Our body is a temple and we must appreciate it. We must love ourselves and feed our mind and hearts with good foods.
Our Body is a part of us while we are here on earth. When we leave it will no longer be a part of us.
How we treat this body will help us uncover the balance of our lives and help us uncover who we are in life.
We must norish our bodies with good food and know when we are not we are damaging our organs. We must exercise this body as we need our body full alertness to help us manifest our goals.
When we eat food that does not help us or have drinks that is not norishing us we are actually cutting our life span short.
When our bodies are not norished we cannot fight a disease that may come on us. When we do not exercise we are unable to have the full energy to get the job done.
We also need rest as our body needs to recharge. I have found when I get less than six hours sleep I cannot focus the same when I get 7 to 8 hours full rest. My body cannot perform the same because I have not been able to fully recharge from the previous day.
If we want the best results we must treat this body with the best.
Have that good healthy meal daily along with that healthy snack.
Take the stairs instead of the elevator especially if you know you cannot get that run or walk today.
Train your mind and body to head to sleep by a certain time and wake up by a certain time. This can help with discipline and you will realize you can flow through the day easier.
Of course there are days we want a rest from the constant planning. Take that day off and have that cake because you need that time to rest and reflect.
What I have learned it is all about balance. We need balance in our lives and without balance we cannot see the road ahead clearly.
Our bodies need that care and when we do not take care of our temple we will feel the effect of never taking care of it.
After all do we all want the best from ourselves.
So, let us take care of this one body we all have.
Let us be awake because life is like a dream. Let us all come to our reality and embrace what is surrounding us.
Love like it is your last day. Take a cool walk even if you are running late. My dear this life is the only one you have to live so embrace every moment of it.
Smile at a stranger and sing in the shower, no one but you should care because this life is for you to be your true self. Do not hold yourself back and say no without hesitation because that precious time you have is never coming back.
Live and be awake, do not let another year pass you by and you wonder where your life is going away. Make every moment count because this life is yours for the take.
The breeze blow and you have woken up this morning. That is enough for you to want to give it another shot. Because while you are wishing away someone else is begging for another day.
Our lives are precious so live it up and stop wasting your seconds away. No one reaches success or happiness by giving up so stay awake and know you are going to make it one day.
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.
This can be one of the most horrific feelings anyone can face. The agony,the shame,the disgrace and the pain. It can all come rushing down and hit you bang in the face.
Many of us suffer with this day by day and have no idea how to face any of this by the day. It can be eating away at our skin and our pain can be so deep it cuts like a knife. Many would say I live with so many expectations, that at times I forgot how it feels to actually fail. So, when this hits you in the front page your heart can’t take it anymore.
My eyes, oh my eyes, the pain I feel from crying out my eyes. I know so many feel this pain because we live in a world in so much pain. That we forgot when we actually end up in pain we can’t even manage to lift up our heads to see the vail.
Time and time again, we would fail but we have to find a way to mold it away. I wish I had a pill that says, it will pass away but I know it will be a lie after some time. Living with pain is a hell of a thing, that when it actually goes away we forget, that actually one day we have to deal with all of this again.
So I would say when it comes to facing failures and pain we have to find a way to deal with all of it. When we do figure it out, remember to lift your head and move on. All the sweet words of time heals everything , and everything happens for a reason is all nicely said to all. But we all know when something tragic happens, it is hard to fall asleep at night.
All the prayers and quotes can give us a push to move forward but in the end it is up to us to really want to move forward. Many talk about all the success many got but they always seem to forget to mention the amount of failures they had to endure to get where they are to this day. So don’t get too tied up with most success stories and always remember to ask how they got to that point.
Take back up your life and wipe away those tears because no one actually cares what you are doing with your time. Most just want something to talk about and many want one just one to take that jump.
Do what you want and if you fail many times. Just know that at least you tried. This life is full of many disguises and one of them is making everyone feel like they have to wear a disguise for all.
This is your life to live and failure and pain is all of part of it but know when you have made it. You have really made it and most of the times it is because of failure and pain and you understand the true meaning of life.
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.
“Without hustle, your talent will only get you so far” – Gary Vaynerchuk
Someone’s sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago. — Warren Buffett
Three impactful leaders who have worked hard in many ways to reach where they are today. There are many others as well but Jack Ma, Gary Vaynerchuk and Warren Buffett have become giants in their field by following mindful steps to reach success.
This success didn’t come over night they all have different ways of reaching success and each one went threw failure of some kind. They have grown from failure and know hard work is always the key to victory.
