Hello Hello Hello,

To everybody reading now, thank you. I started this blog nearly a year ago and never imagined I would be helping peoples lives. This is what I’m here to do and will continue to do.

I’ve just come back from a 2 week holiday in Cyprus and let’s just say I learnt a lot about myself. I’m filled with love, energy, and motivation and I plan to share it with you guys for as long as I’m breathing.

Without further delay, let’s get into this weeks Quote:

“A life spent making mistakes is not only more honorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing.”

When we make mistakes we learn. When we learn, we develop as human beings that can then move on to teach other human beings the lessons we have learnt.

Life is all about learning, developing and experiencing new things. If you don’t move, you stay in the same position never truly living to your life’s full potential.

We can’t be afraid of making mistakes or failing. We limit ourselves by this way of thinking. I understand no one wants to fail or make mistakes, but by recognizing them as factors to help improve our lives, we start to reprogram the way we perceive our current situations within day to day life.

Think about it…if you never made any mistakes and life was all perfect, how would you grow as an individual? The same applies to failure, if you never fail, how would you grow and learn from life’s lessons?

I know they say a wise man learns from the mistakes of others and I do agree, however, we need to make mistakes ourselves otherwise there wouldn’t be a harmonic balance in our lives.

The more I think about it, the more I see how failure and mistakes are related. Don’t get it twisted though, they are very different things but closely related never the less.

You could fail at something no fault of your own, so the mistake isn’t on you.

You could fail at something due to a mistake, no worries, move on and learn from it.

You could make a mistake but it doesn’t make YOU a failure.

You could make a mistake which causes a business to fail, still however, YOU are NOT the failure, the business is.

If you are a good person and do something bad, it doesn’t make you a bad person. It just means you done something a bad person would do. We can’t identify ourselves by our actions…Please remember this!

Failure is success turnt inside out – Remember this when you next fail!

The motto is to try, try and try again.

That’s how most entrepreneurs get/got rich…They fail a countless amount of times yet still have the fighters spirit to keep trying and trying again – This is what you call persistency.

Life ain’t easy! However, by recognizing and changing your thought patterns, life can be made A LOT  easier. First, you need to know that you are not your mind, thoughts or emotions.

Good and bad is a perception of the mind. You can look at situations for what they are or you can perceive them using the mind – The choice is yours!

I actually don’t mind failing anymore as I know I’ll learn a valuable lesson both for myself and others. The same goes for mistakes…

If I screw up, so what, I screw up…get over it. I never aim to make mistakes but when I do I accept that I’ve made a mistake, learn from it and move on…Never dwell on the past. Dwelling on the past is poison to the mind as you can’t change what has happened already, so get over it and look towards the future while living in the now (the present which is essentially a gift)

The next time you attempt to do something, whatever it is, recognize that failure and mistakes are all apart of the game. Look at them as friends which offer tough love and the possibility of self improvement. Once you stop identifying them as the enemy your life will improve 10 fold. WHY?

Because not only will you have you changed your thought pattern but also your perception on the reality in which we all live.

If you have a big goal, dream or ambition that you haven’t chased due to your old enemies/new friends by the name of”Failure and Mistakes” then make that change today and say to yourself:

“I know I can make this happen” “I will make this happen”

“I know I can make this happen” “I will make this happen”

“I know I can make this happen” “I will make this happen”

Look in the mirror everyday while stating the above…See it and believe it to be true!

Keep dreaming big, keep goal setting and believe and know in your heart that:

IT WILL HAPPEN

And the rest is history

Have a great week guys

Peace, Love and Blessings to you all

NAMASTE
