Today’s Inspiration

If I could share 500 words to inspire, this is the important wisdom I’d want to pass along to others…

One of my favorite figures from history is President Theodore Roosevelt. He lived an amazing life. He accomplished so many big things – he built the Panama Canal, won a Nobel Peace Prize, started America’s national parks system.

But he received a great deal of criticism during his lifetime, exactly because he dared to do big things. After his presidency, he gave a speech in response to all of those who had been hollering and sniping at him through the years. In it, he said that "it is not the critic who counts. The credit belongs to the one who is actually in the arena."

I find myself thinking a lot about what President Roosevelt said. I think a great deal about battling in arenas. We live in a world that is in many ways broken and scarred – a broken, weary world that loves to kill our dreams, to strangle them to death before we have a chance to fully nurture and embrace them. We live in world vehemently hostile to hope.

Theodore knew this well. He pointed to the critic outside of the arena, and we must confront him as well. Choose to live your life at full volume, with strength and joy and passion, and you will surely confront those who will try to tear you Critapart. The fight in this arena will be harsh and difficult. Living an inspired and inspirational life is often difficult and unglamorous, completely devoid of glitz and pomp. The road is painfully perilous and uneven, and it will take a long, long time before our dreams will be achieved.

So why fight? Why step into the arena at all?

Because, as President Roosevelt said in that same speech, our place is not with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat. We leap into the arena despite the critics and the doubts and the difficulties. We act in defiance of them. And that act alone is the beginning of victory.

Jump into the arena! There is room enough for you to the left and to the right. Your place has never been, your place will never be with those cold and timid souls who stand frozen in fear just outside the arena’s edge.

The opening bell has sounded. Climb into the arena, set your legs, straighten your back and keep your head and your hands held high – held high against Doubt, held high against Criticism, held high against that small voice inside you, begging you to give up and get out. Ignore it. Crush down your fear and doubts. Endure in this arena. Lean on those who love you when you begin to falter. Keep fighting until Victory is won and your dreams are achieved.

The credit belongs to the one who is actually in the arena. The joy belongs to the one who is actually in the arena. True Life belongs to the one who is actually in the arena. So get in, and let’s go.

Working hard is the foundation for any success in life, but many people have the “What if” Disease! , they see “Working hard as Hardly Working” & expect the same results

Begin your day by feeling grateful. Be grateful for the bed you just slept in, the roof over your head, the carpet or floor under your feet, the running water, the soap, your shower, your toothbrush, your clothes, your shoes, the refrigerator that keeps your food cold, the car that you drive, your job, your friends. Be grateful for the stores that make it so easy to buy the things you need, the restaurants, the utilities, services, and electrical appliances that make your life effortless. Be grateful for the magazines and the books that you read. Be grateful for the chair that you sit on, and the pavement that you walk on. Be grateful for the weather, the sun, the sky, the birds, the trees, the grass, the rain, and the flowers.

Thank you, thank you, thank you! May the joy be with you, Rhonda Byrne The Secret & The Power

Topics: Gratitude, Intention, Kindness, Nature, Practical Exercises

Camille LucyOften times, our days get ahead of us and by the time night falls, we cannot even remember what we did or how the hours passed by so quickly. Here are some ways you can catch yourself from running blindly through your day like a tornado, missing everything, so that you can live fully and with intention.

