Today’s Positive Thought

Lotus Blooming   Today’s Positive Thought is by Albert Einstein.

“The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious.  It is the source of all true art and all science.”

Baubles And Beads

   Bells, whistles, feather boas, colorful baubles and beads, sequins, sparkles and all out gaudy make for a very colorful and unique day.  How colorful is your day?

We tend to get into a rut with everyday living and working.  Wouldn’t you like to jazz it up a bit?  I realize hanging a fuchsia feather boa on your chair or around your neck and Mardi Gras beads off the corners of the cubicle or picture are not the norm or even allowed in many workplaces, hence we are relegated to jazzing up our mind with the color and energy of positive and creative thoughts.

As we jazz it up, up there, it provides us with a wonderful feeling, permeates all we do and who we are–time to; end the drabbiness (my word), add color, energy, and sparkle to our being.  As we sparkle things up, up there, we glow, we effervesce and are open to new perspectives on life, answers to questions and problems appear with creative ways and resolutions.

Life is about being, being us, without creating too much of a stir, ahem, don’t want to scare people.  Coming from an artistic family (music, art, design) I like the classics and the different that has a style and co-ordination to the scheme/theme of the work.  Sometimes even the extremely outrageous finds a place in my “like” arena of life.  The point is, we are each unique individualized expressions of Life Itself.  Each of us is creative in our own ways.   In being successful it is important to be true to ourselves and not sacrifice ourselves just to succeed and be miserable.  Miserable is not part of successful living.

If we want true success and well-being in our life it is important for us to live our life and too, add color and dimension to our being.  Time to go from 1D to 3 D.

The gaudy bling dresses up the outside for “looks” but the real glitter and sparkle of life takes place within each of us.  Add a touch of color and sparkle to your day today.  Dare to be colorful you–without creating too much of a stir and should people look at you askance–smile and nod and let them wonder why it is you are so excitingly you.

Savor The Success Of Belief In Self

   Time to savor the success of belief in self.  Believing in ourselves is instrumental in moving forward into a life of success. 

The action of success is first in our mind as an idea/thought which sparks our imagination into full gear and gives our subconscious the order to produce the desired effect.  The action of success also necessitates that we formulate a plan, set goals and above all, being willing to take a chance on ourselves and our ideas, and as some say, step out on faith on our ability to be a success. 

Believing in ourselves and our ideas are keystones to advancing up the ladder of success and well-being.

If we don’t take action on our ideas someone else will benefit.  Some have shared with me their stories of not taking action on their ideas and a year or so later someone else, who had the same idea, made a fortune.  If we don’t believe in ourselves, our ideas, our talents, our abilities, success will elude us.  The power, the energy, the creativity of Life cannot aid us on our journey if we forego believing in ourselves and our ideas.

If we long for success cultivating self-acceptance, self-confidence, and self-worth are vital.  If we have no belief in self or our idea no one else will.  The only barriers to our success exist in our minds as thoughts, beliefs, concepts concerning ourselves (self-image) and our ability to achieve a better life.   

Look at the adversities athletes have overcome and their persistence to be in the Olympic Games, i.e. the USA female weightlifter, Sarah Robles, USA female runner Lolo Jones, and Oscar Pistorius the runner from the Republic of South Africa.  There are many in this world who have overcome great obstacles and are successful.  How about those in the filed of acting, art, writing and the like who never gave up and now excel at their craft, for instance Michael J. Fox.  There are well known actors/entertainers who have slept in their car, i.e. Chelsea Handler.  In the field of writing, Stephen King had humble beginnings.  But most of all, look at your neighbor, a friend, a relative who wouldn’t let “that something” stop them from living life to the fullest of their abilities and go for success.  Take a look at yourself and appreciate all your accomplishments and whatever “things” you had to overcome in your life.

Time, dedication and persistence pays off in the long run.

How dedicated are we to the pursuit of our dreams and goals? 

Never ever discount yourself, your talents, or your abilities!  You are already successful so continue onto greater success in living your life.  You are more than capable to achieve your dreams, goals and desires.  You are a powerhouse of success.

Within You Is The Greatness To Be!

I Am What I Am

“I am what I am.”  If I remember correctly from my childhood, Popeye The Sailorman used this line, albeit stated a bit differently, and it is used in a song from La Cage.  How exciting to be what we be, I mean are.  

We are amazing!  We have the ability to bring forth new and more enriching experiences in our personal and professional life.  How often we have read that we can bring forth the experiences we desire.  It is all in our mind’s eye…it is what we see and promote for ourselves within our thoughts that shapes our life.

What do we see for ourselves?  What is our self-perception?  The nice part of what see for ourselves and self-perception is, it is a picture always under construction.  Some days we paint with dark muted colors and other days we paint the canvas of our life with vibrant colors and pastels.  If we are having a dark color day nothing says we have to stay where we are and suffer the slings and arrows of our own making. Yes, we can stop and take in the dark moment to understand it and move out of it, but; no lingering there, no giving up, no listlessness, or allowing ourselves to stagnate in this pond of goo which drains the very life and creativity out of us.  Time to jostle ourselves and know we have the power to decide, the power of decision to say firmly and with authority , “I can change this.”  “I am what I am and what I am is amazing.” “I am is the key to me and takes me to new and bright beginnings.”  I NOW PAINT MY LIFE ON A FRESH NEW CANVAS WITH COLORFUL AND EXCITING EXPERIENCES OF ABUNDANCE, WEALTH, HEALTH, PROSPERITY, WELL-BEING, SUCCESS AND ALL THAT I KNOW I AM DESERVING OF.” 

There is a creative power within and around us waiting for us to present it with the images of a better life so it may act upon and create the desired effects from the definite causes/thoughts presented to it.  

You are an artist.  In you is an eternal beauty and creativity.  Now is time to pick up the new canvas and paints to let the  inner artist of life express itself.  Let your inner beauty out and say, “I am what I am and what I am is amazing and prosperous.”  

Yes you are!

Yes, we did purchase the “I Am What I Am” t-shirts when we recently saw the show.

Believe In Yourself

   Believe in yourself is the motto for those who are involved in living a successful and productive life. You are the creative artistic director of your life. 

We all have read and heard of the importance about believing in ourselves from a variety of authors and speakers.    

How about taking a moment to create a few affirmations such as:

“I believe in myself and all that I am.”

“I believe in myself and my desires to succeed and express a positive, prosperous and productive life.”

“I believe in myself and in my work.”

“I believe in myself and know I am now successful.”

“I believe that the path before me has been made clear for my success.”

“I am now a successful, creative, prosperous, wealthy, and healthy expression of life.” 

“I BELIEVE IN ME.”

I believe you are now all that you have just claimed for yourself.

Your success is here and your success is now.

I am now drawn to the right people, places and things at the right time for my continued success, for which I am grateful.

Continued Success,

Jay

“Ideals are like stars.  You will never succeed in touching them with your hands; but, like the seafaring man, you choose them as your guides, and, following them, you will reach your destiny.”
