Sooner or later life will push you out of your comfort zone and force you into change. We often sacrifice our joy for comfort and forfeit our dreams. Our potential will not be realized by complaints about where we are, who we’re with or what we’re doing. It’s only by choice that we can truly be on a path to happiness.
I’m listening to Raindrops of Love For a Thirsty World – 9/22/2017 on Being Talk Radio Network with TuneIn. #NowPlaying http://tun.in/th8rBa
In order to find a solution we must first understand the problem. Yesterday my wife and I decided to start shopping for a new living room set. We’ve always loved our current sofa, chairs and ottoman. The dimensions are perfect and the leather finish is attractive and durable. The problem was the seat foam. Over the years it had compacted in our favorite relaxation spots. There seemed to be no way to replace the foam. Since we were about to toss them anyway I decided to make a slight incision in the mesh covering beneath each unit.
As I explored the underside I discovered the foam was supported by a series of straps. To compensate for the compacted foam I inserted some spare bed pillows in between the straps and existing foam. A perfect fix that cost me nothing but some spare time. Now my living room furniture is as good as new.
Life also has its simple little fixes. Sometimes it’s a decision to simply move through fear and try something new. Other times we must recognize the problem, understand it and compensate accordingly. The solution to our biggest problem could be a single decision away.
I’m sure we’ve all done it. You know, covered our tracks in regards to a perceived failure or inability to conquer a fear. Most recently I discovered a client who is partners with a family member doing just that. He’d been telling a story and has now adopted it as truth. Years ago he had a business in terrible trouble. He faced a total collapse of all that he valued as his lack of business experience put him in a compromising position with the IRS. He made it through the process with the help of a tax attorney but afterwards he couldn’t seem to get back in the game. Soon an opportunity arose to invest in his relative’s business. It wasn’t intended to be a partnership. Yet, somehow he interpreted it as that. He began to say he gave up his business in favor of helping with his relative’s business. This was not the case. He stepped into the business because he wasn’t ready to continue with his. The wounds were too fresh and he needed time to heal. The danger was he’d been telling his story so often that he came to believe it. This was his more palatable truth. He wasn’t saved. He was the savior. Well, at least in his mind. The thing is he hates that business and often states he’s only there for his family member. The discontent in his situation is very disheartening. It is also affecting the business in a negative way. His heart is not in it. If your heart ain’t in it you’ll never win it. Unhappiness is a tell tale sign that something isn’t right. Uncover the truth and forgive yourself while moving forward accepting responsibility for the past and forgiving yourself today. It’s time to stop building on the sand.
The mind wants to protect us from danger and failure through fear. There is a very limited time that we have to initiate an idea that may challenge us. I met a man named Dante today who shared in interesting story. When he first began dating he’d hold his breath as long as he could before talking to a girl he had an interest in. This was his countdown. Once he took that first breath the conversation just flowed. Today I met Dante, Marina and Nanita all because I decided to count down and conquer. I’d been procrastinating about driving for Uber since initially downloading the app months ago. I just couldn’t bring myself to try. There was always some excuse I’d make. Many of which were out of fear. It wasn’t until I realized it was time to count down from five and just do it. I got online with Uber and within a minute I received my first request. 5 4 3 2 1 and I was out the door and on my way. Remember, we have five seconds to make a decision that could add so much to the life we love. Don’t give your mind the time to count you out. You can count up to infinity or just count down and act now. 5 4 3 2 1 😁

“Ron Ash brought me on board to do a weekly love and self-empowerment advice segment for his popular radio show based in Rhode Island and broadcast worldwide. I have given advice on networks from the BBC to MTV and found Ron by comparison to be an incredibly giving, organized and hard-working Program Director and Executive Producer. In other words, Ron was as great as anyone I’ve worked with at any other network. It was such a pleasure to work with him!
As an on-air coach, co-host and advice giver, you seek partnership with the shows producer and host. Ron wore many hats in this capacity and never once appeared to be anything less than supportive and in control in the most positive of ways.

In life we have had many influences which have molded are beliefs in who we are and in what we can or cannot become. In truth there are no limits other than those we impose upon ourselves. We can move away from these preconceived notions of our Being in this very moment if we so chose. All we need to do is open our mind, heart and spirit and begin to move forward confidently towards the answers we seek.
In the beginning there existed one Power one Source one Creator of all things which many of us ever so lovingly refer to as God. Understanding this Source of All and One is the key to becoming all that we are created to be. You see, we were created by and in the image of a perfect Creator and as such have always been as Perfect as I Am. Perfection is not capable of imperfection. It is only our belief that we are less than God that creates the experience of imperfection.
Our experiences are only a reality for us. Well, this is at least true on a spiritual level. It can be true on a physical level in regards to how we look back at the event, but in truth physical trauma is a reality for the one who has experienced it. It is a reality that can contribute to our experience in this lifetime as well as the lifetimes to come unless we take the necessary steps to remove it.
Let’s get back to the spiritual experience which is creating constantly via our thoughts, feelings and emotions. These experiences begin as beliefs. As Henry Ford proclaimed, “Whether you think that you can, or that you can’t, you are usually right.” If you believe you can’t you will most likely never try. Why would you? In that case you would only be wasting your time and maybe even your money. Think back to anything you have ever accomplished in your lifetime. Really, anything you would like. We have all accomplished so much in our lives. Even the thought of getting that morning cup of coffee evokes the principle of thoughts creating an experience. We wake up think about how great a hot and tasty cup of java will be and that prompts us to take the necessary steps to hold that cup of coffee in our hands. We actually are seeing and experiencing how nice it will be for us. Now what do you want right Now? Whatever it is as we believe we will have it we eventually will.
There are many beliefs that we have held dear for many years. We are creatures of creation that attach ourselves to outcome. We have an idea of what we want and what it will take to get there. We think we know if we can or can’t do it. Most often we feel in our heart the pains associated with failure that correspond directly to these feelings and emotions. This is what creates our experience. Every word and statement that we accept externally from others or internally from ourselves will continually contribute to our beliefs if we allow them to.
Ask yourself what you believe and if it does not line up with what you believe for it is time to evaluate and change those beliefs. We can’t believe we can and we can’t at the same time. The power is in us to be the perfection we are or the imperfection we only think we are. Remember, the original sin was not the wanting to be as powerful as God but believing we were imperfect and less capable than God.
