Confidence is for right now

habits wisdom
From Twitter yesterday. Yes, habits. In private, in public, in our thoughts, and in our deeds.

 

Confidence is for right now.

Today.

When you get ready before school.

When you arrive at school.

All through the day, class after class.

After school.

Into the evening.

Take it to bed with you.

Confidence is for right now.

The time is now (and always has been)

Disney executive coach jeff noel
Took this yesterday and reflected on the temptation to back out of my decision to retire after 30 years.

 

The time is now (and always has been).

In 2009 i created a 10-year plan.

Six years in the making and commencing at age 49, i planned to retire from Disney at 55 (in 2014) after my 30th Disney anniversary.

Two years out (2012) i started questioning if the first four years of convincing myself this was a great decision, well, if it was still the right decision.

It would have been insanely easy to say no.

Hope is not enough

(photo: Sun just breaking trough the Iowa City horizon…. coincidence that the photographer was ready at the hotel room window?)

Is hope a reliable fuel source?

Hope is not enough.

Action must support and validate our hope.

Otherwise hope is just a narcotic.

Take action. Lots of action.

In addition to what we do, action can also be defined by what we stop doing.

Hope is a fuel.

Action is a fuel also, one that burns longer and stronger.

Our spirit is very important, no?

Another scary thought is how much spiritual exercise we give ourselves

 

Our spirit is very important, no?

And like a muscle, needs regular use to remain functional.

A passive spirit, like a passive muscle, does not strengthen.

To get stronger requires strength training – doing things that challenge and tear down our spirit.

Only then does our spirit strengthen.

We know this.

Do we find excuses for not going to the spiritual gym?
