Persistence - A Lesson From The Chinese Bamboo Tree

Hello friends,

Hope all is well. I wanted to share this video with you. The message reminds us to be persistent in everything we do. It may seem as though our efforts are in vain, but if you continue on despite the obstacles, results will follow.

Seeds, like our desires, take time to grow. Some longer than others. The important thing to remember is that once the seed is planted you have to have faith that if you continue to nurture this seed, it will eventually turn into something beautiful.

Don't get discouraged if you don't see the fruits of your labor right away. The seed that you have planted needs time to take root. Keep watering your seeds. Pursue your desires no matter what the circumstances may be. Circumstance is temporary. Your belief in your dream is what gets you past these difficult times.

Finally one day your desires will be realized. At this moment you will understand that your persistence was worth it. The result will be something that is amazing and unique to you. Find your passion. Uncover your desires. All that we need has been provided for us. Water your seeds of passion and know that the harvest is coming and it will soon be your time to reap its rewards. Many blessings, and have a great day.

“Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan "press on" has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race”

-Calvin Coolidge

“The most essential factor is persistence - the determination never to allow your energy or enthusiasm to be dampened by the discouragement that must inevitably come.”

-James Whitcomb Riley

“Persistence is the twin sister of excellence. One is a matter of quality; the other, a matter of time.”


“Permanence, perseverance and persistence in spite of all obstacles, discouragement, and impossibilities: It is this, that in all things distinguishes the strong soul from the weak”

-Thomas Carlyle

Peace Day: Make Your Pledge To Peace

Hello Friends,

Hope all is well. I just wanted to give you heads up on a very important event that will be taking place on Sunday September 21st. The event is Peace Day. I learned of the event through Peace One Day on myspace.
Hosted by

Peace Day is the dream of Jeremy Gilley. In 1998 he set out to talk to the leaders of the world to establish a day of peace. A day when there would be a complete cease fire between every nation. It is a day on which everyone should be focused on the message of peace.

I am all for a day like this. Hopefully, instead of just a day, we can have a Peace Week, and a Peace Month, which will hopefully lead to peace every day of the year. It's a dream we should be all striving for and helping to promote.

Mother Theresa was approached to join many anti-war rallies and she always refused. She would say, "Point me in the direction of a peace rally and I'll be there." She knew that an anti-war movement would bring about more war.

We have a lot of wars taking place today. The "war on drugs", "the war on poverty", "the war on terrorism". It seems as though we are only losing these wars. The reason is because "war begets war". So by using words such as "war" we are only enforcing the negative feelings associated with war. The more you push against something the more it persist.

A peace rally takes away the negative and only focuses on the positive. With a peace rally, you are not fighting or destroying anything. Rather, you are building and growing the positive consciousness that is in all of us.

I encourage each of you to join the Peace Day efforts. Make an effort to promote peace on September 21st. When we have millions of people focused on peace at the same time, we will send out a great wave a positive energy. Hopefully this energy will be felt by the leaders of the world and they will realize that peace is the only way.

You can visit Peace Peace One Day to make your commitment to the Peace Day movement. I'm number 16,499 under Quoteguy. My pledge to peace is, "I will destroy an enemy by first making him my friend". I chose this because it is something I can do every day and not just on a designated day. The important thing to remember is to strive for peace each and every day.

I would love to hear your commitments to peace. Leave me a comment on how you will promote peace on September 21st and every day there after. This our planet.
our home. We have to preserve it for future generations. Let's help to ensure that peace will be the main focus of every human being living and soon to be born. Many blessings, and thanks for listening.

Turn Your Failures Into Successes

Hello Friends,

Hope all is well. The following are 3 quotes that remind us to persevere no matter the situation. We first have to have a dream. There has to be something that is a motivating factor in our live. Life becomes so much more exciting when we have something to live for. Discover your dream and your passion and you're on your way to fulfilled life.

Your Dreams
Most people never run far enough on their first wind to find out they've got a second. Give your dreams all you've got and you'll be amazed at the energy that comes out of you. William James

Once you decide what your passion or dream is you then have to take the necessary steps to achieve this goal. This can be the scary part. Getting started. If you examine the lives of successful people, you will find that they failed many times before they finally "made it". No one is an instant success. In show business we often hear about the "over night sensation". The fact is that person probably worked for years before being discovered. Actors and musicians perform for years without recognition before they hit the big time. The important thing is that they believe in their dream despite what anyone else may say. This is crucial factor to realizing your dream.

If you have made mistakes, even serious ones, there is always another chance for you. What we call failure is not the falling down, but the staying down. Mary Pickford photo by Daylight

Once you get started you will inevitably make mistakes. But that's OK. Mistakes are a part of growing. Breaking down the barriers is what makes us tougher for what may lay ahead of us. Understand that mistakes will be made, but that these mistakes do not have to be the end of your dream. It is merely a sign that there is a better way.

Failure into Success
Even at the worst there is a way out, a hidden secret that can turn failure into success and despair into happiness. No situation is so dark that there is not a ray of light. Norman Vincent Peale

Learn how to turn your failures into successes. The process of achieving the goal is the most important part of the journey. It is during this process that we evolve into the great person we envisioned our self to be. This is when we take our lumps and learn to be strong and focused despite the many obstacles.

The Universe always knows the best way for you to receive your blessings. It is our job to come into alignment with what the Universe has for us. Everything that we need is already provided for us. Take the time to focus on what you want, completely, and all your dreams will be given to you.

Have a great day. It's yours to create. Many blessings, and thanks for listening.
