Five Questions for Seeing the World Through the Eyes of Greatness

What is great about you?

What is great about your friends and family?

What is great about the place where you live?

Do this by yourself or get together with a friend and write down at least ten answers or more for each question.

The Parade of Your Incredible Accomplishments

Have you ever noticed that you can do a great many things well, then do one thing in a way that you determine is wrong, only to end up spending a disproportionate amount of time focused on the one thing you did WRONG?

I sure have!

We can spend hours and even days analyzing questions like: “Why did I do it wrong?”   And “Why am I not good at this?”

Meanwhile, a PARADE OF OUR INCREDIBLE ACCOMPLISHMENTS can float through our lives with us barely noticing.

What would it to be like to focus on our parade of incredible accomplishments, instead of the things we feel we do wrong?

(I ask this question as a man who has spent much time hot on the “What Went Wrong” Trail, “The I Can’t Do It” Trail, and an old special favorite of mine, the “What I did Totally Wrong” Trail.  I can tell you from countless years of experience that these trails are  an especially “SORRY” lot of trails.  I know this because I said, “I’m sorry” an awful lot when I was traversing them.)

After years of being on the “Sorry” trails, it has finally occurred to me, why not follow the parade of my incredible accomplishments towards my dreams instead of getting lost and frustrated on these others trails?  Why not learn to become a highly skilled navigator who is adept at finding this parade route anytime, day or night?

When we focus on becoming highly skilled navigators consistently charting a course towards our parade route, we become much more in tune with the clues pointing towards our accomplishments.  We can begin to catch the scent of our big dreams in the little successes here and there, in the gradual accumulation of our victories.

When we are starting off, this trail of successes and good things might not look like the Macy’s Day Parade.  In fact, it may be so faint that we really need to concentrate to find it.  But keep looking!  This doesn’t mean that our accomplishments aren’t there.  It just means that we are so attuned to focusing on the “Sorry” trails that we haven’t taken the time to fully appreciate or even notice them.

Navigating your way back to the PARADE OF YOUR INCREDIBLE ACCOMPLISHMENTS is simple and fun.  Every time you notice and celebrate something that went well, you discover your parade route.  Every time you savor and focus on your successes, small or large, you take part in your parade.  Each time you delight in the gift you are to the world, you are in the center of your parade.  Every time you savor and focus on how your dreams, the sights and sounds of your parade are with you.

You have the opportunity to rediscover your parade route with fresh eyes each new day.  This is cause for celebration!

Game of the Day

Enjoy finding your way to the PARADE OF YOUR INCREDIBLE ACCOMPLISHMENTS today!

Joy is Your True Wealth

Do ever feel like, “Hey, where’s the money?”

In this Friday One Minute of Excitement video, Jason talks about money.  Usually when we have money we feel like, “Yaayyy”.  But when we don’t have money we feel like, “Hey, where’s the money?”.  We’re sad, we’re depressed.  There’s so much to life beyond just bills and checks.  Today find things that make you happy wherever you can, regardless of money.

Noticing Abundance Before It’s Gone

I have a sad story. The other week I lost a ten-dollar bill.  (Well, not too sad.  It could’ve been worse.  Or I guess it could’ve been better.  I could still have that ten-dollar bill.)

In retrospect, I think what happened is that I gave a cashier a ten instead of a one, and he didn’t notice my mistake.

So through my lack of attention, I instantly lost nine bucks.  Now I’ve had the skills to count money since early grade school, but in my distraction I didn’t use them to appreciate and contain my abundance.

The money I suddenly lost set me pondering:

How much of the abundance in our lives do we lose sight of each day because of our inattention to it?

We have the skills to count our blessings, to be appreciative of our talents, but if we are distracted with other stuff like what went wrong in the past, what is going wrong right now, or what might hypothetically go wrong in the future, our abundance can literally slip right through our fingers as I let that ten-dollar bill slip through mine.

We can choose to focus on noticing our abundance.  WHEN WE APPRECIATE OUR ABUNDANCE WE CAN LITERALLY SAVE IT FROM BEING LOST.

Now I’m much more alert when I’m counting out money, and simply through this alertness, I have more of it.

The Appreciation of Compliments

How do you receive a compliment?

In this Friday One Minute of Excitement video, Jason talks about getting a compliment.  It’s easy to disregard compliments and think that you don’t deserve them.  Instead, when someone gives you a compliment, smile, wait five seconds, absorb what they’re giving you, bask in it and say, “Thank you.”  Then bask in that compliment the rest of the day. They’re giving you a mirror of your brilliance.

When Too Many People Offer You Too Many Good Opportunities All At Once: Five Tips For Turning OPPORTUNITY OVERWHELM Into OPPORTUNITY EASE

Realize That The Opportunities You Are Offered Are A Good Sign

Opportunities are exciting and a sign you are on the right track.

But sometimes there’s so much going on we start to feel short of breath and we begin to struggle with our opportunities and push them aside, almost as if our opportunities are our enemies.  At these times, it’s worthwhile to remember that opportunities are what we want.  We want to embrace our opportunities while, at the same time, managing them.

Appreciate All The Opportunities You Are Given (Even If You Decide Not To Take Some Of Them)

Let the people giving you opportunities know how grateful you are.  This is as simple as saying “I really appreciate your offer and I look forward to having a chance to think it over.”

Decide Which Opportunities Are A Good Fit For You

The opportunities that people offer you will likely require your time, energy and money.  Before taking someone up on an opportunity, really think about if you are interested in it; if it is in-line with your goals and dreams; and if you want to devote your time and resources to it.  If the answer is “Yes,” proceed with confidence.  If the answer is “No,” find a way to say a polite and definite “No Thank You.”  This “No Thank You” frees you from your obligation to engage in the opportunity.  And just as importantly, your “No” frees the person who asked you to find someone who is truly interested in his or her opportunity.

Schedule So That Not Everything Needs To Happen All At Once

If you decide to take an opportunity, schedule with the person offering you the opportunity so that the opportunity is manageable For You.  You are doing yourself a great service, as well as the person offering you the opportunity, because if you are overwhelmed it will be much harder for you to give their opportunity your full attention.

Write Opportunities You Decline Down To Give You More Choices Later

If you choose to express appreciation for an opportunity someone has given you while, at the same time, declining it by giving them a polite and definite, “No Thank You,” you might consider making note of the opportunity and then making a notation on your calendar to reconsider it in a month or two.  When you reconsider it, you may just reconfirm that you are glad you said, “No.”  Or you may realize that while you are glad you said “No” the first time, the opportunity now sounds good to you.  In this case, you have the information to contact the person and tell them that you rethought his or her offer.

Game of the Day

The next time you experience OPPORTUNITY OVERWHELM how will you use these tips to turn your overwhelm into OPPORTUNITY EASE?

The Power of Self Love

Have You Told Someone Special That You Love Them?

In this Friday One Minute of Excitement video, Jason speaks about loving yourself.  Have you told someone really special today that you love them?  Have you told yourself that?  When we tell ourselves that we’re amazing, we give ourselves power, softness and grace.  Tell yourself, “I love you” as many times as you can today.
