“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
“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.
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.
The state or fact of existing, occurring or being present.
We often forget to take time to be in the ‘now’ it’s common to jump ahead and constantly think of the future and look back at the past. With that habit, we can often be oblivious to what is already present. This brings me to the point of being in the present moment awareness. Have gratitude for what we have right now and what is around us. Think about everything that’s good in your life.
Today’s society is caught up in the online world and spend more time online than being present in real life. “Don’t let your online presence be greater than your real life presence”
Open your conscience mind through meditation. Understand that we are infinite creators therefore you have the power to attract your reality. Be present and take action to create the reality that you desire.
Remember mindset is everything, your only limit is you. Aspire to inspire, have a wonderful day!
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
