Happy Monday My Friends,
As we begin another month of motivation our message this week will be focused on growth toward being a better person by learning from our experiences.
“Experience is not what happens to a man; it is what a man does with what happens to him.” (Aldous Huxley)
We all know people who have gone through experiences that should have made them stronger, more interesting, more confident, or more empathetic. Yet somehow they’ve passed through the experiences seemingly unphased.
We should see such people as cautionary examples of what happens when we fail to actively engage the world. Our experiences are not going to do anything for us unless we choose to do something with our experiences.
NOTE TO SELF:
I will try to see every experience as a chance to learn about myself and grow into a better person.
All that we are is the result of what we have thought. The mind is everything. What we think we become. (Zen saying)
Today is life-the only life you are sure of. Make the most of today. (Dale Carnegie)
I feel for many of us, when we go through experiences, especially bad ones, we tend to brush it off, when in all actuality we should have considered how and what can we do with this to make it more meaningful. We should try to remember when bad experiences happen why not turn it around into something good. The exact same with good ones, keep them close to your heart and share that same feeling and experience with others. Personal growth on this inside, is reflected in growth on the outside of each of us, by our words and actions. We need to keep our chain of positivity always moving forward toward being the great person we were always meant to be.(SH)
Wishing everyone a wonderful week.
Have a Safe and Fun Fourth of July holiday.
