What’s Good My Good People 🙂

How are we all doing today?

I don’t know what the climate is like where you are reading from but there have been quite a few floods over here in the UK recently and an area not to far from me got hit pretty bad. But I’m still breathing and alive so all is well 🙂

Today I want to discuss an issue that seems to be affecting most of the world right now..

It’s like a bug that has gone viral and the antidote is hard to obtain (Too many Sci-fi movies I know lol)

I know every country had been affected with this syndrome as I see it around me everyday whether it be people I know or shows on the TV…

Without further ado, I bring you this weeks QOTW:

“To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.”

Let me ask you guys something…

Do you actually enjoy life?

Like on a serious note…Do you see yourself looking back when you are coming to the end and thinking:

“WOW, what an amazing life I’ve lived”

OR is it the total opposite for you?

I’m at a place in my life where I am trying to not only enjoy life as a whole, but also trying to enjoy each and everyday WITH EACH AND EVERY BREATH

WHY?

Because life is short…

It feels like just the other day I was 16 years young in school with my friends messing around in class, chatting up the girls in the playground, catching jokes at lunch time  and now I’m 25 setting up businesses and trying to help the world LOL – Life is crazy…

stop

A lot of people complain about their current circumstances as they haven’t experienced anything worst…

People complain about mi-nute things. Through their complaining they forget about their blessings…Sound familiar?

As you are reading this now, I can only assume you have access to the Internet right?

I assume you know where your next meal is coming from, right?

I also assume that at this moment in time you are wearing clothes that cover your skin?

Add love, health and a roof over your head to the equation and you are looking at the BASIC human essentials to live a reasonably comfortable life. Money is needed of course, but maybe the amount of money you have acquired isn’t the amount of money you WANT.

“Please note that wanting and needing are two different entities within themselves”

From when you have what you NEED, you also have the POWER to go and get what it is you WANT. That is your natural given birth right my friend.

I’m trying to help you see that:

YOU ARE BLESSED BEYOND ALL MEANS AND HAVE WITHIN YOU THE POWER TO CHANGE YOUR LIFE IF YOU ARE NOT HAPPY WITH IT. YOU HAVE THE POWER TO START TRULY LIVING LIFE RATHER THAN JUST EXISTING.

Moving On

Imagine if a doctor told you that you had 1 month to live… How would you live your life differently?

How would your life change in terms of how you live and what you do everyday?

I find people usually respond with an answer along the lines of:

“I’d enjoy my life to the fullest – I’d do this, I’d go here, I’d get that, I’d get this”

Hmmm, interesting…

Here’s a follow up question for you:

Why is it that we have to wait for circumstances to become so dire before we start embracing life and doing what we REALLY want to do?

I feel people get stuck in a rot as to what life is really about due to all the crap we are surrounded by and have to face everyday.

This includes: Society, the media, belief systems, thought patterns, religion and all the baggage we carry around with us. We then end up too tired, busy and blind as to what it is we TRULY want to do and how WE TRULY WANT TO LIVE…Sad times, I know…

It isn’t all bad though as within having this information is the acknowledgment of where you are in life at present and where you want to be…

By becoming conscious of your true self and not your “self image” that has been created by other’s, you take the 1st step into a new life by a new way of living, thinking, speaking and your interaction with others.

People work in 9-5 jobs that they hate. They have families that they can’t spend time with because they are stuck in the rat race. They loose a passion for living because the way they see it is:

“Life is not worth living if this is all I’m  living for”

more please

There must be more!

People go through the routined cycle of “not enjoying life” by doing things they do not enjoy.

So it’s understandable why some (or most) of our population merely exist rather than living…

Good News…

WE CAN CHANGE THIS 🙂

Over night…

Hell no…

But it can be changed 🙂

First we have to look at ourselves individually…

I’ve learned that if you want to see a change in the world then YOU have to be that change…

Don’t worry about others when you have yourself to work on first…

I am in a position to talk like this as I am working on myself at present…

Through working on myself, I feel I can help others to also work on themselves in hope that they will also help others…A domino effect so to speak 🙂

Below is a small program/exercise I’ve put together to help you improve your life in all areas…

time

Time to Live Life Program

1) I believe that the first step to move from “existing” to “living” is to sit down by yourself when it’s quiet and really analyse your situaton.  Look at your life, where you are at the moment and where you want to be.

Just think, if you don’t know where you are at present, then how do you know where you are going?

You don’t know where to start moving towards if you don’t have a starting point. Makes sense right…

The same could be said if were lost on the motorway/highway and needed directions.

2) Assess what you are good at and what you enjoy doing in your spare time. Could you potentially make money from these skills/talents/hobbies?

If you work for money doing something you don’t enjoy, how long can you really do it for before insanity becomes a good friend of yours.

3) Once you establish what you want/where you want to be, devise a plan as to how you’re going to get there. Think of a sat nav for a moment…

You enter in where it is you want to go and it devises a route for you. Think of your journey to a better life as your journey on the motor way…

You are the sat nav devising your clear cut route…

Prepare for bumps in the road as THERE WILL BE BUMPS…

But that’s not a problem because you will have have prepared for those bumps well ahead of time…Right?

What is it going to take?

Are you willing to face personal sacrifice for what you want in order to be where you want to be? A lot of people aren’t willing to put the work in which is another reason why they chose the easier option which is to:

“Simply Just Exist”

Don’t be average. Don’t be normal. YOU ARE BETTER THAN THAT!

4) Once you have everything written down, take your time and go for it. Do at least ONE thing everyday to work towards what it is you want/where it is you want to be. The more things you do everyday working towards your goal/dream, the quicker it will manifest and become your current reality.

Aleast by doing ONE thing everyday, you are always ONE step closer 🙂

YOUR Thoughts/Thinking – Are they holding you back?

Control-Your-Thoughts-Control-Your-Life

Because of YOUR thoughts, you are where you are right now. This was hard for me to comprehend when I first got told this information – But it is true. I won’t get into the subject of thoughts now as I have already covered it on another blog post.

Search for “4D Thinking” if you want to read what was covered there.

To put it simply: YOU CONTROL YOUR THOUGHTS AND NO ONE ELSE

Please think about that…

YOU control where you work!

YOU control how you look!

YOU control your destiny!

YOU have free will!

Apply the above religiously everyday and I can promise you will see results.

I’ll be sharing much more tools to help you lead a better life but I first have to apply these tools on myself to see if they work. So far I’m seeing results…

Ask my Mum, apparently I’m always happy (Even though I go through crap just like the rest of you) – But I decided that the crap I go through doesn’t determine my happiness and how I lead my life…

I use the crap and negativity as a ladder to keep climbing to a better me…

I love you all and hope you continue learning from my experience and crazy stories lol.

NAMASTE
