The World Needs Kindness… NOW!

TP and water

A few days ago, I went to a local store in search of toilet paper thanks to the coronavirus epidemic. I found what I needed and stood in a long line to checkout. A lady who had about 25 items stood in front of me. I had two items. She turned around and said she would allow me to get in front of her since I only had two things. I refused, but when she insisted, I decided to take her up on her offer.

While it is not my intention, I must inject the obvious racial and cultural differences between myself and this lady. I am a middle-aged black man. She was an older Asian woman. Honestly, I don’t think two people could be more different. I guess that’s how it was supposed to be. How did we end up in the same lane at the same time? A five second deviation by either one of us would have prevents us from meeting in that line.

Remember, we were amid panic buying in an overcrowded store during a pandemic. In this backdrop, a stranger did something nice for me: she let me move ahead of her in a grocery line.  I bought my two items, and then I really looked at this lady. She was somewhat weak, due to her age. She was alone, and she looked tense. The strain of the coronavirus outbreak has people upset.

Something strange came over me. I felt the need to reciprocate for the act of kindness she gave to me. I saw that she had a case of water. I told the cashier to ring it up and I would pay for it. I told the lady I was about to pay for her water. She smiled and thanked me. She moved forward to make contact, but probably realized we were warned about keeping a safe social distance. She waved happily. I waved back and took my items and left.

It was then that I realized it. Two complete strangers, both in the same place at the same time, shared two acts of kindness neither person asked for. For me it was therapeutic. After all, we were in the midst of the coronavirus scare. At a time when we see so many people going for themselves to protect themselves, this dear woman and I did the opposite. We helped each other.

The world needs kindness… NOW! Not because of the pandemic we are currently facing. We need kindness because we, regardless of our race, culture, or status, are in the same boat every day. We are one. It should not take a time of crisis to figure this out. We should live it every day. We should help each other. We should support each other. We should love each other.

I sincerely hope the woman in the store remains healthy and unaffected by the virus. I hope that she felt the same level of joy when I purchased her water that I felt when she let me move ahead of her in line. It was touching. It was inspiring. It was beautiful. It proved that the smallest actions could make a big difference. If we all put this into practice daily, what a better world we could create. Let’s go…

I am challenging you to serve. I am challenging you to offer help. I am challenging you to encourage others. It starts with you. It starts with me. It starts with us. The world needs kindness… NOW!

2020: Use Your Vision

An excerpt from the book: Defining Success: One Word at a Time by Gary A. McAbee…

DS Vision

2020: Use Your VISION

 

We have been given the power to see in advance what may become our future. It is called vision. We can use our vision to see victory. We can use our vision to see the results of activating our faith. We can use our vision to create” if” statements that have meaning and purpose. We can use our vision to dream about the possibilities of a brighter tomorrow. It should probably scare, and then excite us when we realize we really can see the future! It does not matter how far away we believe we are from the future we want. We can see our ultimate destination: success.

One of the greatest gifts given to man is our ability to imagine, and use what we “see” to create a vision. To be clear, I need to establish a clear distinction between the vision of the eyes (natural), and the vision of the mind (spiritual). These are two totally different things that can disrupt the process of success if they are not separated. Remember this fact: we cannot trust the natural vision we receive from our eyes. It is created for us. On the other hand, we can trust the spiritual vision we receive from our mind. It is created by us. It is a gift given to us from our Creator.

Wait! We cannot trust what we see with our eyes? This is 100% correct. For all the non-believers, I need you to complete a short exercise. Use your natural vision to look (very quickly) in the direction of the sun. How big does it appear to be? Now find out the real dimensions of the sun. The object you saw and thought you knew based on your natural vision is actually a lot larger than it appears to be. Your natural vision let you down in terms of identifying the true size of the sun. If it can let you down here, believe that it can, and it does, let you down all the time.

