Honey, It's For You

Can you remain unhappy?

When you are counting your days, be grateful you have days to count. Each bead in the jar represents a week in life.

A mindset that immediately changes how you see life?

Can you remain unhappy when you are grateful?

Every problem is a challenge, an opportunity.

Creatively exploring and solving your opportunities unlocks more growth and joy in your life.

Growth mindset

Walking to gym yesterday. So easy to overlook on the brick wall. A tiny cocoon. Growth mindset is easy to overlook too.
Because i was delayed in returning home, texted a quick photo pictured here to let our son know where i was and why.

Can you explain the growth mindset to anyone?

Do you know how to apply it to your daily life?

Wonderful hour-long conversation with family member yesterday while walking back from the gym, which extended to a tranquil spot on our homeowner’s dock.

Pause and reflect…

That which is most important is hidden because of its simplicity and familiarity.

As my son and i discussed a situation the family member is having now, we can clearly see the best way for two anxious people to move forward – discuss things adult to adult, with an open mind, filled with curiosity, patience, and optimism.

In the phone call i had with the family member there is literally nothing but dread, anxiety, uncertainty, and fear. Apparently with both parties.

My son and i marvel at the paradox and quietly wonder as this is typed if there are personal blind spots that others can easily see.

Also can’t help but wonder if anyone would be kind enough to point them out and help me see them.

Comfort will ruin you

Email is on the way out. Gambling that text lists replace email lists.

What makes us comfortable is ruining us as we speak.

What makes us uncomfortable is the only thing that allows us to grow.

Like onions, there are layers to the first two statements.

Most of us are creatures of comfort.

We strive to make our living conditions comfortable. Nothing wrong with indoor plumbing and air-conditioning.

But what about our habits?

Avoiding risk, setting a low bar for achievement, believing balance is a myth, waiting to be picked.

Comfort provides stability, predictability, and well, comfort.

And it ruins us. Stagnates us. Destroys our growth.

Growth only occurs with discomfort.

Read that again, growth only occurs when we are out of our comfort zone.

You are welcome.

You will never

Make being out of your comfort zone your comfort zone.

You will never reach your potential, and discover your purpose, by staying in your comfort zone.

This Is Just For Me

Dreams, risk, failure, growth

Mid Life Celebration art 2008
Circa 2008. First business logo sketch. Originally, only four themes were created: mind, body, spirit, work. The colors; grey matter, brown as median skin color, red for blood, and green for USA dollars.

Dreams require risks. Risks require failure. Failure enables growth. Growth enables dreams.
