What is the Difference Between Wealth & Being Rich?

“Pity the man who inherits a million and isn’t a millionaire. Here’s what would be pitiful,if your income grew and you didn’t.” –Jim Rohn, entrepreneur, author, motivational speaker

Hey everybody — it’s Daniel Wiafe, your motivational coach back with some words of inspiration to help you become abundant in your life, wealth, health & relationships.

Today, we will be looking at what the difference is between wealth and being rich.

Just because a person is rich or has more money in their little finger than Scrooge McDuck… doesn’t mean that that person is wealthy.

Wealth defined is, “an abundance or profusion of anything; plentiful amount”

This means that for a person to be wealthy — they need to be an abundant person. Abundance includes money, obviously… but it includes so much more than just money or physical riches. Read more »

The 3 Secrets to Living Your BEST Life!

“Health is the greatest gift, contentment the greatest wealth, faithfulness the best relationship.” –Buddha

Hello everybody, this is Daniel Wiafe here again… and I would like to wish you a happy Friday today! I am up and at ’em at 4 o’clock in the morning writing this… which is FAR too early for me! 😉

Today’s motivational quote is just AWESOME… and it really hit home for me personally when I stumbled upon it last week.

“Health is the greatest gift, contentment the greatest wealth, faithfulness the best relationship.”

I believe it resounded so strongly in me because of how simple… yet POWERFUL this truth is.

You see my friend, we all seek to be happy and to be fulfilled… and I believe that the 3 major components of a person having the life that they dream of revolves around that person being balanced in the areas of their HEALTH, their WEALTH and their RELATIONSHIPS.

I also believe that TRUE happiness comes when we seek SPIRITUALITY (a true relationship with God) in those areas. Don’t just seek God alone or independently of everything else in your life… but seek God FIRST in your health… seek Him FIRST in your wealth and seek him FIRST in your relationships.

So, let’s get at it… what are the 3 Secrets to You Living Your Best Life? Read more »

Don’t Worry About Tommorow

“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” (Jesus, Matthew 6:34)

Don’t worry about anything in your life. There may be things out there, people out there, objectives before you… that seem like they are that much LARGER than you… but don’t allow it to put an unfounded worry or a fear in you.

Today, let your mantra be that you will be “Worry Free”. Make that declaration in your life, that you and your mind and heart are a “Worry Free” zone. Like Bob Marley said, “Don’t Worry, Be Happy!”

Put everything that you feel is larger than you… or out of your control… into the hands of Jesus, the author and the finisher of your faith… and accept the fact that everything will turn out for the BEST in your life!

You can do it. There is nothing that is strong enough or tough enough to hold you down… so NEVER allow worry to weigh you down. Put your faith in a power that is MUCH greater than yourself. For more ONE great tip you can apply IMMEDIATELY to your life to remove worry, please read this post.

Be blessed and have a GREAT day! Make sure you sign up for my weekly daily motivation newsletter at the top-left hand side of the screen. 🙂

Why You Should Not Be Anxious About Anything

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.” (Paul, Philippians 4:6)

Good morning everybody…. it’s Daniel Wiafe here again, your personal motivation coach… here with some high-energy motivation to get you going on your day!

Today, we will keep this post short… and discuss why you shouldn’t be anxious about anything in this life

And for many of you reading this right now, it seems like a good thing to say (that you shouldn’t be anxious)… and some of you may be saying right now, “But Daniel, it’s easy for you to say don’t be anxious about anything… but that’s a pretty HARD feat for me to pull off!”

And my response to those people would be: “You’re VERY correct… it is hard to do and implement… but nothing worth value in your life comes without hard work or effort on your part”

Let’s first look at the definition of the word, anxiety:

1. Experiencing worry, unease, or nervousness, typically about an imminent event or something with an uncertain outcome.
2. Causing or characterized by worry or nervousness. Read more »

Do You Guard Your Heart?

My wife Melinda and I on vacation.

“God gave us two ears to hear, two eyes to see and two hands to hold. But why did God give us only one heart? Because he wants us to find the other one. HAVE YOU FOUND YOURS?” –Unknown

Good morning everybody… it’s Daniel Wiafe back again, motivating you to live your BEST life ever… in your health, wealth and relationships!