Instead, we need to focus on the spiritual vision we create with our minds. This is the ability to create through our imagination anything we can conceive. It is a scary thought that we have the ability to put ourselves in any situation and visualize it over and over again. Yet this universal skill is right there for the taking. In fact, we use our spiritual vision all the time without even realizing it. Today, you visualized yourself doing something in your mind that was totally different than what you were actually doing. You might have seen something from yesterday. You might have seen an event in the future. Either way, you used your spiritual vision to see something that is not actually happening in the present moment.

Here comes the challenging part… how can we use our spiritual vision to change our reality and see victory? Vision though our imagination can be a great thing, but it can also be frightening. It all depends on how we use our spiritual vision. If we see dreadful things, dark clouds, and doom and gloom, then our reality will reflect dreadful things, dark clouds, and doom and gloom. Even if this is fleeting, the fact is the damage has already been done. The spiritual vision we saw becomes fixed. Next, we allow our eyes to look in the natural world for the despair and negative energy we have already pictured.

On the other hand, you also have the ability to use spiritual vision as a seed planted to do great things. If we see bright things, beautiful clouds, and sun and fun, then our reality will reflect bright things, beautiful clouds, and sun and fun. Even if this is fleeting, the result created though our vision has already occurred. The spiritual vision we saw becomes fixed. Next, we allow our eyes to look in the natural world for the encouragement and positive energy we have already pictured. Yes, positive energy is always present and easy to find. If you find that hard to believe, we have several concepts to come that can help you find the victory that your spiritual vision can uncover and bring into existence.

If you’re a little skeptical, trust me I understand, but you must remember that the seeds of victory have already been planted inside you. Have faith! You have explored the possibilities of “if.” You have always had the ability to dream and it is in your nature to be a dreamer. Now develop your spiritual vision. If you are like me, when you completed your “if statements, you used your spiritual vision and probably did not realize it. I could see the listing of my book as a best seller. I could see myself taking pictures in front of the pyramids and walking on the Great Wall. I could see myself in a receiving line to greet the former President. I am sure you envisioned what it will feel like when your wishes come true as well. This is the power of the human mind in full effect, the power of spiritual vision!

When you completed the “Wish Upon a Star” exercise, you used your spiritual vision and probably did not realize it. I sincerely hope that you took a little time to think as you wrote your responses. If you did, your spiritual vision should have allowed you to see how you can make those dreams come true. Remember the Law of Attraction and how it works. When we permit ourselves to see something yet to exist, we call the things associated with that outcome into the natural world. This sharpens our focus. It changes our sight from the natural to the spiritual so that we can see everything, including things previously missed or not originally converted by our natural vision.

An example of natural vision converted into spiritual vision that comes to mind is my recent purchase of a Ford Fusion. Unless you are a car enthusiast or highly observant, I am sure you would have a hard time spotting a Ford Fusion on the road. That is, unless you were looking for it or somehow aware of the appearance of the car. Once I purchased my Fusion, all of a sudden they were everywhere! My natural vision spotted the car. My new spiritual vision allowed me to see clearly what was already there. I call this hidden in plain sight. Just like seeing that car, your victory is also hidden in plain sight. Use your spiritual vision to see it and the Law of Attraction will draw it to you.

We must learn how to see ourselves with our outcome in mind. In other words, we can use our spiritual vision to see success. Contrary to what we are taught, we should see things with the end result in mind first, and then call into existence things required to get to it. For example, if I have the spiritual vision to see this book as a best seller, then I must allow myself to see what that scenario looks like before it happens. This vision should serve as the spark to do all that is required to reach my end result. It should also provide plenty of motivation to work as long and as hard as it takes to get the job done. In fact, the work might even become easy because the result looks so good!

Allow your spiritual vision to go to work. Allow it to create the reality you want to see in the natural world. You have the power to do this! Visualize what you want to achieve your victory. What does it look like? What things can you see yourself doing to make it happen? Visualize yourself doing the hard work required to be successful with a smile on your face. It will allow you to smile (at least a little bit) even when it is time to put in the serious work. I guarantee the heavy lifting will be a little lighter if you visualize yourself getting through it to achieve success!

