to live

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.

powerfulbeyondmeasure

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.

Quotes by: Oscar Wilde/David

What’s up my fabulous people 🙂

How’s the motivation coming along? Are we all still pumped up from our January 2014 resolutions or have we started to slow down? The good thing is, goals can be set the moment you decide to set them. What I mean is, you don’t have to wait until the start of a new month, the start of a new week or the first thing Monday even – Set them as of when you are ready 🙂

Today I wanted to talk about “Inhibitions” and “Caring”.

I’ll first start of by saying…

At the age of 25 I am finally starting to loose all of my inibitions…It’s about time as well lol

I am a very conscious person and this conscious energy I contain has translated to me as “Nervousness” for many years throughout my childhood to this present day.

The thing is right, I’m a very confident person. I’ve just misunderstood why I’ve felt so self conscious around people all this time…

I’m conscious about my body language when I’m talking to others…

I’m conscious as to how my breath is smelling (Did I eat red onions at lunch?)

I’m conscious to the fact that I may have sleep in my eye and that the person I’m talking to may just be too polite to tell me…

Ohhh, here’s a good one: I had some broccoli at lunch time, do I have green stuff in my teeth lol

I mean, all of the above examples are things we are all conscious of, but in my head I am standing there and over analysing to the point that I’m not fully into the conversation…LOL, yes I have issues I know. So although I’m in the conversation, my mind is elsewhere…

But through my madness I’ve realised that there is a difference between being self conscious and “Caring to much about what others think”

And that my friends leasds me to todays QOTW:

“Never be afraid to be you and to be true – Shine your light bright as only you can do it right”

why

People care what others think about them due to the fear of judgement…

We care what others think so much that we don’t express our true-selves. I know as I “used” to live like that and speak to many others that still do.

This is not true living. Living true to yourself and being free means you are able to express yourself without the fear of  what the next person will say, do or think!

Society has created what it means to be “Normal” and I do not agree with it whatsoever…

Since when does a group of people have the power to create “What it means to be normal”

Being normal is being you…Don’t beleive the hype my people…

But we feel we have to conform to the norm. I’ve stopped conforming and I am now truly living just being myself and NOT what others want me to be, do or act.

And whoever doesn’t like it…Guess what they can go and do…

Actually, we will keep it polite and clean around here lol.

Seriously though…

I don’t mind when I’m called strange or different. Why on earth would I want to live and be like everyone else? What fun comes from “being normal”…

I find that “normal” people are boring and follow along like sheep doing what the rest of society and the population are doing…Hell no!

Where does my individuality then come into place?

Or yours?

I believe that whoever created us also created us to be different. (Hence we all have diffrent finger prints, eye colour, body types etc)

We quite clearly weren’t created to be the same. I mean, let’s look at it from DNA cellular level…We are all biologically made up differently if you want to start talking science.

That being said, I also beleive that we were created to express our individuality and too not judge others on the way they chose to go about living their lives.

(The same way we wouldn’t want to be judged for our differences in thoughts, feelings and emotions)

Nothing is weird or strange to me anymore – Just different.

be-who-you-are-quote

 

For me to call something or someone weird, I’d have to be basing that of something I’ve seen before that wasn’t of the norm to me. So between me and my sub coscious mind we’d interpret it as weird as we don’t get it or understand it.

And this is the problem we humans have today. We reject, judge, criticize and analyse that which we do not know or understand. We will then find another 10 people who agree with our view point and judge that “one person” for being different…I hope you are following me…

Who give’s us the right to do that?

I believe the world would be a better place if we all expressed ourselves in a positive light…

Imagine 10 people making a cake compared to say 20 people?

Now the cake may not necessarily taste nice with the input of 20 people but it sure as hell would be different right…Not something out of the norm…

On the other hand it could be the best tasting cake you’ve ever ate, down to everyone’s creativity, love and freedom to add what tasted good to them…You following me?

We all see life through a different lens based upon our up bringing, past expereinces, pain and joy.

No one person will see anything the same – Maybe in a similar light yes, but never the same.

100 people can read the same book and all translate it differently. This is because we are all special individuals…

Dropping your inibitions takes conscious everyday work – I know as I’m currently going through it and have been doing so for say the last 8 months or so.

I find it does get easier though, so no need to fear. However, simply having this knowledge and not taking action upon it does nothing.

I find that to truely ackonwledge something you have to “act upon the knowledge” hence why it’s called acknowledge(ment).

For example – If you’re a guy and you like the colour pink but you are living in the fear of judgement of what others will think about you, then you my man will never be truly happy.

(Although pink is quite a feminine colour for a man) that is simply just my opinion and not something that you should concern yourself with – You see what I just did there???

Ladies, my beautiful ladies –  So what if someone doesn’t like the shoes you’re wearing: Ask yourself…

Am I wearing these shoes to impress others or am I wearing them for my own happiness and pleasure?

I’m confused as to how we humans even got into this state where we care so much about other peoples opinions of us. I know for sure I wasn’t born like this, you wasn’t born like this, so what’s up???

How did we reach this place in our lives where we care so much?

