Last Month on February 28, Your Law of Attraction on Google+ shared
Road to Success”. How does your picture in your mind looks like?

What is your road to success paved with?
How do you travel your road?

What are your goals on your road?


Do you THINK you ARE a success?

You DO know that believing you are successful is the first step to becoming successful?  I’m sure my friend, Gibson Goff would agree, as his blog A Daily Dose of Success details how to be successful.


In my response to Your law of Attraction’s question, I responded:
I keeping moving forward toward my goals:
–Writing the best content I can.
–Photographing and sometimes melding my two gifts as in writing a photography blog:
CJP Photo News


Keep pushing forward.
Keep your eyes on the prize and don’t let anyone place debris in your river:
Your Life is Like a River


It is important to keep your eyes on the prize and keep putting one foot in front of the other and to keep in mind as I’m fond of saying that:
Life is a marathon and not a sprint.


Success won’t always be vertical.  Sometimes you must step sideways, to make that vertical step, and while you STEP sideways you won’t see the big picture until long after.  It’s happened to me with my chosen career.  I wanted to write for a living, however I quickly realized that MOST writers simply can’t make a living solely through writing.  They must find a day job.


I stepped sideways into the book field; and even then I received consternation.

How will you make a living doing that?  was a refrain I heard from time to time.  Well, I’m here to say I HAVE made my living thus far in the book field, having worked at my local public library since 1998.  One of the most important things I can say and it’s been consistent here at Wisdom and Life in the Parental Pressure category here is this:
Don’t let ANYONE stand in your way of following your dream.
Don’t let ANYONE convince you to do something solely based on financial success.

It’s those people who chase the money and not their gifts that are the most stressed.
It’s those people who chase the money who want to keep you from feeling the freedom of joy.


Don’t let them block your flow.
Don’t let them dam your river.


Make sure your road to success is paved with your gift.  Whatever that may be.


Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you.


Once you realize that life is eternal,
That our souls our eternal,
That we return to light and physical over and over;

We then lose all our distress
We then lose all our fear of dying.  For there truly is no end.
