Stop Making Excuses

If YOU think about it YOU don’t have to look very far to find an excuse to feel sorry for yourself…But why would YOU want to waste even a few moments of your precious life on self pity?
 
It’s easy to come up with perfectly reasonable excuses for lowering your expectations and hiding away from life…But then all YOU are left with are worthless excuses.
 
There are certain circumstances under which some people see themselves as victims….Yet under those exact same circumstances other people find and make the most of truly great opportunities.
 
When YOU expect life to be cruel and harsh, it will live up to your expectations…When, on the other hand, YOU consider yourself to be extremely fortunate, YOU will become even more so.
 
There is great value in every moment…Positive possibilities are generated by every turn and twist of fate.
 
No matter what may happen or fail to happen, life is what YOU choose to make it…Choose again and again, in every situation, to make it Great!

 

Landlord

Guess what…YOU are the Landlord of your mind and YOU alone get to decide which thoughts YOU allow to live there. So wouldn’t it make sense to fill that space with the most Positive, Productive, Empowering thoughts possible?!
 
If YOU have nagging doubts or poisonous resentments living there causing YOU problems, YOU have the power to evict them from your mind….And once they’re gone, it makes space available for thoughts of Gratitude, Confidence, and Kick-Assness.
 
Those Positive thoughts are the ones which will reliably pay the rent, month after month, year after year…And there are plenty of good, Positive thoughts from which to choose.
 
The thoughts that take up long-term residence in your mind will play a major role in determining the quality of your life…So fill your mind with the best, most Positive thoughts YOU can find.
 
Insist on only the best in your thinking, and that’s what YOU will get…Even if YOU can control nothing else in your life, YOU can indeed exercise powerful and effective control over the thoughts that occupy your mind….And by so doing, YOU will make it a great place to be.

Opportunity Just Ahead!

This Sexual Reference day will be filled with Opportunities…Each day we are above ground YOU will be given countless Opportunities to be, or do, or create whatever YOU desire!
 
Sadly, very few people ever take advantage of the Opportunities that come their way…Not because they don’t want to, but because they’re unable to. Because they are not adequately prepared.
 
We often look at highly successful people, and conclude that their success is the result of being “in the right place at the right time.” While that is true, it was not random good fortune that put them there…It was preparation that helped them to see the Opportunity in the first place, and then to make the most of that Opportunity.
 
Preparation is not usually fun or exciting…It can be tedious and unfulfilling in the short term. Yet it is absolutely essential. To enjoy Success, YOU must discipline yourself, day after day, to develop your skills, increase your knowledge, make new personal contacts, and lay the groundwork for your Success.
 
When YOU prepare yourself…YOU are always in the right place at the right time.

You Are Awesome

As YOU begin your day, remember YOU are always YOU…No matter what kind of car YOU drive or what size house YOU live in. YOU are always YOU, no matter what color your hair is, or how much YOU weigh…Inside, it is always YOU!

YOU are not your job…YOU are not the clothes YOU wear…YOU are not the body in which YOU live…YOU are more. YOU are YOU. There is no one else like YOU anywhere…YOU are unique…YOU have a special contribution to make, not in the distant future, but right now, today.

There is something YOU can do right this moment, for which YOU are absolutely the most qualified, the most appropriate, the best suited person to do it…YOU are better at being YOU than anyone else in this world…It is your responsibility, so make sure YOU never allow anyone stop YOU from being YOU.

YOU are YOU…Make the most of that and YOU will understand how very special it is.

You Are In Control

Here is a good question for YOU…Do YOU think your circumstances hold YOU back or do they reveal how much YOU have held yourself back? No circumstance….No misfortune can equal the power of Commitment and Determination.
 
When YOU choose to let some particular obstacle stop YOU, what is really stopping YOU? Is it the obstacle or is it YOU? The bad news is that YOU have been holding yourself back and there’s so much more YOU could have already accomplished. The good news is also that YOU have been holding yourself back ….And YOU can change your fortune any time YOU are ready to do so.
 
Instead of giving your energy to the problems and obstacles by letting them get YOU down, re-direct that energy toward your Dreams and Ambitions…YOU can choose to participate in your own misfortune or YOU can choose to participate in your own Success…That choice will make a world of difference in the quality of your life.
 
In each decision, in every moment, choose to wield your considerable influence in the direction that is most Positive, Productive and Creative….Choose to let your world reflect the best YOU have to give.

Don’t Worry!

