Until you understand your Core Story, whatever it is, and how it made you who you are today, your foundation will reflect only your unconscious beliefs about yourself, real or imagined, positive or negative. When you delve into your subconscious beliefs about your lot in life, whether you believe you deserve to be happy or sad, successful or unsuccessful, only then do you have the... Continue reading

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?' Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is...

Letting go doesn’t mean we don’t care. Letting go doesn’t mean we shut down. Letting go means we stop trying to force outcomes and make people behave. It means we give up resistance to the way things are, for the moment. It means we stop trying to do the impossible–controlling that which we cannot–and instead, focus on what is possible–which usually means taking care of... Continue reading

Something wonderful begins to happen with the simple realization that life, like an automobile, is driven from the inside out, not the other way around. As you focus more on becoming more peaceful with where you are, rather than focusing on where you would rather be, you begin to find peace right now, in the present. Then, as you move around, try new things, and... Continue reading

"You'll learn, as you get older, that rules are made to be broken. Be bold enough to live life on your terms, and never, ever apologize for it. Go against the grain, refuse to conform, take the road less traveled instead of the well-beaten path. Laugh in the face of adversity, and leap before you look. Dance as though everybody is watching. March to the... Continue reading

Each day is an adventure in discovering the meaning of life. It is each little thing that you do that day--whether it be spending time with your friends, running in a cross-country meet or just simply staring at the crashing ocean--that holds the key to discovering the meaning of life. I would rather be out enjoying these things than pondering them. We may never really... Continue reading

Today is the day that you become the person that you were always meant to be. That can’t happen if you have baggage. Leave the past. You have a chance to restart. All you have to do is LEARN from all the bad things that happened, all the mistakes you did and have the courage to move forward. — Unknown The best kind of people... Continue reading

LIVING TO-DAY--IN THE HERE AND NOW Happy the man and happy he alone He who can call to-day his own; He who's secure within can say, To-morrow do thy worst, for I have lived to-day. -DETDBX "There never was a land so dear But found its hallelujah here." If an inhabitant of some other planet were to visit America, he would probably think that our... Continue reading

Nothing will bring you down quicker than berating yourself. The mind is a superb instrument if used right, but when used incorrectly, it becomes very destructive. Be aware of your mental self-talk. We all talk silently to ourselves in our heads, but we aren’t always conscious of what we’re saying or how it’s affecting us. As Henry Ford once stated, “Whether you think you can,...

Take nothing for granted: watch water flow, the corn grow, the leaves blow, your neighbors mow. Set your own pace. When someone is pushing you, it is okay to tell them they're pushing. Remember a happy, peaceful time in your past. Rest there. Each moment has a richness that takes a lifetime to savor. Taste your food. God gave it to delight as well as... Continue reading

"I have decided to stop saying yes to people and situations that don't support my well-being. Instead, I will say yes to my happiness, and yes to my growth, and yes to all the people and things that inspire me to be authentic and whole, while at the same time accepting me just as I am. My yes, from here on out, is my pledge... Continue reading

1. Recognize that life is what you get when you're born. . . . . . Living is what you do with it! You can sit back and wait for life to happen to you or you can make it happen yourself. As Maya Angelou once said, "Life likes to be taken by the lapel and told, "I'm with you kid. Let's go!" 2. Define... Continue reading

"To some people, surrender may have negative connotations, implying defeat, giving up, failing to rise to the challenges of life, becoming lethargic, and so on. True surrender, however, is something entirely different. It does not mean to passively put up with whatever situation you find yourself in and to do nothing about it. Nor does it mean to cease making plans or initiating positive action.... Continue reading

"We don’t have to take rejection as a reflection of our self-worth. If somebody who is important (or even someone unimportant) to you rejects you or your choices, you are still real, and you are still worth every bit as much as you would be if you had not been rejected. Feel any feelings that go with rejection; talk about your thoughts; but don’t forfeit... Continue reading

You don’t have to be what other people want you to be. You don’t have to be interesting or agreeable or entertaining. You don’t have to tone yourself down, quiet your voice, or hide your feelings. You don’t have to be outgoing or spontaneous or sociable. You don’t have to be thin or beautiful or anyone’s definition of attractive. You don’t have to be anyone... Continue reading

Let me explain what we mean by compassion. Usually, our concept of compassion or love refers to the feeling of closeness we have with our friends and loved ones. Sometimes compassion also carries a sense of pity. This is wrong--any love or compassion which entails looking down on the other is not genuine compassion. To be genuine, compassion must be based on respect for the... Continue reading

The longer I love, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude, to me, is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our... Continue reading

Goethe made a rather profound statement when he said, "If I treat you as you are, you will remain as you are. If I treat you as if you were what you could be, that is what you will become." Those words of long ago express in a unique way what love is about. As I reread them for the umpteenth time, I think of... Continue reading

He was going to be all that a mortal should be tomorrow. No one should be kinder or braver than he tomorrow. A friend who was troubled and weary he knew, Who'd be glad of a lift and who needed it, too; On him he would call and see what he could do, tomorrow. Each morning he stacked up the letters he'd write, tomorrow, And... Continue reading

Contentment is a balm, satisfaction is a friendly embrace, but happiness is a warm glow and tingle that arise from the health of both mind and body. We all want to be happy, yet how many of us can with certainty declare that we are? We all have little happiness that raise us up out of the mire of our daily struggles. Perhaps we should...

Some of my sisters work in Australia. On a reservation, among the Aborigines, there was an elderly man. I can assure you that you have never seen a situation as difficult as that poor old man's. He was completely ignored by everyone. His home was disordered and dirty. I told him, "Please, let me clean your house, wash your clothes, and make your bed." He... Continue reading

Following are six behaviors that increase self-esteem, enhance your self-confidence, and spur your motivation. You may recognize some of them as things you naturally do in your interactions with other people. But if you don’t, I suggest you motivate yourself to take some of these important steps immediately.
