Requisite

Daily Inspiration: The first requisite for success is the ability to apply your physical and mental energies to one problem incessantly without growing weary. ~Thomas Edison

Today’s Affirmation: Tenacity and Pertinacity drive me in my hunger for Divine Humility.

Today’s Contemplation: Staying committed is only possible for those who are methodical and those who are impassioned. There is very little difference and success is granted to both in equal measure. It is as much a blessing to be methodical as it is to be impassioned. Every path is fraught with challenges and filled with blessings; acknowledge your blessings today, stay with your dreams and watch your life blossom.

Best

Today’s Affirmation: I faith my way to a perfect day today.

Today’s Contemplation: Faith is the art of ‘faking it’ without actually needing to pretend. All that is necessary is the belief in an Omnipotent Divinity who is equally Omni-Loving and totally your best friend ever. Faith it till you make it!

Groundswell

Today’s Affirmation: I am given over to good today; I make a difference in all I think, do and say.

Today’s Contemplation: The greatest gift for the transformation and upiftment of this world you and I can make is to be consistent in every way with our highest and most loving intentions.

Understanding

Today’s Affirmation: Through every chaffing I grow today; again I find Love is my way.

Ambitions

Daily Inspiration: Keep away from small people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great. ~Mark Twain

Today’s Affirmation: I am inspired by great words from great hearts today.

Today’s Contemplation: Listen first to the feelings of every person you meet; listen to the loving intentions and the call for love. Choose your counsel from the one’s whose words are in perfect alignment with Love’s pure action and make your life an alignment with them.

Increase

Daily Inspiration: I see knowledge increasing and human power increasing. I see ever-increasing possibilities before life, and I see no limits set to it at all. Herbert George Wells

Today’s Affirmation: With every day, in every way, I grow brighter in the Light.

Today’s Contemplation: The only limit to the human capacity is defined by fear. The high mark of anyone’s capacity is measured by Love. Contrary to the popular notion of the day ‘intelligence’ is not the definition nor is it the control; only the measure of one’s love for life can determine one’s ultimate capacity for acheivement.

Tomorrow

Daily Inspiration: Only put off until tomorrow what you are willing to die having left undone. ~Pablo Picasso

Today’s Affirmation: I act with loving-kindness today and put all other concerns away.

Today’s Contemplation: One must put away all thoughts that do not feel good in one’s heart; let them go, they are toxic and will destroy the mind and body. Only thoughts of loving-kindness will lead to a better longer and healthier tomorrow. And thus death will not leave one’s happiness undone.

Higher

Daily Inspiration: Nurture your mind with great thoughts, for you will never go any higher than you think. ~Benjamin Disraeli

Today’s Affirmation: I choose a world that works for everyone today.

Today’s Contemplation: Choose big dreams that will forever keep you growing. Set goals and let go of them frequently for greater goals. Choose often to step back; it is the best way to effectively move forward. Consistent increments that is what builds a good world and a great people; like the long jump it takes a lot of little steps to make the big ones possible.

Determination

Daily Inspiration: The difference between the impossible and the possible lies in a person’s determination. ~Tommy Lasorda
