“Life is about learning, and it’s also about teaching. It’s about discovering new things about the world, about other people, and even about yourself. It’s about what you’ve learned at the end of the day, in the most difficult of situations, and in the most trying of times. It’s about shining a light in the midst of darkness–making the best out of an unfortunate situation. Life is about our laughter, our accomplishments, our sunny days, our rainy days, our tears, our failures…our journey.”

~T.S. Wilkins~

Winners and Losers

 

You will only become a winner by doing what winners do. Losers do what losers do. They never seem to change. Nobody goes overnight from loser to winner. It’s not like suddenly winning the lottery. Winning in life is a growth experience.

Remember, by the inch it’s a cinch, by the yard it’s hard.

For you to be a consistent winner in life, the negatives must be removed. If any of the negative habits and attitudes of a loser persist in your life, isn’t now a good time to identify them and begin to work on improving? All you have to do is tackle the most difficult habit or task each day and work on it.

Do the difficult first and all else will be easy. 

What is the most difficult task you have before you today? Do it now—don’t wait! If you truly want to be a winner in life, you must act today. Remember, “today is the tomorrow you hoped for yesterday.” Now is the only time any action can take place. If you don’t begin now, you will never begin. Success on any level of being occurs through the hourglass effect—little by little, grain by grain, the habits of winning accumulate. Soon, your life will be filled with fulfillment and richness.

I wish you the very best in developing a winning personality. So, act now on the realization of your fondest dreams and hopes. Act today the way you’d feel having them already within your grasp. They are already there once you begin to act on them. Act today—do not delay. You’ll be forever glad you did!

Bless you in the sweet richness of life, -Peter Ragnar

Oh boy, it’s hard to let go! But having a death grip on life doesn’t work!

I have been called over controlling, over achieving, overbearing… You name it.  Excessive is my middle name. I’m either in or I’m out…up or down…yes.. It’s true… I HAVE CONTROL ISSUES!

I learned a long time ago that letting go can literally save your life. I had to do it while practicing stalls in an airplane alone as I saw the ground spinning towards me because I was trying to MAKE the airplane fly. The harder I fought the laws of nature the closer I came to crashing and burning.

It doesn’t take long to figure out that if you keep doing what you are doing you will keep getting what you are getting, but try remembering that in an airplane as you are about to dig a hole 20 feet into the ground.

Sometimes we have to do things that appear to be counter-intuitive.. just trust the laws of nature and LET GO. The truth is, we control nothing in life and that is precisely why we keep trying to MAKE it go the way we want it to go.

I lived to tell the tale of my terrifying lesson on letting go that day so long ago by taking my hands off the yoke and allowing the airplane to do what it was made to do FLY…and trust that aerodynamics wouldn’t decide to take the day off. That doesn’t mean that I don’t forget it every now and then, but I now have the ability stop, choose to correct early and remind myself that if I just let go…I can fly!

I have a hard time understanding why anyone would prefer to work as a team of one rather than lock arms and minds and be creative with others.

Firstly, it’s a lot more fun. Secondly, you don’t take 100% of the blame if things go south.

Seriously, I just find the creative process amazing. I don’t know if it’s because I lack confidence in my own choices sometimes or if I am smart enough to realize that maybe I just DON’T have all the answers.

For me, throwing out an idea and seeing where someone else’s imagination can go with it is a thrill. Their contribution inspires me to think in new directions and my contribution encourages them to do the same. What comes out of the mix is magic.

I have been called a control freak by many, but I learned from flying that if you are in an airplane and you are in a critical situation, a death grip on the yoke will lead to just that…crash and burn. We can over control. We can under control/contribute, as well. Each can lead to an unsatisfactory result.

So, take a look at how you operate in the world. Are you open to others? Are you willing to be wrong? To change? Will you acknowledge someone else’s ideas and share the wealth? Weren’t we always better when we played well with others? We may be all grown up, but teamwork, if you ask me, is still the answer.

When baby elephants are trained, they are tethered to a stake in the ground which prevents them from escaping. At first the elephant persistently struggles to get away but the stake is much stronger and the elephant soon learns it will not succeed, regardless of its efforts. As the elephant grows, the stake is replaced with a simple wooden stake that can easily be pulled from the ground. But oddly enough the elephant will not try to escape because it no longer questions its limitations.  It refuses to put forth effort where failure is surely the outcome….even though if it tried as an adult it could easily pull up the stake and run free.

We all have “stuff” in our lives that keep us tethered to our own imaginary stakes. Those stakes of fear and doubt are often easily removed if we choose and take action. The most exciting question you can ask yourself is where will YOU go after you escape the circus of fear and doubt?

Tell us your dreams!

Best,

Eva

Sometimes progress is easy and it just flows………sometimes.  More often than not we are met with obstacles.

Well, we hit ours at a million miles an hour, the two of us, Eva and Sue.  Idea’s flying like crazy, all over the place, all leading to…..THE BRICK WALL.

So what did we do?  We started writing this blog to help us get around, over, under, and through our creative obstacles.  Sometimes it’s hard to know when to temporarily walk away and take a deep breath. 

One never knows where inspiration will originate or when it will strike.  What we do know is that every time we hit “the wall” it’s not failure, it’s feedback.  We all must stop, reflect, and learn …and then continue the journey, whatever that may be.

 So what do you do when you hit your “BRICK WALL”?  Does it break you or do you eventually break through?

The only way we don’t make progress …is if we stop.  Don’t quit before pay day. 

You never know what lies on the other side of the wall.

Best!

Eva and Sue

On our journey to realizing our dreams, sometimes, while we are waiting, we can look at others, and in our impatience, find ourselves wanting what they have.

Envy is such a toxic emotion. The definition of envy is: “a feeling of discontent or covetousness with regard to another’s advantages, success, possessions, etc.”
