How To Bridge #Differences Begins With A Strong Ear

I have found this in my many situations of disagreements or encounters of debate and decision-making.

“In order to bridge differences, you need a strong ear, neutralized mind, and conscious ability to allow the inflow of all information without injecting unprocessed rationale. Then keep a dampened tongue, so once the mind rationally creates a neutral and common ground solution, the tongue is much more precise and efficient in delivering that solution to such a degree, the opposer will begin to subconsciously turn around their weak ear, strong tongue and irrational thinking into the same level of rationality, hence a bridge can now be formed. However, it starts with a strong ear first.”

Keeping A Gentle Soul and #Compassionate Heart Is Not A Character Of Weakness, It’s Quite The Opposite.

Something I’ve realized over time, and that is:

“Keeping a gentle soul and compassionate heart is not a character of weakness. In fact it’s quite the opposite.

When one has to stand strong and use strong will, then it’s respected and carried through simply because others know where it originated from, the compassionate heart and gentle soul, and that has significant weight.

However, if strong will is not overshadowed by compassion and meekness on a regular basis, then when it is truly needed, it will unfortunately never be respected, seen as strong or of value, and hence the objective that summoned for strong will, be not be carried through from others.

So keep a gentle soul and compassionate heart, and your inner strength will never be compromised.”

Have a great one.

Simple quote on #Patience.

“The early bird may always get the worm, but the second mouse always gets the cheese.” _JYG

In other words, being first is not always best, and many valuable lessons are learned in being anything but first.
Patience tames the eager soul, and sometimes helps avoid bad or costly decisions.

Giving #Gratitude, Accompanied By The Mental Visualizations, Can Give A Instant Relief From #Stress, #Fear And #Uncertainty Daily.

20130729-225038.jpg Jason Young Guy

As I was flying at 35 thousand feet during the early morning hours, I had several pressing problems that was not only causing me a lot of personal stress, worry and anxiety, but it was also causing me to question the choices and decisions I have made recently and the ones that were lying before me.  I couldn’t help but think about something Bob Proctor told me while I was out at Lake Las Vegas, and thought I would share it, as well as, the results with me personally in hopes that anyone else may benefit from it.

Bob Proctor is known for the internationally acclaimed film and book, “The Secret”. Now, I’m not big on motivational speakers, but Bob is a little different as he was mentored and coached by Earl Nightingale, who was mentored by Napoleon Hill, who was mentored by Andrew Carnegie.  So, I give Bob a little more of my attention than I do most speakers or authors. Don’t get me wrong, I do appreciate anyone whose philosophy is to em-better human potential, and provide real, productive and proven ways to achieve it on a continual basis.

Bob mentioned something to me while discussing a project he and his foundation are working on in South Africa for schools and under privileged children. It was such a profound moment for me, and it was  something I already knew yet never have truly applied it in such a conscious and intense way until now.

We always say under our breath or in a not so intentional way, how thankful we are for things in our lives. Unfortunately most people are so consumed with every day problems and pending issues, that we rarely take time to really think of the great blessings and positive aspects in our personal lives, much less, give actual “thanks” for them, or more importantly “Gratitude.”

Now I know a lot of people who say, “of course I’m aware of the great things and achievements in my life”, but in all honestly how many times have we sat in private with ourselves, and really visualized each positive and significant thing in our lives, and give real, soulful  gratitude for each one while we are purposely visualizing it in our mind  as we give the mental gratitude? Not many times at all, if ever. Thus, we never feel the real ease of anxiety and relief of stress from the pending and upcoming problems  we face every day in our lives.

When we stop in the busy pursuit of life, and give true, honest and intentional gratitude on a daily basis and “mentally visualize”  each one as it’s done,  an almost miraculous, calming effect instantly takes place over our minds and spirit for the problems and negative situations that are consuming our minds with worry, fear and uncertainty.

Sitting on an airplane at 35 thousand feet, and dwelling on a problem that was consuming my thoughts and churning my stomach with worry, I decided to do what I already knew how to, and that was give gratitude for the many accomplishments and even tangible things I have in my life. I consciously made my mind and soul focus on that gratitude as I gave it in silent, with my eyes closed.

