There are very few times of the year that have us pulled in more different directions at the same time as does the Christmas Season. We find ourselves stretched to the limits of our own sanity all while trying to be happy about the process.
During this time, I would just like to offer a few words in an effort to make this time of year what it really should be for all of us; a time to appreciate and be thankful for those in our lives who “put up with us” the rest of the year.
If you are as committed to improving yourself and achieving your dreams as I am, I’m sure that you realize that living with us can be difficult, to say the least. Sometimes we are so driven in our efforts to succeed and to “make things better” that we forget to really appreciate and be present with those we love.
I want to encourage you as you read this to make the decision, right now, that you are going to put your efforts to “achieve the next goal, hit the next benchmark in your business or physical fitness, get on the next webinar, etc.” on hold for just the next few days and be fully present with those who mean the most to you. Take this next few days and let your spouse or significant other, your children, your parents and your friends know how truly special and important they are to you and how blessed you feel to have them in your life. Instead of allowing your mind to wander to that next goal or achievement, be fully present in your interactions with these special people who have been with you through the ups and downs that have been your life.
Don’t worry. Those goals and achievements, as well as that next webinar, will still be right there when you come back to them. Besides, the love and support, and internal blessing, that you’ll feel from giving your full attention to those most important to you during this holiday season will probably do more to prepare you to get back to those goals than days of doing what you’ve been doing to achieve them.
Give it a try and have an AMAZING HOLIDAY!
