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

6 Things Happy People Never Do

Happiness is not something you postpone for the future;
it is something you design into the present.

Happy people do a lot of things.  They spend time expressing gratitude, cultivating optimism, practicing kindness, nurturing loving relationships, committing to meaningful goals, savouring life’s little pleasures, and so on and so forth.

But they NEVER…

1.  Mind other people’s business.

Forget about what others are doing.  Stop looking at where they are and what they have.  Nobody is doing better than you because nobody can do better than you.  YOU are walking your own path.  Sometimes the reason we struggle with insecurity is because we compare our behind-the-scenes circumstances with everyone else’s public highlight reel.  We listen to the noise of the world, instead of ourselves.  So stop the comparisons!  Ignore the distractions.  Listen to your own inner voice.  Mind your own business.

Keep your best wishes and your biggest goals close to your heart and dedicate time to them every day.  Don’t be scared to walk alone, and don’t be scared to enjoy it.  Don’t let anyone’s ignorance, drama, or negativity stop you from being the best you can be.  Keep doing what you know in your heart is right, for YOU.  Because when you are focused on meaningful work and at peace within yourself, almost nothing can shake you.  (Angel and I discuss this in more detail in the “Passion and Growth” chapter of 1,000 Little Things Happy, Successful People Do Differently.)

2.  Seek validation of self-worth from others.

When you are content to simply be yourself, without comparing and competing to impress others, everyone worthwhile will respect you.  And even more importantly, you will respect yourself.

How are you letting others define you?  What would you do differently if you knew nobody would judge you?

Truth be told, no one has the right to judge you.  People may have heard your stories, and they may think they know you, but they can’t feel what you are going through; they aren’t living YOUR life.  So forget what they think and say about you.  Focus on how you feel about yourself, and keep walking the path that feels best under your feet.

Those who accept you are your friends.  Those who don’t are your teachers.  If someone calls you something and it’s true, it’s not your problem because it’s true.  If someone calls you something and it’s not true, it’s not your problem because it’s not true.  Either way, whatever they call you is not your problem.  What other people call you is their problem…

What you call yourself, and who you decide to become, is your problem.

3.  Rely on other people and external events for happiness.

Unhappiness lies in that gap between what we have now and what we think we need.  But the truth is, we don’t need to acquire anything more to be content with what we already have.  We don’t need anyone else’s permission to be happy.  Your life is magnificent not because someone says it is, or because you have acquired something new, but because you choose to see it as such.  Don’t let your happiness be held hostage.  It is always yours to choose, to live and experience.

As soon as you stop making everyone and everything else responsible for your happiness, the happier you’ll be.  If you’re unhappy now, it’s not someone else’s fault.  Take full responsibility for your own unhappiness, and you will instantly gain the ability to be happier.  Stop seeking in vain to arrange conditions that will make you happy.  Simply choose to appreciate the greatness that is yours in this moment, and the right conditions will start to line up around the contentment you seek.

The greater part of your happiness or unhappiness depends upon your outlook, and not upon our situation.  Even if things aren’t perfect right now, think of all the beauty still left around you.  A good reason to smile is always one thought away; choose to tap into it any time you like.  (Read The Gifts of Imperfection.)

4.  Hold on to resentment.

Let today be the day you stop being haunted by the ghosts from your past.  What happened in the past is just one chapter in your story; don’t close the book, just turn the page.

We’ve all been hurt by our own decisions and by others, and while the pain of these experiences is normal, sometimes it lingers for too long.  Feelings of resentment urge us to relive the same pain over and over, and we have a hard time letting go.

Forgiveness is the remedy.  It allows you to focus on the future without combating the past.  To understand the infinite potential of everything going forward is to forgive everything already behind you.  Without forgiveness, wounds can never be healed and personal growth can never be achieved.  It doesn’t mean you’re erasing the past, or forgetting what happened.  It means you’re letting go of the resentment and pain, and instead choosing to learn from the incident and move on with your life.

5.  Spend prolonged periods of time in negative environments.

You can’t make positive choices for the rest of your life without an environment that makes those choices easy, natural, and enjoyable.  So protect your spirit and potential from contamination by limiting your time with negative people and the environments they inhabit.

When other people invite you to act like victims, when they whine and moan about the unfairness of life, for example, and ask you to agree, to offer condolences, and to participate in their grievances, WALK AWAY.  When you join in that game of negativity you always lose.

