No Days Off

No Days Off

     Making positive changes in your life is a serious endeavor, never to be taken lightly.
Putting off until tomorrow what needs to be done today is not only self-defeating, it also complicates your life, making it harder and harder to experience permanent, positive change.
     In this world of instant breakfast, miraculous cures, mail order brides, wonder drugs and overnight healing, we begin to believe that achieving success and changing our lives can be instantly accomplished with a set of rote prayers we rehearse daily. When we are unable to manifest change, we ask why.  After all, we said our affirmations and prayers; we asked for help with our forgiveness issues; we listened to our “positive thinking tapes”. Nonetheless, we often neglect to finish the task at hand.
     Change is never easy.  However, it is necessary if we are to survive. 
     Identifying existing weaknesses is not enough. We must take positive steps to correct all errors.  If you are having trouble relinquishing debilitating behavior patterns, come to terms with this and seek help. Perhaps, the real problem is the inability to recognize that in spite of our perfection, this world is not an island. From time to time, we all need a helping hand. This does not take away from our true nature.
     Changing your life requires honest confrontation with uncomfortable issues on a daily basis.
     Prior to taping an alternative lifestyles segment for my television show, the staff and I enjoyed an amicable relationship, but suddenly, members started to drop out. I later discovered some were uncomfortable with the topic.

     Insisting upon remaining in the places we feel the most comfortable, makes any new growth impossible.
     Not being willing to extend the same respect we expect to receive to others, regardless of race, creed and sexual orientation will build an insurmountable wall that retards prosperity and intensifies turmoil.
     Infinite Kindness uses every circumstance imaginable to highlight our growth areas.
Everything we experience has nothing to do with others; it is our lesson, our moment of truth.
     Being dedicated to your true development will lead you into many uncharted waters. It is up to you. At every point during this journey, we make choices. We choose love or fear. Choosing love guarantees we emerge a new person. Shedding behavior patterns that are no longer for our highest good, will be the hardest, most difficult road to travel, but it will by far be the most rewarding.
      Several years ago, I developed the habit of complaining. No matter what happened—good or bad—you could count on me to find the bad. I would always be the first to find the “buts” in any situation. Over time, this behavior alienated me from my good. It became impossible to attract prosperous people and/or circumstances. For years, I wondered why everything in my life was going wrong. Once I realized I was responsible for this chain of events, I vowed to change. Changing was not easy, but change I did.

Now, I am conscious of all my thoughts, every word I utter and every action I take. At times I amaze myself at all the good things I continually attract. 
     If your most inner desire is to be as the Creator sees us, there are no days off. You must begin now to polish your most prized possession—YOU.
      Dream Big!  Life the life you have imagined.
      Remember life is too short to drink cheap champagne!
"Do not go gentle into that good night; find a hill worth dying for and take It; be the person you're waiting for; make today so awesome, that yesterday gets jealous and above all else do it Your way."
