The Power of Habit

habitHabit is a routine of behavior that is repeated regularly. Most of the time, habit occurs unconsciously and automatic. It is essential to align your habit towards your goals. You also need to easily detects those habits that are not necessary to your life and can serve as chain ball only.

I found a poem from a particular forum and it got my attention. The poem speaks to the importance of habits and how a habit can affects your life both in good and bad ways. I tried to google and look for the real author. I found some but it did not says that he is indeed the author. I even failed to confirm the correct title of the poem. Anyway, here it is and I hope you will enjoy it as much as I did.

You may know me.
I’m your constant companion.
I’m your greatest helper; I’m your heaviest burden.
I will push you onward or drag you down to failure.
I am at your command.
Half the tasks you do might as well be turned over to me. I’m
able to do them quickly, and I’m able to do them the same every
time, if that’s what you want.

I’m easily managed; all you’ve got to do is be firm with me.
Show me exactly how you want it done; after a few lessons I’ll do
it automatically.
I am the servant of all great men and women; of course,
I’m the servant of all the failures as well.
I’ve made all the winners who have ever lived.
And, I’ve made all the losers too.

But I work with all the precision of a marvelous computer
with the intelligence of a human being.
You may run me for profit, or you may run me to ruin;
it makes no difference to me.

Take me. Be easy with me, and I will destroy you.
Be firm with me, and I’ll put the world at your feet.
Who am I?

I’m Habit!

 

If you are dead serious in achieving your goals, you must change your habits and ensure that those habits are towards your goals. Old habits are hard to break since you are already used to it. They already run in to your veins and worked automatically. That’s because the behavioral patterns we repeat most often are literally etched into our neural pathways. Likewise with new habits. New habits are also hard to form but it is still possible through repetition. Just like how you form your old habits… by repetitions. Make sense??

How to Stay Motivated

As per wikipedia, Motivation is a theoretical construct used to explain behavior. It represents the reasons for people’s actions, desires, and needs. Motivation can also be defined as one’s direction to behavior or what causes a person to want to repeat a behavior and vice versa.

Motivation is being used a lot and it is indeed important to our lives. It is the reason why we stay focus on a particular goal and pursue it no matter what. Many believe that motivation often comes from somewhere else (a third party, experiences and many more). It could be a friend, love one or a family member who keeps on pushing you to do more and push your limit. It could be mentors or a life coach, helping you push forward into greatness.

Mentioned above are effective motivational sources but they can be temporary. You need to learn how to do it without external factors and achieve the desired level of motivation on your own accord. You have to be motivated at all times. Once you notice and begin to understand how important motivation is, you will strive to use it in many aspects of your life. When you are off track towards your goal and feel stuck, you will need to find the right energy to see things through to move forward and continue your journey. By channeling the right motivation, you will suddenly be able to do things sometimes your are not aware that you are capable of.

Tips that can help you to Stay Motivated.

Believe in Yourself

BelieveThis is your life, your own journey. A life coach can certainly help you but they are not always at your side. You can receive good advise from them bit it’s you alone who need to execute what you learn from them. Maybe you have fears that are controlling you and running at the back of your mind. They might be your limiting beliefs that holding you back. Maybe you are becoming a strong critic of yourself and you have already succeeded in discouraging your own self. Believing to yourself and to your God’s gift skill sets will surely fire up your motivation.

 

Talk to yourself

talk to yourselfTalk to yourself as you would talk to other people. Speak as though you are giving advice to someone, and be honest about what you think. You know yourself well and you know your strengths and weaknesses.
What is it that you want to achieve? Be specific with it. It is important that you know what you want and always follow one direction of movement and that is moving towards your goal (not the other way around). If you lose your way, just pick yourself up again, and move on.

 

Find an inspiration

inspirationThese may be people and events from which you can gain good perspective from. Choose to be with people who are positive and can bring the best out of you. It is nice if you are able to surround yourself with these kinds of personalities because they are positive influences. You should choose people who share your passion and who can influence you to be better.

Learn new to things

learnDo not get tired of learning. There are many ways that will help you feel good about yourself and knowledge is one. Learn how to upgrade your self and develop new skill sets. Knowledge is power and when you are able to make good use of it, you will find that you will be stronger to achieve all kinds of things in your life.

