Don't Point the Finger!

When things go wrong in your life, do you make life miserable by constantly dwelling on what happened?

Do you start pointing the finger, looking for someone to blame?

Maybe you blame yourself?

The thing about dwelling on past `mistakes' or looking for someone to take the blame is that it wastes time. The negative emotion stops you from moving on with an open and positive mind.

Well, do you know, blame doesn't solve anything. It doesn't change what has already past. It doesn't make life better.

Even if you blame yourself when life isn't going well, what's the point of beating yourself up? Is it going to provide a solution? Does it really make you feel better? No!

So, don't dwell on past `mistakes' - remember, there are no mistakes, only lessons and experiences! Don't lose yourself in the blame mentality. It really doesn't help!

Simply learn what's needed from the event, and MOVE ON!

Life's too short and there's a whole world out there waiting to be explored!

What you waiting for? Let go of what's past, stop pointing the finger. Go live your life. Have fun. Embrace what is now and the good times to come.

"All blame is a waste of time. No matter how much fault you find with another, and regardless of how much you blame him, it will not change you" - Wayne Dyer

One Step At a Time

If you're currently focused on a life-changing project but are overwhelmed by the enormity of what you're trying to achieve, take a moment to gain perspective.

Remember that every accomplishment is achieved step-by-step.

Every successful athlete will have done months of preparation to gain peak fitness.

Every successful entrepreneur will have built their business over months or years.

Every successful space launch is the result of careful development over a period of time.

The Great Pyramid of Egypt wasn't built in a day; it was a gradual process.

Whether it's brick-by-brick, or step-by-step, accept that some projects take time to come to fruition. This is especially true if you want to achieve something that stands on solid foundations.

Mark Twain offered some wise words on the subject:

"The secret of getting started is breaking your complex, overwhelming tasks into small manageable tasks, and then starting on the first one."

This is the way books are written, movies are made, and success is achieved.

When you break down your project into smaller doable chunks, it's easier to make a start and maintain momentum towards your ultimate goal.

So, take a fresh look at what you're trying to achieve and break the process down into manageable stages.

Make a start today and take one step at a time.

"Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. Begin it now.” - Johann Goethe

Embrace the Fun Factor!

Are you having fun doing what you're doing?

If not, why not?

Take a coffee break and think about this for a while.

You see, life's far too short for moping around, making do, putting up with a situation that makes you unhappy.

You should be having fun and enjoying your life!

Don't think it's possible? Well, think again!

You CAN create the opportunities.

You CAN live a more fulfilling and fun life.

What's more, you deserve it!

Of course, achieving the life you really want may sometimes feel like an uphill struggle. If, however, you're doing something that you're passionate about or enjoy, then you really can have FUN as you make changes and break out of those comfort zones.

The secret is that you can choose how you're going to live each day.

It's always your choice!

And, when you choose to have more fun, to face each day with laughter and joy, life becomes a whole lot brighter for you and those you meet on your path.

What's more, it's proven fact that people who enjoy life and are happy tend to be healthier and live longer. That's a win win!

So, how are you going to enjoy today? What are you going to do to make life more fun?

Choose wisely and have a fantastic day!

"People rarely succeed unless they have fun in what they are doing." - Dale Carnegie

Let It Go!

Is the past stealing your present and future?

Are you constantly churning yesterday's or yesteryear's events and thinking `if only'?

Unless the laws of physics suddenly change, we can't go back to alter the past. We can't retrieve those lost seconds, minutes, hours, days, months, and years.

So, here's today's self-development prompt:

Let the past go!

When you realize that what you do right now is what really makes the difference, then you can start moving on with your life.

You see, living is easy when you detach from the thoughts and feelings holding you back.

Getting on with your life is much easier when you accept that there are things you can't change.

Struggling to forget what happened in the past, what you've done, or what others have done to you?

Forgive where forgiveness is needed. Accept what's done is done. Let all those limiting thoughts go and commit to changing what you can change RIGHT NOW!

Time is ticking, folks!

And time is incredibly short.

Don't waste your precious moments dwelling on what's been and gone.

Let the past go, and focus on what you can do here and now!

Now's the time to create a new chapter in your life. Make it a good one! Make it truly brilliant!

"The past cannot be changed. The future is yet in your power." - Hugh White
