Be Inspired to Succeed by Failing

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

I believe everything we need to succeed is inside us as children, but it gets slowly pushed out of us as we grow older. By the time we’re teenagers we’ve forgotten these lessons or been forced to bury them. And if you are like me, deep inside you don’t feel any different than you did at age ten or twelve, well, except that you likely don’t play baseball anymore and you probably haven’t done a somersault in years. (I am not suggesting you start.)

What I am saying is that you get back a few of those great qualities you had as a kid that kept your mind open to possibility and made life fun, interesting, and full of hope. Here’s how:

Learn to enjoy failure. Everything you did as a kid requires trying and failing. Climbing a tree, riding a bike or tying your shoes all forced you to fumble and fail. But you did not care. Mistakes were just part of the process. You had no embarrassment or shame – only a desire to go faster to learn and master all of the exciting things that were ahead of you. Ridding yourself from fear of failure means you let go of what other people think about you. The obsession with perfection, fearing mistakes and failure ruins opportunities and destroys your potential. Oh and another thing, failures teach you valuable lessons just like they did when you were young. Ever burn your hand on a hot stove? Check, I did.

Start asking. We asked questions all the time because we were curious. As adults we have let go of that great skill. Instead, we assume what people are thinking, what they will do and how they will answer our question. We assume they won’t buy, they won’t help, or that they are not interested. Now that may be true, but how do you know for sure? Rejection is all around. But avoiding rejection from others means you reject yourself first! Give other people the opportunity to say no and don’t make assumptions.

Don’t take no for an answer. Okay, I am not suggesting you become a spoiled brat. But we need to remember the tenacity we had as kids. One ‘no’ from someone was the opening of the conversation. It was the starting place to getting to where we wanted to go. We got creative and bargained, learning how to persuade and convince – even if it was just for money to buy a candy bar. It was a great skill! So don’t take that ‘no’ so easily and remember that it is often the beginning of a relationship and often ends in a yes if we are patient and positively persistent.

The hope and possibility you had as a kid can be found but you need to tap back into these traits to do it. They are the things that will remind you of the person that you were and then get to you to become the person you were always meant to be and live the life that you dreamed about.

"You create your life through the inner power of your being, whose source is within you and yet beyond the selves that you know. Use those creative abilities with understanding abandon. Honour yourselves and move through the godliness of your being." Jane Robert

A positive mental attitude is an irresistible force that knows no such thing as an immovable body.
Time and again we hear stories about ordinary people who do seemingly impossible things when they find themselves in an emergency situation. They perform Herculean feats of strength and endurance, things they never dreamed they were capable of doing. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if you could harness that strength and make it available anytime you need it? You can — if you believe you can. No doubt you can remember a time in your life when you were exceptionally focused on your objective, a time when you achieved more in less time than ever before. Perhaps it was an impending vacation that motivated you to get everything done before you departed, or perhaps it was a “must pass” exam that helped you focus your concentration. The intensity that you developed in those situations is always available to you when you have a Positive Mental Attitude. – Napoleon Hill

 

 

How You Can Choose Wealth Over Riches

Abundance, Success, Wealth

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

I’m proud of my financial position in life, but contrary to what a lot of people may think, I never aspired to be rich. I wanted to be wealthy. It wasn’t always that way, though. I think there was a lot of fear driving me. Fear of being poor again and fear of going back to that impoverished life from my childhood.

Being rich and being wealthy seem to be synonymous with success. However, there’s a big difference between the two. The main difference between being rich and being wealthy is knowledge. Wealthy people know how to make money, while rich people only have money. Rich people are motivated by money, but wealthy people are motivated by their dreams, purpose and passion. Most rich people make a lot of money with their pay checks but the moment they stop working, they also stop making money. Wealth, true wealth, is often generational money and money that works for you.

Most people do want to be rich. We want to enjoy the fruits of their labour and live a life that is more fortunate and ultimately extravagant than the average man. We dream of having the nice things. These are things that everyone wants, but very few actually achieve. Essentially, it comes down to the person and their mind-set. It also comes down to their purpose, motivation and will power. It’s never the ones that are just motivated by money, it’s the ones who are motivated to change the world and build a legacy because that is what wealth really is.

Your ability to cultivate desire and take persistent action is what will make you successful, not your natural talents. It’s all about consistent daily action. Wealthy and rich people both may experience downfalls and failures in their ventures. However, wealthy people are knowledgeable when it comes to money matters and can start all over again and build wealth over time.

The key to acquiring wealth is to regularly monitor and increase your passive and portfolio income by increasing your means to earn and decreasing your expenses. The moment you decide to make passive and portfolio income a part of your financial habit and discipline yourself in building it, you are on your way to financial freedom.

This is the path in maintaining a strong wealth foundation. Never forget that what you do on a daily basis determines your habits, and your habits determine who you are, what you accomplish, and the legacy you leave. People will measure you by what you do and what you have managed to accomplish in your lifetime, which then of course leads to your legacy.

If you have inspired people and they can share and tell your story for generations to come, then you have created wealth in your life. You have left a legacy. You have done something different – you didn’t settle for simply being rich.

I don’t work for my money. It works for me. That’s the key to separating the wealthy from the rich. While I am still working diligently on my plan to independent wealth, I am confident I am on the right path. Which path will you choose?

