Morning Cup of Joe – August 20, 2011 (Weekend Edition)

No one should know what’s going on inside your house, especially if they’re standing on the outside.

When you look at some people you can tell exactly what they are going through. Indeed some people are interested in the attention they may attract and others fall into the category of “misery loves company”. Wearing your feelings outwardly is obviously done at your discretion. The issue comes when you allow those feelings to dictate your actions or in-actions for that matter. For some strange reason, the opinions of others matter to us and many of us live our lives based on this premise. That is something you must work on eliminating from the equation. What others think should not matter to you but it still shouldn’t prevent you from striving to be your best at all times.

Wearing feelings outwardly is only one piece of this puzzle; another vital piece is your appearance. It is critically important that you look the part. Fake it ‘til you make it simply means look like you already have that which you are seeking and it will appear into your life more willingly. Please be clear, I’m not saying “perpetrate” or try to be something you are not. I am saying; take pride in your appearance. I remember my father saying; “It doesn’t matter how much money you have in your pocket, you need to look like you have a million dollars somewhere.” Wiser words were never spoken.

The final piece to the puzzle is your words. There is so much power in the spoken word. Your words are so powerful in fact that they can cut deeply and heal a broken heart simultaneously. What you say to yourself or your self-talk dictates how you interact and impact the world around you. Speak confidence into your life. Do not wait for others to compliment you, walk in the understanding that all God’s children are beautiful. What you show to the world is exactly what you can expect to attract back into your life.

Remember this; you only have one chance to make a first impression, make every moment count.

To The Top!
