Focus And Identify Your Talent

Focus is simply a way of mobilizing and concentrating power; therefore, to identify your talent you must first realize that everyone has been given a talent.

talent Focus And Identify Your Talent

Talent:“A special  natural ability, aptitude.”

“If a man has a talent and cannot use it, he has failed.  If he has a talent and uses only half of it, he has partly failed.  If he has a talent and learns somehow to use the whole of it, he has gloriously succeeded, and won a satisfaction and a triumph few men ever know.”–Thomas Wolfe

Realize that one does not have to be brilliant in order to be successful.  There are people with seemingly ordinary talents who have made extraordinary contributions to society.  Identifying your talent means determining where your strengths lie, then focusing these strengths on your objectives.

talent2 Focus And Identify Your Talent

“Talent is God given.  Be humble. Fame is man-given. Be grateful. Conceit is self-given. Be careful.”–John Wooden

“Talent is cheaper than table salt.  What separates the talented individual from the successful one is a lot of hard work.”–Stephen King

“God gives talent.  Work transforms talent into genius.”–Anna Pavlova
“Does anybody really think that they didn’t get what they had because they didn’t have the talent or the strength or the endurance or the commitment?”–Nelson Mandela

Talent comes in many forms, as talent is a form of intelligence. 

talent3 Focus And Identify Your Talent

According to Harvard scholar Howard Gardner there are seven basic types of intelligence.

1.  Logical-mathematical.

Logical thinking people string together thoughts in logical coherent patterns.  They clearly see the relationships between cause and effect, and use these relationships to solve problems.  Engineers, accountants, physicists, police detectives, as well as  business managers need this form of intelligence.

2.  Linguistic.

The skillful use of words to inspire, influence and instruct.  Can be useful in the fields of writing, broadcasting, public relations, counseling, politics, corporate leadership and other fields which require the use of words that influence people.

3.  Spatial.

This is the ability to visualize material objects, manipulate them in the brain, and then reproduce them in tangible form.  This could be the artist,  sculptor,  architect, carpenter, plumber, as well as the garment maker.

4.  Bodily/Kinesthetic.

Allows the mind and muscles to work together harmoniously.  This would be your athlete, dancer, juggler or surgeon.

5.  Interpersonal.

These people have a highly developed ability to “read” other people.   Interpersonal intelligence is an asset in any undertaking that requires interaction with other people, such as:  Teacher, psychologist, lawyers, detectives and salespeople.

6.  Intrapersonal.

Self-understanding.  The ability to look deep within yourself and make sense of what you see.  “Know thyself.”  Above all, be true to yourself, and as surely as day follows night, you will not be able to be false to anyone else.

7.  Musical.

The ability to make music is an invaluable social asset.  Having an appreciation for good music can enrich your life immeasurably.  These people usually have high levels of musical intelligence and are sensitive to pitch, melody, rhythm and tone.

talent1 Focus And Identify Your Talent

So to identify your talent you can focus on the intelligences above and keep moving around until you find which one you are most gifted at. Then be sure to use it in an exciting and rewarding way which will bring benefits to yourself and others.

Becoming A Willing Vessel

Becoming a ‘Willing Vessel’ comes from making a Commitment to God for any Cause of His Choice.  


Each of us needs to come to the understanding that God never willed that we should be less than what He has purposed us to be.  He has the ability to use each of us in any area of His choice,  if, we choose to become a ‘Willing Vessel.”

Remember this always:  If God can use a donkey, He can most definitely use you, provided you are acceptance to His will for your life and are willing and obedient to His instructions.

It has been said that God uses Willing Vessels, not brimming vessels.  There must be room at the top for the Spirit of God to lead you and guide you.  Because He is no respecter of persons, He can and will use you if you are Willing to take the sacrifice of obedience and commitment to the cause He has in store for you.


God is a people person and He is always thinking of His people and caring for their needs. He does this by using individuals, such as you and I.

There is no excuse for saying that you are not good enough.  Below you will find a list of ordinary people who were not perfect, but used by God for His purpose.

Willing Vessels List:

1.    Aaron, a servant who became God’s spokesman

2.   Abraham, a nomad, who became the Father of many nations

3.   David, a shepherd boy, who became a King

4.   Deborah, a housewife, who became a Judge

5.   Elijah, a homely man, who became a mighty Prophet

6.   Esther, an orphan, who became a Queen

7.   Gideon, a common laborer, who became a valiant Leader

8.   Hezekiah, a son of an idolatrous father, who became a King renowned for doing right             in the sight of the Lord

9.   Hosea, a marital failure, who prophesied to save Israel

10.  Isaiah, a man of unclean lips, who prophesied the birth of God’s Messiah

11.  Jacob, a deceiver, whose name became Israel, as well as, a refugee, who became the              father of 12 tribes of Israel

12.  James/John, fishermen, who became close disciples of Christ and were known as the            “Sons of thunder”

13.  Jeremiah, a child, who fearlessly spoke the Word of God

14.  John the Baptist, a vagabond, who became the forerunner of Jesus

15.  Joseph, a prisoner, who became Prime Minister

16.  Joshua, an assistant who became a Conqueror

17.  Mary, an unknown virgin, who gave birth to the son of God

18.  Matthew, a government employee who became an Apostle

19.  Moses, a stutterer, who became a Deliverer

20.  Nehemiah, a cup-bearer, who built the Wall of Jerusalem

21.  Nicodemus, a Pharisee, who became a Defender of the Faith

22.  Paul, a persecutor, who became the greatest Missionary in history and Author of                    2/3′s of the New Testament

23.  Peter, a businessman, who became the rock on which Christ built the Church

24.  Shadrack, Meshack and Abednego, Hebrew exiles, who became great Leaders of                    the Nation of Babylon




Therefore, in order for you to become a Willing Vessel you must be willing to give “all of yourself” by becoming a person of obedience, endurance, dedication, commitment and persistent in the Service of God.  As you continue to give of yourself, God will willingly give to you much more than you could ever imagine.

