More Brilliance from Trisha Sugarek

I sit in my cabin in the woods as I write my message to the world. With only five hundred words to use, I am inspired to send my message to young women. Growing up in traditionalism as I did, I found my freedom and voice later in life. I discovered that I could be so much more than a wife or mother. I COULD BE ANYTHING I WANTED TO BE. An old refrain certainly, but it's old because it's TRUE. Don't do it someday, DO IT TODAY! I started out standing in the second-hand light of a man. [Traditional, remember?] I…

Today’s Brilliance from Jenny Lynn Anderson

My message is this: our valleys can be purposeful and our pain can be productive. These three critical steps might lead you through difficult times: 1. No obstacle can be faced as a worrier. You must allow God to be your warrior. Remember "If only" (what has already happened) and "What if" (what might happen) are the rigid destructive duet of worry. They are deadly consumers of our thoughts regarding yesterdays and tomorrows. Replace worry with war. Commit to putting God in your Army, allowing Him to do battle with those fears which hold you captive. If we put our…

Today’s Brilliance from Gary Goldstein

Live your life knowing that people are inherently good, with unlimited potential to do great things. It is our actions and behaviors that define us to our friends, families, and fellow man, and the continued positives we display in life will have that much more of a domino effect and spread good will and joy to those around us. It makes no difference what corner of the world we come from, what color our skin is, what religion we adhere to, how much money we have in the bank, what kind of car we drive, or where it is we…

Today’s Brilliance from Dr. Bob Wright

Although I've had some amazing opportunities and successes in my life, I find it a bit presumptuous to say what wisdom I want to pass on to humanity. After all, I am a part of humanity and I am learning to do anything I suggest. However, a few lesson/challenges that guide me in my efforts include: Live in the now and be yourself. That is probably the most difficult thing in the world one can do. I have heard it said that it is easier to die for your country than to live authentically and genuinely for the truth and…

Today’s Brilliance from Janet Perez Eckles

I had dreams, expectations and plans. But all ended when a black curtain covered my world. At 31 years old, a retinal disease brought complete blindness. And hope for happiness faded into the fog of fear. I looked through the window of life and glanced at the only thing left: the ability to make choices. And how sweet. The freedom to make choices was the gift wrapped in promises for a new tomorrow. For the good choices brought a colorful glimmer into my darkness. And in that physical darkness, I chose to see the best of life. I discovered these…

Today’s Brilliance from Dain Heer

What if you knew you could change anything in your life? And if you knew that change could come easily, would your life look different than it does now? So many of us go around believing that we are "stuck" with the lives we have, not realizing that there is a completely different possibility available—yes, even for YOU. You really can change almost anything. I'm living proof. 12 years ago, I was going to kill myself—literally—because I was tired of struggling and suffering. And I changed it. Now, I travel the world sharing with people tools that will allow them…

Today’s Brilliance from Tammy Mastroberte

Life is much more than a string of seemingly disconnected, chaotic events devoid of meaning and direction. There is a cosmic intelligence - be it God, Spirit, the universe or simply love - that connects us all, and when we tap into this brilliance available to us, a whole new world can emerge before our eyes. Each one of us is a beaming soul encased in a human body - here to learn, grow, evolve and help one another - and when the body dies, this part of us lives on. I believe we come to this physical world knowing…

Today’s Brilliance from Cheryl Hunter

As a teenager, I traveled overseas with nothing but an over-packed suitcase and a dream of leaving the remote Colorado horse ranch of my childhood for the big city. No sooner did I land in France than a man with a big, very nice-looking camera around his neck approached me. He said he could make me a model. He promised me an exciting life of big-city living and a future that sounded too good to pass up, so I went with him and his friend. They drugged me, took me to an abandoned construction site, beat me and raped me.…

Today’s Brilliance from Meryl Davids Landau

You, and your spiritual practice, are perfect just as they are. If you read that and rolled your eyes, you've got some work to do. We live in a culture of criticism. Our moms told us to stop sucking our thumbs; our teachers circled (in red!) every mistake we made; our friends and the media constantly remind us that few people are sufficiently thin or attractive; and every time we leave a movie, the first question we're asked is, "What did you think?" So it isn't surprising that we fall into the habit of judging ourselves. What's more, we constantly…

