Remember What Matters 


Do a values sort. Write down your highest 10-15 values. Then holding up pairs, keep choosing which one of the two you hold as highest value. Keep sorting through all of them compared to the one you hold until you find the first , second and third most important etc. The way it will finally conclude is recognizing that One holds most of the others within it. Hold true to this value with everything you choose in life and you will stay on path and in integrity, confident and at peace.

Be sure you seek what you value.
Be sure you find what you value.
Be sure you value what you value.
Be sure you enjoy what you value.

When you give attention and energy, negative or positive, to what you don’t value, you give it Power.
So turn off negative TV.
Turn away from negative conversations.
Stop participating in complaining and criticizing.

Take time to read inspirational material.
Give thanks for the Good in your life.
Remember to appreciate those who Love you.
Take care of what really is important.

Drama may attract us.
Disaster may concern us.
Distractions may mislead us.
Giving attention where we are taken off course only delays our fulfillment and success.

So focus on the Good.
Give credit to the deserving.
Honor those who are honorable.
Appreciate what makes the world better.

All along the way we are creating the life we want to have by the choices we make.
It is our decision about how to spend our money, where to give our time and the company we keep.
It is these decisions that determine our life experience-safe, fun and easy or dramatic, upsetting and hard.
Choose wisely and well and you will learn what works well for you and what to eliminate.

The life you have is the life you can learn what might be better to choose.
Bless your conscious choices.

Two Wolves

One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people.
He said, "My son, the battle is between two "wolves" inside us all.

One is Evil. It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.

The other is Good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith."

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather: "Which wolf wins?"

The old Cherokee simply replied, "The one you feed."
