You say you de be my God. You dey carry my load. I am not moved by what they say. My help come from the Lord. You may say you can not give me, But you can not say God will not give me. Along is God who shares, everyman must have his portion. I will never let you go Jesus.

"An argument is always about what has been made more important than the relationship."
- , is an author, minister, and counselor.
"However good or bad you feel about your relationship, the person you are with at this moment is the "right" person, because he or she is the mirror of who you are inside."
- , best-selling author and speaker.
"An does not banish loneliness. Only when we are comfortable with who we are can we truly function independently in a healthy way, can we truly function within a relationship. Two halves do not make a whole when it comes to a healthy relationship: it takes two wholes."
- Patricia Fry, author.
"Some of the biggest challenges in relationships come from the fact that most people enter a relationship in order to get something. They're trying to find someone who's going to make them feel good. In reality, the only way a relationship will last is if you see your relationship as a place that you go to give, and not a place that you go to take."
- , peak performance coach & best-selling author.

It's really popular these days to say "You do you, and I'll do me and then MAYBE we can be together." The more I dive into what makes me REALLY happy in a relationship, the more I think this is total B.S.
If you only love yourself, if you only want someone who meets YOUR needs, if you only have room for someone who fits perfectly into into all your expectations of how you THINK a relationship SHOULD BE; I have news for you... YOU WILL NEVER HAVE PASSION with that attitude.
Of course you have to love yourself. Or course your cup has to be full in order to give to someone else, but that isn't enough. This hard barrier of "I'm doin' me" only is a purely narcissistic thought and based on fear. The fear that you have to do only you because if you let someone else in, they might mess it all up, they may not meet your needs, they may not have your best interest in mind. So, instead of being giving with your love, you hold it back and just "love yourself". That is only HALF of the equation. With that kind of attitude you may have a partner, and it may be hot at first, but eventually the initial excitement will die. Once lust fades and the challenge of being in a REAL and LOVING relationship is at hand, you can't just LOVE YOURSELF.
To have PASSION, to have EXCITEMENT, FULFILLMENT and JOY in a relationship you must LIVE for the other person. Put as much time, attention, energy and passion into your relationship as you do achieving your goals. A relationship, like anything else, requires energy and attention.
Wow! Living for someone else, sounds scary doesn't it? What if they leave you; what if they aren't the right person? That is the EXACT same line of thinking that a scared entrepreneur says before they start a business, "What if this doesn't work?" And that question leaves a doubt in your mind and is an excuse to not give it your all. Whether it is a new business or a relationship, being fearful that it won't work and therefore holding back is a main contributing reason WHY you don't have the relationship and success that you so eagerly desire.
If you are in a relationship and it's lacking passion, do EVERYTHING you can for three months to serve your partner. Act EXACTLY the same as you did at the beginning of the relationship. Ladies, make your man your HERO, and guys, don't try to FIX her, just be present and consistent with her. Ladies, the more you respect your man, the more he will cherish you. Fellas, the more you show up and make her feel safe, the more she will open to you.
If you are in a gay relationship the exact same thing goes for you. Instead of guy/girl, think feminine and masculine energy. The same principles apply.
If you are single, seek out a relationship with the intention of seeing how much LOVING and GROWING you are capable of. Do not seek out a relationship simply to get something from the other person.
And remember, the single most important part of a healthy and loving relationship is PICKING the RIGHT PERSON. Don't just settle; choose an OUTSTANDING and amazing person. And if you have to become an OUTSTANDING and AMAZING person to attract one, get busy growing!
I give everything to my partner; there are no boundaries.
I attract love and passion in every moment!
I attract a high quality partner who is passionate and helps me grow spiritually.

"All great changes are preceded by chaos."
- , best-selling author and speaker.
"The primary cause of unhappiness is not the situation, but your thoughts about it. Be aware of the thoughts you are thinking. Separate them from the situation, which is always neutral, which always is as it is."
- , best-selling author.
"I believe life is constantly testing us for our level of commitment, and life's greatest rewards are reserved for those who demonstrate a never-ending commitment to act until they achieve. This level of resolve can move mountains, but it must be constant and consistent. As simplistic as this may sound, it is still the common denominator separating those who live their dreams from those who live in regret."
- , is a best-selling author and speaker.
Mold the world you see around you from the inside out. Stay consistent with the vision you wish to create.
Your vision, your dream, your greatest desire will manifest in your life if you work at it and never give up.
Don't get stuck believing that you need specific people in order for your vision to come into reality. Many times we get an idea of who we "think" it should go and cut off many great opportunities.
The best manifestors thrive on living in the unknown. Sure, we all have a plan and a general idea about where we want to go, but the great's leave the outcome up to the Uni-verse. The greats show up and let go.
Know your vision is real. Act towards it daily. Create you world from the inside out. Show up and let go.
My only job is to show up and then let go.
I consistently apply myself towards making my dreams come true.
Each day is a brand new start.
"You desire to know the art of living, my friend? It is contained in one phrase: make use of suffering."
- Henri Frederic Amiel, was a Swiss philosopher, poet and critic.
"The strongest oak of the forest is not the one that is protected from the storm and hidden from the sun. It's the one that stands in the open where it is compelled to struggle for its existence against the winds and rains and the scorching sun.
- Napoleon Hill, author.
"People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within."
- Elizabeth Kubler-Ross, was a Swiss-born psychiatrist, a pioneer in Near-death studies and author.
Part of living a life that is directed by your inner wisdom & aimed toward your Highest Potential is realizing that not everyone is going to be supportive.
When you make new choices that are in alignment with a greater purpose than you have been living resistance is inevitable.
People that love you may not support your decision because they think that it's reckless, selfish or too dangerous. Other people may be jealous and try to keep you from seeing your own Light.
All of this is totally normal and to be expected on your journey.
My advice: Love them and pay NO attention. Everyone seems to think they know what's best for you, but the truth is no one knows what's better for you than you.
Live a Self Approved life and get ready for people not to like it. The flip side is that you can get excited about the new and supportive people who will flood into your life once you decide to change.
Change is a part of the journey. Let go of the old, embrace the new, know that people will think you're crazy. But in the end, the only crazy people are those who don't have what it takes to follow their dreams. Let them, but not you, be the ones who die wondering "What if?".
I am 100% Self Approved.
I welcome resistance as a natural part of the journey.
My inner voice guides me to places most will only read about.
I trust myself.
My inner voice is louder than all the haters. My inner voice is real.

