Learn to Eliminate Unnecessary Things… and Enjoy Life

Life as a whole is better if you go slowly, and take the time to savor it, and appreciate every moment possible. That’s the simplest reason to slow down.

Full speed ahead! That’s how we live in our society. So it seems contradictory to our modern world, where everything is a rush, where we try to cram as much into every minute of the day as possible, where if we are not busy, we feel unproductive and lazy.

Always See Your Life As Being “INCREDIBLE”

If you were to get everything you wanted, now… all at once: What would there be to look forward to? What would there be to hope for? What would your future look like? What would you wait in expectation for tomorrow?

~ P. Williamson

 

I’ve notice that in the past, like many people, I was always wishing I was doing something different, thinking about what I would do in the future, making plans for my life to come, reading (with jealousy) about cool things other people were doing.

When Life Doesn’t Go Your Way… Don’t Settle For Less

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

In reality, life should not be a journey to the grave. It should be lived on purpose with the intent for it to be an exciting adventure.

Each day, it is important to remember that, life has put you in the driver’s seat … and you can travel in any direction you choose. But, being better… having better… and living better, will require strategic moves – in the right direction.

There’s an ever-present underlying feeling that most of us have that we could be doing things better. That we’re not sure how to live life. That we’re doing things wrong. That everyone else is better.

Don’t allow those types of thoughts to cause you to over-compensate, and do too much… by forcing things to happen for you too quickly. Be good at what you do… and give better things time to happen.

Try to improve your life… but don’t feel bad when things don’t change as rapidly as you expect them to. Also, never seek comfort in anything that will cause you to be distracted from what you know your true purpose to be.

Take a moment, sometimes, and pause where you are. Soak in the current state of the room where you are. Stay in tune with your own state of mind. Just notice what it feels like to be alive… and to have life.

Now see how this moment is enough. Just as it is. Without any need for improvement. It is a wonder, and there’s no need for more. Yet when there is a need for more, if you are doing all of the little things well that are right in front of you every day… then more will happen.

Remember this simple fact: When you have done all you can to do all you can, pray about it. Prayer changes things. Put the things in GOD’s hand that seem out of reach for you. Allow GOD to change those things in His own time for you, and you will come to realize that your life will turn out to be absolutely wonderful.

 

When You Make the Decision to Change… You Can’t Look Back

Fear of failure and change and discomfort and uncertainty are real … but they’re not good enough reasons for inaction. They can all be overcome. I’ve dealt with them, and so have thousands, millions of others. You’re no worse than me or anyone else — you can face these fears.

The key is… you have to follow GOD. When you make the decision to change… you can’t look back. You have to listen closely to HIS voice, and then follow what HE’s saying to you. From that point, you have to follow the DREAM HE has put inside you. Continue reading When You Make the Decision to Change… You Can’t Look Back

Learn To Enjoy Life For What It Is…

We always want things to be different. We don’t know why… we just do. So, we strive to improve things – even ourselves – when we are unsatisfied with how things are. But then what? Most times, we are still unsatisfied, because the underlying cause of our problems isn’t the things around us, but it’s our expectation of things.

Over Commitment of Your Time, Can Drain You…

“I wish I had more time!” That’s what most people are accustomed to saying whenever they have too much to do… but not enough time, seemingly, to do everything they want to do. It’s an overwhelming feeling. However, it’s just a feeling. Everyone has the same amount of time, but somehow, most people fill up the container of their days with too much stuff.

You’re not obligated to do everything just because you think you have to do it. When you realize you’re trying to fit too much stuff (tasks, errands, obligations) into a small container (24 hours), it becomes obvious that you can’t get a bigger container … so you have to get rid of some stuff. Everything just won’t fit. Therefore, you have to always think simplifying what you have to do. Continue reading Over Commitment of Your Time, Can Drain You…

Dare to Be Different. That’s The Best Part of Life…

It’s okay to be unique. GOD did not create you to be a copycat, or to be a carbon copy of someone else. You will find that with a little creativity, and a lot of faith, any difference can be turned into something amazing. Your difference is your power.

The normal way of doing things is often not the only way, nor the best way.

Ever been stuck in a rut of doing things a certain way, because that’s the way everyone else does things, or because that’s how it’s always been done? Because it’s safe. Continue reading Dare to Be Different. That’s The Best Part of Life…
