Bring Joy And Laugh At Anything

By | articles, life lessons, personal development

We all feel it sometimes – the urge to give in when things get tough. The bill collectors are calling, a loved one just passed, you got pulled over and written a ticket, the list goes on and on. You’re now in a state of stress and unhappiness and it’s easy to get caught there for an extended amount of time. How do you turn a negative into a positive? Well, let us break it down to the basics.  

“A year from now you will have wished you started today” – Karen Lamb

I sat down with my good friend, Roman Garcia whos an entrepreneur, comedian, and talk show host to dive into how he makes the most of every situation. In this recent interview, Roman explained that it came down to two simple tricks that he uses to overcome a fearful or stressed mindset. The first key, break it down to the ridiculous. Create scenarios that endorse laughter for yourself. His second key, feed your spirit. Take a moment in those hard times to centre yourself back into the now. We’ll go in depth on how you can achieve each key and create your everlasting moments to happiness.

“I can accept failure, everyone fails at something. But I can’t accept not trying” – Michael Jordan

  • Break It Down To The Ridiculous

We all have days where something crazy happens and it knocks us off our feet. If you have a ‘bad’ situation make it so crazy that you can laugh at it. Not so much that it’s hurtful but crazy enough that you find humour in the situation. I will use the example of a debt collector who keeps calling. If you have experienced this or haven’t you probably know someone who may. Debt collectors are not a fun topic to think about. The owing money you may not have is daunting and confronting someone who’s asking for it can be stressful. To break this cycle we need to learn how we can lighten up the situation so we need to ask ourselves questions that help us to do so. To get on the brighter side we’re going to break it down to the ridiculous by asking these questions:

  1. What do they look like?
  2. How would you act?
  3. Are they nerdy?
  4. What would make you feel differently?

These questions are just examples but break it down so ridiculous that you have to laugh. We’re trying to see the bright side of this situation. Laughter has a component that allows you to let go of stress and that is what we are endorsing.

  • Feed Your Spirit

When you feed your spirit through prayer or meditation you can ask for whatever you want. Don’t just wait until things go wrong, go ahead and ask. But, don’t just ask and move on. You have to listen to when you’re putting out those prayers, information is going to come back to you and tell you what your next step is. So make sure your prayer and what you’re asking for is very clear and specific in what you want. Don’t just say “I want money”, but say how much. Don’t say “I need help”, be specific with what you need help with. If you start doing that and ask for specific needs or questions, and then stop and listen (even had a notepad handy), you’ll start to receive answers. This takes some practice, but if you spend the time doing it, you’re actually going to feed your spirit because you’ll start to have understandings and revelations about yourself and even how the world works. You’ll understand that you’re not a victim, but really in control of anything that you want. Obstacles are a chance for us to grow and evolve. The more you practice this, the more you will get results.

These are great go-to strategies that I learned from my dear friend, Roman. It’s important to remember these strategies to keep yourself mentally and emotionally strong. If you feed your spirit daily, train your mindset, and remember to laugh you will be on a path of great transformation and happiness. Feel free to ask me questions at any time if you need help in any of these areas as I will surely do my best to help.

Your Three Step Guide For Massive Transformation

By | articles, life lessons, manifestation, personal development

Moments Of Massive Transformation

It doesn’t take long for someone to realize that they may not be where they wish to be in life. This was the case for the entrepreneur, author, and transformation coach, Pattee Brown. In a recent interview I conducted with Pattee she informed me that she was not always this person that everyone sees her as now. In her twenties, she was naive, shy, and overweight. This did not stop her desire to achieve more in life. Pattee ended up losing over 150 pounds and achieving much abundance in her life. Pattee knew she had to change and what you will find is that she revealed a simple three step process that anyone can follow to achieve radical transformation in their lives. We’ll dive into how you can identify, research, and construct an action plan for your transformation.

How You Transform

You may not realize but you are always transforming. From the time you were born to where you are now you have experienced many different variations of transformation. As human beings, we tend to attach ourselves to things that bring comfort and joy and this may not always be a healthy option for us. If we do not take control of our situations and our emotional wellbeing then things tend to get out of hand. True transformation comes from Identifying the problem so you can start taking proactive steps to overcoming. Here are the three steps to achieving that.

