Begin Your Day With A Clean Slate-Be Open To New Ideas

Good morning everyone,

As I watch the morning news here in Las Vegas, Nevada-my new home I am still daily adjusting to the neighborhoods and people and how radically different it is here.
Today I hope you begin it with new and fresh ideas. Give yourself and hour in the morning where you regroup, reassess the goals you have in your life.

image

If you don’t have any goals, it is about time you create some!

image

To live you life without anything to aspire to and without knowing what your true talents are for you to foster is like not knowing yourself.

The closer you are to knowing every talent you possess and what you are best at, as well as what you love most-the closer you will arrive at living a life more fulfilling than you ever believed possible.

Don’t let others sway your decisions, because you will be living your life for yourself in the end.

After all of the things you do for others, after all the selfless actions you do for your kids, your spouse and the obligatory things you do in your daily work, you are left with yourself and that is it.

You are going to be on this earth hopefully for another 20 years and why not enjoy every minute of being on earth?

Give yourself time in the morning to hear the birds chirp, drink coffee or tea or other relaxing beverage, and just “be”. Don’t have any noise on except the ambient sounds of the world waking up in your city in your state in your country.

image

Listen in relative silence and you will be amazed what kinds of things this reveals.
It is through silence and the sounds of nature you can hear angels sing in your heart.

image

May you have a blessed day and meet people who are kind, caring and good and interested in the things you are.

To Reach Port You Must Not Stay Anchored or Drift-but SAIL! Rick Wagoner & Paulette L Motzko

My good friend Rick Wagoner does something wonderful everyday, throughout the day. He finds some of the best and most positive poignant quotes and shares them with the world on Twitter on @BigDreamFuel.

This post is a tester to see if I could share his tweet that I normally retweet on Twitter with my over 1,400 readers and the over 50 countries that tune in each month.

Rick and I like to think with each post we write, we are putting good out in the world and changing people’s thoughts for the better.
When you change someone’s thoughts, you influence their actions for the better.
When you change the actions someone makes, you have just changed their life.

When you change enough lives you have changed the world by your actions.

God bless everyone reading this, and may this be the first in a series of light, empowerment and knowledge shared by Rick Wagoner and I, Paulette Le Pore Motzko.

Have a blessed and productive day.

Make at least one new friend today by finding the saddest and most alone person you can find and talking to them. You will never believe how valuable your words of “how are you” are to them.

If Life Were a Movie I Will Tell You Do It Right The First Time Because There are No Retakes & You Can’t Edit the Video!

Sometimes when I am talking to people from a different country than the USA, I will find myself making a point in a new way I think they will understand. That happened this evening here sitting at Target in the Starbucks within.

I was talking to Juan from Mexico who was with his dad an brother. That is one of the most extraordinary things about Las Vegas, NV. The city attracts people from all over the world every day. It is like a really hot Disneyland but here anything can happen, and it isn’t G rated!

image

Go into a Starbucks in Las Vegas, NV and if you work as an independent contractor, freelance writer, photographer; the odds of meeting international business people are very high. It is one of my favorite places to go, and yes, I have a gold card with my name engraved on it. For all the money I have spent there and time I have spent doing computer work, networking or reading or just relaxing, I feel like I should own Starbucks stock!

image
Back to the topic of living and life…

Life doesn’t give you a chance to “rewind the tape” and edit and say “no, that’s not what I wanted to do” or “I should have done that.”

The grand old tape keeps recording our actions every day in the anals of time with God looking down and helping those who are the most kind whose hearts are the most pure.

Every day ask yourself, what is the title of my movie, if you were to name your life.

Think about it carefully.

image

Now figure out what you need to do NOW (remembering the show ain’t over!), so the show can end up with the ending you desire.

image

image

God bless all who read this and may you find profitable work that more than meets your needs, that you love.

Kiss and hug those you love who are dearest and nearest to you too.

Inspired by this photograph by Mena Habeeb entitled “Bridge To The Light”

“Bridge to The Light”

Title by Mena Habeeb

Poem by Paulette Le Pore Motzko

Inspired by the quote from the great Helen Keller: “When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us.”- Helen Keller

*****

Sometimes we are Looking on the Horizon for Greater Times to Come.

