Out-And-Out!

 

Hi there!

 

A few years ago I decided to start playing golf.
I went to my nearby club and hired an instructor so
I could learn the game properly.
I was very enthusiastic;   and playing every second
day I improved very quickly.

Suddenly one day,  “what’s wrong with you today?”
he asked me while playing.
“I don’t know, but I don’t feel so excited any more”
I replied, feeling surprised myself.

He suggested different things to bring back my focus
to the game, but I had already
lost my enthusiasm
and concentration.
Every time I was going to the club I was feeling under
pressure and not enjoying
golf any more. 

 I had started feeling really stuck and not able to
throw myself into
the game.
Consequently instead of succeeding in being a competent
golfer, which was my
original thought when I started,
I had failed — which I now regret..!

Our brains are prone to distraction naturally.
In today’s chaotic and unsettled life our minds are
gliding along without any
difficulty.

In order not to regret over not having done what
we have always wanted in
our life, we must have
thought through
our targets, calculated them
and be
precise.

 Try to stay focused on your goals and do not allow
confusion, interruptions or
any interferences to
lead you astray.

Deep-Rooted

 

Usually our attention is hopping between our
past and the future.
The only way to succeed is to focus our mind in the present.

 Practice the following three principles:

 

1)    Never Look Back:

 

We learn from our experiences and mistakes in the past,
but we do not
live in the past.

 

2)    Never Live In The Future:

 

We look forward to our plans and goals, but we do not
contemplate
tomorrow in order to escape today.

 

3)    Stay In The Present:

 

Concentrate to living now in order to have a better future.
Certainly living only in the present is extremely difficult,
and it needs
complete self-control;   but it definitely is
the only way to have a successful life.

Ever-Present

 

Imagine your life for the next 5 years.
Picture where you want to be, what you need to do,
the people you want
to associate with.
This will help you focus today so it can materialize tomorrow.

Be enthusiastic and excited about your plans and targets.
Be fascinated by them as well as the whole process
to achieve them.

Adopt the following technique to train your mind:

  Commit your attention to a single assignment for
15 minutes, and get rid
of all distractions.
Do become completely engaged with your task.

As soon as you notice your mind starts wandering,
press it immediately to return
to your assignment.
Keep doing this again and again until you finally succeed.

It is only a matter of discipline,and your mind will get used to it.

Try to keep your body still and stay on your chosen path.

Die-Hard

 

Naturally we all want to grow and achieve our dreams.
This is an adventure which should be an enjoyable and pleasant
experience;   not an ordeal and misery.

You can alter your life by changing your attitude and focus.

The starting point is to believe you can change;
then reshape the way
you are looking at various situations.

Be loving, forgiving, grateful and spiritual.

Kakahiaka!

 

Hi there!

 

It was a sunny morning so I decided to go for a walk.
I chose to go to my nearest
garden centre because
not only it is complete
with various plants but also
it has a fantastic
garden, where I enjoy walking for
as long
as I want.

While walking through the various plant stands I started
noticing the colourful reflections of
the sun light through
the trees and the many
flowers;
“what an amazing view”, I thought.
 

I kept on walking when my attention went to a small
flowering plant growing through
the cracks of a wall.
I bent down to touch
and smell;
“very sweet smell – it gives me
such a relaxing feeling!”, I thought.

Then I noticed how many insects were flying from flower to
flower buzzing and sucking
the sweet juices out of these
wonderful buds.

I kept on walking and suddenly I started realising that
I really was a part of all these
beautiful things happening
around me
at that moment.

It was then when I decided to just live in the moment.
I was only there — and
nothing else existed before or after.

I was totally absorbed…. !!

The morning is the infrastructure our whole day is built upon.
So it is absolutely
vital to adopt powerful habits to give not only our
day but also our life purpose.

Only by doing this we will feel happy, contented, peaceful, strong,
energetic
and really healthy.

 Adjust your mindset to the right direction and have an attitude
of acceptance
and anticipation.  Be prepared for good things to come.

M o t i v o s

 

Try to incorporate the following rituals to your morning routines:

 

1)     Be Grateful

 

Every morning you wake up breathe, pray, feel fortunate
and count your blessings.
Feel grateful for all the things you have, including your health.
Feel grateful you are alive.
This will help you to appreciate life.

 

2)     Daily Purpose

 

Every morning have a complete plan of actions, which
will make you feel happy.
Be creative and do only what is right for you.

 

3)     Have Routines

 

Prioritize your obligations so you will always be relaxed
and in control.
Try to arrange your plans in a list from the night
before to be productive.

 

4)     Live Now

 

Every day is a new beginning.
Live today — and not yesterday or tomorrow, which are illusions.
There is only now.
Life is happening only now.

 

5)     Be Positive

 

Read, think and act in a positive way during the day,
so by the time you go
to bed at night you feel happy.
Change your attitude and expectations.
Being positive is a choice.

 

6)     Breakfast

 

Always eat a wholesome breakfast and include enough liquids
to keep your body
in good health.

Make the choice to be happy.
You are the only one responsible for yourself.
It is within you.

Decide to be energetic, confident, strong and productive.
Accept yourself and other people, be creative and do
not take life
too seriously.

 

 

Decisions!

 

Hi there!

 

This cool night of December she was invited to a
very interesting party.
Wearing her most exciting clothes she took the taxi that
would bring her to this
incredible estate.

Upon arriving and entering the well-decorated impressive
room she was welcomed by a
beautiful crowd, who made
her feel totally happy.
 

It was a fantastic atmosphere; people were drinking and
chatting, others
were dancing and one group were
playing
a game with partners.
They seemed to take great pleasure in doing all these.

Everything was exhilarating!
“I do want to let myself enjoy all this unbelievable celebration;
what an
unforgettable experience” she thought.
But being such a reserved person by nature, she kept on
holding back.
 

Later on that night when she returned home, and while
relaxing on her sofa,
she thought … “although I had a
wonderful
time, still, I feel I was very tight.
This New Year’s resolution for me will be To
Enjoy My Life Much More……”.

Strong Will

 

Another year ending — another year starting;
but it is always the same thing.

You make new resolutions and try to put them in to
action for the next few weeks.
Then suddenly one day you have had enough and you
start ignoring them — and this is
very disappointing.

New Year is a great start for what you always wanted to do.
It is the perfect
time to turn a new page and live a better life.
It is an excellent opportunity
to establish new routines
and achieve
brand new goals — to make a fresh start.

State-Of-The-Art

 

The following tips can help you keep up with your new resolutions.

1)    Be Sensible:

Only make the resolutions that will make you happy at this
point in your life;
and the ones that need the minimum
effort to be accomplished, so you can keep on doing them.

2)    Visualise:

Picture yourself as you would like to be and try to behave
in this new way.

3)    Keep records:

Make a plan every morning for the whole day so you know
exactly what
you are doing at all times.

4)    Concentrate:

Turn any failures into successes by always being persistent.

5)    Have fun:

Follow your resolutions by making  them interesting,
pleasant, and
enjoyable.

F i n a l e

 

No matter what age we are we still have a number
of possibilities
within to start again differently.
We can change our life, if we really want.

A simple but excellent start to the New Year will be 

(a)  to get out of the house more, or 

(b)  to go for walks in nature, or 

(c)  to talk to the people you meet, or 

(d)  to join a Spa.

 

Have a very Happy New Year!!!
