Filter your thoughts.

Untitled design (6)

Your thoughts become your reality. Be aware of what you put in your mind. Be careful of the negative let influence your reality.  Filter these negative thoughts, and do not dwell on them, do not let them imprint your mind. Fill your mind, and life with positivity. Look on the good side and beware of untruths and negative influences. Believe in the good in the world and not the bad. Look for the good in everything to be your best. You can achieve more with a positive mindset.

The act of forgiveness.

Forgiveness sets you free. Free from anger and bitterness that is keeping you from living a fuller life. You can not live life to the fullest if you are weighed down by anger! Forgiveness stops the control that others have on you and your deep inner thoughts. It is a lot of work to be angry. When you realize that this person no longer can control you, and your thoughts because you are angry, this is where freedom comes. Forgiveness is where the saying “Don’t let people get the best of you”, comes into play. Think about it. 

When you are angry at someone for what ever reason, you keep playing in your head what they did. This anger is unproductive, and is weight you down. 

You cannot control what other people do, but you can control how you react. Do not be weighed down by grudges. You don’t carry a burden that is not mean for you to carry. You are not responsible for others actions, so don’t start taking responsibility for what they do. . You do not need to waste your time being angry and seeking revenge. This accomplishes nothing, and is a complete waste of time, while you could be doing something better. 

Do not let the offence happen again, and don’t be quick to trust people. People are not perfect, and people are in fact going to hurt you. We are all human. We are selfish in our innate self. When we are angry we are using our primitive brain, not or evolved brain, which is higher functioning. We are better than this, and capable of more. 

 Have boundaries with people and be assertive. Assertiveness is standing up for your existence. Don’t apologize for being you. Do not let people walk all over you. Don’t take things to personally. 

Set yourself free. Forgive those who have hurt you. Learn, and move on. Use every bad experience to learn from. Think about ways to apply boundaries to not let the offence happen again. Do not let the chains of anger hold you down, and move on to the next best thing. There is higher ground to be climbed in life, than this! 

We can constantly improve. Do not let anger from past offenses keep you back. Forgiveness takes a huge weight off your shoulders. Do not give too much of yourself for people to hurt. You are worth more than this and can do better! There is always room for improvement, and there is always lessons to be learned! 

Actions speak louder than words.

Your beliefs don’t make you a better person, your behavior does.

Don’t let what you say and what you do be two different things.

Integrity is what you do when no one is looking.

Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Willing is not enough; we must do. _ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe.jpg

Apply what you know, and use your gifts and talents. Apply yourself.

Help people.

Always remember to have boundaries and balance. Do not wear yourself out! 🙂

Achieve more. You can achieve more than you think.

Remember to make the most out of what you have.

“Life is not a matter of holding good cards, but of playing a poor hand well.” ~ Robert Louis Stevenson

I love this quote. This quote reminds me that I do not need perfect circumstances in order to achieve my dreams.

You don’t need a certain amount of money to be happy. You don’t need to have perfected skills to get that job, with time comes progress. Keep going, and you will get better.

Do not let things keep you back just because your circumstances aren’t as good as you’d like.  Take the first step. Think you don’t have time for school? Make time, and go part time.

Remember the days of the Great Depression in the 30’s? These people made the most out of what they had. I learned this because my Great Grandma lived until she was 97.

Don’t use excuses from the past. Just keep moving forward. Do not let anything get in your way!

Make the most of what you have now. Do not wait until you have that new car, have enough, or have enough time. You will run out of time with that kind of mindset.

Don’t try to be perfect…

This leads to depression, and possibly giving up. With practice you will get better, and remember no one is perfect.

You don’t have to be perfect in order to achieve. Always be true to yourself, and be your best “you”.

“Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”

― Howard Thurman

 

“The world needs who you were made to be”. Not a “fake you”, worried about being perfect or changing yourself because you are preoccupied with what others think of you. This doesn’t not matter and remember this quote:

“Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter, and those who matter don’t mind.”

― Bernard M. Baruch

Does it matter what people think? Especially if it is negative? Never alter yourself for other people. Have boundaries and live your life to the fullest and be the best “you”. Do your best and forget the rest.

“The greatest prison that people live in is the fear of what other people think” -David Icke

“Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one’s definition of your life; define yourself.” — Harvey Fierstein

I remember a time in my life where I was going through a season of depression. A good family friend of mine told me “not to care what others think”. This was so freeing to me. What good advice my friend.

Which brings me to another quote: “The greatest prison people live in is the fear of what other people think”. David Icke.

Never be afraid of what people think and do not it let you keep you from being yourself.

Never be quiet because someone is criticizing you and bringing you down. Do not apologize for your existence.

Do not let others intimidate you. You have a right to be you.

Do not let what others think of you define you! You know yourself better than anyone else. Always be you.

There is no one like you in the whole wide world. Be true to yourself.

Do not let others negativity bring you down.

Don’t let other people’s negative attitude or mean words get to you. It is just their perspective. Do not feed into others negativity, and let it consume your thoughts. Do not let what others say to you or about you effect you. This is petty, and not worth your thoughts or time.

Life is too short for that, and you will be happier and more productive, if you keep looking on the bright side.

Go about your day without their negativity, and if you can help them, do so.

Cheers, and Happy Holidays!

Do more, and worry less….

“Worrying is like a rocking chair, it give you something to do but it gets you nowhere. ~ Glenn Turner.

Tell yourself not to worry. Instead think of or write down, what you can do about what you are worrying about. 

Worried about finances. Can you work more hours or can you do without something?

Worried about kids? Communicate with them, and think about what you can do to help them.

Worried about your spouse? Communicate with them also, and same thing with your job.

Keep busy. Have you ever noticed that when you are busy you tend to worry less.

Enjoy a hobby. Balance your life with work and fun.

Don’t worry, as if you were sitting in a rocking chair, going back and forth thinking about all the what ifs’.

Write down an action plan and be productive about these worries. Also get to the root cause of your worries.

I’ve struggled with anxiety disorder for almost two decades, so I blog about what has helped me, so in turn I hope I can help others!

Choose to have a positive attitude.

Choose to have a positive attitude today!

You choose your attitude everyday. When bad things happen you can focus on the negative, or you can decide what actions to take to solve the problem. Look on the bright side, and look for the good no matter what! You will be more productive this way.

Don’t feed into and let others negativity influence you. Remember this and you will be more productive and lead a happier life!

Cheers.

Peace, and love!
