Replace Your S** t Habits With Good Ones

I kept on seeing and hearing the name Simon Sinek being projected in my head.

Simon Sinek.

As if stuck in the frontal lobe of my brain.

Simon Sinek.

All this, haunting, while trying to sleep.

So here I am, writing about him.

I don’t know much about him.

He was first brought to my attention by a business partner who has a background in medicine.

Google Sinek.

From the little I know of him is that he’s a speaker.

He speaks about most about leadership. On what defines a leader and what drives her. Reasons why they are true leaders. Amongst other things.

He’s available on different social media sites, I also follow him on Twitter and IG.

He’s an author as well, he wrote Start With Why.

And there are lots of videos on the ‘Tube that have he’s talks.

I think there’s a vid of one of his talks I posted in one of my blogs that I thought was awesome.

There’s a bias that comes with being a leader that I want to take advantage of.

The monetary benefits of being paid to solve problems being one of them.

It’s as if followers create problems while leaders get paid to solve them.

So I’ve been listening to some of his audios as well. Him, John Maxwell and Gary Vaynerchuk are the 3 guys I’ve been filling my head with of late.

And Eric Thomas. #TGIM

I guess I can be obsessed with certain things in my life, such as my personal development.

If I don’t invest the time for it, noone else will.

Then I will just be like the rest of them, blaming my job or spouse or community or the government or the gods for my current, undesirable situations.

Not realising that the true problem here is me.

I fix me, all else gets fixed.

It’s an inside job.

Take Care of The Garden of Your Thoughts

plum-blossom-roofline-graybox__page-header-gallery

Trying to get this blog thing going. but I’m coming from a dark place.

Think when you allow yourself to be ruled by your emotions then you will be at their mercy.

It’s a special kind of laziness when you don’t take control of your thoughts.

And you go through the emotions.

We sometimes forget that how what we think, creates our lives.

Yup, that’s what As A Man Thinketh says.

Free download on Play Store or iStore.

It’s like reverse engineering.

Believing before you see it.

Reminds of a Dr. Dyer book title.

If you are looking for a certain outcome then you need to see it before you can have it.

By exposing yourself to things that are in alignment with what you seek.

Before you can have it in your hand, you need to see it in your mind. ~ Bob Proctor

Change your environment.

Hang around those people you want to see yourself becoming.

Read about the things you want for yourself often.

Add pictures around you that correspond with the things you want to attract.

Sometimes the things we take for granted are the things that are of most value.

They don’t cost much, but they are priceless.

Like your thoughts.

Every now and again we need to remove the weeds that grow in the garden of our thoughts.

So they don’t cross pollinate with the other wonderful thoughts that grow in your garden.

~ Musa

Proven Methods of Self-Improvement Because of Their Ability to Rewire Your Brain… 

I’ve been meaning to write another article about affirmations.

About what are affirmations and affirmation examples I use to when writing them out.

But I wasn’t writing them out of late.

Trust me I’m no affirmations expert or anything.

All that I blog about are from things I’ve read or experienced that I’m sharing with you, in the hopes that you would jump on it to add to your personal growth.

Like in this case, I’m sharing the wisdom I’m reading over the Think and Grow Rich book.

It says that written affirmations that are read out loud daily and with emotion do wonders towards building faith in the achievement of the things you are affirming.

Because a repeated statement you tell yourself increases your belief about that statement.

And the stronger your belief the better your chances of getting it.

How?

Like Jim Rohn says,don’t take that class.

But if really want to know then my suggested reads are The Science Of Getting Rich and Think and Grow Rich. 

They explain the mechanics that come with the power of faith through repeated affirmations, and how they can work for you too.

Reminds me of a list of affirmations that I got from a gorgeous lady I had a crush on, but I was too possessive and she was also seeing someone so I stopped heckling her because it was getting too much and I wanted more but she didn’t, it was a mess shame… Drama. 

Anyways read that shit. 

It will change your life. 

I’m sorry. 

Please forgive me. 

I love you. 

Thank you.

How to Be the Captain of Your Ship

What is your objective?

What do you want to achieve?

What is your intention?

What DO you want?

Because when you’re focused and clear on the “what” the “how” will show up.

And all that you need to do from there is to take advantage of the opportunity that will show up for you.

You must put all your energy in the “what.”

You must put aside the anxiety & worry & fear & doubt that comes with figuring the “how.”

You must visualize and imagine and see in your mind’s eye the end result of what you would like to see happen.

