Don’t ask God to send you a brilliant career, instead ask to be shown the brilliance within you.
Personal power emanates from someone who takes life seriously. The universe takes us as seriously as we take it. No matter what we do, we can make it our ministry. We are here to minister to human hearts. We are here to bring more love into people’s lives, into the lives of everyone we meet. We are powerful in whatever moment we choose. Choosing to be an instrument of love is a choice for personal empowerment.
Blessing others draws them to us. Make our careers an expression of love in the service of mankind. Making our goal anything other than peace is emotionally self-destructive. As we grow in personal stature, we grow in more responsible energy; then our progress will occur easily. Our success will be an effortless accomplishment. Things will just happen.
Give all your gifts away in the service of the world. Whatever you want to do, do it – whether you are paid for it or not, whether you gain recognition for it or not.
