Take the opportunity today to be less judgemental.

Hiya,

If you judge someone, you have no time to love them.

Mother Theresa said that and she was right. When we judge we are at
least partially seeing our own faults in others. Because we recognise
them in our selves and dislike them we feel the need to dislike it in
others. If only we could forgive our own failings we could forgive
them in others. After all none of us are perfect. Jesus said ‘Let he
who has no sin caste the first stone.’ Coming to the same point.

So the next time you find yourself criticizing someone take a moment
to consider if you yourself have acted or thought in a similar way in
the past. If you have ask yourself how you would have liked people to
think of you. We have all made mistakes and we’ll all make more –
let’s not condemn each other for them. Show some empathy, some
understanding and leave the judge in the courtroom where they belong.

Enjoy

Take the opportunity today to create a win-win situation with a colleague.

Hiya,

Yesterday’s guide might have seemed difficult for some and easy for
others. For most of us it’s reasonably easy to create a win-win
situation with our friends but now try it with a colleague. OK, I know
that some of your colleagues are your friends. Choose one that’s more
of an aquaintance – just someone you work with, then create that
win-win situation with them. Maybe it’s someone in accounts that is
hassling you for budget figures or the manager of another department
that needs some info from you. Find a way for you both to get what you
want. Bit more tricky. Bit more thought needed possibly. You’ll get a
greater sense of achievment from it though.

Good luck.

Enjoy

Take the opportunity today to create a win-win situation with a friend.

Hiya,

I don’t know about you but there have been occassions in the past
where I’ve dug my heels in over something so that I could win. It
often meant that someone else lost. It might have been an argument or
debate, it may have been a negotiation at work or over the price of a
house or car. Whatever it was, the important thing to me at the time
was to win. We don’t want to look like suckers or losers or someone
that doesn’t know what they’re talking about right? Hmm.

Well there’s another option. Allow the other party to win too.
Compromise so that you both get what you want to some extent. Make it
clear in a debate that you value the other’s opinion or knowledge but
that you simply disagree – they don’t have to be wrong. When
negotiating plan ahead so that you can accept their final offer that
way you get what you expected and they feel like they had the last
say. When buying something of high value try to meet the vendor
halfway – you’ll both feel better for it. Some of this will prove very
difficult and sme will come easily, all I suggest is that you try.

Enjoy

Take the opportunity today to try something you think you can’t do.

Hiya,

How many conversations do you remember where you said that you
couldn’t do something? You know the ones… ‘Oh, I’m terrible at
remembering names…’ or, ‘I’m useless at DIY…’ or, ‘Maths was never
my strong point…’ – you get the picture.

These statements aren’t so much a statement of fact or truth but
rather a statement of what we don’t like to do because we find it
difficult. It takes too much thinking. Way too much effort. You could
say these examples we use are outside of our comfort zone. The thing
is, the only way to push ourselves is to do the thing that we find
difficult. That’s one way in which we can grow. You’ll probably find
that most of those things aren’t so difficult after all – it’s just
that you’ve got into the habit of ‘not’ doing them. Do them, see how
rewarding it is to actually be able to fix that shelf or solve that
problem or improve that memory. That will then spur you on to have a
go at more and more things that previously you thought you couldn’t
do.

In actual fact there’s nothing that you can’t do, only those things
you choose not to do.

Go on – you’ll surprise yourself.

Enjoy

Stu

Take the opportunity today to write your resignation letter! You don’t have to deliver it just yet.

Hiya,

You get a good feeling just reading that don’t you? Imagine in the
nicest way possible you could tell your boss – “Thanks for everything,
but I’ve found something better.” Wow, the relief. The excitement!

OK, some of you reading may already be retired or run your own
business or are unemployed at the moment. If you’re retired and you
don’t have the financial resources to do what you want whenever you
want – imagine that you do. If you run your own business I’m sure you
have your fair share of headaches – imagine that you’re able to employ
someone else to run the day to day side of things freeing up your time
to do what you want whenever you want. If you’re unemployed – imagine
you land a job doing what you love to do and get paid handsomly for
it.

The point here is to get in touch with that feeling of freedom, of
abundance. Once you get in touch with that feeling you start your
subconscious mind running to find a way to make that happen in
reality. A super computer working just for You.
Write the letter, be as kind as you can be with your words – we don’t
want any negative emotions bubbling to the fore here. Make it
tangible, readable and enjoyable.

At the very least it’ll put a smile on your face!

Enjoy

Stu

Take the opportunity today to figure out what your distractions are.

Hiya,

Unless you’re a robot you will, from time to time, here and there, for
one reason or another – get distracted!

We all do.

Now what was I saying? Oh yes… distractions might seem like inocuous
strays from the otherwise mundane. They might seem like harmless
breaks from monotony. They may even be thought of as part of your
creative process. Guess what – they’re all of those things. But, when
you have a lot of them then you can bet your bottom dollar they are
avoidance techniques. Strategies employed to keep you from doing
something that ‘needs’ to be done. They will speed your clock up and
before you know it another week has gone by and ‘that thing’ still
isn’t done. It may just mean the lawn didn’t get trimmed, or the
garage didn’t get cleared out or that rubbish didn’t get taken to the
dump.

Or, it may mean that difficult phone call didn’t happen, or that
important piece of work was not completed, or… you get the idea.
Be aware of what you are being distracted from – and why. Then
remember:- Do what needs to be done, when it needs to be done.

Enjoy

Take the opportunity today to write down 5 things you like about your job.

Hiya,

Most people moan about their job. They wish they could win the lottery
so they can quit. They imagine the relief of being able to clear their
desk and walking out the door knowing they don’t have to come back.

Well, today try to think of just 5 things you ‘like’ about your job.
Find just 5 positive things. Maybe there are some colleagues there
that you like. Maybe the hours are convenient for you. Maybe you enjoy
meeting the customers at least. If you put your mind to it I’m sure
you can find at least 5 – probably many more. Once you do you will
feel differently about your work. It’s another way to get in touch
with gratitude, the single quickest way to change your feelings about
something.

Try it and I bet you’ll have a better day at work. 🙂

Enjoy

Stu
