Plug into your Decision-Making Power

Blog-header-construct.jpg

We make decisions every moment, day after day. Mostly these decisions are small and inconsequential, but sometimes they are life-changing events.

Ultimately, the outcome of your days, your years, and your entire life are mostly defined by the sum of your decisions, and the following actions you take every step of the way.

 

There is a lot of power in making a decision, any decision; even those you take when you’re not completely sure that it’s the right one. Once you realize the overwhelming impact that making decisions can have, you will definitely start to live the best part of your life.

 

But that doesn’t make it any easier, right?

There’s a fun saying that goes: “the road of life is paved with flat squirrels who couldn’t make a decision.”

We tend to get paralyzed at some point, like the squirrel on the road in front of a pair of headlights; and knowing upfront the impact our decisions can have doesn’t make the fear go away. What if we make the wrong one? How would that affect our lives?

You might think then “so, I’d better not take any decision at all”… but that is also a decision –and a very bad one; one that also holds the power to create quite a mess.

 

The inability to make a decision can leave you frozen in place when changes are necessary. It can also devastate your confidence, your happiness, and your overall emotional well-being.

Any decision is better than no decision at all.

Push past the fear and doubts, and start taking control over your life’s outcomes; make decisions quickly, take action steps immediately, and visualize the end result you’re looking for.

 

Commit to a decision, follow through, and you can set yourself up for success every time.

Defining your Life Purpose

2Blog-header-construct.jpg

We’re all born with a distinctive Purpose; and both, the identification and pursuit of that Purpose are the best things you can do in order to live a fulfilling, happy life.

Today, we’re going to talk about how to identify your Purpose and then to create a Purpose Statement, which will become a road map to guide you through life.

 

What do you love to do?

First of all, you need to mentally explore the things you already love to do and always come easily to you…
Think about those things… What do you love to do most? What are those things that, when you’re doing them, time seems to stop?
It might be something you work hard to develop into a talent, but that it felt natural to you, like going down a water slide.

Make a list of all that comes to your mind and see what they all have in common.

 

1. What qualities do you love expressing?

Now, ask yourself, what are two values that you most enjoy expressing in the world? My two values are Courage and Integrity; what are yours? Remember to write them down.

 

2. In what way do you express them?

Once you have those two identified, what are two ways in which you enjoy expressing them? My ways are Inspiring and empowering others.

Write down yours now.

 

3. What does a “perfect world” look like to you?

Finally, take a moment now to describe what a “perfect world” would look like to you. How is every one relating to each other? What are they doing on a daily basis?
For me, in a perfect world, people will be living the higher version of themselves; everyone is doing what they love most and sharing it with others.

Write down your own description now, because the next step is to combine all the previous steps to create your Life Purpose Statement.

 

Create your Life Purpose Statement

Ok, now take a moment to combine the 3 points into one single statement that will start to outline your Purpose.
I wrote down my Purpose here. Use it as a guideline to create yours:

My Life Purpose is to inspire and empower (2) people to live the higher version of themselves (3), in a context of courage and integrity (1).

Every time I’m living it, I feel like I’m “in the zone”; I love every minute of it. I could spend 8 hours straight and it feels like playing! Don’t get me wrong, work and effort are in did a requirement, but suffering is not. If you are stressed and suffering, you’re probably living your life off-course; off-purpose, we could say.

Create your Life Purpose Statement and start guiding your life to a more satisfying experience.

See you next week.
Stay strong!

Behind every problem lies the Gift of Growth

Problems are gifts; it just happens we’re not always able to see beyond its wrapping.

Problems are an inevitable part of life. They always come and go, only sometimes, they tend to come back the same, time after time.

Those are the problems that don’t seem to go away, they stick around longer than usual, and our customary problem-solving methods don’t seem to apply to them; they keep coming back in various different ways, but all the same in essence. And the longer you take in addressing them, the more intensity they display.

This is the Universe (you may call it God, Karma, you name it) have to teach us life lessons in order for us to grow and expand.

 

We all tend to look at problems as something from the outside world, over which we have little or no control; when in reality, all it would take to resolve would be a little –or sometimes, big- shift in our thinking and behavior.

Inside each of them, there is a lesson we haven’t learned yet, and they will keep appearing until we do.

 

 

The approach to these type of recurring problems is never to keep blaming external circumstances; instead, you should look at yourself in the mirror and ask why you keep making poor decisions and still keep expecting different results.

You can look at your problems as immutable outside circumstances, or as obstacles that are there for you to overcome and learn from.

