Most of us spend our days going through life trying to figure out how we can get things. I'm no exception--I focus on things like how I can earn more money, what new music I'd like to hear, whether I can afford something right now, how to get someone to do something I want (or think I need) them to do. There are others, though,... Continue reading

The issue you face, when you don’t realize all of the wonderful gifts you have, is that it can be incredibly overwhelming! When you focus far too much on your problems, perceived shortcomings or other obstacles you get yourself STUCK.

We say "peace of mind," but actually peace is never in the mind. When we want peace, we have to go beyond the realm of the mind. If you think that you are twenty years old or forty years old, then you will have to struggle with your mind to even have a glimpse of peace. But if you can feel that you are just... Continue reading

Countless millions worldwide have benefited from Napoleon Hill's work. Now it is your turn. 1. Definiteness of Purpose. The starting point of all achievement, Definiteness of Purpose--knowing what your goal is, knowing what you want--fills you with a success-consciousness and protects you against failure. Exercise: Decide on a major goal in your live--either personal or professional. How much time will you give yourself to achieve... Continue reading

''A good relationship happens when two people accept each other’s past, support each other’s present, and encourage each other’s future, without trying to micromanage any of part it. So don’t rush relationships, especially those that feel overbearing. Find a partner, and friends for that matter, who encourage you to grow, who won’t cling to you, who will let you go out into the world, and... Continue reading

Whenever you go out of doors, draw the chin in, carry the crown of the head high, and fill the lungs to the utmost; drink in the sunshine; greet your friends with a smile, and put soul into every hand-clasp. Do not fear being misunderstood; and never waste a minute thinking about your enemies. Try to fix firmly in your mind what you would like... Continue reading

You are strong. . . when you take your grief and teach it to smile. You are brave. . . when you overcome your fear and help others to do the same. You are happy. . . when you see a flower and are thankful for the blessing. You are loving. . . when your own pain does not blind you to the pain of... Continue reading

Grudges take up brain capacity and prevent us from performing at our very best. What we focus our minds upon grows; this is true of hatred too. Therefore, it is impossible to truly achieve great things for ourselves when we have a lot of our energetic capacity tied up in negativity. Remember that forgiveness is primarily for YOU. It free up your energy tremendously. So... Continue reading

There comes a time in your life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad, and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right, pray for the ones who don't. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is a part of... Continue reading

The Essense, The Nittus Grittus If you are unhappy, be unhappy. Do not judge yourself for being that way. It is wonderful to be unhappy, it is God expressing emotion. Love your unhappiness. It means you are ready for change. You are ready to go forward, yet you mourn for the old; you are not ready to let go. Allow the unhappiness, there is purposefulness... Continue reading

Dance Like Nobody Is Watching We convince ourselves that life will be better after we get married, have a baby, then another. Then we are frustrated that the kids aren't old enough and we'll be more content when they are. After that we're frustrated that we have teenagers to deal with. We will certainly be happy when they are out of that stage. We tell... Continue reading

Relationships - of all kinds - are like sand held in your hand. Held loosely with an open hand, the sand remains where it is. The minute you close your hand and squeeze tightly to hold on, the sand trickles through your fingers. You may hold on to some of it, but most will be spilled. A relationship is like that. Held loosely, with respect... Continue reading

Nothing in life causes more pain and suffering than the judgments we hold about and against others and ourselves. I think Byron Katie says it best: “When you argue against reality, you will suffer.” Judgments are the thoughts or arguments we hold about or against what is, what was, and what should be. All judgments create suffering and need to be forgiven. Releasing Judgement Every... Continue reading

What you seek is not somewhere else at some other time; what you seek is here and now, within you. The more you look for it outside yourself, the more it hides from you. You can’t have a better today if you’re still worrying about yesterday’s memories. Focus on the present, you have nothing to do with who you were in the past, you are... Continue reading

Positive change will happen in your life when you decide to take control of what you do have power over, instead of craving control over the uncontrollable. No matter what happens, YOU control what the meaning is, and what to do with the meaning you give to the circumstances around you. If you are sad about what's going on in your life right now, pause... Continue reading

I often look at my life as segments, as chapters in the story that I'm living out day after day. There are many times in my life when it seems pretty obvious that one chapter is ending, while another is beginning. Sometimes it's the result of something rather dramatic, such as a job change or a move to another place; other times, the changes are... Continue reading

Life is not about control or making things happen in the ways we think they should happen. In fact, it's rather arrogant for us to be on this planet that's been here for so long and expect to be able to control life on it. If we want to see changes, then our task is to set things in motion, not to micromanage and make... Continue reading

How to Quit Life and Start Living Jim M. Allen Do you ever feel like life is spinning out of control? That the harder you try to get ahead the more you just barely get by? If so, maybe it's time for you to think about quitting life -- that elusive thing that we chase after and strive for -- and, instead, start living. It... Continue reading

Relationships don’t create happiness, they reflect it. Relationships are simply the mirrors of your happiness; they reflect it and help you celebrate it. Most people enter into relationships with an eye toward what they can get out of them, rather than what they can put into them. Nobody will fix your life or make you feel special if you are not able to give that... Continue reading

What Is Forgiveness? Forgiveness means choosing to release resentment, anger, bitterness, hatred, and the desire to punish or avenge past offenses or wrongdoings. We can choose to forgive even when the offender does not deserve it. Why do we do this? We forgive in order to dissolve our attachments to the past. Although an offense in our life may be long past, we often continue... Continue reading
