Make Yourself Come True

Steve Chandler wrote a little book with a lot of great ideas. Actually, there are 100 great ideas in his book titled, 100 Ways to Motivate Yourself. Change Your Life Forever.Photobucket

If you've ever had difficulty getting motivated to do anything I suggest you go out to your local library or favorite bookstore and pick up a copy of this little gem that packs big ideas.

For instance, from pages 60-61 Steve recommends you Find Your Inner Einstein. I've never even imagined that I could have an inner Einstein. E=MC2. Do I have an inner Einstein? I don't think so.


But then I read Steve's pages. He says that Einstein said, "Imagination is more important than knowledge." Wait a minute! Wait just a minute. Maybe I do have an inner Einstien. I have imagination!

Steve goes on to tell us about a song for teenagers that Fred Knipe wrote so that teens could visualize themselves succeeding at what they wanted to do:
"That's you/in your wildest dreams/doing the wildest things/no one else can do. If you/just love and keep those dreams/the wildest dreams/you'll make yourself come true."

I LOVE THIS! It's motivating to me. Steve goes on to say,"But the greatest thing about active dreaming is not in the eventual reaching of the goal-- the greatest thing is what it does to the dreamer."

Are you making yourself come true? How? What are you doing? How do you stay motivated?




  1. Sigh. I just simplify it all by trying to let the Holy Spirit lead me every day. We do make out a list together...but sometimes life happens!!!

    Blessings, girl. You go!!

  2. That's a good plan Patti girl. :) I liked your post about Book Fest. Very cool and very fun!

  3. I love that saying from Einstein. Until I read that one, I'd say, "I'm no Einstein." Einstein is also quoted as saying: I rarely think in words. I say: I rarely think in numbers.

  4. Hi Mary!
    I'm with you. I rarely think in numbers. BUT, I bet that all changes for us as we get published and think sales, advances, etc. :) I wonder what our friends will say if we start walking around saying, "I'm such an Einstein."

  5. Great suggestions Jill! and great blog title!

    I have always been so goal oriented, task specific that I wished half my life away looking toward something and not looking around me day by day. I'm learning. I want to live in the fullness of each day...just a bit more.

  6. Hey Deb,
    Sounds like your making yourself come true! :) I never thought this would be so hard to do, but hey, we're still growing in all kinds of ways, even our inner Einstein.
