THERE IS NO FAILURE!

THERE IS NO FAILURE!

 

-‘FAILURE does not exist…’

 

I don’t believe in FAILURE! I don’t believe that it Exist! I can’t even see or Imagine FAILURE. Why? Because, I believe that TRYING alone is Success! We tend to feel that if WE don’t receive Payment, Accolades, Rewards, Notoriety, Status, Stardom or Recognition for Our Endeavors, We haven’t Succeeded but in the TRYING itself We have Succeeded at doing something. TRYING is Doing! TRYING is Succeeding! TRYING is actually the Act of not Believing in FAILURE! That alone is Why One will TRY something… If You TRY at something, no matter what the outcome or what those around You might say about the outcome of Your TRYING, You, My Friend have SUCCEEDED…And, if You did not receive the outcome that You were searching for, by ALL means…Keep TRYING and SUCCEEDING because…

My Friend…My Reader, No matter what You think or have had Pressed upon You to Believe…

‘The Only FAILURE is Believing in FAILURE and not TRYING!’

 

THERE IS NO FAILURE!

The TRUTH…Nobody’s Listening! (Continued…)

The TRUTH…Nobody’s Listening! (Continued…)
As I wrote on yesterday, We ALL say that We want to have the TRUTH told to Us but We can’t seem to take it. It tends to be too much for a lot of Us. I feel that We have become so accustomed to the LIES and the telling of LIES to Us that We have come to a point where, even though, the LIES are hurting Us and keeping Us from progressing individually, relationally, socially, SPIRITUALLY, nationally and Worldly, that We are simply
comfortable in the LIES. Then, when We are offered or are given the TRUTH it sounds so foreign to Us that We tell Ourselves that it can’t be TRUE, ‘IT,’ as they say,
‘Hits Us where it Hurts!’ and We run from it because We don’t like the way the TRUTH makes Us feel. Our Toes ache, Our stomachs churn, Our Minds reel, Our Egos are bruised, We begin to question Ourselves and/or the TRUTH compels Us to look in the Mirror, with tears in Our eyes knowing that We should be questioning the LIES that We feel to be fact. So much consternation caused by the TRUTH but it’s what We need…

We awaken everyday of Our lives to LIES, whether through the media, Our family and friends, people that We meet and worst of ALL, the LIES that We tell Ourselves, when the TRUTH is in Our face beckoning to Us to accept it. We even attend Church, the very place where there should be nothing less than the TOTAL TRUTH and receive LIES. We fall for these LIES or settle for them because We want acceptance and the approval of
others in Our lives. We don’t want anyone to think that We are different or that We see things in a different way than they do, which would cause Us to be on the ‘outside’ of the circle.
(Oh, No! Can’t be on the outside of
the ‘Circle of Acceptance.’)
Everyone from Presidents, to Leaders, to Ministers, to Preachers, to Teachers, those that We are to TRUST, and Us, not telling the TRUTH so as to be accepted by the masses, a SAD case indeed…

But, those among the People, the ‘TRUTH TELLERS,’ who are far and few between in a world of carbon copies, the Ones that don’t allow the acceptance of the masses to keep them from telling the TRUTH…The Ones that know that the telling of the TRUTH will in time Free Us ALL from the LIES that plague Us…The Ones that don’t mind being called ‘Fools’ or ‘Different’ or ‘Unusual.’ The Ones that are told that they should ‘Just give the People what they want or what they can handle,’ which is what is hurting them anyway, and continue to offer the People the TRUTH, even when they hate it and are pointing the finger back at them for the telling of the TRUTH that ‘Stumped their Toes.’ The ones that those that don’t like the TRUTH, try to do ALL that they can to silence or to deter them from the continued telling of the TRUTH. The ones that see the TRUTH through the LIES in front of them and have to keep the Courage so as not to fall for the LIES themselves as they are telling the TRUTH…

My Friend…My Reader…Think about this. TRUTH or LIES? Which do You want to be told?

 

(To be continued…)

FAITH IS…

FAITH IS…

‘Your FAITH is what you believe, not what you know.’

                                                -John Spaulding

 

FAITH IS…Expecting something from nothing. FAITH IS…Expecting those things that are not yet in the Natural. FAITH IS…Believing in something that seems ‘unbelievable.’ FAITH IS…Giving ALL to GOD and allowing HIM to take care of you, with no assistance from you. FAITH IS…Being ignorant to the impossible. FAITH IS…Stepping out to do the impossible and knowing that it is possible. FAITH IS…Praying to GOD and leaving your request with HIM ‘knowing’ that HE will answer in due time. FAITH IS…Confidence in yourself and what you are setting out to accomplish. FAITH IS…No worry about tomorrow. FAITH IS…Not just waiting but ‘Waiting Actively’ with patience, doing what you can do and knowing that GOD is and will DO the rest. FAITH IS…Quieting the voices of pessimists and listening to your Heart’s leading. FAITH IS…Knowing that you are enough just as you are and right where you are. FAITH IS…Always needed and should always be practiced. FAITH IS…What Heroes are made of. FAITH IS

FAITH IS

FAITH IS

FAITH IS

Exactly what you see after the 3 little dots…

 

My Friend, exercise your FAITH every day.

