You might imagine heaven to be a place where choirs of angels sing non-stop and where everyone is so perfect that they all seem the same. My visit to heaven says that is no so. During my near-death experience, I witnessed many of us there. While we were actually quite angelic, we were far from the same.
The heaven I witnessed was filled with wonderful amazing beings (not sure we were angels at that point) who were intent on using their personal power to create personal growth. We all believed in our potential and not only did we honor each other – we honored ourselves. If you took away all of the love that infused heaven, you would still have what I would consider heave: a place where we honored each other and sincerely desired the best in personal growth to be realized by everyone there. We were not equal in talents and gifts but we were equally honored and prized for who we are. I use a present tense verb here because, in truth, who we were there is still who we truly are.
God is our father and He is real and He has given every single one of us gifts and talents. We may have different life circumstances, but we all have the gift of personal power to overcome our obstacles and to live the life that we were created for!
I hope that you are living the life that you were created for. If not, it’s never too late!

Do Not Limit Yourself

My Grandmother was always encouraging me to set goals and work hard to achieve them. She would tell me not to be a follower and not to set limits on what I could achieve. She truly believed that there were no limits that you could achieve whatever you wanted.
A Farmer’s Lesson In Life
A farmer won a first prize at the country fair for his huge radish that was the exact shape and size of a quart of milk bottle. Many were curious as to how the farmer was able to grow this radish that was the exact shape of a milk bottle.
Finally one gentleman went up to the farmer and asked the question. The farmer replied, “It was easy. I got the seed growing and then I put it into the milk bottle. It had nowhere else to go.”
You can use this story as an analogy to life – our lives are shaped by the kind of surroundings we place ourselves in, the people that we allow to influence us, and the goals we give ourselves.
These Are Key Ingredients
If we only dream and take no action then we get no further. But if we plan, set a goal and take action then our life takes a different shape.
Now, the important parts of goal setting, though, go way beyond just writing down a goal statement and thinking that somehow your goal will be reached.
To write a goal is only a minor part of the way forward. The rest of the elements of how to reach that goal must also be stated clearly and with a definite time frame to each step.
This means that you must develop a detailed plan of action where each action step is detailed on what you must do, when and how and how much time it will take. If you do not make your plan detailed in this way and set specific target dates for completion, you will simply not be creating any kind of expectation in your mind or urgency that helps keep you moving.
