Thought for the Day ~ By Lisa Scott Life Coach

Step into your greatness…….the world makes room for a person of purpose.  Successful lives are motivated by dynamic purpose.  Once that vision and purpose are clear, decisions will jump at you.  Your words and actions will demonstrate that you know where you are going.  You are invigorated to pursue your purpose and lead and help others along the way.  This sense of direction is not a selfish thing but a way for you to serve your greater community, a way to show gratitude for the blessings in your life, and a way to bring true meaning to life.  A commitment to a  stronger inner life that can create a better outer life.

Joy, knowing, and love are things we feel….they are experiences which we control through the power of our mind.  Happiness, believing, and pleasure are experiences through which we can be controlled by events and people.  When you seek joy within, you are happy no matter what is going on in your life….and so joy comes through you, and happiness comes to you.   As this day dawns….remember nothing can happen for you in the outside world until you create the energy to attract it to and through your inside world.  So let you light shine brightly, and in that moment when there is nothing standing between you and the thing you resist the most, you will be forced to step into your greatness, because that is what life is asking each of us to do….Always do your best!

George Bernard Shaw said “This is the true joy of life – the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; the being a force of nature, instead of a feverish, selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy.  I am of the opinion that my life belongs to the whole community, and as long as I live it is my privilege to do for it whatever I can.  I want to be thoroughly used up when I die.  For the harder I work the more I live. I rejoice in life for its own sake.  Life is no brief candle to me.  It’s a sort of splendid torch which I’ve got to hold up for the moment, and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it on to future generations.”
