Stop running yourself ragged. It will not do you any good if you are always tired. You'll start to lose focus on things. You will start to get irritated easily. You will also find yourself taking things out on the people who are close to you and if you let this continue it will effect how you interact with people and any negativity that people feel will make them feel uncomfortable.

All of this can and will happen when you don't get your proper rest. Even if all you have is time for a power nap, rest will bring rejuvenation, relaxation, a more positive attitude and an all around new, refresher you.


via Encouragement, Inspiration and Words of Wisdom~


Day in and day out, week in and week out, month in and month out you keep doing everything except what you need to be doing. You need to write that book, start that business, clean that office, make those phone calls and put things in order. When you first said it, it was ok, then after the 2nd, 3rd and 4th time it started to turn into excuses.

You know you have the power and the ability to get it done. Stop talking yourself out of doing it. Stop saying it's too hard, it will take too long or I don't have enough resources.

"The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, not to worry about the future, or not to anticipate troubles, but to live in the present moment wisely and earnestly." — Buddha

Jul 27, 2012


There are only two symptoms of enlightenment, just two indications that a transformation is taking place within you toward a higher consciousness. The first symptom is that you stop worrying. Things don't bother you anymore. You become light-hearted and full of joy. The second symptom is that you encounter more and more meaningful coincidences in your life, more and more synchronicities. And this accelerates to the point where you actually experience the miraculous. (quoted by Carol Lynn Pearson in Consider the Butterfly)”
― Deepak Chopra, Synchrodestiny


“When you reach an obstacle, turn it into an opportunity. You have the choice. You can overcome and be a winner, or you can allow it to overcome you and be a loser. The choice is yours and yours alone. Refuse to throw in the towel. Go that extra mile that failures refuse to travel. It is far better to be exhausted from success than to be rested from failure.” – Mary Kay Ash, founder of Mary Kay Cosmetics

Brainstorming Power-Exercises!

5 brainstorming power-exercises you can do in 15 minutes:
  1. Freewriting: Have a general idea or topic in mind. Then set the clock and write anything that comes to mind. No matter where your idea goes, keep writing without stopping to review what you wrote. This technique will help you unlock any article ideas you have locked in your brain.
  2. Recall: After you’ve finished reading something (e.g. an article, book, etc.) set your stopwatch and begin writing everything you can remember about it. Any impressions? How do you think the topic impacts your niche? This technique helps build your authority by gathering new information and sharing originality.
  3. Bounce: Whether it’s a peer, a friend, or family member, talk to someone! Discuss your ideas or a new trend in your niche. This technique helps you get feedback on your idea, gives you another perspective, and allows your original idea to evolve.
  4. Lists: Pick a topic and begin creating a list of all the attributes of that topic. To give your list more direction, attempt to continue narrowing each topic into a more specific topic or list elements that are related to that topic. For example: Fruit, Apples, Seeds, Water, Fructose, Cross-Pollination, Photosynthesis, etc. This technique helps you create articles that are more focused and consider areas that are often left untouched by other Expert Authors in your niche.
  5. Impact: Consider your topic using an “impact” lens or the effect your topic has on you and your readers. Ask yourself: how does your topic impact you, your niche, your community, or society at large? This technique helps you consider your topic from another perspective, as well as creates a point-of-entry or orientation for readers.
Try out one or all of the above 15-minute brainstorming power-exercises to unlock your original ideas and provide quality articles readers crave. Doing so will not only make your writing sessions easier and more fruitful, it will help you increase your exposure and your credibility.

This week slow down and focus one ONE THING AT A TIME. Finish one task before you begin another. This is so important because ultimately the finish is the part that counts the most.
