Quote from Simon Sinek TED Talk – Start with Your Why

“There are leaders and there are those who lead. Leaders hold a position of power or authority, but those who lead inspire us. Whether they’re individuals or organizations, we follow those who lead not because we have to, but because we want to. We follow those who lead, not for them, but for ourselves.” ~ Simon Sinek

Change in Feeling – Neville Goddard Quote

Thoughts are the vehicle of our dreams, but feelings are the fuel for the vehicle. We are emotional beings and our feelings drive us to do powerful things -some positive and some negative. If we can harness the power of our feelings in a positive way, Goddard is saying we can literally change our destiny.

A change in feeling is a change in destiny.

My 15 Favorite Albert Einstein Quotes

Today’s Affirmation:

When I am open to bigger possibilities, I am open to bigger outcomes!

Many think of Albert Einstein as that wild-haired mathematician, physicist, smartest guy of all-time, or the E=MC2 guy. Today many have forgotten that he was also a great thinker, philosopher, statesmen, and advocate for humanity in his time.

His ideas led to massive advances in many fields, including warfare and weaponry – the atomic bomb. He was keenly aware of the responsibility humanity had to use his genius – our genius – wisely.

He had is flaws and his personal problems like the rest of us. To me, that only makes him more human and his genius more approachable.

Today I am sharing my 15 favorite Albert Einstein quotes. Some of them will not be new to you. I hope a few of them will provide new insights into the man and into yourself.

  1. “There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.”
  2. “Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds.”
  3. “Logic will get you from A to Z; imagination will get you everywhere.”
  4. “Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new.”
  5. “I speak to everyone the same way, whether he is the garbage man or the president of a university.”
  6. “Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one.”
  7. “Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.”
  8. “Science without religion is lame. Religion without science is blind.”
  9. “I have no special talents. I am only passionately curious.”
  10. “Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. The important thing is to not stop questioning.”
  11. “The world as we have created it is a process of our thinking. It cannot be changed without changing our thinking.”
  12. “I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones.”
  13. “In the middle of difficulty, lies opportunity.”
  14. “Everything must be made as simple as possible, but not simpler.”

Finally, Einstein wrote:

“A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.”

17 Quotes About the Future

 

Today’s Affirmation:
The past is the past! My direction is forward, not back!

The astronautWe humans often have such pessimism about the future and about ourselves. That pessimism chains us to old nightmares that keep repeating. We mourn at sunsets and feel helpless to change the momentum of our individual and collective existence.

But, what if we chose to see sunset as beginnings rather than endings? What if we chose to walk away from certainty that chains us to the past and trade it for the uncertainty where possibility and potential live?

Today I am posting 17 quotes focused on helping you to positively focus on the future. While you cannot underestimate the importance of living fully in the now, I believe it is important to create a positive expectation for the future. See new horizons for yourself and for humanity. Too often, our popular media portrays a dark and dangerous future. This probably mirrors the human mental default setting.

It takes work to overcome that and see a bright and positive future. However, we must if we are to live in that future. The future is always a mystery, but never an accident. I hope these quotes will help you prepare for and paint a colorful and empowering future. I am certain you will find at least one quote, if not several, that fire your visions for peaceful, positive, and productive future.

  1. “I’m choosing happiness over suffering, I know I am. I’m making space for the unknown future to fill up my life with yet-to-come surprises.”~ Elizabeth Gilbert
  2. “The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.”~ Eleanor Roosevelt
  3. “The best way to predict the future is to event it.”~ Alan Kay
  4. “The minute you alter your perception of yourself and your future, both you and your future begin to change.”~ Marilee Zdenek
  5. “And when the future hinges on the next words that are said, don’t let logic interfere. Believe in your heart instead.”~ Philip Robison
  6. “You keep unconsciously becoming your past, until you consciously choose to become your new future.”~ Ray Davis
  7. “He who controls the present, controls the past. He who controls the past, controls the future.”~ George Orwell
  8. “The future belongs to the risk-takers, not the comfort-seekers.”~ Brian Tracy
  9. “We can become inspired to shape a higher, more ideal future, and when we do, miracles happen.”~ James Redfield
  10. “The future starts today, not tomorrow.”~ Pope John Paul II
  11. “The visions we offer our children shape the future. It matters what those visions are. Often they become self-fulfilling prophecies. Dreams are maps.”~ Carl Sagan
  12. “Take comfort in the future. We worry about what will become of us. Our lives are chaotic like a wave rushing to shore. But every single drop of water in that wave winds up precisely where it belongs, and so do we.”~ Ray Davis
  13. “The past is always tense, the future perfect.”~ Zadie Smith
  14. “You can build the future out of anything. A scrap, a flicker. The desire to go forward, slowly, one foot at a time.”~ Lauren Oliver
  15. “The only limit to our realization of tomorrow will be our doubts of today. Let us move forward with strong and active faith.”~ Franklin D. Roosevelt
  16. “Let go of the past and go for the future. Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you imagined.”~ Henry David Thoreau
  17. “Your future is only as bright as your mind is open.”~ Rich Wilkins

We are capable of amazing futures, even as we tend to the present. Those futures are born in individual minds and the collective mind, and must be, if we are see them manifest in our world.

Follow your bliss. Experience your bliss. Become your bliss.

The Visionary – Affirmations and Original Quotes

Today’s Thought:

“Leaders are visionaries with a poorly developed sense of fear, and no concept of the odds against them. They make the impossible happen.”
~ Robert Jarvik

Where would a society be without its visionaries? The French novelist and philosopher Anais Nin once said, “Societies in decline have no use for visionaries.” That is a succinct measure of a society, its mindset, and its direction. How does our society see visionaries? How do YOU see visionaries?

Visionaries are those intrepid souls who risk the wrath of their own tribe to push the tribe forward. They challenge convention and rewrite the possible. The visionary works without a tightrope and is willing to be called heretic, sinner, and outcast all for the hope of bettering the lives of the children and grandchildren of the people casting them into the abyss.

A true visionary is authentically living what Joseph Campbell once called “The Hero’s Journey”. The concepts of the visionary and hero have long intrigued me. Over the past few years, I have tweeted many brief thoughts about these two kinds of people. I decided it was time to compile them. Today’s post focuses on the visionary. I will publish another soon focused on the hero.

My hope is that you will see some of yourself in these descriptions. At the very least, I hope you will no longer count yourself among those who fail to see in the moment the remarkable service these people are doing for us all.

I believe we were all born visionaries and conditioned to be less. May these affirmations and statements reawaken the visionary in you.

  31. The truth already set you free. Now its time for your paradigms to catch up with that fact.

    unquestioned is a house of cards. The visionary questions.