I say it’s the media, society and the taboo’s we are faced with everyday.

Men feel like their penis isn’t big enough because of mainstream media and the crap that comes with it.

this

Women feel they have to wear make up, false hair and nails because the magazines and modelling shows (the media again) say that THIS is how they should look or that THIS is what is in fashion and the “norm” to follow…

We have all been trained to be consumers of designer branding…

iPhone, Samnsung, Louis Vuitton, Nike, Adidas, BMWs, Mercedes…

People feel like their status is highrer than those who cannot afford Gucci or the latest smart phone…WTF?

I smell consumerism…

We live in an ego driven society that I will get deeper into at another time as I don’t want to deviate too much today…

I’m 25 now and I’m no longer holding back on ANYTHING!

It has taken for me to identify some KEY issues within myself  to then discuss the issues with you and too hopefully help you identify and solve them yourself.

You know that song “EXPRESS YOURSELF” – Let’s all make that our new ringtones and alarm clocks until we really get the message lol.

I’ve changed big time over the last 18 months and pretty damn quick too (For the better mind you) This change took place as I wasn’t happy with the way I was living before and knew that I was the only one that could do anything about it…

I am now the first to dance at a party if I feel like dancing. I don’t care about others looking at me like:

“Hey dude, it’s way to early to start dancing”

SAYS WHO???

I dance when I want to dance and ain’t no boddy stopping me. If my song comes on then I’m on the first on the dance floor dropping it like it’s hot baby 😉

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH GUYS – BE YOU, BE TRUE

The moment I stepped on that stage November 9th 2013 and strutted my stuff is the day I said good bye to fear.

It’s the day where I dropped much of my emotional baggage, inhibitions and much needed bull crap which was in the form of:

Others peoples opinion on me, what I looked like etc

afro

Who’s that guy with the Afro?

I got on stage in front of 1800 people in just my underwear and my afro…

(I’m sure that will change anyone actually LOL)

But for real, I had to reach a place where I thought:

You know what, screw what anyone thinks about me…It’s my life, my stage and my time…

And this is the mind set that many of us NEED to adopt to start truly living and enjoying life. Every time you get out there whether it be your place of work, the local shops or anywhere in general…Just remember that:

It’s your stage and your life…

Now like I said above – It will take a lot of work and effort to drop your inhibitions as we have been living like this our WHOLE lives. The older you are the more work you MAY have to do…

However, I promise you that it does get easier…

It’s either that or live and not be 100% happy…

It’s Your life, Your choice and Your free will…

Much Love and Peace to you all

Hey Guys,

How are we all doing in this fine moment? If you’re able to read this now it’s means you’re breathing and if you’re breathing I say you are blessed – Even if you can’t see how blessed you are 🙂

February is already here! If you haven’t got started with your 2014 goals yet, please share with me what you’re waiting for?

If you haven’t set any goals yet think about what you want from life…

From there you’ll have a great starting point to go from. Goal setting give’s us direction in life and without direction we are lost…Would you agree?

Through consciously setting goals over the past 10 years I have learned many lessons (some of which I will share with you today).

One of the many lessons I’ve learned is directly related to:

“Expecting” and “Expectations”

And that my friends brings me to today’s QOTW:

“Expect Nothing and You Will Never be Dissapointed”

Where do I start???

I have faced many set backs and hard ships on my journey in life so far. Many of which could have been avoided had I not allowed my expectations to consume me.

Expectation is a funny little entity and I’ll share with you why that is.

You see, on one hand a person can be sure to expect success upon applying themselves each and everyday over a period of time.

Let’s take fat loss for example.

An over weight person aiming to loose 14lbs CAN expect to loose weight upon performing regular exercise. They CAN expect to drop body fat upon mainating a clean and balanced diet and they sure CAN expect to loose the fat upon learning to be patient.

So why is it then that expectations can cause so much pain, hurt, dissapoinment and grief upon not getting what we had set out for?

This same question puzzled me for some time (still does every now and then).

However, I feel I have the answer to this one (or I’m some what close)

I find that when I want something really bad I can tend to become a bit obsessive.

(Please note, we’re not talking about girls here, more along the lines of goals OK lol – Just had to put that out there)

When I say obsessive, it’s not always bad though. It’s just that when I know I can make something happen and believe I have the control over how quickly it can happen, I want it to manifest instantly (Patience, Patience, Patience David)

disappointment-expectation-reality

When we want something new in our lives time really does become pain in the back side right… and I’m sure we can all relate on that one lol.

Now we could be talking:

Fat Loss – In our minds the fat should have been gone YESTERDAY

A New Car – Time makes it seem like the car you’re driving now looks like something out of chity chity bang bang (Especially if you have your eye on a new motor)

A New Job – The thought of your new salary could have you feeling like you’re currently making pennies although you’re doing fine now

A New Partner – Hmmm – Don’t get me started on this one (hehehe)

We’ve all been there…

CONTROLLING THE OBSESSION

When we obsess on what we want and allow the obsession to consume us, it’s easy to find ourselves in a situation where the obsession itself leaves us in a place where we no longer feel good about what is coming to us…Sound familiar?

