Before you decide, review your values.”
We all have wants, needs and desires. These feelings indicate what we value most. But, sometimes, wants, needs and desires come into conflict, and we must decide where to invest our time and attention.
No one can do everything at once. So, when a conflict arises, take the time to think about your long-term values before your make a decision about where to focus your energy.
Remember, when you focus on one thing, you often must let go of another (at least for the time being). Ultimately, you must go with the decision that supports your highest values, and will make you happiest, both now and in the future.
But, don’t delay. Fulfillment and joy await you, after a decision is made.

If you want to get yourself to do it, get yourself to love
Doing it. Whatever you love to do, you’re always eager to
But how do you find the way to love doing something that may
Not seem so lovely? Make yourself fully aware of the reasons
Why you do it.
Even with the most unpleasant job, there’s a positive reason
Somewhere within you why you have chosen to do it.
Understand and appreciate that reason, and you’ll have
Something to genuinely love about the job.
In some way, everything you do is connected to what you
Greatly value. Otherwise, you simply would not do it.
Instead of resenting what you must do, rejoice about what
You can do to make a meaningful difference. Instead of being
Ashamed of yourself for avoiding the task, be delighted with
Yourself for getting out in front of it and getting it done.
If you do what you love, you’ll soon become successful. When
You truly love what you do, success is already yours.
Let life arrive
Open yourself to all that is here and now. Open yourself to the sounds, the textures, the sights, the tastes, the aromas and the feelings as they arrive in your awareness.
Let life arrive, and let yourself marvel at the wonder and abundance of it all. Experience for yourself, free from all doubt, how anything is possible.
All that you desire is somewhere within all you already have. And now you have the fortuitous opportunity of working steadfastly to fully express it.
Open yourself to life’s best possibilities as they ride in on waves of now. What life continually brings you is always more than enough, when you choose to make loving use of it.
Let go of the illusion that you can win by fighting. Let your highest dreams be nourished by each and every thing that comes your way.
Let life arrive in all its richness. And as it flows through your awareness and your purpose, delight in adding your own unique value.
