PUBLISHEDPRESS RELEASE TITLE
8/18/2018Daily Motivation - I am creating the life of my dreams
Have you ever felt like you were treading water, not getting ahead? Do you feel like you are not getting closer to reaching your dreams? Do your dreams look a bit hazy? Has the excitement worn off? Perhaps it is time to take stock of where you are, and put some excitement back into your life by dusting off your dreams, and rekindle your desire to reach for the top.
8/17/2018Daily Motivation - Deep in their roots, all flowers keep the light
In our early years in this world, our heart brimmed with joy and wonder. The innocence and purity that dwelt within our sincere heart guided us in whatever we did. That is why our childhoods hold the fondest memories for most of us. However, the blissful existence did not last, it just fizzled out as the years went by.
8/16/2018Daily Motivation - The counterfeit and counterpart of nature is reproduced in art
At first glance one might think that we are talking strictly about artistic values. In fact this is all about life, how we see it, and how it expresses through our feelings and actions. People through their artistic expressions see life in different ways, and what ends up on their canvas is the way they perceive life, how they feel, and how their attitude shapes their thinking.
8/15/2018Daily Motivation - Every flower is a soul blossoming in nature
Be the Flower blossoming a Happy Life - Each one of us wants to lead a happy life. We all appreciate that a positive attitude feels much better than a negative one. But, for some strange reason, we tend to be drawn and attracted to the negative side of life a lot of the time. How can we establish a more positive attitude, and make it a daily habit?
8/14/2018Daily Motivation - A soldier will fight long and hard for a bit of colored ribbon
During wars, soldiers fought hard and some died for their countries. When they came home, they were recognized and decorated with ribbons of honor, which showed their levels of achievements, and ranks in the military. In the world of business or in community involvement, people are also working hard, and fighting for the recognition as a leader in their field.
8/13/2018Daily Motivation - What would life be if we had no courage to attempt anything
Trying something new can be little intimidating. Perhaps you are thinking of starting your own business, or changing to a more lucrative career. Maybe you want to try something less daunting, like learning how to dance, or singing in front of a group, or finally asking a friend to a dinner date. So many maybes, so many possibilities - yet we often are quick to shut them down with a "what if..." followed by a negative thought.
8/12/2018Daily Motivation - As I look at my past I release all regret and disappointment
Lay Hold of What is Rightfully Yours by Releasing Past Disappointments. Let’s face it, the past will always be with us. Have you been letting it determine how you lead your life? Don’t you think it’s time to get rid of the tag of disappointment, and replace it with one that shouts victory and success? It’s time to get the spring back into your step.
8/11/2018Daily Motivation - Once you choose hope, anything's possible
Sometimes we are faced with difficult situations, and it seems like life is turning against us. At times, when we expect the best, things may turn out different. We may not meet our expectations, or perhaps even face a failure, when we were so sure of our success. We become heartbroken and even lose sight of our goals or dreams.
8/10/2018Daily Motivation - The young man know the rules, but the old man knows the exceptions
As young men or women, we want to learn a trade, or a profession, something we are interested in. For example, we go to a business college, and become knowledgeable about matters related to business. After graduation, we may think that we know everything, because we are trained in our field. We may even think that we can be considered experts, and that we do not need advice or help from anyone.
8/9/2018Daily Motivation - Shame is pride's cloak
In the modern world of instant gratification, also fueled by the pressure to impress others, some people have developed an uncanny way of boasting of their achievements or flaunting their wealth. This breed of otherwise modern and sophisticated persons 'mask' their low self-esteem by downplaying their success with the hope of someone noticing it, and praising them for their humility.
8/8/2018Daily Motivation - I am strong enough to make tough decisions
Every day of our lives we are faced with situations that require us to make decisions. Most of those are of a minor nature. But at times, we have to make tough decisions. Those tough decision can be the ones that will affect our life, and perhaps that of our family, and beyond. It is those kind of decisions, that define our beliefs and our character.
8/7/2018Daily Motivation - I stay calm in the midst of every life storm
There are times when you may feel that a storm is taking you down. Some grave circumstances that make you feel like you cannot survive. Worse, difficulties can happen overwhelmingly on top of one another, like a hurricane of events in your life!
8/6/2018Daily Motivation - I prepare myself for anything that life brings my way
There are many challenges that we will face in our lifetime. Some challenges we will be able to deal with quickly, because they are small enough, while others will be more daunting. We have to be prepared to deal with anything that we may face on our life journey. I am not trying to scare anybody, but let's face it, life is not smooth sailing. Some of you may have noticed that already.