1) Identify The Problem

Are you overweight as Pattee once was? Do you have a dis-ease hidden within the body? Are you not progressing fast enough in your personal development? The first step to creating massive transformation is acknowledging that you are unhappy with a result in your life. Whatever that result may write it down so you can see it, hear it, and feel it. Once you have written things down you are unsatisfied with move on to the next step.

2) Ask Why

Once you identify an issue it’s time to start digging. Look into why you may be overweight – have you been eating too much? Are you eating the right foods? If you have a disease look back to when you were healthy, just before you were sick. What changes occur? Did you have emotional trauma? Did you eat certain foods? Ask yourself the right questions. You have to create a situation where you can start with a clean slate. The process of asking why will help shock your subconscious and get you out of the same space where the problem arrived. This is where healing can begin.

3) Take Action

This is where the magic happens and we hear this time and time again. Take action! Project yourself where you want to be and ask yourself what you need to do right now to begin this transformation. Write down all the ways you can overcome your certain situation. Your brain is creative, expressive, and responsive just like any muscle you must use it to your advantage! Once you start asking yourself ways to overcome and heal a certain situation you will start finding those ways. It’s now up to you to take massive action on these steps and begin your transformation.

Congratulations, you are now on your way to creating massive transformation in your life! Use this method in all areas of your life in health, wealth, love, and relationships – you’ll be glad you did. If this worked for Pattee so she could lose over one hundred pounds, become an author, businesswoman, and coach it can and will surely work for you as well. You are a powerful individual who has a lot of control over their life. Now go out there and create massive transformation!

Angela’s Journey: From Banker To Healer

Angela’s Journey: From Banker To Healer

In a world saturated with poor diets, doctors overmedicating patients, and diseases forming in all ranges, it’s fair to say that we have some work to do here on earth. Angela Vlasak was just like you and me, except she may have actually had it worse. As the inflammation progressed in her body she was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, fibromyalgia, and chronic fatigue syndrome just to name a few. Most of these diseases are “incurable” to our modern medicine world. This leads her to a search of self-discovery and practices that would inevitably lead her to heal all her ailments. She ended her day job and decided that the world needed to hear her miracle. This is her story.

It Starts In The Gut

There’s no getting around it. Before juice cleanses, veganism, and 21 Day Fixes, Hippocrates had said, “all disease starts in the gut”. Thousands of years later, we’ve got scientific evidence to back this up. Angela discovered first hand that this was the case. Doctors would suggest foods and medications for her ulcerative colitis, ultimately exacerbating the problem. Angela had to find a ‘futuristic’ way to heal. Enter nutrigenomics-the study of how food in itself heals the body, the gut, and better yet, your genes. The truth is what Angela was eating, and not eating, was causing inflammation which was actually triggering her body’s response to one of illness. “Inflammation is the response of the immune system to foreign invaders, toxins and cell injury. Chronic inflammation, involving the entire body, is believed to drive many killer diseases. – https://www.healthline.com

Mind Over Matter

This was not an easy feat. She had to overcome mental strains, cravings, and the challenges of everyday life from her diseases, but she found solace in adding one simple addition to her morning routine. She would wake up, write down three things she was grateful for, and spend at least ten minutes appreciating everything she was going through. How can any sane person be thankful for living such a painful life? Well, she teaches that in order for the mind to overcome disease and heal, we need to create a loving and accepting mindset to soothe our nervous system. When we stay in a stress-induced mindset, we prohibit the nervous system from healing. You know that one-million-year-old instinct fight or flight? Unfortunately, we kept that way of thinking even if we are not dodging flying spears and running from wild animals.

Think of a time something scared, challenged, or stressed you. In times like these, your brain thinks it needs to defend itself from a threat – the nervous system tenses the muscles, stresses the cells, and if left alone too long, begins to damage the body. Do you see how this relates? Like every other human being, when Angela felt fearful she was preventing her body from naturally healing the root causes of her diseases. It might not have been her fault that the issues arose but how she dealt with them was her choice – free will.

“If it doesn’t challenge you, it won’t change you” – Angela Vlasek.

How can you apply Angela’s winning formula for success to your life for improved health and wellness?

Stress Conversion – To convert stress into joy, Angela practices a morning routine for just seven days.

