The dignity of being human is that we have the choice of what we can do with our lives. The challenge is to attempt to play out our time to the greatest potential of our beings.
“All life forms thrive to the max of its potential except human beings. How tall will a tree grow? As tall as it possibly can. You’ve never heard of a tree grow half as high as it could.” Jim Rohn
One of the most powerful things that a human being can possess is hope for the future. Continue to have hopes and dreams of what your life can become. Strive to live out the best possible outcomes for yourself.
“I’ve learned to dream with my eyes open. When I see it, I get exposed to it, I wanna be it. You don’t have to be famous to do any and everything that you want to do in your life.” Tyrese Gibson
Your imagination can take you places. Use it to inspire you to become the greatest version of yourself and accomplish your goals in all arenas of life.
Everything is energy; this is not a new concept and is considered to be simple science. But a fundamental certainty we aren’t often taught is that while the energies of the Universe are forever reacting to one another in one shape or form, and the forces behind these interactions are electric and/or magnetic, these forces also exist within each and every one of us and are as much responsible for our individual emotional growth and spiritual awareness as they are for the expansion of the cosmos.
The progress of your life to one that is better and happier hinges on one major occurrence. This is the eventual realization that you yourself have the power to change your circumstance. Just decide what goal you wish to realize and everything else will flow from there.
“Make a choice right, just decide, what it’s gonna be, who you gonna be, how you gonna do it. Just decide.” Will Smith
As a woman, one of your gifts is your profound intuition. You sense, see, and feel things beyond the physical. You know things way in advance. People may call you crazy, unreasonable, even unrealistic, but know that nothing revolutionary was created by dreaming small and buying into limitations.
We talk a lot about self-love, but talk does nothing. If we are in a relationship where someone says they love us, but then their actions don’t show that love, we don’t feel loved. Our body just doesn’t get it. The same is true for self-love. In order for it to be healing and nurturing, self-love needs to be fully embodied. We need to feel it.
The golden rule is probably the most vital, positive, constructive principle in the world (in both a spiritual and practical sense) and it’s always been just sitting there right before us, waiting for us to notice it, take it and use it. It’s likely we even heard about it from our mother or family when we were children. There in the recesses of our mind is this incredible, powerful, yet simple, universal, commonsensical means of developing true spirituality, improving our lives and the lives of others.
Many times in life we’ll be hit with failure or disappointment and get knocked down to our feet. At this time you’ve got to have a reason, a deep-seated why that will make you persevere. You have to learn that it’s never the end. You have to stay focused and never ever give up.
“You know in life, you go big or you go home. Try to climb and I didn’t get to the summit today but it doesn’t mean I’m gonna give up, It doesn’t mean I’m gonna stop.”
You see, the majority of our choices and actions don’t come from our conscious mind, but rather, from our subconscious mind. And our subconscious mind is like an open, eager child. It listens to the content of what we say and obeys. If you say “I’m always late,” “I’m bad at math” or “I’m broke,” your subconscious mind takes those labels in and continues to recreate those identities and tendencies.
In the event that you ever battle getting up in the morning, you have to watch this persuasive video including artist Misty Copeland, TV character Steve Harvey, and Steve Jobs. They discuss how chasing your dreams, your interests can and will propel you.
If left to it’s own devices, the Ego can become one of the most chaotic and confusing things in your life. Especially if you have to deal with someone who has unconsciously let their own Ego run rampant and out of control. On the flip-side, however, the Ego can also be quite simplified and subjected to only a single role, and if used properly can be one of the best tools in your spiritual toolbox. That single role is that it can and will always show you those parts of yourself that still need to be looked at, healed and integrated into your heart.
