“Always dream and shoot higher than you know you can do, Don’t bother just to be better than your comtempories or predescessors……….Try to be better than yourself……………….”
” I am – just as you are – a unique, never repeated event in the universe. Therefore, I have – just as you have – a unique never to be repeated role in this world ”
1918 – 1993
“Set your sights high, the higher the better. Expect the most wonderful things to happen,not only in the future,but right now. Realize that nothing is too good. Allow absolutely nothing to hamper you or hold up in anyway”
Your life does not get better by chance, it gets better by CHANGE………………………………………………………
You can have RESULTS or EXCUSES not both.
“Remember , the thought you think and the statements you make regarding yourself determine your mental attitude. If you have a worthwhile objective, find the one reason why you can achieve it, rather than hundreds of reasons why you can’t”
“We lift ourselves by our thought. We climb upon our vision of ourselves. If you want to enlarge your life, you must first enlarge your thought of it and of yourself. Hold the idea of yourself as you long to be, always everywhere.

You are not born with confidence….. and that is a fact, you can obtain confidence due to the experiences you obtain during your life or you can change your beliefs regarding yourself and boost your self worth in a very short period of time, many people do belief that you are either confident or not from birth, this is not the case, However if you are one of these people who lack confidence, you will always feel that you are not truly happy and do not obtain success or obtain your goals, but this will be mainly to you giving up before you have the opportunity to get even close to happiness,success or your personal goals. (Due to your lack of confidence and self worth)
To achieve your goals and success in all walks of your life you must be confident, you must feel good in your own skin, which in turn will give you a happy life, to obtain confidence and self worth, you must concentrate on what you are good at,you must see yourself with better eyes, you must see who you really are, to only think of what you are not good at will only keep you stuck where you may be now, think more about the things you do like about yourself, the other points can be worked on over time.
To make this change, you must take all your positive thoughts and stick with them, negative thoughts are unwanted and you should not give them your time or personal space, when you tune into your positive thoughts about yourself, you will instantly feel better and your general body language to others will change, you show the outside world that you are happy with who you are, your abilities become better,because you now believe in yourself and this will grow day by day, the pathway to your goals will become clearer to you, because you have removed those storm clouds and your skies are now blue with rays of sunshine, you are carrying a lighter load, and you will feel this inside and it will show outside, this will widen your social circle and your networking in your working front will also benefit. Affirmations can help you here, you can tell yourself all day, anytime anyplace,its a conversation with yourself,private and personal.Affirmations can only strength your own positive thoughts, and increase your self confidence and self worth. . Some people have great problems with selving out the negative thoughts, it can be done in many ways and you have to find the one that works for you best, once you find your personal method it will be as easy as you walking, you automatically put one foot in front of the others, because it is so deeply set in your sub-conscious that we give it no thought its natural its in us, so we need to adopt the same system, think maybe everytime a negative thought comes along, imagine a no entry sign in your head,if you were driving you would not go down that street, so train your mind to do the same, you have to find what works for you best,but in everything else, if we don’t like something we don’t do it…………….so, we need to see these negative thoughts as something we obviously do not like, if you can attach them to something so very disliked by you, it will become easier and easier,and in a very short time it will be a natural action to just disgard that negative thought and send it on its way………………………………………a journey of no return.
” You know you are in love, when you can’t fall asleep because reality is finally better than in your dreams “
As we have talked about Love in my past posts, I thought a wonderful way to round it up was to look into St.Valentin,the most romantic day of the year for many, nearly upon us, after doing a little research I realised the there is not alot of romance about it directly, St Valentin was a Roman Priest many many years ago, at the time there was a Roman Empreror named Claudias the second, who persecuted the church at that time, one of his “great things ” was to forbid marriage to the young people, he felt that single men were far better soldiers for his army, than married men, they would not worry about there wives and families and therefore give him better results !! You have to remember from what we know it was a big possibility that they lived in a polygamy society in that period and rather than one man or one woman seemed to be the trend, but some were attracted to the christian faith, of course the church was in full agreement to marriage,and this is where the big problem came about,What should the church do ?
St Valentin was all into marriage,and truly believed in the vows of two people and held this ceremony in secret againist the law of the Empreror, in time Valentin was caught and imprisioned and tortured for his act againist the law of Empreror Claudius the second. There are many stories regarding his time in prison, at the time of his trial, one of the men to judge him was the father of a young girl who was blind, it is told that the priest St Valentin had prayed and healed to an amazing effect the young girl, she made a wonderful recovery and her father Asterius turned to christianity himself. However…………….. In the year 269 AD,Valentin was sentenced to a three part execution of a beating, stoning and finally decapitation all because he believed in marriage, the tale states that the last words he wrote were on a note to Asterius’s daughter he inspired the romantic day by signing it ” from your valentin” People believe that as a priest he gave his life for his believe and his faith in God – even to his death.
St Valentin is known as the Saint of Lovers, so when you share your valentin day,in the modern twist of today, give a little thought to St Valentin, who gave you this wonderful day to celebrate your love.
“Take away love and our earth is a tomb”
“Love is an element which though physically unseen is as real as air or water. It is an acting, living, moving force……it moves in waves and currents like those of the ocean ”
