I like being at peace with others. I am not mad at or really
irritated by anyone and do not harbor
feelings of animosity towards anyone. Life is so much easier when we don’t go
wild over insignificant bullshit or as Bogie put it in Casablanca, “It doesn’t take much to see that the problems of three
little people don’t amount to a hill of beans in this crazy world.” So I
do not spend too much time mulling over crap, because I want to relax and be in
a good state of mind all the time.
And don’t forget about the line at the grocery store—it’s
the same as the line of life. In both cases, when you get to the cashier, you
gotta’ settle up the score with whoever the cashier is. Make sure you got
enough chips on the table to glide on through and be remembered as a GOB! As
for me, I do not want to depart encumbered by hate so I accept people as they
are and move on with life! Don’t forget “LIFE IS GOOD” and hopefully, so are
the after thoughts of folks who know you! So if you have little PM’s going on
with others, don’t forget what Bogie said.
GOB? Good old boy OR Good old broad. And in today’s world,
YOU decide which one you are.
From time to time, you may want to look here for some refreshment of thoughts.
AFFIRMATION FOR WINNERS
No longer do I accept any form of limitation whatsoever! Right NOW, I drop from my mind all negative, limiting thoughts and ideas.
I affirm that today I am happy, prosperous and successful. I am moving into this day with a marvelous new sense of direction!
Today--is a great day!
IT WILL BE DONE—I’LL DO IT
I can overcome obstacles, conditions and situations.
I am innovative, creative and unique.
I give excellent service and do what I say I’ll do.
I control my life and my time—I say “NO” often.
I follow through with others I depend on.
I have specific goals and am committed to them.
I will deliver when called upon.
RIGHT NOW I ACCEPT ONLY THE BEST! I KNOW THAT AS I COMMUNE QUIETLY WITH INFINITE INTELLIGENCE WITHIN, VITAL NEW AND EXCITING IDEAS COME TO ME.
FEAR IS ERASED AND I AM FREE TO MOVE FORWARD IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION TO ATTAIN WHAT I DESIRE. MY ATTENTION IS NOW PLACED ENTIRELY UPON REACHING THAT GOAL. I MAKE IT MY OWN! I AM GRATEFUL FOR THIS NEW EXPERIENCE IN MY LIFE, WHICH I NOW ACCEPT!
Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back; Always ineffectiveness! So whatever you can do or dream you can: Begin it! Boldness has Power, Genius and Magic in it!
BEGIN IT NOW!!!!!
I eliminate every negative thought and feeling from my mind and I AFFIRM that this day is a wonderful, rewarding one in every way! I know that Life is always 100% for me when I accept that it is, and I do so right now. TODAY IS A GOOD DAY!
In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer!
SMOOTH SEAS DO NOT MAKE SKILLFUL SAILORS
YOU ARE THE CAUSE OF EVERYTHING THAT HAPPENS TO YOU
BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU CAUSE!
Don’t be afraid to fail
Life is not a spelling bee, where one mistake wipes out all that we have done right!
It isn’t the burdens of today that drive men mad. It is the regrets over yesterday and the fear of tomorrow. Regret and Fear are twin thieves who rob us of today!
Today I recognize that I must give priority to my goals! I remove anything that might keep my goals from me. I CHOOSE to forgive the past and accept the present. I know that the universe is always available to assist me and that the things I need are coming to me right now. As I COMMIT myself and concentrate my thoughts on my true purpose, I bring unlimited power to work for me. I am ready.
TODAY I CHOOSE TO CHANGE!
A young lady confidently
walked around the room while leading and explaining stress management to an
audience with a raised glass of water. Everyone knew she was going
to ask the ultimate question, 'half empty or half full?'... She fooled
them all ... "How heavy is this glass of water?" she inquired with a
smile. Answers called out ranged from 8 oz. To 20 oz.
She replied , "The
absolute weight doesn't matter. It depends on how long I hold
it. If I hold it for a minute, that's not a problem. If I hold it
for an hour, I'll have an ache in my right arm.
If I hold it for a day,
you'll have to call an ambulance. In each case it's the same weight, but
the longer I hold it, the heavier it becomes." She continued,
"and that's the way it is with stress. If we carry our burdens all
the time, sooner or later, as the burden becomes increasingly heavy, we
won't be able to carry on."
"As with the glass of
water, you have to put it down for a while and rest before holding it
again. When we're refreshed, we can carry on with the burden - holding
stress longer and better each time practiced. So, as early in the evening
as you can, put all your burdens down. Don't carry them through the
evening and into the night... Pick them up tomorrow.
