Put the Focus on You

In a fast paced technological world filled with faces and place we’re supposed to watch on a daily basis, it’s time to put the focus back on ourselves.

For a little while today I invite you to look at the possibilities and magic within you. Step away from all the noise and clutter of the outside world and remind yourself exactly how important you are in this universe.

There’s only one of you. Are you aware no one else comes even close? You’re not here by accident. You’re a unique individual, beautiful and perfect. You matter. What you do here is of exponential importance.

Never let a day go by when you don’t realize your self worth. Instead of looking at everybody else and trying to compare or compete, see the truth. You deserve the time and focus. You’re capable, talented and brimming with ideas. Share your magnificence with the world and delight in knowing every path you cross with someone else is unquestionably linked to your own journey.

Never spend a moment wishing you are someone else. This world simply can’t live without your individual presence. Enjoy the view!

Survive or Thrive

There are many challenges in daily living. Often these situations and tasks make us feel like we’re on nonstop survival mode. It’s important to survive but imperative you get to a place of thriving in your life.

Complaints, problems and tasks leave us feeling as though we have little time to get to a place for ourselves. Even if your time is limited, consider putting the focus and effort back on you.

When you put energy into your life, you’ll begin to see a thrive mindset develop. When you thrive, you’re able to grow and expand as an individual. You’ll find space in your mind and your heart for new paths in life.

Make time for you. When daily challenges become too much, put them on hold. Find a quiet space and a bit of time where you can repair and rebuild yourself into a position of thriving not simply surviving.

How are You Fitting Into Your Life Today?

Take a moment to examine your life. Simply look at your day’s events and reflect. Are you fitting into a life you want?

It’s easy to get in a routine and simply fit your way into a life but at some point it feels uncomfortable. You’ve got to build a life to your size and fit in where you desire to be.

Get back in touch with your dreams and aspirations, your personal kindness and generosity, your gratitude and blessings, strengths and weaknesses.

We live in an abundant world and you deserve abundant thoughts that shape and direct your life. If you’re just getting by and fitting into a life that’s not quite up to your dream life, remember you’re good enough right now at any point to rethink and restart.

It’s okay to be anywhere in life but take time to reflect. Don’t just make a place for yourself, find a place. Take care to gently examine your direction and place abundant thoughts within your mind as seeds of hope building and reflecting back to you the life you desire.

You’re worthy of productive and abundant thoughts. Don’t simply take up space in life. Instead with care, work with yourself and in yourself to find your place in life.

Rediscover Your Blessings

It’s very easy to get caught up in the difficulties of life. Take time instead to rediscover and cultivate your blessings. Even if you have few, you have many.

Do you have running water? A safe place to rest your head? A few moments of quiet to yourself? A friend? Food to eat? Can you walk? See? Simple as they may seem, someone else doesn’t have these things or abilities and someone else may have lost their life so you have freedom and privileges.

In times of worry and anxiety, rediscover your blessings. When you still your mind and keep it on things you truly can be grateful for new things can break free and enter your world. If you try to build on a crumbling foundation of your struggles, it can be shaky. Instead build on a solid foundation filled with your blessings.

We all have so much to be grateful for and if this post allows for a few minutes of gratitude, you’ll have changed the day and a little bit of the world by changing your thinking. If you practice gratitude already, you know the benefits reach far greater than yourself.

Examine the Reflection

Look in the mirror and you’ll find your biggest competitor. Examine the reflection and aim to fix the inside not the outside.

The only thing permanent is you. Inside of you, that’s where the magic truly happens. Outside of your reflection is simply a big comparison screen with everyone else.

There is peace, hope and possibilities inside yourself. There are answers and opportunities waiting in this world for you.

Never give up. There is real promise in dreaming about those things truly worth having.

Core values are essentially inside of you. They’re at your core. Look within and fix that beautiful reflection so it matches the outside and is visible for all to see. When you put the abundance, ability and hope within you on display for this world, you will attract that which you seek.

Make Your Attitude Filled with Gratitude

On a day where life can go either way, why not fill it with gratitude. We forget to be thankful in times of prosperity. Make gratitude a habit and watch things improve in your mindset.

Be grateful for every little thing you have and soon you’ll be humbled as to how much you truly have in your life and how much you’ve been blessed.

Stray from a Mass Manufactured Life

In order to achieve real lasting success you have a definitive choice in life. You can allow your life to be directed by popular role models but you may find your life is robbed. If you copy someone else’s life you are eventually living their life not yours in some manner. While role models are good, sometimes they’re only good at modeling a life- their own.

Instead, you must opt to find your own path. Seek it out and create a life of your own design. Think your way to a new life. Only you can do that and what excitement, wonder, greatness and passion it can bring to you and the whole world when you make this choice.

Real lasting success begins by building a life and straying from a mass manufactured life filled with following people, the latest trends and fads.

Let not your own life be robbed by living a carbon copy lifestyle. Be bold and brave and design a real life free from emulation that defines and changes the world. Take back your power from mass ideas and let your individualism shine and inspire others.

Kindness is More Than a Word

Kindness isn’t just a word. It’s an action. It takes a mere moment to change a life with kindness. I’ve been the recipient of kindness and it truly stays with me. I remember the people who were kind for no reason. You can reshape someone’s mindset simply by lending a helping hand.

I’ve found that being kind makes me feel better. It’s almost a healing effect. I attempt to choose kindness because I have no idea what any person I cross paths with might be suffering. It’s not like we all wear a sign that lists our hurts. Besides kindness is absolutely free. In a world where everything inflates in prices, kindness is free but priceless.

I don’t throw the word kindness around lightly because I have found it’s an action I choose to take. Without an act, kindness is simply a word. Enjoy this beautiful day!

Grounding Yourself with Gratitude

Mindfulness is an effective way to ground yourself in the moment. You can practice by using the five senses in your surroundings to ground yourself warding off anxiety or worry. How about using gratitude to ground yourself?

Instead of identifying things you can hear, smell, touch, taste or see, name five things you’re grateful to have in your life. Practicing gratitude sincerely with an open heart can reduce worry in your life.

The next time you need to take a deep breath, try naming a few things you’re grateful to have. It might pave the way for a new way of looking at life.
