The greatest enemy of success is fear. It is time that you start interfering with your fear. We get stuck in a trap that can only be evaded, and or broken out of through your decision to live life with courage without fear! I know it is not easy I struggle with it daily but I am not going to stop and neither should you!
Nate wraps up the motivational series with good reminders and teaches us to remember how we obtained success in order to rinse and repeat using similar processes.
You have finally reached the point in your journey in which you truly feel you have found success. Now, the question is are you going to become complacent? Or, are you going to continue reaching for bigger and better goals?
Successful people are told no more times on their life than those who are just getting by. If you want success you have to take it; that said people will not let you take it without a fight. We cannot be afraid of being told no.
Now what? is part 1 of a seven part series that will take you from your current position in life to the position you desire. This is real inspired life altering information.
Nate loves to motivate people. Every so many episodes Nate focuses on bringing a motivational talk to his listeners. Nate talks about the power of the mind, body, and spirit, how these work together. Nate talks about how you can create your reality out of your desires. Listen and be blessed.
A major difference between successful people and the 9-5ers is successful people do not spend much time complaining and maintain a positive optimistic attitude.
This means just like you at the moment I work a “regular” job. But, I am always looking for the come up. Always ready to jump on opportunity. Always ready to take risk and know I may not be rewarded. Always ready to work hard chassing my passions. Yes we do what we have to in order to put food on the table. But do not settle.
Understand and know that something is on the way. Do not just sit by and think that success will never happen to me. How did those who have what you desire get there anyway? Live with unshakeable faith, dream big, remain humble and when you make it, give back to the people.
Nate puts a interesting twist on the parable of the wedding feast. Nate also talks about our mental health and gun control issues.
The writer of Hebrews states: “Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses.” ~Hebrews 12:1
Sometimes I wonder what these witnesses think of us? If you did not know these are the ones who have gone on before us. They lived this life in these bodies, and are now glorified.
I like to look at it as a pyramid, like one on the one dollar bill. It has four sides, north, east, south, and west. At the bottom is us. Its hard for us to understand someone on the north side if we are on the south. It is such a great distance. An example is the different cultures, races, ethnicities, religions. At the bottom someone on the east must travel a great distance to understand the west.
The intetesting thing is the higher up the pyramid you go the easier it is to understand each other. The distance from one another becomes shorter and shorter.
At the top is the eye of God, this is also where these witnesses peer from heavenly windows. They are probably sad, at the same time understand how it once was to live at the bottom without understanding.
Today on this earth we may not be able to reach the eye of God. What we can do is let go of our divisive nature through prayer, meditation, and right action, moving higher up the “pyramid.” By doing so you will be closer to your fellows who are different from you. You will be able to start seeing not with human eyes but with eyes of God.
Have a blessed and safe Holloween my friends.

Rise and shine! Happy Monday my friends! Most of you resent that statement. I completely understand, we are on our way to jobs we hate and wish it would be Friday all over again. I guess the first question is, why do you hate or despise your job? If it is that bad quit.
See I believe that we as a society should not have to work crap jobs and if we do we should strive to be the best we can. I believe it was Dr. King who said, “if you are a garbage man be the best garbage man you can be.” As for me today I am going to perform customer service because that’s what I currently do. I am blessed to have a job, I will try my best to give the best customer service possible.
So again it is Monday, but that does not have to be a bad or depressing thing.
Alan Watts said: “Nirvana is right where you are, provided that you don’t object to it.”
Don’t object to what is before you, be content and happy in your situation, it will not always be so bad. In other words it could be worse.
The apostle Paul said: “I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances.” Philippians 4:11
Today be content, allow heaven to kiss your lips and the Spirit guide your feet. Today, if you choose, you are blessed!
