Attitude- Habit your constant companion

“We all have greatness within us that is waiting for us to believe. Once we believe, the foundation is in place for our greatness to take a foothold and grow.” – Deidre Hughey

Attitude … is the “The Power of One Person YOU"

Getting the best from yourself and others all starts with one: one thought … one word … one action.
Man horse shoe feeling good“One” is the first note in orchestrating the personal attitude that shapes and directs your life – and impacts the members of your team. Contrary to the lyrics from a classic rock song, one is not the loneliest number. It’s the most important one!
Your thoughts, words, and actions are like individual notes that work in concert to create the power of one person – YOU – to make a difference. You can harness your “power of one” if you simply:

  • Catch one negative thought and turn it into a positive one;
  • Think of one thing for which you are grateful at the beginning of each day;
  • Say one “Fantastic!” when a friend or team member asks how you are doing;
  • Assume the best in an upcoming situation;
  • Keep on moving one more time when you experience adversity;
  • Help one friend or colleague in a time of need – and take pride in it.  Do not expect something in return.

Many people used to feel that one vote in an election couldn’t really make a difference. Recent political elections that have been decided by razor thin margins have proven them wrong.

A single act can make a difference … it can create a ripple effect Winnerfelt many miles and people away. So, ask yourself: What’s one thing I can do today that will make a positive difference in my attitude? Then DO IT!
Repeat that process every day and your life will improve – and so will the lives of the people you lead. Attitudes are truly powerful … and they’re contagious!  For all the right reasons..

 

Companion

I am your constant companion.
I am your greatest helper or heaviest burden.
I will push you onward or drag you down to failure.
I am completely at your command.
Half the things you do might just as well be turned over to me, and I will be able to do them quickly and correctly.
I am easily managed – you must merely be firm with me.
Show me exactly how you want something done, and after enough lessons, I will do it automatically.
I am the servant of all great people and, alas, of all failures.
Those who are great, I have made great.
Those who are failures, I have made failures.
I am not a machine, though I work with the precision of a machine and the intelligence of a person.
You may run me for profit or run me for ruin – it makes no difference to me.
Take me, train me, and be firm with me, and I will place the world at your feet.
Be easy with me and I will destroy you.
Who am I?
I am habit!

 

From The Secret Daily Teachings

The process of creation is the same for all things, whether you want to bring something to you or remove something negative from your life.

If you have a habit you wish to break, or anything negative you wish to remove from your life, you must focus on what you want. That means you visualize and imagine yourself in that negative-free state right now. Imagine yourself in as many scenes as you possibly can where the negative situation is completely absent. Imagine yourself happy and free. Eliminate any picture from your mind of you with the negative situation. Just imagine yourself in the state you want to be in, and feel that you are that, right now.

May the joy be with you – Rhonda Byrne

 

Belief
There is a difference between wishing for a thing and being ready to receive it. No one is ready for a thing until he believes he can acquire it. The state of mind must be belief, not mere hope or wish. Open-mindedness is essential for belief. Closed minds do not inspire faith, courage, and belief. Napoleon Hill

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?

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

The greatest power we have is the power of choice. It’s an actual fact that if you’ve been moping in unhappiness, you can choose to be joyous instead and, by effort, lift yourself into joy. If you tend to be fearful, you can overcome that misery by choosing to have courage. Even in darkest grief you have a choice – The whole trend and quality of anyone’s life is determined in the long run by the choices that are made.” Norman Vincent Peale

 

What Your Top Priorities Should Be

Connections, Health, Priorities, Simplicity, Wealth

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

SIMPLICITY

Enjoy and embrace simplicity.

No, that doesn’t mean poverty. Nor is that the polar opposite of wealth. Living simply is experiencing and appreciating the small things in life that are taken for granted by those constantly looking outside of themselves for happiness.

Real happiness will never be found in a pill, television, car, or iPod. This materialistic view will result in a never-ending pursuit of “things” that never quite fill the hole trying to be filled. In fact, it only grows with the more “things” you acquire. Instead, the key to happiness is found by satisfying the needs that should be natural and commonplace for all of mankind.

HEALTH

The things that make us human are the very same things that are lacking in the lives of those lost in their world of materialism. The first of these qualities is optimal health. Most of us are born with all the potential in to world to be healthy and happy. Yet in our quest for financial freedom, we get lost in the rat race. We neglect and sacrifice our own health for a few bucks. In the end, we are the ones that suffer with increased medical costs and, worse yet, a decreased quality of life.

