Just for Today By Josh Hinds

Category: MotivationJosh Hinds @ 12:49 pm

Just for today choose to slow down just a bit. Make the decision to watch a sunset — or if you’re an early riser, a sunrise. Decide that during this time you will block out any
apprehension you might be feeling for what’s going on in your life, just long enough to fully be in the moment.

Encourage and Inspire Others…

Make the choice to reach out to the person who appears to be alone — you might make a new friend or trusted colleague. At the least you’ll benefit from the act of doing a kindness for another.

Reach out to someone who might be struggling or looking for guidance. Offer to mentor that person. You have unique talents, gifts, and experiences that would benefit others
who might be just beginning on the path you’ve been effectively navigating for years. You can literally be a hero to another person.

Your encouragement, given at just the right moment has the ability to propel you to near super hero status in the eyes of another. Therefore, don’t be stingy with it, look for ways to inspire others to be the
best they can be.

Practice Random Acts of Kindness…

Random acts of kindness are incredibly powerful gifts we can give to others, but the benefits don’t stop with the person we are sharing them with. They also have a boomerang effect in that while we are doing for another, the positive benefits also make their way back to us at the same time. It’s a powerful phenomenon — the benefits of which can be far reaching.

Choose Purpose Over Chance…

As you move through your day remember that you can either operate by chance, or with purpose. Chance, is certainly one choice, but the end result never works out as well as deciding on purpose. Beginning the journey of living on purpose can be as simple as taking the time each night to write down some necessary tasks or items that when completed will get you to where you want to go in life.

In the grand scheme of things the time it will take to develop that habit is nothing compared to the vast benefits you’ll gain as a result. Make the choice to live on purpose
over chance.

Remember…

It’s your life, LIVE BIG!
