Happy Monday everyone. I hope each of you had a great weekend and I hope each of you are starting to see improvement in your life with the principles and self-discipline you are practicing. Remember to stick to the plan. Gigantic changes don’t start to happen over night, they take time. Lots of it. Keep churning those legs. The success will come. Today, we continue to talk about the questions we ask ourselves during self-reflection. The first question was “what is your biggest asset?”
- What is Your Biggest Liability? If we have unrealistic expectations in life, we will suffer many shortcomings, no matter how much we accomplish. By knowing your shortcomings, it will help you temper your expectations for yourself and for others. Modifying your expectations will help you to have a much better chance to stick on course. Bottom line is to know your weaknesses and it is ok to have them. There is no sense in trying to make yourself or other people think you are perfect.
- What is My Highest High? This goes back to knowing your purpose. My highest high is my family. If things aren’t in order at home, my life becomes a cluster. If I am not fulfilling my role as a dad and a husband to the greatest capacity, nothing else matters. But when I am, everything else seems to flow smoothly and fall into place.
- What is My Most Worthwhile Emotion? Maxwell, says that there is not a more worthwhile emotion than love.
We live at our best when we love what we do, love our friends, love our family, and even our enemies.
Love is a choice and it often requires effort. As you are engaging in your self-reflection, make sure you are taking time to ponder how much love you have in your life. Love for yourself, and love for others. Without love, the world DOES NOT go round. Without love, your world WILL NOT go round either.
- What is My Least Worthwhile Emotion? I thought this part was interesting. Where love is the foundation of all, self-pity is the destroyer. “Pity is one of the most noble emotions available to human beings; self-pity is possibly the most ignoble.” Self-pity is an incapacity, a crippling emotional disease that severely distorts our perception of reality. Avoid self-pity like the plague. It CANNOT help you. In fact, it will ALWAYS harm you! During self-reflection, find ways and make plans to completely eliminate it from your life.
As I finish out today’s blog, I just wanted to express my love for each person that it on here. As I have said a million times, life is about progress. Working hard to get a little better every single day. I know every one on this chain busts their ass to get better. No on on this chain is perfect. Except for maybe my mother. But each of you fight like hell every day to be the creators of the world instead of the complainers. And I love that! I absolutely love surrounding myself with each of you! Keep fighting the fight and you will always, in the end, end up on top!
Super thankful, Cram