Controlling your obsession(s) is critical for when we are discussing expectations. (And this is from my own personal experience)

Also, it’s crucial for us to learn, NOT to expect, that which we have no control over…

To expect something from which you have no control can only put you in a bad place and likely to end in misery.

I know as I’ve been there…

Allow me to share a story with you – True story by the way.

(This time to do with girls or a girl in particular)

David & The Girl

disss

A few years ago when I worked in a local gym, one of my roles was to give customers a free Induction and a 45 minute Personal Training session upon them joining.

I met these two young ladies around my age group who I had the pleasure of giving the induction to. We all got along really well and I’d find myself helping them out with their training sessions when they came to the gym to train.

One of the two females wanted my Blackberry Pin (Instant Chat) so we could engage in conversation OUTSIDE THE GYM – To this I had no objections. Giggiddy 🙂

We started talking more and more and became real good freinds.

I’d arrive to my shift at work with news that she’d been in the gym to train and had come looking for me (Boy did this get to my head)

I felt we had a good vibe going and so did others around me as they kept saying:

“Dave, go for it mate”

So I did just that…

Expecting she would say yes (due to the good vibe we had going), I bottle up the fear and anxiety us males go through when asking y’all out on the first date (yes females, it isn’t as easy as we make it look) and I just went for it…

moment_of_truth

WOOP WOOP WOOP -I broke out doing the happy dance as she said yes (you will see the happy dance one day if you’re lucky lol)

jump

THIS IS HOW I FELT WHEN SHE SAID YES LOL

So what happened after that then Dave, tell us more???

Your guess is as good as mine people, your guess is as good as mine (Sad Face)

I mean, we went on a few dates and it was going really well. At that point I was expecting us to progress further but it just never happened. The strange thing is though right, I knew she liked me…

(Females, I’m still trying to study your species lol)

She mentioned a few times about trust issues relating with her ex but who knows…

Maybe it was a polite way to fob a guy off hahaha….But life is such…

Conclusion

untitled

Story aside though, can you see why expectations can be a bit of a 50/50 gamble?

I feel if you have no say so in a situation then you really can’t expect anything…

However, if the expectation you have set is in your control so to speak, for example, saving money or dropping pounds of fat, then by all means go for it…

Speaking for myself though, I EXPECT to do well in life as I am doing all the things one has to do to become successful:

1) I work smart

2) I practice patience

3) I give without wanting to receive

4) I’m motivated

5) I set goals and dream big

6) I am willing to take calculated risk if it means personal growth for myself and others around me

I could go on but I’m really not trying to toot my own horn here. I’m simply trying to share with you a reality which is available to ALL OF US. A reality which is available to us if we simply apply ourselves.

Focus on becoming a better version of YOU everyday as it’s your God given birth right to do so!

My blog is how I lead my life. I couldn’t tell you to something and not do it myself (Well I could, but it’s not in my nature)

So guys, what will it be?

To expect or not to expect?

Your life, Your choice…

~Thank you for reading –  Nothing but Love as always~

Quotes by: Susan Bay/ David Richards

patience-quotes-6

Wassup y’all,

How are all my wonderful people doing today?

We’re soon hitting the 1st of February already. It amazes me how fast time flies. It feels like just the other night I was boogying the night away on new years eve lol.

Apologies for not sticking to my word and posting up this weeks quote on Monday as I promised. I am truly a man of my word and hate letting people down. Truth be told, life happened…

My insomnia has been playing up real bad recently and I’m trying to juggle a lot of things at the moment. I set so much goals for myself that I think I need to slow down a little and practice the art of balance in ALL areas of my life. So once again, please do forgive me 🙂

As of January the 23rd I have officially hit the big 25 (woop woop)

I still look like 17 though so it’s all good lol.

Ribs, chips, fried calamari, onion rings, coleslaw…It really went down lol – Check my Instagram picture to see what took place 😉

Anyhoo,

Today I wanted to talk about Patience as it’s a word that we have all faced before and will continue to face throughout the duration of our lives.

And that my people brings me to this week QOTW:

“Patience is self control over a long period of time”

images

Me and impatience use to hang  out together as if we were best friends lol. No kidding right, I use to be so impatient that I wanted things instantly. I mean, don’t get me wrong – I was willing to put the work in to get what I wanted, it’s just that I always wanted it NOW NOW NOW!

Being a personal trainer I come across many people who want their dream physique instantaneously. It’s understandable though – The world we live in now, 90% (if not more) of the population want things done yesterday.

Out of that 90%:

45% are willing to put in the work

45% just want it by any means necesarry

I am going through a stage in my life now where I am consciously practising “The art of Patience” and boy it’s not a easy game…

I’m currently working on a product for the fitness industry and have been working on it since June 2013.

You can’t believe the patience I have had to learn over the last 7 months. My heart just wants to release the product to everyone but there has been so much legal work, paper work and ups and downs to go through that I have had no choice but to be patient. It’s been a critical life lesson for me not only for future business ventures but also other areas of my life.

