Greatness 101

Today’s greatness tips come from one of my spiritual leaders, John Assaraf. Follow him on Facebook to see his talks on Tuesdays, 11 am central time.

Learn, Practice, Repeat

We must find out what we don’t know and need to know, then build upon that. Life is an everyday practice in and of itself, so it goes for all else. A problem that many of us have, I’m speaking from experience here, is that we start practicing but then we get tired and give up or either take a break and settle into break mode. We have to learn to fight past that. This is life, life is work; made all the more difficult when we add on unnecessary suffering. Life is simple, some situations and circumstances can be difficult, but we need not get caught up on that. Difficulty is neither here nor there because we can make it through anything we set our minds to.  The point is, learn to whether the storm, and keep moving. We may be tired but life doesn’t stop, and neither should we. We come out all the stronger when we push through.

Learn, Practice, Repeat. Learn, Practice, Repeat. Learn, Practice, Repeat. 

“Practice makes the master.” – Don Miguel Ruiz

“Repetition is key.” – John Kehoe

There are millions of teachers and leaders around you to learn from about this life experience. All the information and knowledge you need to live, live well, and make the most of this experience is there for you. Find your mentor(s), learn, practice, repeat. Do what serves you. Do what you can for others. Learn, practice, repeat.

Words of Wisdom Wednesday

Wisdom from the master himself. This is one of the biggest and most imperative lessons we can learn in life. Especially now, we live in a time of great transition. We are taking an honest, long look at where we have come from and we’re learning, growing, and moving forward rather than doing what a lot of our ancestors did, simply go along with what always and already was.

We are starting to really challenge and question the ideas and mentalities that have been built into society and ourselves and transforming from conforming people to free people. A very necessary and marvelous thing to go through and be a part of. That great transformation/transition begins with these vital words from Mr. Lee.

We must be honest and truthful, firstly with ourselves, then with one another. We must be able to think and do for ourselves; not just take everyone’s word for everything. We have to live through some things and find out the truth for ourselves. Plus, what works for some doesn’t work for others. We each have to find our own way and make it through in our own way.

Let’s continue to grow, learn, and change for the better. We can only get better from here and have only began to really get into it. We’re starting to find some footing in this crazy life that has been laid before us. So let’s work together to do what we can for one another, live our best lives, and create a home and space for future generations to live, prosper, be abundant, and be happy.
