Motivational Speeches Can Change Lives

by izqrdo

Do you ever remembering hearing a speech that instead of putting you to sleep, it motivated you to take some kind of action that resulted in a shift in your destiny? Motivational speeches have this power. Too often people will give up on their dreams due to failing too many times to obtain them. After a while, their belief in themselves will wither away and lie dormant until something can wake it back up. These speeches have the power to do just that, awaken those rusty beliefs.

Whenever we pursue a goal, we do it because somewhere inside of us, we believe that we can do it. That belief normally comes from either seeing someone else obtain the same or similar outcome, from our past successes in achieving a goal, or simply from someone else who we have trust in believing in us. On your path to any goal, you will be faced with many challenges and setbacks. It’s nothing personal, that’s just the way it is and it’s also the reason why most people will never experience the life that they truly want. These temporary failures will cause most people to stay down after being knocked to the ground a few times. Their belief in their ability to obtain the goal gets weaker each time they are met with defeat.

There are many things that can cause your beliefs to skyrocket again and one of those things are motivational speeches. The reason for this is because the speaker will often use stories that will allow you to realize that all successful people go through many failures before they obtain their goals. Too often we will think that somehow, our challenges are unique and there’s no way to turn things around. Sorry to say but chances are, whatever obstacles you are going through, plenty of people have gone through the same thing and have ended up thriving. Choosing to use a setback to stop pursuing your goals is merely an excuse to give yourself an easy way out in order to avoid more disappointments.

These stories that motivational speakers often times share are stories of people who stood up and kept going after their dreams despite the dozens of failures they may have faced. When you hear these types of speeches, what often happens is that you start to realize that those who are successful are no different from you. They too have had times when they felt like quitting and had every right to, but instead, they chose to keep going. That’s what winners do. The next time your hear a motivational speech that strengthens your beliefs, do the speaker a favor and use it to stand back up, dust yourself off, and continue pursuing your dreams.

365 Days Project, Day 13

Image by Ovais_92
The lady driving her Cadillac sighs; her husband wanted a divorce, because she had been unfaithful to him. She knew he’d probably have some paperwork drawn up by the lawyer by the time she got home, and it would mean losing the car, the house, the cabin near the river, and all the social events she usually went to. She’s trying to think of a way out, but she’s trapped, because she did something wrong-not once, but twice-and there was no going back now. If she stopped to think about it, though, she probably would have done it again, given the chance. Maybe she could move in with him.. If she told him she was pregnant..
The senior citizen in the red Chevrolet smiles when he remembers it’s almost his eightieth birthday. His sons were lawyers and bankers, so they took care of him and his wife. They had raised them right, and it made him feel like there was nothing better they could have done in their lifetime. He was determined to enjoy his days until they ended, so he was taking his wife on a cruise to France.
The girl in the green Toyota Corolla texts her friend quickly. She’s on her way home after school ended at 4pm; she’s looking forward to changing into her pajamas and going back to sleep. She’s usually on her iPhone all day, either texting, playing a game, or on Facebook. Her phone vibrates again, and she decides to ignore it when she sees who the text was from. A friend of hers liked her, and knew that she wasn’t interested in a relationship, but he had told her he would wait for her. She wanted to let him down easy, but she rarely ever thought of him, so she hadn’t asked her girlfriends what they thought she should do.
The boy in the silver Toyota Corolla sings along with the music, strumming an imaginary guitar with one hand.

‘Cause if one day you wake up and find that you’re missing me,
And your heart starts to wonder where on this earth I could be,
Thinking maybe you’ll come back here to the place that we’d meet,
And you’ll see me waiting for you on the corner of the street’

It was his day off, so he had gone to buy a new string for his guitar, and he was a few minutes away from home. He had work the next day, but it wasn’t work for him, because he worked in the best place he could-a radio station-so it was doing what he loved, all day long.
Everyone is waiting for the green arrow. They’re all looking at the same image. But their minds are focused on something else altogether. A different perspective from each angle.