~Everyone has the ability to be patient~

However, some are better at exercising patience over others. In order to work on being patient you have to first be conscious about your level and ability to be patient in the first place.

I kid you not, my life has improved SIGNIFICANTLY since I decided to work on my patience and my level of intolerance.

I used to get aggravated just by sitting in the traffic. Some might say that’s normal but I don’t want to follow the norm. It makes no sense being aggravated over something which you have no control over. Think about that…

abu-bakr-siddiq-quote-on-patience

I find that when you become more patient life seems to just flow. I talk a lot about the flow of life because I have found that the flow is accessible to EVERYONE.

Sadly, some choose not to go with the flow  or simply aren’t aware of it’s presence.

I have made it my job to help others find this flow as I want everyone to be happy…

Simples!

From my own experience I can understand why being patient “appears” to be hard. When we are practicing patience we have to also learn to let go a little.

So within practising patience also comes “The art of letting go”.

images

There’s a difference between letting go and giving up, allow me to explain…

Letting go is knowing that you are still working on your goal but not obsessing with it so to speak.

Giving up is simply that…Giving up!

Knowing and establishing the difference is vital before you can see improvement.

When I first stated learning to let go I felt as if I was going crazy as I had conditioned myself to “obsess” where a goal was concerned.

Let me give you an example – If you are doing a 90 day challenge to drop 14lbs but you get to day 90 and have only lost 9lbs, the average person would get angry with themselves and start with the negative self talk…You start telling yourself:

“I knew you couldn’t do it, just give up” OR

“Don’t worry that you didn’t make it, your a failure anyway” OR

“At least we tried, might as well go back to eating crap”

But you know better right…

Instead, exercise patience, loving yourself and say:

“Well, I done everything I could to loose the 14lbs and it didn’t happen in 90 days…

O well, at least I’m on track to losing another 5lbs to get to a total weight loss 14lbs…

Hmm, I’m a lot closer than I was before aren’t I…

Plus, I look better, feel better and half of the hard work is done…”

Hug yourself at this point, feel good about yourself for all your hard work and keep on pushing!

You see, humans don’t think like that – We beat ourselves up and for what???

~ENOUGH IS ENOUGH~

url

Are you still beating yourself up in 2014?

A balance of monitoring your thoughts & being patient will improve your life drastically – Use me as an example if you don’t anyone around you that has tried.

If you’ve been following my blog over the last 18 months you will know that everything I share with you is from my own personal experience and straight from the heart.

The sooner we start loving ourselves and stop with the negative self talk the sooner we will all be happy and living the lives that we all deserve AND want to live.

HAPPINESS, JOY, SMILES AND LOVE – Why else would you want to live?

Have a great week and keep your head up people.

~Love as always~

Quotes by: Dr Malachi Z York & David Richards – Time for a change

happy

Hello My Good People,

How are we all doing today?

20 days into the New Year already…

Before you know it, we will all be talking about summer, beaches, 6 packs, leg’s, bums & tums… just you watch 🙂

Speaking of summer, I wouldn’t mind some hot sun on my skin now…The UK is FREEZING!

I’m not sure what the weather is like where you are right now but if it’s anything like the UK, let’s just say I feel your pain lol

Anywhoo…

For this weeks “Quote of the Week” I decided to look at my currentt situation in life and everyone else’s around me and I came to the conclusion that it doesn’t matter who you are, how wealthy you are, how much money you have in the bank or who you know…

WE ALL FEEL PAIN

This got me thinking….

You see, pain comes in different shapes, colours and sizes. No “one” pain is the same as another.

Pain may be different for you compared to someone else – The fact of the matter is we all feel it…

We can experience pain in a number of forms.

Pain can be felt from falling over and scraping our knee to feeling pain of loosing a loved one.

We may feel pain from loosing a job or from splitting up with a partner.

After viewing and thinking about pain with a new pair of eye’s and some updated 2014 thoughts, I’ve now adopted a new approach to the topic which I’d like to share with you all.

And that my friends leads me to today’s QOTW:

“Pain is merely another sign that you are alive. Therefore, give thanks when in pain”

pain

Before I continue, let’s quickly look over the definition of the word “Pain”

1) Highly unpleasant physical sensation caused by illness or injury.

2) Mental suffering or distress.

So for me to turn around and say “Give Thanks” to the little bugger may seem crazy right?

Allow me to continue…

People view death as a taboo subject when in actuality it is a natural part of life. In fact, it is within the cycle of life and will happen to ALL of us eventually whether we like it or not. Yep, that’s right, we ain’t gonna be here forever….

(Which is why you need to enjoy life to the MAX)

Plant’s, Insect’s, Animals – We all go through the cycle…

If we weren’t alive in this physical body we’ve been blessed with, how would we experience anything…including pain?

Allow me ask you something on a personal level to help validate my point…

Are you grateful for life? 

If yes:

What are you grateful for?

If you answered no, ask yourself:

Where does the lack of gratefulness stem from?

