Inspiring Insight to Transform Yourself, Your Relationship, and Your Life
By Barbara Rose PhD
“The beginning of personal growth is the idea of who, exactly, in fine detail, you wish to become.”
“Your highest and most exciting vision of self is paramount to your success, to finding the joy completely from within and not from any other person, place, or thing.”
“The moment you decide exactly where you are going, that is the precise moment your entire life changes course.”
“Passion with another cannot sustain a relationship. Passion exists in the moment, and this moment passes into a memory. In order to sustain a relationship, you must be passionately alive. As a result, you will continue to bring your passion to the one you love. You will not need it to come from another, because you will be sharing your abounding supply from within you.”
“Through the darkness of tragedy, you reach the dawn, which is the moment you decide it will never be this way again. This is the moment when you change the entire direction of the rest of your life because you refuse to go back to where you have just been.”
“Individual growth is a conscious choice. You must take what you have, and begin exactly where you are at this very moment to move solely in the direction of the life you want to have and the you you want to become.”
“Your personal power begins with the dawn of your realization of your personal worth.”
“We can dream and see ourselves where we will one day be, if only we decide it is to be so. The moment that decision is made, your entire life does an about face, a forward march, and you are flying toward your goals. Yet your goals are themselves the process during the journey, and not the end result. It is the love of the work that brings you pleasure,not the moment the workday is over.”
“If you truly want a better life, take your life into your own hands and create it for your very own self.”
“What others have does not matter. What matters is who you are. Once you decide who you are, you will become that person eventually. One moment at a time, your life will be renewed.”
“Remember that the only “lack” exists within the erroneous thoughts of the ego. There is zero lack in this universe – it is all consciousness, which produces energy which draws to you like a magnet exactly what you hold in your consciousness.”
“If you wish to better your life, then you must release all belief that by so doing you will be a better person. The key is in knowing that you are a supreme being just as you are and that “bettering your life” is just a means of self-expression. It is your divine expression to live according to your grandest preferences–not because it will make you better but because you are serving as a result of discovering and expressing the best you have within you.”
“You are here to experience yourself, not ‘fix’ yourself. You are not broken and you do not need to be fixed!”
“Whoever put you down during your life lied to you.
Your outer achievements or failures never constitute your REAL worth as a human being.
All you are comes from your heart.
All you will ever be you were already born to be.
It’s all inside of you, NOW.
Take a good look into your heart and when you find the goodness that’s already there you will know that all you need to do to feel better is to bring out all of that goodness already within you.”
“Here is how you will know if you are living your life purpose: just ask yourself one simple question: ‘Would you do what you are doing now for FREE for the rest of your life, if money was not an issue?’ When your answer is YES, then you are living the life you came into this life to live.”
“No matter what difficulty you are facing, it is coming from Divine Light to bring you to a higher place within. Write down every conceivable reason that this situation can contribute towards your growth. Write down every way this experience can possibly set the stage for serving to uplift others. When you are complete, and have come to the other side of this experience, you will then know “why” it happened.”
“Even the most daring and accomplished people have undergone tremendous difficulty. In fact, the more successful they became, the more they attributed their success to the lessons learned during their most difficult times. Adversity is our teacher. When we view adversity as a guide towards grater inner growth, we will then learn to accept the wisdom our soul came into this life to learn.”
