Leigh Mitchell Hodges - burn brightly

However you have used gone days, you can start afresh each morning, if you so desire. You can use this day for consolidating past gains of spirit, brain and hand, or you can use it for tearing down the old structure of self and laying the foundations for a new building.

Each night of life is a wall between today and the past . Each morning is the open door to a new world-new vistas, new aims, new tryings...

However discouraging your days may have been thus far, keep this thought burning brightly in your mind- Life Begins Each Morning!

Letting Go Of Sorrow

"If I allow bitterness and resentment to fester inside, it will make my relationships guarded and unsatisfying. The more I close down to others, the more I become a stranger to myself.

Thought for Today - Live Fully

"They say 'only fools live to the full'. Because only fools go where most of us fear to go, only fools do what many of us spend our lives avoiding. You don't have to climb Mount Everest, or cross the world in ahot air balloon to live to the full. Simply enter each day with a commitment not to avoid anything or anybody who comes your way. Then your Everest will come to you, in the form of difficult people and challenging situations, and the only thing you will need to conquer is our own fear and evasions. And when you do conquer, you will know that you have lived fully, for there is nothing more exhilarating than overcoming our own obstacles which, if the truth were known, are always only in our own minds. When you turn to face these inner obstacles and challenges some people call this real courage and you certainly are no fool." ~Thought for Today-UK

Jack Canfield Quotes

"As you take a few minutes each day to quiet your mind, you will discover a nice benefit: your everyday, "ordinary" life will begin to seem far more extraordinary. Little things that previously went unnoticed will begin to please you. You'll be more easily satisfied, and happier all around. Rather than focusing on what's wrong with your life, you'll find yourself thinking about and more fully enjoying what's right with your life. The world won't change, but your perception of it will. You'll start to notice the little acts of kindness and caring from other people rather than the negativity and anger." ~Jack Canfield

"Be a student to those above you, a fellow traveler to those at the same level, and a teacher to those below you." ~Jack Canfield

"Begin each morning by resolving to find something in the day to enjoy. Look into each experience which comes to you for some grain of happiness. You can have a positive attitude about the events in your life. You can consciously choose to respond in a positive way to almost any event or circumstance-a positive attitude is simple a choice you make. People with positive attitudes-the ones who always seem to be happy , the ones who really seem to have a handle on things in their life. They are more fun, their energy feels great to be around, and they are operating at a higher frequency." ~Jack Canfield

"Decide what you want. Believe you can have it. Believe you deserve it and believe it's possible for you. And then close your eyes every day for several minutes, and visualize having what you already want, feeling the feelings of already having it. Come out of that and focus on what you're grateful for already, and really enjoy it. Then go into your day and release it to the Universe and trust that the Universe will figure out how to manifest it." ~Jack Canfield

"You are a living magnet. You literally attract the things, people, ideas, and circumstances to you that vibrate and resonate at the same energy frequency as yours. Your energy field changes constantly, based on your thoughts and feelings, and the universe acts like a mirror, sending back a reflection of the energy that you are projecting. The stronger and more intense your thoughts and emotions are, the greater the magnetic pull becomes. Now, this is not a process that requires any real effort; a magnet doesn't "try" to attract anything-it simple does, and so do you! You are always in the process of attracting something into your life." ~Jack Canfield

"You and you alone are responsible for taking actions to create the life of your dreams. Nobody else can (or will) do it for you." ~Jack Canfield

Thought for Today - Barriers to Love

"Whatever is in your heart that is not clean, not true, will ultimately begin to act like a wall, obstructing the natural flow of love. People who say that there is no love in their life, are being blocked by this wall. Actually there is love, but they just can't accept it. Ego is the clearest example of this. Ego limits the flow of love by placing conditions on the love you give and receive. Ego uses love to satisfy its own needs and desires. It produces a love which is deceptive, one which brings only temporary satisfaction. Ego does not allow you to experience true love or share it. In fact, ego is capable of destroying your ability to feel love altogether." ~Thought for Today-UK

Gerry Spence Quotes

"I would rather have a mind opened by wonder than one closed by belief." ~Gerry Spence

“Children, as persons, are entitled to the greatest respect. Children are given to us as free-flying souls, but then we clip their wings like we domesticate the wild mallard. Children should become the role-models for us, their parents, for they are coated with the spirit from which they came- out of the ether, clean, innocent, brimming with the delight of life, aware of the beauty of the simplest thing; a snail, a bud....” ~Gerry Spence, Give Me Liberty: Freeing Ourselves in the Twenty-First Century (from Goodreads)

“I know love is worth the time it takes to find. Think of that when all the world seems made of walk up rooms and hands in empty pockets” ~Gerry Spence, Of Murder and Madness: A True Story (Goodreads)

“Love is how we feel toward those who show us that which is lovable about ourselves.” ~Gerry Spence, The Making of a Country Lawyer: An Autobiography (Goodreads)

“Skepticism, not cleanliness, is next to godliness. Skepticism is the father of freedom. It is like the pry that holds open the door for truth to slip in.” ~Gerry Spence, Seven Simple Steps to Personal Freedom: An Owner's Manual for Life (Goodreads)

“The most formidable chains are forged from beliefs. Ah, beliefs! Beliefs tear out the eyes and leave us blind and groping in the dark. If I believe in one proposition, I have become locked behind the door of that belief, and all other doors to learning and freedom, although standing open and waiting for me to enter, are now closed to me. If I believe in one God, one religion, yes, if I believe in God at all, if I have closed my mind to magic, to spirit, to salvation, to the unknown dimension that exist in the firmament, I have plunged my mind into slavery. Test all beliefs. Distrust all beliefs.” ~Gerry Spence, Seven Simple Steps to Personal Freedom: An Owner's Manual for Life (Goodreads)

“The old saw that "sticks and stones can break my bones but words will never harm me" does not, in fact, hold true.” ~Gerry Spence, How to Argue And Win Every Time: At Home, At Work, In Court, Everywhere, Everyday (Goodreads)

“The true test of liberty is the right to test it, the right to question it, the right to speak to my neighbors, to grab them by the shoulders and look into their eyes and ask, “Are we free?” I have thought that if we are free, the answer cannot hurt us. And if we are not free, must we not hear the answer?” ~Gerry Spence, Give Me Liberty: Freeing Ourselves in the Twenty-First Century (Goodreads)

Quotes on SKILLS and TALENTS

"Creativity, intellect and talent are the main sources of eternal youth." ~Sophia Loren

"Use those talents you have. You will make it. You will give joy to the world. Take this tip from nature: The woods would be a very silent place if no birds sang except those who sang best." ~Bernard Meltzer

"Both men and women are afraid of making the wrong choice. The difference is that women will make a choice and commit, while men will string along a woman hoping for some sign and when it doesn't appear or he misses it he bails. There are exceptions, but when you make a choice you can very often find the solution for any problems that come along. THAT is committment, not shopping for a trouble free relationship." ~Lorrie Kelsey Cramer

"Most people who fail in their dream, fail not from lack of ability but from lack of commitment." ~Zig Ziglar

"The greatest thing you will ever give to the world is your commitment to leave what you find in better condition than the way you found it. Leave a single light in a place where there was once darkness so those coming behind you may see further and begin where you left." ~Tonny K. Brown

"To be successful in life, one will have to be willing to give his best. He has to translate his ability into work done with commitment and reap the fruit of hard work." ~Anil Sinha

"Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of creation there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: The moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would otherwise never have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one's favour all manner of events and meetings and material assistance which no man would have believed would have come his way. " ~W.K.
