A Reason to Smile

A Reason to Smile

You’re perfect but incomplete; Or, made in God’s Image (VIDEO)

All men’s souls are immortal, but the souls of the righteous are immortal and divine. -Socrates

I’m going to do things a little differently today; I made a short video explaining things in more detail on Facebook. Give it a watch or a listen and let me know what you think.

But, since some of you might not be willing or able to listen just now, I am going to write out some of what I covered in the video.

A lot of my articles and coaching  center around the idea of change; changing yourself, changing your life, changing your circumstances. And yet, I frequently make the statement that you’re already perfect, just the way you are.

People ask me all the time how it is you can be perfect, and yet need to change, so that’s why I’ve written this article.

The simple answer is, you don’t NEED to change, but you may want to for reasons I’m going to explain in a minute.

As I mentioned before  Wallace Wattles’ book “The Science Of Getting Rich” was one of Rhonda Byrne’s primary inspirations for The Secret. Mr. Wattles wrote a second book entitled “The Science Of Being Great” which was where I first encountered the idea of being perfect, but incomplete.

The best example of something that is perfect, but incomplete is a baby.
A baby can’t particularly DO anything but lay there and cry, and yet anyone will tell you (especially parents) that there is no more perfect thing in all the world.

So when I say you’re perfect, right now as you are, what I’m really saying is you are exactly who you had to be to get to where you are. You’re just tall enough or short enough, rich enough or poor enough, educated or experienced enough to have all you need to have the life you’ve got.

The thing is, what got you here won’t get you anywhere BUT here; so if you want more out of life you have to make some changes.

I don’t particularly believe we have a set Fate or Destiny as it were, but I do believe God has certain things that God would like to see happen. There are certain lessons we come here to learn, and things we come here to do, but I don’t believe the Divine forces us into anything, only gives us a little push.

You know what it is you are supposed to do: it’s that little voice that is always there, telling you should become a singer, or actor, or go back to school, anything. And a hundred louder voices pop up to say why it’s dumb, or impossible for you to do, but that little voice won’t go away.

That voice is your purpose, your primary lesson in life.

You have everything you need within you to accomplish this goal, all the intelligence, power, and fortitude necessary if you will commit yourself to going after it.

So get after it!

Check out the video when you can, and let me know if there is anything I can do to help you on your way.

You are great, and I love you!
