Acceptance

 

There is a tendency among people to think that when we accept things, we’re being weak and allowing life to “have its way” with us, that we’re relinquishing control over our lives.  Nothing, though, could be further from the truth.  Acceptance simply shows a great sense of awareness, and it allows us to be fully present in each moment as we make our ways through life.

Sometimes we get so caught up in seeing life as we want it to be that we’re completely unable to see life as it is.  When that happens, we’re unable to deal with our situations as they are because we still see them as we want them to be.

The curious paradox is that when I accept
myself just as I am, then I can change.

Carl Rogers

Very often, our need to accept ourselves is our strongest need of all.  We are who we are, and no amount of wishful thinking will make us someone else, will make us different.  We are the product of our environments, the product of our genetic material, and the product of the choices and decisions that we’ve made and the thoughts that we have.  We may be able to start right now to become someone different for tomorrow, but there really is no way of changing who we are at this moment.  It’s important to realize that we’ve done the best that we’ve can, we’ve made mistakes, and we’ve had our triumphs, and we are who we are.  Accept that, and move on with your life, or deny it, and remain unable to make positive changes because you’re not in touch with what really needs to be changed.

Acceptance is not giving up, and it’s not being fatalistic, and it’s not resignation.  Rather, it’s the healthy recognition of things as they are, a recognition that can help us to move on with our lives and improve them, and improve ourselves.  Without acceptance, we continue to fight against forces that we deny even exist; with acceptance, we’re able to work with life in order to make our lives and our experiences more positive and more fulfilling. – See more at: http://positive-thoughts.typepad.com/#sthash.9cgjcC2U.dpuf

We Can Change the World Let’s start right now!

 

IF EACH ONE OF US who is reading this article would practice getting in touch with the treasures within us on a daily basis, we could literally change the world. People living the truth change the world. For the truth of our being is that we are filled with unconditional love. We are filled with incredible joy. We are filled with serene peace. We are connected to infinite wisdom.

What we need to do is to know it and live it!

Today we are mentally preparing for tomorrow. The thoughts we think, the words we speak, the beliefs we accept, shape our tomorrows. Every morning, stand in front of a mirror and affirm to yourself:

I am filled with unconditional love, and I express it today.

I am filled with joy, and I express it today.

I am filled with peace, and I express it today.

I am filled with infinite wisdom, and I practice it today.

And this is the truth about me.

Now that is a powerful way to start your day! You can do it!

Remember, our spiritual connection does not need a middle man. We can pray and meditate quite easily by ourselves. It is important that we know that we all have a direct pipeline to the source of all of life. When we are consciously connect to this source, our life flows in wondrous ways.

Our souls are always seeking greater growth and integration, an opportunity to heal and express all that we are. Sometimes it is very difficult to understand the methods our souls use to promote our growth. Our personalities, the part of us we assume in order to participate on the Earth plane, have certain expectations and needs. We become afraid, resistant, and sometimes angry when our expectations, such as material advancements, aren’t immediately met. It is in these moments, more than any other, that we must hold fast to our faith that there is a higher power working in our lives and that if we are open and willing to grow and change, that things will work out for our highest good.

Often our most painful moments, the times that stretch our personality the furthest, are the moments that provide us with the greatest opportunity for growth. These become an occasion for you to develop great self-love and greater self-trust. It may or may not comfort you to know that many people are seemingly experiencing setbacks in their lives as well. We are at a place of accelerated growth on this planet. Now more than ever is the time to be extra loving and patient with yourself. Do not resist any opportunity for growth. In times of difficulty, it is important to practice gratitude and blessings as much as you are able.

I Don’t Believe in Defeat by Norman Vincent Peale

There is no difficulty you cannot overcome.  A wise and philosophical man once said to me, when asked how he overcame his difficulties, “How do I get through a trouble?  Well, first I try to go around it, and if I can’t go around it, I try to get under it, and if I can’t get under it, I try to go over it, and if I can’t get over it, I just plow right through it.”  Then he added, “God and I plow right through it.”

An effective method for making your mind positive in character is to eliminate certain expressions of thought and speech which we may call the “little negatives.”  These negatives clutter up the average person’s conversation, and while each one is seemingly unimportant in itself, the total effect is to condition the mind negatively.  When this thought of “little negatives” first occurred to me, I began to analyze my own conversational habits and was shocked by what I found.  I was making such statements as, “I’m afraid I’ll be late,” or “I wonder if I’ll have a flat tire,” or “I don’t think I can do that.” These are “little negatives” to be sure, and a big thought is of course more powerful than a little one.  But it must never be forgotten that “mighty oaks from little acorns grow,” and if many “little negatives” clutter up your conversation, they are bound to seep into your mind.  It is surprising how they accumulate in force, and before you know it, they will grow into “big negatives.” 

