Follow Your Own Star …

1

 

We all have dreams. Sometimes, it’s very easy to get distracted and lose focus. We meet people in our lives that we think will make a difference. We become blind to the reality of what is true and what isn’t. Never give up on your dreams for the sake of someone else. If they are truly meant to be in your life they will prove their respect and loyalty to you. Yes, people will take advantage of your good will. That’s unfortunate. Remain true to your heart. Let those that are not honest with you burden the guilt. Anyone can run and hide but no one can escape karma. That catches up with everyone. No one likes to be disrespected in any manner. No one deserves that …

It is important to follow your own star. To be a star you must shine your own light. Follow your own path, and don’t worry about the darkness, for that is when stars shine brightest. When you can learn to do this, you will enter a world where you will find that those that are positive, will gravitate to you. Those that permeate negativity, will never have a chance with you … We live on a beautiful planet. Sometimes, we all need to just open our eyes … Everyone truly is, the master of their own destiny …

Champion the right to be yourself … Learn to BELIEVE IN YOURSELF … Dare to be different … Live your own life and follow your own star …

Life has many ups and downs. Many obstacles that we must face.

If you put your mind to it. You can conquer anything.

In your life, you will meet positive as well as negative people.

Stick to the positive one’s. They are the only one’s that truly care about you.

Always stand up for what you believe in, because if you don’t stand for something,

You’ll fail with everything.

Always, Believe In Yourself. When you do, you can accomplish anything.

Never quit. Never give up.

We are all born to be fighter’s.

Always believe that you can and you will never stop fighting.

We All Have Choices …

In life we all have choices. The choices we make determine our destiny. The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be …. I will always have choices ….

I choose to live by choice, not by chance …. I choose to be motivated, not manipulated …. I choose to be useful, not used …. I choose to make changes, not excuses …. I choose to excel, not compete …. I choose self-esteem, not self pity …. I choose to listen to my inner voice, not to the random opinion of others …. I am the Captain of my soul and the master of my destiny …. That is my choice.

Try to spend time with positive people. Life is much to awesome to waste time with people that don’t treat you right. Surround yourself with people that make you happy and make you smile. People who help you up when you are down. People who would never take advantage of you. People who genuinely care. They are the ones worth keeping in your life. Everyone else is just passing through. Don’t ever change who you are so that certain people will like you. Be yourself and the right people will love the real you.

Always ‘Believe In Yourself’ because there is only one you …. When you ‘Believe In Yourself’ your aura will burn brightly and others will follow you …. Yes, we all have choices.

There Is A Reason …

Monument Valley, Arizona

Why are we here? What is our purpose? These are just a few questions that everyone will ask themselves at one time or another in their lives. There is a reason why we are all here. Everyone has a purpose. Everyone you meet, everything you do, everything you experience – has a reason.

Sir Isaac Newton’s ‘Third Law Of Physics’ stated that : “For Every Action There Is An Equal And Opposite Reaction”. That applies not only in science but in every day social interaction. For example, when we go through good as well as bad relationships, we learn through experience. These experiences teach us about what is good and bad in our lives. Everyone should strive to surround themselves with ‘positive’ not ‘negative’ energy. Positive energy will help you grow both spiritually and intellectually. Negative energy will drain you of all that is good in your life. Since I began my ‘Believe In Yourself – World Tour’, I have visited many hospitals in many cities and I have discovered that sometimes the greatest healer is a simple smile. When you can touch someone’s heart that is in pain with even a moment of joy – there is no better feeling. When that happens – you know that you must be doing something right. Never underestimate the power of a kind word and a smile. Many people go through life taking things for granted and not truly appreciating what they have. It’s called being selfish. Stay away from people like that. They can do nothing good for you, only give you disappointment.

Life moves very quickly. Don’t let it pass you by … Live with no regrets … If your life has been filled with negativity – just remember – you can change that at any moment. Take control of who you are. When you wake up tomorrow morning – have a plan. Decide that you want to live for now and the future in a positive world. If it involves making some difficult decisions – as long as it for the positive – don’t be afraid to do it. We are the masters of our own destiny. Leave a positive legacy. Always ‘Believe In Yourself’. Don’t be afraid to take chances. Strive to be good to people. Remember, there is a reason why we are all here. You may save someone’s life tomorrow – or they may save yours. Be nice to everyone, even strangers. Remember the power of a kind word and a smile. You may change someone’s life forever. That is your strength – that can be your legacy.

The road of life is long. Sometimes it may seem distant. But in reality, it is here and now. Choose your path wisely. Everything can change in a split second … We all have a destiny. We are all one in the universe. For every action there is a reaction. Remember, there is a reason …

 

“EVERY MAN”S HEART, ONE DAY BEATS IT’S FINAL BEAT.

HIS LUNGS BREATHE THEIR FINAL BREATH.

