As we move through life it is important to set goals for yourself.
Without a goal, you are aimlessly moving through life, working merely for the status quo.
God has designed us for lives that are filled with grace, blessings and love.
Each day it is important to remind yourselves of the goals for the day. I like to do this when I wake up. Even the smallest goal of accomplishing five items on my to-do list feels good. When you consistently set and accomplish manageable goals, you get closer to fulfilling larger scale goals. This is a process that if practiced can lead to major, life changing results!
If there is something in your life you want to change you NEED a goal. You need to remind yourself daily of this goal, visualize how you will feel once you have accomplished this and just keep putting all the positive energy you can behind your efforts.
It is amazing how small mindset changes can alter your lifes direction.
I urge you all to sit down and contemplate a list of short term and long term goals.
Beside each, think of ways you can work towards accomplishing these items each and everyday.
Remember, setbacks are part of life - do not be too harsh on yourself. Just keep propelling yourself in the right direction.
I recently wanted to find a publisher to re-publish my book, Calling All Angels. I had self published it and did not get the result I had hoped for. So I hired an assistant who helped me reach out to publishers across the US and before we knew it, we found someone. Now, I am weeks away from a NEW version of my book and I am very satisfied I was able to check off this goal on my list. Hiring someone to help me was the key to my success in accomplishing this - had I not taken that step, I may not have gotten my desired result.
I hope this inspires you to keep achieving!
Challenges, hardships and conflict are a part of everyone's daily existence. How you handle these situations is what is important. Instead of fearing karma, face things with grace. Grace is the opposite of karma.
We always hear, what you say and do comes back to you in some form. Instead of fearing karma for the mistakes you've made, You can live with grace and show graciousness to others in all situations.
This may be difficult at first. Your human tendency is to react emotionally regardless of whether it is a positive or negative emotion. Facing life with graciousness in mind means setting aside your emotional reaction and focusing on peace and forgiveness. Graciousness embodies your attitude of forgiveness, kindness and positivety.
Graciousness is acceptance of others regardless of their attitude.
I encourage you all to embrace this way of life and promote a more peaceful world.
I would like to write a new book just on the word peace. And what comes to me is, is there peace at any price? We will discuss this thought next week.
