LGIM: Open Sesame

Need a little Magic?  Read today’s blog and learn how your words are all the magic you need.

You may be familiar with the words “Open Sesame” and how this phrase has the magical power to open pathways to great treasures.


What we need to understand is that all words have power and magic to them – some can open doors and others can close them tight.


The words we use daily pave the way for where we are headed; some are positive and can lead us to our own “treasures”.  But if our words are negative, they can hold us back or even block us from the greatness that lies in front of us.


This week, pay attention to your words.  Think about the path you want to create for yourself in both life and business.  Make sure your words are going to open doors and lead you to your own magic and treasures. You have the key inside of you to open up a world of greatness and beauty.

LGIM: Lightening Strikes

I can be difficult to focus and concentrate during a thunderstorm.  The rain hitting the window, the clash of the lightening – it can all be very loud and disturbing.

The same happens when the storm we are dealing with is life and our emotions.  How we are feeling and how we are thinking great effects the focus we have.

There is a lot going on right now, and for some it could seem like the storm may never pass…but it will.  In the meantime, your life and business need your FULL attention.  you need to direct your energy to the things that need your focus:

Your health

Your business

Your relationships

This week, use your mornings to get you grounded and ready for the day.  Communicate your plan and schedule with those around you so they can support you. Take time for YOU each day – even if only a few minutes.  All of these will help you regain and maintain your focus.

You see the storm will end and when it does you want to be in a place where you can truly enjoy it.

Let’s Go Tubing

Have you ever gone snow tubing?  It can be so much fun…once you get going that is.


The walk to the top of the hill is not so fun.  It can be long and hard as you push your way through the deep snow carrying your tube.  By the time you get to the top of the hill you can feel drained and exhausted.


But then you plop onto you tube and go flying down the hill;  it is so exhilarating that you forget about all the effort it took to get to the top of the hill.


Right now, you may be climbing a hill toward a goal.  And you may feel drained and even beginning to question if you should continue.  Don’t give up!  Remember that getting there, although challenging, is worth it.  Soon you will be at the top of the hill to success and ready to fly and feel the momentum and exhilaration.


This week – stay focused on the journey.  Know that with each step, no matter how hard, you will get there, and it will all be worth it.

LGIM: By a Nose

In a horse race, when the horse “wins by a nose” it still wins, and that win is celebrated.


In life, however, we don’t give ourselves that grace and triumph.  We accomplish great things everyday but often fail to notice those “wins” because they are not as significant as we feel they should be. 


This week focus on your wins. No matter how small they may seem.  At the end of each day ask: 
What DID I accomplish?

Who did I help ? 

What did I learn? 

How did I grow? 


This week celebrate the little wins. It doesn’t matter if you win by a nose – you can still “win” each day!

LGIM: Need Air?

While in my car, I received the notice that my tires were low on pressure and needed air.

After putting air in the tires ( ok it wan my son and not me that did it…),  It’s amazing how just adding a little air can help the car run smoother and work at a more optimal level 
I sometimes wish we have a light that would turn on in our personal lives and business to let us know when we need something to help us operate at a better level. Something that reminds us : 
Take a day off

It’s time for a break

 Don’t forget to eat 

Be present 


This week don’t run on flat tires.  Make sure you are filling yourself us with the right stuff so you can move through your days smoothly and Operate at a higher level 

Sometimes a little air in your tires/ life is all you need to get the  boost that will allow you to operate the way you were created to.

LGIM: Candlelight

When you light a candle, you can use the flame to light many other candles.  That one candle does not lose its light by helping other candles shine.

We need to be the same.

We all have the power to help others grow, succeed and shine AND we can do that without diminishing our own light.

This week find someone who you can help shine.  Know that when you help them ii only make you shine even brighter!

LGIM: Greatness in the Unexpected

If you were to board a plane for an island get away you would expect to land at that destination. What if however you landed someplace different?  


At first you would be angry, confused, disappointed and sad.  But eventually you would gain acceptance and adapt to where you are.

 
This happens in life too…. sometimes we have a plan for the year, a set of expectation and set out to live based on the destination we expect.  But life can surprise us and send us to a new destination. (2020 comes to mind 🤔) 


When our plans get changed it is perfectly acceptable to feel angry, frustrated and sad.  But eventually we must accept the new reality and move forward and adapt. 


Greatness comes in many forms and there is no “perfect” road map. Believe you are where you need to be and learn to evolve to your new surroundings.

This life may look different – but never underestimate the power of your ability to adapt and evolve.  You may just find greatness in the unexpected

LGIM: What do you GET to do?

What have you already done today? I want you to think about all the things you had to do just to get to this point in your day…

for me…

I had to get up and out of bed

I had to work out

I HAD to have coffee

I had to shower and get dressed

I had to make my bed

I had to look over my schedule and prepare for the day.

We all have to do a lot of things even before the day gets started. But now let’s change it…

instead of thinking about what you had to do, lets change it to what you got to do…

I got to wake up

I got to work out

I got to have coffee

I got to make my bed

and I got to look over my schedule and prepare for the busy day ahead.

You see – we are pretty lucky. we GET to do so many things others are not so lucky to do each day. When we choose to focus on the good in our lives that is what we will find more of.

This week, focus on the little things you GET to do because those little things are pretty special and need to be appreciated.
