"Dig within. Within is the wellspring of good; and it is always ready to bubble up, if you just dig."
Life can feel like one crazy, complicated puzzle on occasion. In fact, at times it seems like we face a never ceasing procession of challenges and questions that require our response. Sometimes we have the answers, sometimes we don't. And in those trying moments when a rapid response isn't readily available, it can leave us feeling baffled, bewildered and battered.
Feeling queasy and a bit uneasy, we hastily scurry to find the answers. Searching far and wide, looking over hill and dale and just about everywhere, we try and try to patch together a proper response. Yet sometimes the answers evade even our best efforts. And sometimes we give up believing there's nowhere else left to look.
"There are powers inside of you, if you could discover and use, would make of you everything you ever dreamed or imagined you could become."
Orison Swett Marden
Far too often we're guilty of looking for the right answers in too many wrong places. Our eyes busily scour the countryside, searching the four corners of the earth, hoping to catch a glimpse of what we're looking for. All the while the answers always remain right where they have been all along - right there inside of us.
Why do we constantly make the same mistake over and over again, continually searching for answers on the outside without once thinking to look within? Maybe we want to emulate the actions of others, believing they hold the key to success. Or maybe, just maybe, we don't really believe, deep down where it counts, that we have what it takes to get the job done.
"What's going on in the inside shows on the outside."
Sure, we can garner a great deal by observing the way proven winners in our chosen field of endeavor operate. We can gain tremendous benefit in seeing the mistakes they have already made and by working to avoid making them ourselves. And we can definitely emulate their most successful moves and continue to build from there.
All of that is fine and dandy, but there's something really important missing when we simply follow the lead of others. And that important something includes the unique God given gifts and talents nestled within us that makes us who we are - and what we are destined to become. Invaluable gifts that can take us anywhere we want to go if given half a chance.
"Life is just a mirror, and what you see out there, you must first see inside of you."
Wally 'Famous' Amos
Make no mistake about it; life offers up a multitude of challenges daily; difficult, demanding challenges that require much more than a cursory response. Some push us to our outer limits, some beyond. Then there are others that kindle our creative imagination and arouse our intrinsic need to succeed. By catching fire from the inside out, we can overcome anything life tosses our direction. And I do mean anything at all.
Carl Jung once said, "Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakens." Isn't it about time you awakened the sleeping giant within and started living the life you've always dreamed of living? Within you burns a fiery drive to achieve, to succeed and to make something special of your life. It's time to tap into this fire and catch fire yourself.
Instead of looking all over the place for the happiness or guidance you seek, why not get the inside scoop by looking within and see what happens? You'll discover you can see a lot more with your heart than you'll ever see with your eyes.
The Bottom Line: When it comes to your heart and soul, why not scoop up all that you can? In fact, why not order a double scoop today?
