Giving Up Not an Option Today

“Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.”–Thomas Edison

It’s difficult to gauge when to let go of something and when to keep going. Competitive, successful folks will tell you that they’re willing to take one more step than you.

Any setback should be viewed as a time to re-evaluate change course and move forward again. The sad truth is most people quit when delays occur. Saying “it’s too hard” “this won’t work.”

happy, prayer, God

Don’t just give up when the seas get rough. Set a new course towards calmer seas. If you see a Hurricane coming you don’t want sale towards it, you get the hell out of there. Same principal with anything you’re trying to achieve.

Okay, crazy move quote. Clint Eastwood playing a Marine would tell his soldiers “We’re Marines we improvise, we adapt, we overcome.” That statement has stuck in my head for years. Something I share a great deal.

You can quit, or you can improvise, adapt and overcome. It’s up to you!

Colonel Sanders had to go out over one thousand times before he was able to get his chicken recipe out to millions. Kentucky Fried Chicken!

The real question is how committed are you. Think of the old adage “where there is a will there is a way.” I always joke that one day I am going to crack the safe and oh wow! Keeping in mind that I am serious.

When you think you cannot take another step. Pick up your foot and take the step!!!

Conflict in your Head Getting Rid of It

“Conflict cannot survive without your participation.”–Wayne Dyer

What I loved about Wayne Dyer is his ability to evolve his spiritual awareness. He was open to receive the grace of the universe, God.

The quote rings so true for me. Conflict in my head is what slows me down. Not taking time to resolve my thoughts to accept what is and faith for what will be.

prayer, bible, self help

Staying in faith that God will work through my life if I just let him. I’m terrible about hanging onto the past. Mistakes that we make are not life sentences of internal pain. This exists when we participate in that conflict.

Letting go of it is not easy for some. We get okay with pain, wallow in our own self-loathing. Begging the question, how do we stop this behavior?

Learning to forgive yourself is where I started. Throughout my life, I have chosen unwisely many times. Costing me relationships, especially with family. How you can resolve yourself is to not do the old behavior. Live life as a better you!

Don’t accept the status quo!   

Today I don’t live as I did in the past. After enough loss in my life, what the hell us could I do? So you dive in and learn to live a life that YOU can be proud of. An easy measuring stick is to ask yourself when you’re doing something “would grandma approve?” When you are doing anything, we all know right from wrong!

This cliche when you have arrived at this place in your mind; “Sick and Tired of being Sick and Tired.” Crying, depressed, or ready to give up? DO NOT!

Change can hurt, change can take time. On the other side of change is the life God promises you will have. It’s not just going to happen this moment we all have to do the work. It’s so worth it!

Hurt comes in many forms. So this article applies if you’ve suffered loss from divorce, death, betrayal or any number of things that were out of your control.

The pain you are going through is not as important as how you deal with it. Learning to deal with our grief in a healthy way takes work. It’s worth the time and effort necessary to change old paradigms. The promise of life, happiness, and joy exist.

I can hear you screaming Okay how:

  1. Throw everything in your head up to God. Pray and confess everything negative in your life. Let him know you are ready for a change.
  2. Breathe. Take time every day to just stop and breathe. Don’t say this is stupid until you actually try. I thought to breathe whatever. Just take a minute or two only and breathe.
  3. Learn to meditate. It’s super easy!
  4. Get toxic people out of your life. Don’t listen to someone’s poisonous bile. You control the person you are not someone else.
  5. Patience. Nothing worth having comes overnight. Go at your pace, JUST GO. This is not a contest. Do things every day that help moves your life forward. Some days big stips, somedays small steps. Forward motion is always a good thing.

Okay, so five things to get you started. Now it’s your turn. GET STARTED!

“I was offered a job on Wall Street by my uncle. But I wanted to get out. Make-it-on-my-own kinda thing.”–George H.W. Bush  

We honor a great American today. Someone that made their own way in this life, no matter your politics you have to respect that. He was a fantastic family man, and with that, we say good-bye.

Impossible is Possible!

“It always seems impossible until it’s done.”–Nelson Mandela

It’s only impossible if you think it is. Nothing is if you believe in your heart you can. You’re not too old, not too young, not enough education, not enough blah, blah, blah. You are if you BELIEVE YOU ARE!

Life takes work, life takes courage. Grab your courage and let’s GO.

life, happiness, courage

Learn to Move Past Defeat

“We may encounter many defeats but we must not be defeated.”–Maya Angelou

God, prayer, faith, hope

Something I struggle with strength, but these words from Maya Angelou bring me strength. We all suffer setbacks but we don’t have to just lay down. Fight through, keep your faith!
