Every problem has exactly ONE definite, permanent, guaranteed solution. There are a million ways to patch a problem up on the surface, but there is only one way to fix a problem properly. If my car runs out of gas, I can push it, tow it, or coast it… but it’s still out of gas. Life works the same way. Once I realized that selfishness was the root cause of my unhappiness… I was excited! Why? Because then I knew for certain that the ONE & ONLY possible solution to my problem was unselfishness… there is no other! The goal for today: find the cause, do the opposite, problem solved… guaranteed! Have a great day everybody!
“You’ve got to find some way of saying it, without saying it” ~Duke Ellington. I love this quote! I write like that… everything I say can be applied to an individual’s life… the life of our nation… & humanity as a whole. For example: I shouldn’t spend more money than I have… neither should the White House… or the G20. The Principles that govern all life on earth are at the root of the things I write. The goal for today: share the tools, that fix ALL of our problems, with individuals in an attempt to change the world from ‘We the People’… up! Have a great day everybody!
There is a guaranteed method of avoiding problems. If I ask myself “If there is a God, would He want me to think, feel, or act, the way I’m about to?”… & then live up to the answer I get from Him… I’m guaranteed to not have a problem. For example: If there is a God, would He want me to love people… or hate them? We all know the right answer & now we can make an educated decision… hate & feel bad… or love & feel good. The goal for today: avoid problems by making ourselves consciously aware of what’s Right… & proactively doing it! Have a great day everybody!
Bill Wilson, a co-founder of AA, tried to help a lot of people get sober & it didn’t work. One day, when he was just about to throw in the towel, he said to his wife “I give up! This isn’t working… none of these guys are staying sober”… his wife replied “But you are Bill.” Here we are… 83 years later & that statement by Lois Wilson is still saving lives. The person receiving help may or may not get & stay well… but the person giving help will ALWAYS triumph, over any & all difficulties. The goal for today: don’t forget this Master Law of Life… giving is far more powerful than getting! Have a great day everybody!
I saw an episode of American Pickers last night. What I love about it is how they run their business based on honesty, morality & respect. Example: when someone asks for less than something is worth… they’ll offer more, rather than taking advantage of people. As a result of being honest & decent, their business is wildly successful & they are very highly respected businessmen. It makes my heart feel good to know that good is not completely dead in today’s world. The goal for today: honesty, decency, respect, morality… NO MATTER WHAT the rest of the world is doing! Have a great day everybody!
