5 Ways To Help You Attract Good Things Into Your Life

IMG_0617

 

As we go through our daily lives, we sometimes do not take a step back and review what we have which makes us feel good. It is easier to dwell on what doesn’t make us feel good! Why is this so? We tend to find excuses when an aspect of our life does not go our way. I went through a period like this in my life where I was not attracting positive things towards me. We tend to forget that when we surround ourselves with positivity, we feel better and our perception of life changes for the better.

When we see others going through a positive time, we instantly compare ourselves with them and analyse every single detail. Then we will worry ourselves and wonder why this hasn’t happened to us. The behaviors mentioned above are not conducive to living a healthy and balanced life. Never compare yourself to others. You never know exactly what these people are going through.

As I mentioned in one of my previous pieces, your energy level can dictate what comes your way. The more we generate our level of consciousness and awareness, we will better understand our energy levels. If we generate positive vibes then the chances of good things happening will be much higher! This is a good start towards managing ones thoughts.

 

Practice gratitude

The moment you start to appreciate what you have, you will begin to view your life with a more open mind. Show appreciation to others. Recognise mistakes from past experiences. Enjoy what you currently have in the present. Acknowledge what you are grateful for. Write down what you are grateful for when you wake up. You will be able to deal with life better when you accept and appreciate what you have.

 

Be optimistic

Optimism generates high energy levels and points us in the right direction when it comes to achieving our goals. This helps us to see opportunities even when we are in difficulty. When we display this energy, anything will be possible. Life is too short to not be optimistic, since you do not know what is round the corner.

 

Find your purpose

Knowing exactly what you would like to do will help you attract good vibes. If you are unsure about what you want out of life, this can bring you closer to negativity rather than towards positivity. It took me a few years to find out exactly what I wanted to do. Lots of pain and fears were experienced during this time, but I do not regret going through this as it has helped me grow into the person I am today. Especially now, as I have finally figured out my purpose. We all become driven and determined when we have goals in mind. So if you are going through this, keep going.

 

Be more forgiving

In life, it’s not worth holding grudges against others even if it causes us pain. The best thing we can do is to let go and accept. I know it’s easier said then done but you will feel better for it. This can be in regards to events over which you have no control over. Don’t let this make you feel bitter. Instead, take the life lesson away and learn from it. Give yourself the opportunity to grow and develop. At the end of the day, only you are living your life, no one else!

 

Smile and realise there is no need for control

Smiling makes yourself and others feel instantly happy. We should all be smiling more since it’s great for our wellbeing. People who love to smile are drawn more to others. This is fact! Being in high spirits is awesome! Accept that in life there is no need for constant control.

5 Easy Ways To Help You Live In The Now

IMG_0610

 

So many of us struggle to live within the present moment since we think too much about what will happen in the future instead of enjoying what we have right now.
We do not realise that we can miss out on potential opportunities when we do not focus on the now. Our society has conditioned us to think ahead and plan our lives in advance. This has put a lot of pressure on us often causing us to think negatively, which is not conducive to living a happy and balanced life.

It’s not so easy to tell another person to live in the present, especially if they have been wired to think a certain way for the majority of their life. I was advised to do exactly this, but found it quite difficult. I would aim to live in the present, but would fall by the wayside by thinking too much about the future. Fear can hold us back from being at peace in order to enjoy the present.

 

Accept that you cannot control everything in life

The past has been and the future is yet to come. We literally have no control over these two factors. The last thing you would want to do is agonize over them. Life is short and should be enjoyed. What you can take away from the past are the life lessons and ensure that you do not make the same mistakes. You want to better prepare yourself for what is yet to come.

 

Time to look introspectively

This is actually one of the best times to get to know oneself when you start addressing past behaviors, which stop you from living in the present. You will start to see things as trivial and not so important anymore. Looking introspectively helps you become more conscious and aware of your thoughts. The more you understand your thoughts, the easier you will find it to live in the present. This was one of the reasons why I could not live in the present since I was unable to identify myself and my thoughts.