Deep reflection and pondering upon this question can do 1 of 2 things:

1) Help you to clearly see how blessed your life truly is

2) Bring up a lot of hidden emotions, demons, beliefs and thought patterns that you didn’t even know you had hiding in your sub conscious mind

If you answered no, I have an exercise for you below which WILL help you move from a state of UN-gratefulness to Gratefulness  if followed everyday (notice the capital G)

(NOTE) This exercise is wonderful to perform even if you are in a state of Gratefulness. It’s a simple exercise you don’t have to head down to the gym for either…

bw-grateful

(Things I am Grateful for in my Life AKA My Way to Gratefulness Exercise)

1) Reflect upon your life and others around you who are worst of than you are – Just watch the news if you’re struggling…

2) Buy a small note book and pen

3) Label the note book “Things I am Grateful for in my Life” – It has to be this title!

4) Write down 5 things that your grateful for EVERYDAY

5) Read over ALL of your notes everyday, 5 times a day (At least once upon waking & once before going to sleep – This will help to re-wire your sub conscious mind)

NOW, I can’t tell you when to stop this exercise but your Heart can…

Tune into your body and listen to your own guidance system..We all have one. We just haven’t been made aware of it or have learned how to tune into it properly.

I find writing down what we are grateful for put’s us in a place of “Feeling Good” and helps us to to go with the natural flow of life.

feelinggratitude

I don’t believe that our experience in life was meant to be “hard” or “painful” so to speak. I believe we are to feel & experience these emotions to not only master them but to also be able to identify them upon being faced with them again in our lives.

Seeing how we react to the same emotions after our previous lessons with them is like a test, a Life test so to speak…

So…What does pain have to do with being grateful then?

Well, I find that once we are truly happy and grateful in life and have found our purpose and direction….

THEN and only then can we start to look to pain as an indicator for being alive and grateful…Make sense?

It really is a new way of thinking. A new way for that works for me and hopefully works for you.

I use my pain as motivation and so can you….

I turn negative into positive and so can you….

Before I leave, allow me to share a poem with you I wrote (well sort of a poem) ENJOY!

Hello Hello Hello my wonderful people 🙂

How are we all doing today?

Christmas is around the corner and I know the binge eating has started already after speaking to some of you LOL. As long as you’re happy and enjoying life it’s all good – But do be careful that you don’t go TOO overboard as that bloating feeling is never nice and the weight gain really ISN’T cool – I’m sure we’d all agree on that right 🙂

Anyway, how quickly has time flown. We’re rapidly approaching the start of 2014 whilst simultaneously approaching end of 2013. Did you all have a successful 2013? I sure hope you did. If you didn’t, it’s not the end of the world and you should never be too hard on yourself – What’s the point?

2014 is a new start for new success, new money, new memories, new love, new friends and new clothes if you so desire LOL

But on a serious note, if you didn’t achieve what you wanted to achieve this year, reflect upon why that is?

Really sit down in silence and ask yourself some questions – You may find that talking to yourself a few times a week actually helps you to put things into perspective and helps to give you clarity as to what it is you really want from life.

It’s a big misconception that talking to yourself deems you as mad – I actually talk to myself aloud for at least 20 minutes a day (by myself of course LOL) and it has helped me to work out situations, dilemma’s and major break throughs that I wouldn’t of arrived to had I not been speaking with myself.

With that being said, allow me to share with you todays “Quote of the week” from my main man Will Smith – Who remembers Fresh Prince 🙂

“No matter how hard things may seem, don’t get down, and don’t give up. The clouds will clear, and there are brighter days ahead”

A lot of the quotes I share with you are along the lines of “Not Giving Up” and that is because as humans, we tend to give up easily upon being faced with a difficult situation.

We all like the easy way out as the easy way out is the easiest option of course. I mean, it is easy to quit, give up or stop trying (which are all essentially the same thing) because then we can tell our minds:

“Well at least we didn’t fail right…”

WRONG!

By quitting, we enrol onto the course at the “Failure Academy” and are well on our way to a masters degree/PhD in Quitology – Am I right or am I wrong?

When we quit, it is planted into our sub conscious minds and it remains there as emotional blockage until we do something about it. We continue with our everyday lives carrying this blockage at a cellular level tricking ourselves about the whole thing – Who can identify with this?

We feel down when things don’t go our way and then we get even more stressed when we quit. So in theory, what we have just done here is created a vicious cycle for ourselves.

I call this “The cycle of doom”

When we are in the cycle of doom or in the picture frame metaphorically speaking, it’s inevitably impossible for us to see the bigger picture – But we must remember, where there is dark, there is light (even if you can’t see it at the time)

Saying that, I then ask you this:

If a situation you deem as bad helps you to become a stronger individual, can it still be deemed as bad?

You see, whilst in the “bad” situation, you are in the picture so to speak, and again, this makes it difficult for you to see the bigger picture.

Allow me to share a quick exercise with you all which helps me at times like this.

Paradigm Exercise

1) Close your eyes and imagine yourself very clearly in the picture and all that’s going on around you

2) Imagine yourself now stepping out the picture whilst holding onto the frame for guidance and support

3) Now, imagine yourself again very clearly looking at the picture you just climbed out of, however, you can still see yourself in the image (the situation)

What this does is puts you into what I call “3rd person perspective” and allows you to analyse the situation from another perspective than how you’d normally view it – Very Powerful Exercise!

