Discovering your hidden talents

Some people lead their entire lives never realizing their full potentiality. The good news is there is still time for you to achieve greatness and to fulfill purpose in your own life. The reason you still have this opportunity is because the Universe has a plan for you. Once you truly begin seeking what lies within your true self, your hidden talents for inner peace and success start to take shape.

If I were a rich man

In the musical, "Fiddler on the Roof," there is a song that is sung by the chimney sweeper that speaks of being rich and not having to work so hard all the time. While this may be the vision many hardworking men and women have in their lives, truth of the matter is that most wealth is not inherited but earned. Aspiring to become rich without commitment or deeds is a fruitless effort.

Do you give up easily?

If your life is difficult what are you declaring to yourself and the world? What steps are you taking to declare what you want to receive? It is important to say that you have it now; declare your desires in the present state. For if God is for you then who can be against you? Don't talk about how big your problem is but instead say how grand what you are seeking is materializing now.

Just when you think you can't

A close friend of mine told me how her father always motivated her when things seemed to go wrong or when she felt like giving up, "Can't is NOT a word," he would relentlessly remind her. It was this passion to always keep going that helped shape her into the strong woman she is today. In turn, she shared that same wisdom with her own children to inspire and encourage them.

Let it be

I understand that even in the best conditions, awful things happen. A loss of a loved one, unemployment, disease or accidents, among other disparities, can and will happen during our lifetimes. In fact, one or more of these events are almost guaranteed. We are, after all, mere mortals. The truth is that we are all born with our own expiration dates. Life is a priceless gift that should never be taken for granted yet on the other hand, it shouldn't be lived through anxiety and stress.