Both Justification and sanctification are God’s work, and while they can and must be distinguished, the Bible will not allow us to separate them. The reason being is that both are gifts of our union with Christ, also, within this double-blessing;  justification is the root of sanctification and sanctification is the fruit of justification.


Justification, in Christian theology, is God’s act of removing the guilt and penalty of sin while at the same time declaring a sinner righteous through Christ’s atoning sacrifice.

Sanctification is the act or process of acquiring sanctity, of being made or becoming holy.

“A tree is known by its fruit; a man by his deeds. A good deed is never lost; he who sows courtesy reaps friendship, and he who plants kindness gathers love.”–Saint Basil


“If you want to change the fruits, you will first have to change the roots. If you want to change the visible, you must first change the invisible.”–T Harv Eker




There is a lesson of the “seed” in its sending a shoot down so that it may be rooted and grounded, while at the same time it sends a shoot up to be the plant and flower that shall gladden the world.

The two growths are necessary.  Because without the strong root it would soon wither, as much activity fails for lack of growth in God’s ways.  The higher the growth up, the deeper must be the en-rooting.


Many forget this and therefore their work ceases to be permanent for God.  Beware of the leaves and flowers without the strong root.  They will wither and die accomplishing nothing for the Kingdom of God.


“Love is a fruit in season at all times, and within reach of every hand.”–Mother Teresa


“Self-respect is the fruit of discipline; the sense of dignity grows with the ability to say no to oneself.”–Abraham Joshua Heschel


“Wisdom and penetration are the fruit of experience, not the lessons of retirement and leisure. Great necessities call out great virtues.”–Abigail Adams


“Things don’t just happen in this world of arising and passing away. We don’t live in some kind of crazy, accidental universe. Things happen according to certain laws, laws of nature. Laws such as the law of karma, which teaches us that as a certain seed gets planted, so will that fruit be.”–Sharon Salzberg

“Without courage, wisdom bears no fruit.”–Baltasar  Gracian

“My favorite fruit is grapes. Because with grapes, you always get another chance. ‘Cause, you know, if you have a crappy apple or a peach, you’re stuck with that crappy piece of fruit. But if you have a crappy grape, no problem – just move on to the next. ‘Grapes: The Fruit of Hope.’”–Demetri Martin


We have each been given the seed to plant the roots which will bear the fruit of Justification and Sanctification in our lives, which, by the way is a ‘free gift’ from God by Christ’s atoning sacrifice.  Are your roots planted deeply?

Success: Becoming a Thoroughbred

Earning Success by becoming a Thoroughbred is done by becoming well trained, educated or well bred.  


Thoroughbreds are well trained horses or individuals who wear blinders when they run their race in order to keep their eyes focused straight ahead, allowing no distractions to get in their way.  In other words, they run their own race in order to win the Prize at the end.  While they're in the process, they lose sight of everyone else and head for the Prize or completed goal.

“When you call upon a Thoroughbred, he gives you all the speed, strength of heart and sinew in him. When you call on a jackass, he kicks.”–Patricia Neal



A Thoroughbred’s Alphabet for Success is as follows:

A.   Action

B.   Belief

C.   Commitment

D.   Dedication

E.   Enthusiasm

F.   Faith

G.   Goals

H.   Happiness

I.    Inspiration

J.   Judgment

K.   Knowledge

L.   Love

M.   Motivation

N.   Nonconformity

O.   Obedience

P.    Persistence

Q.   Quality

R.   Righteousness

S.   Steadfastness

T.   Thankfulness

U.   Uniqueness

V.   Vision

W.   Wisdom

X.    (E)Xcellence

Y.    Yieldedness

Z.   Zeal


“There can be no two opinions as to what a highbrow is. He is the man or woman of thoroughbred intelligence who rides his mind at a gallop across country in pursuit of an idea.”–Virginia Woolf


Acquiring success by becoming a Thoroughbred simply requires the correct track to run on along with action, a steadfast-persistent pace and straightforward focus, which never allows the word “Quitter “in his vocabulary.

Godly Wisdom: Receiving Wisdom From Above

Receiving Wisdom from Above can easily be gotten.  All you have to do is to “ask” for it.  Wisdom is never just given to us, there is a stipulation:  It must be asked for!


James 1:5 -”If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, that gives to all men liberally, and upbraideth not, and it shall be given him.”

Wisdom is seeing everything from God’s perspective.  It is in the knowing of the when and the how to use the knowledge received from the Lord.  You see, as the old saying goes:

“He who knows nothing, doubts nothing.”  

Yet, it is also true that he who ‘knows’ has a solid basis for his belief.

Many people around the world spend millions of dollars in search of wisdom, yet, it is always readily available to anyone who seeks its divine source.



