Daily Motivator for February 19th – See it as a blessing

See it as a blessing

Whatever it is, see it as a blessing. With many things that’s very difficult,  yet with everything it is extremely valuable.

When you can see it as a blessing, you can also see the positive  possibilities. When you choose to see it as a blessing, you connect yourself to  the power of abundance.

Whatever you see as a blessing brings you new ways to create value. You begin  to solve the problem, to heal the pain and to transcend the challenge.

That’s a whole lot more positive and powerful than feeling sorry for  yourself. It’s a whole lot smarter than ruining your day with anger and  resentment.

You are extremely fortunate to be exactly where you are. Open yourself up to  see that good fortune and you’ll find ways to make great, fulfilling use of it. 

Accept and embrace the blessings that come your way, whatever form they may  take. The more thankful and positive you are, the more those blessings will  benefit your whole world.

Daily Motivator for February 18th – Face forward

Face forward

Yes, it’s interesting and somewhat instructive to know how things got the way  they are. What’s far more important, though, is what you choose to do going  forward.

Pay attention to what has happened but don’t waste your precious and powerful  energy becoming obsessed by it. Put that energy into moving in a positive  direction.

It’s what you can do now that really matters. As big as they might have been,  the expired opportunities of yesterday are now negligible compared to the  possibilities of today.

What you can do now is connect with your most treasured dreams. What you can  do now is act with passion and the highest expectations to bring those dreams to  life.

Instead of living with wistfulness, regret, or anger about the past, you can  live with positive purpose toward a great and shining future. The direction you  face makes all the difference in the world, so make the choice to face  forward.

This is a new moment, and with it comes the chance for a new start. Take that  chance, grab that opportunity, and live your life forward in a beautiful and  fulfilling way.

The Daily Motivator for Feb. 14th – Highest expectations

Highest expectations

If you’ve been disappointed, it’s tempting to lower your expectations so you  won’t be disappointed again. But that’s not how it works.

In reality, when you expect less you’ll be disappointed more. The lower you  aim, the less fulfilling your life will be.

You deserve a life that’s full and rich, so set your expectations high. And  see each disappointment as an opportunity to set those expectations even  higher.

In one way, disappointment is a good thing because it means you are making an  attempt. The key to fulfillment is to keep making those attempts, to keep  raising your expectations, and to work your way forward.

A strong sense of purpose is what will keep you going. By continuing to  expect the best of yourself you can move quickly away from each  disappointment.

When you fail to reach your expectations, raise those expectations even  higher. Make it meaningful enough and you’ll make it happen.

The Daily Motivator for Feb. 12th – Get yourself through

Get yourself through

Wishing, complaining, begging and avoiding won’t do it. The way to get  through it is to go through it.

If there’s something you’ve been putting off, put it back on and get it done.  If there’s a problem that’s been chasing you, stop running, stop hiding and  start solving.

You can be amazingly resourceful and effective when you want to be. Now is  the time to want to be.

When the situation feels painful, imagine how great you will feel to get  beyond it. Imagine, and then manifest your imagined outcome by doing what you  must do.

There’s a light at the end of the tunnel, and its brightness comes from your  efforts. Make those efforts, keep that light shining brightly and get yourself  through to the other side.

You’ve made a positive difference many times before and you absolutely can do  it again. Feel your purposeful power as it successfully pushes you through.

Daily Motivator for Feb. 11th – No rush

No rush

It’s better to wait at the traffic light than to get hit speeding through as  it changes to red. It’s better to take the time and do the job right than to  rush through and get it wrong.

Before jumping ahead to what’s next, get the full value out of what’s now.  Don’t give up your quality experience of the present in a futile attempt to get  yourself more quickly into the future.

Time spent waiting never has to be a waste. You can always make it into a  valuable opportunity.

That’s because the value of each moment is not dependent on where you are or  what activity you’re engaged in. The value of your life in each moment comes  from the value you choose to give it.

If you’re in such a hurry to get somewhere else, you lose the ability to give  your best to where you are. Slow down, stop rushing and start putting real  quality, substance and richness into whatever moment you’re in.

Instead of being a slave to the clock, be a master of your own beautiful  experience. Your life right now is much too valuable to speed past, so treasure  this very moment in this very place, and make it great.

The Daily Motivator for February 8th – Start the doing

Start the doing

Don’t be too smart for your own good. Don’t be too critical of your own  work.

Prepare for what you intend to do, and plan how you will do it, but not to  the point of obsession. Sooner rather than later, finish the planning and start  the doing.

Even though you won’t get it perfect, focus all your energy on getting it  done. Even though you may have your doubts, push on through them and keep  going.

Achievement is never clean or linear. Great achievement is messy and  inconvenient, daunting and often quite unpredictable, and it is worth all  that.

You have great achievement within you, today, in this place, using what you  have and what you know. What a shame it would be to never let that unique  achievement see the light of day.

So get busy right now and begin to let it see the light of day, on this day.  You have so much to give to life, and such exquisite fulfillment to savor from  doing so.

The Daily Motivator for Jan. 27th – Making the effort

Making the effort

When you don’t feel like making the effort, the thing that will help you more  than anything else is to go ahead and make that effort. Even when you are too  tired or too bored, too distracted or too dismayed, the way out is to get busy  and put forth effort.

Wishing for things to be better won’t make things better. What will make  things better is taking positive, focused action.

Making excuses won’t make things right. The way forward is to make a real  difference by making a real effort.

Just because it’s difficult, uncomfortable and inconvenient, doesn’t mean  it’s impossible. You have what it takes to take effective action, and that is a  powerfully positive thing to do.

Instead of wasting your priceless time with procrastination, make good use of  the time that’s now yours. Spend that time making a meaningful difference.

What you get out of life depends on what you get out of yourself. Make the  effort, again and again, and give much more beautiful and meaningful life to all  of life.
