On this day in 2012,  I said that a DVD of Will Powers would be ready for release the following December.  I did not keep to that timeline.  I failed.  No matter what events transpired in my life which could be used as an excuse for not meeting this deadline, I know that if I had focused on it, I could have achieved it. What  I've been doing is remixing songs but little work has been done on the book which will accompany the music. I am somewhat "lost" in the structure of the writing as well as what 'form' Will Powers should take.  The world is changing so fast in our communication possibilities that I am rethinking how Will Powers can be the most effective.

I also have to admit that I'm afraid of the responsibility of putting thoughts on paper. It takes quiet time to look deeper into my 'self'  to find the means to be effective in helping others reach their potential.  My own fear of failure keeps me from just "doing it".  We all have to free ourselves from the idea that the 'self' is a predetermined failure.  It is a constant battle that takes discipline.  We need to absorb the lessons of creating positive habits.  That discipline will give us the freedom to 
explore new parts of ourselves and others.  Experience has shown me I do have the answers which inspire others, I just feel like a phony sharing my insights if I am failing.  

As we head into 2014, we all have had years before us filled with both moments of clarity and moments of doubt.  We have to choose, prioritize, work with determination and persistence.  We all have to keep in mind that "Success is not a place at which one arrives but rather the spirit with which one undertakes and continues the journey."  I wish you luck on your path and hope you will share with me and others any stories of your successes as well as your failures.  Both experiences are of great value.  Together we make each other stronger.  Peace and Love Will Powers

What Is Necessary?

As we come to an end of 2012 let's ask ourselves what is important. The clock is ticking. Are you spending more time at work than ever before? Is this because you need the money, because you love your job, or because you do not want to face a life without real love? If the answer is not clear to you , might I suggest that you close your eyes and breathe in deeply thru the nose and exhale thru the mouth for no less than 5 minutes. Do not think about anything but your breathing. Set a clock and no matter what, keep the breathing going for 5 minutes. Do not let your mind wander. Concentrate only on the breath. This is not easy. The mind will want you to move, scratch your nose or to go get a pen and write something down that you forgot to do. Shut that voice off. At the end of the 5 minutes ask yourself what makes you happy. Listen to what your voice tells you. Keep in mind that you have created patterns of behavior which, on a certain level, are comfortable for you because you are in control. These patterns need to be shifted, changed, if you want to move forward into a life well lived. The changes in your patterns will enable you to become more of who you really are. As they say - "let go-let god." Make 2013 an adventure. By this time next year there will be a DVD of Will Powers. It'll include the songs from the Dancing For Mental Health Album, the videos and some surprises. I'd like to include some testimonials - so if Will Powers has served you in any way, please let me know. may health and peace and the quest to lead a life of fulfillment fill your next year. Will Powers

Make Self-Discipline Fun

The word discipline feels to most of us to be negative. It conjures up thoughts of punishment, of struggle, of being kept from that which is enjoyable. I want you to think of it positively. It is the path by which we can become 'heroes' in our own lives. So, we need to revisit our approach to taking responsibility for what it is that will truly make us happy. When we are emotionally attached to an idea, it is difficult to see that negative and positive are states of being that exist because of each other. By viewing everything as ultimately positive, that it is all for your benefit, you give yourself the power to approach any situation with the kind of attitude that can get you to your goals.

Make yourself some simple rules that you feel strongly you can keep to. Keep giving yourself more rules. As you do this you will come to discover that through rules, boundaries, you can find your real freedom.
It's that time of year for resolutions - start now: Happy New Year

Prepare for 2011

"When you've finished getting yourself ready in the morning, you must go get the planet ready."
antoine de saint exupéry, le petit prince

This is a pivotal time for everyone, for the planet, for the future of consciousness. It's easier to think that we are victims to
those more powerful, than to consider the power we have to change our own circumstances and that of others. Please take
5 minutes before the year moves ahead, and look in the mirror and ask yourself the following questions:
how have I improved in the past 12 months?
how have I improved the lives of others?
do I want to be happy?
what will it take to make me feel like I have meaning on this earth?
when will I start to make my life, as well as the lives of others,
better than it was in this past year?

