Moral obligation to live your dream

Filed under: Abundance, Fear Busting, Motivation — tshombe @ 5:10 am

Do you have a life purpose?  A fulfilling life dream full of complete and total joy?

Are you living that dream?

Something Dr. Dõv Baron said last weekend keeps going round and round my brain — just a few short words, but boy, do they pack a wallop.

And that’s why I ask the question.  Are you living right now your purpose?  Are you doing what you are meant to do on this Earth?

I guess the logical next question would be, if not, why not? 

Dr. Dõv said that all of us have a moral obligation to live our dream(s) and inspire others in the process to live theirs. 

"If you’re not living your dream right now, you’re flattening the dream of those who look up to you." 

Wow.  If that doesn’t make you sit up and take notice, I don’t know what would!

Dõv doesn’t stop there (You didn’t think he would, did you?)

"You have the responsibility to live your dream," he continued.  "Sell them (those looking up to you) your excuses and all you do is tell them it’s OK to have there’s."

What do you think of that?

Kinda makes you wanna give yourself a swift kick in the pants to get up and get going to living your fulfilling, inspiring life right now, doesn’t it?

Filed under: Personal Development — tshombe @ 2:26 pm

How are you doing with your resolutions and goals for 2007?  Now that it’s already the end of the first quarter of the year, it’s a good time to check in to see how things are going.

How can you do that?

My good friend, Andrew Mugford, gives a super-great recommendation (Thanks, Mugs!) to help you do just that on his blog, I Figure…, a recommendation I want to also share with you here.

The Father of the Life Coaching industry, Tony Robbins, is offering a FREE online coaching seminar (in the form of the audio of Tony giving the seminar and a downloadable workbook) to help you stay on track (or get on track in the first place) to really accomplish whatever it is you desire.

You deserve your best life.  So, give this seminar a spin and work the workbook.  You’ll be glad you did.

Happy Spring! Are you feeling good?

Tulip, 2005 Floriade, Canberra; by John O’Neill
If I hadn’t opened an e-mail this morning announcing the first day of spring, I would have missed it.  This is definitely a day of celebration.  What a great day!

There’s so much that comes to mind when I think of spring:  Newness.  Freshness.  Life.  Activity.

What do you think of?

In my neck of the woods here in the Pacific Northwest, I have to say I am amazed at the tenacity of nature.  The weather hasn’t altogether been very conducive to springlike growth.  For example, at the beginning of the month, it snowed!  We’ve also had heavy rains and windstorms.

Yet, the daffodils, the tulips, and the irises are are not deterred!  I’m reminded of Anais Nin’s great quote:

"And the day came when the risk it took to remain tight inside the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom."

Even the amaryllis I have in my home (of which I had my doubts as to whether it was coming back) is now happily emerging from its nutrient soil!

How about you?  Are you likewise reaching for the light even in times of stress or challenge, spreading your petals wide 570415-737197-thumbnail.jpg
Nina Simone – "Forever Young, Gifted & Black"
open toward the sun?

What one small thing can you do to make this day — today and every day — a new day?

When I received that Happy Spring email this morning, I thought of Nina Simone’s soulful "Feeling Good."  So I opened my
iTunes on my computer and listened.

I wish I could play it for you here, but copyright laws do not permit that.  But, I can share with you the lyrics!

Can you hear her emotion?  Can you feel her energy?  Are you feeeeeelin’ good?

Feeling Good

Birds flying high you know how I feel
Sun in the sky you know how I feel
Reeds driftin on by you know how I feel

Its a new dawn
Its a new day
Its a new life
For me, yeah

Its a new dawn
Its a new day
Its a new life
For me
And Im feeling good

Fish in the sea you know how I feel
River running free you know how I feel
Blossom in the tree you know how I feel

Its a new dawn
Its a new day
Its a new life
For me
And Im feeling good

Dragonfly out in the sun you know what I mean, dont you know
Butterflies all havin fun you know what I mean
Sleep in peace when day is done
Thats what I mean

And this old world is a new world
And a bold world
For me

Stars when you shine you know how I feel
Scent of the pine you know how I feel
Oh freedom is mine
And I know how I feel

Its a new dawn
Its a new day
Its a new life
For me
Im feeling good

How you feelin’?  Good, I hope!

Happy first day of Spring!