Affirmation: My gift of spiritual vision will work to attract the resources readily available to achieve the ultimate victory I will attain.

Take Care of Your Self

Self T shirt

Self-worth

Do you know what you are worth? You should understand that you were created differently than every other person. This means you are special, unique, and gifted in ways that no one else can claim. If you ever question your self-worth, find someone that believes in you or something that reminds you of your talent. Your worth is infinite.

Self-esteem

Once you know your worth, you must work on how you feel about yourself. Who do you see when you look in the mirror? You should see someone who is good as is regardless of your situation or circumstances. You must believe are important, respected, and loved. Ind things that help you build up your self-esteem. You must believe you are worthy.

Self-talk

Pay attention to the things you say about yourself to yourself. Do you tell yourself good things or bad things? Remember, you are always talking to yourself and always listening to what you say. Therefore, the things you say must always be uplifting. Your self-talk must be encouraging so that it helps you remain positive and upbeat.

Self-care

You must start by taking care of your needs first. This includes your physical, mental, and spiritual needs that affect your health. You must take care of your body by monitoring what you consume. You must also take care of your mind by absorbing things that will benefit your health and well-being. No one should be more invested in your self-care than you.

Self-confidence

You must understand that you have what you need to be successful. You are good enough. Build self-confidence by reminding yourself who you are and what you can do. Use your self-talk.  It takes a lot of positive energy to come to this realization. Next, act on it so that you can move forward. Being more self-confident requires getting out of your comfort zone and taking action.

Self-respect

Develop a code of ethics that you will not cross. This is how you respect yourself. Avoid situations you know are not good for you. This includes people, certain places, and activities that will lead you astray. Listen to your conscience: that inner voice that tells you what’s right and what’s wrong. It will help you keep your self-respect intact.

Self-awareness

It is important to know how your behavior affects people and situations. Are you doing the right things? Are you saying the right things? How are people reacting and responding to you? You have a filter that tells you if your words and actions are appropriate and properly received. Use it. Again, listen to your inner voice for guidance.

Self-control

We all have limits and boundaries. It takes a great deal of energy to stay within those limits. Our world is full of temptation. Try not to fall victim to things that are attractive, but not necessarily good for you. It is a constant struggle. Yet staying in control allows you to focus on the things you need to do and say. No one can do this for you.

Self-improvement

By nature, we are all flawed individuals. The first step to self-improvement is recognizing this fact. Even if you have expert-knowledge, there is something else you can learn. There is also someone who knows more than you. Therefore, we all should seek ways to get better. Education and learning are processes that should never stop. Neither should your desire to get better. 

Self-help

There are so many ways to seek knowledge. There is plenty of book knowledge. The internet has an endless amount of information.  There are people can learn from too. However, the only way to learn is to seek.  Self-help requires you to get out there, look for information, test it, and use it as needed to improve your life and your experiences. You must learn and continue to learn for the rest of your life.

Self-education

The formal education offered in our school system is not enough. You must embark on teaching yourself. A good place to start is through external sources. Read everything. Another part of this process is learning from your personal experiences. See everything. No one else can see these lessons from your viewpoint. They are invaluable. What did you learn today?

Self-direction

You should know what direction your life is taking, and where you want to go in the future. Do you have a short-term plan for your life? Do you think about where you want to be 5-10 years from now? Without an idea, you will not be able to direct yourself toward the future you seek. Write down goals. Give yourself deadlines. This is how you move forward and in the right direction.

Self-reflection

A part of this process is taking time to honestly assess where you are and what you are doing. Are you on the right track, or off-course? This is a great time to review your goals and plans for making them happen. Reward yourself when you hit your target. Learn and improve when you don’t. Commit to trying again. Giving up if you don’t like what you see is not an option. Instead, redirect, refocus, and recommit.

