A man was exploring caves by the seashore. In one of the caves he found a canvas bag with a bunch of hardened clay vessels. It was like someone had rolled balls of clay and left them out in the sun to bake.
They didn't look like much, but they intrigued the man, so he took the bag out of the cave with him. As he strolled along the beach, he would throw the clay balls one at a time out into the ocean as far as he could.
He thought little about it, until he dropped one of the clay balls and it cracked open on a rock. Inside was a beautiful, precious stone!
Excited, the man started breaking open the remaining clay vessels. Each contained a similar treasure. He found thousands of dollars worth of jewels in the 20 or so clay balls he had left. Then it struck him.
He had been on the beach a long time. He had thrown maybe 50 or 60 of the clay balls with their hidden treasure into the ocean waves. Instead of thousands of dollars in treasure, he could have taken home tens of thousands, but he had just thrown it away!
It's like that with people. We look at someone, maybe even ourselves, and we see the external clay vessel. It doesn't look like much from the outside. It isn't always beautiful or sparkling, so we discount it.
We see that person as less important than someone more beautiful or stylish or well known or wealthy, we have not taken the time to find the treasure hidden inside that person.
There is a treasure in each one of us. If we take the time to get to know that person, then the clay begins to peel away and the brilliant gem begins to shine forth.
May we not come to the end of our lives and find out that we have thrown away a fortune in friendships because the gems were hidden in bits of clay.
Now go out there and be a vibrational treasure, the way the Universe intended you to be!!

Believing in yourself is paramount if you ever want to succeed in life. It is about self-motivation & overcoming your fears to make your dream become a reality. The first step is having the ability to grasp the notion that you are capable of doing amazing things when you believe in yourself.
Each of us have unlimited potential to do something great but ONLY when you are willing to take the risks and work the plan of action you set out for yourself. Your mind is owned and operated by YOU, so don’t allow the trolls and “neigh sayers” to get in your head, because when you do, you are finished. Don’t allow yourself to get the life blood sucked out of you by trying to live up to the expectations of others. Always surround yourself with people who believe in you and what you are doing.
Self-doubt is like an incurable disease that gets into your system if you don’t stay focused and on course. It is said that faith can move mountains, so never doubt your own power, because you are capable of achieving anything if you are motivated and set your mind, body and soul to it.
Being negative is very easy if you buy into it. The half empty glass concept is the easy way out, because if you look at it from another perspective, you always have the ability to refill the glass – if you want to! When you stop comparing yourself to others and live up to your own expectations you are navigating in the right direction of being successful.
When we step into our vibration and believe in our “self”, because in reality it is already a part of us, the transition is of ease and grace....
Finally remember to always live up to your OWN expectations because it is YOU and only you who counts. As Zig Ziglar said “Put all excuses aside and remember this: YOU are capable”.
