The power of deliberateness. To think about what you’re doing when you’re doing it, deliberately, as many times during the day as you can. Why bother?
It’s so easy to live our life on automatic pilot. Our habits are set, personal and social habits. We know what to do without even consciously thinking about it.
But to slow down and pay attention to whom we’re actually being and how we’re actually living in the moment can be a wake-up moment for us. It can help us see what we’ve never known before. Sometimes we see that we’re not being the kind of person that we could be or the kind of person that we want to be. Some of our habits take us in directions we don’t really want to go. But if we never witness this for ourselves, personal growth and positive change is unlikely to be a significant part of our life. We want to live and grow and become the most kind and loving and helpful person that we can be.
Be deliberate. Watch yourself. See what could be improved. And then set new habits for yourself that will help you move in better directions, for the good of your soul and for the good of all those whose lives you touch.
All the best, as always,
