Your Body

Posted on 16 June, 2014 at 5:20 Comments comments (0)

Your body is the most important asset you have control over. It is up to YOU what you do with it..

This is the vehicle that has to last you a very long time, it is going to be with you for lets say at least 90 years.. 

If you want this amazing vehicle to go the distance it is time to take a look at how you actually treat it.  

There is so much information on the internet at the moment telling you not to eat this or eat more of this, go raw, eat organic, go vegan.  My philosophy is KISS .. Keep it simple silly!!  


All about moderation and balance.  Keep everything in balance I believe this is the key to your success with life, health and mental well being. Don't go manic on any diet just eat everything that makes you FEEL good in moderation. If you would like a piece of cake, have it but don't eat the whole cake!  it is that simple.. 

It is the same with exercice, flog yourself silly in the gym or do everything in balance.. My belief is balance,  find something you love do it a few times a week, the joy you receive from the activity will also help increase your sense of well being. 

My favourite is yoga and my favourite yoga instructor is Ashley !!  She is awesome, balanced & real.  If you would like to try a workout cliick on the information below and ENJOY!!   Stay healthy, love your body, be real !

Stickability

Posted on 16 April, 2014 at 20:40 Comments comments (0)

How many of you are looking for the perfect life flicking from one idea to the next?  If this sounds like you maybe you need to take a deep breath and sit down and think what it is you are really looking for.

 

If you are looking for happiness, riches or even just stability you have to pick one thing and stick to it.  It is again all down to how you feel.  If it feels right then stick it out and if it feels wrong get OUT! 

 

There are too many get rich quick, you could call them schemes,  but they are all proabably legitimate business ideas that require committment and some stickability.  If it takes you 5 years to get where you need to go then heck why not stick it out.  I think with all the hype and marketing on the net these days half the population is convinced that all they have to do is place a few ads, write a blog for a week and "Hey Presto" they are going to be rich.  You need to get a little serious with yourself if this is your thought pattern.  Truly?  Do you really believe this is how it all happens. 

Time to read some good old fashioned auto biographies pick which ever ones tickle your fancy.  But once you get hooked on these you will soon see that everyone who has ever made it , put in the hard yards, they just didn't wake up at the end of the journey, they had the journey.  You know what this is half the fun, it makes you into someone special, someone who actually deserves success and someone with eyes that are wide open.

Your homework today is to find an autobiography of someone who has inspired you.. read it in full and see how this effects your thought process at the end.  Ciao Have a fabulous day!!! 

 

 

 

Fear and Doubt

Posted on 12 April, 2014 at 4:05 Comments comments (2)

Fear & Doubt


Being frightened triggers automatic responses within our system, this used to be very handy many moons ago but it is very unlikely that we are going to be chased through the supermarket by a wild gorilla when we pop in to pick up some eggs. 


Our body is now in a constant state of fear daily as we are bombarded by the 24 hour plug in that we are graced with. Don't get me wrong I am a huge fan of gratitude and am immensely grateful to Steve Jobs and his vision, but someone forgot to tell our body it is just a story in another land and the danger even though it is real, it is not real for us.  So here we are in a constant state of fear with our adrenal glands in over drive. 


So what is the solution, unplug.  How funny as you are probably reading this on your ipad or laptop and I am telling you to switch off.  It is so important for your health and well being you need to gain the discipline to do so. 


Our bodies need time to get grounded become one with our creator / the universe  / spirit  whatever tickles  your fancy. It is so important for soul to make this connection, this will be one of the major contributing factors to avoid total burnout and to your success.


How else can we control our fear / doubt.  The next best thing is to get control of the little voice in your head.  For funs sake lets call her Mildred.  She has been with you since you can remember always in the back of your mind just edging you a little closer to her buddies fear and doubt.  If you can become aware of this little (sometimes overwhelming) voice  and figure out  the triggers that set Mildred on one of her raving rants, you are heading towards peace and contentment.  Take note of when she appears, you will be amazed at how much better you feel and how much more empowered you feel,  now that you are simply aware.



Fear and doubt can also sabotage your future, it can literally paralyse you with fear that you simply do nothing.  You have all these dreams and aspirations and you simply do not act on any of them because you are frightened, what if you actually succeed, frightened of the changes it may bring, frightened of what people may think of you, frightened of failing.  So instead you do nothing because that is safe and everyone else is doing it, so it must be ok.



Do you want to be a success? Now that's a whole new blog certainly opening up a big can of worms there, what is success and how do we define it?  Or even the question how do others define our success through their eyes? 



Don't be frightened, don't waste your life being something you hate and do out of duty.  Be who you want to be.  So take the time today and find your Mildred and get to know her.  Find out what sets her off and take note, be there to silence her and embrace the contentment this brings.

 

 

What is YOUR Purpose

Posted on 18 March, 2014 at 21:30 Comments comments (0)

Welcome to my blog and my very first entry!!


Your Purpose 


This is oneof the most asked questions of our time.


What was I put here to do?


The lives of people living n developed countries are becoming so comfortable that we no longer have to spend hours hunting for food, preparing meals and trying to stay alive. Such luxuries that have arrived in the western world (civilised may be an over statement) as electricity and modern day appliances alleviate a lot of this for us, time is on our side. 


So now we ponder : 


What am I supposed to be doing with my life?


The reality of the clock ticking and our fast pace society dictates we should accomplish and accomplish now.


There is so much pressure on all of us to get everything sorted and get it done, but what is it that we are supposed to be getting done?


Goals are so important, without them  you are simply floating around with a wish list, but in perspective without your purpose being defined they seem somewhat arbitrary.


So how do you discover your purpose? This is where you need to get connected to source, meditation will help you here. Try meditating on this one question.  If you were on your death bed and your loved one sat beside you and asked 


"What are your regrets?"


How would you answer this question, what would you feel and how would you respond.  Could you lie there with a full heart and say  " I have none!"  or would you ponder and have a small list or a list 20 miles long.

Would your answer be, I regret not becoming an author, not trekking to Mt Everest, not building the orphanage in a 3rd world country as you had always dreamed?  What would it be?


Looking at your regrets now, is a way to build the life you always wanted.  Take charge don't let the sand of time slip between your fingers and have a list 20 miles long. 


If you say your regreted not playing an instrument, this could be an insight into your purpose.  Do  you long to be a Muso?  Or would it be your regret not having a family because you were too busy on your career?  Another insight, this is something your should pursue, after all it is your own private journey, only you know the answers. 


To find your purpose you need to look deep into your soul and be true to yourself.  It is a wasted life when you are doing something your hate, simply for the paycheck at the end of the week.  Put yourself first and commit to finding your life's pupose with me ..


Spend some time today on yourself and make "you" the PRIORITY 


Do a 10 minute meditation and see what answers come to you, this could be the beginning?