we are all connected. Treat others as you would want to be treated. If you are having a hard time with this, then
google what you can volunteer for in your neighborhood and just go once to see how it will affect you as well
as those you have a taken a step toward helping.

where there's will, there's a way
happy new year

Time to say - Start Now

It's been a year since I last posted. Over the past 12 months I've given thought to the Will Powers book I will do. I would appreciate any thoughts you'd like to share, as well as any experiences where you had new approach to overcoming any obstacles. I told myself last year I would do this book and I have not started page 1.
What keeps me from working on it; from getting it done? I'm like everyone else who dreams and does not take action to make the dream a reality. The difference might be that I know there are no excuses. Either one does what one says they will do or they do not. How many stories have you heard of the individual doing what seemed impossible? Why do we think we will not have a
healthy, happy relationship that can last? What cause can we give ourselves to that will help us to find our self?
We think we can put it off. We think if we put it off, then maybe one day it will just happen. Well that's not possible.
I am the opposite side of the coin of Fate. I know I am only 1/2 of the coin and we have to work together --- Will Powers and Fate. Fate can change based on Will --- that's why we are in the body. All of this takes sacrifice. It takes concentration. It takes passion. So ask yourself as you start a new year - Do you want to climb that ladder of enlightenment? Do you dare to be great?

HAPPY NEW YEAR

It has been 5 months since I last posted. The world has experienced a shift. A needed shift. Without this dramatic economic news would Barack Obama have been elected? Would we question, as we do now, what is truly important to us if we had not been forced to see the possible downfall of a nation that was built on the idea of people helping each other to reach their full potential? It is time as the year comes to a close, to reflect on what we've given our attention to in the last year. It is time to make a list of what it is important to focus on in this coming year. Start with a list. Don't just think about it. Get a paper or pen or write it on your computer. Keep it simple. Give yourself 5 goals for the upcoming 365 days. Many of you have problems with
keeping a roof over the head of your family, of feeding yourself as well as your loved ones. Please remember you are here for a purpose. You need to find out where you can get help. You need to accept that road will not be easy but if you want to
change your life as well as the lives of others, you need to have a plan. That plan might change, however you have to start somewhere. If you are lost, please do not hesitate to write me and explain your circumstances so that I might be able to give
a direction of how to get yourself going ....
May we move ourselves and others into a better world for 2009 and beyond

happy new year

CHANGE YOU - CHANGE THE WORLD

WORDS FROM THE MASTERS

I cannot help to bring about a different world until I as an individual have
changed fundamentally. To see that one must begin with oneself is to realize
an enormous truth; but most of us over look it; we easily brush it aside
because we are concerned with the collective, with changing the social
order, with trying to bring about peace and harmony in the world
Krishnamurti
This message was sent to me today by a friend. It serves as a reminder that focusing on your own self improvement will not only change you, but the people in your life. Stop thinking about how to change any other person than yourself. If you have a problem doing this, then I suggest repeating the following chant for 5 minutes in the morning upon waking and 5 minutes in the evening before going to sleep. Simply repeat:KYMOYOB
Keep Your Mind On Your Own Business

let me know how this works for you

WHERE ELSE IS WILL ?

letting you know that Will's videos and posts will also appear at
http://www.myspace.com/willpowersinstitute

we look forward to spreading the word as much as we can so that anyone and everyone will know they have a community of support.

DO YOU BELIEVE IN MIRACLES?

