#48: Keep a song in your heart
How do you spend your mornings? Today’s show is all about learning how to keep a song in your heart and how to protect your mornings for yourself. Listen in as I share stories from my childhood and from my mentors about how song has helped us through tough times and bad news. Then learn how protecting your mornings leads to greater efficiency and productivity in your day.
I have four questions for you today. I want you to write them down and really dig into the answers that you think of. Then share them with me in a review for this episode!
- If you and I were meeting three years from today, what has to have happened during that three year period in order for you to feel happy about your progress?
- What are the biggest challenges you’re dealing with right now in regard to achieving that progress?
- What are the biggest opportunities that you would need to focus on and capture to achieve those things?
- What strengths will you need to reinforce and maximize and what skills and resources, that you don’t currently have, will you need to develop in order to capture those opportunities?
I’m looking forward to hearing your answers to these questions and seeing you at the Thrive Conference. Stay focused, stay faithful, and don’t forget to tune in next week, when I’ll talk all about reducing stress in four practical ways.
