Don’t settle for less than you deserve

Don’t settle for less just because it’s easier than fighting for what you truly deserve, sometime we have to be willing to lose everything in order to get everything. If you know who you are, what you can do, and what you deserve, go out and get it, and don’t settle!

 

 

"The minute you settle for less than you deserve, you get even less than you settled for." - Maureen Dowd

 

 

Don’t settle for crumbs, you know deep inside your heart that you deserve more, you know that the life you want is possible, you wish and dream every day for a miracle that can change your life, and that is because you know you have settled for less. Don’t be afraid of losing what you have in order to get what you deserve, because the day we settle for a life that is far less than the one we truly want and deserve is the day where we condemn ourselves to a mediocre and empty life.

If you have what you want, if you have a job, a relationship, a career, or anything you always wanted and though you feel grateful or happy about it but at the same time you feel unsatisfied, having the feeling that something is missing in your life, it’s probably because you have settled for a life that is less than the life you have always dreamed of.

 

 

 

“There is no passion to be found playing small – in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.” – Nelson Mandela

 

 

 

Life is about making decisions and taking risks, where in fact the worst risk of all, is the risk of settling for a life that is not even close to the one we deserve. We have to make a decision, if we want to take the risk to settle and live a mediocre life for the rest of our lives leaving everything to chance or if we want to take the risk to fail over and over again in order to get the life we deserve.

The truth is that if we choose to follow our heart and take the risk to fail over and over again means that we are in the right way to achieve our goals and desires because failure only means that we are doing something, and as long as we don’t give up, we will get the life of our dreams and we’ll live a happy and fulfilled life.

 

 

 

“Every day, people settle for less than they deserve. They are only partially living or at best living a partial life. Every human being has the potential for greatness.” – Bo Bennett

 

 

 

Life is meant to be happy but the problem is we usually underestimate ourselves and so we settle for less than we deserve just because we have no idea of who we really are and what we are capable of, we have everything we need to achieve our goals and desires, but we must believe in ourselves and face all our fears. We must decide to leave behind everything we don’t deserve, in order to get what we truly deserve.

No matter if you have settled for an unfulfilled relationship, job, or any other aspects in your life, you have the power within yourself to decide to change your life. I know that sounds easy to say but believe me, no matter how hard it may seem to change your life, you will do it if you really believe in yourself, you deserve something better, you know that, and your soul is desperately screaming, because your soul knows who you really are and what are you capable of.

 

 

 

“The biggest human temptation is to settle for too little.” – Thomas Merton

 

 

 

Life is too short my friends, and the truth is we never know when it will be the time for us to leave this earth, so let’s enjoy every second of it, there is no time to be afraid, there is no time to be sad, there is only time to do what we love and be happy.

 

Don’t settle for less, go and get everything you deserve!

Age is nothing but a number

Age is nothing but a number, to which we have attached great significance. Somehow we have given more meaning than we should, and so we let a number to control our life. The truth is that age does not define us, or our destiny, because it is not our age that counts, but our attitude.

 

 

“Age is an issue of mind over matter. If you don't mind, it doesn't matter.”

 

 

As today is my 26th birthday I was thinking about life and age, and how our life is influenced by it. It seems that we have an age for everything, an age to learn and study, and age to have fun, an age to get married, and age to have kids, and age to be successful and an age where you are too old to do anything that you basically die before you are really dead.

We have given age the power to decide for us, it can decide if it’s right for us to do something or not, we base our decisions in our age, what most of the time lead us to make the wrong decision or to decide something according to our age rather than decide according to our feelings and desires and we do this due to the limitations we have put in our minds because of age.

 

 

“Don’t just count your years, make your years count.” – George Meredith

 

 

Age is a prison created by our society, which has deprived us the freedom to do whatever we want whenever we want. It’s like we are in a race against time, where the age to be free, to be young, happy, have fun, enjoy life, be successful, be beautiful and do whatever we want is very short, so we are pressed to do anything we can, at specific time with a specific age because after that age we become obsolete, and we bury all our dreams and desires together with our happiness and passion for life, and await the day that someone bury us with them.

