The Power of Control

The Power of Control
I know for some of us, life can be tough. Really, life can kick us down at times. Continue to work on yourself, be tough on yourself. When you are tough on yourself, life will become easier. We must take one hundred percent responsibility for our lives in order to get what we want. Taking one hundred percent responsibility means we can no longer play the blame game. It doesn’t work, and it robs yo...

This Is Faith

What Is Faith?
So what is faith anyway? What does faith mean? Faith comes from the Greek word “pistis” which literally means to have trust or confidence in someone or something else. I find it ironic that the Greek word “pistis” so closely resembles the slang word pissed, as in “pissed off,” which means to urinate or make or become angry. Maybe it’s just me that sees the humor in that. Do you get angry or uncomf...

Why do you think the way you do?

Why do you think the way you do?
Let’s look at a few categories of life: God, Health, Family, and Wealth. Were you taught that God loves you? Keep thinking that way. God’s love has served as your source to love yourself and others. Were you taught that God is here to punish you? May I suggest to stop thinking that way. It doesn’t serve you. Assess each of these areas and ask yourself if you are getting what you want from each are...

TURN THE OTHER CHEEK

Many of us have heard the biblical scripture that says to “turn the other cheek.” This one has really challenged me. You might say, “Turn the other cheek? What? If someone hit me in the cheek, I’m knocking them out!” I believe what Jesus meant was, if someone hurts you, show them, unconditional love, defend yourself, and show them that the anger cycle stops with you. This doesn’t mean to not hit t...

HOW CAN BAD THINGS HAPPEN TO GOOD PEOPLE?

HOW CAN BAD THINGS HAPPEN TO GOOD PEOPLE
Let me start by categorizing this question into three parts. One, was it really a bad thing? Two, was I, or someone else, personally responsible for it? And, three, was it truly something that happened that was beyond personal responsibility? First, was it really a bad thing? We need to clarify if the situation that happened or is happening is truly “bad.” Maybe it is going to be “good” in the ...

Forgive or Forget

Forgive or Forget
We have all heard forgive and forget, and many times this is very valid. We need to expand on this one a little. Depending on the severity of the action we were resentful about, sometimes we need to forgive and not be so fast to forget. For example, if you left your purse out next to a coworker and that coworker stole your purse, then even though everything was forgiven and made right, don’t leave...

Be Your Best

Be Your Best
Be your best! The main recipe I know of for emotional disaster is to not become what you know you are capable of. Whatever you can be, you must be. Believe in yourself. You can be what you want to be. Break those shackles of inhibition and go after what you want. Aren’t you happiest when you’re growing, accomplishing something, or going after what is important to you? Look, if there is any fear or...

Guard Your Thoughts

Guard Your Thoughts
You must guard your thoughts to get what you want. Your mind is hungry. Your mind goes after whatever stimulus you put in front of it. Garbage in really does equal garbage out! If we feed our minds with negative news, conversations, people, and music, our output becomes negative. My dad always told me, “If you want to soar with the eagles, you cannot hang out with turkeys.” Surround yourself with ...
