I appreciate the view of another commenter, Joan, who shared this remark — and it could apply to actually walking a labyrinth, as well, I’m sure: “It’s about slowing down, reflecting, being.” Simply reading that keyed me in to why I selected to read this piece, and ah, I’ve been well served.

Cretan Labyrinth Cretan Labyrinth

A book I read recently featured a labyrinth and I got to wondering about them. Here’s what I’ve learned. Although maze and labyrinth are often used interchangeably, there are distinctions for the purest. A labyrinth features a single, non-branching path leading to a center. Unlike a maze, the path of the labyrinth is not intended to be difficult or confusing. So no corn labyrinths for Halloween, please! Labyrinths have appeared in most cultures at some point or another across the globe. The designs have occurred on baskets, pottery, body art, caves, and churches. Their meaning is not fully understood, which made me think about crop circles. From Roman to Renaissance times, most labyrinths have traditionally been unicursal.

Labyrinths reached their most grand expression in the gothic cathedrals of northern France (Chartres, Reims, Amiens). These were magnificent pavement labyrinths set in the floor. Some believe pilgrims walked these paths…

The Next Big Change_Increase Loving Life

The Next Big Change_Increase Loving Life  That you might share most easily~!

Have you ever had a period in your life when you’ve daily celebrated loving your life?  And then, some circumstance or event arose of nowhere and you believed you might never be able to feel that way again?

It’s the lot of being human, I suppose, but having recently experienced that myself reminds me of the subjectivity talked about in the video and what a strong and miserable habit I’ve made of it.

To make the video more meaningful (and more easily shared as I just did with my sister a state away) you may want to take a look at the transcript.  It’s done by someone who’s first language is English (or their mastery of the language could fool me) and, thus, as close to perfect as I’ve ever seen.

The subject matter is, and has been, a top priority in my life.  Even so, I’ve been fooling myself and anyone who pays the least modicum of attention to me.  It’s largely a matter of not being able to draw my circle around me and gain the support I’ve managed to require.  Worse, I have managed to escape being very helpful to anyone else in this area as well.

I intend to take from this video and its transcript a review I can use, of my mental health, and learn to daily apply the mental/emotional hygiene habits suggested until my habits in caring for my mind are as well established as the ones for caring for my body.

I feel like cheering that I have found this.  I hope you like it as well.

In Remembrance of One of Your Inner Gifts_Mindset

We can all take a moment and celebrate here.  We all have a mindset.  Thanks to all the lucky stars, we all have a mind.  I’ll bet you’ve thought more, mentioned more, been grateful more for your mind.  Which is good, of course; however when you look for success, the mindset (which happens to be under your total control — so long as you are conscious) is like wearing the right power suit.  It’s a must that it is you, and your intention, are either powering your boat or setting your sail.

First, a sort of heads up.  I was unaware of this until recently and you may be, too.  There are two types of mindsets.  The first is somewhat unformed.  It is the mindset any of us may have if we’ve never been drawn to think much about our mindset.  It’s a mindset of others about us and in us from our backgrounds.  The majority of us have this mindset the whole of our lives until some kind of tragedy, accident, major drama, or until we decide to make a major change having decided to go after a dream or special opportunity.  I consider it a default mindset.

The other is called a growth or incremental mindset, the mindset you want to have to have success changing your life from what is common and seems “natural” through generations in your family to the high tech, information overrun world found on the World Wide Web.  If you’re reading this on the internet, you likely have a strongly held opinion about your own mindset.  Can it be tested or found out by others in some way?

Carol S. Dweck, Ph.D., is one of the world’s leading researchers in the field of motivation and she has much to say about the two mindsets.

Self Confidence Makes Way for Openings and Opportunities

Self Confidence Makes Way for Openings and Opportunities

You should be cautioned, however, to learn the difference between Self-confidence, which is based upon sound knowledge of what you know and what you can do, and egotism, which is only based upon what you wish you knew or could do. Learn the difference between these two terms or you will make yourself boresome, ridiculous and annoying to people of culture and understanding. Self-confidence is something which should never be proclaimed or announced except through intelligent performance of
constructive deeds.                                                  Napoleon Hill

Sometimes, you may want to wonder if some people are born leaders or positive thinkers. NO. Being positive and staying positive is a choice. Building self esteem and drawing lines for self improvement is a choice, not a rule or a talent.                                David Elefant writer on

Developing and maintaining self-confidence is strictly a job for the man or the woman one sees in the mirror.  And it may be the only aspect of yourself standing between you and success in your newest venture.

Napoleon Hill made it his life purpose to help men and women discover this to unveil the strengths and majesty each had within:

. . . what strength and power and possibility lie hidden in the mind of the man who has never discovered the value of Self-reliance. Then and there I made up my mind that I, too, would stand in front of that same looking-glass and point an accusing finger at myself for not having discovered the lesson which I had helped another to learn. I did stand before that same looking-glass, and as I did so I then and there fixed in my mind, as my definite purpose in life, the determination to help men and women discover the
forces that lie sleeping within them. The book you hold in your hands is evidence that my definite purpose is being carried out.  Napoleon Hill

The quotes I am sharing in this post are from Law of Success, an 1,100 + page tome Napoleon Hill wrote prior to Think and Grow Rich.  We are now following in it for the second time on our Monday through Friday Think and Grow Rich call 9AM Eastern on earlier to 6AM Eastern Pacific and Arizona which does not go on Daylight Savings Time.  Feel welcome to join us for the reading and Master Mind session at 712 432 0900 PIN 565762# or use the same pin to listen within 23 hours after at same phone, last four 0990.

One of the irreparable losses to the human race lies in the lack of knowledge that there is a definite method through which Self-confidence can be developed in any person of average intelligence. What an immeasurable loss to civilization that young men and women are not taught this known method of developing Self-confidence before they complete their schooling, for no one who lacks faith in himself is really educated in the proper sense of the term.                                             Napoleon Hill
