Finger Lickin' Motivation
Ever hear the story about a sixty some year old man named Sanders? Here’s a guy that owned a restaurant in a small town, when, one day the highway department decided to put in a highway that took away all the traffic from his door. In a short time, Sanders was forced to close his doors.
With very little resources, Sanders looked around and realized that all he had was an idea. A chicken recipe. He figured he could maybe sell the recipe, but that would be a one time sale. So he decided that he would take it, and instead of selling it, he would give it away for a piece of the profits from the sales of the chicken made from his recipe.
After 1009 attempts, he was able to convince someone to invest in his recipe, and COLONEL SANDERS KENTUCKY FRIED CHICKEN was born.
How many attempts are you willing to make in order for your idea to succeed? If it worked for a broke man in his 60’s, what makes you think it can’t work for you?
Rules of Happiness
What does it take for you to be happy? Take a moment and give it some thought. I used to think that in order for me to be happy, I needed to have x amount of money in my pocket, all my bills paid, business going good. I had to weigh a certain amount, with no aches or pains. My significant other had to be happy, and people treating me good.
Check and see what your rules are for you to be happy. What do you believe has to happen for you to feel happy?
Now see if you’ve made it easy or difficult for yourself? And be honest, because the greatest pain in life is when you go against your own values.
Why not create rules that are easy to fulfill and live by? How about, if I smile, I feel happy. If I’m alive, I feel happy. If I can be with myself or with another, I feel happy.
Change your rules so you can win the greatest game of all, the game of happiness and the game of life.
How NOT To Invent A Light Bulb
Remember Thomas Edison? If it weren’t for him we’d probably all be watching TV by candlelight. But, did you know that it took him 10,000 attempts to create the electric light bulb?
During his efforts to invent the light bulb, a reporter came to him and asked, “How many times are you going to fail at creating the light bulb?” Mr. Edison turned and looked at the reporter and said, “Son, I haven’t failed! I’ve simply discovered another way not to invent the light bulb!”
Keep in mind, the only time we fail is when we stop putting out sincere effort. Keep adjusting your approach, make finer and finer distinctions, and realize you are learning. Discover the ways that don’t work so you never have to live them again.
If you haven’t got exactly what you want in your life yet, maybe you’re on the right track, but you just haven’t discovered the light.
Wasting Time on FEAR
According to Zig Zigler, one of America’s favorite motivational speakers and authors, FEAR is an acronym which stands for “False Evidence Appearing Real.” Psychologists tell us that most of our fears are false and that worrying about them is unnecessary. Statistics show that people spend their worry time as follows:
|1. Things that will never happen||40%|
|2. Things that are in the past||30%|
|3. Needless concerns about one’s health||12%|
|4. Petty and miscellaneous cares||10%|
|5. Real and legitimate concerns||8%|
Of the real and legitimate fears, half of them (or about 4%) are about things we cannot influence. By taking positive steps we can eliminate about 2 percent of the real dangers we face. With these percentages, does it really pay to worry? Just do what we can about what we can and move on with our lives!
When FEAR and DOUBT knock on your door, let confidence and faith answer and they’ll find there was no one there!
Want to discover how to calm down quickly? Notice your internal dialogue. How fast are you talking to yourself? Does the topic change rapidly, or maybe constantly?
What are you saying to yourself and what tone of voice are you using? Are you saying something like, “Why does this always happen to me?” or “How could I be so stupid?” Do those kinds of questions empower you?
Try this: Stop your internal dialogue!!! How? Turn your awareness external! Pay attention to the sounds around you and just listen to the external.
Next feel the air going in and out of your nostrils as you breath, and your feet on the floor.
Notice and actually feel the temperature in the area right now, and experience the smells and you’ll notice that internal dialogue dwindling and perhaps ceasing.
Take control of your internal dialogue for a day and see how much calmer you become.
