Don’t Give Up 5 Minutes Before the Miracle

Don’t Give Up 5 Minutes Before the Miracle

The only time you fail is the last time you try. –Anonymous

Have you ever heard the statement,” My life is falling apart so it can come together in a new way”…there is a lot of truth with these words….there are times right before we give up that the final product, the true romance, the project will fall in place. I love Steven Covey’s book, Seven Habits for Highly Effective People . To me it is one of the best books ever written about self actualization and self management. He said to KEEP THE END IN MIND….to go to where you would like the end result to be and then come back to today and integrate little steps towards the goal. You may not be able to afford a trip to Paris next week but you could a get a set of luggage, order a passport, and get brochures from an agent. Then set aside a bank account/savings account specifically for your Paris trip. There is always a door and a way. I think we spend more time arguing our position versus looking for new solutions.

What are you about to give up on? Read Steven Covey or listen to his tapes. It helps if you redefine what you are expecting to happen. Maybe the delay is necessary due to all the pieces not being ready.

My friend taught me a lot about relationship because she would say, “I’ve spent as much time divorcing my husband as I have being with him.” She was always willing to be on the edge of leaving so she could see clearly what their relationship needed and she would give him permission to do the same.

Next time you are getting ready to walk away, transform your thinking and see if a new clarity is right in front of you… maybe leaving or quitting isn’t the answer, maybe new direction is.

God is a Principle

God is a Principle

God does not sit in the sky occasionally changing and re-arranging the clouds for more comfort. He doesn’t have a notepad and pen taking notes on what you and I are doing or not doing- Quite the contrary- God the Higher Power is our Collective Creative Consciousness.. The I AM of everything! 

Communication with God is Personal

Communication with God is Personal

People sometimes ask me, “How do you know when God is speaking to you? Can you really hear that voice?” These are timeless questions. Being a seeker and an observer, over the years I’ve found three discernible methods that God has used to get through to my sometimes thick head and heart. There have been…

Inherent Love

Inherent Love

My life was always instructive, though at times painful, I have lived long enough to realize that my family members could never have loved me any more than they loved themselves. Their definition of love was simply not enough to fit in my definition. Because of their lack of love, I had to discover true…