As humans, it’s in our nature to be hard on ourselves – Where did this even come from?

What has being hard on yourself ever caused you but grief, headache and possibly a degree of self hate (Would you be hard on a loved one – Your child, parent or lover?)

I’ve said it many times before but I’ll say it again – There is a difference between being critical of thy self and being down right hard (sub-conscious abuse I call it)

I have discovered the poison in my mind and I am consciously working with it and on it EVERYDAY. The sad thing is right, a lot of people live their lives this way and never work at ridding the poison of the mind (most likely due to their lack of awareness of it all) which is why I combine motivational quotes with my personal experience to hopefully help some of you who may be going through what I’m currently going though. They say, help others and you indirectly help yourself – So true!

I’ve discovered that Life is a game of polarity – What do I mean exactly?

Well…

We appreciate good times for we know bad times

We know happiness as we’ve felt sadness

We know of ying and yang

And we recognise darkness as we are moving through the light of Life 🙂

Life is a game of polarities and to master the game, we must learn to integrate both the polarities…

Positive vs Negative 

Key points for today

* Keep loving yourself as being harsh for making mistakes isn’t loving yourself

* NEVER GIVE UP

* Step out the picture frame every now and then (See my blog post on 3rd person perspective where I go more into the subject)

* Talk to yourself like you would a Guru/Master Teacher or God (If you are religious that is)

* CONSCIOUSLY ENJOY LIFE AS LIFE IS ENJOYING YOU

RECOGNISE THAT YOU ARE LIFE ITSELF AND THAT WHATEVER CREATED YOU ALSO MADE YOU A CREATOR OF LIFE – DON’T LET THESE WORDS GO OVER YOUR HEAD!

I love you all

Hello Hello Hello,
How is everybody doing out there. I hope you’re all doing well and loving the brighter side of life 🙂
I’m currently 3 days into my 90 day diet leading up to the WBFF European championships so my carbs have dropped quite a bit but I’m looking forward to seeing how I can change my body again in 90 days (A separate post to come)
Other than that I’m all well. I’m trying to practice what I teach to others by getting as much as I can out of life everyday whilst I’m alive and this has led me on a direct route to happiness. You may want to try this route…
Anyways, let’s get into the good stuff and what you came here for. This weeks quote is:
“Always do your best. What you plant now, you will harvest later”
I’m a strong believer in this quote here. It totally makes sense to me in all aspects of my life now. The work that we put in today will pay off at some point down the line (Never try to figure out when though – this is key)
People easily get discouraged when they do something and don’t see instant results. We live in a society where everyone wants things to manifest instantly. I too can be like this sometimes and maybe even yourself or someone you know. I suppose it’s human nature.
It’s not a bad thing I guess but patience is essential if we want to strike the right balance between doing and receiving/seeing.
Once you understand the Law of patience and the Law of time, it becomes easier to identify when you’re not being patient and as a result causing yourself unnecessary stress and anxiety.
A perfect example of the time/patience principle is when looking at training/eating and seeing results.
How many times have you heard of or even come across yourself, someone who hasn’t stuck to clean eating/smart training. They quit half way through a new program because they haven’t learnt to exercise patience properly. I believe this happens  not due to laziness or lack of will power but the lack of education or knowledge even on preparing the mind. What do I mean by this?
You see, when you start a new program that last let’s say 12 weeks plus, you need to change your state of mind.
“Change starts from within”
It’s like going into a battle thinking happy thoughts…It doesn’t make sense does it. If someone is going into a battle, there state of mind should be geared towards war and all things related (well you think that would be the case anyway). The same applies to dieting/training or any other aspect of your life.
Metaphorically speaking, let’s say you start at point A in the alphabet and the goal you set was at point Z. Every clean meal you eat & every training session you complete with 100% effort you move up the alphabet getting closer to Z. Can you see that by remaining strong and sticking to the program you get closer and closer to Z every time even if you can’t see Z ahead of you.
Essentially what your doing here is planting your seed at point A and watering it everyday travelling up the alphabet until you get to point Z (reaching your goal).
Balance is needed between taking everyday as it comes (enjoying the journey) and seeing the bigger picture when you get disheartened half way through. EVERYTHING IS BALANCE.
So remember folks:
“Always do your best. What you plant now, you will harvest later”
Peace and Love to you all and may your harvest come to you in abundance.
Have a great week and don’t let no one stop you from smiling 🙂
NAMASTE

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.

Image

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

Quotes by:  George Bernard Shaw/David Richards

tony-robbins-setting-goals-is-the-first-step-in-turning-the-invisible-into-the-visible1

Let me start off by saying, Summer is finally here 🙂

Everyone’s happier, the evenings are longer and brighter, flowers are blooming, birds are singing and the positive vibes are flowing. I’m here to keep the vibes flowing with another quote of the week and to provoke some more thought.

“Setting goals is the first step in turning the invisible into the visible”

Does this make sense to you? At one point it didn’t for me but now I fully get it. Let’s explore a bit deeper and hopefully I can make it clear for some who may not understand.

