Greatness is a choice – My Thinking Corner

Your Greatness, Your Dreams, Your Life, Quotes, Life Lessons, Wisdom, Motivation and Inspiration

The unblemished truth about our lives is that we are who we think we are, therefore, if we are dissatisfied with who we are in our present time, then we must change our thinking.

Reaching for the greatness in you is a choice. The greatness is a given, but it takes your service to bring it out. You’ve got to run after it.

It’s easy to sit down and make wishes, but success is achieved by ordinary people who make fewer excuses, who procrastinate less. The small things in life add up to the bigger picture, each day counts. Everything you do must be done to the best of your ability, even in the smallest things like picking up your own trash.

Show up every day for life with your best attitude and leave the rest for the power higher than you. Life takes notice and the Universe rewards.

In Good Measure… Midnight Musings

Quote, LifeLessons, Wisdom, Your Portion, Poetry

Never forget that the measure you give,
is the measure you will receive.

You can’t sow corn and harvest pumpkins.
You can’t sow hatred and reap a bounty of love.
When you uplift others, you rise up with them.

However, when you spend time holding someone down,
you stay down with them because you need all your energy
to keep them pressed to the floor or the wall.

If only you can remember this,
apply it in your relationship with everyone that you meet.

You, my dear friend, will have a good measure,
pressed down, shaken and running over
added continuously to your life.

Quit IT! My Thinking Corner

Quotes, My Thinking Corner, Quit it

Quit carrying that baggage of guilt

it ain’t gonna buy you redemption.

Quit holding on to other people’s criticism

they have their own issues to deal with and ain’t perfect themselves.

Quit seeing yourself as not enough

nobody else can be you or as enough as you

Quit comparing yourself to others

your goal is to compete with yourself and be better than you were yesterday.

Quit bemoaning what yesterday could have been, it’s gone!

Look up to today and make it the damn best that you can.

Quit worrying about the future

when you are not done with admiring the present.

Quit holding on to your expectation of others,

it doesn’t belong to you and letting go will bring you peace.

Remember that though we are in this life together, your track belongs solely to you.

Brutal – Ronovan writes weekly haiku challenge

 

Image result for images of cheetah and gazelle

Life in the jungle is brutal

The Cheetah pursued with power and grace

The gazelle raced for her life

Image result for American flag

The race is not to the fleet,

neither power, a free gift

but wisdom from above trumps them all.