Self-sacrifice

To get what you want, sometimes you must give something up for a cause bigger than yourself. You might have to help someone else get what they want, as a lesson to help you later. You might need to pause your efforts, to meet immediate needs. Often, the times you sacrifice your needs, you get time to see things from a different perspective. You get time to rest during your personal journey, temporarily, when you help others. Look for these opportunities.

Self-sufficient

In the end, the only one who can help you is you. You must learn how to depend on yourself. Learn how to support yourself because sometimes that’s the only support you will get. Taking care or yourself requires learning what you need when you need it. Next you must figure out how to satisfy your needs. You must also pat yourself on the back and pick yourself up when you fall short. Remember, you have been given everything you need to take care of yourself.

Self-employment

You are your boss. You work for you. Now that you know this, how can you be highly productive so you can be successful? Your life is your job, and the only one who can guide you is you. The only one who pays you is you. The only one who is responsible for your outcomes is you. Take care of yourself so that you can do a great job for yourself. You are self-employed.

 

Take care of yourself!

2020 Is Four Months Away: The Time is NOW!

Now

I can vividly remember some of the hysteria surrounding January 1, 2000. Do you remember Y2K? It was based off the erroneous theory that computers would not be able to process the date 01-01-2000. As a result, the world’s technological systems were supposed to crash, and wipe out all humanity because of our dependence on data. That was 20 years ago.

2020 Is Four Months Away: The Time is NOW!

I can vividly remember some of the hysteria surrounding December 21, 2012. Do you remember this date on the Mayan calendar? It was based off the erroneous theory that the world would end on this date because of the Mayan calendar. The end of the world  was predicted to happen thousands of years ago on this date. That was 8 years ago.

2020 Is Four Months Away: The Time is NOW!

Even if you cannot remember these two “events”, please understand how time has marched past these two dates swiftly. We have moved forward in time. Before we know it, we will be able to say “remember back in 2019 when… that was 20 years ago!” Our recall of time will happen like this, because there is an old adage that applies here. The older we get, the faster the years seem to pass.

2020 Is Four Months Away: The Time is NOW!

What this means is NOW is the time for you and I to decide what we want to do with the time we have left. NOW is the time to write and execute your plan. NOW is the time to start a business. NOW is the time to take that trip. NOW is the time eat the cake. NOW is the time to start living, or just start living a better life.

2020 Is Four Months Away: The Time is NOW!

Time will not wait for you. It never does. So why should anyone wait for the right time? I can guarantee someone reading this right NOW has talked themselves out of doing something because it was not the right time. It never seems to be the right time. But the truth is no one knows when it’s the right time, so the right time is always NOW.

2020 Is Four Months Away: The Time is NOW!

Remember this fact: nothing in life is guaranteed, including the time you have left to live. Therefore, since the moment we were born, we have been running out of time. This should be enough to get us to think about what we do from here on out. We need to use our time wisely. What will you do today to start making the most of your time?

2020 Is Four Months Away: The Time is NOW!

We love to use dates as reminders, and in some cases, warnings about what is to come. Many people thought January 1, 2000 would trigger a financial collapse. Twelve years later, some thought December 21, 2012 would be the end of the world. Perhaps it’s time to think of the date January 1, 2020 as a new beginning instead of an ominous warning. It should be a date to signal your opportunity to get started. Next year is your chance to do it NOW!

2020 Is Four Months Away: The Time is NOW!

Four Mental Laws: Use ‘Em or Lose’Em

The laws we are all aware of are the laws created by man. However, there is another set of laws, given by God, that exist for our benefit. We should be aware of these mental laws. The mental laws exist, and they are timeless. They are keys to becoming successful and achieving goals for millions of people. In fact, as we study the highest achievers, we learn that they believe in these four mental laws and put them into practice. The four mental laws are a major part of their success. Once again, if we all learn and apply these concepts, they will lead to success.

 

The best ways to learn the laws that follow is the old-fashioned way: read the definition followed by an example. The reader should put some thought into each law and understand the power and impact of each concept. Then, the laws should be tested, either by putting in your own examples or looking out for the laws at work in the future.

