    Strength inside you

    You can handle a little risk. You can handle a little discomfort.

    You can handle a little pain. You can handle a little inconvenience.

    You can handle a little embarrassment. You can handle a little effort.

    You can summon a little patience. You can summon a little discipline.

    You can do whatever must be done when the reason is meaningful enough. You can get yourself to take the necessary action when it serves a worthy purpose.

    What have you avoided, made excuses about, or put off until later just because you thought you couldn’t handle it? Imagine all the good that will come when you go ahead and utilize the strength that’s already there inside you.

    Send them another email, in fact send them couple more. Polite but pointing out how you feel and that they are really being very small minded. Hopefully someone who cares will get it and act. Also try and get your CC owner to contact them, my experience they listen ( or used to ) to owners.

    Never give up !

    Untapped potential

    Be inspired by your successes. Be even more inspired by your failures.

    Find great value in the good things you’ve done. Find even more value in all the good you have not yet brought yourself to do.

    Challenge yourself in ways no one else can challenge you. Remind yourself that no matter what you’ve achieved, there is always more you can do.

    Feel your untapped potential. Feel it so deeply you cannot avoid working to fulfill that potential.

    See the great opportunity in everything you’ve left undone. Take hold of that opportunity with a renewed sense of energy and purposeful passion.

    Think of all you’ve ever cared about and let it remind you how much you still do care. In that feeling is your potential, and in this moment is your chance to do something about it.

    Looking up

    If you want to get things looking up, start with yourself. Look up, look forward, look at the best possibilities, and look at how you can bring them to life.

    Sometimes you have to look back, sometimes you have to look down, just to establish perspective. Once you’ve done that, though, it’s time to look in a more positive direction.

    Look up, and notice there’s really no limit to how high you can go. Look up, replenish your energy, and activate your inspiration.

    Look up, and you’ll be able to see beyond the obstacles that stand in your way. Look up, toward where you most desire to go, and begin to see the positive path that will take you there.

    Feel the strength you’ve gained from the troubles you’ve been through. Look up, and give that strength a good, meaningful direction to go.

    Get yourself looking up. By so doing you’ll invite and encourage the world around you to unfold in that same direction.

    Just make the effort

    Just make the effort. Don’t overthink it, or resent it, or wish for something better.

    Go ahead and get it done. Don’t excuse your way out of it, or look for someone else to blame.

    Will it be difficult? That’s mostly a judgment call, and one that does not change the situation.

    What will change the situation is action, or lack of it. So it’s up to you, and what you do, whether that change is for the better or for the worse.

    This is a turning point. This is the time when you can do something to positively affect the way your life unfolds.

    So go ahead, do it, make the effort, give it your best. Your world is ready for your decisive action to improve it.

    Beauty in the unknown

    There is a beauty in the unknown. Embrace that beauty.

    You don’t have to have all the answers. You don’t have to have everything figured out.

    Breathe in deeply the energizing air of possibility. Imagine beyond what you’ve already imagined.

    Accept that you will make mistakes, and lose your way, and fail to understand. Realize that your competence, sense of direction, and wisdom will all grow stronger as a result.

    Through your entire life you’ve learned by experimenting. Now it is more important than ever, more useful and effective than ever, to keep experimenting.

    Beauty has always been more than what you thought it would be. Gently relax the desire for certainty and discover much more magnificence in reality.

    Showing up

    It’s okay that you don’t feel like showing up. It’s okay that you’re not excited about doing the work.

    What’s powerful, though, is to go ahead with it anyway. That’s a power you can benefit from any time you choose.

    Sure, it’s helpful to be enthusiastic about what you’re doing. Yet even when you’re not enthusiastic about it, you can still make progress.

    In fact, every little bit of that progress helps you feel like putting in more effort. By going ahead when you’re not enthusiastic, you can actually generate some enthusiasm.

    Know that, remind yourself of it, and put it to work in your favor. Success in any endeavor is largely a matter of showing up, and that’s something you can get yourself to do.

    Show up, even when you’re not thrilled about it. Give yourself the satisfaction of a job well done and you’ll feel a whole lot better.

    Competence from caring

    You are the most competent and effective when working on what you care most about. If you wish to become more competent at anything, first make sure you connect it to what you value.

    That connection will not always be obvious. Yet even when the task itself has no meaning to you, there’s a reason why you’re doing it.

    Consider that reason, and the additional reasons behind it. Get clear on the connection between the seemingly pointless activity and whatever’s driving it that’s meaningful to you.

    When you’re working on what you care about, you’ll continue discovering ways to improve your work. Your care and devotion to what you’re doing will illuminate potential improvements that would otherwise go unnoticed.

    Competence comes from caring. Genuine caring comes from seeing that just about everything you do can be connected to what you value.

    Be mindful of the reasons behind whatever you’re doing. There’s no limit to how much you can improve when you know how much you care.
