Default You Have Everything You Need

"You have everything you need"

You have everything you will ever need to make your life all that it can be and more. It's there; right where it's always has been, deep down in your heart and soul. You need to tune out the doomsday crowd and turn on the powerful potential within that's waiting to be unleashed and see where it can take you.

Little dreams and even smaller plans are not what you are all about. No, you're about more, much more. Big dreams, big plans, big ideas implemented in a BIG time way - now that's what you were put on earth to accomplish.

Are you finally ready to make your life the super special, action-packed adventure ride it deserves to be? You bet you are! All you need to do is to start doing what you need to do, when you need to do it. And do it with everything you've got.

The easiest thing in the world to be is you. The most difficult thing to be is what other people want you to be. Don't let them put you in that position.

The Bottom Line: Why just make a living when you can make a difference within you and for someone else?

In each of us is the light of the road. We must adapt and overcome, we must maintain "reasonable unreasonableness" to prevent seeing obstacles created by us.

You are remarkably adaptable. If you've made it this far, you have already gone through many major changes in all aspects of your life. From being an infant to a toddler to a child to a teen to an adult, the first few years of your life were filled with constant change. You are certainly up to the task.

Almost always, the fear of change, the fear of the unknown, is worse than the change itself. Once you understand this, then you realize that it is easier to change than to resist change.

There are things you need to do, changes you need to make. Go ahead with them. Don't waste your energy fearing them or resisting them. Dive right in and do what needs to be done. Change is a constant part of life. When you fear it, it will happen anyway, out of your control.

When you embrace change, it will enable you to reach your goals.
Your dedication will not be a sacrifice. It will be an exhilarating experience
because it is an intense effort applied toward a meaningful end.

(Dr Thomas Dooley)
A rather interesting viewpoint, and a lot of truth in it. I am me, not what others want me to be. Examining a toddlers behavior in correct context we learn many things:

Each of you are individuals:

A tulip doesn't strive to impress anyone. It doesn't struggle to be different than a rose. It doesn't have to. It is different. And there's room in the garden for every flower. You didn't have to struggle to make your face different than anyone else's on earth. It just is. You are unique because you were created that way.

Look at little children in kindergarten. They're all different without trying to be. As long as they're unselfconsciously being themselves, they can't help but shine. It's only later, when children are taught to compete, to strive to be better than others, that their natural light becomes distorted.
Marianne Williamson

Be all that you can be. All that you want to achieve is in you right this very minute! The goal you seek is ALL IN THE PREPARATION of the goal. Mind and body MUST be in sinc or they BOTH LOSE.

Hope everyone had a GREAT DAY! Hope you met all of your goals and then some. I hope that if you had a trying day, the inner voice prevailed and you triumphed over what ever the issue was. ROCK ON!,,,,,,,,,,,,WISH YOU THE BEST!

Best regards,
