"Look out for number one" ~idk. We are desperately in need of understanding when it comes to sayings like this. The human heart was specifically designed to feel it's best when it is giving freely of itself to others... nothing feels better. Therefore, the best way to look out for number one is to intelligently put the welfare of others ahead of my own. The goal for today: make sure that the person right in front of me, that needs my help, is number one! Have a great day everybody!
"There is nothing that can be done by any form of psychotherapy that cannot be better done by the Practice of the Presence of God" ~Emmet Fox. I spent years trying to get rid of my anxiety & depression & failed. Then one day someone asked me if I created the world & at that moment, the realization that there must be something more powerful than human beings, crept into my mind & changed EVERYTHING! The goal for today: never underestimate the Healing Power that exists deep down inside of each & everyone of us! Have a great day everybody!
I'm not always in the best situation... but I can always make the best of every situation. We all have our problems & that will never change... it's how we react to them & how we let them affect us that really matters. I try to use my troubles as a guide to progress... an opportunity to learn & grow. Learning how to face & overcome adversity is absolutely essential to our Lives & Happiness! The goal for today: make the best of EVERY situation by diligently seeking out opportunities to be helpful to others! Have a great day everybody!
Ignorance isn't really bliss. Ignoring my problems won't fix them or bring about happiness. We all have a different threshold for emotional pain... & ignorance, or unknowing, is a big factor in it. If I honestly don't know that what I'm doing is wrong, then the emotional price isn't as painful. However, once I start 'knowingly' doing wrong, the pain becomes too much & I am forced to take action... good, bad or otherwise. The goal for today: experience real bliss by knowing what's Right & doing it! Have a great day everybody!
"If you don't control your subconscious mind, it will control you & you'll call it fate" ~Carl Jung. Do you have any idea what is going on in the back of your mind right now? I never did. Not controlling my subconscious contributed to my so called accidents... my insomnia... my anxiety & depression... etc. It wreaks havoc on us when we are unaware of it's involvement in our daily lives. The goal for today: make a habit of having positive thoughts, as often as possible, & keep doing it until it becomes second nature or subconscious. Have a great day everybody!
When people are afraid, they act poorly (God knows I did). If I can understand that it's fear & not take it personally, I can avoid the anger & frustration. Fear is an illness... it's not necessarily a physical disorder (although it may cause one), but it is a soul sickness that manifests itself in all sorts of ugly ways. Fear causes dishonesty... dishonesty causes selfishness... selfishness causes resentment & this becomes a vicious cycle. The goal for today: get rid of fear... break the vicious cycle & find some Peace, Happiness & Freedom! Have a great day everybody!
"In God's time, not ours" ~idk. I don't disagree, but this has been grossly misinterpreted by many (including me). There's no such thing as time in God's world... time is a man made invention. God only exists in the present moment... not in the past (depression), nor in the future (anxiety). So, if good isn't happening to me right here & now, it's because I'm not living in the present... not because God is withholding good from me. The goal for today: know that good is always God's plan... 24/7! Have a great day everybody!
The 1st Principle... you can't fix a problem that you refuse to admit exists. Example: I've had many failed relationships & in my mind... it was always the other persons fault. In this delusional state, I would end the relationship... change nothing... start a new one & repeat the viscous cycle. Once I admitted that I was at least partially responsible & took a look at myself... then I was able to make some changes & correct the problem. The goal for today, admit my faults... because admission is the beginning of the end of the problem! Have a great day everybody! The 2nd Principle... there is no sanity without God. I know the word 'God' makes some people uncomfortable, but hear me out. There is a voice deep down…
If I'm depressed, should I pretend I'm not... find someone or something to blame... or fix it? If I'm anxious, should I pretend I'm not... find someone or something to blame... or fix it? If I'm angry or hurt or feeling insecure, should I pretend I'm not... find someone or something to blame... or fix it? I know that many of you are thinking... "easier said than done"... but it is actually infinitely easier to fix it, than it is to live with it day in & day out, year after year... I've been there. The goal for today: there is always a solution & I refuse to go without it! Have a great day everybody!
The instructions on how to be successful at life, work just like any other instructions. Example: If I buy a desk & the manual says "Using the wooden dowels, attach part 'A' to part 'B'" & I decide to use scotch tape instead... I'm not gonna get the Right results. It may appear to have worked until 5 years later when I place something on that shelf & it comes crashing down. The only way to guarantee the Right results is to follow the instructions... not make up my own as I go along. The goal for today: follow the instructions & if it goes wrong, revisit the instructions... don't rewrite them! Have a great day everybody!