So I determined to root those “little negatives” out of my conversation.  I found that the best way to eliminate them was deliberately to say a positive word about everything.  When you keep asserting that things are going to work out well, good results do occur. On a roadside billboard I saw an advertisement of a certain brand of motor oil.  The slogan read, “A clean engine always delivers power.”  So will a mind free of negatives.  Therefore flush out your thoughts, give yourself a clean mental engine, remembering that a clean mind, even as a clean engine, always delivers power. So to overcome your obstacles and live the “I don’t believe in defeat” philosophy, cultivate a positive-idea pattern.  What we do with obstacles is directly determined by our mental attitude.  Most of our obstacles are mental in character.

“Ah,” you may object, “mine are not mental, mine are real.” Perhaps so, but your attitude toward them is mental.  What you think about your obstacles largely determines what you do about them.  Form the mental attitude that you cannot remove an obstacle and you will not remove it.  But when your mind becomes convinced that you can do something about difficulties, astonishing results will begin to happen.  All of a sudden you discover that you have the power you would never acknowledge.

 

 

Love is the greatest healing power of all.

‘’Love is what we were born with.  Fear is what we learned here.’’ Marianne Williamson.

LOVE BEGINS WITH YOU: Your inner voice is where your story of love begins: It is hard to feel worthy of love if someone is criticizing you all the time and especially if that someone is talking in your head.

True love isn’t about being inseparable; it’s about two people being true to each other even when they are separated.

Love and kindness is a way of living.  Where there is love, there is no judgment.  Where there is judgment, there is no love.

Love is the great transformer ,  the greatest medicine to heal the whole world.

Love is something you and I must have.  We must have it because our spirit feeds

upon it.

Love is the greatest healing power of all.

Love fuels passion, hope and desire. It generates creativity giving us purpose and making us feel alive.

All your love matters and makes a difference.

Love is accepting others as they are, allow them to be themselves and stop trying to change them.

From  Neale Donald Walsch, in his best-selling series Conversations With God, he shared one of the most profound solutions to any challenge you may ever be faced with. He gives us one of the most powerful 5-word questions you will ever hear. This is a question that you can ask yourself if you ever feel a need to react to someone else’s unkind behavior. Here’s the question: What would LOVE do now?

You can ask this question the next time you feel challenged to respond or react to someone who, you feel, has wronged you.

You see, love truly is ALL THERE IS. The Beatles sang.

Love is the path of joy. Love is the building block of life. Love takes the form of thoughts, words and deeds. Choosing love is like exercising any muscle. The more it is repeated, the easier it becomes.

The Art of Getting Along

Sooner or later people, if they are wise, discover that life is a mixture of good days and bad, victory and defeat, give and take.

They learn that a person’s size is often measured by the size of the thing it takes to get his or her goat. . . . that the conquest of petty irritations is vital to his or her success.

They learn that they who lose their temper usually lose.

They learn that carrying a chip on their shoulder is the quickest way to get into a fight.

They learn that buck-passing acts as a boomerang.

They learn that carrying tales and gossip about others is the easiest way to become unpopular.

They learn that everyone is human and that they can help to make the day happier for others by smiling and saying “Good morning!”

They learn that giving others a mental lift by showing appreciation and praise is the best way to lift their own spirits.

They learn that the world will not end when they fail or make an error; that there is always another day and another chance.

They learn that listening is frequently more important than talking, and that they can often make a friend by letting other people tell their troubles.

They learn that all people have burnt toast for breakfast now and then and that they shouldn’t let their grumbling get them down.

They learn that people are not any more difficult to get along with in one place than another and that “getting along” depends about ninety-eight percent on their own behavior.

”Your life has unlimited possibilities.”

Positive change will happen in your life when you decide to take control of what you do have power over, instead of craving control over the uncontrollable.

No matter what happens, YOU control what the meaning is, and what to do with the meaning you give to the circumstances around you.

If you are sad about what’s going on in your life right now, pause and just remember one permanent fact ,everything changes, and tomorrow might be different. However good or bad a situation is now, it will change.  That’s the one thing you can count on.  So embrace it, and realize that change happens for a reason.  It won’t always be easy or obvious at first, but in the end it will be worth it.

The way to overcome negative thoughts and destructive emotions is to develop opposing, positive emotions that are stronger and more powerful.  Listen to your self-talk and replace negative thoughts with positive ones, over time you will change the trajectory of your life.