 

The truth about age is that it’s an illusion, because we are free to do whatever we love to do whenever we want and above all our dreams don’t have an expiration date and it’s never too early or too late to chase them, and at any given moment we have the power to decide what we want to become and go and do whatever we can to become the person we always wanted to be. Our life is completely under our control, and is not age that controls us, because a number will be just a number if we do not give any power.

 

 

“You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream” – C.S. Lewis

 

 

Today I’m 26 years old, for some of you I can be too young for some things and too old for others, the truth is I don’t care about age, today is a day to celebrate because I’m alive, and that is all that matters today, being alive means that I still have the opportunity to do what I love and be happy, because age and situations are not in control of my emotions, I’m the one who is in control, and I know that happiness is something that lies within myself. I’m doing what I love and I always will regardless of my age, because age means nothing to me, my dreams and goals and my love for life is what keep me alive, and even if one day I reach my 100th birthday I will be as alive as I am now, because age will only matter the day I stop adding years to my life, because that moment will mean that I’m dead, and dreams, goals, passions, and everything that you love can only be achieved while you are alive.

The important thing in our life is to know that age is not what matters, because what really matter in our life is our attitude, our faith, commitment and perseverance. Of course our age indicates the passage of time, and so we have more difficulties at certain age, but the key to live our life to the fullest resides in our mind, there is nothing that can stop us to reaching our goals if we believe that everything is possible. Our mind is everything, and we should never let age interfere with us.

 

 

“Live your life and forget your age.” – Norman Vincent Peale

 

 

Let’s give less importance to age and more importance to our mind and attitude, because we cannot achieve anything and live a happy life if we don’t believe in ourselves. Remember age is just a number so don’t let it control your life, age only indicates that you are alive to keep being happy, having fun, enjoying life, laughing, learning, dreaming, smiling and to keep living your life to the fullest!

Get out of your comfort zone

We make decisions all the time, every new step we make in our life is followed by another new decision we must make, some of those decisions are not going to have any repercussion but some of those decision yes, and there is one decision that can change your whole life: The decision to get out of your comfort zone.

 

 

“A ship in harbor is safe, but that is not what ships are built for.” – John A. Shedd.

 

 

 

My life was quite the same as everyone else, and as most of the people in this world I was just existing, but one day I was wondering, what if I die tomorrow? Can I say that I have really lived my life? And of course the answer was No, so I decided to leave my comfort zone and move ahead into the unknown, and it was in that unknown place where I found myself. Leaving my comfort zone was the best decision I have ever made in my entire life.

Of course it’s not easy for anyone to leave the place where we feel comfortable and neither was for me, because we are afraid of the unknown and it’s easy for us to settle in a place where everything seems to be alright and under control even if we have the feeling that we don’t belong there. The problem is that we easily get used to be in the comfort zone, because we know that making the decision to get out of it means that we are going to suffer from things we didn’t suffer so far, but let me tell you something, the suffering you will face will be worth it, because that suffering is much more rewarding than the suffering you are facing right now for not living your life as you always wanted.

 

 

“Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.” – Neale Donald Walsch

 

 

 

Safety is one thing, dreams are other, if you think you came here to do what people told you to do, and have a normal life, great! Then you are going to live your life as them, and one day you will realize that you haven’t lived at all, because those who decide to stay in the comfort zone are those who have refused to follow their dreams, and those who do not follow their dreams do not live at all. Life has a special meaning for those who dare to leave the comfort zone and go after their dreams.

What I want you to understand is that yes, it is really fantastic to live in the comfort zone, because we have everything we need to survive there, everything is under control, but there is much more out there, waiting for you to make the decision. Once you decide to make the big step to get out of your comfort zone you will start to live, you will find everything you have been looking for and all the doors that were previously closed will open for you.

 

 

 

“Move out of your comfort zone. You can only grow if you are willing to feel awkward and uncomfortable when you try something new.” – Brian Tracy

 

 

 

For me making the decision to leave my country and my comfort zone and travel the world was the best decision I ever made, It wasn’t easy because I struggled a lot in many aspects but it was worth it, because that struggle was the kind of struggle you have when you are doing what you love, so I decided to embrace the struggle every step of the way because it was what motivated me to keep moving forward, because it reminded me that I was following my dreams.

