Can We Talk?

Today, I thought I would share a little bit of me and what I am doing. I have boxes galore filled with papers and things I will probably never use again. However, I found a calendar journal I purchased for 1995, There should also be one for 1994, but I guess it is in another box.

I mention the journal because it has some great quotes and suggestions for goal setting and staying motivated. I thought I would share some here in between the articles I post. I might even post twice a day at other times.

I was so excited about finding the journal I decided to go on the internet to look up Dr. Howard Jans, so I could purchase a more updated journal. I couldn’t find anything that was current for him. I checked with Amazon because they have everything. However, the only thing they had was a pamphlet he wrote in 1980.

It arrived yesterday, and like his Success Journals, he has written some beautiful words of wisdom. I want to share them with you starting today. It is an itty bitty book that looks more like a pamphlet. Most of the positive thoughts he wrote come from the many Success Journals he wrote over the years. I hope you enjoy them as much as I have.

The collection of positive thoughts he compiled in a book he called Power in Thought. He has written on for each letter of the alphabet, and that is how I will present them to you.

          ACTION speaks louder than words.

          Every ADVERSITY has the seed of a more significant benefit.

          ACTION will conquer fear.

I thought about this, and I realized that when I feared doing something, the only thing that took the fear away was taking action. The same holds for the times when I gave in to the fear. I regrated and fretted over my failure to follow through. Have you missed out on some great opportunities because you were afraid of failing and turned away from a chance at something great that you had reason to regret later?

When presented with a chance or opportunity, you fear, remember the alternative, and take action. Then reward yourself for your courage. Tomorrow, I will share his thoughts on the letter “B.” Until then, please stay safe, and keep the faith.
