Don't tell me where your priorities are.

Show me where you spend your money and I'll tell you what they are.

-James W. Frick

Plan YOUR work! Work YOUR Plan!

Iyanla Vanzant is the founder and executive director of Inner Visions International and the Inner Visions Institute for Spiritual Development. She is the author of 13 titles—including five New York Times bestsellers—and the Inner Visions CD Series. Peace from Broken Pieces: How to Get Through What You’re Going Through has been published by SmileyBooks and available here. Iyanla is a Spiritual Technician. She is a Master Teacher. She is a woman of passion, clear vision and purpose, with a wicked sense of humor. Ordinary? Maybe. We think Dr. Maya Angelou's description is much more appropriate. Iyanla is, by many accounts, a Phenomenal Woman!

I will realize my own worth when I accept
.  .  . everything I set out to do
begins within me.

In order to accomplish anything in life you must have cooperation among all of the forces involved. The mind must cooperate with the body. The body must cooperate with the heart. The heart must cooperate with the desire. The desire must cooperate with the vision. The vision must cooperate with will power.  The will power must cooperate with the ability. The ability must cooperate with the opportunity. The opportunity must cooperate with the timing. The timing must cooperate with the order. Order must cooperate with the outcome. The outcome must cooperate with the mind.

The point is, you must have inner, as well as outer cooperation in order to accomplish anything in life. The level of innercooperation is determined by your sense of worth.

This means that what you think you can do, you believe you will do.  In response to what you believe you can do, you take consistent action toward that end. When you undertake any endeavor harboring a conscious or unconscious belief that you are not worthy of doing it, you will find that you are unable to move forward.  

The desire to do anything is Divine. The ideas you receive are God's ideas for you. Until you believe that you, with all of your faults, can still receive Divine inspiration, it will be difficult to get your head, your heart and your body to move in one direction together.  

Until today, you may not have been able to get the various aspects of your being to cooperate with your desire. Just for today, examine resistance. What are you telling yourself?  This represents mental resistance. What are you feeling? This is emotional resistance.  What steps are you taking toward manifesting your dreams and goals?  This is physical resistance. Once each is identified, ask the Holy Spirit for support in bringing each of these aspects into cooperation with the others.

Today, I am devoted to learning how to cooperate with myself!

From Until Today!