I don’t know what kind of dreams or goals do you have, but no matter how impossible it may look like, if you leave your comfort zone and you do everything you can no matter how hard it gets, you will make it possible. We are here for a reason, our most desired and deepest dream, no matter how small or big, is what gives our life a meaning. There is no better feeling than the one we feel when we reach our goals.

 

 

Being fully alive means living outside your comfort zone, it’s the uncertainty of living there that makes everything possible. Take the decision, leave your safety area, dream, explore, take risks and live your life!

What motivates me?

There is one simple question we must ask ourselves: What motivates me?, once you find the answer to that question, you will find the reason of your existence, so you will finally know why are you here and what is your mission on this planet.

 Motivation is the key to success

I really believe that every human on earth is here for a reason, the trick is to find it. The best way to know what is our purpose in this life is by knowing what really motivates us. Motivation is what causes us to act in a specific way at a particular time and can be influenced by different factors that can be internal or external, so our motivations will determine our behaviors, and our behaviors will determine our future.

What is really important is that we must find what really motivates us to do something, because if those motivations are based in obligations created by external factors, we will feel frustrated even if we have achieved the goals imposed by those factors. And the reason why we feel frustrated is because we haven’t fulfilled our most desired goals, because we have allowed fear to interfere with our dreams, and when we do that, we let fear be our motivation, so we act according to our fears, letting them to control us, what makes us to go in the opposite direction of our goals and dreams. The only way to avoid this is by believing that our dreams are bigger than any fear, so we will use fear as a motivation rather than using fear as an excuse.

“The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why.” – Mark Twain

We must find what really motivates us in our life and what really motivates us to live our life and not only to exist are those things based in our true self. Those motivations that have been influenced by our deepest desires are those who are going to make us to be the best version of ourselves so we can make our dreams a reality, and that is the only way to live a happy and fulfilled life.

The trick to find our true motivation in life is to listen to our heart, so you can know what you truly want to become, and once you know that, from now on your motivations will be based in your true desires, what will make you to act in a certain way at every moment to achieve those desires. Once you find what really motivates you, stick to it and never let it go, because that motivation will make you to do whatever you can to reach your goals, and you will transform what it was impossible into possible.

“To succeed, you need to find something to hold on to, something to motivate you, something to inspire you.” – Tony Dorsett

What I want you to understand is that you must find those things that motivates you to be the person you always wanted to be, and the only way to do that is to listen the call from your soul and follow your heart at any time. It’s not going to be easy but it’s going to be worth it, because there is nothing that can give us more happiness than doing what we came here to do. So every time you are doing something always ask yourself why? Why am I doing this? What motivates me? Are those motivations influenced by my deepest desires or are those motivations based in someone else’s dreams?

I truly believe that those in which their actions are based in their deepest desires are those who live life to the fullest, because I think nothing is impossible for those who find what really motivates them in their lives and follow their hearts every step of the way. Those people never give up against adversity, because their motivations are also influenced by fears and doubts, what makes them to keep going forward because their desires and dreams are greater that their fears. Those people are motivated by their biggest dreams and not only motivated by simple goals, and when your motivation is influenced by the need to realize your dreams, is when you reach your full potential, and you fulfill you deepest goals and desires.

Find what motivates you, because that is the spark that will ignite the engine that will push you forward in your life and what will make you be the greatest version of yourself, and all your dreams will be a reality and you will have a happy and fulfilled life.

Be careful of your thoughts

Be careful of your thoughts, they control your life, as they have all the power to create your reality. What you see in your life it’s merely a set of thoughts, and that is why people have different realities. Your reality is the product of your thinking.

 

"The happiness of your life depends upon the quality of your thoughts." - Marcus Aurelius

 

We are thinking all the time, and how we feel in that moment depends in what is in our mind in that particular moment. Our thoughts can be positive or negative, but never both at the same time, what is going to give us our emotions, and our reality. So how you feel will be the result of what you were thinking. Remember that your thoughts have the power to control your emotions. So you will find that the key to control your emotions lies in your thoughts, if you want to change your reality, change the way you are thinking.

We can divide our thoughts in positive and negative thoughts, where our positive thoughts are those that make us feel good like thoughts of happiness, joy or gratitude, and then we have our negative thoughts that make us feel bad like sadness, anxiety or fear. So we can feel happy or we can feel sad, the choice is made by us depending in our thoughts, if you have positive thoughts you will feel happy, if you have negative thoughts you will feel miserable.

