Be a Master of your own Destiny (2001 June McHardy
It is now a proven fact that this universe operates within a perfect system of natural laws. One of most universally recognized of these laws is Law of Gravity. According to law of gravity, we all know that if you walked off roof of a 12 story building anywhere in world, you'd go "splat" on sidewalk, whether you understood this law or whether you believed in it. The law would prevail.
Similarly, there are many other natural laws operating in our marvelous universe, one of which is "Law of Positive Expectancy". In other words, whatever you think about all time, with emotion, MUST be brought about in your outer world.
For example, when you get a great idea, and dwell on it, plan it and get excited about it, you activate universal forces which will draw in opportunities, people and resources to help you achieve your goal. However opposite is also true. When you start having fear or worry thoughts and dwell on them and visualize worst possible outcome you are using same universal forces to bring about exactly what you fear because what you think about expands and becomes your reality.
Therefore you owe it to yourself to always monitor your thoughts. Become a "mind policeman". Whenever you start thinking fear or worry thoughts, STOP!! Ask yourself these questions: How can I improve this? . . What can I learn from this? . . Is there an opportunity here?.
As soon as you change your negative self-talk into positive, you change your vibrations and you change what you are drawing into your life . . because THAT IS THE LAW!
Good Grief, I Learned a Lot, Charlie Brown!Written by Jim M. Allen
For 50 years daily comic strip 'Peanuts' entertained millions of readers. Every day, adventures of Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Linus and whole gang provided many laugh-out-loud moments while at same time offering a daily inspiration and lessons on life.
With recent death of 'Peanuts' creator Charles Schulz, I reflect on how much I enjoyed sharing adventures of 'Peanuts' gang and I remember many lessons they taught me...
1. It's okay to be afraid... just don't let your fears control you. Charlie Brown often sat in bed and spoke of his fears, but no matter how scared he was, he always did things he wanted to do.
2. Persistence wins out. Charlie Brown often lost, failed at much, but he never gave up. Even though he knew Lucy was going to pull football away before he could kick it.... Even though he knew tree was going to eat his kite... Even though he knew his team would lose ball game, he kept on trying.
3. It's what you think of yourself that counts. Linus carried a security blanket for years and his friends laughed at him. They also laughed at him because he believed in "Great Pumpkin." Pigpen was a walking cloud of dust and dirt and was often regarded unkindly. Both characters, however, were always proud of themselves and believed they were as good as anybody else -- and they were right.
4. Sometimes you need to talk. One thing 'Peanuts' gang understood was importance of talking things out. Whether leaning up against Schroeder's piano or atop brick wall, they always had someplace to discuss what was of concern to them.
