Stop Being So Hard On Yourself

It’s important to sit back and take stock of where you are and how far you have come.

Too often we can become fixated on the next thing we are working on without recognising all that we have already done.
IMG_20170816_172239.png
Also know that it is okay to sit and ‘be’ where you are in this moment knowing that you are complete and enough.

It’s easy to get stuck in ‘I’ll be happy or content when…..’ I’m this that or the other.

You are both a work of art and a work in progress all at the same time. °
If you are striving to be the best version of yourself don’t be so hard on yourself because some people aren’t trying at all, so you are way ahead of most.

The pursuit of enhancement is a constant juxtaposition between eagerness and calmness. Learning to master and be okay with this restlessness is the real skill.

You are enough. We are one. You are loved and worthy and deserving of love.

Peace. Namaste.

Growth isn’t just possible. It’s what we are put here on earth to do.

I recently completed a 10k running race. I hadn’t competed in a race for a while and decided to sign up for this one (July 16) and a half marathon which takes place on August 20.

While I had continued to stay fit and run regularly I missed that feeling of following a training plan, going through specific phases of training, getting to an event feeling in top physical condition knowing that you were fully prepared to tackle the event to the best of your ability. It was with this in mind that I decided to enter these events.

I also entered them because there is no better high than that finish line feeling. No training session comes close and it is addictive.

As I have trained and prepared for these races I have also pondered the need for progression. What is it about humans that keeps us striving forward. Knowing that we are working towards a target is what keeps us moving everyday.

Then I watched an address from Rich Roll on Youtube (See it HERE) and it summed it up perfectly for me.

These next few paragraphs are taken from that address.

Growth isn’t just possible. It’s what we are put here on earth to do.
richroll (1).jpg
‘Life is not about the destination or the finish line. It is about the journey. If you commit your life entirely to something this will result in one of 2 outcomes either you will succeed or you will die trying. Which is its own form of success. ‘ Casey Niestat.

As much as I love toeing the line or crossing the finish line it is all about the journey. I aspire to my own sense of greatness to push the envelope on what I am capable of. Let go of perfection, detach from results,  be willing to fail and fail and fail again and when all is lost you pick yourself up and go the extra mile.

The limits that we place upon ourselves are mental projections, they are illusions. We must embrace the truth that we are so much more than we allow ourselves to be.

With this comes a sense of meaning and purpose that no other destination can rival. A deep satisfaction that your life has value that goes beyond the illusion of security and comfort over the priceslessness of adventure and experience. (end excerpt)

Thus, I have concluded that it is not about the medals or accolades for me any longer. If I finish a race I don’t keep the shirt or the medal. I’ve thrown out all my previous finishers medals. Now it is only about the pursuit of perfection for myself. Knowing that each day I am striving to be a better person in many facets of my life. Not just physically but emotionally, spiritually and mentally as well. I am by no means perfect (nobody is) but I am trying to be better day by day, and that is all that we can do.

So I urge you to start to evaluate your life. Start to live deliberately and intentionally instead of passively or apathetically. There are so many was that you can live an intentional life, you can start to listen to your intuition more and the internal guidance system that is steering you towards a purpose that is of greater value to yourself and to others.

I’m not talking about purpose in a new-agey, go out and change the world sort of way, I’m just talking about a way of life that best suits you, that is true to you, that you feel resonates with you and you are truly in tune with.

So many of us live lives that are so out of tune with our true rhythm that we douse ourselves in numbing activities (tv, bad food, alcohol, trashy gossip mags, negativity, etc.) to try and drown out that constant nudge from our intuition that ultimately has our best intentions at heart.

When you start to go in the direction that you are being pulled, rather than being pushed, this allows you to be of more value to yourself and to those around you. You can show up in a new light that was once dimmed and you can shine for all the world to see.

Peace. Namaste.

Give it away and it will come back to you

This blog is inspired by the recent Rich Roll Podcast that I listened to and was inspired to write and and act. Listen to it HERE

This was an amazing conversation between Scott Harrison and @richroll

I felt so moved and was inspired to act immeditely! It seems crazy to me that nearly a billion people go without clean water everyday. There are people that have to walk 8 hours a day just to get clean water and when they get back still have to cook, clean and raise a family. So the time you spent at work someone was walking just to get water.

I had a birthday recently and in the last few years I have been less and less inclined to celebrate it or to ask for gifts, for there was nothing I really needed that I couldn’t for myself. After listening to this podcast I have since donated my age in dollars to the charity. $34 is enough to provide clean water to 1 human. I have also committed to $10/month to this charity also.

When you think about it $10 a month is nothing. It’s your subscription to Netflix or Spotify or similar. It’s 2 coffees a week. Can you do without it?

