Quote from Susan Jeffers:
Taking responsibility means not blaming yourself… Anything that takes away your power or your pleasure makes you a victim. Don’t make yourself a victim of yourself!
When we give from a place of love, rather than from a place of expectation, more usually comes back to us than we could have ever imagined.
What we resist, persists.
Whether it feels like it or not, you already have more power than you could ever have imagined. We all have.
The truth is that love and power go together.
Say YES to life. Participate. Move. Act. Write. Read. Sign up. Take a stand. Or do whatever it takes for you. Get involved in the process. As Rollo May wrote in Man’s Search for Himself: “Every organism has one and only one central need in life, to fulfill its own potentialities.”
Why be miserable when you can be happy?
The biggest pitfall as you make your way through your life is impatience.

You must become what you want to attract. Be the kind of person you would want to surround yourself with.
They have discovered that security is not having things; it’s handling things. Thus, when you can answer all your “what if”s with “I can handle it,” you can approach all things with a no-lose guarantee, and the fear disappears.
In a sense, your need to please shows you what you have to work on—and that is: letting go emotionally of the role of child and stepping into the role of adult.
