Your thoughts are the solution to every stressful event you encounter

Which lane is going to get me where I want to goStress is caused when your mind tries to find a resolution to a problem when you do not have the information or power to solve it.

Example: If you consider stressful situations are like being stuck in the middle lane of the traffic jam like that white car.

Unknowable: You don’t know what’s causing the tailback or how long it will take you to get to your destination. You don’t know whether the lanes on either side of you will go faster or slower if you move into them.

What you know: You know the traffic jam will not last forever, eventually the traffic with thin out and you will get moving forward again.

  • Another thing you know is, being stressed about your current situation is not going to help you in any positive way.

stress can be relieved through acceptanceDuring those stressful moments in your life the only logical option is to accept the following. You are where you are meant to be and you will arrive at your destination when you’re meant to arrive.

I’ll leave you with a couple of lines that employ common sense.

  • If your actions don’t relieve your stress, you’ve got to learn how to change how you think about the cause of your stress.
  • Stress is something you embrace, you have the power to release it.
  • Stress is clearly the result of not thinking clearly.
  • You should never stress about what you cannot possibly know.
  • Whatever you accept will not cause you stress.

Believing in yourself is good for you

When you believe in your future, nobody can take it away from you.

bumble beeAccording to all known laws of aviation, there’s no way that a male bee should be able to fly. Its wings are too small to get its fat little body off the ground, however, the male bee doesn’t care what humans believe so he continues to fly effortlessly along.

That’s one valuable lesson people can learn from the humble bee: Don’t listen to people with limited beliefs about what’s possible.

You may be talented, inspired and motivated, however, if you don’t believe in yourself, those traits will only get you so far. Remember, your belief in yourself is your super power, it gives that edge over everybody else who is competing with you.

How do you believe in yourself?

  1. As long as your beliefs help keep on believing.Accept yourself for who you are today.
  2. Look back on everything you have accomplished in your life. For example; if you have passed one exam in your life, you’re capable of passing every exam you will take in your future.
  3. Talk out loud to yourself, tell yourself how energetic, powerful, strong and courageous you are. If you feel uncomfortable letting other people hear you, put a pair of earphones in and they will think you’re motivating somebody using your mobile phone.
  4. Allow yourself to make mistakes. Believe me when I tell you, every leader makes mistakes all the time, they’re just better at hiding them.
  5. Learn from everybody you admire. Take the traits you admire most about them and adopt them to suit your purpose.
  6. Adopt a positive attitude towards everything.
  7. Live in the moment, if something isn’t going right for you at any given time, don’t cling to that moment, let it go. There will be plenty of moments when everything will go right for you.
  8. Listen to, and accept compliments from other people with gratitude.
  9. Don’t pay attention to insults. They’re normally given by weak people who think they will make them strong.
  10. You are not alone.
  11. Share your opinions. However, don’t expect everybody to agree with you.
  12. Don’t allow your past to anchor you to the past.
  13. Believe in your destiny, you were put on this planet for a good reason.

I’ll leave you with a couple of my favourite quotes:

  • “Every saint has a past, every sinner a future.” ~Oscar Wilde.
  • “We are what we believe we are.” ~C.S. Lewis.
  • “The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.” ~Eleanor Roosevelt.
  • “Never stop trying. Never stop believing. Never give up. Your day will come.” ~Mandy Hale.

Karma what goes around comes around

Karma what goes around comes aroundHow other people think and act will determine what they attract into their lives (their karma), your thoughts and actions will determine your Karma.

Cursing your enemies may sound like a fun thing to do; “May you get the runs on your wedding night.” or “may you get an itch you can’t reach, are two popular Irish curses. However, they’re your thoughts and if you wish those things for somebody else, you’re really wishing them for yourself.

You’d be better off wishing for them to experience a wonderful happy and healthy life, and wishing for them to win a fortune every year they’re alive. Now, that’s something worth receiving.

How Karma works: If you work on the theory that your karmic force is an all-powerful 14-month-old baby, who doesn’t know right from wrong, positive from negative, good from evil and whose ability to understand language is almost non-existent. All they understand are images and emotions. That’s why the information you’re sending to your karmic force needs to be clear.

If you’re forever cursing people, your karmic force will guide you to find more people to curse. If you’re wishing happiness for people, it will look for people and events to bring more happiness into your life. I’ll leave you with one final thought;

If you knew how powerful your thoughts and emotions are, you’d never concentrate on a negative one.

Common sense is always worth following

Listen to people with simple solutions, they’re people who have experienced similar problems, and came out the other side stronger and wiser.

Both will make you happy

If the choice was yours to make, which life-style would you choose? Poor and enlightened, or rich and oblivious.

Needless to say, they are only two of countless possibilities available to you, but, If I included all of them, this post world never be published and even the most avid reader wouldn’t read it.

If you can’t decide, you can always play with the bubble wrap, that’s something everybody enjoys.

There’s one small thing I failed to mention, an enlightened mind is a spiritual mind who places little value on the things rich people cherish so they can never be poor.

The opposite must be true too

If there is no genius without a touch of madness, we can say, there’s no madness without a touch of genius.

The question that needs to be asked is, are we looking in the wrong places for advice?

If you always do what has always been done, you will get no further than those people who came before you.

If you want a different future, be different. Show people your genius.

You can ignore anything you want

Until the arrival of social media a lot of things happened in the world which people were completely unaware.

Those people didn’t have a choice, unlike you, you decide every day what information you want to be exposed to.

You say, “you don’t have a choice,” that’s not quite true, you have the power to ignore anything you want to ignore.

If you don’t want to ignore it? You can just turn off your device and pretend you live on a beautiful planet full of happy people who are living a carefree existence.

A multitude of thoughts happen on any given day

Imagine your life as an animal

This animal will live as long as its owners think it’s adding value to the price some butcher will pay.

During its short life it will never go hungry. It will always be surrounded by other animals. Any signs of illness and the vet will be called. In cold weather it will be brought inside to a warm shed.

One day its owner will put it onto a transporter to fulfil its only purpose for existing in the first place, and that is to satisfy human need.

That’s life folks. If you’re not satisfying a human need, you’re not needed.

Sorry, you cannot control what other people believe

If somebody else’s beliefs do not harm you; you don’t have the right to tell them what to believe in.

The pot of gold at the end of the rainbow belongs to everybody who believes in its existence.

The people who make a wish when they see a falling star believe in luck.

Believing everybody you meet has a message for you will make you a wonderful listener and popular with people who like to talk.

You are God’s gift to someone.

People who believe they can improve their life are the people who do.

If people want to believe in miracles, let them.

You know the story already

I didn’t want to go there anyway.

They only thought they were missing out.

For example; everybody wants to be invited to every party their friends are invited to because they don’t want to feel left out, that is until they receive their invite, then they spend their time trying to make a good excuse why they can’t go.
