Thought for the Day ~ By Lisa Scott Life Coach

Strive for excellence………..with focus, discipline, and commitment, you can achieve your goals. With awareness and inner work you can achieve personal excellence.  If all it took to be successful was to work really hard then most of us would find success easily.  The truth is that along with working hard we need to be mindful of the mental, emotional, and spiritual work that we must do to maintain strong self-esteem.  We are not defined by our work, that speaks to what we do, not who we are.  Rather we are who we are on the inside, and if that is not nourished, cherished and shared then our life quickly becomes meaningless.

Living a soul nourished life means you always endeavour to do the best possible thing, for the good of all concerned in most circumstances.  So today set your intentions to do your best to be kind, considerate, empathetic with those around you.  Make decisions that honour the greater good, treat people as if they are what they could be, help them to feel that anything is possible and in leaving that richness with people, you will leave them better than you found them…….now that is a day of excellence. 

Dr Wayne Dyer said “Self-esteem comes from the self, not from acquisitions and approval.  The measure of your life will not be in what you accumulate, but in what you give away.”
