Bet you’re glad you read this story by Jack Canfield…
“My earliest mentor, W. Clement Stone, was once described as an inverse paranoid. Instead of believing the world was plotting to do him harm, he chose to believe the world was plotting to do him good. Instead of seeing every difficult or challenging event as a negative, he saw it for what it could be — something that was meant to enrich him, empower him, or advance his causes.
What an incredibly positive belief! Imagine how much easier it would be to succeed in life if you were constantly expecting the world to support you and bring you opportunity.
Successful people do just that.”
We do that to ourselves regularly.
I’m not good (fill in the word) enough.
We ARE good enough. We are sufficient to the task. Sure we need help and as we take the action the answers are there.
You are needed. Remember these wise words from Helen Keller:
I am only one, but still I am one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something; and because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do something that I can do.
Never tell yourself no
You have the ability.
We would do good to remember Marianne Williamson’s wise words:
We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be?
(read the entire quote here) Make a difference today as you strive to reach your potential. We need your story.
All you can do is all you can do. Do it. Thanks.
Passion makes your day flow. Passion is rocket fuel for your mind. Walking through today can be an adventure or an indenture. Carrying baggage from yesterday ensures you will not reach your stride or fully enjoy the beauty. Ignite your passion each day by giving. Simply give yourself in service doing what you love.
Kevin Koym said it wonderfully when he reminded me that “… the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” (Mark 10:45 NIV)
Keeping up is not enough, you need passion to move ahead and be the servant leader the world needs.
What are you waiting for?
“Forcing yourself to use restricted means is the sort of restraint that liberates invention. It obliges you to make a kind of progress that you can’t even imagine in advance.” – Pablo Picasso
Dare to go for it where you are with what you have. We talk about things/people/places that hold us back. Want to reach new heights? Here is the chance. Action trumps words.
I look forward to hearing of your success.
Ever focus on what you don’t want? Me too. Thus I have not benefited from regular posting here.
I love the growth and learning. The fun. The thrill.
Today is what I share here. Saving up for a future post clogs the pipes (beside ‘some day’ never really arrives).
Last time we will talk about not doing here.
So… Into Linchpin one more time. Can you be indispensable? Seth ask us; Are you indispensable?
Time to be an artist. Thanks Seth.
- Artist are people with a genius for finding a new answer, a new connection, or a new way of getting things done.
- Art, at least as I define it, is the intentional act of using your humanity to create a change in another person.
Have you been scared today? Good for you. Time to take action to grow. Thanks.
Today was an adventure for my daughter’s birthday. The two of us took off this morning seeking treasure at the Dallas Museum of Art and other places downtown. To mix things up we drove to Plano to catch the DART train for the excursion into the city.
I wanted her perspective on the day so I asked her to tweet. These tweets and (really) listening to her questions set the stage for our grand adventure. She was excited buying the day passes at the rail station and boarding the Red Line. It was interesting observing what she took pictures of as we traveled from station to station. As we clanged along it was also fun imaging we were inside looking out in the spaces we passed through. We had sneak-peeks from the backsides of the structures to the activity out front.
Dallas Museum of Art was a huge perspective shift watching her move from room to room looking at the pieces and reading about them.
Doing things differently today added new perspective for the two of us. My desire is to make it a habit.
What’s your perspective?

“But a man who doesn’t dream is like a man who doesn’t sweat, he stores up allot of poison.”
Judge Cool taught me this today in The Grass Harp.
No dreams = poison
Sounds like the person you want to avoid (being or being around).