Seeing the sun peeking at us in a distance and the door to promise just opening with the key in your grasp.

If you only focus on the open door rather than one that has already closed upon you, your eyes will see the new opportunities awaiting you.

Hope is Fueling You with God as your Divine Guide

Determination keeps you grounded

Each day coming closer to the “other side of the bridge”…

Life will keep it’s Promise to you If You Keep Your Promise to It-by Finishing Everything You Start

 Goals are Achieved …with new goals taking the place of the old ones now achieved.

Life’s Cycle Blooms like a Rose and You Are The Master Gardener

The Soil Is Your Passion and What You Are Good At-The DNA of Your Being…

Your Work & Dedication

There are no bad jobs, as every job title is needed and deserves dignity and respect.

Life is a never ending process of Loving, Losing, Learning, Believing, Judging, Becoming & Appreciating.

“: What goes around Comes Around” and “The Good You Give Will Come Back a Thousand fold-when you least expect it will.

Through Daily Diligence with the Ultimate End always In Your Mind

You will Fool the Non-Believers when You Show

Life has no winners in because Life is not a game with players

Life is an eco-system with many people equipped with hearts, souls, loves, values and dreams…that call earth their home.

People share more in common than you know.

Understanding Paves our Bridge to Peace.

We are all given different abilities, strengths and blessings and some curses we must bear with grace

You will never know the crosses your neighbor silently secretly bears. Crosses aren’t worn  on one’s sleeve but in the deepest regions of one’s soul. I have mine and you have yours.

At times you might grow weary and feel as though you are struggling

But Look at Where You Were a year ago and How Far You Have Come…

Sometimes life throws us curve balls we think we didn’t earn…

But you will move past them and surpass your competitors in spite of it all and win-because Your Strength Made You Resilient

Life isn’t a contest but an ever-changing, exciting journey

Where Sometimes Your Destination is Better than You Ever Imaged.

Until Then…

By Paulette Le Pore Motzko

 

image

There will be so many bridges to cross in my life time but I will keep walking up with strength and courage until I make the other side.

 There will be so many goals to achieve until the vision in my mind matches the vision in life I live.

Every day I will mentor others to make their path easier because I have already learned how to make their journey easier.

There will be knowledge to learn hiding in every opportunity and experience I live, as long as my eyes can see “outside the box” to recognize one.

I see stories in every event, interviews in every extraordinary person, travel journals in scenic places and I will look at the world through the eyes of a Nikon camera.

Photographs I take become a storyboard for something greater than the photo itself and for Pictorials and advertisements for successful companies.

I want to never lose the wonder and magic living and of being receptive to sounds and music of life.

In every person I meet there are gifts of wisdom, talents shared, books read to take note of, lessons learned and bonds of souls and minds waiting.

Everyone is a stranger until you say the magic word “hello” then that is the open door to become something more.

If you told me when I read the cook books of my mother’s and made dishes of my father’s I would one day create two cooking web sites and every dish I created would be seen, shared and enjoyed by people all over the world-I wouldn’t have believed you-but I did and they are.

A year ago needed a platform so I could write about topics that mattered to me such as civil rights, disabled people, positivity, creativity, spirituality, the homelessness epidemic, the misuse of the budget in America by our leaders, and how we all can make a difference in our communities, in our cities, in our schools and in our homes-and how we are all connected on the planet earth, no matter what race, color or creed-and if you had told me it would be called “Totally Inspired Mind: Where Positive Minds Congregate”-but it is and between 20 to 70 countries in a month believe what I write is worth reading and the stories and photos I choose have great merit.

When you discover your talents and devote enough self-introspection to reveal your genuine passions and things that make you “tick” like a clock or that make your soul smile-you have the magic ticket to how to never “work” another day in your life and instead, earn money doing what you love.

My credo is to maximize each talent and learn as much as possible about it and immerse your mind like a tea bag in steeping to make a pot of tea. Associate with only the best people who have the highest moral standards and philosophies.

Accentuate the positive while ignoring the negative and destructive and abusive and you will paint your life just like Vincent Van Gogh painted his famous sunflowers in French Impressionistic style.