  1. Set intentions. This may sound silly, but the way in which you wake will determine much of your day. When you open your eyes (before anyone – human or companion animal – notices you are awake), take a few moments to pay attention to your breath. Slow your mind, do not let it race off thinking about your stressors. Set an intention for the day. What do you want to accomplish and how do you want to feel today?
  2. Be grateful. As you are setting your intention, spend an extra moment thinking about all that you are grateful for. Perhaps you may want to jot this down in a “gratitude journal.” According to the Harvard Health Publications, “In positive psychology research, gratitude is strongly and consistently associated with greater happiness.” Focusing on what is good in your life will sprinkle your day with more happiness!
  3. Get moving. Spend another moment stretching and moving your body. Connect with how you feel, physically and emotionally. Take inventory of your thoughts, and of the signals your body is sending you.
  4. Step outside. According to Marilyn Price-Mitchell, Ph.D. in The Moment of Youth, research suggests that “’nature relatedness has a distinct happiness benefit’ beyond the more generalized benefit of feeling connected to family, friends, and home. Our connection to nature also correlated with most measures of human well-being, indicating it may play an extremely important role in maintaining positive mental health.” Spending some time outdoors before you begin your day will help ground you and improve your overall well-being.
  5. Be mindful. Sure enough, at some point during the day you will be racing around, again. Try to remember to slow down while doing everyday tasks such as walking the dog or washing your hands. The MindfulMinute.org suggests, “The next time you wash your hands, slow down the process by paying attention to the feel of your hands as you turn on and off the faucet. Listen to the sounds of the water flowing through and from the pipes. Feel the soap as you apply it to your hands and smell its aroma. Bring awareness to the movement of your hands and fingers–to the feel of the water as it plays against your hands. To the temperature.” Exercises such as this one will aid you in becoming more present with your day.
  6. Be kind. Kindness is a universal language, and everyone benefits from it. Mark Twain said, “Kindness is a language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see.” Pay it forward, kindness is contagious and before you know it, one kind act has snowballed into dozens performed by others as a result.
  7. Check in with yourself. Lastly, it is important to check in with yourself to see how you are feeling throughout the day. Acknowledging and accepting your emotions and feelings, whether they be what you consider “good” or “bad” ones, can help you to release the junk that is holding you back and keeping you stuck. It allows you to let go and move forward rather than fester and spiral into a negative or anxious head space.

Peaceful Cup of TeaTry these seven tips out for a while and see how you feel. Implementation into your life – and routine – will help you to remain more present and therefore enjoy (and remember) your day more. As you get comfortable, feel free to improvise and add your own twist to the list! Find what resonates with you and makes you feel good. And do more of that!

If I could share 500 words of wisdom to summarize what I’ve learned so far in life, these are the important things I’d want to pass along to others…

In today’s culture of instant gratification where everything is available at the touch of a button and success is measured in viral terms, we tend to dismiss anything that doesn’t result in instantaneous, mega success. So what happens if your dreams appear too big, too difficult or too impossible to attain?

I am a dreamer and I believe that everyone who has a dream should pursue it and discover the possibilities that exist in the process.

A dream, that "strongly desired goal or purpose," usually applies to something better than what you have. You live in a shack and dream of one day living in a big beautiful house. A waitress fantasizes about owning her own restaurant; a high school athlete aspires to play in the NBA; a copy editor wants to write that best-selling novel. One person desires to travel the world, another to attend college or become a doctor.

The list goes on with dreams as varied as there are individuals, but they all indicate a strong desire to be somewhere, do or have something that seems totally unattainable.

Dreams give a sense of direction, something to reach for. The problem is most people talk about their dream and do nothing about it. When I spoke of going back to college as an adult to complete my bachelor’s degree, several of my friends indicated their desire to go back to school as well. I graduated several years ago while they never attempted to even register at a university.

I have dreams that came fully true; some that came partially true and some that never materialized, but I keep dreaming. Some of my life’s desires were fulfilled purely as a blessing from God. I did nothing to set the circumstances that put them in motion.

However, in most cases if you really want something, you have to reach for it by taking the necessary steps in the direction of achieving it. Like Walt Disney said, "Dreams can come true… if we have the courage to pursue them."

A lot of people are deterred by the fact that not all dreams become reality, and fail to consider the benefits of acting on theirs. Reaching for those inner desires in your heart gives you something to strive for, and helps you set goals for yourself. Following your passion keeps you actively engaged. The effort stretches you and empowers you.

Consequently, even if you don’t reach your intended target, you’ll still be further ahead than where you were. Les Brown, the motivational speaker, says it best, "Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you’ll land among the stars."

