Word of the day Wednesday, May 24, 2017

A word I started hearing quite a bit a few weeks ago and even more the last few days: 

What IS collusion?? The Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines collusion as a secret agreement or cooperation especially for an illegal or deceitful purpose acting in collusion with the enemy. 

For example, you hear people gossiping or talking about things other than what their job is to do. This is collusion! Why? Because we get paid to do our job, not to gossip or talk about other topics. How much time each day do you spend doing things other than your job? Don’t be embarrassed if your answer is your entire shift 😬, it’s more common than you think! Does it make it right? Not necessarily. Please proceed as you desire. 

Now my family and I are listening to a news program and they have said the word “collusion” every other minute for the last half hour. 😳 The collusion this news program is talking about is evidence or no evidence of collusion regarding the votes cast for Donald Trump in the presidential election. I’m not trying to get into a discussion about this new administration, rather about the use of the word collusion. 

Collusion is common. It’s all around us whether we like it or not. Another news example is this past week, a cell phone provider had several stores where their employees walked out from their job. They were colluding with their company. There was a secret agreement for these employees to walk out on their jobs on the same day and at the same time for the purpose of disrupting their companies business process. 

Can you think of any collusion happening in your world?

Word of the day Wednesday, May 10, 2017

Who do you listen to the most? Yourself!! All that self-talk can be sabatoging or uplifting; it’s important that you choose wisely!

Word of the day today:

The words we tell ourselves is vital to our emotions and how we treat others. Believe it or not, it’s even important in getting great sleep and having awesome mornings! 

What in the world am I talking about? Well, I started realizing a couple months ago, my father never says, “I’m tired.” Yet I hear everyone else around me say it a LOT!! My father is one of those Energizer bunny people who is constantly moving and doing stuff, thinking and being creative. He still works full-time as a mechanic at nearly 78 years old!! 

As I thought about those little words, I realized That when you say it out loud, it makes your whole mind and body feel that way. Is dragging yourself through the day fun for you? If not, let’s change that self-talk! How about we tell ourselves, “I’m energized!” instead? Where your mind goes, your body will follow!

While reading Miracle Morning, by Hal Elrod, he speaks about how thenlast thing you tell yourself before you go to bed is the first thought when you wake up. For example, when you tell yourself, “I’m going to be so tired in the morning.” You’ll wake up thinking, “I’m so tired.”

How about telling yourself, “I’m going to get five hours of sleep and wake up energized to do my exercise and spend 20-minutes doing self-development studying.” Would you know, that’s the first thing you’ll think about when you wake up?! It’s so amazing, you won’t regret it!!

Read Miracle Morning! I highly encourage it!!