 

 

Practice Gratitude

gratitudeGratitude helps us see our situation in a way that can lessen panic, and could open up our thinking to new solutions. Instead of focusing on the things that bring you down, why not look at the bright side of things and focus on what you have done well and have achieved. Surely, there is a silver lining for every event or situation. It is discomforting to have to look at mistakes, failures and errors, so why should you focus on that?

 

Visualize that you already achieved your goal

visualize

– When you are able to see yourself at the end zone and experiencing success, it makes everything seem attainable. Just like the old sayings: What your mind can conceive, you body can achieve.

 

 

 

That’s all for today.

Maintaining a life of GRATITUDE

As we go on to our daily life journey, there is indeed certain thing that is truly out of our control. Most of the time, those things can suck out all positive energy within us. It is normal to look around and complain about what you do not have that others do. However, you cannot solely focus on the things you lack. Your life may not be in any way perfect but it is not a total failure compare to others who are really in lack of everything.

gratitude1

Is it nice to think that you have a bed where you can sleep comfortable while others sleep along the cold streets? It is nice to have potable water running out from your faucet while others don’t? How about a job that you currently have while there are millions of other who are unemployed for several years? The problem with other people is that they focus too much on the negative or to those they do not have. They forget and neglect to thank the heavens for the good things they have in their life. No matter how bad your life is going right now, you surely can find something to be grateful for.

gratitude

If only all humans know how grateful we are in any aspects of our live, this world is a perfect place to live in. We need to practice the attitude of gratitude. Gratitude is more than just saying thank you. It is recognizing and realizing what you have and how good it is. It is about gaining satisfaction over the things that you have in your life no matter how simple it is. Focus on good things and be happy that you have done right.

It is not easy to look up and think of anything worth thanking for when you are in a state negativity. It is definitely going to be a struggle but you have to learn to break through the pain. Your life is a series of events and you have to understand how important it is to be grateful for both the good and the bad. The bad things happen for a reason and you have to come to terms with this truth so that you can turn your bad situation into something worth celebrating over. There is a silver lining for it and I am certain with that. Most of the time, bad instances will build your character and make you strong in the long run.

So, how to mitigate negativity and attain attitude of gratitude?

Make your personalize Gratitude Journal
– You can use a simple notebook where in you can write all the things that you ought to be grateful for. No matter how simple it is like; the unforgettable dinner date you have with your partner/friends, the recent tourist spot you visited during your vacation or even how your dog wake you up in the morning. You can choose to take account any simple good things and keep a notebook that you can refer to, from time to time. Especially when you are feeling down due to some instances. Just try to read your gratitude journal and you will feel energize again.

Create your own Mantra
– Every time someone or an event that cause you to shift you from being positive to negative state, recite your personal Mantra. A mantra or chant that will help you to go back to being positive again. Let me provide a good example.
God/Angels/Universe, please create an invisible field around me that will deflect all negative vibes and only absorbs positive one.

I usually do this when I am riding a cab and stuck on a heavy traffic. Most of the time, the driver will says how frustrated he is on the ongoing traffic. I usually recite my example mantra (in my mind only) and it helps me not to absorb the negative energy of the driver. You can create your own mantra and make it longer if you want.

Make your morning and evening ritual
– At morning, just before your take off from your bed, you should count all the things that you should be grateful for. Imagine all things that can happen to you all day and focus on those good things the whole day. At night before you lay down, think again for all the small things you received or experience that day and imagine how you fell. Imagine that as if it is happening again. Instead of spending your last waking hours, counting sheep, why not spend time to count your blessings instead. You should count all the things that you should be grateful for and start a habit of doing this every day and every night. Sooner or later your way of thinking for any situation will change.

Assigned a Gratitude buddy
– If you’re married, the best buddy will be your husband/wife. He/she should know your quest and he/she should help you exercise more gratefulness into your life. If your partner needs to twist your arm just for you to go back to good vibes, let him/her do it. If you have forgotten your gratitude quest, you should allow them to remind you. You can do the same if your buddy is also out of track.

Appreciate others
– If you are appreciative to others no matter how small they did for your, you will also pass the gratitude to them. Did you remember the feelings when someone appreciated what you do? It feels good right? People exist for one another and we need to express our thankfulness for having them around. When you realize how important the people are in your life, you will begin to appreciate their existence and your existence as well.

