Good Morning

Have you ever wondered what happens to all those crazy thoughts going on in your head?

We all have them.

Thoughts about what you should have done in a situation after it has happened. Thoughts about jumping out of your car and really telling the idiot who cut you off how you feel.

I have.

So, I constantly monitor my thoughts to make sure they are positive and in keeping with the person I want to be. This is because my thoughts control my feelings which control my performance and I want to do my best at all times.

This isn’t easy by the way.

However I have realised that no matter what crazy thoughts you are having, the measure of you is not your thoughts, but the actions you take. That is the thoughts you act upon.

Actions, not thoughts, will determine what people think about you. Because they can’t hear or see your thoughts, they can only see and hear what you do or say.

This week really take note of what you doing or saying. Keep doing the things that work and stop the things that don’t.

It’s hard work, but the rewards will be amazing.

Best regards,
Glenn Edley

Good Morning

Your brain is one of the most powerful computers on the planet. As of Feb 2020 there is believed to be 7.8 Billion more. I am talking about your brain.

When you are awake you have multiple programs running – breathing (always good), heart beating, seeing and hearing etc. We then might run the program of driving to work and once that is finished run the program of sitting at our desk.

However what we try and do is have lots of programs running at once and so, like a computer with too many windows open, our brain slows down.

We are not good at multi-tasking.

Because when we multi-tasking we are not doing those jobs to the best of our ability. Our brain has slowed down trying to do too many things at once.

To be more efficient, and do a better job, we should do one thing at a time.

This week try it yourself. Concentrate on one job at a time. You will be surprised at how efficient you become and how well you do things.

Good Morning

Are you living in a bubble?

Todays MondayMotivator has probably reached you at your work bubble.

Which you got to in your car bubble, after leaving your home bubble. This evening you will most probably drive in your car bubble, to your gym bubble, or supermarket bubble, and then back to your home bubble.

Think about this for a minute. Thats a lot of bubbles. But your still, in a bubble.

Take a look around you and see who is there. If your in an office by yourself have a good look at your office.

Right. This is your work bubble. Do you like it? I’m grateful I do. But I do have to burst it sometimes and so I either go for a walk to the coffee shop up the road – my coffee shop bubble – or organise a meeting with someone.

Because you never know what is going to happen when you burst your bubble. I meet all sorts of interesting people walking up to, from and at the coffee shop. And at meetings I get inspired and come up with new ideas, or rehash old ones to make them better.

Opportunites will come when you burst your bubble. Walk instead of drive. Turn left instead of right. Make time to see your friends and clients.

Burst a bubble today and have terrific week.

Glenn Edley

Quote for the week

“Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”

Good Morning

With our busy lifestyles, there’s often not enough time to focus on the great things our partner brings to our life. In fact, we often only target the negative things that they say or do. Let’s reverse this and follow the rule:

— Catch them when they’re good.

What this means is that you need to heap praise on your partner every time they do things that you like. The best way to remember this is to ask yourself on a daily basis, ”What 2 things have they done today that I can praise them for?”
Then make sure you tell them before you go to sleep at night.

Try this today. It works for your work mates too.

Good Morning

Have you ever asked yourself, “what do I know?”

The next question that might pop up after a piece of information bubbles to the surface would be, “how do I know that?”.

I feel positive that if you asked yourself those two questions you would never come to the end of your knowledge. Because, as you ask yourself those questions you would then know something else and then something else that would be the result of adding those two pieces of information together.

But the interesting thing about this is that you would get to pieces of information that you would not know where you got them from. There are experiments by Quantum Physicists that show at a Quantum level everything is connected by potential. Now I’m not a Quantum Physicist but to me that rings true and I’m thinking it is from this place we must collect that information we don’t know how we know.

So what does this mean to you on a Monday morning? Apart from, “Come on Glenn it’s Monday. Do I have to think this hard?”.

You have more influence than what you think you do. You are more than you think you are.

And, as we start another week of a new year I would like you to start thinking about how much you’ve achieved last year. Take a minute now. Write 3 things down.
1.
2.
3.

I can tell you that you’ve done great and I’m really looking forward to seeing what you can do in 2020!

Good Morning

I love inspiring views that I can recall time and time again to give me a lift by reminding the sky is always blue above the clouds.

For example, I once had the opportunity to view the North Island from 16,000ft as I flew to and from Palmerston North.

What an amazing sight. Out one window you can see mountains, with lots of snow and beautiful lakes, and out the other window, green ocean and Mt Taranaki, cloudless in the morning sun. Fantastic.
A quick photo out the window locks it in. But what I find works best to lock a view in is looking for small details in the scenery. I find I am suddenly paying a lot more attention to what I’m seeing.

