Who Am I?

This is a video that was shared with me. I felt there was no better place to put it than here on my blog and share it with you and pray that you might share it with others. Please be sure to turn up your volume. I didn't need to formulate any words to write at this time ... this video speaks volumes!

Reaching our God given dreams is impossible to do alone - but we are not alone!

"For I know the plans I have for you," says the Lord. "They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. In those days when you pray, I will listen."

Jeremiah 29:11-12 (NLT)

Your Path

Do not follow the path. Go where there is no path to begin the trail.
~ Ashanti proverb

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

It takes courage, strength and conviction to go against the grain. But if someone hadn't done it, we wouldn't have wheat bread, chocolate chip ice cream or radios in our cars. It is often difficult to get other people to follow our train of thought. Stop trying. It's our train. We are the engineer and the conductor. We usually want and need help, support and comfort when we are doing something new. If we do not get it, so what! Does it mean we should stop what we are doing? Absolutely not! The path to success is paved with road signs, warning symbols and obstructions. But when we start a new trail equipped with courage, strength and conviction, the only thing that can stop you is you.

What Do You Believe?

In the province of the mind, what one believes to be true either is true or becomes true.
- John Lilly

What do you believe about the world? Do you believe it is big and beautiful or that it is dangerously doomed? Do you believe there are people out there waiting to get you? What do you think they will do with you when they get you? Do you believe you can't because they won't let you? Do you believe you can because nobody can stop you? Do you believe in choices or the power of destiny? Do you believe in evil? Do you believe you are free? Do you believe that someday, somehow you will be what and where you want to be? Do you believe that someone else has more power than you? How much power do you believe you have? Think about this .... what you believe will come true whether it is good or not so good. What you believe about the world is exactly what you will experience because that is what "YOU" bring into the world.

The world as I see it is a reflection of MY thoughts and actions. The world as I see it is a reflection of YOUR thoughts and actions.
