Comfort Zone…Get Out Of It !

If you want your Life to have a meaning and purpose, you must first value your life… Start Today!

Each one of us is born to be a world-class champion in a particular field of endeavour. We are bound to find that particular field.

But, by doing the same things everyday, you cannot expect to deliver new and better results! Right? You need to bring about a Change in what you do and how you do things. You must transform the way you live your life!

Changing the way you live you life means changing the way you think. Changing how you think means changing what you have come to believe or accept about your life. This is something that is very hard, so hard that even when you so desperately want to change, you prefer to hang on to the misery because it is familiar and comfortable.

Drawing Good Into Your Life

Feeling good Wallpaper__yvt2  At some point in your life, you’ve likely encountered a circumstance you’d like to change. Maybe you want a different job, to meet someone special, or to pursue online training so you can finish your degree. Being conscious about what you want and need is an important step in following the Law of Attraction, a metaphysical thought process based on the notion that like attracts like. Asking the universe for gifts is one thing. Empowering change based solely on the way you think is another.


Made popular recently by the book and movie, The Secret, the Law of Attraction can work if you know how to work with its energy. Operating under the belief that what you put into the universe comes back to you, thinking positively makes more sense. (Pay attention, pessimists!) Rather than demanding an A in that online course you’re taking, offer to help the universe.

Your Life Without Limits

    Each and every one of us, at some point feel we can achieve so much in this Life. We are filled with positive energy flowing through our body feeling so powerful and confident. Like we can conquer the world.

But then, there also comes a moment when we feel the opposite (negative) just because we didn’t achieve that something that we struggled so hard for or we regret over a bad decision we made. We start doubting and underestimating ourselves. We start to blame ourselves for the consequences. Now let’s not say “That’s how life is !”

That is simply giving up on your hopes. Instead, take a moment, close your eyes and visualize how you want things around you to be, how you want your life to be. Change will work in your favor if you permit it to.

Be Truly Present

   

        Over the past few weeks, I’ve been reading The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle and it really has me thinking. It’s been helping me to contemplate my life currently and how I can change it for the better. I have recently discovered that life has many options like the numerous chip choices one would find in higher end vending machines. The only thing, I as a conscious human being needs to do, is be thankful for and aware of all the beautiful things in the world around me!

The Power of Now teaches the reader how to be truly present. Whether the present moment is full of happiness, sorrow, or anger. If you are able to become truly in the moment you can learn to control your mood and enhance the outcome of the moment as a whole. Becoming truly present is an important skill to develop if you are to looking to become genuinely happy. If you are able to control your sadness and anger, as well as deeply feel your happiness, I think you are on the brink of something truly special: contentment…..

Creative Thinking is Essential for Success

 

     This is a factor most often ignored by many people. Or rather not considered. I believe Creative Thinking is crucial to every aspect in life. It helps get the best out of us and gives us many different perspectives on things we would otherwise have done by the norms. Creative Thinking is being different and standing out from the crowd. If you have noticed, all the millionaires in the world are where they are today because they thought something different or did something differently.creative-thinking-room

"What matters is not what you do, but how you do it."

   It sure requires courage and dedication to shine out from the rest. The focus should be on creativity, action, doing and not boredom, complaining, or idleness.

It is nothing but taking the efforts in materializing your goals blended in with your creative juices. A person with a positive attitude sees the positive side of all situations. He or she is optimistic about the future and hence is able to take responsibility for their actions. A positive mental attitude stresses joy and discovery over sadness & depression.

Reveal The Person You Really Are

    You are out there at a social gathering or a get-together and your having a really nice time interacting with the new people you’ve just met, indulging in some great conversations and after a while they ask, “So, what do you do?”

Your answer to this simple question reveals an incredible amount about your personal sense of identity.

When faced with the question, “What do you do?” most people automatically respond by talking about their 9 to 5 occupation. The problem with this response is that it immediately defines you in terms of your job and places you in a pigeon hole that is often filled with stereo types associated with your profession. Is that who you really are?

