5 Saturday Affirmations for May 21, 2022

Hello, fellow affirmers!

Thank you for your patience during my posting drought these past few weeks. My day job has been over-the-top busy. I hope you and those important to you are thriving! I’m back with five affirmations for this Saturday.

I also want to share that I’m beginning work on a new audio book that will also be available in print. The working title has been the tagline of the TAS platform for the past year – Put Your Mind on Your Side.

I’ll be sharing details and snippets as the work progresses.

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

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!

Follow Your Heart

Follow your heart. It knows the way.

There’s a part within you that has the roadmap and the plan to reach your dreams.

Be still. Hear its voice. Follow its guidance.

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

Feed Your Dreams

Feed your dreams. Starve your doubts.
~Ray Davis

I coined this quote about 10 years ago. Since, it’s showed up on t-shirts, quotes sites, and at least one book that I know of.

The quote reflects a choice we have a thousand times a day.

Are we going to go down the dark and negative road of our self-doubt or will we choose to believe in our dreams?

We don’t make this decision just in one big moment. We make it over and over along on our path and each choice slowly turns our trajectory toward our dreams or our doubts.

Which will you choose today?

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

Follow Your Bliss Stories #1 – How Jeff Probst Got Survivor

The late great mythologist Joseph Campbell spoke of a concept he described as following your bliss. Campbell had recognized a pattern in myths from around the world that he outlined in a functional path he termed “The Hero’s Journey.”

This pattern is seen in most great stories throughout time and culture. Filmmaker George Lucas drew upon his love of this concept in creating Star Wars.

The key is this. The hero in the story – your story – is you. We’re all on the hero’s journey. It’s not an experience reserved for the few. It’s the very essence of why each and every one of us is here.

You often hear elements of the story when people who “hit it big” describe the tale of how it happened. Here survivor host and executive producer Jeff Probst describes how he willed himself to host this wild new show concept – Survivor. His story has many of the classic elements. He even mentions the Campbell-like aspects of his journey.

 

In case no one else reminds you today, you are awesome!
