    #4 Hi Jared! Thanks for your comment! I am too curious about this Miracle Morning, it sounds wonderful. You should most definitely try to use the App more... at least daily I would suggest, even for 5-10 minutes to start.. I know it sounds like a lot, but you will most likely start to enjoy it so it becomes a pleasure. Like going in and out of a Jacuzzi on a cold day.... soooooooo amazzzzzing. I find that now, I get the urge to meditate more than once a day, but time and daily duties restricts me. In a perfect world, I suppose! ;-)

    I use this meditation and have given it to thousands I have worked with.

    Say "I let got of everything"

    Repeat these words until your body takes over the breathing and then tel yourself.

    "I go into the void of my mind to learn what I need to know right now."

    This creates a calm space for you to be shown things that will aid you in dealing with life better and in less stressful ways getting the guidance form within.

    Animated Book Review of
    The Miracle Morning - 6 Habits to Create A Successful Morning Routine - Hal Elrod

    Published on Sep 8, 2016 by Practical Psychology

    The Miracle Morning, written by Hal Elrod is a great book to teach you how to create the most successful morning routines and habits you can possibly cultivate. Using the steps and life SAVERS that Hal implements in his mornings can help you wake up refreshed and happy to start your day. Try to avoid the rearview mirror syndrome (RMS) and isolating incidents. A previous experience in life preventing us from making new ones is what RMS is all about. Someone who can’t commit to a new relationship because a previous one went awry. By isolating an event of today, you’re affecting who you are as a person in a whole. For example, you may think you can skip that workout today, but in reality, if you do it everyday, then you would be someone who doesn’t workout at all. So as a review, try to start your morning with some meditation, affirmations and visualizations, some exercise, a bit of reading and finish it with some writing and eventually you’ll develop miracle mornings which will transform your whole day and essentially your entire life. These 6 simple morning habits can and will transform your whole mind and will start the momentum of a super successful lifestyle.

    #17 Would you not say that 13 embodies the other 12? Also would you not declare that Covey expanded on the same Franklin 13?

    In my mind this is the reasons for our social ills of today. We have the 12 B. Franklin list and have dropped 13. Not a thumper but sense we are looking to foulable man for guidance.

    When Covey is lined up with Ben Franklin's number 13 then it comes alive in a whole new way.

    Here's another take on end game meets proactivity: Benjamin Franklin having 13 virtues he'd mark as deficient for each daily offense.

    #12 Yep, that's it. Outcome (end game), Purpose (why), Action (massive!).

    For the vacation, drinks, etc... I think we're back to Covey. Habit 7 ;)
    Or maybe better, Tolle's Now :) But he'd probably say don't worry about the past (goals made) or future (end games planned).

    And Robbins was never good at taking breaks or the REAL end game called fulfillment... Until more recently, I'd say.
    If you get a chance, watch "l am not your guru" documentary about Robbins' "end game" work.

    Brilliant discussion. Thanks, Harvey!

    I think the act of circle of influence is for you to conduct yourself or react to an outside stimulus in either a predictable or unpredictable way.

    #11 Follow up. I don't see that Covey's work had a shortcoming, but rather it is difficult to discuss the design of effective folks without some structure. The structure is a compromise as different personalities will see strengths in different aspects of the work.

    Covey implied that Begin with the End in Mind is a key to the whole of the Habits. If you are trying to get somewhere. If you like where you are and have no need to grow or move forward the habits are pretty useless. But them the second law of thermodynamics kicks in. Everything is in a state of decay.

    But here again it is left to the reader/listener to wholly understand the symbiotic relationship with all habits. You can't separate them. It would be like saying one gear in a watch is more important than the other when the goal is to tell accurate time.

    #11 Had to look up OPA, not a Robbins fan.

    But yes Outcome, End Game, goal, purpose. If its worth your energy its worth having these in place and declared.

    Just to be clear though. Not everything has an end game. Vacation, drinks at the local bar, and other non directional activities are where i enjoy no end game. Those who wish to talk end game need to run away from me. I have none and don't want to talk about it either.

    #10 Oh, man, Harvey... Now I get where you are coming from.

    That led me to Tony Robbins. What you are saying is hus OPA!

    #9 I believe we are saying the same thing here. I guess i have seen folks who were totally over run with very proactive efforts that went nowhere. Great people great things they did, but served no one.

    An assumption in this discussion is that all habits are important and require a deep understanding. Specifically the ones you discussed surrounding dependance.

    Given this i have alway thought, beginning with the end in mind is the center piece.

    If we are to pour our energy into something, what would success look like?