When one has a belief system, it is based, in fact, on doubt. How can there be those who believe if there are not those who doubt? Opposites attract. Take yourself out of that circle of drama. How? Be a person of faith. Faith does not leave room for doubt. With faith, one knows that the out come of any situation is in the long run for your benefit and thus the benefit of the world. A person of faith knows that with commitment and hard work comes the true connection we all want to have not only with ourselves but with others. In times where it appears that we have little control over destiny, like the war we are fighting, it is easy to forget that just living your life honestly will help bring about a better world. It will. Practice at thinking about how everything that goes on in your life and in the world is all part of the drama that is necessary for us to become who we really are. How you deal with every second of your life will determine the amount of joy, love and health that you not only can experience, but which you can also pass on to others. Also keep in mind that once you achieve this state, it will not last forever. One has to work continually to keep it. Sometimes you can just experience it by closing your eyes and concentrating on your breathing. Loose all thoughts. Try to get your ego to shut up. Your ego wants you to believe that you have control. You do, but only by letting go of your ego. Some of you know what I am talking about and some of you do not. Another way you can experience this state is by offering to help others: give to time to Habitat for Humanity or any organization that brings you intouch with others who are also thinking that they want their lives to be about more than themselves. It is about YOU and that means the you in everyone. Put on some music and dance around your house. You will naturally absorb what I am saying.

SHOW YOUR SUPPORT

It is important for you to show others that you care about them. It is important for you to say positive things about whatever someone does that you think will enhance their progress, their goals. This does not mean that one should not express any criticism, however, criticism done in an environment of trust where you have made it clear that there are also positives, is the most effective, and most loving way to make your point. Criticism should not be made without offering as well what you think can be done to help the person or the situation.

For example: If Mary wears clothes that you think do not enhance her natural assets, don't just tell her that you think she has no style or that you think she is tasteless. Why not go shopping with her and point out clothes you think would be good for her purchase. Suggest a 'pattern interrupt.' See if you can get Mary to go out with you in her new clothes so that she can experience how others might see her differently than before. Also tell Mary to watch this great video on UTube: send this link to any one you think needs it:

Laugh Therapy

Have you noticed that comedians live longer? ...Bob Hope, George Burns , Phyllis Diller....
think about it - those people who are able to bring themselves joy as well as give it to others often live and work till they're almost 100 years old!

How many jokes do you know? Do you share even one joke a week with a family member or friend?

Why not? I suggest you start a joke journal. It will lift your spirit and those of others. It is another way to excercise your belief that humor will help one lead a fuller life.

How about sending me a joke?

LOVE LOVE LOVE

Thanks to all of you who lifted me up not only be emailing me, but by letting me know that the Will Powers 'code' of asking for help when you need it, is part of everyone's process. There is a reason that my name is NOT Will Power. Everyone needs help at one time or another and it's great to give as well as to get. Everyone out there is my valentine and I hope I can be yours. None of us are alone if we reach out to others.

WHAT HAVE YOU LOST?

I wrote on this blog last on January 7th, however the last blog that appears is Dec. 29th. Since the first of the year, I had written a number of 'lessons' which I was quite pleased with. When I visited the blog to check for communications, I discovered all my writings from the first of Jan. 2007 had disappeared! I tried checking a number of different ways to find them again. No success. I moped about this for a bit. My insides became quite agitated. I felt frustrated that time was lost and that I might have disappointed people who needed to hear from me in the new year. I was upset with myself for not having back-up. I continually beat myself up about it and felt I no longer wanted to write. I was thinking and feeling this way and I AM WILL POWERS. What does this mean? No matter how spiritually evolved we are, we will all be tested to see what our strengths and weaknessess are. No one in their body can escape the fact that at any moment one can fall from GRACE. To persist in your pursuit of being the best possible you, there will be all sorts of situations that happen which appear to destroy the progress you have made. You don't have to let it. You can welcome it as a chance to become stronger, better, more loving human beings. I re- read many of the comments sent to me. I appreciate the power of the empowering we give each other. From the blog, one might think I, Will Powers, am the source of help to empower others, however it is you that empower me with your acknowledgement. I needed it during this time of confusion and disheartenment. Keep in mind that anyone can do it for anybody and that You have the power to help others with a simple acknowledgement.

WHAT DO YOU HAVE IN YOUR HEART?

