A good seaman weathers the storms he can not avoid, and avoids the storms he can not weather. Perhaps the key is to identify the difference.
I recently attended a funeral of a man who literally drank himself to death. He was an alcoholic in the depths of his addiction. It truly is a disease. It was a man I did not know well, but was there to support a friend who was involved with him. Some of his siblings spoke about him which revealed a man in his younger years was an extremely gifted and talented sailor, surfer, athlete and dancer. He went to Julliard for ballet! So what happened? When does a life start to take a turn and head into stormy waters? How can you navigate out of it? Why didn’t he get help? What was it that he was avoiding? So many questions, but no answers.
It was as if his life was battling a constant storm that he couldn’t get out of.
You might be going through some storms of your own or have gone through some turbulent times. We all go through tough times in life. With support and guidance you can get through them and even avoid some of them. You always need a good skipper on hand to help you see things you can’t as you are steering your way through life! So, if your going through a storm in your life, ask for help, pray, meditate on it and know anything is possible to get through with faith and courage.
When your in a positive state of mind, thinking and feeling good things, you will begin to attract the people that will co-create with you. Amazing opportunities will show up, circumstances will change and conditions will improve. Form a mastermind group that will assist you in developing all your gift, talents and abilities.
Call to action: Do your best to aspire to things you desire. Stay in this vibration as long as you can every day and watch what happens. Love to hear your successes. Happy Vibes!
The Holidays are here and will be gone before you know it. There are many people who go all out and decorate, cook, shop, entertain, go to many parties and do all sorts things for Christmas. Then there are those who don’t. I used to go all out during the Holiday’s but have decided to scale back tremendously!
I want to celebrate more from my heart this year then by all the trimmings. I want to feel the spirit rather than go buy things. But that’s just me. There is no right way or wrong way to enjoy Christmas. This year I am taking the time to reflect and rejoice the feeling of the season in my heart. There are so many people who are hurting and in pain. I want to send abundant love, peace and serenity to the world.
That is the gift I am giving this year. So however you decide to celebrate Christmas this year, please keep your heart open to give peace and love. This is what the world needs more than anything these days!
If you would create something, you must be something.
Johann Wolfgang Goethe
In a world that seems to be moving faster and faster into automation, how are we going to survive? AI (Artificial Intelligence) is here. More and more people’s jobs are being replaced by a machine. Which is a good thing if you can see it that way. We really aren’t designed to do medial tasks. We are creators and meant to create. The only problem is most people are in survival mode and lost their abilities to stir up their creative juices. If we feel threatened we are only concerned with surviving. Everything we do will be centered around protecting our lives and that leaves no room for creativity. Being creative is liberating. It is free expression and allowing yourself to go into the unknown with a feeling of wonder, joy and excitement. It is turning on your mind to possibilities. That is what we are here to do.
To build, or play music, dance, write, invent, discover or anything that releases your gifts. so if you’re one of the people who lost their job to AI, see if you can turn being upset into being grateful. Because there is where you will find your passion to create. It is in you!
Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known.
“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!
If you don’t design your own life plan, chances are you’ll fall into someone else’s plan. And guess what they have planned for you? Not much. Jim Rohn
I was having a conversation with a dear friend of mine the other day and we were discussing what matters most to us. We were asking each other questions that were really creating us to open ourselves up to look at what were the things that we really care about. What does it mean to live an excellent life? What is a good life? What do you value?What do you still want to accomplish? …
We are never to young or old to design our lives. If we don’t design our lives we will drift, and most likely your going to wind up shipwrecked. So why not take the time to ask yourself some questions. Life isn’t about finding yourself, it’s about creating yourself.
It’s about disrupting yourself and looking for ways to improve and master a skill, talent or gift. If you are having difficulty knowing what you want to design, then hire a coach. They can uncover parts of yourself that you can’t see.
Rising above will help you get a better and broader view of the bigger picture, and there you can begin to design from a whole new perspective. So design or drift? It is your choose. Which will you chose?
