Wake up & think positive
When you start out believing that any journey is going to be a disaster, the likely hood is that it will be a disaster. You have sent out a mental message of doubt to the universe around you and you have invited negativity into your day and to accompany you on the journey.
Starting the day may actually be the most difficult part of the day. Starting anything may be the most difficult part of any journey but once you get started then there is no stopping you, unless you want to stop or allow something or someone to stop you. Think about your own relationships and how they got started and the beauty to the journey that followed.
Doubt is a terrible thing and sometimes we go to sleep with doubt and tend to wake up with doubt. In so doing we create a relationship or an affair with doubt rather than a stable relationship with faith. It is faith that we all need to have a passionate relationship with for any journey that we embark on. It is faith that we need to start each day and not doubt. When doubt creeps into bed with you last thing at night or first thing in the morning, you have to kick doubt out of your bed and summon faith.
There are different kinds of strength and there are different sources to draw strength from but one of the greatest sources lies within you. Your mind is the fountain of faith and strength. The faith and the strength come from believing in yourself and a greater power than you that guides you and watches over you.
You have to believe in you. You have to believe in God. You have to believe in your Guardian Angels. You have to believe in the journey and you have to believe in the day that lies ahead. Believe in yourself, believe in your potential to do something great today, believe in others, put good thoughts into practice
and it will be a good day.
It is not when things are all honky dory that truly reflect who we are but when things appear to be falling apart. It is not when all the jigsaw pieces to our lives are nicely in place that define us but how we act and react when all the pieces appear to be falling apart or do not fit together.
The big questions are who are you and how are you under stress, and
when darkness befalls you or appears to surrounds you. Your mind and actions will either draw you more into darkness or guide you out of the dark storms.
Do not waste valuable time investing your energies where such investment is going to be a loss and you know it is. Do not squander your time thinking about what could have been but will be because you plan on directing your energy towards making it happen. Do not waste your time on regrets or dwelling on the past but focus it on the now and what you can do to change things. Focus your energy and your mind on what you can accomplish with the resources that you have your disposal. You can change things and you can accomplish some things, in spite of any situation.
There are a variety of ways that you can invest in yourself and some areas that you have to. Although money is important, It is not all about financial investment. It is also about making those investments that do not require much money. It is about taking care of yourself, about taking care of your health and investing your yourself with the right thoughts, in the right people, the right places and investing your time wisely.
A friend of mine joined the Gym today. They are getting more fancy and more expensive of course, but in spite of his financial situation he was able to find one at an affordable price. The objective was to invest in his health and fitness and he just took the right steps. In spite of our circumstances, our sometimes unfortunate circumstances or distractions, we have to take some time away from them to focus on what is important and invest in ourselves.
Wake up and invest in yourself. Wake up with the right mental attitude and direct your energies towards accomplishing a few things through the day. Wake up and take care of yourself. Wake up and go to the gym or for a walk. Wake up and do something that makes you feel fulfilled.
Each day has its own legacy and if to each day you can leave a positive fingerprint, you are building a great life investment platform for yourself and on your way towards leaving your own legacy.
Each day is a new day. Each day is of course a continuation of life but each new day is also an opportunity for change. Each new day is an opportunity for a new perspective and to do something different. If we keep on holding on to what was and keep on doing the same things over and over again, nothing changes. Nothing needs to change of course, if you are doing things right and you are perfectly happy with the way things are but if you are not happy with the way things are, there needs to be a shift.
The greatest shift that needs to take place has to take place in the mind. The mind is the generator of all our energies and the mind directs how we feel on any given day. If you can re-align your thoughts and help your mind with directions, that shift can take place.
Sometimes we wake up and look forward to the day with dread thus creating a negative mind frame.
Sometimes we wake up with dread and not even know why or wake up with dread because there is something to be afraid of. The better way to wake up is to wake up and have something positive to look forward to. It brightens up the day ahead.
Forget about what went wrong yesterday and think about all the things that could go well today and they probably will. Create something to look forward to or a picture of someone in your mind to look forward to seeing and the day will brighten up for you. You can even look forward to the end of the day, if you like
and you will get there before you know it. This is not to say that you should wish away the day but look forward to each moment and dwell in each moment as the end of the day approaches.
Stop looking at the clock everynow and again. Engage yourself, engage your mind, engage others and before you know it, your day is almost at an end and what you looked forward to has come to pass or is about to happen.
Create something in your mind to look forward to and it will be a great day. Make a practice of creating or having something to look forward to and life rarely has a dull moment. You become engaged to excitement.
