I take compliments in stride

 It is wonderful to hear others say nice things about me, but I avoid feeling overwhelmed. I take compliments in stride. This attitude prevents me from becoming too self-centered.


When someone tells me that I am beautiful, I express thanks for the kind words and move on. I spend very little time focusing on physical beauty. Instead, I groom myself spiritually, so what is on the inside shines through.


Humility is one of my most treasured attributes. It teaches me that even when I am victorious, it is through a combination of hard work and blessings.


I avoid getting caught up in my own accomplishments, even when others are congratulating me. There is a higher purpose to my existence than personal fulfillment. My life's purpose is to serve others and cater to their well-being.


When my boss applauds me for a job well done, I express gratitude. Then, it is back to work. Most of my time is focused on my consistency as a hardworking person.


Developing positive attributes gives me a greater sense of satisfaction than hearing someone compliment me. I appreciate the chances I get to build my character and be an upstanding member of society.


I use compliments to reinforce that things are going well with my soul. My belief is that my inner self determines what I am able to give to the world.



Today, celebrating my life and achievements is my priority because they are rooted in positivity. I embrace kind words from others as an indication that I am on the right path to building a strong and kind soul.


Self-Reflection Questions:


  1. Which compliments make me feel self-conscious?
  2. How much time do I spend empowering myself with kind words?
  3. What aspects of my character are deserving of recognition?

Strolls amidst nature are therapeutic

When it feels like I have very little steam left in my engine, I head to nature. I find an outdoor environment and get lost in it. There is something healing and renewing about fresh air. Inhaling the scents of the elements of nature connects me to my origin. I am reminded that I am naturally strong and capable.   Outdoor time allows me to heal difficult relationships with friends and family members. The fresh air gives me a clear mind and a shift in perspective.   The same is true when I am searching for new business opportunities at work. I am more innovative when I seek inspiration from nature. I become creative by observing the intricate patterns on leaves and the precision with which nature feeds itself each day. Strolling through the forest nearby teaches me that it is possible to live well with others.   When I see the plants sharing the same resources each day, I know I am capable of living in harmony with my colleagues at work. There are enough opportunities to ma

How to Streamline Your Daily Schedule and Increase Efficiency

 Do you usually feel like there are not enough hours in the day to accomplish everything you need to do? Sometimes it seems like the laundry or the dishes will just have to wait until later. I know for me, when I let things accumulate, I get overwhelmed, and then I either don't do anything at all, or I look for a distraction, usually food or shopping. The thing still doesn't get done, and it's a perpetual cycle.    That's why   as hard as it is, we must do things when we need to. Otherwise, they don't get done at all. Or we find ourselves having to do them when we truly don’t have the time for them. Then, inevitably, something else has to be put off.   This scenario also applies to work. When a project has a deadline, it’s important to devote all of your undivided attention to it, or it won't get completed. Time management is a critical aspect of every job – from planning to executing.   Your schedule needs to be structured to support efficiency and
