In Memory Of Joan Rivers

JR  In memory of Joan Rivers, a powerful force and pioneer in the world of comedy.

It was always a great pleasure to watch her on the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson and when she became the regular guest host and of course her show, Fashion Police.

With all the ups and downs she experienced her resilience to succeed and come back is an inspiration to all of us, both in and out of the entertainment industry.

Life is about taking chances and Joan Rivers took chances and never looked back.

I will miss your presence but know your works will endure.  The light you shared and all who you knew and mentored will radiate from your touch and live on in the hearts and memories of all of us who you influenced to move forward in living life.

Celebrating Your Life,

Jay

Being successful is more than accumulating things i.e., money, cars, houses, jewelry, and the like.  Being successful is about being you, embracing yourself, accepting yourself and allowing yourself to express life in a joyous and happy way that represents you and from that come the “things “ of success.  Doing what we love, creating what we love from the invisible thought/idea and bringing it to life in the visible world of effect is what it is all about.  So many think of success as the attainment of “things”, the attitude of, he/she with the most toys wins…ha!  There is nothing wrong with having lots of toys but the attainment of toys should not be the sole motivation for being truly successful and having a life of well-being. 

If we can think of life as a play or film that we produce, write, direct and star in it can give us a better edge on achieving our goal.  At times we write dramas, other times comedies, and of course tragedy creeps in from time to time but being the hero or heroine of this show we always come out on top in the end.  Time to write the script for success.

We write this script of success with our thoughts, attitudes, ideas, dreams and desires. As we progress there are script changes, scene changes, and lighting changes taking place within our mind.  These changes present to us a new point of focus, a new direction to follow for the next scene of our life of success.

Each and every thought that we incorporate into our life affects the outcome of any given situation.  Doubt and fear produce lack and perhaps self-sabotage.  Belief and faith in what we are doing produces success to one degree or another.  That is why it has been taught; keep a guard at the doorway of your thoughts.

Let us be careful in choosing the words we have in our script and how we set up for the next shot, how we direct ourselves and how we portray ourselves in this role of a successful, creative individual.

This is a basic simplified overview that can be used for reference as we write our script.

Continued success,

Today’s Positive Thought

   Today’s Positive Thought is by Jay.

In the movie, Jumping Jack Flash, Whoopi Goldberg has to find a code key in order to help a British agent, Jonathan Pryce.  

The key the song is written in, Jumping Jack Flash-song by The Rolling Stones, is the code key…right in front of her and in an inspirational flash she realizes it.  So it is with us, the key is us and within us.  Open the door and set yourself free to a life of abundance, success, health, wealth and prosperity.  Enjoy the discoveries.

Time To Laugh

The time to laugh is now.  At times we forget to have a really good belly laugh. 

Laughter is healing, as Norman Cousins wrote in his book, Anatomy Of An Illness.

   When was the last time you laughed at joke, at something you did or saw, or to yourself about some faux pas you or someone else made?

We all have so much going on in our life that we may be consumed and preoccupied with situations/conditions that can stress us out.  Time to step back when we feel overwhelmed by “things” and laugh.  Laughter releases stress and other good things into our mind and body.  Laughing is good for us, it lightens the load.  Why not watch a comedy that makes you laugh, we all have our favorites, be it a movie or television series.  One favorite a friend has are reruns of Laugh In from decades ago with Rowan and Martin.  When I really need a laugh I pop in a favorite comedy movie or read George Carlin.      

A friend of ours is a stand up comedienne and has performed all over the country.  It is such a pleasure to be with her as she always has a joke to tell, points out some absurdity going on or comments on the ridiculousness going on in the world.  The smile on her face and her ability to make us smile and laugh is priceless.  A visit to her neck of the woods is something we look forward to and enjoy to the max.  I’m sure you have someone who brightens you up when you get together with their smile and joking around, etc.    

Taking care of yourself and being successful go hand in hand.  Laugh and enjoy the day as it will have a very positive and direct impact on your outlook, your dealings with others and your life.

“I will laugh at the world…And so long as I can laugh never will I be poor…Only with laughter and happiness can I truly become a success.  Only with laughter and happiness can I enjoy the fruits of my labor…To enjoy success I must have happiness and laughter…” Og Mandino   

Laughing is good medicine for the mind and the body.  Trust me.