 

No more stress and anxiety

Did you know that when you focus on the now and make the most of it, your levels of stress will reduce drastically. This is due to the fact that you just live instead of overthinking. We will think about the next 5 minutes instead of the next 5 years. When we stop worrying and stressing, we extend the longevity of our lives. For a good proportion of my life, I worried myself aimlessly and ended up being sick many times as a result. Once you start practicing enjoying the now, your life will improve for the better.

 

Accept the fact that things may not go your way as expected

In life, we can plan as much as we would like too. But bear in mind that these plans may not follow through in the way you would like them too. In this day and age, it’s great to be flexible to plan change in order to not get disappointed. There are outcomes which we cannot control. Do note that if plans change, do not take the changes personally as the changes may not have anything to do with you. I have learnt that you just have to continue on and keep living.

 

Generating positivity and happiness

Ever since I started meditating, I focus fully on the present and generating good vibes. I believe that enjoying the present can help you become happier. At the end of the day, happiness is a choice but if we think positively this will help you generate happiness. We will finally be at peace too. Again, be mindful of what is happening around you. We all have the capability to live in the present, but we need to see the positives in order to follow this through.

 

In closing, I will leave you all with another piece of friendly advice. Do not feel afraid to let go and live some moments just for you! Enjoy your life the way you would like to and not how others would like you to live your life. We all have our own subjective perceptions, but do not let them control you. Be a free spirit instead!

We Only Have One Life So Dream Big

IMG_0561

 

We all go through life thinking a certain way; a way, which has been conditioned by our surroundings. The education we receive at home and at school makes up a great part of this. This can be referred to as social conditioning. For many of us, we generate dreams from an early age, but are led down a specific trajectory. This results in us forgetting the dreams we once had.

 

Once we go to school, we are drilled with this mentality to study a certain course, get this job and the list goes on…

Social conditioning has its negatives, since we are put under undue pressure and stress. We all have a creative outlet, but this is schooled out of us rather early on in life. This causes us to only think within the proverbial box as opposed to outside of it. This prevents us from generating big ideas and unleashing the creativity inside us.

The limiting box method of thinking is not very beneficial. At school we should be engaged to further our way of thinking beyond this limitation. We all have the capacity to be challenged and grow within all aspects of our life. This is why I highly recommend dreaming big.

 

What stops us from creating and thinking differently?

We worry too much about what others may think and become subject to cynicism. Thinking outside of the square should be valued not disregarded, since being different is the new cool! If you have the courage and feel inspired, go for it!

Below, I have put together some helpful tips to gather up the confidence to start you off on your journey towards generating big ideas:

 

Getting out of your comfort zone

This is a classic example for us all since we like to remain in the position where we feel most at home. But thinking intergalactic will not work if you cannot throw yourself outside of certain parameters. The fact still remains that, the moment we are exposed makes us fend for ourselves. This is a perfect opportunity to work on our weaknesses and improve aspects of our lives.

 

Finding your passion

If we listen to our hearts then we are most likely going to work harder as it will ignite the necessary fire for us to jump in. But as human beings we have the tendency to listen more to our ego then to our hearts. Our egos are not often right, which can cause devastating consequences.

 

Learning how to control emotions

Regardless of how big the dream may be, it is crucial to learn how to control our emotions. If we manage our emotions in the right ways when we face obstacles, then we will know how to respond in the appropriate way. I have realised that when my emotions got in the way, they prevented me from generating big ideas and formulating them.

 

Dreaming big helps us understand reality better

The moment you think of an idea which is extraordinary, you will think of how you can implement it. Immediately, you will start identifying the challenges and begin to look introspectively. We think of ways we can better ourselves to make ideas work so we eventually grow with the process. From the moment, I started generating big ideas. I looked inside myself more than ever before.

 

Becoming more persistent and determined

When we find an idea, which we believe has a lot of potential, then nothing can hold us back. All we can think about is how to make it work and turn into something successful. The present moment is very important to us and we will not waste time.

I was a procrastinator in the past, but I have now come out of this and I am finally focusing on what matters to me most. We should all chase after our dreams as only we can achieve them.

 

Tune into your intuition

Believe it or not, but your intuition can be your guide, especially in this situation. The more we tune in, the better we can make life decisions.