  1. Wake up ten minutes earlier than normal.
  2. Write down the things you are grateful for.
  3. Appreciate your life – everyone and everything inside it.
  4. At the end of those seven days, write down what is different.  Use these questions to measure results.
    1. How does your mind process differently?
    2. How does your body feel?
    3. Are you more in tune with the world around you?
    4. See how seven days can make all the difference.

Design Your Life Wellness

Angela has an amazing methodology on a diet which she created with Design Your Life Wellness that reduces inflammation and reverses the effects of auto immunes disease for many people.

Go To Strategies For Overcoming Obstacles

By | articles, life lessons, my journey, personal development

my-go-to-strategies-for-overcoming-obstacles

I’ve been fortunate to have a great deal of success in my life, but there’s been a lot of adversity too. We all have times in our lives where we are blindsided by something being thrown at us we didn’t expect. There are some go-to strategies that I have to help me overcome obstacles that come my way that I wanted to share in hopes that they might help you too.

I’ve shared numerous stories where I’ve had to overcome obstacles throughout my life. One, for example, is when I was backpacking through Europe and I ended up sleeping on the floor of the Amsterdam train station. Back then, the train station was a little scary of an environment and I definitely stood out as someone who didn’t belong there amongst the others. I honesty didn’t know if I would make it through the night and had to make friends with people that I never thought I would make friends with to just get through the night as I was surrounded by people who were definitely up to no good. These people saw me as a target.

Another time was when I had a great 3 years traveling around from country to country on a shoe string budget with a backpack most of the time and finding whatever job I needed to get to help me get by. I had made some amazing relationships along the way and had a girlfriend at the time. However, when I was living in Sweden, we broke up and I was completely heartbroken, broke and had to come back to the United States and start from scratch. It was terrifying to do it, but I found my way.

There’s major adversity that we all face at one time or another. There are three things that I look at when I know that I’m facing adversity and they’re three things that I can do consistently to make sure that I am set up as best as possible for growth and have some kind of spring board.

Here are the 3 go to strategies:

  1. Make sure your mind is right. There’s so much information out there these days that actually can scare us and hold us back. What ends up happening is that we end up in a place where our mind is thinking about all the stuff going on around us in a negative way. Even when we watch TV, there’s so much stuff that we watch that’s really overdramatized and that can actually affect us. So the first thing I look at when things are going wrong, is what am I feeding my mind. Am I watching things that give me anxiety or scare me? Am I surrounding myself with people who say or do things that make me feel bad or any negative emotion like fear, anxiety or depression etc. Any information we take in can have an affect on us. If I am in a place where there’s going to be some craziness going on or big changes, the first thing I need to do is make sure that I’m feeding myself information that’s going to make me believe that this is for the best and will create change that will ultimately help me get through. For example, I might watch a video from an inspirational speaker or an uplifting movie, which can help to give me inspiration and hope. If we feed ourselves things that make us feel we can’t do something or maybe the world is against us, then we will end up feeling that way. Sometimes we are feeling this way and then have people around us feeling the same way and when we are trying to do something beyond where we are, those people are going to hold us back. Surround yourself with lots of possibilities so this way it comes into your mind that it is possible to move forward and make a better life for yourself and you can overcome any obstacles that might come your way.
  2. Feed your spirit. When you feed your spirit, that can be through prayer or meditation etc. You can ask for whatever you want. Don’t just wait until things go wrong, go ahead and ask. But, don’t just ask and move on. You have to listen as when you’re putting out those prayers, information is going to come back to you and tell you what your next step is. So make sure your prayer and what you’re asking for is very clear and specific in what you want. Don’t just say “I want money”, but say how much. Don’t say “I need help”, be specific with what you need help with. If you start doing that and ask for specific needs or questions, and then stop and listen (even had a notepad handy), you’ll start to receive answers. This takes some practice, but if you spend the time doing it, you’re actually going to feed your spirit because you’ll start to have understandings and revelations about yourself and even how the world works. You’ll understand that you’re not a victim, but really in control of anything that you want. Be prepared that life will throw curveballs your way but it’s often just to put you in another path better for you. Obstacles are a chance for us to grow and evolve. The more you practice this, the more you will get results.
  3. Take care of your body. For me, if I’m not healthy, my mind isn’t going to function as well as it should, I won’t have the energy to meditate, think clearly or take the actions I need to take. Make sure that you’re taking the best care of your body that you can. That doesn’t mean you can’t go out with friends or celebrate and indulge at times. You can do those things that are an exception, but it can’t be something you do regularly. You have to enjoy your life, of course. Look to eat things that are healthy, but it doesn’t have to be a drastic change. Your life depends on it. This goes for food, information, exercise etc. Think of everything that you take in as consumption and you’re going to get out what you put in. Keeping your body healthy will give you a lot more energy to do the things you need to do.

