Research suggests that we have up to 70,000 thoughts per day. And while many of these thoughts will just pop into our minds, we get to choose which ones to focus on and these will determine how we experience life.
In honor of Louise Hay (October 8, 1926 - August 30, 2017)
Life lives in your perception - a tiny shift. from discontent to gratitude, from appreciating what you have rather than what you don't, from viewing change as an adventure rather than as something to fear, changes your entire experience of the event. Spend time getting to know yourself, the way you think - your prejudices, your beliefs, your internal messages that have been on replay maybe for decades - all of these determine how you look and process things. Change these and change your world.
In honor of Wayne Dyer (May 10, 1940 - August 30, 2015)
You may never see the effects of your actions but that doesn't mean that they have no effect. From picking up a piece of trash, smiling at someone, letting a car merge in easily...it all matters, it all counts.
Expectations can leave you feeling disappointed, slighted or angry while appreciation brings a feeling of abundance and gratitude.
Not only is this a great way to become a better person but what a wonderful way to honor those we love.
Even though you may understand, on an intellectual level, that failure is a natural part of learning, it can still be a blow to your ego. The key is to offset the "failures" with rewards for accomplishments in other areas. In this way you are strengthening your self esteem so that it is able to bounce back while you are still in learning mode.
