Successful Networker What you wear Behind the Mask

Real optimism is aware of problems but recognizes solutions; knows about difficulties but believes they can be overcome; sees the negatives, but accentuates the positives; is exposed to the worst but expects the best; has reason to complain, but chooses to smile. — William Arthur Ward

This arrived today, poems and PMA is added the true story is unchanged and I felt it needed it’s own page and a worthy page as well!

smile like you have never cried , fight like you have never lostDon’t be fooled by the face I wear, for I wear a thousand masks, And none of them are me.  Don’t be fooled, for goodness sake, don’t be fooled. 

I give you the impression that I’m secure, that confidence is my name and coolness is my game, And that I need no one.  But don’t believe me. 

Beneath dwells the real me in confusion, in aloneness, in fear. That’s why I create a mask to hide behind, to shield me from the glance that knows, But such a glance is precisely my salvation. 

That is, if it’s followed by acceptance, if it’s followed by love. It’s the only thing that can liberate me from my own self-built prison walls. I’m afraid that deep down I’m nothing and that I’m just no good, And that you will reject me. 

And so begins the parade of masks. I idly chatter to you. I tell you everything that’s really nothing and Nothing of what’s everything, of what’s crying within me. 

Please listen carefully and try to hear what I’m not saying. I’d really like to be genuine and spontaneous, and me. But you’ve got to help me. You’ve got to hold out your hand. 

Each time you’re kind and gentle, and encouraging, each time you try to understand because you really care, My heart begins to grow wings, feeble wings, but wings. 

With your sensitivity and sympathy, and your power of understanding, You alone can release me from my shallow world of uncertainty.

It will not be easy for you. The nearer you approach me, the blinder I may strike back.

But I’m told that Love is stronger than strong walls, And in this lies my only hope. 

Please try to beat down these walls with firm hands, But gentle hands, for a child is very sensitive. 

Who am I, you wonder. I am every man you meet, and also every woman that you meet,     And I am you, also.

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

Take your time; there is no other time. Even when everything seems to accelerate beyond control – especially then – take your time.

Time does not exist as an objective thing; it depends completely on your perception and your connection with yourself. If you are present, in touch with how you experience reality and open to what you are experiencing, then you are the master of time, not its slave.

How do we do that? The method is simple: it has a few basic steps that require no particular skills, talents or techniques. It is called “practicing presence”.

I imagine that you, like me, want to live life and not just survive. I assume that you too want to experience life’s fullness and richness. I know that you too have asked yourself at least once, “Is this all there is to life?” There is an answer to that: presence.

It is the answer to all questions because it is the only quality that allows you to find your answers and those are the only answers that will satisfy your thirst and your longing.

Very often, it seems very difficult to take time for yourself, to find, even conceive, the possibility that you can live according to your rhythm. At times, nearly impossible. And yes, it’s not easy because pretty much everything in the world as we know it is there to distract us.

What is easy is getting lost in other people, in objects, in projects, in worrying, in acquiring and running after… and yet if we can just stop for a second and ask ourselves these questions: Who is getting lost? Who is running? Who is reading right now?

Just by asking this WHO, we are already a little less lost, a little less on the run, a little more present. And, then the next question is, present to who? To the only one that can be aware of the running and the getting lost and the reading and the asking… YOU!

You are the miracle, the fundamental awareness that recognizes each event, moment, potential, tendency, relation, emotion, sensation, and thought that is this life you want to live fully.

So the first step is: ask the question and take the time to feel the presence of the experiencer. You will be getting in touch, little by little, with what I call the Authentic Self: the unique manifestation that you are.

The second step is: remember your Self. Once you recognize that you exist at the very centre of your every moment, then just take the time to stop in that moment and remember: I am the experiencer.

The third step is: remember when you forget. Embrace your forgetting. There is no need for guilt, no need for self judgment, just notice, “Oh, I forgot!” And you will be instantaneously back and connected.

This is a practice, my friend. Something that will take time and intention and commitment, but the passion that you will find, the joy in being present, the delight for the richness of any experience, and the gratefulness….

Inspired Quote of the Day

What really matters to me is that we are all capable of living spectacular lives; we don’t need to be limited by our pasts or our circumstances, there is greatness in all of us. ~ Dr. Judith Wright

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

For a long time, I thought the formula for a good life was setting and meeting goals, achieving, being good, being nice, being perfect, hiding vulnerability and weakness, and not making mistakes.

What I’ve learned from my life experience and from my research with people who live great lives is that a good life is just the opposite-and these six key elements are key:

YEARN–Life isn’t about getting what you want or meeting your goals; it’s about following your deeper yearning.
I was good at meeting goals–being a good student, succeeding at my career, losing weight–but meeting goals didn’t make me satisfied and happy. It was only when I learned to guide my life by the yearnings underneath my goal-chasing¬–to love and be loved; be seen, heard, known, touch and be touched; to matter; to make a difference–that I was fulfilled. Rather than waiting to achieve a goal, I could meet my yearnings in the moment–and ironically, I accomplished more goals!