Try it next time you’re driving. Your attention to the road ahead will sharpen as you pick out things you’d never usually see as you rush by.

This week look for the small details and you will find you are taking in a lot more than you would have thought possible. Smiling helps :)

Have a successful week.

Glenn Edley

Do you ever ask yourself, “How did I get here?”

Monday Motivator

Greetings!

Do you ever ask yourself, “How did I get here?”

Quick digression. I can’t say that without hearing it in David Byrne’s voice

So, recently, I did and it was very interesting – for me. I could pinpoint events that totally changed the course of my life. Events that mean I can see my life as distinct chapters of generally five years or so.

This was a great exercise because it became very clear to me that the choices I make and the attitude I had clearly sent me in one direction or another.

An example would be joining the Air Force and another would be leaving the Air Force. Both of these events had huge effects on my life. The first meant I left home at 18 and moved to the other end of New Zealand. The second made it easy for me to get a job because I had a range of skills, turned up on time, and worked hard.

Your decisions today do affect your life tomorrow and this exercise makes that very clear. By looking ahead to where you want to be you can decide the path you will have to take to get there. Then as you make decisions think about whether this choice keeps you on the path and is going to get you there. Maybe do it every so often as it will keep you on track to the life you want.

Have a wonderful day.

Glenn Edley

Do you keep up a facade?

Monday Motivator

Happy New Year!

Do you keep up a facade that the rest of the world know you as? It’s sometimes called your self-belief – the picture you hold of yourself you believe to be true.

There are many reasons for having a facade: protecting yourself, keeping up appearances, getting something you want. They take a lot of energy to keep up though and eventually the cracks begin to show, and grow until the wall comes down.

Being honest about who you are can be frightening though because you are inviting others in. You are inviting them into your inner sanctum. The place where you are you.

The part that can make this hard of course is a lot of people have no idea who they really are so they try different facades to see which one fits. This isn’t a bad idea but it can be a waste of time because none of them will be the real you.

We have a great opportunity soon to have a crack at finding out who we are. Over the Christmas break, all the family stuff will bring out the real you. Take a hard look at yourself. Make some notes about how you act and decide if there is something you want to change.

Pick one thing and work on it during the next year. But only pick one thing because if you pick too many you will fail after a few weeks.

Let me know what you think yours will be in January and until then take note of your facade. Do you really need it?

Wishing you a year full of happy days!

Glenn Edley

Happy Holidays!

You get 86,400 seconds a day, that looks like a big number but those seconds tick by at a pace we seem to set ourselves.

In a hurry = never enough time.

In the flow of what your doing = time almost slows down.

It can be so easy then to think to yourself, it’s ok I will say thank you, I appreciate you or call someone later and then the day flies by and the moment is gone.

I believe you should say or do things straight away. Call or text that person as soon as they pop into your mind.

For example, thank you. These two words change lives. Yes, they are that powerful. Say them more often and you will be amazed at the results.

You know if you wake up every day and your family are alive and well and add to that you’re in NZ there is a lot to be thankful for. When I do I’m starting my day at Happiness Level 10!

Have a wonderful Christmas and remember to make good use of your 86,400 seconds. They don’t go on forever…

Build Life-Changing Habits Through Tiny Changes

Good Morning!

One of the first things that go out of the window as we get busier is our fitness.

A gym session is easy to put off when you’re busy and in a rush to get to work or home. A walk around the block is a lot slower when you’ve got a toddler wanting to “walk” and it’s harder to find time in the evening when they don’t go to bed on time.

Unfortunately, this affects our immune system meaning that we get run down and stressed out more easily.

What to do?

Before we had kids I realised my time was going to be at a premium and I had to figure out how to stay fit without going to the gym. This has culminated in a daily morning practice of burpees, skipping and stretching in the evening. Stretching is stretching what I do, to be honest. Sitting on the floor instead of a couch and moving around is more like it :)

However, my daily practice means that even if I don’t get to work out in the evening I’ve done something that positively affects my fitness and mental health each day. And it hasn’t been that hard to do.

The outcome of forming some simple habits over the years is I’ve stayed relatively fit and healthy and my regime is super portable. It just needs me, a skipping rope and some floor space. Simple.

This week think about programming some time for you each day to move and jump, go to the gym or take a walk. Stick to your guns and take the time for yourself. If someone wants to have coffee during your time ask them if they want go for a walk instead. The difference in your life and those around you will be huge.

Have a great week.

Glenn Edley
