Samuel Johnson, Winter – An Ode

JANUARY 8, 2023 BY JOHN BECKETT
While on my Solstice break, I met a friend for coffee, tea, and conversation. We’ve stayed in touch on social media but we hadn’t seen each other in several years. It was a wonderful experience – I wish I could do it more often.

BELIEVE IN YOUR OWN SUCCESS
“What you believe yourself to be, you are.”
— Claude M. Bristol
Do you believe, deep down inside of you, that you can succeed in what you want to do?
Beliefs are strong, and they have the power to attract what is believed to us. If we doubt our ability to succeed, if we in fact believe we WON’T succeed, then sure enough, that’s what will happen.
What do you believe about yourself? You have the power to change your beliefs, and that will change your outcome. Set goals you believe you can accomplish. Your beliefs will shape your actions. As you achieve these goals, you’ll begin to believe you are capable of succeeding and of doing even more.
“It is better to believe than to disbelieve; in so doing you bring everything to the realm of possibility.”
— Albert Einstein
“Believe it can be done. When you believe something can be done, really believe, your mind will find the ways to do it. Believing a solution paves the way to solution.”
— Dr. David Schwartz
A Note from the Universe
Please don’t let the wisdom you seek or the changes you wish to manifest be driven by feelings that you’re somehow flawed, weak, or lacking. Because your ability to imagine change in spite of the illusions that surround you and move toward it without even knowing “how” your kingdom will come is the hallmark of perfection, strength, and divinity.
