“The way to solve problems is to change your thought and keep it changed.”

About Friday

   About Friday.  Each of us have had some uniqueness appear in our life this past week; we have confronted issues, problems and challenges in various forms and intensity during the week.  We have been diplomatic in handling things and very direct in others.  Life has been giving us opportunities to see “things” in a new light and with a greater understanding  of self and the world around us.  

In honor of the above accomplishments it is time to say proudly and with feeling, in the words of the Romans.

              ” I came, I saw, I conquered.”   Veni, Vidi, Vici

Congratulations,

Today’s Positive Thought

      Today’s Positive Thought is by Og Mandino from his book, The Greatest Salesman In The World.

“I have been given eyes to see and a mind to think and now I know a great secret of life for I perceive, at last that all my  problems, discouragements, and heartaches are, in truth, great opportunities in disguise.  I will no longer be fooled by the garments they wear for mine eyes are open.  I will look beyond the cloth and I will not be deceived.”

Feel Like

   Ever feel like you are in the  Sahara Desert?  All dried up and withering in the hot sun and stung by the wind blowing sand at you?  When we are feeling sorry for ourselves and all that we are going through an oasis suddenly appears in the middle of it all, giving us; hope, water, shade, date palms and most of all rest from the weariness of all that is going on in our life.

What is this oasis?  It is our inner self beckoning us to rest and partake of the offerings at this oasis to become revitalized, reinvigorated, energized to move forward with a new inner fortitude to overcome the so-called problems/challenges and be renewed in our mind.  We are reminded of our own power and abilities to live life fully, completely and most of all filled not only with a sense of well-being but a life of well-being.  This includes success in being us and prospering by our new attitude and vision of successful living from plain and ordinary to the grandeur of life and all the perks that go with it.  It is at this point we decide, enough already, get off the pity pot and get moving.

The oasis and well-spring of life is within us, it is our spirit.  It is that which knows that we know that all is possible to us. We can be, have and accomplish whatever it is we desire, no limits.  The green and coolness of the oasis bids us to stay and drink from the well-spring which gives us inspiration, focus, direction and has imbued us with the power and authority to champion our lives.

The well-spring of this beautiful oasis is forever within us and when we need to rest, regroup and refocus it is always there for us to visit and relax from the all that is going on in our lives.  As we lean against the palm tree, enjoying the sweetness of its fruit and support, a new inspiration will enrapt us and lead us forward. 

So if you feel you are in the middle of a desert, look up and nearer than you think is the oasis you are looking for.  Stop and refresh yourself.  Let this oasis breathe a fresh breath of life into you through inspiration and inner knowing while you are savoring the sweet dates and shade of the palm tree.         

You deserve the highest and best life has to offer.  Enjoy the journey on the new road of inspiration, focus and direction.

The Simple Life Part 1Of 2

   We are but simple creatures grazing on the green fields of life. Our wants are simple; our desires not out of the ordinary. Grazing in the leas is wonderful, it is serene, a calm that permeates our very being, we are happy and content creatures ambling along enjoying the simple life for all has been provided for us, there are no challenges, problems are non-existent, illness is completely unheard of and our idyllic life lasts forever, peace and harmony exists between all the creatures it is as beautiful as The Elysian Fields.  Such joy and happiness fills our hearts and minds as we meander our way from one meadow to another in a slow steady pace enjoying the view and our companions along the way.  Nice dream isn’t it?

We live in a world where wants and desires can or may vary according to the day of week, the leas are not always green and fertile, if we are content our ambition to live life may be waning, challenges and problems are present, peace and harmony between and within us may be achieved and The Elysian Fields appear in our dreams.  It seems the joy and happiness that should be in our heart dissipates with each sorrow we encounter. Life, what an experience.  So how do we go about cleaning it up and making it better?  Well, it is an individual “thing,” no one can motivate us to get up off our mental duff and go forth to prosper or anything else.  We can be inspired, self-motivated, to move forward by others, by their stories, or by realizing what we have to give to the world…us.  How odd we would think “us” is the most important thing we have to give to the world, yet, it is the most important thing we can give to the world and be a beacon of inspiration to others, and as we do, we go forth to prosper ourselves and the world around us. 

Life is truly simple and uncomplicated but we tend to mix it up and make it difficult. In fact, life is so simple that if anyone told us how simple it was we might just laugh in their face. 

As stated in Monday’s post, Afraid Of Being Different?, this is part of the change taking place in the presentation of positive constructive attitudes.  What does this mean?  It is the difference in the presentation on success.  It will include, at times, the spiritual aspect of living and succeeding in life.  There will a bit of humor, satirical as it may be, and some asides that are a bit unusual which are meant to bring a smile or a moan and an ugh, while reading an article.

Now to continue…Part 2 tomorrow.
