Put first things, first.

By the end of the day, we’re tired.

We may get tied up at work.

We may go to dinner or happy hour.

We may be busy and have other commitments, obligations, and responsibilities.

That’s why I believe in working out first thing in the morning.

My health and fitness are priorities. My workouts are a priority

Priorities come first. I do what’s most important to me first. I do what matters to me first.

I am a priority. My life is a priority. Everybody and everything else can wait.

Do yourself a favor and put first things, first.

Set Boundaries and Protect Yourself

Sometimes me must be used, abused, taken advantage of, and walked all over before we learn to stand up for ourselves and stick up for ourselves.

Take a lesson from me. Learn from my mistake.

Set boundaries and protect yourself, and do it sooner rather than later.

Time Together

Spending more time together can do one of two things:

It can pull us closer together or push us further apart.

Protect Our Energy

Be careful with our energy. It’s limited. Don’t give it all away.

Others will take it, use it, and completely drain us if we let them. Don’t let others suck the life out of us.

Our energy is ours. Use it how we please. Use it on our priorities.

After we’re taken care of, designate a piece for others.

Our energy drives us. It’s our fuel. Conserve it. We need it to live a meaningful and purposeful life.

Love is the answer.

We can’t change people.

We can’t change people who don’t see a problem with their behavior.

We can’t force people to listen. We can’t force people to change.

We can educate and inform others. We can teach others. We can share our perspective. We can share our thoughts and feelings. We can share our stories and experiences.

We can love others. We can always love others.

We can spread love. We can promote peace. We can lead by example.

We can be kind. We can always be kind.

There’s no place in this world for hate.

We can try to extinguish hatred by consistently, continuously, and constantly loving and spreading love. We can be persistent and never let up.

Love all people – not just people who look like you, act like you, walk like you, and talk like you. Love is the answer. Be the love. Spread the love.

Have a Heart

I will be understanding, gracious, and compassionate to others when they make mistakes.

I make mistakes and want others to be understanding, gracious, and compassionate to me when I do.

Safe and Comfortable

Be around people that you can be yourself.

If you can’t be yourself, you may be around the wrong people.

Dreamers and Doers

Where are my dreamers and doers?

I want to work with people who continuously want to get better and improve.

I want to work with others who want more out of life and want to live a better quality of life.

I want to work with others who want something more and want something better.

I want to work with others who care and want to do something meaningful and purposeful.

I want to work with others who will push me to be better, lift me up, and show interest in me.

I want to work with others who will teach me and help me learn.

I want to work with others who will help me and support me.

I want to work with others who will invest time and money into building something together.

I want to work with others who want to change the world for the better, make a difference, and make a positive impact.

I want to work with others who want to collaborate, share thoughts and ideas, and execute them.

I want to work with others who have open minds, high hopes, ambitions, and aspirations.

I want to work with others who are intrinsically motivated and driven.

I want to work with others who believe and have faith in what we cannot yet see.

I want to work with dreamers and doers.

Have an open mind.

I’m willing to try most things once.

I believe exploring, experimenting, and experiencing are the best ways to learn.

I’m willing to try.