I’ve always been reluctant to donate due to scepticism about how much actually gets to the intended cause. But with charity water 100% of donations go to the field to bring clean water to those in need. So I had no hesitation in donating.

I have also set up a campaign to raise 10x my age in aid of this great cause. If you would like to donate their is a link in my bio. After listening to this podcast I have no decided to pledge all future birthdays to this cause. Click HERE if you wish to donate.

Additionally I will be foregoing all Christmas presents and instead asking for donations because really there is nothing I feel the need to ask for. Knowing that I am making a difference in the lives of others would give me far greater satisfaction.

I urge you to listen to this podcast and to evaluate your life to look for areas that you can help this, or any great cause or those around you in general.

Let’s get out of this mentality of just looking out for ourselves, this ‘get mine’ mindset and instead ask how can we give more.

Peace. Namaste.

Jobs of the Future

Will your job still be there in the future?

There is no hiding from the fact that technology is progressing everyday. More and more we are turning to technology to perform all sorts of every day tasks. As it evolves it will even start to take over jobs.

What sort of jobs will be replaced in the future?

Oxford University economists predict that 47 percent of the total United States workforce is at high risk of being replaced by computerization over the next 20 years.

Over the last decade, machines have learned how to process spoken language, read facial expressions, classify personality types, and even carry out conversations.

Jobs like journalists, financial analysts, insurance underwriters, and even movie stars may soon be displaced by robots.

With 7 billion people on the planet how will we find jobs for us all?

We can’t expect the government to provide us with subsidies for basic living expenses and who wants to just live a basic existence anyway.

If you want to make an income in the future you will need to turn to new ways of generating an income. That means generating an income online, from you home (or anywhere for that matter).

How to achieve meaning in the new economy?

For so many people their sense of meaning comes from their job. But if that job no longer exists how will we derive meaning and a sense of worth?

The answer lies in helping others.

To feel better about yourself, do more for others and feel you sense of well-being and self-worth soar.

But how can you combine making an income as being kind to people?

That comes in the form of mentoring and coaching. You need to find something that is going to add value to people’s lives and that you can mentor, be mentored and coach others to do the same.

Start researching now for ways that you can start to learn part -time while continuing to work your current job or occupation so that if things come about in time you are not caught out and scrambling to find something.

Now is the time to get started and to work towards mastery. When the new economy comes you will be ahead of the curve and people will look to you for advice and options.

How To Live A Life of Passion

How often do you here these statements

‘If you work at a job you love you’ll never work a day in your life.’

or

‘Follow your passion.’

For some those phrases and similar can be the most annoying and patronising phrases they could here. Why is that? Perhaps it stirs something in them that they are too busy simply getting through life to even BEGIN to know or discover what they are passionate about.

The majority of people that work a 9 to 5 job HATE IT.

People say they want freedom but they are addicted to suffering.

Too many people are beaten into numbness and submission to even know what their passions are.

They think watching their favourite TV show, a box set at the weekend or shouting at the TV while their team plays on Sunday is passion.

No it’s NOT. It’s just denial! Distraction from facing the reality that is facing them for the next 40 years (or more) but rather than do something about it will people just keep themselves in a state of sedation with food, alcohol, small mindedness, cynicism etc.

Why? Because anything else would require action and for them to evaluate their life and they know what is facing them but don’t want to face it.

So in order to start living with passion and to find out what you are passionate about is to gain the freedom to do so.

If you are not living your passion. Ask yourself WHY NOT?

If you are BROKE it typically means that you are emotionally broken inside. It’s an abundant Universe. There is no lack. Lack is an illusion.

So if you are not allowing the abundance to flow into your life, its because you feel you need to suffer. It’s you that is blocking the abundance. It’s you that is not allowing abundance to enter into your being and your reality.

Start loving yourself more. Love yourself enough to forgive yourself. Speak about the reality you want. Be grateful for what you have while you pursue what you want.

Stop looking for other people to feel sorry for you and TAKE RESPONSIBILITY for your thoughts, words and emotions.

What would it take for you to break free of the cycle, to fire your boss and to be able to live life on your terms? To live a life of passion you need to find something to be passionate about.

Manifesting Your Desires

I love this analogy in relation to the manifestation or creation of your goals, dreams or desires…

If you were a sculptor on your first day of sculpting, you would not take a big clump of clay, throw it down on the table and say “Oh it didn’t turn out right.”

You would mould it, get better at it, add more clay. You would get different coloured clay. You would continue to find a way to evolve in your creative endeavour.

You may even get a new piece of clay and start over until you get closer to what it is you want to create.

You would not just throw it out and say “well that didn’t turn out very good.”