A world where everybody is an entrepreneur doing something they love

IMG_0545

 

We are currently living in a time of great technological transformations. The internet has created enormous opportunities for individuals, entrepreneurs and businesses. The most clear game changer with the internet is the direct peer to peer contact it offers with all kinds of people from all around the world. It creates a fabulous opportunity to develop an online business or project in something you truly love and enjoy. In the process, you get to directly connect with many different people finding potential fans and clients who appreciate, love and value what you are doing.

 

Moving away from old Industrial Age model jobs

Currently many people are still stuck in Industrial Age jobs. These jobs are often of a repetitive nature even if, for now, they may provide a stable income and job security. And it could be argued that many people who do these kind of jobs don’t enjoy them (even if they may pretend that they do) and do them purely for the money. Yet these are the jobs most at risk from automation. These are not just jobs in the retail, construction, transport and basic service industries but also high skilled jobs in the legal, financial and, ironically, even tech industries (there will come a time when AI will be able to do most of the programming/data analysing jobs and create better software than humans can).

 

Tapping into your creativity 100%

When the above scenario occurs, instead of the dystopian reality that many predict, people will have a great opportunity to develop a business or project doing something they truly love. They will be using their creativity 100%. They will have to. They will have no other choice. It will be the most important “commodity” we have to offer. The alternative option is to be part of a society of “useless people” (a most disempowering term) who constantly lament about how they used to have a solid job and no longer have it due to automation. These are people who sadly haven’t tapped into their creative resources and the immense power within themselves. Instead they fail to change/adapt and are constantly stuck in the past. A very sad state of affairs but it doesn’t have to be live this!

 

The importance of using your initiative

In our current society only a small segment of the population use their initiative. Most people are crippled by fear, anxiety and low levels of self esteem to take the initiative to start their own business or project. They are more comfortable applying for a limited and dwindling supply of jobs. But one day in the future everyone may be forced to use their initiative. Yet it will be by utilising their creative gifts to their fullest capacity. After automation has made obsolete many jobs in existence our creativity will be king and the entire global economy will be full of individual entrepreneurs and startups all utilising their creativity and operating in something they love, which even benefits and contributes to society in a meaningful way. It will be a truly pure and direct sharing economy of people interacting and transacting with their unique services.

Timing is the best friend you could ever have

IMG_0538

 

This subject has been on my mind for a while now. We all wonder, what does timing actually mean to us? Timing can be defined differently by so many.

I reflected quite recently and thought, why are we making decisions at certain times?

Timing is something quite wonderful. After a long period of searching comes this warm and glowing sun, which paves a pathway in the ocean for us to walk down. For many of us, we expect to be at our destination a lot quicker than anticipated. In life we cannot rush, we just have to go with the tide.

When does timing really make sense?

 

Making peace with the past

Still to this day, I am working on making peace with my past, since you cannot do much to change what has happened previously. We all tend to hold some resentment towards what may have scarred us up until now. There is a reason why the past is called the past and not the present. We learn from this and move forward with the aim to make the present and future better for us.

 

Becoming a better person

This is your opportunity to work on making yourself better and becoming the person you want to be. Some of us want this to happen straight away but you cannot force this. You will see yourself evolve.

 

Healing opportunity

We all have wounds which are quite raw and we constantly rub salt into them. Now is your time to reflect and close the chapters associated with these wounds.

 

Turning negative thinking into positive thinking

The moment you rewire your way of thinking, life will start looking brighter. You will leave a place of darkness and regain control of your life. Nothing lasts forever unless you let it. I am very familiar with this feeling as I am currently coming out of an energy zap.

 

Reconnecting with others

There may come times in your life where we may feel disconnected from others. This is a natural part of life. It is important to give these situations space and time to let people reconnect and align. Note that later on in your life, you may realise that this was of the best things you ever could have done.

 

The moment everything falls into place

You will look back and realise that you had to go through lots of ups and downs in order to get to where you are now. This experience not only made you stronger, but more the wiser. As I mentioned before, after lots of trial and error comes a golden period. The moment this period arrives, your life will proceed like lightning. This energy will be electrifying. You will find that everything you have ever worked hard towards will pay off.

 

Moments of confusion are short lived and will not last. The most important thing is to keep going and push through the pain. It is so easy to drop off, but know that in the long run, the heavens opening is only round the corner. Your bliss is coming and be ready for it!
