Your thoughts become you.


Look around you. Go on… look up from your screen right now and take a look around you. Everything you see – everything in this physical world – got its start with a thought.

12 Steps to Create a Life You’ll Love to Live. Step 7.


Can you remember a time in your life when things felt really overwhelming? What got you through it? Did you work your way through it? Or did something appear out of the blue when you finally let go? My personal experience is that this magic occurs on the other side of my habitual should: “If I only work harder, I can make this happen.” When I have exhausted myself doing more and more of what I know, I remember, “Oh yeah, I just have to let go; all this fighting will never...
