It’s always the right time…to begin. If you have the idea, the dream, the goal- then it’s time. You will find a way to make it happen. It is why the dream lives on inside you- because you have what it takes to bring it into the physical world.
Use that power and use it now- don’t let your dream die an early death.
Notice them…your feelings. They are your true barometers; they are your measuring sticks and your compass about the direction you’re going in.
If something doesn’t feel right; if it feels “off” somehow then don’t ignore it. Stop and really think about what you’re doing. If it still makes you uncomfortable then maybe it’s time you changed your path…or at least made a slight adjustment
Give your inner self credit for knowing what’s best for you. Trust it. And go with your gut.
Learn- to trust your capabilities. Trust yourself. When you feel moved to do something then move forward. When you feel you can do something new, there’s a reason for that- it’s your inner voice telling you that you can. Go with it. Believe in it.Believe in yourself.
When you feel the fear of “second guessing” yourself start to surface then push it back. Remind yourself how far you’ve come- and you know what? You can take yourself the rest of the way too.
What are you telling yourself? Are you telling yourself things that make you happy? Do you encourage yourself? Do you see the glass as half-full? Do you treat yourself like your own best friend? If not, why not?
We have a choice in this life. We have the power to make ourselves happy- or to make ourselves miserable. And we do that largely through our inner dialogue.
That little voice inside your head will keep talking. It will continue to give you feedback, but what that little voice tells you is up to you because you program it.
When you hear it speak negatively and pull you down stop it and say “Hey now, little voice, I do deserve to be happy. I can do what I set out to do. I can make a positive difference in this world and now I want you to start reinforcing those beliefs for me.”
See if the little voice starts to change its tune and sing your praises. The more positive you hear the more positive you do.
Are you enjoying it- your journey in life- or are you just fixated from getting from Point A to Point B as fast as you can? Do you often begin sentences with “I’ll be happy when ____ (you fill in the blank)
You know what? Life will end soon enough so you don’t have to try to make it go any faster- stop and savor the small moments as they unfold- that is some of the stuff that makes life worth living.
You know what? If you keep say stuff like “I’ll be happy when…” you’ll find that when your “when” rolls around you are happy- for about five minutes, and then you’re off on yet another “I’ll be happy when…” and then in the meantime, you’re miserable.
You know what I’m talking about. Living life this way makes no sense and in the end, won’t make you happy- but enjoying the actual journey; seeing it as part of a learning and enrichment process will.
You can (if you really want to) expand your horizons. You can take the first step towards the hings you want in life.
Can it be scary? You bet. Can it make us anxious and uncomfortable? Definitely. Is it worth it? What do you think?
Do you think it would be better for you to spend your life in your “comfort zone” and never know the thrill of stretching your boundaries; never knowing what it’s like to discover new things and just how much you’re really capable of? Do you really just want to sit there and collect dust?
So, at the end of your life do you want to be known as the adventurer or the dust collector? I know which one I choose- how about you?
Do you spend time there…in your imagination, seeing your dreams take form, feeling your goals coming to fruition? Are you spending time in this magical place? Or, do you brush off your imagination as useless, a waste of time, or a place only for children?
It’s from the imagination that some of the great inventions of our time sprang from. Einstein used it. Edison used it. These were not frivolous men. They did not view the imagination as a place for only little kids- they viewed it s a viable tool to help them on their journeys.
And so should you. Make the commitment today to spend at last a few minutes of the day in your imagination, visualizing your goals being realized, and see how it can be a very valuable tool.
Be you- because you shine just the way you are. You do! Stop and think about that for a moment. Look at all you do well. Stop comparing yourself to other people; each of us has own own unique talents, but so many times we downplay what we do well and almost over-play the talents of others.
You can certainly appreciate what others do well, and you should, but never at the expense of the things that you can do. Keep that in mind.
You have to start it first. We all want people to be kind to us, to listen when we speak, to understand and to smile. We all want that- but someone has to take the first step and that needs to be us.
We need to be kind first- to lend a helping hand when we can. We need to listen when someone speaks. To understand and to smile. We need to set the example, because what we put out there we will attract back to us.
So, if we spread misery and sadness we’re not going to get that understanding smile; we’ll just get a bunch of people running for the hills when they see us coming their way.
Besides, it feels good to be nice and it’s the right thing to do. So let’s all do it a lot more.
It’s a reflection of you…your world; your life. The thoughts you think and the feelings you generate create it all around you; every minute of every day.
If you’re like this girl, she is happily dancing to her own beat and so are you.. You see life as a series of happy events and when challenges present themselves it is only to help make us better and stronger.
But if you’re generating thoughts of sadness and defeat; and if you are feeling that way every step of the way then that is what is popping up around you.
It’s your choice to make; it’s your world to live in.
Wonder why you might be having a bad day? Wonder why things might be less-than-perfect? And are you getting madder and madder just thinking about how your day is unfolding?
Think back…no not that far but think about yesterday. Think about how your day went. Think about how it started off. Did you wake up in a bad mood? Did you think to yourself that it was gonna be the crummiest day ever? Did you get mad at every little thing that didn’t go just as you planned?
Yesterday you set the tone for today. Yesterday you put your order in with the Universe about what would happen and how. Remember when you said it would be the worst day ever? Well, courtesy of our ever vigilant Universe you get exactly what you envisioned…crap.
Stop and think now, just how much better things would be if you greeted the day with a smile on your face expecting the best. Think how much better your day would be if you went to bed each night being grateful for a wonderful day and by looking forward to another one being brought to you with the sunrise. Think about it…
Watch your words. Watch what you say. Your words have the ability to encourage and soothe. They have the ability to bring a smile to someone’s face and to encourage them to take those first steps. They have the ability to send a heart soaring.
But they also have the ability to destroy hope. They have the ability to ruin a day. They have the ability to instill fear where there was none before.
Watch your words. Make them kind and uplifting. If you must criticize, then do it constructively. Don’t blindly shoot out cruel things. Once those words are out you can’t take them back. Words are powerful. Use them for good.
