What Respect Has to do With Achieving Your Goals

“Respect drives success.”

The process of setting challenging goals and then writing out a plan to achieve them causes you to feel much more confident about achieving your dreams and consequently better about yourself.

You gain self-respect as you move step-by-step toward the completion of something that is important to you. It really is the key to success! It’s SO important to have clear plans for the changes you want to make in your life and to earnestly work toward realizing them.

Each progressive step you take toward reaching your goals is like a stepping stone of “like” and “self-respect.” You feel more positive and accomplished which fuels all your endeavors.

Take that step today!

Find the Happiness You Deserve

“Happiness is not the destination.”

Many women slog for a lifetime looking for happiness. They feel guilty  doing things they enjoy. So they take care of their jobs, their families, their children and their pets thinking that the time for happiness will come later. In the end, they discover that it doesn’t.

Believe that you DESERVE happiness right now!

You know those early hours in the morning when the house is quiet and the mist is floating outside the window? THAT is happiness. Remember how it felt to hold your baby for the first time? THAT is happiness. Remember how you felt when you achieved what seemed like an impossible goal? THAT is happiness.

Do not defer your happiness to a later date. Find joy in what you do every day.

How to Make Others Feel Good

“A brilliant conversationalist talks to you about you.”

Most of us are never happier than when the conversation has turned away from others and toward ourselves. When people talk to us about our lives, our family, our achievements or our goals, we subconsciously feel we must be worthy of attention. Our confidence rises; we feel energized, cared about and uplifted. Deep inside we’re a little proud that we have become the center of attention.

Now think about how little it would take from you to create all those positive feelings in others! A few questions, a focused ear, and a genuine interest in what you are hearing, and you too can pass on the gift of added energy, caring and confidence to a friend, a neighbor or a family member. Imagine the power we could create if we all did this today!

Let’s try it!

Rise Above it ALL

“Reality is something to rise above.”

Great things are accomplished when you believe that what’s inside of you is superior to your circumstances. Believing you’re more important than any of your problems, that you’re bigger than anything that can happen to you, takes courage.

You may have to dig deep for this courage, but it is there. Rise above fear and doubt. Remind yourself that you are in control, that the time to live is today!

I Made a Mistake. Now What?

“Admit your mistake! It’s your most empowering choice.”

We all make mistakes. It’s a fact of life. What matters is what you do afterward.

You have a choice. You can let your mistake torment you, embarrass you, and hold you back. Or, you can admit you made a mistake, learn from it, and move on.

Mistakes are lessons in disguise. You can learn something from each and every one. Next time you make a mistake, act quickly and decisively. Take responsibility and look for the lesson. Use the lesson to reach greater success and good fortune in your life.

Learn from your mistakes. Only then can they empower you to greater heights.
