Hold That Good Thought

About those thoughts running around in your head: Are they helpful or harmful? Do you know how to choose which ones prevail?

The soul becomes dyed with the color of its thoughts.

— Marcus Aurelius

In previous posts PattiAnn and I have looked at how our actions are forged by experience; in particular we observed from our readings and research that:

And we recommended: Continue reading » Hold That Good Thought

Success Through Vision

It’s not that people have bad ideas, it’s that they quit.

— Marvin L. Goodman
Father of Susan G. Komen

Instant gratification, it’s what we’re all about.  Most of us want to be rich or skinny or talented or married or divorced… NOW!  Human nature being what it is we don’t like to wait for anything.  We know that to lose weight healthily, we need to do it over time, gradually increasing our level of fitness and increasing the healthiness of the foods we eat.  But, HECK, now that we’ve made the decision, we want the effect to be as close to instantaneous as possible.  When it isn’t, we quickly get discouraged.

Some Things Take Time

As Albert Einstein said, “The only reason for time is so that everything doesn’t happen at once.”  The key to making time work for you is to have a vision that is so strong that it pulls you towards it every day.  Think about it, we don’t have a problem planning for our Continue reading » Success Through Vision

Where Do You Want to Go? Wait For It…

You are here, where do you want to go? Sometimes my impatience with “not knowing” works for me, sometimes it doesn’t.  How about you?

Even the wildest dreams have to start somewhere. Allow yourself the time and space to let your mind wander and your imagination fly.

— Oprah Winfrey

Have you sensed a theme in my recent posts?  Me too.  It’s not that I don’t have goals.  I do.  It’s that they lack joie de vivre – there’s no exuberance, no juice in them. So, even though I may be feeling the stirrings of new beginnings, my “vision”, my long-view is clouded and I’m left longing for some sparkling clarity! I am here, where do I want to go – I want to know now!

And while I’m counting on myself to create a new vision book that will engage my conscious and unconscious mind into knowing what my dreams really look like, I’m also feeling the equivalent of writer’s block… As I’ve said before, I’m not looking for standard future fare: career, family, retirement, leisure activities – been there, done that, enjoying the fruits of my labors. No, this is a different nut to Continue reading » Where Do You Want to Go? Wait For It…

Start Somewhere

If you don’t know where you’re going, can you get there from here?

We can’t have full knowledge all at once. We must start by believing; then afterwards we may be led on to master the evidence for ourselves.

— Saint Thomas Aquinas

Recently I wrote about my frustration at not having a vision for going forward: And, as often happens, a teacher (several in fact) appeared… First I came upon a simple e-mail poem that struck a chord:

It is only a tiny rosebud, a flower of God’s design;
But I cannot unfold the petals with these clumsy hands of mine.

The secret of unfolding flowers is not known to such as I.
GOD opens this flower so easily, but in my hands they die.

If I cannot unfold a rosebud, this flower of God’s design,
Then how can I have the wisdom to unfold this life of mine?
So I’ll trust in God for leading each moment of my day.
I will look to God for guidance in each step of the way.

The path that lies before me, only my Lord knows.
I’ll trust God to unfold the moments, just as He unfolds the rose.

— Unknown

Interesting, simple analogies about roses and butterflies are teaching me that I don’t need to figure it all out right now, I can figure it out as it unfolds…

Cup o’ Inspiration

Take a short break and consider the following:

“Mere thoughts are as powerful as electric batteries – as good for one as sunlight is, or as bad for one as poison.”

Frances Hodgson Burnett
