Are your thoughts killing you?

Don't let your thoughts get robbed by negativity!

Don’t let your thoughts get robbed by negativity!

Throughout the day, we have millions of thoughts that take us wildly in many directions. Some of those wild directions are good, and some may be killing your dreams of a great future.

What kinds of thoughts run through your mind on a daily basis? Are your thoughts happy? Sad? Confused? We have all heard of being disciplined, but have you heard of having a disciplined thought life? It’s not something we are generally taught or exposed to in any school system or work environment.

Discipline should run throughout your life, not just your physical habits. Making a plan for your business or your life will lead you in a successful direction as long as you have the discipline to be consistent.

And how do you do that?

Start with where you are. “Take one small thing and decide that you will change it for the better.” Since we’re on the topic of thoughts, start there.

When your thoughts lean toward the negative, immediately reframe and think of the opposite. Don’t let your thoughts rob you of what should be a great life.

What do you do to change your mindset? I would love to know. Share your comments below.

Simple pleasures give you peace of mind in your business day

Simple Pleasures Morning Ritual

Most business days start with emails, phone calls, proposals, and invoices to send out, it’s an overwhelming feeling before your day even gets started. There’s a way to get around the hectic brain overload. It’s something I call simple pleasures.

Are you curious about how to make these simple pleasures work for you in your business? If yes then let’s get started.

Simple business pleasures essentially are finding ways to enjoy the process while focusing on the end result. Here are a few examples about what it means to create the experience of simple pleasures.

Create a ritual that you follow first thing in the morning before starting your business day. Doing something for yourself each day in the morning starts your day off feeling strong and empowered.  Start with your list of tasks that need to be accomplished and grab yourself a tall, sweet and creamy latte while you’re working on your morning routine.  We all know how caffeine can get your day jump started with a jolt. If you need a smoother entry to your day then try a fruit juice or a smoothie. It’s all about creating a simple pleasure that can be introduced in your morning ritual to make you feel strong and empowered.

Another suggestion, is to plan your breaks into your workload. Just before you start a high powered meeting take a break before you start. During the break find a quiet spot with a pleasant atmosphere, and create a sense of well being within yourself and positive focus around the topic of your meeting. This simple pleasure helps build a sense of peace within you before the meeting. It helps you stay on topic and builds a buffer between you and any frustration that may arise during the meeting due to outside sources of stress. Use the memory of the break, to bring yourself back to a state of wellbeing, and carry on with the meeting feeling recharged.

When uploading articles and information to your social media sites choose articles that are in your industry that really speak to you. The simple pleasure of reading a well-written article can spur ideas that generate more business or exposure for you company or product and your audience will like them as well.

Simple pleasures are the key to life but can also be a source of empowerment in business. Find ways to incorporate sources of joy in your work process.