We are now about 48 hours away from 2007. Have you taken inventory of the last year? Have you made new goals based on that inventory? Are you giving yourself reasonable goals for the time you want to achieve them in? Are you in touch with your inner spark? It is this spark that releases your drive and gives you the energy to accomplish getting what you want. Have you accepted that a change in your thinking will change your career, your personal relationships, your level of appreciation for your life? It is time to Give Yourself Away. If you think more about giving than getting, you will accomplish more. Practice being thankful. Greatness comes from your contribution to others. We are all connected. You must have conviction if you are to tap into unlimited power. Look not only for your own potential, but the potential in others. Be aware of what causes people to have the responses they do. Every person can find solutions or they can aggravate the situation. Do you want to have a meaningful life? Ask yourself if you want others to have a meaningful life as well. What do you have in your heart? If optimism is not there, then you need to change that now for yourself as well as for others who you do care about. It is a new year. Start the new you
NOW.

DARE TO BE GREAT

We are coming upon a new year. Have you spent time looking back over the past 12 months to see what you have accomplished? Do you think about the moments that you felt a goal was achieved? Close your eyes and enjoy that success.
Give yourself credit for your achievements. If you feel you did not succeed in any way, have you asked yourself why? Have you taken an inventory to see what you could change? It is time to release the patterns that no longer serve you. First you must identify those patterns. You have to release the past and think about how you can move forward. Remember who you really are. Give yourself a deeper sense of acceptance, self-trust, confidence. COGITO ERGO SUM. "I think, therefore I am." Go to the mirror and say those words out loud. You can manifest your thoughts because your thoughts are you. Begin your day this way. End your day this way. It will help you to find the path to your goals. You are not alone. Ask for help if you cannot find your direction. Give help to others who ask of you. In a few days we enter into 2007. If you have not started a list of what you would like to achieve, then do it now.

You Are The Artist

Art is meant to transform us. We are all artists if we chose to see ourselves as such because Life itself is a work of art. Art can be the way you live, the actions you take, what you do every day in the creation of who you are. This is a very powerful thought. In seeing how You can chose to make your life your art, you empower others to do the same. If you are in a situation that does not make you feel good about who you are, why not paint another picture?

LOVE

If you had to choose just one thing that you feel helped you the most with your own success, what would you say it was?

This is a question that was just sent to me. The answer: Love. First, love of myself. I wanted to give myself the life I dreamed of. I did not want to spend time frustrated and angry. I wanted to enjoy my time on the planet. Loving yourself means having respect for the gift of life. Secondly, loving others. When you think about how what you do can serve others as well as yourself, then you are not only strong in your faith that you will succeed, you are kept strong by the notion that what you are doing could help someone else. Third, loving the challenges that every day brings. Many people think they have problems. They are overwhlemed. How different their life would be if they saw their struggles as opportunites to make themselves stronger, wiser, and more compassionate. Like John Lennon said: "Love is the answer."

HOLIDAY TIME

This is a time to remind ourselves of what there is to be grateful for. Concentration on the positive will increase the good in your life and those around you. Negative attracts negative. It is also a time to look back at the last year objectively and to ask yourself if you think the quality of your life has improved to the degree you want it to. Make a list of exactly what you would like to happen in the next year. Then ask yourself what can you do to make that happen. Be honest. The process of getting what you want starts with You, not with anyone else. If you are not clear about what you want and what you are willing to do to get it, then it is highly unlikely you will succeed. Listen to your inner voice. Stressing about what could be will not help you. Blaming others will not help you. Asking for help from people who are capable of helping and who you are able to serve in some way, will bring solutions to problems. Start a list now. Do not wait until Dec. 31st to make resolutions for the new year. If you have a specific problem in reaching your goals, I would like you to write to me so that I might be able to point you in the direction that will get you there. I might want to post it as others could have similar questions, so let me know if you don't want me to.

get ready for tomorrow today

WHAT IS PERSONAL POWER?

No matter if you say you can or you can't, you will be right.
Think that if you can't, you must.

It's not what happens that determines the quality of life. The difference in the quality of your life is what you DO about what happens.

Belief in yourself equals your ability to practice self discipline.

For things to change, you must change. What keeps you from change? FEAR. What is fear?

