Thank You!

imageI am truly humbled by the outpour of Love I have received in regard to my book being published… & I can’t thank all of you enough. What’s really cool about this is that it stands as a giant reminder of how impossible it is to succeed at anything without each other. I could not have accomplished this without the help of so many people. Everyone I have ever come in contact with, has actually contributed to this book in some way, shape or form… & most of you probably don’t even realize how much you have helped me. I thank God, country & every one of you… I couldn’t have done this without you! The goal for today: give credit where credit is due! Have a great day everybody!

Admit My Own

Humble: Having or showing a consciousness of ones defects; modest.
I was always afraid to admit that I made a mistake. I thought that admission would make me look stupid… but in reality it was my inability to admit my mistakes that made me look bad. Everyone makes mistakes, everyone screws up, everyone does dumb shit at times, but the only time it turns into a major problem is when we refuse to admit it. The goal for today: admit my mistakes… even when know one else in the world is willing to admit theirs! Have a great day everybody!

Thinking

“What you think upon grows” ~Emmet Fox. For some reason I refused to believe that it could be that simple. If I think about misery, depression & unhappiness… that’s what I get. If I think about peace, contentment & happiness… that’s what I get. So the next time someone or something is troubling you… think about something else. I know you are thinking “easier said than done”… but Right thinking is actually a hell of a lot easier! The goal for today: think Right, feel Right, act Right… in that order! Have a great day everybody!

Humble = Simple

As long as I remain humble… life remains simple.

My life can get very complicated when I refuse to admit my mistakes.

I end up drifting miles away from the beaten path as I bend & twist & turn every detail of a situation, in an attempt to avoid admitting that I was wrong.

On the other hand… if I stay the course… tell the Truth… spot, admit & correct my mistakes to the best of my ability… life becomes Free & Easy!

The goal for today: keep life simple by practicing humility & feel the Peace!

Have a great day everybody!

Remain Teachable

If I think I already know everything… then I can’t be taught. 

I’ve learned a lot in my 42 yrs here, but I have come to believe that the Truth is infinite & therefore, there is much left to learn. 

Most of my life I was pretending to be smarter than I was because I was afraid that saying “I don’t know” or making a mistake, would make me look like a fool & people wouldn’t like me. 

Now, saying “I don’t know” is telling the Truth & people tend like Honest people. 

The goal for today: know the Truth, but remain teachable! 

Have a great day everybody!

Get Help… Give Help

Thank God someone helped me… I really needed it. 

But getting help will only lift me up temporarily; it’s giving help that will lift me up permanently. 

When I get help, I must seize upon that moment to get myself together so I can be helpful to others, because long term, genuine Happiness only comes from giving. 

The goal for today: accept a hand up, but never stop there… keep extending that helping hand back out to others, because real Happiness comes from giving! 

Have a great day everybody!

Respect

The words ‘I don’t know’ command respect.

Today’s world is being run, almost entirely, on opinion & it sucks!

I lived my whole life like that… I would give you my ‘opinion’, write it off as a fact & proclaim myself an authority on the subject.

I have since learned how to admit when I’m wrong… to admit when I don’t know & I have a lot of respect for others who do the same.

The goal for today: I will earn respect by teaching you what I do know & honestly admitting what I don’t know!

Have a great day everybody!
