Looking back allows us the opportunity to learn from past experiences and gives us new and more vital ways to proceed forward in the here and now for a future of better and brighter  life experiences.

We can’t change the past but we can learn from it to move into a better tomorrow.

Goals 2015

When I present motivational talks one of the topics concerns either muddling through life or living life with a goal oriented vision.

If we are to achieve our dreams and desires it demands that we change/alter the way we think and believe about our self, our world of experience, our self-concept and our belief in our innate talents and abilities.  We are not meant to muddle through life, it is a choice one makes to muddle through life with the, “Alas, woe is me,” attitude and belief system.  Living a fuller and richer life in all aspects is also a choice.  It is more than a “can do attitude,” it is in knowing we are worthy and capable of achieving a better life experience.  The “toys” we gather along the way are effects/results of being more successful in life.

How many people do we know who have faced severe health challenges and have overcome them and used not only a positive attitude but an inner fortitude to conquer the seeming unconquerable?  Part of their going forward is in their setting of goals, be they aware of it or not.

Procrastination in setting our goals means it will take more time to achieve our dreams and desires of a better life and living conditions.  I have firsthand knowledge of this situation, not something I recommend.  The longer we wait to put our mind to at least setting a basic blueprint of the direction we want to go, the longer we are missing opportunities that will open the doors to our success.  For instance, if I don’t listen to my intuition and write up an idea at that moment it is a lost opportunity and that idea/inspiration may or may not come again into mind.  I am sure you have had similar experiences.  Can’t tell you how many opportunities I missed due to not having a basic idea/blueprint of what I wanted to achieve, that has since changed.  How about you?

There will be more articles in January 2015 about the importance of goals and goal setting.

The Autumn Of The Year

It is the autumn of the year; our east coast has been severely hit by wind, water, snow and sand.  Many of the places I frequented as a child, teen and adult are now no more.  My relatives are doing well and making the best of things.  This can sound like our life at times…total destruction and a bleak outlook about what we see.  What we see may startle us at first and give us cause to pause with tears of despair and an, “Oh my god… ”  As the initial shock wears off we see new potential, we become invigorated, find the energy to go forward and create something new in our mind, then, in our outer life.  We may even find the resolve we’ve been looking for.  We become the phoenix and rise from the ashes with a new brightness and power to carry out our decisions.

How we view what is going on around us has a definite influence on how we see a way out of the rubble and onto better living.  Life is forever giving us clues as to how to better our living…perhaps it is an idea, or an opportunity, or a challenge, maybe we are inspired by a book, an article, or a column; whatever the clue is and wherever it came from appears in our life at the right time for the right reason, it then falls upon us to take action or not.

Moving forward means that we affirm, “I am in the right place, at the right time, and meet the right people and the right people meet me.”  Never doubt it, listen to your intuition, you never know who you will meet or what opportunity will present itself.  No-thing is impossible.  Dreams are given us to make real, from the ethereal to the material.  Desires to better our life and our world are impetuses that drive us forward utilizing our talents and abilities for the highest and best results. 

I am in the autumn of my life and am moving forward, undaunted and with more courage than I had a month ago, more energy, and more gusto, more me.  Life will always honor us at our own taking.  I am fulfilling a dream(s) and know all appears at the right time and it has.  Stop wondering how it will happen and just let it happen, I guarantee you will be surprised how “things” and “people” enter your life to better it.
