Compliments are gifts of prosperity. Learn to accept them graciously. -Louise Hay
“So many people want to be rich, and yet they won’t accept a compliment,” explained Louise Hay in her best-selling book, You Can Heal Your Life.
“My mother taught me early to smile and say, “Thank you” when I received a compliment or gift. This advice has been an asset all my life.” Louise Hay was an internationally known author, lecturer and leader in the personal growth field.
Soon, it will be the half-way point in 2023. As you look ahead, I encourage you to accept compliments graciously and give them generously.
Sometimes you can feel tired from challenges coming your way. But when you look into your heart and approach life from a place of love, your perspective changes.
Remind yourself to chose love and “always one more time."
“We are all the same in this notion,” continues Wilma Rudolph. “The potential for greatness lives within each of us.” Wilma Rudolph was an American athlete and champion in the 1956 and 1960 Olympics.
This season, I encourage you to believe the power of your dreams!
"Why are we so divided?...What is the way out?" asks Gabrielle Bernstein, best-selling author of Spirit Junkie and The Universe Has Your Back. "Deep down we are all loving, kind and compassionate beings. Yet our actions, the way we think, the way we communicate, the way we relate to ourselves and each other often brings us the opposite experience." Gabrielle Bernstein released the video, Before you judge anyone, watch this on Facebook in January and it's been viewed almost 8 million times.
"The miracle is not only that we give up judgement, the miracle is that we no longer believe in it," she continues.
This week, I encourage you to give up judgement!
Enjoy a happy and productive week!
What proportion of your day are you smiling? The benefits of smiling are numerous. When you smile you elevate the moods of those around you. Mother Teresa also said, "Every time you smile at someone, it is an action of love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing." And, importantly, when you smile YOU feel better!
This week, I invite you to smile often.
Have a wonderful and productive week!
In order to strive for a remarkable life, you have to decide that you want one. -Debbie Millman
“But there hasn’t been one minute during this time that I haven’t wished I started sooner,” explained Debbie Millman, a design industry leader, in a 2013 commencement speech at San Jose University. “Imagine immensities. Don’t compromise and don’t waste time.” She encourages her audience to “Start now. Not twenty years from now. Not thirty years from now. Not two weeks from now. Now.”
Debbie Millman is also an author, educator, curator and host of the podcast Design Matters, one of the world’s first and longest running podcasts. Millman has interviewed nearly 500 artists, designers and cultural commentators over the past 14 years.
This week, I encourage you to consider, is it time to decide that you want a remarkable life?
Enjoy a happy and productive week!
What you put your attention on grows. -Louise Hay
"The more you dwell on what you don't want, the more of it you create," explained Louise Hay. Louise Hay wrote the best-selling book, You Can Heal Your Life, and founded Hay House, Inc. She has influenced millions of people to discover and use their full potential.
"What you put your attention on grows and becomes permanent in your life," wrote Louise Hay. "Move away from the negative, and put your attention on what it is that you really do want to be or have."
This summer, I encourage you to turn your negative affirmations into your positive affirmations!
To your success!
