Have a Magnificent Day!

Have a Magnificent Day!

The Seed

posted by The MEGA Coach

The SeedA successful businessman was growing old and knew it was time to choose a successor to take over the business.  Instead of choosing one of his Directors or his children, he decided to do something different.

He gathered the young executives in his company.  He said, “It is time for me to step down and choose the next CEO.  I have decided to choose one of you. ”

The executives were shocked.  The boss continued “I am going to give each one of you a SEED today – one special SEED.  I want you to plant it, water it, and come back one year from today with what you have grown from the seed I have given you.  I will then judge the plants that you bring, and the one I choose will be the next CEO.”

One man, Jim, went home and excitedly told his wife the story.  She got a pot, soil and helped plant the seed.

Every day, he’d water it and watch to see if it had grown.

After a few weeks, the executives began to talk about their seeds and the plants that were beginning to grow.   Jim kept checking his seed, but nothing ever grew.  Three weeks, four weeks, five weeks went by, still nothing.

By now, others were talking about their plants, but Jim didn’t have a plant and he felt like a failure.  Six months went by – nothing.  Jim knew he killed his seed.  Everyone had plants and trees…he had nothing.  Jim didn’t say anything to his colleagues, however.  He just kept watering and fertilizing the soil – He so wanted the seed to grow.

A year went by and all the executives brought their plants to the CEO for inspection.  Jim told his wife that he wasn’t going to take an empty pot.  But she asked him to be honest about what happened.  Jim felt sick to his stomach, it was going to be the most embarrassing moment of his life, but he knew his wife was right.  He took his empty pot to the board room.  When Jim arrived, he was amazed at the variety of plants grown by the other executives.

They were beautiful — in all shapes and sizes.  Jim put his empty pot on the floor and many of his colleagues laughed, a few felt sorry for him!

When the CEO arrived, he greeted his executives.  Jim tried to hide in the back.  “My, what great plants, trees, and flowers you have grown,” said the CEO.  “Today one of you will be appointed the next CEO!”

All of a sudden, the CEO saw Jim at the back of the room with his empty pot and ordered Jim to come forward.  Jim was terrified.  He thought, “The CEO knows I’m a failure!  Maybe he will have me fired!”

When Jim got to the front, the CEO announced, “Behold your next Chief Executive Officer!  His name is Jim!”

Jim couldn’t believe it.  Jim couldn’t even grow his seed.  “How could he be the new CEO?” the others said.

Then the CEO said, “One year ago today, I gave everyone in this room a seed.  I told you to take the seed, plant it, water it, and bring it back to me today.  But I gave you all boiled seeds; they were dead – it was not possible for them to grow.  All of you, except Jim, have brought me trees and plants and flowers.  When you realized that the seed would not grow, you substituted another seed for the one I gave you.  Jim was the only one with the courage and honesty to bring me a pot with my seed in it.  Therefore, he is the one who will be the new CEO!”

Dare To Be Different

You are totally unique.
There is no one else exactly like you or who can express themselves the way you do.

You have special gifts and talents no one else has on the planet.
You are one of a kind and irreplaceable.

Give yourself permission to be the unique expression you are.
Let go and allow yourself to be the way you naturally are.

What is your heroic mission?
What is your vision and purpose for your life?

It is not how big your dream is that matters.
It is how big your heart is in whatever dream you choose.

So many people want to fit in, to be liked and to be approved of.
Why not give yourself your own approval with the power of self acknowledgement?

Take a good look in the mirror.  Use your heart as your eyes to acknowledge the truth about you and what you see.  Self-talk and self acknowledgement are powerful catalysts for inspiration and transformation.

I am a child of the universe.
I am healthy, whole and complete.
I am eternal, universal, immortal and infinite and what I am is beautiful.

I am unlimited potential and energy.
I am unconditionally loving, joyous and abundant.
I am the Source of my life, I am a creator.

Start to acknowledge yourself for your wonderful qualities every day.
Acknowledge the people around you and make their day brighter.

You are a light to this world.

