As you move through life, don’t seek security but rather seek for adventure. It is far riskier not to invest than to be fully invested
Success is not doing extraordinary things, it is simply doing ordinary things extraordinarily well
Change will not come if we wait for some other person, or some other time. we are the ones we have been waiting for. We are the change we seek.
It is better to trust and be disappointed once in a while, than to distrust and be miserable all the time
When the final book is written on you, let it show your wins and let it show your losses. But do not let it show you didn’t play!
Good afternoon all you amazing people! Another beautiful day filled with endless possibilities
I wanted to share a powerful awakening I had overnight. Yesterday morning my gorgeous wife and I went spinning (love starting my day with exercise) and it was a great class. Around the fourth track the instructor said “we’re now going to do a speed session“. I turned to my love and said “blah, I don’t like the speed sessions 😦“
As I turned back to get going I felt a shift in my posture and energy and I thought “what the heck Pete? With one seemingly innocuous statement you’ve taken the joy out of yours and probably the other persons experience”
Why did this have such a big impact?
A number of years ago I went for an interview for a training role. The interview was a full day assessment and one of the activities involved doing a financial accumen test. Guess what I said in an off hand remark to one of the other interviewees? You guessed it –
“man, I don’t like these tests”
guess what? I didn’t get the role!
I’ve long since wondered what part that statement may have had in the outcome
and yesterdays repeat of statement brought the following home
1) My (our) thoughts are powerful beyond measure.
From within they shape my behaviours. If I am not awake to their nature and intent, I allow the wrong ones to mould (intended) my character
“In your hands will be placed the exact results of your thoughts; you will receive that which you earn, no more, no less. Whatever your present environment may be, you will fail, remain, or rise with your thoughts, your wisdom, desire, as great as your dominant aspiration.” ~ James Allen
2) My words are deadlier than a sword.
“The tongue has no bones, but is strong enough to break a heart. So be careful with your words.” -Unknown
Yowsers, sobbering reminders
Any activity or interaction that I have chosen to partake in (if im doing it – I, and I alone – have chosen this) I do so with positive intention and commitment to doing and giving my best, being in the moment with an open heart and open mind to the amazing opportunities and experiences which lie within.
Have an amazing day
