Bliss Mission: Change Your Mind, Have a Great Day

Mr Happy Adventure Team with Bohari Adventures...“The future is not some place we are going, but one we are creating. The paths are not to be found, but made. And the activity of making them changes both the maker and their destination.” – John Schaar

Life is full of surprises. In an average day, we all encounter a seemingly endless number of unexpected events can occur that might create stress, worry, and frustration.

But instead of letting these negative emotions take over, what if you were to make a conscious decision to have a great day?

Try these techniques to bring joy to each day:

  1. Use self-suggestion. First thing in the morning, make a conscious decision to have a great day. As you’re brushing your teeth, look yourself in the eye. Tell yourself, “I’m going to have a great day,” and mean it. This is your chance to set yourself up for a fantastic day, whether you’ll be with your family, at work, or hanging out with friends.
  2. Empower yourself. You’re taking control of what might have turned into a negative situation when you decide to allow events to just roll on by and not affect you adversely. Take the bull by the horns and state to yourself what you will and won’t do in a challenging situation.

Own your mood. Refuse to allow someone or something other than yourself to ruin your day.When you do this, you’re saying “no” to negativity. You’re taking a stand. When you’re resolved in this way, your healthy stubbornness will ensure you have a great day.

  1. Recognize what really matters. When you encounter a challenging situation, prompt yourself to see the bigger picture. If one part of a project isn’t going well, identify that you’ve been in similar circumstances before and will most likely be in them again someday. Know, however, that such situations don’t last, and easy times will come again, too.
  2. Remind yourself of the positive. Remember that you still have other things to do today and the trying situation isn’t the only event you’ll encounter. Before the day is out, you might win the lottery or get that promotion you’ve wanted. Or maybe all the traffic lights will be green on your way home. Whether big or small, positive things are likely to happen today.
  3. Consider a challenging event as an adventure. When you look back, you’ll find that many prior situations that you were initially disappointed in turned out to be great opportunities for you. Shift your paradigm from “Oh, this is bad” to “This could be interesting.”
  4. Discover the silver lining. What are the positives about a trying situation? You may feel challenged at first to find something positive about a difficult occurrence. However, with some practice, this will become easier. You’ll eventually be able to identify what the real beauty of the tough event is.

When life gets you down, you always have a choice. You can either let yourself be completely overtaken with the weight of your challenge or decide to have a great day.

Turn negative situations into adventures and seek the silver lining in every challenging event. You have all the power you need within you to make your life as enjoyable as you want it to be!

 

Affirmations & Reflections: The Quest for Excellence

Affirmations & Reflections: The Quest for Excellence

My quest for excellence allows me to give my best.

I am the first to acknowledge the importance of aiming for excellence in everything I do.

I am naturally inclined to give my best in every situation, so excellence is always my goal.

When I am at work, exhaustion and frustration can set in easily. At these times, it would be understandable if I did less than optimum work. But instead, I choose to push through with my best efforts. That is when I achieve excellence.

I know that I can always give one more effort. Each time I push myself, I find myself reaching further ahead than before.

I am amazed by what I can do and how far I can go in my quest for excellence. I believe I have every ounce of drive and zeal within me required to reach my goal.

Today, I commit to living up to my potential by giving my best in any situation. I believe in whole-hearted efforts.

With excellence, the parameters of any goal can be met. So regardless of what needs to be accomplished, to me, excellence is the real goal and that is what I know I can achieve.

Self-Reflection Questions:

1. What rewards have I received from putting put forth my best efforts?
2. Have I ever chosen not to give my best effort? Why? What was the result?
3. How can a quest for excellence help me reach any goal?