Energize Your Life With Self Awareness

“I dare you to engage unstoppable confidence and belief with a wealth of fantastic resources to achieve your goals, realize your hopes, and manifest your dreams.” – Murray Nabors

Attitude, Energy, Potential, Self Awareness and Knowledge, Thoughts, Your Magnificence

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

You are not diminished by your pain. Your spirituality is not measured by the presence or absence of difficulty in your life. Challenge is not a punishment or a reward. It is not a reflection of your value to the world; it is a reflection of your choice to grow and learn and make mistakes.

Although your thoughts and attitudes attract and create your life, you are not your thoughts.

“Your thoughts control your experience of reality. But your thoughts cannot affect, or change, or control, or even touch who you are.”~ Paul Williams, Remember Your Essence

Remembering your essence will awaken you to the realization that humans are magnificent beings with unlimited potential. Not remembering doesn’t change who you are.

Challenge yourself to look beyond the circumstances of your life and recognize the truly magnificent soul inside. Then, look beyond the circumstances of every person you meet and see his or her essence.

In the book The Game of Life and How to Play It, Florence Scovel Shinn proposes that if one person holds another in a vision of wholeness, that person cannot fail. Do you hold yourself in a vision of wholeness? How do you see the people around you: your parents, children, partners, friends? Is the first thought of them of their failures?

Or, can you be the one person who sees them in the wholeness of their path as a person with divine essence, growing?

We are in a planetary time of transition. Ancient cultures like the Maya have said this is a time of expansion when the old will crumble to make way for the new. Certainly the old is crumbling as economies, governments and religious institutions fail. The planet itself is in flux: earthquakes, volcanoes, extreme weather occur more frequently.

In this transition we have the opportunity to embrace the quantum physics implication that everything is connected to everything else. The universe is undivided, entangled and whole. At its essence, it is energy.

Accessing your unlimited potential occurs when you engage the energy basis of life. Through the act of directing energy with your mind and heart, you help create the direction of our collective future.

What that direction will be depends on the awareness with which each of us makes our choices and how we behave in the trials underway. What we do depends on our beliefs about reality and on what we hold as precious.

It’s time to define what we believe and what we treasure. It’s time to engage life from the realm of energy and create our highest vision of wholeness.

Ultimately, we are all in this together. In the transition underway, none of us makes it unless all of us do. Enjoy life, enjoy this process of expansion, and choose love. Move beyond the polarity of good and bad, of us and them, into singularity. Follow your heart and engage the path of energy.

Positive actions bring a flow of constant energy

Too Busy for a Friend?

Before this heart felt true story I have a poem passed round the military persons I know, it will also touch your heart as does the story; Please enjoy and remember!

Today’s Poem

See the ghosts of soldiers walking; hear the voices of the dead. Have we not earned rest eternal? In this battle ground our bed.

Look no further than the crosses which in thousands bear our name, yet remember what we died for and the reason that we came.

Not for greed, or fame, or glory, not to conquer foreign lands, But to light the torch of freedom, Place it in down trodden hands.

Yet our souls in restless torment find no peace among the years. Is our sacrifice unheeded? Lost, forgotten, by our peers?

Tell us not our deaths were useless, Tell us not we died in vain, hear the piper, and hear the drummer; Swear that you would not do the same.

See the ghosts of soldiers walking and the crosses they arrayed, we are now the earth you walk on in our celestial parade.                                                                                                              Author: David E. ONeon, Folkestone Kent

One day a teacher asked her students to list the names of the other students in the room on two sheets of paper, leaving a space between each name.
Then she told them to think of the nicest thing they could say about each of their classmates and write it down…
It took the remainder of the class period to finish their assignment, and as the students left the room, each one handed in the papers.

That Saturday, the teacher wrote down the name of each student on a separate sheet of paper, and listed what everyone else had said about that individual.
On Monday she gave each student his or her list. Before long, the entire class was smiling. ‘Really?’ she heard whispered. ‘I never knew that I meant anything to anyone!’ and, ‘I didn’t know others liked me so much,’ were most of the comments.
No one ever mentioned those papers in class again. She never knew if they discussed them after class or with their parents, but it didn’t matter. The exercise had accomplished its purpose. The students were happy with themselves and one another. That group of students moved on.

Several years later, one of the students was killed in Viet Nam and his teacher attended the funeral of that special student. She had never seen a serviceman in a military coffin before. He looked so handsome, so mature.
The church was packed with his friends. One by one those who loved him took a last walk by the coffin. The teacher was the last one to bless the coffin.
As she stood there, one of the soldiers who acted as pallbearer came up to her. ‘Were you Mark’s math teacher?’ he asked…. She nodded: ‘yes.’ Then he said: ‘Mark talked about you a lot.’
After the funeral, most of Mark’s former classmates went together to a luncheon…. Mark’s mother and father were there, obviously waiting to speak with his teacher.

‘We want to show you something,’ his father said, taking a wallet out of his pocket ‘They found this on Mark when he was killed. We thought you might recognize it.’

Opening the billfold, he carefully removed two worn pieces of notebook paper that had obviously been taped, folded and refolded many times. The teacher knew without looking that the papers were the ones on which she had listed all the good things each of Mark’s classmates had said about him.

‘Thank you so much for doing that,’ Mark’s mother said… ‘As you can see, Mark treasured it.’

To open your heart means risking it all – to experience great joy and profound sorrow. — Tom Mathews
