30 Days to a Better Man - Day 18

Find your N.U.T.s


30daysbmlogo

An off-shoot of the Core values from Day 1, My Non-negotiable, Unalterable Terms are ;

1. Do the loving thing, speak the loving word to all men and all times, except in life-threatening situations then do the loving thing.

2. My walk with God is my life and every second I live is part of this walk.

3. Take care of my body, the sanctuary that houses me.

4. Do all that is within my power to not have a better yesterday in all facets of my life.

5. Approach all situations and every circumstance with a grateful-and-I'm-winning attitude.

30 Days to a Better Man - Day 13

De-clutter Your Life 


30daysbmlogo

The hard part of this for me has always been maintaining the de-cluttered status in the house particularly with clothes and miscellaneous items.

Its another weekend so will have time for some de-cluttering and I think the tip about removing something from the house when I bring something new in will help.

30 Days to a Better Man - Day 12

Create your Bucket List

30daysbmlogo


Totally subscribe to the bucket list idea. So here goes;

1) Swim with Dolphins

2) Take the next two exams to get the get the certification that allows me to become a consultant

3) Take a walk on a beach at night, I believe doing this with someone will be 100 times more fun.

4) Get a good camera and start taking good pictures.

5) Sponsor at least one kid's/orphan's education

6)  Own my own business

7) Own a farm

30 Days to a Better Man - Day 10

Memorize "If"

Memorizing ;
If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you
But make allowance for their doubting too,
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
Or being hated, don’t give way to hating,
And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise:
If you can dream–and not make dreams your master,
If you can think–and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build ‘em up with worn-out tools:
If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it all on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breath a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: “Hold on!”
If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with kings–nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you;
If all men count with you, but none too much,
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
And–which is more–you’ll be a Man, my son!

Reconnect with an old friend

This is interesting because 4 days ago I decided to get back In touch with 2 old pals. One was to access possibilities of a major alliance going forward ..lol., and the the other was just for old time sake.
One is now done - connection established, and will work on the other in the coming weeks.

30 Days to a Better Man - Day 6

Update your Resume


30daysbmlogo

This has actually been on the agenda before I saw today's task.

I'm working on the next certification on my path and once I pass it calling up my CV company.


So I'll sort of defer this and make sure I do some proper studying this weekend.

30 Days to a Better Man - Day 5

Cultivate your Gratitude

30daysbmlogo

I'm grateful for the bright largely cosmetic and gentle breeze that covered my face on my way home this evening.

Grateful for the nice dinner I had.

Grateful for the resources to prepare said dinner.

Grateful for my bed that can't wait to have me shortly.

Grateful for family.

Grateful for ability to work and the possession of a fully functional brain.

Grateful for the ability to dance 

Grateful for the love and grace that fills my heart.

Grateful for the ability to help people in my own little way.

Grateful for life.

I usually say "thank you" so made a not to say one "concious" one, wasn't quite easy because it's for something that was done mostly in the past. Felt good afterwards too.

30 Days to a Better Man - Day 4

Increase your Testosterone

30daysbmlogo

Okay, because I like surprises I only check the Challenge of the day on that day.

Now imagine the look on my face when I saw the title of today's task. I thought to myself, "Interesting".

You know that feeling you get when you have studied a topic before the lecturer starts on it? Yeah, felt good going through all the "To dos" and found I already did all but the morning sex one. It is with great anticipation that I look forward to ticking this off as soon as the concomitant conditions are fulfilled.

Today, I wore one of the shoes I polished the other day and I felt like a better man ..lol

30 Days to a Better Man - Day 3

Find a Mentor

30daysbmlogo

So, Mentors !

I've got a couple and today's task just has me wondering how to go back to them and say, "so what are we?" or "do you really love me?" or "let's make this official" ..LOLL see where I'm going ?

I've got these Men who I'm comfortable with to a large extent and who I share stuff with depending on the issue dancing around in my head, I see their results and they are very open with me so I trust their judgement and admonition. I won't call or mail or text them today, but I'll make an appointment to see one of them and attempt to ask him "So where do you see this going?"

30 Days to a Better Man - Day 2

Shine your shoes

30daysbmlogo

50:50

So I'm half way through this pair, I guess it's pretty obvious which one has gotten some pampering. While trying to buy polish for another pair I learnt that dark tan is not same as tan. 
It's a good day!

30 Days to a Better Man - Day 1

Define your core values 

Change


This sums me up; every other thing is based on this. And it's all for change in the right direction. #positivegrowth. wonders if growth can be negative..

In terms of improvement, I believe dedication needs some work, I might not be less-dedicated in my heart, but my actions are not the most dedicated, I think. So, here's to Change.
