Our past is what has shaped us and defined our character.
If we don’t learn from our past, we are destined to face the same struggles in the future.
Every day is an opportunity to learn and grow from the day that is behind us.
Take time to do a “Lesson’s Learned” and contemplate the events of the day.
Take into consideration:
- Your words
- Your attitude
- Your actions
Did you speak with respect? Did you share your knowledge open and freely?
Did you think your way was right, no matter what? How do you think you came across to others?
Did you show gratitude and appreciation? Did you do what you said you would do?
These are a few things to ponder as you open your mind and heart, and put your ego aside. Be a better version of you tomorrow.
Every day is a new opportunity…you have the opportunity to start the new day to use your words differently, change your attitude and take different actions.
You can also use it as an opportunity to go back and apologize to anyone you might have done wrong and ask for a new start.
It is a step in changing how you approach your new day.
We have so much to learn every day. Determine what you will do differently.
Love, hugs and growth fill your days!
The moment you become aware that you are getting frustrated.
- Take several deep breaths
- Reflect on where you are holding stress in your body
- Take several more breaths and release the tension from your body
- Refocus your thoughts
- Flip your frustration around and think of a different approach
- Take several more breaths, continue to calm yourself
- Forgive the frustration, release it
- Think of your best hope for that frustration
- Smile, continue to breathe
- Come from your new perspective to conquer your frustration
The power of the PAUSE!
Have you ever reflected on your life to identify recurring patterns?
These patterns might be around decisions you made, or repeating issues with different people and relationships, or even about breaking a bad habit. These patterns come with us from our childhood. When you reflect you will see some of the same problems you faced have repeated time and time again. You will also realize that you did the same thing to try to resolve it and got the same result each time.
So why do the same thing expecting a different result and it ends up the same way it did all of the other times?
To get different results become aware of those repeating patterns in your life . When the problem comes up again…take a different approach. Break your patterns by doing something different. If you do this, you begin to disrupt the patterns which will yield different results.
Hold your mirror up, and look deep into yourself. The problem you need to resolve is something you need to change within your own being. It’s easy to place blame on others, but it isn’t about others, it’s about you. It’s about the change you need to make for yourself in order for you to grow and take responsibility for your life.
Don’t do life the easy way. Challenge yourself everyday to think differently, have an open mind, change the way you do things. Make new patterns, blaze a new trail! Be in charge of your life!
Love and Hugs,
Application: Take time to reflect and see how many times the same problem reappears in your life. Take note. Think about why this problem keeps presenting itself to you. What do you need to do, what do you need to change, what will disrupt the problem when it reappears again and how will you break through to yield a different result?