 

 

“If you realized how powerful your thoughts are, you would never think a negative thought.” – Peace Pilgrim

 

 

Everything is connected; your thoughts give you your emotions and feelings, what will form your behavior, and what will give your reality. So, to change our life experience, we must change our thinking, we must choose those thoughts based in positive things, so we can have better feelings and good emotions, what will make us to have a better behavior, what will give us a reality full of happiness and joy.

It takes only one thought to change everything, one different thought and you will not only change how you feel in a particular moment, but you will change your whole life experience. It takes only one positive thought to go from sadness to happiness; you just have to say to yourself that no matter what is happening right now, this is not the end, and you will be happy, because you deserve it.

 

 

“A man is but the product of his thoughts. What he thinks, he becomes.” – Mahatma Gandhi

 

 

I can say from my own experience that this is not something easy to do, but I can also say that is possible. What we have to do is to control our thoughts, and not let our thoughts to control us, and the easiest way is to open our perspective, so we can see everything in a different way, and understand that what is happening to us is happening for a reason, a reason we must learn to comprehend, so we can learn to see the positive side of it, a positive side that is sometimes hard to see because of our limited perspective.

We must be aware of the power of our thoughts, so we can control it, especially the negative thoughts, otherwise it will control us and it will destroy us. The day we learn how to control our thoughts, we will be capable of choosing a positive thought rather than a negative thought, and so we will decide to be happy at every moment rather than be sad needlessly.

 

 

“Your worst enemy cannot harm you as much as your own unguarded thoughts.” – Buddha

 

 

Always remember that your thoughts creates your reality, whatever you are thinking right now is what you are going to experience in your life. The negative thoughts will give you negative feelings, what will give you unfortunate situations, and everything around will seem to be against you, when in fact, is you the one who are against yourself, because you have chosen to have negative thoughts, negative emotions and negative behaviors what gave you your miserable and awful reality. But if you choose positive thoughts, you will have positive emotions and positive behaviors that will give you happy situations what is going to make you feel happy about your life because your reality will be amazing.

 

 

Look around you, if you can only see a miserable life, look again, there is always something to be happy for no matter what you are going through, take the negative thoughts away from your mind, and flood your mind with positive thoughts and you will see what you couldn’t see so far.

Are you doing what you love?

Do what you love

 

Are you doing what you love? If the answer is no, what are you waiting for? Our days on earth are counted, our time is limited, not knowing how many days we have left on this planet has given us the wrong idea that we have time, but the truth is that we waste most of our time on earth doing what we don’t like, leaving the things we love for another day, a day that never comes.

 

 

“And then there is the most dangerous risk of all: the risk of spending your life not doing what you want on the bet you can buy yourself the freedom to do it later.” – Randy Komisar

 

 

One day less means one day closer to our grave, it’s hard think it that way, but that is a fact, everyone is going to die someday, and you can’t do anything when you are dead, what you do while you are alive with your time on earth is what counts. The good thing about our life and our time on earth, is that even though is limited, we have the chance to choose either to use it for things we love or choose to waste every second of our life in doing things we don’t want.

Of course, there will be times when our only option is to do what we do not like, but that doesn’t mean that you have to spend the rest of your life doing something you don’t want to, what really means is that sometimes you have to do what you don’t want, in order to do what you love. We have the chance to decide what to do with our own life, and doing what we love is the only way to live a happy and fulfilled life.

 

 

“All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.” – J.R.R. Tolkien

 

 

We think we have time, so we decided to waste most of our precious time doing what we don’t want, thinking that some day we will be able to do the things we really love, and our days keep passing, and we keep staying in the same place, doing what we don’t want, wishing to be able to claim later our freedom.

The fact is that most of the people leave this world without having done the things they always wanted, They have spent their time in someone else’s life, being slaves and builders of the dreams of someone else, forgetting to invest time in their lives. So most of the people realize that they have wasted their time the day they don’t have any more time to do the things they love.

