Have a great day my friend!

Be fast (Purim theme)

Do you know the secret of how to attain happiness?

Purim, the time of simcha (joy) is approaching.

Happiness is not just about being happy with material things like money, a new car, or a house.

The secret to happiness lies within you.

Be happy with your lot.

“Who is rich? One who is happy with his lot. ” –Ethics of the Fathers 4.1

❕

Accept who you are.

❕

Accept where you are.

❕

Accept what you are.

❕

Accept what you do.

❕

Accept what you have. 

❕

Accept where you come from, where you have been.

Accept everything about you, including your past, your childhood and your mistakes! 

Let go of the guilt and shame of the past.

Guilt only causes suffering for you and others around you.

Looking back, you will realize that your past was bashert (predestined) for you.

The more you let go of the guilt, the less your past will bother you.

Bring on the simcha!

L’Chaim!

BS yourself

I’m sure you heard this before.

“BS yourself to functionality. Lie, cheat and steal yourself to positivity!” — Lou Landau

When you find yourself in a difficult situation, and it does not affect you in a negative way, that in itself is already a positive reinforcement. 

Everyday look for ways to grow in a positive way.

Yes. We DO allow that.

BS yourself to functionality can also mean that it is real.

In some situations when it just doesn’t ‘feel positive’, then you tell yourself, “I’m going to allow it”!

Your modus operandi should be:

I gotta stay positive!

I want to stay positive!

It’s good for me to stay positive!

When negative thoughts enter your mind and says, “Hey, you gotta be realistic..”. 

Then you BS yourself and tell yourself, “Nah, not today. Today I am not realistic…”

Despite everything, keep on walking ‘blindly’ and keep positive!

You’re doing great, my friend. Keep at it!

Holding people accountable

The other day I made a run for it.

It was really pouring out there. I had to get from my home to my car, and got sopping wet while doing it. 

And, like I always tell you my friend. I voiced my my oft-repeated phrase out loud. 

“I do not let the weather affect me negatively!”

I just had to say it to myself, there in the car, and really internalize it. 

Yes, I was uncomfortable.

True, I was wet.

But, it is what it is and I can’t do anything about it!

“Weather isn’t good or bad, it is your attitude that needs to change!” 

Life is full of challenges. Our job is to work on our middos (character traits) and have a positive attitude towards life. 

At least if we can’t reach the positive attitude, we should at least aim for neutral.

As long as it is not negative. 

Negativity only causes more problems and everything goes downhill. 

Negative thoughts make it seem that the game of “life” is rigged. 

We constantly need to remind ourselves:
Stay positive.
Have fun.
Do good.

Be a good person. A good spouse. A good parent.

Remember, “this, too, shall pass”.

Everything passes. The good, the bad and the ugly. 

Life is fleeting and we need to hold onto the good.
But, we should remember, that the bad will pass too!

Book 6. Day 9: Outstanding!

If a receptionist can’t tell a visitor what the
organization does and why it does it, that’s a PROBLEM…

If the supermarket cashier pushes products out, of fear rather than
a desire to serve, that’s a PROBLEM…

So what’s your WHY?

The motor of learning

Are you looking for new techniques to accomplish your goals?

You don’t always have to look for the new.

Repeat the ABCs you already know. Repeat the basics.

And do it every day.

Repeat. Repeat. Repeat. 

Just think.

What do I need to do to get to my goal and to move towards a better self?

What is the ONE thing that — carved in stone — I MUST do every day?!

The answer to your question should be THE ONE THING that will make a huge impact.

It will have a cascading effect. All started by your one action. 

Start your morning with the win!

Mel Robbins says, the first things to “just rolling out of bed”!

  1. Never hit the snooze button.
  2. Just launch yourself out of bed at the count of 5-4-3-2-1!

Try it. 

Without thinking. Don’t let your mind kick in (and make you think you’re still tired).

Just do it!

All the rest of your tasks will follow.

Start your day mindlessly. 

Whether you like it or not….

You might even start liking it. Who knows?!

But. Until then. Do it mindlessly. 

What is that ONE THING that will have the momentum and cascading effect on your 2021 goal?
Let’s hear it in the comments!

“Why do we exist?”

In an outstanding organization, the mission is always top of mind.

MMM Preparation with pushups

I’m preparing for our weekly motivation meeting. 

I was debating if I should grab another coffee or catnap before starting the meeting. 

But. No! 

I needed to get my heart pumping and adrenaline rushing. 

I got down on all fours and did my daily 50 push-ups. (As I once mentioned, I heard this from Vishen Lakiani that he does the amount of push-ups to match his age. I have been doing it twice daily since then.) 

Watching me do this, one loan officer exclaimed, “Wow! I can’t even do five push-ups!”

I told him, “Yeah, when I started I couldn’t either do 5. I couldn’t even do one!”

Start with half. Then a whole. Then push yourself further and do one push-up daily.

Suddenly, you can do 2 push-ups daily. Then 3 and 10 and 15.

Continue building strength. 

Then you do 25 per day and looking back, you can’t believe it yourself!

If you did it sometimes, you can do it all the time!

When you do something consistently you create a place for the momentum to hold onto, and fill your cup with blessings.

Start with nothing. Keep on adding small consistent movements.

Then suddenly you find you can move mountains. 

L’chaim!

(Looking back at this video now, I see that I need to improve my push-ups and do it a little fuller. And did you notice that I’m starting to go bald?!)