Listed below are 10 ways in which to obtain godly wisdom:

1.  Fear God.    (Psalm 111:10)

2.  Hear God.   (Proverbs 2:6)

3.  Please God.  (Ecclesiastes 2:26)

4.   Look To God.  (Proverbs 3:13)

5.   Choose The Ways of God.  (Proverb 8:10-11)

6.   Take God’s Advice.   (Proverbs 13:10)

7.   Remain Humble Before God.   (Proverbs 11:2)

8.  Pray to God.   (Ephesians 1:17)

9.  Know and Acknowledge the Son of God.  (1 Corinthians 1:30)

10.Receive God’s Correction.   (Proverbs 29:15)


It is important that we learn to drink from the fountain of God’s Wisdom.  Unfortunately, many still tend to just rinse out their mouths because they try to live without the wisdom of the Bread of Life,  thereby, not understanding that they will die in their own efforts.

Receiving Wisdom from Above is freely given and can be freely received, however, the stipulation remains that you must “Ask for it,” there is no way around it.




“Be still and know that I AM God.”  This God, the One God, holds all of the Wisdom from Above.

Winning by Deciding to Win

Wining by Deciding to Win is not only a decision, but a commitment and challenge.


“Winning is great, sure, but if you are really going to do something in life, the secret is learning how to lose. Nobody goes undefeated all the time. If you can pick up after a crushing defeat, and go on to win again, you are going to be a champion someday.”–Wilma Rudolph

In Winning by deciding to Win it is important to remember that what you think, you eat.This is a good reason to feed on the Word of God. Real winners allow their hearts to draw near to God, Himself, and as a by-product they receive His promises deep within themselves.

“Winning isn’t everything, but the will to win is everything.”–Vince Lombardi



Guidelines for Deciding to Win:


1. Always Control Impulsiveness.

It’s important never to make a permanent decision in regards to a temporary situation.

2. Beware of Blind Spots.

Never allow your emotions to drive your decisions toward destruction.

3. Be Sure To Delegate with Confidence.

Always surround yourself with people who are wise and competent. Allow them to perform without becoming intimidated by their expertise.

4. Make it a Habit of considering all the options, then accept all responsibility for your final decision.

Stop, Look, and Listen to wise counsel, but be sure to sift it through your heart and pray for guidance before any final conclusions are made.

5. Never, Ever go to War where there are no spoils.

It’s important to choose your battles wisely and you must be assured that what you are fighting for is worth the price you will have to pay.

6. Acquire Accurate Information.

Get all the facts necessary before deciding a course of action. Conjecture will inevitably lead to some sort of crisis.

7. Take Time to Contemplate the Consequences.

Make sure you consider all options and their possible results before any action is taken.

8. Take Calculated Risks.

Never allow your expectations to exceed the practical potentials and realities of your resources. Hope for the best possible outcome or solution, yet be prepared for a loss.

9. Always be Cost-Effective with Your Time.

If your ‘return’ is not greater than the ‘investment,’ then the endeavor is not worth your time.

10. Survival: Survive in order to thrive.

Be sure to allow yourself a 10 percent ratio to be wrong, a 50 percent likelihood of betrayal, and a 100 percent commitment to survive it all.



“What winning is to me is not giving up, is no matter what’s thrown at me, I can take it. And I can keep going.”–Patrick Swayze

Like a stone skipped across the smooth, glassy surface pf a beautiful, clear lake, each decision that we make initiates multiple ripples.

“Faith without Works is dead.”–James 2:20

These guidelines will help you with your challenge of Deciding to Win. Winning will be more attainable when you are not on an aimless journey.

Freedom From Fear and A Paralyzed Mind

In order to have “Freedom from Fear and a Paralyzed Mind” you must start each day with a Positive Attitude.


Getting a Positive Attitude begins when you get out of bed and get dressed, the first thing you should get is your Bible.  Start each day with God on your mind.  You should never allow the world to close in on you and mold you into its image.

“God has not given us the spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”–2 Timothy 1:7

The best treatment for a mind paralyzed by poor self-worth, a negative attitude towards life, overwhelming circumstances and depression are as follows:

Six Steps to Freedom from Fear and a Paralyzed Mind 

1.   Believe you are a person of worth.

2.   Start the day with a positive attitude.

3.   Define your dreams.

4.  Know where you are going.

5.  Begin to think rightly.

6.  Keep your eyes focused on your dreams.

It may be true that Satan may knock you down, but know that you have the ‘power and the ability’ to get right back up – Immediately.


It is important to understand that it is impossible for you to “believe in others” unless you “first believe in yourself.”  Also, “you can’t believe in yourself” unless you first believe in God.  It’s important for you to realize that you are one of a kind,  a unique individual, a choice creation, you are special, and there’s not another like you.  You are ‘great’ because God is great and He created you.

A paralyzed mind doesn’t come from mind over matter!  If “you” don’t mind, then it won’t matter.  It comes from allow fear to attack and attach itself to your mind.

Clear your Paralyzed Mind from Fear with some Promises from God such as:

“My peace I leave with you.” –John 14:27

“Don’t let your heart be troubled.”–John 14:1

“My God shall supply all your needs.”–Philippians 4:19

“Fear not, for I am with you… I will strengthen you.”–Isaiah 41:10

Your life will move in the direction of your “most dominant  thoughts.”    The way you think will determine who you are and what you will become.

This verse should trigger the God-given power within you.  It will help you change your thinking habits and keep your mind “Free from Paralysis.”

“If your speaking is wrong, your believing is wrong.  If your believing is wrong, then your thinking is wrong.  If your thinking is wrong, your speaking is wrong.”


