Quantum Success Will of Fortune

August 23, 2013

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.

Think you can or think you can’t – Either way, you are right

August 10, 2013

thinkl you can think you cant

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if life was smooth-sailing all the way? But time to time all of us have to navigate life’s ups and downs.  Learning to focus on what you can do today, instead of wasting time fretting about things, can make a big difference to your life and to the lives of those around you.

For each of us “my world” signifies something different.  It could refer to your life experiences, your relationship with God, your family, friends and colleagues – all the people that your existence touches.  The closer you get to the core of your world, the deeper the focus and intensity to serve.

Dr. Mark Holland said “Life is so fragile, that it would be a mistake to worry about making everyone happy – even the people in what you call ‘my world’.  You have to learn to recognize and be a good steward of what makes ‘you’ happy.”  He continues “In order to manage ‘my world,’ with all its twists and turns, it is important to focus on ‘my joy’ and minimize if not eliminate the frets, burdens, and worries that others put on your shoulders.  For if you are not happy, how can you make others happy?”

Glean the gift of the moment, of priority and take responsibility for your own happiness. Choose your paradigm.  The paradigm we construct perpetually becomes a wheel of fortune or a wheel of misfortune, based on the direction of our will, until we make a change.

Regardless as to whether you think you can or can’t do something, either way, you are right.  We so often focus on what hasn’t worked and what does not work instead of what has worked.  What has occurred in your life that has been right, been good?  What have you done to benefit yourself or those you love?

As Dr. Holland states in our interview, ”Seek to know God, seek to know yourself.  Be true to that first.  If you let your vehicle fall apart because you are too busy transporting everyone else, sooner or later, nobody rides.”

Clarify Your Purpose

December 29, 2012

We each make a difference, through our presence and our absence, through our actions and through our inaction.  By clarifying our purpose it becomes clear how our existence contributes to the betterment of life, When we clarify our goals our priorities are made clear. Inspired meaning infuses our lives.  Breathe in new possibility.  Embrace Divine Purpose.  It will help you calm the waters or ride the waves.

  • You are the offspring of those who persevered through trepidation, trials and tribulations. Not only can you make it, it is your legacy.
  • Sometimes we have to “restart and reset.”
  • We have the power to define our experience; indeed, that is what we do.
  • Remember to embrace “Inspirational dissatisfaction.” Be grateful yet discontent enough to be inspired to make a difference.
  • Think you can or think you can’t. Either way, you are right.
  • “Cherish the moment… [Do] not waste precious life worrying.” – Mark Holland
  • Creative possibilities emerge as we interpret and respond to the same stuff with anticipation.

So find a quiet or inspired space and ask yourself, “What is most important to me?  How can I make a difference while loving life?  How can I use my divine gifts?  Write your answers.  Get input and reserve your right to filter and assess.  Choose, act, adjust and enjoy.  You have already begun.  Thank you for BEING the difference you want to see in the world.

Knocked on Course

December 26, 2012

Sometimes in the midst of a mighty effort we may find ourselves derailed.  The wind knocked out of us, disappointed and disillusioned, disgusted with ourselves or/and our situation, we become disoriented.  Okay, this is undesirable to most of us, extremely uncomfortable at the very least.

Consider another possibility.  Consider the possibility that the very thing that is hindering you is also assisting you in building your strength, your resolve and your insight.  It can provide motivation.  Further, the challenge may clarify for you how much or how little you want it.  Things that come too easily sometimes tend to be valued less.  It comes so fast sometimes we think it can come again just as quickly and then, we squander it.  cherish the “easy comes” else they become “Easy go.”

Here is a third possibility, one that may really make you say “Hmmmm.”  What if  you are not being knocked off course but being knocked on course?  Ever hear someone say, “In retrospect, losing that job was the best thing that could have happened to me”,  or, After I let go,  my whole life turned around.”  Check out what Tyler Perry has to say."Sometimes your meant to be hidden." “Sometimes your meant to be hidden.”[/caption]

Maybe being unemployed will lead you to starting your own business or going back to school.  Maybe, just maybe, there is something more for you than what you lost.  You may have heard the saying, “some people are with you for a reason, a season, or a lifetime.   We don’t know which it is, we can only make the most of it.

Sometimes you have to be knocked on course to get it right.  Sometimes we are held back only to find a better path.  Tyler Perry, producer, director and philanthropist says that because doors were closed,  it forced him to create his own access way, to own his own path.  Think about this in your life and recognize your opportunity.  Set your goals to live in Divine Purpose.

Grow With the Flow!

December 29, 2011

As the year closes out to make way for the new, perhaps it is as good a time for you to consider too – What do you want? What will you do?

When we understand from whence we come, we free ourselves to consider past choices, smart and dumb. 

By doing so we build on this – we step into tomorrow with preparedness.

Much like the Yin and Yang of life’s interaction, we move ourselves with inspirational dissatisfaction. 

So heal your wounds and count each blessing.  Soon it will be unveiled- a completely new dressing.

Go with the flow and you will soon know, that life and living from within does grow. 

Follow your heart, follow your passion.  Follow your dream.  Take some action.  Sometimes it is what you do when no one takes note, that prepares you to get the ultimate vote.

Happy New Year.  Be thankful.   Believe and… Succeed!
