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.

Blessings in disguise

If we allow them to, our trials can help us to grow and develop in ways not possible without them. Stay strong and stay the course.

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.

Change your thoughts - change your world.

Change your thoughts and you'll change your world.

I Will

There is a small book called, "That Something" which contains a powerful story of rags to riches, and the power behind this change. It is a very short read and well worth it, see below link. But ultimately, it is a story of mindset. We all get to choose our own path, which can be a path of being acted upon or a path of action. To be acted upon, means that we are a byproduct of our circumstances, and we lack the ability to change or influence the direction of our path, it is just what it is. The path of action, means that our circumstances are a byproduct of our mindset and actions, and we control the direction at all times. 

The reality is that there is actually only one path and that is the path of action, but we determine the direction of the path, up or down based on our actions or lack thereof. So, people create their own path down due to their inactivity and negativity or their action and positivity. 

We need to always have the mindset of "I believe" and "I will." As we do this consistently we will start to see our circumstances starting to bend and be shaped by our new mindset.
