Wise Wednesday – Motivational Minute 441

It’s Wise Wednesday!

Today’s Motivational Minute is… Be Accountable to Someone!

accountability8-p1

Never think you can run this race of life on your own.  Have someone you can be accountable to (& vice versa) for your dreams, goals, aspirations and purpose.  It is wise to have someone in your life who can give you wise counsel but who can also say NO when you are getting ready to make a big ole fat DUMB choice.  If you have trust issues, ask God to send you someone you can be accountable to and who you trust, because YES everyone ISN’T trustworthy.  It can be a mentor, a friend, a relative, a spouse.  It doesn’t matter so long as you have someone you can consult with when you are working to accomplish your goals and live your best life.  Having someone to help guide you through tough decisions, some times helps make it easier to make the decision, especially if it something you have to say NO to.

YOUR TURN… on this Wise Wednesday, tell me, do you have an accountability partner?  Who are you accountable to when you have goals and tough decisions you are trying to accomplish?  How do you hold each other accountable?  If not, ask God to give you someone to be accountable to?

Here’s to you living life IN & ON Purpose…

Wise Wednesday – Motivational Minute 436

It’s Wise Wednesday!

Today’s Motivational Minute is… Listen to your Body — Pay Attention to the signs!

996531_568449499868320_514001622_n

Last night I noticed my throat starting to get a little scratchy and my chest was starting to feel sore.  I had been fine earlier in the day but towards the end of the day, I was feeling the after-effects of teaching in a COLD FREEZING classroom for the past two days and being out in the midst of summer, spring, winter and fall – ALL IN ONE DAY.  Yes, it was 37 degrees in the morning, about 70  degrees in the afternoon and then back to about 50 degrees in the evening.  During the day, it colder in the classroom than it was outside.  In the midst of that I was going about my business and my day.  NOT paying attention to the outward signs.

However, I do listen to my body and I know the inward signs of when I feel a cold trying to latch onto me and that was the feeling I felt last night.  Guess what??? I was right!  I woke up this morning groggy, with a slight cough and a slight headache.  Somehow in the hustle and bustle of the last few days I had not been paying attention or remembered that when I’m moving around a lot, I tend to get sick if I’m not careful.

What about you?  Are there times in your life where you haven’t listened to your body.  When you didn’t rest like your body was tell you and you got sick or run down.  Most times than not, your body will speak very loudly and very clearly and tell you what it needs, you just have to be paying attention to the signs.  Use wisdom, don’t run yourself so ragged that you are now down and out for days or weeks at a time because you didn’t listen to your body nor did you pay attention to the signs.

YOUR TURN… on this Wise Wednesday, tell me, do you listen to your body?  Do you pay attention to the signs it and your environment gives you?  When was the last time you didn’t listen to your body nor pay attention to the signs? What happened?  How long did it take you to recover?

Here’s to you living life IN & ON Purpose…

Wise Wednesday – Motivational Minute 426

It’s Wise Wednesday!

Today’s Motivational Minute is… Make Good Decisions (& if you don’t, learn from the bad ones.)

Every decision you make today leads you to wherever you will be tomorrow.  Make a conscious and intentional choice to make good decisions every day or at least make better decisions today than you did yesterday.  Although we would all like to say we make good decisions, sometimes what seemed good at the time wasn’t.  Every decision won’t be a good decision but if you make a promise to yourself to learn from every decision you make (good, bad or indifferent), you are already ahead of the game.  No need in making the same bad choices and learning nothing from it.

YOUR TURN… on this Wise Wednesday, tell me, how do you make decisions?  When decisions you make don’t turn out as well as you thought, how do you turn those negative experiences into opportunities to learn?

Here’s to you living life IN & ON Purpose…

Wise Wednesday – Motivational Minute 421

It’s Wise Wednesday!

Today’s Motivational Minute is…

DON’T SETTLE!

On this Wise Wednesday, be mindful that sometimes good ideas or good opportunities are not what God has in store for us. He wants you to have the best. Everything that comes your way will not always be bad.  There may come a time when you will have to walk away from what seems like a really good opportunity. And it is, but it’s not the best opportunity for you.

Sometimes your great could be clouded by a ‘good’ distraction, and then your best could be clouded by a ‘great’ opportunity or distraction. Ask God to give you the wisdom to know the difference. Sometimes we get distracted by how good or great things ‘appear to be,’  forgetting that we are still settling because they aren’t the best. Don’t Settle!

YOUR TURN… on this Wise Wednesday, tell me, have you ever been offered or given the opportunity to take advantage of something really good only to find that after turning it down there was something even better waiting for you?

Share your thoughts in the comments section. I would love to hear from you and so would our followers. There may be someone who just might be blessed by what you share!

Wise Wednesday – Motivational Minute 411

 

It’s Wise Wednesday!

Today’s Motivational Minute is..

LISTEN TO YOUR BODY!

On this Wise Wednesday, my message to you is to listen to your body when it gets weak or tired. Now I am not talking about quitting prematurely but really listening to the signs your body gives when you might be getting sick or overdoing it.  Even though tomorrow is not promised you might be able to get another day but you most certainly can’t get another body.  Be wise in how you take care of it.  I started out this morning with a different post but as I have ferociously battled my allergies and sinuses today, I just couldn’t pull myself together to get this post out earlier.  I didn’t listen to my body.  So as I close the day and go rest my mind and my body, I wanted to make sure you have this particular motivational minute knowing that it’s okay to rest and take care of YOU!

