DMJ Podcast: The First Thoughts of the Day…

 The Delivering Marketing Joy Podcast is back!  Our goal here is to attack 2018 with a vengeance!  The Delivering Marketing Joy Podcast will provide some inspiration, motivation and education to make it happen!  Consider this your 10 minute “kick in the pants” to get your week started off right!  This week on the podcast I talk about the challenge that all of us face at some point.  We lose control of our thoughts.  We get swept away.  It’s so important to get control of those thoughts first thing in the morning.  Listen to the DMJ Podcast today to start getting control of those thoughts now.   Even before I open my eyes.  That’s when the thoughts start to rush into my head at full speed.  At that hour, especially before I am paying attention, they are agonizingly stressful. These thoughts talk about what I have not done, what I need to do, how I have failed, and what people think of me.  It’s a constant barrage of negativity.  These thoughts are the seeds of fear and panic. Then I wake up. It’s at this point that my day gets shaped.  At this point I take a breath and search for other thoughts.  These thoughts are usually focused on what I have to do today, the people I will see, the people who I love, the things for which I am grateful.  Different thoughts for sure. This is the moment that determines my day.  Which of these thoughts will I focus on?   It’s my choice.  Just like it’s yours. That wraps up the message from the DMJ Podcast today.  Please make sure you subscribe the DMJ Podcast in iTunes, Soundcloud or wherever you listen.   Oh…and make sure you never miss an update!  Sign up for our VIP newsletter here!
