One and Only YOU!
James T Moore 

Every single blade of grass
and every flake of snow
Is just a wee bit different
There’s no two alike you know

From something small like gains of sand
To each gigantic star
all were made with this in mind to be just what they are
How foolish then to imitate
How useless to pretend

Since each of us comes from a mind
Who’s ideas never end
There’ll only be just one of me to show what I can do
And you should likewise be VERY PROUD
There’s only one of you!
James T. Moore

Comfort Zone
Author Unknown 

I used to have a comfort zone, where I knew I could not fail
The same four walls and busy work, were really more like jail.
I longed so much to do the things I’d never done before,
But I stayed inside my comfort zone and paced the same old floor.

I said it didn’t matter, that I wasn’t doing much.
I said I didn’t care for things like diamonds, cars and such.
I claimed to be so busy with the things inside my zone.
But deep inside, I longed, for some victory of my own. I couldn’t let my life go by, just watching others win.

I held my breath and stepped outside to let the change begin.
I took a step, with a strain I’d never felt before,
I kissed my comfort zone goodbye and closed and locked the door.
If you are in a comfort zone, afraid to venture out,

Remember that all winners at one time were filled with doubt.
A step or two and words of praise can make your dreams come true.
So greet your future with a smile, SUCCESS IS THERE FOR YOU!

Secret Thoughts
Ella Wilcox 1855-1919

“I hold it true that thoughts are things;
they’re endowed with bodies and breath and wings
And that we send them forth to fill
the world with good results, or ill.

That which we call our secret thought
Speeds forth to earth’s remotest spot,
Leaving its blessings or its woes
Like tracks behind it as it goes.

We build our future, thought by thought,
For good or ill, yet know it not.
Yet so the universe was wrought.
Thought is another name for fate;

Choose then thy destiny and wait,
For love brings love and hate brings hate.”

*******************************************

Curious how we acquire wisdom!

Over and Over again, the same truth is thrust under our very noses

we encounter it in action

we are admonished of it

we read it in the written word

We suffer the experience; we gradually assent to the advice

we approve, intellectually, the written word.

But nothing happens inside us.

Then, one day,

some trivial experience or word or encounter stops us short

A gleam of illumination penetrates the depth of our consciousness

We see!

Usually it is but a glimpse;
but on rare occasions a brilliant flash reveals truth fully formed

And we marvel that this understanding escaped us so long.”

Stewart Edward White and Harwood White

*******************************************

A new concept to come up with new ideas each day?
Try it and you will see that spirit takes you away
With love and gratitude expecting them to come
You may be in the shower, driving or even taking a run

Record them in some manner – essential it’s true
Whether on paper or recorder that is up to you
Look all around you and know that it is a fact
Before it was manifested – someone experienced lack

Is there a better way – is a great question to ask
Have you looked at the symbol on the fed-ex box?

Do you see an arrow? There is no arrow you declare
You look at this logo – you look everywhere!
If you see what you believe and not what it is true
The answers might be hiding right in front of you!

 Once I tell you where it is hidden – you will know
And share it with others – a key to grow

With new ideas the concept is exactly the same
This isn’t bologna – it isn’t a game
Think of a chair that you are sitting in now
Before it was a chair – some simply asked how

 Consider the comfort of a rock, a stump or a tree
Your butt could be hurting, a clue given to thee

 Discomfort is one indication given to you
It is up to you to be aware and act on the clue
Not everyone gets the same bit of news
Not everyone has the same point of views

Education in different areas — opens your mind
Awareness is the key – that will help you find
Look all around you in every nook and cranny
You must take action – get off your fanny

You are very special – know that is true
There is only one creature that is just like you
As you look at the firsts of anything that’s been done
Passion and desire are forces like the sun

We always take note of the actions first done
Thinking at first this isn’t much fun
Or somebody said there is no possible way
What would it take to make this the day?

 Roger Banister with burnt legs broke the four minute mile
He did it with confidence spirit and smile

Once people knew it was possible too
It was no big deal – and that is your clue
Look near, on, over, above, under, in, around, by and through
Look beyond your idea until you see the millions it offers you.

Once something is created for sure
Belief is easy – it is not even a chore
Inductive reasoning was given to you
Taking action is what you must do!

