Life is not that complicated, in fact it’s fairly simple – not always easy – but fairly simple! When I woke up and realized a life full of uncommon success was not just for other people it was for me too, I began to apply these 5 principles into my everyday life. Awareness – If you don’t get it, you can’t change it. If you don’t acknowledge it, you can’t fix it. If you don’t own it, you can’t improve it. We have to take a good hard look in the mirror, acknowledge where we have room for improvement, recognize where… Read more.
Superstitions are irrational beliefs – beliefs that are held in spite of evidence to the contrary. Do you carry the daily burden of irrational beliefs and/or earlier life transgressions that work to sabotage your good efforts and attitude? Are you going through difficult times with family members in rehab or with you personally with your addictions, diseases and problems? In my own life I have seen (and participated in) failed relationships, drug addiction and errant business ventures. When these things happen, it is easy to let these “failures” weigh heavily upon your shoulders. Some go so far as to willingly… Read more.
Open your heart to possibilities, allowing the light of God to give you what you need. You can have plans; however, you must allow space for surprises, delights, connections, and the time it takes for things to unfold. Hope comes from the head and heart, through the soul and the spirit. Don’t get stuck in a ‘little idea’ of you, but find freedom in knowing that beyond you, there is a force working to pick up the pieces in the darkest hours, the brightest days and even through confusion and healing! The four-letter word “Life” has allowed us to be… Read more.
Our attitudes are not about what’s happening or has happened to us but rather how we are responding.
Most of what I have learned in my few years here on this beautiful planet is to always keeps a positive attitude. Remember that when you are dealing with others. Sometimes you might feel you are a recipient of a bad attitude, but what you have to remember is that while you may be really jovial, they may be facing some kind of problems in their life that is reflecting in their attitude. Remember that this has nothing to do with you. You are not the only one with problems and you should take into consideration other people and their… Read more.
If there is one piece of advice I would offer you, it’s this: never – and I despise using absolute words like “never” – never stop encouraging yourself and others in the pursuit of worthy goals. This advice is inspired by the definition of the word encouragement, which is “to give hope and confidence to.” Can you imagine what this world would look like if we were constantly infusing others with hope and confidence? What would this world look like if EVERYONE was walking around with hope and confidence – despite the challenges they face in life? With successful strategies, always… Read more.
You are not diminished by your pain. Your spirituality is not measured by the presence or absence of difficulty in your life. Challenge is not a punishment or a reward. It is not a reflection of your value to the world; it is a reflection of your choice to grow and learn and make mistakes. Although your thoughts and attitudes attract and create your life, you are not your thoughts. “Your thoughts control your experience of reality. But your thoughts cannot affect, or change, or control, or even touch who you are.”~ Paul Williams, Remember Your Essence Remembering your essence will… Read more.
Our attitudes are the crayons that color our world.
Gossip and catty behavior happen. You have the power to make it stop and achieve great things!
As a psychotherapist and wellness speaker for 35 years, I have been fortunate to have learned many lessons about life from the many people who have shared their innermost thoughts with me. Certain lessons that I have learned time and time again, and they have helped shape my understanding of life. These insights have helped me tremendously both personally and professionally in helping others. Life has a way of teaching us lessons that no one ever could. Although of course there is a place for teaching others, all too often we want others in our lives to change so much… Read more.
Over forty years ago, I made an (un)fortunate career choice to enter the computer industry during its infancy. It is a brutal business that changes radically every twelve to eighteen months, has tremendous cost pressures and has huge financial rewards. It is not for the faint of heart. To survive during my career, I derived five principles that provide a broad framework for life: Disruptive change will constantly occur Live one day at a time Keep a positive attitude Do something significant Embrace the richness of life Disruptive change will constantly occur Change and disruption constantly occur. Disruptive change has… Read more.
Life is Mother Nature’s most important gift. Life is the time provided to us by nature to pursue our dreams and goals and live it to the fullest. Life is an ongoing experience, where each one of us faces different situations and incidents that either make or break us. It’s just a matter of the way you perceive things; it’s your attitude towards the experiences that make your life a joyful ride. To me the difference between a successful and unsuccessful person is whether or not they are taking action instead of giving-up. If there is one thing I don’t… Read more.
In my work with the sick and dying, I am all too familiar with having that last day on earth. It is a humbling experience to be present when someone leaves their physical shell behind to journey home. It is in these moments that I am divinely aware of how precious each day is. Recently, as I held the hand of a woman dying, she whispered this in my ear: If I had forgiven my son, he’d be holding my hand right now. Tell those around you they need to practice forgiveness and be grateful for the many blessings in… Read more.
Changing and improving our attitude can help us change the way we see and do things. I have learned that a positive mental attitude is far more important than aptitude to succeed in life. I also learned that it is not easy at first because we all have been conditioned since we were born to see and do things and in many cases to think a certain way. But with practice we can improve our attitude. Here are my top ten tips to build and maintain a positive mental attitude: 1. Stay away from negative and pessimistic people. 2. Do… Read more.
Have you seen people who are anxious, upset, and always worried, who just can’t seem to think positive? That is because they are lost in their misery. When you look at the dictionary, positive attitude has a few different meanings, but I focus on these: optimism, confidence, and focusing on the good things rather than the bad. People often ask me, “How have you survived all the things you have gone through, Habibo? How can you be the sole care provider for three children, work two jobs, attend school full-time, and most importantly give back to the community?” I tell… Read more.
An attitude of gratitude is what everyone is seeking these days, because they know that the more they can feel gratitude, there will be more they can be grateful for always around them. There is always something to be grateful for. Now there are those who would doubt this; that’s okay, be grateful for them for in the allowing of another to have their attitude that gives you the same permission to have yours — and yours is an attitude of gratitude! Bring yourself into alignment with the attitude of gratitude by allowing yourself to be happy, happy about as… Read more.
It is far too easy to get caught up in all the noise, chatter and distractions that come our way. Maintaining focus in the chaos is often a mighty challenge. In times of our greatest crises the power of doubt, fear, stress and anxiety has enormous force. As this adversity grips us, something as simple as finding peace and maintaining confidence can be incredibly difficult. As I lived through the early experiences of my youngest son’s addiction, I found myself completely distracted by his every move, thought, action, and decision. I became uncontrollably focused on saving him from his illness… Read more.
