3 Tips to Turn You Around and Get You Going Again.

This is my view this morning, up in the hills of Berkeley, California. I am the first one up, even here, and it is so very quiet and still. It’s balmy, chilly, and feels like I am in a treehouse with the birds. My family is on our first week of Summer vacation, visiting dear friends. There is truly nothing better and I just feel blessed and grateful to be here and to have time with our friends. Where are you this morning? What are 5 things you’re grateful for this morning?

Here are mine:

  1. I am almost completely over the cold I came down with after last week’s travel.
  2. Being here, with our friends.
  3. Being able to spend quality time with my husband and daughter this week.
  4. These views and the sunsets we have been witness to these last few nights.
  5. This amazing cup of Peet’s coffee.

This exercise is an easy way to train your mind to see the positive and live the life you deserve to live. Just find 5 things each morning that you are grateful for. Be specific.

Now, pick three words to describe yourself or your best self. This is an exercise I learned recently from Brendon Burchard. Go ahead. Choose three words. For example, these are mine: present, loving, strong. Three more that I love: real, inspiring, dynamic. This next part takes a bit more focus: several times throughout your day, run those three words through what Brendon calls your “consciousness dashboard.” So, for example, I would ask myself, “How present am I? How loving am I? How strong am IThis will keep your goals at the forefront of your mind and will keep you moving in the right direction.

At the end of your day, maybe just before closing your eyes to sleep, ask yourself these three questions:

  1. Did I live?
  2. Did I love?
  3. Did I matter?

These three exercises, one in the morning, one throughout the day, and one just before bed, will help to keep you very clear about your life, where you are now, and where you are going. Will you do it with me for one week? I’d love it if you would join me and tell me about it in the comments below, on Facebook, or via email.
