Develope yourself

Change your mental attitude, and the world around you will change accordingly.
Your world will become what you choose to make it. You can reach great heights of success, or you can settle for a miserable life that is devoid of hope. The choice is yours. When you choose a positive course, you set in motion an unstoppable force that will allow you to have a fulfilling career, the love of your family and friends, good physical and mental health, and all of the other true riches of life. To change your world, you must change it from the inside out. You must begin with yourself. When you choose the course that puts your life on a positive track, you will change your life for the better, and you will also positively influence the people with whom you come in contact.            Napoleon Hill

Develop your core self.
‘ ‘Human beings are the only creatures who do not mature automatically. A baby chick has no choice but to turn into a chicken. But the world is full of people stuck in childhood and adolescence, no matter how old they happen to be. For us, to mature is a decision: Adulthood is an achievement, one that requires—and results in—personal power.
This can takes decades, but it starts with a vision of the "core self." This is the part of you that connects to reality, placing you at the centre of experiences that you personally create. To have a core self is to be the author of your own story; it is the exact opposite of being a victim, who must live a life authored by others.

Powerful thinking creates a powerful energy in your life, but it all starts with a powerful heart “Heart Set” which creates a “Powerful Mind Set”

Align yourself with the flow of evolution, or personal growth.
Once you establish your core self as a goal, your path will unfold and you will evolve. This evolution is wobbly at first; everyone has at least some elements of ignorance and immaturity. But’ ‘thanks to free will, you can help guide your own evolution. The simple fact is that we all desire more and better things for ourselves. If those more and better things are good for our growth, then we are guiding our own positive and powerful evolution. In India they make a distinction between dharma and adharma. Dharma includes whatever naturally upholds life: happiness, truth, duty, virtue, wonder, worship, reverence, appreciation, nonviolence, love, self-respect. On the other hand, adharma consists of choices that do not support life naturally: anger, violence, fear, control, dogmatism, scepticism, unvirtuous acts, prejudice, addiction, intolerance, and unconsciousness in general.
For our purposes, dharma is the ultimate power. It easily supports you, a single individual. What is asked of you is that you honestly look at your everyday life and the choices you are making. Ask yourself how to increase the dharmic
choices and decrease the adharmic ones.

You learn in life that the only person you can really correct and change is yourself.   You never achieve real success unless you like what you are doing.    Your own mind is a sacred enclosure into which nothing harmful can enter except by your permission.  Stan Billue

 

Trust in a power that transcends everyday reality.
Nothing described so far will come true without a higher reality. For the moment, let’s leave aside religion and any reference to God. Fortunately, to have even a speck of consciousness is to be connected to the finite consciousness that supports life, evolution, creativity, and intelligence. None of these things are accidental or a privilege handed out to the lucky few.
To use a metaphor, imagine that you are caught in a net. All nets have holes, so find one, and jump through it. I’ve known wives of abusive husbands who found a hole through, say, learning to paint. For them, it was an escape route, and as they made art, their thinking changed from "I am trapped and can do nothing" to "I must be worth more than I imagined, because look at this beautiful thing I created." Escape routes exist along the qualities hidden in consciousness. They include:
Creativity. Go beyond by discovery and exploration. This leads to insight. Your inner vision clears. You start to see glimmers of light through the fog of your situation. Something more beautiful starts to attract you, and you want to go toward it.
Intelligence. Let your mind lead the way. You start having newer, more exciting thoughts than the old habitual ones you’ve been following. Beliefs are challenged. New points of view attract you, so you move toward them. You’ll want to expand your mind in place of living behind defences and boundaries.
Love and compassion. Discover that you can forgive yourself and others. Fantasies of hurt and revenge are replaced with emotional softening. You see that there is untapped love around you, so you move toward it. The fact that you desire to love and be loved starts to motivate you, without excuses about being unworthy.
Quantum leaps. Notice—and learn—when you have an epiphany, a moment of dramatic awakening. These are the great "aha" experiences that peel away an entire layer of reality. We say that the heavens open, but really it’s a new level of consciousness, one that brings more light.
Devotion. Understand that life is full of awe and wonder. From this you see a reason to revere your own existence. You have been placed in a world where you can be devoted to something, and your worship gives you a sense of worth.
These escape routes all lead back to the person you really are, and that person know that what really counts extends far beyond the individual: the glory of creation, the beauty of nature, the heart qualities of love and compassion, the mental power to discover new things, and those unexpected epiphanies that bring the presence of God—these universal aspects are your true source of power. They are you, and you are all of them.