Even when you’re alone, create a positive mental space for yourself.  Make it a point to give up all the thoughts that make you feel bad, or even just a few of them that have been troubling you, and see how doing that changes your life.  You don’t need negative thoughts.  They are all lies.  They solve nothing.  All they have ever given you is a false self that suffers for no reason.  (Read Buddha’s Brain.)

6.  Resist the truth.

It is a certain deathtrap when we spend our lives learning how to lie, because eventually these lies grow so strong in our minds that we become bad at seeing, telling and living our own truth.  Lives come apart so easily when they have been held together with lies.  If you resist the truth, you will live a lie every day as the truth haunts your thoughts every night.  You simply can’t get away from your truth by moving dishonestly from one place to the next.

So don’t bend; don’t water it down; don’t try to hide the truth with deception; don’t edit your own soul according to the fashion of what’s popular.  It is better to offer no explanation or excuse than a false one.  It takes courage and strength to admit the truth, but it is the only way to truly live.  Accept what is, embrace it fully, and live for the possibilities that lie ahead.

Your turn…

 

When we start looking at everything that might go wrong, we fear then to attempt.  Our opportunity today is to pay attention to any thoughts that could be vibrations of doubt and turn them into faith.  Our doubts are traitors and make us lose the good we oft might win by fearing to attempt.  But not today.  Our doubts will not have their way with us today.  Our faith shall prevail.  To Your Prevailing Faith,  Mary Morrissey

The size of your success is measured by the strength of your desire; the size of your dream; and how you handle disappointment along the way. Robert Kiyosaki

An MLM Business Is A Great Opportunity For All with a Desire to Succeed

Be aware of the big difference between inspired action and activity. Activity comes from the brain-mind and is rooted in disbelief and lack of faith – you are taking action to “make” your desire happen. Inspired action is allowing the law to work through you and to move you. Activity feels hard. Inspired action feels wonderful. May the joy be with you,  Rhonda Byrne

 

Your life is the result of the choices you make if you do not like it..You have most likely heard the term multi-level marketing or read about it with interest. Most of the Information on the Internet is not always clear about what it is. Generally speaking, it is a distribution method for a product that takes the form of direct selling Companies that use this form of marketing are bypassing the traditional retail stores and allowing independent! sales people to move their products directly to the customer What makes this type of direct selling different from other forms of direct marketing is the way commissions are paid to the affiliate sales people.

“If you don’t design your own life plan, chances are you’ll fall into someone else’s plan. And guess what they have planned for you? Not much.” Jim Rohn

After signing up with a company, a person then becomes an independent distributor. When a sale is made, a commission will be earned, but commissions can also be earned by recruiting new distributors. When these new contributors earn commissions for sales, part of this money will be given to you. Of course, the people you have recruited can then also recruit, and you will earn a small amount from the sales these people as well. Over time, you can build up a large group of distributors that are below you in the distribution sales chain. People have been able to make large incomes from this type of distribution model.

“Those who do not create the future they want must endure the future they get.”   Stan Billue

What makes this type of business so attractive is that it can be started part time from your home. In fact, part time is the best way to start any business. Keep your day Job while you focus on building up your MLM business part time. With hard work and dedication, your part time business will become a full time venture, and you will find yourself quitting your Job and working full time for yourself.

Don’t chase your Dreams, run them down. Always allow your Dreams to exceed your Memories.Stan Billue

In the past, MLM opportunities were limited to a few well known MLM companies that offered limited possibilities in an offline environment. Today with the Internet, everything has changed. There are an enormous number of products that can be sold offline, online or a combination of both. Because of the Internet,

Remember you will not always win. Some days, the most resourceful individual will taste defeat. But there is, in this case, always tomorrow – after you have done your best to achieve success today.” Maxwell Maltz 1899-1975

MLM business opportunities abound.

It is much easier for a business with a high quality product to sell it with the MLM direct selling model. Shelf space in a retail store is difficult to get and smaller companies with great products have an impossible task of getting seen by the consumer. This is why MLM opportunities are so attractive. The starts up costs for becoming a distributor are small, and the products available to sell are not only of high quality but are often unique and not seen in retail stores. Add to this, many people have been able to earn six figure incomes when affiliated with the right product.

