Happy Thanksgiving — A Celebration of Gratitude

Today marks another Thanksgiving day— a celebration of gratitude.  What are you thankful for today?

Another year, another day, friends, family and even your enemies as they keep you on your toes. That being said, gratitude is an awesome word.  No matter what circumstance we find ourselves in, having a place in our souls or our hearts for gratitude gives us the opportunity to go on. Its give us not only the wisdom but the energy to put one foot in front of the other and take the first step and the second and then the third.

Gratitude is what gets us through dark days, and yes, we do have them. However, when you can put the thought of your situation aside, then you can think about being grateful. It opens up a world of opportunities for blessings and miracles for you.

Have you ever been in that situation, or know someone who’s been there? Pining away, wallowing in self pity because something dramatic has happened in his or her life? This may have gone on for years, or weeks,  or days. Suddenly the thought of gratitude filters through to the mind and leads a transformation so huge that you have to ask the question of “what changed?” To your delight, you get an answer that he or she cannot continue the old way because it occurred to him/her that there is still so much to give thanks for and that is what will happen.

See, gratitude brings clarity, and as of today, I want you to find gratitude in every situation. If you are alive to talk about it, then you must be grateful. Be grateful for the small things and the big things will eventually happen.  Gratitude is one of the ingredients to your miracles. Yes, it is. Be grateful on this Thanksgiving Day and continue to be grateful for the rest of your life.

Leave me a comment and let me know how you plan to go forward being grateful.

 

You hold the key to your success

You hold the key to your success. We all seek after that successful life and  some of us are looking in the wrong places for it. Sometimes, we seek after that “dream” job because we believe it will give us success. Other times, we seek after that house, car or even a partner because we have convinced ourselves that it will bring us the success we seek. How about money? Too many of us believe that, if we had more money we would have that successful life. There isn’t anything wrong with seeking or having any of these items. What is wrong is believing that by seeking and acquiring them they will make you successful.

Do you know the real hold back to that successful life (more…)

Failure not opposite Success

Failure is not the opposite of success for humans. However, failure is an overused word that you should remove from your vocabulary.  How can you be considered a failure? How can any human being be declared a failure? I have good news- no one is a failure. The classical meaning of failure is the state or condition of not meeting a desirable or intended objective, and may be viewed as the opposite of success.

Lets talk about the “state or condition of not meeting a desirable or intended objective” as a human being. The first question that comes to mind is whose objective? It is indeed a manufacturer’s objective if we are talking about a product. But since our discussion is about humans, it is the Creator’s.  See, when you arrived on the planet you came equipped with everything necessary to live your purpose driven life.  All the tools needed to do this are within you. They were placed there by your Creator. As a human you have the option to reach in and get them anytime. No one can stop you from doing that. It is your God given right. How soon you do that is up to you based on your experiences. But there is no timeline involved here as awareness must first come and upon enlightenment you will be driven to use your tools.

So based on our classical definition, your desirable or intended objective was decided by your Creator. It seems therefore that for someone to classify you as a failure they must know  what was in the Creator’s mind for you. In other words they must have access to your blueprint and equipped with information about you to perform a gap analysis on your life. I am delighted to tell you that NO ONE has that diagram or information on you. Thus, no one can decide if you or anyone else is a failure. This also means that no one can decide on your success.  You are  a  human living the life you were given.

You are a creator

maxine-profile pic2-blog 2-cw Are you aware that you are a creator?  Indeed you are the creator on your Alphabet Circle©. Now that you know it, strive to be the best creator you can.

Create, create, and create! Creation starts in your mind. You can create the life you desire. Know that your desires are in alignment with your purpose. What does that mean? It means that your purpose is what you were sent to the planet earth to do and your desires are there to fulfill parts of the elements of your journey. Your desires represent pieces of the puzzle of your life’s  journey. That is why you must create them. Be deliberate in this process.

Your story so far on your life’s journey is the one you choose to create. Consciously or unconsciously. Be aware of your authorship and therefore create the story you want. It is your responsibility.

You are responsible for your future. Create the future you want. You are responsible for your success. Create the path for this success. You are responsible for your failures. Create an environment to absorb any failures without allowing it to knock you off your path. You are responsible for your happiness. You must create happiness within. Others can bring you situational happiness. But as soon as the stimulus is removed, the happiness is gone. The bottom line, no one can make you happy, but you. Create whatever you would like it to be; success or failure, happy or sad. That kind of creative power in inside of you.
