Part 2: May Day- Time to Call in the Calvary?

Continued from part 1:

You Are Not Supposed to Live in Doubt and Fear

You are supposed to be happy, fulfilled, excited about life, and have passionate goals to pursue. If you don’t, it’s a May Day moment.  Call in the cavalry!  You are not supposed to live in doubt but instead to know for sure that you can accomplish your dreams.  You are not supposed to fear failure and have low esteem, instead you are supposed to know that you are worthy, capable, noble, and necessary.   And yet so many are visionless, complacent, uninspired, robotic, disillusioned, and cynical.

Too Many People Are Living Mediocre, Mundane, and Humdrum Lives

Too many people with vision, capacity, and possibilities are living mediocre, mundane, and humdrum lives.  And, they should be allowed to, but the problem is that they are not happy.  And, hurt people, hurt other people.  They sit around complaining, creating doubts in the minds of dreamers, and being envious of those who overcome and succeed.

Too Many People Are Settling and Using Excuses

Too many people are settling and using excuses to justify their giving up on themselves and their dreams.  But, no one starts out that way.  We began life as dreamers, with hope, and with expectations.  Somewhere along the way we began to settle for whatever life served us and that is the travesty.  But don’t worry, help is on the way.  The fact that you took the time to read this newsletter and pass it on to others shows that you are on the path to truth and are bringing others with you.

Seeking Help is a Sign of Wisdom and Strength

You’ve figured out that you can’t do it alone right now but still have refused to ask for help. It is okay to ask for help.  Perhaps you’ve mistakenly thought that asking for help is a sign of weakness.  To the contrary, seeking wise counsel and support is a sign of wisdom and strength for we are all connected.  The native people teach us that we each have exactly what each other needs. Your help could come from anywhere.  But, you must ASK, and believe in order to receive!  True belief unleashes our nascent powers and attracts blessings and help to us.