There is an old saying that “he who dies with the most toys wins”. That statement could not be farther from the truth. Your health is all you have. Every time you avoid fast foods and choose wholesome natural foods, you are investing in yourself and your future.When you choose to exercise instead of playing video games, you circulate life-providing blood, oxygen, and nutrients throughout your body.

Nothing pays higher dividends than the healthy lifestyles that provide the nourishment you need to function at optimal levels. In order to enjoy the toys you do acquire during this lifetime, make sure you live long enough to truly enjoy them.

RELATIONSHIPS

The need to connect is so obvious when you see the popularity of social networking websites. There is a valuable lesson to be learned here. Help and support your community and they will support you. Living in fear inside four walls and a ceiling, you will miss out on so much growth and support available to you. A stranger is only a friend you’ve yet to meet. When you find your family, friends, and people, live for them.

“Let us be grateful to the people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.” Marcel Proust 1871-1922, Novelist

Just Be… A Timeless Treasure

Topics: Being Present, Guidance, Mindfulness, Possibility

MaryAnn-DAmbrosio

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

While mystics, philosophers and seekers of truth have been pondering this for thousands of years… the mystery of life was unceremoniously revealed to me one Saturday afternoon..

What began as an ordinary weekend of classes became extraordinary. An unannounced curriculum change opened our class to a special session. Richard, a third year student skilled at shamanic work, had been selected to take us first year students on a shamanic journey.

I was hesitant about visiting “invisible worlds” beyond ordinary reality. The thought of venturing to “Lower World” to meet and receive a gift from our power animal was scary. Suddenly a familiar inner voice whispered, “You’ll be fine. Trust the process and your inner guidance.” Instantly, meeting my power animal intrigued me and I began to wonder about the gift.

Richard prepared us for Lower World by describing the process and landscape. During the journey he would beat a drum and stated that when we saw an animal, we should ask if it was our power animal. If the animal responded “yes”, remember to ask for the gift. The journey began….

I stepped out of the tunnel into “Lower World,” and saw reddish-brown earth, tall trees, and very few animals. In fact, several minutes passed before seeing an animal that said no, it was not my power animal. There was however, this little bee that suddenly appeared three times during the adventure and then continued to follow me. Much to my surprise, the bee said, “YES” when asked if it was my power animal.

Upon returning from the journey, three classmates eagerly shared their experience describing elaborate adventures with their bear, dolphin, and eagle power animals. Initially, I felt out of place. My tiny “bee” didn’t hold a candle to the larger animals. And yet, when Richard inquired about my power animal and the gift, amazingly – everything clicked.

I recalled the bee saying, “Just Bee” as the gift. Interesting… nothing other than the bee. The bee, a symbol of accomplishing the impossible, became a powerful reminder of anything is possible. Aerodynamically, the bee’s body is too large for its wings and should not be able to fly.

A second later, I realized the gift contained within itself a deeper meaning. The bee presented just “be” as a timeless treasure. Now, it made perfect sense.

Just be… here, in the now – fully present!

Be present, it’s the gift you give to others! When you’re fully present with someone they feel acknowledged.

Just be… in the moment.

This practice allows access to unlimited creativity and opportunities that would go unnoticed if thinking about a past or future event!

Just be… yourself.

Everyone else is taken. Be who you are fully – without pretense. Showing up as you truly matters!

Love is the highest power we possess to be in complete harmony with the law of attraction. The more love we feel the greater our power. The more selfless love we feel, the more unfathomable our power. The law of attraction has been called the law of love, because the law itself is a gift of love to humanity. It is the law by which we can create incredible lives for ourselves. The more love we feel the greater our power to create a magnificent life of love, joy, and harmony.

School of HP: If it is Love it will Succeed…

Allen VaysbergAll my life I believed in something greater. In searching for the meaning of my existence, I noticed certain trends and patterns in life that were woven in. Only later I understood what I had an inkling of before and the Law of Attraction and Universal principles were revealed.

I realized that I wasn’t the only one searching and that there were many disciplines that attempted to comprehend the Universe as well as our place in it. I explored many spiritual practices diving deeper into certain ones. There are many out there such as Astrology, Numerology, Palmistry, Iridology, Past Life Regression, Face reading, Toe reading, Feng Shui, and a great deal more I haven’t mentioned. All of them pull the curtains back and allow us to witness the grand plan and the beauty of the world we all live in. I believe that all of them are wonderful and useful but something within realized that not one of them is perfect and provides the whole truth.

