Glass overflow?


Age old question; Is your glass half full or half empty? Well after listening to and reading many theories, It is all in your perspective right? You decide how you would like to see your glass! Your perspective is rather easy to identify from others too, because it comes out in your attitude. But you are smart, and you make the best of it and you put on a good cover. But you really are not satisfied with where you are at today.

I was listening to a YouTube message from Earl Nightingale, he suggests that a good way to quickly define your attitude is to answer this question: Do you feel the world is treating you well? if your answer is a quick yes, you have a good attitude. If your answer is No, your attitude is bad. if you have trouble deciding, your attitude is probably average. Now I know that not everyone is going to agree with this statement. Crappy things happen! I have had PLENTY of crappy things happen in my life; I’ve tragically lost close family members (over and over) and my ex-husband left me with three children to raise on my own, and that’s just to name a few.

But I always choose to be optimistic and do my best to view my life from a “cup overflowing” perspective. It is work, every day, to reach that mentality, but it is worth it to me to always know that I can seek in and rely on a reserve of abundance when I trust the universe will provide. I’ve learned to understand the frequencies of attitude within and how it brings about the realty in life. I hope you can learn this too. Feel free to comment or inbox with any questions or to start a discussion.

I had a conversation with one of my best friends recently. He works for a large company and is looking into other departments he could potentially venture. He has strong unique skills in different areas, and definitely strong interest and qualifications for the department he wants. Just like all of us, we already own the natural skills and abilities to live out our highest potential. I was pleased for him. So pleased that it made me cry. During our discussion, I literally started crying! I get so frustrated. I aim to live and fulfill my purpose every day. I believe that I should do what I love, every day. My income, should stream from what I love. My time should be spent on what I love. My life, should be filled with everything that I love. I accept that I haven’t busted into my dream life yet. I’m still renting a town home and I desperately need a new sectional.

But unlike him, I don’t have an organizational catalogue of jobs, or a specific job title or position within a company that I strive for. I never did. I’ve never had a goal to be a “nurse” or an “accountant” or a “flight attendant”. My dream job is not made yet. My dream job is undefined. (Which according to the law of attraction is an error on my part…I’m working on it!), So I allow myself to fall under the “entrepreneur” category. Although I have not made enough money to support myself for a week. So technically I’m still in the ‘starting’ phase…
I have a strong desire to bring people with like minds together and facilitate conversation for folks who feel the same desires, frustrations and are wanting to fulfill their potential but are still in the starting phase. I call us StarTreps; Starting Entrepreneurs.

Maybe we are still in the idea phase. Maybe we already have an idea. Maybe we have pre/launched! Maybe we need support, discussion or encouragement from other StarTreps because the people who are ok with “go to school, get a job, retire” keep telling us to “get a job!” and worse they tell us “That’ll never work“.

I work too, I have a job (or many jobs). I have to survive and I have respect for our community and our economy. And I like stuff! (And I have three growing boys to support!)
So I am proposing a coffee gathering. It’s free to attend. You buy your own coffee. It’s open to everyone, you don’t have to share your ideas, you can come just to chill and enjoy your coffee. But I’m excited to start the conversation and facilitate the potential. Send me an email for more info.

This is a message I shared with a group recently and I believe it to be true for everyone. I have also posted it on another blog site:

Everything that you want in your life is up to you to pursue. Each bright idea that you get, is inspiration, it’s a message that only you are getting at that moment, and you need to listen. Open your mind, and remember to keep your mind open, make time to for your mind to be free so that you can listen to the inspiration. A full life is good, but filling your spare time with effortless and mindless activities like sitting in front of a tv for a day or interacting with friends to you means browsing facebook, these are not the situations you will likely find yourself when opportunity knocks.

You have to take action. Act on something. If you have a grand idea that you want to create a new item or a new company, you might not have all the resources to implement it at that moment, but you must take action: take notes, do research, ask questions, think of what you will name it, what will you do on a day to day basis if this company or idea were to be implemented. Always take action. You don’t have to know the how to grow the why.

Why do you want something? Always ask yourself why? This is your motivation. I love to give encouragement and motivation on taking action and making decisions on the choices you will make that will make the rest of your life. Maybe it will matter, maybe you never think of it again, but I am motivated by sharing my experiences with you, hoping that you will listen and have an incredible life because you decided to be very aware of your choices. Remember your why and this will motivate you. If you don’t know you’re why, find it.

Find what motivates you. What excites you? Ask your friends and your family, What do I get excited about when I talk about it? When does my voice get louder and I can’t stop smiling about? What makes me happy? What do I like doing for people? What gets me excited? What is my dream? No one has ever been successful doing something that they didn’t love. Find what you love.  And follow it. Anyone who has ever been successful in what they did, was doing something that they loved.

Be sober and take responsibility for your decisions. Chose to be positive. Having a bad attitude and a good attitude is your choice. Consider it a pair of pants you put on. If you wake up and you’re grumpy, and things go on through out your day, consider you are wearing your grumpy pants. And imagine you change your pants, and put on your happy pants, or your party pants. Or your glasses. Your grumpy glasses and your happy glasses. But make the choice.

Not making a choice is making a choice. You are choosing not to care, not to change, not to be happy. It is a choice.

Chose to be confident. Each of you are an amazing creation. You are unique, you are supposed to be different. You are supposed to have different ideas, different styles, different ideas, different interests, different hair, different incomes, different history’s, different family structures, different goals, different opinions. Speak them. Be confident in who you are and how you are different. You are what makes the world go round. You are the future of this community, this city, this province, this country, this continent and this whole world. Without your differences, this world would be pretty lame, nothing would change, no one would be happy, nothing would improve, and nothing would be created.
