We are always in a rush, rushing to do what is next and never truly appreciating the moment NOW. Every breathe we take is a blessing and appreciating this moment is important. Life is full of wonder and awe and when we really stop multitasking and take in each moment we would realize time is endless.
I recently began practicing slowing down and listening. Listening within and around. I have began less multitasking and being mindful of what I am doing in the present moment and I see a huge difference in my life when I decide to slow down.
Do you know what I have found when I have separated myself from doing too many things at the same time and being present in the moment. I realize time is slowing down. Just today I realize this, not only when I stop and pause. When I found myself in the present moment focused, observing my sorroundings and listening to the sound of my OWN voice and breathe time slows down. It is like magic is all around me. I do not experience this all the time but there are moments I really stop and appreciate what is in front of me. It may not be all glitter and glam but just the thought of being present, alive, having a mindful moment is one of kind.
I am not sure if you will understand the real beauty of this magical moment but when you practice mindfulness and appreciating each moment of your life. You will understand how blessed your life really is at the time.
We are always rushing watching the time and telling ourselves we have so little time left. But do we really know if we have little time left, because we are not God. So, when we really think of life this way we will breathe in each breath with love and really appreciate the NOW because that is all we are certain of today.
Have you every thought about doing something bold that may come across as ” not you”.
Well let me tell you something when you start doing things without worrying about the opions of others this can be your most liberating experience ever.
I recently learned a new quote ” I am completely independent of the good or bad opinions of others. ” Let me tell you this quote is probably the ticket to living your most authentic life.
When I thought of this, a person who has this grilled in their system is what some would say thick skin, bold, brave and even adventurous. Some would say bad ass, ass hole or not right. But, the funny part is they do not care. That is mental freedom in one way or another.
So, why cant we be this way sometimes, we should not care for opinions of others. Some of us have this grilled so deep within changing this will be so difficult but we have to make the switch.
Imagine walking down the road and wondering what a random stranger thinks of you who you will probably not see again. Or you are in the mall and you accidentally trip and you turn around to see who saw you… WHY CARE. At least you did not break a leg and most times people did not see a thing.
I have seen people trip and they look around them before they stop to make sure they are ok. I am guilty of this as well lol but now I have to wonder why am I even doing this?
We are so trapped in our mind of having some kind of control of what others think of us. We never realize we are trapped within a cage and we are ready to fly.
Do you know we are so busy wondering what other people think we lose track of what we are really doing? Have you ever notice this with yourself. We tend to get caught up in the main goal in the first place.
Some of us we only know to be a people pleaser. For some reason or the other we do not know anything else to our life. We are only concerned in making others happy and forgetting our own lives.
This becomes exhausting and too much to bear as we are in a lose situation. We cannot win this game because we cannot please every one. That is why growing thick skin is awesome and liberating.
When you find this freedom within you will begin to live.
I recently saw a post on intstagram that had me a little held back.
The part that caught me was the feedback. People agreed and made me realize and think to myself, wow. I am not alone in this one.
I crave a life of simplicity but our society has us really caught up in what it portrays it to be. And, it makes me wonder for our future generation but when I see posts like these I find hope.
So, many want change and many are putting things into place to align their lives towards this way of living.
Modern society has really brain washed us. The Kardastrians and other reality TV shows has us fooled and many do not realize they themselves probably want a simplier life themselves.
The culture of the rat race that so many get themselves in when they finish College and Highschool is the cause for all our world problems.
Honestly how many cars do people need in a household. Where I live I only have a vehicle because I do not want to travel, due to safety. Which is sad , but I cannot travel after or walk anywhere after 10PM or 8PM. Now tell me this is not right. I know many others have this same problem.
Growing our own food, eating healthier and exercising is becoming a part of our society. Things that was looked at as harmful is now being practiced by many. Meditation is now being practiced by Christians within their prayers.
Yoga Practice is a norm and everyone wants to go green. This is beautiful and our Planet is evolving with many are being open minded.
We have now seen the benefits of being with nature. We are getting back slowly to simplicity by recognizing we have a need and want for this in our life.
I have seen miraculous changes in my own life when I make a conscious decision to bring change in my life. Practicing the pause, meditation, slowing down and taking my time has helped me align things better and clearer.
I feel a sense of peace when I admire nature and be in nature. We are not designed to be in a cubicle box, office, whole day freezing in air condition.
