You’re mind is only as good as the…

You’re mind is only as good as the…

  • Thoughts you think
  • The books you read
  • The people you spend time with

Everyone is in sales

Chicken Egg balance on it's end
Rumor is you can only do this on Spring Equinox. It worked. Imagine if we could only trust ourselves once or twice a year. We often live like it.

 

In sales…

Trust is more important than how good you are.

In midlife, you need to sell yourself (to yourself) on your worth, your value, and your dreams.

Take steps to earn your own trust – so that what you hope for is worth burning the ships for.

On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.

Good morning mind blowing thought

The Lakeland Center
Five in the foreground, two in the center. Five blogs a day for the two most important people in my life.

 

That feeling when you wake up and realize you are one month away from something that blows your mind.

And you realize that what you began seven years prior has lasted.

And it lasted because, well, you have no idea why.

Except maybe because you had had enough negative self-talk and decided to burn the ships.

PS. No one is immune from negative self-talk, not even the most positive people you know.

Thank goodness these crazy people are arrogantly annoying

Disney Customer Service Speaker
A few days ago at the 2015 Sunshine State Games Track Meet.

 

It’s challenging to have an extraordinarily positive attitude because of two phenomenon:

  • It annoys the heck out of many (50%?) people
  • It has high probability of making you look arrogant

What most of us forget is that it is simply the price one pays to push through limits others say can’t be done.

Olympic gold medal contenders have to think and believe that they are better than everyone else in the world.

Arrogant?

Required?

Required.

Writer’s flood never ceases to amaze

Is it weird to feel guilty for having so many nice things happen to you?

Begging some questions:

  • Should we feel guilty?
  • Do we deserve it all?
  • Day after day?

And then some days goodness rains down on you. Is that fair?

PS. A day full of goodness is not without pain, temptation, sorrow, failure, just to clarify.
