Strength


How Strong are YOU?…It takes Strength to do what must be Done when the Work is Unpleasant and Uncomfortable…It takes Strength to Persist in the Face of Obstacles, when it would be Easier to simply Give Up.

It takes Strength to be Polite to Someone when that Person has been Rude to YOU….It takes Strength to Build for the Future…It takes Strength to Resist Temptations and Distractions.

It takes Strength to do what is Right…It takes Strength to make an Effort when it would be Easier to make up an Excuse.

It takes Strength to do all these Things…And all the while, these are the very Things that Build even more Strength.

Have the Strength of Character, do what YOU know is Right, put forth Effort when it is called for, Persist and the more YOU do so, the more easily YOU will be able to do so…Exercise your Strength and YOU will Grow Stronger, more Capable and Successful in each Endeavor.

 

 

Show Up!

Are YOU going to Show Up to your Work place today?…Most likely your Bones and Skin and Clothes will be there, but will YOU Show Up too? Will YOU bring your True and Awesome Self to your Work and all the Things YOU do?
 
If YOU are going to do it, if YOU are going to be there, Show Up with the Best YOU have…So many times we Defeat Ourselves before we even Start, because we Fail to Commit our Best to the Effort.
 
Anyone is Capable of Excellence…Anyone is Capable of Greatness…All that’s Required is to Show Up, to Truly Show Up and put the Whole of one’s being into the Effort…To go “All In” on Everything YOU Attempt…YOU are Filled with Value and Possibilities, with Passion, with Purpose…Whenever all that Awesomeness is Focused and Directed, the Result can be True Greatness.
 
Show Up with all YOU have…Go “All In” in Everything YOU do and Awesome Things will Happen.

 

Choose Discipline

Did YOU know that when YOU make the Effort to Discipline yourself, it is not Punishment…It is Power, It is Effectiveness, It is Freedom!
 
Self Discipline opens up a world of Choices and Opportunities which would not otherwise be available to YOU…At its most basic, Self Discipline is the Practice of taking Actions which are in your own Best Interest, of following the course YOU have set for yourself…That my Friends is certainly not Punishment. In fact, it is Extremely Rewarding.
 
It will require Effort to stay Disciplined…The world is overflowing with Distractions which continue to grow in number…In the space of each Moment, YOU must Refresh and Renew your Commitment to staying on Track…That’s why it is so Important that your Goals closely match your Desires.
 
Discipline will Produce Awesomeness in your Life..So point yourself in a Direction from which YOU cannot be Deterred, and the Awesomeness that comes from Discipline will be yours.

 

Take Control

As YOU all know, sometimes Bad Things happen to Good People…But it is Exactly when Things are at their Worst that YOU can make the Most Difference…When Everything is going against YOU, is the Best Time to take Positive Action that will get Things going in the Right Direction for YOU.
 
The Best Cure for Discouragement is Action…Don’t just sit there Feeling sorry for yourself, do Something!…YOU got into this Situation…YOU can get yourself out and move Forward to a Life of Success and Achievement…It all Starts when YOU begin to take Control of your own Destiny…Realize that your Actions Determine your Future.
 
Haven’t YOU had Enough already? Start Working your way out, right now…Some of Life’s Greatest Accomplishments come when Positive Action is taken in the midst of a Discouraging Situation.
 
What can YOU do Today, right now, that will Move YOU Forward?…Stop Feeling Sorry for yourself and take Control of your Life…Set your Sights on the Future and do it now.

 

Just Be YOU!

How often do YOU find yourself wasting your precious Time and Energy in a Futile attempt to live up to someone else’s standards? What are YOU trying to Prove? And why?…I like to believe true Fulfillment comes NOT from Impressing others, but from being, as Completely and Awesomely as YOU can, the Amazing person YOU are.
 
Consider how much of your Anxiety, Worry and Frustration comes from YOU striving to live up to the Expectations of others…To say the “right” things…Drive the “right” kind of car… Wear the “right” clothes…Of course we should be Respectful and Accepting of the people around us…We must also be careful not to become Enslaved by their Arbitrary definition of what has Value and what doesn’t.
 