Always put a smile on your face
– If you have a smile on your face, you will be able to spread your good vibe or positive emotions to other people, and they will learn to be grateful and happy, as well. This is a win-win situation where everyone is experiencing good feelings.

Pay it forward
– A good way to show gratefulness would be to pass it on to others. If you are truly grateful and happy for what you have in your life, you should share the blessings you have by paying it forward. If someone has helped you and has done a magnificent difference in your life, you should endeavor to be a gift to someone else too. If you are familiar of “the Law of giving and receiving”, this is the best example of it.

Bottom line, you should relish everything that you have and focus on good things no matter how small they are. This is the main teaching of “Law of Attraction”. If you work hard on attracting something and you make it a part of your daily life, then it becomes you. By maintaining a life of gratitude, you embrace positivity that can attract all the good things that you deserve. Soon enough, your life will be just as you want it to be. The life your truly deserve.

How to Embrace CHANGE

The first thing that comes to my mind when I heard the word change is this phrase:

“The Only Thing That Is Constant Is Change”

People have different reasons for wanting change and experience a better life. Perhaps you might be in this situation as you read this post. Change might come from external or it’s you who initiated the change. Change is normal and it is part of one’s existence. There are changes that result to good things and the other way around. Either way, these changes can affect your life, so you need to know how to deal with it.

change

Change is part of our life. From the moment you were born, you were already destined to meet different changes. It is a fact and it happens whether you like it or not. It is important to know how to deal with these changes and look for a silver lining. There is no point in fearing change. Changes happen for a reason and you just have to find a way to positively deal with the things that happen in your life.

Most of the time, we want to change to improve our life. We all come to the point wherein we think that we deserve something more. It is not being discontent. It is just that we realize we can achieve more and deserve more compare to what we currently have. Change begins when you assert yourself and begin to want more and be more.

As mentioned above, change might come from external or You initiated the change by yourself. How to Make a Change for a better it was initiated by YOU? Below are tips that you can use.

Be specific with what you want
– There should be a reason behind why you want to change and you should determine why you want to do it. Knowing what you want to do will boost your motivation and help you to achieve your goal. Don’t be afraid to commit mistakes since it will serve as your learning opportunities and it will surely guide you to what you dreamed of.

Create a Solid Blueprint
– “Planning without a plan is planning to fail”. A plan will dictate the course of your life and it will outline the journey that you will take. Making a change and turning your life around is not easy, but if you have a plan you will have a stronger foundation for your goals and the journey will be easy.

Overcome Laziness and Take action
– Some people are lazy because they do not want to act on their dreams and they refuse to go out of their comfort zones. Just always put in your mind that Life is a choice. If you choose to just sit there, then by all means do it, but do not complain and blame other people with your current situation. It is you who decide for your life. If you want a better life, you should choose to do something about it and you should not waste any time. You have to focus your attention to it and start working hard. You have to start on your way and you should keep your mind at it even if the conditions get rough, even if it seems rather impossible. Just do it and take action. Taking the first step is already halfway.

Don’t do it alone
– “No man is an island”. Go out and network with different kind of peoples who can help you to reach your goals. Only a few people understand the important of networking but if you want to be great in life in general, this is something you have to do. Doing the impossible and conquering the unknown is going to be hard. Go and ask for help from people who can bring the best out of your and will support you all the way to success. Do not be timid to tell them about it and absorb all good advice they can offer.

Visualize Success
– When you want to change and achieve something, you have to picture it in your head. The search for success is going to be a long and arduous journey, but you have to believe that it can be yours, as long as you have the right attitude and passion for it. Many have dreamed and only a few people ever got to taste it on their lips, but you can make it your reality. Visualize it as if you already achieved the changed you want and the success you truly deserve.

In the event that the change come from an external force (a third party or instances), you need to analyze the things that you need to change and how to deal with it. The following are some strategies that will help make things easier for you:

Anticipate the change
– It happens all the time and in random from out of nowhere. The world is continuously evolving and so will you and your life. Expect and accept that these things happen because the best way for you to deal with them will be to expect them to happen. Prepare for it so it will not surprise you, as much.

Do not control the change
– You have to understand that these changes happen for a reason. Let it happen and let the universe unfold it for you even without seeing the whole stair ways at first. Who knows, things may result to something great; and if it does not, then believe that you will find a way to deal with it.

