"Babe Ruth had to step up to the plate many times before he hit his first home run. We will all fall. This is not a shortcoming, nor is it a mistake. It’s part of the process. We are destined to fall, but we are also all destined to succeed. Our greatest triumphs often come at the heels of our most painful failures." * Babe Ruth Fenway Park
Down Days "Everyone has moments they feel depressed or aren’t in the best of moods. Part of behaving in accordance with the Light is to show mercy in times like these – not only to others, but also ourselves. No one benefits from feeling the pressure to be perfect all the time. Allow for the down days. They are an important part of the process."
If you believe in something, it’s worth fighting for. There will be tests along the way. There may even be times it seems all hope is lost. Just remember that every “no” brings you closer to a “yes,” and every failure brings you closer to success. No matter what, you’re always closer now than you were before.
"The unity we create with others is what activates the universe and produces the blessings in our lives. Today, respect the ideas of others, even if they differ from your own. Give the same time and passion to their thoughts as you would your own. Once you have internalized their point of view, go back to your own thoughts. Do you still feel the same way ?" Karen Berg
Transforming Our Curses To Blessings "There is a secret to transforming our curses into blessings. In moments of difficulty, it’s not enough to just say, “It’s all good,” or “This is for the best.” The spiritual work is to seek the treasure in the situations that seem so messed up. It may take time, but if you are persistent in your search, you will discover the hidden blessings thereby transforming the curse."
"There is nothing which can bind my unconquerable spirit! Nothing can diminish the certainty of my dreams. I have given freedom to my thoughts, and wings to my imagination. I have unleashed the unlimited potential that is within me". --Shad Helmstetter
