Life Giving Light

Light is cheerful and comforting, and it even helps ensure our physical and mental health. What if you had 5 keys to “shine the light” on how to achieve a dream, learn a new habit, or complete a huge task? Recall the power of L-I-G-H-T and apply these 5 keys to success to achieve the results you hope for:

1. List what you want to change – describe in writing the vision of your preferred future (how will your situation improve after you’ve taken action in the present). Most people believe Thomas Edison invented the electric light bulb- not true! He envisioned a day when even ordinary people could enjoy safe, long-lasting light. Then he labored for years to make that dream possible.

2. Investigate options and obstacles, perceived or real. This awareness can get you unstuck and help you make wise decisions. As for Edison, he was aware of several hurdles to over-come, such as the need for delivering safer and more stable electricity to neighborhoods in order for electric lights to be practical for everyday use. He then focused his attention and resources to find solutions. Edison invented 7 system elements in all to make long-lasting and safe home light bulb use a reality.

3. Go! What’s the first step you must take, and the next one tomorrow? Talking, planning and good intentions mean nothing if you don’t take action.

4. Help makes a discernable difference. Whereas you may be able to tackle most any project alone, progress comes more quickly with help. Even Edison was not alone– he had a whole team working on his projects, the "Edison's Pioneers.” The old adage remains true, ‘Two are better than one because they have a good return for their work; if one falls the other is there to help him/her up. Pity the one who falls and has no one to help him/her get back up.’

5. Time is both an investment and a cost. Recognize that anything worth achieving takes time. The good news is that time is often saved with the right resources – people, systems, tools or materials. If you are pressed for time it may be wise - and in the long run a cost savings - to pay a professional to help you plan and prepare, or to provide hands-on help for a project that you may or may not be fully equipped to complete alone and in a timely fashion.

Enjoy your life – walk with LIGHT. For more information on how to turn intention into action, or to hire Sandy Lawrence to inspire to your group, call 404-939-1569.
