GOOD MONDAY MORNING EVERYONE!
Will post my usual morning post sometime later, but wanted to make sure I got our
done early in the morning, so here's my contribution for MM, there's 2 of them to read today, the first one is wonderful, the second one you need to read between the lines:
Most likely, you have a good idea of what you would like to do, and what you would like to accomplish. Do you know why? Behind every desire is a reason, and behind every reason is a purpose. Connect your desire with its deepest underlying purpose, and you'll connect with the strength necessary to achieve that desire.
Achievement requires much effort and commitment, time, energy, and persistence. You're absolutely capable of all that and more, when there's a real, meaningful purpose to what you're doing. But without a clear purpose, you're likely to become discouraged, bored, or frustrated into giving up. By contrast, with a strong, driving purpose behind your efforts you'll find a way to work through any challenge.
There is much you can learn from your dreams and desires, even before you begin to reach for them. Understand the reasons and the purpose behind those dreams, and you will gain a better understanding of who you are.
The more you know about yourself and about what drives you, the more effective every effort and every moment will become. Know why, and the road to your dreams will unfold with every step you take.

FROM WITHIN YOU
Whatever you seek to attain, seek first to attain it within you. Once it is truly within you, it will begin to expand throughout all of your experience.The value you create within you can never be lost. Every improvement you make in the quality of your consciousness will always be with you.
The dreams that you'll make real are the dreams that come from the deepest part of you. Nurture and build them first within you, and they'll become so powerful as to be undeniable.
When that which is within you is strong and meaningful, the positive energy will flow outward and can touch every part of your life. And nothing outside of you can diminish it.
Others can point the way and give encouragement. Yet ultimately, you are responsible for taking good care of your inner life. It is well worth the effort. For whatever you attain within, is surely who you truly are.
