Motivation: The Power of Celebration


Cherish

Enthusiasm

Live with passion

Excitement

Belief

Rejoice

Attitude and Action

Time

Imagination

Opportunity

Now

Cherish - your life, your loved ones, your work. My dictionary defines cherish as "to hold dear to you." There are so many things in our lives to cherish. What might it be for you? If you answer, nothing, then ask yourself "what could it be, if you wanted to?" The more that we cherish in our lives, the more cherished our lives will be.

Enthusiasm - So many people go through each day in a state of trance. If you don't believe me, just stand outside a large office building on Monday morning, and you'll see the expression I mean. What would our lives be like if we brought the same kind of enthusiasm that we bring to a football game into all areas of our lives?

Live with passion / Excitement - Have you ever noticed that many of the sensations that are part of excitement (rapid heartbeat, sweaty palms, feeling "charged up") are also the same sensations that go along with fear? How might your life be different if you turned your fear into excitement?

Belief - Just about every major religion in the world talks about the power of belief. It was Jesus Christ who said "if you have belief the size of a mustard seed, you can say to that mountain, move, and it shall be moved." The power of belief allows us to move the mountains of our lives.

Rejoice - Exactly what does it mean to rejoice? Back to the dictionary again: mine defines rejoice as "to feel or express joy or gladness, to exult." A rejoicing soul is a happy soul.

Attitude and Action - It's been said that "your attitude determines your altitude." While that may be true in part, attitude is worthless unless it's followed by action.

Time - We are all familiar with the old saying "time heals all wounds." Sorry, I don't buy it. Time is neutral, it merely passes. It's what we do with our time that makes the difference between mediocrity and a life well lived.

Imagination - Do you use yours? Or have you set it aside? The power of imagination is at the root of every great change and achievement.

Opportunity - When we focus on what is wrong in our lives, we tend to miss the opportunities that come our way. When we are celebrating our lives, we are focusing on what works, and then are able to see the multitude of opportunities that come our way each day.

Now - Celebrate now. Not next year, not when you are out of school, not when you get that new job or are making more money. Celebrate now. No one, not a one of us, is promised next year or even tomorrow. Celebrate now.
