How to fill your cup every day

It's 4am and I am going to go walk and workout. But before the sweat, I always try to read at least 30 minutes in the morning. I gain inspiration for the day, something to think about while I exercise. This morning I read from Bryan Flanagan's book Now go sell somebody something. Bryan is one of those guys who really could sell ice to an Eskimo...Pay attention to what Bryan says about LOVE in this excerpt from the book:

“You can fill your cup with all the good things that each sales day offers if you will just take the time to LEARN, LAUGH, and LOVE.

There is always something else to LEARN or to improve upon in the field of selling. Perhaps it’s how to listen more effectively, better manage or network. School is never out for pros!

LAUGHter is the shortest distance between two people. Find your laughing place. “What lies at the bottom of the ocean and twitches? A nervous wreck!” Don’t become one. Don’t take yourself too seriously.

LOVE may not make the world go round, but it does make the trip worthwhile! Love is the most talked about but least understood subject. Here are some absolutes you can count on: Love is patient and kind, love is not jealous, it does not brag, and it is not proud. Love patiently accepts all things. It always hopes and always remains strong.”

Everyone who attends my training course gets this book for free as a gift from me. I think it is the single most powerful tool to start your day off positive. I read from Bryan's book daily.
I also read the Bible and the newspaper daily so I can see what both sides are up to. Zig Ziglar gets credit for that one.. - how true.

Remember the three L's and everything will be fine.


Fill your cup early and often and enjoy today. Live in the moment. Laugh at yourself , Love always...Until you learn to be happy today, you will never be happy tomorrow.
The cool thing about life is every day is really a clean slate - make today count. Do something for someone without anyone knowing about it. Be gracious and grateful.
