One Question A Day?

Whom do you trust?

Mickey and Pluto
You should be your own best friend. Love yourself.

Whom do you trust?

Trick question.

Correct answer is, “Myself.”

Think about it and work diligently to make this your reality.

From six decades of personal experience, this is more challenging than it seems. 

Focus on it and your life transforms into balanced excellence and personal vibrancy.

Dear Son

Dear Son, passing the trust torch to you

Trust
The landscape contractor has a history of showing up as promised only 50% of the time. So no, i do not trust he’ll be here March 29 or 30. i hope so, but i cannot trust it.

 

Dear Son, passing the trust-torch to you.

Two nights ago when i said i trust you to self-monitor your nightly hour of video games – and that you will face temptation when parental oversight lessens…remember?

From the time you began to talk as a one-year-old we have prioritized trust as the number one relationship asset.

What hit me as a was falling asleep was this:

You must have a powerfully trusting relationship with yourself.

As you mature and approach 18, you will be in charge of your choices.

Choices, my Son, are everything.

Trust yourself to make great choices.

Trust yourself to learn from poor choices.

And remember that a poor choice can simply be to not make one because of fear, doubt, and uncertainty.

You must trust yourself more than anyone else in the world.

Note: Risks for personal growth are healthy. Risks for pleasure are unhealthy. Self-control follows trust and personal responsibility.

Seriously?

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.

Entrusted in midlife to spark the change we wish to see

Nicholson Center at Florida Hospital Celebration Health
Two days ago.

 

Nicholson Center at Florida Hospital Celebration Health
Yesterday.

 

Disney has taught me (for over 30 years) to over manage things that others either under manage or ignore.

This builds trust and trust is a differentiator anywhere there’s a crowd. We can see the same thing two days in a row and yet they appear different. But only if we are “present in the moment”.

Otherwise, we can go through our day and never notice the clouds.

Heading to the Nicholson Center in an hour. Have been entrusted to be a catalytic speaker for a long-time client.

Dear Son

What if there was less than a week left, then what?

Stephen Hawking quote about the Universe
Because there is a law such as love…

 

What if there was less than a week left (for something monumental), then what?

Dear Son, believe it or not, the past four days have been some of the most monumental days in our relationship.

How can so much happen in such a short time?

Why did it take so long or was it perfect timing?

Has this been the ultimate test of patience and payoff?
