5 Ways To Brighten Up Your Day

Tired of work or life in general controlling your mood? Instead letting the outside world effect you internally, how about you switch it up and let your mood effect your outside world.

P.S. you only want to do that if you’re in a positive, happy mood.

 

I put together a list of things I implemented in my life, to make my day bright even on a rainy day.

#1 Be observant and aware of your emotions. Acknowledge what stresses you out, and what makes you angry. Pay attention to how those things effect your whole day. The great thing about observing these things is that you have an advantage of being able to solve the things that are bothering you.

 

#2 Change your perspective. If you can’t change the things that are bothering you. Then you have to change your perspective on the situation. You have the power to decide how you feel, so start by deciding to be a little more optimistic. Possibly the problems you are facing are only temporary, maybe it’s helping you be a stronger person, the problems you are facing could be fuel, motivation to make a big change in your life. Looking at your problems from a different perspective can sometimes show you that they are not real problems or problems that can be easily solved.

 

#3 Predict the future. Decide and believe you are going to have a good day before it has even officially started. I do this when I take up an agency jobs, the reality is I don’t like the jobs but for some reason deciding that I am going to have a good day made it so much easier. I honestly have a good day, I think that’s because I believe that I’m going to have a good day. So the night before or the first thing in the morning plan, out your day. With the things that normally bother you, plan in your head that you’re not going to let it bother you. Your day will not go exactly as you planned but because you are conscious and self aware you can manipulate your feelings towards the day.  The way you feel inside can effect what happens outside.

 

#4 Have something to look forward to. You know the feeling you get where the day to your booked holiday is getting closer. Well you should create that feeling with other things not just holidays. Discover your passions again. If you love reading treat yourself to some books. Make time for yourself and do what excites you. Maybe you need something big, like follow your passion and start your own business. Whatever is make sure you have things in your life that you can look forward to. So start planning for your self.

 

#5 Self love, the confidence that everybody needs. Notice how you tolerate things because confidence is stopping you from dealing with it. Confidence is the key to success and happiness, love your self be proud of your achievements, be selfish sometimes. You deserve to be loved and respected, and if you want more people to treat you how you like to be treated, then you have to love and respect yourself to. I’m sure people will love and respect you without you loving yourself. But it is important that you do it will encourage not to put up with being mistreated, it will encourage you to do things that make you happy and it will give you the strength and confidence to do the things you’ve always wanted to do so that most days become bright.

Observe Seconds

The clock is ticking

The thin black handle

Moving every second

Representing time

So quickly it passes

Do you notice time?

You was born with time

The moment you took your first breath

Don’t let time stop ticking

Before you can truly

Feel alive

Personal Development

Personal Development

“So much opportunity, so many possibilities” ~ Frank Ocean

Personal development, is going through a process of being aware of yourself internally and externally. I’m always saying “mindset is everything” and it truly is. Personal development is being aware of our thoughts, emotions, desire and being aware of how we respond and react to situations. Lets get into why someone would need personal development:

Anxiety – You may not be able to see someone experience anxiety, but on the inside they are constantly feeling overwhelmed, living in fear which prevents them from doing a lot of normal things in life. People with anxiety usually struggle with the future, worry about things before they have even happened.

Depression – People with depression often feel, sad and lost. Many people experience depression in some point in there life but some people are unable to come out of depression. They struggle with the past.

Addiction – People with addiction often feel they are lacking something. So instead of connecting with people they connect with things that create temporary relief from whatever truths they are not facing.

Relationships – People having problems with marital relationships or family relationships. Most likely they want to make their relationships work but don’t know how to fix it. Usually they would struggle with communication and understanding different perspectives.

Finance – People wanting to accumulate more money and be successful or people struggling with finances they may have got them into dept. Most likely are struggling in the present or unable to see their future clearly.

Spiritual – People that are feeling lost, and want some clarity. Possibly curious to find there life purpose. Want to be in touch with themselves on a deeper level, searching for a spiritual awakening. People that feel lost often feel like life has come to a stand still and are going with the flow, with no destination.

Going through a journey of personal development will; improve your social abilities, your mental and physical health, your talents, knowledge about yourself, it will also improve your quality of life and happiness.

FLOATING IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION

Going on a sailing journey

Heading to a beautiful destination.

Dropping the heavy weight of the past

Into the ocean

The journey of changing state of mind

Enlightening your life, to enlighten the lives of others

Finding peace within, on the smooth sea

Appreciate the present time

See the clarity in the future

Through clear water

Stepping in to the future

On the beautiful shores of your destination

To finally feel

Awakened

Past & Peace 

“Forgive others, not because they deserve forgiveness. But because you deserve peace.”

