“It is better to risk starving to death then surrender. If you give up on your dreams, what’s left?” – Jim Carrey
Imagine with me, if you will, that a major pandemic outbreak is rapidly and fiercely spreading throughout the entire world. It’s an airborne pathogen, that has become known as Epidemic Z. A large percentage of the global population has been infected and the virus shows no signs of being contained any time soon.
People are dropping like flies all around you and once you are infected you only have 24 hours to live! The worst part is that you are starting to show some of the symptoms and are afraid you may have contracted the virus.
In a panic, you lock yourself inside of your home and quarantine yourself from the rest of the world. As you desperately pray for a solution or cure for this deadly virus, you’re startled by the loud, shrieking beep alerting you to the radio broadcast message that is about to air.
“Victory is reserved for those who are willing to pay it’s price.”– Sun Tzu
After attending the awesome Victory Motorcycle ride this past weekend, I started to think a lot about VICTORY. Not only victory, but the high price of victory…. and I’m NOT merely referring to the cost of the sweet bikes you’ll see featured in this article…
What I’m talking ’bout is the price we have to pay to be victorious in life!
We all want to live the dream; to be successful in every aspect of our lives. We all want the beautiful, loving wife or strong, loyal husband, the luxurious home, the sweet, pimped out ride and the lean, hard physique of an awakened warrior or goddess.
We ALL want it (or some version of it)… yet only a small percentage of us will ever make it our reality!
“The FDA purposely does not require labeling of GMO food, since no one who understands the issue would ever purchase it. This makes it all the more difficult to locate healthful food.”– Byron J. Richards
Ever wonder how many products in your favorite grocery store contain GMO ingredients?
If you’re anything like the average consumer – then probably NOT! And that’s exactly how these corporate food conglomerates want to keep it.
The big marketing brains behind these companies know that you will be utterly shocked and repulsed to learn that MOST of the food products they are selling to you and your family are loaded with genetically modified ingredients; ingredients that have been banned in many other countries.
“What we have loved and enjoyed, we can never lose… all that we love deeply, becomes a part of us.” – Helen Keller
My dog died today when I made the final decision to put her down. It was a tough decision for me… and at first, I had high hopes that she might recover from what I hoped was just a cold or infection.
Although, after a few vet trips, blood test and the seriousness of her symptoms – it became imminently clear that Soma was in a lot of pain and wasn’t going to make it.
It was her time to go and my time to let her go!
Once I realized this it became a lot easier for me to make the call and take her to the emergency vet to put an end to her suffering. Even then, saying goodbye to my sweet, baby Soma was a lot harder than I ever imagined it would be.
The long-term study of GMO foods is going on in real time and in real life. Not in a lab.”– Ziggy Marley
The question whether we “should” be consuming genetically modified foods (GMO’s) or even consuming animals fed GMO foods is a pressing concern these days.
The majority of people go about their daily lives totally oblivious that they are consuming GMO ingredients.
Do YOU know what genetically modified foods are? Do YOU know if they are safe? If NOT, then this article will educate you about these critical topics.
The reason this issue is of extreme importance is because we must make the right choice soon, before it’s too late. Unless we act promptly, being GMO FREE will be close to impossible and organic foods will become highly scarce.
“Wilderness is not a luxury, but a necessity of the human spirit, and as vital to our lives as water and good bread.” – Edward Abbey
As I started out on the trail, slivers of the sun shone through the tall, almost naked trees. I peered out across the calm, stillness of the lake as it glistened in the fading warmth of the autumn sun.
My two dogs, oblivious to the magic of this all, were more interested in the smells recently left at the base of a near oak tree. 😆
Suddenly, I knew this was a special moment…. a moment that needed to be captured and remembered on film. As I took out my now obsolete iPhone 3Gs, I wondered…
Why? What made this moment any more special than the other hundred hikes I’ve had around this very same lake on this very same trail?
“We cannot think of being acceptable to others until we have first proven acceptable to ourselves.” – Malcolm X
Elevating ones self worth is the first step in increasing the amount of success that surrounds you. The things you want in life must first be created from within yourself before they can be experienced in the physical world. This article is part two in the series about self worth.
This post focuses on ways to raise self worth, thereby allowing you to invite more success, love, and prosperity into your life. By focusing on the steps below, you will help to remove the subconscious resistance that is holding you back from your goals and creating the life you want to live.
“Don’t look to society to give you permission to be yourself.”
– Dr. Steve Maraboli
Most of us are waiting for someone to give us permission to live our lives. We’re waiting for someone to tell us it’s okay to be ourselves.
We’re waiting for our internal “mommy” and “daddy” to give us their metaphoric nod of approval.
Whether it’s our figurative or literal parents or any of the other prominent men and women in our lives…. so many of us are waiting for their acceptance, their agreement, and their RED Rubber Stamp of Approval in life.
“Self-worth comes from one thing – thinking that you are worthy.” – Dr. Wayne Dyer
Does life seem to be one big struggle, to obtain the prosperity, love and happiness you feel you deserve?
Do you try with all your might to succeed, yet there always seems to be something holding you back or dragging you down?
If so, there could be areas of low self worth that need to be addressed within yourself in order to move beyond the patterns of self destructive behavior that is influencing your life on the subconscious level.
“When everything seems to be going against you, remember that the airplane takes off against the wind, not with it.”
– Henry Ford
The next time you get into your car to drive off, wherever you may roam, I want you to stop for a second to pay homage to Henry Ford.
Yes, he’s the guy in the picture over there and the man who created the Ford Motor Company, making it possible for YOU to have your very own personal automobile. He did it because he had an idea he believed in, and he never gave up, even when other people laughed at him.
