Stop making things complicated and just live your life.

weatherMood

.

Everyone has one common goal in life: to achieve true happiness. The biggest factor holding us back from achieving our dreams is, simply and sadly, our own selves. We put limitations on ourselves everyday, whether intentionally or unintentionally. There are so many ways we can alleviate these restraints.

Remember, life can either be something you embrace or something you hide from. Stop making things complicated and just live your life. It would be so much simpler and more enjoyable if we learned to just release certain limitations.

Let’s take a look at the things you need to let go of in order to become a happier person.

Let Go Let God1. The Approval Of Others

Who gives a sh*t what other people think? If you are happy with the decisions you have made, then whose business is that but your own? Think of how much you could achieve if you stopped letting other people’s opinions dictate the way you live your life. Do you, and engage in whatever actions you think might better your life.

2. Anger/Resentment

Anger will eat at you from the inside. Learn how to make peace with those who have wronged you. This isn’t about letting the other person off the hook; it’s about alleviating the pain that resonates within you. Keep in mind that he who angers you, controls you.

3. Negative Body Image

There is only one person’s opinion you should be concerned with when it comes to your body and that is you. No one person determines what the “correct” body type is. If you are comfortable in your own skin, and you are healthy, then that should be the only thing that matters. Do not let others tell you that you’re not beautiful because if you believe you are, then you are.

4. Idea Of A Perfect Partner

There is no such thing as a perfect partner, so throw your checklist out the window. In life, what prevents us from moving forward is looking at the perfect image of a partner we concoct in our minds. Find the right person for you: one that you can love with all your heart, one you feel comfortable with and one that accepts you for the person you are. The sooner you realize there isn’t one perfect person out there for you, the better off you will be.

“He’s not perfect. You aren’t either, and the two of you will never be perfect. But if he can make you laugh at least once, causes you to think twice, and if he admits to being human and making mistakes, hold onto him and give him the most you can. He isn’t going to quote poetry, he’s not thinking about you every moment, but he will give you a part of him that he knows you could break. Don’t hurt him, don’t change him, and don’t expect for more than he can give. Don’t analyze. Smile when he makes you happy, yell when he makes you mad, and miss him when he’s not there. Love hard when there is love to be had. Because perfect guys don’t exist, but there’s always one guy that is perfect for you.” – Bob Marley

5. Perfect Life

Just like there is no perfect partner, there is also not a perfect life. Life is what you put into it, so if you are not willing to work hard and put forth effort, you will most likely end up miserable. The choices you make will directly reflect the life you lead. It is up to you to create the best possible world for yourself.

6. You’re Going To Be Rich

Too many people live their lives with the thought that they will be millionaires. While this can be a realistic goal for some, it is not something that can be achieved without hard work and dedication. Stop letting money be your sole motivator; find a career you are passionate about and immerse yourself in it completely.

7. The Idea That Good Fortune Will Arrive At Your Doorstep

You need to go out into the world and actively look for fulfillment. You cannot take a backseat in life and expect things to happen for you. Appreciate the life you live, and be grateful for what you have. Value each minute of every day. Live like there’s no tomorrow, and make the most out of any situation.

8. Excuses

Make no time for excuses. You want to work out, but you don’t have the time? Wake up early and get your gym on. Excuses are only rationalizations that make you feel better about yourself for not doing something you want/need to be doing. You desire results? Stop bitching, and start doing.

9. Thoughts Of Your Ex

This person is your ex for a reason. If you are going to think of him or her at all, try and think only about the lessons the experience taught you. Do not linger on any old feelings, as this will only prevent you from being happy with someone else in the future.

10. Stubbornness

I know it’s hard to admit, but sometimes you are just wrong. Other people have just as much capability as you do in providing the correct answer, so stop being stubborn and just embrace it. The less stubborn you act, the more open you are to learning new things. Think of all you could be exposed to if you stopped believing in opinions other than your own.

11. Procrastination

Stop thinking you will finally get to whatever task is at hand tomorrow. Live in the present, and get your sh*t done when it needs to be done. Maximize your time to the best of your ability. Complete each task you need to as soon as you can. This allows you to feel free from worry and stress by getting things out of the way as soon as possible. You also allow yourself more free time to enjoy the things you love.

12. Your Baggage

We have all been hurt one time or another by someone we loved, or we thought we loved. Carrying negative feelings into future relationships will only prove to be disastrous. No two people are the same, so it’s unfair to hold a future partner to a standard set by an ex. Try to begin each new relationship with a clean slate.

