I Am Going to Succeed …

… because I can be more than I am … BECAUSE I believe in Me! (Say mantra daily and repeat as needed.)

Life has a habit of intruding into our plans. Have you noticed this? I certainly have. You find yourself derailed from the direction you were headed by some unanticipated occurrence. And in many cases it seems to be an ongoing scenario, those unanticipated interruptions.

So what to do? Simplify your daily task schedule, (as you can) create a little spare time to handle potential interruptions. A good portion of what throws us off base are the emotions experienced (stress) with an unexpected event. Allowing for the possibility of unexpected intrusions in your day gives you a more positive mindset for approaching and resolving unplanned situations.

Work on improving your personal organizational skills. Between work and family (both young and old) and the variety of responsibilities accompanying each area of involvement, the better organized you are, the better equipped you will be for tackling your tasks and completing them.

There are going to be hard days. I’ve discovered the best way to deal with them is to Think Positive and stay emotionally in control of yourself, don’t go to a ‘bad place’. Don’t allow negative thoughts to take over. Remind yourself you can get through this latest interruption. Regardless of what it is.

There are many excellent examples of average people who manage to continue on, in spite of overwhelming odds and adversity. What they all have in common … they never lose sight of their goal, they stay determined and they … Believe in Themselves!

Have a great week ahead, and as always … take care of you. If you aren’t well not only do you have a harder time accomplishing your goals, you can’t be there for those who need you!

With affection,

Who do you believe in?

I’m guessing that if I had to pick the person we most often doubt it would ourselves.Today is a wonderful day to begin believing in yourself. Starting Now! Here are a few quotes to lead the way.

“If you think you can, you can. And if you think you can’t, you’re right.” Mary Kay Ash

“Take the first step in faith. You don’t have to see the whole staircase. Just take the first step”  Martin Luther King Junior

“If you always put limit on everything you do, physical or anything else. It will spread into your work and into your life. There are no limits. There are only plateaus, and you must not stay there, you must go beyond them.”

One of the things I learned the hard way was that it doesn’t pay to get discouraged. Keeping busy and making optimism a way of life can restore your faith in yourself.
