Follow the Rules or Follow Your Heart?


They told you to follow all the rules and you’d be happy and successful.

You gave it your best only to find yourself far down the road and not as fulfilled as you’d hoped.

What gives? Nowhere in following all those outside rules and prescriptions for your life did they tell you that what fulfills comes from within and flows outwards not the other way around.

Thankfully, you have an internal compass that knows where your bliss lives.

Follow your heart. It knows the way.

Wherever you are on your journey today, remember you are awesome!

Limitless Beings Trapped in Limited Mindsets

We so often think we are powerless when we are anything but.

True, our forms have limits, but that only reminds us we are here to work together.

Our minds, when rightly focused and purposely freed from conditioning, are connected to the consciousness that beats hearts and spins galaxies.

Our mission, should we choose to accept it, is to stop seeing ourselves as this form that lives a few decades, eventually gets sick, and dies; and start identifying our consciousness with the consciousness that underlies all that was, is, and ever will be.

Wherever you are in your journey today, know that you are awesome!

Three Unstoppable Forces

There really are three unstoppable forces in this world. Few would argue that the rising sun and a rushing ocean wave are overwhelming forces of nature that are impossible to stop or defeat.

Yet, add the power of your mind to the equation and many will quickly object. They point out all the times people supposedly had a determined mind and things didn’t pan out. In the simplest way of describing a determined mind, that may be true.

I wanted the promotion. I was determined to get it and I didn’t. I really wanted to go out with that person, but they turned me down. See, a determined mind is easily defeated,

Here’s my definition of a determined mind. It’s a mind that doesn’t let temporary setbacks decide the outcome. It’s a mind that takes whatever comes and turns it into fuel for the big goal. It’s a mind that never gives up and is going to find a way or make a way no matter what.

That kind of mind cannot be stopped. That kind of mind is a force of nature like the sun and the wave. That kind of mind turns defeats into fuel for bigger victories. That kind of mind learns from every experience and is better next time.

You, yes you, have that force-of-nature mind within you any time you want to unleash it to chase your dreams, better your day, or better your world.

The sooner you realize how powerful it is, the sooner you will become unstoppable and unbeatable too.

Wherever you are on your journey today, you are awesome!

Your Mind Focused

It all starts between the ears. Every day, every week, every year, every dream, every achievement; begins by having your mind on point and on your side.

Buddha was quoted in The Dhammapada as saying, “A wrongly directed mind brings greater harm than any enemy; a rightly directed mind brings greater good than any relative or friend.”

Your own experience tells you this true too. So, get your mind focused and pushing you onto your finish line, whatever that is for you right now.

Just in case no one else has reminded you today, you are awesome!

What Adversity Really Is

The reason so few humans are really living their dreams is because they cease and desist at the first sign of challenge.

We must become clear on this point. Adversity, seen through the proper lens, is not a sign of setback or a signal to quit.

For the determined person, adversity is fuel for the fire.

Just in case no one else has reminded you today, you are awesome!
