AYD - Jan 4, 2013 - Light Every Corner

"The Power you discover from believing in yourself and your dream, is strong enough to bring light to every corner of your life."
- Pierre Couturier

I knew I wanted to write a book, but without truly believing in myself, I was having a hard time embracing my dream.  So, I was deeply thrilled that special morning I found my inspiration, and so much more.  When I sat down and had written the first passage for "All She Is...", I knew immediately that not only had I found the heart of my book, but I had also found the message in my heart for everything I had ever believed in.  That message needed to be shared.  I believed in it.

My Dream was alive! And with it, every part of me came to life.  The freshly discovered power of my desire rushed through me and lit up all of the hidden spaces in my thoughts and feelings; bringing them all together.  I could see them all so clearly now.  I could see how all of the pieces of me were finally aligned and moving forward as one. I had discovered my life path.

I encourage you to dream.
You must Believe....in your dream, and in yourself.
And then, Take Action toward your dream,
with determined focus and strong desire.
You have the Power.

This whole piece today was my submission to a little book called The Collective Soul, Vol 2.  Compiled by Kathleen Mailer.

My point... your personal belief in whatever it is that drives you passionately, your belief powers your energy.  And your energy, gives light to your belief.  You are self sufficient in your success.  So should you feel tired and weary, or hope is slipping, or your heart is heavy from the chase ... pause for a moment, reflect on moments of gain and success.... remember your feelings at moments of success, remember the small achievements and how they fuelled the engine to keep driving forward. 

Remember... and then Light Every Corner.  You will find your path again. 
Gather your successes - they will show you the way.  I suspect I will meet you on the Path.
Welcome, and good morning.

AYD - Jan 3, 2013 - A New Year, A Good Gameplan

"Always... Unconditionally... Follow your heart. Understand that persistence, hard work, and determination are the keys to success."
- Barbara Cage, Poet

Know it.  Feel it.  Value it.  And most of all, Repeat It.  Daily.
At lunch.  During a coffee break and on rainy days.  Think it when times are low, and continue to chase the awareness when times are great.

I have goals this year.  Goals that will reach out and touch each of you.  Persistance, Hard Work, and Determination are not only the keys to me being successful with these goals, they are my past Inconsistant Efforts.  My missing ingredients.

Do not make a "resolution".  Make yourself a simple, easy to stick to, easy to manage, I think I can, I think I can, I think I can consistant plan.

We can do whatever we set our mind to.  But we have to set our heart and mind on it.
Many of us do, and then stop... do again, and then stop.  Why?  When we know the riches are there with effort...how can we choose to take detours of our own design, away from what works?

I want 2013 to be my signature piece. It will not be my most successful year, because I will make it my foundation year.  The one the bigger ones are built on.  The one that defines the path to where I am going. 

I will follow my heart.  Care to join me in achieving success?
