Mental strength

Your mind is a beautiful thing. You can create and shape the world that you live in with a simple thought. The masses always say, “I will believe it when I see it.” This is such an old way of thinking that it has become engrained in our minds. The way this is worded is saying that until you see something you will not be able to believe it. All the words are there we just need to change the order in which we recite them. Why don’t you say “I will see it when I believe in it.” This may not seem like a huge difference but this small change will change your entire life.

Your mind is so powerful that it will shape the life you have. Tell your mind you are happy and it will show you more things to make you happy. Use your mind to create the life you want.

Your mind needs practice and needs training. This is something you have to work on. It won’t happen over night. Once you gain this mental strength your life will begin to change.

Believe that you can be wealthy. Believe that you can have everything that you desire. Believe you can find happiness in anything you do. Believe in yourself. Once you believe, your mind will find the path you need to be on. You control what your mind believes and your mind will control what you achieve

Pessimism

Even pessimism can move you forward with your goals. Pessimism is simply not seeing the positive aspects in whatever you are focused on. It’s okay not to see the positive side of things. Seeing the negative should only make you work that much harder.

Are you making enough money? No your not. Are you at the best job you could be? No you’re not. You can always be better at whatever you are doing. Never settle. Never be happy with where you are. Always move forward and when you think you have gone as far as you can go, go just a bit further. You are alot better then you give yourself credit for.

Let the negativity you see inspire you to do and be more.

Decide to be happy

When you wake up tomorrow think about the kind of day you want to have and you will find out that, that kind of day happens. Even if the day you would want to happen doesn’t, you need to act as if it did. Ghandi said it best, ” Be the change you want to see in the world.” Act as if. Play the role. Be happy in the face of adversity. 

What are the things you would do if you were happy? I can tell you with absolute certainty that you would not want to waste your time being in a state of unhappiness. You may go out with friends, be outside enjoying the weather, you could be doing any number of things. This is you. Be the type of person you want to be even if you currently are not. Happiness is a choice and you can decide whether or not you are going to be happy with every decision you make.  Stop making the decision to be unhappy. 

How to build habits

Everyone has habits. Some we know of and other we may have no idea that we have.  Building a good habit is quite easy and you can also use the act of building a good habit to replace older habit that no longer serve you. There are only three steps to building a new habit: Head, Heart, and Hands.

The Head part of this is probably the easiest. This only consist of determining the habit in which you want to create. Think about the end result you want to accomplish. Do you want to wake up earlier? Do you want to start exercising more often? Whatever you want to do, you just need to think it up. This is the first step to creating your new habit. Head.

Heart is the second step and it is a bit more complicated. Complicated in the way of truly understanding not in the way of being difficult. The Heart step is looking at the habit you want to create and deciding why you want to create it. What is it about the habit that makes it so important to you. No matter the habit you wish you create there will be something, or maybe someone, that is the driving reason for it. Even if it is the same habit, it is assured that the reason for it will vary by person. The reason for the habit has to linger inside you even when you don’t think about it. The reason you want to build this habit will be so personal that you can not even consider the idea of not being able to do it. This is the Heart.

The last step of building a habit is the Hands. This is the final step of building a habit.  Hands is the action step. It is time to start doing the habit. You have had the idea(Head), you have the reason(Heart), and it is now time to act(Hands).  Start doing the habit which you want to build. Whatever habit you want to build, start doing it.

This is all it takes to build a habit.

When you choose to change a habit you already have it is simple.  Follow the same previous steps and start with the opposite of the habit you are trying to rid yourself of. If you don’t wake up early enough because you stay up watching TV. The the new habit may be to shut the TV off at an early time.  This is the Head, now just determine the Heart and put it into action with the Hands.

Good luck with changing your life for the better.

Thanks Giving

Thanksgiving has come and gone again. We all have left overs in the fridge and our lives have continued. After the left overs our gone we don’t even think about the day until the following year. This is sad to think about. 

Thanksgiving is a day we get together with friends and family alike to “Give Thanks” for everything in our lives. We have dedicated one day of the year to be grateful for everything we have. Why is it that we only do this for one day? We should give thanks for everything we have in this life alot more often. Realize what you have and give thanks. Bring positivity into your life. Try arranging a Thanksgiving type meal more then once a year. Invite your friends, invite your family, and invite anyone close to you to get together and enjoy a meal. Granted it does not have to be a huge turkey dinner every time but prepare the meal together. The comradery that comes from working together and then enjoying the spoils is priceless. Bring everyone together and bring more happiness into your life. 

It’s Easy

Anything you want to do is easy. If you want to change, if you want to make money, if you want a better job and anything you can think of is quite easy to obtain. Then why don’t you have absolutely everything you want in your life, because anything easy to do is also easy not to do. 

The only reason we don’t have all the things we want is because it is easier to do something else. Human nature is to take the easiest path possible. We know that we should exercise but it is easier to turn on Netflix and relax. We always choose the easiest path. We all want to be happy and enjoy our life but it’s just so much easier to complain about it rather then change it. 

The key to this is realizing what we are doing. Realize that the easiest way to do things isn’t always what is best. Think about what you are doing and how it will affect you in the long run. You have to make conscious and deliberate decisions throughout your day. What do you want and how are you going to get there. These things need to aid your daily decisions. It really is that easy. 

Change

Are you happy in your life? Are you happy with the amount of money you make? Are you happy at your job? Are you happy with the car you drive? Are you happy with the area you live in? These are the only a few questions we have about our own life. The thing that they all have in common is the solution. Change. 

If you are unhappy about the answer to any of those questions the answer is simple, change.  Einstein said that ,”Insanity is doing the same thing over again and expecting different outcomes.” If you are unhappy quite doing the same thing over again. It’s time for change. 

Get a new job. Save money for a new car. Look for a new place to live. Go back to school and build your education so you can make more money. Everything you need to do means you have yo change. Change takes time and you have to put the time in to achieve it. Think about what you want. Make the necessary changes in you life and then be happy. Be happy with your car, your job, the amount of money you make. You deserve to be happy and if you are not, it is time to change.