Fogos em Montreal / Fireworks at Montreal

Image by Marcio Cabral de Moura
Festival Internacional de Fogos de Montreal

L’International des Feux Loto-Québec, also known as the Montreal Fireworks Festival, is a major international fireworks competition. (It was formerly known as Le Mondial SAQ, and l’International Benson & Hedges.) It has been held yearly in La Ronde over the Dolphins lake, since 1985, and is named after its main sponsor, Loto-Québec. The display is hailed as the best and largest fireworks festival in the world. It hosts an estimated 3 million each year, with approximately 6,000 fireworks set off during each show.

Each summer, eight or nine pyrotechnical companies from different countries present a 30-minute long pyromusical show, competing for the Gold, Silver and Bronze Jupiters or trophies.

For the 20th anniversary in 2004, eight of the previous top competitors (all of whom had won the Gold Jupiter) were invited to fight for the unique Platinum Jupiter in June and July 2004, which was won in the end by the German company WECO.

The competition takes the form of a series of biweekly fireworks shows usually beginning in late June and ending in late July. The fireworks are synchronized to music which is also broadcast over a provincial radio station (RockDétente in 2005, Rythme FM 2006-onwards). Spectators can purchase tickets to have reserved seats in La Ronde: they can buy them on site, on-line or through the Admission group to obtain an exceptional view of the lower altitude display and the whole perspective. However, tens of thousands to hundreds of thousands of people watch the fireworks for free from nearby locations.