YOUR TURN… on this Wise Wednesday, tell me if there was a time your body was telling you to take some time to rest but you ignore the clues, thus getting sick from pushing yourself too far.  Has your body been speaking to you lately telling you, that you are going too far? If so, will you listen?

Share your thoughts in the comments section. I would love to hear from you. There may be someone who just might be blessed by what you share!

Wise Wednesday – Motivational Minute 406

 

It’s Wise Wednesday!

Today’s Motivational Minute is..

SEEK WISE COUNSEL!

On this Wise Wednesday, make sure you are connecting with the right people who can give you the right information.  Nothing like sharing something with something, looking to gain insight, and getting nothing in return.  When you are at a strategic place in your life, you have to know and understand WHO you have in your circle and WHO is able to give you wise counsel.  These people understand where you are going and have the knowledge, expertise, or spiritual insight to help you get there.  Now keep in mind that you can’t share everything with everyone, but you should have one or two people you can go to outside of seeking God for direction, who can give you the wise counsel needed to keep you on track or get you back on track.

YOUR TURN… on this Wise Wednesday, tell me … have you shared something with someone only to walk away from the conversation thinking you were no better off than before it began?  Do you have a wise counsel in your circle of influence?  How have they been helpful in making strategic decisions in your life?

Share your thoughts in the comments section. I would love to hear from you. There may be someone who just might be blessed by what you share!

Wise Wednesday – Motivational Minute 401

 

It’s Wise Wednesday!

Today’s Motivational Minute is …

Get your Emotions under control!

On this Wise Wednesday, remember that it is unwise to make decisions in the heat of the moment or when your emotions are out of control.  Knowing that you can’t control everything that happens around you or to you, you must know that you can control how you respond no matter how devastating the circumstance.  When things come into your life to shake you, it’s for a purpose.  Use wisdom and remember to walk away from the situation, if you can, and take a few deep breaths so you can make a sound decision.  Nothing like making an emotional decision and have to deal with the permanent results. Remember it only takes a quick second to make a decision, so when all you have that very moment, be wise in how you make decisions.

YOUR TURN… on this Wise Wednesday, tell me … When have you made a permanent decision on temporary feelings?  Have you gotten so caught up in the heat of the moment and soooooo caught up in your emotions that you made a decision may have felt good now but was not so good later.  How did you deal with the final result?  What would you have done differently? 

Share your thoughts in the comments section. I would love to hear from you. There may be someone who just might be blessed by what you share!

Wise Wednesday – Motivational Minute 394

20130522-085240.jpg

It’s Wise Wednesday!

Today’s Motivational Minute is …

Use what you know!

It is said that wisdom is the application of knowledge. It’s not what you know but how you use what you know. Many of us get great information but never transition to application. What’s the use in having all of this great knowledge if you won’t put it to use? Have you thought about how you can use your own personal experiences to help someone else or even yourself? Stop looking for more information and more knowledge, and just use what you have.

YOUR TURN… on this Wise Wednesday, tell me this, are you sitting on a wealth of knowledge and experience that you have yet to use? Do you keep looking for new information, new knowledge and new experiences but never actually put anything you learn to use? How come?

Share your thoughts in the comments section. I would love to hear from you. There may be someone who just might be blessed by what you share!

Wise Wednesday – Motivational Minute 389

It’s Wise Wednesday!

Today’s Motivational Minute is …

BE CAREFUL who you share your dreams and aspirations with!

Use wisdom with whom you share your inner most desires.  The very people who say they are for you may be against you.  Those we call ‘haters’ or wolves in sheep’s clothing.  Then there are some who to no fault of their own try to talk you out of ‘BIG’ because they are caught in ‘small.’   They actually love you, want the best for you and may even share concern for you but because they aren’t apart of your future unintentionally try to hinder you from pursuing the purpose of God because they have no clue they will stay in your past.

Be mindful

&

Use wisdom about what you share and when you share it.

Everything God gives you isn’t meant to be shared at the time the deposit is made.

YOUR TURN… on this Wise Wednesday, tell me, have there been times that you shared something out of sheer excitement with someone who totally didn’t get the vision and or idea that God had given you?  Was the reaction out of sheer ignorance or did you sense a little bit of ‘haterade’ in the atmosphere?  How did you handle it?  Have you since limited what you share with this person or these people? 

Share your thoughts in the comments section. I would love to hear from you. There may be someone who just might be blessed by what you share!

It’s Wise Wednesday!

Today’s Motivational Minute is …

Learn from your mistakes. It’s okay to make mistakes, however don’t keep making the same mistakes over and over again. Use wisdom and pay attention to lesson in every mistake you make. There is always something to learn. If you miss the lesson you might end up right back where you started. It’s time for you to stop making excuses and start taking responsibility for the things in your life that you could have avoided but chose not to.

YOUR TURN… on this Wise Wednesday, are there some mistakes that feel you keep making that you need to learn from? Take some time to revisit the incident or the issue and them write down what you were supposed to learn from it.
