How To Show Up & Be Willing … So You Can Make A Huge Impact On Your Life

To live the life you want and deserve, you must be WILLING to show up!

What do we mean by this?

Put the effort in, make things happen, be willing to do what it takes!

In many of my blog posts, I write about the Law of Attraction: what we think we are … we become. The Universe reflects back to us our key thoughts, whether these are positive or negative.

But there are situations where you have to be willing to put in the effort: you can’t write a book if you don’t start writing … there are many things that are in your own hands. You have to be consistent, you have to show up and be willing.

When you’re willing; when you show up the Universe will have your back. Keep your thoughts positive, don’t begrudge the effort you have to put in. Be pleased with yourself. Pat yourself on the back. If you constantly believe you are not good enough, or you haven’t achieved what you wanted to achieve, you are putting this out to the Universe … and guess what .. the Universe will agree with you. You will feel as if you’re not getting anywhere, that treadmill will just keep going.

Be willing to praise yourself. Be proud that you are getting closer to your goal. Be willing to do what needs to be done.

If it helps, make notes of the things you have achieved and tick things off your to-do list. You’ll be surprised when you start noting down the things you are achieving. The more consistent you are and the less procrastinating you do, you will find you have more energy and fighting spirit.

 

 

Here are some quotes from some very successful people:

Perseverance is failing 19 times & succeeding the 20th …

-Julie Andrews-

I start early, and I stay late, day after day, year after year, it took me 17 years and 114 days to become an overnight success.

-Messi-

No matter how talented you are, your talent will fail you, if you’re not skilled. Skill is achieved through practice. Work hard and dedicate yourself to being better every single day.

-Will Smith-

The key to realizing a dream is to focus not on success but on significance — and then even the small steps and little victories along your path will take on greater meaning.

-Oprah Winfrey-

Some people want it to happen, some people wish it would happen, others make it happen.

-Michael Jordon-

I can look back on my life, where there have been moments where things might have gone the other way. Everything is like stepping stones, and I’ve seen people I admire falter. We’re all vulnerable.

-Hugh Jackman-

You control your own life. Your own will is extremely important …

-J.K Rowling-

Every hero doesn’t do this great big hero thing. They do the simple thing over and over… and they stick to it!

-Matthew McConaughey-

Luck has nothing to do with it, because I have spent many, many hours, countless hours, on the court working for my one moment in time, not knowing when it would come.

-Serena Williams-

I’m convinced that about half of what separates successful entrepreneurs from the non-successful ones is pure perseverance.

-Steve Jobs-

Here are 12 ‘BE WILLING TO’ tips:

  • Be willing to say NO!
  • Be willing to say YES!

10 Quotes To Encourage You To Celebrate Your Victories Not Your Defeats

Credit: Image by Mohamed_Hassan on Pixabay

When I wrote the previous blog on victory, I was in two minds whether to actually choose V is for Victory on the A-Z Inspirational Blog.

Because here’s the thing … the definition of victory as set-out by Merriam-Webster  (https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/victory) : It defines victory as: conquest, and triumph means success in a competition or struggle. Victory is used for a win over an opponent or over difficult problems.

I like to think of the word victory as in competing against yourself. Pushing yourself, beating your own limitations, setting goals and smashing them. Victory is about celebrating your achievements. Concentrating on your successes, no matter how big or small they are. Small steps count. Each step you take today brings you closer to your goal. Those small steps are your biggest victories. Smashing through small victories every day will ensure you reach those big victories.

If you want to see further how you can be celebrating your victories and not focusing on your defeats, see the previous post on V is for Victory here, this also includes a therapeutic writing exercise

10 Ways To Nourish Your Mind

Are you nourishing your mind?

In my last blog post on N is for Nourish, I talked about the importance of nourishing the mind. So this week, I thought I’d talk about ways in which you CAN nourish your mind.

When your mind is nourished, your body and soul will follow. Having a healthy mind is the first steps to having a healthy body & soul. Looking after your mind’s wellbeing is the key to living a happy life.

