Life is a prayer. I love this statement; When life is rough pray, when life is great, pray. I have come into the habit of praying every day. Actually, I practice prayer without ceasing. Which means, I am conscious of my thoughts, which are my prayers. Every morning, I wake up and ask God how may I be of service to my highest good. Every evening, I do the same. I feel and have come to know that prayer is not just in times of trouble, but also when times are good. It is raising our consciousness with a deep feeling of gratitude that will connect us to God, and this is where are prayers are answered. Pray every day, even when times are good. Pray is a state of mind.
Develop the habit of prayer in your life. Be vigilant of your thoughts and what you are thinking. Your spiritual life will soon be richer, which will manifest into your physical world. So always remember, when life is rough pray, when life is great, pray too!

Initiative is the pass-key that opens the door to opportunity. In Napoleon Hills book The Law of Success,there is a chapter devoted to this quality that must be understood and applied, if you desire success in your life. To chose a definite chief aim or purpose is the first step. Then to have this purpose materialize, you must do something every day to get closer to your desired outcome. You must take initiative.
I recently published a book, entitled How May I Serve. I use a pen name “Karen Mathews”, because it is a memoir of my life so far. I have wanted to write this book for some time. I took initiative every day to complete my book, and now it is published and available for sale. The goal of my book is to empower women who struggle with limiting beliefs about themselves and what they can accomplish in life. With initiative, I would never have completed this goal.
So today, ask yourself, what can I do to Serve others? What do I have to offer? Than create a plan, and do something every day to get closer to it. You will then have taken initiative, which will make you a leader and give you self confidence to keep moving forward in a positive direction. How may you serve?

How may I serve? How may I be of service to the world? It doesn’t require any heroic action to be of service. You can serve the flowers and trees right in your own garden, or neighborhood. Bless all the people you meet. Give a kind word or thank everyone you come in contact with today. Give of yourself in your work, in your home, in your community and in your world. Being of service is an expression of gratitude for life. So step outside your comfort zone, and be of service.
“Everybody can be great, because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.”—Martin Luther King, Jr.
“Only a life lived in service of others is worth living.”—Albert Einstein.

Being of service, is the highest form of happiness. If you are feeling down, depressed or unhappy, be of service. Give of yourself like never before. Think of how you can light up someone’s life by giving back. Don’t ever think of what’s in it for you, but how you can help some one else feel good.
I know of no other way to feel my best as when I am offering a service of good will to someone. This creates pure joy in my heart and I know it will do the same for you. Find a way to be of service. Whether it is a smile, a complement, or something tangible give with an open heart. The rewards are ten fold. So the next time you are feeling down about your life, be of service to someone else and see how quickly you will feel happiness in return. Let’s learn to be go givers rather than go getters.
