Don’t Give Up… Don’t Give In

I never give up on anybody… but it is equally as important to not give in to anybody.

There is a very fine line between helping & enabling… it’s a very delicate balance.

Everybody… absolutely everybody, is ‘capable’ of change & that’s why I will never give up on anybody.

There is no such thing as a lost cause.

At the same time… I can’t always help people the way ‘they’ want me to help them.

The goal for today: learn how to properly help people… know that change is always possible… & never give up!

Have a great day everybody!

Now I Give Help

When my life was coming apart, I needed help.

I found that help… put it into practice & turned my life around.

Now, I put my effort into offering help to others that want it & need it.

The secret to solving my problems, is to help you solve yours.

The solutions I offer you, apply to me as well… the more time I spend helping you, the less time I spend drowning in my own problems.

The goal for today: If I need a prayer or a helping hand or a moment of kindness & caring… I should give one!

Have a great day everybody!

Listen… Listen… Listen

With a few key pieces of information & the ability to listen… there is nothing that can’t be known.

I have been practicing the art of paying attention & I’ve learned a lot.

I have listened to thousands of problems & from what I’ve seen & heard… our solutions are always contained within the stories we are telling about our problems.

The goal for today: pinpoint the keys… listen carefully to myself & others… find real solutions, to real problems & experience real Peace!

Have a great day everybody!

Am I Willing?

Are you really willing to go to any lengths to solve your problems… to help others solve their problems… to earn your own Happiness, Peace & Freedom?

Most of my life, the honest answer to that question would be a resounding… “NO!”

I would let the government fix it… I would let my family & friends fix it… but I was never willing to do what was required of ‘me’ to fix my problems properly.

The goal for today: grab the reins… be responsible… earn what I get & live Free!

Have a great day everybody!

Earn Forgiveness

Most of us have done things that we are not proud of… God knows I have.

One of the biggest mistakes I made was believing that I did things that were unforgivable… but now I know better.

If I am Honestly sorry for what I’ve done & Truly willing to correct my mistake… then I will be forgiven.

So the only unforgivable sin is the one I’m not sorry for… that I continue to commit.

The goal for today: admit my mistakes, work toward correcting them & earn my forgiveness!

Have a great day everybody!

Because It’s The Right Thing To Do

Treating someone poorly won’t make them want to treat me good.

In the past, when people weren’t acting the way I wanted… I would treat them like shit, to teach them a lesson, with the hope that they would come around & treat me right.

Well, that’s just crazy!

If someone said to me that I should treat people the way that I would want to be treated, I would agree… but I certainly wasn’t living that way.

The goal for today: treat people Right… because it’s the Right thing to do!

Have a great day everybody!

Common peril… Common solution… Common journey

Imagine what life might be like if everyone openly & honestly admitted their own mistakes.

We would find that we are not so different after all.

We all make mistakes… in fact, we all make the same mistakes & that means we all have the same solution.

If we could understand this, even to a minor degree… we wouldn’t feel so alone.

The goal for today: practice humility… find our similarities… learn the common solution & see what the Brotherhood of Man really feels like!

Have a great day everybody!

Levels Of Understanding

We are all at different levels of understanding in life & that’s why it’s so important for me to learn how to communicate with people in a clear & simple manner.

Even when the topic is complex… the communication doesn’t have to be.

God is a complex thing to talk about, but if we stick to the basics, listen to one another & keep our egos in check… we can find common ground.

The goal for today: communicate clearly… understand thoroughly… & Love unconditionally!

Have a great day everybody!

A Real Leader

A real leader doesn’t tell people what to do… he teaches them what to do.

When I was trying to get my life in order, I found one of those ‘real’ leaders.

He didn’t fix my problems for me… he didn’t bark orders from his pedestal & he didn’t demand that I bow to him.

He introduced me to a better way of life, if I cared to have it.

He taught me how to help myself & encouraged me to follow my own conscience.

Then he suggested that I go out & become a leader myself.

The goal for today: be a real leader & really help people!

Have a great day everybody!

A Simple Formula

“Trust God, clean house, help others” ~Anon.

The 3 things that matter most to me are, my relationship with God, which is an active one… I don’t just call on God when I have a problem.

My willingness to see the Truth, which means knowing that if I’m disturbed… there is something wrong with me.

And my Honest desire to help others, which is the best way to keep my own life in order.

The goal for today: follow this simple formula to a Peaceful, Contented, Useful Life!

Have a great day everybody!
