Hope

“You can speak to them about hopelessness because you offer a solution” ~Anon. Someone once told me I was powerless. Powerless over drugs & alcohol… powerless over people, places & things… powerless over life in general & he was right… but what he failed to mention was that there is a solution. The idea of being powerless over the world & all the people in it didn’t sound very appealing to me, so I went out in search of a solution… & I found it! I’m here to tell you that no matter how hopeless your life might seem right now, there is a solution… it can ALL be fixed! The goal for today: never give up & never give in… seek, find & follow the solution! Have a great day everybody!

Acceptance?

Someone once said to me “acceptance is the answer to all our problems”… & I remember thinking “well that sucks!” If someone is mistreating me should I just accept it? If I’m in a shitty dead end job should I just accept it? If my life is unsatisfactory should I just accept it? Then I read this… “It is blasphemy to accept anything less than harmony & happiness” ~Emmet Fox. I’m going with door #2… if something isn’t going right in my life, I’m not going to simply accept it… I’m going to change it. There are some things we can’t change, but even those things can be brought into harmony by changing the way we interact with them. The goal for today: don’t accept inharmony… correct it! Have a great day everybody!

The Same

None of us really have a different problem, or a different solution… we just have different symptoms & symptoms are irrelevant. Fear is the root cause of all negatives… we just keep renaming it & we have confused ourselves as a result. Whatever problem you think you have… it’s really fear. Love is the root cause of all positives… but most of us don’t know what that means, so we are equally confused about the solution. The absolute only way to properly fix anything is with the unselfish concern for the welfare of others (Love). The goal for today: stop being afraid of what you’re not getting & start giving Love instead… problem solved! Have a great day everybody!

Succeed At Life

“The most important single ingredient in the formula of success is knowing how to get along with people” ~Theodore Roosevelt.

The best method I have found is this:

1) Treat people right because it’s the right thing to do… not because you’re afraid.

2) Be honest with yourself & others, but make sure it’s “The Truth”… not just your truth.

3) Give freely, but wisely of yourself… not crossing the line into enabling.

4) And above all, Love people unconditionally… not just when they do what you want.

The goal for today: learn how to peacefully co-exist with people & succeed at life!

Have a great day everybody!

Profound Simplicity

“If you can’t explain something simply, it’s because you don’t understand it” ~Albert Einstein. At times I thought I was stupid because I couldn’t understand people’s fancy words & complex explanations of life. Other times I would use big fancy words & then feel superior when you didn’t understand me. But now that I’ve gained some true knowledge & my motive is purely to help you, I no longer feel stupid or superior. If I’m using a .25c word instead of a .05c word, it’s probably because I’m trying to impress you, rather than help you. The goal for today: know that life is profoundly simple… Unselfishness = Happiness! Have a great day everybody!

Who Should I Ask?

I came to a point in my life where I really needed to know the Truth… I could no longer run the risk of basing my life on people’s humble opinions. Things like resentment are incredibly destructive… & when I ask people how they think I should react to certain situations, they almost always encourage me to be resentful. For example: if your significant other cheats on you… should you be angry? Take a poll on Facebook & the resounding answer would be “YES!” But if you asked God if you should be angry… He would most certainly say “NO!” The goal for today: if I want to know the Truth… I should probably look within! Have a great day everybody!

They’re Not Qualified

The government can’t divide us unless we let them. The doctors can’t turn us into drug addicts unless we let them. The church can’t convince us we are sinners unless we let them. Our environment can’t control our actions unless we let it. If we want to be happy, healthy & free, it’s time to man up… take control of, and responsibility for, our own thoughts, feelings & actions… & stop allowing these people to run our lives into the ground. If my life sucks it’s because I have handed control of it over to people that simply are not qualified to handle it. The goal for today: gain enough self-esteem to know that we are more qualified to run our lives than they are! Have a great day everybody!