F E A R = Forever Evading Another Reality

Keys to overcoming fears:
1. Identify it
2. Analyze it
3. Be willing to accept the worst
4. Be willing to take action
5. Take action

Ask yourself: what caused or created your fear? what benefit do you get from it? Why is now a good time to be free of your fear?

Only by facing your fears can you to tap into your personal power which is the key to a successful life.

Personal Power is:
1. The ability to act. The universe only rewards action.
Fatigue can make cowards. Find your energy.
2. Skill - decide what you want exactly
3. Strategy - know how what you want will help other people fill their needs

Practice makes perfect!

You Can Be the Bridge to a Better World

Think of yourself as a bridge builder. Drop your bias, your preconceived notions of who someone is. If we want to change the world into a place which is peaceful and plentiful, then we have to begin by changing ourselves into a people who see each other equally. We need to look out the window at others and acknowledge that we have ideas about other people which are tainted by what we have heard of them. If you are serious about wanting a world that is a supportive environment for reaching our fullest potential, then you need to have faith that this can happen. It is not beyond you. It is part of you. See how rich or poor, white or black, that all people have a brokenness and pain. Reach out to people who are hurting without distinction.
Be not left wing or right wing - be the whole bird. Respond to others needs without distinction.
Start by being a good listener . It is critical to have love. If you lay down at night and you have no peace, no joy, no contentment, you are impoverished. Finances cannot remedy this. They offer no solution to our need for love, appreciation, friendship and family. Remember our commonality: we are all struggling. It is the common denominator. As different as we are on many things, the bottom line issues are the same. Practice this and you will have a better sense of self that will bring you closer to your true goals.

Answering You

I have gotten comments which I would like to respond to however, often, there is no email reply address given to do that. If the door only swings one way, how can we communicate? I have to assume that one of your problems if you are someone who does not want a response to a complaint or a question, is that you do not want to hear an answer. You do not want to mess with your own 'belief' system. It is helpful in life if we remember that there is always more than one point of view, more than one truth. Below is the only negative email from someone called Friend Electric that I have gotten. I want to answer it as I would want to answer positive ones.

hi,
I own the vinyl version of this album, and I bought the cd version to get rid off the vinyl, but.. it doesn't work!!
You may ask what's the reason? I tell ya: the cd is unlistenable because it's mastered from vinyl and has a 50-Hz-hum all over! That's not what I expect from quality work.
thanks

Posted by friend electric to Will Powers at 9/12/2006 05:48:10 AM

For Friend Electric:
I baked my tapes and transfered them to dat. I went to London and worked with Karl Wallinger of World Party to remix.
Therefore if you got a cd which you consider unlistenable, it is not because it was mastered from Vinyl. Did it come from www.cdbaby.com? or from some where else? If you would like to send me the CD you got - I would be happy to replace it with another.

Instead of a complaint where you assumed you were not given what you think you deserve, why not discuss the problem?
Is this something you do in your life? If so I suggest you look at where that leaves you - angry and unsatisfied. You have other options. If you tell someone of a problem, it is productive to suggest what the solution would be.

for any comments or suggestions - please email will@willpowersinstitute.com

thank you in any case for taking time to come to the blog and let me know you are there - it keeps me going.

DO YOU WANT TO BE ALONE?

