Happy Friday! I hope you had a great week. On Monday I talked about mindset and how important your state of mind is because it is the lens through which you view reality! Starting with an optimistic perspective, no matter what your situation, provides your brain the best environment to impact the world around you in a more productive way.
So, if you have been working on being positive on the “inside” your next step is to ask yourself, “how do I let my light shine on the outside?” Do you hide it under a bushel basket, or do you let it show and have an impact on those in the world around you? Following is a quote for you to think about:
“What you leave behind is not what is engraved in stone monuments, but what is woven into the lives of others” – Pericles
You make an impact; you make a difference on those around you. You impact the world. Ask yourself, “what is the imprint that I am making as I travel through my life?” Is it what you want it to be? If “yes” is your answer, great; keep it up! If not, no worries. The beautiful thing about life is that each second of each day you are given another chance to show up different; make an impact; and be who you were meant to be.
Take control of YOU! Send rays of light out into the world. This does not have to be hard. It can be a smile, a kind word, making eye contact with someone, holding open a door, a thank you…the common courtesies of being human. Infuse hope, joy, caring and kindness into the souls of others. It really does make a difference. You really do make a difference.
Today, this weekend, every day; be the best YOU that YOU can be. Rise above negativity and noise and be a beacon of light for yourself and others. You own your brand. You own your legacy. You own the way you show up.
Have a GREAT day and a GREAT weekend!
