My good peeps, as I always say, when Monday is here, it’s a big deal.  Start the week with an absolute bang and don’t look back.  Today we start back up with talking about how you can start to live intentionally right now, and how it doesn’t have to start with groundbreaking changes.

3. Start watching your words

“We all have a running dialogue in our heads.  What we say to ourselves encourages us and discourages us.  The words we need to embrace are ‘we, can, will, and yes.  What do we need to eliminate?  Me, can’t won’t, no.'”

Next time you have a second, grab a sheet of paper and write down all the negative words that you commonly say or think.  Once you are done writing it down, grab a pair of scissors, cut them out of the page, and throw them away.  Sounds like something you would do in kindergarten, doesn’t it?  Try it.  Watch what happens.

4. Start by making small changes

Mother Teresa was approached one time and asked what her definition of success would be when she started her work in Calcutta.  Her response, “I do not know what success will be.  But if the Missionaries of Charity have brought joy to one unhappy home, made one innocent child from the street kept pure in Jesus, or helped one dying person to die in peace with God, don’t you think it would have been worthwhile?”  It’s amazing to see how big of things Mother Teresa did while starting with just making small changes.  Change can be difficult, but becomes easier when you do a little at a time.

Nathaniel Brandon used to recommend the 5% a day change.  “If I were 5% more responsible today, what would I be able to do?”  This idea will help us to embrace incremental change.  Trying to make a huge change overnight often creates fear, uncertainty, and resistance, because the change appears unachievable.  “The idea of making small changes is less threatening and helps us to overcome our hesitation and procrastination.”  Always trying to find small ways to be better.  Give it a try.  What can you improve by some small percentage?  Any small change that makes you better is worth making.

It’s all about being a little bit better, everyday.  Life is good when you see progress.

Yours truly,
Enjoying the journey, Cram
