Are You Satisfied with Your Year So Far?

By Shawnaschuh

Remember the excitement of January and how it spurred us to plan, dream and determine some goals? Our imagination ran wild – or at least mine did.

It’s now half a year in – how are you doing? What is it that you want that will make this the best year of your life?

Use your imagination – sit under a tree or a hammock and contemplate your dreams – its summer – a perfect time to sit and think, or sit and chat, or simply sit when it comes to that! (a reference to the poet Don Blanding here)

Ernest Newman said this about imagination, “The great composer does not set to work because he is inspired, but becomes inspired because he is working. Beethoven, Wagner, Bach and Mozart settled down day after day to the job in hand with as much regularity as an accountant settles down each day to his figures. They didn’t waste time waiting for inspiration.”

Can you do the same with your dreams? Day after day doing the work that brings your rewards?

A picture is painted one brush stroke at a time, a novel is written one page at a time; a company is created one sale, one employee, one idea, and one action at a time.

Use your imagination –We’re in the middle of the year – what do you want to do? What do you want to create, learn, enjoy, experience?

Then get it into a routine, a habit, a way of life – so that you are living inspired like Beethoven, Wagner, Bach and Mozart – they did the work every day – Imagine that!

You Create Your Day by the way You Think! Be Present!

Go make it a Magnificent Day!

Blessings, Shawna
