Daily Motivator for September 28 – Powerful combination

Powerful combination

Be thankful for what you’ve done, learn from it, and use what you now know to  move forward. Regretting and second-guessing your past actions will just hold  you back, so quit beating yourself up and start pushing yourself ahead.

Though your past hasn’t been perfect, it has been successful in many ways.  For what you’ve done in the past has provided you with the opportunities you now  have in the present.

In a very real sense, you are more knowledgeable, more capable, more  experienced and more inspired right now than ever before. You are now here,  ready to make good, meaningful use of all that.

Now, you have the opportunity to transform past disappointments into future  successes. Take whatever has happened, and choose for it to serve you well going  forward.

This is not the time to rest on your previous achievements or to be  demoralized by your past mistakes. This is the time to gather it all into a  positive forward momentum.

This is a new moment and you are the best you’ve ever been. Transform that  powerful combination into truly valuable results.

Daily Motivator for March 28 – Take a step back

Take a step back

Step back from the loud and pressing concerns of the moment. Step back, get some perspective, and remind yourself of how good life can be.

Many of the things you see as problems would have been considered to be blessings by people in an earlier era. Think of how good you have it, and of how you can make good and fulfilling use of what you do have.

You are able to make a difference, and that ability can literally take you anywhere you wish to go. Though your efforts may be difficult and challenging, those efforts give you some extremely valuable options.

Don’t take those options for granted by letting them sit idle and unused. Instead, take them to heart and consider how you can make life richer and more beautiful by making use of what you have.

Take a step back, and look objectively at where you are. What you will see is the great and wonderful opportunity that is your life.

Now, while you have it, seize that opportunity. Life is always good, because you can always make it better.

Get through it

Get through it

On the other side of the challenge is value. Get through it, and get the value.

Though the effort makes you weary, it also makes you strong. Get through it, and enjoy the full benefit of that strength.

You’ve already made it this far, and you’ve already established some good momentum. To get through it, just keep going.

Keep going, though the urge to quit may be strong. Keep going, get through it and get the rewards you’ve earned.

Get through it, not by fighting but by accepting and persisting in each moment. Get through it, not with resentment for what you must do but with gratitude for what you can accomplish.

You have what it takes, because what it takes is simply making one step, and then the next, and then the next. Step forward, get through it, and bring your own unique value more fully to life.
