Finding Jewels in the Crown of Your Life

Who doesn’t love jewels?

Jewels are precious and valuable finds everywhere on planet earth, and in the midst of chaos or confusion, jewels sparkle regardless of any condition in the day.

What Jewels are in YOUR Crown?

What are your jewels, your treasures, the people, places, and things you value? Want to know who you most authentically are? Look at what, and who you value in your life.  You are whowhat you associate with.

How can this help you be happier? If you know what matters to you most, you can compare and contrasts the life you lead accordingly.

If you value peace, do you associate with people who promote peace? If you value fidelity, do you associate with people who do the same? If you value honesty, do you have friends who live an honest life?

You see, the people you associate with screams like a banner large in the sky about who you most genuinely desire to be, and most truthfully live to be.

 
 
 

The Diamond of YOU!

There can be no confusion in what you are, with you who you associate with. It is critical you think about what you are thinking about. It is equally as important you discern who you associate with, and why.

The people who surround the circle of your life, tell you and the world you live in, who you are, what you value, and what you desire to become. The values who make you the person you are.

If you tell someone you love them, but hit them in the face, the words are a lie.

Actions are the only thermometer you can use
to measure the truth of a situation.

If you want to be truly “happy” you have to be at peace with the values you hold dear, and the desires of your heart. There can be no truth in lies. You must accept what you do speaks louder than what you say.

The most precious jewelers in your life are the one’s you treasure most. Only you can decide who they are.

Every person you accept into your circle of friends is either bringing you closer towards that goal, or away from it. Each person is a jewel in the crown of your life, but only you can decide what that crown will look like.

Your are a jewel. Who wants you in the crown of their life?

What Jewel are YOU?

Stepping into YOUR Spectacular!

Stepping into Your Spectacular!  

(as seen in All Books Review; Inpsiration;  Words of Wisdom)

You crave it, seek it, attempt to keep it, and never tire of acquiring more of it.

 

Jump In!

Your happiness!

The happiness you dream to achieve in becoming your brilliant best. Your most creative self. Expressing the essence of who you are from heart to hand, in a brilliant package of blinding super fine shine. What could be better than this?!

Stepping into your spectacular guarantees happiness, because whenever you express your passionate desires, you are keeping the promise to be who you are authentically created to be.

There is no right or wrong to being you. Is your left leg wrong, and your right leg right? Or is it the right leg is wrong, and the left leg is right?

No, both legs are different for a reason, and you don’t argue with your feet as you walk to where you want to go. You accept that the differences in each leg assists you in getting to your desired location.

Stepping into your spiritual creative spectacular is much the same way.
You need all elements of your passions, dreams, and inspirations to help you move towards your greatness.

Your expression of this magnificence is as unique as your very own face. Happiness is a one-of-a-kind find, designed just for you.

If you have a nagging desire to accomplish some goal, (maybe finish that book?) accept this feeling is not going away for a healthy reason. You must take a step forward and place action behind the emotion. One small step leads to one greater, with more momentum to fuel the next.

Stepping into your spectacular is the most unselfish action you could ever perform. The world needs you.

If you don’t become your very best, who will?

GFMG Your Way to Happiness!

(As seen in Power Women Magazine; by Deb Scott)

I have often said there needs to be a 12 step program for everyone.

A way to live with more self-awareness, detachment, acceptance and peace. A place of resourceful strength able to effectively kill those negative liar voices, the ones who seek to steal the precious positive real estate in your head.

Join the Party!

How and why do the 12 step programs help achieve your happy dream?

Imagine the steps are more simply broken down into four quadrants, or four pieces in a larger pie, or strong spokes in a wheel.

GFMG:

>The first set of 3 steps are about; Giving up
>The second set of 3 steps are about; Fessing up
>The third set of 3 steps are about; Making up
>The last set of 3 are about; Growing up

When we give up control of any situation, we are open to consider things we don’t know.

Once we are open to new ideas, we can see our part in any given circumstance, and focus on the only thing we have any control over anyway, and that would be us.

Once we are open and aware, we naturally want to heal any wounds by making up with the gift of forgiveness. Forgiving ourselves, and the other person, whether they deserve it or not.

Eventually, the process naturally helps us grow up and live life, on life’s terms. We stop the never-ending battle of wishing things were different, and accept things are what they are, grateful we did the best we could at the time with the information we had.

