Love Yourself

I finally found the secret to learning how to love yourself… & it’s pretty simple. The secret ingredient in self-love is altruism… the unselfish concern for the welfare of others. The only time I don’t love myself, is when I don’t care about you. I’ve learned that trying to love myself while not caring about anybody else never works, because it’s selfish. And we have to be careful that we don’t confuse self-love with selfishness. Self-love is a direct result of giving love out freely to others. The goal for today: know that the ONLY way to love myself is to learn to love others! Have a great day everybody!

Surrounded By Trouble

I go out of my way to surround myself with people who are selfish, resentful, dishonest & afraid. 

Why? 

Because they are the people that need my help. 

It would be selfish of me to throw these troubled souls out of my life so ‘I’ can be at peace. 

Actually… my peace comes from helping them. 

Their trouble can’t affect me if I’m living the Right way & not allowing them to take advantage of me. 

The goal for today: help others become better people… because that’s how we make the world a better place! 

Have a great day everybody!

Why?

Why do we lie, cheat & steal; why are we so angry, depressed & anxious; why do we hurt each other? 

Now I know the answer… SELFISHNESS!

I lie, cheat & steal to get what I want; I’m angry, depressed & anxious when I don’t get what I want; & I hurt people because I will do whatever it takes to get what I want. 

And then, like magic, when I stop being selfish, I start getting what I want. 

The goal for today: know that giving freely of myself to others, will get me what I really want… Happiness, Peace & Freedom! 

Have a great day everybody!

Selfishness Keeps Me From Seeing The Truth

People can deceive me when my thinking is self-centered.

If I’m paying more attention to me than you, I will miss all the signs that tell me whether or not you are telling me the truth.

Everyday, many times each day, I try to remind myself that helping others is the most important thing to do in life.

And the best way to help others is to pay attention to them, which can only be done by paying less attention to myself.

The goal for today: ask God to help me not be selfish… because I can’t help you, if all I’m thinking about is me!

Have a great day everybody!

Clear, Concise & Consciously Aware

My problems are the result of selfishness, dishonesty resentment & fear.

My solutions are the result of Selflessness, Honesty, Love & Purity.

All life is a paradox!

I can’t help myself, except by helping others…

Admitting that I’ve lied, is Honest…

The only way to stop hate, is with Love…

Fear will cause the things I’m most afraid to happen.

The goal for today: understand the paradox, live in reality & experience Life the way it was intended to be… be clear, concise & consciously aware!

Have a great day everybody!

For All Of Us

“This country will not be a good place for any of us to live in unless we make it a good place for all of us to live in” ~Theodore Roosevelt.

The only way to fix the problems we face in this country & in this world, is to give up our selfish, self-centered ways & actually start caring about each other again… there is no other way!

I don’t care how many laws we write, or bills we pass, if we don’t stop living selfishly… we can’t fix this.

The goal for today, actually care about somebody other than myself!

Have a great day everybody!

Simplify & Solve

I once had a problem that I literally spent a good twenty minutes trying to explain to a friend & when I was done rambling through a million minor details, he said… “Oh, so you were thinking about yourself too much” & I thought… could it be that simple?

The goal for today, stop
complicating my problems… they are all caused by being selfish, resentful, dishonest & afraid; then I can stop complicating the solutions as well… which are all brought about by being selfless, loving, honest & pure!

Have a great day everybody!
