Is the glass half full or half empty?

Is the glass half full or half empty?…………..The real thing to realise is, that it is your glass, if you drink it dry and wait, expecting someone else to fill it for you and with something that you like; then you may be in for a long wait. At any time you can choose to refill your glass and with anything that you could possibly want to have in it. So the real question is – is it time for me to fill my glass?


Your mind is like a garden.


Your mind is like a garden,

Your thoughts are the seeds,

You can grow flowers,

Or you can grow weeds.

The Caged bird

The caged bird is a wonder to see and to hear. So wonderful it is to get up so close and to see first-hand its natural beauty; beauty that it would normally keep far from our sight, if it were in its natural and free environment. Also it is good thing for a person to care for a little creature and keep it in good health.

The caged bird is happy or at least appears to be. Water, food, warmth, it wants for nothing, no need to hunt or to gather; a life of apparent ease.

We all sometimes think about the caged bird, despite its every need been taken care of, surly the bird would want to be free if it had a choice. Birds are meant to soar and fly; the warmth of the sun, the birdsong of other birds must be so inviting. Some may even have become aware of the cage door and given some thought to escaping.

Are we in some ways very much like the caged bird? Mankind was made also to soar and the fly, yet in our own way. We were not meant to be caged, restricted and held back. We were not meant to only eat, drink, sleep and keep warm, but to actively engage with life. We were put on this earth to grow and expand in a vast variety of ways, skills, knowledge, character, experiences and to ever improve at helping and interacting with others for the greater good of all.

We are not caged birds; no one keeps our cage door closed other than ourselves. We are meant to soar and fly; so are you a caged bird?

It is logical to set your Mind for Achievement.



Setting your mind for achievement would appear to be obvious and logical. Yet the vast majority of the population fail to do just that. Despite all that they say, most allow themselves to be distracted; failing to ask themselves -“What do I truly want?” and even if they did know the answer to that, lack the courage and will power to make it happen. Yes, it is logical to set your mind for achievement and to pursue it over time until it is reached. It is no harder to live the life that you truly want and to surround yourself with the best that life has to offer; in fact I would say that it is harder to live an unhappy, unfulfilled life, going with the flow and to actually be helping others get all that they want in life. By failing to set out personal life goals and by failing to plan, by default means that we will fall into someone else’s plans, with some hope that it will turn out good for us – to fail to plan and to hope for the best is not logical.



The Comfort Zone – Poem


I used to have a comfort zone
where I knew I couldn’t fail,
The same four walls of busy work
were really more like a 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 or furs and such

I claimed to be so busy
with the things inside my zone,
But deep inside I longed for
something special 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 and with new strength
I’d never felt before,
I kissed my comfort zone good bye
and closed and locked the door

If you are in a comfort zone
afraid to venture out,
Remember that all winners
were at one time filled with doubt

A step or two and words of praise
can make your dreams come true
Greet your future with a smile,
success is there for you!