When the Wright Brothers decided a machine could fly
They looked for solutions – continuing to ask why
Failures were simply ways that didn’t work
They continued to search for any little quirk

Words that are now go from keyboard and screen in a flow
Are coming from higher power and this I truly know
The credit for each and every word is not mine
As long as it is shared with you – I am totally fine

 I love when I write things and then with surprise get to read
The words that began with one little seed
A thought that was given to me for the ride
Enjoying the treasure with all kinds of pride

 Thank you – in advance for the ideas on this page
Thank you for showing me to be so sage
No longer trading money for time
No longer a victim, complain or whine

 Look near, on, over, above, under, in, around, by and through
Look beyond your idea until you see the millions it offers you. 

Think of the computer, the iPad, the mouse
The pool or the hot tub and even your house
Not enough room on this little floor?
Add another and maybe a door!

What are you working on and what do you do?
What would make your life easier? That is a clue
Discontent? Be creative and do not complain
If that is what you do – there is nothing to gain.

 What could be done? What else could we do?
These are questions that might work for you!

Look near, on, over, above, under, in, around, by and through
Look beyond your idea until you see the millions it offers you.

The Lights Seem Brighter

Jan Payne (12-03)

Christmas is a holiday for kids of all ages
People often spend at least two weeks wages

The lights seem brighter before Christmas Day

The energy is higher in most every way

Anticipation, expectations for material things to appear

It seems to embellish this time of the year

The shopping is fun and the houses look pretty

Most everything is lit up in the entire city

We’ve asked lots of questions and shopped for the best

We’re hopeful our presents will pass their test

The joy of giving is really a spiritual pleasure

It is psychic income and it’s hard to measure

Remember the cycle of giving is only complete

When the person receiving doesn’t ask for a receipt

Beautiful packages spread under the tree

Each kid is wondering which one is for me?

Excitement is building as the paper is torn

Their joy is measured by the expression that’s worn

We can tell if they’re happy disappointed or sad

We can tell if our choice was a good one or bad

So keep this is mind as you open your box

Even if it is only a pair of unmatched sox

Year End Poem 2010 – Jan Payne

It is time to celebrate the 1st day of 2010

So please get ready with paper and pen

Write out 101 things that you really want to do

it will accelerate your achievements, this much is true

Create a vision of where you’d like to be

Dreams are important for you and for me

Think and Grow Rich is what we are told

We should learn to think before we get too old!

“Most people don’t think.” Earl Nightingale said.

“They’d be speechless if they whispered what they had in their head.”

Successful people write goals four times a year.

Let’s make a decision to trade action for fear.

Right now sit down with your paper and pen

If you are thinking I’ll do it later…please think again!

Get your emotions involved and let your thoughts flow

Change is inevitable, now ready, set, go!

Decide to make good choices again and again

Then you will have a happy healthy and prosperous 2010

Without mixing EMOTION and FAITH with your words,
You will experience NO desirable results.
Your subconscious mind recognizes and acts upon
ONLY thoughts which have been well-mixed with emotion or feeling
Napoleon Hill

*******************************************

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves,
Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking
so that other people won’t feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine, as children do.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God
that is within us.
It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine,
we unconsciously give other
people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear,
our presence automatically liberates others.”
by Marianne Williamson

Ability may get you to the top,

A Man Needs to Know

A man needs to know that he’s bad and he’s good,
He can be what he hopes, he can be understood.
A man needs to feel he can conquer a fall,
For a man who can kneel has the strength to stand tall.

A man needs to know he can share and confide,
Even though he’s frightened way down deep inside.
For sometimes a man must sink terribly low,
Before he discovers how high he can go.

A man needs to know at the end of his rope,
He can handle his fears, he can build on his hope.
A man must believe he can change when he must,
He can learn to receive, he can learn how to trust.

And why must a man feel afraid and alone,
When each of us has the same fears of his own.
For sometimes a man must sink terribly low,
Before he discovers how high he can go.

A man has to live when it’s painful to try,
For a man needs to laugh and a man needs to cry.
A man has a need to strive and prevail,
He must learn to succeed and find out why he failed.

