I’m sure we’d all prefer a pandemic of kindness instead of COVID. Instead of living in an environment where we are in control of our well-being … where our feet are firmly on the ground … we are all currently trying to navigate some pretty difficult and turbulent waters in an effort to regain footing …
So, what are we aiming to achieve? Let me answer the question with a question … how would you describe the ideal state of being in your life? As humans we experience the world in many ways … physically, emotionally, intellectually, spiritually … so how would you define the ideal state for yourself?
I want to begin our journey by outlining two specific domains of thought about humanity and happiness … that is Spiritual and Scientific. For some, one of these is more important than the other.
If you’ve read any self-development book or attended any training … more than likely your knee jerk assumption for doing things daily is that a “daily practice” is what creates habit and consistency. That’s true and necessary, but it’s not the reason “daily” is so important.
Something that we all have RIGHT now … that if we can learn to click together, will enable us to move happiness right now … or anytime … anyplace. It’s based on a principle called The Cognitive Triangle.
Given this cognitive triangle … the answer for controlling the path to happiness seems to be simple … manage feelings, thoughts, and actions.
So, our back drop is to focus on the day and act in such a way that we create and fuel a positive cycle by deliberately choosing positive thoughts and actions. Simple yet many people take issue with this.
Gratitude helps us stoke positive momentum for the day … it helps us tap into the sources of JOY in our lives … however small or insignificant those sources may seem.
Contrary to popular belief, “Good Days” are not “had”, they are MADE. They are not made necessarily by the activities of day or what happens to us, but more so by how we THINK about the events of the day … going back to the cognitive triangle.
So, we are going to be active in being thankful each day and doing something for others. Learning and growing for each of us is almost infinite.
That’s pretty much it my friends … just intentionally check the boxes of each of the three swim lanes as often as you can throughout the day. If you think and act each day in the swim lanes of gratitude, making it a good day, and learning and growing you will live a pretty outstanding life.
