Responsibility

What Are Your Abilities?

We’re told what we can’t do. We’re told what our limitations are. Those become our “limiting beliefs”. These are the limits we set upon ourselves. Because that’s what we’re told, We eventually believe it.

Ask yourself the question: What CAN you do? Right here, right now.

Make a list of what you CAN do. Put it in writing. That makes it real. That makes it official. It’s like writing a contract with yourself.

These are my abilities:

  • I can share my vision with the world.
  • I can inspire people to become the best version of themselves.
  • I can focus on what I CAN do
  • I can give people “permission” to dream
  • I can focus on the skills I’ve gathered so far in my life to push me forward
  • I can LIVE MY DREAM
  • I can inspire others to live their dream
  • I can rally others together to work together to create the world I want to live in
  • With the help of the right people, I can create the world I envision my children living in, The World They Deserve
  • I can raise children (which I have), then,
  • I can raise others to the level I’ve raised my children and beyond
  • I can learn from the mistakes I’ve made in my life and do it right this time
  • I can use the knowledge and the resources I’ve collected so far to push me forward

What is Your Response to Those Abilities?

I could focus on the limits others have told me I have. I could live within the limitations I’ve set for myself until now. I could get a job working for someone else and build their dream. but I have a responsibility to myself to build MY dream: Life Teaches Foundation.

My kids are now grown.

I could say I’ve raised my kids to be the best version of themselves they can be. I’ve raised them to be good and kind. I’ve made my contribution to the next generation(s). I could focus on limits, like

  • I can’t do it alone
  • I can’t afford to start a business
  • I don’t have the skills or experience to run a business, let alone a nonprofit
  • I’ve never done any volunteer work or fundraising
  • I’m scared that I’ll fail

… Or, I can choose to:

focus on the list at the top of what I CAN do (and the more detailed list I didn’t want to bore you with here in one article) and find or create solutions to the problems I see.

Because The World I See Begins with Me

What are your limits? Who set those limits? Could you do more? What’s stopping you? Are you focusing on the problems or on solutions? Whichever you look for, you will find: more problems or solutions.

Your life is YOUR responsibility, Your dreams are YOUR responsibility, but that doesn’t mean you face it alone

The scariest part of any endeavor is change. We get comfortable where we are… even if we don’t like it. We know what to expect.

Someone in an abusive relationship finds comfort in knowing what to expect. They don’t like their situation, but they’ve been told they can’t do any better. They believe this is what their life will always be. They don’t dare dream of a life where they’re valued. They believe life is pain. They may believe that this is perfectly normal, that everyone deals with this. They believe they are worth less than their abuser.

Someone on the streets is told every day thru actions that they don’t matter. When people walk by and they act like they don’t exist, this affirms that they’re not worthy. They already feel that way, you’re just reminding them.

Take a moment to look at your life. What have you been told? What are your beliefs?

What are your abilities?… and what is your response to them?

Before you answer that, let me tell you:

I believe in you.

If you can dream it, you can be it. There is nothing you can’t do. 

If you need help getting there, let Life Teaches help you get there. We’re still collecting the resources we need, but we will wholeheartedly support you the best we can. As we collect more resources, they are at your disposal.

I’m willing to bet that what’s stopped you so far is that you feel alone. You feel like no one’s listening and that no one cares.

You’ve reached out before. They handed you a list of resources or maybe even set up resources for you.

Life Teaches teaches you the skills you need to use those resources. We’ll walk you through and help you understand the process.

Whether you need housing, food, a job or skills… or even just the confidence to know you can do it, we’re here to support you. Our resources may be limited right now, we’re still collecting so we can make a bigger difference.

What we can offer now is support, so you know you’re not alone. Support Life Teaches so we can provide support to those who need it most.

Welcome to Life Teaches Foundation

Life Teaches Foundation was created to empower and restore hope and faith in humanity, in the spirit of people helping people to solve all the world’s problems, one problem at a time, one person at a time.

Our goal is to celebrate success, thereby creating more success! Inspiring and Empowering people to improve their quality of life by fostering a spirit of people helping people.

If you understand only one thing I say here, let it be this: While money provides options, without people what resources do we have? All the money in the world holds no value without someone to pay for the services or goods you need.

When you have money, you can afford to pay for what you need from whoever you know can provide for you. The fewer your resources, the fewer your options. You learn to make do with what’s available.

The people you connect yourself to and the quality of those connections is what provides the resources you lack within yourself, be it experience, skills or insight.

As you learn how to do more with what you have, soon you find you have more to work with.

A grateful heart attracts more to be grateful for

You may have personal trauma that’s holding you back.

Life Teaches can coach you through the healing process so you can become the best and happiest version of yourself in every aspect of your life.

You may not know what to do next.

Taking into consideration where you are in your life and where you want to go, Life Teaches helps you find the resources you need to get you there.

You may be afraid to take the next step because new is always scary.

Even positive change is still a change and it’s just as scary because you don’t know what to expect. If you’ve tried before and failed, it can be even scarier because…..who likes to fail? Life Teaches will walk your journey with you.

In this world of more than 7.5 BILLION people, no one should feel like they have to face anything alone. With all the resources that exist today, it is unacceptable that we still hearing stories of people who are dying from exposure to severe weather! Why are people still going without food?

Same principles apply no matter what you’re trying to achieve. Life Teaches offers coaching packages to help you achieve you goals, no matter where you’re starting. Everyone started from the beginning.

Someone who has a business is just as scared to take the next step or doesn’t know what to do next. Someone who has no home is scared to take the next step or doesn’t know what to do next.

When asked who I want to help, I said I want to help those who can’t find the help they need. When told I can’t save the world, I said, “Of course not. Not alone, I can’t”

By making our world better, we make the world we share a better place.

With your donation, we can help someone who can’t afford the help they need.
