Today’s Positive Thought

Universe   Today’s Positive Thought is by Ernest Holmes.

“If Life made you out of Itself, which It most certainly did, and if you are an individual just a little different from the other individuals who ever lived, then Life not only created you as an independent being, It also implanted a unique something within you.  It will never be duplicated.”

Today’s Positive Thought

Symbol   Today’s Positive Thought is by Ernest Holmes.

Each state of consciousness taps the same source but has a different receptivity.  Each receives what [they] ask for, according to [their] ability to embody…

Life always becomes to us the particular thing we need when we believe that It becomes to us that particular thing.

PEOPLE

By: Jay

“People,” my friend said,  “I don’t understand them.”  Continuing he said,  “Here I am having a modicum of success and all of a sudden all those who I offered to help or work with who didn’t want anything to do with me are now knocking on my door.  If I wasn’t good enough for them then, why am I now the one to know?”  This really was hard for him.  Over the years he has offered his talents for free and given his ideas freely to help others out of the goodness of his heart, with no expectation of return.  Some individuals he offered his talents and ideas to, wrote him off as, well, a “unique individual.”  Granted he is different from the average individual, but his heart is big and he did what he did out of compassion hoping that it would inspire them to move forward and if he was included in the moving forward, fine.

Now, as he is moving up the ladder of success these same people are seeking him out for his help and ideas.  So, he asked, “When I was not as successful and offered you help and ideas why did you turn me down and write me off as an oddball?  I have not heard from you in a long time.”  Ah, the judgement of others who are creatively different.  Life is funny that way.  Those who are “different” are often written off until they become successful and then, wham, everybody wants to know them.

There are a selected few he has decided to help who were sincere and honest in their response to his questions.  Others just hung their heads and gave a so-so,  mostly insincere, apology.

As he moves up the ladder of success he is mentoring others and providing them with information on moving forward to greater success in their field of work.

Each of us are uniquely different, each of us have our own unique talents and abilities that can carry forward to greater success in living life.

Next time you see a guy in a pork pie hat, plaid shirt, bow tie, and plaid pants, wearing some unique looking footwear, it may be to your advantage and his to say, “Hi.”  We are always in the right place at the right time meeting the right people, a chance meeting that can be of mutual benefit to you both.  Follow your intuition and you’ll be amazed who you meet on this journey of life.

I’m different and glad to be so.  How about you?

Today’s Positive Thought

Musical Notes 2   Today’s Positive Thought is by Henry David Thoreau.

“If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer.  Let him step to the music he hears, however measured or far away.”

Today’s Positive Thought

Rainbow   Today’s Positive Thought is by Charles R. Brown.

“We are not hen’s eggs, or bananas, or clothespins, to be counted off by the dozen.  Down to the last detail we are all different.  Everyone has his own fingerprints.  Recognize and rejoice in that endless variety.  The white light of the divine purpose streams down from heaven to be broken up by those human prisms into all the colors of the rainbow.  Take your own color in the pattern and be just that.”

Today’s PositiveThought

   Today’s Positive Thought are quotes from the book, The Greatest Salesman In The World, by, Og Mandino.

“I am nature’s greatest miracle.”

“All men are my brothers yet I am different from each.  I am a unique creature.”

“…I will capitalize on this difference for it is an asset to be promoted to the fullest…I begin now to accent my differences…”

“I am not on this earth by chance.  I am here for a purpose and that purpose is to grow into a mountain, not to shrink to a grain of sand.”

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.
