You Can Learn How to Let Go of Anger, Bitterness and Resentments

Forgiveness is a reflection of loving yourself enough to move on.
~Steve Maraboli~
Do you really want your pain to define your life or do you want to own your power to define your life? How much misery would you be feeling right now if you had never let go of past pain? Nelson Mandela stated, “Resentment is like drinking poison and then hoping it will kill your enemies.” When we hold resentment in our hearts it is a form of self-punishment. We've all been hurt, disappointed and angry over how some event unfolded in our lives when we expected otherwise. When our lives do not go as well as we hope, we have a choice to become bitter or better. We get to choose if we're going to be pitiful or be powerful. We have the power to choose if we're going to wallow in misery and unforgiveness or walk in love and exercise forgiveness towards ourselves and others. In A Wise Heart, Jack Kornfield writes, “Letting go does not mean losing the knowledge we have gained from our past. The knowl…

Next Level Greatness: Your Future is Not Your Past

Everything will change when your desire to move on exceeds your desire to hold on.
~Alan H. Cohen~
Oprah Winfrey states, “The great courageous act that we must all do, is to have the courage to step out of our history and past so that we can live our dreams.”Self-defeating assumptions about your past may seem hell-bent on keeping you contained to the way things are in your life. These thoughts consume the private conversations you have with yourself and the public conversations you have with others. They are reinforcing a reality you don’t want to continue to experience. And, they're disconnecting you from the innate strength dwelling in your spirit to take purpose- driven action towards manifesting the change you desire.
When you explain your circumstances from a disempowering perspective, this explanatory style can lead to learned helplessness. Learned helplessness is reflected in the belief that “whatever you do doesn’t work” according to Martin Seligman. Most voluntary behavior s…

Reclaim Your Personal Power!

Every test in our life makes us bitter or better. Every problem has within it the power to break us or make us. The choice is ours whether we become VICTIM or VICTOR.

How many times have you believed something about a situation, only to find out that your perception was inaccurate? The story you're telling yourself about why you are stuck reflects the perception you have of yourself and your experience. Your perception governs how you respond to every experience. Is it possible that if you adopted a more empowering perspective of who you are, who you can become, what you can do, what you are strong enough to handle and what you are worthy of experiencing that your outlook on the experience would change? Yes - it is possible. This possibility has within it the power to blow many of the limiting beliefs and misconceptions you have about yourself and your experience to smithereens. 

     Many breakthroughs come from simply believing a new idea has validity. Admitting the exis…

Destiny Calls

The great courageous act that we must all do, is to have the courage to step out of our history and past so that we can live our dreams.
~Oprah Winfrey~

Your destiny is calling, it's time that you stop putting it on hold and take the call. The difference between who you are and who you can become is what you do. And what you have to do to get where you want to be may not be pretty or may not come easy. When the path to fulfilling your destiny becomes difficult, it doesn't necessarily mean that your aspirations are impossible. When your challenges are great, your efforts must be greater than the challenge. Period.
There are three simple rules to realizing your potential:
If you do not GO after what you want you'll never have it. If you do not ASK, the answer is always NO. If you do not step forward you'll always be in the same place.
Nothing changes if nothing changes. Your future is not your past. Your destiny to achieve next level greatness dwells within the power of you…
