Write a Thank You Letter to Yourself

You can set an ambitious goal and use this letter to help you accomplish it. I’m presenting a thank you letter, which you would write to yourself after accomplishing the ambitious goal. When you thank yourself for accomplishing something ambitious, you put into place the energy to accomplish it.

Remove the Anchors in Your Life and Start to Live

Do you feel as if your feet are cemented to the ground? Perhaps you are dragging several anchors in your life. How can you move up and continue with those anchors and feelings of despair? It’s time to make a change! It’s time to remove the anchors in your life.

Are You Worthy or Worthless?

Have you ever asked yourself this question – Am I worthy or worthless? Better yet, do you truly like yourself? These are not easy questions and ones we must dig down within us to answer truthfully.

Seek Out the Attic People

You’re probably wondering what exactly are attic people. Well keep reading because you will soon find out. Take a look around you.

End of the World – Or the Beginning of a New Life?

Imagine if you spent some extra days a year learning a skill or gaining a better understanding of your career you could easily learn enough that could earn a raise or a promotion in one years time! Or even better – start a side business. You can also start a simple blog talking about what you love or what your interested in and by consistently adding content you can grow it into a profitable business.

What We Hope to Avoid Can Undermine Our Intentions

A short time ago, I wrote an article about the difference between goals and intentions. Goals add a value to our lives and motivate us to improve our overall situations. Intentions, on the other hand, enable us to take vital action toward what we hope to accomplish. Too frequently, goals are set in place because of what we desire to avoid, setting us up for failure. It is impossible to take action toward what you don’t want, and setting a goal in place to avoid anything undermines intentions. You must find balance between these differences if you hope to succeed.

There Is Not An Excuse To Play The Blame Game, For You Are To Blame Or Benefit For Your Life

Look, for every success and every failure, there is not anyone to blame except yourself and your responsibility. If there was more to blame outside of yourself, then the Christian biblical saying “to them that have more will be given, and to them who do not have what little they have will be taken away” would not be approached by many cultures as not just a theory, but a genuine law of how life really works.

Bee Motivated!

Are you busy as a bee? I love this phrase because if no one else, our little black and yellow friends really have it figured out. Let’s attempt to forget for a moment that when a bee is in sight most of us tend to prance around like little girls flapping your arms like penguins – because I want to talk about something they certainly have, that you may not! Bees do not work hard because they are worried the Queen is going to bite their heads off (fear-based), they work hard because they are working for a cause, a purpose, or a higher calling (intrinsic-based). They are working to better the lives of their fellow bees, create a world filled with abundance, and live a life filled with meaning. Do you feel this way?

You Would Be Surprised

There are times in our lives where we don’t think we can do something but we go ahead and do it because we have to or we really want to. We step out in blind faith and attempt whatever it is and find out it wasn’t as bad as we thought it would be. We had been putting it off thinking it was going to be too hard or we didn’t have all we needed to complete the task; however, after we started we found out it wasn’t as hard as we thought.

Are You Being The Real You?

It seems that so many of us try very hard to be like everyone else and conform to the norm, possibly in order to stay hidden in the crowd and not bring attention to ourselves. However, I really wish that we could celebrate our differences and allow ourselves to let the world see what wonderful, unique beings we are.

Brick by Brick

What can building blocks teach us about how to achieve the things we have set out to do? We have a goal in mind. Perhaps we want to lose weight, get fitter, build a new business, write a book, pay off our debts or some other aim. So we have the end in mind – as in the picture on the cover of the Lego™ instruction booklet. However, all we have at this starting point is a pile of ‘bits’. How are we going to take those bits and make something out of them? Brick by brick, of course.

Who Needs Willpower?

We all have had something we had to stay strong in and use our willpower to overcome. It may have been issues dealing with health where we had to change our eating habits for better health. It may have been issues dealing with our finances where we had to change our spending habits to save money and get the bills paid. It may have been a decision we had to make in a relationship with family or friends.
