Some Concrete Steps to Make Today Awesome
In my last post, I lauded Piers Morgan for showing up in his interview of Oprah and doing a great job. The question is how can we do that, show up in our own lives? Well here are some concrete steps that you can use to show up and make your day amazing.
1. Remember that even when you don’t know it, you’re shaping your experience of life. So take charge and commit to making the rest of the day the best it could possibly be.
2. Now, breathe, and get out of your head and into the present moment. How? Imagine your energy moving out of your head, where it’s likely been running riot, and into your body, your core.
3. Next, smile, even if you don’t want to. Now let your heart smile.
4. Finally, pick the three things that need to get done that would most impact your life. Then one by one, take the first tiny step toward getting them done. Tomorrow you can take the next step. But at least get things in motion. Make those calls that you need to make, especially the ones you’ve been avoiding. Just take action!
And that’s it. Already you’re going to be feeling quite good about yourself, and the day is suddenly awesome.
