For what it is worth, I will say this: If you messed up recently, or made that "big mistake", there is ultimately another chance for you if you wait a minute past that last failure there. My position is that each failure is a slip, not a fall, and it is a genuine fall if you let it be...
This article is based on my favorite Martin Luther King, Jr. quote: "Instead of burn, baby, burn, you better earn, baby, earn!"
Right now I am in Redondo Beach hanging around, enjoying the sun and meditating. Strangely, this article came out of a slice of life I am experiencing. I hope it is entertaining.
Cause and effect are the ultimate powers in existence and genuinely repeatable. Luck is a miracle that can happen, but is not repeatable, unless there is more luck to make it repeat somehow. When I write about cause and effect purely, I am writing about objective reality that is a pri...
Before you begin this article: Breathe deeply and comfortably, and continue to do so. Now, we all must spend less time coming up with our goals than we do achieving and enjoying them. Sure, it is one time to take our time creating our goals, but an always better thing to take action t...
Nothing ever stays the same. Everything is change. As long as reality is in motion, there can never be anything that stays still. With that said in an "easy" way, I begin this article and sections.
Realistically, what we can expect from life is what we give to it. Service, is not just a word, but a way of being that starts from within. A cheerful heart in life makes one more powerful and effective. Doing things with a grudge or a nervousness about it (of course) makes a person w...
In Napoleon Hill's book "Think and Grow Rich", there was a tale about an "ignorant", "uneducated" man who made a fortune like Henry Ford in the hospitality and hotel business. Genuine ignorance and uneducated thinking is not to see the opportunities in front of you and under your feet...
When you feel everything is "going damn well down the tubes", and when you feel "there is not any hope", I can only give you the advice Viktor Frankl gave everyone in his books, essentially for starters: We should not expect anything of life, but life does expect things out of us that...
Ask not and it shall not be given. Ask and it shall be given. Sure, that sounds rather "holy" or something, but is that not the reality of life. Ultimately, we all get what we ask for, and allow what we do not ask for. This is what makes reality a double edged sword which cuts all way...
Can you take reality? Sure, we can try to fake it, try to avoid it, try to cheat it and everything else. But, ultimately reality is as existence exists, and it cannot be avoided. Sure, we can shuffle it on down the road like normal people do and deal with it in thirty years or make ou...
Earl Nightingale said that we become what we think about. Okay, that does sound plausible even at shallow levels of reality. But what about the deeper meaning of life as a whole. In anything we get deeper on or succeed at, we must have courage to think the right thoughts and take the ...
Everybody wants to thrive, at least on paper if they cut corners and cheat a little bit. But the best way to thrive is to really and unequivocally thrive. Indeed, at the beginning of this article, I use the overused Mark Spitz quote: "We all love to win, but who loves to train?" Withi...
Life is about as good as we make it, the old saying goes. But, what are the bounds of reality that we can define? Is reality like the small town in "It's A Wonderful Life" where everybody, especially a "little guy" like George Bailey counts fully or is it a grand revolution in univers...
This is not my opinion, this is a reality for me. It may be concise and to the point, but it gets my total point across about realistic leadership that works, versus unrealistic leadership that does not work.
For me, the ultimate aspiration and goal is to patiently survive all of life's storms and just plain be more patient and powerful as you will be able to tell by the Gospel hymn by Charles Albert Tindley I start out quoting in the next section.
Life is an opportunity, take it to better yourself. For as it says in the Bible of Christendom (As a universal law also:) To them that have, more will be given. To them that have not, what little is there will be taken away. What that means is that you must appreciate what you have an...
Sometimes, real life can be way more scary than any work of fiction.
Jesus Christ said to us according to his word, "Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you'll recover your life. I'll show you how to take a real rest.- See Matthew 11:28 in the Message Bible. Life can really tire you out and when you are wor...
I tell you,nothing inspires hopelessness than watching a monster move out of its lane,sideways towards your jalopy.You hoot,slam on the breaks,bite the lower lip,pray,curse but to no avail as the shattering glass confirms your worst fears.
Facing reality without fear can seem like a "no person's land" to some and a genuine impetus for betterment to others. In certain ways, risk is power. I did not say "gambling", I said "risk". Going to new places in our lives is always healthy especially when it expands us.
This document is about money, value and gaining money and value. That is it.
Consistent luck is a dream. But, developed skill is indeed a reality of life when it comes down to it. Indeed, permanent success comes through skill not luck, no matter how many "lucky breaks" received. In short, to earn, you must give skill to get results. Without it, nothing is earn...
If you have someone do it for you later, they will usually do it to you now. What that means is, if you want something done properly, you cannot procrastinate, you must do it yourself efficiently and as soon as possible. This is the bulk of what the article and sections will be about...
Compassion should in my reality be a way of life toward yourself as well as everyone anyone meets. But, usually it is practiced out of guilt, compromise and fear. This article is about how anyone can practice compassion in life and benefit themselves and others.
