A few months ago I wrote an article featuring Jennie Emery. The article is titled Positive Music.
As a result of writing that article I was contacted by Chris S. Salazar,
from Dare2BU. I must say I was very pleased when I reviewed his website
and found more positive music.
"The mind grows by what it feeds on." Those words of wisdom are so very true.
Our minds take in everything we read and listen to. Books we read, music we listen to, it all influences our lives.
There are a lot of positive books available, however, positive music is not as plentiful. So needless to say I was delighted with the Dare2BU website! I now have two of the CD's from the site:
Songs of Success (my favorite!)
Dream Big (also good)
I agree with the thoughts on the Dare2BU website. Below is info taken from the website:
"There are numerous examples of people throughout the world who have overcome handicaps to achieve great success. One thing separates these winners from those who fail: they disregard any and all obstacles. These people-and all winners-possess the will to win. It's a will that starts with a belief in our ability to achieve the goals we dream of accomplishing.
Unfortunately, the world does not provide much inspiration on a daily basis. From the reporting of mostly negative news, to a "20% chance of rain" mentality, to music that tells us that love must be a painful experience, most people have few daily reminders that they can obtain personal and professional greatness without having to win the lottery.
Music is by far the most wonderful mthod we have to remind us each day of the power of personal accomplishment. And now-finally -the music industry has a new type of record company, one that is intensely dedicated to producing songs that inspire us all to accomplish great things."
Editors note: it is with regret that I update this thought to advise that
unfortunately the website http://www.dare2bu.com/
is no longer live on the internet, but we feel the message they were
conveying are still a valid ones!
Below find thoughts about the differences of being a winner and being a loser.
It all comes down to attitude and action. Which attitude do you display - winning or losing?
We hope the words of wisdom here will remind you to be a winner.
The Difference Between Winning and Losing
Some of the significant differences between winning and losing are:
Hanging on, persevering,
Letting go, giving up easily,
Accepting responsibility for your actions,
Always having an excuse for your actions,
Taking the initiative,
Waiting to be told what to do,
Knowing what you want and setting goals to achieve it,
Wishing for things, but taking no action,
Seeing the big picture, and setting your goals accordingly,
Seeing only where you are today,
Adopt a WINNING attitude!
An interesting and intriguing title to this poem, The Workings of a Successful Mind.
Read the words of wisdom written by Devin McMillan and see if you find the answers to how a successful mind works.
Our thanks to Devin for sharing his wisdom in these verses.
The Workings of a Successful Mind
by Devin McMillan, ©2010
The powers of the mind are not fixed
and science can never explain
What makes a person a success
yet leaves another so mundane
For whatever the mind can conceive
with enough thought it will deliver
There is no goal too extreme
when your mind is a benevolent giver
Take risks in your daily life
or you can conform like the rest
Since rewards are only granted to
those who have passed this test
Know that you have the power
to succeed in numerous ways
Or you can play it safe
being mediocre for all of your days
So keep positive in all you do
wielding your list of goals in hand
Fear not what others say
just focus on your plan
Enjoy every breath that passes
and every task there is to do
Since your actions will only play
the goals you have placed in cue
And always remember to gift
a little of everything you make
For life is defined by giving
and never by what you take.
