Finding Your Passion

Tuesday, October 11th, 2011

Do you ever ask yourself “What IS my passion and what would make me happy? How do I decide what I want to do?”

Sometimes it’s difficult to determine what you want to do with your life. Whether you are deciding for the first time or if you currently have a career or a job that you don’t enjoy, this short set of questions will help guide you toward a good choice of direction.

•What makes me happy?
•What do I enjoy doing?
•What comes naturally to me?
•What am I good at?
•What do I learn quickly?

Now look at any similarities in your answers and draw some ideas from them. You can now take this information and research the field of possibilities in the areas you have compiled.

When you wonder “How do I know when I have found my passion?” just ask yourself this question: “If I won the lottery today, would I keep doing what I am doing now?” If the answer is “yes” then you are (or will be) doing what makes you happy.

“Pursuing your passion is fulfilling and leads to financial freedom.” — Robert G. Allen

Visualize Your Dreams

Monday, November 22nd, 2010

Visualization is a key factor in staying motivated. Your mind activates and starts working on your dreams every time you “see” your goal.
visualize your future, visualization, goal setting, dream board
Using visualization is easy when you use a dream board. A dream board is a collage of your goals. Simply create a dream board and hang it where you will see it regularly.

To build your dream board, these are some of the items you will need:

    • Poster board or cork board
    • Pictures or words of your goals
    • Glue, tape, or tacks

Arrange your words and pictures in a fun manner and attach them to your board. Hang your dream board in your shower (using a large waterproof zipper bag), next to your mirror, bed, or in your work area and look at it often.

Stay motivated and energized by starting every day with visualization of your future!

Change Your Words for Success!

Monday, August 16th, 2010

Words are powerful and they can make the difference between failure and success. Words, just like goals, determine our actions.

When we eliminate negative words and substitute them with positive thoughts and words, then we gain hope and courage. We give ourselves encouragement to move toward the successes we deserve.

Below are words you shouldn’t use and a positive substitute word or phrase for each:Words for success, self improvement, goal setting

Quit ……………..I can do it
Cannot ………..I can
Unable …………I am willing and able
Impossible ….If it’s realistic, it’s possible.
But …………….And (usually works)
If ………………..When
Should ……….Will
Won’t …………Will
Maybe ……….For sure
Someday ……Today
Never …………Now
Try ……………..I’ll do it

For just one week, think before you commit to saying a negative word or statement. When you do this, it will improve your happiness, make you more enthusiastic and move you in the direction of your goals.

Share this with someone you care about!

Promise Yourself – The Optimist Creed

Wednesday, July 28th, 2010

Wonderful creed to live by and that is why I am sharing this.

Promise yourself to be strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind.

To talk health, happiness and prosperity to every person you meet.

To make all your friends feel that there is something in them.

To look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true.

To think only of the best, to work only for the best.

To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own.

To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future.

To wear a cheerful countenance at all times and give every living creature you meet a smile.

To give so much to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others.

To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.

To think well of yourself and to proclaim this fact to the world, not in loud words but great deeds.

To live in faith that the whole world is on your side so long as you are true to the best that is in you.

Christian D. Larson 1912 – The Optimist Creed

Choose to be an optimist; to be happy and spread joy!

Positive Life Changes

Wednesday, July 28th, 2010

How do you manage change in your life? Changes are essential because they open new doors to opportunity and they create room for adjustments. Accept change because without it, your life may become lackluster and cheerless.

Everyone experiences change, whether it is a change in their job, relationship or health. It may even be a change you initiated that may suddenly seem daunting.

Practice being good at change and always focus on the positive. Sometimes it may take some time to realize that a specific change of circumstance was actually a gift in disguise. The gift you receive may not even be related, in any way, to the change you experienced. For example, you may lose your job but find yourself in a rewarding new relationship would never have taken shape if you were still employed.

Change may lead you to new people, help you develop a stronger belief in yourself, provide you with new opportunities, or inspire you to live a healthier life.

It’s important to be on the lookout for the good that can transpire from unexpected changes.

Rejuvenate Your Life

Friday, July 23rd, 2010

Do you have low days; days where you feel down? It’s fine to have those days once in awhile. Sometimes you just need a day to refresh.

These are the days when you need to be thankful for who you are, reflect on your past achievements and review where you are going. Ponder the successes you are working toward and think about the exhilaration you will feel when you reach those successes.

Take the down day to examine your life, find your soul, meditate, or read. Indulge in something that puts you back on track the next day.

After your day off, begin your next day with your power start and feel the rejuvenation! Rekindle your momentum and take some action steps toward your goals. Keep putting one foot in front of the other. Do not quit!

The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step. Lao Tzu

Gratitude

Monday, July 19th, 2010

Knowing what you are grateful for is an important factor to happiness and success.

Being aware of everything that you have to be thankful for will help you create a positive focus. Gratefulness will help you reach your goals because you are seeing all the positive things that are happening in your life.

When you are focused on the things that make you worry, you may fall into an unproductive state, which will set you back from reaching your goals. Even obstacles in our lives make us learn and problem solve, so accept these as opportunities of personal growth.

You are responsible for your success or failures, so let’s focus on successes!

Here are ideas to help bring gratitude into your life every day:

Start a gratitude journal
Create a gratitude list
Add a statement to your power start and give thanks every morning
Read your goals each morning, then add one thing you are grateful for
Put a rock or piece of polished glass in your pocket and every time you see it or feel it, think of something you are grateful for

Realize what you have and who you are and find ways to be thankful for everything.

Today I Will Master My Emotions

Sunday, July 18th, 2010

“The Greatest Salesman in the World” by Og Mandino an excellent book and it’s not just for salespeople. The concepts in this book will help you to positively alter your attitudes.

Excerpt:

Weak is he who permits his thoughts to control his actions; strong is he who forces his actions to control his thoughts. Each day, when I awaken, I will follow this plan of battle before I am captured by the forces of sadness, self-pity and failure –

If I feel depressed I will sing.
If I feel sad I will laugh.
If I feel ill I will double my labor.
If I feel fear I will plunge ahead.
If I feel inferior I will wear new garments.
If I feel uncertain I will raise my voice.
If I feel poverty I will think of wealth to come.
If I feel incompetent I will remember past success.
If I feel insignificant I will remember my goals.
Today I will be master my emotions.

End excerpt.

I highly recommend this book. It is an easy read and well worth your time!

Positively Altering Your Views

Sunday, July 11th, 2010

Sometimes it is a challenge to make changes in our life because certain things may seem like a chore to us. Positively altering the way you perceive the changes you are making will produce better results and propel you more quickly toward your goals.

Here are some examples:

I have to manage my time. Change to: I have my priorities straight.
I am dieting to lose weight. Change to: I have changed my relationship with food.
I am working to change my life. Change to: I am transforming my life.
I must always think about self improvement. Change to: I live consciously.

Do an exercise right now.

Write down the changes you are making in your life that you discern to be a chore.

Now, positively modify these transformations.

From today forward, think and talk about these changes with your new and improved declarations!
