Hey Guys,

I hope everyone is well, living life and making their dreams a reality.

I was just watching the above video on Youtube and had to share it with you lovely people 🙂

2015 UPDATE

Just to let y’all know, I’ve been busy behind the scenes writing my book and I’m about 50% complete 😉 I will do a free version to give you guys an insight. As stated before, it will be along the lines of self improvement, self motivation and living a better quality of life through changing your psyche and state of mind.

My goal is to help people live a happier life in anyway that I can.

I have to be honest though, I haven’t found it easy as I am now also working full time, currently through the process of moving home and sorting out some personal issues – But that is life…

I’ve also upgraded my Apple Mac Computer that has a HD camera for shooting Youtube videos for 2016 – I’ve always wanted my own Youtube channel and look forward to creating some footage along side this blog.

So lot’s of goodies in the pipe line my people…

P.S – Follow me on Facebook for daily updates, quotes and extra motivation – I’m trying to get to 10,000 likes before next Summer 😉

That’s me for today – Enjoy the video and keep making your dreams a reality.

Hello my good people,

I miss the weekly blogging, I can’t lie 😦

Today is just a quick update to let you all know that I am currently working on some new material which includes:

A number of Ebooks (Some free and some chargeable)

Dee’s Fitness Podcast (Based around my blog material)

A Youtube video channel of my own or with my sponsors (www.HurricaneMixx.com)

And I am currently working on my first official book which I would like to release at some point next year through Hay House Publishers (If it’s ready on time that is LOL)

Hence why I have been so quiet for so long…

I hope you are all doing well and you’re all achieving those goals that you set in January as promised…

I WILL BE CHECKING UP ON YOU LOL

Some great news before I go people…

I HAVE STARTED PUBLIC SPEAKING AS OF TODAY 😉

Wassup guys,

How are you all doing my wonderful people?

It’s been a little while since I posted an update and a crazy few weeks for me.

As some of you may already know if you follow me on Facebook, I fell into Cardiac arrest around 2 weeks ago and was out cold…

I’m quite lucky to be alive!

For reasons unknown, I can honestly say that what happened was rather random and not only a shock to me, but my family, friends and everyone around me…

I felt it necessary to let everyone know that I’m OK and still loving life 🙂

Today isn’t about a specific topic – I just feel the need to type and flow…

Thoughts

The recent event has thrown me into a state of deep reflection ever since…

I’m a firm believer that everything happens for a reason and that is the philosophy I live by…

I also believe that whatever the reason for something happening may not be seen/clear to us at the time.

Therefore, I let it be and continue on with life holding onto the gratitude and appreciation that I am  still able to breathe, continue experiencing happiness and making my dreams a reality.

When you face death and accept that it is a normal part of life, the fear of death disappears and you appreciate it for what it is…

A natural part of life…

I think as humans we view death in the wrong light and for a number of valid reasons (We won’t go to much into this subject today though)

Rather than mourn over the loss of someones life, I believe we should celebrate it. I know that if I did past away 2 weeks ago, I would of wanted everyone to celebrate…Not cry and be sad.

I was blacked out most of the time so mentally trying to recover at the moment isn’t as bad for me as it is for others.

New Reality

It’s really been an eye opener as to how much people care about me and brought into light a question for me to ask you guys:

Do you really know how much people love you?

Maybe you don’t as people tend to show appreciation “after” someone has passed away rather than whilst they are alive. Something to think about…

However, I feel exploring this question may help to change the way you see yourself as it has done for me.

I now ask myself:

“Why do people love you so much David and how did you not see it before”

We as a people do so much good in our lives but never see it the way others do. It’s as if we have a hard time appreciating our true value.

I feel this is down to the self image we have created for ourselves based of painful experiences (search for self image on this site as I have written an article about the topic)

For some reason, humans have a hard time embracing their greatness and all the wonderful things they have done for themselves and others – I’m thinking about my Mum as I type this…

Greatness vs Ego

I’ve also come to learn that people don’t give themselves the props they deserve as we live in  a society where embracing how good or great we are at something is seen as being “Egotistic” or “Big Headed” – There is a big problem here…

If you are great at making music for example, then you should be able to share this with people that you are GREAT at making music without feeling that you’ll come across as big headed or egotistic… Sadly that’s not the case.

For us to limit sharing our greatness due to the fear of what others think is quite absurd…Don’t you think?

At the young age of 25, I “know” what I am great at…

I am now focusing my energy on those areas of greatness to not only improve them but to continue sharing them with the rest of the world…

I share this with you in hope that you have found your greatness and if you haven’t then no need to worry – Just try to live in the present moment being grateful for what you DO have and flow with life rather than flowing against it.

