HAPPY MONDAY MY WONDERFUL PEOPLE

It’s a brand new week and a new opportunity to get some new things started in our lives. What an amazing opportunity we all have before us. We have the power to steer our lives in the right direction – But what direction do you chose to steer your life in?

If we lack MOTIVATION, we have no chance of moving forward as MOTIVATION is the driving force which keeps us pushing…Would you agree?

Secretly, MOTIVATION is the driving force behind most successful people in our world today…

Research successful people, and you will find that most, if not all of them are driven by:

MOTIVATION + GOALS = SUCCESS

If you want to get in shape but lack MOTIVATION, the chances are pretty “slim” that you’ll ever reach your goal…Would you agree?

This is why staying MOTIVATED is so important in our day to day life if we are to ever reach success.

How many people do you know in 2015 that deem themselves as successful?

You see, we live in a society where people put themselves down and find it hard to love themselves even…

This combined with self doubt and low self esteem leads to a road of misery and we DO NOT have to live like this!

I don’t want to deviate too much y’all, so I will leave it as that today.

But learn to love yourselves people, learn to smile more and keep MOTIVATED

You will find that your life start’s to improve dramatically 🙂

Roll Safe and Let’s Keep Making This Thing Happen

MUCH LOVE

The-will-to-win-the-desire-to-succeed-the-urge-to-reach-your-full-potential...-these-are-the-keys-that-will-unlock-the-door-to-personal-excellence.

Hello my wonderful people,

How are we all doing on this beautiful day. I hope everyone is doing well and making stuff happen. I wanted to do a Motivation Monday today, but I promised to do a QOTW and felt in the mood to write one. I’ve found quotes to be rather useful to help us get through our day to day grind. They work as powerful mood up lifters when we can sometimes be feeling down. I find myself reading quotes a few times a day and meditating on the messages that they bring.

Today I wanted to share a quote with you that resonates with me on all levels. So without further ado, I bring to you today’s quote of the week:

The will to win, the desire to succeed, the urge to reach your full potential… these are the keys that will unlock the door to personal excellence.

Now, as humans, we all have what it takes to make our dreams a reality – EVERY SINGLE ONE OF US!

But we have been faced with many limitations since birth. Limitations can come in many different forms:

  1. Our Thought Process On Life
  2. The Self Image We Hold For Ourselves
  3. Statements which don’t hold true i.e – “We Can’t, It’s Not Possible,You Don’t have what it takes, It’s Going To Take To Long” and things around that nature

So before we venture on our journey to success, we first have to believe in ourselves 100% of the time. Using affirmations can help greatly:

Affirmations

daily-affirmations

Use the affirmations above and affirmations such as:

I Am Powerful

I Am Strong

I have 100% Confidence

Affirmations used daily can help you to stay focused, on track with goals and can help to bring about personal awareness (tuning into your deeper self) You can even do a Google search on affirmations and the results page will bring back loads of goodies that you can print out and carry around with you (or stick on your walls around your house)

Now, let me ask you individually through the screen…

Do you have the will to win, the desire to succeed, the urge to reach your full potential?

Whatever it is that you want from life, you have to want it badly enough to go and get it – Because believe me, it’s not going to get up and just come strolling along to you.

You see, we all have what it takes to be winners – But are you putting in the work to be a winner?

Do you have the desire to succeed? A lot of people say they want success, but if they really wanted it they would go out and chase it. Some of you like the idea of success but don’t believe it can be ascertained, so you just dream about it all day long and live in fantasy land…

This all changes today!

Today is the day that you start unlocking your full potential. And I’m happy that I can help you to do so. But trust me on this one, you have to be willing to put in the ground work first.

Adopting a winners mind set doesn’t just happen over night. It takes at least 33 consecutive days before your subconscious mind adjust to the re-programming.

Unlocking Your Full Potential

your-full-potential

OK, before we move on – Let me ask you another question:

What does it even mean for  you to unlock your full potential?

The beauty of life is that we are all individuals and will all inevitably answer that question differently.

To me, unlocking my full potential meant a number of things:

  1. Writing – A few years ago I never knew that I was good at writing until I created this website and found I had natural writing abilities. Unlocking my potential within the realms of writing meant for me that I was to explore and write about different topics. This was one of the ways I could see for me to grow as a writer.
  2. Music – My hidden secret is that I am a Musician in my spare time. I am a deep music lover and took the plunge to learn how to create music back in 2011. Like writing, I am naturally good at it and have been learning how to make House music on the weekends. I know that to get better I have to keep practising. And by practising I will always be that one step closer to reaching my full potential within the realms of music.
  3. Bodybuilding – For those of you who have been following my journey, you would have seen that I use to be the chubby boy with no abs. But I knew that with the right nutrition and the right training that I could excel and reach close to my bodies full potential.

The beautiful thing with the body though is that we can reach a state of what we call perfection and still always work at perfecting. It’s a never ending game and the same could be said with striving for success in life. Do we ever stop?