I recently met someone who told me that they had been desperately unhappy for the past three years. This person lives in a beautiful part of America, is intelligent, handsome, funny, kind, healthy and only 32 years old! Why would someone like him not be excited about life every day when he wakes up? Was it his job? No, he likes his work. Does he feel underpaid? No. Does he have a nice place to live? Yes. So what is wrong? He is lonely. Why would a young man like him not have someone to share life with? I knew that whatever I told him, he already knew. So why does he persist in living his life unhappily without the Will to change it?
Sometimes we don't know HOW to change ourselves so that we can get what we want . It all seems overwhelming. If this is the case, I suggest THREE STEPS. The first step is to make your bed every morning after you get up. Do it immediately after you get out of bed. This is a simple action that you have to make a commitment to do EVERY DAY. When you start your day in this way you're telling yourself that you are going to be positive about the rest of your day. You must make this effort in self discipline if you truely want to change your life. There is no reason that making your bed every morning cannot be performed. As you are making the the bed, visualize the person you want to live with. Ask yourself if the person you want would like to live in your home with you. If you think your home is a mess and you would not want to bring anyone there, then spend 30 minutes everyday organizing your home. Within 2 weeks you should have a place that reflects an environment someone would want to live in. If you would do this for the one you love to be happy, then why not do it for yourself? Your home is a reflection of how you feel about yourself. Take charge of it and you will begin the process of taking charge of your life. If you leave for work in the morning and have not made your bed, if you leave your clothes on the floor, dishes in the sink, etc., you are sending out a message to the world that you do not care about yourself. Why should anyone care about you if you do not care about yourself? If you want love, you have to give love - first to yourself. If you cannot do this, I do not think your chances of ever having a mutually loving relationship will ever happen. So you need to ask yourself : "What is my investment in being alone?" Look in the mirror when you ask yourself this. If you want a partner but can't even put forth the effort to make your bed once a day, then how much do you really want someone?
Once you are in the 'Habbit' of making your bed, the second step is physical exercise.
It doesn't matter if it is just 5 minutes. It doesn't matter if it is just a fast walk. You must begin to do something physical for yourself. The important part is that you give yourself a time limit that you keep to which is realistic. Is there any reason you cannot devote 5 minutes a day to some form of exercise? After 2 weeks of 5 minutesa day, then push yourself to 10 minutes. I can't say this enough times: Self Discipline is the key to success, happiness and fulfillment of your dreams. It is important to have a schedule and to keep it. Make a promise to yourself. If you cannot keep your promise to yourself, how can you keep a promise to anyone else? Everyone can have love. It takes effort.
The third step is to put yourself 'out there' in a sincere way to meet people. For example, if you like learning about ceramics, take a class. Maybe you want to learn a language or even try country and western dancing. Do something that even if there was no one in that class who interested you romantically, you would enjoy learning something. You will meet others in the class and one never knows who they might meet through new acquaintances with which you have something in common. If there are no classes in your community that interest you, there might be volunteer opportunities where you can help others: a buddy program, helping the blind by reading, delivering meals, etc. By putting yourself out into the world and by putting love into the world, you will get love back.

These 3 steps must be taken if you do not want to live alone. Nothing will change till you change. Life does not go on forever. There is only so much time on this planet and it is up to you to make it your paradise or your hell.
You do not have to be alone. It is a choice. If you are willing to drop whatever 'investment' you have in seeing yourself as a loser and turn that into an investment into making yourself a "winner" you will find whatever help you need in making the changes to do so.

Here's Help Getting What you Want

Ask specifically
Ask someone who can help you
Create value for either the person you are asking help from or show them how your intention is to create value for others
Ask with a faith that their helping you will help them
If you get a no, keeping asking elsewhere

Lost? Try Modeling!

History is full of people who achieved amazing things by sheer will and persistance. If you think you cannot attain a goal you have set for yourself, have you tried picking someone in history or someone in the working field that you want to be in and looked at how they fulfilled their dreams? The path is already there for us. Look at how others before you got there. MODEL yourself after them. If you have not read Benjamin Franklin's AUTOBIOGRAPHY then I suggest you do so. When one looks at how someone else achieved success, you will see that there are 'habits' of highly effective people that you too can use to get what it is that you want.