No matter what happens or does not happen, what comes or does not come, resolve that you will extract from every experience of the day something good, something to empower yourself and hang it up in your memory , like a beautiful piece of art to look at it when you feel down.

Life is not about what you could do, it’s about what you will do.  Write this down: “My life has unlimited possibilities.”  Choose to find these possibilities in everything that comes your way, and no problem will ever be able to conquer you.

Life is about making a difference, and you will never run out of ways to do that.  Life is what you choose to make it.  You have unlimited power over your mind, not external objects and events. Have a little faith in yourself and you will find the source of strength you need to move mountains.

  Hi guys, thanks for reading my press release. I have tried this new form of marketing for facebook and I have been able to recruit at least 1 person per day into IBO Toolbox. I basically send a warm greeting introducing myself and expressing my passion for online marketing and how I love connecting with positive minded people. I do this about 30 times per day and the results shocked me.

   Usually when you send facebook text messages, most marketers just ignore or mark as spam but with voice messages they are more inclined to listen to what you have to say. When a person can hear your voice, they can sense if you are truly genuine or just interested in playing the pitching game.

  If you are part of any facebook groups, then you probably have seen nothing but just a bunch of bizops everywhere. Even if you have tried to promote your opportunity its still hard to get noticed. So with this voice messaging tool you can really give other marketers a reason to want to connect with you.

I hope my press release has been helpful to you and if we are not already connected on IBO feel free to add me.

Best wishes,

Davin

Some Relationship Truths.

When we sit, we open our own treasure house. Rather than do this, however, most of us first seek to find the treasures another person can provide. We calculate their value to us. When we approach relationships in this manner, we are coming as beggars, seeing the other as a source of supply. When we can enter a relationship with our treasure house already open, there is no end to the wonders we can find, both within and between ourselves and another.
~ Brenda Shoshanna

If you want love, give love.  If you want friends, be friendly.  If you’d like to feel understood, try being more understanding.  It’s a simple practice that works.

Some people will test you, some will use you, and some will teach you; but most importantly some will bring out the best in you.  Learn to see and accept the differences between these people, and carry on accordingly.

If your relationship with yourself isn’t working, don’t expect your other relationships to be any different.  Nobody else in this world can make you happy.  It’s something you have to do on your own.  And you have to create your own happiness first before you can share it with someone else.  If you feel that it’s your partner’s fault, think again, and look within yourself to find out what piece is missing.  Your partner can never ‘complete’ you because you are already whole.  The longing for completion that you feel inside comes from being out of touch with who you are.

Forgiveness is not saying, “What you did to me is okay.”  It is saying, “I’m not going to let what you did to me ruin my happiness forever.”  Forgiveness is the answer.  It doesn’t mean you’re erasing the past, or forgetting what happened. It means you’re letting go of the resentment and pain, and instead choosing to learn from the incident and move on with your life.

Here are 5 ways to become the person you love.

 

  1. Stop judging, and appreciate the beauty within you. – Judging yourself is not the same as being honest with yourself.  When it comes to living as a compassionate, non-judgmental human being, the only challenge greater than learning to walk a mile in someone else’s shoes, is learning to walk a lifetime comfortably in your own.  In every smile there is beauty.  In every heart there is love.  In every mind there is wisdom.  In every human being there is a soul, there is life, there is worth, and there is the ability to see all these things in everyone, including one’s self.
  2. Treat yourself the way you want others to treat you. – Accept yourself!  Insecurity is what’s ugly, not you.  Be you, just the way you are, in the beautiful way only you know how.  The way you treat yourself sets the standard for others.  You must love who you are or no one else will either.  And when you are truly comfortable in your own skin, not everyone will like you, but you won’t care about it one bit.
  3. Care less about who you are to others. – Don’t lose YOU in your search for acceptance by others.  Be aware that you will always appear to be a little less than some people prefer you to be, but that most people are unaware that you are so much more then what they see.  You are good enough just the way you are.  You have nothing to prove to anyone else.  Care less about who you are to others and more about who you are to yourself.
  4. Know your worth. – We often accept the love we think we deserve.  It makes no sense to be second in someone’s life, when you know you’re good enough to be first in someone else’s.
  5. Let go of those who aren’t really there. – There are certain people who aren’t meant to fit into your life no matter how much you want them to.  And the only ones truly worthy of your love are the ones who stand with you through the hard times and laugh with you after the hard times pass.  Maybe a happy ending doesn’t include anyone else right now.  Maybe it’s just you, on your own, picking up the pieces and starting over, freeing yourself for something better in the future.  Maybe the happy ending is simple letting go.
