want-to-be-smarter-develop-these-10-habits

“Formal education will make you a living. Self-education will make you a fortune.”
— Jim Rohn

Some people are born smart, but most people who are smart trained themselves to be that way. If you think you can’t be smart because you weren’t born that way, try developing some daily rituals that will help you to learn and improve.

Being smart isn’t just about book knowledge from sitting in a classroom or attending a seminar. Being smart is also pushing yourself to be better, challenging yourself to do better, and putting in the effort and time to improve. Read more…

“When things go wrong, don’t go with them.”
— Elvis Presley

The one main reason so many people don’t reach their goals, never realize their dreams, don’t get what they want, and don’t get to where they want to go is because they give up too soon. And let’s face it, there are probably one or two or several things we have given up on at one point or another in our lives. The reason we give up isn’t nearly as important as the fact that we just give up.

3 Real Dangerous Habits to Dump Now (365 Days of Spirited Living – DAY 281)

3-real-dangerous-habits-to-dump-now

“All bad habits start slowly and gradually and before you know you have the habit, the habit has you.”
— Zig Ziglar

Too many of us hold on to bad habits even though we know they’re killing us because it just feels like too much hard, difficult, and painful work to let those habits go and replace them with new ones. But if you are to get anywhere in life, you have to be willing to do that necessary hard work. If you hold on to bad habits, you will continue to stay stuck. And “stuckness” is no place to live.

It’s unfair to yourself to justify old habits and negative ways of thinking. The same thing goes for holding on to a toxic relationship or a suffocating job. There are more lessons for you to learn in forming good habits than there are in holding on to bad ones. Read more…

God’s Watching How You Treat People (365 Days of Daring Faith — DAY 281)

gods-watching-how-you-treat-people

Romans 14:12-13a (NLT)
Yes, each of us will give a personal account to God. So let’s stop condemning each other.

Too many people falsely think that the here and now is all there is to life. They live for the moment, never once stopping to think about eternity and the effect it will have on them. Without a healthy fear of God, we tend to think we can treat people any way we want, disagree with others disrespectfully, and be accountable to no one but ourselves. Read more…

Create Your Environment (365 Days of Spirited Living – DAY 186)

Create Your Environment

“Why should we think upon things that are lovely? Because thinking determines life. It is a common habit to blame life upon the environment. Environment modifies life but does not govern life. The soul is stronger than its surroundings.”
— William James

It has been said that we are our environment. Naturally, we become like the people we are around. “Show me your friends and I will show you your future” is a popular quote. We tend to think, believe, and act in the manner our surroundings dictate to us. Our environment has the power to influence us for good or for ill.  Read more…

3 Practical Signs You’re Doing Just Fine (365 Days of Spirited Living – DAY 160)

3 Practical Signs You’re Doing Just Fine

“If you’re going to affirm something, affirm the truth. Then go do something about it.”
— Jim Rohn

When you desire to make something happen, you will find the will to do it. When you find your will, you will begin to put it into action. Your action will become momentum. Your momentum will become progress. Anything ever happens without a desire and a will. Once progress is made, destiny is ultimately realized.  Read more…

3 Extra Signs You’re Doing Just Fine (365 Days of Spirited Living – DAY 139)

3 Extra Signs You’re Doing Just Fine

“Look at everything as though you were seeing it for the first or the last time, then your time on earth will be filled with glory.”
— Betty Smith

We all have a place of balance within us. This is the place where we realize anything is possible. We feel we are at our best in every respect. We all also have a tendency to stray from that place of harmony and peace. External forces can cause us to focus on things that may be popular, but not beneficial to us. When this happens, we must consciously take time to de-stress and allow that place of balance and peace to fall back into our lives. Read more…

Take Care of You (365 Days of Spirited Living – DAY 82)

Take Care of You

“Take care of your body. It’s the only place you have to live in.”
— Jim Rohn

Sometimes, when you’re tired, one of the best things to do is take a break from your daily work schedule and take care of your body. Often, a greater emphasis is placed on nurturing the mind. But less thought and care is paid attention to the body. If you’re physically stressed, overweight, hungry, or sick, you will not perform to your maximum level. Your work, overall attitude, and relationships will suffer significantly. Read more…