Everything starts of with a thought. You are where you are in life at this very moment because of your thoughts. You are in control of  your thoughts, you and no one else.

Through your  thoughts, you can decide the next step you take on this journey called life.

Through your thoughts you can determine how you want to look, who you want to be, where you want to be, what you want to achieve, how much money you’d like to earn, who you choose to marry, what car you drive, how you treat people, how you feel day to day, reaching for a snack, going to the gym, down to reading this blog post at this very moment…

Can you see how powerful thought is?

What is thought though? Have you really asked yourself that question? Where does it come from? Can it be measured? If psychics can really read our minds, do they know what thoughts we’ll come up with next? If so, that leads me to question free will? Do plants have thoughts? If so, what do they  think about?

We as individuals can see our thoughts in our minds but we can’t show them to people like you would a video on Youtube.

It’s almost as if thought exist in another realm somewhere and in order for us to bring them into manifestation on this physical 3d plane we need to take a number of “strategic  steps” for people to see what we can see in our minds. In order for people to see our thoughts, believe in our dreams and truly experience them with us we have to first know that it is possible.

martin-luther-king-jr-day-L-xGOagM1Martin Luther King had a dream, a thought, an idea, a clear visual image in head which at one point we couldn’t see. But he took it upon himself to take a number of “strategic steps” to make that dream a reality. To make the once invisible thought become a visible reality.

He worked hard to share his vision with us and that’s what we have to do with our great idea’s, big dreams, ambitions and aspirations. Life is limitless, but by making the wrong choices we limit ourselves.

Say for example a guy watches a documentary about Bodybuilding and loves the lifestyle they live. He loves all the eating, the sleeping, competing, training twice a day and all the aspects that comes with that lifestyle and decides to himself:

“You know what, I want to become a Bodybuilder” – He leaves himself open to two choice. He could:

A) Just leave the idea as a thought, you know, a nice little idea in the back of his mind.Never taking action to make that dream a goal, he limits himself never really living to his full potential. One day however, he look’s back on his life once he’s settled down with his wife and kids and thinks “What if”… Don’t be a what if-er. I’m going to cover what if-er’s, buts, maybes and regret’s real soon as that’s as that’s an interesting topic within it itself. His second choice is:

B) Set a goal and make that thought become a reality (turn invisible into the visible). Do whatever it takes to not only become a Bodybuilder but the best damn Bodybuilder there is. (This reminds me, I must upload some Arnold Schwarzenegger motivational videos)

arnold-schwarzenegger-9a

Thought is like electricity… We can’t see it but we know it exist. Just look around you. The world we live in is built around thought. You still don’t believe me…

The car you or someone you know drives…A load of people gathered round together and thought up a bunch of ideas  before that car came into existence. The design of the car, the price it cost, they also came up with it’s name whether it be BMW or Ford, it’s logo, the models that will be available and a whole list of other stuff. They put it on the market which then made it available for you to purchase and drive. This process doesn’t “Just Happen” 

Come to think about it, nothing ever “Just Happens”.

The shopping  centre you and I shop from…It didn’t just appear one day out from out of the skies…It was through thought how it came into manifestation.

The same applies to movies, TV shows, commercials and even music. A singer/songwriter for example usually goes through an experience and through that experience they get a thought/idea about a song to write, record that song and then release it for our listening ears to share the experience. I wasn’t there but I know Katie Perry kissed a girl and liked it very much 🙂

mzi.xfxqwgbx.1200x1200-75

Even the tough situations we face…it’s through our thoughts that we decide the outcome. Do we get knocked down and stay down or do we get back up and keep fighting. The choice is yours.

When this concept was first brought to me, I had difficulty understanding it (many people do).

But as time goes on, if you become more aware of your thoughts and consciously monitor your thinking, you start to realise that you literally shape your future and the outcome of ALL situations.

I invite you all to try this an experiment for one week as I don’t want you to believe the information I give you but would rather you go research and try it out for yourselves. What do you have to loose? If it doesn’t work for you it cost nothing but a little effort.

To believe means to be-lied to which is a state of ignorance – Accepting something you cannot prove is ignorant which is why I say research it and find the truth for yourself. Once accepted as truth for yourself you are no longer in that state of ignorance.

If this information resonates with you in any way, shape or form or you gain something from the experiment after a week, you can then build on from your experience and start taking REAL control over your life.

The choice is yours for the taking…

Have a great week guys and Love to you all

Hey Guys,

How is everyone doing this week? I hope you’re all good and enjoying life to the fullest doing whatever it is you want to be doing everyday.

It’s the first week of July already, it won’t be long until they start advertising Christmas, just you watch LOL.

Anyway, I’m back again to send out some more positive vibes and motivation and hope to lift someone’s spirit who may be going through some hard times right now.

While searching for this weeks quote, I found the below quote and knew it was the one I had to share this week. Not only do I live by this quote, but I feel it has a nice message to it that anyone can relate to. Without further ado, here goes…

“Set your sights high, the higher the better. Expect the most wonderful things to happen, not in the future but right now. Realize that nothing is too good. Allow absolutely nothing to hamper you or hold you up in any way”.

