Message #102 - Are You Not Achieving What You Want...

You Must Change Your Thoughts, Keep Your Head Up and Focus your Thoughts on What You Want.

This is Easier Said Than Done. What I find with most people that are not achieving what they want (or just plain not happy) is that they keep looking at all the crap they've been through or simply put; the negative outcomes or failures in their life, and that's where their focus is.

You've all heard the phrase: "Change your Focus...Change Your Life"

The Big Question is HOW DO I CHANGE MY FOCUS???

Well it all starts with producing just ONE DIFFERENT THOUGHT from the ones you've had.

Each Thought we have produces a chemical reaction in our brain and in turn produces an action in line with that thought.

The Average Person Has Between 50,000 and 60,000 thoughts per day. I'm Amazed by that. You should be too. Even when you think you're not thinking... Guess What... You are.... and Here may lie your Stumbling Block to the Success You Want.

If the majority of your 50,000-60,000 thoughts each day are focused on the crap of the past, and knowing that chemical reactions are produced in the brain by each thought, leading to specific actions guided by the thought, then it's not hard to understand why we REPEAT BAD CYCLES, DECISIONS & FAILURES in our life.

Think about this: "How many bad thoughts do you have to string together to end up having a bad day".

Now Think about the reverse of this. "How many good thoughts do you have to string together to end up having a good day".

Message #101 - Ride the Wild Tiger!

Life is Like a Wild Tiger.... You can either lie down and let it Lay its paw on your Head.... or...... YOU CAN SIT ON ITS BACK AND RIDE IT!

Heard this recently, don't know who the original author is, but it really impacted me in a big way and I wanted to share it.

I find in my own life the essence of this quote working. Who hasn't been knocked down by LIFE? ... Nobody! ...We all Have... and Guess What... we will continue to be knocked down...

LIFE (or as the wise author of this quote has coined "The Wild Tiger") has dealt us all some hard times and will continue to rear its ugly head from time to time..

The really important questions is... are we going to let it (the circumstance that LIFE dealt) control us???

I love the way the way the author says "you can lie down and let it (LIFE's circumstance) Lay its (HEAVY - added by me) paw on your head"

In my own Life I stay beaten down until I decide to face the Tiger head on and RIDE IT... If I fall off... I get back on... and back on... and back on.... you get the picture...

Eventually I overcome it and RIDE THE TIGER. It's the same principle for achieving your Goals. Your Goal is the Wild Tiger.

Are you going to RIDE THE WILD TIGER???
