Let's give 'em something to talk about...

Hello Friend,

You will never get a second chance to make a first impression....

While that is absolutely true, do you put as much effort into
making sure that your second, third, fourth... impressions
are just as powerful?

Do you ever really stop and think about the impressions
you are leaving on other people?

When someone has an encounter with you, 
do they walk away better than when they came?

Mother Teresa said, 
"Spread love everywhere you go. 
Let no one ever come to you without leaving happier."

I share my thoughts in a bit more detail below,
(fast forward through the first minute to skip the banter, lol)
and I'll be the first to admit, that's a pretty tall order!

Humans by nature are selfish.
We are super quick to point out 
how someone else made US feel, aren't we?

But we don't often stop and think on the reverse.

If you want people to leave your presence 
feeling just a little happier than when they arrived,
here are a few things to keep in mind.

1. Don't criticize or condemn
2. Give honest and sincere recognition and appreciation
3. Smile

Be mindful of this as you got about your day today, 
try implementing one or all of the things above,
and note the response you get from others.

I bet it will not only leave them with a 
favorable impression of you,
but it will change your attitude as well. ;)

Until next time... Blessings!

The Miracle Morning...

The Miracle Morning...

Hey Friend,

Are you an 'early to bed early to rise' kinda person, or a night owl who has a hard time crawling out of bed in the morning (or afternoon)?

I have never really been a night owl, but also not a super early riser until the last few years.

I stumbled upon this book called 'The Miracle Morning' (ever heard of it? read it?) and it had me intrigued. I don't want to spill all the beans, so let me just share with you the blurb from the back cover...

"What if you could miraculously wake up tomorrow and any - or every area of your life was transformed? What would be different? Would you be happier? Healthier? More successful? In better shape? Would you have more energy? Less Stress? More Money? Significantly better personal and professional relationships? Which of your problems would be solved?

What if I told you that there is a 'not-so-obvious' secret that is guaranteed to transform any - or literally every area of your life, faster than you ever thought possible? What if I told you it would only take 6 minutes a day?

Enter the Miracle Morning. What's now being practiced by thousands of people around the work could perhaps be the simplest approach to creating the life you've always wanted. It's been right there in front of us, but this book has finally brought it to life.

Are you ready? The next chapter of your life - the most extraordinary life you've ever imagined - is about to begin."

Woah! Those are some pretty serious claims, right?

Let me back up a minute and tell you this isn't some far-fetched, woo-woo, hoogely-boogely stuff... I'm not all about that.
It's also not simply a get-rich-quick kinda book that touts nothing but prosperity and wealth... I'm not all about that either.

This is about YOU... your mindset, your outlook on life, your attitude.
See your life is what you make it. That doesn't mean things will always be easy and that you will never fall on hard times or walk through dark valleys... but the way you approach those moments in your life is what will make all the difference. 

So why am I telling you this... 

Guarding the Gate opens in just one week (if you aren't sure what that is, you can click THIS LINK for the description), and one of the first things we will be doing there, TOGETHER, is a 30-Day Miracle Morning Transformation Challenge. This will be based off of the book (obviously) which you can grab HERE if you don't have it yet. 

Whatever negative thoughts that are already running through your head as to why you can't do this, let them go... right now! If you want to change any of those areas of your life listed above, now is the time to make it happen. "If you want your life to be different, you have to be willing to do something different first!" ~TMM

So now is your chance to do something different, with a group of others who are doing something different, too! Are you ready to...

"Conquer the morning and you'll conquer the day."

I would love to know if you plan to join us on this journey. Be sure to grab your book, request to join our group, and then either comment on this blog post, or message me personally. Share what goals you WILL accomplish during these 30 days so I can encourage you and cheer you on! And if you have questions, ask away!

Until next time... Blessings!
