Acting on Impulse

Monday, May 14th, 2012

Have you ever gone shopping for a couple of things and come home with a couple of bags?

Sometimes making a quick/impulsive decision can turn out bad like investing large sums of money or going to the grocery store when you’re hungry. Other times acting on an impulse can be positive.

When it gets right down to it, an impulse is an urge to do something. It’s a suggestion from your subconscious that surfaces in your conscious mind and should be considered. Carrying impulses into action can be good or the consequences can be disastrous. So how do you decide whether or not to act on an impulse?

Ask yourself if the impulse is in harmony with who you are. If it’s not, steer clear. If you answer yes, you’re better off taking the leap rather than killing a potentially wonderful opportunity.

If you can’t immediately take action set a goal and create a clear mental picture of the result you want to bring about. Keep that picture in the forefront on a daily basis. With determination you will see positive change emerge and continue to move you toward your desired result.

 

 

 

Thinking In a New Year

Sunday, January 1st, 2012

Now comes the resolutions to make:

good decisions

healthier eating choices

lose weight

and the list goes on…

What about the resolution to be kinder to you? Sometimes we concentrate very hard on what we need to do to meet the needs of others and view our own needs as a distant second.

Our needs are important. Without meeting them we will not effectively meet the challenges before us in terms of family friends work and community.

Take time for you.

Eat well, get the rest you need, and reflect.

Life is busy and at times confusing. Choices and opportunities are presented to us on a daily basis. It is up to us to pay attention to what is put in front of us and the only way we will do that is if we pay attention to what we think.

Sometimes we push our thoughts down to a level where we barely recognize them as our own. They become jumbled up with thoughts of friends, family, co-workers, employers and others.

Differentiate between what you think and what others think. Examine and reflect.

Above all don’t discount how you feel and what you think throughout your daily life.
