Value in your life

Don’t discount what you already have. There is great value in your life if you will simply open yourself up to see it, to appreciate it, and to make meaningful use of it.

Sometimes the challenges can seem so overwhelming that they block out everything else. Yet when the challenges are at their greatest is precisely when you can benefit most from connecting to the abundance in your life.

That abundance is absolutely there. So how do you see it, and make use of it?

Start by being thankful for the life you have, and for the people, places, things and events in it. Then, focus on a vision of exactly how you would like your life to be, if it could be any way you choose.

Make that vision an intention, and commit yourself to that intention without compromise. Allow yourself to become positively passionate and joyful about working your way toward where you truly wish to go.

When you have something positive and specific upon which to focus, you’ll begin to see more and more of the value that’s already yours. And you’ll be able to make good and loving use of that value to move positively and enthusiastically forward.
