Think Daily Messages
It has been my observation that people who are sad, depressed and have little energy, are people that have no sense of purpose. They have no big goals, no passions, and no purpose outside themselves.
Having something that is important to you, a mission, a reason to be, that you go for every day, fills holes in your soul and spirit, and gives you energy to chase away worry, fear and self-pity.
How about you?
The trust of the innocent is the liars most useful tool. People who trust everyone are open to deceit.
But people who trust no one are closed to beautiful and productive relationships and love.
I think we need to trust most people, and lightly scan for those we can’t.
And don’t deal fractionally, with those you can’t trust fully.
I came across this quote by a Twyla Tharp –
“Generosity is luck going in the opposite direction. If you’re generous to someone, if you do something to help him out, you are in effect making him lucky. This is important. It’s like inviting yourself into a community of good fortune.”
How cool! Give good luck away.
How about today?
If you like and respect yourself, you’ll have self-confidence. When setbacks come, you won’t allow them to knock you down, and you’ll keep going. When you keep going, you will succeed one day.
If you have low self-esteem, you will take setbacks personally and allow them to stop you. When you stop, you can’t win.
Appreciate the great qualities you have and treat yourself with respect. Get away from people who tell you that you can’t, and that knock you down.
Strong and healthy self-esteem is like oxygen to your success.
Keene New Hampshire recently got a $500,000 bomb-proof vehicle from the Federal Government. On their application, they cited a risk of terrorism at their pumpkin festival. A Keene New Hampshire official admitted that they were not worried about terrorism at their pumpkin festival or elsewhere, but “that’s what you have to put on the application to get it approved,” and “what guy doesn’t want to drive around in one of these things.”
The Federal Government is militarizing local police forces with 7 billion dollars of un-needed equipment.
Do you see anything wrong with that?
If we don’t have something to pursue, a goal to go after, or a project to work on, we stay inside our personal borders and begin to live in a vacuum, our selves wearing away with worries, troubles, fears and self-pity.
Find something bigger than yourself; often something that involves helping other people, and feel your inner energy come alive again.
I was near a TV playing and I couldn’t help but take note of the content of the show and the commercials. Many commercials were for things we shouldn’t eat, drugs we shouldn’t take, personal injury lawyers, and so on. The show itself exhibited bad behavior and ethics all the way around.
It may only seem unusual to the majority who are the conformists, but I think it’s a good idea to think for yourself and take your own path.
