Being Responsible

posted by The MEGA Coach

You are the source of your life.
You are the source of your beliefs, values, actions and results.

This also equates with the fact that you are totally responsible for your life and choices.  Often, life presents itself differently than we would like…..things happen.
This could be in your personal relationships, health, home, financial situation, career, etc.  Life is full of changes and outcomes.  It comes in many shapes and sizes.

Yet always, life actually is supporting you for your highest growth or success.
Your present attitude, perceptions, emotions or situation do not always reflect this truth.

It requires a strong, honest and courageous person to not take things personally.  It requires clarity, center and balance to observe the reality of truth in the moment.  It requires a higher perspective to not be caught up in the drama.

You can take responsibility for your life and for your choices and circumstances.
Or you can complain, criticize or blame others because things are not the way you want.

If a situation is challenging, or seems negative, complaining, blaming or hurting others only makes it worse.  It does not change the source of the problem or create a solution.

The best thing to do when in conflict is to stop, detach and let go.
The first one to peace always wins.

If there is a problem with someone in your life, the best thing you can do is to have a sincere, compassionate conversation with them and share your feelings and truth with the intention to clear up and misconceptions.

At the core of every person is their natural, pure, good essence.
Trust this reality, speak to this reality and always see their higher self.

Give peace a chance.
Be the first to create peace and others may just follow.

Who Are Your Role Models?

posted by The MEGA Coach

The people you spend the most time with greatly impact your life. 
They shape your beliefs, values and color your world.
It is important to have good role models who are examples of proper principles.

Who do you learn from?
Who do you spend your time with?
Do they inspire and uplift you?
Are they good examples of kindness, communication, health & wealth?

I was blessed to have a wonderful Grandma & Grandpa.
They were always there as I was growing up.
They never missed a birthday or a holiday or special occasion.
Their love was the gift that kept on giving.

My Grandpa Bob lived until I was in my twenties and taught me very important lessons.  I still remember when I was a young child, he would sit me on his lap and share how important it is to be honest and have integrity.  He said that money, positions and titles come and go, but when you lose your name, your reputation and integrity it is almost impossible to get it back.  Then he always told me, ‘I love you and want the best for you.”

I have remembered his words and this lesson all of my life.  There were a few times that I did not heed his good advice and I made my life difficult, but I did whatever I had to do to correct my mistakes and earn people’s trust back.  It was very hard to do and I am thankful that I learned this lesson.  Grandpa was a very good, decent, honorable and impeccable man. 

Grandma Yvette, was also very special.  She lived to 101 and 10 months and passed away a few years ago.  I was blessed to have her in my life for my first 50 years, a very rare blessings!  I never heard Grandma raise her voice in anger or upset for my entire life.  She always looked to help others.  She was kind, caring, sensitive and giving.  She was always looking to do good.  She was a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother.  She was an amazing person.  The world is a better place because she lived.  Grandma is one of my greatest teachers and mentors.

Grandma had an expression that no matter how bad life was she would say, “Darling, it’s for the best.  You’ll see it is for the best!”  As time went on I realized that she is correct.  Every delay turns out for my good.  Every situation, no matter how painful it is contains a gift within it.  Every cloud has a silver lining.

Take the opportunity to acknowledge, recognize and appreciate your role models.
Let them know how you feel about them because they make this world, your world a better place.

Guidelines to Enlightenment & Success

posted by The MEGA Coach

 

From the Teachings of Roy Eugene Davis:

The thoughts you habitually think, your mental attitudes and emotional states, reactions to events, personal relationships and actions are chosen by you.  How you think and behave determines your existing circumstances and those you will experience in the near and distant future.  If you want any aspect of your life to be improved, you have only to exercise your freedom of choice and decisively act in accord with your choices.

Choose to be emotionally mature.  Assume responsibility for your thoughts, actions and circumstances.  Refuse to allow mental confusion, emotional unrest or psychological conflicts to dominate your awareness.  Do not let debilitating habits dissipate your vital forces, weaken your health, diminish your financial (or other) resources, mar worthwhile relationships or interfere with the efficient accomplishments of your meaningful purposes.

Be optimistic, cheerful and calmly energetic.  Optimistic people are always healthier, happier, more successful and live longer than people who are pessimistic.  Cultivate only wholesome, life-enhancing thoughts, feelings, behaviors and relationships.  Be aware of your true nature in relationship to the Infinite.  Nurture awareness of the presence of God within and around you.  Assume and express the characteristics and qualities you want to have.

“Remember that you belong to no one, and no one belongs to you.  Reflect that some day you will have to leave this world, so make the acquaintance of God now.  It is only because of delusion that you perceive yourself as a physical body.  Meditate unceasingly to realize your real, divine nature.”

True Power and True Greatness

posted by The MEGA Coach

From The I Ching, by Brian Browne Walker

 

The Power of the Great.

To achieve true power and true greatness one must be in harmony with what is right.

False power and false greatness can be seen all around us in the world.
Through egotistical and aggressive manipulations many people obtain a temporary position of influence.  The I Ching teaches us a different way of acquiring and using power, one that leads to true greatness and enduring influence.  The way of the Sage (God) unites power with modesty, justice, gentleness and equanimity.

The I Ching counsels us not to misuse our strength by judging, condemning, punishing or dismissing others.  It advises reticence in speech and action: more often than not, the truly superior person relies on stillness and nonaction, allowing inner truth to penetrate gently to the heart of difficulties.  The I Ching also cautions us to wait patiently for the appropriate time for speech or action.  Power can make us eager, but eagerness unbalances and leads us into trouble.  By listening carefully and patiently to the Sage we know when to move ahead, when to wait and when to retreat.

In the end, true greatness comes only to those in whom strength and proper principles are firmly united.  If you follow the Sage and persevere steadfastly in what is correct, you will inherit the power of the great.

 

“In life we cannot always do great things.  But we can do small things with great love.”

 

“Kindness is a language that we all can understand.
Even the blind can see it and the deaf can hear it.”