 

 

“One day you will wake up & there won’t be any more time to do the things you’ve always wanted. Do it now.” – Paulo Coelho

 

 

So if we could be able to know when we are going to die, we would change the way we are living. Think about it this way: if we could know the days we have left on earth, let’s say we know we have 365 days, we would still doing the things we are doing? Or we would change the way we are living? I can bet that most of us would change everything, and we would start doing things we always wanted to do. We’ll begin to truly live, every second, every minute and every hour of our life.

 

 

“The trouble is you think you have time.” – Buddha

 

 

So, are you doing what you love? No? So why don’t you start right now? As I said, we have the power to change our life in a second, and we are free to do with our life anything we want. We didn’t come to this world to just exist, we came here to live, and we came here to be the best version of ourselves. So stop waiting for the weekend to live, stop waiting for a special occasion to celebrate, stop waiting for your two or three weeks of vacation to live and be happy, and for Christ Sake, stop wasting your time doing things you don’t want, the time to do the things you always wanted is now, don’t leave it for tomorrow, there could be no tomorrow. Remove the words “I don’t have time” or “I can’t” from your mouth, there is time and you can do it, because the only time when you don’t have time and you can’t do something is the day you are in the graveyard, until then you are free to do what you want.

It’s easy to say, you might think, but yes it’s easy to say because it’s easy to do, as Jim Rohn said: “If you really want to do something, you’ll find a way. If you don’t, you’ll find an excuse.”

Find your inner child

Find your inner child, and you will find yourself again. Go back to those times where everything seemed to be possible, those times where you could become whatever you wanted, those times where you could just be yourself.

 

“When childhood dies, its corpses are called adults and they enter society, one of the politer names of hell.  That is why we dread children, even if we love them, they show us the state of our decay.”

Brian Aldiss

 

Somehow we have mixed up the meaning of being a child, we gave to that word the meaning of being immature, not fully grown or emotionally undeveloped, and so when someone acts like a child, we say that he is a very immature person. But then I ask myself, every bad behavior which is realized day by day by humans against the world and every being around them, it is not an immature behavior?

The humans, especially those who are considered to be very mature, are the one who are destroying everything and everyone around them, even though they have been blessed with a beautiful world, a magnificent body with a wonderful mind with the power to create everything they want, but which they not used to create but to destroy, it is this a mature behavior?

 

“Children have neither past nor future; they enjoy the present, which very few of us do.” – Jean de la Bruyere

 

The adults, those considered mature, are those who are constantly competing with each other, fighting with each other and those who are killing to each other, those people have forgotten the most important values as love, compassion, understanding, kindness, companionship and so on. And they have forgotten all that, because they have become a selfish person, they have become people who are only concerned with their own affairs.

When you grow up and become an adult, leaving the child behind, condemning the child spirit inside you to a death sentence, that’s when most of your dreams die, and that’s when part of your true self dies too, becoming your worst enemy. When you cease to be a child, you become vulnerable to all evil in this world, evil disguised as happiness, and so you let other adults who are also brainwashed by evil, to tell you what should you become in life, and what you should achieve either money, power, fame, material things and other nonsense.

 

“Be happy for no reason, like a child. If you are happy for a reason, you’re in trouble, because that reason can be taken from you.” – Deepak Chopra

 

So I prefer to be like a child rather than an adult whose brain has been washed, I prefer the innocence of a child, a child who laugh just because he can, a child with creativity and imagination, a child who dreams, a child that believe that he can do anything in the world, a child who believe that he can be a superhero and help people, a child full of joy and love, a child that can see the beauty in the small things, a child who is happy for no reason, a child who can love even those things that are product of his imagination, a child who has friends no matter where they come from, a child who doesn’t discriminate others for their religion or race, a child who doesn’t know how to hate, a child who loves truly, and who is always loyal to that love without any kind of interest, selfishness, limitations or expectations.

 

“Hold the hand of the child that lives in your soul. For this child, nothing is impossible.” – Paulo Coelho

 

A child is an angel, who has become a puppet due to the environment where he was born, an environment which has taught him how to become a person with no dreams, no imagination, no hope, no happiness and no love.

It is time for all adults in this world find their inner child, that child who can make you be yourself again, who can bring you joy, happiness, hope and love, that child who will make you dream again, and will make you believe that everything is possible, that magic and miracles actually exist, so find you inner child, the one will make you a happy person again for no reason, a person who is grateful, specially for the small and more important things in this world, so find your inner child, play, laugh, have fun, enjoy life, be happy, dream, smile and live your life again.