Look for the Silver Linings
– Some changes can give a great impact on one person’s life. It may be for good or for bad but you need to focus your attentions to good things. You can effectively deal these changes them by trying to see things from a different perspective. There is certainly a reason for everything and do hope for a good one.

Take the change as a challenge
– As human, we have a natural coping mechanism and in order for you to survive through these changes, you will need to learn how to designate definite countermeasures that will help you deal with them. Learn how to cope with it and challenge yourself. You will certainly gain new skill sets along the way.

Change is always present in our life journey. Just face it with all your heart and hope for the best. Many people are afraid to accept any change or responsibilities. They are reluctant to spread their wings because they are not well aware of what they can do and what they can really achieve. You are so much more than what you think and you have to start believing in your true potential. Use the talent or skill sets you have and you can shine just as any star in the sky at night. Many people are limited to their existence because they have put themselves in a box and have restricted themselves to grow. Get out from your comport zone and embrace change. Before you can know, success is just inches away.

If you fail to PLAN, you are planning to FAIL

ben failing to planThis is my follow up post regarding “Create your own Blueprint”. PLAN is another factor to consider if you want to be successful in whatever career or business that you are into. Without the plan, you may simply fail. For me, these words are almost perfectly correct. If you want to become successful in anything, you have to have a plan. Right?

Majority of the population (count me in BEFORE) leaves its faith to what many call LUCK. It’s a sad reality but it happens in real life. Yes I agree that there is really such thing as luck or lucky person and miracles do happen. However, please don’t just sit there and do nothing. You must do something towards your goals. Gold’s will not just drop in front of you from out of no where. You need to dig it. And how to dig? That’s where the PLAN should take place.

Most success and achievement come to those planners who know what they want and what they need to do. Do your self a favor and grab a pen and paper. Write down your plan or blueprint. Make it Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic and Time-oriented. Write down a plan, calendar your desire, calendar your activities, list the persons who you think can help you out. Make a time-table. Write down and then delete all unnecessary activities that have been holding you back.

The plan is where you put both your short- and long-term goals. Don’t make other people steal the quality of life that you desire by a simple act of negligence. Be perfectly aware of what you want to achieve. Be specific as to when you plan to get it. If that’s money, put into your paper the exact amount. If it’s promotion in your job, write it down.

Start controlling your life by having a plan of your own. Create your own blueprint for success and see how far you can go from where you are now. Your plan will give you the drive and the reason to achieve and fulfill something for your self, for your family, for your community, and for your country.

failing to plan

Just always keep in mind that you need to develop one goal at a time. Although many of your goals will be interdependent, isolating each goal during the planning process will ensure that each meets the specific tests necessary to reach well-defined goals.

Create your own Blueprint

Each and every one of us has our own free will. We can do anything what we want and design our own Blueprint. We have a unique ability to design our own lives and change it for better or even for the best. You need to plan and control your life or somebody else will. You have a life of your own and God provided you the talent that you can use to become successful in any field you like.

If you really want to become successful, the first thing you need to know about success is that it’s an inside job. Success comes from within, learning how to be successful in life is not an easy task but if you have the courage to look at yourself for who you really are, it’s a piece of cake my friend and you are already half way there.

Blue Print

Weather you are planning to build a business (online or offline), a nice corporate career, looking for a good relationship and etc…, you need to have a Blueprint or a solid plan. This will allow you to brace your self to all the difficulties you may encounter along the way and you need to take ACTION. I mean ACTION…..

 

 

Most people will say someday I’ll do this or someday I will become successful but to be honest, that someday never happens unless you are willing to make some changes, design your Blue Print and put it in ACTION.

This blog is part of my blue print and one step at a time; I know I will become successful too on my online journey. This is the Internet age where in most of the business is made with Internet as a medium. We’re now living in a world where information has become more important than anything else. The problem with that is information can only spark an imagination but it rarely translates itself to the so-called success.

In creating your Blue Print during this information age, you need to act fast enough since Information changes from time to time and exponentially. You must also examine who you choose to surround yourself with and find yourself a mentor who is already successful in life and who is willing to help you become more successful. You will subconsciously pick up their winning thoughts, beliefs, and attitude which will in turn help you become more successful person. This is an example of how the Law of Attraction works. If you are surrounded by a positive thinker person, you will also pick up their winning thoughts and you will also attracts all the good energy that you deserves. Again, being positive thinker is not enough. Positive person and a doer work together well.

