I am committed to being a better person than I was yesterday. Better thoughts. Better decisions. Better actions.
At this particular time in my life while in the midst of a six month indoor recovery period from a broken hip, I truly want to be a better man. I’ve recently turned 59 and am positioned and poised to have the best year of my life financially and spiritually speaking. I’ve been struggling for over two decades in the attempt to build abundance in my life – abundance in health, wealth and love. To me, these are the most important elements in life for a well balanced, happy, prosperous and fulfilling existence. If I’m to obtain these sacred gifts that I’ve been working so hard to acquire all these years, then I must be a better man than I am at this time in my life. Starting today I’m going to start being a better person who makes better decisions, has better thoughts and acts better towards people.

“ The greatest waste in the world is the difference between what we are and what we could become. ”
~ Ben Herbster
We are what we are, and we are where we are in life because of all the actions we have taken and choices we have made up to this point. If you’re not happy with where you are now and who you are now in life, then initiate a change in your life for the better. To change a pattern or habit you’re not happy with and to convert it into something positive, you need to imagine your day being just the way you want it to be and relishing the moment you’re in during this time. You can do it during a quiet time — while you’re about to sleep, or when you just wake up, or during lunchtime, or while on a break. It should be a meditative experience so you can completely feel the effects of the positive thinking permeate into your mind and soul. Do this everyday and eventually you will see improvements in your life to some extent. Just be sure and record the mistakes that you made during that day so that you don’t do them again, or do them differently so the outcome is beneficial for you. It’s all about relating your experiences each day to the ones that you want to be living. Have fun making changes for the better in your life and becoming the person you want to be!
“In the hopes of reaching the moon men fail to see the flowers that blossom at their feet.”

I am convinced that there are no “secrets” to happiness or success. As much as authors, publishers and our own minds would like to convince us that shortcuts exist, they do not. Living a successful life is pretty simple. You create a vision for the future, formulate a strategy and then work hard to achieve it. There are no shortcuts or secrets to this formula. Accepting this will get you much further down the path to happiness than anything else. So, choose to be happy and watch your world blossom into something beautiful.
