How to have the best year ever.... Jim Rohn

I welcome all experiences! I never know which experience will turn something on.

I'm aware that to build a wall to keep out disappointment will also keep out happiness.

Look at my PHILOSOPHY + ATTITUDE + ACTIVITY = MY RESULTS.

Ask of myself to MAKE MEASURABLE PROGRESS in REASONABLE TIME.

Not that I am wrong - I have messed up!
I can go anywhere from here.
I have bought the wrong program; gotten the wrong results.
Get another program. Try something else.

"Truth will set me free" to amend my progress.
Awareness precedes progress.

Day that turned my life around -
Disgust - enough is enough;
Decision - inspiration, I will do what it takes;
Desire - I want this so bad I can taste it, it is happening;
Resolve - I promise myself I keep going UNTIL it is done.
These are the catalysts for change.

ASK:
WHY
do the work; put in the effort? Look for and activate MY drivers.
WHY NOT
see what I can do; what I can see; heights I can reach?
WHY NOT ME
with self-compassion, unconditional self-acceptance; setting goals; going forward?
WHY NOT NOW
get it together; it's a great time to start this process; to really get with it and go forward?

Get my cycle moving in an upwards, positive motion, amending what is possible and celebrating what is available.

6 days practice, persistence and patience - 1 day of rest.
Rest too long and the weeds start to take the garden.
Ask myself "What am I avoiding?"
"What do I want?" - MY evolving vision or goal.
"What is a next step that I could choose to take?"
I REPEAT THIS WHOLE PROCESS, WITH FEELING, OFTEN!"
 
Goals and achievement take time - having a goal or vision is like steam in a steam engine;
avoidance is letting it stay as water, for the moment....
I MAKE STEAM, WITH FUN!
 

No Better - No Worse

"My Mother taught me something when a teacher was putting me in the back of the class and ignoring me. My Mother said

'You are no better than anyone else.
But no-one else is better than you.
You are as good as anyone else.'

That lesson stuck with me all my life and it is how I have lived my life."
