SURPASS YOUR DREAMS
E-Weekly Action Tip Archive
MONDAY MORNING ACTION TIP #32
Whether you are presently looking for work, or wondering if you will be looking for a new position in the future, the messages you are giving yourself on a daily basis have a profound impact on you. It could be the difference between staying strong and focused vs. unproductive and unprepared.
How are you the handling the uncertainty in your career? Are you helping yourself by reading articles in the newspaper that portray how bad the economy is performing, or articles written about the people who were told there was no way they could excel in their careers, and they succeeded anyway? (You may have to look harder for the success stories, but they are out there. Call or write me and I will show you a few.)
What you read, watch on TV, or whom you spend your time with has an effect on your outlook. It can be as extreme as having what you want in your career now or someday if you are lucky.
THE WEEKLY ACTION CHALLENGE
Your challenge this week is to stay positive.
First, start by getting a book, movie, or audiotape about someone you admire. I am sure that they were able to accomplish things in their lives that others said were impossible to achieve. Second, tell yourself that you can do the same. Third, write down what they did to reach their goals. This will keep their story alive in your own life. Finally, get ready to be amazed, as you are able to achieve some pretty great things too.
So, what do you say? You only have one life to live, so it might as well be a life you love!
HOW DID YOU DO?
If you followed this week's action tip, or it made a difference in your life, I would like to know. Please send your story in an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Each week, one lucky individual will win a free copy of my e-book "Living a Life You Love! The Pathway to Personal Freedom" for their contribution.
Last week's winner was Carole Davis who wrote in to say:
"I took your idea to organize myself and my desk at work. I work in a Dean's office at a College of Architecture. I need to have information at my fingertips for the students and faculty. I decided to use color folders and have the topic of the information inside on the tab area. The pink folder holds the current schedule, with the faculty members name, room number, etc. for each course. The purple folder holds forms for the students who intend to graduate next semester. The color system is working very well for me. Thank you for your tips, they are always valuable."
Congratulations to you Carole!
HAVE A GREAT WEEK!
