FREE Help Now

Free help? Really? Yes! Inspiring quotes, poems, inspirations and more.
This section contains free excerpts from the book that can help you or friend right now. You just may find a few things here that will get you thinking or better yet acting on clarifying your calling and increasing your happiness. Read on. One of the goals of this book is to help as many young adults as possible get greater clarity and confidence in God’s Great Plans for them. Think about it… You and I can invest or in some cases waste a lot of time trying to find the answers to happiness and greater fulfillment in life or we can choose to learn from other people's research and experience. Better still, we can go to the source of life. We can talk with, and listen to, the one who knew us before we were born. Why would we not ask God for help and assistance? It’s like asking the architect for a copy of the building plans… it just makes sense!

The Happinness/Success Secret

If you were to research all the ways for someone to be a success
and you were to list out all the steps it takes to find happiness,
Sooner or later you would find what others have discovered too…
just having the steps or formulas doesn’t make it come to you.
You acknowledge most good things require planning, work and perspiration, plus there is often sacrifice when dealing with a problem or frustration. “It’s the journey not the destination” yes, you’ve heard that said before, but something else seems missing, you know there must be more. So you begin to search for some kind of cause-effect relations
in the people that are happy; or sad with their situations. You soon discover that the happiest seem to make the best of every day and you notice a lot of gratitude in what they do and say. But you keep a healthy skepticism saying, I’ll believe more when I see it. As you watch for some kind of proof, like a lightning bolt to hit. Yet no flashes or miracles seem to instantly appear… and still you’re drawn to something, when the happiest are near. It seems they’re seeking for God’s will,on ways they best can serve... and not for selfish reasons or for what they might deserve.
When you notice this, you listen more and become more observant.
Even prayer changes to simply “Lord, help me to be a better servant.”
So in the future if you’re asked for the secret, that makes our dreams come true? Just say “you’ll find success and happiness, when you ask God’s will for you”.

Sermons We See
I’d rather see a sermon
than hear one any day.
I’d rather one should walk with me
than merely point the way.
For the eye’s a better pupil
and more willing than the ear.
Fine council is confusing,
but example is always clear.
And the best of all the preachers
are those who live their creed.
For to see the good in action
is what everybody needs.
I can soon learn how to do it
if you let me see it done.
I can watch your hands in action,
but your tongue may too fast run.
And the lectures you deliver
may be wise and true,
But I’d rather get my learning
by observing what you do.
For I may misunderstand you
and the high advice you give.
But there’s no misunderstanding
how you act and how you live.
Edgar Guest
Learning From Inspiring Words
In addition to learning from the habits and actions of people
around us, we will explore how words – both written and spoken
– can inspire us to see God’s plan for us as well!

I believe that everyone should surround himself with a personal
collection of inspirational quotes, poems and verses. Below, and
throughout this book, are a few of the many inspirational verses
I continue to collect even to this day. Consider using some or all
of these quotations as a start (or an addition) to your own
collection of inspiring quotes and verses.
The only things that endure beyond time and into eternity...
are those things done with selfless love.
Fr. Robert Werenski

One the most beautiful compensations of this life is that man
cannot sincerely help another without helping himself.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

I have made my chief study in the book of Charity; it teaches
St. Dominic

The habit of insisting upon the best of which you are capable,
and of always demanding of yourself the highest, never accepting
the lowest, will make the difference between mediocrity or
failure, and a successful career.
Orison Swett Marden

I long to accomplish a great and noble task, but it is my chief
duty to accomplish humble tasks as though they were great and
noble. The world is moved along, not only by the mighty shoves
of its heroes, but also by the aggregate of the tiny pushes of each
honest worker.
Helen Keller
