Gooooooood mooorning STEEMIT!

Why This Series?

On my RV nomad adventures, I've been fortunate enough to been able to work on my own entrepreneurial ideas, without having to worry about money. That all changed this week though--I needed to pick up a 9-6 day job to tide me over for a while.

I did NOT want to lose momentum on my personal projects, and feel like I was just working to tread water. That feeling SUCKS!

So I've been getting up extra early every day to do get a session in on my projects, since I'm usually brain-dead after work.

And to keep me on track I'm going to post a strong motivational text or quote each morning,
for all you Earlybirds out there, tryna get the jump on Charlie. (Sorry @Charles1)

James Allen is a little-known but extremely influential writer. Dating from the early 1900's, his books on mindset, success, and character were incredibly influential upon later titans of self-help, Dale Carnegie, Napoleon Hill, and more. His book As A Man Thinketh really got me out of a tough place. Day-by-day I will be sharing his "Morning and Evening Thoughts". Absorb them slowly, and carry them with you throughout the day.

Fifth Morning

To dwell in love always and towards all
is to live the true life, is to have Life itself.
Knowing this, the good man gives up
himself unreservedly to the Spirit of Love,
and dwells in Love towards all, contending
with none, condemning none, but loving

The Christ Spirit of Love puts an
end, not only to all sin, but to all division
and contention.

Fifth Evening

When sin and self are abandoned, the heart
is restored to its imperishable Joy.

Joy comes and fills the self-emptied
heart; it abides with the peaceful; its reign
is with the pure.

Joy flees from the selfish, it deserts the
quarrelsome; it is hidden from the impure.

Joy cannot remain with the selfish; it is
wedded to Love.
