Today’s Thought: Home Is Where The Heart Is.

Home is where the heart is; literally.

The emotion or thought you keep coming back to, in every circumstance, is where your “home” is. The question you have to ask yourself is “do I want to live here anymore?

Now hold on to your seat…

Nothing is holding you back; you’ve decided to stay.

Acceptance keeps us here.

And as hard as we try to break free, we can never break free from what we agree to. Our acceptance of it gives it permission to remain and the power to restrain.

As hard as it is to face, we’re choosing this place. Something about it keeps drawing us back. The key to getting free is not courage, not strength, not opportunity, not connection; the key is decision.

As soon as you make up our mind that you will NEVER come back here again, you won’t. But until then you will keep finding your way home and complaining about why you are still here. You will find every reason in the world why you are stuck here, except for one in the mirror.

Home is where the heart is.

If you’re not happy where you’re at, maybe it’s time to search for another place to live.

To Your Best Life Ever!

Grasp This If You Can, And Your Life Will Change Forever

If you can grasp this, it will set you free, AND, put you on a totally new course in life and business.

Are you ready?

….

“It’s Intentional.”

….

Grasp this if you can. The World is not seeing you right now because, “it’s intentional.” You are being passed over for promotion right now because, “it’s intentional.” Everything you are wishing, hoping, and praying to happen in your life right now is not happening because, say it with me, “it’s intentional.”

There’s a masterful story in the Christian Bible where Jesus was attending a wedding. The host of the party ran out of wine and came to Jesus to “fix it.” Jesus said the most powerful words ever uttered in the Universe, as far as I’m concerned. He said, “it’s not my time.”

You Have A Perfect Time To Shine

It’s not my time. Now, there’s so much being said here, on so many different levels, we can’t dive into it all in this post, but the key for you to know is, you have a perfect time to shine. A “set time,” an “ordained time,” if you please.

And if you will resist the urge to allow society to “mold you” into who they need or want you to be, and if you keep trusting in the deep calling that’s centered in your soul, and not get ahead of yourself, you will get to where you want to go, AND, more importantly, you will be right on time.

You see, if you’re allowed to shine before your time you will be a flash in the pan; a one-hit wonder. But if you wait patiently, remain humble, in due time you SHALL be exalted. And when your time has come, you will transcend most of the arduous journey moving from obscurity to notoriety seemingly overnight.

It’s Not Linked To Age

Remember, this kind of “time” is not linked to age. It is never too late. I recently worked with Robbie at a weeklong city-wide business expo who is in her 80’s and still doing business all across the country.

I met Dr. Barbara Young at the same event who is also in her 80s. Who didn’t go back to school to get her education until she was in her sixties. She went on to get her PHD.

In a recent podcast I was listening to with Oprah and Jane Fonda, Jane shared how she didn’t find her true self until after she turned sixty!

The World Is Being Prepared For You

Your “time” is not linked to age; it’s linked to preparedness. Destiny is only predicated on the fullness of time. You see, not only are you being prepared for the world, but the world is being prepared for you!

Be patient. Be kind. Be humble. You haven’t been passed by, you’ve been prepared; prepared for such a time as this.

Grasp this if you can, and your life will change forever. It’s intentional.

Are You Out of Your Mind?!

Wednesday Wisdom: “Are You Out Of Your Mind?!

Where does your head need to be in order for you to take full advantage of where you are?

Money rarely determines the most important outcomes in our life; attitude does. You can have it “oh so right” and see it “oh so wrong” and you’re going to miss out on an opportunity of a life time.

Resist the urge to “figure it all out” before acting upon it. Remain open, flexible, fluid. Get on and go for the ride. See where it take you.

Don’t over steer it.

Keep watching ahead for signs that it may be time to change direction, or even “get off the bus,” but don’t try and figure it all out before you even get started. It will keep you where you’re at.

When you start where you’re at, again, you will look back and beat your self up, again. You’ll bathe in the regret of what you wish you would have done, again.

And when it does materialize, and you do finally see it for what it is, you will wish you could have seen it for what it could have been and took the chance; taken the leap.

Are you out of your mind?

Ask to see what’s in front of you the the way you need to see it, so you can be who you need to be, at this specific moment, so you can take full advantage of the opportunity that is in front of you.

How you see it will determine whether or not you seize it, or rationalize it away….again.

Are you out of your mind?