My Friends, Break Free from the need to be Accepted…Set your own Standards, and set them High…Pursue Excellence with Sincerity…Forget about trying to Prove anything…Just go out there and be the Best YOU that YOU can be.

 

Persistence

Persistence is an Amazing thing, with enough Persistence even tiny drops of water can wear away the hardest stone…With Persistence a small seed can grow into a towering tree…With Persistence, anyone can make a YUGE difference.
 
With Persistence, one small effort builds on top of the one before, until the combined force is undeniable…Small, focused efforts, strung together over time with Persistence and Determination, bring about Awesome results.
 
So much Effort is wasted because it is spent against itself. In our impatience we run around in so many different directions, and end up covering very little ground…Only by Focused Persistence we can reliably and consistently make Progress, and utilize our efforts for all they’re worth.
 
Where do YOU want to go? Who do YOU want to be? What do YOU want to accomplish? What possibilities are waiting for YOU to fulfill?..Persist my friends, and YOU will.

 

Winner

Do YOU know what it takes to be a Winner?…A real Winner is someone who can accept defeat graciously. A real Winner does not plan to lose or aim to lose, and yet when the loss comes a real Winner does not waste time on Anger, Complaints or Blame.

A real Winner finds Value and Learning even in defeat, then goes on to Win a victory which outshines all the setbacks along the way…YOU can recognize a real Winner by the way he or she acts when things don’t go their way…YOU can spot a real Winner by their Positive, Winning Attitude even in the midst of defeat.

Even cowards can look strong when things are going in their favor…True Winners show their strength regardless of the circumstances…Those who are willing to accept defeat when it comes in spite of their best efforts, are the ones who ultimately can claim true Victory.

 

Add Value

Sometimes when YOU add a little Perspective to a problem, it can become a Challenge…Add a little Understanding to a Challenge and it becomes an Opportunity.
 
Add Energy, Effort and Commitment to an Opportunity and it becomes an Achievement…Put true Purpose into Achievement and it becomes Fulfillment.
 
Life is what it is, and yet it does not have to stay that way…YOU can add to it in your own Unique and Awesome ways.
 
Life’s Awesomeness is found not so much in what comes to YOU as in what YOU do with it…Choose to add to it, in beautiful, empowering, enriching ways, and make life’s richness even more so.

Effort

Effort..Even a little Effort, over time, can make a YUGE difference…We can make small improvements and in time those small improvements can add up to an enormous advantage!
 
So how can YOU live today just a little bit better than yesterday?…There are thousands of Awesome possibilities.
 
Too often we strive for sudden, dramatic changes, and almost as often we are disappointed when they are beyond our reach. Yet the little improvements, the ones no one notices, are the most reliable and consistent way to move forward.
 
Yes, it takes Discipline, but so what?…Discipline is nothing more than desire that has become smart and has learned what works.
 
Reach for the big dreams, to be sure…And do it by taking small steps forward at every opportunity. Today is one of those opportunities to take a small, yet significant step. Take it now while YOU can, and tomorrow YOU will indeed be thankful YOU did.

Fearless

Let’s talk about your Fears…Fear can be comforting because it seems so familiar. Yet, it is a false sense of comfort that will eventually bring YOU down.
 
Fear gives YOU permission to withdraw from life, to hide from life, and to avoid any kind of effort or action…But deep down, YOU know that’s not what YOU truly want.
 
Instead of seeking the comfort of the same old Fears, choose to allow yourself the joy of living. Instead of hiding away from life, remind yourself of the beautiful, unique, miraculous nature of your existence.
 
Regardless of what YOU have convinced yourself to believe, YOU do not have to live in Fear…The power of your fear is nothing more than the power YOU have given it…YOU can choose, right now, and always, to let it go.
 
Let the Fear go, and live your life with the Awesomeness that being Fearless brings!
