Today’s Brilliance from Lauren Rosenfeld

All moments matter. Perhaps you believe that there are two types of moments: Ordinary moments and extraordinary moments; moments that are to be treasured and moments that might as well be pitched in the trash. But all of our "ordinary moments" are moments that we must learn to treasure. Why? Because these "ordinary moments" moments are like seeds from which the exotic flowers of extraordinary moments blossom. If we are expert gardeners, we will look at the humble seed and know that a blossom of remarkable beauty is waiting to be born from it. We know that if we take…

Today’s Brilliance from Patricia Varley

"Know thyself" and "To thine own self be true" are old but wise quotes that have been very important, sometimes painful and transformative and liberating lessons for me. A key technique in knowing myself that is vital to making life decisions that are aligned with being true to myself is developing, listening to and then trusting my intuition. Over and over again I continue to discover that my inner voice, what I call my intuitive knowing, or Divine Guidance, is always right. The problem I have had is that my head often overrides my gut feelings, that deep knowing in…

Today’s Brilliance from Tina Tessina

America's founding fathers were wise to embed the "A pursuit of happiness" in the DNA of the country - in the Preamble to the Constitution. It was a profoundly new idea that changed the world. Clients tell me, "I want to be happy!" and I show them how thoughts affect mood. How you relate to yourself can lift or dampen your spirits. Happy people have an easier life, bounce back from problems, and generate love. Research demonstrates we are hard wired to focus on problems, which creates physically and emotionally damaging stress. As we learn to focus on gratitude, the…

Today’s Brilliance from Alan Underkofler

Identify what you want, what you want achieve, and what your dream is. Not just any dream, identify your burning desire; the one dream you may or may not think is attainable. The one dream that no matter what someone says or does, no matter what obstacle is placed in front of you, and no matter how long it takes, you will achieve. Identify the one dream you MUST achieve for you! We all have one, some of us have two, and others have many... Identify one. And then do whatever it takes to achieve it! Whatever it takes, go…

Dare to Dream Big!

As we look throughout the world at those who have achieved the most in life, people like Bill Gates, Donald Trump and Warren Buffett, these are the people who have stretched their imaginations to unforeseen levels. They have dreamt at levels most people have never imagined. Their vision for what is possible stretches so far beyond anything any ordinary person would envision. Many people believe they have gotten lucky. The reality however, is that it's that simple skill, of dreaming big, that has guided them to their success, fame, and fortunes. You see, no one in this world has ever…

Today’s Brilliance from Carole Brody Fleet

Always stay true to who you are, deep down inside. It sounds easy, but there are those around you who will try to change who you are and what you stand for. It cannot be done and moreover, it should not be done. Everyone has dreams. Some of your dreams will come true. Some dreams will come true even bigger and better than you could have ever imagined. Some dreams will be realized right away and other dreams will come true later on in your life. Some dreams may never come true - but that should not ever stop you…

Bringing Joy Into Your Life

Having gone through one of the longest dark night of the soul experiences where I was forcibly separated from my young daughters for almost four years, fighting a complicated legal battle that kept me in a high security jail without the ability to defend myself, I immersed myself in reading to escape the dismal surroundings. Although the external reality of my life was horrific, what happened on the inside was transformational. I learned so much! It has become my purpose to help others who are facing tough times and help them learn how to create their dream lives and celebrate…

"Dare to be what your best self knows you ought to be. Dare to be a bigger human being than you have ever been. Have great hopes, and dare to go all out for them. Have great dreams, and dare to live them. Have tremendous expectations, and believe in them. The more you dare to be great, the more you will be great." ~ Norman Vincent Peale I dare you. I dare you to see yourself as God sees you - as mighty men and women of fearless courage, vast potential and spines of unbending steel. I dare you to…

5 Simple Steps to Success

What we think, feel, say to ourselves and others, and believe to be true creates our reality. Every day, we each choose whether we create our reality by design or by default. Based on the “CRAVE Your Goals!” program, here are five steps to create the reality you desire and deserve. 1) Clean Out the Clutter. Clutter distracts and confuses us and drains our energy. It often gets in the way of our goals. There's a universal law that states: The universe abhors a vacuum. So, when we clear away the physical clutter, as well as the emotional, mental and technical…

