Let Your Soul Shine

“When You Can’t Find The Light, That Got You Through A Cloudy Day”*

Throughout my life there has often been an ongoing struggle between my intentions, goals, hopes, and dreams, and my fears, doubts, and negative thoughts.

I didn’t just study self-help books because the black clouds were rollin’ in, I studied them because I knew that there had to be more to my life – a purpose for the insanity of it all.

Along the way I not only discovered the universal laws of mind, but also the various states and attitudes of mind that when consciously directed and harnessed rocked my world.

“When The Stars Ain’t Shinin’ Bright, You Feel Like You Lost Your Way”*

It’s true that all of my greatest accomplishments took imagination, desire, and disciplined action, but after a great idea was sent to me out of the ether, my spirit needed to be inspired by the gods with enthusiasm.

By tapping into this source of power at will, you become like a magnet that radiates attractive forces in all directions, and you influence those who enter into your force field of energy.

This power comes from deep within, from inside your soul. I’ve written much about a positive mental attitude, and second only to gratitude, the best way to get a PMA is through the power of enthusiasm.

“When Those Candle Lights Of Home, Burn So Very Far Away”*

No one has ever attained success without it, and no one ever will because there’s no internal power that compares to the right sort of enthusiasm in making your dreams come true.

Few people realize its value, but those who do, use it as an impetus to accomplish great things. Everyone has it potentially, yet most don’t stoke their desires intensely enough by believing in themselves.

Enthusiasm breeds optimism which in turn builds confidence, faith, determination, and perseverance. It’s also contagious because an enthusiastic person vibrates with an aura of success.

“Hey Now People Don’t Mind, We All Feel This Way Sometime”*

Without enthusiasm your efforts can often be wasted and your results impaired. The trick to mastering it is to develop your standards such that you always do your best.

If you do your best, even if things don’t turn out as you hoped, you were still victorious by reaching the finish line. And along the way, you became so much more than you were before, so you truly did succeed because you now have what it takes inside for the next time.

Whereas conversely, when you quit or never even get started, that nagging feeling of what could have been will always haunt you for the rest of your days subconsciously.

“You Gotta Let Your Soul Shine… Shine ‘Til The Break Of Day”*

Fix your mind upon the goal, and shake off those doubts, fears, and negative thoughts that always seem to rear their ugly heads. Chase them away when you hear them calling, and soon it will become a habit.

Remember that true heroism is enduring for one more moment in the face of adversity. And it’s in that moment that the winners and losers are separated.

“And When Your World Seems Cold, You Got To Let Your Spirit Take Control”*

No one is dead as long as their heart beats, and no one has lost the struggle within as long as they have some fight left in them. And more often than not it’s just one more moment when the enemies of doubt, fear, and negativity release their hold and drop back beaten.

And that my friends, is one of life’s greatest treasures – to taste deeply from the fruits of your labors for having done your best. For that’s when your soul shines its brightest for all the world to see.

“You Gotta Let Your Soul Shine… Shine ‘Til The Break Of Day”*
