Daily Teaching

secret

You can most certainly help others through your thoughts, and they can help you. Every good thought you send to another is a living force. However, the person you are sending the thought to has to be asking for the same thing you are sending. If the person does not want it, then they are not in harmony with your thought, and it will not reach them. Learn more about how to work powerfully with your relationships:

Self-Care is Selfish – NOT

“Learn to nurture yourself.”

Somewhere along the line many women learn to put the needs of others before their own. In many ways this ability is one of our greatest feminine talents; nurturing is a trait that validates us as women and this quality of our nature should surely be treasured and celebrated.

>But, why is it that so many of us feel guilty when it comes to nurturing ourselves? We feel selfish. We believe that we’re stealing time away from those that need us. Yet the truth is, you need to nurture yourself before you can successfully nurture others.

This may sound self-indulgent, but it’s not. By taking care of your own needs you are recognizing and affirming that your own emotional, physical and mental health is just as important as that of others.

The truth is that, at least some of the time, you have to put yourself and your own needs first. If you love and care for yourself, you’re far better equipped to love and care for those that need you.

Pave the Way for an Easier Life

“Life works best with fewer non-negotiables.”

Non-negotiables are stances you take where you’re not willing to budge an inch. You probably have non-negotiables with your partner, kids, parents and your job. They can be things that you want, things that you don’t want, or, your opinions and points of view.

Only you can decide where to draw the line. There are certainly things in your life that, no matter what, are non-negotiable. End of discussion! But if your list of non-negotiables is long then you may be making life more difficult than necessary.

Challenge your non-negotiables. Are they all really set in stone? Remember, sometimes you need to be willing to give a little to receive greater harmony and good will.

I Made a Mistake. Now What?

“Admit your mistake! It’s your most empowering choice.”

We all make mistakes. It’s a fact of life. What matters is what you do afterward.

You have a choice. You can let your mistake torment you, embarrass you, and hold you back. Or, you can admit you made a mistake, learn from it, and move on.

Mistakes are lessons in disguise. You can learn something from each and every one. Next time you make a mistake, act quickly and decisively. Take responsibility and look for the lesson. Use the lesson to reach greater success and good fortune in your life.

Learn from your mistakes. Only then can they empower you to greater heights.

What it Means to be Authentic & Why it Matters

“Claim your authentic self and live to your fullest potential.”

When you find happiness and success within yourself, you are an authentic person. You know who you really are, without reference to the expectations of peers or society.

To live an authentic life, you must free yourself from superficial values. You must think for yourself, decide what is right for you and get in touch with your own thoughts, needs and desires.  Lastly, you must embrace your own values and live what you believe to be true.

Then, and only then, are you authentic. Then and only then, can you live up to your full potential.
