This goes out to Refinedone, Canary and Anonymous

Thank you so much. Your comments mean a lot to me.
I was actually getting discouraged but I feel more inspired
just because of what you said. THANK YOU.

Thought Provoking Ideas

1. Nothing stays the same. All conditions are temporary,
and how they change depends on the choices I make.

2. Action to try to make things happen is hard work, but
action taken from a place of love and pure inspiration is
living at its grandest.

3. Living from and in the moment is being mindful of
thoughts, words, feelings and actions.

4. There are infinite variations in how people see any single

5. Labels like right or wrong, good or bad, evil or holy serve
to separate people, one from another. In truth, there are as
many shades of gray between those opposites of labels as
there are people.

6. The differences in life are contrast that drives decision.

7. Abundance abounds. There is enough of everything for
everyone; there is no reason to fear running out.

8. Suffering, pain or struggle is not a requirement of life.

9. Passion is not expectation, and expectation is not passion.

10. True faith comes from knowing that no matter what
things look like, all is well and will turn out for the best.

3 Secrets of Turning Failure Into Success Immediately

1.Change your mental model of "success" and "failure".
Most people operate with the following mental model:
they see themselves in the middle, with success on one
end and failure on the other. They do everything they
can to move toward success and away from failure. What
if, rather than seeing failure as something to be avoided it
became a "stepping-stone" on the path to success? In
other words: Success is the destination. Failure is how
you get there. To achieve significant success in today's
world, failure is not just a possibility... it is a requirement.

2 Intentionally increase your failure rate.
If it's true that the more we fail, the more we succeed, then
the immediate goal should be to intentionally increase your
failure rate! Yes, this is a counter-intuitive, reverse thinking
philosophy... but it works! Intentionally increasing failure is
the basis for the "Go for No" concept. "Go for No" means the
more people that tell you "no" the closer you will get to
ultimate success - or in other words, "yes." Most people, if
they actually counted the number of times they hear "no"
during a typical day or week would be shocked to see how
low the number actually is.

3 Set "No" goalsEveryone sets success goals; few people set
"no" goals.
And that is what we suggest. But how about setting
goals for the number of times we fail? For example, rather than a
salesperson setting the goal of having 2 prospects say "yes" to
them, they set the goal of being turned down10 times. Imagine
the first two prospects they called on said, "Yes!" Rather than being
done (having hit their "yes" goal) they'd actually be behind because
they still have 10 noes to go!
