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.

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.

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.

not take life
too seriously.

 

 

Qui Audet Adipisciur!

 

 

 

Hello!

 

Life is full of unexpected events. Sometimes it goes
smoothly but many times it can be very difficult
and disappointing.  It is then that we will be called
upon to start all over again.

We may have to face an unforeseen divorce, a sudden
death or a surprising illness.
Building up our life all over again is a frightening
thought which fills us with anxiety.

But also it is one which gives us ground and hope
to create a new life.
These modern times we live beginning a new life again
is an everyday reality.

Although it is a frightening experience and a hard try,
it is a new way to define ourselves.

Here are six simple ways to start your life again.

 

A)  Live In The Present

 

It is very easy to stay in the past because we have
already invested a big part of our lives in it.
But if we want to move on and start over, we must
leave the past where it belongs — in the past!

Keep busy with your present life and create a new you.

 

B)  Enjoy The Trip

 

Although as adults we have less time and opportunities
than the young, still we have the choice to be daring
and take some risks.

View the creation of your new self as a pleasant journey
and be thankful for what it brings to your new life.

 

C)  Trust The Conclusion

 

When we are ready to start over, we always
believe that our new life will be better than our previous
in many ways;  otherwise there is no point in
starting anything.

The opportunities are out there — we only need to find
and take advantage of them.

D)  Prioritize

 

 In order to succeed we have to put our priorities
right.  There is no way we can do everything at
the same time.

Focus on the most important things to be done
first in order to create the right flow of things.

 

E)   Bona Fide

 

We usually are stuck to what was  —  especially
the first few years after the unexpected event.
We always think what and how we used to be
and live.

Everything changes, and in order to follow we
must evolve and adapt ourselves to the new
situations.

 

F)  Defeat Struggle

 

Often when we have a difficult task to do we tend
to postpone it for indefinite periods.
By delaying taking the necessary steps to restart our
life it becomes progressively more difficult every day,
and finally it will never happen.

Start now to enjoy the life you want later.

 

Learn the lessons well, even if you have to go through fire,
and you will definitely succeed in creating your new self.
You will see and enjoy the dramatic change eventually.
