You Were Chosen For A Reason 

There is only you, from the entire human race who can help the people you want to help, to achieve the things you want to accomplish, to change the world to how you see it in your mind’s eye.

I say this because out of 9 million sperm you were chosen. You could have been 1 of 9 million people and yet here you are. You have a combination of strengths and weaknesses that are unique what’s more, you’ll possess thoughts and ideas that no one else has.

The only decision that needs to be made is, are you going to take action. Are you going to step-up, chase your dreams and live your life – your way.

Decide what you want and write in down.

What Is The Meaning Of Life?

Today’s is a short post. I came across an unexpected video from an unlikely source – Jim Carrey.

It made me think about life and what I’m striving for, and is it inline with who I am. Invest 4 minutes, give it a watch.

Don’t Stop When You’re Tired. Stop When You’re Done!

Goals – from losing weight to conquering the world, we’ve all set them at some point. At the start we’re fired up and can’t wait to do the work to achieve them.

Then a bad day appears out of the blue or slow progress causes you to lose hope and the goal seems so far away! Motivation takes a nose dive and you’re left feeling like there was no point trying. What’s more you take a look at the super successful with their impressive achievements and wonder how do they do it?

Here’s my 3 top tips to keep the motivation high during your goal achieving journey.

Break The Goals Up

If your goal is to lose 10 pounds, break it down into 10, 1 pound goals. Here’s why; it gives you something more realistic and attainable to focus on. Losing a pound is not going to take months of hard work only days.

And every time you lose a pound you’re one step closer.

Anticipate The Road Bumps

No matter how big or small your goal, not every day will be rosy. There are going to be bad days, accept this and power through them with the mindset that you have one less bad day to finish in order to be successful.

Remember Why You Started

Always have the end in mind. This will drag you through the bad days and compel you to work on those days when you’re craving a duvet day!

The Distance between Dreams and Reality Is Called Action

Napoleon Hill talks about two fundamentals to having everything you want in his best-selling book, Think and Grow Rich, they are; desire and belief.

Desire is knowing what you want.

Belief is knowing you can have whatever it is you want.

Both are easier said than done, but nearly everything is!

I believe there is another key ingredient to success – Action!

Everything you see around you once started as an idea in someone’s mind, including these words you are reading. In order for them to go from my mind to the screen, I had to take action. This is true of any idea.

For an idea to leave the mind and become something we experience action has to be taken. The act can be big or small, what matters is, it gets done.

Make your dreams a reality by taking action.

Desire + Belief + Action = Success

Everyone Must Row With The Oars He Has

We are all born into a world where we have no control over circumstances. When we are young, life happens and we react. If Mum wants to leave you in the high chair while she irons or Dad leaves you in the car while he goes to the shops, there’s nothing you can do about it.

However, as we grow older we develop the ability and awareness to choose. As we become adults the majority of the decisions that impact our life are under our control.

No matter what happens us, we can choose how that experience affects us; positively or negatively?

Decide today to do what you can with what you have – choose your life.

Your Past Does Not Define You

Your past does not make who you are today, it is merely evidence of all you have gone through to get to where you are. Use all the experiences that have happened, learn from them and invest them in today.

Be better today than you were yesterday; it only needs to be by the smallest of margins for you to see a massive impact over time.

We all have greatness within us; all we need to find is the key that unlocks the door. You can become the person you were born to be; I believe in you.

Summary

Short and sweet today but, I believe you will find value in every sentence.

“I want to quit”

Never, never, never give up – Winston Churchill

So you’re having one of those days.

Everything’s going against you. Maybe you had an unexpected bill and won’t be able to invest money in yourself this month.

Or someone on Facebook just quit their job and made you feel like you’re not making progress.

There’ll be bad days when you’ve read 100’s of books and are still making the same mistakes.

The truth is you’ll have good days and bad days on this journey.

You’ll have days where you’re super optimistic and feel there’s a breakthrough just round the corner, as if you need one last piece of the jigsaw.

There’ll be days when everything goes right, you can do no wrong. And they’ll be days when nothing goes right and progress feels like a fight.

But, you’re not alone! Everybody has those days; I’ve had my fair share.

What the journey makes of you is more important than the result. If the journey forces you to quit, what will it have made of you?

Whatever your mind is screaming at you – scream back, I am making progress and I will get there!

“A winner never quits and a quitter never wins” – Vince Lombardi

Summary

No matter what you’re pursing they’ll be good days and bad, the key is to persist until you have what you want.

Make a decision today to keep going UNTIL you have what you want. All obstacles can be overcome just grow yourself bigger than the problem.

Thank you again for reading I really appreciate it. Journall your 3 points of value before leaving.

Have a great day

3 Habits for a Postive Life

Happiness is not by chance, but by choice – Jim Rohn

Happiness is not something we find but something we study. If you want to be happy study happiness.

Here are my 3 favourite habits that anyone can do to have a more positive life.

Avoid the news

If there’s one idea you takeaway from this post and implement into your life, it should be not watching the news. Why is watching the news a bad idea I hear you ask!

Because it’s mainly negative!!

If you don’t believe me make a note of the positive stories the next time you watch. You’ll be hard pressed to find more than 1 let alone 2.

My challenge to you, is turn off the news for the next 30 days! Most people come up with the objection “How will I know what’s happening in the world?” And my response is you won’t….but let me ask you this,why do you need to?

When you know about wars in other countries and crimes in your region, how did you use the information to help the people involved? Let me guess, you don’t. So what’s the point in hearing about the negative stuff if you’re not going to help. Besides, any really big news a friend or family member will tell you.

Avoid the news for the next 30 days and I promise you’ll feel more postive.

Smile! 

This is more simple than avoiding the news. Just smile. It’s as easy as that.

Smile at every single person you meet. No exceptions.

I always feel better when I smile and I know you will too. Plus the more joy you give out the more you receive.

Brighten the lives of the people you meet with a smile 😊

Watch a motivational video

Now you’re probably thinking I don’t want motivating. But trust me a short motivational YouTube clip can give you an extra positive boost that’ll fire you up for the rest of the day.

If you’re still not convinced why not try this out right now.

 

Tell me you don’t feel more positive!

Summary

I hope you’ve got at least 3 points of value from today and you’ve journalled them.

Thanks again for reading and I hope to see you back soon!