Angels Surround Us

When I was a young girl, barely in my twenties, my grandmother (then eighty-nine) turned to me. I still remember the look in her haunted eyes: "I'm so afraid of dying," she said. I didn't know what to say. I fled. For years it lay on my conscious that I had let her down. Today, years later, I've had so many personal experiences with angels and spirits and the invisible guardians that watch over us that I wish I had a second chance. I wish I'd said, "It's all right. There is no death. You are eternal - even your…

5 Simple Steps for Getting What You Want

In order to get what you want, you must first decide what you want. Most people really foul up at this crucial first step because they simply can't see how it's possible to get what they want, so they don't even let themselves want it. Don't sabotage yourself that way! Don't for a second think you have to figure out every step of the way when you're standing at the starting gate to a certain goal. First lock in your desires and have faith that your mind and the universe will work in synch to guide you toward them. For those who…

What Wouldn’t Have Happened

Tell me, what wouldn't have happened If you had never lived? Had never been born. If the ambulance driver rushing your mother to the hospital Had fallen asleep at the wheel... Who would we blame for making the world poorer without you? Perhaps the makers of his cough medicine who leaned too hard on the drowsy formula Causing him to lean likewise on the pedal. Perhaps the shift manager who scheduled him to drive his ambulance and his vehicle beyond their breaking point... Or maybe they deserve a round of applause Because all you've ever contributed was pre-mature abortion To…

Live Life Abundantly

I've lived in lack. For instance, for a time in my early days I survived on anemic welfare checks and degrading food stamps. And there was a time I lived in a 12-foot-long trailer with another person. I've lived in abundance. For instance, I've had two six-figure windfalls come in within a three-month period. And I've gone years at a time not having to work a job, having had enough money to live on. I found that financial lack often meant I had to do work I disliked doing in a place I disliked being. I've learned that financial abundance…

Today’s Brilliance from Carol Goddard

Dare to be YOU. Dare to be YOU, and live the unlived life within you, the life you were born to live. Have you ever felt like your life so far has been a diluted form of what is possible for you? Guilt and fear keep you disconnected from who you really are. When you reconnect to your essence, guilt and fear are no longer there, they have dissolved, and the magnificence of who you are radiates from you. Resistance is what stands between the life you live and the unlived life within you. Resistance comes in many forms, such…

Today’s Brilliance from Alina Frank

Reflecting upon the years of my work, I have found one consistent truth: one's emotional state will in no small way determine the quality of one's life, the depth of one's relationships, and the degree of physical well-being that is achieved. Stress is thought of as an amorphous catch-all, and we know it contributes to dysfunction and disease, but the truth is even more potent than that. Emotions are vibrational energy and energy is the source of all creations and manifestations. When we feel guilt about having more money than members of our family, we limit our ability to create…

Today’s Brilliance from Penny Kane

Each and every one of us is put here to do something spectacular, something that will better this earth. Your personality, your character traits, everything in your DNA was given to you as a gift. A gift that will propel you to new heights to achieve exactly what you came here to do. Trusting in your gifts and aligning yourself with integrity are two very important things to remember. When you come to your last day and take your very last breath, you cannot take money or fame with you. Those things are not reality and they do not serve…

Today’s Brilliance from David Daniels

If this were my last day, my only day - there is only love. All there ever was and will be is love. Brilliance comes from the inner knowing of this. And by love, I mean the connection of us humans in body, mind, and heart - souls together in harmony with gratitude for what is. When love is present everything radiates and beauty abounds. We are not captured and hostage to our personality structure, to our opinions or our judging mind, and we know that the fabric of the universe is seamless until we cut into it, creating cause…

Today’s Brilliance from Chris Kauza

To laugh often and much. My objective in life is to be happy at the end of each day. It's easier on some days than on others. Choose financial abundance and make no excuses. Go for and pursue "money", if you want. However, first understand "what" money is and "why" you are pursuing it. You can never be poor enough to help someone else and attaining the money is really only the beginning. When given a choice, take the risk! You and your life will be better for it. It is easier to tear something down, than it is to…

Today’s Brilliance from Robyn O’Brien

Hope is the knowledge that change is possible, even when it seems hard to imagine. In a world that very much feels like it has been thrown into a cuisinart, there are so many opportunities to be part of the solution. You bring a unique combination of heart and talent to the world that no one else possesses! While the world tends to favor the status quo and conformity, there is so much fun to be had in the experience of living, growing and finding the courage to live a purpose driven, rewarding life. It won't be without challenges and…
