When life is just too much... when it feels like the weight of the world is on your shoulders... that's when our faith gets tested. There is no such thing as an unsolvable problem & there is no problem too big for God. But the most important thing to remember is that when trouble comes... it comes for a reason. The reason is that our heart is ready to face that problem. The old saying that God won't give us anything we can't handle is true... but it is our own hearts that tell God we are ready to handle it. The goal for today: when trouble comes, know that it came because you ARE ready! Have a great day everybody!
Tolerance = To respect others beliefs, practices, etc. without sharing them. I always thought tolerance meant... you're an asshole, but I can put up with you... I was wrong again. We have no unity & it's because we have no respect. For example: we have a two party system in this country to insure that both sides of the story are heard... not so we can argue about who's right & who's wrong & pit people against each other. The goal for today: reestablish unity via patience, tolerance, kindliness & love... then America will be great again! Have a great day everybody!
How do you really feel about yourself? Do you think you are smart enough, strong enough, attractive enough... good enough in general? Things like intelligence & strength come to us directly from God & are always present... it is simply a matter of tapping into what already exists within us. The Law of Attraction has absolutely nothing to do with physical appearance... it's about heart & any other attraction isn't real. Being "good enough" is about being a good person, from the inside, out... not about test scores, titles & body part measurements. The goal for today: know that "self-esteem" comes from "self"... not society. We are ALL good enough... & we are ALL beautiful! Have a great day everybody!
Balance is a vitally important part of life... but it isn't always easy to achieve. For example: the middle class isn't really dictated by annual income... it is an attitude, a state of mind. The real middle class in this country is the small group of people that don't want anything they haven't earned... & don't want anyone to take from them what they have earned. The goal for today: adjust your attitude... seek true justice... find a healthy balance... & earn a better life! Have a great day everybody!
Today I am 12 years clean & sober. How did I accomplish this? By following a very simple set of spiritual principles. Not religious principles, not mysterious principles, not magic principles... but spiritual principles. These scientifically tested & proven spiritual principles taught me how to spot, admit & correct the 4 defects of character that cause ALL of my problems. I spot them by taking my own inventory regularly... then I admit them to God, myself & all of you... & I correct them by doing the opposite of them. The goal for today: don't be afraid... be Honest, Selfless & Loving! Have a great day everybody!
"All the gods, all the heavens, all the hells, are within you" ~Joseph Campbell. Everything outside of us came from inside of us. All of the good... all of the bad... & everything in between. Everything that has ever happened to us, throughout our entire lives, is a direct result of inner thought. In the womb, God directs our thinking. During childhood, other people direct our thinking. From the age of 12 on, we direct our own thinking... & that is what builds our existence. The goal for today: think Right... feel Right... and live Free! Have a great day everybody!
There are so many things to be thankful for... here are a few of those things: I am very genuinely thankful for God, country & freedom! I am very genuinely thankful for family, friends & love! I am very genuinely thankful for peace, happiness & usefulness! The list could go on & on, but I don't want to just "say" that I'm thankful for these things... I want to prove it. The goal for today: don't just be thankful... prove your thankfulness by acting thankful! Have a great day everybody! Happy Thanksgiving!
"One man can make a difference & every man should try" ~JFK. Every once in a while, someone comes into our world & does great things! They lead people to peace & freedom! They teach people that there is better way! A person that not only leads by example, but leads people to the only place worth going... to true fellowship & brotherhood! Jesus... Jefferson... Lincoln... Goethe... Emmet Fox... JFK... these are some of my heroes. But I have a few heroes whose names you may not know: Charles... Glenda... Eric... & Jenn. The goal for today: make a difference in someone's life today! Have a great day everybody!
I've come to the undeniable conclusion that when someone insults me & I get upset, it's because I have either overvalued their opinion... or I believe their insult. If the insult is true... I should fix it; if it's not true... I should let it roll off my back. Option 3, where I believe their insult, do nothing to fix it & allow my feelings to be hurt... is always the wrong thing to do. The goal for today: don't wait for the world to act right, because it's not going to... learn how to react properly to the world instead! Have a great day everybody!
When I'm angry all the time, it is harder for people to be happy around me. When I lie all the time, it is harder for people to trust me. When I'm selfish, it is harder for people to want to help me. And when I'm full of fear, it is impossible for people to live up to the insane standards that I hold them up to. On the other hand, when my motives are Pure & my words & deeds are Honest & Selfless... then Love & abounding Good fill my life & the lives of those around me. The goal for today: know that only positives lead to more positives! Have a great day everybody!
