What Others Think

caring-what-others-think-2One of the most common blocks people face in accomplishing their goals is the worry about what others think of your choices, behaviors or talents. How often have you stopped doing something because you didn’t want to look foolish or be picked on by someone else?

This is a limiting thought that can be easily changed if you start to focus on what you are doing in the moment and forget what others might be thinking about it, you will enjoy life a whole lot more and find success as well. There are several simple reasons that this is true.

What Choice or Free Will?

Constantly people are faced with challenges and situations which always give them a key experience or understanding that they need to accomplish a goal or create something that never could have been accomplished without it.  Did you make choices about your actions or was it your destiny?

The Ability to Think

thinkOne of the things that all people can do is think. Some of us do a better job than others at this skill but we all do create thousands of thoughts each and every day. In all of this thought creation, it is fun to look at how the brain actually works. We can only hold one thought in our mind at a time, the tenor of that thought is going to affect us through a chemical reaction in the brain, so how you think can literally affect your health and quality of life.

Wish I knew

What do you wish you spent more time doing Ten years ago?

Five years ago, life was very different.
Five years ago, life was very different.

Ten years brings many changes to life, I have changed jobs a few times, moved to new locations, and changed my entire outlook on life.

Looking back,  it is kind of amazing that so many experiences came to me in the short period of a few years.

Now, like most people looking through the lens of experience, there are many things I wish that I had been doing earlier in my life. But all is a process and you have to follow them step by step. What seems like wasted time is really time to learn.  A few of these lessons follow.

Appreciate The Flip Side

the flip side of lifeOnce I looked at life and only wanted the good things in my experience.  I think everyone would feel the same way, no sadness, no loss or grief, just happy things that are easy to deal with, yet we all know that life is not going to come as easily as that.  We all must go through some difficult times and I think that is OK because you will never appreciate the good in life unless there is the opposite aspect to compare it to. There is always a flip side.

Be Confident In You

Being Confident In Life Is a Choice

Although I have trouble sometimes with certain concepts, one thing has confidence-is-a-choice-to-act-or-to-do-or-to-decide-quote-1become abundantly clear.  Being Confident in life is a choice.

Confidence stems from the conscious decision to accept yourself for what you are and to not let your weaknesses rule over your strengths.   Can it really be that simple?  The answer is apparently a loud and emphatic YES!

 

Let’s face it, we are all people, and all people are constructed to have a list of strengths and weaknesses that we are born with.  Everybody is in the same boat.
