How to Protect Yourself from Failure

Image
Setbacks in any career are inevitable, and yet some people manage to succeed despite the worst of setbacks.

Their secret is that they know the difference between a setback and failure. The two aren't the same. A setback has to leave scars before it starts to become a failure. There are ways to protect yourself from being scarred. Some of these can be applied in advance, the way you'd apply prevention before you get sick. Others can be applied after a setback has occurred. But in both cases, anyone can learn the skills that are needed.

In advance:

View yourself as a success, no matter what is happening.

Know your personal weaknesses and deal with them.

Address the influence of fear and anxiety.

Stay immersed in the details of your work.

Have a supportive family.

Participate in a supportive team atmosphere.

Identify with interests outside your work.

Develop core values.

Learn how to be centered.

As you can see, this is a sizable list, which includes some critical elements that e…

Imagination, the Path of all Possibilities.

Imagination is a wonderful tool. I have never met a child without imagination. I would go so far as to say that a child without imagination is, well . . . unimaginable.

Gradually over the past few months I have come to realize that maybe what the world needs right now is more imagination on every level.  A surge towards that spectacular dimension of exploration and discovery that I believe is a vital connection to the realms of possibility and beyond.

A world where imagination needs to be ‘grown out of’ in favour of a realism which keeps so many of us locked in to dry, hum drum experiences needs now to change. I worry that imagination in adults is often considered to be weakness or a form of escapism from what the majority sees as truth, fact and ‘real’ life. Mostly though, I worry that those who govern, the decision makers, the law makers and office bearers, may be devoid of imagination altogether. That would be a catastrophe. Without imagination where would they lead us?

2013 In Review - A Year of Transformation

Image
Beloved masters, the process the world and humanity are now experiencing has been spoken of by many wise sages and masters over the past several hundred years, and yet, the masses have not taken heed and have continued on a downward path of self-destruction.

Humanity has built an illusion of wealth and abundance, but it has been built on the quicksand of greed and fear of scarcity.  This giant bubble of illusion has burst under the pressure of the Living Light of truth. What humanity is now experiencing is the cause and effect or the karmic results of following the impulses of the ego-desire body instead of the whisperings of Spirit.  Many dear souls have never experienced lack or deprivation–they have lived a life of instant self-gratification–while others, who believed the old teachings that they were not worthy of abundance, have lived many lifetimes of scarcity and impoverishment.

You, the StarSeed, are in the midst of the astounding process of awakening to the awareness of your c…

1 million to ban the lion trade -- Big win in court!!

Image
Amazing win! A South African court just ruled that the government violated our right to free speech when they tore down ads calling for the protection of South Africa’s lions -- and we’re all over the news. Let’s use this momentum to get our petition to 1 million and save the lions.

Hundreds of South African lions are being slaughtered to make bogus sex potions for men. But we can stop this cruel trade by hitting the government where it hurts -- the tourism industry.

A global ban on tiger bone sales has traders hunting a new prize -- the majestic lions. Lions are farmed under appalling conditions in South Africa for "canned hunting", where rich tourists pay thousands to shoot them through fences. Now experts say lion bones from these killing farms are being exported to phony 'medicine' makers in Asia for record profits. Trade is exploding and experts fear that as prices rise, even wild lions -- with only 20,000 left in Africa -- will come under poaching attack.

If we…