13. Negativity

What you put out into the universe will come back to you, so change the way you think, immediately. Stop thinking of life as a glass half empty, but rather, half full. You have so much to be grateful for, if only you took a moment to appreciate it. Anything is possible in the mind of a positive thinker.

14. Judgmental Thoughts

Why do people feel the need to constantly worry about what is going on in other people’s lives? If we spent as much time worrying about our own behaviors as we do worrying about those of others, our lives would be a whole lot more meaningful. You have no idea what is going on in another person’s life, so who are you to pass judgment on the way they act?

15. Jealousy

Happiness is not having what you want; it’s wanting what you have. Stop envying others and learn to appreciate what you have. Everyone’s life is unique; you have certain things to offer that others cannot. When we act in a jealous manner, all we do is bring negative feelings into our lives. There is absolutely nothing to gain from behaving this way.

16. Insecurity

Happy people tend to have extremely high levels of self-esteem. They accept who they are and work it everyday of their lives. They radiate confidence, flaunt their pride and give off positive vibes. There is no reason to be insecure in life. If there are things you are self-conscious about, go out into the world and seek to change them. Only you have the ability to create the best version of yourself.

17. Depending On Others For Happiness

At the end of the day, the only person you can count on 100 percent of the time is yourself. Do not make the unfortunate mistake many people do and put your happiness in the hands of others. A relationship is not going to fulfill the void if you can’t even make yourself happy. You need to achieve happiness on your own before you can find someone else to share it with. This creates a detrimental dependency that will prevent you from becoming self-sufficient.

18. The Past

Stop living in the past! There is virtually nothing you can gain if you wallow in mistakes you have previously made. Take past mistakes as lessons learned, and move forward. You cannot wholeheartedly move on to a better future if you are constantly looking behind you. Things happened, and that’s that. Take them with a grain of salt and move on.

19. The Need For Control

Sometimes you just need to let life happen the way it is meant to. You cannot spend your life stressing about things that are outside of your control. Try to relax, and let things play out naturally. Embrace the unknown, as this is where you will be surprised the most. Let yourself be whisked into unforeseen endeavors, and relish in the excitement they bring.

20. Expectations

Managing your expectations is the key to happiness. If you let go of expectations, you will never be disappointed. Often, we tend to believe that the way we treat others will be the way we are treated in return. Unfortunately, this does not always happen. Do not expect a certain result from any given situations. Go into an experience with an open mind. This will allow you to fully immerse yourself, without the pressure of living up to preconceived notions.

IS THIS A NEW DAY OR IS IT A REPLAY OF YESTERDAY?

.

IS THIS A NEW DAY OR IS IT A REPLAY OF YESTERDAY?

 

DO YOU OFTEN FEEL THAT YOU WANT TO SHOUT OUT, “SAME DAY, SAME OLD STUFF”? WE ARE THE CREATORS OF OUR OWN WORLD AND DO ACTUALLY HAVE CONTROL OF MOST OF THE THINGS THAT HAPPEN IN IT.

.

ARE YOU SICK OF THE SAME OLD STUFF? Most people live as if there is some kind of invisible force that captured their will and ability to remain active and productive. They act as if they are helpless victims of life and circumstances. Just look around you and see if you can detect one single person that made a really dramatic and sustained modification (turnaround) to his or her unsatisfactory lifestyle.

People often bitch and moan about their work, relationships, spouses and unruly children and act as if they are the victims of some sinister plot. When you go to social occasions you often discover that most people spend hours trying to top each other’s “victim” stories while they stare at each other through the bottoms of their cocktail glasses. When you finally drive home after these “socials” you often feel drained and incomplete.

Your “social” with your friends might have made you feel slightly better initially because you received confirmation that you are not the only one that are a victim in this cesspool called life. You are exposed to “bad news” messages wherever you go. Whenever you feel enthusiastic and upbeat, buy a newspaper. Before you read two pages you will be back to your normal subdued self.

We might feel that we are living under very testing conditions today and that our situation is unique, but when you investigate the “victim” phenomena worldwide you will find that most people suffer with this form of mental bondage.

We use crime and instability as our crutch to justify our victim behavior. You will discover that an endless range of excuses are used to justify “victim” behavior globally. The bottom line is that “victim” behavior is something that comes from the inside, from your own mind.

We tend to “think” ourselves to a standstill and into an early grave. The “look at me, I am a victim” turmoil in the world has reached pandemic proportions. The collective negative mood on planet earth is negative and very destructive. The main reason why people experience these very immobilizing emotions is because of the overall habit of living in the PAST or the FUTURE. We can think up the most amazing disasters in the theater of our minds. We can die a thousand deaths in our mind with our habit of projecting ourselves into imagined future disasters.