 

Keep in mind that you are not a rock. If you’re born in poverty, you can always choose to do something about it and turn the wheel upside down. I assumed that you know some people who started from scratch and become successful in life. Rags to riches type of story. They didn’t have anything but their dreams and within their lifetime they were able to turn their lives around. Difficulties or poverty is a state of mind. It’s not really a circumstance. It becomes a circumstance only when we accept it to be and do nothing about it.

In addition, you are the driver of your own car. You decide where you intend to go. If you want to succeed, you can either do it now, delay it for a day, for a week, or even for a year. You can delay it for a lifetime if you want. Your decision to take your life to a higher level one step at a time is so powerful that it can either amaze or disappoint you.

Lastly, be the miracle and don’t wait for it… Be it. Be the miracle you desire. “Be The Miracle” is a phrase from the movie “Bruce Almighty” and I really love this movie.  Below is the exact line from that movie.

“Parting a soup is not a miracle, Bruce. It’s a magic trick. Now, a single mom who works two full-time jobs, and still finds the time to pick up her kid at soccer practice, that’s a miracle. A teenager that says “no” to drugs and “yes” to an education, that’s a miracle. You want to see a miracle, son? Be the miracle. “

You want to see a miracle my friend? Be the Miracle. Think about what a powerful statement that is. Going back…. Many people have been looking for miracles to happen–to win in a lottery or a game show–and they thought that’s the answer to their prayers. Miracle is in you my friend. With God giving you almost everything you need–skills, talents, family, friends, and technology–you can create miracles in your life.

We’re now living perhaps in the most exciting (and most of the time seemingly complicated) time in human history and you should create a Blueprint that will lead you to success.

Wishing you Abundance and Success,

Abraham Sig

 

 

Facing the Giants along my life Journey

I want to share a video clip from the movie “Facing the Giants”. It really struck me in such a powerful way and I want to share this video clip to you and I knew this is worth sharing. I found this video from YouTube several years ago when I tried to search for some motivational video. Actually, I seen the full lent of this movie but this scene is my favorite. The movie itself is very inspiring.

If only each one of us can push our limit and use our God’s gift talent/skill sets (blind folded or not) and without thinking all the difficulties in our path, we can surely reach the end zone (goals / dreams).

I really enjoy watching inspirational or motivational movies or video clips. It really helps me to think positive again and move forward even if there are difficulties along my way. For me, watching motivational videos or reading motivational books/quotes is a must. As Mr. Zig Ziglar says:

Enjoy!!!

Take Risk to Achieve Success

Comfort+Zone+pic

It’s a human instinct to be in a safe zone rather than to be lost in an unknown world. It does not matter if it is physical, emotional or mental kind of comfort that is in question, people will always choose to be within what is normal for them, instead of going out of the box and taking risks.

To be honest, being safe is good because it keeps things in perfect order. Being in a comport zone keeps you from making mistakes and putting yourself in danger, but while being safe is easily the best decision to go, it is not exactly the right way to go. I am on this state for almost my whole life until recently I discovered my full potential and managed to think out of the box.

Comfort-Zone-Quotes

There is something good about choosing to be brave and stretching yourself. In this way, you can see your full potential and gain a new appreciation of yourself. There are such things as calculated risks and if you are careful, these risks will not be risks at all. It is taking a risk that can lead to a fortunate gain; and it is a risk that will always be worth taking. By taking risks, you will begin to feel stronger. Every time you succeed to accomplish one task, you will see yourself grow.

Below are some benefits you will achieve if you think out of the box:

More opportunities will unfold
– There is only so much that you can see from a single standing point, but you will realize just how much is out there when you finally open yourself up and get exposed. When you get out of the box, you open yourself to a lot of risks, but at the same time you open yourself to great opportunities that you may not be aware of before.

Inspire other people
-Not a lot of people get the right courage to be bold and be courageous. When you take that risky step outside of your comfort zone and achieve to show just how beneficial choosing boldness could be, you get to touch other people’s lives who may be struggling on their own, and inspire them to be bold and courageous, too, like yourself.

Become stronger
– You will become stronger because when you go out there you get to face more challenges and these challenges will make you stronger. You will be more in tune to your true capacity. If you used be afraid to take risks, you will now feel that you have more power to do anything that you put your mind to doing.

Learning Opportunities
– When you go out of your comfort zone, you will encounter different things, out there and you may make mistakes but ultimately you will learn so much more, compared to when you keep yourself confined in a box.