Back to you though, your potential and the question above… 

What does it mean for you to unlock your full potential?

standard_523

I’ll help you to get the ball rolling:

  1. What are you good at?
  2. What do you do in your spare time?
  3. What do you enjoy doing?
  4. What would you like to improve?

The above questions can help you to look at your life in a broader light and bring about new energy in terms of your thinking. Once you have some fresh perspective, set some new goals to help get you going on your journey to personal excellence. You don’t have to wait for a New Year or for Monday morning to get started. There is no better time than NOW to get going!

If you are reading this right now YOU ARE A WINNER and never let anyone tell you other wise!

It’s been great catching up with you all and I’ll be back sooner than you know with some more of that good stuff 😉

Take it easy folks 😀

Much Love

David Richards

Quotes by: Confucius/David Richards

Hello My Good People,

How are we all doing on this fine day. Summer is now officially here and the BBQ’s have started, the tops are coming off and the music is pumping out of those car stereos.

Welcome Back Summer 🙂

I hope you are all doing extremely well, sticking to your goals, enjoying life and trying to live stress free.

I know this can be difficult at times though as we do live in a negative world – But surround yourselves with good people, stop watching the media (it show’s nothing but negativity – would you agree) And do activities which brings you both joy and happiness. I would say this is a great start to cutting of some of the negativity in our lives.

My energy as of late has been towards writing my book/e-book that I am putting a lot of effort into at the moment. Also, I have invested in a microphone and I’m working on creating program packs for you guys to listen to as MP3 files – Great for listening to first thing in the morning, whilst driving to work, at the gym, whilst relaxing or before bed.

Some of the topics I look to cover will include: Motivation, Goal setting, Wealth, Health and Happiness – The basics for any human being to be happy, successful and to live a life with true value.

Today is just a quick post though about “Worrying, Stress, and Clearing Your Mind”

As a people, we tend to worry and over think and this naturally leads us to stress. And as we all know, stress can lead to a number of things:

Stress-free-zone

Say No To Stress

1) Anxiety

2) Depression

3) Lack of Sleep – Lack of sleep within itself causes health issues

4) Physical Illness

5) Poor Mood/State of Mind

So it makes sense that we do all we can do to try and not worry and over think right?

We need to be honest with ourselves and ask the Important question:

“What actually causes us stress”

Only you can ask this question to yourself…

Set aside some time and with a pen and some paper if necessary and write down that which is bothering you…It makes it so much easier and at least you can go back to what you have written down for reflection at a later date…

Once you find the root cause of what is bothering you, then and only then can you slowly start to work through the issue(s) – These exercises don’t work over night. Be patient with yourself and take your time.

“Stress could come from anything in life – Your 9-5 JOB (Just Over Broke), Family Life, Relationship Issues, Low Income or the Simple Act of Over Thinking”

Since I started practising Meditation, my thoughts have been a lot more calm and I am able to deal with day to day situations a lot easier. Meditation isn’t necessarily what you see in the movies though…

You know what I’m on about – Leg’s crossed, Aummm chanting sounds in the background and people dressed as a Buddhist or Monks… Don’t believe the hype my people LOL.

Meditation can simply be closing your eyes for 10-15 minutes a day, either sitting or lying down and just focusing on your breathing. There is scientific studies showing how Meditation works on the Human Anatomy, and I will share this with y’all if interested. You’d be surprised how many benefits there actually are once you do some research on the subject. Some key points on the benefits of Meditation to get you started are:

Meditation

focus-control

1) NEUROSCIENTISTS have found that, after just 11 HOURS of meditation, practitioners had structural changes in the part of the brain involved in monitoring our FOCUS and SELF CONTROL.

2) Research has found meditation to promote ‘DIVERGENT THINKING’ a type of thinking that allows many new ideas to be generated – Talk About Ultimate Creativity.

3) Mindfulness also affects awareness and the FILTERING out of other mental processes during creative tasks.

Worrying is Like Walking Around With An Umbrella On A Sunny Day 

I kid you not, the woman on the TV just said the above quote to her friend on an Australian cooking show that I’ve got running in the background and I just had to post it in here – What a coincidence or was that meant to happen? Hmmmmm.

Without deviating though, worrying can be avoided and this is something I tell my Mum all the time. If you knew me a few years back, you would know that I used to worry…

“A LOT”

But life wasn’t productive for me back then and I wasn’t enjoying my life like we all should be…

So I researched, bought books about stress and anxiety, watched videos, went to seminars and years later, here I am helping others with what once use to be my enemy…The beautiful cycle of life eh 😀

But listen to the irony which just came to me – We all want to be happy and worry free, yet we are the ones creating worry for ourselves…Meditate on that for a moment…

In reality, no one can create worry for you but yourself…Have you ever looked at it like that?