Those are three takeaways that I’ve learned. When I was in the train station in Amsterdam, I had to make sure I was resourceful. I sat there and thought about what was going through my mind and when I was in fear from all these strangers standing above me realizing things could get really bad, I stopped and thought about what I was feeling. I realized there was no reason for them to attack me and decided to think positive thoughts and then all of a sudden, one of them started talking to me and I ended up buddying up with him. Then others started to talk to us and it’s because I got my mind and my thoughts right and prayed and listened for what I needed to do next, even in that moment, which helped me get through it.

Make sure you’re constantly feeding yourself the right foods, information and feed your spirit and soul because you’ll get so much more out of life. I hope this helps you in your journey and please don’t hesitate to ask any questions you might have in the comment section below and I’ll do my best to answer and help.

Compassion & Forgiveness

By | articles, life lessons, personal development

compassion-and-forgiveness

Compassion and forgiveness work well together as when you have a sense of compassion, it’s much easier to forgive. There’s an old saying that when the student is ready, the teacher will appear. This is a personification of every single event that happens in our lives. The events around us are actually here to teach us what is going on with us to help us to learn and grow. This is the same thing with any circumstance or with any person that you meet. What we see in others, we must’ve seen before for us to understand it, so it must live somewhere inside of us. If we see someone that is angry, that’s what we recognize because we’ve been angry before. If we see someone that’s happy and we see all the positive things, it’s because we’ve been in that state before and if we’re in that state of positivity, we will see more positive things about other people. This is true for every emotion.

We’re going to experience ourselves by witnessing what other people do. As you practice this, you’ll start to see the connections. As you use this and realize that you’ve been in this state that the other person is in before, it’s going to get much easier to manage it. It’s not necessarily the same situation for you as is for them. Your reaction you have will either be to perpetuate a situation or to learn from it and move forward. It’s really important to learn the aspect of compassion because as you do, it’s going to make things significantly better for you.

An example: You’re driving and late for an appointment. You might feel stressed, anxious and needing to do whatever you can to save time. This might mean that you have to change lanes more often than you should, drive faster than you probably should and maybe even cut some people off here and there. Maybe your conscientious of it or maybe not and just in your own world. Other people might honk their horns at you or even yell at you and get upset with how you’re driving and that’s a reaction on their part. Now, if you flip this around and you were actually driving and had all the time in the world to get where you were going and someone else was running late, are you the person that lets that person get in your lane or do you get upset and yell and honk at them? Do you let their actions change what you’re doing? When someone cuts you off, it’s really up to you to decide how you’re going to react and respond to it. You can get really angry and let that take you over or you could be the person that actually lets the person in and then they can’t cut you off because you’re actually letting them go in front of you. When you reframe things like that, this is an act of compassion because you’ve been in a rush before and can empathize with them. You’re offering compassion by letting them get in front of you or choosing to get out of the fast lane because you see them quickly approaching going faster than you are so you get out of the way to let them pass.

This is true for life as well, if you act with compassion and remember a time when you were in a similar state to that other person. Before you ever react to someone, determine what state they’re in, because if you can do that, you can remember a time you were in that same one and show them some compassion. You can put yourself back into those shoes and think about what could’ve been done to help you when you were in that moment. Display that to the person in that similar state at that moment and you’ll find that their reaction to this will help take them out of that state and you’ll make the day significantly better for them, but also for yourself. When you start doing this, people’s reactions to you become so positive that you might even find yourself looking for situations where you can show someone that compassion they really need. You get to learn a lot about yourself in this process. It’s your responsibility to be the bigger, better person. The more you do this, the more great situations will arrive in your life. Things that were once challenging for you, become petty and as you practice this, it becomes easier and easier.

