You Can Use the Law of Attraction to Create Your Dream Job

February 8, 2016

Do you need a new job? Are you either unemployed or seeking the ideal job to produce the satisfaction and prosperity you are looking for?

I know the feeling. If you are familiar with the Law of Attraction, you know you can use it to not only find the right job for yourself, but to create anything you desire in any area of your life.

If you are looking for the ideal job, how can you use the Law of Attraction to make it happen? I received an email from personal development expert Christy Whitman. She shared a video where she explains with specific detail how to use the Law to find the ideal job. I felt the need to share this information with you. As always, I invite you to please share how this helps you:)


A Sure Way to Success and Prosperity

January 17, 2016

 

Success and prosperity is something we all crave in life. We all want to do well in life, achieve our goals, and experience financial freedom to enjoy life. If only there was a guaranteed formula to bring this about.

I am here to remind you that there is that formula you are looking for. If you know the Bible, you have probably read or heard this verse numerous times. I know I have. Yet if you are like me, you often feel good, but quickly move on not allowing yourself to fully realize the power in these words.

The key verse I am sharing is Joshua 1:8. I like the New Living Translation version best. It says… Study this Book of Instruction (The Bible) continually. “Meditate on it day and night so you will be sure to obey everything written in it. Only then will you prosper and succeed in all you do”. God’s word is amazingly powerful. Every part of it is true. I know I have been guilty of reading the Word and knowing it, but not applying and doing it. Only recently have I realized the amazing blessings we receive when we completely live by God’s Word.

If you need further proof of this, just look in the next verse. It says… “This is my command—be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go”. It means you do not have to fear. Here’s the bottom line…when you consistently live out the words of the Bible with confidence, knowing that God is with you every step of the way, you can only succeed!

As mentioned, I am realizing this more than ever now. That is why I feel the desperate need to share this with as many people as possible. Take the Bible to heart. It is inspired by God, and every word of it is true. Know that God will not go against His own word. He will do what He says He will do!

I challenge you today to find time to learn God’s word. When something stands out, stop and spend some time meditating on it. Then ask God how you can apply it to your life and live it out. If you ask, He will tell you. Doing this consistently will lead to the success and prosperity you are seeking. Even when and after it arrives, continue to seek God and live by His words. Your life will be filled with joy and miracles. Enjoy the blessings:)


Use Your Imagination to Dream God’s Dreams

January 13, 2016

 

The following is part 2 of an excellent sermon I heard recently about the power of imagination. Following these guidelines can change your life. I invite you to listen, apply, and enjoy:)

Most people don’t imagine because they’re afraid of failure, but doubt and fear neutralize what God wants to do in your life. Pastor Rick explains in this message how to let your imagination be governed by faith, not fear.

Using God’s Great Gift…The Power of Imagination

January 12, 2016

I am a firm believer in the power of imagination. Much of the information provided on this site is based on that. Recently, I heard an incredible message from pastor Rick Warren about God’s gift of imagination. It’s the best presentation of this that I’ve ever heard. There are three messages. I will provide one each day.

Daring to Imagine, Part 1

The Bible says you need to focus on the things that will last — the things you can’t actually see with your eyes. So how do you focus on things you can’t see? In this broadcast, Pastor Rick teaches why your imagination is essential to living by faith.

3 Ways You Can Please God Today

January 10, 2016

 

I don’t know about you, but nothing pleases me more that when I know I’ve pleased my God. To be honest, He is always pleased with us, whether we know it or not. He is pleased with us even during our darkest moments. He loves us more than we’ll ever know.

Even though God will always love you abundantly and be pleased with His wonderful creation, there are actions you can take to get God’s attention and put an even bigger smile on His face. I take these from Psalm 9:

  1. Praise Him with all your heart
  2. Tell of the marvelous things He has done
  3. Be filled with joy because of Him

In addition to bringing joy to God, taking these 3 actions regularly will add blessing to your life. I have learned often enough, that when I am thankful for the things I have in life, I am given more things to be thankful for. Likewise when I live with a joyful heart, I am provided more reasons to be joyful.

One of the reasons I share information on this blog is because I want to share the great things God has shown me and the wonderful things he has done for me. My hope is to inspire people facing similar situations and feelings that if God brought me through it, He can do the same for them. He can do the same for you.

Joy and gratitude are contagious. Not only are our lives blessed when we practice them, but other people around us are blessed as well. You can not only be a blessing to God, but to many others by simply practicing these three attitudes. So be thankful, joyful, and quick to share the many ways God has blessed you. It WILL make a difference. Enjoy the blessings:)

 

 


Fixing Your Eyes on God

January 6, 2016

Recently, a pastor at another church spoke at a breakfast I attended. I was very interested in hearing what he had to say for two reasons. One, because I know people who attend his church and have very positive things to say about his messages. Second, he is a former goalie that played in the National Hockey League in the mid to late 80s. Hockey has been one of my favorite sports for almost 40 years, so the opportunity to meet and listen to this man was one I looked very much forward to.

