Thanks for our time together

"Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier."--Mother Teresa

It has been my hope that I have left you better and happier.

I hope you have enjoyed our time together, but for now our time must end.

We have been sharing ways of changing our lives for the better, bringing us pathways to success, happiness, fulfillment, faith and hope.  We have explored many ways of being all that we can be.

We must always have an attitude of gratitude for all we have been given.

Hope must always be present in our lives and we must always expect the best.  Remember that what we expect we usually get, not what we deserve.

Peace must always be in our heart, mind and spirit.  A peaceful person calms chaos simply by being peaceful.

A joyful heart spreads joy to all.

Love is the greatest healer and the greatest gift that we can bestow and receive.

I wish you success in all things.  I wish you love, joy and hope.  May the positive energy of the Universe always be with you.

Patience is protection against wrongs

"Patience serves as protection against wrongs as clothes against cold.  For if you put on more clothes as the cold increases, it will have no power to hurt you.  So in like manner you must grow in patience when you meet with great wrongs, and they will be powerless to vex your mind."---Leonardo da Vinci

We sabotage our life with lack of patience.  If we have patience others react to us in a positive manner.  People will do more for us if we give off positive vibrations.

Patience surrounds us with peace and peace acts as a layer of protection in the tension filled world we live in.  It is the barrier we need to be comfortable and secure.

Patience allows us to relax and enjoy life and prevents the wrongs of others to affect our well being.

Patience also teaches us the philosophy that  "No one can harm us unless we allow them to do so." Patience slows us down long enough for us to reason in our minds and make the right decision without jumping blindly into a situation that we have not thought out well enough to make a sound decision.


I will develop patience and conquer wrongs with well thought out plans and therefore be ready for all circumstances, which may occur, using that circumstance to my advantage with my patience.

Up from humility to success

"The road to success leads through the valley of humility, and the path is up the ladder of patience and across the wide barren plains of perseverance.  As yet, no shortcut has been discovered."--Joseph J. Lamb

So you were experiencing humility, now experience pride.  Be patient on the ladder of success but do so with a winning spirit.  Pull away from humility, it is a deep valley, and climb the ladder of success with perseverance.  Persevere and refuse to give up.

Do not allow others to undermine or undervalue you as a person.  Just because they say it does not mean that it is true.  Feel in your heart that you are a valued person and that you are on your road to great success.

Just keep trying new things.  If one thing does not work for you then try another thing.  Keep persevering.  Keep experimenting.  Life is an experiment.  We just keep trying until we get it right.

The more we try the greater the chances we will be successful.    The more chances we take the greater the success.


I will move from the valley of humility up the ladder to success with patience and perseverance and with great determination.

Develop a sense of pride

"If there is one characteristic that all great champions share, it is an enormous sense of pride.  That's true in all walks of life.  The people who excel are those driven to show the world--and prove to themselves--just how good they are. “---Nancy Lopez

I want you to have pride in yourself and show the world the stuff you are made of.  Show the world how good you are.  Feel good about yourself.

Think of the successes you have had in life and review them.  You are the same person now that you were then.  Perhaps a little older but much wiser.

When you walk, walk with a straight back.  When you talk, talk clearly and distinctly and look people in the eye.  Discontinue the slumping posture and downward position of the head.  Head up, straight back and eye contact says that you are a winner and are unafraid of what life may bring.

When you speak use a calm and strong voice and clearly speak so that you can command attention by your presence.

You are a winner in life and you can show the world.  You are the champion of your circumstances.


Today I will show great courage and pride to the whole world.

Sacrifice what you are for what you could become

"The important thing is this: To be able at any moment to sacrifice what we are for what we could become.".--Charles DuBois

What are you doing now?  What if an opportunity to do something you have always wanted to do suddenly and unexpectedly appeared in your life?  Would you sacrifice the tried and true that you are doing now for the unexpected?  Would you gamble on what you could become?  Or would you be afraid of the uncertainty involved with the change?  Are you afraid to gamble on the future?

Ask yourself what is the worst thing that could happen if I took the risk?  What is the best thing that could happen if I took the risk?  In reality it would be somewhere in between.

Then go someplace where there is peace and quiet and sit quietly for awhile and ask your inner self if this is what you should do.  Your inner self has all the answers.  All you have to do is sit quietly and ask for guidance.

Do not allow fear or insecurity to enter into the decision.  Keep an open mind and a sense of adventure.  You will know what is right for you.


Do not cloud your vision with routine.  Allow yourself to become what you can and should become.

For every obstacle there is a solution

"For every obstacle there is a solution--- over, under, around and through.  You are successful the moment you start moving toward a worthwhile goal."--Chuck Carson

Have you ever studied a problem or obstacle and decided it had no solution? Then you did nothing and it become even larger and more obtrusive?

Every obstacle does have a solution.  You can go over it or around it, under it or through it.  However, you have to do something or start moving toward a worthwhile goal.  The obstacle does not go away.  You must take some sort of action.  Do not sit paralyzed with indecision.  Make a decision and move toward your goal of removing the obstacle.

Do not let fear or doubt sway you from your path.  Full speed ahead and do it now.

The more decisions that you make towards removing this obstacle the smaller it becomes until it no longer exists.  Make up your mind that you can do it and start on it right away.

The self-satisfaction that you feel when this removal of the obstacle is complete will amaze and gratify you.


Today my goal is to remove obstacles in my path and I will feel great success in doing it.

Attitude can make or break you

"Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal, nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude."--Thomas Jefferson

Have you ever started a project with an attitude that it just won't work and you were right? It did not work.

Have you ever started a project with the idea that you were going to be successful and you were despite others insistence that it would not be successful?

The crucial difference here is the right mental attitude.  The right mental attitude leads to success and the wrong mental attitude leads to failure.

This is why it is so important to have the right mental attitude for everything you do, say or feel.  Take the time to examine your feelings. Let your inner self guide you and then make up your mind that you are going to find the positive side of every event or happening in your life.  The more optimistic you are the greater the good opportunities that occur in your life.

It is the basic law of attraction--- what you expect is what you get.  We must train our mental attitude to expect the best.


My attitude can make or break me and it is within my power to change it.