The way I think of the past is like written chapters to your unfinished book. Some people let the bad things that happened in their past define who they are today. Any negativity in my past I see them as lessons and and opportunities for me to grow into a better person. The great thing about the past being like written chapters of an unfinished book; is that you can go back and edit your past. You can change your perception of the story. You can remove the heavy weight of emotion and take something positive from it.

Don’t get stuck in the past, because if you’re stuck in the past. You’re not really living. Maybe in the past you was a victim in a situation. But you are not a victim today. You have got through it, how do I know? Because you are still here today and the only thing that’s keeping you in the past. Is that you are not letting go. Which is why you don’t feel life is getting better. Life is not happening to you, life is responding to you. So if you want life to get better. You must let go and remove any anger from your system, as it’s scientifically proven that anger poisons you’re system. So you need to change your attitude, your behaviour, your perception, you must rewrite your story and let go so you can start living and be present.

You deserve peace and happiness. So keep looking forward and find inspiration.

Persistence, Personal Development

 

The fact of continuing in an opinion or course of action in spite of difficulty or opposition.

 

Persistence is the journey of manifestation. Dreaming and thinking of your goal until you have it in plain sight. Persistence is habitual behaviour, not everyone has learnt that trait and that’s okay. You need to find your motivation, your desire. The thing that’s going to trigger you, to get all that you need and want out of life. You get that by finding out who you are and what you want. Because if you’re not 100% sure of who you are, then maybe what you think you want is not what you truly desire.

Persistence guarantees your success if it’s focused in the right direction. For example; your goal could be to lose 15 pounds in weight, by going on a diet. But if you put efforts into the wrong direction you could be persistent in constantly going on a diet, yoyo dieting. Make sure your vision and desire is clear. You want to make sure you are persistent in the right direction. Make your focus directed at positive polarity.

I recently heard a talk from Bob Proctor, “your persistence must be continuously connected to your desired vision”

Persistence keeps you going through every obstacle you can imagine. Believe in your struggle, believe that it will guide you to happiness and success. “If you’re going through hell; keep on going. – Winston Churchill

Understand the law of cause of effect as I believe it will make persistence makes sense. Context determines the content. A quote I read from life purpose info

“Good deeds bring good results.          Bad deeds bring bad results.             Your own deeds bring your own results”

For example growing a tomato, the context what you put in such as; the seed, the soil, water and the light. The content is the growth of the tomato. Own effort, own result.

Use persistence to work for you and not against you. “The power plant doesn’t have energy, it generates energy.”

My summary of being persistent, is to have the image of your goal in your subconscious mind. Then focus on your behaviour, act on that image and be persistent to make it your reality. Have a high level of expectancy, believe it is possible and that you have the strength to make it happen.

Hope this inspired you to go after your dreams. Remember everyday is a new slate, don’t live with regrets.

Patience, Self Mastering

The capacity to accept or tolerate delay, or suffering without becoming annoyed or anxious.

Patience is a skill that I am still learning and practicing. I can sometimes start something and not finish because I can be impatient at times. Patience is important, it is part of self mastering, it prepares us for great things to come. It challenges us to stop looking at the time. Time is precious and it is a powerful gift we all have been given. We have a start and we have an end. What we do in between is entirely up to us. We can do whatever we choose to do with our time. But patience, we don’t all have it. It takes mental strength and discipline. Patience allows us to be aware, enjoy the process of life. Inside every successful person is a patient individual.

Have patience everything is difficult before it is easy.

If you find yourself to be impatient, don’t focus on how long you have to wait. Focus on what you are going to do while you wait. You cannot manipulate time, but you can change your attitude towards it. The positive thing about delays or waiting is that it makes you more aware of time. The negative part is that waiting can cause annoyance, anger or anxiety. Take the precious time you have to be self aware. Accept the current situation or hard journey in your life and think of ways how you can make it a little bit better. Maybe change the way you feel about the situation and be content with it. That does require mental strength but that can be self taught. Anger and anxiety can take up a lot of your energy and a lot of your thoughts, and it does not have to be like that.

My Short Poem

Patience is a skill, an art of mental strength

It’s not an art we can see, but one we can experience

When I think patience, I think time

Time is precious, we all have a timeline

What makes us different is our journey from the start to finish

Impatience can make us consume negativity

We can’t change the lenghth of time we have to wait

But we can change the way we feel while we wait

Self awareness, acceptance and being content is the key

Stay Patient And Trust Your Journey
