beautiful-garden-wallpaper-pvwelexw… plant BETTER seeds.

Nothing will grow in your garden unless it’s nurtured and nourished.

Often times we complain about not having what it is we want in life, but we don’t realize that it’s by our own hand.

It is very simple…

If something is important in your life, you have to nurture it. 

If you do not nurture it, you will lose it. 

If you lose it, you have no one to blame but yourself. 

Beautiful gardens do not just grow on their own. They require the right seeds – quality time, patience and most importantly, a dedication to nurturing.

Ask yourself what is it that you are lacking in your life? And what seeds are you planting to correct that? If all you are doing is complaining about what you don’t have, I assure you, you will never have it. You never just get what you want because you think you deserve it, you will only get it if you put the necessary seeds and subsequent nurturing into place allowing it to grow and prosper in your life.

Lifeless gardens never yield bountiful harvests. If there is something you want in your life, plant the right seeds and learn to nurture them into being. When you do the work, your life’s garden will blossom beyond your wildest imagination.

.. is the ONLY way to succeed in life.

You have a choice everyday as to whether you will allow yourself to get tripped up on the stumbling blocks OR whether you will use them as stepping stones to a new and better future.

As human beings, it’s common behavior to let the stumbling blocks in our lives take us down and destroy us. We get caught up in the drama of the stumbling block and forget that it is our responsibility to get back up and make our lives better because of what we have experienced. We sit there for months/years blaming the stumbling block for throwing us off course. And what does that do for us? How does that help us or make things better for us? It doesn’t.

No stumbling block is in place to make a mess of your life, it is only in place to help you become stronger, more sound and more stable in yourself.  Stumbling blocks can also be in place to alter your direction in life when it’s time to go down a new road. Regardless, stumbling blocks are ALWAYS the impetus for great change and success. They should never be viewed as obstacles along our path. Once we learn how to turn those stumbling blocks into stepping stones, we realize that we can now rise higher then we ever thought possible. Time to start stumbling!

your-life-gets-better-by-change3… it gets better by change.

Life changes. Nothing stays the same. Nothing is ever MEANT to stay the same. As humans, we are meant to grow and evolve and that doesn’t happen by staying still. Movement initiates change. But sometimes the idea of change seems overwhelming, so we don’t allow it. We would rather accept the dysfunction that is familiar to us then to offer ourselves up for the unfamiliar. Hence we get in the way of ourselves and our growth.

Do you want your life to change? Learn to get out of the way of yourself. Stop trying to control the outcome. Life is meant to change naturally. If it is not changing for you, you might be holding onto something/someone/some thought that is keeping you back from moving forward.

Do you want freedom? Do you want change? Do you want to feel as if you are living the best life you can? Get out of the way of yourself. Allow life to change for you. Don’t hold onto things and people that you think are the answers. They may not be.

As soon as you learn to let go and let life be, you will take more chances, undertake more risks, and initiate newer courses of action that are unfamiliar to you. This movement is what brings about change. Change never comes about through complacency and waiting. No more waiting for your life to change, invite change in, step up to the plate and let go of old habits and thought patterns that are clearly not serving you. If things have not changed in awhile, it is time to do something new and it is that movement that will usher in change. Time to change, what are you waiting for?

take-one-step… the universe will do the rest.

We don’t become huge successes over night. Nor do we find our passions, our soul-mates, or our life purposes over night. The journey to become ourselves can take a lifetime. But that lifetime begins with one step. 

We often judge ourselves for where we are and what we have accomplished. You do not need the perfect solution for your problems, the perfect game plan for success or the perfect strategy to find a mate, all you need to do is take one step, any step in any direction will invite the powers of destiny to join you. 

Once you open the door and open your energy to “the next step”, the universe will support you on your path. You are never alone. Taking one step releases energetic blockages that might otherwise be holding you back. Taking that one step (especially when you do not know where it will lead you) will bring opportunities and connections to you that you would have never dreamed of.

The journey of a lifetime always begins with one step. You do not need all the answer to take that one step. You just have to take it. No more fear. Your life begins the moment you can take that one step. What are you waiting for?

S146_life_isnt_about__82737.1307586309.1280.1280… assures that it NEVER will.

Nothing ever comes from inactivity. The universe does not understand inactivity. A body in motion must always stay in motion if it is to go anywhere. A body at rest, by definition never moves forward.

If you are waiting for your life to just come together on its own, without your direction, or inspiration or even intuitive guidance, you will be waiting a very long time. You must be an active participant in your life in order to manifest what you are seeking. This means you need to show initiative to create any newness in your life. You need to get up out of the place that is not working for you in order to start the wheels of change.

There is always a destiny in place for you but it requires that you WALK your path of destiny. Destiny will not just deliver life to you. It assumes that you are living your life and moving through your experiences for better or worse. This activity will bring you to the next phase of your life on schedule. But to fight the flow of life, by giving up and staying still and stagnant is to throw away the gift that you were given.

Waiting for your life to come together is a means of passive self-sabotage and it usually happens when someone has been relatively traumatized by a situation and they decide it’s better to take no action then to risk possible wrong action.  The only wrong action in life is inaction because it keeps you locked to where you are.

Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass, it is about learning to dance in the rain. Life is to be lived. And to live is to be an active participant in your life. Time to pick it up. Life is simply too short to let it pass you by. Time to get active! The dance awaits.

images-2… pick it up.

No one is responsible for your happiness but YOU.

You are the only one holding yourself back. Your obstacles to greatness are all imagined. Don’t allow your fears to keep you from being the best you can be.

There are no victims in life. There are only those who do not want to rise to their life lessons.

If you find your life is not where you want it to be, do whatever you need to do to get it there. The actions you take will always reap benefits. It is the inaction that creates resistance to what you want. In other words, the energy of action moves you forward (any action) and the energy of inaction creates stagnancy.

You can have whatever you want in life. You just have to pick it up and make it happen. The more you allow yourself to sit out on the bench and watch others succeed while feeling badly about yourself, the more you stay stuck.

Giving up never gets you what you want. Getting out there in any capacity will always change the dynamic for you. Don’t think you need the perfect strategy to succeed. You only need to get up off the ground and make a move – any move. That move supports your intention to succeed and the universe will respond in kind.

Life is too short to wait for your dreams to come true. If your life isn’t exactly where you want it to be right now, do something about it. The action of intention will always bring you success. The stronger your actions, the stronger the level of change you will bring about. What are you waiting for? Your best life is waiting for you – get out there and make a move.

Life is too short to NOT love what you do. Period.

But we do it anyway. We plug away unhappily doing things day-in and day-out. We sit at our desks idly pushing paper and responding to emails. We work hard to clear off our desk but not as hard at asking ourselves if we actually enjoy the life we have created for ourselves. We keep plugging away at our unhappiness and telling ourselves that “one day it will be better.” Newsflash… it never gets better until you do something about it. If you stay contented in the position you have put yourself in, then that is what you continue to receive. In essence, you are telling the universe, “oh, don’t worry about me, I do not need change. I am content here. All is good.”

Life is meant to be LIVED. Truly lived and experienced and ENJOYED. There is no waiting for one day to magically appear. There is no waiting to live. The living is now. Why waste precious moments doing anything that you do not love? Why not find what you love and focus on that? Why tell yourself that you can’t do that and make up a whole host of reasons why you are not qualified?

Life is in the living. It happens every day in every moment. While you are sitting back waiting to be happy, remember right now IS your life. If you are not happy in the now, CHANGE THINGS. Don’t wait for a magic miracle in the future. The miracle is happening now.
