As you’re meandering along the beach with the seagulls making a distinct sound in your ears, you notice this bottle half stuck in the sand at the waters edge. You can hardly contain your excitement as, with hands starting to tremble, you gingerly unroll the paper you extracted from the bottle. Only to find with glee that it is not one, but several pages rolled into the bottle! Then your hands start to tremble. Your heart begins to do a loud boom boom in your ears. The message, the story you are reading – it is about…..
Please let your light shine and believe that YOU are destined for greater things, as too the people’s lives you continue to touch.
I was watching a video by Mary Morrissey in the new iLearningGlobal website today, and I’d like to share it with you. It was all about directing power to create dispelling doubt. When doubt creeps in, it can change the whole outcome of your entire life. Whether it’s doubt for something personal happening in your life… doubt for something you want to do with your business (or doubt that sees you not even getting off the starting block)… doubt for something in your relationships… and so on. By entertaining the doubt, you are altering your decisions and outcomes; the entire vibration of your mind, which gives rise to ideas that make available the answers for you. This therefore can change the whole outcome of your entire life. Can you recall a time when you initially listened closely and deeply to something that ‘felt right’ and, after making a decision to go forward with it, some doubt crept in that prevented you from taking action – from following through on your decision? Maybe it was your own saboteur, maybe it was worry about “how” it would all come to fruition, maybe it was something negative you read in the newspaper, or maybe it was a lack of support or doubt by people close to you in your life. The thing is, when you listen to that doubt and let that doubt rule your decisions (that you knew, instinctively, were right in the first place), you are altering the whole course of your life. You are holding yourself back from stepping out with passion and purpose to live your dreams! Don’t be concerned about needing to know the answers immediately, or worrying about how it will all come together. When you are in harmony with your vibrations, the “how” will present itself to you. “Stand guard at the portal of your own mind.” Emerson Visit Mary Morrissey’s website for a free dream-building kit: http://marymorrissey.com
I urge you to hold onto your goals and dreams, have faith in your abilities, and start running through those doors that represent each area of your life. Fling back the door, feel the adrenalin pumping through your veins, and excel in the fact that you took action to make your goals and dreams a reality.
Years ago, one of my suppliers was diagnosed with bowel cancer. As if that wasn’t enough, it was discovered he had a hole in his heart. Something needed to be done, urgently, or he was going to die. He couldn’t get enough oxygen; walking only five paces left him short of breath. Combined with his treatment for bowel cancer he was in a bad way. Shortly after his operation I sat at the foot of his bed, in awe of the miracle which had drastically changed his life. Very emotional he told me how the surgeon discovered it was worse than they thought – ultimately he required two plastic valves and one metal valve for his heart. With tears running down his cheeks he told me that the surgeon had held his heart in his hands and placed it onto his chest. And, chokingly, he said again “Held my heart in his hands”. I cried along with him. Truly, a miracle. With a sob and a smile, he went on to say that he thought only his wife ever held his heart. We marvelled at the magnificence of surgeons and their procedures and how, literally, they hold our hearts – our lives – in their hands. Later that day, I reflected on what he had said. And it got me thinking. You know, we’re all “heart doctors” in our own way. Every day we “touch” someone else’s heart through our kind words, our dreams, our hopes – just for being ourselves! And like a true doctor, your touch may enable someone to “live” again. I heard the following years ago: A young boy was walking along a beach strewn with hundreds of starfish. He came across an old man who was picking up one starfish at a time and tossing it back into the sea … but the boy could see that for every one he tossed back in, at least two more were being washed back onto the shore. Perplexed, he went up to the old man and said, “Old man! Why are you tossing those starfish back in? It makes no difference! Look how many come back in!” The old man turned to the boy. “Son,” he said, as he tossed a starfish back into the sea, “it sure made a difference to that one!” It’s all about making a difference.

Can you remember when, as a child, you would lie on the grass, stare up to the clouds and dream? What happened to your dreams from your youth? Did they slip away on the wind, forgotten? Some of us today think dreams are silly, that they won’t come true. Then others say that they don’t have a dream at all. However, most of the wonderful events in our lives, both past and present, have resulted out of dreams. “I have a dream!” Martin Luther King exclaimed. He went on to change a nation. Henry Ford dreamt that a motor car could be affordable for everyone. Thomas Edison dreamed of a light globe that could be operated by electricity. Before he succeeded he failed more than ten thousand times. The Wright brothers dreamt of a flying machine. The evidence is around us today. The secret to their success was BELIEF and PERSEVERANCE. Your dream may not be as big as that of Thomas Edison, the Wright brothers, or even a child’s. Nevertheless, what you have now is important to YOU and can be accomplished if you have the desire to do so. D on’t be afraid to commit to your dream. R ecord your dreams on paper. E njoy the small successes along the way. A motivating factor is picturing the dream in your mind. M ake sure everyone knows your dream – you’ll want to succeed! S ee things as a learning experience – never as a failure. Never be misled by another’s perception of your dreams. When Marconi was discovering how to transmit sound through the airwaves, friends took him to a psychopathic hospital to be examined! He didn’t let this distract him. He believed in what he was doing. What is your dream? Write it down and pin it where you can see it every day! If, the first time round, you don’t succeed, never think of it as a failure and stop. It is merely a stepping stone to success – a learning experience. There is a French Proverb: “It is by believing in roses that one brings them to bloom.” Prove to yourself that your rose can bloom too.
