It is time to prune your relationships.

Pay attention to who you have in your life as they are way more important than you think.

Most of us tend to stagnate in our lives as far as relationships go. We keep the same friends, etc., even though our values change. But as our values change, we need new relationships to reinforce them. Pruning makes room for new growth.

Who do you want to bring into your life and who has to go in order to make room for them?

This phrase will save you from pushy people.

Say “I’ll get back to you” when you get an unreasonable request from someone.

Many of us have a hard time saying no to unreasonable requests. We give up control and get pushed into something we don’t want to do. If you can’t say “no”, you can delay them by putting them off. Chances are this will buy you the time to avoid getting involved. Or at least come up with a reason to really say no.

Who can you try this out on right now?

Asking for feedback can speed your success.

Feedback raises our self-awareness and helps up spot blind spots in our thinking.

If you ask other people for their opinions on how you are handing things, their feedback can help you spot patterns and habits that may be counter productive. And if you take steps to correct the things holding you back, you speed up your progress. Just be careful to seek feedback from someone you trust.

Feedback is the breakfast of champions, have a bowl today.

Some people find fault like there is a reward for it.

Some people will go to extraordinary means to find problems and involve you in them.

We just can’t avoid the fact that some people are just extreme pessimists. But we can avoid getting tangled up with them. Most of the time it is the same people in our lives that bring problems to us. They try to rope you into their mess and pull you down. Avoid these people at all costs, they can only hurt you. And when you sense a new contact is heading in this direction, start to distance yourself right away.

Hide, the pessimists are coming.

Control the conversation for a better outcome.

Generally you have an idea how you would like a conversation to go. Here is how to do it.

If you want a conversation to stay positive, make sure you speak first and set a positive tone, plus add positive body language to support it. In most cases the person you are talking to will follow your lead as to the tone of the conversation. This works on sales calls as well as dealing with ‘grumpy” friends.

Get ready for your next conversation.

Want to ditch someone or something; make a transition in your life.

If you have people or situations hanging on to you that you want to jettison, set up a change in your life. This will give you the opportunity to get those out of your life.

We all have people or situations that seem to follow us around and hang onto use even though we do not want them. That is the time to set up a change in your life that requires new people or situations to be brought in. Shake things up and watch the bad stuff fall away.

Is it time for a shake up in your life?

Don’t let anyone rob you of your “Me” time.

You need “Me” time, no matter how busy or important you are. Take it!

Taking a break for some “Me” time usually invokes a big hunk of guilt. From other people but many times even from yourself. You are not a machine, you need a break. You break down without a break. Sure you are important, but honestly you are not that important that you must ruin your physical and/or mental health.

Cut out some “Me” time today and don’t feel guilty about it.

Nothing is more important that how you feel right now.

Make up your mind that nothing is more important than how I feel now, because now is everything.

I don’t have to tell you the past is gone and the future is not here yet. But I do have to tell you to live in the here and now. Anything else is living in fantasyland. Reliving pain or pleasure from the past is OK in moderation. The same is true for things you anticipate in the future, but after that it is a waste of your present time.

What are you feeling right now?

Connect with someone that is positive and inspiring today.

Actually meeting or talking to someone that is positive and inspiring can be a game changer.

Going through the world surrounded by negative uninspiring people pulls you down no matter how hard you try. The remedy for this is to get out and meet people who pull you up instead of down. It may take a lot of effort to find them. They may not be around you at work or in school or even located near you. You may have to find them on line or even read about them in books. But you need to know they exist in order to fight off the negative influences.

Make it a point to connect with at least one positive person today.

Get real if you want to be happy.

Stop comparing yourself to the fake personas posted on Facebook and other social media.

Research has shown that in general the less time a person spends on social media sites, the happier they tend to be. Facebook is non stop great news channel and we tend to feel inferior to the lives that are portrayed on it. If you get out into the real world and see what is really going on you will have a more balanced view of your life.

Isn’t it time to head out into the real world?
