Directing Change!

Good morning Mintdom!

Even though I wrenched my neck and shoulder, I feel GREAT! With the exception of last night and a few days ago, my eating habits are finally beginning to change. I even ate blueberries out of the container yesterday! Oh, AND although I did not make great choices last night for dinner, I actually LEFT the doggie bag at the restaurant. Baby steps!

“Goals allow you to control the direction of change in your favor.” – Brian Tracy

This morning, I am meeting a friend for coffee and we are supposed to bring three thought provoking questions. I thought that I would share my questions with you to think about.

1. People hide behind masks at one time or another – what masks do you wear? (Examples, busyness, fear, I am not _____enough, what will others think?)

2. What does success look like to you?

3. Do you say, “I have a problem?” or do you say, “I feel troubled?”

I am taking my direction from Brian Tracy and doing a little home retreat this weekend (one advantage of living alone) to look at my goals, organize my life a little, and do some writing. I want to tell you that you are important to me and so many of you have made a huge difference in my life. Thanks for accompanying me on my journey.

Make it a GREAT day, IF you choose to.

What are you waiting for?

Life is good!

    1. People hide behind masks at one time or another – what masks do you wear? (Examples, busyness, fear, I am not _____enough, what will others think?)—–> MY ANSWER: I sometimes hide behind a socialable mask Deb – when I really do not feel socialable. Not that I fake enjoying being with people, but that sometimes I would rather be alone or at an event where I am just part of the crowd without knowing anyone personally. (I think though I’ve been working on not wearing that mask in the last year or so)

    2. What does success look like to you? ——> MY ANSWER: Contributing positively to others, appreciating the blessings & lessons of life and having lived to leave this world a better place. OR as Arnold Palmer said – “you could say that the road to success is always under construction” but that would be the road so I’ll stick with my answer for now. lol

    3. Do you say, “I have a problem?” or do you say, “I feel troubled?” —–> MY ANSWER: Both! Problems are a part of life, it is my attitude and action that determines how/if problems affect me and others. / Feeling troubled usually means I don’t quite understand – which invites the quest to, and the option of letting go or go for change. Thanks Deb for your thought provoking questions and I hope to learn from others who answer your questions too! xo!
