Is Will A Skill?

I would eat the marshmallow.  Then justify it by telling myself that I don't need two anyway, so I am actually doing myself a favor.

The good news?  We CAN learn NEW SKILLS that will help us!

Just a positive thought for the day!

Crucial Moments

Sometimes when I think about all that I want to know and be - I am overwhelmed at how much I have to learn.

So I read.

One of the books I have been reading lately is Influencer by Joseph Greeny, Kerry Patterson, David Maxfield, Ron McMillan and Al Switzler.

Today I read this and thought it had EVERYTHING to do with the journey of thriving and how to get there.

"Think through the crucial moments when your vital behaviors are most at risk.  Remember, these crucial moments are the time, places, people, moods, and circumstances when you are most likely to fail.  Find a way to buddy up for protection in these few crucial moments."

That is the spirit of this blog.  S.M. and I buddy up for protection and for support in discovering the path.

One more quote from that chapter... "Since you're on the wrong side of your eyeballs, you can't always see exactly what it is that you're doing that works or doesn't work."

Do we seek feedback often enough?  REAL feedback.  Not, you're my friend so make me feel better feedback - but you're my friend so tell me the truth kind of feedback.
