What Have You Been Saying NO To?

WHAT HAVE YOU BEEN SAYING NO TO? Do you immediately discount something before you have even gone within and checked with your heart to see if what is trying to emerge is in fact something that will serve you and the highest good of all? Is NO a force of habit and since change is not the easiest concept to embrace you automatically assume the NO position as a means of avoiding conflict and therefore perhaps miss a great opportunity to allow something other than the little small voice within you to speak louder than the real truth of who you are.

When you allow assumptions to make choices for you those choices are not centered in the absolute divine wisdom and intelligence that is always looking to support you. You could be missing out on the greatest discovery of all by simply immediately saying no to something. If you would just give yourself the freedom to say yes even though the yes would mean taking a leap of faith a whole new way of seeing and living your life could emerge.

There is a perfect and magnificent order to the universe that always governs our every decision and will always move us in the perfect direction towards our intended desire. In order for this infinite intelligence to operate through us we must be open to possibilities that sometimes may look and seem uncomfortable. You wouldn't know they were uncomfortable though unless you gave yourself permission to feel the feelings and emotions that come with exploring new experiences in your life.

WHAT HAVE YOU BEEN SAYING NO TO is a powerful question you must always ask yourself. It will keep fully aware and present to the present moment. Keep stretching yourself in ways that are unfamiliar so that you can become more familiar to the awesome genius inside of you.

Unleash the brilliance that is part of your DNA in every way so that each d ay is an awesome journey. Never give up on something because it doesn't look like you think it should. NO is a powerful word use it wisely and when you do the mighty power of the sacred yes will guide you to a destination that is always unconditionally in harmony with the calling of your heart.

"Believing the first thing that appears in the garden of your mind may not always be the truth...ask great questions so that you may get great answers and feel into the consciousness of everything is possible."

I AM in perfect harmony with the wisdom of my soul
I listen to the infinite essence of divine intelligence with an open heart
I know that the perfect yes that guides my vision will always serve my highest good
In times of challenge I AM open to the opportunities presented
I see clearly because I have certainty of mind
I AM a perfect expression of absolute perfection

It's your day...MAKE IT A GREAT ONE!

How to Stay Motivated by Dr. Denis Waitley

Be willing to say to yourself, “I’m on the right road. I’m doing OK. I’m succeeding.” We too frequently become adept at pointing out our flaws and identifying failures. Become equally adept at citing your achievements. Identify things you are doing now that you weren’t doing one month ago… six months ago… a year ago. What habits have changed? Chart your progress.

Doing well once or twice is relatively easy. Continuously moving ahead is tough, in part, because we so easily revert to old habits and former lifestyles. Over the long run, you need to give yourself regular feedback to monitor your performance and reinforce yourself positively. Don’t wait for an award ceremony, promotion, friend or mentor to show appreciation for your work. Take pride in your own efforts on a daily basis.

Keep the end result in sight. Always see the big picture of the ultimate goal you’re working for and the benefits that come with it. During World War II, parachutes were constructed by the thousands. From the workers’ point of view, the job was tedious and repetitive. (Like making “cold calls” on the phone or in person.) It involved crouching over a sewing machine eight to ten hours a day, stitching endless lengths of colorless fabric. The result was a seamless heap of cloth. But every morning the workers were reminded that each stitch was part of a life-saving operation. As they sewed, they were asked to think that this might be the parachute used by their husband, brother or son. Although the work was hard and the hours long, the women and men on the assembly line understood their contribution to the larger picture. The same should be true with your work. Each thing you do benefits the health and well-being of adults and children throughout the world, not just generally, but specifically. These are the visions that drive us through the tedious details to reach the top.

Set up a dynamic daily routine. Getting into a positive routine or groove, instead of a negative rut, will help you become more effective. Why is the subway the most energy-efficient means of transportation? Because it runs on a track.

Think of the order in your day, instead of the routine. Order is not sameness, neatness or everything exactly in its place. Order is not taking on more than you can manage, without still being able to do what you really choose. Order is the opposite of complication; it’s simplification. Order is not wasting a lot of time trying to find things. Order is avoiding a lot of recriminations because you didn’t do something you promised. Order is setting an effective agenda with others, so neither of you is disappointed. Order is doing in a day what you set out to do.

Order frees you up. Get into the swing of a healthy, daily routine and discover how much more control you’ll gain in your life.

Letting go of all that doesn't serve you anymore sometimes can be fearful. That's because we are so used to living life in a certain way that we become habitized in our thinking causing us to believe that what we think is the only way to be. This is absolutely not the way it is.

Great discoveries never came about without having a willingness to step out of the box we might be in and becoming willing to try something new on and to see how it fits. This new paradigm shift might feel uncomfortable at first but it is when we challenge ourselves to go from the uncomfortable to the comfortable that real change occurs.

Rather than compromise your desire to become more of who you are by accepting mediocrity make the only decision that will create a new consciousness for you...say yes to all of life and chart a new course that is big, bold, and exciting. Become enthusiastic at what lays ahead as you SURRENDER to what is seeking to emerge in you.

Don't question the process question that which is holding you back. Release and let go and enjoy the ride. SURRENDER. Some of us might think that means giving up on something. Some of us might thing that is giving up on ourselves. That is not what SURRENDER is.

We are not at war with ourselves or anyone. We are here to express the magnificence and brilliance of who we are in the most powerful way possible. So SURRENDER here means giving into the majestic excellence of who you really are. You are the perfect expression of divine wisdom and intelligence.

You are on a path that is lined with infinite opportunities that are calling out to you every step of the way. This journey known as your life is in perfect harmony with the universe. Once you embrace the truth that there is abundance and prosperity all around you then you effortlessly step into a place of supreme consciousness attuned to your surroundings as you awaken you to the real truth about who you are.

You become more aligned with the calling of your heart as you embrace your passion with confidence. We all have a purpose that is much bigger than who we think we are so SURRENDER to that vision and release your rainbow of creation and create the life you desire. It's up to you, Nows the time to claim your destiny.

"It is in the surrendering of one's sense of needing to know that allows us to be open to what we need to know."

I AM a perfect expression of magnificent love
I AM a perfect expression of magnificent joy
I AM a perfect expression of magnificent harmony
I Am awakened to the heart space of pure potential
Deep inside of me
I know my purpose is a gift to the planet
I open my soul to receive all the light
That guides my way this magnificent day.

It's your day...MAKE IT A GREAT ONE!
