Success – Happiness – and, Love
What do these three concepts — Success, Happiness, and Love — have in common?
Yes, I agree — we want all three.
They can’t be bought with money, they can’t be chased down, they won’t magically waltz into our lives — and, if found, they can’t be captured and bound.
Yet, what is the most important facet of these three gems?
We must create them.
Yep, it’s that simple — to say; much harder To Do.
The secret, though, is just that — We Must Do.
You ask, “Where do we begin?”
I say, “Let’s take a flying leap of faith into the future we desire.”
Eyes Wide Open
I was going to say, “Now, close your eyes…” but, wait, don’t do that, not quite yet. Keep reading, first.
When you do close your eyes, imagine the world of your dreams. It’s your dream — paint it your way — in vivid colors for some and in more subtle hues for others. Once the Background is in place, set all of the Things where they belong — and, then, for the most important feature of your dream, invite the People with whom you want to share your life.
Whatever the mind can conceive, it can believe and achieve.
Do you believe?
You conceived it.
If you believe, how can “IT” be achieved?
The secret is to focus on small steps.
Mile by Mile it’s a Trial
Yard by Yard it’s Hard
Inch by Inch it’s a Cinch
A month ago, I got tired of my Wranglers® being tight. So I made an appointment to visit a Nutritionist. She explained away some long-held mysteries about food and “we” formulated a Plan. My next session with her was scheduled for a month away.
Silly me, for the first three weeks, I cleaned the cupboards of unhealthy food — but, pretty much kept doing what I’ve always done. And, I got the same results that I always have. Purest definition of Insanity, right?
Doing the same things over and over again, expecting a different result.
I thought, “How hard can this be? I’m a smart guy (more thinking). Surely my mind can bend the rules of physics into submission!” Nope, didn’t work. So, I went to Target and bought a Digital Scale.
To manage, we must measure.
So, now, I’m making the pounds come off ounces at a time.
Baby steps, my dear.
For the scholars among us, they have rushed ahead and spoiled my conclusion — because, the Good Book talks about these three — Faith, Hope, and Charity.
Same song, second verse.
We must create — and, then live — them.
These three — and, the greatest of them is Love.
