Today's Words of Inspiration - Happy Labor Day Weekend!

There is power, there is power in a band of working men, when they stand, hand in hand. That’s a power, that’s a power that must rule in every land - Joe Hill

Organizer, Industrial Pioneer, there are tons of descriptions for Joe Hill, but one thing that can't be refuted is that he beleived in the power of work, hard work, a hard days work for an honest days pay.

While Traditionally, Labor Day is celebrated by most Americans as the symbolic end of the summer, with forms of celebration including picnics, barbecues, fireworks displays, water sports, and public art events, its origins are much more politically based. Now, families with school-age children take it as the last chance to travel before the end of summer recess!

What one word description can be placed under your picture to describe you? I'd like to think mine would be 'motivator'

Like Joe, I have a strong work ethic, I'm not afraid to work hard, pitch in, and get the job done.

It's a great weekend to assess 'labor' in the literal and figurative sense in your life. What role do your labors play in shaping who you are? Do you think what you labor at is WHO you are or WHAT you do? Why?

Do you share the same work ethic as your parents or your grand-parents?

The 'labors' put down by our Grand-Parents paved the way for our Parents, and their labors made our path a bit easier, what labors can you make to make the road that much easier for your children?

Use 'Today's Words of Inspiration' as a breathing meditation to still your mind, quiet your thoughts and bring in positive energy. As you inhale bring in only positive energy by saying in your mind, I breathe in positive energy (or you can say creative energy if that is what you wish to create more of) and as you exhale, Affirm out loud today 'I will put thought and motivation into all of my labors!'

Spend some time each day enjoying focused breathing AND soul guided meditative visualization, in doing so, you can bring about profound and powerful changes in your life.

Visualize yourself manifesting something unique, guided by universal forces that emerge spontaneously from within your soul. Do this at least twice today and see how by taking a moment away from the hectic pace and breathing in positive energy and affirming what you wish to create, your thinking will become different.

Remember, attitude really does determine altitude.