"Synchronicity is an ever present reality for those who have eyes to see."
- Carl Jung, was a Swiss psychiatrist, an influential thinker and the founder of analytical psychology.
"There is no such thing as chance; and what seem to us merest accident springs from the deepest source of destiny."
- Friedrich Schiller, was a German poet, philosopher, historian, and playwright.
"Though we can't always see it at the time,if we look upon events with some perspective, we see things always happen for our best interests. We are always being guided in a way better than we know ourselves."
- Swami Satchidananda, was an Indian religious teacher, spiritual master and yoga adept.
"With Synchronicity, all the resources we need are made available to us at the precise moment that is appropriate. The people who come into our lives are the ones we need at that moment in time. Everything is perfect. We only need to recognise this to tune into the flow. Everything happens for a Reason and Every Experience is a Learning Experience."
- Alex Chua, author and life coach.
Only the untrained mind will discard coincidences as meaningless.
As Einstein said either "everything is a miracle or nothing is." The seeker, those on the Path know that there is deep and profound meaning behind even the most subtle events of our lives.
As you ask the Uni-verse for more and take action to become more see everything that happens after asking as an answer and response to your question. Look for the subtle answers that do not scream "LOOK AT ME", but instead drift into your life almost unnoticed.
The Uni-verse supports your Highest Potential by filling your life with synchronicity when you are on the path of your Highest Potential. If you are not experiencing almost daily synchronicities take a look at the action your taking and if it's in alignment with who you truly know yourself to be.
If you see stop signs everywhere change your actions. Synchronicity fills the life of those who are on the Path of their Highest Potential. Always has, always will.
Look around, what do you see?
I am receptive to the subtle messages of the Uni-verse and follow them with trust.
I see everything in my life as a miracle.
I walk the path of my Highest Potential.
I know that I am on the path of my Highest Potential because the action I take feels good and very exciting indeed!

The 570-foot-tall glass tower, called Antilia, "features a swimming pool, a health club, a salon and a mini-theatre," reports the Times of India. "The first six levels comprise the garage where more than 160 cars can be parked. Atop the parking lot is Antilia's lobby, which has nine elevators." The house also has a garden that can accommodate trees, according to the Telegraph, and a separate ballroom. About 600 staffers will be required to run Antilia, named after the mythical island in the Atlantic.

"Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what's going to happen next. Delicious ambiguity."
- Gilda Radner, was an American comedienne and actress, best known for her five years as part of the original cast of the NBC comedy series Saturday Night Live, for which she won an Emmy Award.
"Stand up to your obstacles and do something about them. You will find that they haven't half the strength you think they have."
- Norman Vincent Peale, was a Protestant preacher and author (most notably of The Power of Positive Thinking) and a progenitor of the theory of "positive thinking".
"If we do not rise to the challenge of our unique capacity to shape our lives, to seek the kinds of growth that we find individually fulfilling, then we can have no security: we will live in a world of sham, in which our selves are determined by the will of others, in which we will be constantly buffeted and increasingly isolated by the changes round us."
- Nena O'Neil
Blocks, struggles and set backs are not bad. No way. Keep the perspective that everything is working out FOR your Highest good. Not getting what you want can be a huge blessing. Do not judge a situation as bad because it's not going the way "you" want it to.
Instead, detach and see the bigger picture that is unfolding. Know that you are being guided by invisible hands to an outcome that is greater than you could imagine right now.
As they say, set backs are SET UPs for something better. Instead of offering resistance to the set backs and blocks of your life accept them as road signs pointing to go in another direction.
If you take this point of view your life will begin to flow with ease and things will start to work out in better and better ways.
See the big picture.
I see set backs as gifts.
I happen to life, life does not happen to me.
Things continue to work out better and better for me as I let go of needing to be right.
