10 Words a Day to Ponder
for a Year of
PEACEFUL PURPOSEFUL PROGRESS
for a Year of
PEACEFUL PURPOSEFUL PROGRESS
Why do we always seem to want to speak our mind? Always get the last word? Convince others we're right?
Peacefulness and Purposefulness always thinks before speaking. If it's not Peaceful and Purposeful, why say it?
What do you believe? "Believe about what?", you ask. What do you believe about anything?
What you believe about whatever it is will provide a positive.......or negative energy. Do you believe you can do "it"? You're probably right, because you're providing the thought energy. Don't believe you can? Again, you're probably right.
My hope is you believe in You and your Peaceful Purpose, and that you believe you can make daily Peaceful Purposeful Progress, because if you choose to believe it, you can do it.
Positivity produces a unique and powerful energy. If you've been around some positive people, you know exactly what I'm saying. On the other side of the coin, Negative thoughts produce a very limiting type of energy.
I've witnessed this in action on a daily basis for over 30 years of working with students, athletes, and clients. It's real and measurable stuff!
If you want a more powerful energy in your life, Peacefully Purposefully BE POSITIVE!
You can do it.
It's one of the rules of life they don't teach in the school curriculum; If we want to be blessed in this life, the best way to achieve that goal is to be a blessing to others.
When we Peacefully Purposefully make life better for other living beings, we will feel better ourselves. We will know our life makes a difference. We will inevitably benefit from our lives Purposefully befitting other life. Crazy!?!
The way we think literally affects everything we do. Think about it. Really, think about "HOW" you think.
We have the ability to Purposefully change the way we think. Does your thinking need to be more Positive? More Purposeful? More Peaceful? Less worried? Less stressed?
You can control how you think.......but you have to think .....about HOW you think....... often.
A Peace that passes all understanding. Have you read or heard that statement before? I read it and heard it growing up, but I sure didn't understand it.
I was busy chasing something, and I was making some kind of progress.
I'm not sure how purposeful, and I know it wasn't peaceful.
There's a Peace that passes our understanding. We may not fully understand the Peace our Creator offers, but we can definitely experience it. That is part of my hope for you; PEACE, along with a life of Purposeful Progress.
Life's an ongoing lesson. We can learn something purposeful from each new experience and each new day.
What's something you've learned about yourself lately?
I worked around some former military guys for a few years, and after every significant event, we made - I can't remember exactly what they called it, but I think it was - an After Action Report. We reviewed the event and discussed what we learned and what we could do better next time.
It was a very beneficial process, and one we should all probably use more often.
Proceed in the process of Peaceful Purposeful "Learning".
Well, what's your answer?
I'm not talking about what you wanted to be when you grew up. What kind of person are you compared to the kind of person you want to be?
If you're not the kind of person you want to be, what's keeping you from being that person?
There's nothing, and no one but you, keeping you from being who you want to be.
I hope you choose to be a person making Peaceful Purposeful Progress that makes a significant positive impact on those with whom you come in contact.
So many times we feel so rushed. Why?
So many times we feel so stressed. Why?
So, many times we feel so worried. Why?
On a side note...speaking of rushed.... I took this picture going about 70 miles an hour on a West Texas highway, but I had to get it!
When we truly decide on a life of Peaceful Purposeful Progress, we will arrange our to do list in a Peaceful Purposeful way, and we'll proceed accordingly.
Yep - ANYONE! Yes, that includes you. Would you like some Peaceful Purposeful Progress in your life? You can have it today and every day.
Start your day with Peaceful Purposeful Progress on your mind. Then, Peacefully move through your day aware of your Purpose in each activity. It's really an enjoyable process.
