Mark's Motivation - Daily Thought - 1-5-2021 through 31-5-2021
Updated: Mar 14, 2022
[01/05/2021, 5:04:21 AM] Mark Dickinson: Don't be fooled!
All that glitters is not gold!
Seek not to make money but to add value;
Not to accumulate but to contribute;
Not to get but to give.
Your impact on the world will be eternal. The journey begins right now. Are you ready?
[02/05/2021, 4:06:36 AM] Mark Dickinson: Do you desire more?
Perhaps if you stop and look you will discover that what you have is already an abundance.
Take time to see the good in your life and to experience the blessings you already have.
Be thankful for all that you are and all that you have 🙏
[03/05/2021, 6:23:13 AM] Mark Dickinson: It's much simpler than you think!
[04/05/2021, 5:57:46 AM] Mark Dickinson: Consistency over time produces results.
For many, they begin their journey towards a new goal and somewhere along the way they give up. Their desire for something new takes over and again they start something new, leaving unfinished the previous goal.
Sometimes it's good to let go and move on, however, to produce mature, lasting outcomes it is necessary to persevere beyond emotions and develop the muscles of commitment, dedication and focus to finally attain what we set out to achieve.
[05/05/2021, 5:12:18 AM] Mark Dickinson: Green trees in the desert always amaze me.
There has been almost zero rainfall this year and yet the desert still has green trees.
I need to know why.
I discovered to my amazement that deep beneath the dry dunes lies water.
The tree has a root system that extends down to up to 30 meters and more to get what it needs and therefore is able to thrive even in the most harsh of environments.
What about us?
Should we not do the same?
And you will be a green tree in adverse circumstances.
[06/05/2021, 5:46:08 AM] Mark Dickinson: It's gratitude day!
Actually, every day is gratitude day!
Write down all the things that you are grateful for.
As you go through your day, find someone to share your gratitude with.
Have a thanks filled day 😃
[07/05/2021, 7:39:47 AM] Mark Dickinson: Do you compare yourself to others ?
That's really not a great idea!
You see, you are unique.
You are one-of-a-kind.
There is no one like you.
You are special and your path must needs be yours, and yours alone.
Live your life with confidence...
Have an amazing day!
[08/05/2021, 4:00:11 AM] Mark Dickinson: What does it take to become what you want to be?
1. A clear vision of the future you
2. Knowing why you must become that person
3. Committed to do whatever it takes for as long as it takes until it's done
To truly commit and succeed at becoming what you envisage takes guts, sheer determination and repetition.
I become what I think about!
[09/05/2021, 5:04:43 AM] Mark Dickinson: What should you do if you did not achieve your goal?
Ask great questions.
Try different ways.
Understand that this is a moment for wonderful growth...
[10/05/2021, 3:52:33 AM] Mark Dickinson: Intensify your dream.
Make it so clear in your mind that you can see it, feel it and be it.
Use images, descriptions and even videos to lock in on your desired outcome.
Finally, rewrite your dream every day.
It will happen...
I become what I think about.
[11/05/2021, 6:40:57 AM] Mark Dickinson: Be happy, be thankful...
Remember how blessed you are. Concentrate on all the good things in your life.
Today, consciously select someone and share with them how grateful you are for them being in your life.
[12/05/2021, 7:15:18 AM] Mark Dickinson: Life is beautiful!
Enjoy the unexpected corners one turns...
Think: I can.
Then: work like you can...
And "I can" will become:
I did it!
Dream bigger than you ever have...
Your greatness lies ahead.
[13/05/2021, 5:18:53 AM] Mark Dickinson: It's not our skills and talents that defines us.
It's our choices.
What are yours?
[14/05/2021, 8:12:13 AM] Mark Dickinson: What is your superpower?
If you could choose any superpower what would you choose and why?
I would choose the power to be able to reveal to others the untapped potential within them and the incredible influence for good that they could be if only they would begin, and never give up.
What about you? What is yours?
[15/05/2021, 6:12:22 AM] Mark Dickinson: Nothing is impossible...
Until I make it so!

[16/05/2021, 9:04:58 AM] Mark Dickinson: Take the time to celebrate life.
To enjoy the moment that you are in
Think about all the good things in your life and the blessings that you enjoy.