As expected, his message was excellent. The most interesting and memorable part was when he talked about a time where he had great success the season before. As a result, he was awarded a lucrative contract. Expectations were highest for him at the start of the new season. However, for some reason, he couldn’t stop the puck anymore. In fact he said he couldn’t have stopped a beach ball. With all of these expectations, his confidence was lost, and he was playing worse than his pre-professional days. Finally, the captain of his team took him to dinner and described what he saw as the problem. He said that when the goalie was playing his best, it was because he never took his eyes off the puck. In fact, some teammates even laughed at how, when the referee was holding the puck and tossing it up and down, the goalie’s head was going up and down with the puck. That’s how focused he was! Sure enough, the next time he played, he kept his focus squarely on the puck and nothing else. As a result, the success he had had returned, and he helped take his team to a very high level.

Before I share my point, I will share one more story. One of my favorite movies of all time is Forrest Gump. I watched this movie again recently. I had forgotten that Forrest was a very successful ping pong player. It was simply because he was instructed to keep his eye on the ball and focus on nothing else. He followed the advice, and won international tournaments and received major endorsements as a result. All of this was because he did not take his eye off the ball at any time.

Where does this lead to my point? The heart of the pastor’s message with his hockey story was that our focus on God needs to be just like the professional goalie. The Bible even tells us to keep our eyes fixed on God to be the most we can be in this life. When we keep our eyes locked on God like the hockey puck or ping pong ball, instead of the distracting circumstances around us, that is when we receive our greatest blessings and successes in life. That is how we are a blessing to others. That is how we make the most out of the will and destiny that God has for us.

Sometimes it is not easy to avoid the distractions and obstacles. Especially now, hockey goalies have players trying to distract them mentally and physically, doing anything to prevent them from stopping the puck. It’s the same for us. I believe people on this earth and even the devil himself are trying to block our view and prevent us from focusing on God. These distractions may get some pucks past us. However, the more you keep focusing on God, keeping your eyes fixed on Him, the more successful you will be in avoiding the distractions, and leading you and those around you to victory.

So what is your choice today? For me, it’s to keep my eyes fixed on God and the greatness of His kingdom. If you make this choice, it won’t eliminate the negative situations. Some will hit you and hurt! However, it will lead you to the blessings God has intended for you. You will be victorious and experience the joy that was meant for you. After all, to use one more hockey term…that’s your goal! Enjoy the blessings:)


The Powerful Start to a Positive Attitude

November 22, 2015

 

This article is another in a series I am writing about the positive attitude attributes found on the self-reflection report card in Jeffrey Gitomer’s book “The Little Golden Book of Yes”.

In my opinion, this one is where it all starts. It is the concept of self-belief. The definition of self-belief I found through various sources is the confidence in one’s self and trust in their own abilities. Another one added “the belief you can do things well”.

It makes sense that a positive attitude and positive results start with the belief and trust in one’s abilities. The more you believe and trust and in yourself, the more likely your attitude and outlook on life will be good. When your attitude is positive, it leads you to take the necessary action towards your goals instead of finding reasons why you can’t.

One question often asked is by those who especially have lacked self-belief during their lives. It is often very difficult to just turn on the switch and start believing in one’s self when life has been filled with one doubt and failure after the other. There are many ways to change this attitude. For this article I will provide my thoughts and share a very helpful article from another author.

One giant step to developing self-belief is to know who you really are. I have been reminded of this constantly in the past year and a half. Yes, you are a body, frail that it might be, that is on this earth for approximately 80 years. However, according to the Bible, within that body is the kingdom of Heaven itself. The very power that runs the universe dwells within each one of us. This Godly power never fails. Even if you have failed countless times (I know I sure have), the God within you NEVER fails. When you rely on this all-knowing, all-powerful energy and guidance, your doubts and failures will quickly turn to faithful victories. Don’t let anyone tell you that it’s impossible or you can’t do it. Know that the God power within you can guide you and make it happen. Isn’t it a great peace to know that it’s not all up to you? Knowing this in itself is a great step to self-belief. When you turn to your “God self”, you can’t go wrong.

In addition to realizing that the God of the universe dwells in you and has your life completely in control (if you let Him), I found another source of excellent information. This article, “7 Steps to Self-Belief” is a great guide to turning your attitude around and enhancing your self-belief. Even following some of them will help you.

I will say once again that I can’t think of any better first step in improving your attitude than self-belief. Even if you’ve never had it before, you can make positive changes today. Know that the kingdom of Heaven dwells in you, and spend time each day motivating yourself, changing the negative voice inside your head, and  visualizing the success you desire. You  can do whatever you set out to do. You just need to believe it. Enjoy the blessings:)
