Believe and Trust
[A Reader's Request on Being Responsible]

Being responsible is being "response-able" (able to
respond) to every circumstance and situation that
comes your way.

Having thoughts and feelings about certain issues and
being responsible, able to respond from your perspective
requires you to believe and trust in your life's purpose,
what you know and feel to be true for sure.

Making things happen that bring you what you choose
requires you to believe and trust in your life's purpose,
what you know and feel to be true for sure.

Being responsible when you are challenged requires you
to...

1. know your life's purpose.
2. believe and trust in your life's purpose.
3. commit yourself to living your life's purpose.
4. continue the action steps that lead you to
    your life's purpose.

Commit yourself to your personal growth and development
because personal growth and development is the purpose
of life, and your personal growth and development begins
with your life's purpose.

Believe and trust in what you know and feel to be true for
sure so that your business and personal life works for you.

Believe and trust your life's purpose.

Believe and trust your dreams.

Share your dreams, your life's purpose, what you believe,
trust, know and feel for sure with other opt-in readers here.

Live Your Purpose

What is your purpose in life?

Are you living your purpose?

Arnold Patent in his book You Can Have It All writes about
Universal Laws. He maintains that your life works well
when these laws are followed.

One of the Universal Laws is that we all have a purpose
in life and that we are alive to live that purpose.

By finding and living your purpose (not your disappointment
or pain) in life, you open new frontiers since there is only
one you and your purpose is uniquely you.

Begin sharing by living your purpose with your colleagues,
family, friends and watch the change in your life.

You can share your purpose and the process you used
to find and live your purpose with others here.
