Goal setting thoughts

Aside from clear, measurable goals, how you move through life is important, I think. When thinking about what’s important for me, I go to the things below… I’d love to hear your thoughts about what’s important for you!

-be the change. a simple mantra, but a tremendously valuable truth. You’d like to make the world into a better place? Let ALL your actions be in line with that. No use to complain about what could be better. Do what you can to fix it. I also like to call this getting (or staying) in the drivers seat.

Loose shoelace

This blog was written because of a loose shoelace. And yet, it’s not in the walking category but in growth. That’s because a loose shoelace can be quite important. For running but also for general life, in personal development and growth.

Going for a nice run takes some effort in the beginning. Especially if you’re running early in the morning. Take a minute to wake up, warm up, start going and you’ll have a nice rhythm going IMG_20160807_201036before you know it. But if your shoe unlaces just as you’re starting your run?

S is for Scribing

In this miniseries I’ll be talking each week about one of the stages of the Miracle Morning SAVERS!

This time it’s up to Scribing

The last part of the SAVERS is consists of writing. And there are of course a lot of things to write, books, grocery lists or maybe a letter to the one you love. But in the Miracle Morning they cover this last S with Journaling. Now a lot of people have kept a journal or a diary at one point in their lives, or at least they tried. But it’s not as easy as you’d think in reality, is it?

A is for Affirmation

In this miniseries I’ll be talking about the stages of the Miracle Morning SAVERS!

This week I’d like to discuss the A of Affirmations.

It’s one of the parts that took some getting used to in the beginning. You take an affirmation from the Miracle Morning book or right one yourself. Then it’s just of daily repetition. You make yourself believe that what your telling yourself is or will be the truth! What was hard for me was saying out loud what you would like to happen in the future. For the down to earth Dutch guy that I am this was a bit of a struggle:-)

S for Silence

In this miniseries I’ll be talking each week about one of the stages of the Miracle Morning SAVERS!

Today it’s all about the first S. The first S stands for Silence. You can interpret that in a number of

ways. For example literally spending some time in silence. A quiet moment before you start your

(busy) day. In that moment there are no stimuli, and no need to run or hurry, the only things there

are you and silence. Even if you just get 10 minutes of silence, it’ll make a great difference during the day!
