It’s funny that my excitement caused me to pull my daughter into my office to share with her this wonderful music video, to which she said she’d already seen it. Her comment is believable because literally thousands of people have, but I because it was new to me, I thought it must be new to everyone. Wrong.
This is one of those types of videos that really captures your attention and leaves you willing to watch again even though you’ve seen it 4 times already. And keep in mind, if this woman can create such wonderful music, what music is in you that you can create?
Every day is a new day. We are so blessed, especially as Americans because we have the freedom to do nearly whatever we want whenever we want to. The possibilities of making good things happen for us, our families, and for others is limitless.
So how do you approach your new day? Do you jump out of bed, beat your chest and shout “I’m so happy and grateful to be alive!”? Or is your life a little different than that? I can’t say my life is like that, but I’d like to try. Read the rest of this entry »
Are we following the single most important thing concept?
I’ve been enjoying employing a lot of self-improvement by self-learning it over the years and one of the things I heard written one way or another has to do with productivity and results. That’s to ask yourself the question, “What is the single most important thing I can do right now that will help move me closer to my goal?”
Interestingly when I was in school as a child, nobody ever talked to me about such a question or concept. Doesn’t seem like something that should be held back from discussing within an educational establishment because doing so means that nobody got that valuable concept implanted in their brain.
Get better in order to become the new blue shiny diamond that represents your new you
I was talking to my Dad the other day and he said he’s done stupid things before. I told him I had too and that everyone does from time to time. So it happens and all we can do from a “getting better” perspective is to get better and learn from the experience. As long as we do that we are getting better.
Keep in mind doing the right thing and the thing that makes us grow isn’t usually the easiest thing to do. But with practice it will become easier because Read the rest of this entry »
Additional real life stories to bring home the teachings of vibrations of which we all have, project, and receive. The question is do we tune into the frequencies of others? And the answer can be quite complex, but generally speaking we do in cases having to do with people we love.
I had a rather odd thing happen the other night, but turned it into an opportunity to give, which is good. My family decided to go out to dinner to a very nice buffet (sounds like an oxymoron) because truth be known, most buffets aren’t that great. Anyway, image there is one that is very good and I can say that because we ate there at $30 per meal and the line to wait to be seated was about an hour long.
We invited one of our children’s friends to join us and strategized how to beat or minimize the 1 hour wait by having a few people of which one was me arrive fifteen minutes before they open and do the waiting for everyone else. So we finally made it to the cashier and it wasn’t really welcomed that all of our party wasn’t there and I wanted to pay for them so they could join us upon arrival, but we got it worked out by the grace of G-d anyway.
There is beauty within us all, especially when we work towards something special to us
Everyday folks, that’s how often I work on my dream. When you hit your passion and you’re excited about where you’re going and what you’re creating, it doesn’t make any sense but to work every day on it. If fact, you would never even think about not working it every day. It drives you and you drive it. Total energy from where you never knew you had it. Keep your dream alive.
You see, what I’ve done is created a habit of working on my dream that’s an everyday occurrence, just like brushing my teeth, and the great thing is you can do that too. Create a life (change for the better) habit in just 30 days. It’s been determined that the previously thought 21 days isn’t long enough based on testing done by NASA. Read the rest of this entry »
If there’s one thing that tends to help many people including myself in shifting negative feelings over to the positive, music can often help a lot. When I saw the tacky video by Weird Al Yankovic (of which I’ve been a fan of for years), I wasn’t feeling bad or down, but it still lifted my spirits and created a good laugh or two.
Hopefully you already know how important happiness plays in our lives. It’s instrumental in leading a healthy life and it can be difficult to work with or communicate to others (or yourself) when they are unhappy. So if you’re happy most of the day, then what you’re doing is working and I suggest you keep doing it. If not however, take some time daily to work on finding ways to reverse the path of unhappiness that you experience so you can begin to enjoy your life more fully.
Enjoy Al’s video, be happy, and I’ll talk to you again soon,
We’ve got a challenge, but we’ve got to get on with it!
So what’s the challenge? The challenge is what it is you’re trying to accomplish. To be more specific, it’s your goal, your dreams. I make this distinction because it is so important and to take it one step further, it’s your big audacious dream and goal. If it weren’t, then there wouldn’t be much of a journey. In fact, we might call it a stroll.
Journey implies that you’re going somewhere that is beyond the end of your block. It gives you a long enough destination to be able to run, walk, stop, slow down, speed up, start again and so on. My point is don’t turn your journey into a race. Make it a challenge instead, that you’re committed to accomplishing regardless how long and how hard it takes to achieve.
I just finished reading chapter 4 from the book “Dance Until It Rains” and I was introduced to a man named William Mitchell of which I had not heard of before. I’m not going to explain his story because it’s done well enough in the book and at the following video. I do recommend you check it out. What a tremendous story that will give you hope and inspiration. Enjoy.
