Believe in Yourself

VictoryA man can be as great as he wants to be.
If you believe in yourself and have courage,
determination, dedication, competitive drive and
if you are willing to sacrifice the little things in
life, and pay the price for the things that are
worthwhile, it can be done”
Vince Lombardi

Whatever I can imagine I can achieve. Whatever I can dream, I can become. For my Heavenly Parents expect nothing more of me than to accomplish anything I believe I can be or do.

How many times have we talked ourselves out of being or doing something great. We will say to ourselves, I am not smart enough, I am too old, too young, somebody has already done and that, I don’t have enough money. The list goes on and on.

In Exodus 3:14 it says, “And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I am. Thou hath sent me unto you. When we attach “I Am “statements to things we say, we are using the name of God. When we use positive or negative statements with I AM, we magnify these beliefs. We need to be careful how we use the words I AM. in our everyday lives. Start saying “I am good, I am great and I am happy.”

Starting today, we need to remove all excuses and start believing in ourselves. There is nothing in this world we can’t accomplish, when we believe in ourselves.

We need to remove all “stink-en think-en” from our thoughts, and start saying yes to our potential. If you knew you couldn’t fail, who would you be or what would you do with your life?

Everyday we need to tell ourselves, we are a child of God who loves us, and we love Him. We need to start showing God what a great person he created when He created us.

Our mind is so powerful. It can either create a dam, stopping our progression, or open the flood gates to success. Let’s start believing in ourselves becoming what God knows we can become. Let’s do many remarkable things, as we reach our full potential.

True Happiness

Boy playing in wheatYou can be as happy as you make up your mind to be. Being happy doesn’t mean that everything is perfect. It means that you’ve decided to look beyond the imperfections in life.

Being happy is an attitude. The people that are the happiest are happy under every circumstance, regardless of their social status, their age, religion or race. They are the bright light when they enter a room.

Have you ever been so happy that you lose track of time? You are so engaged in what you are doing, two hours seems like only five minutes has gone by. This is bliss. You are in the happiness zone.

I remember as a child, my brother Mel and myself asked our parents if we could go play. We couldn’t have been older than nine or ten at the time. We went to Steve’s house for a while. Then we decided to all go over to our house. On the way over to our house, we cut through a field where we noticed an old barn door was open.

So we went inside. We found a barn full of wheat. This was a barn that used to have many animals, but now it was just used for storage. We started jumping in the wheat. It must have been 6-8 feet deep.

We started diving and swimming in the stuff. We even buried ourselves. We found a way to climb into the rafters of this old barn, and jump into the wheat. Before we knew it, we were pulling wheat out of our shoes, hair, our pants pockets, and our underwear.

We decided to take off all of our clothes, and jump in the wheat nude. It made it easier to shake the wheat from our clothes.

We were gone for hours. By the time we got home, we knew we were in trouble. It was way past dinner. It had been so much fun that even going to bed without dinner didn’t matter.

I still remember thinking it was not possible that we had been gone for hours. Those hours seemed like minutes, I was truly happy.

A Happy Memory


When I peel an orange, the natural oils spraying from the orange are inviting and creates an environment that is happy and uplifting. The smell of an orange also reminds me of Christmas. For many this is when very happy memories occur. I find it interesting how powerfully connected our memory is to our sense of smell.

Life happens to everyone. One day I was with my friend Charlie. On one of his rare days off we decided to go on a little road trip to visit some of our  friends. We visited for a while. Before we left, Michelle asked me if I wanted to have a Zyto hand scan, to see what essential oils my body needed most at that point in my life.

Let me back up a bit, for those of you who don’t understand what Zyto technology is. It is a machine that looks like a giant computer mouse that sends impulses from your body to a computer. Then it measures how many bio markers are out of the normal range. There are 76 markers possible. The higher the mark, the more things in your body are not in the normal range.

After I did the Zyto scan I was pleasantly surprised how accurate the scan was. For the past few days I had been feeling a little bit down and discouraged, and also having a lack of energy. The number one essential oil that showed up on my scan was orange. Time and time again I have seen first hand the accuracy of the Zyto hand scan.
