The Difference Between Being Afraid and Being Nervous




A young skater was having a bad case of butterflies before an event.  She told her coach she was just too afraid to go out on the ice,

"You're not afraid,  You're just nervous," said the coach. "There's a difference."

He told her a story to explain the difference:

"A man goes into a restaurant and orders a $100 meal. He's nervous because he ordered such a high-priced meal, but knows he has the $100 in his pocket."

"Now fear," said the coach, "is going into the restaurant and ordering a $100 meal, knowing you have no money in your pocket."

The skater went out and finished in first place.   ~Tom Condon

Healthy Relationships- 10 Keys to Happy & Loving Relationships


The first and most important investment we can ever make in to invest in our own personal growth and self-development.  When we work on becoming the best that we can be,  we have so much more to give to others.  We cannot give what we do not have.

If we have strength, we can strengthen others.
If we have a positive outlook, we can encourage others.
If we have insight, we can enlighten others.
If we have wisdom, we can advise others.
If we have love, we can love others.

3 Daily Power Habits - To Practice Before the End of Each New Day




I write quite a bit about how our lives are determined by the choices we make each New Day!

Our consistent choices and routines become habits - good or bad. Developing and maintaining good habits is a constant goal of mine. The way we start our day and the way we end it matters!

Following I will share 3 daily habits that I believe give us the power to be our best.  These habits are best practiced before going to bed each night.  

(1)  I have shared the gratitude habit with you before - before bed, simply write or reflect on 3 things that went well for you that day, things you are thankful for.  Before you know it, this habit helps you to really appreciate people and life.  One thing I have discovered, you cannot be happy and unthankful at the same time.  Happy, joyous people practice gratitude!

(2) Do not go to sleep angry. Nothing robs your peace of mind like unresolved anger. Sometimes it's not possible to resolve a problem that is causing the anger, but this may help:

Journal your feelings and the desire to release yourself from the pain,
Remind yourself to accept what you cannot control and change only what you can,
Tell yourself that you will not give away your power and strength to whatever or whomever has triggered the anger within you
Release the situation/person to a power greater than yourself (if you're a person of faith, pray and give it to God).

(3) This one is my personal favorite that I learned from John Maxwell.  I have practiced power habit #1 for so long that my gratitude list becomes endless.  Habit #3 has really challenged me and helped me to continue to grow and change,  So here it is:

At the end of each day, ask yourself:  What did I learn today?

It can be anything at all.  Nothing is too simple.  The point is to reflect and gain insight.  This is how we learn and change so we can be our best.

Following are a few things I recorded that I have learned:

= > Reaping negative consequences can do one of two things in a person:  it can break them and they will take responsibility for their actions and make changes OR they will become hardened, prideful and bitter

= > Work in your strength zones if you ever want to be happy and  fulfilled and feel successful.

= > Show people appreciation for their best efforts.  Criticism and complaints make you want to do less and give less to them.  It shuts down your joy in giving.

= > When you smile at a complete stranger, it stretches you out of your comfort zone and communicates love and kindness. The feelings somehow stay with you for awhile. You may even be pleasantly surprised by their response.

I hope these power habits have inspired you to end each new day well and be ready for another new day expecting good things for your life!

I encourage you to stay in the power habit of daily self-improvement and live your life to your maximum potential,  Krystal