Freedom from Fear and a Paralyzed Mind radiates from a “calm person” with good thoughts who knows how to adapt!  Take every emergency leisurely.  Plant the soil of your mind full of good thoughts, and the crop you raise will be wholesome.  Remembering that all your problems will yield to the right “solutions.”

Word Power: Words Used by Women..

Words Used by Women have a secret power behind them.  


Because a woman has such an enormous influence over her family, she has also been given the strength and resources with which to build and enduring home and life, brick by brick.  Even so, women are quite different from men and will at times use certain words to display their feelings.

Because we understand that ‘Words’ have creative power in them, read and determine for yourself if there is life or death behind these words used by women.


 Words Used by Women:

1.   FINE.  This is the word women use at the end of any argument that they feel they are right about, but need to shut you up.  NEVER use “Fine” to describe how a woman looks.  This will cause you to have one of those arguments.

2.   FIVE MINUTES.  This is about half an hour.  It is equivalent to the five minutes that your football game is going to last before you take out the trash, so this can possibly be an even trade.

3.  NOTHING.  If you ask her what is wrong and she says NOTHING, this means something and you should be on your toes.  NOTHING is usually used to describe the feeling a woman has of wanting to turn you inside out, upside down, and backwards.  “Nothing” usually signifies an argument that will last FIVE MINUTES and end with the word FINE.

3.  GO AHEAD.  (with raised eyebrows) - This is a Dare.  One that will result in a woman getting upset over NOTHING and will end with the word FINE.

4.  GO AHEAD.  (normal eyebrows) - This means “I give up” or “do what you want because I don’t care.”  You will get a raised eyebrow “Go ahead” in just a few minutes, followed by NOTHING and FINE and she will talk to you again in about FIVE MINUTES when she cools off.

5.   LOUD SIGH.  This isn’t actually a word, but is still often a verbal statement very misunderstood by most men.  A “Loud Sigh” means she thinks you are an idiot at that moment and wonders why she is wasting her time standing here and arguing with you over NOTHING.

6.   SOFT SIGH.  Again, not a word, but a verbal statement.  “Soft Sighs” are one of the few things that some men actually understand.  She is content.  Your best bet is to not move or breathe and she will stay content.

7.   THAT’S OKAY.  This is one of the most dangerous statements that a woman can say to a man.  “That’s Okay” means that she wants to think long and hard before paying you retributions for whatever it is that you have done.  “That’s Okay” is often used with the word “Fine” and used in conjunction with a raised eyebrow “Go ahead.”  At some point in the near future when she has plotted and planned, you are going to be in some mighty big trouble.

8.   PLEASE DO.  This is not a statement, it is an offer.  A woman is giving you the chance to come up with whatever excuse or reason you have for doing whatever it is that you have done.  You have a fair chance to tell the truth, so be very careful and you shouldn't get a “That’s Okay.”

9.   THANKS.  A woman is thanking you.  Don’t faint – just say,  “You’re Welcome.”

10. THANKS A LOT.  This is much different from “Thanks.”  A woman will say, “Thanks A Lot” when she is really ticked off at you.  It signifies that you have hurt her in some callous way, and will be followed by the “Loud Sigh.”  Be careful not to ask what is wrong after the“Loud Sigh,” as she will only tell you “Nothing.”

11. WOW.  This is definitely not a compliment.  She is just so amazed that any one person could be so stupid.

12. WHATEVER.  Go away and get on with your business, she could care less.

Word Power when it comes to ‘women’ is to actually understand the Words Used by Women which could possibly aid you in any future confrontations.  Using the wisdom provided here, it is even possible to avoid any future confrontations.

“A soft answer turns away wrath.  But a harsh word stirs up anger.”–Proverbs 15:1

In this CBD-Rich Hemp Oil Review, our goal is to define and describe this genuinely valuable natural medicine in terms that are easy to understand. Read on to learn more.

CBD rich hemp oil has been in the news a great deal lately as being a wonderful discovery and very beneficial; however, information on exactly what it is and what it does is somewhat lacking.




CBD-Rich Hemp Oil Review: What Is This Product And What Can It Do For You?


CBD stands for cannabidiol. This is an ingredient that is abundant in cannabis plants. It is not a psychoactive ingredient. It is a medicinal ingredient. Researchers agree that it is probably the most important and useful component of the cannabis plant.  It is taken from the industrial hemp plant, not the marijuana plant because hemp plants contain an abundance of this substance, while marijuana plants do not. CBD benefits the endocannabinoid system.
The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a recent scientific discovery. This is a system within the human body that regulates inflammation response, cognitive function, sleep, relaxation and appetite.

The human body contains two kinds of cannabin receptors: CB1 & CB2. These are most predominant in the immune system and the brain, but can be found throughout the body. ECS keeps your body functioning as it should.


The #1 CBD-Rich Hemp Oil Review Question: Is it legal?


CBD rich hemp oil is a legal substance. They type of industrial hemp from which it is extracted is grown legally throughout the world, and the oil is imported legally to the United States. It is treated as an essential oil medicinally.  It has not been approved by the Food & Drug Administration, so no specific medical claims can be made about it; however, it is well known to be very beneficial in a number of ways.


There are two types of CBD rich hemp oil. One type is intended for food use and the other is intended for medicinal use. Adding either or both to your daily health regimen is beneficial to overall well-being, immune system support, stress management, clear thinking and general wellness. It is very important that you understand that this very beneficial substance is not a drug. You will not get high. However, when used as directed, you will most likely experience tremendous health benefits in fairly short order.

