What If?

August 30, 2018

 

“Everything will be okay in the end. If it’s not okay, it’s not the end.”
― John Lennon
I love this quote! So many times people worry over things we have absolutely no control over. We get so caught up with the negative “what ifs”? What if everything turns out horrible? What if we lose? What if it doesn’t turn out the way I planned? I’m sure you can think of other what ifs. But what if things turn out great? What if you could view life as a glorious adventure?


This reminds me of a folk story that brings things into perspective.
There once was a farmer who lived with his wife and only son in the country. They owned one horse that helped them till the soil and plant their crops.
One day the horse just decided to run away. All the neighbors found out and said, “Oh I’m so sorry for you. Now you are going to have to work so much harder.” The farmer kept his cool and said, “we’ll see.”
After a week the horse came back with a Mare. All the neighbors said, “Oh you are so lucky, now you have two horses to help work your land.” The farmer just said, “we’ll see.”
Now, their only son wanted to tame the new horse, however he got thrown off of her and broke his leg. Again the neighbors said, “Oh you poor thing, your only son that helps with so much can’t help you work.” The farmer just said, “we’ll see.”
A war broke out in the country and all the young men had to go to battle. However the farmers son could not go because of his broken leg. The neighbors said “Oh, how lucky you are, your only son gets spared from having to go to war.” The farmer again said, “we’ll see.”
So you see, the story of life has its good times, it’s bad times. Life has its ups and downs. There are highs and lows as well. How we face those times makes all the difference. Life is like a rollercoaster. You can enjoy the thrill of the ride or feel like you just want to get off.

Joe Biden, the former Vice President has a new released book entitled, “Promise Me Dad”, a year of hope, hardship and purpose.
He exemplifies what it means to have courage and faith. You too can set your own sail and find your purpose by choosing how you respond to life’s circumstances.
Look for ways to be of service. Go the extra mile, and make it a point to lift someone else up by giving a compliment. It goes farther than you can imagine.

Here’s How to Make This Year Your Best!

December 21, 2016

believe-in-yourselfTake a leap of faith and begin this wondrous new year by believing. Believe in yourself. And believe that there is a loving Source – a Sower of Dreams – just waiting to be asked to help you make your dreams come true.

Wow, what a marvelous year it has been for me! I hope everyone was able to capture the moments of your life with joy and celebration. I have been blessed to have shared the stage with some of the best speakers in the world. Bob Proctor, Les Brown, Michael Beckwith, Jack Canfield, Mary Morrissey, just to name a few. I traveled abroad and I just returned from a trip to Alaska, yes, you heard me correct, Alaska. So many people asked me why I was heading to Alaska in the winter and my reply was why not? It was such a magical trip. Life should be a glorious adventure. If you have an opportunity to go somewhere, and do something, take it! Experience all life has to offer. Don’t get me wrong, I had some major challenges as well. I shared some trying times with friends and family members who are going through some life threatening illness and other changes that have tested their faith. I don’t think there is anyone who is not going through some sort of life change. The key is having the support and resources to navigate through them.

What is it that you want for your life for 2017? Do you want to travel to exotic lands, or perhaps you want to give your time to a charitable cause? Maybe you dream of starting your own business. Do you have health goals? Maybe this is the year you want to meet that special someone. Why not invest New Years day on thinking of the person you want to become. Write down everything you would like to manifest and see it all coming to fruition. Don’t waste another year just dreaming about it, take some action to create it!

Les Brown said, most people die at age 25 and don’t get buried until they are 65.
