There is nothing that cannot be transformed,
Even the most difficult situations have gifts within them.
Never formed, never lost
Always there, always inside
Just like a dream in my minds eye
Always there, always close by
Yet never formed, nor neither lost
It still remains; a dream locked inside
~ M. L. Adams
To wait on another is to give away your soul to another
To give over control to another is to pass away your faith to another
So take your control back, take your power back;
It’s the only way forward and there is no way back
Take action based on the best for all,
Not on where others may rise or fall
No matter how much it hurts, just do what is best
For there’s only one way forward and there’s no way back,
You have met with many a struggle before
Now you have the knowledge and you know this way forward
All is new and welcome in this place
All you have to do is choose this true way
Know what it’s like to be in that zone
To be all you can, with all that you know
To own your own life and not be owned by another
You have all you need within you you see; all that you need to now set you free
So choose this higher and equal way, choose the way you want to face
The choice is yours and yours alone
Don’t wait on another to show you this way
We are in control when we choose to be, so take that step now; it will set you free
~ M. L. Adams
It can be hard to let go
When its become all you know,
When the feeling’s become so strong
That you’ve held on for far too long
Then you realise it’s all a test
So you can really be at your best,
So you can beat all that tries to mistreat you,
Then nothing more can ever defeat you
So when this pattern is finally broken,
It is a promise it will all be forsaken
Sometimes you feel let down then you realise it was yourself
For nothing can be sought without first doing it within yourself
Nothing can be found without first the feeling have been found
That’s what the actions we take really demonstrate
For the outside is only a mirror of the inner causes in life that we make
~ Miranda. L. Adams
Listen and look,
Beauty is everywhere
This is what’s real
Just listen, look and feel
Use all your senses
To see what is true and real
Beauty is within and around you,
Its everywhere just waiting
For you to listen to look and to feel
Don’t hide or be afraid
From what is true and beautiful and real
Just open your heart and mind
Its within and all around you,
Just listen, look and feel
Recognise how far you’ve come, not just where you want to go. You’ll always continue to grow.
If you want a thing bad enough to go out and fight for it, to work day and night for it, to give up your time, your peace and your sleep for it
If all that you dream and scheme is about it and life seems useless and worthless without it
If you gladly sweat for, fret for and plan for it and lose all your terror of the opposition for it
If you simply go after that thing that you want with all of your capacity, strength and sagacity, faith, hope and confidence and stern for tenacity
If neither cold or poverty, famish or gout, sickness or pain of body and brain can keep you away from the thing that you want
If dogged and grim you be size and beget it, with the help of GOD you will get it.
~ Berton Braley
I heard this poem recited by Les Brown at the recent Success 2013 seminar in London, I was really struck by it, not just because of the dynamism of Les Brown but also the truth and power in these words. Les Brown before finishing his speech with this poem told us all the story of how he achieved what he has to date. The words in this poem describe just how he did it, equally so for all those who have risen to the top and inspire us greatly. The journey they go through to get there, all the hard work and effort is often missed or looked over, we can then hold them in this higher or better place that seems unreachable, but actually through their words and actions many of these highly successful and inspirational figures are teaching us exactly how to do it and that with enough focus and persistence anyone can. Here’s to winning, believe you can 🙂
Choices are the real gifts you contain
to create a life of real beauty or pain.
Classic wisdom and beautiful words..
Beautiful, simple words of wisdom from a noble prize winner…. Mother Teresa.
I was going through the Biography of Mother Teresa, and could not go past this passage. Felt the need to share with those who would not have had the privilege of reading the works of this lady.
I found this little passage great to reflect on ….. Be enlightened, find inner peace & serenity, and hope it can help some out there in a similar way.
It is amazing how the switch takes place within each of us by the second. When we are well grounded with steadfast principles that we could hang on to nothing will swing it either way. Enjoy the extract ……….
“People are often unreasonable, illogical and self-centred ; forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives; Be kind anyway.
If you are successful, you will win some false…