If you think about it… some of the most important things in life that God has blessed us with comes in pairs.

Our hands, our eyes, our feet, our lungs, our arms… and EVEN our hearts. Our heart is a representation of the love, affection and partnership that we need in life. Read more »

Ask, Seek, Knock

“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.” –Jesus, Matthew 7:7

Not only is God the Creator of the universe, the galaxies, the ends of the earth and everything that is in it… He is also, most importantly your Heavenly Father.

When you think of a good father… what do you think of?

You think of one who loves you, cares for you, will do anything for you, will put his life in line for yours, may punish you if you mess up at times– but it’s all for your good and always out of love.

That is the same with God. He is your Heavenly Father who LOVES you and wants you to have the best… because you are a direct reflection of Him… made in His image and likeness for glory, power and dominion.

So today… expect the BEST in your life. Expect God to bless you.

If you have a need in life… don’t be afraid to ASK God… because He will answer you accordingly. Read more »

The Power of Gratitude

“Have an attitude of gratitude and thank God for ALL He has blessed you with!” –Daniel Wiafe (motivational speaker & life coach)

Did you know that you have access to a form of power that is so enormous… that if you chose to release it, there is virtually nothing you couldn’t be, do or have?

…and it’s something which we all have access to and it comes to us for free. This form of power is a God-given gift, given to all men and women free and clear of any charge.

This form of power which I speak of is this: GRATITUDE

One of the best definitions of gratitude is, “The quality of being thankful; readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness.”

When we instill within ourselves a constant and unrelenting attitude of gratefulness in every aspect of our lives… we are opening up for God to move supernaturally through our day and bless us above and beyond what we could imagine!

But most people tend to get caught up with the worries of life. Most people get caught up with the complications of life. Most of us, if I can be truthful get caught up with who we are angry at… or in fear of.

Having feelings of worry, fear, anxiety and all that mess is for the birds my friend!

Let go of those down and depressing feelings that leave you in misery… and switch to a BETTER way. Have an attitude of gratitude because there is POWER in that!

Be thankful for everything large and small. Thank God every morning for waking you up. Be thankful for your health. Be thankful for having a roof over your head. Be thankful for having enough food to eat. Be thankful for the clothes on your back. Be grateful for the family and friends that you have. Be thankful for the money that you do have RIGHT NOW (no matter how much it is).

There is A LOT of power that lies in you having an attitude of gratitude today, so why not walk in it right this second? 😉

[Daily Encouragement] Start Your Day with God

“But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.” –Jesus, Matthew 6:33

Have you ever noticed that if something bad happens to you first thing in the morning when you wake up… that the rest of your day generally follows suit?

For example, if you start your day out an jump out of bed… and stub your toe… *BAM*, the rest of your day tends to pretty much be shot.

Or perhaps you can remember in the past the times that you got into an argument with your spouse or significant other first thing in the morning… and you can remember how it pretty much ruined your day.

What we do or what happens to us FIRST thing in the morning affects the rest of our day… so common sense would tell us we should aim to start our day off on a positive, friendly or perhaps energetic way… if we want the rest of our day to be good!

By seeking God first in the morning… we are tuning into our Creator and the one who made us, formed us and created us in His image and in His likeness.

And when we tune into Him and seek him in the first part of our day… we are taking hold and claim of the peace, the joy, the energy, the positiveness, and the warmth that only God can provide to us… and this will last us the rest of our day!

For the next 30 days, I challenge you to try seeking God first in the morning. Take at least 5 minutes in the morning and devote it to God… and I bet you that the other 1,435 minutes that are left in your day will be the BEST minutes of your life!

Wake up in the morning… and put your mind on Him and thank Him for all that He has blessed you with (a roof over your head, good health in your body, your family, the fact that you can lay your head down in peace).

After you show Him gratitude for everything… thank God in advance for the GREAT day that you will have.

Have a GREAT and an AWESOME day, and see you tomorrow!

-Daniel
