August 12: Being Prepared

If we plan ahead, we will GET ahead.

While there are things in life that happen to us that we could never expect or be prepared for, we can choose NOT to focus on the unknown and that which causes us fear or dread, and instead, focus ONLY on the things which we CAN be prepared for.

It is better to be prepared by having and doing too much, rather than not having and doing enough.  This holds true in every area of our lives!

The more prepared we are, the less unnecessary stress we experience.  The less unnecessary stress we experience, the healthier and happier we are.  The healthier and happier we are, the better we are able to think and function.  We naturally make better decisions. 

The better we are able to think and function, the more we can do for ourselves and others.  The more we enable and empower ourselves to do things for others, the more fulfilled we are, and the more valuable we become.  The more fulfilled we are, the more meaningful and enjoyable our lives are.  The more meaningful and enjoyable our lives are, the less stressed we are.  We can choose to stress less and accomplish more, through being as prepared for anything as we can possibly be.

It is easy to see how this upward cycle can go on and on, all day, all week, and all month, until living this way becomes a habit and it eventually goes on and on until the end of our lives.  

Life wasn’t designed to give us what we want or need.  Life was designed to give us what we deserve, THROUGH OUR OWN CREATIONS.

Being prepared is important.  Spiritually, financially, personally, emotionally, educationally, physically, and socially, we can all do things to improve and be more prepared.



Today I will research and learn about three simple ways I can personally be more prepared in my life.  I will integrate these three things into my daily life by adding them in to a checklist of easy-to-accomplish, daily tasks.  I will do them consistently, and habitually, which I know will help me be more and more prepared, confident, less stressed, and more able to add more value to my life and the lives of those around me.

Remember:  Mindset matters.  Character counts.  That which we choose to consistently focus on is what EXPANDS in our lives.  WE CREATE our personal realities.
