Mistakes are inevitable.  It is what we do with them after we make them that define our successes or something less desirable.  One way to deal with mistakes is to be totally honest with others about them and don’t be so hard on ourselves when we make them.  This simple rule has personally worked for me and propelled me to heights I never imagined.

This Week’s Quote
“Success Intelligence includes the wisdom to avoid making unnecessary mistakes and also the courage to accept the necessary education when mistakes are made.  Mistakes are not “good” per se, but everyone can learn to make good use of them.  Hence, a good relationship is one in which both parties are good at honest apologies, genuine forgiveness, and a willingness to learn from mistakes.”  Success Intelligence(Robert Holden, psychologist, author, and broadcaster, who works in the field of positive psychology and well-being)

Stop. Think. Learn. Ask yourself “what if” instead of “why.”  When we do this, we discover the beauty and grace of a mind filled with potential instead of one filled limits.

““The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed.” Albert Einstein

It’s simple.  It really is.  To experience success and happiness in achieving a personal goal or achievement, you first have to dream up a goal.  Always remember this: first you think it, and then you do it.

It is important to set our goals as high as possible.  The higher, the better.  When we do this, we allow the universe to supply what we need at just the right time.  We may not achieve all of these goals, but just think of the celebration when we do!

This Week’s Quote
“The greater danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short; but in setting our aim too low, and achieving our mark.” Michelangelo (Italian sculptor, painter, architect & poet, considered the creator of the Renaissance, 1475-1564)

Sometimes we have limiting beliefs about how things are the way they are.  When we are younger, we often believe we have all the answers to everything.  However, when we accept that we can learn from others,  our minds open to new possibilities.

Relax and take a deep breath. Don’t take life so serious. Don’t take your own opinions and beliefs so seriously either. For what we believed with unconditional certainty yesterday only proves to be untruths tomorrow.  Check out this awesome video.

When I was a teenager, someone taught me the phrase Fake it ‘til you make it.  Sometimes, if you get the body to do what you want, the mind will follow.  You’ll DO it, and then you’ll FEEL it.  Simple, huh?

There is a blessing in every challenge you face.  When you fight and curse them, you block the flow of positive energy they are offering.  If instead you find the blessing that they contain, you are rewarded with healing, positive and supportive energy.  Bill, don’t be a fighter, be a “blesser”!

Bill, imagine sitting on a beach with a nice cool breeze in your face.  You see a huge cargo ship on the horizon, but this is no ordinary ship.  This ship contains everything you could ever desire in your lifetime.  The only problem is that ship doesn’t know where to deliver your “goods.”  For it to dock near you, all you have to do is to focus on your goals, think positive thoughts, trust your gut, and take decisive action every day.  Bill, I think I see the ship turning and heading your way.

Take a risk.  Risk failing, risk being laughed at, risk getting in hot water, and risk being hurt or scared.  Know that you were created to create.  Open yourself to the possibility!