    I find many folks who work hard but are disappointed in the outcome. I ask what they expected and the answer is typically, not this.

    The whole dependant/independence/interdependence discussion is one that i sense colleges should pick up on and deliver. All the great skills and life lessons will fail if we can't grasp this concept.

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts i find the human dynamic and its ability/inability to function fascinating.
    Jared Wiese
    14/11/2016 #9 Jared Wiese
    #8 Covey's order was extremely important, purposeful and explicit. In short, you can't be interdependent and reach the end game that I think you are talking about (or even win-win) without the 1st three habits of independence... which all starts with proactivity.

    Proactivity is not towards the end game, it is the game, now. We can do something in every moment instead of being a victim or thinking we cannot get to an "end game". But if we still have that view or paradigm, we will never get to any end game. Without proactivity, all other habits stop.

    Habit 1's energy comes from saying "No" to Circle of Concern areas. To focus in the moment, now, on your Circle of Influence so that we can, as you say, place our proactivity sparingly. I agree, we have only so much to give. We would do well to give well (Influence) than poorly to many (Concern).

    I disagree on Stimulus/response being about Habit 5: Seek first to understand. Better communications (inTERdependence) and Synergy (Habit 6) can only come after we have matured/reached/achieved INdependence through the first 3 habits, building on each.


    I agree on Habit 2, it can be efficient to review only the why enough to understand the next steps, else it could quickly get to analysis paralysis.
    Both of your questions for employees and managers has built on proactivity and now into Habit 2.

    In dealing with others, inTERdependence, I agree the most important habit is #5. But again, in terms of goals you needed to first ask others questions that focused on habit #1, #2 ... up to #5.

    There's a great picture in Covey's Daily Reflections book that shows the Seven Habits Maturity Continuum - how they all build and relate.
    Harvey Lloyd
    14/11/2016 #8 Harvey Lloyd
    #6 Covey offered an order to things that i think is important. Some order is in the manner he gave the habits some implied.

    Proactivity is towards the end game. Stimulus response theory as presented by Covey asks us to Seek first to understand. Implying better communications towards the end game.

    Being proactive for me is seeing things as they are and working through them. I need not understand the "why" as much as "how" to get past. I will review the why enough to understand the next steps only.

    One of my crazy questions for employees and managers is, where are going with this? Clearly they are being pasionately proactive about something, i want to know where you are going.

    They usually hate this as they know me now. My follow up question is always, how does this help/impact/or change our end game?

    I place my proactivity sparingly. I have but so much to give. I would rather give well than poorly to many.

    Covey's habits require energy, they are somewhat unnatural and require us to use our brain. We have but so much energy that we can give in the course of our existence. Choose wisely.

    The most important habit? Seek First to understand and then to be understood. From this we can find an end game, be proactive with in it and share the journey with others.

    I guess I am still trying to understand your point,
    "The whole of the habits focus us on the end game that you seek. Proactive is to the "end" you have determined.
    ...
    We can be proactive in areas that have no bearing on the end game."

    As this seems to contradict, "Being proactive in change because you are against something is not an end game."


    Could the end game simply be I want to be a more principled person... to do the right thing in the hard moments?


    "But do be careful with this concept, you will become the accidental leader."

    Please explain!

    http://www.stephencovey.com/blog/?tag=be-proactive

    Most Important Habit?

    "...Habit 1: Be Proactive provides the foundation for all the other habits. Habit 1 is, undoubtedly, the foundation for leadership at home or at work because it begins with the mindset “I am responsible for me, and I can choose.”All the other habits are dependent upon being proactive and choosing to master and practicing principle-centered living.

    The key to being proactive is remembering that between stimulus and response there is a space. That space represents our choice— how we will choose to respond to any given situation, person, thought or event. Imagine a pause button between stimulus and response—a button you can engage to pause and think about what is the principle-based response to your given situation. Listen to what your conscience tells you. Listen for what is wise and the principle-based thing to do, and then act.
    "


    IOW, my paradigm is that it is about the right, principled thing to do - in the moment - not necessarily based on some goal. Closing the gap, practively, on stimulus and response.

    The stimulus/response thing comes from Viktor Frankl. Covey came across the idea in 1969 - long before writing the 7 Habits, but never wrote down the author. It was the impetus for writing the 7 Habits!



    @Harvey Lloyd, you got me thinking and digging ;) This site seems to put it all in good context:

    Harvey Lloyd
    14/11/2016 #5 Harvey Lloyd
    #4 I agree. We all come from some pedigree, regardless of which side of the tracks you hail.

    Our brains and circumstances can only handle but so much in this fast paced world. The brain will parse information for you when you overload it, or you can be proactive and tell your brain this is the end game i wish to accomplish.

