For the past few months I have run myself ragged. I have stressed myself out... let my health slide a bit... & missed out on some happiness in general. But a few days ago I was reminded that these things all take place by choice. I have had days, & so have you, where stress got the best of me. And I have had other days, with the same exact things going on, that I didn't allow stress to get the best of me. The goal for today: don't let stress control me... when I should be controlling it! Have a great day everybody!
Do you have a problem that you have "had it up to here" with? Are you done putting up with certain people, places or things that seem to be causing you grief? Are you willing to do whatever it takes to put an end to it? If you answered yes, then you are ready... ready to change yourself! We always believe it is everyone & everything else that needs to change in order for us to be happy... but real happiness comes when we change ourselves. The goal for today: change from the inside out... & be happy! Have a great day everybody!
There is a law in life that says... your fear will cause the thing you are most afraid of, to happen. This is not a man made law & therefore, it cannot be broken. Fear causes us to act irrationally... it causes stress & strain... a lack of focus & attention... it causes us to lie to ourselves... it causes us to act selfishly... & ultimately it poisons our hearts with resentment, which is the destroyer of all things worth while. The goal for today: look at what you've lost... find your fear... & then ask God to remove it! Have a great day everybody!
"The two most important days in your life are the day you were born and the day you find out why" ~Mark Twain. We know when you were born... & now I'm gonna spoil the surprise & tell you why. We're all born for the same reason, to learn how to GIVE Love... that's why we're here. We are not unique in that respect, but we are unique in the methods we use. Some transmit Love through music or poetry... others through chivalrous acts; but the most important Love of all is to simply & genuinely care about people. The goal for today: Love! Have a great day everybody!
There are 3 ranges to everything we do... 2 unhealthy, opposite extremes & then an acceptable, healthy, balanced range in the middle. For example: is your life governed by the extreme right of ego... the extreme left of low self-esteem... or the balanced middle of humility? Ego says I know it all. Low self-esteem says I know nothing. Real humility says I don't know everything, but I've learned a lot. The goal for today: find true Happiness, Peace & Freedom by avoiding the unhealthy extremes! Have a great day everybody!
There are 4 sides to our lives & this must be understood in order to be truly successful at life. We have a tendency to get wrapped up in maintaining our physical, material lives... but material comes last. If I don't take care of my soul... maintain my sanity... & balance my emotions... material doesn't matter! And if I do properly take care of my spiritual, mental & emotional states... then the physical & material things of life take care of themselves. The goal for today: take care of yourself the Right way! Have a great day everybody!
Most of my life I thought that you couldn't help me unless you had been through the same exact experience as me. Now I believe differently. Every day I help people overcome heroin addiction... sexual abuse... marital problems... etc... etc... etc. I have never had these particular problems, but I know for certain what causes them... & I am equally positive about how to resolve them. The goal for today: know that the universal Right & wrong makes us all equal, identical & predictable! Have a great day everybody!
"You are as young as your faith, as old as your doubt; as young as your self-confidence, as old as your fear; as young as your hope, as old as your despair" ~Samuel Ullman. I feel tired, defeated & old when I fill my mind with doubt, fear & despair. I stay young by having faith that there is always a solution... by being confident enough to know that I can find & apply that solution... & by knowing that it will lead us ALL to a better place once we do apply it. The goal for today: believe... rise up... & achieve! Have a great day everybody!
All the negative things in our lives are a result of wrong thinking. Wrong thinking is the direct cause of our stress, fear, anger, worry, sadness, etc... etc... etc. What is the solution? Right thinking! When we feel bad, the only way to fix it is to think good. We have a thought... attach an emotion... & then a physical event manifests from that. The goal for today: think about helping others... feel the joy & pleasure that comes from doing so... go do it... & watch all the negatives wash away from our hearts & minds! Have a great day everybody!
Our thought life is where our true power comes from. Actions, words & experiences are powerful... but our thoughts are what ultimately cause these things to happen. We can't act, speak or experience anything, without thinking about it first. We tend to want to "turn our brain off" because our thoughts keep us up at night & torment us all day long. The goal for today: don't turn your brain off, practice directing it to positives... because the only negative that exists, is that which we create in our mind! Have a great day everybody!