We are meant to learn, grow, develope, follow the teachings of God/ Universe/ ancent prophets. Whatever you align towards, we are here to follow in line with your life.
Every day is a blessing and Nature is creating we have to appreciate in our life. Being stuck in traffic to get to a job that does not even align with your passion, goals, dreams or eduation for some. Is just devestation for many in our society. To a point that many want to leave all of this behind because they do not see the reason for any of it anymore.
Our world is changing and we as humans are evolving every day for the better. It is a blessing to be alive in our times where we live in a society of technology and creating change in a vast way.
I really believe in a few years a lot of people are going to leave there day to day lifestyles behind. Because, doors will be opening to another way of living.
Many would realize they can live and really live and enjoy life. Many would open their eyes to a whole new world and many others would follow.
It may seem a little far fetch but when you look at you tube, instagram, and other platform you would realize. Mindfulness is a big aspect now and people are realizing the difference between mindfulness and mind ful. It is a big difference in our society and a lot of people would choose being mindful instead of mind full.
This would lead them to change things up in their life and switch things up a bit. In the work force Human Resource personnel are encouring mindfulness in the work place and having team building exercises around this as well.
All of this is fasinating stuff to me. We are onto something here in our planet and maybe in the next 5 to 10 years or even less. There would be less air pollution because of less vehicles being used. More farms being created because everyone wants natural foods. Less deaths because of a healthier, happier workforce and school systems. More peace in all nations because of unity among all.
This cannot happen overnight and one politician or party or religious body can create this for us. We have to take the small necessary steps to make this change. I am seeing this happening in big ways and there is hope for us all. I know with time we as a human race will create miraculous change among us.
As for now. It is one step at a time to positive changes.
Have you ever looked back at your life and said I had the whole thing wrong this whole time?
Well we live in a very different generation line where many are making our older generation look like they had it wrong all the time. Some may even say this generation have it all wrong.
Either way someone has it …. wrong.
But, it may not be completly wrong. As many millemiums have shown that tradition, rules, routine and everything else of the past 10 to 20 years is no longer a part of life. Many would say this is the reason we are in a messed up planet, I will say it is the reason we are making progress and fixing some of the errors.
To be honest, humanity kinda took many things too far or too literal. We are now facing a lot of new problems that need a new mindset. Fortunately, our current generation is seeing the problems and willing to address the issues. We are really standing up for ourselves, and letting the world know. Hey, this is not right.
A lot has changed drastically in the last 10 years and it is because nothing can ever stay the same . I am hoping we are not addressing climate change situation and a lot of other issues too late.
But, there is a God and he knows our heart. So, I trust everything will fall right into place. As I am getting kinda spiritual here, on this topic the word religion in some ways more than others have changed drastically. This is a topic I do not like to discuss much or at all. But, I do have to admit a lot of changes are taking place both positively and negatively.
A lot of millemiums eyes are being opened and realizing that the traditional rules some of us have been following is causing some hovic . The older generation may say it is the reason we are facing some challenges in religion. I would say it is time to realize we are dividing ourselves with different belief systems.
Technology has really changed the game in a lot of beliefs, traditions, rules and structure. But we are humans and have the power to use this to our advantage to probably save our planet, prevent one or two wars from happening and saving the generation after us from hate,envy,jelousy,racialism and religious division.
Maybe our generation would be the ones making the changes that really needed to take place many years ago. Because if we dont step out, break the cycle, help many get out the “rat race” and beat the system. We can be looking at traditions,routine, systems controlling us and destroying us completly.
To me the last few generations was not blessed the way we are now and many held back and really went with what they knew. There was a few that really shaken up this world and made huge changes . We know them and love them. But to be honest there was not enough, in our time at least half the population is tired, fed up and want something new.
Many are going out their way to change the “norm” including myself. Because we want change not only for ourselves but for others. It is not fair to have another generation embrace half the challenges our planet is facing and about to face without knowledge, example, proper leadership and a little less burden from last generations.
It is not fair to drown our children and children children with things we was told was the way to live and never challenge any of this for the better.
Our world has changed whether we like it or not, sorry to say. It will never be the same and reminiscing on how old times was is not helping any of us with the struggles we have to face if we do not deal with the issues NOW.