 

“What a distressing contrast there is between the radiant intelligence of the child and the feeble mentality of the average adult.”

Sigmund Freud

Miracles are real

Yes, that’s true. Miracles are real, and they can happen to you every second of your life, you just have to let them happen, and the only way to do that is believing. Believe that miracles are possible and they will be.

 

The only way to make something a reality is believing it will, no matter what is our situation right now, if you believe in something with all your heart, it will become a reality. Miracles are the way that faith has to say thank you, thank you for believing even when everything seemed to go in the opposite direction of your dreams.

If miracles were an illusion, we would be an illusion as well, because we are on this planet right now because a miracle happened, the wonderful miracle of life. This is not about religion, and I do believe in God, but it doesn’t matter in what you believe, the important thing here is to be able to see that we are here for a miracle of life, and in fact, we are that miracle, converted in humans.

 

“The whole world is a series of miracles, but we’re so used to seeing them that we call them ordinary things.” – Hans Christian Andersen

 

So why don’t believe in miracles when we are one of them? This life here with all its beauty it’s a miracle, and all of us, being the miracle of life and God, we have the power to create with our magnificent mind every outcome we want.

We see ourselves as a body and nothing else, that is why we focus all the time in the superficial part of everything, because that is what we can only see, we see everything that we can touch, so we only believe in things we can see with our eyes and not with our heart. We see what we believe, as we cannot see in our reality something we don’t believe to be real.

 

“There are two ways to live your life, one is as though nothing is a miracle, the other is as though everything is a miracle.” – Albert Einstein

 

So if we don’t start to focusing in the things that really matter, those things that we cannot see with our eyes, those things we believe they can’t be real, those things we only believe to be an illusion from our mind or an unreal story from a book, we are never going to see a miracle in our life, a dream come true, or nothing as possible, and so accepting the life we think to be real, a life that is far from miraculous.

So if you want to change your life, begin to believe, change your thoughts about yourself and your life, and you will change your whole world, and everything that you once thought to be impossible will then be possible, and you will open those doors that seemed to be sealed forever.

 

“Never lose hope, my dear heart. Miracles dwell in the invisible.” – Rumi

 

Miracles are real, we are miracles and we are real, dreams are possible and real, the life we want, we expect and the life we deserve is real and so is happiness, joy, kindness, loyalty, honesty, passion, success, freedom, peace and everything that human beings can feel for having one of the most wonderful miracles that exist in the whole world, the one that can change everything, the miracle of love.

Once again miracles are real, and the life you have ever dreamed of is also real, change then your beliefs, your thoughts and above all never lose faith, and you will see the miracles, you haven’t seen so far.

 

The life you want is waiting you to believe in it, it is waiting you to believe that everything is possible. Believe and a miracle will happen.

Happy New Year!

I would like to wish you a Happy New Year. The 2015 has arrived, and with that 365 days that give us 365 new chances to make our dreams a reality.

 

It doesn’t matter what happened in our life in 2014, that is now our past, so we have the chance to start again, to dream a new dream and to keep moving forward. Every New Year, life gives us the opportunity to reborn anew, to recreate ourselves and be a much better version than we have ever been before.

We have everything we need to become whoever we want to become and to achieve whatever we want to achieve, we have the power to create the reality we want, the one we deserve and the one we are capable of living. We must find that power within ourselves, we must find what motivates us, our purpose, our passion, and no matter what kind of situation we are going through, we must follow our heart and intuition no matter how hard our life gets, we must never give up!

I will repeat that again because it is very important for us to not forget those words: Never give up! Because I can guess that after so many years, most of you are still standing in the same place, wondering why you haven’t achieved your goals yet, and the answer is because you give up, and the worst thing is that most of you have quitted even before you start. So this year you have a new chance to do what you haven’t done before, decide that you will do whatever you can and that no matter what you will never give up again.

I know that some of you are looking at this New Year with fear, either because your last year was too good, or because it was awful, you are afraid because you don’t know if this new year is going to be as good as the old one, so because of fear, you remain attached to your past, not allowing yourself the opportunity to have a better one, or maybe your past year was not so good, and the fear you have inside doesn’t let you see the new opportunity you have now, blinded by insecurities and doubts.

