You Have the Power

You have the power to accomplish anything you wish, if only you believe in yourself. I know what you're thinking. You're thinking that when it comes right down to it, you don't have any power. But I'm here to tell you that's bull. You do have power. You have all the power in the world, and the best way to access it is to believe in yourself. Once you believe in YOURSELF and believe that you can do anything, you WILL do anything. Think about it, look at some of the amazing things you've accomplished so far.

Surrounded by Negative People

Have you ever known a person who is perpetually down?  Someone who seems to just suck all the happiness from all around you?  I remember when I was a kid, there was a cartoon on Saturday mornings - The Pebbles and Bam Bam Show.  One of the characters was named Hardrock Schleprock, and he walked around with a storm cloud over his head, bad things were always happening to him and he was perhaps the saddest most depressed character I've ever seen.  I always thought he was just a typical cartoon exaggeration, but he wasn't. There are people like that in real life.  People who are always sad and depressed, or people who are always angry and bitter.    They're what I call fun-suckers.  They suck the fun out of EVERYTHING!  How do you DEAL with people like that? It's simple, really.   For every negative thought or comment they voice, turn it around and make it a positive.  You can do this out loud, or you can do this internally.  Also, smile - a LOT.  A smile is such a great defense against negativity.  Don't let these fun-suckers get you down.  Happiness and positiveness are so much more powerful than negativity. …

You are a Miracle

You are a miracle. Never stop believing in miracles, never stop believing in yourself. When you think of miracles, you can call to mind all sorts of miracles of a religious type. Jesus turning water into wine, raising the dead and feeding so many people with several loaves of bread and a couple of fish are just a few from Christianity Manna falling from the heavens, and Moses leading his people across the desert are miracles that are taught in both the Christian and Jewish religions. I know there are tons of examples from all sorts of religions, but I'm not familiar with them (shame on me) and cannot speak of them. Then there are the sports miracles we hear about, Doug Flutie's Hail Mary pass (it was a thing of beauty) and the 1980 Men's olympic hockey team with the iconic cry of "Do you believe in miracles?" the Boston Red Sox finally beating "The Curse of the Bambino" with their World Series win in 2004 or the New England Patriots finally winning their first Super Bowl in 2003. We see miracles in the news every day too. The rescue of the Chilean miners - something which had the…

Music Music Music

Music is such a powerful influencer of our moods.  I mean think about it, it's SO true.  Mellow music tends to mellow us out, while happy upbeat music gets our juices going.  One of the first positive messages I sent out on the mailing list went something like this:   Turn up the music and dance – louder, come on louder, I still can’t hear it.  Ah that’s better, now let’s boogie!   That's my challenge for you the next time you're feeling down.  Put on something LOUD and cheerful and upbeat and start dancing around and singing.  See how you're feeling.  It works.  Come on...try it.  You KNOW you want to.

I suppose by now you’re thinking…

That this person is a nut - either that, or they've read the book The Secret and it's totally taken over their mind. Well, I'm not a nut - well no more than anybody else.  I have read The Secret, and it DID change my life, but not in the way you're thinking. I haven't manifested unlimited wealth and prosperity, or my dream car, or my perfect life. What The Secret did for me was to encourage me to change the way I think.  But it encouraged.  I did the changing.  I'm the one who decided that I could sit and dwell on the ho hum gloomy glum stuff that was going on in my life, or I could take 2 minutes and find the good and happy and positives in my day. That's all I want people to do - find the good in their day and CELEBRATE it.  Even if it's finding a penny on the ground.  I mean, hey, that's one more penny than you had previously, and it's one more penny closer to that million dollars, right? Be Positive, and remember - today has LIMITLESS POSSIBILITIES! If you want to receive the daily positive thought in…

Being Grateful

A big part of looking for the positives is being grateful for what you have.  Stop focusing on what you don't have and celebrate what you do have.  Be grateful from the top of your head, to the tips of your toes.  It is such a great mood enhancer.  When you get up in the morning, be grateful that you have a bed to get out of.  When you're brushing your teeth, think about your day...what do you have to be grateful for? Be grateful you have clothes to wear, that you have food for breakfast or that you ahve a job to go to.  Be grateful you're alive.  Even if you feel weighed down by stress and responsibility, try and turn it around.  Be grateful you have people in your life that depend upon you. I'm grateful that I am exploring the limitless possibilities in my life!  I'm grateful for all the friends I am gaining on myspace.  I'm grateful that our mailing list and our daily positive though at is growing by leaps and bounds and that people are enjoying the daily positive thoughts. I'm grateful that you're taking the time to read this!

The Power of a Positive Thought

So today, I'm feeling really glum, but that's okay.  You know why?  Because moods are moods - they pass.  It's very simple really.  I can choose to sit here, and feel glum and dwell on my sad mood, OR, I can look at my day, and at my life and find the good in it and CELEBRATE.  What?  You don't think you have any good in your life?  Of course you do.  You're alive!  That's a biggie and not one to be underestimated!  It's a sunny summer day, I have lots of great friends.  See there are lots of great things upon which to focus.  So instead of sitting her dwelling on the glumness I'm going to go out and look for the positives.  Would you care to join me? Come celebrate your postiveness at our livejournal community located here

The Birth of a Community

In order for any of this to make any sense at all, you’re going to need a little back story.  It really all starts with a television program that was on the air about ten years ago.  It wasn’t a hit show, it wasn’t critically acclaimed, but what it did do was introduce me to some of the most wonderful people I have ever known.

The first season this show was on the air, I quickly became enamored of it, and turned to the new toy in my house, the internet, to find other people who also liked this show.  I did, and it was quite possibly the smartest thing I’ve ever done.  I “met,” online, a group of people who have become an integral part of my life.  We’ve been there for each other through marriages and divorces, births and deaths and everything else that goes along with life.  Some of us have met in person, some are just a name on a computer screen, but all of us are friends.

You Have the Power

You are one with the power that created you and that power has given you the power to create your own circumstances. It doesn't matter what your religious beliefs are, or what deity you worship or how. We were all created by some type of power, and we have that power in us. We have within us, the power, or the ability to create whatever existence we want for ourselves. All it takes is a little faith and some hard work. Yes work. But what's cool about that hard work is you have the strength, you have the ability, you have the power to do that work and to accomplish your heart's desire.

Write Your Own History

Churchill said “History will be kind to me for I intend to write it.” Write your own history. Your life is yours alone, as is your destiny. Don't let somebody else carve out your path to your future. Choose your own path and blaze your own trail toward your destiny. Sure you may hit a detour or a bump along the way, but enjoy it, and be secure in the knowledge that if you want it badly enough, you will achieve it.
