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.

Hope for Tomorrow

May 6, 2011

Ever notice how things sometimes get harder as you approach completion of a worthy endeavor?  Sometimes when we feel overwhelmed, all that stands between us and utter breakdown are our attitudes and  our hope for tomorrow.  My daughter Chelsea put it eloquently, ”

“Fighting while smiling, even though I feel there is nothing left to give.. Though the thunderstorm hurls winds, lightening and rain, I know a rainbow awaits.. somewhere, sometime.”
Michael Thomas, Program Manager, University of Michigan, Dearborn, whose interview was chronicled in  my book, IF YOU CAN’T CALM THE WATERS LEARN TO RIDE THE WAVES – HOW TO SUCCEED IN TURBULENT TIMES,  said, “Faith, education and hope  will help us weather any storms.”  It may feel like you are faced with more than you can manage but hang in there.  You will get through it.”  Keep the faith… For “Joy cometh in the morning.”

Choose Then Move

Below are thoughts from If YOU CAN’T CALM THE WATERS LEARN TO RIDE THE WAVESHow to Succeed in Turbulent Times

“Who we desire to be and what we desire to accomplish is a choice that we had better make for ourselves because there are many people out there who would do it for us, on their terms.“   

How to Succeed in Turbulent Times

Choose to move to your vision

Anything that moves you forward is moving you forward.  You have the vision; you make the decision.”

“Reserve your right to choose.   It is a human inheritance that deserves embrace in a deliberate way.   We are responsible, ‘response able’ when we consciously choose.” 

It’s All Relative! Count Your Blessings

February 5, 2011

Things usually aren’t as bad as they seem.  This does not mean you don’t have it bad compared to how it was.   It only suggests that it really could be worse, so count your blessings.  Look for the positive in the situation and reestablish your footing.  You may have had more snow than you have seen before but it is unlikely that you have had as much as some and they made it through.   You can get through it too!

Anthony Robbins says ask yourself the right question and you manage your state of mind. When we focus on the good we have more energy to address the issues at hand.  Ask yourself, “What’s good about this, or could be?  Sometimes all there is to do in the short run is to create enough space to get by.  A little positive action can make all the difference and positive action is preceded by a positive perspective.  The one who has maximum influence of your perspective, of your thinking, is you.

Position yourself to take action.  Make the best of what you have to work with and enjoy the process.  If you can’t calm the waters, learn to ride the waves.

1] Prayer Power- Take Inventory – Count Your Blessings… Regularly

January 19, 2010

“One of the most under-rated principles on the road to happiness and success is the principle of Counting One’s Blessings.   Counting your blessings opens you up to the wealth of the universe.  It also paves the way for further gratification.  When you appreciate what you have, you automatically create the capacity and magnetism to receive more.

By focusing on your blessings you engender a spirit of gratitude.  An attitude of gratitude lifts the spirit and provides one with a welcoming demeanor.  In your social and business transactions, which personality types attract you?  Would you gravitate toward someone who is critical, pessimistic, narrow and selfish or someone genuine in spirit, warm, welcoming and optimistic?  Indeed, there is a place for all elements and you may benefit by clearly deciding which characteristics you care to embody.  We tend to gravitate to what we prefer.  Focus on the positive.”
