Today’s Positive Thought

Change2   Today’s Positive Thought is by Dr. R. C. Barker.

“Use your imagination to keep your thinking on course.  It will always go in the direction you give it.  You are the authority that determines your ways of thinking.  Be that authority.”

Rock Bottom

Rock Bottom

By: Jay The Baker

“Ouch.  Think I hit rock bottom,” said a gentleman, with a smile, I was speaking with a couple of days ago.  This was his response to the question, “How did you become successful?”  He is now a vibrant and successful individual.  He is not the only person who has hit bottom only to rise to the top.  Many years ago I wrote a column for a paper whose owner/publisher had lost everything twice before, his millions gone.  He never gave up and told me , “This time I’m keeping it.”  He did hit his one million dollar goal and continued his climb upward.

The businessman I had been speaking with shared that he had hit some really hard times which deeply affected him on emotional, mental, and physical levels, as well as financial.  “I was at the end of my rope.  Depression was beginning to hit me hard.  I no longer could stand to be cooped up and closed off from the world around me.  I knew if I didn’t get out into the world the darkness of depression would be all-consuming and it would be all over for me.  I made a decision to clean up and go out, reluctantly at first, to have a late breakfast, walk the mall, enjoy a nice lunch and get on with my life.  Returning home that evening I sat in my chair, contemplated the day, the people I met and conversations I had during the day.  That was what helped me to move past the darkness and negativity and made life more manageable for me. ”

He continued, “As the days passed I would continue to revisit those places which gave me a positive boost while improving my outlook on life and myself.  I had conversations which offered me insight, learned more about people and that my life wasn’t as bad as I thought.  Long story short, I began to meditate, set goals, investigated different areas which held an interest for me and when one popped out at me, I at once saw myself as extremely successful in this field of endeavor.  Today, I am reaping the benefits of my decision to get out and live life.  If it wasn ‘t for hitting rock bottom and moving out of the negativity I don’t know if I would still be above ground.”

As I sat listening to his story I was deeply moved by his desire to move upward and be a mentor.  As he left we shook hands and wished each other continued success.  We never did introduce ourselves but he did say he was from out-of-state.

It was a joy meeting this man and what an inspiration he is to world around him.  In the interest of brevity this story was shortened as he shared so much information with me.  I will write more about this encounter next week. 

I want to share a quote given to me years ago, “Rock Bottom is the Springboard to Success.” 

Wishing you success in all you do,

The D’s In Success

Goal 4   The D’s In Success is by T. De Luca.

There are four D’s in Success.

Dream, Desire, Decision, Determination.

The way to personal success begins as a Dream.

If the Dream begins to nudge you it becomes a Desire. 

Contemplating following the Desire leads to your making a Decision to follow this inner nudge. 

This Decision is followed by Determination which leads to goals being created, giving  you the impetus to set the direction which leads you to Success. 

Today’s Positive Thought

Choose   Today’s Positive Thought is by Dr. R. C. Barker.

“Decision is the most important function of the individual mind.  No creative process can begin until a decision is made.”

Choices

Reach For The Stars   The choices you make affect your life and experiences.

We always have a choice, even when there seems to be none.

We have the choice to act or react to a situation in words and/or deeds.

Life is filled with choices and how we choose impacts our life.

Our choices will either limit our experiences  or allow us to expand and experience more in our life.

We always have the choice to be in a static/stagnant experience or be in a vibrant, alive and enriching experience.  

So, why not opt to follow a dream, a desire, and set a goal or two for a better life?  The choice is yours. 

The life you live is your own.  All forms of success and prosperity await your recognition and acceptance.  Decide to move forward and experience better living and a more rewarding life.

You already are the success you desire to be!

For which I am truly grateful.
