The things you want are always possible; it is just that the way to get them is not always apparent. The only real obstacle in your path to a fulfilling life is you, and that can be a considerable obstacle because you carry the baggage of insecurities and past experience.
― Les Brown
Give thanks today ~ even if your life is not what you want it to be. You may be facing financial hardships with no place to call your own, in the midst of serious health or relationships challenges, dealing with crazy children or relatives or overworked and underpaid. When you look at your life, it may be hard to be thankful.
For others, this may have been your best year ever. You turned your life around, enjoyed success, created more love in your life and exceeded your personal best. Regardless of where you find yourself…in all things give thanks. You still have another chance to turn things around, set things right; heal relationships, live full out, laugh and love more and stand in your GREATNESS! Your presence creates possibility, promise and hope for the future. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!
Clean your slate ~ No more left-overs! Refuse to let the disappointments, mistakes, setbacks or failures of yesterday rob you of the opportunities, breakthroughs and open doors that are waiting for you today.
Make failure an open door to a new future. Learn from the experience. Reassess your strategy. Change your approach. Plunge ahead with fresh energy, bold enthusiasm and a new game plan. Hold a spirit of optimism and positive expectation that things will work out for you. Continue to move forward ~ coming back again and again. Your destiny is waiting just ahead for you. Discover the brilliance of you! You have GREATNESS within you!
As people around the world celebrate the birth of Christ today, may each of us, regardless of our religious perspective, remember that we individually and collectively can bring the ultimate gifts of Christmas ~ peace, hope, joy and love into our own lives, as well as the lives of others.
Today is Christmas. Instead of just giving and receiving gifts, determine to be a gift in someone’s life. Your presence can lift another’s spirit, energize with joy and remind them that their life, regardless of the circumstances, is a blessing. Be the gift today and make a difference in the lives of others. Merry Christmas to you and yours from my home to yours!!
We don’t accomplish anything in this world alone… and whatever happens is the result of the whole tapestry of one’s life and all the weavings of individual threads from one to another that creates something. YOU! ~YNT © 2009
You know each year we say to ourselves, “hope this year is better than the last!” Believe it or not, each year does get better, maybe not in all the areas you wish, but they do get better. If you doubt that, just remember this from Les Brown……
“This is your time! Money, opportunities and possibilities have not left the planet. This is the time that you have to think on your feet. This is the time that you have to become relentless, unstoppable and carve out a place for yourself. Today you have to run just to stand still. Today you have to look ahead and anticipate things. Expect the unexpected and handle it.
This is your time! You must become focused, disciplined, consistent and unstoppable. Develop collaborative, achievement driven, productive relationships that will help you to work on your breakthrough. You have the power, ability and talent to create a new beginning. This is your time. Make it happen. You have something special! You have GREATNESS within you!”
As the New Year approaches, people you just gatta let go!! Don’t carry 2016 baggage into 2017…..
Sometimes when you have outgrown the situations in your life, and you’re not aware, or don’t have the courage to move on ~ life will move on you. You may have been told that your company is going in another direction. You knew it was coming and you didn’t prepare yourself. Now you are angry and feel you were wronged. You have to move on.
Your relationship of many years may have ended and you were devastated, confused and shocked. You’re in pain; feel disillusioned; full of despair. However, it’s time to move on. Your mind might be reeling. Your heart probably feels like it’s been ripped out and handed to you on a platter. As hard as it will be, you must shake it off and move on. Moving on doesn’t mean that you give up. Moving on means that no job, relationship, house, or any other thing is worth your sanity. Don’t focus on the things that you’ve lost. You can always get these back and much more. Focus your mind. Get still. Go within. Tap into your greatness and move on. You deserve it!
Most people have gone as far as they want to go and they are satisfied with living a small life. That’s not you!! Make up your mind to break loose and live the life you were meant to live, fueled by your passion, skills and determination. Continue to hold the vision of what you want for your life and live from your dream.
Break the shackles of fear, procrastination and despair. Tap into your faith, relentless action and inspiration to create your greatest life. Your life matters in the greater scheme of things. You were put here to make a difference and create something original. Design a legacy worthy of your greatest self. Stay on the path. You have something special.