I hope this CBD-Rich Hemp Oil Review has cleared up any questions you may have had regarding this excellent product and that you will give it a try for your health!  For more information regarding CBD Research you can go to:

Kannaway Products Review: Great Medicine Or Bad Mojo. The truth to this is that Kannaway is a hemp lifestyle company with a focus on nutritional wellness and their products contain CBD-Rich hemp oil.

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally occurring constituent/cannabinoid of the hemp plant. It is the most abundant non-psychoactive cannabinoid in hemp & cannabis.

Hemp is fashionable these days and in this Kannaway Products review, you will read about how hemp differs from marijuana and the political boost that it is currently getting. Selling products based upon such a controversial ingredient is definitely a risk and one that MLM marketers have to assess before they jump on board.

Hemp Based Kannaway Products


Kannaway Products don’t have THC. That’s the active ingredient in marijuana that causes the hallucinatory effects. Because of this, the makers at Kannaway say their products can be shipped and sold in all 50 states.

Cannabidiol extract (CBD oil), is an extraction of stalks and stems from a Hemp strain of Cannabis sativa grown in the U.K., but legally imported through FDA tariff codes. Hemp (as opposed to marijuana) is usually ideal for cannabidiol (CBD oil) extractions as it is naturally high in CBD and low in THC, making it superior to most high-THC marijuana strains as far as cannabidiol (CBD) content is concerned.

All of Kannaway Product’s are health-based and all of them include some form of hemp. Utilizing fibers, seeds, and oils from sativa plants developed for their low levels of THC and their high levels of CBD, the company claims that their products are safe to use as well as being legal to sell and buy. Their products are based upon years of research by the medical marijuana industry.


Is there money to be made with Kannaway?

The general consensus and increased acceptance of medical marijuana and associated products indicates that there are oodles of money to be made. Getting in early can be the recipe for success for an entrepreneur willing approach sales with a well-developed business plan. This is the first MLM of its type and the prospects are staggering. However, sales don’t come without some political controversy.  Yet, when one uses the products they are able to see and feel the healing effects which they deliver.

There are several products to choose from and more coming.   It’s a no brainer.  There is money to be made, and you will also have access to a Retail Store.

Risks Of Selling Kannaway Products

No Kannaway Products review would be complete without examining the risks involved. Surveys tell the story of a deeply divided population when it comes to the use of the sativa plant. Some support its use whole-heartedly while others are deeply opposed. In the end, each entrepreneur should address their own feelings before signing up.

The fact is, that 10,000 people joined the first 96 hours!

Make sure that you understand how these products work before you start. Anyone selling this product line is sure to be challenged, as you would be in any business opportunity that you join, therefore you must be able to counter arguments against it with fully supportable facts and figures. Your promotional material must directly address the negatives as well as the positives of hemp in order to eliminate controversy and increase sales. Solved – Click Here!

The Business Potential

Kannaway Products has a strong management team that is bravely going where no company has gone before. Their initial product line includes a cream and a pen dispenser, similar to e-cigarettes (with different flavors).  The commission rates on sales look great and the home company provides a great deal of support to its agents.

Since the company is still so new, they are guaranteed to make some mistakes. Be prepared to adjust your plan continually during this initial growth phase, as with any new company.

In the final analysis, this Kannaway Products Review has to be positive. Despite the risks, it seems like an idea whose time has come with outstanding potential for excellent earnings.

When it comes to Assisting the Universe in Fulfilling Your Dreams you must first remember this:  ”It is not where you come from, or even where you are, it is where you are going that always matters most.”


First you must search your heart to figure out why you are not receiving your expectations. You may feel that you understand the Law of Attraction and the principles of manifesting, yet you cannot explain why these things are not coming to you.

Your heart is your paintbrush. 
The entire Universe is your canvas.
You life is your art.
—Kute Blackson


You believe that we create our reality. You understand the laws of attraction, and you believe that what we think about we attract into our experience. You have even been practicing these principles, that is, when you remember to.

You even practice repeating affirmations such as:

a.  I have my perfect relationship because I deserve to have it.

b.  My income level is constantly increasing.

Yet, you still don’t have the manifestation of that perfect relationship or more income.

Mind is the master power that moulds and makes
And man is mind, and evermore he takes
The tool of thought, and, shaping what he wills
Brings forth a thousand joys, a thousand ills
He thinks in secret, and it comes to pass
Environment is but his looking glass
–James Allen

Stop blaming  your parents for instilling some limiting belief that money is bad or that there is something spiritual about suffering. It really doesn’t matter where some of your beliefs come from or how many of them you have.  Turn off all those old channels.  Stop listening to the dead end music.

“It has been proven now scientifically that, an affirmative thought is hundreds of times more powerful than a negative thought.”–Michael Beckwith

Refocus, Regroup, and Recharge:


There is a way around this.  Begin to focus on the beliefs which will serve you better such as:

-The Universe is full of abundance.

-The Universe wants to bring me the desires of my heart.

-The Universe wants to fulfill all my dreams.

-The Bible states: ” Ask and it shall be given.”

“Ask, and it shall be given you. Seek and ye shall find.  Knock and it shall be opened unto you.  For everyone that asketh, receiveth and he that seeketh, findeth and to him that knocketh, it shall be opened.”

