You Think You Have The Power To Change The Past

Thank you Marala Scott for crafting this message. Marala reminds us that though we have a rear view mirror, our focus should be looking ahead.

Your Words of Inspiration

When you drive down a road you won’t return to, the view behind you narrows until what was once there fades into history such as with life. –Marala Scott

 

It’s interesting how we’re able to hold onto negative experiences and give concentration to what happened instead of creating a solution to resolve those emotions. If you’re reading this, your life didn’t stop because of them. Regardless of what you think, you are meant to go on and persevere. Perhaps you can help someone else along the way. Allow experiences to make you stronger instead of weaker because God willing, you’ll have a long trip ahead of you and will need the strength you’re wasting on negative history. Shift your heart and mindset to make use of the life you have in front of you. Don’t dwell on the one behind you that can’t be altered in any capacity. When…

Stop Digging & Start Building – Manage Your Money

When times are hard and you  “run out of money” before “running out of month,”  we tend to feel a little strained.  When this happens month after month things can get pretty ugly.  This may not be the best time to  “go with the flow.”  Sometimes you have to fight your way out of a difficult financial situation to reclaim your equilibrium.  

Shift your mind set from worry to wonder.  Go from thinking about poverty to thinking about prosperity.  Consider new partnerships and new possibilities.  Consult with successful people and competent professionals who can offer strategies, resources and perspectives to improve your situation.  If you are in a hole you do not want to be in, STOP DIGGING.  Begin to minimize outgo (spend less) and begin to maximize income (Earn more).  Image

You can begin reclaim control by creating a budget.  Check with your financial institution for tools you can use.  Presently (at the time of this post), there is an engaging video to help you get started on making a budget (The url was long so just click making a budget), sponsored by Bank of America.

You can employ a business idea, sell good stuff you no longer need online on sites like craigslist or in a yard sale.  It doesn’t have to be sexy.  Consider taking on a part-time job or business. Be resourceful. Do some research .  The following is an excerpt from IF YOU CAN’T CALM THE WATERS LEARN TO RIDE THE WAVES- HOW TO SUCCEED IN TURBULENT TIMES.

“Many resources and possibilities are at your fingertips to help you get started.   Visit the websites and blogs of business magazines like Entrepreneur Magazine and Black Enterprise Magazine.  [Check your library or borrow a copy of the magazine from a friend.  If you decide to buy, consider sharing subscriptions and costs, at least in the beginning.]  Business and finance are green; don’t be dissuaded if you are not Black or African American.  Great information and inspiration can be found there.  Visit other specialty sites as well.  Visit government websites like www.sba.gov  and http://business.gov/start/index.html .  Visit another of my blogs, http://www.harebrainedebusinesses.blogspot.com .  It is “freakin’ amazing” what is available.  Start today.”

You can do this.  Role up your sleeves.  Employ your self and/or your resources where you can.  Create, acquire assets and stop wasteful consumption.  Temporary reductions in spending while increasing avenues for generating income can reap impressive results.  “Inch by inch, everything’s a cinch.”  You can do this.  You CAN DO THIS. #prosperity #partnership

Quantum Success Will of Fortune

Man jump

Quantum Success Will of Fortune acknowledges our innate hard wiring to perpetuate what we believe and know  to be true in our individual realities.   What we believe is may as well be because we will tend to act as if it were true.  We will even produce outcomes, recollect experiences and interpret our present experiences to validate what we believe.  It is difficult for some people to shift to new situations.  The belief that things are as they are have so much evidence that it is difficult to consider that there may be other possibilities than those cemented in the belief.

Quantum Success represents starting point for implementing positive change as it is our connection with our spiritual selves, with God and the universe.  Knowing this part impels us to engender positive attitudes, thoughts, beliefs and values.  With a solid foundation of self perception, our actions follow suit, leading to a series of positive outcomes.  We are able to see the silver lining in the cloud; we can create lemonade from the lemons of life’s experiences [and channel positive perspectives about our outcomes to our memory].

Quantum Success (qs) is the center of the Will-of-Fortune.  It is the core of life and living.  Imagination stimulates and facilitates.  Imagination creates.  The essence of individual reality is fostered by imagination.   It can be used to create or to destroy.

When we realize our oneness, we feel in harmony with the rhythm of life.  The path to Quantum Success is a personal journey.  At times, we are inspired by a loving touch or a sincere compliment. 

The path is also filled with challenges.  Recognizing the unlimited capacity that exists within us unleashes powerful resources.  We generate and interpret messages or themes within ourselves.

Filter all that you feel, think, and say, in Faith, Hope, and LoveThoughts, feelings, and beliefs become words, deeds, and other manifestations. From: IF YOU CAN’T CALM THE WATERS LEARN TO RIDE THE WAVES

Know “Thy Selves “

Each of us has many selves.  We have a physical self and a spiritual self, a thinking self and a feeling self.  We also have a private self and a public self.  These selves are all interdependent parts of our being and their sum total makes up our whole – “self”.

Your spiritual self experiences life through our physical self and your physical self has the potential to affect the experiences of your spiritual self.  Being aware of and in tune with our spiritual self enables us to connect with our potential.  Only then do we begin to understand our purpose and realize that we are not alone but part of a greater whole.

Our response to any life experience is the sum total of what we think and feel about it. What we think about an experience defines that experience and what we immediately feel in a given circumstance often results in an automatic response.

Sometimes we attempt to establish a hierarchy of “Selves.”   Some consider the thinking self to be superior to the feeling self.  Yet feeling reflects the experience of thought.  It bridges the spiritual thought to material and vice versa.

To know one’s self is to understand our connectedness to one another; and to love one’s self, truly, is to love all there is.  Conversely, to love another is to honor (and love) the Self.

We do not always create what happens to us; we create how we experience and respond to what happens to us.  We have the power to define the impact of each life experience. We determine how we are going to be as a result of the experience.  Excerpt from: IF YOU CAN’T CALM THE WATES LEARN TO RIDE THE WAVES – HOW TO SUCCEED IN TURBULENT TIMES  www.tinyurl.com/calmwaters
