Morning Cup of Joe – Miracle Mindset

20130826-071720.jpg

Guess what? I am here to tell you that it is perfectly fine to believe in miracles. Yeah, I said it. In fact, I dare you to start believing in them a little more. The reason I say this is because if you don’t start expecting miracles to show up in your life they may never start appearing. I learned the easy way by expecting blessings and miracles to happen to me based on the seeds I sow.

When we respond to the world in a negative manner the world will reciprocally respond ten times more negatively. We have all experienced it and it isn’t fun. I challenge you to choose to be more positive about life’s beautiful possible outcomes. Miracles happen every day. In fact, the daily miracle you experience currently may not be as clear to you as it should be.

Understand that when you were born you instantly became a miracle. Be mindful of the fact that someone didn’t make it that morning. Hence the miracle you instantly became. Every day we are blessed to share with the rising sun is another day to celebrate the miracle that is your life.

Remember to Celebrate Daily!™

Morning Cup of Joe – Complacency

20130729-222445.jpg

Attention, Attention! I need your attention for a few minutes. Time is all you have but unfortunately there is an end date. Yes, just like a carton of milk, all things expire. And the truth of the matter is we are not exempt. Well, there is good news; you do have this moment! You can choose to take control of your life right this second!

For years, I accepted things as they were; never really questioning the events around me. Never really asking any questions, sort of like many people do today. I was satisfied; yes, the dreaded “s” word. I had a great salary, great home, great friends; things were very comfortable; the dreaded “c” word. I was satisfied and comfortable; a recipe for disaster. Being comfortable causes complacency. When you are complacent, you do not leave any room for growth.

It is critically important that you don’t get complacent especially with the knowledge that all things change. Now, this message is not for everyone as many of you are perfectly content with where things are in your life. Rather, this message is for those who are no longer going to accept things as they are. This message is for those who are never satisfied and are always seeking new ways to get better.

It is perfectly normal to want the best this life has to offer. It’s not enough to want it, you have to go and get it!

Morning Cup of Joe – Creating Miracles

The world is filled with two types of people; those who make things happen and those who watch those who make things happen. I am going to ask you to make a choice, if you haven’t already, between the two groups. Obviously membership in one of the groups has its benefits and clear pitfalls in the other. Once you choose the “right” side, you cannot turn back nor are you allowed to terminate your membership at any given time. Your membership dues are simply based on the effort you put into making the world we share a better place. Your dues are your contribution to the world around you.

To make something happen not only takes an incredible amount of guts, it also takes a reasonable amount of faith. And by a reasonable amount of faith, I mean you truly don’t need much. Remember, that all you need is faith the size of a mustard-seed if you are having trouble moving your mountains. While your mind creates ideas, your hands must work to build them. Faith is the temporary belief in the unseen with the knowledge and expectation that you will inevitably see that which you focus so intently on. Allow your faith to guide and lead you.

From my experience, an abundance of rewards come when we take risks and maintain the necessary faith that it will all work out; eventually it does. Taking risks sounds riskier than it is; you simply have to step out on faith. Walk in the understanding that you were not born to fail. Whenever I see a void, I never wait to see if someone else can fill it. Never sit and watch as things happen, never. You have the necessary tools at your disposal to create anything yet so many of us are satisfied with someone else doing it for us; snap out of it. Grab your destiny by the horns and build your dream. What are you waiting for?

It takes no effort to witness a miracle; creating one is equally laborious.
