Are Your Words Hurting or Healing?

Words can be used to hurt or to heal, the choice is usually ours to make. I watched someone deliver a speech today and he had a great story. When he was only 6 years old, his mother told him in very clear words that he would never amount to anything. That was the recurring theme within the conversation between his parents and him until he permanently left the house when he turned 15.

When he joined the army, he was lucky to encounter one of his superior who saw something greater in him and spoke healing words. Those healing words, words of encouragements, created a new vision in his mind. He went on to heal from that abusive childhood and grew stronger and more confident in himself. I can’t imagine the damage such words would do to a child, or an adult for that matter.

Each and every one of us on the planet has experience hard times in one form or another. In every interaction we have with others and with ourselves, let’s remember to always speak words that heal, and never words that hurt.

My Top 5 Goals for 2017

As a tradition, I used to start the year with a list of 10 to 25 goals. After learning about goal settings and top performance, I shrunk that list to 5. The list of 5 is much more effective and it forces me to focus on what’s important. For 2017 below is my list of goals:

  1. Study for and successfully pass my California Real Estate License Exam.
  2. Earn >= $100 / month from speaking opportunities (including product sales).
  3. Reduce my weight from 197 to 180 during the first 6 months of the year to remain in great physical condition.
  4. Continue teaching at the local college.
  5. Start and complete my change of status.

In my journal, I also specify how I have to be and what I have to do for my goals to be executed successfully. There are a few comments I could make about those goals and why they are important, but I will leave that for a possible future post.

What are your top 5 goals for 2017?

Is there one absolute absolute in life?

After my weekly meeting with coach Linda, a question came to mind as I was driving home. You might have already asked yourself that question at some point or another during your lifetime. The question is: Is there any absolute truth in this universe? Marianne Williamson Quote

The question was prompted because during my interaction with Linda, the beauty of life and its wonders hit me in the face, as it very often does. When you tune in to the channels that broadcast peace, good health, financial abundance, you cannot help but be dazzled by life’s beauty. As many as we are on the planet, each of us is unique and has a different experience than anyone else on the planet.

If there is one absolute absolute, it is that “Every human experience is valid.” Everything is right with you, and me and everyone else on the planet. We are just experiencing the various possible expressions of Life, and they are infinite. That is why no two humans have the same fingerprint. If you have been led to believe that there is success and failure, top and bottom, know that there is always room at the top.

The absolute absolute in life is that “Your human experience is valid” as it is. However if you don’t like it, you have been given the power to make any change to move into any direction you desire. That power is activated once you begin to zoom in on what you want and keep thy eye single. The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light. Matthew 6:22 (KJV)

EVERYONE is a manifestation of the One WHOLE One. The multiverse is made up of parts which are NOT separate from, but are all parts OF God. Since you’ve been granted free will by your Creator, however, it takes an effort to be AWARE of being at one with the Whole, while still being aware of your individuality. Source:

You are beautiful, and Life is Good! 😀
