You Must Persevere

You Must Persevere

By Dexter Yarbrough

There is great reward in knowing that you cannot be deflated by circumstances. There is something inside everyone that is far superior to anything outside. Finding and developing that something gives you real security.

Doubt and worry freezes people. Don’t sit wondering if you can do something, just go and do it. Doubt of any kind can be ended with action.

If you are afraid to do something in case you fail, you will never do anything. You are going to fall, the glory is in rising when you fall. Get in the game!

Some people always throw stones in your path. It depends on what you make with them. A Wall or a Bridge? – Remember you are the architect of your life.

“Difficulties are opportunities to do better things; they are stepping-stones to greater experience… When one door closes, another always opens; as a natural law it has to, to balance.” –Brian Adams

Remember – Your body is an instrument of your mind. Pay attention to your thoughts!

Fear: Deal With It

Fear: Deal With It

By Dexter Yarbrough

If you are experiencing fear, understand this, you get rid of it by facing it. That doesn’t mean it is not going to come into your mind. It will but, when it does, kick it right out.

“Love is what we were born with. Fear is what we learned here.”

“Many of us crucify ourselves between two thieves – regret for the past and fear of the future.”

“Fear of failure must never be a reason not to try something.”

“FEAR is an acronym in the English language for “False Evidence Appearing Real.”

“Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgement that something else is more important than fear.”

Remain Positive

Remain Positive

By Dexter Yarbrough

“Don’t wait for extraordinary opportunities. Seize common occasions and make them great!” Orison Marden

Regardless of what has happened in the past, the future lies ahead with an open slate, waiting for you to take control and create a wonderful life for yourself.

Write this out – Today I will not waste my time by becoming upset by small things. I will devote today to worthwhile actions and great thoughts.

You have the ability in your conscious mind to accept or reject. Don’t open your mind to negative energy. Exercise your will!

“Never give up. Never ever give up. Why? Because just when you are about to give up is when things are about to turn around in a grand way. Hold on. Great things are waiting for you around the corner.” S. Ricotti

Moving Forward

Moving Forward

Inspiration by Dexter Yarbrough

When the wrong people walk out of your life, that just makes room for the right ones to walk in.

One day you will meet someone that doesn’t care about your past because they want to be in your future.

When people undermine your dream predict your failure or criticize you, remember, they are telling you THEIR story. Not yours.

When I started counting my blessings, my whole world turned around.

Inspiring Thoughts

Inspiring Thoughts

Shared by Dexter Yarbrough

You are the only problem you will ever have and you are the only solution. Change is inevitable, but personal growth is a choice. – Bob Proctor

You cannot hope to solve any problem using the same energy that created the problem. Whether it’s the endless wars in the world or the unending quarrels and fighting in your own home, the problem is the same: conflicting energy. If you want to change the outcome, change the energy. The extraordinary aspect of this solution is that you do not have to wait for the other party in order to do it. – N Walsh.

Our success in life is achieved through understanding and gaining a higher level of awareness of who we are and what we’re capable of being.- Bob Proctor

How do you see yourself? Change your perception of yourself and what you believe you are capable of doing. Raise the bar! You are capable of so much more. – Bob Proctor
