How to Give Yourself a Motivational Warm Up When You Wake Up
What is the worst thing you can do when you start your day?
Wake up feeling lethargic and expect yourself to perform at 100% from the moment you get up in the morning; and then compare how you are doing during the day against this unrealistic benchmark.
There is a better way!
As you wake up in the morning take charge of your thoughts in that early morning awareness before you fully awake.
Do this before you get up out of bed by repeating some affirmations. Affirmations work very well WHEN you say them with strong feelings in a state of deep relaxation.
If you have heard about affirmations before and never got the maximum benefit from them it is because you did not know how to take a very ordinary approach and supercharge it.
Supercharging affirmations depends on four factors:
At the end of this message I will tell you how to get fr*e tips from an expert that will explain the nuts and bolts of affirmations.
But for now...
When you use affirmations correctly their impact will last for at least a few hours - long enough to get you started on the day ahead.
Pay close attention now because I am going to reveal details of some of my personal and very private habits...
I use the following affirmations to help me get up in a positive state of mind:
To start the day with confidence...
You can do the same.
Remember to say these affirmations with feeling and do so quietly inside your head while in that relaxed awakening state.
Unless I use this ritual each morning I tend to feel negative about the day ahead. The difference from feeling negative to feeling positive is huge for the sake of those few minutes in the morning.
You can also go one step further and imagine the day ahead working out well. See yourself doing your best and easily dealing with challenges. Imagine yourself feeling confident and behaving in that way no matter who you deal with.
Imagine you will have a great day in this way and you are directing your unconscious to make it happen in the language it understands best - feelings and images.
Forget about will power.
Will power is a waste of time because itīs like talking to the most powerful part of your mind in a language it does not understand.

One of my greatest loves as a kid was fishing. This love developed quickly because my family owned a little bait shop that was located near Toledo Bend Lake in Louisiana. Toledo Bend is well known for its large bass and large quantity of crappies.

Free Will To The Rescue

The Top Five Great Reasons to Delay Pursuing Your Dream
Stop Procrastination - Just do it!
What stops you from 'getting things done?'
Courage and Fear
Mark Twain once said, "Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear not absence of fear."
The New Morality
In a world where dynamism alters egos and principles in a man every second, where men divest in tenets that secure them from being devout to something natural, where humanity seeks reasons to be ignorant just to feel sly and intelligent ? we're confronted with issues of morality. We can no longer be satisfied with being truthful incessantly, we can no longer be happy for the sake of empathizing, we can no longer be sympathetic in a world that beseeches us to be methodological, we can no longer be human when the invariable pretension has made us lose our ethicality forever ? we can only choose to be different moralists altogether. Succinctly ? we need a new morality.

Nurturing Your Vision
There is a new television show, called Blind Justice that will be replacing NYPD Blue. The show follows a Detective who, at the prime of his life and career, loses his vision in a heroic attempt to thwart a bank robbery and save other police lives. The shooting of this Detective results in his losing his eyesight/vision. He refuses the "disabled" label and sues to get his job back. The show doesn't premier until a week or two from now, so I know no more about it. What immediately struck me as I watched the promo for this new TV show was the idea of losing one's vision. Not physically becoming blind, but losing the vision we once had for our lives.
Creativity and Innovation Management - Motivation
Motivation in creativity and innovation is more important than personality traits. This is like possessing high intelligence ? one must be motivated to improve and apply it.
The Loneliness of Personal Growth
The cream rises to the top. That means that it separates itself from the milk. Perhaps that is what the New Age Movement is really all about. We tell ourselves that it's lonely at the top. Yes, it is. Maybe we have to figure out how to maintain ourselves as cream, but also stay whipped up within the milk? I'm picturing some sort of luscious desert all decadent and wonderful... like hot cocoa with the marshmallows stirred in rather than just floating on top. But then the marshmallow is no longer a unique wonderful treat, it's been broken down into the masses and lost it's integrity. It's a different lesson that comes into play after you've experienced a decent bit of enlightenment and growth.
