Are You Terrified of Your Brain?

      “It’s your life—you can save it or sink it.”  Maxi Malone

For years I have said that we don’t begin to tap into the brain power that God has given us. Physically, mentally and emotionally we have tremendous ability that lays dormant inside … because of fear.

Brain1“I could never do that,” some people said when I wrote my first book.

Do you long to write a book? Then do it. Take the first step. Sit down, take a blank sheet, and write the first sentence.

It ain’t easy. It takes me one year to write a novel. Still, if you really want it—never give up. Write one page a day. Make sure that your spelling is perfect. Most importantly, know your characters. They drive the story.

Have you lost someone and the pain is so excruciating it takes you to your knees? When Brain2I lost the love of my life that pain came home to me.

You don’t have to feel that all is lost. You can keep that person alive in your life in many ways. Pour that morning cup o’ coffee and take a short walk, talk to your loved one. Tell them what you’re doing, ask what they think. Doesn’t matter if they can’t answer. It’s the doing that counts. You will know when you’re ready to move on … if ever.

Brain3“One foot in front of the other will take you anywhere.”Maxi Malone

Tap into the power of your mind — believe you can make it happen.

Everyday wake up with a plan. Don’t think of whether you can do it or not. Take the first step. Yeah, but it’s that job you hate. Oooh, I use to be there.

Take the job and turn it around or start lookin.’ In other words, don’t make the job about other people. “If only I didn’t have to work with so and so, I can’t stand her.” Or, “The boss is such a jerk.” And this one, “Oh, she makes me so mad.”

No one else can make you do anything. The feelings you have belong to you. Your life is about you, the only one who can change it is — YOU.

P.S. I am going to run an online company. I have registered the logo with the Library of Congress. I am nearly done designing the web site. I am 72.