Your present circumstances don’t determine where you can go; they merely determine where you start.” Nido Qubein

Finding the right product is a part of the formula for success. You need to take time researching the various products and decide on one that you feel comfortable with it should be something in an area that you have a passion for as well as one that has yet to saturate the market. Some of the best MLM opportunities are ones with products that are in the early phase of their product life cycle. Yet remember not all MLM companies are product based.

If I had to select one quality, one personal characteristic that I regard as being most highly correlated with success, whatever the field, I would pick the trait of persistence.”          Richard DeVos

Due diligence is required before you make your choice.  Asking other networkers advice is recommended, but look at the advice even if ever so slightly pushed to join, or Google network marketing.  Remember one thing product based MLM’s are in need of constant sales..  

You mustt take action risk failure in order to achieve successYour personal skills have to be very good, with  a determination to succeed. There is one more extremely important part of “Network Marketing” and that is the training available from whom ever you chose to join.  Should there non or an extremely limited amount of training, you are on your own. I personally have tried several MLM’s since leaving the forces, learning along the way making huge mistakes with losses, But always learning and the having the ability to be Very Very Positive and not stopping..

Set your sights high, the higher the better. Expect the most wonderful things to happen, not in the future but right now. Realize that nothing is too good. Allow absolutely nothing to hamper you or hold you up in any way.” Eileen Caddy 1917-2006, Author

As always it is up to you & no one else, remember you are going to be self employed and YOU will be very successful!  Remember these opportunities are world wide and many have been around for many years, most not all are wonderful but you have to work at it!  make sure you chose one with training and support.  I love mine but it is UK & Northern Ireland based, past experiences have seen me selling globally, but you are not dealing with people on a one to one basis, that can be harder or if you have the skills and determination with personal skills you can succeed, I know many who have. Personally I prefer to deal with people not the web.  My personal choice.

Dreams express what your soul is telling youHow can you make a big dream come true?  You need to have one secret element, and when you have that secret element, nothing will get in your way. That element is an intense desire! You must desire something with all of your heart to manifest it. Often the difference between those who manifest something and those who do not, is the element of desire. When you have a burning desire for something you ignite a fire within you that attracts with an incredible force. The law of attraction is magnetically drawn to that intense fire element in you, and it responds by gathering all universal forces to make your dream come true.                                                                                                                                              Very often we ask for things because we think our life will be better with those things, but inside of us we do not have an immense desire for those things. When you don’t feel that immense desire within you, you are receiving guidance telling you that this is not something you really want. That is why it is so important to get clear on what it is that you really want with all of your heart, because what you really want with all of your heart is the very desire that you can manifest quickly.                                                                                              When your heart is on fire with desire you will attract the right things to do, you will find visualizing so easy, and you will find it is effortless to think positive thoughts of your desire. You will attract all the qualities you need, such as strength, courage, belief, persistence, faith, and a powerful will. An intense desire lights up your being, producing a magnetic force that enables the law of attraction to cut through every physical obstacle for you and make your dream come true.                                                                                                               Dreams seem impossibleGo for your dreams! Don’t cheat yourself in your life with petty desires because you don’t think you can live your dream. THE DREAM inside you is the one thing that you have the greatest power to create, because you have an immense desire for it. Find the dream inside you – and make it come true Rhonda Byrne The Secret

Remember what ever you read anywhere or even here, your thoughts & actions help create your future, the choice is still yours.

ANTICIPATION

ANTICIPATION

From The Secret Daily Teachings

When you look at yourself and feel dissatisfaction about any part of you, you will continue to attract feelings of dissatisfaction, because the law mirrors back to you exactly what you are holding inside. Be in awe and wonder at the magnificence of you!   May the joy be with you,  Rhonda Byrne The Secret… bringing joy to billions

Anticipation vs. anxiety

If we define anxiety as experiencing failure in advance, we can also understand its antonym, anticipation.

When you work with anticipation, you will highlight the highs. You’ll double down on the things that will delight and push yourself even harder to be bold and to create your version of art. If this is going to work, might as well build something that’s going to be truly worth building.

If you work with anxiety, on the other hand, you’ll be covering the possible lost bets, you’ll be insuring against disaster and most of all, building deniability into everything you do. When you work under the cloud of anxiety, the best strategy is to play it safe, because if (when!) it fails, you’ll be blameless.