The Flow of Life

life-flow-chart

To flow against life is to flow against what it is (The Present Moment)

Meaning: If something happens, you CANNOT change the fact that it has happened.

You have a choice as to how you react to what has happened, but you CANNOT change it.

For example – If you loose your phone on a night out, you can’t change the fact that the phone is now missing – It is what it is, whether you chose to accept it or not…

Most of the time in a given situation as such, people throw tantrums and hissy fits causing themselves much unnecessary pain.

Rather than making peace with what is, they think about what “could have been” had they done things differently…

ANY past situation you’ve faced, it’s irrelevant what you think you:

“SHOULD” have done

“COULD” have done OR

“WOULD” have done…It’s the past and cannot be changed I’m afraid…

Instead of focusing about that which cannot be changed, focus on how you can/will do things differently if ever faced with the same or similar situation…

Logically on all levels this makes sense!

Once people fully understand the above concept and start applying it, stress levels will decrease dramatically and the quality of your life WILL improve – I am confident of that.

Life vs Life

The term “Life is Short” couldn’t be any truer for me at this present moment.

I see life for what it is…lessons and experiences…

This is one of the  many reasons why I don’t waste time on negativity or things that are of no benefit/value to me.

This is why I practice forgiveness towards those who have hurt me in the past. Not for there benefit, but for me to be able to live in peace without harboring negative feelings/emotions.

My message is the same as before:

Enjoy life, question everything, be happy and try to do what it is that brings you ultimate joy.

Closing

I don’t know what path my life will take, none of us do. All we can do is our best and if our best doesn’t bring to us what we desire, we can keep trying or may choose to accept that it’s not within our destiny to have that which we dream of…Only you can make that decision!

Speaking of dreams though, I have started writing a book that I would like to release next year. One of my major life goals/dreams is to release a book along the lines of self development, motivation and positivity. I feel I have gone through my fair share of experiences and learning to be adept at creative writing.

Plus…

What do I have to loose 🙂

Pray for me that I release a best seller and I will pray for you that your dreams come through…

Love as always

Happy Monday Folks 🙂

How are we all doing on this fine Monday?

I see the motivational content is helping you chase your dreams and goals…

This really does fill me with joy and I’m glad I can help where I can.

Thank you for the emails and kind messages – It does mean a lot to me 🙂

My schedule is filling up thick and fast again but I have made a conscious effort to try and do at least ONE post a week. Lord knows I would write for a living but I haven’t found a way to make money from it YET…

I have many ideas and concepts for books I want to write, but I’m just waiting until I have some space on my time table to focus on writing a best seller (Put some good thoughts out there for me please…It cost you nothing 🙂

Anyhoo,

Let’s talk motivation as it seems to ALWAYS be a topic of conversation around me (And around you I’m sure)

Today I will talk about some methods in which you can use to help make that dream come true by staying motivated. I have discussed some of these methods before, but it’s vital that we go over them to ensure we have fully grasp the concept of what is required to utilise them for the great tools that they are.

So without further delay, let’s get stuck in…

5 Tools of Motivation

1) What is your why?

When we get half way through a goal, it’s easy to forget why we even started in the first place. Have you been in this situation before?

It gets to the point where you may sometimes think:
“This has become way to tiresome now, why am I even doing this again?

Sometimes we need that fuel to add to our fire and help us remember our “Why”.

This remembrance will help us to bring fourth that passion which got us started up in the first place. Always focus on your “Why” when you start to loose hope.

2) Visualise/Imagine

Since we were children we have been using our imaginations. Most people imagine the worst as we live in a fear based system but we should use our imaginations for positivity and to better our lives.

Imagine how good you will feel once you have gone through the pain and hustle of reaching your goal/dream.

A woman after 9 months goes through the pain of delivering a baby. However, once she has gone through that pain, she has the beauty and joy of a  new life that has delivered.

The same cane be said for when we are reaching for our dreams. We may (very likely) go through some pain and struggle, be prepared for it. However, once that pain has subsided, we can then look forward to our blessings and new joy in life.

Everything has a gestation period and has to go through a process before it comes to
fruition. Please remember that…

3) Set Way Points

Way point’s help you to track your progress over a period of time. There’s nothing worst than going through 90 days of struggle to reach a point where you feel like you haven’t achieved much because you can’t identify  with “how much you HAVE actually achieved”.

I find that a lot of the time, people have come so far in life from where they once were but choose to focus on where they are at present and complain that they are not where they WANT to be rather than focus on how far they’ve come…

Sound familiar…

Measure your progress and use it as motivation for how WELL you are actually doing…

That’s right…Big yourself up…It’s not ego, it’s claiming and reaping the happiness for what YOU DESERVE!

4) Share, Share, Share – Share with friends and family what you’re up too – There’s nothing more embarrassing than someone asking you 2 months down the line how your project is coming along for you to turn around and tell them:

“Yerrrr, about that….”