AND IF WHAT THAT MAN DID IN HIS LIFE’

MAKES THE BLOOD PULSE THROUGH THE BLOOD OF OTHERS,

IT MAKES THEM BLEED DEEPER, 

AND SOMETHING LARGER THAN LIFE,

THEN HIS ESSENCE, HIS SPIRIT, WILL BE IMMORTALIZED.”

I Will Succeed …

1

WHY WILL I SUCCEED?

I will succeed because I am willing to do the things that most people are not.

I will fight against all the odds. I will sacrifice.

I will never be shackled by fear, insecurity or doubt. I am human – I feel those emotions.

I will drink them in and then swallow them away to the blackness of hell.

I am motivated by accomplishment, not pride.

Pride consumes the weak – it will kill your heart from within.

If I fall – I will get up. If I am beaten – I will return.

I will never stop getting better. I will never give up – ever.

I believe in myself.

Welcome to the machine.

THAT IS WHY I WILL SUCCEED

It’s Your Life … You Can Make It Better

Nice ...

Life is a beautiful gift. What you do with it is your choice. Some people know how to live life to the fullest, while others seem to just take it for granted. I’ve had to learn the hard way to enjoy my life. For many years and several relationships I’ve always lived for others – not myself. I would always try to make others happy at my expense. In the end, it was not worth it. They didn’t appreciate anything and as a result those individuals are no longer in my life. Sometimes, you have to learn to be a little selfish. If you have a dream – go for it. If you want to travel – do it. If you want to get in the best shape of your life – do it. Make yourself happy for a change. After all, it is YOUR life! Overall, living your dreams will make you a better person. Life moves by very quickly. Enjoy it when you can …

 

Here are some ideas to improve your life:

 

Enjoy Nature – You probably seriously underestimate how important this is. Being in nature reduces stress, makes you more creative, improves your memory and may even make you a better person. Go ahead – get some fresh air for a change.

Exercise – I cannot overemphasize the importance of what exercise can do for everyone. Unfortunately, few people do it consistently. Other than health benefits too numerous to mention, exercise makes you smarter, happier, improves sleep, increases libido and makes you feel better about your body. Get off the couch – exercise! Try it, you might like it.

Spend Time With Your Friends & Family – This can be one of the biggest sources of happiness in our lives. Not feeling socially connected can lead to feelings of depression and loneliness. People with the highest rate of longevity on the planet all place a strong emphasis on social engagement and they truly believe that good relationships are more important to a long life than even exercise. Friends are key to improving your life. Share good news and enthusiastically respond when others share good news with you to improve your relationships. Want to instantly be happier? Do something kind for them.

Always Express Gratitude – It will make you happier. It will improve your relationships. It can make you a better person. It can make life better for everyone around you.

Meditate – Meditation can increase happiness, meaning in life, social support and attention span while reducing anger, anxiety, depression and fatigue. Learn how to relax. You will be a better person for it.

Get Proper Rest – You can’t cheat yourself on sleep and not have it affect you. Being tired actually makes it harder to be happy. When you lack proper rest your immune system will be affected, increasing your chances of getting sick. So take naps if you have to. Just make sure that you get the proper rest that you deserve. Your body will thank you for it.

Challenge Yourself – Always strive to keep your mind sharp. Learn a new skill. Take a course on one of your favorite subjects. Strengthen your mind. You want to run a race? Train for it. You want to do yoga? Go for it. Keep your mind fresh. Keep busy.

Laugh – Learn the importance of laughter. Laughter is a great stress reducer that can be contagious with all of those around you. People who use humor to cope with stress have better immune systems, have a reduced risk of heart attacks and stroke, and tend to live longer. So laugh it up everyone!

Stay Optimistic – Optimism can make you healthier, happier and even extend your life. Always stay positive.

Whatever you feel you need to do to make your life better, never be afraid to try. Live your life to the fullest. Never let anyone hold you back. Those that are in your life should enhance it – not restrict it. Time moves very quickly. Never have regrets. Follow your dreams … Always ‘Believe In Yourself’ and you will find your way …

Look forward … Never look back …

True Colors …

Sunrise In Space

The dawn of a new day … Each day the sun will set and then it will rise. We all have the chance to forget what was yesterday and focus on today. A chance to start fresh. To dream bigger dreams. In life we do things, some we wish that we had never done. Some we wish we could replay a million times in our heads. We meet people every day. Some that can be good for us and some that will disappointment us. But that’s okay. They all make us who we are, and in the end they will help shape every detail about us. If we were to reverse anything we would not be who we are. People will always show their ‘true colors’. That may be a good thing or that may be a bad thing. Nevertheless, we cannot control that. So just live, make mistakes, have wonderful memories. But never ever second guess yourself, where you have been, and most importantly where it is that you are going … Be proud of who you are. Always ‘Believe In Yourself’ and you will do what your heart says is right … Don’t worry about when someone shows their ‘true colors’, just worry about yourself and be thankful that your eyes were opened to the truth … Everything will fall into place … Remember, you will always have – the dawn of a new day …