Not only is it more fun to work with anticipation, it’s often a self-fulfilling point of view.

“Although an individual may be born with a predisposition toward gloominess or anxiety, the emotional floor plan can be altered, the brain’s furniture moved to a more felicitous arrangement; with a little training, you can coax a fretful mind toward a happier outlook.” — Penelope Green

"The average human being thinks that happiness lies in stability, in tying up all the loose ends and having things under control. But actually, happiness lies in being able to relax with our true condition, which is basically fleeting, dynamic, and fluid, not in any way solid, not in any way permanent. It’s transient by nature."— Pema Chödrön

 

Know yourself! Watch how you manifest the small things in life and think about how you felt inside with those things. Think about how easily they came. You will find that you thought of a small thing once and never thought about it again, and then it manifested.

What really happened was you didn’t think any thoughts or speak any words which contradicted what you wanted, so the law of attraction was able to do its work.

May the joy be with you, – Rhonda Byrne The Secret

From The Secret Daily Teachings

It is so important that you are grateful for everything in your life. Many people focus on the one thing they want and then forget to be grateful for all the things they have. Without gratitude you cannot achieve anything through the law of attraction, because if you are not emanating gratitude from your being, then by default you are emanating ungratefulness. Be proactive and use the frequency of your being to receive what you want.   May the joy be with you,                          Rhonda Byrne   The Secret… bringing joy to billions

 

How To Let Your Brilliant Being Shine

 

I recently came across one of my favorite poems, My Brilliant Image, by the fourteenth century Persian Poet, Hafiz:

Mary O'MalleyOne day the sun admitted,
I am just a shadow.
I wish I could show you
The Infinite Incandescence
That has cast my brilliant image!
I wish I could show you,
When you are lonely or in darkness,
The astonishing Light
Of your own Being!

Hafiz is telling us that the astonishing light, the brilliance of our own being, is already with us.  We are filled with great light that permeates everything.    Brian Swimme, Evolutionary Philosopher and Co-Collaborator of the documentary film, Journey of the Universe, calls it “allurement”.  What we are talking about here is love.  Allurement and love mean the same thing.  It is allurement that brings the particles and atoms together.  It is allurement that brings atoms into communities called molecules.  And it is allurement that is bringing us into the awareness of our truth, the astonishing light of our own being.  This is exactly what Eben Alexander, author of Proof of Heaven, and Anita Moorjani, author of Dying to Be Me, experienced while lying in a hospital room in a coma.  They both discovered that “heaven” is a state, not a place.  This astonishing light or “state of heaven” is everything…it is the earth, the plants, the air, the wind, the trees, the animals, all of that, and it is also YOU!   Yet, most of us don’t realize it.  Like Sleeping Beauty, we pricked our finger on the spindle of the mental world and we have gone to sleep.

I use the meadow metaphor in my book, What’s In the Way IS the Way, to illustrate the beauty of our being.  It includes flow, spaciousness, light, love and stillness, and it has always been with us.  But, we haven’t noticed these qualities of the meadow in ourselves because we have so often been engulfed in struggle.  When we are in a dark place, facing any challenging situation in our lives, most of us are caught in our minds and we don’t see the beautiful meadow.  We only see the cloud bank around our heads.  But, as we begin to bring awareness to the struggling self, we begin to realize that the meadow has always been there.

Even if we only see these glimpses of the struggling self for a brief moment, this is a moment of consciousness.  I like to call this moment of consciousness “Look to Unhook”.   Rather than identifying with the feelings, one way to unhook from them is to say “I am sensing in me something that feels lonely” rather than “I feel lonely” or “I am sensing in me something that is terrified” rather than “I am terrified”.  When we are identified with the feelings that fear brings up inside of us, we feel cut off from life.  When we can say to ourselves “I See You”, we are relating to the loneliness or darkness, rather than from it.  By doing this, we begin to create a relationship with that young part of us that was conditioned into a world of fear.  Eventually we can learn to be with our feelings for longer periods of time, but it is a process.  The first step is recognizing what is going on inside of us and then realizing that our states of mind are just stories in our heads.   Then, we can begin to see the light and love that we are as we learn to bring spaciousness to these dark, lonely, fearful states of mind.  And, like Sleeping Beauty who was kissed by the Prince, we can begin to wake up.  The Prince called Life is waking us up.