Spiritual Living in Reality Today

by dmott9

When we look out into the world it is rather apparent that there is great sorrow and suffering throughout every country and every nation. No one is immune to the suffering of this life. The old and young are caught up in this misery of life.  The poor and the rich alike are caught in this same darkness and gloom. Both men and women of every race are in the hands of sorrow. We are suffering from the mental agony of misery and the psychological pain of loneliness that plagues nearly every human being on this earth. 
Without knowing ourselves we remain in sorrow and continue to live in our own delusions of hope for the future. If we belong to a particular religion or belief then we congregate and hide our sorrow among each other. Through such pretense, sorrow remains. We are forever hoping we will miraculously change tomorrow without transforming our lives today. If we plant the seeds of sorrow in our everyday lives, how can we expect compassion to spring forth within us tomorrow? Through confusion we expect wisdom to manifest in our existence while we continue doing the same old things as before. 
So we must ask ourselves the deepest questions without the intention of getting the same old answers. Why do we not face the facts of our life of sorrow, here and now? The not facing our state of being in sorrow is what keeps us continuously living in such loneliness and despair. We fail to look and see the actualities of our lives and continue down the same paths that leads nowhere. Because it has been tried does not mean it is true. All the various world religions have made us promises of a better tomorrow if we adhere to their doctrines. Promises they themselves have not fulfilled. We are expected to continue on such paths which lead nowhere. In light of the fact none of their answers have produced any lasting change in the heart of man. We are still suffering and we are still filled with sadness, misery and disharmony. All the religious and political leaders have failed to deliver on their promises. Why is it, we do not hold such ignorance accountable? We must seek the truth within ourselves. In truth, we are all responsible for this life of discontent.
The religions throughout the world from Christianity in the west and Islam in the east, have propounded their solutions for many centuries to no effect. We are still trapped in sorrow with no clear way out. And if you are at all a serious human being, you will see their solutions to our problems are nowhere to be found. 
The burning fires of sorrow are within us and all around us. The face of sorrow continues to be a major problem throughout the whole of humanity. The unhappiness produced by ignorance and fear continues to haunt us day and night. All the prevailing sorrow continues to escalate and torment us from within our consciousness. The darkness of suffering expresses itself outwardly into the world. This problem of sorrow must be given deep thought. And if we are at all serious, we must go beyond thought and its waywardness. We claim we see the outcome of its ailments but fail to act and respond, efficiently. We try in various ways to cure our problems while in actuality we are only treating the symptoms through escape.  The fact of sorrow we never face. This causes our problems to perpetuate and corrode our daily lives.
Through tradition we are so attached to our ideals and beliefs that prevents us from seeing. We look but we do not see. Never realizing that in the power of seeing there is freedom. Instead we merely look in partiality which leaves us in obscurity. In effect, we never discover the truth of anything. Only to find ourselves moving from one illusion into another. Not only in the religious world but in the world of politics as well. We support one political campaign that promise hope and change only to lead us in a different scheme of corruption all the same. 
So in the darkness of sorrow we move from one state into another god-forsaken place. Psychologically, we travel from one prison into another that has a little more space, a little more provisions and promises to pacify us for the time being. The powers that be lay out a plan for us to follow in the idea that it will bring us to a utopia on earth or a dream land in the heavens. They all proclaim someday we will find a better way to live and treat each other. But, time and time again this same routine of thought and reason has failed all of mankind. The fact is we are still suffering, exponentially. 
Psychologically, as human beings we are never free. Without the realization and clarity of intelligence, there is no understanding which breeds freedom. In freedom there is no choice. We choose because we do not see. Without seeing clearly, we repeat the same old things that have not brought about any fundamental change. 
In spirituality, seeing is complete action devoid of choice, thought and its traditions. The power of seeing is the glory within that brings light to all our emotional and psychological problems. When at once we are empty of ourselves then we can be fulfilled and unchained by sorrow. The moment we end all conscious effort and action born of thought, the creative power of love enters and illumines our whole being. This illumination is love which burns away all sorrow and all suffering. And in the radiance of this love, there is exquisite beauty in which words can not touch or describe. This joyous love transcends the consciousness of mind and the idea of ego. 
In the absence and emptiness of all your sorrow, this glorious love comes unsought. There is no means of willing this love into being. No tricks, no prayer or any form of conjuring can call this into existence. It is the totality of all life. Being whole, it has the power to heal all our problems, holistically. 
When this spiritual love comes, there is no self-centered ego within you to take hold of it. It is incorruptible. It comes when you are vacant. It comes when you are not conscious of yourself. This creative love lives in each moment in which man as thought can not enter. 
Only a fool will deliberately walk through this door within to be stripped of him self. It takes a great fool to open himself up for this to enter the temple of his being. Such a being is summoned by compassion for the sake of the world and all its sorrow. Seeing there is no other answer, he see what must be done and turns within. Unmoved by superficial solutions to the world crisis and all the suffering in and around him. Without choice he takes a single step into the doorway marked by death. Come what may; know there is no other way. One must enter this living death to discover eternal love that has the power to solve all our fundamental problems.
As a human being, we must see that all efforts within the field of knowledge, faith and reason have failed humanity. None of the religions or beliefs has solved our human dilemma. So man must turn within himself.  Not out of ignorance but understanding. Through negation and psychological death, man discovers he is not the ego that is identified with the flesh. He must discover he is nothing. We must all discover that exquisite love and affection which can solve our psychological problems of consciousness. 
When at once you enter death, all will be clear. In this clarity you discover this empty-fullness within. Then you will understand what love is. This perfect love takes you by surprise and fills you completely.  This love which awakens within you was never born and never created. It is eternity devoid of time. It is the fulfillment that can not be spoken. What words can paint a picture that could give understanding to another of this glorious revelation? No amount of words, no matter how eloquent, can describe this immensity. It is the beauty of unwritten poetry in which you must see within. This love is inexpressible joy.
Spiritually, we must all discover this truth within ourselves.  Then we may live in the light of intelligence beyond the shadows of darkness and sorrow. And only then will we create a holy and harmonious life on earth. Not tomorrow, but here and now. A life in which you live in the freedom of eternal love.

Live in the Moment

by wallyg

Instead of running yourself ragged worrying about tomorrow, this month, harness the power of the present.


Let People Buoy you Up


Having a blue day? Rather than brooding alone, seek out people. ‘Part of being happy moment by moment is taking charge of your mood, and you can do this just by making the effort to interact with someone,’ says Julie Clark Robinson in Live in the Moment (Beyond Words). Whether it’s an old friend, the cashier at the supermarket or a stranger on a bus, people make the difference between a day that’s full and one that’s melancholy, she says.