A Reason, A Season or A Lifetime

posted by The MEGA Coach

friends 2“People come into our life for a reason, a season or a lifetime.”

The most important person to be friends with is yourself.  Kindness is a language that everyone understands.  We all want to be treated with love, kindness, sincerity and respect whether it is a personal or business relationship.  When these qualities are absent, harmony and balance are lost and trouble is close at hand.

It is wonderful and fun when relationships are going well and developing nicely.  When challenges arise is the real test of a person’s character and principles.  These moments reveal the nature of our patterns of behavior.  When important issues come up, we usually revert to our oldest and most basic patterns.  These moments require honesty and openness.

When survival issues are at stake such as money, sex, religion and power, people do the strangest things to maintain their control or dominance.  We humans can be very harsh to win or get what we want.  It is sad, because what truly matters is love, friendship and kindness.  All of the money, sex, power and material possessions we accumulate cannot be taken with us.  They do not keep us warm at night or truly comfort our heart and soul.

Some people come into our life for a reason to accomplish something or for a short lesson.  A singular moment or experience can be so profound it affects our whole life and we remember it forever.  Lessons and trials take many forms.

Some people come into our life for a season and the time can be special, powerful and wonderful.  It is not always easy to let these people go when the time is complete.  It is important to allow people to come and go appropriately into our life without attempting to hold on or control the relationship or experience.  If it is meant to be long term or last forever, the relationship will let us know.

Some people come into your life for a lifetime and these are the “keepers.“  They share our lives.  A real friend shows love, kindness and compassion and does not judge.  Friends are unconditional, care and always want our best.  Real friends are God’s blessings!  They are a special gift.  Be a friend.

The tricky part is to know whether a person or friend is in your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime.  Regardless of how long they are in your life for, be sure to give them the best you have every moment.  There is always some blessings, benefit or lesson gained.  Acknowledge it and be thankful.

“People are the greatest resource in the world!”

You can have whatever you want without violating the rights of others.  So keep your awareness burning brightly.  Do your best to live in the moment from your heart and intuition and have fun!

blessings,

The World Depends On You!

posted by The MEGA Coach

manifest abundanceLife is an amazing adventure.  We are here to actualize our creative, divine potential.  Challenges times test our integrity and commitment to proper principles.  It is easier to feel good and make good choices when things are going well.  It is when we are under pressure our true character reveals itself.

From The I Ching or Book of Changes by Brian Browne Walker:
“In a very real sense the progress of the world depends upon your progress as an individual now.  Concentrate, then, on examining and correcting your thoughts, attitudes and actions.  Improve yourself into the kind of person you yourself would follow wholeheartedly and without hesitation.  Learn to accept the natural progress that occurs when you act in harmony with proper principles and seek no progress at the expense of those principles.”

We can aspire to be the best person we can be.  In the end, no amount of wealth or possessions can determine the quality of one’s character or the quality of one’s life.

Feeling good is our natural state unless we are out of alignment with our truth and essence.
I Am calm, peaceful, well and whole.”

Life is an incredible journey to our divine destiny.  It is a process to discover our deepest truth and live it.  Every moment is designed to give us exactly what we need for our optimal growth.  This moment is exactly the way it is supposed to be.  We create our reality and make the choices that determine our outcomes and experiences.  We have free will and free choice.

Being present and embracing the opportunity of the moment gives the greatest potential for growth and transformation.  Life is not always easy and the lessons we receive can be challenging.  Usually the most important ones are.  When we allow life to be the way it is, we empower our self to discover truth.

Sometimes it appears that everything is falling apart.  Yet, in that very moment, the universe is still supporting our greatest growth.  The way out is in.  Let go, take a few breaths, go for a walk in nature, feel the sun on your face.  The greater the challenge, the greater the opportunity.  The bigger the risk, the bigger the reward.

Life and the Creative Force is guiding us, calling to us to grow, improve and succeed.
One of the wisest things we can do is allow the moment to be the way it is.

blessings,
:) Lee
