Many like to talk about the success of famous people but only a few are interested in what it took for them to get there. How often have we stopped to think about the process that leads up to their success? I'd like to talk about the waiting period. You won't hear many people talking about this. Who likes to wait? Who wants to wait for years? We get flustered when we are in traffic for hours, in long queues at the hospital, supermarket, theatre, etc. We just can't be bothered by the long wait. These scenarios are no different from pursuing our dreams. Many of us can't be bothered by the wait that's why we stop, not to rest, but to quit on our dreams.  Take for example Abraham Lincoln.  Lost his job, 1832 Defeated for the legislature, 1832 Failed in business, 1833 Elected to the legislature, 1834 His sweetheart (Ann Rutledge) died, 1835 Had a nervous breakdown, 1836 Defeated for Speaker, 1838 Defeated for nomination for Congress, 1843 Elected to Congress, 1846 Lost r

82 powerful affirmations to live by.

  Affirmations aren't a bunch of nice things that you say to yourself once in a while; then with the wave of a wand, you automatically become them. Not so, faith without works is dead! You must be willing to put in the work. It's a process that you have to repeat daily until these things that you have been saying becomes a part of you. Not only that, you must first believe in whatever you're saying or it will never happen. Meditate on your affirmations when you go to bed, when you wake up, when you are alone, wherever you go. You won't just get up out of the blue and become the most confident person on earth. It happens gradually. Just know that some affirmations can take years before they manifest themselves.

  There are times when our lives and the lives of our loved ones take an unexpected turn. Sickness isn't something that we would gladly welcome into our lives but the reality is that anyone at any time can become sick. Even those who appear to be fit and healthy. In these debilitating moments, there's still hope. Hope that we'll get better. Hope that our loved ones will get better. Hope that our pain and suffering will end. These waiting moments can be lonely, stressful, and depressing at times. It gets even worse with financial constraints. The psychological effects of not having the funds to purchase much-needed medication or cover a life-saving surgery are a nightmare. It's a whole different level of frustration!
