"If opportunity doesn't knock, build a door" - Milton Berle

Are you missing opportunities in your life?

Do you wish you could get the next great opportunity in your life?

Have you ever looked at another person and thought "wow they are lucky"?

Do you realize "luck" most of the time has nothing to do with it?

Its about you and how you are.  To create opportunities in your life you need to work on you.  Don't envy the other person, emulate them.  Watch what they do, see how they are.  Most of the time it has to do ...

A little Kindness goes a long way

Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible.

~Tenzin Gyatso, 14th Dalai Lama

The world needs more kindness. 

We need to care for and care about one other, regardless of our similarities - or our differences. While you are unique, your neighbor is, too. And so is that woman sitting alone in the coffee shop, reading. Or that older man sitting on the bench, under the tree, feeding the birds.

Everyone faces their own journey, complete with highs and lows, triumphs and struggles. Some you those can see, while other challenges are internal. With that in mind, give people a little extra time or ...

Save money, live on less than you make

What if I told you that your salary is now ONE MILLION dollars?

What would you do?  Would you save it or spend it?

Would you make changes to your lifestyle?

Would you go out and buy and new car, house, clothes, gadgets for around the house?

Most people would spend. Unfortunately, that's the norm in this status-obsessed, consumer culture in which we live. If you're like most people, the television you watch has an impact on your unconscious. You want to have the things and lifestyle of the stars on the shows: the biggest house, the most expensive car, the trendiest clothes. Some ...

Beautiful life

In your quest to achieve your dreams, is a realization that  life is short.

With this knowledge you need to do everything you want and can during your life.

Don't let fear hold you back.

Life can be beautiful if you just free yourself and say yes to the opportunities it presents you.

Of course there are constraints such as money, health, age and so on.

Whatever adversity may come your way just remember it is a short life and we all have to make the best of what little time we have here on earth.

 

Go out and ...

Free yourself from your own set of rules.  

All of us have established rules in our minds of how we and others should be and act.

Try and free yourself from these internal standards.

See how you feel, does it make you a more open minded person?

Sometimes we gauge the world around us by what we think or believe to be right.

Try a new perspective.

Feel how freeing it can be.

Share your thoughts with us after you try this for a day.  See if it has helped put some motivation and self-awareness back into your life.

“Love yourself, even a little bit each day, and your life will bloom into infinite joy.” 

by Amy Leigh Mercree

I enjoy this quote, and believe in the thought.  The only way to true motivation in your life is to love yourself.  The world can be a tough place, you may find yourself feeling beat up by everyday events.  When you do please remember this quote.  Its easy to love others, but sometimes harder to love ourselves.  We need to make time to take care of our own needs in life.  We need our own moments of peace and inspiration.

PROCRASTINATION & THE ART OF MAINTENANCE

PROCRASTINATION & THE ART OF MAINTENANCE

It’s hard to admit, but …

I’m a procrastinator.

Always have been.

Avoidance? Of bad news, of tasks that are a pain in the neck. But putting things off has a snowball effect. I know this, yet I continue to do it. Why? What’s the payoff? Because I guarantee you, there is definitely a payoff.

Maybe it’s peace of mind? But there’s that annoying little gnome gnawing at the edges of my mind on a daily basis. Maybe list making helps. Maybe it makes it worse, because I actually have to take the time ...

SOLSTICE: BE STILL

Winter begins this year on Sunday, December 21, at 6:03 pm Eastern time.

It’s a moment of magic.

Even in the midst of the unnecessary consumer whirlwind and in the merriment of revelry with family and friends, it’s the quiet time. There’s an underlying sense of slow as the Earth prepares for slumber, lullabies of snowfall and bells sung in a quiet chorus of melodies ancient and modern.

There’s something about this month that is unique. At every turn, there’s a sense of anticipation and excitement. It’s a time when storytelling is exalted, when the enchantment of the season is ...

WEALTHY & WISE

“The wealth of a soul is measured by how much it can feel... its poverty by how little.” ― Sherrilyn Kenyon, Invincible

 

Are you wealthy?

 

If you answered NO, don’t feel bad. You’re not alone. Most people answer NO. Always thinking in monetary terms does that to humans. We’re conditioned by friends, school, television, and other sources that “wealth” is measured in dollars: the more dollars you possess, the wealthier you are.

 

Do you think that’s accurate?

 

Sure, money is a necessity. For a decent place to live, clothes on your back, food to eat, as well ...