    Being proactive within an overloaded brain of circumstances is pretty much the same thing as being reactive.

    But do be careful with this concept, you will become the accidental leader.
    Jared Wiese
    14/11/2016 #4 Jared Wiese
    #2 (reply 2)
    More, on the same site...

    "Habit 1: Be Proactive is about taking responsibility for your life. You can't keep blaming everything on your parents or grandparents. Proactive people recognize that they are "response-able." They don't blame genetics, circumstances, conditions, or conditioning for their behavior. They know they choose their behavior. Reactive people, on the other hand, are often affected by their physical environment. They find external sources to blame for their behavior. If the weather is good, they feel good. If it isn't, it affects their attitude and performance, and they blame the weather. All of these external forces act as stimuli that we respond to. Between the stimulus and the response is your greatest power--you have the freedom to choose your response. One of the most important things you choose is what you say. Your language is a good indicator of how you see yourself. A proactive person uses proactive language--I can, I will, I prefer, etc. A reactive person uses reactive language--I can't, I have to, if only. Reactive people believe they are not responsible for what they say and do--they have no choice.

    Instead of reacting to or worrying about conditions over which they have little or no control, proactive people focus their time and energy on things they can control. The problems, challenges, and opportunities we face fall into two areas--Circle of Concern and Circle of Influence.

    Proactive people focus their efforts on their Circle of Influence. They work on the things they can do something about: health, children, problems at work. Reactive people focus their efforts in the Circle of Concern--things over which they have little or no control: the national debt, terrorism, the weather. Gaining an awareness of the areas in which we expend our energies in is a giant step in becoming proactive."


    To your point, what guides us in our proactivity? I think Covey would say principles or values, not just predetermined

    Take a look at https://www.stephencovey.com/7habits/7habits-habit1.php.
    The first paragraph would seem to make your point. Specifically, the "it is carefully designed by you" part and context:

    "Your life doesn't just "happen." Whether you know it or not, it is carefully designed by you. The choices, after all, are yours. You choose happiness. You choose sadness. You choose decisiveness. You choose ambivalence. You choose success. You choose failure. You choose courage. You choose fear. Just remember that every moment, every situation, provides a new choice. And in doing so, it gives you a perfect opportunity to do things differently to produce more positive results."

    If you would allow me to add to the "proactive" approach definition @Jared Wiese...

    The whole of the habits focus us on the end game that you seek. Proactive is to the "end" you have determined.

    Given this broader definition "Effective People" retain focus on the end game by setting forth proactive goals, synergies and reinforcements. While discouraging reactiveness.

    We can be proactive in areas that have no bearing on the end game.. Being proactive in change because you are against something is not an end game.

    Thanks for the reminder that proactivity needs direction and the fine line between reactive.

    My dogs have been my alarm clock for years and getting out early for a walk is peaceful and awakening at the same time. I personally find that I feel like I am pampering myself to dive back under the covers when we come back inside and do a little meditation. I also find that the times when I can take a nap provide a burst of energy in the afternoon for focusing.

    #23 Jared, there are many research studies to support the impact gratitude has on physical and emotional well-being. I'd start with Robert Emmons ( http://emmons.faculty.ucdavis.edu ) and Martin Seligman ( https://positivepsychologyprogram.com/who-is-martin-seligman/ ).

    #21 #22 Dr. @Melissa Hughes, any research you can cite on threees?!
    Richard Buse
    01/11/2016 #22 Richard Buse
    #21 Three is a wonderful number. It's large enough to be meaningful and have impact,, but small enough to be manageable and memorable. Because it's also an odd number, it eliminates the side by side comparisons that accompany a pair of items.

    WOW, Dr. Hughes! What an amazing, science-based, insightful article. It has so much great information in it that I will need to refer to it often!

    Some of my favorite takeaways:
    "Dopamine is the reward chemical, but... is also what sends your brain into what neuroscientists call the virtuous cycle."

    "your brain also produces oxytocin when you experience gratitude... the key: the body's natural baseline for oxytocin is almost zero. We don't automatically produce it; we need a stimulus."

    "A genuine expression of gratitude to someone else gives your brain a bigger reward than the person you thank!"

    "The outlook you choose determines whether you’ll get stuck in the virtuous cycle or the vicious cycle. The only way to get out of the vicious cycle is to intentionally point your brain in the other direction." Indeed the "confirmation bias" is a self-fulfilling prophecy!


    I saw a reference to the study by Robert Emmons, but you summed it up so much better! I am, indeeed, doing a like, comment and share.