Our highest power is love, and it is one thing each of us has an unlimited amount of. How much love do you give to others in one day? Each day we have an opportunity to set out with this great, unlimited power in our possession, and pour it over every person and circumstance. Love is appreciating, complimenting, feeling gratitude, and speaking good words to others We have so much love to give, and the more that we give, the more we receive. May the joy be with you, The Secret Rhonda Byrne

PMA Added to a wonderful message for all peoples..

The world is full of miracles. They stand in shinning silence next to every dream of pain and suffering, of sin and guilt. They are the dream’s alternative, the choice to be the dreamer, rather than deny the active role in making up the dream.- Miracles

The stuff of which you are made is so charged with the ability to create that everything you touch comes to life; every thought, every identity, every image. – the Starseed transmissions

There was a blind girl  who hated herself because she was blind.

She hated everyone, except her loving boyfriend.  He was always there for her.

She told her boyfriend, “If I could only see the world, I will marry you”.

One day, someone donated a pair of eyes to her.  When the bandages came off, she was able to see everything, including her boyfriend.

He asked her, now that you can see the world, will you marry me? “

The girl looked at her boyfriend and saw that he was blind.  The sight of his closed eyelids shocked her.  She hadn’t expected that.  The thought of looking at them the rest of her life led her to refuse to marry him.

Her boyfriend left her in tears and days later wrote a note to her saying: “Take good care of your eyes, my dear, for before they were yours they were mine.”

This is how the human brain often works when our status changes.

Only a very few remember what life was like before,and who was always by their side in the most painful situations.

Life is a gift

Today before you say an unkind word,  Think of someone who can’t speak.

Before you complain about the taste of your food – Think of someone who has nothing to eat.

Before you complain about your husband or wife- Think of someone who’s crying out to ALMIGHTY GOD for a companion.

Today before you complain about life;

think of someone who died to young.

Before you complain about your children;

Think of someone who desires children but they are barren.

Before you argue about your dirty house someone did not clean or sweep;

Think of the people who are living in the streets.

Before whining about the distance you drive;

Think of someone who walk’s the the same distance with their feet.

And when you are tired and complain about your job;

Think of the unemployed, the disabled, and those who wish they had your job.

But before you think of pointing the finger or condemning another;

Remember that not one of us is without sin and we all answer to one MAKER.

And when depressing thoughts seem to get you down; put a smile on your face and thank GOD you are alive and still around.

And before you think of closing, Please think of sending this to as many people as you like… It might change someone’s thinking towards LIFE.

Remain Blessed..Always. from  a dear and thoughtful friend.

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

Every event that you chose for your life, no matter how destructive, chaotic or miserable it may seem, has been allowed to manifest because your Wholeness has an innate knowledge of those things you need to get you to the place where you will chose to sink deep within, into the stillness of who you are. – Bartholamew

Winning in life is more than just money; it is about winning on the inside and knowing that you have played the game of life with all you had, and then some!

Dreams do come True Rhonda Byrne

How 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.  

Go 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!  

Here is the story of an 18-year-old girl – her dream – and her intense desire to make her dream come true.

From Rachael in Indiana

When I was in third grade I told my mother that I wanted to go to the University of Notre Dame. I remember going to meetings at age 13 about what it took to get in – that’s how bad I wanted it. I knew everything it took and used this knowledge to my advantage. Notre Dame will not accept someone merely because they get a good score on the SAT, it takes so much more.

I told everyone I talked to, new friends and old friends, that I would be attending the University of Notre Dame. The response was almost ALWAYS THE SAME: "Wow, isn’t that school hard to get into? Don’t you have to be really smart?" They would wish me good luck in a "you really need it" tone. I never let this sway me.

Before every football game, Notre Dame would play a commercial showing a girl taking "the letter" out of her mailbox. I CRIED EVERY TIME (because I could FEEL – with so much intensity – how I would feel when I came to that day).

When it came time to apply I was more stressed out than I had ever been in my life, but I still continued to tell people that I would be going there. Sometimes a thought would creep into my head saying, "What if I’ve been telling everyone that I’m going there and then I don’t get in?" Every time I’d stop and say, "NO, I will not let myself think these thoughts." And I would continue to imagine and to feel the feelings of coming home and seeing the letter sitting on the table.

On March 28, 2008, I got a call from my step-father telling me that I had to come home, "RIGHT NOW". When I got home I saw the letter and felt every feeling that I had felt previously in my mind – only magnified. The letter said, "Welcome Home".

