Perceiving Perception or … Shall We Change Our Destiny Today?

 

unknown

Physicist Werner Heisenberg concluded that both the experiment and the experimenter are changed through the act of observation.  If this be so, can we perhaps intervene with destiny by selectively conforming and responding to the daily environmental and/or physical phenomena/data we perceive (that which is most often just beyond awareness or understanding of our heavily preconditioned mindset)?

Why not? Some say that all things are possible for those who believe it to be so. When we capture or are captured by an underlying ethereal nuance found just beyond the boundaries of our reality (while viewing/experiencing an act occurring in our lives) we can become transformed (so to speak).  Certainly our way of thinking or perceiving alters to a degree. And in those illuminating discoveries we expand not only our knowledge but also how we will approach the next adventure in our life.

But have we truly changed our destiny perhaps even manifesting into a parallel universe? Have we changed our future? Would we even know if this occurred? All questions unanswerable but delightfully imaginative, which is where I believe these mysterious answers will be found and where the “id” of our being truly exists – if we allow it to do and be.

Shall we make it so? I think we should:  believe in the unbelievable, imagine the unimaginable, and mostly I would love each and every one of us to achieve the unachievable by always, always dreaming the impossible dreams!

Have a wonderful week to come in this universe or some other …

Believing in YOU! Start today … your first step to success!

 

“I couldn’t wait for success, so I went ahead without it!” Jonathan Winters

Once you decide for yourself that you can accomplish what you’re setting out to do – success begins to be happen. The hardest part is thinking you can achieve those goals! Believing in Yourself!

If you’re not where you want to be, doing what you want to do … then set about changing things. But first …

Believe in yourself! Find your voice that speaks for you!

Surround yourself with positive, action oriented, people who believe in themselves too. (They’ve already figured it out and will support your endeavors!)

You don’t need the naysayers – they’re just jealous!

and then …

Believe you can do it! I mean really, really believe it!

There’s this wonderful positiveness to a “making it happen” energy flow. It’s quite contagious and you can be at the root of it. How you feel about things – your potentials, your possibilities! The driving core for achieving success is knowing, believing that YOU can accomplish whatever you set out to do!

So … what are you waiting for? Go … make things happen!

Today!

Now!

Just do it!

 

I wish you a happy ‘rest of your week’!

With affection,

Today’s the Day to Begin: Your passion, your dreams, your goals – YOU!

 

abwishes

For most of us, by the time we’re adults we’ve become adept at one thing – an expert even, in many cases. We are creative geniuses when it comes to procrastination or excuses for why we’re not doing something. And it goes even further than that.

When things don’t go the way we think they should, we go a step further and blame others, situations or circumstances for why something isn’t happening for us. We end up being our own worst enemy.

The hardest thing to overcome is the infinite variety of rationales (excuses) we come up with, on any given day, for why we don’t start something or finish it … once begun. Once we recognize that  “we” are actually the problem, or at least our resistant attitude, things begin to happen. Make today your first happening day!

Always remember, it’s your choices and your passion that will get you were you want to be!

Have a great day and better tomorrow.

With affection,

The Practice of Practicing!

It’s all about the practice of things!

I will not give in

I’ll practice each day,

no matter the problems

coming my way.

I’ll practice and practice,

I shall not fail.

Watch me go to it,

blazing my trail.

*

You can practice being successful, getting better and better at a thing or you can practice not doing much of anything at all, because in the end it is about practicing, repeating, improving upon, strengthening, over and over until it becomes a habit.

It doesn’t happen any other way.

*

So practice! Believe in your self! Set goals and then practice!

See yourself being successful! And don’t under any circumstances let anyone else stop you! Not ever!

Begin today. Create your own habit of practicing success!

*

Have an excellent week ahead,

~ Penny

The Passions of the your mind! All you can be!

Hello and welcome.

Do you ever think about the nature of passion?  Your Passions! The passion and desire to be all that you can be. In the past I’ve written several posts and poems about passion.

Passion is tightly interwoven with all of our senses. So intimately are they connected that you can’t discuss the one without at least understanding the other.

When I first wrote about passion, last fall, I discussed the passion of both the writer and the reader. Later on I referred to “symbols” and used the heart (for example) while relating to love and the desire for one another. But passion is so much more vast in what it encompasses.

Our passions in life are often the fuel that give us the courage to go ahead, the motivation to do that which we so desire to do with our lives.

And I believe the power of passion is embedded within every single one of us (Both Men and Women)! It only needs your particular catalyst to be released.

