Lincoln - complaints

 

Thoughts are things.  How we perceive life creates and attracts our reality.

Questions:
Do you enjoy the beauty of roses or complain about their thorns?
Is the glass half full or half empty?
Does the universe always support you?

Are your perceptions accurate or biased because of preferences or expectations?  Do they change moment by moment as you do?

There is a well known story about three men who spent their lives quarrying rocks.  When asked what they were doing, one replied, “Breaking rocks.”  The second said, “Earning a living.”  The third said, “Our team is building a cathedral.”

Which of the three had the most job satisfaction?

“When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.”

Around Minn Donkey rescue

 

One day a farmer’s donkey fell down into a well.  The animal cried piteously for hours as the farmer tried to figure out what to do.  Finally he decided the animal was old, the well needed to be covered up anyway and it just wasn’t worth it to retrieve the donkey.

He invited all his neighbors to come over and help him.  They each grabbed a shovel and began to shovel dirt into the well.  At first, the donkey realized what was happening and cried horribly.  Then, to everyone’s amazement, he quieted down.  A few shovel loads later, the farmer looked down the well, and was astonished at what he saw.

As every shovel of dirt hit his back, the donkey did something amazing.  He would shake it off and take a step up.  As the farmer’s neighbors continued to shovel dirt on top of the animal,  he would shake it off and take a step up.  Pretty soon, everyone was amazed, as the donkey stepped up over the edge of the well and trotted off.

The Moral:
Life is going to shovel dirt on you, all kinds of dirt.
The trick is to shake it off and take a step up.
Each of our troubles is a stepping-stone.
We escape the deepest wells by not quitting and never giving up!
Shake it off and take a step up!

PRESS ON
“Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence.  Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent.  Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb.  Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts.  Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.”
Calvin Coolidge

vison & action

 

With a clear and meaningful vision and purpose comes the motivation, energy and resources to manifest it.  When we are definite and committed to what we want to create we discover the how.  Allow the universe to provide the how, when and where.

Do you have trouble staying motivated, focused, or following through?

With a compelling purpose aligned with your natural essence and desires, those troubles disappear.

Trust the universe to reveal the optimal way to achieve it.  You don’t have to figure it out.  Let intuition guide you.  Just focus on one step at a time.  A to B, B to C, C to D.
(not A to Z).

Once your vision and purpose is true, it resonates deeply in your being, heart and feelings.  The next steps will present themselves, the right people will show up and the necessary resources will come.

Trust, be patient and have faith.  All is well.  Acknowledge the source of all substance (God) and be thankful for all of your blessings.

Having a vision and purpose that expresses your deepest essence and desire propels you forward over any obstacle or challenge.

Take action, step by step and keep moving forward until it is complete.
Be specific with your goals/objectives and action steps.

Ask for divine wisdom, guidance and assistance all along the way.
Do all the good you can every moment in balance and harmony.

Imagine it, feel it and then express it.

Be open to surprises!
