The defining point of who we are is the moment we decide how to view our experience.
The defining point of who we are is the moment we decide how to view our experience.
Sometimes life is hard but it can still be filled with joy and happiness. You may not always get what you think you want, but when you grow older and look back on your life, you will see that you got what you needed. The pieces will begin to slip together in an awe-inspiring manner. While we all strive to find happiness, we must also accept that there is a natural ebb and flow to it and that when we experience hard times, those trials allow us to experience more profound joy. We cannot have one without the other, so… Read more.
At this very moment, you are creating your future. Some people believe that life just happens and that there is nothing they can do about it. Don’t make this mistake. You will limit the abundance that you are meant to have in your life. There are bad things that happen and there are circumstances that cannot be changed. However, in every situation, you can make choices. If you truly want to live a good, authentic and rewarding life, you have to internalize the fact that it is your daily choices that decide how your life will turn out. Each minute… Read more.
Understand that YOU were born into this world to make a difference by giving back to others in some way. When you share your gifts with the world, you begin to receive the most amazing gifts in return with a more fulfilled and enriched life. You’ll know when this commitment of giving back feels right because you will truly be living and breathing your own legacy… yes, LIVING your legacy… not leaving it behind when you exit the planet. If you have ever been mentored, guided or coached by someone in any way, you understand the feeling of being supported by… Read more.
From birth to this point in your life, you are an amalgam of your life experiences. They are the events and interactions with others that have defined you, from childhood games of playing house in cardboard boxes to tumultuous adult bedroom alliances. Each scene of your life blends with the others to create your story–or at least the story about you that you’ve scripted so far. Your story is, in fact, just a story. The beauty of the life you live is that you can redefine or, as I call it, rescript your story any time you want! You are… Read more.
It is but a choice, each moment, each breath, to live our most powerful life.
Are you ready for the secret to maximizing your life?
Probably not as it must be too good to be true… Right?
Well today I’ve got something for you that you may find unbelievable!
You may have heard me mention my friend Andy Shaw’s work before, well he’s just released a new video training on The Secret To Maximizing Your Life.
I’ve just watched the full training and what he explains in it is very simple to grasp, but actually shocking to consider….
Are you ready to take a look and see how far the rabbit hole goes on maximizing your success?
You are not a result of your circumstances, you are a result of your choices. It is not the experiences you are presented with in life that define you, but instead how you deal with them. It is how you grow from them. It not the fact that you have faced difficulties in your life, but instead it is who you become while facing them. You are not a result of your circumstances, you are a result of your choices. In every moment you get the choice to be inspirational. Or not. In every moment you get the choice to… Read more.
There is no shortage of people waiting to help those who have already decided. But the world continues to ignore those who haven’t.
Over the years, I have both loathed and loved my body. I have found that loving my body is much, much better. So I made a decision to love my body, not in spite of imagined flaws or ways that it deviates from the media ideal of what a body should look like, but rather because it is mine and it is perfect. I spent decades putting my life on hold—waiting to achieve an acceptably, socially, skinny body. I didn’t lose any weight (at least not permanently). All I lost was a few decades. So one day I made a… Read more.
Happiness, health, prosperity and peace, a better world for our children – all of us want these same things in life. I believe that our wish for a harmonious world begins and ends with doing good. This holds the power to positively transform us from the inside and then ripple out in ever expanding circles, impacting the world at large. You can find your place in life by choosing to think good, speak good and do good. Good starts with each one of us as an individual. It’s a personal journey filled with opportunities on which you can choose to… Read more.
As a child, I was struck by how different I felt from everyone. With acute awareness, I felt alien. To be adult is to realise that we have more similarities than differences. We have the same needs, wants, desires, no matter where we happen to be born on this globe. It is through our heart perspective that we link through a smile: a soul connection. We have a choice in every moment… to continue to uphold a ‘them’ and ‘us’ approach to life, focusing on our differences, or to speak through our heart connection, in the language of trust. “A… Read more.
Life is about making choices. Each one of us has our own story with twists and turns, choices and opportunities. You may think you know where your story will take you. You may think you have control to direct your own path. I believe that none of us has control – we have choices. Every choice you make points you to the next opportunity to choose. Don’t be passive and let life or circumstances choose for you. And don’t let fear of making the wrong choice keep you from making the best choice that you can. It is possible that… Read more.
Stay naive in the belief that everything is going to be all right. Because if you don’t trust that this is true, the Universe won’t be able to assist you. Don’t take your thoughts too seriously. Learn to laugh about yourself. Choose the path of least resistance, which isn’t the lazy or comfortable one, but the one led by your enthusiasm and joy. Understand that happiness can only be experienced now, in the embodiment of the present as it is. Happiness isn’t excitement. It’s not even an emotion. Happiness is a state of no-resistance, of acceptance of what-is. It’s neutrality within, regardless… Read more.
Some lives seem riddled with sadness and even tragedy. Many live a life of grief and despair. And yet there are others who experience similar lives who somehow become stronger and decide to make a difference in the world. I believe we have total control over how we respond to things that happen to us. We can choose to remain a victim or, after we have worked through our grief, we can decide to come out swinging. I have had my fair share of sadness in my life – some from mistakes I’ve made, others from mistakes others have made…. Read more.
We’ve only got one shot at this thing called life. And yet, all too many of us tend to give it away to living other people’s expectations. All too often, young people spend the first two decades of their lives absorbing their world’s expectations for them – figuring out what their parents and communities think they should be doing. They internalize those dreams, those visions, those goals. And then, they spend the next several decades trying to fulfill others’ expectations of what their lives should be like. And then, sometime on the approach to middle age, they become surprised that… Read more.
If I could leave one piece of wisdom to the people on this planet before I go it would be that we always have a choice. We have a choice of not only what we put in our mouths for nutrition but also what we put in our minds and how we live our life. So much emphasis is placed on exercise and physical health, and that is indeed important. But we have to remember our emotional/spiritual health as well. We must choose to only accept positive thoughts, positive self talk, and remember with every exhale we have the ability… Read more.
Every day you wake up is the start of a new beginning, a second chance. You can choose how you want to spend your day – happy, sad, frustrated or angry. Are you going to follow your dreams, your passions or are you going to go through the drudgery of the day, as you have done in previous times? Dream big, really big. Follow your dreams, your heart, your passion. Make something of yourself. Why should you not? Put your dreams out to the universe and it will conspire to make them happen. Never lose sight of your dreams and… Read more.
We often make attempts to compartmentalize different elements in our lives, but it is best when we allow all of these elements to flow together into a rich tapestry. Hopefully, this piece will allow you to see how the integration of mindset, nutrition, movement, and purpose can lead you to your happiest and most fulfilled life: 1. Don’t ever make an attempt to “lose weight”. Instead, respect your body, and know that it deserves the best. Stay away from fad diets that demonize specific food groups, and instead go for organic plant foods that are high in nutrients. Your body… Read more.
