Goals Hmmmm?

Hello Everybody! I stayed up almost all night! My mind simply would not let me go to sleep! Every time I tried something would pop up! LOL! Needless to say I’m just waking up from going to bed at 8 o’clock this morning. I heard Les Brown mention that, “Most people fail in life not because they aim too high and miss. Most people fail in life because they aim to low and hit.” This send chills through my body. I thought about all the times when I was young I always said to myself; “If I could just get a good job”. “I can’t wait to be a teacher. That’s a good job” Now my dream came true, so now what? I do love teaching but still feel as if there has to be more. So I started writing and publishing my children’s book which I love because I’m teaching just in form of a story. I want to be like Dr. Seuss. Almost every school-aged child has read one or more of his books! Which is how I want Demby’s Playful Parables to be. I love getting stories from students and or their parents that say, “I am doing better in school since I learned to Stop, Think and Breathe and Make the Right Choice” I love to hear children singing it all that time and using it on each other as well as their parents and / or teachers. LOL!! My Students use it on me all the time! Only recently I started to think that maybe I could make a full time career out of selling my stories. I’m sitting here reading the success story of an online entrepreneur and he talked about making ten million dollars a year but being bored with that and feeling lost because that was his goal in life. He didn’t really know what to do. So like Louise Hay says, “The point of power is always in the present moment” He set his  goal to $100 million. I’m sure he’ll reach that too and have to set a new goal! The point is when we are young everybody tells us to set goals, but they never tell us that it is our mind that puts on the limits.  Now granted we should be sober in our thinking. I don’t we can grow wings and fly like a bird just by thinking about it but we determine how our life will be and how far our passion will take us.

As I was reading the story from the online entrepreneur, I was thinking to myself. “Naw I don’t need 10 million that’s too much. All I need is a million that would be enough for me.” There I was reading about someone went far beyond his goal in life and I’m limiting my own self. I’m aiming too low and I’ll hit. Then what? There already enough naysayers around, I most certainly don’t need to be one. My prayer today is Lord take away these self limiting beliefs and create in me a clean heart that is open to the Totality of Possibility (also came from Louise Hay. . . . I love that lady)

Dream Big! there’s no sense in dreaming small. I see myself living in abundance doing what I love to do.  Bob Proctor says, ” I am so happy and grateful now that money comes to me in increasing quantities through multiple sources on a continuous basis!”  The Bible says

John 10:10 King James Version (KJV)

10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.  That means everything to me. Because my fear of riches stems from being like Ebenezer Scrooge, rich and lonely.   That’s not wealth at all. Abundant Life is having wealth in money and in life! I’m setting my goals high!