Celebrate in your own way...
[17/05/2021, 7:46:00 AM] Mark Dickinson: Having a clear objective in mind makes execution so much easier.
Without a destination in mind then anywhere becomes acceptable.
Without a purpose, anything is acceptable.
Change your focus and determine what you really want, stay focused on it and gradually everything will collude to bring your desire to pass.
The more you desire it, the faster it moves.
[18/05/2021, 7:20:39 AM] Mark Dickinson: Raise your expectations and your actions will automatically change...
It's a virtuous circle that just keeps on getting better.
[19/05/2021, 7:03:39 AM] Mark Dickinson: What are you waiting for?
The right opportunity?
The right partner?
The right moment?
There is no better moment than right now!
Today is the best day.
Today is the right moment to go all in...
What if it doesn't work?
But what if it does?
[20/05/2021, 6:12:44 AM] Mark Dickinson: Are you aware of the power of micro growth?
Micro growth is what nature does every single day... look at a mature tree and you will not see it growing, yet every single day it continues to grow. Just a tiny bit. Like finger nails, or your hair. They are continuously growing, yet you do not perceive it.
Then, after some time we suddenly recognize the growth because it is now obvious to see.
How did it happen? The tree, the nails and the hair did not think about growing, they just do it, every day.
The concept of micro growth is that you concentrate on an area of your life over an extensive period of time, and you stick at it. Even though you do not see the growth each day, you keep on doing it every single day. Daily gratitude is a brilliant example. Suppose you write your gratitude down every single day... well over time you will experience massive growth, because each day of micro growth adds up to maturity.
Start something worthy, and never quit.
[21/05/2021, 3:24:44 PM] Mark Dickinson: You get what you focus on... so focus on what you want...
[22/05/2021, 6:47:10 AM] Mark Dickinson: Change is inevitable...
It's not about the change, it's about how you decide to transform yourself as you encounter the changes around you.
[23/05/2021, 6:10:31 AM] Mark Dickinson: An anchor is very small in comparison to the ship, and yet it secures the safety of the entire crew, passengers, cargo and the ship itself.
Anchors are seldom used, and yet they are so vital.
Rituals are like anchors... tiny daily anchors in our lives that will secure us in times of need.
What are your rituals?
How do they secure you?
[24/05/2021, 7:35:12 AM] Mark Dickinson: Life is a constant lesson, however we must be attentive to the teacher or most of what we need to learn will pass us by.
Life will repeat the lesson till it's learned!
[25/05/2021, 7:07:15 AM] Mark Dickinson: Family and friends give great meaning to life.
Today, choose one of your closest and take the time to share how much they mean to you; show them your love.
Have an amazing day!
[26/05/2021, 5:45:31 AM] Mark Dickinson: The most valuable moment in your day is the one you consciously set aside for yourself.
Start every single day with some time to focus yourself on what you want out of this day.
Train yourself to be your first priority. Once you are in top shape you are then able to give to others.
Have a great day
[27/05/2021, 6:48:12 AM] Mark Dickinson: Patient endurance is a rare thing. We live in an instant world where everyone expects everything now!
It doesn't work like that... you must decide what you want, then focus on it every single day.
By time it will become your reality.
If it didn't happen yet, keep on going!
[28/05/2021, 5:39:16 AM] Mark Dickinson: Amazing results naturally bring joy and celebration and erase much of the memory of the challenges overcome along the way.
Consciously celebrate each success in a way that is meaningful so that your mind relates your success to good things and you will automatically find more success.
You become what you think about.
[29/05/2021, 6:27:25 AM] Mark Dickinson: Are you doing what you want to do?
Are you getting what you want?
What you are living and experiencing is a result if where your focus has been.
If you are experiencing a mismatch, then reexamine what you are focused on.
And if you are experiencing what you want, celebrate!
[30/05/2021, 6:16:23 AM] Mark Dickinson: What are your guiding principles?
Setting long term objectives for the next 25 years will create a steadiness of purpose that will produce outstanding results over time.
[31/05/2021, 7:43:45 AM] Mark Dickinson: You must start...
A plan is important... goals are essential. ..
But action is required if anything is to be achieved..
Then once you are moving you can modify and adjust
