This week from My Life Sherpa

Good Morning

Too many of us let our day control us, rather than us controlling our day.  

A simple google search this morning shows that 46% of Americans check their phone before even getting out of bed each morning, and 80% check their phone within the first 12 minutes of waking up. My guess is if you polled those just 45 and younger, these numbers would be even higher.

If you can’t give yourself 15 minutes in the morning, then I’d consider reevaluating your lifestyle.  A few minutes of meditation and stillness before starting your day can drastically change your result’s. Create a routine, whatever it is.  Time is our most valuable asset.  Investing a few minutes for yourself has big payoffs. It’s money well spent.

After all, the way you see the world will dictate how you receive the world.  Establishing the right pair of glasses to look at your day can increase not just productivity, but also authentic happiness. You can let go of results and enjoy the process.  Optimism replaces pessimism.

Anyone who has ever gone fishing understands the importance of optimism.  It’s a magical thing that any fishermen cannot deny.  How one looks at the end of his rod will largely dictate how many fish he’ll catch. A fisherman who is constantly anticipating that next bite, knowing that at any second they will get a bite, will always catch more fish then the deflated pessimist. Every day has so many opportunities…if you want them.  

Some people want to have a good day, others know they’ll have a good day.  

Which one are you?
