Your mind is very powerful. You know how when buy a new car you start seeing that same car and color everywhere? Were those cars all hiding in their garage a week ago or has your perception changed?

This week Simon Tyler applies this concept to the areas of your life where you don’t like what you see.

At first I thought this Tip should be shared at the beginning of the year in January, but as I read on, listened to the birds singing outside my window, felt the fresh breeze on my face, and the sense of Spring, I became more and more inspired by Michael Neill’s words. I hope you will be, too!
I’ve just come back from a week of vacation where my time was very fluid. My husband and I agreed that we would spend the week as if we were retired. Fun! Lots of Self and Inspiring time that Simon Tyler speaks of below. I chose not to participate in Drain time. Now that I’m back at work, I’m going to put time on my calendar for Self and Inspiring so that I continue investing my time wisely.