Get rid of those feelings of unworthiness.  If you don’t believe that you deserve to be happy and successful, then how in the world can you possibly create that in your life?

-The Bible tells us:  “All Things are possible to those who Believe.”

Assist The Universe in Fulfilling Your Dreams.

1. Believing that it IS possible to have your desired dreams.

2. By Knowing that you are Worthy to receive.

3. Take Action.

4.   Wait for the dream to manifest itself in your life.

The Universe doesn’t just pour your dreams out in front you.  There is “Action Steps” that you are required to take.  There’s no magic wands.

Remember that:

 ”Faith without works is dead.”  There will always be action steps for you to walk through along with your positive thinking and changed mindset.

The thought manifests as the word.
The word manifests as the deed.
The deed develops into habit.
And the habit hardens into character.
So watch the thought and its ways with care.
And let it spring from love,
born out of concern for all beings.


Once you begin to take action, any action in the direction of your desired dream, you are showing the Universe that you are serious. This will also facilitate the process because you have focused your attention on your ‘action’ instead of your ‘waiting’. The action you take does not have to be huge earth-shattering stuff.  This action can come from feelings of inspiration, intuition, or even coincidental events.  Only Believe….

There is one extremely important step to keep in mind when you do take action:

Be sure that you feel good about it, about yourself and what you want beforehand.  Faithand Patience are the Power Twins.  These two work together in helping the Universe  in Fulfilling  Your Dreams.

Now you know what it takes to assist the Universe in fulfilling your dreams.

Rest and Do Not Worry!

Rest and Do Not Worry because “worry” is nothing other than an irrational thought, which gives you the ability to dissect it by taking it apart, you can cut it up, lay it out and look at it piece by piece.



It has been noted that 94% of the things you tend to worry about will never come to pass, or they are innocuous.  Therefore, there is only a 6% ratio left to be dealt with, and we all have the capability to handle the 6% without panicking and being filled with apprehension.

Worry is one of the the most ineffective pastimes we can have:

Better never trouble trouble
Until trouble troubles you,
For you’re sure to make your trouble
Double trouble when you do.
And your trouble, like a bubble,
That you’re troubling about,
May be nothing but a cipher
With the rim rubbed out.”
—David Keppel

Rest is important to our bodies because it gives to us a sense of restored balance and allows us to function much better.  Our bodies requires rest, which by the way can come in the form of a good night’s peaceful sleep with the end result being that we are allowed to see how rest recharges our body and makes it more capable to deal realistically with the challenges of each day and lessens the chance of worry.

“And on the seventh day God ended His work which he had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all his work which He had done.”–Genesis 2:2


“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear.  Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes?  Look at the birds of the air, they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them.  Are you not much more valuable than they?  Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?  And why do you worry about clothes?  See how the lilies of the field grow.  They do not labor or spin.”–Matthew 6:25-28

Life has its responsibilities, but we also have a choice to either worry or rest.

“Cast your burden upon the Lord, and He shall sustain you.”–Psalm 55:22

Find a place of Rest by:

1.  Never allowing others to control your stopwatch!

You should never allow yourself to be intimidated by the opinions of others.  Remember to always take charge of your time and never let other’s infringe on your committed time for rest and recovery.

2.  Realize that there is a need for rest in each season of your life.

Every phase of life requires rest in order to continue on to the next phase.

3.  Be sure to work to fulfill your calling, never your falling.

You are to work at accomplishing your goals in life, avoiding the addiction to become a workaholic, which tends to bring overexertion, exhaustion, as well as, over-extension.

4.  Learn to work at Resting.

Take vacations, relax, enjoy life.  Take time outs from time to time to become refreshed, renewed and recharged.


5.  Always reward yourself with Rest.

When you work hard, it’s important to reward yourself by playing hard.  Avoid burnout which destroys your motivation to work.  We maximize ourselves in times of silence where we are able to be still in rest.

Worry is a condition where the mind spasmodically clutches an idea and won’t let it go. You allow yourself to hold onto an idea which you refuse to let go of.

Do Not Worry by:

a.  Taking Worry Apart by exchanging a bad idea with a good idea.

b.  Rising Above Worry by rising above the worry with clarity.

c.  Looking at Worry realistically and logically, then it loses its power.

It is important to Rest and Do Not Worry because the places of ‘rest’ that we carve out for ourselves are most often where we are able to best assess our life, our dreams, our heartaches, as well as our faith.  There is so much power in Rest, because it allows us to enjoy the journey of life, not only arriving at the destination.  Take a break, then rest and restore yourself.

Surviving as a Stay At Home Mom

Surviving as a Stay At Home Mom is possible with the correct Time Management Procedures in place.

Stay at home moms often get a bad rap. They are often considered “always available” by those who don’t really understand what all they accomplish in a day. A typical stay at home mom would earn over $100,000 per year if she were paid for the many things that she does throughout the day.

“Kids spell T-I-M-E.”–John Crudele

For a staying at home mom to stay on top of things she needs to organize her time wisely. She should start with the moment she gets up in the morning. Make the bed as soon as she gets out of it to save time later.

After making the bed, get dressed, this will help to speed the day up later on. If she has laundry she may wish to throw a load in after this. Now it’s time to get children up for school.

As she continues on throughout her day, she should be picking things up as she goes from one room to another. This will save her from having to run around hurriedly cleaning before someone comes over or hubby comes home.


