Dominion

“God has given us dominion over all things” ~Emmet Fox.

I no longer allow other people to control my life.

I have regained control of my thoughts, my feelings & my actions.

If someone lies to me, I can use the brains God gave me to decide whether or not I believe them.

If someone treats me poorly, I can choose exactly how I’m going to feel about it.

And once I’m thinking & feeling right, my actions will take care of themselves.

The goal for today: think Love, feel Love, give Love!

Have a great day everybody!

Believe

Why didn’t I believe in miracles… cause they weren’t happening?

Or, was it my disbelief that kept them from happening?

Is the absence of miracles proof that they don’t exist… or does that simply prove that we don’t believe?

A lack of faith never got me anywhere good, so I decided to try the opposite.

Now I have a truck load of faith & an infinitely better life than I had before.

Still not perfect, but definitely headed in the Right direction.

The goal for today: believe!

Have a great day everybody!

Not Perfect… But Trying

“Nobody’s perfect”… isn’t a good enough reason to not ‘try’ to be.

I know the things I say sometimes sound like I expect people to be perfect or that I think I’m perfect, but neither of those are accurate.

I don’t expect people to be perfect… but I do expect them to try.

I’m certainly not perfect… but I do expect myself to try.

The goal for today: don’t tell myself I can’t be perfect & don’t beat myself up when I’m not… simply try to be!

Have a great day everybody!

I Can… & So Can You!

The best way to not get anywhere in life is to keep telling myself that I’m not getting anywhere in life.

If I tell myself I can’t overcome depression… then I can’t.

If I tell myself I can’t be free of anger… then I can’t.

If I tell myself there is no hope for me… then there’s not.

It is absolutely vital that I stop saying “I can’t”… because there is no greater destroyer of progress than a negative attitude.

The goal for today: know that ‘I can’… & so can you!

Have a great day everybody!

Happy First

I used to think I’d be happy when the right people came into my life… the right girl… the right friends… the right contacts.

Yet again… I was mistaken.

Once I found peace & happiness inside of myself, then the right people came into my life.

If I’m miserable, happy people might come around *temporarily*… but if I continue my misery, they will go away in order to protect their own happiness.

The goal for today: don’t base my happiness on people… let people come into my life based on my happiness!

Have a great day everybody!

Set People Free

“Those who deny freedom to others deserve it not for themselves” ~Abraham Lincoln.

This is another Principle that applies to every facet of life.

If I don’t free you from my anger, condemnation & lies… then I can’t be free of anger, condemnation & lies.

If I Truly realize just how literal this ‘You get what you give’ stuff really is… I will stop treating people poorly, while expecting them to treat me right.

The goal for today: Patience, Tolerance, Kindliness & Love… no matter what!

Have a great day everybody!

Hard Decisions

There are no hard decisions… what’s hard is trying to keep track of my motives.

The motive that underlies my actions is what dictates whether it’s the Right thing to do or the wrong thing to do.

So if I am struggling to find my answers… it’s probably because I’m trying to manipulate an outcome.

The goal for today: practice keeping tabs on my motives all day, everyday & watch the decision making process get easier & easier!

Have a great day everybody!
