Wow!! Only 7% of what we say is part of our communication. Non verbal communication is the majority of how we communicate. What are you saying with your body language?

True nobility is about being better than you use to be.

“Be faithful to that which exists nowhere else but in yourself.” -French Poet (Wayne Dyer carried this thought with him in his pocket)

We are often addicted to being “BUSY”–we may even put some of our worth in this. We “hideout” in being busy to avoid “FEELING” or dealing with what is really going on inside.

If you knew who walks beside you–on this path that YOU have chose, you could never experience fear or doubt again [taken from Wayne Dyer movie series]

“To worry is to pray from something you really don’t want.” -[Sharon Lechter podcast]

It is a matter of changing your focus to what you do want & to refocus your thought to get rid of the worry.

The word “VICE” is in the word “ADVICE”–it must be there for a reason. It often gives the person on the other end the feeling that you think they don’t know what they are doing. You try to fix and fix with the “ADVICE” since you think you have all the answers.

“Have faith that the world needs what you got.” -Danielle LaPorte

“Your word is your wand. The words you speak create your own destiny.” -Florence Shinn

Abundance is Everywhere!

From a podcast with Jen Louden and Koren M: Jen reminded the listeners that we are animals and there is a part of our brain that when it senses fear or anxiety it goes into the flight or fight mode. She also said–we are prey and we are prayers. It reminded me that no matter what stress or weakness, fear or anxiety comes, we don’t have to be prey, but that we can pray. I like that.

May the path that would serve us best be very CLEAR.

Interesting thought from Martha Beck–She heard a client say “deep rest” when they were expressing feelings of being “depressed” Martha say’s it is a sign of your body and soul that you need nourishment and a deeper level of a deeper rest.

Jonathan Fields ask, “Who can I help today?”  [he was a Lawyer & now Yogi]

Ask yourself, “How has your light been dimmed?” What events (stories) stick with you from your life that seem to dim your divine light? What do you feel in those situations? Why does it still come up for you?? What are your suppose to learn? Why are you immobilized, afraid, stopped, stuck?

“The nuns taught us that there are two ways through life, the one of nature, the other grace.” -Tree of Life

“Make your future dream a present fact by assuming the feeling of the wish fulfilled.” -Neville

“Free will is whether we choose to align with Gods will or not!!” -W Dyer

“No matter what obstacles life gives you. Know you are worthy of love and belonging. No matter what! Life gives us moments of imperfection. We just need to remember and know we are worthy of love and belonging.”  -Brene Brown

A beloved community–What would you bring to the earthly table? What would you bring to nourish the souls of those around you? What richness would be fulfilled? What would you give to enrich their lives?

The crown is in my heart, not on my head. -Shakespeare

“Invitation” vs “Obligation”–there is a different energy when people are there because they want to be.

Post-it commercial states that if you write something down you are 42% more likely to do it.

Hope you find something here to take with you during your day. Life is about getting better each day & when you place something [a quote, a thought, a meaning] within your heart you make it more valuable and more meaningful.

Have a beautiful day.  -H

Olympic Spirit

“Strength and Courage aren’t always measured in medals and victories. They are measured in the struggles they overcome. The strongest people aren’t always the people who win, but the people who don’t give up when they lose.”  -Ashley Hodgeson

A few more stories to inspire…

Uber-kind stranger helps dad see his son’s debut at the Games

One of sweetest stories so far is that of Ellis Hill, the father of shot putter Darren Hill, was not even going to go to the Olympics. Travelling for mega sporting events is expensive and Hill, who drives an Uber taxi in Philadelphia, was going to have to settle for watching his son on TV. But that all changed when he mentioned to one of his passengers that he wouldn’t be able to go. The Good Samaritan decided to crowd-fund to get him there.

“It was devastating to hear that,” said the passenger, Liz Willock, in an interview with People magazine. “Here’s this wonderful man, who has a close relationship with his son, and I know any parent would want to see their son or daughter compete at the Olympics, but it was very understandable how that could be out of reach.” [taken from Daily Maverick]

 

Yusra Mardini might be the only athlete in the world whose sport literally saved her life.

The Syrian refugee, who will compete for the newly created Refugee Olympic Team, was forced to flee her home country because of civil war. With her sister, she went from Lebanon to Turkey with plans to sneak into Greece via the Aegean Sea, according to Juliet Spies-Gans of the Huffington Post.

During the trip, her boat broke down and began to fill with water. Along with another refugee, Mardini and her sister jumped into the Aegean Sea and pushed the boat to land. A month later, Mardini and her sister went to Berlin.

Mardini has always been a talented swimmer, but circumstances in Syria made training difficult at times.

In Berlin, she was able to begin training with Wasserfreunde Spandau 04, a swimming club that is based near her refugee center, according to the official Olympics website. There, she would train in a pool that was built for the 1936 Olympic Games.

Mardini hopes she will inspire others, according to the Olympics website:

I think my target is to qualify for the Olympics and to be an inspiration for everyone.

I want everyone to stay strong for their goals in life, because if you have your goals in front of your eyes, you will do everything you can; and I think even if I fail I will try again. Maybe I will be sad, but I will not show it, and I will try again and again until I get it. I want to show everybody that it’s hard to arrive at your dreams, but it’s not impossible. You can do it; everyone can do it. If I can do it, any athlete can do it.

Well, I hope these stories inspire your day and your life. Don’t give up!
