Blah Blah Blog... Okay how can a person lift their spirits and get instant gratification? This actually came up in a coaching call this week. This is so easy it about made my head spin.. sort of like Linda Blair... only without the green pea soup. Have you ever given someone a complement or told someone that you love them? Watch their eyes light up? Now... if you are someone who gives complements you know what I'm talking about. However, if you are someone who can't find anything nice to say and you never give complements... this is a much deeper conversation and maybe we should talk. So the instant gratification comes when the compliment is given, the smile happens, that thank you is spoken, and you know you just made someone feel good. :) In turn... you feel good too! What more could you ask for? Try it and enjoy!
Blah blah blah... People always say that. You should be grateful and at that very moment, when life seems to be taking a turn for the worse, most of us struggle to think of something to be grateful for. We can think of them easily when we are feeling great but struggle when feeling bad. But, what if you had a grateful thought in your "pocket" for example. And, what I mean by "pocket" is that you already have something preselected that you know no matter how bad things are "it" always puts a smile on your face. Be prepared so when the moment comes and you feel like all hope is lost... there it is... it could be a photo on your phone, or remembering a great vacation, thinking of someone you love dearly... it could be anything. What's in your "Gratitude Pocket?"
Talk about blah, blah, blah... how many people do you talk to in a day that mention the lack of money in their lives, not including yourself. There is an epidemic! So if we are talking about the lack of money all day long... and don't get me wrong I am guilty as well... then what do we get? Exactly! The lack of money. I am changing my talk today... money, money, money is flowing to me from all different direction. What can you say different today about money? Do you love it, I sure do because it gives me choices and I really love that. Choices about freedom and waking up with a smile on my face. So wipe away your preconceived beliefs about money and admit to yourself that you love it and you want more...
My blah, blah, blah blog is a one minute blog. I even tested it to see if a person could read it in one minute and get something out of it... the reading was easy but will someone really get something out of it... that remains to be seen. My thought was to give one quick tip about something you may want to change in your life that you did not even know needed to be changed. Stimulate some thought about s particular subject and away you go. No long stories about it, or what you should and should not do. Just do it... as Nike says... just do it. Our culture today is to be completely overwhelmed... and since everyone else is, we are in good company and it is okay to feel okay about that. I think not!
We never know what to expect in life... sometimes the darkest moments become the brightest moments. Like you, I have had a life of ups and downs and at certain points in my life I wasn't sure if I could go get much further down.
