When looking in the mirror are you just looking at the reflection or are you really seeing yourself ? I never realized when I looked in the mirror I wasn’t really seeing me. It was strange the first time I looked myself in the eyes. Like as if I was staring into a strangers eyes. Instead of being in shock that I have never taken the time to do this before . I actually enjoyed what I saw. I was pleased with what I look like . I can see the happiness in my spirit. I can see the energy that people tell me I am giving off.
Look in your Eyes
That is one of the greatest gifts I have ever learned. Really look at yourself and ask yourself ,Do you love you ? Are you happy ? Do you like who you are ? Then listen to your answers and if you don’t like what the answers are then take action in your life. Step out of your box and make changes that are going to give you better results when you ask those questions.
Do we just get so comfortable in our lives that good bad or in different we keep living it ? Why is it so hard to see that the life we are living like it or not we choose into. We also get to choose out of it . Create a new one . It is just a simple as that. People will find every excuse in the book to say it isn’t . But the fact is everyday we make choices in our lives and they got us into the exact situation we are in now.
Are you happy , Really happy ?
If you life isn’t really what you want to be , why do you think you have to keep doing it . Why is it so hard to see life is not what society has created life to be . There is more to life than a good career and a 9 to 5 job. What happened to family and enjoying life. It is crazy that your employer gets to tell you how many days you are allowed to be sick in a year. When you can take vacation and how many times a year you can do that. Some jobs don’t even give you a choice when you can take it. It is quite bazaar to me .
It is sad to see all the stereotypes in the world. Being in the business that I am in I get to meet of different people. I realize how naive people are. They judge people on what society suggests that people are.
Don’t judge a book by it’s cover!
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder
I met a woman in LA last week that lives in the mid west. We got to talking about tattoos . She went on to say her impression of them. Then she went on about people that had tattoos are kinda rough in personality. Then I explained to her that I myself have several tattoos. That I intend to be a heavily tattooed woman. She was in shock. I had just finished tell her about how I am class mom and a volunteer in the school library. What a Suzie homemaker type of mother I am. I all in one conversation had changed her opinion of tattooed people. Then I made her realize that she prejudges people based on stereotypes. She really couldn’t see it to that extent.
It is sad to think that people aren’t given a fair chance for things based on the way they look. I am grateful that I am who I am . I break barriers of stereotypes. I love stepping up to the challenge . You really have to keep an open mind to make a difference and not get upset or angry when people express their opinion on people. Just put them in someone Else’s shoe for a glimpse of what they face on a daily .
Do you judge a book by it’s cover?
I think it is truly important for you to challenge yourself . Do something you would never do . Once you do that you will see that it is not that hard to believe in yourself and accomplish your goals. No matter what your past beliefs may be , You have to understand life is a CHOICE.
Every Day Step Out of The Box
Choose in to your own life. If you can see the bight side of everything life will be a much easier road to drive. Obstacles will not be to challenging for you. You will rise to the top of any situation. Most importantly remember you deserve to be happy .
goodbye belly hello body
This is the year for amazing things to happen. I used 2008 as the year to learn how to use the tools of life. It has been a very fulfilled year of educating myself. I am so excited about getting to apply all the tools. I understand that in order for anything to happen I need to stay well rounded.
I have to nurture my body, mind & soul. As well as my wallet! I can be free mentally but I will never really be free until I am financially free.
This is My Life in Abundance! It is time for me to take that big step out of the box.
Many people want to make changes in there life . A lot don’t know how to go about it. Well , First you have to understand that the way you think is a habit. You are taught everything you know. Taught. That means out of repetition you create a habit of thinking. As a result of your thinking your behavior reflects your habits. Habits we are told that you can break them .
Are you ready to reinvent yourself?
Ask yourself a few questions:
- When I look in the mirror do I really know the person in the reflection?
- Do you like who you are?
- Are you financially happy?
- Are working a job that you are happy at?
- Do you keep good relationships?
These are just a few questions that you need to run past yourself. After asking yourself these questions think of your answers. Are they helping you work towards the goals in your life? If the answer is NO. That is OK. At anytime you can make the decision that you are going to change. Then at any moment you can take action to make those changes.
Remember , People close to you aren’t always excepting of change. You are making them step out of their comfort zone. They have to change they way HABITUALLY treat you. Don’t let that discourage you . It is your life. If you aren’t happy with it CHANGE IT! Don’t stay unhappy to make others feel comfortable.
Not everybody is capable of giving forgiveness. I have to say we are taught that it shouldn’t be easy. But the fact of the matter is it is very easy. You either can get over it or not. If you think to yourself can I change what happened? If the answer is no , Then Ask yourself is with worth holding on to the bad feelings that go with it.
Can you Forgive?
Forgiveness is a decision. You can break it down to:
- Forgiveness vs. Trust.
- Us vs. Them.
- Past vs. Future.
Any of those are were we create our doubt in letting go and having forgiveness. If you take the second part of each one you get Trust them for future. You cannot base you life on the you and the past. You need to let go of your emotional attachment and then forgive.
To forgive doesn’t mean the person has to know you forgave them either. That is something you can keep to yourself . The reason you forgive is for yourself. When you finally forgive you release all of the bad energy that is attracted with it. It seems harder than it sounds, But not if you STEP OUT OF YOUR BOX!
It might seem silly at times , But it is really important to celebrate even the smallest of successes in your life. I had a whole day with out having a bad thought . That is reason to celebrate. For you it might be a whole day without smoking or cursing. It could be your first sale .Or the first time you made yourself step out of the box. All of those things have cause to celebrate.
Celebrate the Small Successes.
Grateful I have a great computer to take pics with!
When you take the time to do that the things you celebrate will start to become bigger.Make a special dinner in celebration to your first sale. When taking the time to acknowledge the first sale and then taking every sale and embracing that same feeling is priceless. You need to learn to appreciate the little things in order for the big things to happen. It all stems back to gratitude. You have to show that you do appreciate everything you have. Not take a single moment in your life for granted. Like I said before even if it is as small as a pen or the parking spot you got today. Show appreciation for it and greater things will start happening. You have to practice this everyday. Not just when you are in need for something. It doesn’t work out a well when you only do it and expect something in return. The Law of Attraction is a beautiful thing. Use it wisely, I do. Remember what you spend your time thinking about , you will create it for youself . That happens whether you invite it to or not.
How often can you get yourself to do something that you don’t necessarily want to do, to get something you want. Most people won’t even dare step out of their box. In order to have what you may see as impossible you have to challenge yourself.
Don’t Look for the Quick Fix
Everybody would have what they wanted if it was that easy. Like they say nothing is that easy. The hardest part for almost everybody is stepping out of your box and sticking it out till you reach your goal. Most people that would say it didn’t work out for them or it wasn’t ment to be. Those are the people that quit on themselves. They had failed to stick it out. Sometimes the things you would like take time to acquire. But if you give up of course you will not succeed. If The Wright Brothers gave up on flying would we have air travel today?
Just remember what you do counts forever…
Be something before you do something and do something to have something. Do you understand what that means? In order to have something, you need to start at the beginning. You have to be something . Who are you ? What do you want to be. The first step is to figure that out. Once you have pin pointed that start being it. Don’t be afraid of it either. Embrace what you want.
Then you can bring yourself to the do part. You start doing , Taking action. See what it is going to take to get you the results you want. Are you stepping out of your box in order to make your do happen. Sometimes we have to make ourselves uncomfortable in order to grow.
Finally you will have achieved your goal of having. Before your very eyes you will have achieved things you had never thought possible. All because you made a decision, Took action and have a result.
Be. Do. Have.
