extraordinary-life

The power to live an extraordinary life is not defined by anything other than your willingness and desire to step out of the ordinary. Be daring and develop a vision of what is on the other side. Step into the unknown and live an extraordinary life.

Work like there’s no plan B. Adapt, Adjust and continue your journey. Plan B could be a distraction and become your excuse.

“Thought For Today Monday, November 28, 2016

 

img_1222It has been stated that upwards of 75% of all changed in our lives has been thrust upon us; we’ve had very little if any choice in the matter. Unfortunately most, if not all of this change is unwanted. We must work daily understanding that change is inevitable. We must work daily on being a catalyst for positive change in our lives.

Happy Monday

 

The Chains of Habit

“The chains of habit are too weak to be felt until they are too strong to be broken.” ~ Samuel Johnson (1709-1784)

Most of life is habitual.  We do the same things we do today as we did yesterday and the day before and thirty days before that.  Some habits are good, lots are bad, but regardless, they make us who we are.

Unfortunately, as today’s thought reminds us, we do not realize we have fallen into a bad one until its to strong to be broken.   The key is to successfully control the habits we follow in a way that we recognize early enough if this is a habit we want to fall into.  Once you have fallen into this habit, it will be necessary for you to find a new, more positive and productive habit to help you break the one you want to break.

Say for example you  routinely come home after work and find yourself  in the habit of sitting in front of the tv  set for hours at a time.  Before you know it, you have gained weight, your heart is weak and your attitude is shot.  This is a habit.  What will you replace it with?  What new, more positive and productive habit will you find that stimulates you enough to give up the boob tube?

Do you have a habit you’d like to replace?
