It’s Never Too Late…

I love my mother in law. She is the epitomy of what I would call the “meek.” She is kind, gentle, full of love, and as caring as they come. She wouldn’t harm a soul. She’s been through a lot in her life. She comes from a very poor background and had the responsibility of helping her mom take care of her 12 brothers and sisters in the home. Consequently, she had to drop out of school right after the 5th grade. With little educational background and not much guidance, she eventually found a job making shoes, from scratch. For 20 years of her life, she would weave together shoes, behind her sowing machine, for days on end. Once completed, she would carry the couple hundred pound bag of shoes down to the bus stop, take it to the subway, and ride the subway down to the vendor. Month after month, year after year, that’s all she did.  She did not know of anything else…or so she thought.

Today, she lives with my wife and me in the States. Since her shoe making days, she has learned English, earned her driver’s license, has her own car, is involved in the local church, takes dance lessons, and is studying for her citizenship test. This might not seem like a lot to you, but  from the perspective of a 61 year old lady, it’s everything.  In her words, “I never imagined I could push my limits this far let alone think I would be taking dance lessons one day.”  What sparked the change?  She started believing in possibilities and not limits.

It’s never too late to start anything, no matter how old you are or how far you think you’ve gone down your current direction.  Ask yourself a simple question:  Are you complete?  And if the answer is “no,” I challenge you to take some active steps towards completeness.

Embrace this truth:   Your soul is infinite, limitless and ageless. Live through your limitless soul, not by the finite boundaries of society.

Affirmations

I will strive for completeness

Fulfillment comes when I ask, “What if?” and take steps

Are you an elephant hunter?

Breaking into the realm of ‘limitlessness’  and infinite possibilities sometimes requires that you help others overcome the same limiting obstacle that you are struggling with as well.  Along the way, you become stronger in mind, body and spirit.   It helps you look beyond your problems and will give you the positive energy and attitude you need to be successful, not only for you but for others.  The ‘Circle of Life’ is such that what you give ultimately comes back to you ten-fold.

Embrace this truth; no matter where you are or what state you are in, there is somebody out there who could benefit from your service to them.

In doesn’t take much to make a difference, just my willingness

You can be a hostage to your ego or a host to God-Wayne Dyer

“Confronting my Elephants” is about confronting all things limiting, all things “EGO” in your life. It’s about a paradigm shift away from limiting beliefs and towards God. It’s about focusing on truth. It’s about work. Lots and lots of hard work. It’s about doing the work required to strip away the things that don’t complete you, that limit you, and reigniting the things that are fully you, that help complete you and fill your cup.

More than you might realize, you are in a battle, with yourself. I am no exception. That battle is literally between your ego self versus God who is in you. Here’s the question of all questions: Who are you going to strive to become more like? Who are you going to become more of, your ego-self or like your Creator?  The choice is yours as the choice is mine.

Affirmations

I strive to act and think ways that only build me up

I will brush off those who try to create resentment in me or in others

Risks worth taking

Life might not be predictable, you might not know where the next turn is going to lead you, but should that stop you from taking risks, a leap of faith, going for the gusto?  Nothing worth having in life comes easy.  You are worth it.  You deserve it, really.  I call it being “positively” selfish.

I believe this to be true:  No one is capable of fully serving another without being complete themselves.  Have you ever come home from a hard day’s work, completely exhausted?  How was it for your family, your kids, or your loved one?  I’m sure they didn’t get the best of you.  Serving and giving your best to others is a lot like the family analogy, especially when it comes to living limitlessly.  Your cup has to be full if you are to serve and live completely.

This means that you need to do whatever it takes to fill up your cup.  Do it so others can see the complete you, in all of your glory.  Do it for you.  Live out who God created you to be.  There is no better time than now.

 Affirmations
I focus on what I know:  I was created to be great
Selfless serving comes naturally when my cup is full
I will do everything within my power to become whole
