Some random thoughts to pass the day


I hate those who say, opportunity only knows once. Opportunity never stops knocking, but there are those that only hear it once. Keep your ears open, and listen for the next knock of opportunity. The new opportunity may come in the form of new friends who are on their way. It may be that the ideas you need will find you. Opportunity may give you another chance. Life around you may start to feel brighter. Give opportunity a chance, you will start feeling lighter and brighter. 

Love is rising. Be still. Prepare. Others will call you lucky. Your loved ones are so proud. You know they ain't seen nothing yet. Just because you learned the secret, opportunity keeps knocking and you keep listening. Look out world a giant is stirring. A giant is waking up. Like a country song.

Life is how you make it 

Don't all those goody-goodies who tell you that life is "how you make it" make you want to scream?!

Me too, but let us have patience with them.

Life's not about how you make it, it's about the glory of living deliberately and crafting circumstances, magnetising players and forging alliances, leveraging life and engaging the magic so that you can have the sun, the moon, and the stars.

What happens when someone worries?

Basically, they think of 100 reasons why something might go wrong. And all those thoughts then struggle to become things, sometimes overriding their more constructive thoughts.

That is the power of worry.

Now, let us say you want something fantastic to prove in your life.

Hypothetically, let us say you want a successful blog or writing career.

Have you closed your eyes yet and imagined 100 reasons why it might come to you easily, fast, and harmoniously?

I think you should.

Do you visualise?

You eat to nourish your body. You sleep to rejuvenate your spirit. You study, work, and apply yourself for emotional gains. You exercise to tighten your muscles. You listen to music to entertain yourself.

You are not at all averse to investing time and energy for the rewards you seek.

So how about you spare just a few minutes every day to visualise the life of your dreams? Because nothing else you could ever do will make such a profound difference in your fortunes and misfortunes as working with new pictures in your mind.

Can you start today to think good thoughts?

When you think a new thought, entertain a new dream, or mentally choose a new goal, your thoughts "leave" you and go out — in every direction — to the farthest corners of the planet. They carry a life force all their own, like ripples created when a pebble is tossed into a pond.

You cannot change this, but you can totally use the heck out of it.

Think good thoughts.

You were pre-qualified

It's not really a matter of feeling worthy of love, friends, health, or wealth. Or of appreciating what you already have. Or even of learning to love yourself. These don't have to come first. You don't have to wear a halo to make the changes you want. 

It's simply a matter of understanding that if you do your part: visualisation, prepare the way, and act "as if," without looking over your shoulder for quick results, what you want must be added unto you… as will the feelings of worthiness, appreciation and loving your most lovable self.
