Its Friday, Act Like It- “What’s On YouR BullShit List?!”

Come Clean!

“How you gon’ win when you ain’t right within!”- Lauryn Hill

You have to come clean! You have to deal with your bullshit! All of us have something that we need to deal with in our character or spirit. We lie, cheat, steal, talk about our friends behind their backs.  We’re jealous, envious, spiteful and selfish!

I’m talking about the ugly things that you do in secret or when you think nobody is watching.  Or those things that you do intentionally even when you know they’re wrong or they are going to really piss somebody off ! Or maybe you’re just plain old mean, insensitive or hurtful.

Whatever the case, you have to come to grips with the fact that maybe all those hurtful things your friends and family say about you are true!

It may not be that you’re a bad person but if your behavior hinders or interferes with the life and dreams of other people, then this is a problem! This type of behavior kills dreams and damages the spirit and you have no right to inflict this on anyone!

In order for us to make any kind of meaningful break through much less accomplish a lifelong dream, we have to address this sort of behavior, there is no getting around it!  And even though good things happen to bad people all the time, every day, eventually, one way or another, it all catches up to you.

If you’re generally a “good” person and most of us are, this task of identifying those things we need to come clean about maybe even harder than you expect.  We are so accustom to justifying our weaknesses or calling them something other than what they are. But it’s time to put on your big girl panties (excuse me fellas!) and tell it like it is!

So here’s my bullshit list (the short one)!

  • I’m socially insensitive and I don’t remember people’s name
  • I can be selfish
  • I only really  “like” my own kids
  • I can be thoughtless and thankless to those I love and those that love me

There is no 30 day or 12 step solution to fixing this. These changes must take place over time through your genuine, conscious and direct intention to do better.

So, in our effort to begin to deal with our “bullshit lists”, here are measures that will help us to do just that! Check It Out Here… believebegreat.com!

 

Its Friday, Act Like It!- The Mandela Spirit

I am amazed at how there are these people who come into the world just like we do, of a mother and father;

but unlike most of us, at some point in their lives, they come to this unequaled realization that their sole purpose for being here is for the salvation of a people… of humanity.

Just the thought of the immensity of the life and spirit Nelson Mandela puts in prospective that even though he is gone, we are still here and I think we are all graced with a certain portion of the Mandela Spirit.

And it is our responsibility to continue in our purposes whatever our contribution and to do so gladly.

bonsai-fb6Here is a small excerpt from my soon to be released eBook, How To Begin To Believe, 12 Steps To Believing You Can Do What Nobody Ever Told You, You Could !

Step 2: Forgiveness

“Forgiving ourselves can often be harder than forgiving others.   We can sometimes carry the heavy burden of guilt and disappointment for years for something we did, didn’t do or failed at doing.  The inability to forgive ourselves is unhealthy and keeps us anchored to the past and unable to move forward. Here are a few practices to help you to begin to let yourself off the hook and forgive yourself for anytime you have ever fallen short…”

“I forgive myself for what I’ve done and for all I didn’t do and embrace all the good that lies ahead”…Click to Tweet!