LOL

Stick to your word!

5) How will it improve your life?

Life is all about change and improvement – If you’re not moving, creating, expressing and loving what you do, what are you doing?

Usually, in order for us to change our life’s, it involves us having to change a current routine or to try/do something different – Leaving our comfort zones so to speak.

Upon our journey to success though, we will find MANY MANY SET BACKS.

But ask yourself:

How will not giving up improve my life?

If I keep going through the tough, will it be worth it?

By not giving up, can I improve others lives around me?

Sometimes our dreams/goals include others (Our children or spouse maybe)

So even though our focus is on self, we must remember the people around us that are also counting on us as we are very much needed in this life time (more than we may know)

Conclusion

I’m here for you guys and can see the potential in everyone collectively and individually…

Believe in yourself and know that you can make your dreams a reality if you say:

“Enough is enough – It’s my time”

I love you all

What’s up my wonderful people?

How are we all doing on this fine Monday?

I’m here to bring you some more motivation today as motivation is what keeps us going through rough times & difficult situations, without EVER giving up. It’s what keeps us going when we are on the verge of “wanting” to give up…

It appears that ALOT of people loose hope when Monday morning comes around…Am I right?

They’ve enjoyed the weekend sooo much that work seems like the biggest drag ever…

I’m sure that’s why Eric Tomas makes “Thank God It’s Monday” every week 🙂

Look at it like this though: Things could be so much worst…

It’s easy to complain about our current situation, I use to do it…

But when you look at the bigger picture at what is going on around us in the world today, it’s easy to see that we’re not doing too bad 🙂

Imagine if you had no food to eat whilst starvation was upon you?
Imagine living on the streets throughout the winter period?

Imagination is a powerful tool to help you see that “All is well”

Anywhoo,

I want to discuss motivation with you today…

Being a personal trainer/nutrition advisor, I’ve heard every excuse under the Sun LOL…

Here’s a few:

“I had no time Dave, you know, with work n all”
“It was raining outside buddy…”
“Dave, you know how it is, KFC is just so tempting”
“Healthy food is boring Dave, I really can’t do this”
“It’s too much effort man – I will just take fat burners instead”

Heck, I may have even used some of those excuses myself in the past…

However, one thing I’ve come to learn about excuses is that they are just:

“Really Good Stories”

It’s a story we create and tell ourselves on a daily basis to make us feel better. Think about it…

Somehow along the way of becoming a great story teller, we actually believe our own story LOL…

Us humans really are something else…

We then tell our friends and family:

“Arghh man, I was going to the gym for a month or two but I stopped as it took up way too much of my energy. I also started to eat sugar again to keep my energy levels up also”.

People come up with such a bizarre crazy stories and really believe them LOL

It’s all good though as I know this fitness way of life isn’t easy.

It does take work and dedication to keep your nutrition in check.

It does require effort to work out 3-4 times a week whilst working a job (Just Over Broke) and juggling family and social life…

BUT it can be done if you make the time and are “Motivated” enough to stick to it…

Do you have heart? Do you have what it takes?

YES YOU DO!

Are you prepared to sacrifice something you love to get to where you want to be?

Only you can answer that one my friend…

Do you give up when it get’s tough?

Maybe before you did, but not after reading this…

YOU CAN CREATE WHATEVER IT IS YOU WANT IN LIFE…

It all depends on what you are willing to put in though?

When I was preparing for my first Bodybuilding/Fitness show, motivation was the only thing that kept me going…

Did I want to give up at times…HELL YES!

I even doubted myself at times…

I had to sacrifice foods I loved as they were no good for my goal…

I had to come out of my comfort zone and train harder than I ever had trained before as I was competing against the best physiques in Europe…

I had to believe in myself!

No one else can believe in you if you don’t have self belief first…Remember that…

I had to wake up at 5.30am in the morning to go to the gym. I then got to work tired only to work a 8 hour shift and still went back to the gym for round 2 of training in the evening. That’s my story but not one filled with excuses…

Too many of you are good story tellers…

Like I say, I know how it is – I’m human as well…

But don’t let story telling (excuses) be the reason why you don’t excel and move forward in your wonderful life…

Do you know that whatever created you also created you to create abundance in your life?

Our mind is a gift that allows us to make our thoughts a reality – Did you know that?

Did you know that you are more powerful and special than you may perceive at this moment in time?

If not, work with me on reclaiming your power and live the HAPPY LIFE that you deserve to live – I’m not joking here!

What other way is there to live? Really think about this my people…

A new job…

A new state of mind…

A new you…

It is all possible if YOU REALLY WANT IT…

I love you guys!

Stay Strong, Stay Focused & Let’s Keep Making This Thing Happen!
