Cuppers: Todays Kudos & Encouragement (Mon 8-17-15)


Good Morning Cuppers,

Is Our Glass Half-Full?

Many of us will answer this question without really thinking about it, so let me help.  The glass is made up of 50% Water and 50% Air-and is 100% FULL, all at the same time!  This simple exercise is all about perspective, and learning that when we change the way we look at something, the very thing we are looking at changes. So...

What if we looked at ourselves differently?

We know the critics that live, rent-free, in our head?  Sure, we do! Theirs are the voices of anybody who ever uttered words that got seriously stuck under our skin. They are murmuring things like: "You're not good enough," "you're not smart enough," you're not skinny enough," or "you don't deserve any success in life!"

Blech.

 Time to lose the critics, right?

There are four main principles considered by aeronautical engineers when designing an aircraft: lift, thrust, weight, and drag. Life, and the other people we get to know along the way, is a lot like that: some people lift us up and inspire us; some people motivate and push us to be our best; some of them are like a lead weight around our neck; and some people are just plain drags.

The two things to look at with this metaphor are:

1) What kind of people do I surround myself with? and...

2) What kind of person am I?

Are we a driven, ambitious individual who sometimes feels a little lacking in the motivation department? If so, we're not alone. There are ups and downs over the course of any career, but maintaining our drive through what feels like our job or business' Death Valley is what will cut away the competition and make us the king of the hill. Here is a little secret that will help us fill our tank to the brim ... every single day.

Did you know that YouTube carries a lot more than cat videos?  Set aside a little time in the morning, when we are brushing our teeth or out for our jog (haha), and we can make our cup of positivity and hunger for success runneth over, every single day.  There are millions of inspirational videos, pep talks, spiritual lectures, guided meditations and brilliant business minds available at the click of our mouse.  I am happy to do this for everyone in the Kudos & Encouragement, but believe me when I tell you,  it makes us better people if we go through and do it ourselves.
