Along with being thankful, I am preparing not just the meal, but preparing for another year.

I know there two more days until Thanksgiving, than Christmas will be in full action. I have work to do, along with cooking of the meal; I always think again. I missed the mark last week on my sales presentation, there always next year. Until then, I have a lot to prepare for not just the holidays.  I am also getting ready for a sad end to 2016; we lost some good people this year, besides for Prince.  Then end of the year recap will be sad, including the farewell to #President Obama.  I will be shedding a lot of tears.  It time to think about what there is to look forward to for yourself in the coming year.

 

Starting with, I am thankful for each day, and the little things in my life.

Is Your Mind Solving A Problem For You?

Is your mind solving a problem for you?
I wake up at 7am this morning, my mind was filled with all the things that I wanted to accomplish today.  My thoughts were in overload with a clear vision as I got up ready to work.  Each day I try to a little more for myself; however it can be hard to remember everything that needs to be done in a day.  You can be at work when the thoughts of cleaning your home and getting the laundry done will come into your mind, along with other task that you want to complete. Some of us will make a list, and add many tasks that we would like to accomplish.  By the time you go to bed at night, then remember the tasks that were to be to complete that day.  There are always issues that take priority as the time gets away.
They say when you sleep, your mind can solve problems that you may have, also it can give you ideas of the things you can do to make your life better.  After a good sleep, you will be ready to take action to complete some of the good thoughts that are on your mind.
One of my class assignments was to make a list of my daily schedule charting how many times I started and stop one task.  After a couple of hours, I could see that this was one of my major issues.  I could not go an hour without someone interrupting me, was talking to me, the phone was ringing, among other things like something else that took a priority over what I was doing at the moment.
How many times during your day are you interrupted?  What is your problem that you need to be solved?  Is there something that is on your mind?
Problem solving issue?  I will let you know how I solved my problem in the future.  This is going to be good.

Start something, go somewhere; do nothing and you go no where.

Start something, go somewhere, do nothing and you will go no where.  I was watching this guy.  He really wanted to mow the lawn; however, the forecast said rain. Work is work, and he obviously needed the money.

Whenever we plan to do something; there seems to be other things that will get in the way.  That is how it is in life.  We can avoid a lot of things by let other issues get in the way.  Sometimes we just have to get started, regardless of what may or may not happen.  Some people will use this same reason, rain not to go to church.  However, can you use that as a reason not to go to work.  Can the excuse stop you from moving forward in life?

We have to be able to move on, regardless of what may come our way.  Don’t let the rain, or any issue stop you from seeing the big picture in your life.

“I wanted to be where you are.” Tayler, Beyonce, or Bruno

“I want to be where you are.” 
It is a song by the late Michael Jackson. It was also the message that Les Brown gave at a seminar called, “Get Motivated.”
Where you are
He said he began his career by watching others and thinking I can do that.  He started with nothing, no money, no family backing, or even a college education; he has had many successful career and made millions.  His message was, where I am standing, you can be also.  Now that is motivation.  Looking at other and be inspired to do the same things or do better.
 
There are a lot of people who can sing better than Tayler Swift, and Bruno Mars, or dance better than Beyonce.  However, they do put their self out there toward making it.  I met a person at this same seminar who was a book writer.  He has made over $100,000 on a book that has not been published.  Why is it that we live by seeing others succeed, and feel disappoint that we were not the one with the success?  I have heard many success stories; most started the same way.  When you want to succeed you have to take a steps toward your goals.
 
I have been many seminars on being successful.  You can’t be disappointed in anything that you have never done for yourself.  Even if you fail, you have continue trying.
 
One of the first things I learned from reading and going to success seminars, is that you are going to fail many times before you make it.
 
The second thing is to keep on trying.  You will learn and do better, when you have failures by trying again.
I remember applying for a government job, where they would give a standard test to certify you for the position.  It was the same test they gave for each entry-level job.  I must have taken that test about five times over the next three months.  Each time I would do better on the test, by being able to read more carefully and correct a questions that I may have answered wrong on, or missed the time before.  By the times, I got my results from the last test I was in the top ten percent. 
Motivate and push yourself to do something that you are good at, then take it to another level.  I will tell you about levels that next time.

It is time to get motivation about a New Year

It is a new day, what will motivation you to accomplish your goals for the new year?

 

Set Goals

I was watching a show of television this morning, where they were asking people about their new year resolution.  As they talk to each person, they asked them about their goals for they new year.  The things like stop smoking, exercise, eat heather.  The one they were talking with seem to have given up on the goal, even though we are only a few days into the new year. 

They are like “most” of us, who have to be forced or see a value of accomplishing our goals.  Just like if you want to stop smoking for the new year, what would you have to do in order for that to happens.  If you were told that you have an illness required you to stop smoking, then you would more motivate to stop tomorrow.  No one sets a goal to be prepared for the loss of a job.  However, when we are faced with it, we will save, cut back and look for other jobs.  Weight loss is a major one; it normally starts with a goal after we have gained a large amount over the holidays.  After all we have been living with those extra pound for some time.

However, there is time to make a plan and accomplish some goals for the year.  I am a firm believe in starting over;  no matter how many times it takes.  I also believe in baby steps, we give up when we put more on ourselves then we can handle.  Setting goals is a great way to get motivated.

 

Happy New Year

Let’s get motivated for 2016.

Let’s get motivated for 2016.

 

2016

 

We only have a few more days left in the years.  The Pastor preached on finishing 2015 in a mighty way, so I have been seeing what things in can complete this year or get things resolved.  Some things I just did what I could and then went on to take care of other issues.  When we can get stuck on one thing too long, we don’t have time to do anything else.  The best way to end 2015 is to get what you can complete, then it truly will be a great beginning to a new year.

I don’t want to feel down when I want to get up.

Have you ever heard a sad song when you are feeling down?  It is like world is crumbling around you, when you have bad news at the hard times in your life.  The word is “crumbling around you.”

 

On the Ground

   You have to remember that you are not the only one going through things in life. We all will have problems, as one time or another, some more than others.  The only thing you can do is hold on, because the time will pass.  We have to take each day as it comes.  The one problem that we did not have is we got up this morning.

     The best thing to do is look up, and move toward a better day.
