If you were to get everything you wanted, now… all at once: What would there be to look forward to? What would there be to hope for? What would your future look like? What would you wait in expectation for tomorrow?
~ P. Williamson
I’ve notice that in the past, like many people, I was always wishing I was doing something different, thinking about what I would do in the future, making plans for my life to come, reading (with jealousy) about cool things other people were doing. Continue reading Always See Your Life As Being “INCREDIBLE”
Life Comes At You Fast. But, always Look ahead! You have a long life of promise in front of you… and you don’t want to do anything that could hurt your future. Because life is full of curves and twists. Just like the highway, if you take your eyes off the road of life too long, you might lose control and end up hurting yourself.
You’ve seen the road signs that say, “Danger Ahead!” It’s a fair warning to be careful as you advance on your journey on the highway. But in life, there’s danger behind you too. And the danger I’m referring to is when you spend more time looking back at the past years of your life… either wishing you could have them back, or wishing you could totally erase them – because it haunts you every day.

We always want things to be different. We don’t know why… we just do. So, we strive to improve things – even ourselves – when we are unsatisfied with how things are. But then what? Most times, we are still unsatisfied, because the underlying cause of our problems isn’t the things around us, but it’s our expectation of things.
Learn to enjoy life for what it is. Every now and then… take a moment, sit down… and reflect on your life. Continue reading Learn To Enjoy Life For What It Is…
“I wish I had more time!” That’s what most people are accustomed to saying whenever they have too much to do… but not enough time, seemingly, to do everything they want to do. It’s an overwhelming feeling. However, it’s just a feeling. Everyone has the same amount of time, but somehow, most people fill up the container of their days with too much stuff.
You’re not obligated to do everything just because you think you have to do it. When you realize you’re trying to fit too much stuff (tasks, errands, obligations) into a small container (24 hours), it becomes obvious that you can’t get a bigger container … so you have to get rid of some stuff. Everything just won’t fit. Therefore, you have to always think simplifying what you have to do. Continue reading Over Commitment of Your Time, Can Drain You…
You can do it. Yet, you have to know it can be done. The fear you feel… you can overcome it. But, overcoming takes practice. Then, more practice. And even as you learn to overcome one fear… soon after, another fear will appear, and you have to practice a new set of tactics all over again. But still, you can overcome it… because you are an overcomer.
Overcoming anything, especially fear, is a process of awareness, acceptance, seeing the pain, finding gratitude, and living in the moment with a purpose.
Every problem you face is rooted in fear. That might seem obvious, but the real question is how to beat the fears. To know the answer, you first must determine the Why and the How. Continue reading Accept What Scares You. But Don’t Let It Stop You…
Choose your path. Having a happy life is about making your own choices. The way everyone else does things won’t work for you all the time. That’s a simple, but true fact. A life filled with possessions does not equal happiness. And, just because everyone else thinks something should be done a certain way, it doesn’t mean it’s the best way, or the only way.
When it comes to others, be helpful, compassionate, be kind and be grateful. However, you should never try to live up to their expectations. To live your life freely, you have to free yourself from the shackles of meaningless customs that other people set up for their lives, so you can live a life of spontaneity and freedom.

“People who repeatedly attack your confidence and self-esteem… are quite aware of your potential, even if you are not.” ― Wayne G. Trotman
If someone tells you that they don’t care what other people think, they are fooling themselves. Actually, it shouldn’t matter… but for some reason it does.
No one is free from worry.
Everyone is trying to look good in the eyes of others.
Everyone stresses out about how they look.
Everyone stresses about how they’re perceived.
Everyone stresses about whether people think they’re good people.
That’s why Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, blogs and mirrors exist. Continue reading It Doesn’t Matter What Others Think of Me. Or Does It?