So here are some ways you can give your mind some TLC:

1.GO FOR A WALK

This is one of my favourites. Getting some fresh air is a great way to feel refreshed because it provides energy and the oxygen intake allows us to feel better. So a twenty-minute walk a day can really help to fight negative emotions, feelings and thoughts.

2. READ / LISTEN TO AUDIO BOOKS

Being a writer, I’m an avid reading. As much as I love fiction, I also love spiritual, inspirational and motivational books. Books that really help me grow and connect with my inner-self & guides. So if I am walking, I will stick on my headphones and listen to books about angels, past-lives, soul-development, living with passion etc. Being certified in the Law of Attraction, I practice mindfulness daily. It truly is important to keep our thoughts positive. When our minds are fresh and in a good place, as the Law of Attraction tells us, we’ll attract good things to us.

3. READ POSITIVE MESSAGES/QUOTES & AFFIRMATIONS

You will find endless positivity on my blog and my shop. When times were at their worst; I was pregnant with our second child, living at my in-laws (because my ex-husband’s business had taken a downward slope practically overnight), we had no idea when we would be able to afford to move out … it was all a bit of a mess! My own family weren’t around to support and it was a very hard time. However, it was at this point in my life when I started to collect inspirational quotes. I would write them down onto a spreadsheet and I couldn’t believe how much it helped.

I realised I had so much to be grateful for. I was pregnant with our 2nd child, how could I not be relishing in this love. We were so lucky that we didn’t need treatment, that I fell pregnant so easily (trust me, if anyone knows anything about depression and sex-drive, you’ll get that we were VERY lucky to fall pregnant so easily!). I was extremely grateful for that. We had a roof over our heads and my in-laws were so lovely, they really looked after us.

So once, I started to look at life from a gratitude point of view, my world changed. It wasn’t long before my husband got a business opportunity and we moved into a 2-bedroomed house, which we rented, but I was so grateful that we had the opportunity to move our life forward & not look at the negative. Since then, I read positive quotes & affirmations daily & I create my own. Hence the reason I set-up my online shop, as I feel it is important to surround yourself with reminders that you do have so much love to give and so much to be grateful for. You can also download my free inspirational messages book, which will show you how to make your own inspirational box.

4. WRITE DOWN POSITIVE MESSAGES/QUOTES & AFFIRMATIONS

As above, it’s just as important to write down quotes & affirmations. I think this really helped me. Just putting them into a spreadsheet. I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with them, but it truly helped. I did eventually make them into ‘annual quote a day’ books, and the process truly helped. It still does now. I’m a true believer this really works. In fact, my own quote is:

‘Positive messages throughout the day help to keep the negative thoughts away.’

You don’t need to use a spreadsheet, you can use a notebook or something that will inspire you. Buy a blackboard or a noticeboard and write down an affirmation/quote for the day. This will help the whole family come from a place of love and believe in themselves. Perfect for inspiring children. Just like the downloadable inspirational quotes will help to lift our children so that they become well-rounded adults who believe in themselves.

5. THERAPEUTIC WRITING

Now, this is my thing! Being an author, of course, I love writing and I love writing my inspirational blog, so I’m bound to say writing helps. But it’s actually a renowned form of therapy. It’s a great way to explore your emotions. The best way is to simply write, without thinking about WHAT you are writing. Just write. It’s like allowing your mind to be released of any pent-up frustrations. The best of it is, with therapeutic writing, you don’t need to be the best writer, best speller or know your grammar, because that’s not what it is about. It’s about writing for you and releasing toxic thoughts.

You will find writing prompts in my A-Z positive word blog.

Just pick a letter you’d like to work on, read the quotes and have a go at the exercise.

I found it also helps, that once my thoughts have been released, is to then think about what I want from a situation, so I write a ‘fantasy page’, I put out my desires to the universe but on paper, as if I’ve already received them, as if my desires have already happened and how that makes me feel. The thing with the Law of Attraction is, people struggle with imagination, so by writing down how something would make you feel, it’s easier to imagine it. It’s not only a great way to release, but it’s a great way to bring joy into your life. Experts at League City Integrative Counseling and Wellness will offer you guidance and expert advice.