To that point, I am reminded of a fable of the mirror of truth…. long time ago there was a mirror of truth and then it was broken into millions of pieces and spread across the worlds by the great winds. Every once in a while, someone finds a piece, looks into it and proclaims that they see truth, when in fact they only see a piece of it. And that is how I look at all of aforementioned disciplines – they are not the absolute but rather a part of the larger puzzle. Thus, as much as I followed certain principles I was never fully immersed by them. Which brings us to School of Human Potential and this week with a bit of background.

What_you_believeThe idea of the school came to me in 2009 as I was trying to find a way to help modern people become well-rounded individuals. Not until end of 2012 did I put that idea into motion. Of important note is when I say the idea came to me I mean in a manner that some would call “Divine Inspiration” and others refer to as “Guidance” or “Channelling”.  I have been blessed to have that channel of communication open since information started pouring out of me in writing poetry as a child. Thus a “channelled state” is something that is natural and I get “ideas” or “knowing” all the time which has helped me in every facet of my life. Therefore, at the end of 2013, I established the domain, FB and Twitter profiles, started on the logos, web design, trademarks and the setup of the business.  Everyone I spoke with loved the logo, idea for the company, etc.

My last two successful business ventures were opened with a certain numerological philosophy in mind. I had vetted the name of the enterprise as well as the start date with the people that subscribe to that philosophy because I partially believed in its merits and decided that it wouldn’t hurt. With School of Human Potential I forgot!  I was so inspired to bring it to the world that the thought really hadn’t crossed my mind until much later in the process of actually incorporating.

Thus in a hurry to get a consensus opinion I reached out to a person suggested by those I trust who subscribes to a specific Astrology wing who came back with a recommended date. And the next day I reached out to the numerology people to do the same. Upon speaking with the person who helped my last two businesses with the name and timing I was told in very harsh terms that School of Human Potential is a terrible name, would never succeed and the date of incorporation I was planning on (suggested by the trusted expert on Astrology) is just as ill-guided as the name itself. Putting aside the presentation of that information and the tone with which it was presented, I sustained a direct hit. Here is my baby, my divinely inspired idea to help the world that is about to be launched, just received a horrific diagnosis.

I found myself in a state of confused aggression and had to do calming meditation just to raise my vibrations, release the diagnosis and the negativity. I turned to others to see if I was making a mistake and tried to get more overwhelming consensus from third parties of my being right and the numerology being wrong or not applicable. A wonderful psychic friend of mine said I will succeed. My beautiful, supportive and highly analytical wife had me walk through an exercise of how much I believe numerology actually would affect the success of the venture. I decided last night all was going to work out well and went to sleep, only to awake in the same confused state this morning.

“Needing” more help, I attempted to reach out to my psychic friends and ask them for advice. Oddly enough, nobody was readily available (which is a Universal sign that “you are not supposed to ask them”). Furthermore, when I saw my friend and mentor Lisa Williams online and was about to ask her the question, I heard her voice in my head saying “Ask your guides”.  I laughed and took that as an indication that I need to meditate. Thus I decided to drive my daughter to her practice, come home and seek the guidance.

While getting dressed and trying to eat my daughter said she has 3 questions for me.  Rushing to get her on time to her practice I told her to wait until we get into the car, to which she replied that she would forget the questions…In the car, she asked the first question and when I asked what was that second and the third, she said she forgot and proceeded to tell me that she was right in saying she would forget.  That proved to be a wonderful opportunity for me to help my 9 year old with how things work in the Universe.  I began with a quote, “If you believe you will succeed – you will, if you believe you will fail – you have.”  I asked her what it means and we had a nice conversation during which I explained how the mind-set is paramount. Three minutes into my “lecture”, I had a sudden realization that the talk was as much for me as it was for her and it was my guides answering my question. I stopped mid-stream and laughed.

My guides didn’t need for me to sit in meditation to get the answer, they spoke through me in such a gentle way I almost didn’t notice.  Once I did, they proceeded to quote me from my own poem (which they helped me write years ago) – “…if it is Love, it will Succeed…”  I had a vision of Neo stopping bullets in Matrix and reprogramming the code and had a knowing that there are bigger things at play and a new paradigm is upon us. All internal conflicts vanished and I felt inspired and at peace. Regardless of the numerological balance of the name, I have the power to make it a success because it is something I truly believe in, it was born in love, and it carries the energy of helping people!
