me any closer to where I want to be?” If not, then why are YOU doing it? If not, YOU better stop that and start doing something that will get YOU in the right Direction.
A ship sailing across the ocean is off course 90% of the time. But because the navigator knows the final destination, he can make all the necessary course corrections along the way, before the ship gets too far off course. Those mid-course corrections are vital. And they are impossible without a specific destination.
The same holds true for any endeavor. Everything requires adjustments and corrections along the way. But in order to make the right adjustments, the final destination must be precisely defined. Only then can YOU keep yourself on track for success.