WHEN YOU LIVE IN THE FUTURE YOU GIVE UP YOUR RIGHT TO ACT IN THE NOW!

We form opinions at a very young age about most things in life. We have “feelings” about almost anything that we can ever be faced with. Any conclusion that we came to during our lifetime will usually remain part of our coping style until the day we die.

Most people fail to understand that “everything will remain the same until a change is made”. If you are allowing fear of something that might never happen to control your thinking you are disqualifying yourself from the reality of the now.

Just think of the key areas in your life such as your work, relationships and general lifestyle and take stock of your “general” behaviour in these areas. You need to study your habitual reaction pattern in any area if it is not working as you hoped it would. Stop waiting for others to modify their behavior, beg you for forgiveness or that the problem will go away.

Become bold and active and start doing something about whatever you feel is bothering you. Nothing will change until you activate such change. Remember if you are in waiting mode and your dispute is with someone else you are handing control to this person. When you live in the NOW and you act in the present tense you make your life predictable and much more stress free. When you live in the FUTURE and fail to take action in the NOW you are “manufacturing” your own house of pain.

 

The only way that you can escape this stuck in the future or past zone is to begin to live in the NOW. Give yourself a fair chance to make a success of any given day. You can do this by talking to yourself.

Tell yourself that you are not interested in things that might never happen or that happened in the past. You are talking to yourself all day long, make these “chats” constructive and motivational. Give yourself a break and stop running yourself down. When you find your mind drifting into the “horror” mode tell yourself that you are not going to waste energy on events that may never happen. If you mind drifts into the “feel sorry for me mode”, take control and say, “I create my own circumstances and will not create a torture chamber for myself today.” Wipe the slate clean every morning and attack each day with enthusiasm and commitment. Live for the moment my friend. Today and each and every day is indeed a new day with wonderful opportunities if you are focused on the now.

Choose what you want, need, or desire to do, and do it.

.

Here it is, the cold hard truth….

There is no secret to motivation.

Motivation is defined as a general desire or willingness of someone to do something. Motivation is the reason or reasons one has for acting or behaving in a particular way.

Motivation is a real psychological state of being and definitely can influence our results in life, but only if we allow them to. Too often times we use motivation, or really lack thereof, as an excuse as to why we are not doing or accomplishing what we desire, or honoring our responsibilities at work or home.

How many times have you thought or said, “I should have (insert anything here), but I wasn’t motivated.” Or, “I started (X), but I lost motivation to follow through.” Or, “I have no motivation for (X).”

We all have. You are not alone.

For me, motivation is an afterthought in many instances, and at times, a bonus in my day. Personally, if I was to wait until I was motivated, hardly anything in my life would get accomplished. I do not possess a desire to do many things that still need to get done. I am sure you can relate to that, but do you still do them anyways? I do, and it’s because of one thing…

Choice, and everyone has the power of choice.

We make choices, practically every second of the day. It is our choices, not our level of motivation that propels us forward to what we desire. Now, I can’t lie, when I want to do something it’s a lot easier to get it done, but I accomplish just as much that I do not desire to do, and that is because I choose to. I want this for you.

You always have a choice to take action.

You always have a choice to do something or not do something. You always have a choice about how you think, feel, and behave in any moment. Choose to get things done. Choose to accomplish something on your task list. Choose to take action towards your goals every day.

MindTrip MagazineYou don’t need to be motivated to physically do it.

What’s the difference between you and that other person? The one you who gets it all done, the one who gets a promotion, the one whose ideas are heard at the office, the one who spent the weekend on a get-away, the one who works and attends every single school function for their child(ren)…

The choices they make. That is the only difference. They are not more motivated than you. They are not better than you. They are just like you… except they choose to not allow motivation to dictate their lives.

Do you want to get a promotion? Choose to think, feel, and behave like someone who is going to get a promotion. Speak up in meetings. Put together a presentation that has the “wow” factor. Build connections. Just take action regardless of how “motivated” you are. That is the power of choice.

Do you want to be a more effective leader? Choose to learn how to be, and implement what you learn. Choose to give and receive feedback. Choose to learn and grow every day. That is the power of choice.

Do you want to have better relationships? Choose to take action and make it happen. Join a club or an organization. Spend time and nurture the relationships that have meaning to you. Ignore the “I’m too tired to be motivated to meet up with people once a week,” and just do it. That is the power of choice.

Do you want to stop feeling rushed in the morning? Choose to set your alarm a half an hour earlier, and when your alarm goes off, choose to get up and not press snooze. You just created another 30 minutes in your morning, and decreased the rushing. That is the power of choice.

