Faith

Nothing is more personally empowering than justifiable belief in your abilities. Believe great things about yourself but also, be worthy of those beliefs.

You’ve heard this before…

Thank you!

I want to thank you for taking the time to read this and helping me through your comments to sharpen my writing skills.

Today I am going to write about something that is near and dear to my heart. Today I am going to talk about diligence. But, not directly. I’m going to talk about diligence in the form of making specific changes to your habits in an effort to align them with your beliefs.

Respect

 

How do you keep people from treating you disrespectfully?

I’ve found that the more you treat others as though they’re the most valuable people in the world, the less desire people will have to treat you with disrespect. You can prevent them from wanting to disrespect you by treating them with love and honor regardless of, and without judging, whether or not they deserve it.

Feeling Good is a Choice

How Great is it imageIs your life great? Are you thankful for you financial situation? Are you happy you have the people in your life that you have or have had relationships with? Can you smile to yourself and think about how great it is to have the job you have, the relationships with your children, family, friends, neighbors, or even your mail person? Does your dog or cat make you feel good or proud that you have them and that they love you?

Choose to choose

When I was a little younger I believed that the ultimate goal in life was to be happy. I still believe this, but my idea of what ‘happiness’ is has changed. When I was younger and I needed to make a choice between going to the party and staying home I asked myself a simple question, “Will I be happier at home or at the party?” It’s a simple question and the answer usually came easy. I determined my actions for the evening in a simple and easy way; which will make me happier right now? Read the rest of this entry »

Navigating the River of Life

Mother Nature does not tolerate idleness. Think about it a minute. Do you know of anything in the universe that isn’t moving or being acted upon by nature, time, or the elements? Nothing in nature stands still. Everything is either moving or changing constantly.

Our lives are in a continual state of change. Our bodies are aging and growing, The world is changing around us. Our families and friends are changing and growing. Nothing stays the same. Read the rest of this entry »

Who is in control here?

The longer I live, the more I realize the impact my attitude has on my life. I have so far learned that attitude is more important than facts. Attitude is more important than my past. It is more important than my education, my appearance, my skill, and even more important than money. It is more important than failures, than successes, or what others think, say, or do. Attitude can ruin a relationship or destroy a group of friends. Based on it, a company will either succeed or fail. It has the power to tear a family apart and perpetuate itself Read the rest of this entry »

Quit Smoking if you want to…

Have you made up your mind? Are you absolutely sure you want to quit? Are you willing to put as much effort into quitting as you currently do to continue smoking?

Most people would probably answer those three questions with “Yes!” – “Yes!” – and “Umm, I don’t know.”

I started smoking when I was 8. I have quit smoking, for over a year, at least 5 times. I have tried to quit smoking dozens of times. The last time I quit will be the last time I quit. I will never ever ever ever inhale cigarette smoke on purpose again!

I have enough experience in both quitting and failing to quit that I feel like I can speak half-way intelligently on the subject. Read on and see if you agree. Read the rest of this entry »

Be Yourself!

I believe that people are generally good. I believe that most people want to be the best people they can be. So in an effort to be good we sometimes put on a happy face when we’re not really happy. Sometimes, in our efforts to be better people we begin on the outside and work our way inward. We make the mistake of thinking if we change how we Read the rest of this entry »

Negative Voices

The other day I went for a job interview. The job description seemed as though they were looking for exactly what I could and wanted to give. But when I got there, I realized I had a bad feeling about the place. I thought that maybe, the feeling had to do with the distance I would have to travel, weather, or that I just wasn’t feeling well. But then, the feeling Read the rest of this entry »
