Today’s Brilliance from Gail Lynne Goodwin

If I could share 500 words to inspire, this is the important wisdom I'd want to pass along to others...

  • I’d like to share a few things I’ve learned…

    Gratitude! Begin and end your day with gratitude. What you focus on grows, so focus on good things. Develop an attitude of gratitude.

    Realize that what’s happening around you isn’t who you are. Illusions can appear real but we get to choose whether or not to buy into them. You can be the chess master or the pawn- your choice.

    Dream big and make life fun! Do something outrageous each day. Follow your passion. Believe in yourself. Change your attitude to “I’ll see it when I believe it”, not the other way around. Happiness is a choice. You have the power to do, be or create anything you choose. All things are possible-if you never give up!

    Take responsibility for your actions and inactions. You choose how to act or react. No one can make you feel anything without your permission. Therefore, act don’t react. Choose consciously and wisely. You are only one choice away from changing your world. Start with your beliefs, which will lead your thoughts, which will create your actions, which will produce your results.

    Life is full of little curves and there will be times when you’ll get caught up in the drama of life and forget who you are. It’s not important that you forgot, but in how quickly you can remember.

    Play and don’t take yourself or the world so seriously. Create reasons to laugh many times each day.

    Follow your heart- not your fears. Fear is nothing more than False Evidence Appearing Real. Replace negative thoughts with positive ones. Let your actions come only from a place of love. Trust. Infinite possibilities are born of faith. Focus on the WHY of life and not the HOW. Where focus goes, energy flows.

    Love yourself so that you can love others. Know that you are enough. Without arrogance, be self-confident kind and compassionate. Pass on the love that has been given to you. Leave smiles in your wake.

    Be the best friend you can be. Touch other hearts. Share hugs. Build a community to support one another. Joys shared are doubled, while pain shared is halved. Be there for each other.

    Choose to love with all your heart, even if it sometimes breaks. Treasure your beloved. Know the meaning of bliss. Build your life as one, without losing who you are. Keep the passion alive daily.

    Live your life knowing that abundance is already yours. Set your goals high and do something everyday to move forward. Be open to possibility. Allow magic to happen. Do what you love and love what you do and you will never “work”.

    Give back. Be generous. Remember that the fastest way to get unstuck is to do something for someone else.

    Take care of your body and keep it strong. Nourish it with good foods, lots of water and long walks in nature. Massage it often. Get sweaty. Build strong muscles. Think healthy thoughts. Breathe and get plenty of rest.

    Know that neither you nor nothing in your life needs to be “fixed”. You are whole, healthy and complete right now. Keep things in perspective and find the beauty. Remember what’s important- and forget what’s not. Live your life with no regrets. Bless the past and let it go. Bless your enemies. Forgive others and yourself.

    You can’t fly with an anchor tied to your feet. Live in the present. It’s the only thing that truly exists.

    Take time each day to connect to the Divine. Trust that there is a plan even if you only see a fraction of it. Be not afraid to surrender your beliefs on how things “should” be, to the greater will of the Universe. Go deep inside. Seek knowledge while knowing that all of the answers to all of the questions are already inside of you. You are so very wise. Allow Spirit to talk to you and through you. Be still, listen and you will hear the answers. Meditate on understanding, not outcome, knowing there is blessing in everything. Know that you are never alone. You are a spiritual being enjoying a human experience. You are a part of something so much greater that will live forever.

    Spread your wings and fly. You belong up with the stars. The world is yours. And remember, it’s only when you have the courage to step off the ledge that you’ll realize you’ve had wings all along! May your life be filled with infinite joy.
