When we are down, if we will seek out someone else who has a problem and get involved in helping them solve it, we quickly forget our own.
God calls into action today
All those who are children of light;
Whatever our hand finds to do,
Let’s do it with all of our might. ~ Hess

12 Questions to Help You Move Forward

"To succeed means that you may have to step out of line and march to the sound of your own drummer."

Like a vehicle, we all need a little checkup from time to time. Here are a dozen questions to help you with your personal checkup:
  • Do you believe you were put on this Earth to fail?
  • Is it wrong to be wealthy?
  • Do you believe you have to go through bad times to get to good times?
  • Is it better to ask forgiveness than permission?
  • Who currently controls your life?
  • Were you designed to be led by others?
  • Do you really prefer mediocrity?
  • Who is ultimately responsible for you?
  • Are you preventing your own success?
  • Do you feel you deserve personal success?
  • Are you waiting for the world to come to you?
  • Will you take the action you need to take now?
"I must have been put on Earth to succeed and I have a responsibility to use my abilities to the fullest. I can see that wealth, honestly earned and well spent, is inherently good. I don't have to suffer now to experience happiness later. Being here is all the permission I need to succeed. I prefer excellence to mediocrity and I except full responsibility for myself. I will bring my talents to the world and not wait for it to come to me. And I'll act now even if my results aren't perfect."

Field and forest, vale and mountain,
Flow’ry meadow, flashing sea,
Soaring bird and flowing fountain