More focus on the end result
-You are no longer confined to what is usual. You are no longer restricted and kept from doing things. When you go outside the box, you become focused not on the boundaries, but on the results and the way in which you can achieve it.

I also would like to share an animation / video from YouTube explaining further the benefits of getting out of your comfort zone. I hope you will enjoy it as much as I do. I still watch this video once in a while and even re-post it / share it on my Facebook account 😉

How to Maintain Positive Mindset

 

hands up sut set

Positive thinking is one of a well-known strategy that many successful individual used to improve the quality of life, attract what they want and creating happiness. Unfortunately, not everyone is able to learn and understand the importance of staying positive.

Have you noticed someone who always complains about almost everything is less happy and less fulfilled in their life? These individuals become quickly frustrated by the inevitable stress, changes and challenges they experience.. It may be your colleagues, friends, relatives or even you. You might not be aware that you are one of those people who always spoil someone’s good mood.

It is true that developing the habit of positive mindset does not happen overnight. No supplement/medicine that you can take and change your way of thinking in just a blink of an eye. Especially if you grew up in an environment where in negative is all around and you are not even aware since it is just part of your daily life. Maintaining a positive mindset is a process that you need to regularly form and manifest in order to develop a habit, a pattern that you consistently do.

Staying in a positive mindset helps to allow the mind to focus on strengths and accomplishments, rather than weaknesses and setbacks, which increases happiness and motivation – which improves results and circumstances. Then opens the mind to opportunity and allows more potential for making progress – leaving less time for feeling down and stuck. There is no need to consult a professional to turn yourself into a person with positive mindset.

You can manage to develop your own thinking patterns with a few simple tips.

Practice the Attitude of Gratitude. (Make it a Habit)
– The power of gratitude is 100% true. What you choose to focus on expands and manifest. A simple “Thank You” in the morning will help you attract good things the rest of the day if you maintain that good feeling. Waking up every morning is a blessing that you need to be thankful for. This is just one of example that you can practice the Attitude of Gratitude. How about being grateful for the break fast your parents / wife prepared for your? Being grateful for having a dog that licks your face to wake you up? Being grateful for the sun rise / sun set? Or almost everything around you. You see? There are several things to be grateful for.

If you focus on things to be grateful for in your life no matter how small it is, you will surely feel great and at ease. With this, you will maintain that felling the whole day and surely attracts good things on to your life. If you’re a Law of Attraction fan, I’m sure you may have heard of the power of gratitude before.

Avoid Negative Words / Phrases. (Use simple positive affirmations instead)
– Using negative words or terms. Below are some sample statements expressing negative thinking and alternative ways of delivering it in an affirmative manner:

Negative: I can’t make it.
Positive: I will give it another try and do my best to win the next time around.

Negative: I can’t do anything about it anymore.
Positive: There will always be a way to solve it.

Mistakes / failures are always present in our life. But don’t focus on them. Or better, don’t call them as “Mistakes” and “Failures”. You can call them as “LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES”. Calling them as Learning Opportunities will help you to shift your mind to a positive side and it will push your self to move forward.

Connect with Positive Person and eat their brains like zombies. please don’t take this literally ; )
– Connecting with like minded positive people is essential and it will certainly help you maintain your positive mindset. Being around with these kinds of people will reduce loneliness and increase self-esteem. Think of someone or a group of people who you know who has a positive outlook in life. Take them as your example in developing a positive aura. Looking up to someone as a role model can easily guide you in molding your thinking patterns as well as your actions. Surround yourself with healthy, happy people, and their positive energy will affect you in a positive way.

Lend a hand to someone in need
– It is a guaranteed happiness booster. Can you remember someone you helped in the past and imagine how they say “thank you” to you with a smile on their face? It really feels good right? You can volunteer your time, your resources, knowledge, talents or just make it a habit to help someone everyday. The more positive energy you put out into the world, the more you will receive in return. If you maintain that good feeling each day, you will be always in good vibrations and attract good things to you life.

Look for the Silver Lining (once found, focus on it)
– Always remember that anything happens for a reason and it is in a Good Way. Focus on the brighter side of a negative experience. What WAS, is DONE. There is no sense to dwell further on what cannot be undo. That way, you are shifting your mindset to a more positive outlook and you are teaching yourself how to inject hope to a rather unpromising or gloomy situation. Again, this is another “LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES”.

