神 爱 你,并 且 为 你 的 生 命 有 一 奇 妙 的 计 划。

Do you believe that you reap what you sow? In other words do you actually get the results that you caused to come about by your actions? I include a fun mental exercise at the end of this post. This post will be hard for many people to understand.

Negative thoughts bring about some sort of negative consequence. Negative thoughts are those dealing with the fearsome foursome:

1. Fear  2. Anger  3. Depression  4. Guilt

It is said that all negative thoughts fall into one or more of these four categories. For example, worry is a kind of fear. Shame is a form of guilt. Sadness is a form of depression. Frustration and lack of forgiveness is anger.

These negative thoughts cause the body to make toxic chemicals flow into the bloodstream. They also tend to bring about more negative thoughts, more intense negative thoughts. If a person keeps thinking negative thoughts it almost always causes him to do negative things or say negative words that can cause serious problems. A business speaker said that negative thoughts can put enough toxins in the blood stream of a man or woman that if you drew a sample of blood and injected it into a rat, it would kill the rat.

If we sow positive thoughts we get stronger and more loveable. To think about things that we like, love or are attracted to is sowing positive thoughts. We are able to deal with pressure at work better, handle relationships better and just about every aspect of life. Love is the most powerful force in the universe. Love makes a person stronger and happier. This is true for every person and it is true all the time.

Isaac Newton said that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. This is a law of nature that has been proven for hundreds of years in physics. But the amazing thing is that this is just another way of saying you reap what you sow. Some call it the Law of Attraction or Karma.

People who are successful in life (by just about any definition of success) are the ones who think positive thoughts and therefore use the power of love. Some achieve great success through hard work and talent, some have little talent but apply lots of hard work and the power of love.

An Olympic athlete competes because he loves the sport or he loves the idea of becoming a champion or he loves being in front of a crowd of people. He/she has to somehow be attracted to a sport. That person has to have faith, or you could call it confidence, that he can do well at the sport, otherwise he won’t be willing to do the work required to be successful.

If you want the life of your dreams, visualize it every day, love the idea and have faith. Be willing to love your work so that you work hard. The more you visualize it and love the idea, the stronger you will become. Think about things your like, food you like, places you like, things you like, TV shows, music, movies, sports, food that you like.

Many believe that everything that happens to you is a result of what you sowed, or planted in life with your thoughts, words or actions. Some don’t want to believe it because it puts too much pressure on them. Others want to believe it because it means that they can control everything that happens in their life. What do you think? Leave a reply and let us know.

Exercise:

Imagine for five minutes that you really can control everything that happens to you by reaping what you sow. What would you sow? How would you live your life? What would you do and think about? Many of the most respected life coaches say that you really do control your life. If you believe in God, and that he has the power to control everything and that he loves you, it becomes easy to believe that you reap what you sow, and reap only what you sow. Why did the Apostle Paul emphasize this point so much? Galatians 6:7 “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows.”

Seeds of greatness

Brad Stanton —  March 15, 2013 — 1 Comment

163917_16 - CopyYou have seeds of greatness inside you that enable you to achieve the goals and dreams in your life. When you plant a seed, you probably water it often, weed it, and put fertilizer on it. The more you cultivate it, the better the harvest will be. In the same way, your seeds of greatness need cultivation to grow and cause you to be extraordinary.

Your goals may be a happier marriage, a promotion at work, to get out of debt, or better health. These are all possible goals and dreams.

Some ways to cultivate your seeds of greatness are to think positive thoughts instead of negative. Set goals and believe that you can achieve them. Be persistent, diligent and enjoy working for the dreams and goals in your life. The more you enjoy working toward the goals, the better you will work. You will end up working smarter instead of harder. Thomas Edison said he never worked a day in his life because he enjoyed it so much it was fun, not work.

Faith, belief, optimism are powerful forces that help you achieve the extraordinary. Most people don’t even think about becoming extraordinary. They don’t believe they can do it, so they don’t even try.

Affirmations are one way many people achieve success. The famous story of the Little Engine that Could is an example. The little engine was faced with a task that seemed impossible, but he repeated “I think I can, I think I can” over and over until he mustered the gumption to pull a heavy load. He accomplished the task and all the other engines cheered.

If you are a Christian, there are plenty of powerful affirmations you can use. One of them is “I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength.” Phil 4:10

The problem is, accomplishing big things takes lots of time, sometimes years. It is easy to get discouraged along the way and give up. But you have never failed until you quit. The old saying really is true: winners never quit and quitters never win.  http://bradstanton.com/2013/03/09/amazing-coincidences/

People that consistently do more than the minimum at work, have a good attitude and keep gaining skills in their area and other areas are the kind of person companies want to promote.

Once a man was asked to do his work and also help another group. He resented this and complained to his boss, and finally talked his boss into letting him avoid the extra work. Later another employee did his own job and also helped the other group. It took extra time to learn how to do their job, but he did it. Then the time came for the boss to retire. The VP in charge was looking for someone who could do both jobs to promote to manager. Guess who he picked? You bet. He picked the man who was willing to go the extra mile.

Many years ago a very rich Jewish man was looking for a wife. He came from the wealthiest, most prominent family in the land. He was getting up in the years and still not married. But he wanted a very special wife. He wanted a woman who did more than the minimum, who went the extra mile.