IT IS UP TO YOU

A number of months have passed since last communication. What has changed in your life? Have you taken on the responsibility of making your dreams come true? Or, have you continued to invest in behavior that keeps you from your goals? If you have, then look at how quickly time has gone by and what you might have accomplished had you started on your path when you first came to this blog. Take this time to review what is better in your life than 3 months ago. What have you done to make changes? There are ups and downs. Remember the feeling of having a richly full minute, hour, day, week, or better yet, month. Success comes from self control. I know that when we do not practice control over what we eat, or over what we say, that we end up feeling like a failures. We don’t ‘Get Away’ with anything. So, what simple action can you take to improve yourself? Remember there is no quick fix. Practice makes perfect. The cliché is a truth. Yesterday I met someone who lives her life in fear of cancer. She does not have it, however she thinks about it very often. She has an investment in thinking that because she will die of cancer she need not address the real issues in her life that make her feel she is dying. This is dangerous. Your mind is the most powerful aspect of you and it is possible to cause bad things to happen as well as good things based on how you direct your mind. It is up to you.

I would like to post some stories on the blog about what people reading this are doing to change their lives or lives in their communities so please respond to will@willpowersinstitute.com with any stories you want to share.

Define Your Purpose



Your life must have purpose to be meaningful. Picture your life as a rubber band. You can allow it to dangle in its natural state, or stretch it out just short of breaking. The outer limit of your achievement and contribution to living must be your PURPOSE. You have amazing abilities awaiting release and excercise.

Define your purpose and completely commit yourself to achieving this purpose. A definite purpose is an absolute necessity in order to make a contribution to life and an impact ON life.

Dare To Be Great!

Some of the greatest satisfactions in life, if not the most rewarding ones, are becoming what you wish to be, achieving what you desire and accumulating what you want to have. What kind of person do you want to be? Are you this kind of person at this very moment? Is your total life spectrum a meaningful one? What do you dream of in the inner recessess of your mind? What are you doing to make your dreams come true?

Think about these questions for 5 minutes. You can achieve and succeed if you believe and dare! Make up your mind, NOW.
If you want to take flight and land in the history books or on the planet of your unexplored dreams, is completely up to you.
It is not anyone else's fault if you do not make the choice to go for your dreams. Determine your objetive and move forward with an organized plan to achieve it. Only when power is controlled and channeled does it become creative and productive.

This is the right time to bring your neglected aspirations back into focus regardless of how old or outmoded you think they are.
Missed on your first try? So what Try again! Increase your determination. If you think are are working at it and not having success, then contact me. We will work on it together.

This takes backbone, not a wishbone.

Who are You?



if you do not feel you are the person you want to be, then ask yourself: "What is my investment in staying the way I am if I am not happy?" If you were to change, what is the worst thing that could happen? Look in the mirror when you ask yourself these questions. Be honest. There is no one who can stop you from being the person you want to be other than yourself. Do not tell yourself that you will "TRY" to change. Tell yourself that you "WILL" change. Be patient with yourself. Love yourself. Becoming the best that you can be does not happen over night. Enjoy the process. Put yourself on the road to success NOW.

TNT - TODAY NOT TOMORROW




Do you want to lose weight? Do you want to earn more money? Do you want a better relationship with your friends and family?
The only way to change is to start now. There may not be a tomorrow and if there is, then you are a "dollar short and a day late." Take those 3 letters, TNT, and say them to yourself 100 times a day. There is more fun in tomorrow if you know you've started on the road to your goals today.

Inspirational Reading

What you watch on TV, what you listen to on the radio and what you read can help make a stronger foundation for success.
Two books come to my attention that are examples of how our spirit can be uplifted. One Man's Leg by Paul Martin is the true story of a young man who tragically lost his leg and how this turned out to be his path to real success. The other book, Honeymoon with My Brother : A Memoir by Franz Wisner will help you to appreciate how it is possible to turn your problem into the opportunity of a lifetime. Both of these men were able to create new identities from situations that could have destroyed them. You can do the same.

Relationships

Success is based in large part on how you relate to people. It does not matter what your career choice is. It does not matter who you want as a mate or have as a mate. The ability to accept faults in others, the ability to show patience, the ability to speak with patience and care is the degree to which you can experience success. The tone of what you say can sometimes be more important than the words you use. It does not matter how talented you are if you cannot communicate well with others.
If you have a tendency to anger, then don't speak until you are in a calm place. Let yourself count to 10 before you speak if you are coming from a place that is negative. Be aware of how others respond to your voice as well as your actions.