Schedule a ME Time (Love your self)
– Go treat yourself for a relaxing massage, watch a movie, walk in a park to relax, make nature your best friend, eat well, exercise, meditate and sleep well.

How to attain bigger chance of success

Like many people, I’m keenly interested in self-improvement and achieving success. It is pretty obvious why I choose livewithsuccess.com for this blog. I’ve been longing to build a blog like this several years ago but just like any other decisions to make, procrastination is the number one that hinders me to push myself and put it in to action. What should I blog about, I might just waste my time and efforts, I am not a good writer, what if it will not work, what if I failed to pump traffic to my blog, what if I run out of topics to write and many other “WHAT IF’s”.

Until one day I realized that I need to do this and follow that little voice inside me. I still can’t understand it even up to this very moment. What I know for sure is I need to make the first step even though the path is not clear enough. Just like the sayings:

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

I am not aiming to become a personal development guru or a life coach. What I just want to do is to share something about self-improvement niche and how my life changed when I change the way I think. No, I am not a Law of Attraction expert but I know that it really works since I experienced it myself. Like many others, I work hard to improve life on a daily basis.  Even though I believe in The Law of Attaction and already developed a few positive habits, I still have miles to go.

“I’m a work in progress – I’m not there yet – I’m just not where I used to be”

We all deserve to be successful but some people are afraid of success because they think that it is only meant for a selected few. I have that thinking before and I thank God it is no longer in my system. Success is a choice and it can be achieved by anyone. If you have the right attitude, success can easily be yours. You have to be aware of all the limiting beliefs that were embedded to your system when you are young, eliminate them, and reprogram your mind by changing the way you think.

Change Your Thoughts – Change Your Life

It is very important in an early stage that you know that changing your thoughts alone will not work. It is not that “all you have to do is think positively and everything in your life will be great”. This is the miss interpretation of the Law of Attraction by many people. It doesn’t work that way my friend.

If you want to achieve success, give yourself a bigger chance by:

Doing what you really want

  • Having a clear vision of what you really want and passion in life is a must. It should be what you love and NOT what others want you to do. Look at the mirror and ask yourself what you want to achieve. What do you really want to happen to your life? You have to work very hard whatever it is you choose to do. Fulfillment will mean so much more because it is more personal and definitely straight to the heart.

 Planning

  • It’s your blueprint for success. Your plan describes how you can reach each step from where you are, or where you will be. Having a plan means you can avoid long detours that might compromise your chances of reaching your dreams. Writing a plan strengthens your journey and it will help you to push your limits. It also gives you a sense of purpose and formidable reason.

Taking action

  • It’s good to have a plan but it is just a plan and it won’t do anything to you unless you take it in to action. It does not really matter how good your plan is. Your good ideas are good for nothing unless you take action.

Staying focused

  • Focused on your end goal no matter what and have more fear of regret than failure. Sometimes, things might not work out exactly how you plan it. You can still change your plan and make some detours but never ever change your end goal. Or worst, don’t ever give up and forget what you are aiming. Don’t forget what you really want in life. Once you start going, just keep going and don’t give up. The only way to really fail is to give up and forget your dreams. You will surely encounter some obstacles along your journey but you can chip away at it, go around it or make detour. You can certainly regroup and find another way towards your end goal. If one of your plans failed, dust yourself off, look for the silver lining (learn from your mistakes), make another plan, take massive action, just keep going and stay focused.

Believing in yourself

  • Believe in yourself that you can do anything. Use your God given talents / skill sets and believe on them. You have to believe in your power to do things and make things happen. Even if everything seems impossible due to several challenges along the way, just think that those challenges are cleverly disguised opportunities for growth. Believe in yourself and to your talents that you can overcome them. You have to believe that you are powerful enough to see things through and no amount of trouble can ever shake you or discourage you from getting what you really deserve.

Always be grateful

  • Be grateful on what you currently have and enjoy it. Appreciate what you’ve achieved so far, and see that what you want, where you’re going. Not what you don’t have, not what your need or not what you must do. If you appreciate all the things you currently have, you will experience a good feeling, contentment and inner joy. Eventually you will attract more positive things and better situation. With this feeling, you are now removing all negating things from your mind and you are now changing your thoughts and it will lead in changing your circumstances for the better.