An action you can take to help raise your level of compassion is to take a deep breath and then evaluate how you’ve been in a similar situation before and what the similar emotion was that’s projecting. Then ask yourself how you can show compassion, empathy or sympathy to respond to and better the situation. Don’t get attached the outcome. People may or may not respond how you want them to as that’s up to them, not you. All that’s up to you is moving forward, seeing the opportunity in the situation and maintaining your state of being. All we can do is be our best selves.

When it comes to forgiveness, it works in a similar way as compassion does. At the end of the day, you’ve likely experience the emotion that the other person is experiencing. Try to put things into perspective. For instance, maybe someone has wronged you. Rather than figuring out a way to level the playing field, remember that forgiveness is all about the person doing the forgiving. It’s completely up to you to decide to forgive someone. Think of a time when someone might have wronged or hurt you and rather than looking at how they hurt you, look at how they were hurting. Ask yourself how they could do something like that. Maybe their state of mind was in a sense of pain. When you can actually find what that state was, what their pain was and remember a time where you were feeling that same way and you might’ve acted out, then you can start the process of forgiveness. This doesn’t mean that you let the person continue to do this to you over and over again, it’s simply about letting go of whatever it was that they did and whatever pain it might’ve caused so that you’re not hanging on to that energy. Ideally, you want to forget that they even did it.

I hope this helps you and that you share it with others you know that are suffering and maybe need to learn to be more in the moment and learn how to show compassion and also learn to forgive.

Turning Stress Into Play

By | articles, life lessons, personal development

turning-stress-into-play

We all have times in our life where things seem overwhelming with too many commitments or things going on. If you can find a way to make those times enjoyable and fun instead of stressful, they’ll be easier to get through.

As kids, we had scenarios all of the time that we actually create. Whether we were playing with action figures or dolls or playing video games, we were creating all kinds of fun scenarios. Back then we enjoyed the challenges that came along. Yet as adults, we have these challenges and situations that arise and we think that everything is at stake and we start to get stressed out by some of the most smallest, mundane things, rather than approaching it with this model of play and fun. It’s so much more exciting when you do that. Maybe you have work responsibilities and you try to think of every way you could get out of having to do the work and instead just take it easy because you’re not looking forward to all that comes with that job. Try to look for any aspects of your job that you enjoy and focus on those things. As you do this, you’ll likely find ways you can enjoy what you do and not dread going in each day. Try to keep a lightheartedness with stressful situations and opportunities will start to open up to you. As problems or issues arise and you get over them, it will be a whole new experience for you as things will start to get better.

The easy way out is to say you can’t do something or tell yourself something isn’t working. We all have those negative voices in our head, but remember that challenges can turn into fun if you keep the right mindset. If you approach your day with positive thoughts, regardless of what issues might come your way, you’ll make things easier on yourself. As soon as you start to feel that anxiety over something, ask yourself how you can make solving the problem at hand fun. At the end of the day, you want to enjoy your life, and how do you do that?? HAVE FUN!!

Know that getting to this place will take some practice. Don’t get discouraged as sooner or later, you’ll figure out a way to turn your stress into fun! The cool thing is that with every issue you come across, it will help you to step up your game and rise to the opportunities.

Making Drastic Change Is The Only Way To Get Drastic Results

By | articles, life lessons, personal development

making-drastic-change-is-the-only-way-to-get-drastic-results

If you want to get drastic results, you have to make drastic changes. Quantum physics plays a huge role in making these huge leaps and if it’s like this in physics, it actually applies to your life. To make a quantum leap is significantly different than this gradual process. Typically we think of time and space, for example, as a distance, a location and a clock setting. The reality is that we have to look forward beyond that and think to quantum physics. What happens with quantum physics is that things can change in an instant with out being a linear progression. Particles and waves can move from location to location with seamlessly no effort, energy being used or time being taken. They can actually show up in multiple places at once.

If we take that same idea that things can just happen overnight, and maybe if you think back to a time where things just clicked for you and all of a sudden it became easy, that’s a quantum leap. This happens all the time, so it’s highly likely you’ve already experienced this before in some aspect of your life. In order to do this, control it and make it actually happen for us, we have to follow a few key principles and think in a certain way so that we can make these quantum leaps and make drastic change to get the drastic results. It’s great to grow things 1% each day, 10% each week or whatever works for you and get a little bit better every day. It’s not as painful or as much risk involved, but at the end of the day, there’s also not as much reward when you do these things slowly and gradually.

