When I was a little girl, we lived in an old farm-house in upstate New York that did not have running water or indoor plumbing. Fortunately, we had a pump outside. But, before we could get the fresh water out of the well, we had to first “prime the pump.” Please enjoy my video message of 12 Lessons I learned from "Priming a Pump!"

I will always have the memories of “priming the pump” to remind of the value of saving a little, working hard, having the willingness to sacrifice now for the bigger goal in the future, and to remember to take time out to enjoy what I’ve worked for. A few lessons I learned were:
1. Always have faith. 2. Don’t get totally empty. 3.Put something in to you get anything out. 4.Be ready. No procrastination allowed. 5. Don’t stop until you reach your goal. 6. Save a little for later! 7. Enjoy your spoils.
There is no credit in the well of life, meaning “No, give me now and I’ll pay later.” You must pay the piper first.
Either our decisions and input matter and creates or contributes to our reality or it doesn’t. Either we can initiate, create, mold and shape our reality or we have to wait for input from our environment and always be in a reactive mode. All the results we see now had cause. The question to always ask is, "What did I do or NOT do to cause this to happen or NOT to happen?
Think about it, if you are a victim, then you have no control over the outcome. If the person victimizing or causing you pain chooses not to change their ways, you’re stuck! I’d much prefer to own some part of the outcome. That empowers me to change my circumstances.
Dale Carnegie wrote, "It is the mind that makes the body rich. "No man can become rich without enriching others."
We are powerful; our every thought, word, and action stems from an intention and has a far reaching effect. Each effect is enriching others or depleting them. Each time you think a thought, open your mouth to speak, or act, you are sending powerful energy out into the world. You then become part of what is healing our world or part of what is hurting it.
Each step, each word, each thought, and each action must be infused with grace, kindness, and love for others.
Each morning when we awake, the world is ready to present to us what it wants us to focus on. The newscasters, marketers, reporters, and radio personalities have been up before the crack of dawn determining what they want us to think about.
What we think about, we help to bring about!They know that some will start their days with the television. Others will start with family demands, coffee and a newspaper, or perhaps with the phone calls, video games, social media, email, or the dramatic issues of those people around them. That is why it is so critical that we each learn to guard and direct our own thoughts! If we don’t; others will!
