10 Tips To A Stellar Character

What You Choose To Do Every Day Really Matters

What You Choose To Do Every Day Matters

1.)is it you?-who you are matters, & it shows. take a good look at who you are when no one is watching-it’s enlightening.(do you need an audience to remind you to pick up your dog’s poop?)

2.)courage of conviction– do you do as you say? do you walk the walk? have you been willing to pay the price? there is always a gift by the door when building character,albeit the costs.

3.)joy travels-my motto is-bring joy, share joy, take joy with you. it works on so many levels! if you are really in a slump, work your way through it with sports,pets,meditation,nature, but don’t share, unless you truly need help. it is contagious & becomes the new reality.

4.)can i try that?- if you don’t bother to read that book, try that appetizer, start that conversation,or question that concept-you will never be who you could be.

5.)happy when useful-i make it a point to follow through on everything i possibly can. holding myself accountable whenever necessary.being useful is the best confidence builder i know of, & always adds something lovely to the world around me.

6.)but, it’s true-i have often been told not to tell all, )i talk a lot!),& have found that the truth always serves me most cases, is the usually the right & just response, even though it is not always the easiest way to go.

7.)i can take it-my mantra to prepare for taking a hit when i take a chance.because i know if i shut down, i will miss so much of life’s pleasures. i know i have conquered some fears, & almost always gotten up to try again.

8.)kindred spirits-i seek, protect & indulge those who share similar values, & & have paid the price, or reaped the rewards for doing so. it’s a loyal community whose supportive foundation is needed now more than ever.

9.)i did it!-I have no regret wrinkles, because I always took the shot, kissed the stranger, went to work in another industry, moved to another country,etc…the wrinkles i do have are my proof of a life well-lived & enjoyed.

10.)dream on-without dreams, future plans, cool projects, we wither into routine, & cease using everything we have at our disposal to create a rich & rewarding life. be realistic, but keep a list of your dreams, & revisit,visualize & work toward them as often as possible.

each one of these concepts has contributed to my living a fuller life, & staying relatively sane,courageous & happy along the way!
