Ben routinely had a cup of coffee each and every day at the local shop and today was no different, or was it? When Ben would prepare his cup of coffee, he would add teaspoon after teaspoon of sugar. The waitress was watching Ben's behavior and couldn't help but notice! "Ben", the waitress asked, "Why are you adding so much sugar to your coffee"? Ben replied, "I add more sugar because it's never sweet enough!" The waitress smiled and said, "Ben, you don't need to add more sugar. You just need to STIR WHAT YA GOT"!
How many of us give more notice to the disappointments instead of the accomplishments. I'm amazed at how many things my clients do accomplish; yet more give notice to what's not yet, instead of, what has happened! When attention is drawn to the accomplishments, responses can range from "Really"? To "I didn't know", or even, "You're just saying that"!
When you think of your goals that you've now set for the year (and please tell me you've written your goals!), think about the qualities and strengths that you can build from! There are areas of your life that you feel extremely good about and others that you would like to see improve! How many of us are quick to acknowledge what we're not or what hasn't happened, and forget what and who we are and what we've accomplished?
Let's remind ourselves of the qualities and characteristics that make us all unique, and give less attention to the frailties that make us human.
