In September remember to…
DO YOUR BEST
Goal for the Month:
Pick a task, even a small one, and give it all you’ve got!
TODAY, I practice my habit to DO MY BEST
Kids are going back to school and vacation traffic is winding down. It’s time to anchor our resolve to do well, start fresh, and begin again. This month’s celebration color is “Award” GOLD.” Whenever I see the color GOLD, I remember that my life and what I do with it each day is important. Whenever I see GOLD, I also remember the GOLDEN RULE.
Optimistic and positive gold, adds richness and warmth to everything—it illuminates and enhances everything. It is associated with higher ideals, wisdom, understanding and enlightenment. It inspires knowledge, spirituality and a deep understanding of the self and the “soul.”
We’ve heard it said that “Rome wasn’t built in a day.” Starting something difficult or new is a great time to remember that. Writing this book, for instance, has been a glorious adventure in joy and in perseverance! It takes lots of patience and lots of practice to just “hang in there.” Minutes become monuments one at a time.
Appreciation is the best reward for a job well done. There is a definite “force” in supportive words that transfer energy to the mind. Use the inspirational short stories offered every day in September to inspire you to “Do Your Own Best.” In September, we celebrate our contemporaries and people down through the centuries who have contributed the best of themselves to us and to the world we share.

Share Your Stories and Ideas

This revolution of good habits will grow because you act on the habits and because you have good ideas for spreading the 12 habits too. As an example, one dentist displayed monthly habits posters.. on the ceiling over his patients - and changed them each month. How COOL is that?? Share YOUR stories and ideas with us and we’ll feature them on the website so others can benefit from your sharing.
