Arriving

When we go through life looking for that next moment, the next breakthrough that will answer all our questions, we fail to live in the moment here and now and we miss the opportunities right in front of us. 

I’ll use blogging as an example. I’ve wanted to blog. I’ve been told I should blog. I’ve watched others blog. But I was waiting for that moment when things would fall in place and I’d be in the perfect place for blogging, the place when things made more sense and everything was all fitted neatly together like a puzzle piece. That isn’t life. 

As long as we live here on this earth we will continue to learn and continue to grow. Never under-estimate what you have to bring to the world today. What you have will bring hope and healing to someone, and don’t we all need healing and hope? 

Step out over and above your comfort zone. Follow what is in your heart. God is putting all the pieces together and creating a beautiful picture called “Your Life”. Let it unfold before your very eyes and before the eyes of the world to see. Many lives will be touched because of your journey and you will learn you are not as alone as you thought. You will be blest and find the tools to take the next step into your greatness. 

Keep moving forward. 

Our Mental Muscles

We have 5 Mental Muscles

Perception

Perception is how we see things. Things are not positive or negative. In our mind we create a positive or negative. To have the best quality of life we must perceive things as positive.

The Will

Your will is the things you do. Your will is what controls your life. You do what you will. You eat what you will. You say what you will. Desire creates your actions which creates your will. You must desire the reward to direct your will.

Memory

Memory is the things stored in your mind. Everything is stored somewhere. We choose what we want to remember and what we don’t want to remember. Our perception about things is what creates our choice in remembering or forgetting.

Reason

We can reason things out in our capacity of belief. Reason is formed in the mind. Which again leads us back to perception.

Intuition

Intuition is the things inside that you just know. You know that you know, and you don’t necessarily know why or how you know. Intuition is that God-part in you that enables you to move ahead when you don’t really know the outcome. Your Intuition is affected by your perception.

Imagination

Imagination is the things that are not developed as of yet. Imagination is in the creative part of our mind. Creativity gives birth to imagination. You must be creative to exercise imagination.

From Goals to Success

Just take a leap of faith!

As 2009 closes and we enter a new year many people are making goals for the following year. Some people will benefit from goal making by succeeding. Others will merely make goals in hopes 2010 will be different, but in reality they don’t actually PLAN the steps needed to attain their goals. Goal making is great however there needs to be a plan of action following the goals otherwise most of those goals will be just goals alone. Failing to plan is planning to fail.

The goal is the target you are shooting at. There is a span of time between where you are now and the success of your accomplishment. Some actions need to be taken in order to bring those goals into manifestation. And most importantly you need to know exactly what action needs to be taken to successfully reach the goal. The reason people are unsuccessful in reaching their goals is because they fail to plan the action steps.

Failing to plan is like shooting a gun haphazardly, missing your target, then saying, “But I was looking at the target. Stupid gun! Why didn’t it shoot right?” We know it wasn’t the gun or the targets fault. When you pick up a gun to shoot you need to have the end in mind. You’ll need to point the gun in the direction of your target and line it up aiming accurately. If you fail to aim the gun in the exact path of your target you will be unsuccessful.

Because of not successfully reaching their goals in the past, some people gave up on the whole idea of making any goals, saying it doesn’t work. The truth is it isn’t that making goals doesn’t work, but it’s because they failed to plan. It’s not the stupid guns fault. It’s because they didn’t aim accurately.

Success is easier than you think!

When you have a goal with a clear plan of action it is very attainable. So write down those goals that you had in the back of your mind. What would you like to get accomplished in 2010?

Step #1 is writing down your goals so you can see clearly what you want to do.

Step #2 is having a reason for each goal. Why is it important to you? What will it mean for you when you reach that goal?

Step #3 is being committed to reach your goals no-matter-what.

Step #4 is writing down an action plan for each goal you have. It may be an hourly, daily or weekly action.

Step #5 Get out there and do it. Make it happen. No one can hinder your success if you are 100% committed!  Plan to succeed and you will be successful. Succeeding to plan is planning to succeed.