    Further, you suggested we ' take a moment - every single day - to look for reasons to say "thank you." '. I came up with a way to do just that.
    I would be delighted if you would take a look:

    @Melissa Hughes - I will chime in with the same sentiments as other comments because it is true, I am grateful for this buzz and the work you do to in this area! I really love what Brother David Steindl-Rast says: "Gratefulness is mindfulness that is interactive." Being grateful somehow stirs connection to all that is.

    Thanks for sharing this @Melissa Hughes. I list three things to be grateful for every morning. For me, the long-term impact I see every day is observing my Dad, who's approaching his 90th birthday. He's faced far more hardship than I ever have, but he's always found ways to be grateful and generous. I cannot help but wonder how much his outlook has to do with his longevity and relative good health.

At my different jobs they had to learn that when they see Pam walking down the hall (ignoring anyone she passes) or outside, leave her alone because when she comes back...eureka! :-) One time I never made it out of my office before I did an immediate about face, it was so quick the team's new assistant thought I had lost my mind.

    @Paul Kearley, it sounds like you and @Laura Mikolaitis have a lot in common in terms of running to clear your head. I'm not a runner, but I find that if I take a vigorous hike, I can stop my gerbil-mind from spinning for a little while and figure out my next steps. Of course, sometimes you have to give yourself a little time to be frustrated, sad, angry, before you can move on to action and problem-solving. Great reminder here. Close

    #6 @Pamela L. Williams yes, I had heard that. Funny thing, as long as I can remember, whenever I feel out of sorts, I find an old tree (preferably a pine) and I put my whole back against it including the back of my head and I meditate, feeling the strength of the tree and I just listen. I am amazed at some of the ideas I have taken from this meditation/listening time. Yeah, I know. weird. But, for me, it seems to work.

    Paul, know when to say when was the hardest lesson for me to learn. An interesting note about trees. For a long time scientists believed trees were stand-alone, self reliant. It's only been more recently that they've learned that plants have what you might call an Internet in which the cables are actually a fungus that grows on the roots and through this fungus the trees are communicating with other plants. A literal plant communication network that tells the trees when something is amiss and allows the tree to react accordingly. Nothing lives, works, or just exists in isolation. It's when we think we do that we stop listening to the signals telling us something is amiss. That is when those heavy, hard objects come flying at us! You might say the fungus among us is trying to tell us to chill out!

    "I had even put off going for my daily runs, which usually helped me to clear my head and put things in perspective."

    So many parallels here. As such, am sharing to the following hives as in the order of your discovery:
    - The Miracle morning (https://www.bebee.com/group/themiraclemorning) for the routine of exercising daily to clear yourself in so many ways,
    - Eckhart Tolle (Eckhart Tolle) for the Power of Now and using stillness to connect with nature, and
    - Habits of Highly Effective People (https://www.bebee.com/group/habits-of-highly-effective-people) for Covey's paradigm shifts of proactivity and "Circle of Influence".

    @Paul Kearley, this is a truly inspiring post and one that I can relate to. I've descended into that abyss on more than one occasion and if it not for the nudge of my husband telling me to "go for a run" and the winds of nature accepting me with open arms, it would have been much more difficult to climb out. I've learned (and believe I am a work in progress) that we all need those moments of reassessing where we are at the present moment. I believe that when we fall into that abyss it is so that when we finally climb out, we climb out stronger and with new perspective. Kudos to you for recognizing and accepting the opportunity to start again. We need the reset button from time to time. As for viewing problems as challenges, I couldn't agree more. It makes all the difference in how we approach them.

    I didn't get past the first paragraph Paul before I nailed you as a fellow introvert. I recognize those emotions and thankfully, like yours, my wife knows when I need to recharge the emotional batteries with some alone time. Your epiphany was important... perspective of facts, not emotions, is how you need to frame things.

    In the meantime, while you are practicing your newfound wisdom, perhaps you could order one of these shirts. https://www.lookhuman.com/design/57638-sorry-i-cant-right-now-im-busy-introverting?aff_sub=TnL5HPStwNw

    We all struggle at various times. I've heard of it described like a waves - many highs and many lows. It will get better!

    You might also check out The Miracle Morning (https://www.bebee.com/group/themiraclemorning) hive's articles. The idea there is to make more time, first thing in the morning, and do as many of the following as possible: silence/meditation, affirmations, visualizations, exercise, reading and journaling.

