March 13: Fruits

We have all heard the phrase, “By their fruits you shall know them.”  Basically, it talks about the fact that you can tell what kind of tree a tree is simply by eating the fruit from the tree.  If you eat a banana, it came from a banana tree.  If you eat an orange, the fruit came from an orange tree.  It is the same with people.  You can pretty much know a person’s character by the consistent words and actions their thoughts are producing.  What fruits are YOUR consistent words and actions producing?


It has been said that if you want to change the world all you have to do is change yourself.  It is much faster and easier to focus only on changing ourselves, than it is to rush around trying to control and change everyone else and all THEY do.  We really are the only person we can truly practice controlling.

I have many role models in life.  Their characteristics and personality traits that I admire and try to emulate make me strive to be a better version of myself every single day.  They are traits like kindness, patience, good health, a healthy mind, spirituality, strength, endurance, enlightenment, mindfulness, wealth, punctuality, emotional strength, dependability, etc.  As I do my best and try my hardest every day, I make consistent gains.  When we consistently do our best, our best consistently gets better.  When I am doing my best, people around me benefit as well.  I feel like my life has purpose when I feel I am adding value to others.

Reminder to self:  Find something that works for you and do it daily.  If you try something and it doesn’t improve your life in any way, replace it with something that does.  Improve a little every day, and you will never regret it.

Today’s challenge for myself:  Today I will search and find someone I admire and figure out the daily routine they have that makes them successful in a way that I admire.

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