Why Don’t You Stop?

I gave someone money once & then they started asking for money all the time. 

I gave & gave & gave, until I got frustrated & I began to lose my patience. 

I remember thinking… ‘Why won’t they stop asking for money?’ & then, as if it were the voice of God Himself booming from my heart, I got my answer. 

That voice said… ‘Why don’t you stop giving?’ 

If I allow someone to take advantage of me, that’s my fault… not theirs. 

The goal for today: if I do what’s Right… it won’t matter what everybody else is doing! 

Have a great day everybody!

Triggers & Temptations

There are many theories about things like triggers & temptations that cause us to do things that we shouldn’t do. 

We talk about the effect that our environment has on us & we basically claim that our lives are not under our own control. 

None of this it true! 

Triggers & temptations are wrong thoughts… & I can change them. 

Letting my past control my present is a wrong thought & I can change that too. 

The goal for today: think like a sane person… feel like a sane person & then I can act like a sane person! 

Have a great day everybody!

Forgive

“You are forgiven… that’s what a heart is for” ~Deb Talan (Forgiven). 

I thought a heart was for Love? 

Well, it is… & forgiveness is part of Love… it is an act of Love… it is a transition from anger to Love & we need to do it more. 

If I want to be happy & helpful to those around me… I must forgive. 

Drowning in anger & resentment will destroy me & spread, like a disease, to those I come in contact with. 

The goal for today: start forgiving people (all people)… because Love is the sole purpose of the beating heart! 

Have a great day everybody!

What Would You Do?

What would you do right now if you weren’t afraid? 

Fear of being alone… fear of running out of money… fear of what other people think of us. 

These fears keep us from truly experiencing Life… from knowing what it really feels like to be Free… from attaining true Happiness & Peace of Mind. 

I don’t necessarily want to throw caution to the wind… but I don’t want to be a slave to my fears either. 

The goal for today: be Happy… be Free… be at Peace… be Alive… be fearless! 

Have a great day everybody!

Our Thinking

Our thinking is far more powerful than we might imagine! 

My thinking will literally dictate whether I have a good day or a bad day… whether I’m helpful or helpless… whether I’m happy or depressed… anxious or at peace. 

It controls everything… builds everything… it is everything. 

And contrary to popular belief… we can control it! 

The goal for today: start thinking positive, right now & have a day full of Helpfulness, Happiness & Peace… so I can lay my head to rest with calmness & contentment tonight

Have a great day everybody!

Certainty

There are 4 things in this world that I am absolutely certain of!

1) Purity is always a better motive than fear. 

2) Honesty is always a better policy than dishonest. 

3) Selflessness is always a better feeling than selfishness. 

4) Love is always a better thing to give than resentment.

I certainly don’t practice this perfectly… but I am certain that it is a perfect plan. 

The goal for today: Purity, Honesty, Selflessness & Love! 

Have a great day everybody!

Surrounded By Trouble

I go out of my way to surround myself with people who are selfish, resentful, dishonest & afraid. 

Why? 

Because they are the people that need my help. 

It would be selfish of me to throw these troubled souls out of my life so ‘I’ can be at peace. 

Actually… my peace comes from helping them. 

Their trouble can’t affect me if I’m living the Right way & not allowing them to take advantage of me. 

The goal for today: help others become better people… because that’s how we make the world a better place! 

Have a great day everybody!
