Sometimes,  with the inspiration and excitement of an idea, it is hard to feel patient to allow the development of the idea to take place.

The idea feels so wonderful and we want to see it right away!

Actually, the idea is the promise.

It is emerging in thought.

As you nurture it and enjoy it, it will attract the resources and connections to appear.

This is the time to cultivate a listening attitude every time you think about how wonderful the idea is.

As yo go about you daily life, you mind is working on the connections.

The events of your life, past and present, are bringing the elements together to create and form the idea.

You will find yourself glancing through a catalog and finding the perfect element to include in your idea.

You will find yourself, driving through a neighborhood and seeing a wonderful arrangement in someone’s yard, which gives you added inspiration for your idea.

You will be having lunch and reading a book and another element will present itself.

All these elements are coming together as you go about your day, and they are combining.

They will present the perfect balance in your idea’s presentation, marketing, connection with customers and clients.

Best of all, you will enjoy the whole process.

Be happy, and be patient.

It is all coming together.

Start Giving

Do not wait until you fulfill some kind of circumstance, but start giving right away.

You have an innate sense of what your gifts are because you are drawn to certain things.

You give from your deepest sense of who you are.

Throughout your life, you will gain a deeper sense of your identity and how to give.

You always give from your heart’s overflow.

You give when you are moved to do so.

You give because you come from an Infinite Source.

Your giving uplifts and comforts and informs.

You present a different and higher view when you give.

You always give generously.

Your unique vision helps you identity a need which you can support with your gifts.

Your particular point of view allows you to create solutions to the problems you see.

You are always in touch with your Source whenever you listen within, so it is easy to identify where you can give.

Nothing can prevent you from sharing your gifts and giving widely.

You have a natural attraction to the people and places who will receive your gifts most gladly.

You are supported by your ability to give and your natural desire to share your gifts.

Stick To Your Ideals

Your ideals will take you much farther than anything else.

As you develop them, they expand.

Your ideals work through your mental and emotional channels, so therefore they have a much farther outreach than all other resources.

Follow them.

Listen to them.

Take the first tiny steps which come to you.

Let those tiny steps accumulate into more and more steps.

Your goal will redefine and expand each time you listen to your ideals.

There are no limits on the power of ideals and the resources they attract.

Be sure of your desire to uplift, comfort and to provide assurance.

Selfishness turns inward, and generosity blesses everyone it touches.

Your generosity comes from the ideas which help you uplift others.

You create room to receive when you listen inwardly for direction.

As yo provide room for others to receive, you receive also.

Your giving heart does not leave you empty.

The expansion of ideals lifts, comforts, provides, communicates, supplies, and enhances every part of life.

How Your Life Develops

 The world throws random experiences at you.

Some are in line with your heritage, some with your surroundings, some with your companionship.

Their common element is that they all come into your life.

What you do with each of them is entirely up to you.

You can appreciate them or fear them.

You can accept them or resent them.

You can justify them or disrespect them.

How you respond is the one factor which will shape them.

Your reaction alone will cause them to continue to interact in random ways.

But your considered thought about them and your choices in how to direct and redirect them will create an intentional life.

Amazing to think that despite the government you grew up with, the neighborhood, the education, the parenting, that all this is simply background.

You can redraw, reshape, give emphasis and texture to any portion that you like.

Your imagination and skill will create different scenarios.

Even the emotional factors can come under your control with the appropriate tools.

So, watch and listen.

Consider, and then create.

Outside Expectations

Right here, right now, you are meeting some kind of expectations.

Some of them may be yours, but a lot of them are not.

All the factors which have gone into how you were raised, your gender, the culture around you and many more, are contributing to what is expected of you.

However, the most important part of that is what you expect and accept about yourself.

As your life takes its shape, it may appear to be going along all right.

Or it may appear to have too many obstacles to survive.

At some point, whether it is good or bad, you may be prompted to think about your life in a different way.

You may wonder how you got to this point.

You may decide it is not fair.

You may decide, even if it is good, you would like it to be more generous.

There are many directions your thought about your life may take.

The important thing is that you are now thinking about your life.

As you consider it, you may begin to seek out some ways in which you could change it.

This is when you could move from outside expectations to the ones coming from within you.

Think about your life.

Ponder it.

And then, go within, and find out what you are really here for.

The Most Wonderful Thing

What would you be doing if you could choose the most wonderful thing that you enjoy doing?

What would you create?

How would you engage your mind?

What is in your imagination?

What are the tools that you need?

What is the first tiny step you can take?

Let these questions be the ones you answer every day to create the life you would most enjoy.

Let your heart’s desire guide you.

It is there for a reason.

You exist in the form you do with the ideas you have to express an absolutely unique identity.

This is your vital contribution to society.

You need only take the steps to create your original ideas to bring all the goodness you could ever dream of into your life.

The challenges you face will build your strength, conviction, confidence, and skills.

You will become more than you ever thought you could.

You will be challenged to grow more powerfully than you could ever imagine.

You will live in a different kind of world, the one created by your strength, your individuality, and your capacity to share your powerful and uplifting ideas.

Guard Your Decency

It is important to treat others with decency.

Respecting where others are coming from and their points of view makes conversation possible.

Creating room for lots of good ideas to surface gives you more to work with on a project.

Combining ideas can often create a more effective solution.

It all begins with a practice of respect and decency.

Do not be influenced by an appeal to low emotions when dealing with anyone.

Do not be led to think there are better and worse people.

Guard your decency by treating everyone with the respect you desire.

Your attitude will uplift everyone around you and will attract really strong and positive people onto your team.

When people know that they can safely express their ideas, it makes innovation easier.

It moves society forward as well.

You will be surprised to find yourself in a far more effective place when you guard your decency and practice it consistently.