I will be going threw a few of their quotes from their speeches which have helped many over a period of time. First I will start with Jack Ma, he is the Founder and Executive Chairman of Alibaba Group. Jack Ma was a former English Teacher from China and now has one of the world’s largest e-commerce businesses.
Some of his quotes has caught my attention and I will share these with you.
1 – Look at Challenges as opportunities.
This is a hard one but over time I have taken this advise and look at every single circumstance I find myself in as a beautiful opportunity.
2 – Have Fun
Have fun as life is short and we came into this world to enjoy life.
3 – Focus on Quality not Quantity
This statement could not be any truer. When we focus on producing more, quality may decrease. I have seen this with my own eyes.
3 – Be the first
This statement is special to me. We must aim to be original and the first in everything. Following the crowd does not cut it anymore in our times. We need people to stand up and not be scared to be the first.
4 – Prepare for the future
Everyone is caught up with the now. We must take small steps to prepare for the future.
5 – Respect competitors and learn from them.
This statement explains itself, respect and learn from one another. You never know what can happen.
6 – Surround yourself with greatness
If you want to be successful, surround yourself with those that have the same aim with you. Be around the goal keepers, the leaders, motivators and innovators, these energies are what you want to surround yourself with daily.
7 – It is not what company you get into, it is what boss you want to follow.
Leaders inspire people. They want to mold those around them to be the best,that way they can get the best. Not every company has a leader with this trait.
8 – Believe in yourself
If you don’t believe, how you expect anyone else to believe in you.
9 – Be optimistic about the future
Always have a positive mindset towards the future ahead.
10 – Never complain
Do not even think about it. Once you complain your mood changes.
11 – Tomorrow is new. Always show up.
Never give up and be consistent.
12 – If you have a dream. Push for it.
Never give up and dreams don’t manifest overnight.
Gary Vaynerchuk is a blogger, author, speaker and Entrepreneur. Born in the former Soviet Union in what is now Belarus. Vaynerchuk was one of the first adopters of social media to build a following that’s now a huge success. His speeches is very straight forward and paints the ugly side of Entrepreneurship, he always stresses on hard work and being prepared for failure.
Here are seven of his quotes that stood out for me.
1 – Work hard, work smart and be patient
Always work smart and have patience. Success does not come overnight.
2 – Put in the work and play the hard way.
Do not try any short cuts. Always give your all to your work and passion.
3 – If you want it work for it.
Gary Vaynerchuk stresses a lot on working hard because you cannot reach that goal without the work.
4 – Nothing in life is free, nothing happens overnight.
Everything you have you have to work for it. Success comes from consistent hard work and sacrifice.
5 – Execute your ideas
Do not just talk , do the work.
6. – Do the things that matter.
Do everything that you believe in and would have a impact in the long run.
7. – Don’t make excuses
Never make any excuse for anything. We live in a era that has so many opportunities, you just need to find a way to use it. We live in a time where our parents and grand parents would love it. We are in the time and correct place to make a difference each one of us. Wherever we are.
Warren Buffett is a business magnate,investor, speaker and and philanthropist who serves as the chairman and CEO of Berkshire Hathaway. He is actually one of my favorites with motivational tips and has a ton of knowledge in what he does best.
Here are 10 of his quotes that stood out to me over the years.
1 – Find your passion
When you find your passion, you find your cause in life and fire will light up in your stomach to push for your goals.
2 – Hire well
Companies always need to hire passionate persons who want to help build a organisation. Not just one who wants that pay cheque.
3 – Don’t care what others think
This is a powerful one. We live in a generation where everyone cares a little to much what people think. The sad part about this is ,the person may not even be thinking of you.
4 – Read,read, read
Warren Buffet read a lot, he stated in many shows about his hours spend reading. Reading helps develop minds and brings new ideas. Plus as a aspiring writer I always try to read as much as I can, this helps with my articles.
5 – Have a margin of safety
Always have a safety net or amount to invest to draw a line. Whatever you look at this as, always have a margin of safety.
6 – Have a competitive advantage
Always try to have a upper hand in situations.
7 -You can’t make a good deal with a bad person.
Watch who you are getting your eggs in a basket with in business.
8 – Always be competing
Never get comfortable because that is the moment your completion will sneak up on you.
9 – Some things take time
Nothing happens overnight.
10 – Act with integrity
It takes 20 years to build a reputation and five minutes to ruin it. If you think about that, you’ll do things differently. This statement is so powerful that it happens almost every day.
Each one of these leaders have a mark in the business world and they all started from scratch. They understand hard work, consistency, reading and having a passion. They used mindfulness when approaching situations and will leave legacies after them. This did not happen overnight , and each one of us can do the same. Once we practice these principles and the many others who have similar ones.