    - a section on The Magic and Value of Questions (Goldsmith)
    - how to get the Goldsmith's 32 questions (see Want All 32 Questions?!)
    - why the 32 might help (although, like you, I'm thinking it is probably overkill ;)
    - WHY each of the questions is important (see Here are the morning questions and their reasoning) - especially the Gratitude one
    - an Example Template with brief prompts
    - a little more on motivation from the likes of Robbins and Oprah
    - A lot more on Making the Routine a Habit

    In every one of his interviews, he asks about morning routines. He has gone into detail on his morning journal and major journaling (note taking) habits. I believe he said he has a bookshelf wall of journals. Then I believe he started mainly using Evernote.

    Check out http://www.inc.com/tim-ferriss/the-best-tools-and-apps-to-boost-your-productivity-in-2016.html - in which he mentions both the Journal and Evernote.

    #4 I really appreciate you taking the time to read and comment on my post and I think your comments are very important. It is my believe that everyone has faith and I agree that there are 2 kinds of faith. I often describe them as Affective Faith and Effective Faith. Affective faith is an overall confidence and trust in things as they are. Such as your semi truck example. Effective faith is more of a giving thing to whatever divinity it is that you believe in. I think there is room for both and, at the end of the day, acknowledging that, despite our beliefs in divinity of some sort, we all navigate this world with a heavy amount of faith.

Faith the air "You breath" will be there for your kids, Faith in the doctor slicing open your child, knows what He is doing, MOST I GO ON? When the time comes for you, Embrace the pain, or open you Heart to GOD? GODBLESS

    Reading your post sounded like you have penned down prized precepts for understanding and bettering lives.

    Indeed, every person lives his/her own life...and there's fate whose content remains unknown. But, by getting inspiration from others and learning from our past follies, we have to live our present, with conscience, stability and patience. With every hardship, there comes ease. With every cheery moment, we have to be grateful unto the Almighty Lord. And perseverance in pain is prized beauty.

    Very inspiring dear Gary! You truly are mind over matter. Magic is all in the mind. For thoughts become things. Here's something from recent memory that resonates with it all...I was out of town last week with Dad, his childhood friend and my bro in law on some work of my Dad's childhood friend. We travelled to Bangalore and back. I remember him from the time I was 4, almost 45 years ago. 25 years ago, he developed Parkinsons...and has been battling it ever since. Tooth and nail. He is around 74 now. Trembles all the time...can't hold a glass of water or a cuppa by himself. But his mind is razor sharp and he plans meticulously, though he tends to be overbearingly repetitive. Walks 4 kms morning and 5 kms evening everyday...been doing it for years. Invests in properties and sell them to builders and makes enough to add to things. He amazes me with his tenacity and sense of purpose and his self-discipline in his daily routine. Isn't that magic!

    I've been thinking hard how to respond to this and have written comments only to delete them. I believe the power comes from within and you have that power. I don't. If I was diagnosed like you were, I would probably sit around and let rigidity take me, and I'd be OK with that mainly because I feel I've had my lifetime share of living life to the fullest. Now obviously this is hypothetical. Who knows. I too might have some semblance of your power. What I do know is that you are an inspiration to all the fighters out there.

    #9 exactly, spells and incantations are "just" Words.. but the right words in the right order at the right time have power on the right people. This is proven on bebee every day.

    Dear Gary sharpe,Your simplicity is an ultimate sophistication.The magic of words lies in its simplicity,they often provide audiences with a vivid picture of what you are trying to say or do.When you reveal yourself telling your story or telling something about yourself in a simple way'you can easily not only get others acceptance but also can change their perception.Words sometimes become vivid and powerful like metaphors or analogies because you use them in such a big way that create an intimacy between you and the reader.Big long words mean little things and big things often use little words .Look how powerful are names like HP,IBM,GM and recently beBee,People don't like to be locked in by a sugar coated words that hide facts.it's far better to be simple ,honest and direct to stick in people's mind.If you are going to change something ,change your perception and the way your mind and body work.

    @Gary Sharpe- you asked me if I believe in the power of words. Now, I have the proof reading your buzz and finding myself acting by the power of your words. I shared, liked and now commenting. You have many similarities with me such as your writing THinking Patterns. I wrote recently a buzz on Patterns ARe the Mirrors of Future. I totally agree with you.
    I loved these extracts from your buzz:
    What we have is Dogma, Ingrained Thinking, Fear of the Unknown, Myopic Perspectives, Unacceptance, Self-Inflicted Unawareness.
    Friends, us Humans were never, ever meant to Live without Magic in our lives. Trapping ourselves in the Mundane is precisely what is slowly Killing us.

    You remind me of a buzz that I intend to write soon on how the flytrap plant taps an insect and how we should trap what is benefit o us and how o do that. Only if we appreciate what we still yet don't know.

    Thanks for sharing this beautiful buzz.