To carry his crown and to fill-up his cup,
Sometimes he drops down so that he can reach up.
For sometimes a man must sink terribly low,
Before he discovers how high he can go.

C. W. Longenecker

If you think you are beaten, you are,
If you think you dare not, you don’t
If you like to win, but you think you can’t,
It is almost certain you won’t.
If you think you’ll lose, you’re lost
For out of the world we find,
Success begins with a fellow’s will—
It’s all in the state of mind.
If you think you are outclassed, you are,
You’ve got to think high to rise,
You’ve got to be sure of yourself before
You can ever win a prize.
Life’s battles don’t always go
To the stronger or faster man,
But soon or late the man who wins
Is the man WHO THINKS HE CAN!

*******************************************

You are always a valuable, worthwhile human being, not because
anybody says so, not because you’re successful, not because you
make a lot of money, but because you decide to believe it and
for no other reason. –   Dr. Wayne Dyer

When riches begin to come they
Come so quickly, in such great abundance, that one
wonders where they have been hiding during all those lean years

Let us not look back in anger, Nor forward in fear,
But around us in awareness.
–Leland Val Van De Wall

*******************************************

Lack and limitation can only exist
when we make room for them in our mind.
– Bob Proctor

*******************************************

ANYBODY can WISH
for riches, and most people do, but only a few
know that a definite plan, plus a BURNING DESIRE
for wealth, are the only
dependable means of accumulating wealth.
Napoleon Hill

*******************************************

Any idea that is held in the mind
that is either feared or revered will,
begin at once to clothe itself in the most
convenient and appropriate physical forms available
Andrew Carnegie

*******************************************

Ultimately, man should not ask what the meaning of his life is,
but rather must recognize that it is he who is asked.
In a word, each man is questioned by life;
and he can only answer to life by answering for his own life;
to life he can only respond by being responsible.” – Victor Frankl

For my Mom on her 95th Birthday!

This little poem is short and sweet
when it comes to moms YOU can’t be beat
You’ve got a place for everything and this is true
She has a special place in her heart for each one of you!

Your wisdom in words are often expressed
Most everyone you meet is duly impressed.
If you have an ache or a pain you won’t tell
You put a smile on your face and say “oh well!”

The doctor looks at you and then at your chart
He insists there is no way that you are an old fart
Please share your secrets and continue to do
The very same things that have worked so well you for you

Today is your birthday and you requested no fuss;
You know that is the wrong thing to say to us
Leon and Gaby said, “we wanted to do this for you’
So  please enjoy this day, your family and friends too

With much gratitude for all that you are!
We love you mom, YOU are our STAR!!
-Jan Payne (4-18-2010)

This version, often called “Do Good” or “Do Good Anyway”, is found on the wall in the home for children that Mother Teresa established in Calcutta. The Original Version called “The Paradoxical Commandments,” was written by Dr. Kent M. Keith as part of a piece for student leaders.

People are often unreasonable, irrational, and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.

If you are successful, you will win some unfaithful friends and some genuine enemies. Succeed anyway.

If you are honest and sincere people may deceive you. Be honest and sincere anyway.

What you spend years creating, others could destroy overnight. Create anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness, some may be jealous. Be happy anyway.

The good you do today, will often be forgotten. Do good anyway.

Give the best you have, and it will never be enough. Give your best anyway.

In the final analysis, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.

Year End Poem – 2013
Jan Payne – 12-31-12 

 

Could this be the year your dream comes true?
When all the pieces fall into place for you?
Your vision has been written with emotion and details too
Your heart raced each morning; a focused list of things to do

You listened to gurus and took copious notes
Kept your ego in check and read positive quotes
You were grateful for all things, both good and bad
You sought out the lesson and never got mad

You raised your awareness and consciousness too
Your intentions were clear and you knew what to do
You did meditation and changed your point of view
You even faced your worst fears and certainly grew

 You did random acts of kindness whenever you could
You paid for someone’s coffee and even chopped wood
Saying ‘thank you’ quite often was never a chore
Opportunities seemed to come to you from every door

 Could this be the year your dream comes true?
When all the pieces fall into place for you?
It’s going to be the year we will refer to as 2013
Yes this could be the best year you’ve ever seen!
