You are more.

So, I’m a pretty big believer in the idea that thoughts are things.

So it’s no wonder that I feel like a failure in life when I *believe* the thought that “I should be better, richer, wealthier, more successful.”

And the honest truth is that I am already those things.

Those qualities are already within me:

I am rich – in love and compassion.

I am wealthy – in abundance of life and energy and health. I have shelter and food to sustain me.

I am successful – I’m growing. And isn’t that one of the main purposes in this life anyway?

Now, I may not have all the money I desire, and I may not be where I “think” I should be yet, but the truth is this: I am where I am now because I’m supposed to be here.

And I don’t have to know the reasons why.

I just have to show up in life. Like I know I’m able.

If my purpose really is to love and connect and inspire, I should be feeling like a success each and every day that I’m alive!

So as I sit here and take another deep breath I start to let go. Letting go of all the pressure I put on myself to be something “great” in the eyes of others. Letting go of defining who I am based on the number in my bank account.

Because ultimately we are all in this together. We are all seeking purpose. And drive. A reason for breathing.

So maybe the answer is to simply let go. To find compassion within. For not only others, but for ourselves as well. Because that’s what really matters in this lifetime.

On our death beds, we won’t remember everything, every moment. We’ll only remember the ones that truly meant something.

So my challenge to you is this:

#1: Decide on your purpose. It could be anything. You get to choose.

#2. Let go of the false expectations and beliefs you have for yourself.

#3. Give the gift of compassion. To others, and most importantly, yourself.

Life is too short to live it anxious, depressed, let down, disappointed, discouraged, scared, sad, and lonely.

It’s time to rise up and truly live!

And it all starts right here.

Right now.

With our thoughts. Our beliefs.


I love you. Thank you so much for reading! I hope this message inspires you to greatness.

Take care, and remember – you are more than your bank account. You are more than the things you own, and the stuff you buy.

You are you. So rock it out!

Go out now and live the best life you could ever imagine – the life of your dreams! (It is possible..) 😉

 

Message from a notebook

CAM01076

So this is a short(er than usual) and sweet message from my personal notebook..consider it from my heart to yours. ❤

And to be honest, it was something I wrote up in an attempt to get some good content on one of my sales pages on my website.

But as I was re-reading it, I decided that I really just wanted to share it with you now. And not try and sell you on anything. (Except for perhaps inspiration and general awesomeness in life.) 😉

I just want to help those out there who have lost the spark. Lost that drive, the momentum, that force that sets your soul on fire.

So, without further ado…here it is:

My message. Going out to everyone. (Especially me.)


Who is bold enough to not only want, but is actually willing to change their life?

Let’s do this people.

No more crying and doing nothing about it. No more wishing and hoping some magic pill will finally work this time.

What it takes is doing the work.

There are no shortcuts to lasting success.

What it takes is doing the right things. Making good decisions.

What it takes is persistence.

Keeping our eyes on the goal. Knowing what our goal even is!!

And knowing (truly believing) that even when it’s hard, even when we feel like giving up–that we won’t because we will eventually make it!

Whatever we want will come to fruition eventually, because we’ll do what it takes to get it.

We’ll not settle for less. Never accepting “no” for an answer.

Our dreams will come true.

But we must first believe. (We must!)

If anyone else can do something, so can we. Period. They’re only human too.

(Even if they’d like to believe differently and want you to think they’re something special..)

SO.

Nobody’s coming to save you. Nobody is going to do it for you. There will be guides, there will be inspiration and gifts from the universe along the way, but ultimately it comes down to this:

* What do you want?
* What plan will you create?
* And how will you take the action (that is necessary) to really make it happen?

No hoping here.

Just trying different things until it works. No baby ever started walking after falling a couple times. (Right? They kept trying and trying and falling and finally worked up the muscles to do it!)

So my message here, (to myself mostly), is to keep trying. And persist, damnit!

Start believing in yourself, then others will too.


I love you all! Thank you for reading. I hope this message inspires you to GREATNESS! 😀

With all the love and joy and passion a heart can hold,
