Uncertainty

No human being can predict the future. Every moment of every day is an uncertainty. People resist change and crave consistency and certainty in their lives, but that’s not possible.

Embrace the uncertainty of life. Develop the attitude where you don’t know what’s around the next corner, but you believe it’s something good! It’s all about mindset…

Trips

Life is a trip. Sometimes it’s a stroll down the yellow brick road, while other times it’s an acid trip. Either way, we are all on this trip together.

Try to find a way to encourage people you meet in this life. We don’t always know what they are going through, but we can do our best to lift them up. Perhaps it’s a genuine offer to pray for them (or with them), a smile, or maybe just making eye contact is enough.

When you give to others, you get back. And you always get more in return…

An Off Day

Yesterday, I wrote about taking a day off to recharge. Today let’s examine those days when things don’t go as planned.

Everyone has off days. Everyone. I have had them all my life, and there will be more in days to come. But not every day is an off day. It’s important to keep life in perspective, and not hold on too tightly to the dark periods.

Always remember that you have gotten through every difficult time in your life. You are still standing. And you will get through the next bad time, too, if you just keep going…

Limitless

Our minds have unlimited power. How do we tap into that power and use it for good?

The first step is we must believe in the limitless creative possibilities our brains possess. If we don’t believe, we will not get anywhere.

The next step is to stop overthinking things. Quieten your mind and let it do the work. It will, we just need to stay out of the way.

Finally, whatever we have a burning desire for, our minds will become focused like a laser beam to make it happen.

Get quiet, and allow your mind to work for you. It takes daily practice, but then it becomes part of your identity…

Envy

Answer this question honestly, are you envious of someone? If the answer is no, congratulations. You have overcome one of the things that robs us of peace and contentment. But if you said yes, let’s examine this.

The root of envy is dissatisfaction. We aren’t fulfilled in some area of life. The best news? You can change that. You have the ability to take action and do something about the area of life you are dissatisfied in. It’s up to each of us. It always has been in our power.

Turn your envy into fuel to propel yourself forward. Start now…

Escape

There used to be a television commercial for a brand of bubble bath. The slogan was, “Calgon, take me away.” The idea was that the bubble bath would take the bather away from life’s problems, if even for a short while. Ah, if only life was so simple.

People use other methods to escape: alcohol, drugs, pornography and other deviances to numb their pain. When the time away ends, the pain remains. Even plastic surgery is used to try to fix something internal, and oftentimes nothing is broken on the outside. The patient just believes there is.

Face life head on. Work on yourself to heal what hurts. No matter your method of escape, you cannot run away from who you are…

Happiness

Are you happy, really happy? Maybe you’re just slugging your way through life, acting like everything is okay when it’s not.

Everyone goes through dark periods in their lives. No one escapes them. But the difficulties of life don’t last. Strong people last.

Seek fulfillment, not happiness. Fulfillment keeps us going, even when we aren’t happy…