I’ve always believed and said to people, aim for the stars and if you don’t get to the stars, at least you’ll touch the sky.

Have you ever found that you’ve had a goal or a dream, shared it with someone, and there and then they’ve crushed it within a heart beat? I don’t know about you, but I have and it doesn’t feel nice. To be fair, a lot of the time I don’t reckon their intentionally trying to put me down, but their level of risk taking is not on the same level as mine.

You may often find this with friends and family and easily take offence, but from their perspective, I think most of the time there just trying to help and maybe don’t believe the risk your willing to take is realistic. This is why it’s VITAL that you fully believe in yourself.

You see, only you know what you are capable of and no one else. Eric Thomas taught me when I went go see him a few months back that, I should keep my dreams to myself and I recommend you do the same. WHY?

BECAUSE YOUR DREAMS ARE TOO BIG FOR OTHER PEOPLE!

What we need to remember is, no one is going to believe in us if we don’t even believe in ourselves.

Take a bank investor for example. If I went to him/her with a business plan but I wasn’t 100% confident that the business would succeed, why on earth would they even consider to give me the investment? If I don’t believe the business will do well, what reason do they have to believe it will do well? There’s a 90% chance I will leave empty handed.

Take the same scenario, however this time round I’m fully prepared, have all my numbers together and fully believe the business is profitable – What are the chances I’ll get the loan now?

I think you’ll find for one, they’d take me seriously and two, even if I didn’t get the loan, just by changing my mind state to a place of belief and being prepared, my chances soared 10 fold.

We gotta be realistic here guys, you really have to know and believe in yourself first before others can place any sort of hope in you.

Saying that though, once you’ve established a belief system within yourself and accepted that anything is possible (proving your willing to put in the work) it then becomes easier for you to sell your dream to people.

NOTE – You will always get some people who reply with negativity upon sharing a goal or dream, in situations like this, just brush off your shoulders and keep proceeding forward.

I always preach to folks that no one can stop you from doing what you want to do but you and feel I should elaborate a little on this using myself as an example real quick.

Back in January when I entered the Body Transformation challenge at my gym, I told myself flat out that I had won. I visualised how I was going to look after the 90 days, I visualised how I was gonna train throughout the 90 days and I visualised my reaction upon finding out I had won. I may sound crazy, but visualisation is a very powerful tool that deserves its own blog post.

431826_603993869625935_1518517438_n

Anyway, 90 days later and KAPOW – It was in the bag. Throughout the journey NO ONE was going to stop me but me…I mean how could they.

No one can’t diet for me but me. No one can train for me but me. On top of that, no one can get 6-8 hours of sleep a night for me but ME – Only I can do the above for me and NO ONE ELSE!

If I didn’t maintain a strict diet, it would of been ME stopping ME from getting the win. If I didn’t train 5-6 times a week in the gym, again it would of been ME stopping ME from getting the win. Can you see my point here? This is what I mean when I say NO ONE can stop you.

“Expect the most wonderful things to happen, not in the future but right now”.

To me, if we live in the past we are just dwelling. If we live in the future, we are not enjoying the now, the present (which is a gift). To live in the now is difficult for a lot of folks and I used to be one of them. Since secondary school I’ve always found myself goal setting and thinking about “5 years down the line” or “In the next few years I’m going to do this or do that etc”

Now don’t get me wrong, THINKING and planning for the future is good, however, constant LIVING in the future is a whole different story.

Living in the future doesn’t allow us to enjoy the present (the now). We can easily find ourselves obsessing on tomorrow. But then tomorrow comes and we obsess about the day next, then the next day, then the day after that and soon enough we find that although we have reached our goal, at no point did we stop to enjoy the days leading up to that goal.

So what happens is, you find yourself in a situation where you have accomplished your goal, a goal that you’ve worked hard for, however, you don’t have the happiness you imagined would be associated with your new success.

Don’t do this to yourself guys, enjoy everyday and try to live in the now, the present, the gift.

If you find that you don’t currently live in the present (the now) and your always dwelling on the past or obsessing on the future, please may I ask that you take some time to reflect upon your life. I think that you’ll find living for today,THINKING about tomorrow, but learning from the past will put you in a much happier state of mind which will essentially lead to a better overall experience of life.

I call it a gift I suppose as it’s a play on words. You give someone a gift (a present) but to be alive at this time present is a gift within itself as many people have transitioned but you are still here now, alive and kicking and able to read this.

Be grateful for everyday you are alive no matter what as there is ALWAYS someone more worst of than you and it’s only when you compare your life to say someone in a 3rd world country that you can really appreciate life and count your blessing seeing things from a different perspective.

I hope I have provoked some thought within some of you and helped you to see that life ain’t so bad after all…

Anyway, Ima wrap it up as I have a long day ahead tomorrow and need some beauty sleep.

(You don’t look this fine just using coco butter LMAO – I’m only joking)

Have a great week guys and I’ll be back soon.

Peace and Love

~NAMASTE~
