Random Thoughts On The Incredible Power of Thoughts

Aspirational-Coasters

“Aspiration: The progressive realization of a worthy ideal.” ~ quote from Aspirational Coasters

”For the man who has, will be given more… but the man who has nothing will have taken away from  him what little he has.” – Matt. 13:12

Hang on, that’s not fair. I thought God was supposed to be fair and just. Not very loving if you ask me…

Mmm, now that I’ve calmed down a little maybe there’s  more to this than meets the eye.  My Dad used to say “Nothing is as it seems.”

Over the years I’ve read so much around the simple act of thinking, 60,000 thoughts a day I’m told.

One of my gurus, Dr. Deepak Chopra, teaches that a thought is an impulse of energy and information. 60,000 thoughts must generate quite a bit of energy each day! And what of the “information” that’s attached to the energy, what’s that all about? Someone told me I was the same as a tree, just different information.

OK, I’ll cut to the chase.

I’ve nestled into the belief that says there’s a strong link (infallible?) between my thinking and the circumstances of my life. I’m very content with my life so far. And I see every day that whatever I’ve been thinking about actually appears in my life. Ever so quietly. Subtle, easy to miss at first.

My life-manta as I call it, has appeared in physical form. My mantra’s no secret. It’s “I’m Happy, Healthy, Wise, and Wealthy.” I think about that every day with a heart posture of gratitude.

Coming back to my opening Biblical quote. What do “poor” people think about all day? What dominates their thoughts? I wonder, would it be thoughts of abundance and gratitude. And what do the “wealthy” think about all the time?

These days they say “the gap (between rich and poor) is  widening”. Same principle I suggest. What you think about you get more of. Think abundance, you get more of it. Think lack and poverty, you get more of that.

“.. but the man who has nothing will have taken away from him who little he has.” The rich get richer, the poor get poorer because of the way they are habitually thinking. All that energy and information going the wrong way. “Wrong” meaning lack and deprivation.

My life mantra has been a delight. It’s taken patience and tenacity at times but it works. I am happy, healthy, wise and wealthy. Yes, please. Thank you.

15 Powerful Hacks to Overcome Procrastination

10 Powerful Hacks to Overcome Procrastination

15 Powerful Hacks to Overcome Procrastination

Procrastination wastes our precious time and steals our productivity. It’s something all of us are guilty of sometimes. According to psychologists, twenty percent of people can identify themselves as procrastinators. We all have tendencies to procrastinate to some degree, some are just worse than others. For instance, chronic procrastinators can’t seem to control it that they actively look for distractions and sabotage themselves.

Other procrastinators such as the thrill-seekers put off work because they seek the adrenaline rush of beating the deadline. The Avoiders procrastinate because of fear of failure and the decisional procrastinators can’t seem to make a final decision or do not make any decisions at all to absolve themselves of the responsibilities of the consequences.

Procrastinators do not realize the cost of this to their health, work, and social lives. If you are suffering from procrastination, here are some powerful hacks to overcome it.

1. Determine the source or the reason why you are procrastinating

The key to finding a solution to a problem is to identify the root cause of the problem so they can be addressed properly. Usually, there is something more than what you see on the surface. The underlying reason why people procrastinate is deeper and more complicated than just being plain lazy or irresponsible.

2. Lacking in abilities or skills deficit

Some people procrastinate simply because they do not know how to perform what is asked of them or lack the necessary skills to complete tasks. Others postpone doing tasks because they can’t admit to themselves they need help and having troubles asking for it for the fear of judgment. One example is in writing an academic paper. Most students procrastinate because they couldn’t put their thoughts into a paper. They tend to put it off instead of looking for ways they can accomplish their requirements. If you are one of them, end your suffering and seek help online.

3. Lack of interest and motivation

It is natural for people to postpone doing any task if it does not appeal to their interest. The best solution for this is to just remember why the task needs to be done anyway and the possible effects if you fail to do it. Other times the task still interests you but you just lack the motivation to even begin. It may be triggered by other factors in life that you have to address first or emotions you have to deal with.

4. Feeling overwhelmed

When you feel too overwhelmed by your current situation in life, it is quite normal to procrastinate. Switching from one task to another is difficult.

5. Fear of failure and fear of success

Fear of failure can paralyze people. They fear that they might do something poorly or not being able to do it at all that they cannot even begin. On the other hand, those who fear success procrastinate because they think more will be expected out of them if they succeeded to perform well.

6. Act of Rebellion

Rebels deliberately procrastinate without really understanding why they do it sometimes. It’s an unconscious reaction against people of power. A teenager at home may delay doing his/her chores just because his/her parents asked him/her to do them immediately.

These are just some examples of reasons why people procrastinate.

7. Refine your to-do list and rank your priorities accordingly.

At times, we tend to feel pressured just by merely looking at our to-do list, especially when we don’t feel enthusiastic about certain tasks. The more things listed down, the more people tend to procrastinate. One solution that could work is to be realistic about the things that you can and can’t do and keep your list short. Rank your tasks according to the level of priority so you’d know which one requires immediate action.

8. Breakdown big tasks into chunks

Refer to your list and breakdown big tasks into smaller tasks so you can accomplish them without overwhelming yourself too much that you put off other equally important tasks off.

9. Try to finish all the easy tasks first

When we think of a task as easy, we tend to postpone doing it that we sometimes end up not being able to do it at all. If you tell yourself “It’s fine. It’s easy, I’ll do it later” a lot of times, you are already procrastinating.

When you finish the easy tasks first, you can cross them out of your list and prepare for bigger ones. It can save you time, effort and in some cases, money.

