Negative thoughts create a black hole
that annihilates my future in a unique way.
Every time I say no to
life, I shut the door to opportunity. Unfortunately, itís impossible to
shut only one door. When I say no, I shut and lock hundreds of other
doors that lie behind the door not opened. Negation and limitations
expand at an exponential rate. Life is too short and opportunities too
few to shut any door to the future.
Being negative is simple. I just say no, and thatís the end of it. It
doesnít require any thought or hard work. Negation is a powerful tool
for destroying opportunity. Itís a period in the sentence of life.
Nothing happens after negation. Discussion is over. Thinking is over.
Affirmative action is over. Nothing else can be said or done.
Negative thinking is incredibly powerful. The only safe way to deal
with it is to monitor my thoughts and extinguish the fire of negativity
as soon as it appears. I sniff it out when itís small and snuff it out
while itís weak. If I let it get out of control, it will consume my

After driving thousands of miles in the Empty Quarter, I'm hooked on
driving in sand.
If you asked me whether I would rather sail the seven seas on my
catamaran or land cruise in the Empty Quarter in my Defender, it would
be a toss up as to which I would enjoy the most. I like both equally
They are actually the same thing - they're all about living my dreams.
Our Arabian sandbox had nearly a million square kilometers of sand -
plenty of room for sand dreams. And when you are out there driving over
the rolling dunes, you almost feel like you are skimming across the
giant swells of the Pacific Ocean. The difference is that in the sea of
sand, the waves aren't moving.
Sand dreams and sailing dreams have one other thing in common. The only
way you can make them come true is to say yes to life.
It's easy to say no to life, because when you say no, you don't need to
do anything. You can sit in your easy chair and make bun prints in the
sands of time. You don't need to lift a finger.
The word "no" is a destroyer of dreams.
The word "yes" makes dreams happen, but it's not enough to say yes only
one time. You must say it again and again. You must keep saying it
until your sand dreams happen.
When you say yes to life, the work has just begun. You have to save up
your money to buy your Defender. Next, you put a full length Brownchurch roof rack on top of your truck. Then you add some long
range fuel tanks and put airbags inside the rear springs to upgrade the
suspension. You load thirteen jerry cans into and on top of the
vehicle. Next, you add 200 liters of water, food, camping gear,
firewood, and sand ladders. Then, you load four people into the truck,
drive 500 kilometers into the Empty Quarter, and finally your sand
dreams come true.
Only those people who say yes to life can expect their dreams to come
How do you say yes to God's dream for your life?|
You simply get in agreement with God.
I'm not talking about nodding your head up and down, and telling God
that He has a good master plan.
I'm talking about changing the way you think, feel, and act.
The power of God's love rolls through your mind, and you think about
your life in a new way. You are now a child of God. You are
made in his image, and you bear his likeness. You now have eyes of
faith, and you see possibilities, where previously you only saw
The power of God's love rolls through your heart and changes the way you
feel. Your self-esteem soars on the updrafts of God's love, and
damaged emotions are washed away in God's ocean of love.
Finally, when you get in agreement with God's dream for your life, you
change the way you act. You live as if your dreams are possible,
and act as if you cannot fail.
