Are You Glad It Is Over Or Did You Develop A Great New Habit?

Thoughts lead on to purposes; purposes go forth in action; actions form habits; habits decide character; and character fixes our destiny.
~ Tyron Edwards

Watch your thoughts; they become words. Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions; they become habits. Watch your habits; they become character. Watch your character; it becomes your destiny. ~
~ Unknown

Habits are to the soul what the veins and arteries are to the blood, the courses in which it moves 
~ Horace Bushnell

Today is the last day of the April 2013 edition of the (UBC) Ultimate Blog Challenge (of which I had the joy and pleasure of being involved).

In thinking about it, there are many, many thoughts, lessons and realizations that I could ponder here, but the one that keeps coming to mind is the one that comes to my mind many, many times in my life when I and many other people experience what is basically the same thing, yet get totally different results, reactions and feelings about it.

This is no different.

For me, being part of the UBC was a great chance to get into a new habit of blogging daily.

In doing so, I actually DID get into the habit of blogging and now that it is a habit, I want to continue it.

Blogging daily has many physical Universe advantages:  it increases your SEO and increases your audience which in turn should increase your leads and possibly clients.

It also increases your collaborations with others and generally is very good for your business on a practical level.

But it is SO much more than that on a mental, emotional and spiritual level.

Any time you improve on one area of your life, that improved vibration carries over and improves all other areas of your life, even if just a little bit.

In addition, everything is ENERGY and as you flow it out---in posting on the blog, sharing it and commenting on other blogs---you allow for that much more to flow into you.

Of course, all of the positive that I've experienced from this is because it actually RAISED my vibration and made me happy to do it.

As I said earlier, it has always amazed me that several people can experience relatively the same thing and get different results.  Well, that is the point.  Not everyone who has participated in this challenge did so with the same thoughts and vibration as myself.

Some are actually relieved it is over. 

They have no intention of continuing.

They did not have the intention or purpose of having this create a more positive habit for themselves.

Some may even still be confused and not really even comprehend why it is they even bothered as it did nothing for them.

You see!

Same experience, different results, reactions and feelings.

And all of that is the direct result of where they are VIBRATIONALLY right now and what it is that they are attracting.

If you participated in the UBC or not, you can learn a lesson from this.  If life is what you want, keep doing what you are doing.

If it is not, this is yet another example of a time to look at things and see how they are to see how you want them to improve and start moving in that direction.

How do you do it?

I wrote for 30 days in this blog to help you with that.  ;-)  Go back and read or re-read some of those posts.  ( check out below for some other things to help you.)

As for me, I plan to continue blogging.

This UBC has really increased my creative flows and I have met some great people, learned a lot of great things, expanded both my business and my awareness, yet again and am thrilled to have been (and to remain) a part of it.

Thank you all.  Thank you especially to Michelle Shaeffer for making this all possible.

  1. Fabulous question Kathy...and I found it a very interesting journey. I had never blogged with any consistency and didn't quite make the daily one AND I've written more than I ever have, which I consider one of the greatest gifts of being in the UBC. That and meeting amazing people like yoU!

    1. MamaRed, I agree. "Meeting" wonderful people like you was the best part!!!

      I really like this new habit I developed.



  2. Love this statement Kathy:
    "Any time you improve on one area of your life, that improved vibration carries over and improves all other areas of your life, even if just a little bit." That's called leveraging!

    1. Thank you Lynn.

      If it so very interesting as whenever I write that or something like it, people love it. With several of my coaching clients that is their favorite quote of mine.



      P.S. I love leverage! :-)

  3. Congratulations to everyone who completed the Ultimate Blog Challenge. I am excited that I accomplished my goals and definitely increased my creativity and decreased my anxiety around blogging. I don't think I will continue to blog daily but I will blog at least 3 times a week which is an additional day from last year.

  4. Congratulations to everyone who carried through and completed the UBC! Kathy, everything you said resonates with me. The experience has been overwhelmingly positive and exciting. My list of benefits is as long as yours with unexpected learnings with over the top energy and heightened awareness on so many levels.

    The biggest reward for me is FUN! The FUN that comes from interacting with such a generous community and the feeling of successfully caring through.

    Thanks for a great post!

    1. Deb,

      I totally agree! It is FUN! That is why I want to continue!!!



  5. I didn't blog every day, but I still got so much out of the challenge! It was a great way to be introduced to other blogs, and as my blog was brand new at the challenge beginning, it was a great motivator to get feedback and comments from Day 2 of my blog's life!

    And also meeting so many other fabulous bloggers - some in my own niche - has been great, just for community building.

    1. Angie,

      I agree, it is a great experience and was fun.



  6. The April challenge has been a super discipline-builder. Let's hope we can capture some of the momentum for future months.
    Congratulations on finishing the April event! Stopping in from the Ultimate Blog Challenge.

    1. Thanks Linda. It was good and a whole lot of fun. :-)