Do you want to be present at the office at home? Do you feel like you lack the motivation to be your best with both? Feeling too tired to walk into that first meeting on your game? Feeling too distracted with work to show up fully present for your kid(s)? Choose to be present in the moment you are in. Choose to be the best boss or employee while you are at work, and then choose to be the best Mom/Dad when you get home. That is the power of choice.

Do you see how there is no secret to motivation?

Motivation is a great task enhancer and it does make things easier, but it’s not necessary to get anything done. Choose what you want, need, or desire to do, and do it.

Choice is the only motivation you need.

When you make choices on a daily basis that are aligned with what you want to get done, need to get done, and desire to get done, motivation is an afterthought. Motivation becomes your success, your accomplishments, your pride, your confidence, and your highest potential.

The secret to motivation? There is no secret.

Choose to be a doer; use motivation as a bonus.

The Greatest SECRET That Will Change Your Life.

In life the weak always become the victim of the strong.

Let us stop searching for answers and implement a few of the principles we already understand and know. Let us stop looking for new rules, laws and words of wisdom and start using the ones we already know, but never apply!

.

If you show any sign of weakness or vulnerability, the vultures and scavengers of life will appear like magic. In life the weak always become the victim of the strong. When a kudu feel ill or appear injured, the scavengers will target and devour him. When your head and shoulders go down you lose your zest for life. Your tone of voice drops to a whisper or whine and your feel drained and tired. Remember the trigger to get you out of this frame of mind is to reverse the process. Lift your head and shoulders. Take a few deep breaths and walk like a man with a mission.

15 Powers You Can Easily Develop.

mind

.

When one thinks of Chi Power Training or Qigong, the concept of developing Extra Sensory Perception or ESP becomes a very real possibility. How does a physical exercise like Chi Power Training or Qigong relate to the development of Psychic abilities or ESP?

The one key factor that one must realize is that physical “Internal” training can have a direct result on mental capabilities as it relates to ESP.

The reason is that when you combine certain physical exercises with mental exercises, you create a way to tap into the inner resources of the Mind, Body connection.

Many have searched far and wide to learn these supposed secret abilities. These “secrets” are really returning the body back to the way it was when we were younger and had perception. As we get older, we come to dismiss the abilities we had as children.

The key to doing this is learning how to sensitize the body after it has been desensitized after all the years of growing older and allowing your mind and body to conform to what is “normal” and or “abnormal”.

The only “normal” you have is whatever your concept of normal is. It may take a while for you to begin to realize and understand the true capabilities that you truly have and how you can use them, but that doesn’t change the fact that it is what it is.

The simple way to get this to work is to allow yourself to get into a meditative state and get your body to relax, while you instruct the mind and condition the body to “re-sensitize” itself to all available stimuli available. Sounds easy and simple, but is it really?

Well, it is if you know how to do it. When you have a blueprint that enables you to guide yourself step by step into a new reality, it gives you a power to become more than you could ever have imagined.

The nice thing about this training is that you can go at any pace you want to. Some train hours every day, while others have a less aggressive routine, one that will assist them to get the results they want in the time frame they want, need and desire.

The question is, will you take the next step to allow yourself the chance to get the most out of your mind, body & spirit, and the full potential that is inside of you?

15 Powers You Can Easily Develop

Here is a short list of some of the abilities you can experience:

  • Crossing of the senses (“seeing” sounds), in which a numinous beauty is revealed or an extrasensory perception is dramatized.

  • Feeling” people in a house though you cannot see or hear them.

  • Feeling that someone is watching you, after which you turn to meet his or her gaze.

  • Feeling a basic compatibility (or incompatibility) with people before you meet them.

  • Correctly guessing the location of water or other materials by extrasensory processes.

  • Spontaneous, unexpected perceptions of distant events.

  • Hearing music or other sounds, for which there is no discoverable physical source, which enlivens particular thoughts or emotions.

  • Correctly sensing the location of lost objects without the help of sensory cues.

  • Opening books to the exact passage you are searching for.

  • Watching someone’s face reveal-as if in slow motion-unsuspected feeling, traits, or possibilities for development.

  • Sensing a numinous presence during meditation, intimate conversation, or other circumstances.

  • Seeing lights around people or inanimate objects for which there are no apparent sources.

  • Looking at something familiar and seeing it as if for the first time.

  • Spontaneously apprehending the presence of someone physically distant or dead, by direct and vivid contact.

These are skills or abilities one can achieve through the right discipline of meditation and advanced chi training (building up the nerve fibers).

The question is not whether you can achieve these results, but rather, do you have the courage and instinct to continue expanding your mind and body?
