Time for Change—There Is a Better Way

by James R. Yarbrough

You first have to know, and then you have to realize you know. When you know, that you know better, you will do better. Good is what you do until then. It is a goal with no end and you should strive to make your good better. Good can and does get better. If you fail, you cheat your Self. When you think in a way that takes from who you are, that is what you are doing. It is the worst kind of way to think. One of the rules of nature is to do no harm to the Self. If you do, you can never live your life as you should. Your life will not be what you deserve.

When you do not use our gifts and talents—we all have them—they do not stay at their best. Nature will not let it be. Your assets have to be put to their best use. When this does not happen, life moves on but you will not keep up. To work against what is good for you pokes a finger in the eye of nature. We live and grow by the fundamentals of life. To know this is the core of our existence.

Success is that moment when you know that you have given all that you have to give, for now.

The right thing done the wrong way will not succeed. Just as the wrong thing cannot be done right. You can be right, though look as if you are wrong by those who are not right. It does not mean that you are wrong, and they are right, they are still wrong. You should let no one turn you away from what you know. You do not have to prove you are right, just be right. To make a change to what is right will not make a thing that is right better. It will not be improved on. If it is right, it is not wrong and should be left alone.

You are the one to decide what is right or wrong for you. As we all must do, you have to live with what you decide. When you have done the right things, it does not mean all the right things are done. When you do it right you will feel right. It is then that you will know how much better it is than what it was if it was wrong. You cannot be caught doing the right thing. How can you do a thing wrong when you know how to do it right? You cannot.

Your thoughts and how you feel and act will change as you change. There is no better time for change than when it is needed. And the change will happen, when you change how you think. This will change how you feel. When you feel better, you will change how you act and your life will change, as well. Our role in life is shaped by how we act. It is how you will be known to those who know you. It is what others will use to judge you. Some may say it is not all about you. Well, I say, it is. When it is about you, it is about us, all of us in some way. We all have the Self as the core of who we are. You get to know your Self by being yourself. How great it is to meet your Self for the first time. You should not let your life pass you by. Be happy to know who you are. This you have coming to you. When you are not happy, it shows.

To change your mind is to change your life. If there is no way to know, there is no need to know. Where there is a need there is a way, if there is no way, there is no need. The more you get the less you need. It is called nature it is called life. If there is a thing you need to do, you can do it. You only need to tell your Self that you can.

When you do not succeed as you think you should, there is more work for you to do. Perfection in the things we do is a worthwhile goal to have. It is not a bad word. It is a Self, defined state of mind, it is personal. If not to be perfect, what then could be your goal. To go for less would be less than your best. We were created to decide the scope and reach of our lives. Observe all that is in your world and do your best to understand what you see. And do with it all that you can. There is much to be gained no matter where you stand.

You must listen to learn and learn to listen to what your world has to tell you. Do not run from the sound that you hear, take the time to listen. To hear is not to listen. It is not the same. It takes no effort to hear. This is if you want to or not. To hear is one of the senses. It is there by nature and has no on and off switch. To listen is not a sense it is a skill. If you want to get the most out of what you hear, you have to listen. Are you listening now?

We can never run out of time, time runs out of us.

You can only get there from here. You will not get there from any other place for you can be no place other than where you are. You can only get there from here and you got here from there. You were there in the past, now you can be there in the future. You can go back there or you can go to there, it is your choice, which there do you choose. You can only get there from here. You cannot stay here.

You have to believe it to see it. When you see it, you will know.