Today’s Brilliance from Prasann Thakrar

Inspiration! The word itself sounds, for a lack of a better word, inspirational, doesn't it? (As Gordon Gekko, a character played by Michael Douglas, in Wall Street, would say if he were writing this piece.) It has this aura about itself; this uplifting feeling to it! You may or may not have heard the meaning and source of this wonderful word - In-Spirit. Meaning, one becomes connected to their spiritual source; i.e., one is "in" spirit. However, I would say that it is actually us getting to a place of knowing that we are already connected to, and part and parcel…

Today’s Brilliance from Bob Dixon

I am an American who is fortunate to have had jobs that allowed me to travel to different countries. Over the past 30 years I've been in more than 35 countries in Europe, the Middle East and Asia. During many of those trips I was able to talk with hundreds if not thousands of people in those countries who represented different parts of the culture, community and workforce, such as company CEO's, and other executives, managers, engineers, production workers, hotel employees, taxi drivers, waiters and waitresses and others. Many of them were also parents. From all of those conversations, I…

Today’s Brilliance from Rachel Cherie Wood

Sometimes it seems like life flies by too fast. Sure, there are days where boredom stretches the hours or circumstances make a week feel like a year, but regular day-to-day living seems to have a tendency to accelerate over time. The opportunities, ideas, and dreams we start off with as teenagers slip through our fingers as we push through college and stumble into adulthood trying to make heads or tails of what we're supposed to do in life. We try and prioritize responsibly, putting first things like school, making money, and/or paying off debt. Often this cascade of to-dos never…

Today’s Brilliance from Sarah Ezekial

Imagine being told that your life is going to end very soon. Then imagine being told that before you die you are going to become progressively disabled. This is what I was confronted with ten years ago. This is not the type of news that most people will ever have to deal with, thankfully. But everyone will be challenged in their lives at some point, either mentally, physically or both. How should we deal with such challenges, especially life-changing events? I believe that our biggest enemy is fear. It can totally paralyse a person and stop us living a full…

Cherish Your Relationships

Cherish your relationships. When we think of the word "relationship" we often think of our closest, intimate connections with others such as spouse, partner, parent, child, family members and even pets. Yes, I believe we need to deeply adore and cherish those relationships. When is the last time that you told them that you loved and appreciated them? Do you know their language of love, and how they personally prefer to be adored? Some people like physical touch, gifts, quality time, acts of service or words of appreciation. Take the time to learn your loved ones' preferred way to be…

Today’s Brilliance from Dave Taylor

One of the greatest failings in business school is that our future business leaders are taught to ask "what can you do for me?" or, in the words of Janet Jackson, "what have you done for me lately?" This isn't just a business view, however; this permeates modern Western culture and makes the words of John F. Kennedy ring hollow: "Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country." (Few people also recall the next line in Kennedy's speech: "My fellow citizens of the world: ask not what America will do for…

Today’s Brilliance from Mindy Audlin

"Know that you are loved." If I had one final opportunity to impart wisdom to the world, this would be my mantra. To my husband and our three year old little girl: Know that you are loved. To the people who have stood by me through the changing scenery of life: Know that you are loved. To the people whose short-sightedness and judgments created barriers along my way: Know that you are loved. To the soldier who stands guard in the dark hours of night. To the elected officials who sort through the legislation that shapes our society. To the…

Today’s Brilliance from Dr. Robyn Odegaard

You don't have to look very hard to find people being mean to each other. It is all over reality TV and in the office under the guise of 'office politics'. It happens in clubs, on teams and in volunteer groups. There are 'monsters in the minivan' at play dates and mean girls and bullies at school. But you don't have to allow it in your life. You can make it stop. You can address it by owning your power and taking control of conversations. Own your side of conversations. You have the opportunity to state what you need, want,…

Today’s Brilliance from Marie Jones

The worst possible way to die is with regrets. Regrets for things not done, dreams left unlived, and desires left untended to. To die with regrets is to deny the life force we were infused with, to turn away from the road that leads to our destiny, and to never allow our true purpose to see the light of day. Most of us think that we will one day regret the things we did do, but it's the things we don't do that will bring us despair and a deep sense of loss when we leave this place. Each of…

Today’s Brilliance from Pam Grout

Be recklessly generous and relentlessly kind. Therapists tell us that until we root out the deep, dark recesses of our unconscious minds, it's impossible to reach self-fulfillment. A fully-realized person, they insist, must dig for hidden secrets that make him feel unworthy, must dive for past cruelties inflicted by her parents. But what I want to know is, "While we were down there with flashlights, why didn't we look for our souls?" We've spent 20 years excavating the darkness, when right under the next rock is a world of wonder and brilliance. Yes, I'm talking about our spiritual side, that…
