Taking Actions

The number one factor that holds anyone back from succeeding is Not Taking Action. All your plans and visions will not materialize until you make your first step and do it. Although it is easier said than done, but vision without action is a daydreaming.

“Take the first step in faith. You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.” – Martin Luther King Jr.

“A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” – Lao-tzu

When you take action, ….

You are half way to your goal

– Familiar with the phrase “Well Begun Is Half Done”? It is basically true. Taking the first step is perhaps the hardest thing to do in achieving a dream. But once you made your first step, the rest is history. You will surely encounter some mental obstacles that make it difficult to take that first step. You read it right, it is just Mental Obstacles. It’s all in your mind only. You will certainly overcome these mental obstacles as you travel your journey.

Your confidence increases

–  Not all of us have the guts to take action. It is indeed a mile stone if you took the first step. You are now one of those people who bravely face any obstacles (or excuses) and your confidence will surely increase.

Commitment increases

– Once you took the first step, turning back is not an option. You have started the job so you want to finish it as scheduled. There will be some issues you may encounter along the way but those things should not stop you. Your desire to succeed should grow stronger as you progress.

You will surely learn new things

– As mentioned above, there will be some obstacles as you progress and it will lead you to other opportunity to learn. You might commit some mistakes along the way and fail. However, it will serve as your learning opportunity thus bringing you closer to your goal.

Most people often choose to abandon their dream and afraid to take action. Take action now and ensure that when the year comes to an end, you’re celebrating the accomplishment of your goals, rather than regretting what hasn’t happened but not doing so.

Wishing you Abundance and Success,


Effectiveness of Affirmation

The words that you usually use are very powerful things for our personal development. However, most of us go through life without ever realizing this very important fact. Using the right words or affirmations is proven methods of self-improvement because of their ability to rewire our brains.

Just like habits, when affirmations are repeated over and over again, they become rooted in your brain. By playing with words you can condition your mind to think in a certain way. During this process, it pushes the subconscious mind to take action and to strive to make the positive statement in to a reality. When you know how to use affirmations the right way, you get a great tool for reaching the life you truly deserved.

Affirmations are easy to create and very simple to put into use. But please be aware that affirmations work at both ways, to build or destroy you. It is the way we use them that determines whether they are going to help us towards our dreams or away from it. You might already used (or continuously using) a negative affirmations without knowing it. I assumed that you already said the words “This life sucks!!!” or “I am not good in doing those things” or “I can not achieve my dreams since I am just ba bla ba bla”. These phrases are already affirmations that are in your system. Your subconscious mind accepts as true what you keep saying. Whether you say it out laud or in your mind only, it attracts corresponding events and situations into your life.

How to pick the right affirmations? There are really no rules or proper procedures that you can follow. It really depends on your personal wishes and needs. If you’re lost and don’t know where to start, you can take these things into consideration:

Always positive
– Think about your positive attributes and focus on them. Most of the time, we choose to dwell on things we’d like to change rather than on those things that we really like about ourselves. Always focus on positive things. As I mentioned above, affirmations work at both ways. It will build or destroy you. So why choose negative affirmations?

I am courageous and I stand up for myself.
My thoughts are filled with positivity and creativity.
I acknowledge my own self-worth; my confidence is soaring.
Use present tense
– If you choose an affirmation in the future tense, you are just setting your dreams for a far future. Keep your affirmations in the present tense, as in now, right this very moment. With this, you are making a definite claim over it.

Today, I abandon my old habits and take up new, more positive ones.
I am brimming with energy and overflowing with joy now.
I wake up today with strength in my heart and clarity in my mind.

Be straight forward
– Be certain and specific with what your heart desire. It should be straight to the point and do not beat around the bush. Your affirmations should be specific and should target what you want, not what you don’t want. The more specific you are the more clear your directions to the subconscious mind become. With clear instructions your subconscious has a clear understanding of what you want and can go about creating the situations and opportunities that reflect your affirmations more easily.
