This guy’s little 6-year old started the day with “You know what would be great?” And he proceeded to tell everyone how great it would be to all pile into the car and go to breakfast before school and work.
Before you knew it, this little guy had everyone practically tasting the pancakes… And the parents, who previously wouldn’t have given it even the most remote consideration to such an idea on a school or work morning pretty soon had the kids in the car. Off they went for a fun breakfast.
Now, that particular essay has absolutely nothing to do with MY essay today. But, it inspired it. It inspired it by having me ask myself, “You know what would be great??”
Then, I thought of the cool things that would be great.
Along came a few more ideas… and then some more.
Well, one thing led to another, and I traced some “You know what would be great” ideas back to a different source. That of taking action.
So once again, I find myself on this topic! I hope you’ll join me over at You Know What Would Be Great? Another Essay On Taking Action here at the Entrepreneurial Strategies section of the site.
Now, you do not have to be an entrepreneur to get something out of this. I think that the words are true for any situation.
I hope you enjoy my latest thoughts – and please add your own when you’re done reading!
After having a pretty scary incident happen recently (or at least since the time I wrote this piece), I decided that I could use my scary incident to add some extremely important information to our “Healthy Living Tips” section of the website.
First off, let me say that this was just “scary” and not “life-threatening” – or at least it was caught before it could possibly turn into a life-threatening situation. And, when I experienced it, I realized in a nano-second how very much I want to live! 🙂
Ok. It’s honestly not THAT dramatic. What this is REALLY about is the dangers of sitting on one’s tuckus in front of a computer screen all day (or sitting on one’s bottom all day for ANY reason). (more…)
Boy, when I get inspired, I REALLY get inspired! People who know me are well aware of how fond I am of the spirituality behind the whole “As a man thinketh” idea. I absolutely love it!
Well, I came across a wonderful blog entry today (thanks to my friend David S. on Facebook in our “Positive Imperative” group). The article he brought to my attention was about “neuroplasticity” and our brain’s ability to create new pathways when others have been damaged. The article goes on to discuss the importance of making darned sure that our words are consistently positive.
It takes James Allen’s famous work “As a Man Thinketh” to a different level in light of more recent scientific discoveries than were likely known in Mr. Allen’s time. Of course, most of us have heard “Our thoughts become our words…our words become our actions…” etc.
In an article I just posted here at the site, I have given you the link to the article that David pointed out, and also offered a thought on how to encourage consistent practice in what the author (Barrie Davenport) recommends.
The topic is an important one, and I hope my readers will take it to heart. Please continue on to the page “As a Man Thinketh…With a Twist – the Power of the Spoken Word.” We all need to be vigilant not only about the thoughts we think, but what we say out loud.
