The Magic of compound repetition

Recent reflection on the 24,000 blog posts written since 2009 has re-surfaced something obvious.

The Magic of compound repetition.

Life’s basics have a solid, irrefutable foundation.

It is this strong foundation that is key to mental vibrancy.

Each of life’s five big choices currently has roughly 5,000 published posts.

Every day we are given a new opportunity to begin with a fresh over-arching choice for how we will think about everything that crosses our path.

Every.

Single.

Day.

Mentally, how important is today?

In the photo above, while athletic performance determines what level you reach, your mental attitude and growth mindset must rise to the physical goal. Mind, body, spirit, work, and home are inextricably linked.

Mentally, how important is today?

From a personal vibrancy perspective, your attitude today has the power to propel you forward or hold you back.

Your call.

Every choice on which way you decide to think, everyday, is your call.

Every choice. Every day.

How cool is that?

Where is your mind taking you today?

Got tickets today? To where?

Where is your mind taking you today?

To Optimism County?

To the despair alley.

To a growth mindset?

To a dead end, status quo, closed mindset?

To problems and obstacles?

To challenges and opportunities?

To mental vibrancy?

Radical self-care

Mickey Mouse always looks like ’Day One’. Nice photo bomb too.

Never get bored with the basics.

Like brushing and flossing.

Like saying please and thank you.

Like being present, mindful, and motivated.

Like taking radical care of yourself.

Radical self-care revolves around life’s five big choices:

  1. mind – we think
  2. body – we move
  3. spirit – we feel
  4. work – we contribute
  5. home – we dwell

Over-focus on the same things we used to under-focus on or ignore.

They ain’t the same

Disney never gets old for our household.

A positive attitude helps us slay can’t vs won’t.

Can’t and won’t are not the same things.

There was a time in life when we thought they were the same.

But then we discovered they are simply two choices at opposites ends of a spectrum.

Let’s take a positive attitude.

Who’s the most positive person you know?

It’s a trick question.

The question asks “who you know”, not “in the world”.

Your answer should be yourself, you.

You are the most positive person you know.

If you agree with this, congrats.

If you disagree, why?

And can’t you or won’t you make the changes to get the answer you deserve?
