In Everything Give Thanks

 “Gratitude Is The Fairest Blossom That Springs From The Soul”*

When you’re content with what you have, you usher in a deep state of mind that is spiritual in nature – gratitude. And gratitude is bliss.

By consciously developing a sense of gratitude in all things, you exalt the Divine Mind. This is the master key that unlocks the treasure chest and beauty of God.

Like all other states of mind, gratitude can ripen into habit. By giving thanks every day, you taste deeply from the fruits of gratitude. Then those fruits send forth a bountiful harvest.

“The Mighty Oak Sleeps In the Acorn”*

The term self-made might lead you to believe that it is a truism, yet nobody reaches the top of success mountain without many helping hands up along the way.

In  21 Success Secrets Of Self-Made Millionaires {<Free Copy} by Brian Tracy, number 17 is “Get Around The Right People” for a reason.

When you set a goal, and take the initial steps, you’ll soon be getting help along the way from unexpected people.

You also get lots of help from your own subconscious mind, and the quantum field of energy that I call God.

So, don’t just give thanks for the human help, but also for the Divine help that you receive.

“‘Thank You’ Is The Best Prayer That Anyone Could Say”*

The key to getting what you pray for is to be grateful for it as though you’ve already received it. Because the emotion of gratitude emits magnetic vibrations into the universe that attract even more to be grateful for.

By focusing your mind on something specific through the fine art of prayer, you usually get what you ask for, or something even better.

“Gratitude Is The Sign Of Noble Souls”*

Gratitude is also a matter of perspective. By comparing disagreeable circumstances or events to what they might have been, you’ll often find that things could have been worse.

Look around the world, and you’ll find much to be grateful for. Do you have good food and potable water to drink? Can you walk, talk, see, and hear? Are you free to pursue your dreams? Most of all, if you’re alive and in reasonable health, then you’ve got it made.

A close friend of mine was afflicted with a health concern since birth, but it only strengthened this powerhouse of a lady to develop her natural gifts. Gifts that might have otherwise laid dormant.

An insightful poet and talented writer, she also became a superstar mother. Then her daughter in turn became one of the most talented artists around.

The lesson is, no matter how bad you think you have it, there’s always somebody else who has it worse. And winner’s like my friend always find a way to turn it around and give it positive meaning.

“The Essence Of All Beautiful Art, All Great Art, Is Gratitude”*

Find new creative ways to express your gratitude. Not only for material gifts, but for those who give to you of their time and effort – which is far more valuable.

Find unique ways of expressing your gratitude like mailing a handwritten letter. Then your gift of thanks will be infectious – it will effect that persons mood, which in turn will effect others.

Don’t forget to express your appreciation to those who are closest to you. It’s one of the strangest quirks about humans, but we all tend to take family and people that we see regularly for granted.

But, the truth is that one day they’ll be gone. Don’t let the regret live on after they’re gone in the form of – I wish I had told them how I felt, and how grateful I was…

“When The Night Is Darkest, The Stars Come Out”*

Gratitude comes to life when it is spoken aloud. Has a parent, friend, or spouse ever supported you by believing in you?

For myself, that special lady that I mentioned, was always there for me when I went through a living nightmare. Her faith in me, forever changed me, and I’ll always be extremely grateful and love her for it.

Remember, focus your mind on what you don’t have, and you get more of it. Focus on what you do have, and be grateful for it, and you’ll get more of that too.

The choice is obvious. Since the power of our thoughts affect our destiny, doing our best to choose positive thoughts instead of negative ones – is the wisest choice.

And since the best things in life are free, be grateful for them. Then you’ll soon discover that although gratitude costs nothing, it’s a huge investment in the future that will pay off many fold.

Thanks for your time and consideration, – Herb.

The Trick To Patience

“Patience Is Bitter, But It’s Fruit Is Sweet”*

Everyone nowadays seems to be in a hurry. This age of computers has spoiled us because when we want something, we want it now. But it is through patience that the war is won, the skills are mastered, and our dreams come true.

Taking immediate action can be a powerful force indeed, but when you don’t think something through, it often leaves you with regrets, and gives an advantage to those who do their due diligence.

He That Can Have Patience, Can Have What He Will”*

In business, we want the contracts signed, the deals closed, and the work done now. The faster, the better.

In the investment world, time and time again, the markets have crashed under the weight of the herd mentality. Panicked, the masses sell their stocks or cryptos at a loss. But those with a long term mentality ride through the storm on the road to wealth.

Patience demands a certain type of courage. Its strength lies in the perseverance that comes with dedication to an ideal or goal.

“The Two Most Powerful Warriors Are Patience And Time”*

The trick to patience lies in taking certain actions, rather than passively killing time. To truly master patience, you must do something else that’s positive while you’re waiting for time to pass.