Throw Your Heart…

 ‘The Heart is the symbol of Creative activity. Ignite the Heart with where You want to go and what You want to be and with that You will bring to fruition what You are visioning, with Your Heart leading. Throw Your Heart Over the Bar! That means, to throw Your FAITH over Your difficulty, throw Your Affirmation over every barrier, throw Your Visualization over Your obsatcles. Throw Your SPIRITUAL Essence over the bar and Your material self will follow in Victory. Expect the BEST, not the worst and You will attain Your Heart’s Desires. It is what is in the Heart of You, either Good or Bad, Strong or Weak, that finally comes to You…’

You Can’t Teach Them, If You Can’t Touch Them

You Can’t Teach Them, If You Can’t Touch Them

 

While attending a seminar for counseling at-risk youth, I heard one of the speakers say the above. It rang so true then and continues to ring true today. I thought of all of the training and text that I had read prior to hearing this statement and none of it made as much sense as ‘Touching Them to Teach Them.’

Throughout the years being a Youth Counselor, Foster Parent/Teacher and a Teacher, I have learned that you have to ‘touch’ the youth to teach them. You have to be able to approach them like you are one of them and not like you are above them or superior. The youth are so much more receptive to listening to you and learning from you if you are one that shows them respect, shows interests in what they are interested in and if you show that you are respectful of them and their ideals and ‘youth’ issues.

As adults, no matter what role we are playing in the youths lives, whether parent, teacher, mentor, guardian, minister, counselor, we have to approach them with the state of mind that we want them to see us as a caring individual that understands their way of seeing things. We can’t approach them with ‘heady ideas’ of being more intelligent than they are or that we are the ‘know-it-ALL’ that will ‘show them,’ because they will notice your approach and not only turn their ear away but also disrespect you.

The youth want us to be interested in their concerns about life, understand and know what music they listen to, they’re extracurricular activities, have discussions with them about life and all that it entails. And, be ‘REAL’ with them, telling them the truth. They want us to talk to them and not ‘AT’ them. They long for us to have FUN with them! As the adults we should be aware of this because these are all things that we want and need from others that we meet or interact with day to day. We have to show the youth that we are genuinely there for them by being ‘genuinely’ interested in them and what they are interested in.

Some adults have the idea that they cannot stoop to the level of the youth to teach them or to guide them to a higher level of knowing. To those adults I say, “GOD stoops to our level every day. HE reaches from Heaven daily to reach down to us and bring us ‘UP’ to the level HE wants us to reach.” So, are you BIGGER than GOD? Who are you to say you can’t stoop to a lower level for a minute amount of time to lift the youth higher?

Adults, the youth, the generations after us, need our guidance and teaching and we can only teach them and press upon them ‘higher learning’ if we reach out and touch them. So, whatever role you are playing in a youth’s life and I hope that you are playing a role in some youth’s life, somewhere, because the YOUTH includes ‘YOU’ and remember…

“You Can’t Teach Them, If You Can’t Touch Them!”

Be Watchful, But With Optimism…

Be Watchful, But With Optimism…

-“How can you expect success or victory when you are praying for it but at the same time expecting failure?…”

                                                                                                                                -Joel Osteen

When setting out on any undertaking or endeavor we have to be like a couple when they are expecting the birth of their child, they prepare themselves and everything around them for the arrival of the child, they are optimistic and excited, as they look forward to receiving the child into the World. They are preparing themselves for success and victory upon that child’s arrival. That’s how we should be when we step out on Faith and allow ourselves to become closely involved with another in a relationship. We should be watchful and cautious so that we don’t move too quickly; taking our time to get to know the ‘real’ person behind the façade we are attracted to but as we get to know that individual that we are interested in, we should be OPTIMISTICALLY WATCHFUL, not looking for the worst to come about or waiting to find out something negative about the individual. Our minds should be focused on ALL of the great and awesome things we will come to learn about the person. Especially, if the person is someone that we really like and are looking forward to establishing a lasting relationship with. I feel that if we do this or take upon ourselves, this state of mind, our relationships and lives will end up being much more happy, fun, lasting, Successful and Victorious.

Be Watchful, but with OPTIMISM! You’ll LOVE the feeling and the END result!

“My Sunshine, Thank You for coming in closer and allowing yourself to learn more about Me and being Optimistically Watchful. A Victorious relationship is ours…”
