A Dish of Ice Cream

In the days when an ice cream sundae cost much less, a 10 year old boy entered a hotel coffee shop and sat at a table. A waitress put a glass of water in front of him. “How much is an ice cream sundae?”

“50 cents,” replied the waitress.

The little boy pulled his hand out of his pocket and studied a number of coins in it.

“How much is a dish of plain ice cream?” he inquired. Some people were now waiting for a table and the waitress was a bit impatient. “35 cents,” she said brusquely.

The little boy again counted the coins. “I’ll have the plain ice cream,” he said.

The waitress brought the ice cream, put the bill on the table and walked away. The boy finished the ice cream, paid the cashier and departed.

When the waitress came back, she began wiping down the table and then swallowed hard at what she saw.

There, placed neatly beside the empty dish, were 15 cents – her tip.

The quality of your inner life drives the quality of your entire life

The kind of person you portray to world is exactly who you are inside. If the world is seeing you wrongly, it means your inner world is wired wrongly.

In other words, the quality of your inner life drives the quality of entire life. If you are poor internally, you won’t look rich or wealthy externally.

Therefore, personal development or self growth should be at the core of any human being life’s goals. To be courageous, you must build it from the inside.

To be loyal and honest, you must build that quality from within. To be the best sibling, you must build it from within.

Look, you will not have anything you have not become. In other words, the Secret to having success is becoming a success. Becoming is internal while having is external. Pursue personal development starting today.

List the things you want to have, describe the person you must become to have those items, and commit to learning and mastering the required traits.

Always remember, your entire life is a reflection of who you are from the inside.

Speak what you know to be true

Speak what you know to be true about you all the time. I mean confess what you want to see happen to you and who God says you are. For example, the bible say let the poor say I am rich and the weak say I am strong. Physically you may not be rich but the truth is that you were born rich and soon that will manifest. Your job is to speak what will manifest for the truth. My dear, your words shape your world. If you always say negative things about, you will forever manifest those negative things. So why not do otherwise. Look, you have nothing to lose. Start saying what is true about you to you. Speak life. Confess goodness. Imagine greatness. Act accordingly with courage and confidence.

Stress can shut down your power if you let it.

Do not allow people, bills, or pressures on the job to consume your focus, energy and joy for life. Uncontrolled stress can cause you to gain weight; change your personality and create problems in your relationships; turn your hair gray overnight; make you sick, and make it difficult for you to get out of bed.

Take time to become aware of the major stressors in your life and the ways you are dealing with them. Recognize the price you are paying for not taking deliberate action with regard to your spiritual, social, emotional and physical well-being. In the face of what may appear to be crippling circumstances, choose to live every part of your life. Decide to be happy, actively engaged and live from the inside out. Create centered and grounding moments in your own life as part of your spiritual life.

Use what works – exercise, meditation, meaningful connections with others. Volunteer your time to make a difference in the lives of others. You are more powerful than you are currently living. Harness your power to live above the stress in your life.

More smiling, less worrying. More compassion, less judgment. More blessed, less stressed. More love, and less hate. If you want to conquer the anxiety of life, live in the moment, live in the breath. What that means, is that. In times of stress, the best thing we can do for each other is to listen with our ears, our hearts and to be assured that our questions are just as important as our answers. Nevertheless, times of stress and difficulty are seasons of opportunity when the seeds of progress are sown. Don’t forget that…
