People are living longer today than they were in 1900: 30 years longer!
If you were given 30 years, how would you spend them?
Do you approach challenges as something good, as a game, or as something to be avoided? Barny Stinson, a character in the TV series How I Met Your Mother loved challenges and was often heard saying “challenge accepted” as he took on some crazy challenge. That line always made me laugh. I seem to enjoy challenges, too.
The mastermind group that emerged from the Transform Fear Into Action class has evolved in interesting and exciting ways. Initially, the group was planning to continue working on their fear transformation, based on the core curriculum of the course. It’s grown from that, though, and now we are working on exploring our worlds with the core concept — the transformation tool — helping us look at our worlds.
For the longest time, I thought of values as being reserved for “right” and “wrong”. I guess with age comes wisdom because I now understand values as being the things you believe are important for your life, love, work, and play. They are part of the guidelines you use to set your priorities. Your mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual aspects are influenced by your values. They also are part of the barometer for how well you are living your life. Values reflect your integrity.
To get you to your goals in life, what elements will you add, and not let anything or anyone take you off course. That can be a big challenge, especially if your goal isn’t strong or well anchored.
Boundaries are something most people I know can stand to do more work with. We benefit by having rules and limitations on our behaviors and how we let others treat us. Having boundaries around our thoughts and emotions is a new spin on the concept, a spin I hadn’t considered before.
What do you think of when you hear something like “Live your dash”? My immediate thought was about how I live life — dashing around, being involved with many things, and hurrying and scurrying.
Everything in life cycles. In college, as an environmental conservation student, we talked about weather, population, and food cycles. When I was in real estate we talked about sales cycles. Humans have life cycles.
What a concept! It’s one I subconsciously have subscribed to, and it took a friend pointing out the value of learning from failures that helped me realize the benefit of making that concept a conscious one. Do you seek and embrace failure on your path to learning and winning, or do you shy away from failure? Do you go so far as to avoid starting things you fear you’ll fail at doing right the first time?
