I knew that! I just wanted to thank you and compliment you at the same time for all of the time that you take to help motivate others without any expectation of a return. Thank you!

I know that Chan, I was just kidding emoticon I believe everyone, whatever astrological sign, race, creed, gender, etc. has the ability to be caring, giving, loving, kind, and in general good human beings, all we need is the desire to be that way.

Anita, Virgos don't have a monopoly on selfless service. My wife is a Pisces and my co-worker is too and they both have a dedication to helping others that goes beyond any self interest. All signs have evolved characteristics and the most evolved people spend a noticeable amount of time helping others or they do it very privately, because they don't even wish the reward of "thanks". It is a way with connecting with our fellow beings and that comes with wisdom and practice. You certainly fall into this category too, whether or not you have any planets or your sun sign in Virgo. I love the advice from the daily Om because it is so applicable to everyone. It puts our attention on the highest and best person that we can possibly be and that is the way that we should all lead our lives.

Agree, agree, agree, My grandfather has always told me you only can reap what you sow. and if you don't take care of your crop then you will have very little in the end to show for it. What I always got out of it was that every seed is a dream and in that dream there are goals if you don't take care and work hard to accomplish those goals if you don't have the mindset to plant the seed and water the seed and make sure the seed has correct light. then it will fail and that seed will be only a dream but if you nourish it and take time for it and keep it healthy then the dreams can become reality and you will be successful in that dream.
My Grandfather ran a successful sheep farm for over 50 years. He is now 90 and though he doesn't have cattle anymore. He and my grandmother have what they want and live a retirement that many are
jealous of.

I love your posts and I always look at them as a reminder for what I want to accomplish not only in weight but in life too.

Spreading Love Selflessly
Virgo Daily Horoscope

Your selfless nature will likely exert itself today, prompting you to embark upon a philanthropic journey that helps you touch others’ lives in a positive way. You may feel bountiful as well as generous and be driven to volunteer your skills, resources, and talents for charitable purposes. As you articulate this spirit of service and caring, you may discover that you develop strong bonds with individuals who can benefit from your efforts. Your altruistic approach to giving can help you understand the true value of your contribution and how your choices are intertwined with the lives of others. Consider, today, how you can integrate your newfound philanthropic mind-set into your daily life. You can then create the change you hope to see and make the world a better place by simply being yourself.

Service, when selfless and motivated only by your desire to improve the lives of your fellow living beings, helps you become more aware of the world around you and see that the vast web of life is interconnected through action. Since all people have been blessed with a shared consciousness—which is sometimes weak and sometimes strong—service can become an anchor that reestablishes your connection to others. Feelings of isolation are easily overcome when you recognize and acknowledge your ability to positively influence people and your environment. When your actions are free from the expectation of recompense, you can concentrate wholly on spreading love. As you serve others selflessly today, you’ll understand that your choices have the power to change lives.

What do you think?

While it is important to wake up and smell the coffee, it is also necessary to drink it if you want the lift. Dreaming about it, just smelling it, thinking about it, etc; none of these will give you the energy of actually drinking the coffee. You can make it your own: black, latte, mocha, etc, but you need to actually drink it to get the effect. Other people can make it for you, but you have to drink it. To your health! emoticon

Hope you have a fabulous weekend! TGIF :)

Some people don't deserve success!
by Justin Blake

I really mean that.

I know I'm going to get a lot of
backlash from my readers for this but
you know what...?

Some people need to hear that.

You might be asking...

"Why, Justin?"

"Why would you say a thing like that?"

Well, think about this...

How many people do you know who
always talk about how badly they
want some type of success?

They say things like...

*"I'm sick of work. I'm gonna start my
own business."

*"Can you believe how much money
he/she makes? They don't deserve
what they have. They got "lucky",
that's all!"

*"As soon as I have more time, I'll
start my (fill in the blank here) ____!"

*"Teach me how to run an internet
business for free and I'll pay you with
the profits."

*"How much time a week do I have to
spend doing this...?"

*"I want to be a _____ but _____."

And the list goes on and on.

They just DON'T get it.

So here's the straight and honest
truth.

*** Success takes time. ***

How much time, depends on YOU!

It doesn't matter if your idea of
success is building a multi-million
dollar business or scoring that high
six-figure paying job.

It doesn't matter if your idea of
success is generating an extra $5
or $10,000 this year.

No,.. no matter what, it's up to you.

Now, I know if you're reading this,
then you're NOT one of those people
that blame circumstances or lack of
money for your lack of success.

Yes, I'm sure you believe that you can
achieve anything and everything you desire.

There are only two resources I know
of that will arm you with the information
you need to maximize your success
potential and achieve anything you
want with your two *secret weapons*.

The power of mental focus and the
power of the...SUBCONSCIOUS MIND.

The key is "mental focus", "mental
clarity" and "subconscious programming".

But DO remember...

... the only place where SUCCESS comes
before WORK is in the dictionary.

Don't just sit there and wait for
success to find you just because you
are positive and have a funny smile
on your face.

It's time to get what you truly want
in life.

www.ManifestationMeditation.com

You cannot get what you’ve never had unless you’re willing to do what you’ve never done.

Don't be afraid that your life will end, be afraid that it will never begin.
