It’s Time | Your world vision

We are programmed in society to believe in duality, that the solutions to problems, the rightness, the truth, must lie within either an A or a B. Two choices, that’s it. They are usually extreme opposites, such as in gender, politics, race, etc. And they are too often pitted against each other.

Albert Einstein defined insanity as “doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results”. And yet we keep hoping to find the answers within the same two A and B extremes.

Let your mind go free. How about a C? Or better yet, a C, D, E, etc – brand new ideas and perspectives outside of A and B. Or at the very least, a new middle ground, a place of cooperation between A and B.

Albert Einstein also said: “Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.”

Your Champions | Your story is yours, so don't let the naysayers write your life for you. | HartHaiku.com

Your Champions | They’re gold

What would you do without the people who are in your corner, cheering you on? They are your champions, and here’s why they are so important:

Every day and all around you, there are people expressing their opinion about how you “should be”. It can be extremely crippling when you buy into it, because so often these unsolicited gems of wisdom are negative. These people are not secure in themselves, consequently their chief aim is to demoralize, demotivate, and drain you. They are called “energy vampires”, and this is how they achieve some or all of their personal power. They do not want to see you succeed, because they believe that would somehow diminish them.

Your champions, on the other hand, aren’t trying to mold you into their idea of success. Rather, they see your talents and strengths and encourage you to follow your own unique path. They offer to share their knowledge and mentor you, where it is appropriate. They truly care about your success!

So believe in your dream, intend to succeed, and work at it passionately. You will find your true champions gathering around you. Hold them close, treasure them, express gratitude to them often. Your champions are pure gold.

Intention or Wish? | A wish is a wisp, an elusive piece of smoke. Intention creates. | HartHaiku.com

Intention or Wish? | Decide

We’re almost halfway through 2019. How are your New Year’s resolutions going? (Wait! Is that a multitude of groans I’m hearing from afar?) Yes, many of us make them, and almost all of us break them. Why, you may ask? Is it that mostly we lack true resolve? Are our resolutions simply too big and we give up early? Some of that may be going on, but the real essence of it may be the difference between wishing and intending.

“Wishing”: To feel or express a strong desire or hope.
“Intending”: To have a plan or course of action as one’s purpose.

See the difference here?

A wish is an idea or vision you have in your mind, attached to a hope that somehow a genie in a bottle, a fairly godmother, or some other external power is somehow magically going to deliver it.

An intention, on the other hand, combines that same desire with a solid plan. And, YOU make it happen! You have the power, with your creative mind and your intentional action. The catch is, this requires self-discipline (focus and commitment) and self-love (the belief you deserve it), combined with some good old-fashioned elbow grease.

So, rewind to January 1st. Did you set an intention, or simply make a wish? There’s still time…

In any moment,
you can change the path you’re on.
“New Year” is always.

Today | Start of a new day. Have you given your thoughts space to bring good to you? | HartHaiku.com

Today | Your time & worth

Today there are the three powerful little ideas wrapped up in my haiku: Time, thought, and your worth.

Time: Do you fully embrace each day? We know we are mortal (and our ego fears it), but, we still tend to live life as though we have an endless supply of days. You have the choice, right now, to make the most of today. Wring every beautiful moment out of it that you can. Because when it’s over, today is not coming around again. Don’t miss out on anything that you could enjoy, embrace, love, or learn right now. Fully immerse yourself in your life. A movie that drives this idea home brilliantly is About Time. If you haven’t seen it, try to.

Thought: Is your mind consumed with your to-do list the second you wake up? Do your thoughts dwell too often on problems, your personal ones and those of the world? Is there any time today reserved for contemplation, introspection, gratitude for the good things you already have in your life? (Gratitude expands abundance.) And perhaps most importantly, mindful intention to create your ideal life? If not, I strongly urge you to make space for those.

Your worth: Do you even believe that you deserve to have good things come your way? You do. If you don’t believe it, long term you have some internal work to do. But in the meantime, I’ll bet you have at least one champion in your life – you know, a person who believes in you, when you can’t or won’t believe in yourself – that loves you enough to talk you through this. Connect with that person, somehow or some way, even if it’s for just a quick “Hi”. Today, surround yourself with your champions. (And don’t forget to express gratitude and take an interest in their lives too. A balanced life involves mutual exchange.)

Today is all we’ve really got. Please, hear the call, pick up the ball, and run as fast as you can towards your happiness.

Today.

Possibilities | The infinite you

Your potentiality may be a good subject for Monday morning. Why, you say? Well, did you just drag yourself to a job that you hate in order to pay the rent and get by? Or, did you get up today with excitement, looking forward to work that fulfills you and gives you joy?

I know. This is a big thought, and if your answer is “I dragged myself to…”, it can be a depressing one. But consider this: Waking up and honestly addressing what may be making you unhappy is the first important step to changing it. It’s just too easy to gloss it over, or numb it with small pleasures.

This article outlines six factors that require just a little effort and are likely to increase your happiness quotient. If you don’t want to read the whole article, scroll to the bottom: The formula for a happy life… 

Big changes require baby steps. And the good feeling you get from a small change grows into desire to do more. It’s the ripple effect.

The sky is not the limit. You are full of INFINITE possibilities. Now, isn’t that a great thought for a Monday morning?
