Without Courage

Without courage, all other virtues lose their meaning. – Winston Churchill

Courage isn’t the absence of fear, it’s acting anyway.

Where are you afraid, where you could act anyway?

Which of your fears are just excuses?

Good News. Bad News.

The bad news is time flies. The good news is you’re the pilot. – Michael Altshuler

Actually, there is no bad news.

You’re in charge.

You always have been, just sometimes you haven’t been at your best.

But you can do better.

You can always do better.

You can create a flight plan for your life and head towards your destination.

Now.

Go ahead.

You can start flying any time you want.

Just decide to, and do so.

Always Move Towards

Turn your face to the sun and the shadows fall behind you. – Maori proverb

Do you, typically, move away from what you don’t want, or towards what you do?

The latter is always preferable.

I know there are times when moving away is necessary.

Just make sure as you’re backing away you turn around and head towards what you want.

How To Create A Life That Loves You

I have found that if you love life, life will love you back. – Arthur Rubinstein

But you must go first.

An amazing life will not come find you.

It won’t yank you off the couch and give you the interest, skills and energy to do great, fun, amazing, important things.

It will meet you while you’re busy, when you’re having fun, when you’re really alive.

It will catch you in the middle of doing stuff that matters.

It love you once you love you and what you’re doing.

Who Is Responsible?

I believe that we are solely responsible for our choices, and we have to accept the consequences of every deed, word, and thought throughout our lifetime. – Elisabeth Kübler-Ross

For so many of us, this concept is foreign.

What’s more, for those folks to be confronted with this truth, great upset would likely ensue.

But the powerful human, the strong human, the aware human, it’s a wonderfully empowering sentiment.

*  *  *

By taking responsibility for our choices, our deeds, words and thoughts, we create power in our lives.

We don’t blame, or beat ourselves up, we powerfully acknowledge the power we actually have.

The amazing thing about taking responsibility is that by doing so we become creators.

Creators of our experience and our results.

To reject the truth and power of responsibility, whether by default or design, is resign one’s self to victim-hood.

Choose to be a Creator.

Choose Responsibility.
