Without Courage, WISDOM bears no fruit

Life is too long to live in fear of the past repeating itself, in this fortnights newsletter I wanted to share a personal experience with you.

"Without courage, wisdom bears no fruit." Baltasar Gracian


Last week, I spoke at an open mic for the first time.. Even though I'm a public speaker, and I've spoken in front of hundreds this wasn't something I thought I would do. I wanted to share and release the painful buried memories that no one had yet heard, things I would have rather forgotten.

As a speaker, your past mess is your powerful message so courage is essential.

When you open your life up, you allow people to judge you based on your past but without opening up, it is difficult to find the message. As I stood up there, I was shaking with nervousness but the freedom I felt at the end of my talk was one of the most elevating emotions I have ever felt. My story touched people, let them see their lessons and gave me the courage to continue sharing.

Like many people, I moved through life, repeating the same painful cycles but never becoming any wiser. We become wise as a result of our past experience only when we are courageous. We can all be an inspiration to others by being not just what we do, but who we really are.

"Wisdom is what happens when we let go of the pain and retain the lesson." (Sophia Bailey)

If you have truly learnt something, don't let pain stop you from being an inspiration. When we begin to release the pain, the lesson becomes clear and the more courageously you can do this, the freer you will become.
What did you experience that made you wiser?
I am currently working on a compilation of wisdom quotes with my children as they are full of wise words and often cause me to stop and think. This one from my daughter Cleopatra (aged twelve) reminds us to make a start, however small
"It is the small steps that lead you to victory. Just because they are small doesn't mean they are insignificant, it just means you are too big to see them." Cleopatra Bailey

Ready to make a start?
Check out some of the articles below, I chose them as they cover some of the issues we all face


Sending Love as Always

p.s Here is some feedback from the open mic session

"Hi Sophia, I saw you last week at blessed souls. I just wanted to big you up for that poem, it really touched my soul. I myself haven't been in your situation, but I have been that low where I felt like I didn't have anybody around me who cared. Your poem reminded me of the many times that my REAL friends have come to my rescue and also the amount of times that God Himself has sent me signs to let me l know that he's there and looking out for me. Anyway I just wanted to thank you for sharing your poem and I hope you share some more of your work soon."

Take care, God bless

There is Nothing Wrong with Being Wealthy from Entrepreneurial Activities
By Lance Winslow


Sometimes people complain about wealthy folks and entrepreneurs and demand that they re-distribute their wealth. But, before you attack them, I'd like you to consider something. You see, I put together a little video to make people think. No one should ever feel guilty for being a successful business person or entrepreneur:

YOU CAN TELL BY THE COMPANY PEOPLE CHOOSE WHAT SORT OF CHARACTER THEY HAVE
By Peter Rose


As the saying goes, "Birds of a feather flock together." We usually choose friends and business associates who like the same things we do, people who share the same values. If you choose happy, positive, productive companions, the odds are that you are or will soon become happy, positive, and productive yourself. Unfortunately, the reverse is also true. Unhappy, negative, destructive people are sure to drag you down with them.

To Have what you in life is easy, Just Behave
By Roger Millar


Behave means BE HAVE

In order to have what we want when we want it , we need to be who we need to be to
manifest it.

When a mother tells their son to "behave" in essence she is saying
In order to have what you want in your life, you need to be that which will
enable me to give you what you want, it's automatic. The universe and
God works the same way, "As above, so below"
