“Around here we don’t look backwards for very long… we keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things because we’re curious… and curiously keeps leading us down new paths. ” – Walt Disney
May 1 has historically been celebrated…
to honor life and fertility returning to the world – the entrance of spring after the long, cold winter.
So, today is traditionally about newness, moving forward, expansion, prosperity and renewal.
Did you have anything better in mind to do today??
What one area of your life will you consciously choose to approach or regard newly today?
Will you revitalize your plan of utmost contribution to your employer or business, and/or is it finally time for being curious about other options?
Will you re-engage the spice and passion in your relationship, and/or are finding new ways to accomplish that long overdue?
Will you reinstate or elevate your health and fitness goals, and/or explore avenues for even a more optimized body and mind?
Will you review and recommit to the financial plan that gives you peace of mind, and/or find entirely new levels of prosperity to blow up that plan?
Look, today is just a day, like any other day, to open a new door and chart a new path.
Nothing says you have to engage in a new initiative.
But, if you’re still reading this JOLT Note, and you’ve already put time and attention into it, why not have something to show for it in the next 5 minutes?
Keep it simple. Pick something! One thing. Infuse new life and curiosity into it. Open a renew door or chapter…not because it’s May 1, but because you’re simply right now choosing to do so.
I just opened the door. We’re walking, we’re walking, we’re walking…
Got renew door?
“Old ways don’t open up new doors.” – Unknown
