Positive Attitudes With A Baking Twist

What About Success?

What About Success?

In a conversation this morning the topic of being successful and what it takes to get there was discussed.

Our talk boiled down to the following: A Definite Mind Set on being successful, Determination, Persistence, Enthusiasm, Goal Setting, Keeping On when obstacles appear and last, but by no means least, Never Ever Give Up On The Dream!

Although the person was not one to flaunt their wealth, they had finally splurged on a new car, a Maserati.  An effect of being successful in their field of work, it was also the family car.

When we get sick and tired of being stuck where we are and what we are experiencing, or not experiencing, we  can be motivated to finally say, “Enough!” It is then, that, we can begin a new journey to new and more successful  experiences in all areas of our life.

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

Star Guy   Today’s Positive Thought is by Og Mandino.

“I will persist until I succeed.”

“The prizes of life are at the end of each journey, not near the beginning; and it is not given to me to know how many steps are necessary in order to reach my goal.”

New Chapter

Congrats Toast   This past Saturday a chapter of my life was closed, a bit overdue, and a new chapter opened with new career paths.  New Endings and New Beginnings were the order of the day.  There was a celebration that included the ending of the old and welcoming the new with friends from both past and present.  A bright and sunny future greeted me with; open arms, new friends and colleagues. 

Opportunities are on the rise and I look forward to investigating them all.

I was a bit hesitant about the closing of this last chapter in my old life and had to make a decision to be true to myself, my desires, my dreams, while setting goals along the way. 

Life is always giving us cues and clues about the changes that will bring us more joy and happiness in our life and in our relationship with ourselves, family, friends and colleagues.  It all depends on when we are ready to gird our loins and move forward into a new life experience which will bring us great fulfillment as an individual. 

One of my favorite partial quotes is by Wm. Shakespeare, “To be or not to be…”  I chose to be me.  Not always the easiest decision to make when it affects all areas of your life. 

The journey ahead is filled with excitement and newness.  This new life has been tugging at me for quite a few years and it appears the decisions made were at the right time.

I wish you continued success on your journey to being you and to all you set your mind and hands.

Today’s Positive Thought

Today’s Positive Thought is by Jay.

“What is an enlightening thought?  It is as the sun, softly glowing from the depths of our being.  It is as a gentle breeze caressing our mind, carrying us forward to an awakened state of consciousness; guiding us on our journey like a cloud skating across the blue morning sky.  It is an amazing event which illumines us.

Today’s Positive Thought

   Today’s Positive Thought is by Napoleon Hill from his book, Think & Grow Rich.

“You have learned that everything man creates or acquires begins in the form of desire, that desire is taken on the first lap of its journey, from the abstract to the concrete, into the workshop of the imagination, where plans for its transition are created and organized.”

Your Infinite Power

   Your Infinite Power to be rich, wealthy, healthy, joyous, happy, prosperous, successful and more is ready and waiting for your recognition of it to bring to you your dreams and desires, transforming them from the vapors of thought and belief, into material form. 

 You are the power and you have the talent and ability to bring forth that which is your desire for better living and more successful living.

Life is what you and I make it.  It is up to each of us to take action in our mind, with our thoughts beliefs, concepts, and determination coupled with enthusiasm, feeling, for objectification of those invisible things into our life. 

 We are only as limited as we believe ourselves to be. 

We are only as limited as we affirm we are, either aloud, in conversation, or with our self-talk. 

The time is now to eradicate limited, constricting, life draining, thought patterns and begin to design new patterns of thought, belief and conceptualization of greater good for ourselves and in our world.  Now is the time to re-energize, to re-invigorate, and re-invent ourselves and our lives for the better.

Expansion is the order of the day and the time is now to do something about it…step by step, little by little, leap by leap, bound by bound.  Action in thought and deed is a necessity if we desire to move from where we are to where we want to be in life.

No-thing is impossible.  All is available to us if we but accept it and open to it entering our lives in the here and now.  We may not see it immediately but we will see it appearing our lives in various forms and at various times.  We must have the belief it is done now and not question or wonder how or when, just a deep abiding belief it is done now.  No longer is it faith in, but the faith of.

It is up to us to make the change, to have the courage to stand up for ourselves to ourselves and begin a new and wonderful adventure and journey into greater well being, prosperity and success, into wealth and all it has to offer us and to share with the world around us. 

We are meant for greatness and are worthy of all the best life has to offer…time to claim it.

Today stake your claim to successful living and begin a new adventure into thinking, believing, conceptualizing, and enjoy the journey.

YOU ARE THE POWER!
