Change is coming! Prepare you and your families and friends. Remember If you say you can or you can’t, you are right either way. Taking the decision-making process away from people disempowers them. It also makes them much less likely to buy into the decision, however right it may be. One’s own conscience remains the ultimate arbiter. Keep high aspirations, moderate expectations and small needs.

Be mindful of the link between action and outcome. Ask yourself: If I repeat today’s action 365 times, will I be where I want to be in a year? One of the Secrets in Life is to Make Stepping Stones out of Stumbling Blocks. Remember some people are Slinkies…they’re really good for nothing but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.

In reality there are no limitations. They are vibrant and changeable to whatever form you want them to take to realize your goals. It is not enough if you just live life as it comes to you like a floating leaf in a pond. Make use of the powers bestowed in you and soar like an eagle.

What I am trying to say is people, are powerfully afraid of rejection. We do not survive well alone, so most as a species are especially vulnerable to thoughts that make us afraid the rest of the “tribe” will desert us to die a sad, lonely death. Your core, lying deep within you, is what makes you what you are. Some call it the soul, the Higher Self, the true self, the being and so on. The name is unimportant once you realize that you are more than your looks and outward appearance. You can’t hang around waiting for somebody else to pull your strings. Destiny’s what you make of it. You have to face whatever life throws at you. And if it throws more than you’d like, more than you think you can handle? Well then you just have to find the heroism within yourself and play out the hand you’ve been dealt. The universe never sets a challenge that can’t be met. You just need to believe in yourself in order to find the strength to face it. If you take any step, no matter how small it is, towards achieving your dreams then you will surely find the right path and reach the happiness and goals that lies in store for you.

Have a great Week!
