Motivational Monday

BrotherWord - Motivational Monday

Talking about what you want out of life accomplishes very little.  It is perfectly fine to speak those things as if they are, try to will them into existence, but the only way those words ever materialize is if they are followed by actual work.  A wish is only as good as the potential, power, and perseverance it takes to turn that wish into reality.

Do not let the wish, the hope, the dream, be the beginning and end of what it is you are striving towards.  One step forward can catapult that wish and begin the momentum to success.  There are no magical or quick solutions, but earnest work yields results.  Anything worth having is worth working to achieve.  Whatever the dream, make sure it includes a great deal of doing!

At the end of the day, do not let the wish be greater than the work.  It is time to move past panning phase and into the production phase.  Let your will to succeed outweigh the lure of a wishful thought and do whatever it takes to transform the wish into work.  Dream big, work harder!

“You can’t cross the sea merely by standing and staring at the water.  Don’t let yourself indulge in vain wishes.” ~ Laurence J. Peter   

Thankful Thursday!

BrotherWord - Thankful Thursdays!

Ever thought what if or if only I would have done this or that?  We all have had those moments when we wished we can turn back the hands of time and have a do-over, a Mulligan.  The thing with do-overs are that it doesn’t guarantee we’ll get the desired outcome.  Instead of dwelling on the past, wishing to do something over, be THANKFUL for today and all it offers.  Today gives us the opportunity to make all our wishes come true, because truth be told, all we have control over is the here and now.  Wouldn’t it be great to make today the best day it possibly can be?  Take advantage of all that today brings to the table and watch how prosperous today will become.  Be THANKFUL for the big and the small and everything in between.  When we appreciate the present (today), we see the value in yesterday (history), and are not only prepared, but have a joyful expectation for what tomorrow (mystery) will offer.  Practice being THANKFUL for where you are, what you have, and what you’ve gone through.  These are the building blocks for the mind and soul that gives peace and purpose.  It soothes, teaches, and prepares us for the next phase.  THANKFUL on purpose and with a purpose, today and everyday!

What are you THANKFUL for today?  Who can you share your THANKFULNESS with?  Can BrotherWord help you discover or re-discover being THANKFUL on purpose?  Send your THANKFUL expressions, questions, and thoughts to BrotherWord in the comment section or at
