“You can accomplish anything in life, provided you do not mind who gets the credit” (Harry S. Truman). That way any route navigated has potential to produce many delectable fruits. Possessing this humble approach allows true selflessness and greatness to permeate our world. The wonderful gifts we can give by minimizing our own egos and maximizing caring about helping others enhances their joy, as well as our own.
“It is human nature to think wisely and act foolishly” (Antatole France). If people think they should live with integrity, yet do not follow through on promises, there will be inner conflict. When we say and do what is harmoniously in sync with the internal blueprint regarding how we believe our lives, including the world around us should be, magnificent beauty and peace of mind triumphs. Integrity is only working at half its potential power when a person believes his or her integrity should be 100%, although only behaves honestly 50% of the time.
The insightful, practical, and applicable Bible advises, “Ask and you shall receive.” Formulate your own powerful questions and receive superior answers toward solving problems. Be the solution to your own problems, circumstances, situations, goals, dreams, or desires, today. Nobody owns your thoughts, attitudes, beliefs, behaviors, dreams, life philosophies, destiny or life, except you. Practice outgiving everyone around you in terms of being better than anyone else expects from you. Under promise and over deliver.
“If I can stop one heart from breaking, if I can ease one pain, then my life will not have been in vain” (Emily Elizabeth Dickinson). Remember that motive matters greatly. Relationships of great value are truly invaluable. Focus your time and resources upon adding value to the human condition by generously helping others with your time, talents, skills, gifts, and abilities.
“One thing life taught me: if you are interested, you never have to look for new interests. They come to you. When you are genuinely interested in one thing, it will always lead to something else” (Eleanor Roosevelt). Believe you can achieve your dreams, subsequently prioritizing what you want, when you want it by, why you want to acquire those goals, and how you will make that happen. Back this up with a persistent ardent insatiable hunger and thirst, leading toward attainment. Be passionate about what you do, who you are, and how you can contribute toward impacting and making a profound difference in the lives of others. Serving people brings joy that morphs into greatness, which far exceeds all compromise. Enhance your gifts, talents, skills, and abilities toward generously helping others, therefore filling yourself up and keeping your cup overflowing with goodness.
“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you” (Matthew 7:7 NIV). Develop an insatiable hunger toward going after your transparent desires with an unstoppable, unyielding, relentless, determined, and courageous tenacity for results. Indeed, it is true that we get what we tolerate in life, as well as receive our genuine, honest, clear, and must have desires by asking, planning, doing, and becoming.
Look for good or bad in yourself and others and you will find it. Moreover, while considering to purchase a new automobile or driving one, we begin to see it everywhere because we are looking for it. Bundles of nerve pathways located in our brainstem collectively called the reticular activating system (RAS), filter and eliminate wasteful stimuli, while allowing essential data in. Thanks to our RAS, we can hear our names being called in a crowded noisy room and immediately become aware. Eventually, what we consciously seek, such as goals, becomes an unconscious automatic finding in our subconscious minds. Practice being a good-finder in all people, places, things, and events. In impossible we find possible, in can’t can, in hopeless hope, in faithless faith, in unbelief belief, and on and on. Again, look for good and you will find it. Delve deep within yourself to unleash those seeds of greatness our almighty God planted in you before you were even born.
“Wanting to be someone else is a waste of who you are” (Kurt Cobain). Embrace being the one and only beautiful original you. Being who we are is more important than what we do. Let’s focus our identities and self-image upon attaching them with who we are internally, and as children of God, rather than being defined by a job, career and other societal or self-imposed labels. Faith, forgiveness, love, community, and gratitude in something greater than ourselves leads to purpose, peace, and resilience. Be bold by being unapologetically you.
“Trust yourself, then you will know how to live” (Johann Wolfgang von Goethe). We become better human beings by doing things that force us to break through fear and live outside the box where limitations do not exist. People must drive outside their confining boxes or realities of life, therefore engineering a new highway in order to make the unknown known.
“He that won’t be counseled, can’t be helped” (Benjamin Franklin). Remember that the Bible, among other wise suggestions, philosophies, and advice give extremely helpful tools to live prudent and productive lives. You must decide for yourself what works best. Please remain open-minded, while embracing PMAs. Why is it that everyone is trying to do me good?