I say follow your dreams and keep the faith. Sometimes, however, the blessing may not be in the intended destination but rather in the process that makes your life considerably richer and so much more interesting.

Dream! Believe and achieve! But most of all enjoy the adventure and the wonderful journey that is life, for following the vision in your heart keeps your spirit alive.

You just might be the miracle someone is looking for today.
Remember that every single moment has a miracle of possibility.
If I am present to the moment, something I know, something I can share, something I can give or some way I can presence love can actually bring a miracle in a moment that I am sharing with someone.
I encourage you to walk through this day remembering that you just might be the miracle someone is looking for today. Here’s To Miracles, Mary Morrissey

· To harness the force of love in your life to bring something you or change something you don’t want, the Creation Process is always the same: Imagine it. Feel it. Receive it.

· Your imagination connects you to what you want. Your desire and feelings of love create the magnetism, the magnetic power, drawing your desire to you!

· Imagine yourself being with your desire. At the same time, feel love for what you’re imagining.

· When you imagine anything positive that you want and love, you are harnessing the force of love. Push your imagination to the limits, and imagine the best and highest that that you possibly can of whatever it is that you want.

· Whatever desires you imagine already exists! It doesn’t matter what it is: if you can imagine it, it already exists in creation.

· In conversations and in your thoughts say, “Imagine if …” and then complete the sentence with what you want.

· Use props. Surround yourself with items of clothing, pictures, photographs, and relevant objects, so you can imagine and feel the feelings of having what you want.

· Your senses are props too. Use all your senses to help you feel that you have what you want. Feel it, taste it, smell it, see it, and hear it.

· When you have completed your part in the Creation Process, you have moved into a new world that contains the very thing you want even if you can’t see it yet. Know you will receive it.

I never see failure as failure, but as the path I will not take in the further journey towards my greatness.

If I could share 500 words to inspire, this is the important wisdom I’d want to pass along to others…

Lucira Jane NebelungIf you are discouraged by all the discord you see in the world, I would like to share the one change that changes everything: changing how we lead. We hold the key to move beyond hope and through transformational change by looking at life differently and making different choices.

We frequently use the terms leadership and management interchangeably as if they mean the same thing. They don’t. We lead people and manage things, such as work and the everyday tasks of our lives.

Leading is about our humanness, our relationships and our interactions with each other. Leaders are those who choose to make the shift from success – acquiring and accumulating material things – to significance – making a positive difference in everyone’s life.

Leading is about possibility and potential. It is about creativity and innovation. It is about our well-being and fulfilment and generating common good. It focuses on our purpose and meaning, our connection and contribution, and our growth and mastery. It is about collaboration and cooperation to solve our common problems. Leading is about diminishing our three universal fears of not having support, not being in control and not feeling adequate, so that everyone thrives and realizes their potential.

And what diminishes these fears? How do we ensure that everyone thrives? By leading as love. Leading as love means that we respond with care, understanding and respect. It is living the belief that love makes a leader a leader.

Leading as love is who we are. Leading as love is a state of being, a philosophy, an approach to life that permeates all that we do. Leading as love is an art that we are always practicing and evolving and mastering.

So, if you are in a leadership role, I ask you to consider what I am saying in what you stand for and how you show up. If you are a “follower”, I ask you to consider if the leaders you follow are there to support the common good and help each and every one of us to be the best we can be and have the life we want. In this way, if you make this choice, you lead as love and so you are also a leader.

We can change the world by changing our personal beliefs about this one thing: What makes a leader a leader? When we change our beliefs our actions will be different through our choices for who we are as leaders and who we follow or support. Every choice – who you work with, how you vote, what you buy – makes a difference.

Remember this criterion: Love makes a leader a leader. Care, understanding and respect for everyone and everything in life. We all deserve nothing less.

In order to succeed, your desire for success should be greater than your fear of failure." Bill Cosby
