Treasure Your Preferences

After following through with someone else’s plan for my life, I have finally discovered the amazing benefits of doing what I love to do.

First of all, it was a challenge of self-doubt even to explore the idea of what I love to do.

I kept listening to the direction that came to me, though, and now have put together a combination of all my favorite things.

It feels completely different to be happy all the time about what I do.

I love every part of it.

I get to play with wonderful materials.

I get to meet with the people who enjoy the same kinds of activities I like to do.

I get to be a natural introvert and only share when I feel like it.

I get to play with designs and go to visit the print shop and see them work their magic on my originals.

It is fun to share the different steps with the people who are helping me bring about my products.

Trusting my preferences is leading to a delightful life and one that I can continue to build on with happiness and satisfaction.

Near and Far

How do the things I do today build what I want for the future?

What are the qualities in my life which will let me develop and take my ideas forward?

I appreciated learning about this in a book written for high schoolers by Napoleon Hill, called “The Law of Success in Sixteen Lessons”.

Since it is in the same style as his more famous book “Think and Grow Rich”, it conveys great respect for the abilities of young people to achieve.

The good work habits and rigorous thinking applied to daily life and responsible relationships in both personal and business life require consistency and discipline.

There is no substitute for integrity.

There is no fast track.

This is not a quick read.

Steady application of the principles creates a strong foundation for success.

Rereading the book shows how deeply the ideas have penetrated and leaves room for more study and application.

Choosing Peace and Balance

Finding your place in the world based on doing what you love creates more peace in the world.

Your own mind is not agitated.

You see where you fit into society and you like it.

It is comfortable, satisfying and productive for you.

People love to come to you for what you do.

Your contribution to your community through this feeling of peace and being valued is vital and important.

Others want to feel this way, too.

As you demonstrate your harmony and peace through committing yourself to what you love to do, you create more balance in society.

As you draw in more people to this idea and help create the conditions for more self-fulfillment, more productivity and satisfaction, you eliminate worry, concern and agitation.

A deep sense of peace within the community is created.

People can celebrate one another and support their businesses.

Students can aspire to fulfilling life-work.

Life based on fulfillment and happiness in personal expression is non-competitive.

It is cooperative as businesses compliment each other and expand the services which are available.

A community with peace and balance creates different kind of mindset which benefits everyone.

Valuing Your Own Path

Feeling your own value comes through the ideas which you love.

Your ideas create the most value.

They fulfill your dreams.

They challenge you to accomplish them.

The guide, direct and comfort you as you take each step.

Your path will develop in its own way.

Listen to how it feels.

There is always an element of happiness, excitement, delight, commitment.

The deepest satisfaction comes from valuing your own ideas.

Your path has a distinct and definite feel to it.

Your best contribution comes through the ideas which come to you.

They are the ones best suited to you.

When you accept them, you move toward a new phase in your mind.

It opens up a different kind of world to you.

You create a world where you love what you do.

It attracts wonderful elements to you which are fun to share.

You have a conscious sense of your own value which is apparent to those around you.

Respect Your Inner Drive

Start your self-respect early.

Believe in your intuition.

There is a different way of going through the world than the dominant one presented to us.

The one that feels good to your inner sense is the best way for you.

Following your inner drive, you will feel gently guided and led to all the right connections.

You will have time to develop your skill.

You will embrace all the things you need to be successful.

A great work environment, wonderful colleagues and clients, ready access to materials.

And most of all, deep satisfaction in your worthwhile work.

Attracting Flow and Balance

What is most useful to you is discovering what you love and moving to create your life out of those elements.

What you love defines you.

It is the identity you carry with you in life, in thought, in everything you do.

Your identity supports who you are.

It is the most direct line to what you want to achieve with guidance from within.

It is the way you will make the most effective contribution to society and civilization.

The harmony in your life and in your surroundings will generate more for the world than anything else you do.

Creating and living from the sense of perfect balance and flow energizes in a powerful way, i.e. no loss.

It connects you with the best resources, the best way of doing what you love.

Listening to the senses within to guide you in making decisions, big and small, gives you a more direct way to your goal.

You keep your balance and allow the flow of ideas essential to your progress, your project.

Trust the feeling of what you love.

Let it establish the flow and balance of your life.

How To Think For Yourself

Listen within.  Feel your intuition.  Be yourself.  Note the difference.

Instead of being swept along by what is in the public eye, you have the right to discover an entirely different life.

Your goals are the ones that mean something to you.

You may have carried a goal all your life that you can finally address.

You may just now discover a new possibility for yourself.

You are the one who knows what fits.

It is fine to try out different goals and to work the jobs that are available and to gain experiences.

But keep listening for what you love and for what you value most.

Let that grow in thought and let it lead you to a different destination by a different way.

Surely, this is why you are here.

To experience and find out new things and to discover what you love.

Surely this is the goal with the most satisfaction for you.

Surely, this will put you in contact with people of like-mind who have the same values of loving what they do.

Surely, this is the best way to build community.

Surely, this is the best way to find fulfillment.