We want to make better decisions and learn from our experiences, but a lot of time what happens is that we get to a point of diminishing returns where the only way we can get better, is to work harder. Even if you’ve done something several times and it’s worked well for you each time, at a certain point, what worked before doesn’t continue to work. You probably don’t want to have to work 100 times harder today than you did yesterday. You should be enjoying yourself and having a good time with it, but in order to get there, you have to let go of things that hold you back. That means you have to let go of beliefs and the way you’re doing things and the decisions you’re making on a daily basis. If you don’t, you’ll end up doing the same thing day in and day out and if you’re doing the same thing every day, you’re going to get the same results. I’m sure you’ve heard the saying that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again but expecting different results.

The first thing you should think about if you want to make quantum change is actually to quit trying harder. If you have goals that you’ve set for yourself, to get to them, yes you can work harder on them. But, that’s only going to serve to do one thing… make sure that you work harder! Quantum leaps actually come when you let go of the things that aren’t working for your and change your way of thinking to where you believe that anything is possible and that without a doubt, there’s a way to do it. That doesn’t necessarily require more work. You know that you’re going to come to a place where you might have a hurdle to overcome or a new path to take and sometimes going around it isn’t necessarily the path of most resistance, but the path of most allowance. If you start thinking that you’re going to take things in the path of most allowance, then things start to happen for you and get easier. So working harder ends of up not being the case at all and instead, you actually work with less energy need to accomplish the same amount. You’ll be able to accomplish so much more by actually changing the way you think about things and letting go of the belief that you have to work harder.

Quantum leaps come when you seek that elegant solution. Think about smart phones like the iPhone. That was a quantum leap in technology in thinking of what phones would be able to do. Many of us find ourselves using the phone for far more than just making calls, whether it be texting, taking pictures or using the many apps provided to us. It’s truly a super computer in your hand that can do so much. So, when you think about what the elegant solution is with things, you’re going to solve problems and find new opportunities by thinking what the easiest way to do things are by taking the least amount of steps in having the most impact. To do this, you’re going to have to ignore your conventional approaches because while you only know that you know, there’s so much more information that you don’t know.

When you start to take a look at things in a way that allows you to think bigger, about the challenges and the opportunities that lie in each one of those challenges, that’s an opportunity for you to make a change and pivot off what you’re doing. Look for the approach that is characterized by things that are simplistic, have precision, efficiencies, are repeatable and neat and they won’t be as complex and time consuming as the other steps you’re used to taking. Otherwise you’ll continue to follow the pattern of doing the same thing and having the same results. This might serve you for a period of time, but not in the long term, but more gradual growth.

To make quantum shifts, you really have to start focusing on the possibilities rather than your limits and obstacles. Move outside your current beliefs and boundaries and when you catch yourself complaining about how something is, try to change and reword it to a positive thought. As a result, you’ll start to get all kinds of intuitions on how to solve problems you may be experiencing and that will create huge opportunities for you, people around you and possibly even the world. So, taking that approach makes things so much more simplistic, a lot of fun and you multiply your performance potential in every aspect of your life.

If you’re going to doubt something, doubt your limits!

Rather than fighting against the current, going with the flow always brings great opportunities. When you see a problem, look at the solutions instead of the problem.. not just the solutions, but the opportunities created from that problem. What ends up happening if you focus on the problem, is that it just gets bigger. But if you put a positive spin to your thinking and focus on how you can go about making the result a better one and figuring out the path to get there, you’ll start to get those intuitions and have huge breakthroughs.

Momentum

By | articles, life lessons, personal development

momentum

I’ve had many people come to me and talk about their goals. They’re often so excited about it but after a few days or weeks, they have a lot of trouble sticking to some of them. No matter what they try, they don’t feel like they can’t get over the hump.

Here are some tips and strategies that work for me to reach and achieve my goals. You can implement them all or specific ones that work for you.