 

Law of Attraction

 

The law of attraction means we can bring into existence the things we want in life. The law of attraction works like magnets. Two magnets will align and attach to each other on given sides based on their magnetism. The law works in various ways in life, but the concept remains the same: each person can get whatever they want in life. This should be read again. We all are “magnets” who can attract things.

 

LEARN TO ATTRACT POSITIVE THINGS TO SEE POSITIVE RESULTS!

 

Law of Practice

 

The law of practice means that true success requires constant practice. Practice means work. We must put in our fair share of work to become successful. This is a timeless principle that is etched in stone. Everyone, regardless of race, who has achieved any goal, has used this concept. The law of practice can be best described by using an old saying: “practice makes perfect.”

 

 PRACTICE AND YOU WILL SEE POSITIVE RESULTS IMMEDIATELY!

 

Law of Reciprocity

 

The law of reciprocity means what you give will come back to you abundantly. Giving is a concept that many African Americans do not understand. It is a powerful concept that we must tap into to become successful. Simply put, you get what you give.  Another way to look at this law is karma: what comes around goes around. We must remember two important points:

  • you should not give ONLY because you will get something in return; instead give for the sake of helping others.
  • you should not take from others and expect to get something in return; this never works.

 GIVE ABUNDANTLY TO BE REWARDED FOR PROVIDING SERVICE!

 

Law of Expectancy

 

The law of expectancy means whatever you expect will come to pass in your life. It is perhaps the most powerful of the four laws. If you have high expectations, you will seek ways to fulfill those expectations. On the other hand, if you have low expectations, you will seek ways to fulfill those expectations. The goal is to continually raise your expectations, then your mind will work toward making those expectations your reality.

 

EXPECT SUCCESS AND YOU WILL BECOME SUCCESSFUL!

Body Language 101: Making Great First Impressions that Last

Body Language 101: Making Great First Impressions that Last

Handshake

Everyone must master the subtle art of improving our body language to promote a better image in our society. Body language speaks volumes about how a person is feeling, their outlook on life, and how they conduct their business. A concept directly related to body language is making a first impression. First impressions are extremely important; those who leave good impressions will be more likely to achieve success than those who do not.

There are many skills that will improve our body language. When combining proper body language with using proper English and dressing for success, there is no doubt that African Americans can compete, and win in any situation.  We simply need to master the skills that so many high achievers use to guarantee their success. The following skills are keys to improving our body language.

Demonstrate Good Posture

We should stand up straight and hold our head high. When sitting, we should lean slightly forward and be sure to be upright without slouching. These actions show confidence. They present a positive outlook and give off a good first impression.

Maintain Proper Eye Contact

Those who make good eye contact are perceived as trustworthy. We should learn how to look others directly in the eye when speaking. This is especially important when we are trying to make a favorable impression.

Give a Firm Handshake

A firm handshake shows confidence. It also shows strength and eagerness. Those who give firm handshakes are taken seriously and they are well respected.

Use Proper Hand Gestures

Hand gestures suggest excitement and energy. When speaking, use proper hand gestures to make points clear and emphasize ideas. Be careful not to constantly move the hands because it portrays nervousness. Use hand movements that come naturally; do not force them.

Add Appropriate Responses

When engaged in conversations, use appropriate responses that include both verbal and non-verbal reactions. Such reactions include appropriate facial expressions, short pauses before speaking, and verbal responses to show that you are listening. Proper responses lead to more meaningful conversations.

Don’t Forget to Smile

A smile works regardless of the situation at hand. It disarms people and gives the most positive response. Those who smile often are more likely to demonstrate their positive outlook. People tend to respond favorably to people who smile.

Each of these concepts will allow us to give off the correct body language and make better impressions. Everyone should put these things into practice immediately. They could be the difference between opening doors to new opportunities or closing doors to lost opportunities.
