How many of you give up moments of your busy day to have a quiet time?
If you have been reading this blog very long, you know that I usually never blog on Sunday. The exception to my own rule only takes place if I am participating in a blogging challenge, which I am right now.
Also, if you have been following me for any length of time, you know that I start every day with meditation/prayer time. My quiet time.
Sunday’s are different.
At least for me. I take a break from the hustle and bustle of my business to spend leisure time with family and friends, catch up on my reading, or contemplate my week.
If you are not doing something similar, I highly recommend you do. Taking time to stop and reflect can make all the difference in your attitude and how you approach your online business every day.
For instance, today I have spent time by myself being grateful for all the experiences I had last week that were in some way related to my business.
My conclusion was that I had an awesome week!
I was able to celebrate the release of Pat O’Bryan’s new and improved Absolute Beginner’s Guide To Internet Wealth, where my chapter on social media is included. (Yes, you can have one for FREE by clicking the above link!)
I completed a mastermind call, a coaching call, attended a couple of webinars, and finished writing my Twitter course, which will be offered towards the end of the month. Also communicated with my lists, had my first sale from a new affiliate product, began the process of helping an offline business get online, and all-in-all had a very productive week.
Why am I telling you all this?
Certainly not to bore you. (although I can see where that might happen!) But, to encourage you. To let you know that sitting quietly and reflecting on your wins from the previous week will put you in the motivated driver’s seat. When you think about and savor what went right, you put your mind in a positive mode.
It is the key to keeping your focus on the positive!
Why? Because when you are alone in your quiet time, the distractions fade away. Had I not spent time alone, all the glitches that went on last week (yes, there were several) might have stayed in the forefront of my mind, holding me back. In your meditative time, there is nobody around to rain on your parade. It is easier to remember all the wonderful opportunities that came your way.
Be grateful for all of them. Especially be grateful for your quiet time!