Think about it, wouldn’t it be great to have a whole day without worries? Just imagine how Creative, Productive and Effective YOU could be if only YOU were not plagued with constant, annoying worries.

The fact is…YOU can have a day without worries every day. Worry is not a foregone conclusion, it is simply one of many ways in which YOU can choose to respond to your circumstances.

The thing about worry is, it exacts a heavy price but it doesn’t accomplish anything…And it is completely unnecessary.

Certainly there are things that will make you concerned…Certainly YOU must be adequately prepared for the reality of your situation. Yet there is never any use in worrying. When YOU catch yourself starting to worry…STOP! Quickly switch your energy to something else. Make plans, consider the possibilities, take action, and leave your worries behind. It will make an enormous positive difference.

Direction

Do YOU have trouble making decisions? Is it difficult to juggle your priorities? Do YOU find it hard to say  “no” , even when YOU really want to? Do YOU sometimes sit and wonder what YOU should do next?

Perhaps YOU need to clarify your sense of Direction. We all have a general idea of where we want to go, though very few people take the time to really think in specifics. But if YOU don’t know exactly where YOU want to go, YOU tend to stray off track. Distractions come along and pull YOU in a lot of different directions. Decisions become difficult to make when YOU don’t have a clear Direction.

Knowing exactly where YOU are going can focus your efforts like nothing else. Do you ever find at the end of the day that YOU haven’t accomplished very much? A clear sense of Direction can change that.

When YOU know exactly where YOU are going, exactly what YOU want to do, YOU can use that Direction to evaluate everything YOU do. Ask yourself,  “Is what I am doing right now getting me any closer to where I want to be?”  If not, then why are YOU doing it? If not, YOU better stop that and start doing something that will get YOU in the right Direction.

A ship sailing across the ocean is off course 90% of the time. But because the navigator knows the final destination, he can make all the necessary course corrections along the way, before the ship gets too far off course. Those mid-course corrections are vital. And they are impossible without a specific destination.

The same holds true for any endeavor. Everything requires adjustments and corrections along the way. But in order to make the right adjustments, the final destination must be precisely defined. Only then can YOU keep yourself on track for success.

Attention!

Can I get your Attention please…Ever notice the more Attention YOU give something, the more important it becomes to YOU. Just think about something, focus on something, give your energy to something and that energy will give it life…whatever it may be…That’s the power of Attention.
 
What YOU work toward will grow stronger…What YOU fight against will also grow stronger.
 
If YOU focus on your frustrations, YOU end up becoming even more frustrated. And if YOU then continue to dwell on those frustrations, eventually YOU reach the point where it’s nearly impossible to focus on anything else.
 
In every moment YOU have the choice of where to direct your Attention. Life may throw all sorts of things your way, and yet YOU can always decide where the power of your Attention is focused.
 
As YOU go through this day, make yourself aware of how YOU use the enormous power of Attention. Keep your Attention locked solidly on the Positive possibilities, and YOU will give them life.

The Power Of Love

Love is difficult to define yet easy to recognize. The more of it YOU give away, the more of it YOU have. The less YOU demand of love, the more it will bring to YOU. The fewer conditions YOU place on love, the more perfectly it will suit YOU, and the more meaningful it will become.
 
Love can make a powerful, positive difference whenever it is present. And love can work its magic in every corner of your life. Give love to another and YOU forge a connection that empowers YOU both. Love the world around YOU and it will become more beautiful as a result.
 
Love what YOU do and YOU become considerably more effective. Add love to knowledge and YOU will have wisdom. Love life itself and YOU will always find ways to give real meaning to every moment.

Earn It!

YOU deserve a life that’s filled with happiness and meaning, prosperity and fulfillment…Yet YOU can’t expect for others to give it to YOU.

YOU deserve the very best in life… And you deserve the priceless experience of working with commitment, determination and persistence to bring it into being.

A free ride is worth precisely what YOU pay for it. Instead of looking to get stuff for free, honor and respect the immense value of your life by finding ways to give the best YOU have.

YOU have already been given the miraculous gift of life… Now is your opportunity to find spectacular fulfillment in earning your keep.

There are great challenges and injustices that will continue to work against YOU. But there’s no real value to be gained by seeing yourself as a victim.

Instead, see yourself for what YOU truly are, a loving, caring, unique person who can make a big difference. YOU owe it to life, and especially to yourself, to make that difference, so work right now to make it in a great big, beautiful way.