Children as young as 3 years old can learn to help by picking up their toys. Putting their clothes into a drawer and maybe even dusting. It’s not difficult to train children to help. This will help reduce the time mom has to work at cleaning the house. Remember, it’s okay if it’s not perfect. Allowing children to help will teach them responsibility and the quality will come in time.

Focus on only one major task per day. Perhaps it’s vacuuming or washing all of the bedding. Whatever it is, it will help to reduce chaos if only one task is focused on. Mom will also feel like she’s really accomplished something at the end of the day.

Always go easy on yourself. You’re only one person. Things often happen that will throw the scheduling off so be flexible.

“In bringing up children, spend on them half as much money, and twice as much time.”–Unknown Author


It’s important to remember that surviving as a Stay At Home Mom is possible, and with the correct focus and time management in place, it is even possible for you to create an income from home.

Stress Relief: Part 2

Stress Relief begins by changing our thoughts because we are not what we think, but what we think we become. Therefore, to avoid stress we must begin to have a positive attitude and thinking habits.


Believe this statement by Adidas:

“Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they’ve been given than to explore the power they have to change it.  Impossible is not a fact.  It’s an opinion.  Impossible is not a declaration.  It’s a date.  Impossible is potential.  Impossible is temporary.  Impossible is nothing.”

“The more tranquil a man becomes,  the greater is his success, his influence, his power for good.  Calmness of mind is one of the beautiful treasures of wisdom.”  James Allen

Stress Relief  Methods Continued:

8. Learn to Put Off Problems Before They Even Occur.

This will take some preparation and practice. For instance:

a.  If you are going to another city for an important meeting,  carry your presentation materials and dress suit on board the plane.

b.  Gas up before your tank is on empty.

b.  Keep your car tuned up and your oil changed.

d.  Keep food ready and on hand anytime at your house in case you have to prepare a fast meal without having to go to the store.

e.  Always keep enough food, medicine, and toiletries on hand so you never have to feel tensed about them running out.

9. Expect And Enjoy All The Good Things That Life Has to Offer.


Be sure to allow yourself some physical pleasure and enjoyment  in order to keep stress at bay.  Indulge yourself with a professional massage, or trade massages with a loved one.

Give yourself consent to enjoy a movie, watch a concert or sports event, listen to music, or read a book. Take pleasure in a soothing cup of chamomile herb tea with a little bit of honey. Chamomile has long been used to relieve nervous tension.

You may want to arrange a day of beauty and relaxation with a friend. Do each other’s hair, or paint your nails and chat.

Make a simple steam facial at home by boiling water. Remove the pan from the stove. Cover your head with a large towel so that it creates a tent over the pot. Steam your face for five or 10 minutes. Add aromatic herbs to the water for a sensual touch. Center your attention on any of the senses – hearing, seeing, eating or body movements – for a few minutes. Even washing your hands can become a sensual experience.

10. Maintain a Definite Goal or Purpose in Life, and Strive for it..

Plan ahead to meet your most desired goals in life.  It’s important to always wake up with a sense of purpose.

Most Time management experts highlight the importance of writing down your important goals.  Be sure to break down big projects down into a series of small steps that you can work on every day.  Inch by inch, slowly but surely, you will get to your ultimate destination.

Knowing that you are striving towards  your dreams will relieve the frustrations that mount when you feel stuck in a rut or a situation that seem to have no direction.

11. Take Time Away To Recharge Your Spirit.

“Calmness is the cradle of power.”–J G Holland

Make sure to schedule for private time alone daily. After all, you deserve it. Unplug the telephone and enjoy a quiet evening alone or with your family.

Maybe even spend a few minutes writing your feelings out in a journal. This can help you find a new viewpoint in life and relieve any internal conflicts.

More Tips to Recharge Your Spirit:

· Use earplugs for instant peace anytime, anyplace.

· Meditation:Two methods: Observe your thoughts as they pass through your mind. Or, repeat a word or phrase with an uplifting meaning.

. Put into practice progressive relaxation for 20 minutes twice a day to relive high blood pressure and other physiological responses to stress. Make tighter and release each muscle group in turn, starting with the soles of the feet and slowly working up to the scalp.

· Schedule a weekend activity that is a change of your usual routine.  

· Take time out for a little entertainment in the middle of your workday. When the pressures of completing a project are too great, your productivity can drop. Take a walk or eat lunch outside the office.

12. Use Visualization and Affirmation Techniques.


It’s possible for you to conquer a circumstance you fear by going over the event in your mind. Imagine the scene in clear detail and visualize the best possible result that may happen.

It’s also possible to reduce an imagined fear down to size by picturing the worst possible outcome. Visualize describing this worst case to your best friend the next day and the sympathy you receive.

Imagine telling a group of friends the next month, who contribute to their similar experiences.

Finally, imagine joking about your unpleasant experience with a complete stranger a month later. If you carry this exercise through to the end, your stress will become something to laugh about.

Replace negative self- talk with positive affirmations. Never allow your mind be filled with gloom:

You’re too ugly. . . you’re too old. . .you’ll never achieve anything. And things like: What if I fail the exam? What if she doesn’t like my gift? What if we get lost? These things haven’t even occurred yet.

Nourish your mind with a constant stream of “I can; therefore, I will.”

13. Always Get a Sufficient Amount of Rest.

Settle on how much sleep your body requires for the best possible performance. Lack of
sleep lessens the body’s responses to stress and lowers the immune system.

