… and I don’t mean it in the fitness way today 😀
Surround yourself with people who are only lifting you higher. It is the environment that shapes you, also known as peer pressure or even tradition. So watch out with who you hang out with.
We can’t chose our family, but we can chose our friends. It is a tough topic to write about and I guess I will just scratch the surface again. My thoughts are a bit all over the place at the moment, but I hope you get the point.
I also think it is more about being aware of how much you are vulnerable to what other people say and think about you. You have your goals. Look at them daily and make a short list of things you need to get done today, little action steps that move you forward, closer to your goal. In the evening, review your day. Can you see how people and people’s talk can distract and influence you? Unfortunately most of it goes in the opposite direction.
Then it is time to ask yourself, how much do you want that goal. What would you do to reach that goal? Would you let go of some so called “friends”? Can you give up some time in front of the TV? You will tell me, “but I have to relax”. Sure, but wouldn’t it be better to watch what you want and not what the media tells you to watch? Watch some motivational stuff, some movies you haven’t seen for a while?
Time is precious and you can’t get it back. So please don’t waste it. Relax in the right way, work in the right way … don’t lose your dreams just because you are pleasing others.
I have to make some tough decisions in the next days and weeks, so I am putting my goals down in the written form and in form of pictures. I will write about it in my blog, so I am staying more accountable. There will be bad and good days … but I want it badly.
Some of you know that I am not a big people’s person and my current job is not helping in having the right people around me. Therefore, I will focus on having the right people around me before and after work. If there is a problem, there is a solution … there is always a way around it. Go and get your goal, you deserve it.
Two magic words. How did we learn to walk? We saw people walking, actually everyone we saw was walking. We knew it was doable and achievable. Tips and tricks from our parents were not helpful, they don’t remember how it is to not be able to walk, so what? Persistence and consistency, falling back on the bump, grabbing anything that kept us upright, again, again and again. So we know what we can achieve through persistence and consistency, however when we grow up, we listen more and more to our parents, teachers and other people around us. We hear things like “You can’t do that”, “No one has done it in our family, why do you think you can do that?” or “What’s the point?”. Most of the time we give up or don’t even try to start to work on our idea.
You have to decide who you are listening to. Do you want to be like your parents and like your friends? Then listen to them. Or do you want to live like Richard Branson, Dr John F Demartini, Donald Trump and Will Smith? Then I would suggest you to listen to them. Read about them and attend their seminars. These people are sharing their experience for a reason, to show that everything is possible in life.
I just attended a seminar with Dr John F Demartini yesterday. Just listen to his story, how he achieved to live the lifestyle he has now …. your eyes will be watering and you will look at your life differently. I am quoting John here:
And if somebody says you can’t do it, you fucking can!
F.U.C.K. stands for Future Understanding of Conscious Knowledge! 😉
Everyone can achieve his or her dreams, you just need to work on it, step by step. Work on it persistently and consistently. The will to change your life will make you get up on the morning. Turn it into a habit and soon you will see the change happening.
P.S. I am looking for ambitious people working with me in my primary business. If that is you … please contact me!
What is it that gives you goosebumps? What is it that makes you to shut up and listen, listen carefully and you don’t want to miss a second? Who is it who makes you believing, yes, I want to be like him/her? Who is who makes you cry, because of joy and love? Who or what inspires you?
It is different for everyone. Also, don’t mix it up with motivation.
To be motivated you need a reason to act or behave in a specific way.
To be inspired you are mentally stimulated to do or feel something.
Since more than 20 years I am a huge fan of the rock band Queen. The death of Freddie is now 20 years ago as well, but gosh, the live videos of their concerts in the 70’s and 80’s? That stuff touches me. These four guys, Freddie, Brian, Roger and John, they are so passionate about what they are doing, that fascinates me. And seeing Freddie leaving the stage the last time at the 86 concert in Wembley, just don’t talk to me. That gets me.
Was it easy for them to become rock stars? No way! They struggled like everyone else who became successful. I’ve read almost all books that are out there about Queen. When you read the story about their early years … I would know plenty of people who would have given up in the first week.
Do I want to be a rock star? Hell yes! I want to become a rock star in the area I am passionate about. If I can show people that there is a better way, I would feel like a rock star!
My favourite lyrics from Queen:
So you feel that you ain’t nobody
Always needed to be somebody
Put your feet on the ground
Put your hand on your heart
Lift your head to the stars
And the world’s for your taking!
Where are you a rock star?
Dr John Demartini made a great statements in one of his books called “Breakthrough Experience”.
Our own soul is the ultimate guardian spirit, and a genius is one who listens to their soul and obeys
Unfortunately most people are listening to the outer voice. We listen more to other people’s opinion, systems and expectations and we are trying hard to fit in. This results in lack of motivation, procrastination, fights and dislikes.
What is it, that keeps us so small and obeying to others instead to ourselves? Are we scared to speak up? Is the social pressure that big? What do we have to lose?
When can we all start to acknowledge the genius in us? Now? But … there is no but. You have been put here on Earth for a reason. You have been given a talent, so master it. The only limit you have is time, the time being here on Earth. Don’t waste your time following a system set up by others. Don’t try to be like them … even you might reach a similar level, you won’t be happy, because that is not you, the real you.
Start to love yourself, acknowledge your soul’s message and your life will be fulfilled.
I like reading Demartini’s book and I already attended a couple of his events here in Brisbane. In the video below we even got the opportunity to get John to send our team a message.
My homework is now to release my genius. I have it like everyone else has it. However, something is suppressing it. What are your dislikes and likes? Where do you think are your skills? I don’t mean the skills on your Resume, I mean the skills given to you when you were placed here in Earth. What’s your purpose?
Entrepreneur Trish Jenkins had built a multi-million dollar portfolio only to lose it all to fraud, even her family home. What followed was a drawn out voluntary liquidation followed by an 8 month term for being in breach of the Corporations Act. Isolated from her family and surrounded by criminals, Trish could have succumbed to despair. But treasure is found in dark places. Refusing to remain a victim, Trish determined to make a difference in the world. Trish is an author and a captivating speaker who imparts these treasures as Powerful Perspectives for business and life.
That’s how Trish is introduced today to spread her message. Why am I sharing this with you? I met Trish last year on a big marketing event. People could come on stage and big marketing gurus would help with some marketing tricks. But then Trish came on stage and her story even made the guru stumble over words … because her story was a big one and worth sharing.
And the story she had to share was how a very successful woman could fall and ignore signs that she even went to jail. What I see now in Trish is a woman who dusts herself up and comes back up. Back up on stage to share to people that they learn from her mistake. Is that easy for her? Of course not, she is going through all possible up and downs .. but she has a strong family. And with her stepping up at this marketing event, the support grew even more. People here from Brisbane and surroundings are giving her opportunities to spread the word, because we all see and understand that it could have happened to everyone of us.
You will hear about Trish here on my blog more.
