“Self discovery is the stepping stone to an INPowering life. Seek, and you will find.”
Thoughts are things
Our thoughts shape our actions. We can program ourselves for INPowerment when we select what we will think about and how we will think about living our lives.
I hope these sayings and my audio commentary about them will help you become more INPowered at home, at work, and in your community.
Rest better with a thankful heart. count my blessings no matter my immediate circumstances, and right now for me that’s in the throes of a health pandemic and economic downturn. Yet, I am thankful simply to draw a breath and to rest in the love of my family and friends.
Let’s get real. The presumption is that once we get real about a situation, that gives us a framework for maintaining it or changing it.
We choose our destiny. Every decision—without exception—every decision has a consequence, no matter how much or how little time we spend contemplating it before making a choice.
Brave is thinking for yourself. Some of my best ideas are the ones that come third, fourth, and fifth generation from the original idea because someone challenged me to stop and think further, or because they embellished my idea with some innovative thoughts of their own.
There is no physical reason why anyone should become set in their ways. The brain is pliable and regenerative. Everyone can think young.
Our culture seems to reward the illusion of self-improvement by emphasizing the cosmetic over the authentic. Lasting change and authentic beauty begins on the inside.
Don’t let fear turn into hate. Some people misuse our fear response. They tell us we should be afraid of certain groups. They are the enemy. It’s us versus them. We should hate them.
Know what moves you. To know what moves you is a way of saying, “what do you care enough about that would cause you to make the smallest change or to take minimum action?”
Find yourself a labor of love. A labor of love is not a duty, not a chore, not an obligation. A labor or love is any act to which you devote your creative energy.
WE live in a world where it is time for radical imagination in how we can come together and let love abound. Radical imagination stirs the spirit and feeds the soul and unleashes our creative energy.
Keep your promises. If you are unclear about what you will or will not do, others will assume that you will live up to their expectation of you even though you know nothing about what they expect.
The INPowered often realize that in order to make things better, someone will have to step out on a new path for the first time, and they are willing to be that trailblazer.