14. Never Allow Yourself To Become Self Centered.

Realize that it’s not necessary for you to attain all the money, fame, and success in the world.  There’s just not enough time to do all these things. Start from the most important task and focus on one thing at a time.

“Assume a cheerfulness you do not feel, and shortly you feel the cheerfulness you assumed.”–Chinese Proverb

Once you realize that Stress Relief comes from taking responsibility for your attitude towards how to react to situations, you will be able to overcome obstacles instead of being stressed from them.

“There is more to life than increasing its speed.”–Mohandas  K Gandhi

“A relaxed attitude lengthens a man’s life.”–Proverbs

“Renew your mind with the washing of the Word of God”

Removing stress from your life takes more than prayer alone. You must ‘take action’ to make changes and stop doing whatever is causing the stress. You can learn to calm down in the way you handle things.

It is also important that we realize that stress doesn’t come from our boss, kids, spouse, traffic jams, health issues, or any other circumstances.  Stress comes from your thoughts regarding these circumstances.


Living a stress- free lifestyle is able to do wonders in eliminating depression.  If you truly would like no stress in your life, take the stress test and follow these practical methods to relieve stress:

1. Be Amused And Be Happy.

Laugh hard and loud! If you lack  a sense of humor, find someone else who has or watch a funny movie.  Laughter releases endorphin’s (happy chemicals) from the body, which helps boost your immune system.

2. Time Management.

You’ll find that you will be much more able to deal with stress if you have a good handle on your job, relationships, and other activities. When you are in control, you are more inclined to stay focused and calm.  Be sure to ‘Plan your time wisely.’

Always leave room for unexpected events – both negative and positive.  Allow yourself to be adaptable in rearranging your agenda.  Plan to get out of bed at least 15 minutes early in the morning.  Allow an extra 15 minutes to get to all appointments.

It’s important to avoid procrastinating on important or urgent tasks. Whatever needs doing, do it immediately. Always undertake the unpleasant tasks early, so that you won’t have to worry about them for the rest of the day. Keep an appointment or record book. Never just rely on your memory.

Make sure that you do your tasks one thing at a time.  Be sure to focus your attention on the present moment, whether it’s the person talking to you or the job at hand. This will help you to avoid making any errors – which will lead to more tension and anxiety.

Be patient in waiting.  Anxiety caused by impatience will raise  your blood pressure. Learn to Say “no” to requests that you cannot accomplish.

Delegate all  trivial tasks. You must remember that you don’t have to do it all yourself. Break down each job into separate tasks and assign them to people with the suitable skills.

3. Exercise.


Work Out  and Strive  to get some habitual exercise such as brisk walking, swimming or whatever appeals to your fancy.

You can play a sport  which you’re interested in. Aerobic exercises can considerably reduce the stress factor. Working out also improves your ability to sleep well and gives you time to think and focus on other things.

Exercise also promotes the release of natural soothing chemicals in your body.  Never result to excessive exercise, because this may have an adverse effect and might cause more depression.

4. Join A Support Group.

Joining a Support Group is another Stress Relief as it helps to manage stress much better just by having other people helping and supporting you. Did you know that married people and people who are outgoing (always meeting with friends), have considerably low levels of stress in their lives?

Always choose positive friends who are not worriers.  All friends who continually put you
down or talk gloomily about life will increase your anxiety. Talk over your problems with a trustworthy, positive uplifting friend. A long-distance call to an old pal can be great therapy.


Forgive others instead of holding grudges. Forgiveness is a great Stress Relief.  It not only frees the other person, but yourself as well. Perfectionism is not the means to
happiness. Become more flexible and adaptable to your environment.

Always communicate clearly with your co-workers, boss or team mates. Ask more questions. Repeat instructions that you are given. Clarifying directions at the start of a project can save lots of time later rectifying out misunderstandings. Be honest in your
dealings with others. Lying and cheating will always lead to more stress.

5. Learn to Take Deep Breaths.

Calm down your muscles, escalating your stomach and chest. Exhale slowly. Do it again several times. Follow your breath as it flows in and out. Do not try to have power over it.

This is a good way to relax in the midst of any activity. This practice allows you to find a breathing pattern that is natural and relaxing to you.

Make use of this yoga technique:

Inhale slowly, counting to eight. Exhale through your mouth, even more slowly, counting to sixteen. Make a sighing sound as you exhale, and feel tension dissolve. Do it again 10 times.

6. Consume Healthy Foods And Timely Eating Habits.

Never skip meals, especially breakfast. Take time out to eat heartily no matter how busy you are. Take nutritious snacks to the office, or even the shopping mall. A nutritionally balanced diet is essential to your health and lifestyle.

Researchers have found that even small deficiencies of thiamine, a B-complex vitamin, can cause anxiety symptoms. Pantothenic acid, another B-complex vitamin, is critical during times of stress. Avoid caffeine, alcohol, and large amounts of sweets, which can and will worsen them systems and actually cause more stress.

7. Optimistic Living!

Count your blessings, particularly when everything seems to go wrong. Realize and understand that there are many other people who are living in worse conditions than you are.

Never exaggerate the complexity of your problems. Every problem has a solution. All you need to do is find that solution. Learn to be happy and to enjoy life’s blessings. Always live one day at a time.

“Remember that stress doesn’t come from what’s going on in your life. It comes from your thoughts about what’s going on in your life.”–Andrew Bernstein

Regarding Stress Relief it’s important to remember that God will never give us more than we can handle.  Rejoice and be Glad.
