To be so strong that nothing
can disturb your peace of mind.
To talk health, happiness, and prosperity
to every person you meet.

To make all your friends feel
that there is something in them
To look at the sunny side of everything
and make your optimism come true.

To think only the best, to work only for the best,
and to expect only the best.
To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others
as you are about your own.

To forget the mistakes of the past
and press on to the greater achievements of the future.
To wear a cheerful countenance at all times
and give every living creature you meet a smile.

To give so much time to the improvement of yourself
that you have no time to criticize others.
To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear,
and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.

To think well of yourself and to proclaim this fact to the world,
not in loud words but great deeds.
To live in faith that the whole world is on your side
so long as you are true to the best that is in you.

Christian D. LarsonYour Forces and How to Use Them 

It is always good to sit down and have a conversation with ourselves as to how our life has been spent throughout the year. This reflection is a must before the year ends to welcome the NEW YEAR clean of conscience, full of optimism and with the best perspective.

A self-talk will oftentimes reveal certain issues in your life that are not too visible in your cluttered world. Below are 15 Big Life Questions to ask before you can welcome 2014 as the most empowered version of yourself.

  1. What did you do to empower yourself this year?
  2. How many lives have you touched positively?
  3. What clear message you got from God  and how do you plan to do it with your utmost obedience?
  4. What are you resisting and what are those you are willing to surrender?
  5. Are you growing in alignment of your values like love, honesty, peace, and success?
  6. Who did you ask forgiveness from?
  7. Who did you forgive?
  8. What are the things that shackled you and how do you plan to liberate yourself?
  9. Do you really and truly know what love is so you can forgive yourself for the bad choices you have made?
  10. What are the things you’re willing to let go this year and will never dare to bring with you at 2014?
  11. What do you know for sure about life?
  12. Do you surround yourself with positive people and friends that will lift you up? Why not?
  13. Why are you still angry with someone by willingly carrying that burden of weight rather than forgiving and letting go?
  14. Why are you still sitting there in self-pity and not yet moving on?
  15. Are you genuinely happy? Why not?

The world will take another revolution around the sun. The year is about to end. There is really nothing you can do about what had happened BUT you can choose not to live in your past. You can only do this by coming into a resolve with yourself by agreeing with your “authentic self“.

Remember, you can never have a good start if you will not have a peaceful end. 

Let go. Love. Trust again. Move on.

Dare to Be

When a new day begins, dare to smile gratefully.

When there is darkness, dare to be the first to shine a light.

When there is injustice, dare to be the first to condemn it.

When something seems difficult, dare to do it anyway.

When life seems to beat you down, dare to fight back.

When there seems to be no hope, dare to find some.

When you’re feeling tired, dare to keep going.

When times are tough, dare to be tougher.

When love hurts you, dare to love again.

When someone is hurting, dare to help them heal.

When another is lost, dare to help them find the way.

When a friend falls, dare to be the first to extend a hand.

When you cross paths with another, dare to make them smile.

When you feel great, dare to help someone else feel great too.

When the day has ended, dare to feel as you’ve done your best.

Dare to be the best you can –

At all times, Dare to be!

Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes of your goal.

You are the CREATOR of your own destiny. If you want to make your dreams come true, the first thing you have to do is, WAKE UP.

Always act like you’re wearing an invisible crown. Always take off “t” from the word “can’t” and make it very big “CAN”.

Failure is simply the STEPPING STONE to SUCCESS.

A man who faced many rejections from the newspaper editor; they said he has no talent and yet he become the biggest creator as Walt Disney that we know today.

A man failed 10, 000 times before he made the electric bulb is Thomas Edison.

A man who failed in business at age 21, his sweetheart died at 26, had a nervous breakdown at 27 become the President of the United States – Abraham Lincoln.

Learn from the life’s stories of these people. Turn your negatives into positive. DON’T WAIT. The TIME is always right.

Create a plan for carrying out your desire and begin at once. Whether you are ready or not, put this plan into ACTION. Start your day with a POSITIVE LOVE to take RESPONSIBILITIES.

When your DESIRE is strong enough, you appear to possess SUPERHUMAN POWERS to achieve your DREAM.

Talk to yourself. The most important conversation you will ever have is the one you have with yourself.

Patience, persistence, and perspiration make an unbeatable combination for SUCCESS.

Go for it. Live with it. Think and GROW RICH.

The strongest action that you can take in any situation is to go to your knees and ask God for help. Whatever is worth worrying about is certainly worth praying about. Prayer unlocks God’s treasure chest of great ideas.

I will share with you one of my favorite prayers. It is one word: help.

“Help, help, help!”

When we pray, we must be simultaneously willing to take action that God directs in answer tour prayer.

There are four levels of prayer:

Level #1 is petition: “Father, I need…”
Level #2 is intercession: “God, help…”
Level #3 is praise and thanksgiving: “Thank you, Lord!”
Level #4 is conversation: “Good morning, Father.”

In Philippians 4:6,7 the apostle Paul counsels us, Do not be anxious about anything but in everything by prayer and petitions, with thanksgiving, present your request to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your heart and your minds in Christ Jesus. In Colossians 4:2 he says, Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful.