Align your Body with Today


Physiotherapist and mind-body practitioner Sue Fuller-Good advocates focusing on your breathing to bring you into the present moment. ‘If you’re always thinking about the future, and what’s coming, your body will manifest that. Your posture may be tilted forward, with your face poking out. By changing your body posture, you are changing your mind, because the two are interlinked,’ she says. ‘Try to keep your attention on this minute. For example, when you’re in traffic, thinking anxiously about where you’re going and whether you’re going to be late won’t get you there any faster. Rather, living “forward” will make you oblivious to the opportunities available now. You can’t control the future, and it often doesn’t turn out like we plan. The one moment you can control is right now.’


Live Each Day to the Full


Being aware of our day-to-day, minute-by-minute usage of time can help to keep us firmly fixed in the now, rather than focused anxiously in the future or regretfully in the past. Being really aware, rather than rushing through you life, means noticing the small stuff.


‘I’ve set my sports watch to beep at me every hour,’ says Life Strategies’ Cris Baker. ‘I use this as a reminder to notice what’s happening right at that moment. I stop whatever I’m doing and take a few seconds to enjoy whatever is happening: the sun, the rain, the clouds or the blue sky, the people passing or the quiet when people aren’t passing. When there is a magnificent sunset, I stop to watch it. This rarely delays me by more than a few minutes, and if I am late, I’m late. Life is too short to worry about what isn’t. I prefer to enjoy what is.’


Stop the Worrying


Meditation is one of the best ways to learn to limit interfering thoughts. And everyone can do it. Just five minutes a day of sitting quietly listening to your breathing, trying to clear your mind of runaway thoughts, and simply acknowledging what you’re doing, when you’re doing it, is a great way to focus on the now.


‘Generally, when we think about the past or the future, we are either pleased or unhappy about it. But following random thoughts is giving away our power to the external event’ says Baker. ‘Rather let it be, and instead think about the thoughts you want to spend your time exploring. So any time we’re in the future or the past, we’re missing life; we’re missing the present,’ he says. ‘When I find myself worrying, I find solace in this quote by Mark Twain:’ ‘I am a very old man and have suffered a great many misfortunes, most of which never happened,’ says Baker.

Droid Screen Protector – Best To Use With Your Droid Docking Station

After investing in a Droid docking station, I discovered that the protective case I had for my Droid 2 made it pretty much impossible to dock my phone. If you are into the latest gadgets for your new phone, you want to get something that will give you lasting protection. What I discovered was a product that not only does that, but also allows me to use my docking station effortlessly!

Most of the screen protectors that are available are bulky and can cost a pretty penny as well. I liked that my phone was well protected from drops and knocks, and probably will continue to use it in the right situation. However, I had bought a Droid docking station and now was faced with a problem. The case I used was too wide to fit the docking station. This lead me to search out something that would side step this big problem. This was important because I use the station not only as my bedside alarm clock and recharger, but also bought a second one for work for my desk. Since I am on the go, it was nice to know that I could dock my phone, where it could instantly recharge, and then make use of it in a variety of ways.

After some searching for a Droid screen protector, I uncovered an inexpensive product that would not only protect my phone, but actually is thin enough that still allows me to use my Droid docking station. I can be pretty clumsy with my phone, and I wanted something that would be up for the ride, so to speak. The Realook Droid screen protectors seemed to be up for the challenge.

The crystal clear film that comprises the Realook screen protector was a real selling point for me. I read about other thin screen protectors that caused blurring or even nasty reflections making it hard to read. Once applied, the screen remained crystal clear and gave me an instant sense of ease, knowing my phone was protected. Now, my first attempt to get the screen protector in place was less than perfect, but because they are reusable, I was able to quickly re-align the film. I really liked the fact that they come with a anti-fingerprint coating too.

Depending on the phone you have, Droid, Droid X or Droid II, there is a difference in what is available, so make sure you get the one that is suited for your phone. I recommend that if you are considering a Droid docking station, that you look into getting a Realook screen protector for added durability.

Cell phones are expensive investments, and providing protection should be a no-brainer. For a few dollars, you too can get a Droid screen protector that will provide superior scratch protection for your Droid phone.

I have details on the Realook screen protectors as well as some others for you to consider through my website,
