Thought for the Day ~ By Lisa Scott Life Coach

Always do your best……on those days when you seem to dwell on all that you have to do, rather than doing the work.  Catch yourself. At times we stay in our minds…..and when we do we absorb the negative energy that comes with thinking too much and doing too little.  Thinking is the gateway to taking action…..even the tiniest steps are better than the best of intentions. So it is important to take action and commit to doing the things that will take you closer to realizing the life you want.  When we stay in our heads the only thing we accomplish is to underscore our fears and worries…..we do nothing to eliminate them. 

Your fears make decisions for you and invariably they are decisions that paralyze you and stop you from moving forward.  Before you strike out in anger or fear; call for the strength, energy, and presence of mind to do what is best for everyone involved.  Wisdom tells us to take the high road…..and the high road is any action or any word spoken with the intention of restoring peace, invoking healing, or advancing love.  When life deals you a rough patch….when you fear for the future.. remember the only way out is through……and that means you must take action.  Action will move your life along, it will inspire and motivate you to do the things that you know deep in your soul you must do for the sake of your own good.

Robin Sharma  said “The way we do small things determines the way that we do everything.  If we execute our minor tasks well, we will also excel at our larger efforts.  Mastery then becomes our way of being.  But more than this – each tiny effort builds on the next, so that brick by brick, magnificent things can be created, great confidence grows and uncommon dreams are realized.  The truly wise recognize that small daily improvements always lead to exceptional results over time.”
