There is no need for me to feel overwhelmed. There is nothing for me to concentrate on other than the present moment. The past cannot be changed- it is done. It has no bearing on what is possible for me. I am free to decide, moment by moment, what I want.

The future is unknown. All I need to know about the future is that it will be beautiful and perfect, so long as I stay true to myself. All I need to do is focus on the present moment and think, feel, and act in ways that inspire me, uplift me, and feel good. Nothing is more important than I feel good here and now.

I can only do what can be done in the present moment. To be overwhelmed with things that cannot be done now is foolish and a complete waste of energy. There is no rush. There is nowhere to get to. My positive vibration and attraction is 95% of the work anyway. By remembering this, I release any negative thoughts and self-talk and instead replace it with thoughts of ease and encouragement. Be kind to yourself.

Overwhelment is an illusion. It’s my ego urging me to act on separateness, which is false. Everything is connected. You are already connected to what you want. The way to rendezvous with the manifestations of your higher self is to remember the truth. You are a divine piece of god.

I align my mind with the divine mind. And when I am in peace and confidence there is no need for justifying, no need for explaining. I am free to create anything I desire simply because I desire it.

Never beat yourself up for forgetting this. Simply remember and return to your inner knowing and peace. And from that place everything is perfect.

Here’s an insightful story about working smart. I frequently remind myself to make sure that I’m not just moving forward, but moving forward in the right direction.

Because all the misdirected action in the world won’t point you in the right direction. [Over] commit and you’ll end up like the pig. Act from inspiration and purpose and you’ll be the chicken.

A four-star general was taking a tour of the company that had been hired by the military to complete a major defense contract.

Despite the CEO’s assurance that this particular project would be completed on time, the general felt that the CEO’s team was not 100 percent committed to getting the job done.

He argued that they should remain at work and do “whatever it takes” to succeed, even if it meant working much longer hours, taking extra time away from home and family, and putting themselves under additional personal pressure and stress.

He told the CEO that understanding personnel management was like eating bacon and eggs for breakfast: the chicken was “involved”; the pig was”committed.”

The contractor smiled and said, “Well, that’s true, General-but the pig is dead, and the chicken is still producing eggs. I want my people to stay ‘involved.’”

The general backed down, and the project was completed on time.

My mother-in-law sent me this beautiful story that I’d like to share with you. Enjoy!

John is the kind of guy you love to hate. He is always in a good mood and always has something positive to say. When someone would ask him how he was doing, he would reply, ‘If I were any better, I would be twins!’

He was a natural motivator.

If an employee was having a bad day, John was there telling the employee how to look on the positive side of the situation.

Seeing this style really made me curious, so one day I went up and asked him, ‘I don’t get it!’

‘You can’t be a positive person all of the time.
How do you do it?’

He replied, ‘Each morning I wake up and say to myself, you have two choices today. You can choose to be in a good mood or….you can choose to be in a bad mood

I choose to be in a good mood.’

Each time something bad happens, I can choose to be a victim or…I can choose to learn from it. I choose to learn from it.

Every time someone comes to me complaining, I can choose to accept their complaining or…I can point out the positive side of life. I choose the positive side of life.

‘Yeah, right, it’s not that easy,’ I protested.

‘Yes, it is,’ he said. ‘Life is all about choices. When you cut away all the junk, every situation is a choice. You choose how you react to situations. You choose how people affect your mood.

You choose to be in a good mood or bad mood. The bottom line: It’s your choice how you live your life.’

I reflected on what he said.. Soon hereafter, I left the Tower Industry to start my own business. We lost touch, but I often thought about him when I made a choice about life instead of reacting to it.

Several years later, I heard that he was involved in a serious accident, falling some 60 feet from a communications tower.

After 18 hours of surgery and weeks of intensive care, he was released from the hospital with rods placed in his back.

I saw him about six months after the accident.
When I asked him how he was, he replied, ‘If I were any better, I’d be twins…Wanna see my scars?’

I declined to see his wounds, but I did ask him what had gone through his mind as the accident took place.

‘The first thing that went through my mind was the well-being of my soon-to-be born daughter,’ he replied. ‘Then, as I lay on the ground, I remembered that I had two choices: I could choose to live or…I could choose to die. I chose to live.’

‘Weren’t you scared? Did you lose consciousness?’ I asked.

He continued, ‘…the paramedics were great.

They kept telling me I was going to be fine. But when they wheeled me into the ER and I saw the expressions on the faces of the doctors and nurses, I got really scared. In their eyes, I read ‘he’s a dead man’. I knew I needed to take action.’

‘What did you do?’ I asked.

‘Well, there was a big burly nurse shouting questions at me,’ said John. ‘She asked if I was allergic to anything ‘Yes, I replied.’ The doctors and nurses stopped working as they waited for my reply. I took a deep breath and yelled, ‘Gravity”

Over their laughter, I told them, ‘I am choosing to live. Operate on me as if I am alive, not dead.’

He lived, thanks to the skill of his doctors, but also because of his amazing attitude…I learned from him that every day we have the choice to live fully.
Attitude, after all, is everything.

Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.’
After all today is the tomorrow you worried about yesterday.