We must affirm these and many more every morning. It is the stepping stones of our lives, it is what brings us to the next place and the next level.
The universe is created for us to manifest our goals into the world. We have to think of it, to achieve it and embrace it.
There is a saying the harder the battle is, the sweeter the victory would be for us. Whatever it is we want to achieve, it will be a difficult road and may even feel overwhelming at times. Those are the moments we have to feel it and embrace it because we are getting closer to our breakthrough.
Each morning we must take ownership of our lives, write down that goal, find a way and test yourself. Take that extra step, envision yourself reaching that goal, feel the victory and embrace it. You will reach that peak moment, once you show up and make the sacrifice and take a bold step every day.
Watch your movements, how you take each step and be consistent with yourself each morning and show up. Create the life you envision for your self, know your mission and you will know what will drive you.
Create your life your mission and never make it about your position. Each day look at yourself in the mirror and remember your mission and push for that vision. We all have it, I know deep in your heart you know you want more in your life.
Always know the way to what you are doing in this life and with every movement. Ask yourself why am I doing this? Be mission-driven, make your life mission-driven and you will see the difference every morning.
Whatever it is you want in life remember to ask yourself. Why do you want it? Be clear about what you want. Write down your goals daily for what you want to achieve. Feel every moment of your life because its only one you have left. Be a good receiver on everything and be grateful for small blessings.
Make every action with what you want to expect in life. Create that destiny you envision. See abundance in everything and always be consistent. If you see it, believe it, envision it every morning, you will reach that goal in this life. The universe is always on your side.
It is going to be hard to start over, to head to the unknown and try again. They say you never know what you have until it is gone but this time it stings and cuts like a knife.
I do not like being send into the unknown and unfamiliar. This time is going to be different, this time I have to be stronger, this time I have to swallow the pain and push to move forward. This time Goodbye is going to be different. I would not make the same decision that can land me in the same situation again. This time I would transform to a butterfly.
I know this happened for a reason and the reason would show up one day. I am in pain yet again, life has once again hurt my heart and old wounds that I thought was healed is showing up again.
This time I will address this situation, this time I will admit, I am wrong for letting myself get too comfortable and allowing life to drive me to a wall. I will admit I didn’t put myself in the driver seat this rounds. I will take the driver seat and take charge of my life I will leave this situation with my head high and always remember I am worth more than what life throws at me with a curve-ball.
This is my opportunity to shine, and I will so will each person who reads this and feel totally defeated by life. We will move forward from a caterpillar to a butterfly.
We attract what we think and every situation creates a reaction so remember when life throws at you a curve-ball or lemon. You can take that situation and create your own destiny. Every obstacle to a opportunity and every failure as a stepping stone closer to success.
Close the door, stop banging on it trying to open it back. Leave it alone and move on, this time really say goodbye. This time accept what is, embrace what you feel, forgive yourself and say goodbye.
“Your mind is everything. What you think you become. ” – Buddha
Our thoughts is a powerful tool that can direct our life and determine if we can become a product of greatness or negativity.
We must always make it our task to protect our energies around us and surround ourselves with people and situations that will fill your cup. Never let the bitterness of this world get the better of you as, each of us have a individual right to harvest greatness and send out positive vibes to the universe.
I believe and have learned what you think you become as many successful and spiritual leaders have taught. To stay on a level head of peace and tranquility we must not engage in gossip, negative conversations or partake in any sort of news that may switch your energy.
We live in a angry world if you really continually look at the negative side but if you stop and look and see the beauty in this world you would be amazed. There are many great leaders, motivators and situations happening around us daily that makes many smile. A simple moment as a birth of child, a team winning a football match or a teenager helping a elderly woman crossing the road are moments that take your breath away. These are the simple moments that make a huge difference in many lives.
Let excellence be your brand and to cultivate this you have to think of greatness and surround yourself with greatness. Watch your peers, your conversations , even your eating habits all these routines have a effect on your mental and spiritual health. Make a list daily of what you are thankful for, if you are having a hard time thinking of anything just remember you have life, and that’s a second chance to make a change.
Let us look deep within ourselves to find our true purpose and find the passion that burns within us to reach our highest self. If you haven’t found your passion push to reach a goal. List a goal and persuade it with your fullest. If you fail you are getting closer to your ultimate goal and greatest potential. You will find that passion and that flame .
Always put God first, that higher source,that ultimate help. He will guide you with your energies, passion, flame and purpose. Always be thankful and grateful this will aid in protecting your energies and thinking.
Remember greatness is the goal and always think of the ultimate goal. Never dwell in what you do not have and always put your mind on your vision, your future and reaching that target. What you think, you become and we should all think I am greatness.
