You can

 

Do you believe that?  You can!  You will!

 

The power of positivity can transform a life.  The words we use – I can – I will – I am – are words of power.

Start your day with an action – “I will”, or “I can” or a belief “I am”.   Those are words that you own that can not be taken away from you.   I own my destination – I own this minute.  

I can make a difference.  You can!

I am and I will.

You might be missing one thing – a plan!   How will I do what I need to do?

What steps do you need to take to make it happen?

Here is a simple rule to apply to that plan.  Make it a SMART plan.

Make it Specific.

Make it Measureable.

Make it Actionable.

Make it Realistic.

Make it Timely.

That is right make a specific plan – focus.

Make it measurable – how are you going to know you are done?

Make it actionable – the plan has to be something doable.

Make it realistic – do something that is going to matter, has value, and meaning.

Make it timely – start today, and have a date to complete the plan.

Yes, you can!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

nourishment

“No one can give a definition of the soul. But we know what it feels like. The soul is the sense of something higher than ourselves, something that stirs in us thoughts, hopes, and aspirations which go out to the world of goodness, truth and beauty. The soul is a burning desire to breathe in this world of light and never to lose it – to remain children of light.”
Albert Schweitzer from Reverence of Life

“If you want the trees to grow it won’t help to water the leaves.” Thich Nhat Hanh

 

If you want your soul to grow what must you do?

For trees you must water the roots. For people we must nourish the soul. What nourishes your soul?

Sometimes and perhaps often we know what we need to do but for some reason or another can’t seem to do what it is that we need to do. For some reason there is no motivation to engage with life and it may take an external source of energy to begin to set things into motion.

What can you do to nourish your soul?

The time to start is now. This very moment is the only time that you have control of.