The instant calm and relief was almost instantaneous, and I was literally aware of it which was just stunning for me, not to mention the relief I was desperately needing. In fact, it was such a mysterious relief of stress, that the more I gave the gratitude and visualized it consciously, the more and more less stressful I was over the problem lying ahead.

Giving a conscious gratitude for the things in your life ranging from people, assets and experiences to simplistic wonderful moments in time, has such a power within you that I truly believe it will not only calm and ease the anxiety and tension of the problems, but can possibly eradicates or solve them as well.

Now, some call it a trust in Faith, some call it the Laws Of Attraction, and some simply call it luck, but even if giving the gratitude visually in your mind doesn’t solve the emotional turmoil caused by problem or situations, it will  greatly reduces the stress and worry with significant impact, and it’s almost instantaneous in the subconscious first, and then you will see it work in the conscious of your mind, and most importantly  you will feel the results in your heart and inner soul.

I’m convinced with the intentional practice of visualizing in your mind the most cherished and beloved things you have acquired or experienced in your life, accompanied with a silent or verbal acknowledgement of gratitude for them on a daily or even weekly basis, it will significantly reduce, if not eradicate, the fears and problems you are experiencing in your life.It doesn’t matter if you are religious or not. It does not matter if you aren’t good with words. It does not matter if you have very little to be grateful for. It DOES matter if you acknowledge them and give an abundance of gratitude for them.

A man with few blessings in his life is equal to and no less or greater than a man with multitudes of blessings. I say ‘blessings’  in the sense of achievements, tangible items of importance or significance, and real events that gave you the most positive benefit for your soul and mind, even if it’s just the simplicity of your new-born child or the acquiring of your long time pet.

I already knew how to give gratitude for the things I’ve achieved and acquired in my life, and it’s not that I haven’t been grateful, but I just never really, really applied the gratitude. I mean literally applied the gratitude with a sincere, conscious and visual acknowledgement of each one. The more I visually gave gratitude, the smaller and of less significance the existing problems I was facing became. They simply dissipated in my spirit and my mind.

Something so simple, and it took sitting on a plane alone at 35 thousand feet to think about and actually apply it.  Now, I find myself giving gratitude within myself while I’m in places that give me that opportunity when I’m not at home or in private. I’m talking about simple places like waiting in the grocery line, sitting at a red light, or anywhere you can have a moment to focus on that instead of the existing problems.

It’s a conscious choice you have to be willing to do, and then be willing to do on a consistent basis. Soon, it will become apart of your subconscious practices, and the habit will be embedded in you. This can  lead to only one thing, and that is  almost instantaneously eliminating any negative reactions to what use to be significant problems or situations you are facing and the issues to come in the future.

Remember, you were born to choose, and only you can choose how to handle problems and situations that are affecting your daily life and the reactions you have to them. Never ‘expect’ anything to happen, always ‘believe’ it will happen, and the gratitude you give for those things will ensure a prosperous and positive growth of your mind, spirit and ability to face testing problems and situations.

“Giving conscious gratitude and mentally visualizing those things as you gratify for,  significantly reduces, if not eliminates, the stress, fear and anxiety of day-to-day life.” ___ Jason Young Guy

#Strength Within You

“I believe one’s inner strength is greatly strengthened and advanced, when one is able to identify and then utilize their weaknesses into one of their greatnesses.

First, you have to consciously identify the weakness, and then consciously make a purposeful and continual effort to conquer and mold it to become a strong feature within you. Only you can recognize the weakness, and only you can decide the significance it plays in your life.

Once you have decided the importance that weaknesses is affecting your inner strength and ability, then you can take the conscious steps to control it’s power over you. Then subconsciously, you will grow stronger,and so will your confidence within you to do what ever you set your mind to do.

Weaknesses within us are nothing more than abilities that are just discovered by ourselves, within ourselves, everyday of our lives on all levels of size.

The key to growing inner strength, is realizing and identifying what is the newly found weakness, and then start practicing by habit to turn it in to one of your best attributes.

An attribute that has to serve you for the betterment of who you are, and who you are toward humanity, both in public and private.

The greatnesses within you are built and managed by you. They are known by you on the inside, but gleam from you on the outside, which is what shows others your true character and abilities.

Only you can decide what is greatness and what is weakness by how you treat yourself on the inside. The more confidence you find yourself having, is the result of you turning weaknesses into greatnesses.