8/5/2018Daily Motivation - Take the first step in faith. You don't have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step
Not knowing what lies ahead in our future, should not keep us from looking ahead at what is possible for us. What is your dream? What is it that you really desire? Are you afraid to take the first step out of your comfort zone, to go after your dream? Are you afraid that you might fall? Although sometimes it may be hard to get back on your feet once you fall, never forget that you - and only you - have the power to get back on your feet, dust yourself off, and confront whatever comes your way, stronger than before.
8/4/2018Daily Motivation - Be the change you want to see in the world
When looking at the world today, we see things that we don't like. Things that, if we had the power, we would change for the better. We see people today going through life unhappy. Unhappy with themselves, unhappy with their financial situation, and they really see no way of changing things. Insecurity, injustice, and intolerance are just some of the factors causing people pain and suffering.
8/3/2018Daily Motivation - Never walk away from failure. On the contrary, study it carefully and imaginatively, for its hidden assets
Most of us have a constant cloud that hovers around us as we go through our daily routines. In fact, failure is probably our greatest fear, and we often find ourselves avoiding risks, some of which could be opportunities in disguise. We hold on to a failing business because we can’t seem to live with the thought of being regarded a failure. Most of the fears stem from the fact that we are so concerned what others might think of us.
8/2/2018Daily Motivation - If you don't like something, change it; if you can't change it, change the way you think about it
Throughout our daily living, at home or at work, in social gatherings, or our relationships, we encounter situations that cause issues. Have you found yourself, at any point, thinking about what might have gone wrong? How things happened, and what happened next, or how things could have been prevented?
8/1/2018Daily Motivation - The Secret of Happiness is to make others believe they are the cause of it
One of the definitions of happiness is, "Happiness, gladness or joy is a mental or emotional state of well-being defined by positive or pleasant emotions ranging from contentment to intense joy." That sounds like the ultimate experience we can have in our life.
7/31/2018Daily Motivation - My life has been full of terrible misfortunes most of which never happened
With the state of the economy, and the negative events happening around the world, worry seems to be present in most people's lives. Worry is not limited to world events, though, but we also worry about little things. We hope it does not rain, our hair will get wet. Or worry about the car breaking down. Worry is a negative emotion. Negative thinking and negative emotions will create negative effects in our lives.
7/30/2018Daily Motivation - Whenever I hear It can't be done, I know I am close to success
How do you react to obstacles in the path to your success? Do you get angry, fearful, or do you get more determined? What is your instinct when everyone around you says, this is not going to work, or, this is as far as you will go? Do you just fold your tent and give up? Or does this bring out the best in you?
7/29/2018Daily Motivation - Talent wins games, but teamwork and intelligence wins championships
We live in a day and age where talent is important. But teamwork is exponentially more important. A prime example of that happened in the 2015 NBA finals. LeBron James was outstanding throughout the series, but by himself he could not beat the opposing team. One of the media headlines was, "LeBron James had the worst AWESOME performance in NBA Finals history". It is teamwork that wins championships.
7/28/2018Daily Motivation - Ability is what you are capable of doing - Motivation determines what you do - Attitude determines how well you do it
We can achieve anything, absolutely anything, with the right attitude. Do you believe that? A positive attitude is the only thing in life that guarantees our success. Our ability, our skills will only take us so far. We can upgrade our skill set, in order to achieve more. What drives us to do that? Our success attitude!
7/27/2018Daily Motivation - One problem with gazing too frequently into the past is that we may turn around to find the future has run out on us
The past has very little to do with what will happen in the future. If we had failures in the past, we learn from them and shut the door. If we had successes in the past, we use them as stepping stones, but we don't keep looking back. That part of our life is gone. To achieve our future dreams, we must concentrate on our goals, and on the plans we laid out to achieve those goals.
7/26/2018Daily Motivation - A man who wants to lead the orchestra must turn his back on the crowd
We live in a day and age where it is treacherous to listen to the crowd if you want to be successful. In order to lead the orchestra or to become that successful entrepreneur, the top executive, or the great artist you always wanted to be, you need to turn your back to the crowd. You will never be a success when following the crowd. The most effective leaders in business, or in any field of endeavor on our planet are those who have learned to do the things that the crowd is unwilling to do.
7/25/2018Daily Motivation - To Fly, We have To Have Resistance