Let me give you an example, Jessica is a marketing executive who is working at an MNC. However, her real passion in life is painting. When she is not working, she spends most of her time painting. For a long time, whenever someone asked “So Jessica, what do you do?”, Jessica’s response was, “Oh, I’m a marketing executive.” The person she was speaking to then asked about what it was like working as a marketing executive. And before she realized, she was talking about her boring mundane job.

The Turtles

turtlesA turtle family decided to go on a picnic. the turtles, being naturally slow about things, took seven years to prepare for their outing. Finally the turtle family left home looking for a suitable place. During the second year of their journey they found a place ideal for them at last!   For about six months they cleaned the area, unpacked the picnic basket, and completed the arrangements. Then they discovered they had forgotten the salt. A picnic without salt would be a disaster, they all agreed.  After a lengthy discussion, the youngest turtle was chosen to retrieve the salt from home. Although he was the fastest of the slow moving turtles, the little turtle whined, cried, and wobbled in his shell. He agreed to go on one condition: that no one would eat until he returned. The family consented and the little turtle left.

Finding Your Life's Purpose

 “Your time is limited; don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma, which is living the result of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinion drown your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition, they somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” – Steve Jobs


In essence, nearly all people work towards an ultimate goal towards being happy in life. With such a simple and beautiful thought that can help you achieve your dreams and ambitions, why is it that being happy is still a farfetched idea for some of us?
Often we convince ourselves that life will be better after we have graduated from college, or sincerely dedicated ourselves to a job that we truly enjoy, or get married and so on – the cycle can be endless. In doing so, not only are you escaping from the beauty of the small moments life has to offer, but you are delaying your happiness – from experiencing blissful happiness right now AND even in the future!

Sit back. Close your eyes. Breathe. Think again.

Be Grateful



How often do we value what we are blessed with? Today in this busy world, do we even spare a few minutes to be thankful and grateful for what we are blessed with? I am sure for many of you the answer is a hesitant yes. It’s a fact that most of us remember God only when we are facing troubles or in need of something and not when we are happy with the way our lives are going. True?

Well, I just want to convey one message. What you value in your life increases in value. When you are grateful, you radiate feelings of happiness and you automatically feel happy from within. What you focus on , grows. Try implementing this small yet powerful exercise: Every morning when you open your eyes, say to yourself either in a soft whisper or aloud,” I am so grateful for another beautiful day in my life, Thank You God !” or either create  your own similar affirmations.  Trust me, you will feel a state of bliss and energy throughout the day.  Put this into a habit by doing it for 21 days and see how great you feel about yourself and your life. Your perception will begin to shift.

Take Action

It's an irony- we all want to achieve our goals but we don't want to take action. Instead we just keep procrastinating giving ourselves more time to doubt.

                                  "You want something, go get it period."

  Why make things complicated when we know how simple it is. We know what we have to do, but we don't act upon it.                            
                                                                  
                                                         Why?

 Consider this: While watching a movie, we get inspired by the actor's amazing six pack abs and body, we say to ourselves, "I am going on a diet from tomorrow and I will go to the gym regularly." Next day what happens, we either forget about it or we find some excuses.

 This happens because we were inspired but not motivated. There is quite a difference between the two. Inspiration is a feeling usually gained from external sources, it's a feeling of excitement and a let’s do it now attitude. Inspiration leads to motivation. Where as Motivation is a push from within to take action after being inspired.

Our Deepest Fear




Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous?

Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn’t serve the world. There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us - it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

FEAR? What's that?

Have you ever felt that you could do so much more with your life and your talents if you could just overcome fear? What is it that you are truly afraid of and how is it keeping you from getting what you really want? What if you could overcome it this year? What kind of momentum could you create in your life? If you are interested in mastering fear for good and getting what you are truly after in your life, you are about to learn the key which can lead you where you want to go.

