Daily Reminder…..

Happy Thursday……

Millions of individuals fail to live the life they’ve always wished to live. They neglect to realize their ambitions and give up on their big dreams as soon as they take on the first obstacle. Among the strongest reasons for this mental attitude is that these individuals don’t believe in themselves.

Believing in yourself is being sure that you’re going to do whatever you put your mind to, even if other people are against you. Generally, when you choose to take a big challenge or do something that they failed to do, you’ll find that everybody is putting you down. Under the pressure of this criticism a few of us start to question our own abilities and sooner or later give up. The few that manage to believe in themselves and continue down the path they’ve selected will be the ones that enjoy the glory of success and learn to love themselves.

A few individuals think that unless everybody agrees with them then they’re wrong. This is altogether untrue. No one ever succeeds without having individuals resisting his ideas at one point or another.

This rejection later became the grounds for people’s success. If individuals think that you’re incorrect, or that what you’re doing will yield no result, just move forward by either convincing them of your viewpoint straight off or leaving them to be convinced by force when they see what you’ve accomplished.

If you challenge individuals once or twice and go against their impressions then succeeded, even if it’s in a little or superficial task, you’ll wind up building confidence in your powers and your ideas. Only then will their impression not affect you much because you have previous experience that proves that you can succeed.

Ask your higher power for guidance and help and you’ll feel that you’re supported by a power which is superior to anybody who rejects what you’re doing and to the unforeseen difficulties you’ll most probably face on your road to achieving your goal

If you don’t believe in yourself you’ll wind up discarding your ideas, and not accomplish self love.

On the other hand, if you believe in yourself and continue fighting for what you want and develop self love; individuals may reject your ideas to begin with but will be forced to believe in you in the long run after seeing you succeed.

Have a terrific Thursday 💞

Like all things in life, learning to turn negative thoughts into positive ones will take time, but the process itself is really quite simple.

Monday Motivation…..

#mentormonday

#nomorefear

1️⃣Take time to wink 😉at the clouds. It’s very freeing and is an instant ticket to bravery.

2️⃣Let a smile 😄play on your lips. Expectancy centers the feeling of flight and makes us feel radically alive.

3️⃣Quit looking for the glaring holes of logic. Light up the night with warm cheeks. Searching for the perfect reason for everything is suppressing. Step out of your comfort zone. There’s power in excitement!

4️⃣Confirm signs of life in your breaths daily. Cuddle up to your morning yawn, feel the tickles in your ear, count your dimples, let the sun dab behind your ears. There’s more to your life than your fuzzy bedroom slippers and terry cloth robe.

5️⃣Laugh 🤣behind reality’s back and greet your imagination with open arms. Laughing at our thoughts is part of our fearless spirit. It brings out a presence in us that’s awakening.Lean in closely to your feelings. Don’t snub them. Feelings credential us as humans.

6️⃣Our emotions are warm with invitation. They’re the fire that dances in our soul. They’re our sense of place.

7️⃣Life rocks us in the cradle of doubtfulness. Remove fear from your agenda and accept the unknown with a sparkling in your eye.

Happy Monday…😃Smile

Happy Monday friends,

A simple smile can make such a difference. For instance, the other day I mishandled a dish and it fell down on the floor, breaking into bits, producing a big mess.

Now, I could have been furious with myself for being clumsy and thinking “here’s another reason why life is awful!” But I did the opposite. I began to smile and kind of make fun of myself for not being able to hold on to that plate correctly. As I cleaned up the mess, there was no bitterness or anger. As a matter of fact, I did it with a smile on my face…I executed it with peace. So if you find yourself in a similar quandary, just think of the bright side, and don’t be shy to poke fun at yourself. You’ll quickly realize that peace finds its direction much more easily to you when you smile.

So smile today for your peace, for your sanity, and peace of mind😄

When you amply understand that you’ve little control of the outside world, you then have 2 choices: you are able to choose to see yourself as a “poor-me” victim at the mercy of conditions or you are able to choose to develop the trust that, regardless what happens in your life or in the world, you’ll have the inner strength to produce something good from it all. Hopefully, you’ll choose the latter! You got this….💪🏾💖

Sunday/Daily Reminder

#sundayinspiration

#letgo

You really ought to let go of your picture of how you want it all to be. It means letting go of attempting to control things over which you’ve no control. Among the prime causes of our suffering is our wishing for matters to be different than they are. Yes, we all want a peaceful existence rather than a world filled with arms of mass destruction. Yes, we all wish for health rather than illness. Yes, we all wish for healthy, happy youngsters rather than youngsters who break our hearts. But occasionally life doesn’t hand us what we wish. And when we let go of our needing it all to be a particular way, we may breathe a sigh of relief and open the door to a more potent way of living.