Nothing of value in life comes easy. As human beings we frequently face uncertainty, difficulties, and unpleasant situations, many of which potentially may threaten to undo us. But it is only the wise among us, facing that resistance to move forward, can profit from difficulties or losses, and in essence, use them as stepping stones to achieve bigger and better things in life.
7/24/2018Daily Motivation - Low self esteem is like driving through life with your hand brakes on
Have you ever been so eager to drive to some place and as soon as you hit the freeway, your car simply refuses to pick up the speed? You get frustrated and wonder what is gong on with your car, only to look down and see the hand brake is still engaged. That can be the same feeling of frustration you have, when you are not making any meaningful progress in your life. Even though you believe you have what it takes to become great, you just can't seem to get it together.
7/23/2018Daily Motivation - To repeat what others have said, requires education, to challenge it, requires brains
It takes someone with a good memory to remember what others said yesterday, or even a few minutes ago. A typical student would remember what their teacher said during yesterday’s lesson. To remember something, we need to have proper explanation of a subject. Do we have to reason, or think much about it to remember what other people told us? Most likely, not. This is the act of imparting knowledge to someone, or simply, education, and this happens when others explain something to us.
7/22/2018Daily Motivation - When you come to a roadblock, take a detour
The journey of a thousand steps always begins with the first step. Along the way you will encounter numerous challenges. Challenges that will put your resolve and willpower to the test. Regardless of what kind of challenges you are facing, your positive reactions to those challenges, coupled with your iron will and determination will see you through your entire journey. In the end it is that strong will and determination that makes the difference between winning and loosing.
7/21/2018Daily Motivation - Success doesn't come to you, you go to it
The Secret to Guaranteed Success in Life! Can you name a single thing you have done today to get you closer to your success? If you are like most people, you have a big dream and many goals you would like to achieve in your lifetime. It might be becoming a Millionaire, being the president of a major corporation, or making a scientific discovery.
7/20/2018Daily Motivation - A bird does not sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song
Within each one of us exists a unique individuality, that is waiting to be expressed. When a bird sings, she is not doing it simply because she can sing, but she sings because she has a song that she wants to shout out to the world. It is the song that comes straight from the heart. That song expresses the birds individuality and it shows her whole authentic, meaningful existence.
7/19/2018Daily Motivation - Always do right. This will gratify some and astonish the rest
When we do the right thing, from simple things like helping an elderly lady across the street, or returning a lost wallet, to bailing someone out of a life-threatening situation, we make people sit up and take notice. Whether people like us or not, they will be pleased with our noble actions. Our good friends will look at us with gratitude, seeing what we have done. While our detractors will be absolutely astonished that we were capable of such a humane act.
7/18/2018Daily Motivation - The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new lands, but in seeing with new eyes
A good portion of our lives is spent trying to find answers to important questions that affect our lives. Answers that may help us with the challenges we face on a daily basis. In this relentless quest, many of us are naturally inclined to look for what we have yet to see in our search for solutions to life's challenges, in other words, we are out "seeking new lands".
7/17/2018Daily Motivation - Too many people overvalue what they are not and undervalue what they are
Malcolm Forbes is one of the more influential people in the world. He is also a very successful entrepreneur, and is well known for publishing the Forbes Magazine. One of his better known quotes is "Too many people overvalue what they are not and undervalue what they are". His quote is very well portrayed at a poker table. Great poker players know how to act strong, even though they may hold weak cards. Their opponents may think that their own hand is not good enough to win, so they fold.
7/16/2018Daily Motivation - You can't shake hands with a clenched fist
As in times past, wars, riots and crimes seem to continue to mar our generation. It becomes more and more important that we find the path of peace and friendship, that can be followed by people within or surroundings and beyond. To achieve peace and gain trust in each other, an open mind and open hands are essential. We cannot shake hands with a clenched fist, because it is a clear sign of anger that show our preparedness to fight. We must overcome our anger. If we want others to come to us in peace, we have to be peaceful.
7/15/2018 Daily Motivation - The secret to success is making your vocation your vacation
Success and Happiness has little to do with the Promise of a Big Paycheck. People tend to pursue a certain profession because of the promise of a good paycheck. It seemed that we have linked happiness and self-satisfaction to money or the chance of earning more.

