We were enjoying the heck out of spring here in New England, when someone decided to turn winter back on.
And there’s the truth, ladies and gents! Some things are in your control, and some aren’t. Might as well control the things you can and take your attention off the other stuff.
Oh, and enjoy these awesome Truth Bombs while you’re at it…
An Anti-Bullying Truth Bomb from Tar’Lese Rideaux:
HAVE YOU EVER BEEN BULLIED?? I was bullied this morning and it was AWFUL!
This girl told me that since I missed my yoga class, I should just give up and not even TRY to get into shape today.
She also told me that I was a loser because I SAID I was going to complete a bunch of tasks over the weekend and I fell short on them.
She told me I was slacking, that I could do more and that there are a lot of people out there that are better at what I do than I am.
MAN, what a blow to the stomach that was.. I think a lot of you might know this girl, her name is Tar’Lese Rideaux. Every once and a while her voice comes in to my head and I start to doubt myself.
This USED to stop me dead in my tracks and I would say ” I should just give up”
But today was different, today I TOOK A STAND.
So many times in life, no matter how many people cheer us on, no matter how many people believe in us, we BULLY OURSELVES
We let the mind monkeys jump around in our heads telling us that we are not good enough and that other people are better than we are.
When in reality…. THE ONLY PERSON HOLDING YOU BACK is……YOU
Stop beating yourself up, you have what it takes!!! YOU have a lot to offer the world so stop letting the bully in your head tell you things that simply are NOT true…
Be spectacular NOW…. not later.
A Marketing Truth Bomb from Dr. Bob Clarke:
People will not buy stuff because they like and trust you.
They will buy what will HELP them…
The liking and trusting part just SEALS the deal.
A Maturity Truth Bomb from Larry
An immature person will look at someone more successful than themselves and resent them.
A developing person will look at someone more successful than themselves and try to compete with them.
A mature person will look at someone more successful than themselves and celebrate them. They will seek to serve them, learn from them and earn their way to that same success.
An Abundance Truth Bomb from Jacqueline Gates:
Sweetiepie, if you subconsciously believe that there will never be enough, every single thing you do will be according to that belief.
You will never be satisfied. You will compete, compare, strive.
You will overeat, extreme coupon or hoard things for a ‘rainy day’.
And the irony is … none of this is necessary.
*gently puts her arm round your shoulder*
Darling, gorgeous, glorious one, there is more than enough.
This is an abundant and friendly universe …if you allow yourself to believe and receive.
Believe. And receive.
There’s so much goodness waiting to flow right into every corner of your life.
Isn’t it time you got your foot off the hose?
A Writing Truth Bomb from Aimee Van Ausdall:
Today I am feeling gratitude to my 7th grade English teacher, Mr. Enke, my 11th grade English teacher, Mrs. Ihrke, and my quirky graduate history professor, Patricia Nelson Limerick. Thank you for teaching me the importance of good grammar and engaging storytelling. The message I want to convey cannot be separated from the way I convey it.
And finally, a Networking Truth Bomb from Joel Comm:
Once you know your stuff, it’s not what you know. It’s WHO you know.
What KA-BOOMED You?