I have never wanted anything more in my entire life. I have never KNOWN something more intensely. I KNEW that Notre Dame was the place for me, was my home (I guess God, The Universe, knew too).

With Empathy, Together We Fly

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

· I invite you to be kind and listen. Some of you may know this as empathy or compassion, or the concern for what people are feeling and needing. I would invite you to practice the empathic thought…”I wonder what’s going on for this person?”, or “I wonder how I can be of service to them?”

Learn to see empathy as more than just ‘swapping shoes’. Empathy is an action plan, a practice where we guess what people are feeling, along with a language where we ask them if they’re feeling what we are guessing.  See empathy as an action where we act on our guess by adding ‘ing’ to Compassion, ‘Compassioning’, and see empathy as a need we all have for deep understanding.

We can say “No” with Compassion, just by saying what prevents us from saying “Yes”. I remember the look of absolute serenity on my friends face once, when I responded to their question with, “My need to follow my Heart, prevents me from saying ‘Yes’”!

I would also invite you to receive gratitude from someone, whole-heartedly, with the same love & energy it was given. For example, when someone thanked me for driving them to the airport recently, I responded with “I’m so glad that I could help”, instead of “No problem”. It’s really important to know how to give and receive gratitude, compassionately.

I would invite you to start your day off with yoga, meditation and exercise, as I have found it offers a foundation that catapults me into Present Moment Synergy, completely. I’d invite you to be “Selful”, in relation to selfish or selfless, where everyone’s needs are honoured, valued and attended to, as I’ve noticed it really brings a balance to my day that is expansive.

I’d invite you to try ‘Acupressure Breath Tapping’, combined with Affirmations, as they can be FUN things to do in the car, especially after a 40 second Smiling practice.

I would definitely invite you to sing positive songs during the day, as it’s awesome how they can become a self-fulfilling prophecy!

As I invite myself to see that which matters most to me, it becomes crystal clear that it’s the love of my friends and family, and the big reasons we do what we do, not the small vehicles that take us where we think we want to go.

If FUN is on your agenda, I invite you to play, juice and read. I also philosophically invite you to “Accentuate the Unity, before Celebrating the Diversity”, because I believe it’s important to refrain from diminishing people’s humanity.

The way I see it, life’s a celebration, especially when we observe, without evaluation.

Be grateful today, my friends, and let me know if you find some FUN ways to ‘Be Kind And Listen’ today.

Emaste’: Emaho…exclamation of wonder and amazement and Namaste’…the God in me, sees the God in you!

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

When we are young, life seems endless, days last forever and we feel invincible. As the years creep by, and you hit those twilight years the days ahead are shorter, move faster and you feel anxious because you are running out of time and have not accomplished all you wanted to do.

A few years ago, I was in a serious car accident. My car was going uncontrollably fast off the interstate towards a large tree. My life quickly running through my head, I thought of my family whom I would be leaving prematurely. Then I reconciled and said, “Lord, I am yours.” At that very moment, it was if God spun the car so that the impact was on the side and not head-on. As I hung on tightly and squeezed my eyes shut, I felt the car roll and roll and roll. Suddenly I heard the voice of a truck driver, yelling for me to get out of the car, that it was smoking and would catch on fire. I escaped with only minor eye lacerations from the broken glass.

After the accident, I wondered about the meaning of my life. What was I spared to do? If I only had one day left, what words of wisdom would I pass on to humanity? I have often wondered about this question. What can I leave behind to improve people’s lives on earth?

These words are what come to mind: “Impossible” is for those people who do not have determination to make it possible.

You are only limited by the restrictions you place on yourself. As a parent, I always instructed my children that “can’t” is not a word in their vocabulary. That has remained etched in their minds even to this today. I’ve taken this message to students as I mentored and volunteered with at-risk children in low performing schools. This simple message has encouraged them to excel.

What matters most is to believe in yourself and treat others with respect and compassion. Love who you are and embrace the beautiful creature that God has made. Don’t let naysayers feed your doubts. We all have the God-given power within to overcome challenges and rise above any turmoil to succeed. The key is to believe and have faith that you can. The hard times you go through are just building, strengthening and preparing you for greatness.

Remember that even the most brilliant diamond was created under extreme pressure. Be that diamond that shines brilliantly. With that light you will be able to help others see.

“I have lost most of my sight, but I have a huge vision for my life and the world.”  – Dr. Elizabeth M. Wisniewski

Every person, all the events of your life are there because you have drawn them there. What you chose to do with them is up to you. From the book Illusions.
