What Do You Mean You Don't Know?

You’re only as emotionally strong as this

You’re only as strong as your willingness to surrender.

Often, the things we can’t control and the things we can look the same. Be careful, be focused, and be discilined.

Surrender helps even in small details

selfie stick
Purchased at Apple Store in Maryland yesterday but it accidentally got shipped home. Neither i nor the Apple employee could figure out how to cancel it.

Surrender helps even in small details. Didn’t need to purchase a selfie stick yesterday, but the idea of having one to improve my business videos intrigues me. So in the moment, i made a decision to buy on the spot rather than wait and debate it’s value.

Because it’s small, i knew it would fit in my backpack for the flight home. And, i could experiment with it today on our college visit.

Inadvertently, the purchase was shipped, so i couldn’t leave the store with it.

The quickest solve for this was simply to accept it and let it go.

Blessed Beyond Measure?

Are you living the dream yet wanting more?

Jody Maberry and jeff noel
What a privilege to visit Disney’s Magic Kingdom with Jody Maberry.

We are by Lee Cockerell’s Disney Window on Main Street.

From serious to not-serious in 0.06 seconds.

 

Lee Cockerell's Disney window
This was where we stood, in the shadow of greatness.

A 30-second walk further and we stopped to enjoy the locals dancing and singing.

 

Jody Maberry and jeff noel
A few minutes later, more singing and dancing by the locals. It was cool for Chapin to meet Jody at our house and tag along to Magic Kingdom.

 

Are you living the dream yet wanting more?

Here’s how it probably shakes out for most of us.

  1. We have everything we need but can’t see it.
  2. We have an inaccurate definition for “having it all”.

To help me process this as i neared my 50th birthday in 2009, i wrote a book that focuses on:

• rethinking

• reprioritizing

• recommitting

How do you scale peace and contentment for an entire lifetime?

Disney motivational Speaker
Going-To-The-Sun Road, and a nice book about life balance.

 

How do you scale peace and contentment for an entire lifetime?

Find a million ways to stay motivated.

Live as if every day is a new day (because it is).

Live as if every day could be your last (because it could).

Compassion, forgiveness, humility, generosity, patience, surrender, gratitude, joy, faith, hope, and love – these are superfoods for your spirit.

Learn to be at peace with who you are and learn to be content with what you have.

Dear Son

Do you want peace and contentment in your life?

Disney sunrise
Yesterday morning during a walk in our neighborhood.

 

Disney world sunrise
Was walking on a Sunday morning with a Disney colleague. This photo was taken one minute after the one above. Doesn’t take long to miss the peak reds.

 

Do you want peace and contentment in your life?

You have to establish, maintain, and ultimately, keep improving systems and processes you control.

The long way is the short cut.
