Message #47 - You Do Have the Power to Choose Greatness

We're all at the exact place we are at because of the choices we've made up to this point...

Every day we have the power to choose:

  • what attitude we're going to have.

  • what fears to embrace.

  • what fears let go of.

  • what spirit we'll have - whether a spirit of LOVE, forgiveness, kindness, meekness, thoughtfulness, courage and GREATNESS.

When we choose a positive and productive spirit we take control of our destiny and paint our future in exactly the way we see it.

Walk with your head up looking at the heavens dreaming of soaring...never down at the ground carefully plodding every step.

Message #46 - Stay Focused on Your Goals

Be Prepared to Be Tested...

  • What is a TEST? A test is when you are challenged...when you doubt...when you stumble...when you don't succeed at first...when you feel like quitting...when you fail...when you think your not good enough...when you get sick...when you get tired...when you are wondering how in the world are you're going to do this...

  • A test is merely a chance to reaffirm your commitment to your goal. Welcome any and all opportunities to be tested, because after going through the test you become stronger. So the more tests - the stronger you become.

  • Stand firm and determined not to quit during the test knowing that when you make it through you will be stronger and more committed to the goal.

  • Never let the outcome of a test discourage you from your goals. Always remember your desire is to achieve your goal and not any particular test.
