But it is foolish to dwell on that regret. <BR> <BR> When you look back on the last year, or month, or decade, and see some things you regret, go ahead and feel that regret. Then harness the energy of that regret to create a more positive, fulfilling reality for your life. <BR> <BR> Regrets teach you about your mistakes in a compelling, personally meaningful way. Go ahead, learn their lessons, and transform your past mistakes into new successes. <BR> ...

A life with only the ups and no downs is not only impossible, it is undesirable. <BR> <BR> You won’t achieve anything of value unless you’re willing to work your way through some difficult and demanding challenges.

The process begins when you truly make the decision and commitment to do it. <BR> <BR> The tools are there, and the resources and energy are available. Your main job is to provide the what and the why, the vision and the reason. <BR> <BR> Although no significant achievement is easy, whatever you envision is absolutely possible.

In fact, it grows. <BR> <BR> Sharing your wisdom with another person does not take that wisdom away from you. It actually deepens your wisdom, and makes it even more profound. <BR> <BR> Giving your love does not in any way diminish the love you have. It makes your love richer and more meaningful. <BR> <BR> You can speak the truth all day long, and at the end of the day that truth is more plentiful than it was at the beginning. You can exerc...

That can either hurt you greatly or help you immensely. <BR> <BR> Your complaints, for example, give more power and presence to whatever you complain about. Your love, on the other hand, gives more substance to whatever you love. <BR> <BR> Put the focus of your attention not on what you wish to avoid. Instead, constantly direct your attention toward where you would like your life to go. <BR> <BR> Your unceasing th...

The person who can give you real confidence, is you. <BR> <BR> Others can teach you, encourage you, and express their own confidence in you.

Make the choice and take the action that will bring some real, new, positive value to this day. <BR> <BR> You don’t have to wait for things to get better. Because you can take it upon yourself to be better. <BR> <BR> It doesn’t matter what else might be going on. There is more than enough goodness within you to make a real difference when you give some of that goodness to the world around you. <BR> <BR> Just one authentically pos... Fri, 19 Aug 2011 07:47:26 EST Daily Motivator 08/18/11 - What is easy http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4434158 Easy is overrated. Though easy is nice and convenient, it is not essential. <BR> <BR> Many good, valuable and worthwhile things are not easy. Unfortunately, perfectly acceptable options are too often overlooked simply because they are not easy. <BR> <BR> Life is not always easy. And yet life is very much worth living, and very much worth the trouble and effort it often requires. <BR> <BR> If you only seek the easiest way, you’ll miss out on the best way. If you avoid what is not easy, y...

Instead, allow those troubles to make the best of you. <BR> <BR> Don’t tire yourself out fighting against the challenges. Instead, find new energy by embracing those challenges and working through them to create real value. <BR> <BR> Always remind yourself that discouragement is nothing more than a response you’ve chosen. When you find that you’ve chosen to let it be, you can just as surely choose to let it go. <BR> <BR> In the place of disc...

Instead, get yourself away from it in whatever way you can. <BR> <BR> If you’re in a negative pattern, break the pattern by establishing a new, more meaningful, positive and empowering one. Doing what you’ve always done will continue to get you what you’ve always gotten, and to get a change you must make a change. <BR> <BR> Reach inside and reacquaint yourself with what you truly care about. Your authentic purpose is far more imp...

Life is about reaching ever higher, building one achievement on top of another, and creating real, meaningful value in each moment. <BR> <BR> A common stone on the ground does a great job of just getting by. You, on the other hand, are destined for much more spectacular things. <BR> <BR> Yes indeed, you will most certainly encounter a whole lot of challenges when you make the effort to raise your world even a little bit higher. The good thing is, you are s...

You always create when you truly wish to create. <BR> <BR> There is the opportunity for artistry in every facet of life. Give your love to whatever you are doing, and your own special art will come to life. <BR> <BR> If you’re just going through the motions, you’re stealing life from yourself. Nothing has to be tedious, for everything is an opportunity to create new richness. <BR> <BR> Complaining about your lot in life is an insult to your ow...

And allow the achievement of whatever you envision. <BR> <BR> It is your ego that creates doubt. It is your ego that manufactures excuses. <BR> <BR> Your ego holds your imagination back, and prevents you from achieving the fulfillment you truly desire. Yet you can choose, with love and positive intention, to let go of that confining, limiting ego. <BR> <BR> Stop weighing yourself down with judgments about what you th... Sat, 13 Aug 2011 12:55:37 EST Meaningful doing http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4422327 <BR> Do you ever find that you are merely trying and not really doing? If so, you’re not being who you truly are. <BR> <BR> You don’t have to try to authentically be yourself. And in being yourself is where you’ll be most effective. <BR> <BR> There is no power, only conflict, in trying to be someone or something you’re not. Instead of fighting against yourself, use your energy to more fully be and express yourself. <BR> <BR> What you experience as trying, is not really you. What you st... Fri, 12 Aug 2011 07:52:12 EST
