You are a creator by design and creators MUST create something if they are to live on purpose and feel that their lives have meaning. My hope is that the lessons contained herein will inspire you. While it’s important to plan, realize that change only occurs in the current moment and only when we actually DO something different! The current moment is the only moment that we have any access to or any real control over. Click video to receive inspiration from my ’Finding the Jewel Within You’ poem.

Choose your inner circle wisely because they will influence you the most. Their thoughts become your thoughts. Their beliefs and attitudes influence your outlook. Their faith and support can either encourage you to go for your dreams or their negativity and fears can limit, discourage or hold you back.
We all need mentors, muses, and master mind groups. Some people are blessings and keepers; others are there only for a reason or a season.
So, when people show you who they are, believe them! You’ll know the difference by how they treat you and make you feel. Some make positive deposits into your life joyfully and consistently and you feel good, while others only make withdrawals leaving you in the negative and feeling disheartened.
On the crowded highway of life, you’ll get run over if you just stand still on the freeway. Sure, one option is to move off onto the shoulder where the disabled cars are, but you can’t procrastinate on the sidelines forever and expect to reach your desired destination. Don’t waste time worrying about the detours or roadblocks that you might encounter. Just focus on the destination, have faith and get going in the direction of your dreams.
Continue to do the right thing, for the right reasons and you’ll be fine. Ask, believe, and act. You can’t re-do the past and you don’t have access to the future. If you wantsignificant change in your life, all you have to do is learn to create it every moment of your life.
"Greater than the prayer is the spirit in which it is uttered, and greater than the spirit in which it is uttered, is the spirit in which it was carried out." Bahai
Each of us must dig inside, discover our God-given greatness and, once our talents are found, share them with others. Emotions move us. Think joy, love and service as you work. How you choose to carry on the affairs of life will determine your happiness. Goals are not just about success, it’s about building character, rendering joyful service, and apprecia-tion of the opportunities that unveil themselves in your path.
So be joyful and don’t worry about failing. I firmly believe that we would not have a vision or an inspiring dream unless it were possible for us to achieve it. If you see it, it’s yours so proceed ethically.
If you do not like what you see, have the faith to change it. At any given time, there will be opportunities and possibilities within your grasp. And, at the same time there may also be an equal or greater number of pitfalls and potholes. You must make sure your decisions are not fear-based. You can let the darkness paralyze you or proceed in faith.
I choose to proceed in faith. I can do this because I know that I am not alone and will be guided around the potholes in life.
I encourage you too to follow your dreams. Hold on if you’re convinced you are on the right boat, and jump ship if you aren’t and start swim-ming in the direction of your dreams. Click to enjoy Seven Steps on a Faith Walk.
