We need greatness in the world more than we need any other single human or natural resource. As we move further into the 21st century perhaps for first time in history, we can think about the possibility of an entire society of great individuals. Anyone who is willing to take command for his or her own greatness is giving the world the best possible gift.
We all have dreams of one sort or another, but there are those of us that make excuses for not pursuing them. Often these excuses aren’t overt. It’s more a matter of inertia, of just ignoring the dreams, of maintaining the comfortable status quo. But one can break out of ones comfort zone to get more out of life.
You are immensely more creative than you could even begin to imagine. You came fully equipped as a creative being on the day you were born. Along with a beating heart and pumping lungs, came the ability to create. In any capacity. In any realm.
The really bad news is in order to use ones creative gifts to their fullest capacity you have to give something up. For many this is something very near and dear to their heart. One has to be willing to give up the belief that they are inessential. You have to behold yourself and all that you are and all that you do with an attitude of absolute love and honor and respect.
Our creativity, in whatever form it takes, was given to us as a way to access and express the deepest parts of whom we are. It is connected to our internal guidance system, also known as our intuition, that guides us with nailed down certainty to make positive, optimal life choices. It is a powerful tool for healing on both spiritual and psychological levels. And it keeps us viscerally connected to what is passionate, vital, and meaningful in our lives.
Life keeps happening, every day. Just because we don’t name the direction, doesn’t mean that we aren’t going in one. Every day we have the power and opportunity to create and define the lives that we want to live. Remember life is happening right now and it’s up to us to make it all that we want it to be! We cannot move forward in life by sitting on the bench. We have to get into the game.
An easy way to get started is to get into the habit of saying ‘yes’. And this includes instances when you’re not sure how you can aptly pull off the pursuit you’ve chosen.
One thing is definite for every venture we enter in to; we are destined to grow and flourish just by being a participant. And even if it doesn’t turn out quite the way it was envisioned; we are (always) bestowed invaluable treasures that can be handy in future pursuits.
From time to time, ‘No’ can be a fitting response. Particularly when by saying no, we’re really saying yes to something else. Just say, “No” so that you can say “Yes” to the things you really want to do. When we say, “Yes” to something we don’t want to do, we actually say, “No” to what we do want to do. Remember. This is your life.
Do you want to spend it doing things you don’t want to do or by doing what brings you joy, happiness and contributes to your overall satisfaction?
Wayne Dyer explains it so beautifully when he says; “The answer to how is Yes! When you say Yes to life, you attract divine guidance. This divine guidance shows up as ‘inspiration’. And, when you are inspired, you’re collaborating with fate. Everything starts working for you. The most profound and important thing a person can do to erase fear and access the power of intention is repeating these five key words: I want to feel good!”
Your curriculum is your life. Your participation is not optional. The degree of your suffering is. Life Is Good because you say so.
When you lose your inspiration and dreams, you wilt. We have so many people walking around who are lifeless and don’t even know it! What is it that inspires you, what do you dream? Or better yet why did you dream and then stop? We do not stop playing and dreaming because we are old; we grow old because we stop playing and dreaming.
The welcome mat is waiting for everyone to live that unqualified Yes! There is more than enough love, joy, happiness, and prosperity – all the gifts, all the blessings to go around. The unqualified love of the universe says to us, “Your wish is my command.” The invitation is clear.Give your unqualified Yes to Life.
When you dance, your purpose is not to get to a certain place on the floor. It’s to enjoy each step along the way. That’s what life is. There’s no way to happiness. Happiness is the way. It’s what you bring to life..