ENGAGE-Be messy. Get hurt. Make mistakes. Be embarrassed. Risk. Be made fun of. Be in the moment, be spontaneous, live unedited.
As a recovering uptight person, I can tell you life is more fun when you live it full out. Being good, being right, looking cool, and not making mistakes aren’t the secrets to happiness. Life is a playground– play hard and be willing to get hurt, screw up, be out there, and have fun.

REVELATE–Look for your “BS”–your bulls#*t and your faulty Belief Systems. Wake up and live consciously.
We all have limiting beliefs that keep us from fulfilling our potential and rationalizations, excuses, and indulgences in soft addictions that dim our consciousness and keep us stuck. (My culprits: my mistaken belief of I have to be perfect to be loved and my (former!) soft addictions of over shopping, watching TV, and poring over catalogues.) Uncover your unconscious programming and habits that keep you from the life you yearn for. Challenge your limiting beliefs and behaviours–
open up, seek out tough feedback, and live consciously.

LIBERATE–Live Bold. Break the Rules.
I tried hard to obey the rules, be good, be nice, and not make waves, but it was only when I was willing to break rules, overcome limiting beliefs, and not strive to conform and fit in, that I broke free to live my dreams. People who live spectacular lives make growth choices, not safe ones. Risk being censured and attacked. Say the unsayable, do the impossible. Be bold, daring, audacious.

REMATRIX–Change your mind and your brain, and you can change your life.
I needed to do more than change my mind–I had to change my brain to change my life! To make lasting changes we have to activate our brain’s neuroplasticity to build new neural circuits–to build new beliefs, feelings, actions–and that takes intention, focused attention, stretching at the edge of our ability, and continuous repetition. Take charge of your life and reprogram yourself with empowering beliefs, feelings, and behaviours. Consciously engage in your own transformation!

DEDICATE–Embrace it all.
I used to think that only the good stuff mattered–when things worked out, I did well, or I was happy. Now I know that everything is part of the transformational journey–ups and downs, successes and failures, fear and joy, hurt and love, despair and bliss. Embrace all life’s experiences and feel them fully–cry crocodile tears, tremble with fear, shake with anger, and bubble with joy. If you can deal with your feelings and encourage yourself through the challenges, you don’t need to avoid life. Dedicate to a constantly evolving, fully-lived life!

There is greatness in all of us, yet we need to activate and develop that greatness to become who we could become. When we do, life is an exciting adventure of perpetual transformation, great love, fulfilment, and service.

Above all  else never think you are not good enough

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…

The most important gift that you can give yourself, and the world, is to live an authentic life. This takes a lot of courage and commitment as society tends to pull you in all different directions, pushing you to be everything and anything but who you wish to be yourself.

If you want to live an inspired life, it’s vital that you are true to you, what your dreams and visions are and what kind of life you would love to lead, not somebody else’s idea of what that is. It’s time for you to honour yourself and your passions and start living YOUR life on your terms!

Surround yourself with people who uplift and encourage you to live the life of your dreams! They say that you become like those you spend time with, so it’s important to connect with people who inspire you and bring out the absolute best in you every time you interact! I have found this to be one of the most beautiful experiences on my journey, the friends that I have met that have helped me to reconnect with my true inner self and shine are such precious souls and I am very grateful for having them in my life!

You are totally unique and special in every way, there’s not one other person that has ever walked the earth that has been like you and there never will be! You have gifts and talents that only you can share in such an inspiring way, and there are others waiting for you to step into your inner power and share those gifts and talents with them. Spend some time identifying what you are good at and what makes your heart sing, and then share your gifts with the world!

Develop a healthy love for yourself: you are gorgeous in every way! The most important relationship that you will ever have is with yourself. Every relationship you have in life is a direct reflection of how you feel about yourself. The more you fall in love with you, the more you fall in love with the world!

Sometimes you’re so busy going about your daily life, you forget to take time out for yourself to reflect on who you are and where your life is going, always living in the head space and not communing with your heart space. There’s a beautiful essence within each and every one of you waiting to be heard, calling you to your highest life, but a lot of the time you’re ‘too busy’ to listen! When you take time to be still, to be present and just allow your inner being to speak to you, your life will flow like never before.

Keep things light and laugh a lot. Life can be filled with many peaks and valleys, however, how you respond to what happens in your environment is up to you. The lens that you look through determines the life that you live, so adopting a happy demeanour definitely lends itself to living an inspired life!

Make your life matter… Making a commitment to be a beneficial presence on the planet in whatever way that speaks to you, this is what elevates you from the realm of the ordinary to the extraordinary! Asking yourself, "What can I bring to the world?" instead of "What can I get from the world?" can be one of the most important questions you will ever ask yourself. Leave the world a better place!

Know your own mind, and you will be as wise as the sages.
When you take charge of your mind, you take charge of your life. When you understand your thoughts, feelings, emotions, and desires, you can direct them to any end you choose. Wisdom comes from taking the time to study yourself, to know why you are the person you are. Taking charge of your mind is a thoughtful, reflective, solitary process. Only you can come to understand the complex inner workings of your own mind, and you must be willing to spend the time and effort that gaining such insight requires. Napoleon Hill