10. Use productivity apps

It is amazing how we can utilize technology to our advantage. If you need a little nudge to keep yourself going, download apps that can help make everything a little easier. There are apps that can remind you of your task and there are some that can help keep your focus and away from distractions.

11. Take meaningful rests

Meaningful rest means not staying in work mode. Some people take breaks only to do other smaller tasks. Sometimes people procrastinate because they do not get enough rest. Their mind gets too tired that it wanders.

12. Reward yourself for your accomplishments

Sometimes all you need is a positive reinforcement. Reward yourself for every accomplishment and you will feel good and enthusiastic to accomplish more tasks.

13. Take proper care of yourself

When you neglect to take care of yourself, you will put off work because you either feel too tired or sick. You are tired because you didn’t get enough sleep or you feel sluggish because of the kind of food you eat, and then you get sick. Eat well, get enough sleep, exercise and you will feel better and productive.

14. Meditate

Meditation can help you deal with stress by clearing your mind so you can regain your focus. Even great and successful people procrastinate, and use meditation to get them back to the game.

15. Mind over matter

Whatever your reason may be for putting off work or delaying tasks, you have to have a mantra that can immediately snap you out of your procrastination. Remind yourself that if you fail to do what you have to do, you will not be able to achieve your goals.

You are not born with chronic procrastination, it is something you have created you. The good news is that you can change your behavior. You can avoid unnecessary distraction and focus on what really matters.

The Healing Power of Positive Words

Healing Power of Positive Words Think Positive

The Healing Power of Positive Words

Human’s eyes represent his mind, the tongue signifies his heart, and his arms legs represent human will. The tongue is a small body organ, yet death and life reside in the power of the tongue. Words can have a positive or negative impact on our lives. A person’s speech is so powerful, that you can easily determine their mental wellbeing from the words they utter. Words have power, and proper use of the power requires wisdom. This blog explores the power of speech and gives advice for exercising wisdom in whatever you say.

1. Your Body Is the Temple of God

As an individual recognize God that resides in the tip of your tongue and in each heart of a human being. Harmful words ruin the temple of God that is located in your heart. As God’s worker on earth, you need to ensure that positive speech becomes an integral part of your life. Develop an internal alchemy that turns destructive compassion into a passion, and disliking into sympathy.

2. Positive Words Relieve Mental Burdens

Gentle words often turn even the hardest of souls. God exists in each and every human being. When we use positive feeling words and act towards another people, we shift the karmic balance by paying the previous debt. When we speak positively to another person, we relieve them of their mental burden and bring him on the way to self-analysis and light. Nothing is more discouraging than hurtful gossip, criticism, and negative speech. If you keep on slandering and gossiping about others, you are denying yourself the opportunity to be truly happy in your life.

3. Positive Words Have a Healing Effect

Words have an incredible healing power in people’s lives. Words of love, comfort and encouragement have a positive impact on people’s lives. This is evidenced by health in the body. Positive speech is a weapon against disease and bad luck. Take control of your tongue, to ensure it speaks no evil against the absent or departed. Make sure your words do not injure a person’s reputation. Practice self-control, good company and good words as they bring light to the heart. Familiarize yourself with these rules checklist on how to be happy.

4. Positive Words Uplift People’s Lives

If you are blessed in life, nature expects you to recompense the blessings you have received by uplifting others with your words. In doing so, more blessings, wealth, and health will come your way. If you fail to do so, then you are only denying yourself the joy and happiness you would have gained from uplifting other people’s lives. On the other hand, if you speak negatively about other people, you absorb their bad karma and dissipate the blessings you had gained, that you would have otherwise received.

The following are interesting beliefs regarding the impact of negative, hurtful words.

  • If you have an island under the ring finger or a line of line – it’s not a good sign.
  • A star at the base of your middle finger is not favorable. That is the reply for the sin of slander would be great.
  • A cross under the ring and/or middle fingers brings negativity in the life of those offending others.
  • If a cross appears on your mount of Venus, abstain from stay away from slander, gossip, and negativity, since they will directly impact your relations.

5. Positive Words Strengthen Our Relationships

Speech is the Light of Infinity which should be constantly increasing. We should approach our listeners humbly, and show them our intellectual gift by the words we speak. We should center our conversations around truths. We should also show modesty and respect in our speech. If you look around you, a lot of people are bringing down their love relationships, friendships and careers by speaking lies, being arrogant and showing disrespect in the way they speak with their partners.

6. Positive Words Create and Support Light

The Word is God and God is the Word. When God created us, he intended for us to be the Spirit of Light that guides all those who have strayed from the path of light. The tongue, should, therefore, not be used to destroy others. When you gossip, you attract negative forces that invade your body, mind, and heart. Such forces suck out the light out of you, leaving you weak and unable to exercise control over your heart and body. The only way to avoid this situation is by dedicating the words that come from your mouth to create light and support others who might be too weak having been possessed by dark forces.

7. Positive Words Improve the World

The world we live in is full of karma. We always hear that karma will get back at us in one way or the other. Your achievements, challenges and everything you go, are not by accident. Rather, they are the result of karma. Instead of attracting negative karma, you can attract positive karma. By using deliberate words and actions that are intentionally constructive, we set positive forces in motion, that will act on the good for all mankind. Positive words will improve your life and further karma incarnations, and by extension, improve the world through enlightenment.

In conclusion, positive thinking is something that you need to practice over a great deal of time to get it in your system. An empty stomach brings out the negative energy from your body. To help yourself, you need to eat healthy, at regular times and also stay out in the sun as bonding with nature cancels out the negative forces. Above all, learn to love yourself by taking good care of your body, refraining from listening to and participating in negative talk. This way, you will always keep your mind, heart, and body healthy. Here is an inspirational speech to get you going in your endeavors.
