How to Instantly Have a Better Day

Intentional action in the direction of your dream will change the way you think and change the way you feel. It will change everything and you will never be the same again. Make today a forward movement in the direction you want to go! It doesn't take a lot although what you give is up to you but it does take the discipline to be intentional and consistent.

Here's a powerful quote by James Allen (also found in Proverbs) that helps me (Cindy) check my mindset and what I'm thinking about.

"As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he." - James Allen

And prompts me to ask myself specific questions like these:

Is my thinking serving me well?

Is this taking me in a positive direction?

Is this what I want?

Am I allowing the Law of Diminishing Intent to creep in?  In case you are not familiar, the Law of Diminishing Intent says, the longer we delay doing something, the less likely we are to do it.

This is all about the creeps!  What are you allowing yourself to think about? ...

Identify the Destination and Love the Journey

Through the last few posts and the LinkedIn article that set the tone for them, we’ve looked at some of the most pressing issues that cause so many of us to lock onto a goal and lose nearly all focus on anything but that goal. In many cases, that can suck the joy out of just about everything else around us. While that’s (usually) not our intent, it happens just the same…

As I closed the last post, I promised to dig deeper into how we can each be more intentional about enjoying the unique journey we’re on. Not long after that, as I was driving to a meeting and listening to Psycho-Cybernetics on Audible at 3X speed, I noticed that even Maxwell Maltz saw this as a significant issue when he wrote the book more than 60 years ago! Since I was listening (really fast) rather than reading, I won’t even attempt to quote him directly… His point, though, was along the lines of having a clear goal to work toward then live in the steps we’re taking on a...

It’s a Choice We’ve All Got to Make!

Abraham Lincoln has been quoted as saying, “Folks are usually about as happy as they make their minds up to be.” While I’ve also seen him credited for saying things like “You can’t believe all the quotes you read on the internet,” I’ve actually heard that particular quote attributed to him often enough that I think he really did say it… Regardless of whether Honest Abe did or did not say that about being as happy as we make our minds up to be, it holds a lot of weight!

In the article I published on LinkedIn recently, Don’t Wait Until You Get There, I referenced how basically everyone I know could point to at least one crappy situation they’ve had to deal with since Covid took over the world. I won’t hash the whole thing out again here, but I will be building on what I shared there through this and the next several posts. 

Picture this: you’re in your mid 20s, just getting started on your own. You recently...
