 Take Your Shot “You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take” – Wayne Gretzky

How many shots have you not taken?

Like many of us, you probably have a list of things you have been wanting to do but have never gotten around to. Like writing that book, going to Paris, asking the cute girl with the green eyes in your office for a date, starting your own unique business. And you probably have your reasons for not attempting to do so. Fear of failure, disappointment, or even sheer embarrassment. And whether you think these reasons are valid or not is irrelevant. What is relevant is that another best seller is yet to be born, Paris awaits you with its french cuisine and side walk cafes, the cute girl in the office just might say yes and another Apple, Facebook, or Amazon story is waiting to be told.

Failure isn’t missing the shots, Failure is never even trying in the first place.

And this brings me to another relevant quote:

“I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.” – Thomas Edison

Where would we be if Thomas had given up, or worse yet, not even taken his shot. We would all be stumbling around in the dark.

It’s time today to take your shot. You know the one I am talking about. You know it very well. You have known it for a very long time.

Today, right now, do one single thing that will move you in the direction of your dream. Make a phone call, send an email, do some research online, join a mastermind group for support, just one simple thing to get the momentum going.

Remember “Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. Begin it now.”  ~ Goethe

Yes! Dear heart. Begin it now!

I have been offering a daily “Insights and Inspirations” mail out for several years now and from the response I have received and the questions sent in from my subscribers, I asked myself what it was I wanted to share with these wonderful people? How could I open their hearts?

What was it they truly desired? What were their GREATEST WISHES?  What could I say that might inspire them, comfort them, make them think, cause them to laugh, ease their burdens, and motivate them to move forward with their dreams? What if I offered them a new way of looking at the world, outside the box, or made them feel they were given a nice warm hug of encouragement for each day?

What if, simply by absorbing my words of daily inspiration, they were transported to a magical place where anything was possible?

And so I came up with the idea to create a book about granting wishes for these people.

This e-book encompasses the truths I have learned along my own way, the insights I have acquired, and the knowledge gained.

 Launch of my NEW E Book!Launched now on Amazon entitled:

TODAY, I WISH FOR YOU – Inspiration, Happiness, Love, Insights, Kindness, Abundance, Passion, Appreciation, Joy, Prosperity, Free Money. 30 DAYS of inspirational words to uplift, comfort and inspire. Kindle Edition

You can purchase it at the following link:

PLease let me know which are your favorite wish days in the e-book by commenting below. I look forward to hearing from you.

Wishing you a wonderful day.

Love and blessings, Veronica Hay

 Remember To Be Here NowFor today’s Inspirational Words…

The next person, place or thing you encounter may be the most important in your life so far. Will you remember to


Not thinking of all of the things you have to do today.
Not dwelling on the unpleasant encounter you had with your friend, or spouse or child this morning.
Not worrying about your next bill to pay or how you’re going to pay it.
Not grieving over the loss of someone who may actually be trying to reach you,
if you were silent and peaceful and present.
Not fuming to yourself about the the guy who cut you off in traffic this morning.
Not stressing about your upcoming job performance review.
Not imagining the worse case scenario of your visit with your dentist or
doctor later this week.

And the list goes on and on and on …

Life is short.
It can end in a moment and it has for some people.
A moment they were not expecting.

This is your wake up call.

So, I’m asking you again.
Will you remember to BE HERE NOW.
In this moment. It’s yours. It’s got your name on it.
Take it. Make it matter!

Take care and have a beautiful day.
Love and blessings, Veronica

 If You Can Do These Things For Me, You Will Have Served Me WellDon’t feed me all the cliches today and the sugary sap. Give me honesty. Speak from your heart. That I can take.

Don’t quote me from your latest self-help book and regurgitate the contents. Tell me how you really feel and what your soul is saying.

Don’t fill my head with worn out words and platitudes. Fill my heart with meaning, substance, purpose, value.

Don’t judge me by your standards or their measure. Just hold me and love me and make me feel better.

Don’t tell me of things you’ve only read about.
Speak to me of things you know in your gut, so I can know them too.

Don’t offer me advice. I haven’t asked you for it.
Offer me a hand and a shoulder to cry on, when I need one.

Don’t tell me what I should or shouldn’t do.
Show me what is possible, and let me find my way.

Don’t regale me with your conquests and your victories.
Speak to me of heartbreak and of joy, of sadness and of glory.

Don’t deny me my emotions or rob me of my feelings.
Allow me the space to let them surface and move on.

Don’t hide your pain from me. Or your grief and sorrow.
Tell me how it felt and how you made it through.

Don’t try to fix me or change me or make me better.
Show me where I’m already shining and point the light there.

If you can do these things for me, you will have served me well.

Just Showing Up – Copyright © by Veronica Hay

 Just Showing Up by Veronica HayThere is a lot to be said for simply showing up each day.

For actually having the courage to get out of bed and try again. To think, hope and pray that things might be different today, better somehow, that there may actually be some light at the end of the tunnel.

Showing up is the first step and a very good one indeed for many of us. Perhaps from there, the unseen forces can actually find a way to get to us, through the whispers or the nudges or the seemingly random turn of events in our day. Perhaps something will move inside us that we hadn’t felt before and for a moment will sustain and comfort us.

Showing up can mean different things to different people. For some, it simply means having the strength to actually pull back the covers and get out of bed. For others, it may mean planting yourself at the starting point in the race of your life and really going for it. For a few, it may mean just lying there and thinking of reasons why you should show up, keep going, or not.

It is a first step. There is always a first step in everything and often it is that first step that makes the difference between victory and defeat, between knowing and doubt, between strength and despair. So many of us take this all for granted and do it mindlessly, without a thought as to where we are going today, and the significance of the events that are about to take place. Not giving any regard as to how we could change the world with one single word planted in the heart of another at just the right moment, one tender utterance that may change the course of destiny for another soul who happened along our path that day.

Awareness and consciousness are the key. They are everything. Everything that we have ever wanted awaits us there, yet we are usually somewhere else; looking, seeking, trying, and never realizing what is right in front of us.

But showing up takes us out of these places for a little while and plants us in the moment of surrender if only for a second; with no agenda, and no demands and no expectations as to how it should look. Showing up is enough. It is a great secret of life; it is much more than enough; it is everything.

When you were born, you simply showed up, naked, unable to walk or talk or really do much of anything. And from that one simple moment of existence you made it here, or you would not be reading this today. You made it this far. It was no accident. Remember that, and bless yourself today for doing it again, just showing up.

Love and blessings, Veronica
