🧘‍♂️ Pema Chödrön on Your Thoughts

Welcome to Make Daily! This email contains an idea, reflection, and a simple action you can take on your work today.

Idea 💡

“You are the sky. Everything else – it’s just the weather.”Pema Chödrön

Reflection 🤔

It's so easy to identify with the thoughts in our head. If you feel afraid one day, you can begin to believe you're a fearful person. If you feel low energy, you begin to believe you're not a productive person.

These fleeting moments can domino into a big piece of your identity if you're not watching closely.

The good news is that its just the "weather" passing by. Don't let one rainy day make you believe there is no more sunshine to be found.

Action ✅

Where have you let a bad story take over in your thinking? Drop it and move forward today.
