Smiles are always in fashion

This is my sister and a few of her kids and I simply love this picture. It made me so happy just looking at it. Can you look at this picture and not smile...I didn't think so. 😀

Gratitude brings joy and happiness

My daughter Cessilee and I made this quote together. She found the awesome picture and then we selected the quote together and started designing. Since it is Thanksgiving this week, I thought it was fitting to help bring some more gratitude into our lives. Spend just an extra 5 mins daily on your knees in prayer or in your journal expressing the gratitude that you feel in your heart.

Everything Changes

This is a very powerful quote. There is a falsehood that we oftentimes buy into that kills progression. This falsehood, is that we have to be perfect or have everything in place before moving forward. Although we should do our best, we also must be courageous and move forward without everything in place. And as this quote points out, the reality is that tomorrow brings change that we have to adjust and adapt to anyway. Therefore, if we are trying to be perfect first, then progression will not happen because you will be constantly changing to adjust for the change. Let's be courageous and just move forward.

Change Your People

Growth Summit live was off the hook. During a VIP dinner, Ethan Willis said, “if your can’t change your people, change your people.” Sometimes even though it is difficult and hard, the best thing to do is to let that employee or employees go. Ultimately, it is not serving them or the company to keep them employed. Set them free.

Comparison- thief of joy

"Comparison is the thief of joy." I love this picture because all four are identical and yet the one on the right has compared himself to the others and has found a way to be angry and lost all joy in the process. Let us retain our joy by not comparing ourselves to others.

Put all limiting beliefs or fears in their right place

I find the concept of evil thoughts or limiting beliefs very interesting. The source of all evil, limiting beliefs, and fears come from Satan and his minions. The interesting thing is that we would not take success tips from a begger or how to be a good citizen from someone behind bars, and yet we find ourselves listening to the evil one whose fate is sealed and who is miserable forever. His only purpose is to try and get us to join him. 

We are smarter than that, let us put Satan and all those who listen to him in their places and let all limiting beliefs and fears fall off our backs like water off the ducks back.

Protect your inner peace

This is a crazy world we live in and we must protect our inner peace from outside forces. As I coach clients I continue to be amazed at the long term impact even one negative word or action from youth or even just the past can have on an individual. As a youth we don't really know better, but as adults we do and we can take immediate actions to counter the effect of a negative word or action said or done to us. Just like this rock and it's pool inside, very little of the outside craziness gets in. We too must be more diligent in filtering the outside craziness and protecting our inner peace.

Don't let the behavior of others destroy your inner peace.

Faith is the strength the world needs

What a powerful quote! Helen Keller was amazing and she did not let the fact that she was deaf to stop her. 

"She was inducted into the Alabama Women's Hall of Fame in 1971 and was one of twelve inaugural inductees to the Alabama Writers Hall of Fame on June 8, 2015. Keller proved to the world that deaf people could all learn to communicate and that they could survive in the hearing world. She also taught that deaf people are capable of doing things that hearing people can do. One of the most famous deaf people in history, she is an idol to many deaf people in the world." https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Helen_Keller

She used her faith to see and interact with the world and thus miracles were seen all throughout her life. Likewise, let us walk by faith and we too will see miracles in our lives.

Seems impossible until done

Isn't this true? Our human minds tend to require the "seeing is believing" concept. Look at the 4 minute mile, it was first achieved in 1954 by Roger Bannister and now it is the standard for male runners. Let us not wait for a Roger Bannister to come along and show us how it is done, let us just believe in ourselves and make our dreams a reality.

God is my strength

Background image by: Rolf Schweizer https://flic.kr/p/WuY6CK

In my prayer this morning, I was asking for strength and the thought came to me that if I demonstrate faith in Him, I can be strong, because He strengthens me. I knew right then and there that I wanted to make a quote out of that. I had selected this photo earlier and now I found a great saying to put with it. 😀

I have been wanting to get in shape but my nemesis is food, I just love it. After my prayer, I realized it was not a matter of seer willpower, but rather I can use my faith in Him and he will take it upon Himself, so it is a faith thing instead. This was a very empowering thought and I got excited for my journey of faith and health.
