Get to Know You

roadmap-icons-01-exit-v2-250x250

Working on self is an ongoing process, and your needs will change throughout your lifetime. One of the easiest ways to get to know you is by spending time alone. This period of reflection will help reveal your behaviors, your outlook on life, what makes you happy, and what needs improvement.

It’s challenging to discover who you are searching outside of yourself. When you search for yourself through the eyes of others, it increases the odds of losing your perspective and adopting theirs.

If you are unclear of what you stand for, how can you expect others to know?

The Power of “Re”

The prefix “re” has power in our lives.

It can show up in the form of repeated behaviors or rewriting the script.

Think about something you wish you could redo.

Our experiences in life are often a reflection of our thoughts and are closely associated with the past revisited and repurposed to justify the present moment.

When we refuse to see the err in our ways, it results in the reoccurrence of learned behavior that is resistant to growth and the relinquishing of the ego.

The beauty of life is that it offers daily opportunities to hit the reset button and to recalibrate the energy we are emitting.

Remember that moments of uncertainty allows us to reprogram our thought process, rediscover our life’s purpose, and move forward with renewed energy.

What are some “re” words that you could benefit from in your life?

Smile

Our days may be stressful and complicated at times, but there is always a reason to smile. For when you smile, the world smiles back. Think
about it. A smile is the universal body language understood by many cultures and the messenger of your goodwill.

Someone once said that the world is a looking glass and gives back to
every man the reflection of his face. If this is true, a smile given is a smile received.

Smiling is a critical factor in our lives and is often the most overlooked. While it costs nothing to smile, its value is priceless and produces significant returns. Smiling is also an inexpensive way of improving your physical appearance, helping you reduce stress, elevating your mood, and building self-esteem.

A smile can be reflected in your eyes and projected in your voice. For example, visit a Chick-fil-A drive-thru. Even if you are unable to see the greeter’s facial expression, you can hear the smile in their voice – which makes it a more pleasurable experience.
