Do You Want to Know a Secret?

May 10, 2018

“Nature yields her most profound secrets to the person who is determined to uncover them.”         Napoleon Hill

I love older classic movies from the 1940-1950’s. I find the acting and stories so compelling. There were no special effects to entertain you, so the dialog had to be intriguing, intelligent and emotionally gripping. There was’t even any color to enhance the scenes so using shadows and playing with angles left much to your imagination.

One movie I watch last week was Bird Man of Alcatraz, a true story based on the life of  Robert Franklin Stroud. He was incarcerated for 54 years of his life with 43 of those years in solitary confinement. In that time he became a respected ornithologist (bird expert) and  educated himself in many subjects.

It made me think of what we are capable of when we join forces with this universal intelligence. We don’t have to go to solitary confinement to uncover our  talents and gifts, but we do need to sacrifice something of a lower nature for a higher one.

When we go into the solitude of our minds, nature will begin to reveal her secrets to you too!

Are you ready for a revaluation?

Yeah I Failed

June 1, 2017

I have failed at so many things that you would think I would be stuck, sad and resentful! However, I am just the opposite. I look at the bigger picture. I look at it as failing forward. I keep moving forward until I reach a breakthrough.

You see, if your not failing, you’re probably not really moving forward.  You must use adversity to improve yourself and climb higher. If your mind is fixed and inflexible you won’t even try, but if your open to growing, you will try something even if it doesn’t work out.

Sara Blakely became the youngest self made billionaire by her drive and determination to fail forward. She was encouraged as a young girl to try new things, and if she failed

( which was often) was congratulated for putting in the effort. If we can learn by her example we would all develop the growth mindset instead of the fixed one.

You only fail when you give up, so keep going!