Trust me when I say we have many issues, worldwide. We have to all make a effort to bring change into our lives because if we do not. We may not have anyone who would be able to live to 50 on this planet. The stress levels would be too much, murder rates around the globe will be a nightmare, climate change will destroy a continent and wars will begin all over the place over every issue raised.
Let us take what is happening now as a example, and make small steps within ourself to change and then we can begin to change those around us. I am hopeful for the future of our planet because I see hope in my generation and the next.
We had it wrong for many years and many of us want change. So, let us all make the decision to bring change into our lives step by step.
This way our children and grandchildren would watch the news and smile because they know they can walk down the street without being harassed. They can go to the mall, they can travel without fear around the globe and know their parents had a part to play in creating a changed world for the better.
Manifestation of goals is always a step by step process. At least it is for me, it is a daily process of taking small steps and decisions to reach a place in your life you know is 100% you.
These decisions can be hard at first but it is necessary to reach a goal. We all have those goals and we all have those steps in our mind we would like to see ourself reach.
I have reach a point in my life I no longer wait. The waiting game is no longer in me maybe it is because I am older now and wiser to know when to wait and when to go after it right away.
Lately I have found myself not waiting anymore and just pushing to reach that goal.
So far I can say when I look at my life I am pleased with where I am now. I am happy with the journey I have been through and I know I was prepared by my life experiences to face what is ahead.
Maybe it is something in the air but I have a strong desire for change. Maybe it is all the decluttering in my life but I have reach a point in life I no longer want to hide behind the mask I want to push for those goals and reach them without any hesiatation.
Changing my mindset, surroundings and attitude has been one of the biggest challenges and it is a day to day journey but I have learned it is worth it in the end. Each new day is the start of something new and I am always looking forward to what is next. It took a lot to reach to this point but with consistent work on myself and shedding a lot of old layers. I have reach to this point and I am still growing and shedding a lot of old patterns, ways, mindset and behaviors behind and I am loving every moment of it.
I will admit at times it is a bit sad to leave behind a lot of my old self but I know it is worth it in the end. To live the full peaceful life with love and complete hapiness.
I want this for everyone because I always believe there is more to life than just an average life that has been handed down to us by generations.
We have learned a lot from our parents and grandparents but their time have been so different to ours. We live in a new dimension of manifesting goals and dreams and anyone can come out of a ditch in life.
I believe this one, a huge thanks goes to technology and being able to connect with one another from all over the world. This is a blessing one my parents and grand parents never had, and I plan to use to my advantage and touch many lives including yours.
You should do the same as well as we all change create the life we envision for ourselves. Why is that? Because you are reading this and your conscious is telling you something.
I recently found this video and was totally amazed. The wisdom and charisma is one I would say that is quite enlightening.
From this video I have learned a few points I would like to share that can be used as daily motivation. These wise words from many and used by a motivational speaker to enlighten so many can be reflected upon daily.
1 – In the end, we only regret the chances we did not take. This is so powerful and yet very true. If we live in our comfort zone all the time we may never know what this world has to offer.
2 – Take Risks – If you win, you will be happy. If you lose, you will be wise.
3 – Don’t die wondering. – This follows in line with number two. If we do not take calculated risks we may go through our whole lives wondering what if.
4 – It is not important how long you live, it is important how you live.
5 – A pessimistic sees the difficulty in every situation. While the optimistic sees the opportunity in every difficulty. – This is a beautiful way of thinking, as the way we see things affects us.
6 – Wheather you think you can or think you can’t you are right. – Henry Ford – Whatever is the outcome of your thoughts you are right as your thought controls your reality in life.
7 – As you think, so you become. – This is the truth as your thought controls your reality and your mind holds the power that brings forth your truth after some time. You manifest what you think in your subconscious and conscious mind. You are what you think quoted by Buddha.
8 – If you don’t control your mind someone else will – John Allston. I have been told a few times, which I have seen come true, to control your emotions and mind before it controls you. This is a true yet strong statement. Everything starts with one thought.
9 – Poor thinking habits, keeps most people poor. If we think poorly of ourselves we would stay stuck in financial strain. If we judge ourselves harshly we will never grow. If we allow other people opinions hold a spot in our mind we would stay with social expectations. Poor mindsets leave us with a poor life.
True happiness is not found in material wealth. It is found in a deep core feeling of gratitude and pleasure in life moments. Many of us find it in unexpected moments this can be early in the morning or late at night right before we head to sleep.
