Get a Grip!

I am broken
I am shattered like a dream
I am lost.
I am bleeding
I am trampled like a weed

Every day starts again
like a hamster wheel
I run and run and
only spin
Don't remember how to feel

I am stumbling
I am falling
here within the dark

But it really doesn't matter
I'll just go back to start
because nothing is going to stop me
from being who I am
falling is just a chance to
get back up again

So I'll get a little dusty
there upon the ground
I'm not going to make it
a reason for a frown
I'll still grab my dreams
I'll not lose my grip
because I've got hands to
knock the dust off
and a heart that just won't quit

The power of belief is an amazing thing. While the poem below touches on a spiritual aspect any power of belief is a wonderful thing to see in action. You must believe you will be successful. Conditioning your heart and mind to believe is vital. If you don't believe in yourself who will? Are you thinking yes but you don't know ME. I'm a screw up. I have bad luck.No matter how hard I try it goes wrong. See the concept? You keep saying it and thinking you're a failure, then you are because that is what you believe.
But if you keep telling yourself you are a success your mind starts searching for ways to make that happen because you remove the defeated attitude from yourself and replace it with hope. Hope leads to action and action leads to success and it all started with belief.
Again while this poem is slanted towards a spiritual concept and the belief in can apply the power of belief to any area of life and become a success. if you believe in do I! :)

There is a place between the heart and soul
way back beyond those walls you've built
You might not even see it anymore
with so much sadness covering it
But just believe
that's all you have to do
When the time is right
God will bring it back to you
What could he bring you ask
after all the pain I've seen
once again just believe
go by faith
and you'll see
that there tucked in that little hiding space
in that tiny secret place
Are the dreams that refuse to die
They are hopes remaining for your life
just believe
and God will bring the good to be
maybe not in your time
and maybe you don't understand
but everything we need of worth
comes through his time and plan
He didn't give you life
just to let you cry
There's a spark inside of you
hiding with those sweet dreams too
just hold on ,through your grief
God will heal your heart
Just believe

Don't Ever Give Up!

Climbing to a Dream
~~ by Connie Whiting

A mountain is only as high
as the spirit inside
you, and a mountain is
only as wide
as big around
as the path that you choose
You don't have to try
you know
you can stop at the foot
of your mountains
in life
but where would be the joy living a life
where your
dreams would die at
your feet
So gather your courage
gather your strength
who knows how
high you can go
when the only ways up
at the end of your life
you can see with
joy in your heart
you kept up the climb
you gave it your all
you reached for your star
you didn't fall
no matter
how long
that it took
you climbed

You're going to succeed!

You're going to succeed! Not so sure? Well,there is some truth to that saying "fake it til you make it". Everyone has self doubts, especially when doing something new. Everyone fails too. But all that means is you learned a way
something wouldn't work. Good. It's out of the way! Now you have time and engery to focus on what will work!
Which brings me to what this blog is about. There are a lot of blogs out there
of successful people wanting to share their ONE and ONLY formula for success.
The way I see it though is that each person is unique.Your way to succeed might not be my way and visa versa. So I will be blogging articles, tips, websites, ideas and whatever else I can come up with to share with you to help you on your road to success! I will be right there traveling along with all of you towards reaching my goals as well. So if you are looking for the ONE answer it's not here.But if you want a little break in your day to be motivated
and possibly find something that helps you succeed, this is it! Welcome!
