In Life, ‘Run With Endurance’

“The Real Voyage of discovery consists not in seeing new landscapes, but in having new eyes.” ~ Proust 

“I believe that God made me for a purpose. . . . But he also made me fast. And when I run, I feel his pleasure. You were right; it is Fun! But that isn’t all. . . .” ~ Eric Little, Chariots of Fire

I find that if you want to use the story to deal with the ups and downs of life that come at you, it helps if you listen with your heart and head, and fill in the story with your own experience to see what is true for you!

Run To Win

1 Corinthians 9:24 – The Need for Self-Discipline –24 Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize.

Train With Diligence

1 Corinthians 9:25-27 – 25 Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last, but we do it to get a crown that will last forever.

Run With Patience – Let Go of Every Burden

Hebrews 12:1 –  Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,


Follow Good Example

Hebrews 12:2 – Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

“You must be a good follower before you become a good leader.”

Eat Nutritious Food

Hebrews 5:12-14 “First principles” are fundamental, rudimentary, elementary things. There are things with which we begin, but we have to get off the dime, as it were. Something must be done in order to increase, because if we remain at the starting point, we prove to be not very usable. How much good to human society is a baby? Even so, a newborn Christian is not a great deal of use to. This situation is remedied by growth.

From unskilled to skilled, from oblivious and uncomprehending to discerning—a process happens?

Drink Water Freely – Drink Plenty of Water

Revelation 22:17 – 17 And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.

Compete According to the Rules

2 Timothy 2:5 – Similarly, anyone who competes as an athlete does not receive the victor’s crown except by competing according to the rules.

Be Confident of Winning Your Race and Gaining the Prize

Romans 15:13 – 13 May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

It’s not the story; it’s what you take away from it that makes it so powerful. That’s up to you, of course! 

The Olympic ideal of citius, altius, fortius (swifter, higher, stronger) is addressed to everyone, not only runners. It is, ultimately a question of growth, of being more, of being the best version of you. Running however, is as much mental, spiritual, and intellectual as it is physical! 

“I give faith a fighting chance and I still feel small when I stand beside the ocean.”

They shall walk and not faint.”


Attitude of Gratitude

Develop an Attitude of Gratitude

2016 was a very profound year in my life! In fact, the most profound! In January of 2016, my son Christopher became a victim of suicide. In April of 2016 my brother Michael became a victim of suicide. I was encouraged to further develop and strengthen my personal ‘Attitude of Gratitude’ as part of my ongoing recovery from the trauma of my family deaths. This is what I learned!

Attitude of Gratitude | Hughie Bagnell | The foundation to all growth is being grateful for everything in your life, even if it is not ideal right now! “Gratitude is a high-energy emotion.” When you can feel grateful for the things in your life and view them as opportunities to grow and learn, you develop the necessary skills to bring you closer to your ideal self. In doing so, you become very powerful!

“Develop an attitude of gratitude and give thanks for everything that happens to you, knowing that every step forward is a step toward achieving something bigger and better than your current situation.”  ~ Brian Tracy

Gratitude will shift your mindset.

Attitude of Gratitude | Hughie Bagnell | www.HughieBagnell.netFor something to change in your life, one of two things has to happen: your life changes or you do.  Waiting for life to change is a pretty passive solution. Open your eyes to an attitude of gratitude and all of a sudden things start to fall into place. Be proactive, not passive and by switching your mindset you will see life change!

How? Start by keeping a daily list of events that you are grateful for each night. It is usually called a ‘Gratitude Journal’!

Gratitude creates solutions and is contagious.

Adopting an attitude of gratitude takes you out of a problem and into a solution. Developing a best-outcomes mindset is a skill we need in life and our decision-making. It allows us to see solutions where others only see obstacles.

How? Watch your words. What you say is usually how you act, so be aware of complaining and replace whines with positive words. Be the change and watch as the world changes around you and your attitude of gratitude.

Be a Giver and Meditate!

Negative feelings, many times can be caused by focusing on the perceived negative aspects of your life. This feeling is instantly shifted by giving unconditionally to others.

Meditation is one of the most effective ways to increase your positivity! The practice and skill of meditation expands your awareness and allows for a very clear connection between mind, body and soul!

Remember these keys!
  • What you focus on you find
  • What you focus on seems real
  • What you focus on grows
  • What you focus on you ultimately become
Attitude of Gratitude | | Hughie BagnellCount your blessings and you will have an attitude of gratitude!

Gratitude nurtures within us a positive, joy-filled flow of life which does give birth to inner peace and fulfillment!

Be curious about what you naturally focus on! Is it positive or negative?

Develop an Attitude of Gratitude and shift your mindset!


To Your Success,

Success Is On Your Horizon

Success Is On Your Horizon 

You can start at anytime if you want to be successful. But you have to start. You won’t accomplish anything if you wait for all the possible objections to be overcome. Taking a new step, uttering a new word, is what people tend to fear the most.

Success is On Your Horizon | | Hughie BagnellDon’t be afraid to live. Don’t wait for things to change. Don’t wait until you have more time, until you are less tired, until you get the promotion, until you settle down, until, until, until. Don’t wait for a major event in your life to occur before you begin to live.

