The way you think is shaping your world.

September 24, 2018. Our ability to think is what is moulding and shaping our reality. If your thinking is anxious, you will create more feelings of anxiety. If your thinking is negative, you will create more negativity in your life. If in your thinking you’re doing a lot of complaining, you will create in your life more things to complain about. You have to learn to think to yourself in a softer and more positive way.

The best way you can learn to become a more positive thinker, is by spending 15 minutes every day practicing thinking positive thoughts to yourself. Just get yourself comfy, either sat or lay down, and firstly take a few deep breaths. Once you’ve done that, now scan your body to release all the tension from your muscles. Now begin to list in your mind, over and over, things that you’re grateful for. ”I appreciate my…Β I’m so grateful for… I love to feel…’‘. Just keep finding positive thought after positive thought. It may be a little bit slow and forced at first, but you will get better and better and start to gain momentum.

By doing this regularly you will start to become much more disciplined in your mind and thoughts. You will start to become more aware of when your mind slips into complaining, or when it is generally getting more negative, and then you will get better at being able to talk yourself back to a more positive state of mind.

Little changes in your thinking will create massive shifts in your life.

Think positively. Think constructively.

Celebrate life.

September 3, 2018. We should all do this a little more. Sometimes I think we all fall into the trap of taking ourselves and life too seriously. At times it’s important to just stop and remind ourselves that life is supposed to be fun, that life isn’t supposed to be serious, and that we should try to enjoy our day to day experience a little bit more.

Moving forward in our lives let’s make it our goal to celebrate the simplicity of life. Even if you’re at work, even if you’re doing chores all day that you’d rather not be doing, just smile and be grateful to just be here experiencing life. When you stop and reflect and think about it, things are never as bad as they seem. One thought that I try to remind myself when my mood dips is that no matter how I feel right now, there are still millions of people all over the world who would rather be in my shoes. No matter how bad it seems, there are still people worse off.

Dream big. Start small.

August 24th, 2018. Don’t be scared to dream big, but you got to start small. Don’t get lost trying to create a massive vision of what you want without getting practical and putting it into action one step at a time. If you’ve got a big goal or vision, you’ve got to break it down and build a step by step process of how you’re going to get there. You’ve then got to get practical and start working through those steps one at a time. Too many people, especially young people who think they can do anything, have a big vision, but quickly become overwhelmed because they have no real process outlined in terms of how they’re going to do it. I think it’s great to have push yourself to build big and wonderful things with your life that can help and bring value to the world, but you’ve got to get practice in terms of how you’re going to do it. Remember nothing happens over night. It takes consistent action over a long period of time (making small improvements every day) to create anything big. This applies to business or sport.

So reach for the stars. Really get clear on who you are, how you can bring the most value to the world, and what you would really like to create with your life. Then get practical about how you’re going to do it.

Show yourself that you can do it and it will no longer scare you. Then move on to the next thing. Just keep learning and improving.

Working on and improving yourself is one of the most satisfying things you can do that will make you feel much more at peace within yourself.