In other words, while you’re waiting for a resolution that needs time to unfold, work on improving in another area of your life.

It’s power is twofold. First of all, you take your mind off of what you’re waiting for. And second, you improve in other ways instead of just killing time worrying.

Fixate upon some worthy goals. Read some self-help books. Exercise and eat healthy. All of these are wise use of your energy while you’re waiting for whatever you’re trying to be patient about to resolve.

“How People Treat You Is Their Karma; How You React Is Yours”*

Ironically, this is also the best way to get vengeance, and deal with ignorant and frustrating people. Sometimes, we can’t just cut people or relatives out of our lives, so we must have faith that their time will come.

The law of cause and effect will get them, and until it does, we can rise above them by improving ourselves. Knowing where you’re going in life greatly increases your tolerance level towards the annoying people and setbacks that stand between you and your goals.

Just know that you are going to win the war eventually, even though others may win a battle or two along the way.

Remain positive as best you can, and the losers will fall by the way side long before your determination ever does.

Rise Above The Storm

Get in tune with Infinite Intelligence through The Power Of Your Subconscious Mind{<Free Copy} by Joseph Murphy, and a solution to your problems will come to you out of the blue.

Meditate and pray for help and guidance. Then peace, tranquility, and patience will be yours. Time will ease your pain while you wait for what took Edison over ten thousand attempts to harness, then …the light will come on.

Quotes – *Jean-Jacques Rousseau,*Benjamin Franklin*Leo Tolstoy, *Wayne Dyer

All the best, – Herb.






How To Get Revenge

“Living Well Is The Best Revenge”*

It’s an internal truth that by rising above those who’ve done you wrong, you become better than them, and you turn the pain around by becoming better than you were.

We all have to deal with ignorant, rude, and mean people. They can be hard to figure out, but one core trait that they all have is that they enjoy getting a reaction.

“Misery Loves Company”*

When someone provokes you by saying or doing hurtful things, they do it to get a reaction because they’re miserable inside, and they want others to be miserable too. But when you don’t react, you win and they lose.

When someone steals from, or hurts you or someone you love, that goes way beyond simple provocation, yet either way, by keeping cool and level headed even though you’d love to give them what they deserve, you join forces with the Gods.

Besides, if you beat someone up, you run the risk that they’ll seek revenge back upon you. And there’s plenty of psychos out there who are just waiting to snap.

You always have the option of killing them, but while they rest in peace , you worry about getting caught, or you rot away in prison – or both.

“How People Treat You Is Their Karma; How You React Is Yours”*

The laws of cause and effect, sowing and reaping, and karma can also be called the law of the boomerang because what you give eventually comes back to you in one form or another.

I understand dreams of vengeance. Tossing and turning at night. Making mistakes at work because you’re unable to concentrate.

I’d lie in bed thinking about how much this person deserved my wrath, and I’d envision what I might do if I could get away with it.

It affected my moods, level of happiness, and my health. I became irritable and angry which then affected my other relationships.

“On Wrongs Swift Vengeance Waits’*

Fortunately, it got so bad that I decided to study patience, how to deal with lunatics, and how to get vengeance without going to prison. Then I mixed it all with my insights from self-help books.

I meditated on it until it clicked inside, like entering the numbers to the combination of a safe. Yet, what I found in the vault of my mind was more valuable than money – it was peace of mind.

Don’t try to figure people out and try to change them, just accept them as they are. Then thank God that you’re not like them.

Rise above them by not lowering your standards to their level. Chase thoughts of them out of your mind because they’re not worthy of your time and thought energy.

“If You Can’t Change Something, Then Change How You Feel About It”*

When someone provokes you, they want you to react, so by yelling, swearing, or hitting them – they win and you lose.

By reacting, even if they deserve it, you may feel better in the short term, but you’ve actually made things worse for yourself.

Instead take a deep breath, bite your tongue, and just walk away. Then you not only win the battle, but eventually you’ll win the war.

Gun-toting Americans and Hollywood encourage “Payback“, and burning down houses, blowing up cars, and beating people to death might make a great movie, but it will land you in prison or in a coffin.

Remember that if someone is rude and mean it’s because they’re miserable inside. And in their instability they show a lack of self-control and discipline.

Therefore, they probably don’t eat healthfully and exercise regularly. So, get to work on you, and live a long healthy life, while they suffer illness, pain, and an early death.

Chances are that they’ll waste their life away lying on the couch watching TV. but, you’re reading self-help books, achieving goals, and making your dreams come true.

In essence, rise above those who deserve your vengeance, and you’ll become stronger, wiser, healthier, and better than they ever will be.

Then in the fullness of time, you’ll not only win the war, but the game of life.

All the best – Herb.