16684183_1917297371837426_3532799408878260495_n

But too often in life that is what we do. We throw the clay down. Manipulate it a bit but if the table spins too fast and the pottery goes to mush we just give up and have a myriad of reasons to justify our decision.

We all want immediate results or to be experts or great at it from day one but it isn’t like that.

You can have a goal or a dream for as long as you like as long as you keep working on it, moulding and moving forward. Take small steps, focus on what you can do right now not how far you have to go, focus on the attainment of the goal not on the absence of it or how long you haven’t had.

It’s Never Too Late

The crystal merchant awoke with the day, and felt the same anxiety he felt every morning. He had been in the same place for 30 years…Now it was too late to change anything. There had been a time when many people knew of his shop and he had thought how he would become rich as he grew older. But as time passed things changed, the nearby town bad grown faster and business had fallen off. Neighbours moved away. But the crystal merchant had no choice. He had lived 30 years of his life buying and selling cyrstals and now it was too late to do anything. (Adapted from the alchemist, paulo coehlo)

So many people find themselves in this situation in life i e. It’s too late to do anything. Or this is what I’ve always done.

12747265_1752527131647785_8091820764789334052_o

IT’S NEVER TOO LATE

to have dreams or to change things. If things aren’t working you have to change or nothing will change so if you are stuck in a rut, unmotivated or anything like that it is up to YOU to do something about it. You can’t wait for it. You’ve got to go get it.

The outer mirrors the inner.

If you are broke, you are broke minded. The outer mirrors the inner. Most people blame outside circumstances or people for their current situation.

But a broke minded person remains broke regardless of what’s happening around them. The truth is, broke minded people work very hard to stay that way. They put intense focus on all the things they don’t want and draw those things in like a tractor beam.

It’s just as easy to be success or ABUNDANCE minded as it is to be broke minded. it takes the same amount of energy.

Even sadder, is a broke minded person will take offense to this post. Their ego will take over and they will defend their broke existence. They will “Justify” = (Just If I) their situation and “Rationalize” = (Rational Lies) all the reasons it’s not their fault for being in the situation they are in.

A broke minded person feels jealousy or contempt at someone else’s success. If they see a guy driving a Lamborghini they make statements like “My Honda Civic gets me from point A to point Z just as well” or….”Somebody that pays $297k for a car has their priorities out of whack…If I had that money I would donate to charity”

But that broke minded person never has extra money, they donate nothing.

Who knows, maybe the guy driving the Lambo builds wells in Africa or orphanages in India. He has abundance.

Here’s the good news, being broke minded is a condition that can change!

The sooner your thoughts change, your self talk will change.

The sooner your self talk changes your countenance will change.

The sooner your countenance changes your actions will change.

You will become a success magnet. You will pull your desired reality into your experience.

You will become abundance minded.

You will attract people.

You will attract opportunity.

You will attract situations that serve your missions and directives and when you are flowing in abundance you will be able to bless many people!

It all starts with a decision. Ready?

Repeat after me.

“I AM A SUCCESS MAGNET. EVERYTHING I TOUCH PROSPERS. I FLOW IN ABUNDANCE AND MONEY FLOWS FREELY AND EASILY INTO MY LIFE. I AM BLESSED TO BE A BLESSING!”

Didn’t that feel good? Ahhhhh you’re welcome.

Are You Blocking Your Abundance?

What are your thoughts and feelings around money?

When someone wins the lotto do you say
‘Oh that’s too much’

Do you say things like

‘Oh i don’t need much’

Or

‘I’m not a greedy person’

16684011_10154720684295129_5370263384196632065_n

It’s nothing to do with greed. It is the association to money that has been engrained into that we are led to believe that the attainment of wealth is an evil or bad thing.

That thinking of fear and guilt around having lots of money is a poor man’s mentality that is indoctrinated into us.

It is what keeps us from amassing great wealth if we want it. Having wealth is not a bad thing. Neither is wanting it. We must free ourselves of that guilt.

What if you never had to worry about money again for the rest of your life?

What would that feel like? (Comment below)

When you focus on the feeling of freedom you are closer to achieving it.

Conor McGregor LOA Master

Conor McGregor

Not just the UFC champion

But a law of attraction MASTER

He was champion in his mind long before he ever had the belt around his waist.

If you have a vision or a thought in your mind and you can feel the feelings associated with it, feel the sense of calm come over you that it is achieved, the satisfaction, the tingles

If you get those feelings YOU CAN ACHIEVE THAT DESIRE

stay focussed on those feelings. On the abundance. Don’t let fear come back in to bring you back to self doubt.

Stay focussed on the positive and as you do the law of attraction is working for you. As you raise your vibration it brings that dream closer to manifesting in your reality.

Check out the video below to see what I’m talking about…..