6. LISTEN TO MUSIC / MEDITATE

When many people hear the word meditation, they believe that they can’t meditate, because they can’t sit still for five minutes and think of nothing. Admittedly, I found this a struggle at first, but after trying guided meditations I soon learned how to meditate alone. However, I found that music can be a huge avenue to relaxation, I found this out when I went to a Gabrielle Bernstein seminar. She played, ‘Titanium’ by Madilyn Bailey, she asked us all to stand up, close our eyes, put our hands in the air and feel the music … even as I write this I get shivers.

The feeling of joy and calmness filled my body. Since then, I truly listen to the music. I truly listen to the words and feel the music. A great way to listen to music is when you are out walking or when you are in the car (obviously not to close your eyes, but to feel it) … my girls and I are always blasting music and singing at the top of our voices. They had a friend in the car just yesterday, we blasted some music, we sang, we got our groove on … her friend said, ‘I never want to leave this car.’ It’s amazing how much a good sing-song can release those endorphins … so choose some of your favourite songs and get blasting those vocal cords.

7. START A PROJECT OF LOVE

Do something you love. This could be a scrapbook of a holiday, party or significant life event. Put aside some time to create something. If you’re not a creative person, do something that makes you happy. A passion project that will have you excited.

8. DECLUTTER / MAKE SPACE

This is kind of a given in the world of feng-shui. Clutter and mess can cause disorganisation. Now, I always say I have an ‘organised mess’ because I know where everything is, however, I have to admit I do work better when I’m not surrounded by wildness (I don’t mean nature, although, often feels like I’m sat in the middle of a zoo). There’s a wonderful feeling when you clear out the clutter that is causing your mind to feel like a chaotic roundabout. So book a day in your diary and clear out those cupboards … you may have things you can give to charity or for a car boot sale, whichever, you will feel such a calming release once you are decluttered.

9. INDULGE IN A CROSSWORD/WORDSEARCH/SUDOKU/JIGSAW PUZZLE

This to some people may sound extremely boring, but trust me, these activities truly work. Find something that you’re interested in, even sitting down to a colour therapy book is a great way to switch off, because your mind is concentrating on the task at hand, so other worries can be pushed to the back of your mind.

10. LIMIT TECHNOLOGY TIME

In this day and age, this last one is like swearing at people. How on earth did we live without such technology? When I was a teenager, I remember sitting on the stairs to use the house phone and making sure my sister didn’t pick up the other phone to listen in on our conversation. How times have changed? Don’t get me wrong … I do love the way technology has moved on and things we can do today are amazing, it makes running a business much easier: I can sit in my car on the school run and work on my phone – however, there comes a point when it’s too much. One of the sayings we’ve used as a family is, ‘When in the room, be in the room!’ This means, engage with each other. Make time for each other. Listen to each other. Spend time without our heads in any kind of technological device.

Uplifting Quotes To Keep Your Mind Positive

Are you controlling your mind, or is it controlling you?

Our minds are so powerful, you might not even know the answer to this question.

We spend much of our days going from one thing to another, daily tasks being fulfilled, starting our day on the mission we intended and when the day is over, sometimes we’ve achieved that mission and other days, not so much. We can end our days tired and worn out, wondering what it’s all about. This is where you’re letting your mind control you. You are letting your thoughts wander, we let our outer world take over our inner selves. We get caught up in life, expectations, demands, deadlines, pressures that we forget actually we have control.

We have the ability to control our lives, control our thoughts, control our destination.

We get to choose HOW we respond to things that are happening in our lives.

When you really think about this, it’s extremely powerful!

The Law of Attraction is always working … therefore whatever you’re thinking about, you are putting out to the Universe and the Universe is delivering those thoughts back to you in situations, circumstances, etc. So, again, if you read the imagination blog post, have a go at playing the imagination game.