Gratitude for having learned valuable wisdom for the present moment and unwritten future.

It’s all a process.

The 12 Steps:

1. We admitted we were powerless over (insert your problem) —that our lives had become unmanageable.

2. Came to believe that a power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.

3. Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood him.

4. Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.

5. Admitted to God, to ourselves and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.

6. We’re entirely ready to have God remove our shortcomings.

7. Humbly asked him to remove our shortcomings.

8. Made a list of all persons we had harmed, and became willing to make amends to them all.

9. Made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others.

10. Continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong promptly admitted it.

11. Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God as we understood him, praying only for knowledge of his will for us and the power to carry that out.

12. Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to others, and to practice these principles in all of our affairs.

Trees don’t grow twenty feet overnight, and neither does anything in the diamond of a person known as “you.”

GFMG is a winning equation you can always use to never lose!

CONGRATULATIONS! You're On Your Way Today!

ALL BOOKS REVIEW International ~ Highly Recommended! :)

“You don’t know, what you don’t know !”
“Simple? Yes. Easy to accept? No ! Deb Scott’s premise that “You don’t know, what you don’t know,” is the basis for transforming negatives into positives. It is the foundation for her book.
The Sky is Green and the Grass is Blue teaches readers to reverse their thinking; to turn all of life’s negativity into a positive, happy life. Starting at the beginning she convinces readers that help is just a step away. First and foremost you must open your mind and open your heart. Prayer is encouraged.
The author suggests that “going it alone” does not work. The book recommends several well-qualified organizations, at no cost to the member, that can help. The next step would be professional therapists and coaches and media tools, all practically listed and suggested. Numerous stories and anecdotes are included to make her point and provide entertainment.
Well organized, humorous, entertaining and yet, very in depth sensible advice, this book will be a great help to many people in conquering their fears and their past.”
Highly Recommended

A Review by Dr. Patrick A. O’Dougherty, out of the F. Scott Fitzgerald community of St. Paul, MN

“Brilliant!”

“Encouragement. Deb Scott should be encouraged. I come from a family of counselors. My mother, Patricia O’Dougherty, was a social worker on the charging team in Minneapolis. She worked with the women’s prison, alcoholics, and the Indian mothers. My father, James O’Dougherty, was an attorney who specialized in counseling. I have a counselor who specializes in counseling writers. I, first, sought counseling because I did not want to fall through the cracks in life. I am evaluating Deb Scott’s book not as a professional but as a consumer. Motivation. Motivation is one of the hardest topics to write about because it is very difficult to judge motivation. Actions speak louder than words. Writing a motivational book is quite an ambitious undertaking. Deb Scott maintains motivation should lead to action. This book review is an action, a defining point an outcome from reading the book. The strength of Deb Scott’s book is it is filled with prayers and profundities. It has exercises and a plan, focus and positive advice. It has religious themes without being preachy or proselytizing. I went to Washburn High School in Minneapolis. Dwayne Dwyer replicated the miracles of St. Francis of Assisi on the stage with the audience. I don’t think my high school physics teacher at Washburn, Mr. Requeway, could do this. Deb Scott is a replicable miracle. The kingdom of God is within. It is within you. It is within Deb Scott. Ironically, I made a teaching film which uses a similar exercise to the one Deb Scott does. My exercise is to spell your name with dots between the letters and then turn the letters of your name into a poem with another person’s name and then connect the dots and poems. Service. Get out of yourself is another profound piece of advice from Deb Scott. Surround yourself with motivational tapes, meditation and positive reinforcement. Advice I have found useful is to make a roadmap of your life and chart it. Gratitude. Count your blessings. Deb Scott’s advice, profundities and ironies are grace notes for new prescriptions in your life. I hope this review makes you feel new. Your book renewed my interest in your field. You want to change people’s thinking and lead them to do good. It is difficult to judge motivation. So, I won’t judge Deb Scott, rather accept. Brilliant!”

WOUNDED~TO~WONDERFUL

Wounded to Wonderful – what a brilliant catch phrase for daily living!

Like a left and right leg, we need both to stay upright and move forward in any direction.

Want to really go somewhere in your life? Don’t waste time trying to figure out if the left leg is bad, and the right leg wrong, or is it the right leg is wrong, and the left leg is right?

Beauty in a Broken Heart

Accept you need both, and surrender to the fact each is completely different for a reason, and both of their differences are working to help you achieve a bigger common goal which will make you happy. Now there is some right side up true blue sky thinking!