It becomes almost a subconscious action you take, but only after you have made yourself aware of the very first weakness you know exists within you and conqueror it.

The strength you develop as a result, will be seen and absorbed by others that are looking for the very same help for growing their inner strength, and that is the ultimate reward for yourself.

Stay true to yourself, and depend on your own inner strength, and nothing can defeat your goals and purpose in life.”

My Experience For All Recent #Graduates Of Any Age.

For the true successes in life doesn’t come from a job or the education, but yet comes from the continual contributions to humanity, and by the level of integrity acquired through education, deliver on such a scale that will in turn greatly advance them to their every desire in life.”

Natural Talents Are The Gift Of Giving.

Jason Young Guy

Since Thanksgiving and Christmas is approaching, I thought I’d write about something I’m very passionate about, and that is giving. Giving in the sense of sharing as it pertains to not only material things, but intangible things as well.

You see, as a Concert Pianist and Entertainer I always tell people in my audiences and in person, “I believe everyone has a talent. Some find it when they are young and some find it when they are old. In either case, find what you love to do more than anything and your talent will be hidden within. Then give thanks to God for it, and share it so that others may benefit from it.”

The part I emphasize the most in my quote is, ” the sharing so that others may benefit from it.” By this I don’t necessarily mean benefit in terms of profits or assets, but in the sense of giving they benefit also from the kindness, spiritual and emotional good it does, which in turn, benefits you as well for the effort of sharing your talents.

Sometimes we don’t even realize or see how others benefit from our natural gifts, and sometimes we ourselves don’t even stop to realize what benefits we have acquired from giving. It’s just natural to do what we do best, and it’s also natural for us to not really pay attention to the good we do with our natural talents. If we stop and really pay attention and understand how our “giving” affects others, then we hold the key to our own success in growth and life.

People sometimes don’t understand what natural talents are, so I’ll give a little explanation the best I know how, and then you can determine what your gifts are and how you can “give” your talents so others can benefit from them, and believe it or not you will recoup the rewards be it money, power or divine uplifting and spiritual growth.

I have a natural gift to play the piano by ear, as in I do not read music. I can perform on the piano and play in a manner that many think I’ve been trained since I was 5, but quite the contrary, as I didn’t discover I could do this until I was 22 years of age and went professional at 23. Now, I’m not boasting but merely making a point. This type of talent is a physical talent I’m able to do that many cannot or have to be trained in order to do. The real talent is not the ability to play, but the ability to share the music and relate it to others through body expressions as I’m playing. In other words, I have more people tell me they enjoy watching me enjoy playing. THAT is the true talent hidden within.

Anyone can learn to play the piano, but not everyone can give off the enjoyment and passion that it embeds in others souls strictly by watching me express what it does to my soul. That is the giving part of performing on the piano.

Now another example of natural talents, and there are a vast many in this world, are people with lets say the unique ability to speak perfect words. Huh? Yes. People fail to realize that being able to speak words of wisdom, care, inspiration, healing, problem solving and just plain common sense are also a type of natural talent. As I said before, the key to their success is realizing they have that talent and can see what effects it has on people in a good way when they share it. Then they are more prone to utilize it better and hence receive more good for themselves by what the effect is having on the people they speak to whether it is one single person or a large crowd. I know it may sound complicated, but it’s really not. That is just an example of a natural talent that isn’t necessarily a tangible task one does or creates, but it is none the less a real talent and has huge impacts when shared for the common good.

Talents come in all forms and I think you have the idea of what I’m expressing on the Gift of Giving. The key to being successful and discovering your talent is again discovering what fulfills you the most, and recognizing the successful and beneficial outcome it has on others in an always positive way. Once that is recognized, then build on that talent and continue to give as you will always receive more personally when you do, then the ones receiving it will.

Just never forget to give thanks to God for it, as He can always take it away just as He gave it to you. Treat any talent of yours with respect and use it only for the good of yourself and others. Even if it is the art of building a simple bird house. It may be ordinary to you, but it can bring a lifetime of enjoyment for someone else who hangs it outside their home. The satisfaction that should fill you of that talent, is every time that person smiles when they see a bird nesting in the art you created for them.

Have a blessed day,

Jason Y. Guy
