Thank you for this. I'm very frustrated with the direction that my life is going right now and the things that are taking place in it. This was helpful.

With God, ALL things ARE possible!

Thanks for the motivation. I've been in a 'temporary defeat' mode lately. This has given me pause and I will start now to overcome.

I agree that knowledge is power! God bless you for your positive attitude in overcoming many obstacles.

The first step in getting somewhere is by deciding not to stay where you're at.

That was wonderful Ray, and so true. I love all that you share with us.

" My goal is to live the truly religious life, and express it in my music. If you live it, when you play, there's no problem because the music is part of the whole thing. To be a musician is really something. It goes very,very deep. My music is the spiritual expression of what I am--my faith, my knowledge, my being." by John Coltrane

YOU MUST ACT ON THOSE DREAMS

You have to make your own opportunities. Your future is not a matter of chance. It's a matter of your choice. It's not something you wait for. It's something you must actively pursue.

Don't wait for extraordinary opportunities. Seize common occasions and make them great. Opportunity can come disguised in the form of misfortune, or temporary defeat.

Start today, right where you are. Distant fields will always appear greener. Yet, golden opportunities are all around you.

You can live a great dream if you pursue it.

© 2010 YourDailyMotivation.com

Ray's Notes:

When an opportunity comes up, do you act on it immediately? or do you let it slip by because you didn't think you could do it or keep it up?

I try not to dismiss opportunities but there are times when I seem to want to second guess my decisions and over-think the situation!

On one hand, I won't rush into anything but on the other, I will research it before I start it!

This is true when it comes down to my health! I listen to my Doctors when it comes to a diagnosis but I also like to research the disease and possible cures so I know what I can and Can not do!

I also will research the best possible dietary path for myself including vitamins and proper portions,etc so that I won't hurt my body due to the diabetes, high blood pressure, gout and arthritis.

When I put together a plan for my "New" lifestyle it had to include diet and nutrition, exercise, health monitoring, proper medication, an active file on my health as to what was and wasn't working and the direction that I was headed regarding all of my goals!

In this way I acted on my dreams of losing weight and feeling great!

I can look at any one of the charts for food, medication, sleep, high blood pressure, diabetes glucose testing, Doctors appointments etc and I know which direction I'm taking my health!

To blindly follow a path without knowledge of what can go wrong or what has gone right just doesn't make sense! The opportunity to take control of your life and health is one that you"ll definitely want to take! Seize the moment... Get back on the right track! If you need help, ask for it! Don't let it go! Your life may depend on it!

The time to live your dream of being healthy has to start today if you haven't started it yet... And... to reaffirm your dreams and goals daily, weekly, monthly and yearly is of the most important that will affect you, your family and your future! Don't second guess yourself... find out! Know where you're headed! set your goals and run with it!

Your future is in your hands! Act on your dreams today!
remember... You're worth it!
