You are Royalty from My Heart with Robin Sharma

You are royalty. A sovereign over the empires of potential within you. The hardships of life may have hypnotized you into forgetfulness of your greatness. The pain of dreams gone bad may have shuttered your passion and smothered your conviction. The arrows of jealous critics may have caused you to imprison the hero within. Please know: this day is a fresh chance. A miracle in waiting. This moment is a vast gift.

This minute presents you with a blank canvas of acute possibility and breathtaking opportunity… …to reclaim the royalty you have been born into. To conquer vast new lands of compassion, creativity, audacity and humanity.

You being alive today is no accident. There is a reason you are reading this. And a readiness deep within you to shed the shackles of past pain to make your rise to a new way of seeing the rest of your life.

Rise up! Own your birthright for your unique form of greatness that we of the world demand from you.

Be a light. Spot the gorgeousness of the future you can make, via the right thinking, speaking, behaving and producing.

One small step–done in a single minute of glory on this gift of a day–will be the beginning of a new way of being, when done consistently and devotedly.

You deserve to remember your highness. To know the privileges of your royal–and finest self. And as you make the leap from your current life to the life that longs for you to know it, I will watch your star blaze.

Because that’s what I do.

And we all will applaud your bravery.

Much love + with boundless belief in the brilliance that you are,


Being Thankful Fosters Happiness with Will Marre:

PONDER THIS… “Gratitude can transform common days into thanksgiving, turn routine jobs into joy, and change ordinary opportunities into blessings.” –William Arthur Ward

RESEARCH SAYS: We have some pretty strange holiday traditions…dressing up in costumes and going from door to door asking for candy, a big bunny hiding colorful eggs, a leprechaun leaving a gold treasure…you get the idea. But the Pilgrims were really onto something with Thanksgiving. Being thankful, after all, fosters happiness. People who are grateful are likely to be happier, hopeful and energetic, and they possess positive emotions more frequently. Individuals also tend to be more spiritual or religious, forgiving, empathetic and helpful, while being less depressed, envious or neurotic. In fact, gratitude can increase your happiness by 25%.

TRY THIS: Don’t forget what Thanksgiving is really all about and try to carry the spirit of Thanksgiving into your life every day.