When you take the time to “invest in yourself” and in truly being your best friend, the world will play a symphony and you will be in-sync and living will feel natural.

There will never be a perfect time to do what you have longed to do, so do it!

You are the only one you need persmission from to follow your dreams and persue what you have always wanted.

image

With persistence and determination your present will keep giving “presents” of joy, growth, breadth and understanding, knowledge, and so many more small and large gifts when you expand your view of what you know to something greater than yourself.

And until my goals are achieved I will do my best, strive for the best, associate with the best, not give up, not back down and enjoy my life and what I have and enjoy my friends and family-

Until Then.

What do you love doing more than anything else that you have a special talent for?

This is where I ask you my readers, all 511 of you on Totally Inspired Mind: Where Positive Minds Congregate….a telling question.

When you do what you love you will always be successful at it.

What do you love doing more than anything on earth? How do you know what things are? Tell tale signs are the time flies so quickly, you have no idea where the time goes!

Not acceptable answers are video or computer games or watching the tube which are passive passtimes usually. But I am talking about things that involve the world, people and things in reality.

When I first posted this I had 500 followers now there are 11 more and they keep growing. I hope that out of the dozen people who loved this post, you will go one step further and write an answer to this.

What are your special talents and abilities?

Look at your answers and look for ways to earn money, help others etc with what God gave you.

There is no right or wrong answers here, only YOUR ANSWER that illustrates your unique self.

image

You can have passion for more than one thing in life. The trick is to take stock of all your innate abilities first, then figure out ways you could earn a living doing just that.

Look How Far You’ve Come…

image

So often we are so busy trying to achieve major goals in our life that we forget to look and see just how far we have come.

What goal have you been working on?

How did you mark your progress on that goal?

Did you reward yourself on smaller time markers as you stay on track, working to achieve what you set out to do?

It could be a college degree, losing weight or reading a book and doing the exercises in the book.

Affirmation of The Day: Peace Among Chaos, Time Outs, & Clear Thinking

Always remember if you were treated with indifference, or are a victim of verbal abuse that all people in the world are not that way. The most difficult thing to do is to treat people with kindness and respect, knowing they are not guilty of anything but simply being. Find a center deep inside you that becomes the wells spring from which everything that is good in you, kind in you draws from.

Two wrongs don’t make a right and just because you around people who are abusive, racists, show hatred or even stupid..RISE ABOVE THEM AND SHOW CLASS, INTELLIGENCE and INTEGRITY. Later you will be glad you did.

If you are upset, go somewhere where you find peace and comfort and come back when you have calmed down and cooled off and know you are in a better state of mind.

Wherever it is where you can go, think more clearly. Even if you need to stay for a few hours, try and do so. What you will find, from my personal experience, is you will feel refreshed and feel better about making any important decision(s) you need to.

The world can go crazy all around you, and in many respects mine is now, but it doesn’t mean you have to go crazy with it.

Create a list of the things that bother you most and then write the solutions to them.

Stay centered on your solutions every day.

Give yourself credit for how far you have come each day.

Man’s Real Life is Happy, Chiefly Because He is Ever Expecting That it Soon Will Be

“Man’s real life is happy, chiefly because he is ever expecting that it soon will be so.” – Edgar Allan Poe

image

My mother Ramona use to tell me when I was a small child
“Whatever you believe you can do you will do. Envision yourself successful and you will be. Work as hard as you possibly can on every task you do, and you will be successful at it, whatever it may be.” Mom was right and I think of her many times every day as I am living proof that what she told me was fact. Shoot to be the top in everything you do, and try to be the best at it. Any job that is worth doing, is worth doing well.”

As Edgar Allen Poe said in his words about Man being happy largely due to him believing he will be, he was right.

Whether you are a man, woman or child, your attutude and the words you tell yourself outloud or subconsciously can bring you up so you reach the stars in the sky, or they can drop you in a depressing revene it will take some work & determination to get out of.

Choose your friends carefully and avoid negative, hurtful “family” members that only bring you down.

Remember this when evaluating who to keep in your life and who to avoid:

Family is who loves you, cares about your welfare, includes you, remembers you, worries about you and would miss you if you weren’t there.