A servant was sent in a caravan of camels to find a wife. The caravan traveled a long way and finally stopped at a well. A beautiful woman was there, getting water. The social customs of the day mandated that she offer the visitors something to drink. So she did. But she went far beyond the minimum. She looked at the camels, probably about ten of them, and asked if she could water them as well. She knew that a camel could easily drink 30 gallons of water after a long walk, and ten camels could drink 300 gallons. That is a lot of exhausting work, pulling a bucket out of a well over and over, possibly 300 times. But she did it.

The servant brought her back home to marry his master. The woman, Rebecca, married into one of the most famous and important families in the history of the world, her husband was Isaac, son of Abraham, the father of the Jewish race. If she had done the minimum, she would not have been chosen.

Zig Ziglar said that most people quit looking for work as soon as they find the job. I find it  true, most people don’t keep looking for work to do after they finish their tasks. But those that do learn important skills that make them more valuable. People who go the extra mile are rare, but like rare gems, they are extremely precious


Emile Coue was a French psychologist and pharmacist who is famous for introducing the idea of optimistic autosuggestion. In other words you can change your life for the better by believing and saying affirmations. Actually, the idea had been around for at least two thousand years, but Coue proved that faith, belief, confidence (whatever you want to call it) can do miraculous things for a person. He found amazing things happened if people repeat the affirmation “Every day, in every way, I’m getting better and better.” He was much more successful than other psychologists who didn’t use autosuggestion.

I have found that affirmations help a person lose weight. “Every day I’m getting slimmer and slimmer.” or “I weight (target weight). “I don’t enjoy overeating.”

Coue treated many patients in groups and free of charge.

Coue’s family had origins in French nobility, but was not wealthy. Coue was a brilliant student in school and graduated with a degree in pharmacology in 1876.

He wrote a book called Self Mastery Through Conscious Autosuggestion and it is available free here http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/27203

Coue says “Everyone has heard of sleepwalking; everyone knows that a sleepwalker gets up at night without waking, leaves his room after either dressing himself or not, goes downstairs, walks along corridors, and after having executed certain acts or accomplished certain work, returns to his room, goes to bed again, and shows next day the greatest astonishment at finding work finished which he had left unfinished the day before.”

He says that autosuggestion is “… an instrument that we possess at birth, and with which we play unconsciously all our life, as a baby plays with its rattle. It is however a dangerous instrument; it can wound or even kill you if you handle it imprudently and unconsciously. It can on the contrary save your life when you know how to employ it consciously.”

2000 years ago Jesus sometimes told people “Your faith has healed you.” Matthew 9:22, and other places in the Gospels. I used to wonder why he said it was faith that healed them, why didn’t he emphasize that God had healed them? It may sound strange, but I believe the reason Jesus said this is that it was their faith that healed them. Faith like that takes many months or years to develop, and repeating verses, affirmations every day can help develop strong faith. Picturing the answer to prayer in your mind helps a lot too.

Some who have amazing answers to prayer say you only need to pray once, then start thanking God for it. Thank God over and over for it, that builds faith. Begging God for it weakens your faith. Nancy Goodman overcame breast cancer by thanking God over and over many times a day and watching funny movies. The laughter helped her keep her faith and get rid of worry. Negative emotions poison the body, resisting the natural healing that can occur.

Medicine is good, but many take medicine and don’t get healed. Faith and medicine together are really powerful.


English: A grasshopper face to face, on a leaf...

More than three thousand years ago several million people were released from slavery and they traveled to a land that was promised to them. But because they had “grasshopper mentalities” (we are not tough enough or good enough,, we are like grasshoppers compared to them) they didn’t have the confidence to fight for the land and instead wandered aimlessly in the desert, living a very austere life. Abundance and wealth was just beyond their grasp, they could have had it if they had faith enough to fight for it, as was proved forty years later when they fought for and won the land.

Most people believe they are not extraordinary and they will never do anything special with their life. They don’t want to get their hopes up because they have been disappointed so many times in the past. They don’t aim for any goals in life because they are afraid of failure. It has often been said “If you don’t aim for anything, you will probably get it.”

It has been said that if you ask a person in any store why they are there, they will have a good answer, they came to buy something or just came to look around. But if you ask a person why they are here in life and what their goals and dreams are, they will probably not be able to answer the question. Some say 8 out of 10 people don’t really have an answer to that question.

A young man was told by his parents and teachers that he wasn’t very smart. He didn’t do well in school and after leaving high school he applied for a job at a large company near his home. The company always gave IQ tests to everyone who applied and they found that he had an extremely high IQ. They put him in a position that required a lot of thinking and planning. He did extremely well, in fact he invented a couple of new things and was awarded patents. What was the difference? He suddenly had hope and faith that he could do well at his job. He was treated with respect and it caused him to respect himself.

However, it is certainly true that many people who don’t have much talent do incredible things in life. Many of the most successful businessmen, world leaders, inventors, athletes, rock stars, etc. do not have high IQ’s. It is not necessary for success in life, by any definition of success. But it seems that hope is necessary and so is faith, or confidence, whatever you want to call it.

A grasshopper mentality is the death of dreams and goals, and usually prevents people from having big dreams and plans for the future. The way to overcome it is to read/listen to positive instead of negative, every day.
