“The happiness of your life depends upon the quality of your thoughts.” Marcus Aurelius

We are not born happy or unhappy. In fact, up to 40% of our happiness can be changed by engaging in daily, intentional activities that impact how we act and think (see Sonya Lyubomirsky’s cool studies!). We can try to be happier which elevates our mood, and when we are happier, we are more productive, creative, engaged, live longer, and enjoy the relationships with our family and friends more. This week, choose happiness, my friends!

 

This week’s Power Phrase:  I choose happiness. Happiness is inside of me at any time!”

Two Harvard psychologists recently found in a study that 47% of the time our mind is not in the present moment. The amount of time our mind is not in the present moment is connected to our unhappiness. Staying in the present is so important because the present moment is also the ONLY place high performance happens and the only place we can be great leaders and parents. The key is to give up on nursing those grudges, or recalling the past when things didn’t go well. We need to train ourselves not to live in the future focused on pressure, fear and anxiety. Remember that staying in the present moment more often is all about awareness first, and a choice second.

 

This week’s Power Phrase:  I own the moment. I train my mind to be in the present, right here, right now.”

In this time of change and uncertainty, there are many uncontrollables including when we will get a vaccine for COVID-19 or the restrictions in place. But we are in control of our attitude. In this episode, Cindra shares how your attitude impacts how you perceive events in your life which impacts your actions and the outcome. It’s helpful to remember we do have a negativity bias, but we can counteract that negativity by choosing to not believe everything we think, talking to ourselves powerfully, and remembering to see the opportunity in every difficulty.

 

This week’s Power Phrase:  “I choose a good attitude regardless of what I cannot control. I talk to myself not listen.”

In this time of uncertainty around the nation, we can show compassion with others by gifting others with kindness and understanding. As leaders, we can realize people are suffering and have an authentic desire to listen and understand. Showing compassion is essential for human survival. We can listen with an open mind without judgment, work to understand another person’s perspective, and show ourselves some self-compassion at the same time. 

 

This week’s Power Phrase:  “I show myself and others compassion while listening with an open mind to understand their perspective.”

You can also put your thoughts through “The Truth Meter” and choose an I will….I can…or I am statement to give you a better chance of success.

 

This week’s Power Phase:  “I will not believe everything I think and put my thoughts through the truth meter. I will talk powerfully to myself today!”
