Because you can...

There is always a reason not to do something.  But remember, we only need one reason to do something.  What if our default reason that we chose to do something was because we get to?!
Works for me.  Every time.  Without fail!

I have finally learned to walk ten minutes, then run, walk, run, walk, run, walk etc...
Then cool down five to ten minutes at the end.

Here's a thought for you.  If some how you knew that success at anything was guaranteed, stress would simply not exist.  Try this on for size, accept the fact that you already achieved the income goal, the weight goal, the relationship goal and notice at that moment the absolute peace that you feel almost instantaneously!

Of course the other idea is that you continue to live in a mental state where none of your goals are already achieved. Let me know how that works for you!

Just remember, if you keep doing what you've been doing, you WILL keep getting what you've been getting.

Sunset over the Mississippi

The more rain we get here it seems the more bugs we get.

Translation - tonight's short 11 mile mountain bike ride I was going through clouds of bugs at times!

But the sunset made it worth it.

Another day at the office...

I now live the American dream of working from home.

Most of my work takes place on the phone as I have found a company that offers a coffee that is the best I have ever had in my life.   In short, I love this stuff.  So much that it is what I do full time now.  I am a coffee distributor.  The best part is that I get to work from home.  I already have customers in seven states in the U.S. and would love to expand internationally.  It is only a matter of time anyway.

This evening as I was following up with some of my contacts via phone in the back yard a young robin came along and decided to hang out with me!

Life can't get much better than this.  My kids are playing in the back yard and my office is at home.  

If anyone who reads this would like a sample of this coffee, e-mail me and I will gladly send you a sample.  As I was, you may be shocked at how good this is.

Contact me via e-mail if interested at jeffreyjmiller1970@yahoo.com

Happy Father's Day

Perfect day and perfect scenery for this morning's 3.4 mile run with my yellow lab.

Since it is father's day, today I pass on to you the greatest thought my father passed on to me growing up...

"No matter how bad we think we have it, someone has it way worse"

Remember that and keep life in perspective, life is always what we make it.

Why we must be "reminded"

Life offers us countless "reminders" that inspire us, motivate us and sometimes even stir our soul.  Then, we forget!  Life happens.  

Arguably one of the greatest "reminders" we will be reminded of in life is the simple fact that if we "remind" ourself any thought or idea enough times, it becomes automatic.

More importantly, until we remind ourselves anything so many times that it does become automatic, the thought or idea will be completely random.  

In short, anything worthy enough should be placed somewhere that you are reminded again and again until it is so automatic , it becomes part of who you are, part of your identity.  

If not now, when?

After all, you ARE capable of way more than you can comprehend.

Raw motivation...

I challenge you to...

Work today as if you were paid $100,000,000 for what you do...

Eat today as if you were paid $100,000,000 to eat clean...

If you actually do this, notice how you feel.  Notice the clarity.
You had it all along.  You just had to channel it...

A quick challenge for TODAY...

Just for TODAY, I challenge anyone who is reading this, where ever you are in the world, where ever you are in your life, raise your STANDARDS.  

Raise your standards as to what you will eat and drink today.

Raise your standards as to what you will do with your time today.

For a little help, simply remind yourself that if you keep doing what you have been doing, you will keep getting what you have been getting.

If that doesn't help, then simply remind yourself that TODAY is all you ever have, once it is gone, it is gone forever, you never get it back.

La vida siempre es como to la hagas
