There are times when you simply need to DO IT!!

In life, we are always challenged and need to learn new things. Not only do we need to learn new things, but we also need to DO mew things as well. When someone does a parachute jump or a bungee rope jump, there is an element of being scared stiff. But, by taking the action and doing it, the experience is exhilirating and will last you a lifetime. Life will never be the same again!!

Not everyone needs to jump out of a plane or a bungee jump, there are different levels for different people.  But, by going out and doing something different, even helping someone, it can change your day, especially if you are shy.  Spending a day as a volunteer with an organisation can be just as challenging for some and the simple act of helping out will make the difference for the better.

So, what are you going to do that might scare you, not kill you, and make a difference yours and somebody else’s life?

Some Quotes To Think About

The question for each man to settle is not what he would do if he had means, time, influence and educational advantages; the question is what he will do with the things he has. The moment a young man ceases to dream or to bemoan his lack of opportunities and resolutely looks his conditions in the face, and resolves to change them, he lays the corner-stone of a solid and honorable success.
Hamilton Wright Mabie

All men dream but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity; but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dream with open eyes to make it possible.
T.E. Lawrence


Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.
Harriet Tubman

So, do not only dream your dreams, but choose them, act upon them, believe in them, but, above all, believe in yourself to do anything that you set your mind to do!!

You Will Never Go Any Higher Than You Think

“Nurture your mind with great thoughts, for you will
never go any higher than you think.”  ~Benjamin Disraeli

Are you where you want to be today, if not why not? The answer to that question is very easy. You are not where you wan to be because you do not believe that you deserve to be there. There is something blocking your progress and the only thing that can block you is your own thoughts. The thoughts that you nurture are the building blocks of your future, so if they are thoughts of lack or of failure then your future will be more lack and failure.  however if you choose to nurture thoughts of abundance and success then you will bring abundance and success into your life.

Many people thought  that this was just New Age hype, but even scientists have now discovered more about the power of thought.  It is not something that has just been discovered, it has been round since time began.It does not matter whether you believe it or disbelieve it. The Law of Attraction works either way.

It is very strange but one of the hardest steps to attracting wealth is peoples inability to accept that they deserve it. You may wish for prosperity, you may even pray for it, you may even try convincing yourself that you believe that you are worthy of it. But then something goes wrong and you back track and decide that you were only kidding yourself.  All that positive energy you have built up then just goes crashing down like a sandcastle and you find yourself back at the bottom trying to climb back up that hill.

There is an easier way but we mortals always seem to take the hard way. We never learn from our mistakes; we carry on doing the same thing day after day and expecting a different outcome.

If you mixed a cake mixture and the recipe said bake in an oven for 10 minutes but you decided that you would bake it for 30 then the mixture would burn and the cake would be useless. The next time you used that recipe would you decide to bake it for 30 minutes again or would you remember that the cake would be ruined and abide by the rules and  cook for just 10 minutes.

Yet time after time we are shown a better way of living our life and we still decide to take the hard route. We still tell ourselves that we do not deserve better. Is it not time to let go of that limiting belief and start living the life that you really want.

If you limit your expectations then you will limit your life but when you start opening your mind and expecting more then you start attracting more opportunities into your life.

You will be amazed at how manyopportunities you may have missed because you were not open to receiving them. People have sold their homes and everything that they own because they have heard of an opportunity and they have lived to regret it. Like the man who wanted to own a diamond. He sold his land for a pittance and traveled  in search of his fortune. He eventually died broke and hungry; but had he just dug on his own land he would have found some of the most rarest diamonds in the world, some of which were later set into the crown of monarchies around the world. This is a true story and can be found in “Acre’s of Diamonds”.

When would be the best time to change your life?  Please do not make the mistake that many do and say to yourself “I will start tomorrow!” Because my friend tomorrow never comes. If you want to change your life start now, start today, start right now. You can  do it if only you would take the first step.

Happy or Sad It Is Your Choice


You can choose to be happy right now

It does not matter whether you are very rich or very poor, whether you are old or young, it does not even matter whether you were at the top of your class at school or the very bottom. The truth is that you are the only person can can decide whether you are going to be happy or sad. If you let fear into your mind then you will attract more fear.


We humans have the ability to control our thoughts. We have the sole choice of what we feed into our minds. Other people can voice their opinion but it is up to us whether we choose to believe their views or not. If someone calls you a bad name or does something that you think is wrong and you choose to be upset about it, then it is not them that has hurt you but yourself, because you have chosen to allow them to.


How you think and what you think is entirely up to you. Do you choose to live your life by default or by design?  You have the ability to accumulate great wealth into your life or great poverty, but you have to learn to use your abilities just as you had to learn to read or walk or talk.

The law of attraction, unfortunately, is not a subject that is taught to us at school. If it was there would be a lot less friction in the world.

Nothing in this world or any other can be accomplished without it first being a thought; Thoughts are the start of every success and of every failure. It is what you decide to do with your original idea that decides whether it moves forward or dies.

If you hold your idea and feed it with the faith that it will work then it will find a way to come into existence.


Abraham Lincoln was a failure at even venture he had tried. He was turned forty years old before he had an idea and from that idea he became one of the greatest men in history.  That single idea grew into a bigger idea and the more he cultivated that idea the more it grew.

If you decide that you will not allow anything or anyone to put negative thoughts or ideas into your mind then you will live a more productive and happier life.

Worry is just a state of mind and you can control your state of mind. Do you know that you cannot hold a negative and a positive thought in your mind at the same time?   This has been proven and so all you need do when you find yourself starting to fear something is change that thought to a more positive thought and hold it there. Put on a cheery piece of music or learn positive affirmations. Do something that inspires you. If you refuse to live in fear then you will start to live in faith.


When you decide to empower yourself by making the decision to dispel fear you will see that it is much easier to manifest everything that you want, need or desire into your life, no matter what the outside circumstances look like.
