Stop Saying No: Tips for Overcoming your Monster

To do list on a smartphoneWe get used to saying no. “No, I can’t have this.” “No that can’t be done.” “No that won’t happen.” Sometimes we get so used to saying it, that it starts to creep into our dreams, hopes, and opportunities to grow.

This is your inner monster. The beast inside of you that has nothing better to do than second-guess your every move. And this beast likes rewards, feed it money, food, alcohol, the end of the workday. It’s happy to eat that up, and be quiet for a while.

This entire transition, of course, is the result of the highest form of no-limit, positive thinking available, yet, the cautious may construe this as erratic behavior.

Are You a Scanner? By Barbara Sher

Barbara Sher“I can never stick to anything.”

“I know I should focus on one thing, but which one?”

4 Strategies for Staying Motivated

Every accomplishment begins with a decision to try quoteWhat does it mean to be motivated? Does it mean that I will feel super enthusiastic about a Goal? Or does it mean that I finally have a vision on where I want to go, and I get to share it with my fellow man?
