You’re in a One-Person Race – Day 246 of 365 Days to a Better You

There’s only one person you’re accountable for being – that’s you. As Oscar Wilde once said, “Be yourself. Everyone else is taken.” Today I share a brief story from a great book by author Alan Cohen, The Dragon Doesn’t Live Here Anymore.

Rock the start to the new week!

I am the Founder of The Affirmation Spot, author of Annuanki Awakening, and co-founder of 6 Sense Media. My latest books are the Anunnaki Awakening: Revelation (Book 1 of a trilogy) and The Power to Be You: 417 Daily Thoughts and Affirmations for Empowerment. I have written prolifically on the topics of personal development and human potential for many years. By day, I write sales training for Fortune 100 company. I began studying affirmations and positive thinking after a life-threatening illness at 25. My thirst for self-improvement led him to read the writings of Joseph Campbell, Wayne Dyer, Deepak Chopra, Neale Donald Walsch, and many other luminaries in the fields of mythology and motivation. Over time, I have melded these ideas into my own philosophy on self-development. I have written, recorded, and used affirmations and other tools throughout that time to improve my own life and I have a passion for helping other reach for their goals and dreams.

  1. Excellent, I loved the end the best, but enjoyed it all. I’ve often, not always, but enough, usually during a debate of sorts … said to someone “what do you think the last thought you will think will be upon your last moments in this life?” “Do you think it will be about money/wealth, how many material things you’ve acquired?” And I follow-up by saying, please don’t answer me, it’s not a question for me, it’s a question for you … the answer belongs to you. Personally I remind myself each day that I have a few regrets – one cannot leave this life with regrets … but one also can’t leave this life believing that every single thing they wish for, want to do or strive to do will be achieved … if you set your bar higher than may be possible, you can’t posisble achieve it. So while there are many things I’ve yet to do, experience or partake in, a few regrets that I know I’m capable of doing therefore dispelling the reget – if I can achieve but a few and live an authentic life, one full of love, one sharing love, one spreading love, one regarding all that lives, not merely our own species, then while I might not have achieved all I believe I should or wish to – I feel confident that I – “we” – will be at peace.

    Funny, the mention of sports and those of that sort. That’s always been a “shake my head” for me. I’ve never understood how or why people show so much love, awe, regard and respect to people playing sports, actors and more. Sure, their talent deserves to be recognized, but to me … no more than anyone else’s talents albiet much different.

    Loved the video, thank you for sharing it.