Usually, we can take command of our thoughts because we notice our mood isn’t as high as we would like it to be … if you’re feeling this way, ask yourself why you feel this way … but then don’t let yourself dwell on this. I understand it’s not as easy as, ‘snap out of it,’ that’s why thinking in a positive light is something to work on for yourself. Once you start realising your negative thoughts are bringing your emotions down, you will soon be able to adapt these thoughts. The quickest way to turn this around is appreciation. Once you look at life with abundance and fulfilment, you’ll soon wipe out those feelings of lack. So train your mind to come from a place of love and gratitude and watch your world change.

My previous blog post about controlling your mind features a therapeutic writing exercise and much more, have a go now

Quotes To Help Jump Start Your Day

Are you jumping into your life? Or are you dragging through at snail pace?

Your morning alarm goes off … how do you respond? Snooze five million times until the last second hits you? Jump for joy at your wonderful day ahead? Or somewhere in-between?

My mornings vary between all three. Sometimes I snooze simply because I’ve worked late the night before (if this is the case, whatever my work was involving, blogging, creating workbooks, marketing, writing … whichever, I would have chosen to work late as I would have been thoroughly enjoying what I was doing). So even when I snooze, it’s a nice cosy feeling, it’s not a feeling of, ‘OMG, I CAN’T FACE THE DAY!’ It’s a feeling of, I’m so lucky, I get to grab an extra few minutes kip.

Sometimes life takes over and we forget there’s so much to be excited about. If you don’t feel this, then it’s time to create something to be excited about. Imagine the universe can deliver anything you want … ANYTHING! What would you jump out of bed for? What would really get your juices pumping? What would give you a reason to not press that snooze button, unless you felt lucky enough to just press it, because you can?

If you’d like to know more about how to jump into life and ignore the fear, you can read my blog post here. It also includes quotes, tips and a therapeutic writing exercise to help you take a leap of faith.

If you’d also like to surround yourself with quotes that will remind you to take the jump, you can visit my online shop for downloadable prints.

Live life to the fullest … do what you can with what you have … be grateful for all the opportunities that come your way … jump into the opportunities that serve you! Take the leap and have faith … if you don’t jump you’ll never know how close you were to making your dreams come true.

Inspirational Quotes To Help You Stay Focused

Do you find it hard to stay focused?

Do you find yourself procrastinating? Do you have lots of things you are juggling and find it hard to prioritise?

Staying focused can be a hard task to achieve if you’ve got 101 things running through your mind. We often have work, family and other commitments to adhere to. However, if you have a goal or a dream you would like to fulfil, it’s important to put steps in place to ensure you achieve your desires. Small steps count. So if it’s only the smallest of steps, baby steps, it’s better than no steps at all. Little by little you will focus on the outcome. If it helps to put small goals in place to achieve your bigger goals, then do this. This most definitely helps with staying focused.

As always you can read my previous post on staying focused, where you can have a go at the therapeutic writing exercise.

Focus on what you have achieved. Focus on the positive aspects of life. Drown out the negativity with your determined focusing.

YOU GOT THIS!

Another way to help you stay focused is to surround yourself with positivity.

You can download and print these 7 Quotes that will help you stay focused. Frame them and place around your home or office.

Sometimes we can become overwhelmed with certain tasks that need fulfilling, but once we focus on what we want, it’s easier to overcome any obstacles or challenges, because we focus on the wonderful outcome. On my own life mission that everyone remains true to themselves and forever positively focused, you can download this free guide and make your own inspirational box.

How To Concentrate On Your Victories, Not Your Defeats – A to Z Inspirational Blog; V is for Victory with Victorious Quotes and Therapeutic Writing

A-Z Inspirational Journey 

This week’s inspirational word

V IS FOR VICTORY

We can feel victory in certain areas of our life, but our aim is to feel victorious in all areas of our life. Now, yes, this may mean hard work is needed in certain areas. But read the quote above …

I do love this quote, because if you have the fight in you; if you refuse to give up on your dreams, your soul purpose, you will achieve it. You must believe in yourself. You must believe that victory will be yours. You must take your life and live it to the fullest. You can feel victorious if you are working towards something because every day you will achieve another goal; every day you are a step closer. Every day you must reflect on the victory of your success for that day. A daily victory will lead to a life of victory.

