The Daily Motivator for Jan. 24th – Making adjustments

Making adjustments

Success is never achieved in a straight line. Although it’s great to  carefully put together workable, realistic plans, life doesn’t always go  according to plan.

Yet even when conditions change quickly and dramatically, success is still possible. To succeed in such a world as this, you must be willing to constantly adapt.

When something fails to go the way you planned, it’s not the end of the  world. In fact, things could eventually turn out to be even better than you  planned.

Regardless of what happens or fails to happen, you can choose to successfully  work it into your path forward. Instead of making judgments about what you  cannot control, make adjustments in those things you can control.

It might be nice if everything were to play out according to your plan, but  the thing is, it won’t. There will most certainly be surprises, so you might as  well find a way to make positive use of them.

Don’t give up on your goals or dreams just because things change. Adapt, make  adjustments, and make every turn of events move you forward.

The Daily Motivator for Oct. 22nd – Energy and drive

Energy and drive

Just about any technique, process or system can lead to success or to  failure. What matters most is not the technique, but the energy and drive you  put into it.

If you feel you’re stuck in a hopeless situation, you’ll remain stuck as long  as you feel that way. As soon as you become enthusiastic about the opportunities  for improvement, you’ll begin to make those improvements.

In every kind of endeavor, there are those who succeed spectacularly and  those who barely get by. The difference is not in the occupation, but in  attitude, commitment and level of energy.

There are people who make it their business to make a positive difference in  life. Choosing each day to be one of those people will give you a continuing  supply of amazingly effective energy.

Even though you may not be in an ideal situation, you can create an ideal  outcome. Use the day, use the moment, use the encounter, use the circumstance to  lift the world higher.

With an attitude of generosity and a commitment to excellence, every day can  be a great day. Decide to give real, meaningful value to life right now, and  feel the positive energy begin

The Daily Motivator for Oct. 21st – Widen your view

Widen your view

If you’re having trouble finding an answer, it’s probably because you’re  continuing to look where you’ve already looked. If it seems that the problems  have no good solutions, widen your view.

The answers and the opportunities are most certainly out there. In order to  discover them you must let go of some assumptions and open yourself to new  possibilities.

Conditions change, people change, and the whole world can change quickly. If  you continue to see things exactly the way you did yesterday, you’re missing a  whole lot of new opportunities.

It’s great to stay firmly anchored in your long-held, most treasured values.  Yet it’s also vitally important to live and express those values in new,  creative and updated ways.

There are countless ways to enrich your life and your world that you’ve never  even considered. Step out of your routine, step back from your assumptions,  widen your view and see some of those possibilities.

Make the choice to venture beyond what you’re comfortable with, beyond what  you already know and assume. Great new treasures are waiting for you there.

Today’s Quiz: Are You Energy-Sensitive?

Are You Energy-Sensitive? Quiz

If you have ever found yourself getting irritated or depressed for no  apparent reason after spending time with certain people, the answer may be  simple: you may be a sensitive, absorbing or reacting to energy from these  individuals that isn’t healthy for you.

Answer these questions to see if this could be true for you, and then find  out what to do about it so you don’t continue to feel depleted or irritable when  you’re around these people.

1. Do you frequently feel angry, nervous, tense, or irritable around certain  people?

2. Do you often feel sad, low-energy, drained, or lethargic when you are  around some individuals?

3. Do you ever find yourself wanting to lie or cover-up around specific  people?

4. Do you frequently find yourself folding your arms over your midsection  when you are with certain people in your life?

5. Do you often feel ill-at-ease or uncomfortable with some individuals?

6. Does the mere sight of some people cause you to feel instantly defensive  or angry?

7. Do you find yourself inwardly groaning when you hear a specific person’s  voice on the phone?

The more questions you answered “yes” to, the more sensitive you probably  are.

Most of us are unconsciously influenced by others’ energies. These energies  are what they are, neither good nor bad–but some may be beneficial, and some  detrimental to us. The extent to which you are affected is a sign of your  sensitivity. Becoming aware of the energy-effects of interactions is a  wonderful first step in becoming more conscious, and in undoing the negative  effects of others’ energies on us.

If you think you are being adversely affected when you are in the company of  certain people’s energy fields, here are some things you can do:

If you are around someone whose energy makes you feel drained:

1.  Move away from the person.

2. Politely cut the interaction short.

3.  Redirect the person’s attention.

If you find yourself feeling irritable around someone:

1. First,  realize that you do not need to take this personally. Simply notice, “This is  someone who makes me feel prickly.”

2. Ground yourself. This can be as simple as just placing your hands on the  ground, or as complex as doing a brief relaxation and grounding exercise.

Today’s I Ching Hexagram for November 26th is 17:Following

17: Following

Monday, Nov 26th, 2012

 

 

 

 

Following brings supreme success. You may not be able to change the direction of the wind, but by frequently adjusting your sails, you can arrive at your destination.

Those who would acquire a following must speak the language of their followers. Those who would be loved must become the envisioned lover of their beloved. Those who would prosper must bend with natural forces and the pressures of society. In matters of principle, stand firm; in matters of style and taste, swim with the current.

In all human affairs, change is constant. In order to stay fresh, old ideas and patterns must continually be discarded in favor of new ones. Only by being adaptable to the demands of the time can the highest good emerge. Only by adjusting to changing circumstances can you prosper. Remain flexible, and you will gain the confidence of those around you. Bend and you shall not break.

Daily Motivator for August 21 – Reason to keep going

Reason to keep going

Just because life has let you down doesn’t mean that you must let yourself down. Pick yourself up, quickly take a positive step, and know that you’re closer to reaching your goal than you’ve ever been before.

You’ve been through some of the hard part and already experienced some of the difficulty you must go through. So keep going, and make that experience count.

Change your approach if that’s what is called for. Learn from where you’ve been, adapt and adjust your efforts to be even more effective.

Every day, every encounter, and every outcome is a new opportunity to move yourself forward. Keep yourself focused on the goal you’ve chosen, and keep yourself moving in the best way you know how.

The disappointments are just as much a part of the process as the victories. Be truly thankful for it all, and in your gratitude you’ll find a way to put it all to positive use.

Whatever has happened is a perfect reason to keep going. Keep going, and create the life you have chosen to live.
