I believe Friday is in serious need of some #POSITIVITY! How is your attitude? Could it use a little adjusting? Do you need a little boost, an extra pep in your step? Today’s homework is to start a journal with 2 words written at the top, and then fill it in until you run out of ink… and then get a pen and keep writing! The magical words are: “I AM…” Simple. Declare unto you what YOU ARE. No negatives. No self-doubt. No sabotaging words. Practice kindness to yourself today. Here are a few words of encouragement from Jim Rohn about “can-do” people. Once you start using the “I AM” in your vocabulary, you BECOME a “can-do” person!
Can-do people are immune to burnout. They love what they do because they’ve learned how to fuel the fire that keeps them moving. The prize is not given to the person who’s the smartest, nor to the person with the advantages in resources and position, but to the person with passion.
Can-do people can adjust to change. They don’t get caught griping about an unexpected curve in the road. They accept transition with an optimistic outlook.
Can-do people are fearless. They go straight to the source of their solution. Their very effort commands attention as they wrestle a problem to the ground with expediency. They don’t wait; they initiate.
Can-do people abstain from complaining. They recognize its futility and guard their minds and mouths against indulging in this time-wasting activity.
Can-do people not only initiate, they finish. They are self-starters with the capacity to close the deal.


Big Dreams Have Small Beginnings

Heal Yourself Beautiful Big Dreams

 

Big dreams have small beginnings.

Reminds me of faith the size of a mustard seed from the Bible. No dream is TOO BIG for our GOD! We are not meant to settle for “good enough”. When God created you he placed talent and skill within you and waits for you to discover your special gifts. Following your soul’s destiny will create your dream life and one day you will find that AHA! and you will realize the treasure has always been within you. Don’t live with regrets. I heard something the other day, it said that the saddest place to visit is a cemetery… and not just because of the loss of lives. Within a cemetery are millions of “unrealized dreams”. The unloved heart, the person who was too afraid to take a chance at love, the book that was never written, the song that was never song, the painting that was never put on canvas, the masterpiece that was never created, the words that were never spoken, the trips that were never taken, the experiences that were never had, and the dreams that died within the person that was laid to rest. So starting today, set your sights on your WILDEST DREAMS. No dream is TOO BIG, so steer clear of minimal “good enough” mentality. YOU are a precious gift from God, you are not minimal, you are EXTRAORDINARY! Chase your dreams, follow your heart, listen to your soul’s PASSION, seek your BLISS, be good to yourself. As it says in the book, The Secret, the world is your Genie whatever you ask of it, “your wish is my command.”


Roar Like a Lion! Be the Storm!

Roar Like A Lion

Roar Like A Lion

The Devil whispers, “You can’t withstand the storm.”
The Warrior replies, “I AM the storm!”

So good! Do you ever feel like you are being “toyed” with? Like every time you make a right turn, a barrier is waiting for you? I had an interesting week with 3 down days with power outages and internet interruptions. Makes it difficult to create a masterpiece when sitting by candlelight with a pen in hand. But I DID IT! Life is flowing today, and MY GOD is bigger than any barrier sitting in front of me. Like the LION, I ROAR back before I take control of the moment. I had to get a little creative to get back lost time and resources, but I overcame by staying in the moment. Always remember, YOU are in control of how you act and how you REACT. Either you will spin it to a negative record, or you will put on some Garth Brooks and use your cowgirl boots to kick it out! Satan cannot touch the LION in the cowboy boots today! Just try me!


Which LION are you: Courageous or Cowardly?

Courage

“A coward dies 1000 deaths, a courageous man only once.” Ernest Hemingway

I was listening to Tony Robbins for morning motivation I heard this gem. What is your focus? What are you saying to yourself? Here’s an interesting analogy. If you saw a bad movie,would you continue to go back to that movie several times even though it made you miserable? Of course we wouldn’t… we wouldn’t waste our money and time on something we know we are not going to enjoy. So why do we agonize ourselves with sabotaging thoughts, causing an uneasy state? Like going to a bad movie over and over again, we have a choice on where to direct our focus and what movie we’re going to play in our heads every moment. Don’t create pain over and over again, feel the emotion once and let it go. Today’s wisdom… stay focused and do your best to stay in the present. If you find yourself fearful and worrying about the future remind yourself to come back to the now. We may not have control over what’s going to happen in two weeks, two months, or even two years, but we do have control over how we react right now. Choose your thoughts wisely, and if you find yourself getting fearful, instead go to a place of gratitude and kick those thoughts out of your head.


Let Go and Let God… God Doesn’t Need Your Help Today!

Let go, and let God.  God doesn’t need your help today.

This is where all of us should be.  We need to ask HIM for what we want in our life and listen to that little voice within us.  It is like “Faith the size of a Mustard Seed”.  Have faith like that!

Are you heeding the calling that you are meant to do?  When you are doing what you are passionate about, you will know that it is your spiritual calling.

Take a few minutes for this motivation and inspiration!
