What would you do if the ignored the little voice in your head that says don’t do it, and were brave and went forward? This is a great folk song about being brave. Very inspiring![youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ipy9bW-P8dE?rel=0&w=560&h=315]
No matter what distressing situation you may now be in, you don’t have to be distressed. It is your choice how to perceive every situation. Forgive yourself and others for the choices that brought this situation into your life and look for the gifts that are present.
When I am not living my life to its fullest and using the gifts that I have, I feel like a dripping faucet. I am not turned on to my highest potential. I don’t want to live life as a drip, I want to live my life being fully used, like a fire hose putting out a raging fire.
As young children we create monsters in our minds that live under the bed. As adults those monsters of fear of rejection, fear of failure, or fear of pain keep us awake and paralyzed from living our lives. Amaze yourself and all those you know today by ignoring the fear and doing it anyway. The worst that can happen is that Edison you learn one more way not to make a lightbulb.
Sometimes we have those days, seemingly forever moments when we feel down and don’t want to continue this life. I hope that everyone of my friends and family know that you are never alone. This song is beautiful and the video is perfect – love you all and know that you are never alone.[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5pXrMPtCVcE?rel=0&w=420&h=315]
When we allow our self imposed limitations to stop us from living our dreams, it is like being hypnotized on a stage with a magician who has told us that we are trapped in a walled room with no windows or doors. Looking at you walking around the imaginary walls trapped, the audience is amazed that you don’t just walk out of your illusions. So I ask you what false illusions are stopping your from living your dreams?
Michael Bernard Beckwith had the thought that our NOT living up to our potential could be holding up the evolution of the universe. I thought about this in regards to the tipping point. Our getting “it” and living up to “it” could be the tipping point that lifts the whole world. Never think that what we do won’t make any difference.
Listening between the pauses to what isn’t being said in a conversation can be as important as what is being said. Sometimes our friends and family want to ask for help, but they don’t know how. How wonderful when we can pick up on it and help them out. Listen for the pauses and respond to unasked prayers of others.
People know when you are honestly reaching out wanting to help. The world needs helping hands, not critics. Instead of complaining, find something positive to say to do that will make somebody have a better day. Today I help you and tomorrow, you help me, and together we help someone else and pretty soon the whole world has changed to a better place!
Are you playing to win big or playing not to lose?
How does your day unfold? From overwhelm and committing to things that you were talked into doing, a place of current pain or crisis, a constant fire drill? Or do you operate from a place of passion, where you design your day in harmony with your goals? Are you able to say “no” to the requests which take you off your goals? Success means balancing our days with purpose driven goals and relaxing with friends & family.
If you go shopping or to a restaurant today, surprise someone by heaping great big piles of praise and compliments on them instead of complaining. You’ll make their day, week, and probably their month. They will go home in a good mood. So the families will be happier, in fact the whole world could be happier, and all because instead of just saying thank you, you raised their vibration by truly appreciating what they do.