7/12/2018Daily Reflections - When I start a new venture, I focus on progress
When I operate with my attention on moving forward, I am more likely to achieve success. I avoid getting bogged down by the chaos of planning and preparing for future projects. I keep my mind free of frustration, by focusing on the end result. Tunnel vision has its place in these scenarios. Instead of getting involved in many ventures at once, I work towards one at a time. This approach allows me to commit my undivided attention and energy.

Their lives are examples of endless effort leading to victory. I place great value in the mentorship of my employer. Self-made people prove to me that anything I place on my heart is achievable.

7/10/2018Daily Reflections - I push myself to go further
The sky is the limit for me. I discover new things about my strengths and abilities, whenever I push myself beyond my comfort zone. I am a new person each time I put aside the urge to think with limits. When I open myself up to my truest potential, that is where discovery happens. I get a lot of enjoyment from doing things for the first time.

7/9/2018Daily Reflections - I am unique and that is my gift to the world
I embrace my unique qualities. There is a tendency for people to want to conform, but I believe this is a mistake. It is the unique qualities of each individual that are the most valuable to the world. The characteristics we all share are very common, and might be viewed as less valuable. The things that make me different from others, are the most important.

Regardless of the season, I commit time each day to being outside. When I look up at the clear, blue sky, I smile in awe of its magnificence. Its ability to appear the same and create the same impact each day is admirable. I appreciate having that example to emulate in my daily life. Feeling the frigid temperature of winter air reminds me how blessed I am. It shows me that the roof over my head is more than many others have.

7/6/2018Daily Reflections - My strength multiplies when I choose to stand on my own
There is power in numbers because support from others provides courage. But there is greater strength when I choose to be independent, and realize my own power. Although I value the support of my friends and family, I recognize that leaning too much on them results in dependency. I like being able to fend for myself. I know that I am strong and valuable.

It is good to nourish my body from the inside out. When I eat consistently healthy, my physical performance is maintained at a high level.

When I nourish myself from natural sources, my energy is long-lasting.

7/2/2018Daily Reflections - Listening to the stillness of the night gives me clarity
In the midst of daily chaos, it is difficult to think clearly. But at night, in the stillness, I gain insights. I see answers to my challenges when I soak up the rejuvenating spirit of the quietness. I make plans for the following day, and my future. When I listen to the silence, I am alone in my thoughts. I am able to make wise decisions because I am locked away from external influences.

I just need to open my eyes to see them.

I find it easy to accept compliments. There are many good things about me, so it is only natural that I receive compliments. I am grateful when people have nice things to say. I enjoy the moment, smile, thank them, and then move forward with my day. I avoid becoming arrogant when I receive several compliments over a short period of time. It is easy for me to remain humble and grounded, regardless of the many compliments I might receive.

The past is gone, so I focus on what is to come. I see my road map clearly when I shift my view to the road ahead of me. When relationships end, it is sometimes sad, but I know that everything happens for a reason. Instead of sulking about the loss, I reassure myself that goodness is to come. I believe that letting go of someone from the past makes room for a new relationship that is nurturing and fulfilling. Knowing this enables me to peacefully lay the past to rest. Anything that is meant for me is already on its way.

My decisions to eat are dictated by hunger and health. Many people eat based on emotion and cravings but, I am free of these issues. I only eat what my body needs to function in a healthy manner. I eat when I feel hungry, and avoid eating more than I need to feel full. On those rare occasions I overeat, I ensure that I eat less at the next meal. It is all about balance.