This moment that is peaceful is one that is very unique and special to everyone. Pure happiness cannot always be found in material gains as it eventually fades away and get old but a special moment in the sunrise or sunset is special and always there for us.
I have found over the years that gaining more and more in life is never fulfillment but these are always moments I am at pure peace and I am happy truly happy at that moment. A lot of times this can be found in a simple walk in the park alone, nature or absorbing your alone time or special moments can bring a sense of joy and peace. True sanitary that is special for each of us.
Many find this in later years in life but I am really grateful to learn earlier than later. I know I find happiness when I can smile within and I know I radiate a joy to others so I can help others along the way. We have to be able to distinguish in life necessary pleasure and unnecessary pleasures that can be addictive and disruptive to our well being.
We have to know when we are becoming obsessive over items and know when to simple let go. This can become a beautiful moment for us that will can be a moment of hapiness. Remember a time you was obsessed over a item or idea and the moment it is no longer around or fulfilled you are no longer obsessing over it.
Practice slowly letting go of things and ideas and your life will have a different approach. One thing I have learned to keep my happiness and peace is when something happens that may upset me. I stop and take a deep breath and ask myself why am I really upset and look at the underlining answer of me.
Then I realize I had my own selfish desire at that moment. Like for instance if I am driving and someone gives me a bad drive automatically I will get a little turn off because we want everyone to drive like us. When we remove that expectation we would not be so upset and not obsess over it for the entire day.
The same goes in work, family members, neighbors, peers and random strangers. We should drop the expectations and leave it to be, it will save us a peace of mind and our happiness.
Happiness is always found in moments and it is in those small moments we find peace love and joy. I always find it in walking,jogging or spending time alone, it is a peace and stillness that no one can take away. Hope you find this as well in your own little ways in life moments.
Do you know Gratitude makes us joyful? Practicing gratitude can become a daily practice. This can take place by having a gratitude journal or saying out loud what you are grateful for, in life. These small gestures help in extraordinary ways and open our eyes to what is happening around us. This helps you slow down and stop to think of small blesses from the Universe.
Whenever you are angry or in pain shift your thinking to being grateful for anything this really changes your perspective. This shifts your thinking and you will notice your moods changes. You will even notice small things that you can easily pass you by and help you appreciate the little things in life.
Practicing gratitude has helped me in many ways, I have seen small blessings in everything and been able to shift my thinking with time. Whenever I may see myself in a rut and can’t seem to shake myself out of a funk. Changing my thoughts to the smallest blessing brings such a joy my brain automatically changes and I always find light at the end of the tunnel.
So, when one of those daunting moments come upon you shift your thinking and think of one thing to be grateful for in life. You will see the ultimate difference in your mood and thinking pattern.
What you think, you can manifest towards your life. Thoughts and words go hand in hand and can bring forth your reality. They say what you say and believe is what brings forth in your day to day life. That is why you have to be so careful what you say inwardly and outwardly.
Young children thinking can be affected from a very young age. Which can have an effect on their lives with the way they see things from a young age.
There is so much violence happening around the globe and children and teenagers are involved, and many are asking themselves why. Well, the answer lies in what we let our little ones view and take in from young. What is being put in their subconscious mind from an early age?
I can tell you a lot of cartoons and movies have a lot of violence and graphical images, that are being put in a young one mind from the age of 3. Many are giving there kids video games and having them unsupervised with their internet and tv time. Some children are even more tech-savvy than their own parents which are even scarier.
Whatever they are being shown on their devices they are putting into their subconscious minds. That, unfortunately, leaves an effect on them for a lifetime.
When positive alignment is placed around someone, to view or put in their minds. They will transform their thinking to positive thoughts only and bring forth positive thinking, words, and actions. Our subconscious mind is where our deepest thoughts lie and some thoughts go way back. This leads to our conscious mind and it eventually brings forth in our day to day lives.
There is a quote from Jesus Christ which states ask and it will be given, seek and you will find, knock and the door will be opened to you.
Our thoughts go the same way with our actions, when we think of our lives and envision our future we must think positive. This is because we are asking the Universe for assistance, seek with all your mind and heart. When you are seeking for an outcome you are searching for results and when you bring positive alignment to it, you already envision a healthy outcome.