Your end objective.

Write it down every morning when you wake up.

Write it down every evening when you go to bed.

Let your brain attract ways, better and easier ways, of attracting it for you.

And that’s just one way to actively use the Law of Attraction.

Stay focused and the Law will honor your focus with opportunities for you to take inspired action on.

I love you.

Thank you.

5 Reasons Why It Is That Some Are Blessed More Than Others

Reason #1

It could be as simple as because they practice the discipline of thanksgiving every day. Oh ja that reminds me:
(1) I am thankful for witnessing the joy in my mother’s face and the dancing moves she and my aunts were making to the tune of the Christmas spirit because it filled my heart with that warm fuzzy feeling that at times feels foreign to me. It puts me back into the Vortex.

(2) I am thankful for the relationships I have and continue to establish because they put me in a position & choice to give love to them which in turn makes me experience happiness. And I think that is what life is all about: “Finding” Happiness.

(3) I am thankful for for my family because I see it in their eyes that they would move mountains for me to make sure that I am happy, loved, safe & well taken cared of. And I love them for that.

Reason #2

Now that is out of the way, I believe some are more blessed than others become they give blessings to all things, good or bad.

Because they know, in some form or another, that in whatever it that is happening there is a good reason behind it, even if at first sight there IS nothing good about it.

It is as if they know, in some way, that we all live in an orderly universe and all things make sense, or return back to order, eventually it’s just a matter of riding it out until you do.

Reason #3.
Why is it that some are blessed more than others? Maybe it;s because they have faith. No actually we all have faith, what we need to strengthen is having faith in things going right for us, even against all odds, than having faith in things going wrong for us.
I used to be under the charge of a team leader who, no matter what happened, she turned projects or tasks or instructions from management into negative things. Always making sure we knew were she stood on the matter, which was not in a positive light mostly (come to think of it I wonder why she hasn’t linked this negative thinking to her wavering health…oh well), even if it was good news.
She did it so well that even some of her/ my team members adopted her thinking. It was an amazing thing to watch, that was.
How suggesting a certain way of looking at something to someone can, with persistence, influence that person’s view of life. Subtle yet effective. Thank God I am an active reader of Think And Grow Rich.
Reason #4

I guess maybe that’s another reason reason why some are more blessed than others, maybe it is because they hang around with people who FEEL blessed and make it vocal of how fortunate they are to be breathing, to have a job or money coming in that puts food on the table or have an idea of what they want out of life and have a plan that they are executing to reach those goals or other “insignificants” they make significant.

(It reminds me of a Jim Rohn article about Evaluating Associations, Part 1 and you read also read Evaluating Associations, Part 2 here.)

You know, those people that achieve things that some of us are jealous of that we eventually equate their success with sleeping with the boss, drug dealings, the devil, corruption, luck, silver spoons, jean sizes, the stars, witchcraft, etc?
It’s funny how that works isn’t it?
How people criticize that which they want to become and wonder why they aren’t getting it? Yes I meant “getting it” in both ways.
You can’t expect to become something you don’t like. You brain won’t allow it.

The brain is set up to make you avoid things that would harm you. It’s like your on-board survival kit. So if you bad mouthing things tells the brain that those are the things you want to avoid, then you turn around and yearn for them?

The logic, pun unintended, behind that thinking, pun intended, is screwy.

Reason #5.

They see themselves as blessed. This line of thinking most see as arrogance, I see it as Deliberate Creation – regularly “acting as if” until life gives you ways of actually living and become the things you are acting out. I have come to a point where I don’t give a hoot what others say, especially when it comes to getting what I want in life so this reason works best for me.

“A belief is only a thought you keep thinking.” – Abraham-Hicks
So keep thinking a thought until you believe, i.e. affirm everyday of every morning and every night the words, “I am blessed” and therefore you are.
And if the above doesn’t come easy for you, then I invite you to work at it until it does. You have everything to gain and nothing to lose when you do.

How To Turn Your MS Word Docs Into PDFs…Well It’s At Least One Of The Ways

I always wondered how I could convert my Microsoft Office into a PDF.

Pat O’Bryan said I must try OpenOffice.org but, as we all know, the internet moves so fast that some of the sites you have as referrals get pulled from the net.

So I Googled “PDF GENERATOR” and out came http://www.anything2pdf.com amongst the list.

God bless Daniel Procter who happens to be a web developer over at http://www.danielprocter.com/ if that might interest you.

