“In a world filled with hate, we must dare to hope. In a world filled with anger, we must still dare to comfort. In a world filled with despair, we must still dare to dream. And in a world filled with distrust, we must still dare to believe.” – Michael Jackson
You know that feeling of being so down that you feel like you’ve been robbed of hope? We’ve all felt that way. You might even be there right now: when everything seems to go bad all at once… You’re not alone! There is a saying, “It gets the darkest right before the dawn.” If you’d just hold on tight and not let go, you’ll get you wanted to go. No one can tell you exactly when, but you will! So this week when you face challenges, remember: it’ll all work out, somehow!
Ok people, it’s the weekend again! The week’s stressful routines are over. And we’ve long past the universal “phheeww” time (Friday, 5 pm); at least here in the US. So why in the world are you still on your PC instead of on your way to some fun place? :-p A buddy of mine went to Vegas for the weekend! Now, that’s some serious good time! B-) Well, since you’re nerdy enough to be here right now, you might as well enjoy it.
“Never hate those people who are jealous of you, but respect their jealousy. Because they are the ones who think that you’re better than them” – Unknown.
Ok today, I’ve got something to say about haters! But first, I must say, I dislike the fact that the author of this quote is anonymous. I would’ve loved to send him a fruit basket, with some ramen noodles in it (not much, maybe just a pack or two!)
Have you realized that once people start doing good, a flock of haters start attacking them? It’s almost a natural law! People watch you toil and stress to get to the top, never saying any encouraging words! But once you get there, different theories and versions of your dubious means to the top hit the mainstream media!
Nido Quebin has been a source of very incredible motivation to me. Here’s a very short segment of one of his seminars. Hope you pick something insightful from it! Rock on!
“You simply will not be the same person two months from now after consciously giving thanks each day for the abundance that exists in your life. And you will have set in motion an ancient spiritual law: the more you have and are grateful for, the more will be given you.” — Sarah Ban Breathnach
Tony Robbins in one of his seminars listed what he felt are the six needs to achieve success: Certainty, uncertainty, significance, connection and love, growth, and contribution beyond self. The last one is what I’d like to hit on very briefly.
For some of us, it might be a pretty difficult task to imagine people living without the very basic human needs. Things like clean water, food, clothes, some form of shelter. But whether or not we can imagine it, or dare to believe it, it’s the truth. It’s a fact; there are people who lack the very usual things we take for granted. The fact that you’re on this page right now reading this text tells me that you have access to the internet, you probably own a computer or some other device that allows you access to the internet. Even if you don’t have a lot of money, I’m pretty sure you’re not TOO worried about how to get food.
Lately, I’ve been so engrossed in the impact of relationships to our success in life. And how real success is attained only when we have our family and friends around to celebrate with. This seems paradoxical because nearly every successful – world class top performer – I’ve heard or read about has had at least one divorce. At some point, it seemed like neglecting relationships is the sine qua non for exceptional success! It’s not so difficult to understand why, since you need all the time you’ve got to immerse yourself in your work to get to the top! But if you agree with me that we need our loved ones to be truly successful, then read on!!
Here’s what I’ve found to be true: Your present will soon be your past. So, if you’ve had a regrettable past, u can start working on your present to make it a better past!
We’re given tremendous opportunities in life to improve – to be better at something, or generally to be better people. That’s why it’s great that life seems to come in doses (days, weeks, months, and years). It’s great because it gives us the opportunity we need to improve on our past. Once we grasp this, our terrible pasts seem to lay off our shoulders a little. Because now, we know we have the opportunity today to correct the mistakes of yesterday. This week to correct the mistakes of last week. This month to correct the mistakes of last month. This year to correct the mistakes we made last year!
Ain’t that amazing? If only we’d choose to start making those adjustments and changes now, by God’s grace, we’re given another shot at making better memories! So, don’t drag on about what you did wrong in the past. Do it better right NOW!
What most people don’t understand is that a thought has a frequency. We can measure a thought. And so if you’re thinking that thought over and over and over again, if you’re imagining in your mind having that brand new car, having the money that you need, building that company, finding your soul mate…if you’re imagining what that looks like, you’re emitting that frequent on a consistent basis. – John Assaraf
Lately, Jack Welch – former chairman and CEO of GE – has been a dominant source of inspiration to me. I’ve really learned a lot from him in the past couple of days. I believe you’ll find the things he talked about in this video very helpful. Have fun!
