Monday Miracle: Stretch

“Mind is the master power that molds and makes and man is mind, and evermore he takes The tool of thought, and, shaping what he wills brings forth a thousand joys, a thousand ills.

He thinks in secret, and it comes to pass, environment is but his looking glass.”  ~James Allen

What is your mental achievement looking glass reflecting to you?

Write down what you see in your mind’s eye right now.  Then, write in a second column beside that list what you will do that will stretch your achievement before the end of the year.  A goal without a deadline is but an empty wish, a vague longing.

Success is about the definite-no wishy, willy-nilly cowdropping pretending.  Be specific and clear and write a deadline.  You may discover that you may need assistance from a mentor or role-model.  Well, do that. Make the call, send an email, schedule an appointment.  Do it today!

Stretch, feel good.  Move along your definite path of success.

Planget Quiet: Just for You

It is time to relax, take a seat and remove the head mire in plangent quiet.

So often each day is full of frenetic movement,  help given without reserve, and mindless habits such that taking a rest is uncommon.  Yet, after exiting the womb, it is common for the baby to close their eyes and rest. Be like a baby for now; rest. Restore your mind and body.  Take a moment, right now, and relax and rest. Quiet, please.

Plangent quiet could be an oxymoron, a truly extreme juxtaposition of words. But, it this post, it is meant to remind you to relax in the place where you are right now. Delaying is not optional unless it  would thrust you into danger; then use caution but when you are safe, relax in the quiet. Injury to yourself or others is not the intent, but what is is the directive to safely take a moment to rest.

The adjective plangent means resounding loudly. Adding the word quiet to plangent implies a deliberate, resounding intention to be still and bask in the self-need for quiet for a moment. Take a few minutes then to kindle the spirit of hope, charity, love and passion-let it move into your being and cast out activity, worry, sadness, doubt, fear.

Be still, be quiet and contemplate you.

“The sole purpose of human existence is to kindle a light in the darkness of mere being.” ~Carl G. Jung

Miracle Monday: Potential

Have you thought about your potential?

Have you been told you’ve got potential? Well I have. My evaluator at a Toastmasters meeting at my Club, Dawn-Breakers, gave me that feedback after I finished my Ice Breaker speech. Those words made an indelible impact in my life. To shorten the story, hearing “You’ve got potential” as a speaker changed the course of my destiny. Because of my passion for words and a desire to encourage others, hearing someone assert that I had potential was the fuel I needed to jet into a different world.

You have got potential! Internalize those words on this Miracle Monday.

You’ve got potential! Say these words out loud to yourself and feel the boost you get from honoring the fact that you have potential.

YOU HAVE POTENTIAL! Write that down. Write at the top of the page, I have potential then list all of the areas, which I feel are unlimited, in which you have potential.

Now make it a Miracle Monday by looking at your expansive list and find one or two things that you have the strongest potential and then take that germinating potential and do something in that area. If it is to paint, paint something today. If it is to garden, go outside and play in the dirt today. If your potential (talent) is in fund-raising or sales, do that. You have this time TODAY to work on your latent potential. It was always there, now DO something about it.

There is nothing to lose here, just act. Act as if…act with freedom and abandon. Act without worry or concern about tomorrow, live and manifest your potential in magnificent power right now.  Be creative.  Think: I have no doubts, I have no regret…just be mindful of your mighty potential now.  Live your bliss, be in pure joy, deepen your inner happiness-recall this truth often, “You’ve got potential.”

Potentiality is your intrinsic right.

Your Miracle Monday is filled with potential. Seek your potential this Monday, live rightfully in your power, manifest your gifts.

You are a miracle, magnify your potential!