When Nancy Wait and I discussed her idea for the flow of her radio show, we brainstormed creative, fun, powerful ways you could gain imagrey and practical application to duplicate a consistent equation towards all things good for you.

Like the legs which take you to any physical desire, what are the spiritual vehicles which cooperate to bring you towards the dreams you seek?

Surrender + Hope = Knowing Self

Why does “Knowing Self” balance the equation? Because only in Knowing Self can one know anyone, or anything else.

Every person has a wound, this is an apparent bad we all share in common. It’s what allows you to read the story of someone you never met, and feel as if you have known them forever. The wound exposes your/my/our deep vulnerability.

So how can a wound be transformed into wonderful?

This question begs you to define exactly what “wonderful” means to YOU? Is it that warm and fuzzy feeling you get when opening a birthday gift? The attainment of a goal you have ached to acheive? Or is it finding the good lesson which makes good great, bad into good, or sadness into overwhelming joy?

Consider seeking to learn the good lesson in any given event, will automatically transform the event into something positive, regardless of what you may feel in the now moment. Consider you’re not finished yet. Consider the pressure of the circumstances you most detest, are helping you become your brightest happy best!

Resisting Resistance

Why do we always seem to resist the very thing we want most? What is up with that?

You Can Do It!

Resistance manifests itself in many ugly ways, none of them helpful towards creating a full life you can love.

Let’s look at three top ways resistance can manifest itself, and how to transform these obstacles into stepping stones.

1. Procrastination-

This is huge. We often resist our own greatness by procrastinating. It always seems the top of the refrigerator needs to dusted, the windows washed, or the car cleaned, right when you plan on attacking one of your top priorities. This sabotage against success keeps you hostage, blocking your most creative self from engaging the world.,

2. Addictions-

Addictions can also be a form of resistance in that they suffocate your true self with a person, place, or thing, instead of keeping the focus on what you really want. Recognizing this addiction is only counterfeit happiness, is key.

3. Busyness-

Ever said, “I just don’t have time for that?” This is really not true, because we all make time for the things we want to do, not necessarily what we need to do. Staying busy in a drama king/queen life, only masks what you authentically desire to be busy with. So how do you transform these forms of resistance into platforms which spring board you into valuable action/results? Here is a winning equation to write down, and post where you can see it regularly.

Awareness + Acceptance = Action

You must first be aware you are resisting something of your own free will. Once you are aware you are doing this to yourself, you can accept it is happening, and you want to stop the behavior. Once you accept it is your choice to resist, you understand it is also your choice to stop revisiting. This can lead to a new action. A new action which results in getting your desire accomplished.

Laughter is a great medicine of the mind without side effects.

When you catch yourself resisting, laugh at yourself and admit, “There I go again!” When you bring resistance out in the open, you remove any power it has over you.

Resistance can be a positive road sign to motivate you to a higher level of creative expression, success, and a transformation.  A sure seal your best self is on it’s way.  Name it and claim it!

$84,600.00 to be HAPPY!

So I was listening to one of those inspirational shows, and the question was posed:

“You have just been given $84.600.00 dollars to spend in 24 hours – what do you buy – what do you spend it on – do you spend it all – or leave a few dollars behind?”  

Time is Money!

I really pondered what I would do with that. what about you?

Then.. the speaker really threw the curve ball…

There are 84,600.00 minutes in a day, and when the day is done, you can never get those minutes back – they are gone forever. So how do you SPEND all those priceless minutes in YOUR life? What are you doing with your time and life in those moments – because you don’t get them back. What an analogy!

Write it Down ~ Make it Happen

so..the question goes from me to you…What are you doing with your 86.400 second in a day?

YOU get your dreams to come true, only when you only give.

You only get back what you give in this life – that is the upside down turned right side up!

YOU!

So..what are doing with your 84.600.00 seconds here to be happy and make your dreams come true?

Post YOUR comment below, and tell us what YOU do with YOUR 84.600 seconds in a day to make a million!

Death into New Life!

mom and nana 1950 in vermontWhen my mom, and best friend (Rachel) passed away in 2005, I was left dead with her. In the depth of pain, I never felt or saw anything good in her passing. I took comfort she was happier in heaven, than suffering the slow death of cancer eating away at her, but in the all about me show – I was left here alone, empty, without her. [Read more…]
