One degree can make all the difference!

Success is about making small adjustments.   

In 1983 Korean Airliner 007 took off from from New York City headed to Anchorage Alaska and then on to Seoul Korea.  When the plane took off from Anchorage, there was an error of about 1 degree in the flight plan, and that 1 degree difference had a huge impact on that flight and the fate of the 269 people on board.

What you feed grows, what you starve dies

One of my favorite tales is of an old Eskimo fisherman who owned two dogs.  One was a black dog, the other was white.  He trained these two dogs to fight on command and on Saturday’s he’d take his two dogs to the town square to fight.  The townspeople would gather around and he would always take bets as to which dog would win the fight.

Let your walk match your talk!

Have you been talking about what you are going to do, rather than just doing it?

Do you talk about getting in shape?  Do you talk about saving money?  Do you talk about finishing your degree? Do you talk about that book you are going to write?

Your attitude determines your altitude! | Attitude

Attitude check! Your attitude is a little thing that makes a BIG
difference.

I don’t think anything has ever been written that better describes the importance of attitude than these words from Chuck Swindoll.

“The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude, to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than successes, than what other people think, say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill.

7 Ways to Make it A Great Day

1. Focus on other’s needs instead of your wants.  The great Zig Ziglar used to say, “You’ll get everything you want out of life if you just help enough people get what they want.”  Be the kind of person who thinks of others before yourself.  Remember Self-absorbed people are miserable.

2. Listen first, speak second.  There is a reason God gave you two ears and one mouth!  Listen twice as much as you speak.  Do people say you are a good listener?  With a little practice this is a skill you can easily develop and will help improve every relationship you have.

3. Resist the urge to complain.  It won’t make anything better and it brings negative energy to the room.  This isn’t you!  Bring positive energy with your presence, your words, and your attitude.  People will want to be around you.

4. Count your blessings not your problems.  No matter how bad things are or how many problems you are dealing with, stop and count your blessings.  And start with the ones we so easily take for granted.

Count your blessings, not your problems. Click To Tweet


5. Respond instead of react.  When you are sick and have a reaction to your medicine that’s bad; when your body responds that’s good!  If you are faced with a situation that makes you angry today do not react out of emotion. Be the kind of person who responds rationally with thought and poise. 

6. Make time to exercise!  You know you need to. You want to. You plan to…If this is describers you get some momentum this week by starting today.  You’ve heard it said, “Day One or One day?   Your body will release endorphins and you’ll feel better, be more focused, and have more energy.

7. Acknowledge God is your source and be continually thankful for every breath He gives.  Always acknowledge that God is the source of your life and the giver of every good thing you have. 
 

Choose to make it a great day!
