10 Important Life Lessons

1. Don’t take yourself too seriously. Learn to laugh at your mistakes.

2. Life is too short it to waste it on resentments, bitterness or grudges you’re holding against others.

3. You don’t have to win every argument and fight. Sometimes it’s OK to just agree to disagree.

4. Make peace with your past - then let it go, and move on.

5. Choose to go after what brings you happiness.

6. Don’t compare yourself to others.

7. It doesn’t really matter what others think about you – just live your own life and be true to who you are.

8. Don’t suffer in silence – reach out for support.

9. The most important thing is to love and be loved.

10. Believe that the best is yet to come.

When the sky is not clear and the air is not warm it is easy to think that nothing is going well. The sun needs a break too, sometimes. A star is still a star whether you can see it or not, apply this logic to yourself. People do not need to see you work hard to know that you are doing it, you are strong enough on your own. Believe in everything in yourself and see where it takes you.

The funny thing is, just because a flower grows faster than the others doesn’t mean that it will be the biggest in the end. It might look like it’s going to be the best flower because it’s blossoming and so tall compared to the others around it. But that doesn’t mean that one of the other flowers won’t grow taller and blossom. Basically is what I’m trying to say is that just because you got a late start or you seem to be behind everyone else, doesn’t mean you don’t stand a chance against them.

The Secret Formula For Success

There’s something you’re trying to achieve, but why is it important that you achieve this goal? Why do you dream about it? Why would your life feel empty without it? Because this is your purpose and if you can’t stop thinking about it - don’t stop working for it.

Your resolve, determination and drive will be tested along the road - you only have 1 decision to make: do you believe in yourself enough to keep going? This is where having a strong why behind your mission comes in - if your why is strong enough you will find a way to make it work.

Whether you’re trying to be the best in your sport, make more money or attract a loving relationship - belief that it is possible is how the process of manifesting the result begins. If you are prepared to dedicate your life to achieving something - it WILL manifest.

Indeed, belief is only one part of the equation - but the formula for success won’t work without it. Hard work + patience + self-belief = success. Belief in yourself does not come from anything external - you cannot rely on anyone else to push you along this journey, your drive has to come from you.

Understand that you are capable of whatever you believe you are capable of. If your mind can conceive it - you can achieve it. Whether you think you can or you can’t - you are right. The power to create your reality lies in your mind - align your beliefs with your goals and you will achieve them.

It doesn’t matter what anyone says or thinks about what you’re trying to achieve because it is not their goal. They do not need to understand or support you - if you believe it is possible then the dream will become reality. 

Never stop working on your dreams & in time they will manifest.

Peace & positive vibes.

The 3 P’s of Motivation

1. Perspective - You may see small progress over time and - depending on your perspective - you will either be encouraged or discouraged to continue. Your ability to stay motivated depends on the way you see the world.

You may encounter challenges along the road and get demotivated because your perspective is limited to what you are experiencing. When we alter our perspective we see that these challenges or setbacks are minor in comparison to what the worst case scenario could be.

2. Positive self-talk - reinforcing positive affirmations such as “I’m heading in the right direction” along the journey will help you to stay focused on the task at hand instead of getting caught up in how much further you’ve got to go or whatever else is taking your attention away from the journey.

Your motivation will dwindle if you’re constantly being harsh on yourself for not having achieved your goals. Celebrate the small wins along the road, positive self-talk encourages more action - actions lead to progress, progress is the greatest motivator.

3. Perseverance - remind yourself that you are running a marathon, not a sprint. The key to completing your marathon is to keep in mind that the only way you can fail is if you give up. Although sometimes it can appear as though you’ve failed, there is no such thing as failure because you either win or you learn.

Rome was not built in a day - all great things take time. The only way to build your Rome is brick by brick, there are no shortcuts. Love the journey, embrace the process and in time you will succeed.

Perspective, positivity & perseverance will keep you motivated.

Peace & positive vibes.

Why You Need To Be Self-Conscious

Being self-conscious is both a good and bad thing - we must be aware of our physical form because we need to keep it healthy and able so that we can experience the full range of what this existence has to offer. However we cannot take the physical body’s appearance too seriously because we are not our bodies.

We are the consciousness that inhabits the flesh - therefore we cannot be fat and we cannot be ugly because these are terms associated with the flesh. Your actions determine how beautiful or ugly you are and your ability to experience life determines how healthy or unhealthy you are.

If you want to lose weight - do it for yourself and not so that you can be compared with photoshopped images. Do it so that you can have a healthier body that can give you the most out of this human experience. If you’re trying to gain the affection of someone else, first ask yourself - would you date you?

Indeed, you could buy the cosmetic products, the surgeries and the validation that comes with that - but it will never fulfil you from the inside. True confidence comes from the ability to be happy with who you are - working on the relationship you have with yourself is a great way to achieve this.

Spend time with yourself doing things that make you happy and gain an understanding of what you want from the time you have left on the planet. When you understand that life is too short to waste time on trying to be like everyone else - you will gain perspective of what is truly important to you.

If you are feeling self-conscious about the way you look understand that this is because you are comparing yourself to others and/or do not love yourself 100%. With this in mind it’s time to start showing yourself some love and embrace the way you are instead of trying to be something you’re not.

Be conscious of how you act rather than how you look.

Peace & positive vibes

Don’t ever let failure dull your spirit.  And don’t listen to any advice from others that tells you to give up, try something that’s less risky, or stick more to the norm if it’s something that you’re passionate about and have a mind/ body/ spirit connection with.

Keep yourself surrounded with people and ideas that are above your level and keep your mind thinking about how you can always keep moving forward (the ONLY direction)!  Continual growth towards your best version of yourself, over a long period of time is the ultimate win.
