7 Inspirational Nuggets to Help You Win This Week – Tome 16

This week, I touch on discipline, action, authenticity, forgiveness, focus, service, and purpose.

Make this a memorable week.

Nugget 1

If you do it, do it.

Whatever you have on your to-do list, get it done. Once you’ve established that something must get done, no more hesitation; get the job done. Starting and stopping over and over again wastes time and energy. You delay your progress by working with a “lax” hand. You know what you must do; just do it. You’ve decided to do it; now, follow through.

Nugget 2

“Action” is the vehicle that takes you from start to finish.

The only way you reach your goals is by taking consistent actions. Knowing your destination is vital, but not enough; you must also drive there. And it’s “action” that carries you from where you are to where you want to be (i.e., your goal). If you’re not progressing at the speed you want, it’s perhaps because you’re not taking the proper actions that would bring you to your destination faster.

Nugget 3

You’re at your best when you’re authentic.

In the feature film of your life, you don’t have to play someone else’s part. You don’t have to act like someone else. What the world needs is you: the real you. Despite the forces pressuring you to wear masks and adorn “personas,” strive to be yourself. You shine brightest when you are yourself—unapologetically. “Don’t try too hard; just be who you are.

Nugget 4

Holding grudges pollutes the soul.

Your life is too precious for you to let other people’s mistakes and meanness spew venom into your heart. By letting go of grudges, you protect yourself from the damaging effects of unforgiveness. It’s not always easy to let go when you’ve been hurt or wronged. However, you must strive to keep your heart pure by dealing with the hurts, resentment, and anger others may have caused.

Nugget 5

Your ability to remove all distractions and focus single-mindedly on your target will skyrocket your results and set you apart.

‘Focus’ is the name of the game. Focusing your attention and efforts on most valuable things while ignoring the rest is the key to achieving remarkable results. Seek to become proficient at removing distractions from your environment and life. Your results are directly impacted by your ability to do this. Sharp focus gives you the edge.

Nugget 6

Don’t go through life asking, ‘What’s in it for me?’ Ask, ‘How can I add value to other people’s lives?’

Life is more about ‘giving’ than it is about ‘getting.’ Wherever you go, seek to be a source of blessing for the people you come in touch with. You have much to offer. There are so many ways you can add value to other people’s lives. You just have to want to do so. Give your time. Give your talents. Give your attention. Give your resources. Give your wisdom. Whatever you do, give.

Nugget 7

You’re here for a reason. You’re here for a season. Make the most of every moment.

Regardless of the backstory of your birth, you were not born by accident; you’re here for a reason. You have a role to play in the story of humanity and a contribution to make in the lives of others, and you’re granted a short sliver of time to make your difference. You’re on a race against the clock. It’s your time. Don’t miss your moment.
