‘The moments of happiness we enjoy take us by surprise.
It is not that we seize them, but that they seize us’
That no longer benefits you. Objects, ideas, habits, beliefs or relationships. Make way for the new to come forth in your life.
You have unlimited wisdom
You have more power than you realize. More genius than you can imagine. More wisdom and knowledge than you can ever access. The heart is where wisdom resides. It holds the key to universal knowledge and intelligence. Become quiet enough to hear the call of your heart.
Give in to your best intentions. Give in to your dreams. Give in to the opportunity of this moment. Give in to the positive possibilities. You know how great life can be. Give in to your own unique greatness, and share it joyfully with all the world.
Give power to your choices
Being truly decisive means more than just making decisions. It means making a commitment to see them through. That takes action. And the sooner it starts, the more power it has. The moment you decide is the moment to start putting real substance behind your decision.
Today is a day to be treasured
This is a day to be treasured. Enjoy it. Celebrate your life, and the opportunity to live it. Allow yourself to feel the goodness that swirls through each moment.
Give life a pleasant surprise
Look for ways to give life a pleasant surprise. You don’t have to answer anger with more anger. You can answer with understanding, cooperation and compassion. You don’t have to answer criticism by being defensive. You can answer by being open, honest, helpful and appreciative. Step away from the expected and predictable, and you yourself will enjoy many pleasant surprises.
Today you know more than yesterday
It is often said that “if you continuously compete with others, you become bitter, but if you continuously compete with yourself, you become better. Remind yourself daily that your goal isn’t to be better than anyone else. Your ultimate goal is to be better today than you were yesterday, and have a plan in place to help us become even better tomorrow.
You have what it takes
You always have what it takes to turn things around. Life never has to get you down. Out of the difficulties you can make progress. You can choose to see the best possibilities. And the moment you see them, you can begin moving toward them.
You are the architect of your life
Architects are skilled in planning, design, and oversight. Similarly, you are the architect of your own life. Vision is key! Your vision is your blueprint for the future. Create structure and align your actions with your heart.
Stand up for yourself. This can be really challenging if you are used to having others have their way or if you’re a people pleaser. Don’t trim yourself down to suit everyone else. Standing up for yourself is a way to ensure other people respect you and don’t try to push you around or manipulate you.
Enjoy the beauty of what already is
Let go of your obsession with struggling and striving for more, and enjoy the beauty of what already is here. Stop thinking that some new richness will fulfill you, and fully experience the richness that is already yours. Instead of fighting your way through each moment, open yourself to the possibilities for joy. Instead of focusing so intently on what you need, dive deeply into the value of all you have.
Sincerely care about others
It’s very easy to say you care, and even to look like you care. It’s much more difficult to actually do it. Sincerely caring about others isn’t just a matter of being nice and agreeable. The world cries out for caring people. Care enough to respect, to positively challenge, to insist on nothing less than the best, and permanently raise those you care about to a higher level of living.
Love yourself, be good to yourself
Despite all the things that you think may be terribly wrong with you, love yourself. Love yourself! Tattoo it on your brain. And be good to yourself. Do things that inspire you daily. Do something every single day that makes you feel good. Love yourself and be good to yourself. You will inspire other people to do the same.
We are all connected
We are all connected: to each other, biologically, to the earth, chemically and to the rest of the universe atomically. Scientists in the movie ‘What The Bleep Do We Know!?’ are talking about ‘a sea of energy’ and that we all are part of this sea. We are droplets in his big universal ocean and so we are all connected. They talk about a universal consciousness which is the binding force of all life. Our own individual consciousnesses are all part of this one universal consciousness.
Embrace all of life’s experiences
Embrace what comes on your journey. Have faith that you are not given anything you cannot handle. Go with the flow that life offers. Instead of trying to go upstream, let yourself feel the course of life.
Whatever you seek is within reach
You are not that far away from where you want to be. You are only a single decision, a single instant, a single positive action away from the direction you wish to go. Whatever you seek is within reach. What you must do, is reach. Go with enthusiasm and the greatest of expectations along the path that is already in front of you.
‘I believe that every single event in life that happens is an opportunity to choose love over fear’
Experiencing love is a choice that is made and strengthens with practice.
You are someone special
You are an individual being, with very special talents. You are a light in the world. Follow your inner star to sparkle and shine in your own unique way. You have a beautiful soul and an outer body and personality. Always remember, you are someone special!
View life as a joyous dance
Don’t worry, be happy. Whatever life gives you, you can turn it around. Dance your way through life!
Allow and accept
Allow the beauty and allow the challenge. Allow the frustration and allow the joy. Allow the certainty, the confusion, the harmony and the dissonance. Allow yourself to be, in this unique and magnificent moment. Feel the full power of existence, feel the goodness that is possible, and allow it to come to life.
Be prepared for a miracle
Anything can happen at any time. Be open to a fabulous positive outcome and you will attract some magical energy. Our expectations determine our outcomes. Expect the best.
Trust your inner wisdom
Inner wisdom is a tool for quick and ready insight. It’s a gut feeling, a sixth sense, an inner knowing, an instinct. It’s a hunch, a stillness, a quiet inner voice. You can turn to your inner wisdom when you need counsel. Your intuitive mind tells your logical mind where to look next.
‘Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us, it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.’ ~Marianne Williamson
The place to start is where you are
Are you having trouble deciding on the first step to take? Just pick a step, take it, and you’ll suddenly be in a much better position to know what must be done next. Instead of waiting and wondering, speculating and procrastinating, worrying and making excuses, just go ahead and start. Put your time and energy into moving forward.
It is the simple things
‘It’s the simple things in life that are the most extraordinary’ ~Paulo Coelho
Happiness often comes cheap, learn to enjoy the simple things in life. Taking only a minute to enjoy something simple could be the difference between a so-so day, and an extraordinary one. In our crazy-busy and overstimulating world it’s easy to overlook the small that could fill the day with joy. Your morning cup of coffee or thee. A smile. Your favorite tune on the radio or the sunset…
You have the power to create
The good news is you are totally responsible for your life. The bad new is you are totally responsible for your life. No matter what the circumstances are, you can start fresh and create whatever you want. Do what you can with what you have where you are and take action every day towards your goals. There are no limits to what you can create, accomplish and contribute… unless you believe there are.
Make good things happen
Though others may sit around nurturing their doubts and dreaming up excuses, you have much better things to do. You have the energy and the willingness to make good things happen. This is a day to make real progress in a meaningful direction. This is a day to engage yourself with your best possibilities.
You can do it
Yes you can! Whatever it is you wish to do, you can do it. Whatever things are possible, are possible for you. No matter what amount of disappointment you’ve known, no matter how many times you’ve fallen short, you can start right now, this very moment, to work your way steadily toward your dreams.
Be the beauty…
…you know you are! Take time to do something wonderful. Take time to do something that reminds you of how precious and beautiful life is. Feel the immensity of existence. Be the beauty that you know you are.
And it will spread. Be genuinely enthusiastic, and you’ll be impossible to ignore. People are drawn to enthusiasm. When you truly believe in what you are doing, it shows. And it pays. The winners in life are those who are excited about where they’re going.
