    8 IMPORTANT POINTS ABOUT LIFE (quotes from my books)

    1) We are all here for a purpose.
    “No matter what he does, every person on earth plays a central role in the history of the world. And normally he doesn’t know it.”

    2) The only thing standing between you and your dream are your fears.
    “Don’t give in to your fears. If you do, you won’t be able to talk to your heart.”

    3) Mistakes are part of life.
    “When you find your path, you must not be afraid. You need to have sufficient courage to make mistakes. Disappointment, defeat, and despair are the tools God uses to show us the way.”

    4) Do not seek love outside of you.
    “Love is not to be found in someone else but in ourselves; we simply awaken it. But in order to do that, we need the other person.”

    5) When you change, the whole world changes with you.
    “When we love, we always strive to become better than we are. When we strive to become better than we are, everything around us becomes better too.”

    6) Mind your own business.
    “Everyone seems to have a clear idea of how other people should lead their lives, but none about his or her own.”

    7) Nobody’s responsible for how you feel or don’t feel.
    “In love, no one can harm anyone else; we are each responsible for our own feelings and cannot blame someone else for what we feel.”

    8) Embrace your authenticity
    “If you want to be successful, you must respect one rule – Never lie to yourself.”

  3. Jackie Brown says:

    We are being encouraged to ask ourselves what it important to us. Each of us has a different set of values and beliefs in regard to what it means to be successful, and they revolve around what we believe to be meaningful in our life.

    There are a lot of changes ahead for all of us, and this year will be big for realising and taking action towards making our dreams come true – which means we must know what we really want. It’s not so much about the “how”, the “when” and the “buts” nor is is about fixing an attachment to the fine details. We all know we have made plans that sometimes have gone awry but we have ended up in a much better place! So, it is more about connecting to the essence of what we really want in life.

    Do we want adventure? Do we want security? Do we want freedom? Do we want respect, compassion, understanding and empathy? Do we want to be fulfilling our true purpose for being here? Do we want joy and laughter? Do we want family, friends and love?

    If we are constantly seeking to validate our success in comparison with others, we will always be faced with disappointment because we all have a different measuring stick for what this means.

    The man with the most material and financial stability is not automatically the happiest man, but then perhaps his goal is not to be happy – but to be surrounded by his material treasures and financial security. This is his driver, and he makes it happen. This man will have had to sacrifice a lot to make this happen and we cannot comprehend what those sacrifices may have been and what these sacrifices have cost him in the bigger picture. The man with the most is working hard to create the appearance of happiness and this provides him with the satisfiable illusion that he is successful, and in turn he pretends he is happy. Or maybe he is really and truly happy – how can we know?

    If these are the things we really want in life over everything else, then by all means we should go and make it happen.

    However, if what we are seeking is a deeper meaning, purpose, drive and connection for living, then we have to re-evaluate what it means to be successful. We may have to think about what we are willing to sacrifice in the quest for our dreams. No matter what path we choose to follow in life, there will always be sacrifices that need to be made. It’s only when we are disconnected to who we are, that the sacrifices we make are greater than what we achieve. When we follow our hearts, yes – we will still need to make some tough decisions and sacrifices will need to be made, but it is always worth it. Always.

    The right path is not always the easiest one.

    We often worry about what we will have to let go of in the pursuit of happiness. The amazing thing is, there is a Divine Contradiction that always seems to be at play which is this:

    When we are tuned in to who we really are and what we really want, when we are living a life we are passionate about and we are in love with, surrounded by people we are in love with – we discover we don’t need all those things we thought we did. We when let go of the need to control our circumstances and our need to have it all, it is often in that moment that we get everything we ever hope for. AND MORE! Beyond our wildest dreams!

    We are being encouraged to ask ourselves that very important question – what do we want? There are no right or wrong answers. What we want is connected deeply to who we are and we don’t need to justify, explain or defend what our souls are calling out to us. It is all relative and reflective of our own personal journeys and what we are here to do.

    We each have a key for success. Each key is different, each key fits a unique door that is made just for us that leads to places that only we can go.

    “What is success? It is being able to go to bed each night with your soul at peace” ~ Paulo Coelho