The first step is to define what you are afraid of. Too often, we try to master fear by not confronting it and trying to deny it or cover it up. The very principle of fear is that it keeps you from meeting something head on. If you refuse to meet fear head on and continue to try and bypass it, it is going to continue to grow independent of your interference. Sit down and clearly write out what it is that you are afraid of.

Believe in Yourself

There comes a phase in life where u want certain things so bad...That u keep asking & asking, feeling it's the right time to recieve them but they dont materialize at the time you want them to...
Why?

At first i didnt understand the philosophy to this, but as the years flew by I understood one thing, everything has it's right moment, it's right purpose, & it's right reason to occur.

I believe that whatever you want in life...you should just keep asking & asking without a doubt & BELIEVE that it will materialize & at the same time don't be laidback assuming it will take place effortlessly. You should do whatever it takes if it's important to you. Take action, chase it coz its no ones but yours & only for you.  I will never forget this moment where I set my eyes on my dream bike. I tried every possible way to save up for it. Requested my mom to put in half the amount.

Never Ever Give up on Yourself


THE FERN AND THE BAMBOO


ONE DAY I DECIDED TO QUIT...


I QUIT MY JOB, MY RELATIONSHIP, MY SPIRITUALITY....

I WANTED TO QUIT MY LIFE.


I WENT TO THE WOODS TO HAVE ONE LAST TALK WITH GOD.


"God", I said. "Can you give me one good reason not to quit?"


His answer surprised me.


 "Look around", He said. "Do you see the fern and the bamboo?"

 "Yes", I replied.

 "When I planted the fern and the bamboo seeds, I took very good care of
them. I gave them light. I gave them water.

The fern quickly grew from the earth. Its brilliant green covered the

floor. Yet nothing came from the bamboo
seed. But I did not quit on the bamboo.

 "In the second year the fern grew more vibrant and plentiful. And again,
nothing came from the bamboo seed. But I
did not quit on the bamboo.

 "In year three there was still nothing from the bamboo seed. But I would
not quit. The same in year four.

Focus on Change

As my eyes follow the black text of my IT books, i wonder how can i become a better person? How can i get to my greatness? & im sure everyone here wants the same.


I realized one thing....it's all about the mindset you carry, because what you think in your mind is the way you portrait yourself to others. Right?? Rather than having your mind wander around things that aint important at this very moment...Focus all your energy on what is important and on what you want.


Sometimes it is easy to feel we have no real control on the direction that our lives are going in and this can leave us feeling helpless and depressed as it becomes hard to see any way possible that the situations and circumstances will change. But, there is a way that you can make those changes happen and take control of the direction that your life is heading in and begin to manifest the results that you want to have and to see. You really can become a much more powerful and successful version of yourself.

Concentration

The best advice I came across on the subject of Concentration.
Wherever you are and whatever you are doing, be there, be present.
When you work, work. When you play, play. Don’t mix the two.

Give whatever you are doing and whoever you are with the gift of attention. If you give the gift of attention, you will receive more attention in return and it feels really nice and appreciated for either.

On the way to work, concentrate on what you are doing - not the work.

Pay attention and give attention. Don’t just drift through the day with no direction and your thoughts going in all directions.

Fears- Face Them

  It’s human nature to be guided by our fears, this inbuilt fear has ensured the survival of humankind for millions of years. Without fear, we may not have survived to be who we are today, but this same inbuilt survival mechanism, can also limit our true potential in life for financial success, or to follow our dreams. Many of our fears are adopted during our childhood, or even later in life through our normal life experiences. The way we interpret and analyse these experiences & the emotional response we attach to these experiences, will determine how much fear prevents us from putting ourselves in the way of that situation again.


Overcoming fear in not easy, fear is a powerful & not a very pleasant emotion, but in our lives, too much fear will prevent us from not only trying new things, but may prevent us from trying again if things do not work out the way we would have liked the first time. In life, there is no failure or rejection, there is just feedback. If we try something new, & things do not work out the way we had hoped, that doesn't mean we have failed, we have just received some feedback on how to do it better next time.
