Today is a new day!

Happy 2018!!! I was speaking with someone yesterday about the power of daily personal development and the power it has on getting our day started off the way we want it to. I felt prompted to begin my “thoughts for the day” again. It is a simple step…but it gives me some additional inspiration to make each day, each moment count.

What are you doing in December?

December is a great month to reflex, review, and set plans in place for the upcoming year.  I have always been a firm believer in setting goals and working each day to accomplish them.

December can be a great month to get your goals in place so that you are already running towards your goals in January

Meditation helps us live in the present moment

An additional thing I have noticed this week is that Meditation assists me in living in the present moment.  I find that I am not worrying as much about the future, but finding more opportunities to enjoy the present.

Does meditating allow us to quiet the storm in our minds?

After meditating this morning, I noticed that I felt calm and that my thoughts were more in tune with what I wanted to accomplish.  My thoughts also seemed more quiet and peaceful as well.   I am usually a pretty calm guy anyways…but this morning was different.

Could one of the benefits of meditating be being able to quiet the “storm” in our minds?

What can we learn from Meditation?

I had a conversation with my wife last night about the power of mediation.  She has been consistently meditating each day for a few weeks now and loves what it is doing for her.

I have taken time to meditate consistently in the past, but haven’t done it for a while.  So, in the spirit of improving and growing I am starting today to learn more about, explore, and be consistent in daily mediation.

Our ability to choose how we respond

I just had a great call with a leader who is going through some tough times, but is choosing to focus on controlling what she can and letting go of what she can’t.

The one thing NO ONE can ever take away from us is our ability to choose how we respond. It was a great reminder to me of the power that each of us have to decide HOW we are going to respond to the situations that life gives us.

Our conversation also reminded me of the 90/10 principle, and gave me added strength to focus on what I can control today. How could this assist you today?