So I tried turning one of my MS Word docs into Adobe format and presto!

I can now go and show off to my friends on how techno savvy I am 😀

Been having some rough couple of weeks lately with me having to establish sources of income from thin air after quitting my job before settling my debts and car payments.

The days of having a job are played out in anyway so going back to a 9 to 5 would be going against the tide.

I built my castle in the air so now I guess it’s time to begin building the foundations beneath it.

How knows, maybe I will use http://moneyfromanywhere.com/ and sell ebooks for a living *cough cough* 🙂

PS. This is why I love the readers of this blog, they have my back. Please read the comments below, it seems I was to early in dissing OpenOffice.org. Thank you again Kathryne Joy xoxoxo

I Wondered, “What Else Makes Successful People So Successful?” And It Came To Me, They Are Successful Because They Are Courageous

“Success means having the courage, the determination, and the will to become the person you believe you were meant to be” – George Sheehan

There is a certain level of guts that one must have to set goal for herself, especially when she is surrounded by family & friends that are not accustomed to goal setting.

There was a time when I thought all I had to do was set goals for myself and that’s all I had to do to become successful.

i.e. I used to just think about what I wanted to achieve and just leave it at that. I was led to believe that this was not goal setting, only wishful thinking.

I’ve come across people who don’t have constructive goals in their lives. The aim at nothing, and they achieve nothing all the time, and my way of “achieving” success was no better.

As it turns out not only do I need to have goals of what I would want or become or do in my life but I need to develop the plans of successfully achieving these goals that I wanted.

That takes another calling up of those same guts I brought to the par the time I decided to want to achieve major goals that will affect my life and those of my family in a positive way.

It takes courage to have goals.

It takes courage to even think about writing out a plan on how to reach these goals.

But hold on to your hats folks ’cause that’s not all, we need to woman up YET again, and call up this long distance friend by the name of Courage – who I would like to name as my 13th Disciple – for another round.

Because now that (1) we have goals, now that (2) we have plans of what we believe needs to happen for us to achieve these goals, we need to put the hammer to the nail and (3) take action on the plans we have setup for ourselves, and we do this so that we can reach the reason for all this effort (what Earl Nightingale calls “paying the price”), our goals.


So not only do I have to have the courage to even think about goals I want to achieve but I have to make plans for their realisation? And not only that, but I now I have to take action on the plans I have conjured up in order for me to reach my goals?

So much courage for someone like me how was conditioned to confirm and accept my fears as the master to which I was a slave to, is all too much too ask, I once thought.

That was all good and well until there was this rage inside of me that consumed me into taking action.

The anger that motivated me into action.

I used to cower in a little corner every time I feared to do something about my circumstances, to change them to the way I saw fit.

I saw that I can’t change my circumstance so I changed ME first. And in that change I felt I needed to leave my undesired circumstance so to become something greater.

And every time I took that first step towards change fear rocks up and had me curling up like a pathetic conformist with an entitlement mentality, depending on a system that won’t think twice of coughing me out all in the name of profit.

But as I continued reading self development books and listening to self help audios, watching motivational videos on YouTube and attending seminars that spoke about vehicles I can use to achieve “financial freedom”, and over time I came to a point where a part of me just snapped.

I lost it and said to hell with it. I stood up from that corner, with my body shaking in absolute fury, I pointed my finger at fear and said, “TO HELL WITH YOU!”

And with that I took the courage I have always had and did the unthinkable. And freed myself from, as it turns out, a fear that a lot of people I was associated with were enslaved by.

I broke through my chains and I was surprised at how is it was.

It reminded me of that David and Goliath story of how just one swing took out the fear that every one else was making such a fuss about.

How just that one swing was able to rebuke the illusion of fear out of my sight.

But I have to admit it took some courage from my part.

Little courage, small courage, it’s a semantics. Mountain or ant hill it’s all in how you look at it.

Take action.

That’s all you need to do to successfully eliminate your fears. Take action. Do the thing that you fear and you will become a stronger person as you make your way towards your heart’s desire, as you slice your way through the Goliaths of your life.

Take that swing towards Goliath and liberate yourself from yourself.

But don’t be surprised by how many of them pop up to intimidate you when faced with another situation that stirs you to action.

It’s those disciplined swings you need to take ever so constantly that might take you off your game for a moment but always remember your sling, who knows, you might get so good at it that they would start leaving you alone.
