One heroic week – coming up!

Larry Janesky: Think Daily

Today is Monday.  The first day of a week.  A week is a good block of time and effort and what months and years are made of.  

If you will fiercely prioritize, have the courage to step out of your routine, do things YOU have been afraid to, say things and speak truths you haven’t been saying, and have confidence in yourself, you can make it a landmark week; a slingshot week, and one that will make you feel you are moving forward in your life.

I am going to do this.  Will you?

Trajectory

Larry Janesky: Think Daily

Is the road you’re on going to where you want to go?

Persistence and progress in the wrong direction isn’t going to help.

Do you need to change course and get on a different road?

You are a mentor

Larry Janesky: Think Daily

Many kids won’t listen to their parents because they are their parents.  But they may listen to advice from someone they don’t know very well instead.  Say things to kids that they need to hear.  Tell them the things we think are said, but aren’t said often enough – and to some kids, not at all.  Pick your moments, maintain rapport, and deliver your message of love, optimism, caring, respect, and wisdom.

Connect.  We need your help.

Drugs destroy lives

Larry Janesky: Think Daily

We should talk to kids so much about the ugliness, darkness, and ruin that drugs bring to their users and everyone around to make drugs very scary for them.  They are something to be feared.

I look around and see the lives shattered by both street drugs and many prescription drugs, and it is clear to me that they contain evil.  Let’s talk to kids and show them examples of where drugs lead – so they can learn from others what we don’t want them to learn firsthand.

What do you think?

- if you don’t accept failure.  

Learn quick, adjust your actions, and go at it again.

How do they make you feel?

Larry Janesky: Think Daily

You know how some people make you feel uncomfortable and you don’t want to be around them anymore?  Well, how do you think you make others feel?  Do they want more of you, or less?

Pay attention.  Is it your voice? Your intention? Your mismatching thier body language?

How do you make others feel?

Wake up – and expect things

Families are important

Larry Janesky: Think Daily

If we look around and are honest, we can see that a child needs a mother and a father to grow up healthy and fully actualized.

Whatever we can do to plan for and support complete families, and repair incomplete ones, will help individual family members, the community, and the world in a profound way.

Am I right?

Take a chance

Larry Janesky: Think Daily

Progress involves risk that you will fail, look foolish, or even go backwards.  But not risking anything guarantees that you will not progress.

Try.  Even if it doesn’t work out the first time, keep trying.  

You can do it.
