Everyone has an opinion, but only a few are in possession of the actual facts. It doesn’t have to be this way because everyone has access to the facts, but most are unwilling to put the effort into finding those facts. I’m not interested in the theoretical or hypotheticals of life… I am interested only in the factual. I have no desire to hear about “your truth” or your humble opinion, I seek only The Truth… the one that comes from God & applies to every human being that ever lived. The goal for today: don’t limit yourself to lazy minded opinions… diligently seek The Truth & set yourself free! Have a great day everybody!
“A mans station is limited only by his imagination” ~from The Greatest Showman. Imagine if there was a solution to every problem. Imagine if happiness was really just a choice. Imagine if we could be whatever we wanted to be in life. Imagine if Love was all that really mattered to us. Imagine if Heaven on earth was as simple as not being selfish. Imagine if Peace could rule the world. Imagine what it might feel like to be free of anger, worry & fear. Now stop imagining it & make it a reality; & before you say “That’s a nice thought, but it will never happen”… just make sure that you aren’t the reason it doesn’t happen today. The goal for today: Imagine! Have a great day everybody!
At 28 years old, I found out first hand what it felt like to live the American Dream. I was an uneducated nobody, from nowhere, that had nothing… & I decided it was time for a change. Me & a friend decided to open our own business & take control of our own lives & destinies… & that is exactly what we did. We took a small business loan & turned it into a living example of what motivated individuals, living under true Freedom can accomplish. It was hard work, long hours & sometimes very stressful… but so incredibly worth the effort! The goal for today: know that you can accomplish anything… as long as you’re willing to work for it! Have a great day everybody!
“The noblest art is that of making others happy” ~P.T. Barnum. I agree… the greatest good we can do in this world is make others happy. I don’t write these daily messages because I want to be a writer; I write them because I want to help lead people to happiness. My happiness comes as a direct result of putting you first. I don’t wake up & think about what I can “get”’out of life today… I wake up thinking about how I can help you. The goal for today: spend as much time as possible contributing to the happiness of the people around you… & make an art out of life! Have a great day everybody!
The big book of AA suggests that we choose our own conception of God. That approach was really comforting to me since most of my life I was told “Believe what we tell you, or burn in hell.” The Problem I see in the world today is that a lot of people believe there is a God, but they have no actual conception of what that means. What is God? What does He want from me? How does He want me to think, feel & act? We seem to have gone from being force fed a conception of God, to not having a conception at all… which tends to be equally ineffective. The goal for today: take a minute to ask yourself what the word “God” means to you, because it is “your” belief that defines your life! Have a great day everybody!
Most people believe that any reason to do what’s right is a good reason. I strongly disagree! I believe that motives mean everything. Anything we do because we were conned, coerced or forced into doing it, is guaranteed to come undone eventually. Anything we achieve through selfishness & manipulation will be lost again. Anything built on a lie is doomed to failure. We may get some minor, temporary results from skewed motives… but permanent, positive results can ONLY come from Pure motives. The goal for today: do the Right things, for the Right reasons & be guaranteed the Right results! Have a great day everybody!
I woke up this morning to a pretty bad storm blowing lawn furniture & other fixtures around my yard. All of these things could have been properly & safely secured had it not been for my fear, laziness & procrastination, but they weren’t & therefore, I caused myself twice as much time, effort & money cleaning the mess up after the fact. Now, there is always a solution, so I’m not going to stress myself out about this… but it is a stark reminder that we always have the choice of preventive maintenance or damage control… & it’s nobody’s fault but our own if we choose the latter. The goal for today: prevent a few problems, rather than living in a constant state of damage control! Have a great day everybody!