We’ve all heard the popular advice to, “Fake it till you make it”, which is supposed to somehow engage the Law of Attraction to your aid.

However, the problem with faking it until you make it is that you end up not only lying to others, but lying to yourself.

Most teachers have stressed that one of the critical elements of living an inspired life and being a manifester is to first know and trust yourself. How can you do that when you’re lying to yourself??

Manifesting is not about tricking yourself or the universe. It’s about knowing yourself and the divine source you came from. It’s about thinking, feeling, and acting in resonance with your source. Only then can you be truly inspired.

Be thankful when you don’t know something
For it gives you the opportunity to learn.

Find a way to be thankful for your troubles
and they can become your blessings.

“When you feel enthusiasm to do something, it means you’ve lined up the Energy, and you are being inspired to take action from that point of alignment. When you don’t feel like doing it, don’t push yourself, because your effort is not worth it. But, when you line up the Energy, the feeling of procrastination goes away.”  -Abraham (Ester & Jerry Hicks)

Ever notice you’re just not good at something you hate? The word “enthusiasm” comes from En Theos, which means “God within”, so when you feel enthusiasm you’re accessing the power that creates worlds, so anything is possible!

The key is to try to cultivate enthusiasm whenever and however you can, but don’t feel badly if it doesn’t develop for something. Know that there is a valid reason for this and allow yourself the feeling you are experiencing. When the time is right and the subject is right trust that you will be enthusiastic.

God bless and namaste.

A feeling of being overwhelmed is your indicator that you are denying yourself access to all manner of cooperation that could assist you if you were not disallowing them.

As you begin to feel freer regarding the expenditure of time and money, doors will open, people will come to assist you, refreshing and productive ideas will occur to you, and circumstances and events will unfold. As you change the way you feel, you access the Energy that creates worlds. It is there for your ready access at all times.   — Abraham (Ester and Jerry Hicks)

I can personally attest to this being true. Every time I’m feeling overwhelmed, if I stop to evaluate why I’m feeling overwhelmed it is almost always because I am not leveraging all of my resources properly (or don’t seem to have any). I’m not delegating, I’m not asking for help, or I’m spending my time on something that will not produce a return.

For me, at first thought, feeling overwhelmed comes from the recognition that I have way more to do than I can possibly get done, but a little closer examination usually reveals that it’s what I think about the things I have to get done.

If I have 10 projects going on at the same time that are all going to earn me a profit, I feel excited and eager and someway, somehow- they all get done and I reap my reward. On the flip side, if I feel bogged down with paperwork, cleaning the house, and getting my taxes done I feel overwhelmed because there is seemingly no return for completing these tasks. The irony is if I just released my resistance to these tasks they would get done with the same “luck” that my other tasks do.

There are only three decisions to make about any given task:

  1. Decide not to do it / drop it.
  2. Delegate it to someone else.
  3. Do it.

If you decide to do it you might as well feel good about it or it’s going to be a lot harder on you. One more thing, be sure to make a decision; indecision can be just as bad as resistance.

When I was a Freshman in high school and new to weightlifting I really had an issue with flat bench. It seemed that no matter how hard I tried or how I positioned my body I could never get a good chest workout; I always felt it in my shoulders instead.

I tried hard to correct it and even asked several guys in the gym, but no one else seemed to have this issue. Then, one day, as I was benching a senior stepped in to spot me, so I could squeeze out a few extra repetitions. After I racked the weight he commented that I should be benching a lot more for my size. Feeling a little embarressed I mentioned to him my problem of not being able to use my chest when benching. I remember him chuckling and ordering me to start my next set.

As I was pushing up the weight he kept poking my chest with his fingers and saying, “flex it! flex it!” I racked the weight once more and asked what the heck he was talking about. I didn’t realize the significance of it then, but what he told me was a sage piece of advice I would use on a daily basis from then on. He told me to concentrate on using my chest and then I’ll feel it there. I thought this was a total blow off.. I mean, how could my concentration change the physics of the exercise?? He insisted and explained that what ever muscle you focus on will engage no matter what exercise I’m doing and in fact it is NECESSARY to focus my mind on the muscles I want to work out when pushing up the weight.

I seriously that the guy was nuts until he spotted me again. This time I tried my best to focus on my chest. While he was spotting me he’d constantly shout out, “chest! chest! chest!” and to my utter amazement I actually felt it in my chest! I couldn’t believe it!

I knew endurance was a big part of being tough in the weight room, but never did I think that you could focus your mind to work out different muscles.

Of course that is something of common knowledge today. Visualization exercises are used widely in professional sports and Olympic training. Peak performers of all kinds know the importance of focusing your attention to achieve the desired result. It doesn’t matter if it’s in the weight room or at the office. Always remember to focus your attention!

What do you get when you squeeze an orange??

Orange juice- and ALWAYS orange juice. Never apple juice, never grapefruit juice- only orange juice because that’s what’s inside the orange.

Now I ask you, when YOU are squeezed, what comes out of YOU??

Fear, defeat, hopelessness- or love, perseverance, and faith?

When you’re squeezed, what’s inside you comes out. The REAL you is always love and faith, but that may not be what’s inside you right now.

Make it your intention today to be filled with the real you..
