Become A Person of WONDER!

Posted on May 1st, 2013

What do I mean by a person of wonder?  It means being full of surprises, full of knowledge, well-rounded, full of inner fortitude, full of magic and very special.  It means ditching bad attitudes for positive ones.  It means substituting good health and fitness habits for the bad ones.  It means learning new skills and new ways of doing things.  It means being a participant in life instead of a bystander.  It means learning what constitutes a “charmed life” and creating one for yourself.  It means digging down deep and finding that childlike courage that dared you to “try anything once.”  Does this frighten you?  Laugh it off.

You can do it.  Read on for your first assignment.

List 5 things that you have accomplished in life so far that you were told by others you would not be able to do.

List 5 things that you have not accomplished that you want to do, but are a little frightened of trying.

Choose one of the five things above and make plans to do it.  Visualize yourself doing it successfully.  Repeat the visualization over and over until it seems real.  Smile and imagine others congratulating you on your success.  The more you repeat this process, the more likely it is you will accomplish your desired goal.  Practice this exercise for a few weeks.

Fill in this sentence: If I could change anything about my current life,  I would________________________.

Make plans to change it. Visualize it, feel it and take deliberate steps to make the change. Seek help with the change if you need it.

“Often we allow ourselves to be upset by small things we should despise and forget. We lose many irreplaceable hours brooding over grievances that, in a year’s time, will be forgotten by us and by everybody. No, let us devote our life to worthwhile actions and feelings, to great thoughts, real affections and enduring undertakings.”

-----Andre Maurois