So no matter how bad or how good your 2014 has been, there is always positive things to take from it even those positive things we take from awful situations, there is always something you can keep in your heart, the rest of it can go away and never come back to your mind, heart and soul.

How can I stay positive? Part II

Stay Positive
Hi everyone and thank you for reading! I really hope that my words can help you to have a wonderful and happy life! 🙂 So here is the second part of: How can I stay positive?

 

I was writing on the first part about Gratitude, a very useful and effective way to stay positive, if you learn to be grateful even in the hardest time, you will change your daily life experience in a second.

 

And so here comes the second cure for our short perception disease:

FOCUS

The problem of negativity is that it has a lot of power, and it will control you and your emotions if you let it do that. The solution? Stay focus in anything that makes you happy, whatever makes you smile, do that! And whatever makes you sad let that go!

 

“It is during our darkest moments that we must focus to see the light.” – Buddha

 

There are two types of situations in this world: The one we can change, and the one we can’t.

So if there is something that makes you be unhappy and you have the chance to change that, then change that, it might take time or not, depending on what you want, what is important is to be positive while you are doing that, knowing that someday, somehow, you will change that.
The other situation is the one that we cannot change, what is happening or what is going to happen is something that is a fact and you can’t do anything about it, so being negative and sad about, is not going to make any change, it will make you feel better? I guess that no, right? So why don’t you just focus on things that you can actually change, on things that makes you happy?

 

“The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.” – Socrates

 

The truth about everything is that what is happening out there it is already happening, you may be able to change that or maybe not, but how you feel about it is something that you can control, by allowing yourself to focus on what makes you smile, in those things that push you forward and cutting the ropes of what is holding you back. Let go those things, the ones you can’t change, and be positive, by focusing on what you can change, you need to stay positive, no matter what happens, there is always a motive to be happy.

 

“Always remember, your focus determines your reality.” – George Lucas

 

And here goes the third cure, a hard one, but a very effective one:

 

FAITH

Having faith is a very good way to stay positive, because by having faith is a way to say to yourself and express to the world that everything is possible, and maybe nothing seems good out there, but faith allows me to see light in the darkness, it is a way the soul has, to let you know that everything is going to be alright!
No matter in what you believe, the important thing is to not lose faith, if you lose that, you lose all kind of possibility to achieve what you want to achieve, because if you can’t see something as possible, if you can’t see that in your mind, and if you can’t feel it with all your heart and soul, then that is what are you going to experience.

 

“Faith is seeing light with your heart when all your eyes see is darkness.” – Anonymous

 

So no matter what is happening, have faith, anything you can imagine, you can achieve, it’s that simple, if you have faith even when your reality is not what you have dreamed of, have faith, because that’s what will make you feel better, and be positive, because you can’t see it now, but you know that is going to happen. So have faith and stay positive, knowing that nothing is going to remain as it is right now, no matter how bad it looks like.
And that lead us to the fourth and last cure and for that no less important, and that is:

 

ENERGY

Everything is energy, so if you want something, or if you want to change something, just give all energy to that, to things you want and love, to anything that makes you happy. The problem is that usually we give all the energy that we have to the things that we don’t want, and that is why we keep having the same feeling over and over again.
So if you want to stay positive in life, you need to give energy to positive things, because negativity is like a powerful magnet of energy, and if you let it control you, it will suck all your positive energy, leaving you weak, without any kind of strength to stay positive.

 

“Everything is energy and that’s all there is to it. Match the frequency of the reality you want and you cannot help but get that reality. It can be no other way. This is not philosophy, this is physics.” – Albert Einstein.

 

Whatever energy you give to the world, is what you are going to receive, so if you allow a situation to consume you, you will only give negative emotions and actions, having as a result more and more negativity back to yourself.
So no matter what is happening, just look beyond that, look around and see all the things for what you should be grateful for, focusing only in the things that makes you happy, having faith, knowing that anything will be alright and giving positive energy, and so you will light up all the darkness that your eyes are seeing right now, and receiving more and more positive things back to you, that will light up your heart, and will fill your empty soul.

 

Stay positive, always.
