Positive Progress

As grand as any achievement may be, it is not the ultimate.
Because it opens up new possibilities for even greater

That's why it makes no sense to be envious or resentful of
the accomplishments of others. Those accomplishments each
increase the number of opportunities available to you.

Rejoice at the success of others and you instill the power
of that success within yourself. Be thankful for positive
progress and you will become part of that progress.

The most successful people are those who encourage and
enable others to succeed. Truly appreciate real value and
you'll find new ways to create more value.

Abundance has no limit. A life that is richly lived creates
much richness in the lives of those all around.

Every achievement you see, see as a beginning. Appreciate
the richness that is, and you'll be creating even more.

Its Always Yours To Choose

Nothing can get you down unless you let it. Don't let it.

You see those parts of life that you choose to see. Choose
to see what inspires and empowers you.

The life you experience is your own unique interpretation of
what it means to be alive. The possibilities for joy and
enrichment are endless.

Life is what you decide it to be. All the stuff on the
outside is trivial compared to the true purpose that lives
on the inside.

Even the smallest thing can inspire you when you're ready to
be inspired. Any circumstance can be your opportunity to
move forward and to add true richness to your world.

Live the joy in every moment. It is always yours to choose.

Authentic Person You Are

One of the most painful types of conflict is also the easiest
conflict to avoid. It is the conflict you have with

When the person inside is in conflict with the person you
are on the outside, it drains your energy and damages your
credibility. Yet in an instant, you can be rid of that

All you have to do is be completely honest about who you
are. Drop the pretense, and you rid yourself of a heavy

Stop pretending to be someone you're not. For even if you
could manage to be convincing at it, you would gain nothing
of real value.

That real value lives in the authentic person you are. In
your sincere and deeply felt passions you will find life's
most delightful and fulfilling treasures.

There's no need to live in conflict with yourself for even
one moment longer. Let the true you shine through, and
fulfill the wonderful possibilities that are uniquely yours.
