Show Bitterness & Disappointment the Door

“Has your ship arrived?”

Are you waiting for your “ship to come in”? It could be a long wait. Why not put your swimsuit on and go out and meet it?

Nothing leads to more disappointment and bitterness than the belief that you’re owed something in life. Why wait for fate to somehow deliver unknown future bounties and success? Start focusing on what you can do to make things happen, right now.

Be grateful for the fact that you’re in charge of your own destiny – and no one else has this power. Celebrate each success you achieve and pause to enjoy each moment of good fortune.

When setbacks occur, shake them off and move on. Fill your life with positive energy, not by making plans for the future, but by living for today.

Handle Change with Ease

“Open your arms to change, but don’t let go of your values.”

As you race through life, facing daily challenges and trying to stay on top of change, it’s not always easy to find time to reflect on the values you hold dear. But, in truth, moments of change are exactly the times when you most need to remember values!

Women with a solid value system are generally happier and find it easier to overcome challenges. Values like integrity, loyalty, faith, compassion, courage and a sense of community, all work together to give us inner direction and purpose.

Values build personal resiliency, which in turn helps you bounce back from adversity and embrace new opportunities. Take a moment today to reflect on your values – and then go out and put them into action!

Daily Teaching


You know that to bring something better you must imagine what that better thing looks like in your mind, and then live in that picture as though it is here now. But you should also know that if you complain about your current job, for example, and continue to focus on all the negative things, you will never bring the better job to you. You must look for the things to be grateful for in your current job. Each thing you find to be grateful for is helping to bring that better job to you. That is really working the law! Learn where gratitude can also change your life.

This Will Transform Your Life

“It all starts with a vision.”

A vision is an inspired idea. It is a concept that motivates you and pushes you into action.

You know when a vision hits you, by the energy and excitement you feel. A clear vision gets you charged and keeps you going. The very thought fills you with energy and positive feelings.

Your visions inspire a sense of purpose and direction. They give you a target to aim for, an aspiration to live for. With the motivation that comes from visions, you can transform yourself and your life.

Once you have a vision in mind, use the energy it inspires to create a plan. Then, imagine the plan in motion and the vision achieved. That’s how visions become realities!

Handle Impossible Situations

“A positive attitude is within your reach.”

There will be times when you find yourself in situations that seem impossible to deal with. Maybe you are in one, now. Perhaps you’re in a dead end job, or a relationship that seems to be going nowhere. Maybe your family is driving you crazy.

Whatever your situation, remember, many women have stood in your shoes. They found a way to overcome obstacles and solve problems. But, how did they do it? They figured out a way to keep a positive attitude through the hardest of times. They did not focus on the gloom, but on the resolutions. If they could do it, so can you.

A positive attitude is yours for the making. Grab it now and turn those bad situations into mere bumps in the road of life.

What Your Doubts are Trying to Tell You

“Doubts a way to learn, not a way of life.”

Millions of people have doubts every day. Nobody is immune. Instead of holding onto nagging doubts forever, use hesitations in a positive way. Employ doubts to propel you forward.

When faced with doubt, ask yourself,  “Why do I have this feeling?” See it as a sign that something needs your attention. Take a moment for constructive thought.

As you look for the answer to what is causing your doubts, you may discover truths disguised by the hustle and bustle of life. Don’t stop until the reason for your doubt is clear. After you discover it, you can take action. Only then can you can let go of doubt – and doubt can let go of you!