Knock and the door will be opened, always keep your thoughts on the positive side of a request or situation. This is because you have asked the Universe for assistance and it will help you, once you believe with all your heart and mind.
Your mind is a powerful tool and you need to find ways to keep it on a positive aspect. Every day find 5 positive affirmations and say it daily, this can help when negativity creeps in and it always does. You will see the difference in situations when it doesn’t go your way.
Always choose different thoughts and your actions will fall in line.
There is another saying that I have heard once or twice before by many motivational speakers. Fake it until you make it. This switches your brain to have you thinking, you have already reached your goal. The Universe will fall in align and help you align your thoughts to your belief with time.
Expect a positive outcome and it will come. Expect luck and it will come. What we determine, is what comes forth in our lives.
Take 5 minutes a day to visualize your success, breath deeply when you are doing this meditation. Close your eyes and focus on the goal being acquired. This will help when you become stressed or when negativity begins to creep inside.
Try to remember positive moments when you acquired your goal. This will help with getting the feel, taste and smell you had at the time. Use this feeling when envisioning your future goals and see how it affects your thoughts when under high pressure.
When you envision the success, it will be brought forth in your day to day life. Tell the Universe exactly what you want and leave it all in the higher force hands to deal with, you have already started your process or done your part. When you let go and not continually dwelling on it, you are putting out that you are expecting this to come forth in your favor.
Happiness is a state of mind, so always be happy. Happiness is no means to an end of problems. It is something that you mindfully let happen to you.
Winners are always happy even when their world can be tumbling down. Nothing in life is permanent and we can always change circumstances but it always begins with your thoughts, towards everything.
Never let outside influences affect you, and how you see yourself. You can control circumstances and make them into opportunities and the Universe will bless you.
Failure is never a failure, it’s another chance and a new beginning of another book or chapter.
Most importantly, always practice living in the present. You can envision the future, but you must always make happiness a habit.
Our thoughts determine our actions, whatever you believe you will achieve. Each of us own it to ourselves to remember this when we are going about our day to day lives.
Our greatest gift is our minds and it can take us in many different directions if we allow this to happen. Our subconscious mind is programmed to help manifest what we want in our lives and we own it to ourselves to keep a positive mind.
Whatever your mind feeds upon will be attracted to you, even if we may not dwell on it much. Just a little thought or judgement on ourselves can feed this to the Universe for us. So, always be mindful of our thoughts as this is coming from within.
The Universe is there to help us manifest what we need to achieve in this world. If we use this energy wisely we can bring abundance in our world but it has to begin from within.
All success begins with a clear purpose of what you see with your life. You have to program your mind to see the vision and always see the positive outcome as the Universe will fall in line.
Write down what you want to acquire in life and be very clear as you are jotting down your future and goals of your life. Make decisions and take steps to reach that goal and keep a positive mind so things can fall in line.
Write down what you intend to give for receiving your goal in mind. Repeat these at least five times daily and make this a daily ritual to help you remember what you are aiming for in life.
Collaborate with more influential people and create a winning mindset team around you at all times. Negative attitudes will create failure in and around you. Mental attitudes regarding your present life is what you can control at the time. Never dwell in the past or the future as we have no control over this at the time.
Here are seven healthy habits you can pick up to reach your goals in life.
1 -Go the extra mile. In everything you do go the extra mile to reach that goal.
2 – Be honest with yourself in everything you do.
3 – Speak up.
4 – Stay present in the moment. Always live in the now, do not dwell on the past or the future. Take steps to reach goals in life but never dwell on them. Work towards them and leave the rest to the Universe.
5 – Have confidence. If you do not believe in yourself how can anyone else believe in you.
6. – Listen
7. – Manage your time wisely. Never be caught up being so busy that you never get time to get things done that you always had in mind. It will only be a dream and illusion after some time. Put in the time and effort and manage your time wisely. This way you can work on your dreams and at the same time live your life.
In the end it all begins within ourselves or as what Napolean Hill quoted. “Our minds become magnetized with the dominating thoughts we hold in our minds and these magnets attract to us the forces, the people, the circumstances of life which harmonize with the nature of our dominating thoughts.” Napoleon Hill
Basically he is saying it all begins within. So stop yourself when you begin to judge yourself, hold yourself back when you feel the pinch to feed on the negativity because it will have a affect now and later down in your life.
