Change the meaning – change the message...

Mar 24 by

I love books – I have a library of ’em! Being a collector of knowledge may be very rewarding, but I learned some time ago that the truth will not pop out of it. It will only lead to a search for more knowledge. Furthermore, knowledge will not change the quality of your life. It will only inform you. What changes the quality of your life is mastering your emotions. There is a tendency to believe that emotion masters us – “I can’t help it, it’s just the mood I’m in.” But the mood you’re in is a direct result of the thoughts you think and the meaning you give to them and the circumstances around them. Just for fun, this week try changing the meaning of things, and notice what happens to your...

Using breathing exercises to deal with stress...

Mar 23 by

Many people do not breathe fully in their daily lives. Smoking, tension and incorrect posture will all restrict the lungs being utilised correctly. This in turn can lead to health problems. Therefore, learning to breathe correctly and to be able to practice it a few times each day is really useful. The complete breath a yogic technique is powerful and easy to use and it can be done at anytime throughout the day and essentially, anywhere. It’s an important technique because it involves the complete respiratory system and expands the lungs fully. 1. With an empty stomach and sitting upright, inhale slowly through the nostrils, pushing out the stomach as the inhalation continues. Feel the air filling the lower, middle and upper lungs and the rib cage expanding. 2. Raise the shoulders slightly to...

Do you have a definite major purpose?...

Mar 22 by

“Cherish your visions and your dreams as they are the children of your soul, the blueprints of your ultimate achievements.” Napoleon Hill In my opinion, the most important step anyone can take in the development of themselves and in the development of their potential is to determine a Definite Major Purpose (DMP) for their life! If you really think about it, the most successful people in the world do this instinctively. Some of them may be well aware of the importance of having a major purpose in life while others just happen to stumble upon their purpose and never give it a second thought before diving in. What are some of the characteristics of a DMP? -It is work you would do whether or not you were paid -It is something you have passion...

Stop Waiting for Approval

Mar 21 by

“Are you in earnest? Seize this very minute! Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. Only engage, and then the mind grows heated. Begin, and then the work will be completed. ” Jean Anouilh Most of us have a list of things we have wanted to do in our lives, but we never got around to doing them for one reason or another. Whether it was learning a new instrument, taking a special trip, moving to a completely new place, starting a dream business or anything else that we might consider a “dream” that we may realize “some day”. As the months and years slip by, “some day” never happens and those inspiring ideas and dreams ultimately slip away as well. This is a common story for many people. But there are also...

Can Goals, Wishes and Dreams Be the Same?...

Mar 20 by

Wishes, dreams and goals are not at all the same thing. They may have near meanings, but there is a difference between the three of them. A Wish is is something that one desires to have, but does not have it yet. A dream is something that a person visualizes in the future. A goal is a target that a person sets in life. You need to make sure you are clear of the differences but strive for one of...

What do you when you’re not feeling creative?...

Mar 19 by

I must be honest. There are some days when I sit down to write and I think there’s not a shred of creativity in me. Today, as I began, was one of those days. So I thought, why don’t I tell them about that? How do you get creative or resourceful when it just doesn’t seem to be there? Easy peasy, as we used to say at school. (I think we might have added “lemon squeezy” too – but who cares?). I simply remember all the times I have been resourceful. I see myself sitting at my desk writing furiously, wondering how on earth so much time can have passed I’m on such a roll. I recall times when I was teaching, or explaining something passionately to my kids, or when I had to...