Being passionate is really about your thoughts and senses overflowing with the strongest of your emotions – IN ANY AREA OF YOUR LIFE on ANY SUBJECT!

There are those who feel great passion inside, but releasing it is a whole ‘nuther thing. Embedded passion needs a spark to be ignited. But there’s a trick here, I think.

YOU are the one that will allow your passion’s release. For some this comes so easily, it seems … for others it is a struggle to open up your senses fully – breathe life in with big huge gulps – and embrace all that amazing potential life has waiting. Yours for the taking, just sitting there inside of you – waiting.

Passion is risky. You know that. There can be…consequences. But important things in life come with risks. Living life itself is a risk, but we can’t grow if we don’t challenge ourselves. (Are you listening to me “ladies”?)

This is the very nature of the fabric of life … living it. So what are you waiting for? What is your passion, because I believe that right now is your time! Go ahead release your passions – you can do this, your passion’s inside just waiting to be released:

Passion’s Release

Come…

I am here, inside waiting

Release me.

I can promise you emotions you have never felt.

The depth of my promise is as deep as

the deepest ocean,

as high as the mightiest mountain,

as wide and full,

as the canyons of dreams within your mind.

You will live as never before,

this I promise you.

Release me,

I will give you all you desire and so much

more, yours for the taking.

We will explore everything in life

and beyond –

the reaches of time and space

– infinity.

I can do this, I promise

Release me!

I will set fire to your dreams,

I will recreate ever wonder ever conceived

fashioned only for you.

Come,

Release me!

I am your reward for daring to live and love

and dance and sing and laugh!

Set me free – I am you, waiting to happen!

Have a great Thursday,
Penny

Yes, you can – Yes you can! Getting funded for your business!

When you promote, sometimes the trick is coming up with a trick! Something innovative and clever enough that gets you the attention you need.

Some years ago I started up a small marketing firm, and I ran into a few financial problems where I needed to raise funds (when you’re a new young business, this can happen – a lot). I knew about an “angel investor” a weathy entrepreneur who “invested” and/or lent money to young businesses. He’d give them a helping hand … if he liked their business idea.

The problem, getting in to see this large business owner was next to impossible. He had a personal assistant, a private secretary and several receptionists that handled most of his correspondence. And a very busy schedule with national and international interests!

He didn’t attend many of the local city (Portland, Oregon) business type affairs and functions. I was really struggling with how to get by his various assistants who I knew would show me the door. So how was I going to get an appointment with this individual?

And then I came up with an idea. My budget was almost non-existent, yet I spent a substantial amount of money on a beautiful bouquet of flowers. One that looked professional but personal, and I wrote a short message, sealed it inside a small envelope and had the flowers with the “envelope” delivered to the investor, himself!

I was betting on the fact that none of his aides would feel comfortable opening the envelope addressed to him. And they weren’t. He was the first person to read my note.

The next morning I received a call from the personal assistant. His opening words to me were “You’re are very clever Penny, Mr — said to tell you he will give you just 15 minutes of his time on Monday, at 8 a.m. sharp.”

Yes I was excited but very nervous. I organized all the documentation I felt I needed to show him, I reviewed, again and again what I had to say and in what order to get his attention. I only had 15 minutes to accomplish my goals. The morning came, I showed up. I was led into a gorgeous office suite overlooking the water, from Swan island where his offices were located.

I shook his hand, looked directly into his eyes, told him why I needed the money, what I planned to do with it, handed him the paperwork to back it up (which he glanced at and set aside) and then he proceeded to ask me a lot of business type questions, by then the 15 minutes were up and his aid opened the door and said “Sir your long distance call is waiting.”

I knew that was the signal my 15 minutes were up, but then my potential investor looked at his aide and said “I’m not through here yet, I’ll call them back.” I stayed 45 minutes, had to return in a week with more paperwork but he did agree to help!

Previous to my meeting, I’d been told by another business owner, that almost anyone who approached this individual when asking for money, never made it past 10 minutes, before the long distance phone call happened! So I was very pleased and honestly proud of my accomplishment – because through the whole process I was “scared to death” and not sure I could do it!

His final words on our first meeting were. “Oh and Penny, the flowers are beautiful, thank you.”

And the message? Would you like to know what I wrote? It said:

“Dear Sir, I am a young entrepreneur and if you meet with me I can prove to you that I have a business idea you would want to invest in! Enjoy the flowers, either way! Thank you, Penny”

This is a memory I will always remember fondly, because in spite of my fear and doubts I proved to myself that “Yes I can and guess what … If I can, then so can you!”
