If we believe the world to be a negative place - it will be. If we believe the world to be a positive place - it will be. However we perceive the world to be - it will be. This shows that our world is merely a reflection of our perception.
When things get challenging in life, the challenges have the propensity to bring us down and make us feel like we are defeated. However this is just an illusion because we do actually have the power within us to rise above whatever might be bringing us down. Learning to view challenges as opportunities to grow means that we can see them as opportunities to "make us" rather than "break us". Challenges give us the opportunity to make us stronger and more resilient and learning to view challenges in this way is empowering and a strengthening.
Meditation has been scientifically proven in to relieve anxiety and depression. It helps to alleviate stress and bring about feelings of well-being and peace. Meditation is a "free" way to achieve feelings of well-being and calm. The earlier we learn to meditate the sooner we experience the benefits of it. Meditation is a wonderful way to bring about the feelings of peace that already reside inside of us.
We constantly put ourselves under pressure to get this done, get that done. By living this way it causes stress stress in our mind and body that stops us from living in the moment and enjoying life. Sometimes it is important just to kick back relax and to enjoy our surroundings – all else can wait!
When I was considering making some profound changes in my life I stumbled across this poem. Somehow reading the words gave me the courage to make some positive changes and as a result I have never looked back. I hope the words resonate with you as much as they did with me.
Repeating positive statements in our minds has been proven to create new neurological pathways. Thinking positive thoughts also adjusts our chemical reactions in our body and automatically lifts us. I found this positive thought below and wanted to share!
The healing journey is a process. One that we keep putting one foot in front of the other - peeling away the layers of the onion until we reach a place of inner contentment and peace. Keep going you are heading in the right direction.
As children we don't listen to what our parents say, we watch and listen to what our parents do. We model ourselves on our parents beliefs and behaviour patterns thus forming the way we view the world. Our children walk in our footsteps so it is worth making sure that the footsteps we walk are good ones – for them.
I always find the most beautiful and magnetic people that I have ever met are the people that have a kind and loving soul. In this day and age we strive for beauty and perfection of the Hollywood screen. However this is empty, it has no substance. True beauty comes from a person who is honest, compassionate and kind. Those qualities create an inner glow that shine from inside out.
The way we see things in life is merely a perception. When we change our perception, what we experience in life changes too. I love this quote by Dr Wayne Dyer "when you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change". This is powerful because it implies that the life we desire to live is available to us by a merely a shift in perception.
Success truly is available to every single one of us. Some people sit there and dream about success but don't take any action. Some people dream about success and take action! The latter of the two is more likely to reach his or her goals and achieve a life that they really enjoy living. What action can you take today that can help you achieve your dreams?
Life has an amazing and unique way of helping us connect to deeper love and fulfillment in all that we do. When life gives us lemons, we learn to make lemonade and see that life's challenges are a way to "make us" instead of "break is".
We all have our own unique talents and abilities to offer this world. There is no use trying to be someone else when who we are is perfect and beautiful. The world needs us in our own way, in our uniqueness and showing up in our full authenticity. Then we are true gift to the world. "Be who you are because you are is beautiful".
Many people prefer to stay in a "safe place" in life. However this so-called "safe place" doesn't light up the fire in their soul but rather keep them stuck in a Groundhog Day existence. Believe that it can happen, and it will happen! Remember "what man can perceive man can achieve". Build your dream, make it happen and shock everyone.
I truly believe that success (whatever success means for you) is available to absolutely everybody! As Albert Einstein said "a problem cannot be solved at the level it was created". This means that we need to learn new information to help us view challenges in a different way, in order to solve them. Learning how to put a strategy and system in place it one of the keys to creating success and that is why having a coach can be so very valuable in helping us reach our goals.
Criticism breaks down the inner spirit. Praise builds it up. Praise yourself as much as you can. Tell yourself how well you are doing with every little thing.