I have a program that I’m creating to help people stop worrying which I’m saving for my book/e-book, but here’s a step by step guide below which I think is genius to help with this issue:

keep-calm-and-say-no-to-stress-4

Learning to Postpone Worrying:

  1. Create a “worry period.” Choose a set time and place for worrying. It should be the same every day (e.g. in the living room from 5:00 to 5:20 p.m.) and early enough that it won’t make you anxious right before bedtime. During your worry period, you’re allowed to worry about whatever’s on your mind. The rest of the day, however, is a worry-free zone.
  2. Postpone your worry. If an anxious thought or worry comes into your head during the day, make a brief note of it on paper and postpone it to your worry period. Remind yourself that you’ll have time to think about it later, so there’s no need to worry about it right now. Save it for later and continue to go about your day.
  3. Go over your “worry list” during the worry period. Reflect on the worries you wrote down during the day. If the thoughts are still bothering you, allow yourself to worry about them, but only for the amount of time you’ve specified for your worry period. If the worries don’t seem important any more, cut your worry period short and enjoy the rest of your day.

I could keep going, but this was only supposed to be a short post LOL – I just can’t help myself sometimes hehehe

I hope you have learned lot’s today, and have found both the video and blog post insightful.

Share with your friends, family and loved ones and let’s all make this world a better place day by day 🙂

Peace, Blessings, and Much Love To You All

Morning guys,

Thursday already – Time has definitely speeded up somehow LOL

I was thinking the other day that life is short and I’ll tell you why…

It feels like just the other day I was in secondary school and now I’m quickly approaching the age 30 (5 years give or take LOL) but never the less, I look back and think where has time flown…

I don’t know exactly where life is taking me, but I do know that I consciously make the effort everyday to help make tomorrow better than it was today by simply applying myself.

This mindset helps me to stay striving and pushing for better as I believe if I continue with this attitude for the next 5 years, my life path should be one filled with blessings and success.

They say, “You reap what you sow” so it makes sense to focus our attention on sowing continuously everyday in all aspects of our life so we continue reaping – Common sense right or is it?

I’ll leave you to think about that one….

Have another blessed day and keep shining like the star that you are…

David 🙂

This video right here has nearly 4 million hits and for a real good reason.

When I first watched the video, I was unemployed at the time and trying to find direction in my life. It gave me chills, brought a tear to my eyes and made me think real hard about what I wanted from life…

However, upon trying to dig deeper, I realised that I never knew what I wanted…

I felt lost, depressed and at the time I felt as if the future had nothing for me…I was heading down a slippery slope…

Through self talk, self analysis, taking a deeper look at myself, my skills and natural born talents, I have reached a point where I have finally found my life’s purpose…

~It’s only right to at least “try” and help the man who’s shoes I once wore~

Through finding that purpose, I now have direction and am able to help other find and identify theirs…

I love writing, helping people, educating others on health and nutrition and guiding them on looking after their bodies.

I love all things fitness related, music, art, science and the list goes on…Through self analysis, you can also tap into your deeper self.

The deeper self is where your emotions come from (But we will get into that another time)

I say everything happens for a reason as I was once the most unhealthiest person around with no knowledge on nutrition and had no one at the time to guide me and tell me that what I was doing to my body was wrong. I see others in the position I was once in and it’s only right to at least “try” and help the man who’s shoes I once wore…

However, sometimes you find you want to help someone more than they want to help themselves and in a situation as such, you have to leave them be…It will happen for them when the time is right…

A combination of knowing where you want to be in life combined with motivation, passion, persistence and the ability to be patient can take you down a wonderful path you had never anticipated…I am currently on that path…

I invite you to question yourself everyday and every aspect of your being as that’s the only way you are going to truly get to know yourself better and become more in tune with your body…

Question your thought’s, your emotions, your goals and your ego. Learn to identify with your true self and recognise that your true self know’s nothing but love and happiness and if you find you are not happy, feel loved or giving love, it’s likely that you’re not aligned with your true self.

In laymans terms, find thoughts that make you feel good no matter what…

I mean, why would you ever want to make yourselves feel bad – Does that even make sense?

Why would you create such negativity for yourself as an individual?

Most people I hope will resonate with this message in one way or another. It’s time we started truly loving ourselves and others around us and recognising we are all one…

I use to hear people say “we are all one” and thought it was a load of mumbo jumbo but I truly recognise now that we are all one as it’s the same energy keeping us all alive – You will understand this concept when the time is right for you…

By the way, when I say love others around you, that doesn’t mean love in the traditional sense as if being with a partner or love for a family member – But love as in an act of kindness or something as simple as smiling at that old lady down the street…

I see many lost souls, and all my heart want’s to do is help…

I love you all and hope you do not take my words lightly…

I thank Eric Thomas who helped me find direction in life and hopefully I can return the favour by reaching out to others…

Me & Eric Thomas - I've always wanted to meet him since watching his video on Youtube.
