In Speaking with Aloha, articulate your Circle of Influence in your journal.
Said another way, what do you consider to be your current lay of the land and what possibility there can affirm the day’s efforts? Trust me, you DO have influence. How so?
Energize your self-talk: End your journal entry by phrasing it as an “I will___” affirmation which affirms your eagerness and excitement with owning your circle, with the dignity of distinctive demeanor — this will then be part of your personal value immersion with Ho‘ohanohano as well!
Give this just 5 minutes of your morning:

“Proactive people focus their efforts in the Circle of Influence. They work on the things they can do something about. The nature of their energy is positive, enlarging and magnifying, causing their Circle of Influence to increase.”
“Reactive people, on the other hand, focus their efforts in the Circle of Concern. They focus on the weakness of other people, the problems in the environment, and circumstances over which they have no control. Their focus results in blaming and accusing attitudes, reactive language, and increased feelings of victimization. The negative energy generated by that focus, combined with neglect in areas they could do something about, causes their Circle of Influence to shrink.”