  1. You have to have goals to establish some kind of momentum. If you don’t know where you’re going, it’s impossible to take the first step towards it. You have an infinite number of things you can do in a day and you have to take a step in the direction you want to go.
  2. Break your goals down into micro-goals. This will help to keep you motivated. These are very small goals that you know are easily accomplished and you can really see them coming to fruition in the future. You can break these down from several years to even monthly and daily goals. If you can get to where you have daily goals, you’ll feel more accomplished and will accomplish more than you can imagine.
  3. Partner with someone. Don’t partner with your friends or your significant other as you might just end up making excuses for each other and not accomplishing anything. Find an expert who will push you. Make sure you get out of bed. If you want to lose weight, get a trainer to help you. Do some research and find the best one for you that can help you achieve your weight and health goals. If you want to learn a new skill, go find the best person who has experience and is successful in what you want to learn. Whatever it is, find a partner, expert or mentor to help you get there. This is what all of the top successful people do. There’s no reason to have to do it the hard way if you just take the time to find people to be there to encourage you and keep you on track. Woodrow Wilson said it best… “I not only use the brains that I have, but all I can borrow.”

How Little Wins Can Slow Us Down

By | articles, life lessons, manifestation, personal development

Success can actually hurt us at times and slow us down. It can cause us to limit ourselves if we’re so used to winning and getting what we want that we end up not taking the bigger risks because we don’t want to know the consequences should we fail. When we have a problem, we aren’t going to end up knowing how to overcome it. We get stuck in this comfort zone. It happens to everyone from the greatest of great to those who might just be struggling to get through their day.

It’s important that when you’re on a winning streak, that you don’t forget to keep pushing yourself in making those goals bigger. Failure should be perceived as something that’s going to happen every once in a while. It should be something that puts you in a new direction in your life and causes growth for you. If you keep winning, sure, it’s great for your ego, in getting what you want and helping you to feel good, but you’re not necessarily growing. It’s important in your life to continue to learn and grow. You want to be more tomorrow than you were today. That doesn’t mean that you keep doing the same things. It means that you make some adjustments and take some leaps and risks. Don’t get stuck in the rut of just hanging on to things you know how to do well and being scared to try new things. It’s perfectly okay if you try something but have no idea what you’re doing. Put yourself out there and experience all that life has to offer.

I hope this helps you to think about the goals that you have and see how you can make them a little bit larger, or maybe twice or ten times as large. It doesn’t mean you have to actively do something right now, but at least take a look at your goals and think about what steps it will take to reach them. Don’t cut yourself short. This is your life to live and your ability to express everything that you are. Every day offers you new opportunities, so seize them. Don’t let all the little things you’re good at prevent you from doing bigger things that call for you and that really you want to do. Make sure the little things are stepping stones and not roadblocks that prevent you from going after the larger picture because you are enough, you are capable and you can have everything you want out of life. You’re worth it!

Turning Busyness Into Blissfulness

Do you ever find yourself thinking you’re too busy to do this or that? Serenity is important! You’ve probably all had at least one time in your life where you felt like you should be farther along with something than you were at that time and it felt dissatisfying. Or maybe chaos ensued and it caused you to stress out about it. Sometimes when these things are happening, we forgot to focus on the good things that are happening in our lives. If we are able to remember the positive elements within our lives, it helps us not get so attached to that chaos or disappointment about things that might not be going our way. If we can instead find some peacefulness and realize that the space in between when we are producing, that’s when we are appreciating. When we have that serenity inside of us, that’s when we can become truly grateful, appreciative and being in the moment.

Sometimes we are just too busy to do some of the things we should be doing and more importantly, the things we WANT to be doing, which is truly what we should be focused and spending our time on. This doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t take care of our responsibilities, but ultimately, our responsibilities should be tied to something we want. It’s about finding the right balance.

Calmness is a result of practice. When you are in that space, that’s when you’re going to be making the best decisions. All of the little things in life that are so important for you to enjoy every day will start to come more into focus for you. When you find that calm and peacefulness, you become completely present. But, if you’re constantly busy all of the time, you won’t be able to make space to really feel good. There’s so much to do that at the end of the day maybe you feel good for that one moment when you realize you’ve crossed everything off of your to-do list. You were able to appreciate all that you did in that day because you created space for it. Make space for this throughout the day with each moment, and take the time to find a little calmness in between because it’s so important. It’s in those moments of appreciation where that lightbulb goes off with a great idea and that intuition comes. Exercise that self control when your mind starts racing and try to focus on that one thing that matters most in that moment or feels good to you to help calm your mind and it will help change your experience throughout the day.
