Following leaders

December 28, 2010

Today we are built upon what ever it is we follow. being careful to do the right thing builds strong character. John Wooden is an outstanding example of this, as he writes this poem–

A careful man I must always be;
A little fellow follows me.
I know I dare
not go astray
For fear he’ll go the self-same way.

I cannot once escape his eyes,
Whate’er he sees me do, he tries.
Like me he says he’s going to be;
This little chap who follows me.

He thinks that I am good and fine,
Believes in every word of mine.
The base in me he must not see;
This little chap who follows me.

I must be careful as I go
Through summer’s sun and winter’s snow,
Because I am building for the years to be;
This little chap who follows me.

Be a person of value who  knows, maybe, you will start someone to greatness.

Inspirational life
Every day the sun comes up we are more inspired to live an inspirational life. Cloudy rainy days seem to go the other direction. Light of life. What do we learn from a light day dark day combination as we go through life? Learning thinking is all about improving on life as we know it. Sayings, Quotes, and thinking creative is what we need. Simple happenings like a cloudy day or a sunny day have a definite effect on how we decide, so why don’t we add to it?. Perception is what gets us there or holds us back. We do not have control over sunny or dark days, but we can have control over our perception.
Recognition contribution, is quite a self explained statement in itself. Our sub conscience mind is constantly making decisions for us all the day through. Although simple things like cloudy and sunny can affect our decisions, that doesn’t mean we won’t take a walk on a cloudy day. Depending on our past, whether we had a great turkey dinner one year, or we were shipwrecked the next, we had a good long relationship, or a bad short one. Each and every experience with emotion has great influence on our decision making. The point is that decision making is determined by what we have programmed into our sub conscience mind. Thus goes the saying of garbage in garbage out.

Whether a child had a father that took his family down to the ice cream shop for a Sunday or not, can obviously affect culture and it surroundings. the child that didn’t go to the ice cream shop is just a very small example of experiences we have in life. Crashes, Jobs, thefts, broken bones, and feelings, all very negative contributions to our life. Negative thoughts is a disease of darkness within us, with many in denial of self controlled destiny. How are you responding to what is going on around you? Is rain a torturing misery or a soothing peace, within the emotion your feeling? Where is your trail leading you? What are your non verbals that are affecting others?( smile, expression, compassion for others) I believe Life is all about the inbetweens. How we feel inbetweeen our surroundings? Is ice freezing the locks in your life, or do you have warm waters of influence?

The biggest problem is that we didn’t have enough positive things happen next to that negative contribution to over come them. Many people out there (WHO?) are not adding to their life, period. They just take life as it comes, day after day. I’m sure you have heard this one. Go to work come home eat supper watch TV go to bed lifestyle, who’s fault is that?

Now that we are where we are, How do we over come those limiting thoughts that are holding us back? We need to seek out that positive and add it to our lives.

I believe in repetitive sayings and quotes, because they have changed my life living attitude , and I truly believe they can change yours. Some people listen and change, others don’t and stay the same, stay the same, stay the same. Get the point? A woodpecker has a strong deliberate action to accomplish his task to get bugs for food. You need one also. Here are three quotes I believe to be true, that were a big part to helping me overcome limiting thinking, and gave me an awesome enjoyable attitude and peace of mind. Repeat them at least every morning. or stay the same , stay the same. its your choice. work at it with emotion.

1-Why striving to live affirmatively, looking for the good in life and glorifying it, I bring glory.

2- As I said all last week, I want you to PROMISE to not get distracted with life’s incessant problems, fears and doubts… but rather, remain focused on the beauty of your dreams. That is the source of tremendous personal power.

3- Realizing that the good feeling of getting it done is much better than the dread of not doing or not getting it done.

Blessings to you- Brian Stiehl

Serenity chapter ( from as a man thinketh)
Calmness of mind is one of the beautiful jewels of wisdom. It is the result of long and patient
effort in self control. Its presence is an indication of ripened experience, and of a more than
ordinary knowledge of the laws and operations of thought. A man becomes calm in the
measure that he understands himself as as thought- evolved being, for such knowledge
necessitates the understanding of others as the result of thought. As he develops a right
understanding, and sees more and more clearly the internal relations of things by the action of
cause and effect, he ceases to fuss and fume and worry and grieve, and remains poised,
steadfast, serene.
The calm man, having learned how to govern himself knows how to adapt himself to others;
and they in turn, reverence his spiritual strength, and feel that they can learn of him and rely
upon him. The more tranquil a man becomes, the greater is his success, his influence, his
power for good. Even the ordinary trader will find his business prosperity increase as he
develops a greater self, a control and equanimity, for people will always prefer to deal with a
man whose demeanor is strongly equable.
The strong calm man is always loved and revered . He is like a shade-giving tree in a thirsty
land, or a sheltering rock in a storm. Who does not love a tranquil heart, a sweet-tempered,
balanced life? It does not matter whether it rains or shines, or what changes come to those
possessing these blessings, for they are always sweet, serene, and calm. “that exquisite poise of
character which we call serenity is the last lesson culture; it is the flowering of life, the fruitage
of the soul. It is precious as wisdom more to be desired than gold- yea, than even fine gold.
How insignificant mere money-seeking looks in comparison with a serene life- life that dwells
in the ocean of Truth beneath the wave, beyond the reach of tempest, into Eternal Calm!
“How many people we know who sour their lives, who ruin all that is sweet and beautiful by
explosive tempers, who destroy their poise of character, and make bad blood! I t is a question
whether the great majority of people do not ruin their lives and mar their happiness by lack of
self control. How few people we meet in life who are well balanced, who have that exquisite
poise which is characteristic of the finished character!”
Yes, humanity surges with uncontrolled passion, is tumultuous with ungoverned grief, is
blown about by anxiety and doubt only the wise man, only he whose thoughts are controlled
and purified, makes the winds and the storms of the soul obey him.
Tempest-tossed souls, wherever he may be, under what -ever conditions ye may live, know
his – in the ocean of life the isles of blessedness are smiling, and sunny shore of your ideal
awaits your coming keep your hand firmly upon the helm of thought. In the bark of your soul
reclines the commanding Master; He does but sleep; wake Him. self-control is strength; Right
Thought is mastery; Calmness is power
Say unto your heart, Peace, Be still!”
This writing from as a man thinketh is a basis upon many things I intend to write about Hope
you enjoy my writings in the near future.
