Don’t Let Anyone Steal Your Joy

“Before you diagnose yourself with depression or low self-esteem, first make sure that you are not, in fact, just surrounded by assholes.”

This quote has been attributed to Sigmund Freud, William Gibson and a host of others. I found it both straight to the point and funny. Whoever can take credit for it!

We all learn to keep certain people at arm’s length, or we allow them into our experience. Taking care to protect our emotions.

Learn to not allow toxic people to steal your joy. If needed these folks may need to exit your life if you deal with issues concerning them. You don’t have to allow that, ever!

Sometimes we have to move on from relationships to make room for the new. Changing seasons in our life will bring new friends, mentors and essential people that God sees fit to move into our life experience. Be open!

Embrace those that lift you up, challenge your status quo. Lots of people are searching for the same quality of life you are. I find great people at Church that follow a path of happiness.

meditation, yoga, peace

Find people that bring joy to your life. Don’t let anyone steal your joy!

Success Organize, Execute, Win!

“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.”–Winston Churchill

Everyone chases success most of their adult life. Certainly, I have. This is a double edge sword. On one hand, of course, we want to achieve success. On the other, we can sacrifice a life in order to achieve success. Balance do you have it?

Learn to be present in the moment in every aspect of your life! 

self help, success, happiness

When chasing dreams be sure that you balance work life and home life. Especially, when children are involved. I can tell you firsthand that kids want your attention and deserve it. Don’t sacrifice! Balance can be done, you just have to commit yourself.

You can have a successful career with life balance. Learning time management, no lollygagging during the day. Use a calendar to assign times to complete tasks. Read books on project management. Learn to prioritize.

Godspeed in your journey!

Halfway with a Decision, Half Done!

“Believe you can, and you’re halfway there.”–Theodore Roosevelt

prayer, thought, self help

If all it takes is belief to get us halfway there, what are you waiting for?

Belief, faith, and steps towards a solution no matter how small will make large leaps forward. Don’t fall into “it won’t happen for me” it will happen for you with some perseverance.

Put a smile on your face right now! Make the decision to be happy, move forward and get this party started!

 

Is Adversity happening to you or FOR YOU

“You’re going to go through tough times – that’s life. But I say, ‘Nothing happens to you, it happens for you.’ See the positive in adverse events.”–Joel Osteen

In our previous blog post, we talked about God being our coach. As you can see in this quote to paraphrase “nothing happens to you, it happens for you.” That’s my point entirely.

What happens for you is coaching. We need to learn from adversity. Look at this as though you trained really hard one day and now you’re so sore with pain it hurts. God as your coach is going to work you out to make you stronger. Good coaches push athletes to their limits. Same principal.

winning, happy, God

Why does God do this? If you’re going to run a Marathon and you cannot even make a mile, how can you expect to move forward with the race? You have to condition yourself, a coach will push you so that you can make the distance. It’s not God saying no, it’s God pushing you so he can say yes!

When I grasped this my life truly changed. All the stress went away, and I was anxious to go to practice as it were.

Ready for Change then Move, Go, Begin, Start, Andalae

“The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing.”–Walt Disney

When you begin the journey of changing your life. Many talk a good game, but few start the actual mission. Get off your butt today and let’s get moving.

happy, prayer, freedom

Baby steps to begin will help you gain momentum. Always have forward momentum. You will have struggles, own it! Just get moving.

Fear, doubt, all that will dissipate if you merely get moving. Start taking steps. Organize yourself, don’t confuse activity with productivity.

Use a calendar, task management tools to organize yourself. Track hour-to-hour your path. Leave time every day at least one FULL hour for your own growth. Do something that brings new knowledge.

Begin now, stop overthinking GO!!!
