Hopefulness Rather Than Hopelessness.


“You’ve got to start with your gut, with something you’re really passionate about, for a good reason. You can’t get there by sitting in your closet and thinking, “Boy I know the world want this.”” – Charles Schwab.

As Shakespeare said, “There is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so.” If our thinking is colored by sadness, we will feel sad. Are we meant to live our life like a prisoner of our past ? Or, captive of our past conditioning which serves nothing but the continuity of our misery?

Be mindful, little stuff inside us left unchecked, could one day create some of the worst problems and unwanted consequences. Habitual self-degrading self-talk when consistently reinforced could lower our self-esteem and personal performance. Or, a small amount of consistent negative behavior in us could possibly create significant unwanted consequences one day.

Genuine greatness is not measured by quantity. Our highest meaning is to live our purpose. Accumulating stuff is a habit of some who are only interested in having. There are only two choices; we can work to do ourselves proud or we can let ourselves down. Remember, real change does not occur with a flash in the pan but with steady engagement ………………

Never be afraid to love
Never be afraid to just be
Just cast away the chains of doubt
Have the courage to be free

Open your eyes you can fly
Open your eyes you can fly
You can fly (uh uh)
You can fly

You can’t wait for others to applaud what you do
So just congratulate yourself
And start something new

Open your eyes you can fly
Open your eyes you can fly
You can fly …………….

  8. This was good. It’s true…our feelings do color our way of thinking. Thank you for the reminder. This morning things were looking a little murky. Now I’m gonna try to change my perspective and take on the weekend! 🙂

  9. This is right on time. Remembering the past is one thing, living in it is something else, sometimes to our detriment. Thank you

  10. Delighted to be sharing the journey with you. CC