To achieve that victorious feeling, you must believe you can do this. You must have faith in your ability. You must keep striving forward and know that you are going to win. Think about the Law of Attraction, whatever your thoughts you are attracting, you are the creator of your life. If you think you can win, you will … if you think you can’t win, you won’t! You will put the effort in where it’s needed if you want to feel victorious. Putting the effort in tells the universe you are willing to work towards your goals … the universe will respond with opportunities to help move you forward.

Talk positively about your goals, drive yourself forward and speak only about your victories, no matter how small they are. Don’t talk about situations not working. Don’t focus on the things that could go wrong. Think about, talk about and embrace all the wonderful things that will go right. Focus on the end goal and the winning. Focus on the victory. If you focus on victory you will bring that to you, if you focus on defeat you will bring that to you. So it’s important to check your thoughts and embrace the feeling of winning, embrace the feeling of achieving, embrace the feeling that you are victorious.

 

In this week’s therapeutic writing exercise let’s focus on the victories in life

This week’s exercise is to write daily. At the end of each day write about the achievements you have made, what victories can be celebrated. Small steps count and if you are ticking off boxes you are moving forward.

So every day this week write about your victories. If this helps, you can continue this after the week. It’s something you could get into the habit of doing. Sometimes we feel as if we haven’t got anywhere, we have days where we feel that treadmill is just rolling on and we are just walking through life. Life is happening to us, we’re not making it happen for us … once you start to write down your daily wins you’ll be encouraged to achieve more wins. You’ll feel the surge of energy to get out there and make life happen for you. Go and be victorious!

Remember: Positive messages throughout the day, helps the negative thoughts stay away.

So be inspired daily with this

How To Let Your Uniqueness Shine – A to Z Inspirational Blog; U is for Unique with Quotes on Uniqueness and Therapeutic Writing

A-Z Inspirational Journey 

This week’s inspirational word

U IS FOR UNIQUE

I love this quote from this awesome film because it’s so true. We are all unique in our own special way. Imagine if we all had the same characters, passions, desires, dreams, goals … wouldn’t the world be a boring place? The one thing we should all aim for is love. This includes following our hearts. In some cases, this means we may be judged, however, this says more about the people doing the judging than it does about you. Who are we to judge anyone else? Who are we to say that we are better than anyone else? When we were born into this world, we were given certain talents, that I like to call gifts. We know what these gifts are by our desire to fulfil certain passions. Our aim, while we are here on this physical plane, is to follow these passions and make a difference in this world, through love and understanding.

Anyone who understands the spirituality of a higher power will understand how we are born into this world as souls presented in the human form; our souls have decided we needed to be here at this particular time. It’s only as we grow, spirituality is drawn away from us, as we have to conform to societal rules. Rules that humans have put in place. Rules that have become a norm. Trust me when I say these rules are of human-doing, not God’s. God only comes from a place of love, with that love, he gave us free will. Unfortunately, that free will hasn’t been used to express the love, that was intended, by many. The judgement of others is not coming from a place of love. It’s important that we realise we are all equal, no-one is better than anyone else, we are all unique in our own way. Many people come from a place of fear because they are scared to show their uniqueness.

Fear is the thing that will hold you back from being the unique individual you were put here to be. Once you can let go of this fear, embrace the love you were born with, you will find your uniqueness and you will thrive forward. You will place your faith in a higher power and you will move forward as the wonderful special individual that you are. Once you realise we all come from the same place, we are all here on one mission only; to spread love and joy, you can’t help but understand how your passion (your gift) links into this mission. Once you are following your passion, once you are doing what you love, you can’t help but feel the joy and you can’t help but spread this further afield. Your passion will always inspire and influence someone else. You will be spreading the love without knowing you are doing it.

So, when you use your uniqueness to spread love, not judging others, not allowing the judgement of others to affect you, you let go of fear. You will understand that we are all special. It comes down to choices … choosing to see the special uniqueness of every individual you come into contact with, choosing to shine as the unique person you were put on this earth to be and choosing to embrace the love that comes with this wonderful outlook on life. Embrace your uniqueness, don’t let anyone take that away from you … and don’t you take it away from anyone else.

