it always

What does this mean to you?

To me, it means just getting started.

It’s too easy to over think things when in reality it can be as simple as just getting the job done.

How many times have you thought about getting something done and put it off as the task seemed so over whelming.

This could be anything – From starting a fitness regime, to cleaning your bedroom.

Overthinking vs Instinct

Thinking can slow you down sometimes, but by applying instinct and a just get it done attitude, you can progress a lot further.

What do you think?

 

It always seems impossible until it’s done.

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

NAMASTE

Hello my wonderful Brothers & Sisters:-D

How are we on this fine day?

You may ask what is fine about the day due to the cold weather or even a sticky situation you are in…

I say, the day is fine as you are alive, breathing and able to have the experience of that sticky situation.

For if you were not alive, that situation would not have managed to manifest itself in your reality…

Some may say, be thankful for that sticky situation for when you are out of it, your health, wealth and happiness remains with the bonus of becoming a stronger individual.

~What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger~ couldn’t be much truer

A stronger character has arose from having to face, conquer and defeat that situation – Whatever it may be/or have been.

Therefore, if we find ourself in future sticky situations, which we will, because that’s how life lessons and mastery is learnt, then we should view them as mere blessings in disguise, knowing that once we have faced the ugly, the pretty will reveal itself – Make sense?

This is called “4D Thinking” – It’s another way of thinking and perceiving life…I invite you to explore this concept further with me…

Here’s another example of “4D Thinking”

If you feel bad about something, recognise that you are the one making yourself feel bad. No one can MAKE you do anything.

Take real control over your life by recognising that you control your feelings, thoughts and emotions.

The moment you blame someone else for how you are feeling, you are then indirectly saying that they are in control of you – Make sense?

If that’s the case and people dictate how you feel, you will never have true control over your life and true freedom will only exist as a thought, wish or even desire…

Claim responsibility, take control and truly be free.

This is “4D Thinking” at it’s finest.

We live in a 3D physical plane where everything is just that – 3 Dimensional (3D)

We now have, 3D TVs, 3D movies and crazily enough, 3D printers…Go Youtube it!

It’s understandable why we then as humans think in “3D terms”.

However, looking at today’s society and the world itself “3D Thinking” is obviously not working.

Today I am showing you an insight into my new reality…This reality has improved the quality of my life far beyond my expectations.

I am more confident, magical things are happening for me, I’ve found my life’s purpose, I’m helping people and events, people and places are no longer coincidences but synchronistic events – Deep I know…

In fact, the word coincidence no longer exist in my vocabulary – I’m not even joking. That’s how much my reality has changed.

I also no longer use:

I Should of

I Could of

I Would of

They are all poison for the mind…

I simply say to myself:

“The NEXT time I’m in a similar situation, I will do things differently by…”

I Should of, I Could of, I Would of = “3D Thinking”

WHY you may ask?

BECAUSE, it leaves you in a place where you don’t feel good about yourself and Life is about finding joy in every moment and feeling good about yourself. Why EVER should you make yourself feel bad about something? Ask yourself that now for 5 minutes?

Therefore, if you are not feeling good about yourself, then you are not in alignment with your true self as your true self only knows happiness and love and if your not feeling happy or loved then your not being true to yourself and you are neglecting yourself from your own love -This is “4D Thinking“.

Some might then say, “4D Thinking” is a way of thinking that helps you to always feel good about yourself whilst living in the present moment…Yes this is true plus some…

Why feel bad about anything? If you screw up, so what, screw up and screw up HARD…As long as you learn from the situation, move on and continue living your life rather than letting it consume you.

Life for me is exactly that –  Making mistakes, learning from them and becoming an improved version of me/myself  and I – “4D Thinking

Previously for me, it went a little something like this:

Making a mistake and beating myself up about it. Then poisonous self talk would enter my mind;

“I should of done this, I could of done this,argghh If only I had done that”

NO DAVID, SNAP OUT OF IT!

That is 3D thinking as your living in the past, a reality which no longer exist and like I’ve said before:

If you’re living in the past, then you are insane by a Psychologist definition as you are thinking about changing something which has already happened and cannot be changed. A previous (past) reality is consuming your current reality…

The sad thing is, so many of us live like this or know someone that does.

Breathe and come back to the present…Come back and claim your gift…

Come back to the NOW, and get a hold of yourself.

Can you see why the present is your gift? The present moment that is. The present moment is life itself. The present moment is all there is, all there ever was and all there ever will be.

We don’t go into the future by any accord – The present moment (now) takes us into the future and simultaneously creates our past.

10 seconds ago is now the past…..

What you are reading will become a past experience in only a few seconds…

This is why you hear TIME IS AN ILLUSION!

And it is, think about it with me for just a moment…

When you’re having fun, time does what, it fly’s past quickly right.

However, when you are bored and your brain stimulus isn’t as active, time does what, goes slowly right…

Now, in reality, it takes the same amount of time for the big hand on the clock to turn 360 degree’s…

However, the “Fun vs Boring” situation has some how changed your perception on reality, although the big hand on the clock was moving at the same pace…Why is this…

Because the reality you live, is the reality you create…

Which is all in your mind…

My Facebook post are turning into mini blog post and I’m aware that not all of you follow me on FB, so from time to time I will post what I’ve written on FB and link it here as the knowledge and information is still related to the topics of this site.

I decided to call this the warm up as I have a whole lot to talk about on the subject of:

“Making that Change”

I have changed my life drastically over the last 5 years and I have studied what has helped me make the change (for the better mind you) and stick to it.

I have what it takes to help others make a positive change in their life’s and at this point I don’t even want any money for it. It’s my life purpose to be of service to others and if I help you in some way, shape or form, then I am doing my “true” job.

I started the year with my body fat hovering around 20%.

I will be finishing the year with my body fat under 10%.

You’ve literally watched me transform my body over the last 10 months.

I know a lot of you want to make a change for the better whether it be a new way of eating, thinking or something more personal to you.

Change isn’t always easy as a lot of the time it requires making changes to your current routine and sacrificing things you love.

But ask yourself this:

“Is the sacrifice that I’m going to make worth the end result”

It’s only when you find the true answer to this question that you can begin to proceed with taking the 1st step.

Life is what you make of it – If you perceive it to be hard, it will be hard. Changing your pattern of thinking is where the real change begins to take place.

Like I always say though…Believe nothing I say.

Go do the research for yourself and find truth within what I am saying.

To believe is to accept information without finding the truth in it for yourself. Would this then mean that you’re living a lie???