Success Is On Your Horizon | | Hughie BagnellBegin where you are. Work where you are. The hour you may be wasting now, dreaming of some far off success, is crowded with tremendous possibilities. When you take the first step, your mind will mobilize all its forces to assist you. Once you have started, all that is within and around you will come to your assistance.

The only way to start down the path to life success is to start!

Characteristics of Success

Characteristics of Success

What makes a person successful? Why is it that some people seem to live lives filled with triumph and achievement, while others fail at most of the things they do or at least don’t succeed to any great degree? Have you ever asked yourself those questions? I have. And the answers are very revealing.

In a latest U.S. census report that I have seen, 9.2% of all U.S. workers earn less than $11,000 a year, and only 5% make more than $145,000. WOW! When I read the report, it started me thinking about the ingredients of success — what characteristics the people who are successful have in common.

How To Make Change a positive Part of Your Life | | Hughie BagnellI don’t believe that anyone is destined by fate for success! I also don’t believe that success is reserved for those with a fortunate heritage or who grow up in an enriching environment. In short, it’s not a private club for those who just happened to be born wealthy, intelligent or attractive.

Human history speaks to the fact success is available to anyone who can overcome his or her shortcomings. Given that people from all cultures and all walks of life have lived successful lives, it raises the question, “What do they have in common?”

Attitudes and Actions That Lead to Success

After thinking about it and trying to identify the differences between people who succeed and those who fail, I came to the conclusion that most of it has to do with attitudes and actions! Successful people think and do things differently than people who fail!

Characteristics of Success

  • desire and drive
  • determination
  • commitment and dedication
  • discipline
  • courage
  • perseverance
  • optimism
  • attitude of abundance
  • high self-esteem
  • education (formal or self)
  • experience
  • organization

Positive thinking and acting leads to positive results and vice-versa!

How Progress Depends on Diligence and Perseverance

Progress Requires Change

The fact that changes come into our lives means that we can be prepared to handle them courageously and triumphantly. Through life experiences, often brought about by change, we may gain mastery of our emotions, our minds and bodies, our thoughts and feelings.

Enrich the Lives of Others | | Hughie BagnellThe way to make conscious change, achieve new goals, and perfect our skills is through diligent practice and study on a consistent basis. This means making the commitment to develop our self-discipline and to persist and endure until the goal is met.

Don’t give up easily!

You have the ability to make striking progress in the pursuit of your goals!

Successful Action Compounds Your Results

Successful Action Compounds Your Results!

Success is the sum of small efforts, repeated consistently day in and day out!

The majority of people take the first step and then stop. Yet, with every additional step you take, the value of your first step is enhanced immensely! | Hughie BagnellAll masters of success utilize the power of momentum and distinguish themselves by adding a second, a third, and perhaps a fourth step in a continuous line.

Unfortunately, there is no royal road to anything. One thing at a time, all things in succession is a  rule of life. That which grows fast, withers as rapidly. That which grows slowly, endures.

Appreciate the bottom steps or rings on your ascent to greatness!

How Do You Spend Your Time

How Do You Spend Your Time?

A frequent statement that I hear from some of my friends and team mates is that they “just don’t have enough time” to do the things that I encourage to help make them successful in business, network or internet marketing. When I remind them that they need only 7 to 10 hours a week (on average) to generate a residual income, some reply that they don’t have that much time.

When I hear this, sometimes I feel like they’re saying they just are not organized enough to get the most from the time they have available. The old adage, “if you want something done, give it to a busy person,” would not apply to them. They are busy, but perhaps in a disorganized and unproductive way!

To test how well organized you are and how you spend your time, take out a piece of paper and write down the average amount of sleep you get each day, the average amount of time you spend preparing and/or eating meals, commuting to work, working, getting ready to leave your house or apartment, watching television (be honest), in leisure activities, and finally, doing any other activity. It wouldn’t surprise me if your total exceeds 24 hours! That would tell me that your days are busy, but not necessarily well-organized and productive. 

How Do You Spend Your Time | | Hughie Bagnell To gain control of your time, you must closely examine each one of the activities listed previously and determine where you might reasonably cut back or even eliminate one or more of your activities. You might find it necessary to modify some of your long-established habits to accommodate your new home business activities. For example, reducing the amount of time you spend watching television or, perhaps, cutting back on the amount of sleep you get by 30 to 60 minutes a night, might free up the time you need to become a successful home business owner.  

It is also helpful to combine activities to make better use of your time. If you want to spend time with your family, for example, and you also want to exercise, then exercise with your family. Get the idea?

How Self-Control Will Lead To Success

How Self-Control Will Lead To Success

If we learn to take responsibility for every area of our lives, we can also choose to create in our lives the direction and focus that we need.

One of the best ways to exhibit self-control is know that,

  1. faith, not fear;
  2. love, not hate;
  3. joy, not sorrow;
  4. peace, not tension;
  5. freedom, not bondage;

are the fundamentals of success!

Success takes practice, and if you want to feel like a success, it is important for you to begin to acknowledge your successes right now.

Listen to the encouragement you receive from mentors, coaches, parents, teachers, employers, and friends.

As you build on success, you may discover that you can create this again and again in various aspects of living.

Success feeds on itself and creates more success!