In this week’s therapeutic writing exercise let’s write about your uniqueness …

You realise you’re unique, right? You understand you have a magic inside of you that needs to shine, yes?

You must feel this … if you don’t feel it, ask yourself why are you the same as everyone else? Those beliefs, by the way, is just your fear talking, your ego stopping you from expressing the unique and wonderful individual that you are.

In this week’s exercise write about yourself from a 3rd person’s point of view. NOTE:  THIS CANNOT BE NEGATIVE!!! No negativity is allowed in these sessions. Write about yourself as your loved ones see you … all positive … write down all the good qualities people see in you.

Now keep this with you and remind yourself daily, with these notes, about the wonderful, unique person that you are. Read this daily until you believe it, you own it, you are proud of your uniqueness. Read this daily until you feel the love.

Believe in yourself … you got this!

Remember: Positive messages throughout the day, helps the negative thoughts stay away.

So be inspired daily with this

How To Start Thriving In Life – A to Z Inspirational Blog; T is for Thrive with Quotes on Thriving and Therapeutic Writing

A-Z Inspirational Journey 

This week’s inspirational word

T IS FOR THRIVE

It’s hard to thrive at something if you don’t enjoy what you’re doing … this works in all areas of your life. You may find that you are thriving in one area but not in another. Sometimes the areas that we are not thriving in as much can affect other areas of our lives. For example, we may have a wonderful relationship but we are not happy in our work. This work situation may affect your relationship; if you feel tired, worn-out, stressed etc. you won’t want to make the effort with your relationships when you are away from work. When you feel unhappy in one area of your life, it has a chain reaction to the other areas of your life. It’s sometimes hard to switch our feelings off when we are unhappy.

So, what can we do to thrive in every situation?

If we can change it … we should! If we can’t change it, then we can change our attitude and feelings towards it. For example, you may love your work but you may have issues with people you work with. You can’t change these people. Just like people can’t change you (or shouldn’t change you). What we can do is put out to the universe that we want to change our attitude, we want to thrive, we want to live a more peaceful life … You’d be amazed when you start thinking about thriving in certain situations you bring more to you to thrive on.

So how we do we go from ‘just living’ to thriving? If you read my blog posts, you’ll know it comes down to gratefulness, being grateful for the good in your life will help develop your gratefulness throughout other areas of your life and the universe responds by giving you more to be grateful for. Once you become more grateful your attitude automatically changes and this will bring you an abundance of things to be grateful for … an abundance of things to thrive from.

Research, by Daniel Brown, a professor, psychology lecturer, at the University of Portsmouth, showed that a person must possess some (but not necessarily all) certain characteristics to be able to thrive in life, you can see the interesting research here.

Sometimes we feel we have nothing to thrive towards. There are problems, issues, life is just going along on its treadmill and we wonder what it is we should be thriving towards. The best way forward with this is to change your attitude towards your life. Look for the love. Take one of the situations that you feel is unthriving, and ask yourself, ‘If I can’t change it, what can I do to feel better about it?’ Once you start to thrive in one area of your life, the others areas will fall into place too. It’s amazing how our feelings towards a certain life situation can take up our whole being. So rather than a negative situation taking up your whole being, work on your attitude towards these feelings and watch how your world changes.

In this week’s therapeutic writing exercise let’s write about thriving in life.

Take one situation in your life that you wish you could thrive in … this could be work, relationships, hobbies … anything where you feel you are lacking. An area of your life you wish you could improve.

Now, free-write how you would feel if you could thrive in this area of your life. Visualise how you would feel and then write these feelings down. How would it feel to get out of bed every morning, thriving in just this one area of your life? Now imagine how this would impact the other areas of your life and write down the positivity this could bring to all areas of your life. Write down the chain reaction you think this could have. Write down how you could thrive in other areas of your life if you made changes to one area.

Now … ask yourself, how can I make these changes? When will I make these changes? Put a plan in place to start thriving … you got this!

 

Remember: Positive messages throughout the day, helps the negative thoughts stay away.

So be inspired daily with this

Love & happiness to you always
