Failure is Part of Success

failure is part of success

Life is very beautiful if you can manage to see the beauty in every situation. On the other hand it can also be very difficult and challenging. Many people assume that success is very simple and that there should be no downtime as you travel the path towards it, however, if you want to achieve something and you are willing to do everything that it takes to be a success – short of doing anything illegal, unjust or unkind – then you should not be afraid of failing somewhere along the way. In fact, failure is a huge part of success. As the leading experts say, failure is the chance to begin everything again but now you are wise and you are much closer to your goal. Continue reading

The Strength to Rise after a Fall

It is not how many times we fall that matters, but rather, how many times we get back up again.

“Remember to follow your heart and go after your dream! There will be people in your life that will tell you that you’re wasting your time. Ignore them. There are things that will happen that will catch you on the blind side and drop you to your knees. Pull yourself together and move past them. Above all, don’t take it personally. It’s called life.

Life is full of disappointments, failures and setbacks. None of those things can permanently stop you. You have the power in you to overcome anything that life throws at you. There is nothing as powerful as a made up mind. Surround yourself with people who remind you that you matter, and support you in the ways that matter most to you. No person, situation, or circumstance can define who you are. Don’t give up, cave in, or stop believing that it’s possible…”

Take Action

The journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step. This is the wisdom of Lao Tzu, the Chinese sage who wrote the Tao Te Ching. His name means ”old master”, which is rather appropriate considering the wisdom of his writings.

If you find yourself in an abusive relationship, or a situation where you are not being honoured, then begin with the smallest of steps to get yourself out of that situation.  It may seem like it’s an impossible mission to accomplish, however, if you don’t take action then nothing will ever be achieved.

Breaking Free of Ideas that Bind

it's your life create it

Often the reason that women stay in abusive relationships is because their mind keeps them there. Freedom is an inner thing, and if we are in an abusive relationship it’s because that relationship is merely a reflection of what is going on inside our own mind.  If you look around you in life, what you see is what you expect to see…. it all starts there.  So the question is, can I break free of this situation and mindset? you ask, and the answer is a very loud Yes!! Of course you can!

The mind takes alot to shift its thinking once you have gotten to a point where you have constant negative mind chatter.  The only way to heal it from that (because once things get to this stage your mind is actually suffering from a sickness), is to use affirmations, gamma meditations and binaural beats to help shift it back to a point where the majority of thoughts you think are positive.  There are many tools available for free on youtube that you can use to help shift your thinking.  There are lots of affirmation videos that can be downloaded as MP3’s that are full of positive suggestions to assist women to believe in themselves once more.  The mind is our biggest stumbling block.  If it isn’t used correctly it can become our enemy rather than our ally.

A Way to Increase Effectiveness when Studying


The article below is about increasing your ability to comprehend by using a technique called word clearing. I studied for a short time some of the courses offered at the Church of Scientology. One of their courses was How to Gain More Comprehension through Word Clearing. Of all the courses I studied, this was the one that I have used the most.  It certainly does work, although, if the person who has written an article or dialogue hasn’t explained themselves very well, then word clearing isn’t going to make it any easier to understand what they are trying to convey.  However, if the misunderstanding is due to not being able to understand the meaning of the words used in the article or dialogue, then word clearing is very useful indeed.