 

If you choose to look at them as learning opportunities, this is how you can tackle them:

 

1. Look at the bigger picture.

Ask yourself why you do the things you do. Do you see any patterns there? If you can identify and then interrupt the patterns that don’t serve you, you will get better results.

 

2. You gotta change something.

You know how the saying goes; if you keep doing the same thing, you’ll keep getting the same results. You got to make a change. Decide what two-degree shift you are willing to commit to in order to turn your sailboat and change your destination –and your outcome, once and for all.

 

How you look at your problems will influence how you deal with them directly.
If you are able to see the gift of growth inside each obstacle and search for the solution within yourself, you can use them to propel your life forward.

 

 

Always remember, life is happening for you, not to you.

Stay strong!

When Your Obstacles Become Opportunities

Blog-header-08302019.jpg
The obstacles you find in your way are there to test you, to let you find out how bad you want it and how far are you prepared to go to get it.

It’s very usual to find obstacles in our way to achieve something; and when it happens, sometimes we lose our way. Our mind starts fearing the challenge we’ll have to face and start to self-doubt, and sometimes even quit. Now, why is it that we are caught by these obstacles with our guards so down? And why do we make such a big deal out of them?

Every path we take will have its obstacles; no matter how well we perform, we’ll still end up facing them. Why? Because by finding the courage to confront them, we get to become the kind of person who can actually overcome them.

These obstacles, or problems, are usually opportunities in disguise; scattered along the way to help us rather than to deter us. They can boost us further by triggering some required emotion or by challenging us in order to improve our current capabilities.

In other ways, what stands in your way is the way towards achievement… the obstacle is the way.

That obstacle facing you has a purpose, and that is to force you –like the Marines say- to improvise, adapt, and overcome.
To put it simply, it offers us a whole new perspective in which we see goals as a means to achieve growth, and not as an end in itself.

 

In our following articles, we’re going to explore a few ways in which we can turn our everyday obstacles into our greatest opportunities.

In the meantime, remember that each obstacle we face is a chance to take ourselves to another level.

Create a Roadmap for Your Happiness

Blog-header-08222019.jpg
“Whenever you are happy with something in your life, it is because right now, the conditions of your life match your blueprint –your belief about how life should be in that particular area.”
— Tony Robbins

The world we live in today had created such a culture that we’re taught that we’re not good enough unless we do something really special and unique with our lives.

The thing is, the definition of “special” is totally distorted. We worship celebrities just for impersonating really important people such as doctors, school teachers, stay-at-home parents, law enforcement officers, firefighters, our military, etc.; but we actually disregard or just ignore these everyday heroes in real life.

 

In today culture, we often found ourselves pushed to do what we believe is expected from us –go to school, get a job, find the right person, get married and have children; instead of following the inner pull of our passions. All those are good things, but not mandatory or exclusive by themselves.
When we follow the push of society instead of the pull of our heart, we cannot create meaningful happiness.

 

Consider for a moment the beliefs you have about what your life should be about. Those limiting beliefs are actually holding you back from reaching your full potential.

Could you let go of the idea of happiness you had in your mind, and instead, appreciate and be grateful for what you already have?

Goals and dreams are important for each of us, but it’s dangerous to tie our happiness to the ‘shoulds’ and ‘musts’ we impose onto ourselves. We can’t fit our enjoyment into a rigid mold.

We are the designers of our lives. We create our own happiness.

 

The equation of happiness

Think about it, whenever you’re happy with something, it is because, at that time, the conditions of your life are equal to the conditions you’ve set for happiness; that is, your beliefs about how life MUST BE in that particular area.
Conversely, when our lives don’t match our expectations, then pain comes, and we interpret that pain as failure; and that, we’re trying to avoid at all costs because we’re afraid of suffering.

The thing is, pain can be a powerful force for good in our lives. We can take it and use it as an opportunity to grow, and come out stronger.

 

Let go of the past and what you believe it should be happening, and move on. Regain control of your own happiness.

Knowing that you can create your happiness by letting go of your current mental structure is the ultimate freedom and the only path to true joy.

When we let go and follow our pull of passion, we give room to happiness; we realize that life is not happening to us, it is happening FOR US. When we reach this realization, we can achieve the mindset shift that will allow us to create true happiness.

 

 

Remember, no matter what happens in life, you’re always more than that moment and more than the story you’ve created for yourself.

So, ready to throw out your expectations and create your happiness?

Stay strong!
