“Challenges provide opportunities that force us to search for a new center of gravity. Don’t resist. Resistance only causes more struggle. You can’t win if you’re fighting the truth. Instead, persist in finding and letting it break you open.”- Oprah Winfrey
It’s important to know that your self-worth is not defined by your net worth.
If your self-worth is determined by things outside of yourself then you are always going to go through fluctuations where times are good and times are bad.
You are perfect and whole in the way you’re created.
We live in a world that is forever changing. Nothing lasts. This too shall pass.
Highs and lows are part of life’s rich pattern but remember you are perfect and whole in the image you’re created.
You’re one with the source of all things. You are perfect as you are. You don’t need the relationship, the job, the car etc, to define you and make you perfect and worthy.
You are perfect as you are.
You are good enough just as you are.
When you can let go of all the false trappings and surrender you will never be in lack but in abundance. True abundance and prosperity.
Don’t use outside forces as the source of your wealth.
“Guard against the love of houses and things, the prophet warns, for these comforts erode the strength of the soul. If you attach yourself too much to the domestic luxuries of life, ‘Your house shall not be an anchor but a mast.’ You will be tied to it when the ship sinks.” – Kahlil Gibran
Our financial experience happens through us not to us.
It’s essential, if you want to make money, that your spiritual heart-felt practice is brought into your working practice.
Bring your spiritual principles into your whole life.
Fifteen minutes of spiritual practice a day will change everything. Meditation and silence, visualization, affirmations, gratitude and forgiveness will get you into that zone!
Make your goals so big and inspiring that they make your problems insignificant by comparison.
Don’t think small. Think big. Be a leader. Live.
Act from a growth mindset.
You’re going to face challenges whether you like it or not.
You’re going to make mistakes. It’s part of living.
So turn your wounds into wisdom.
Create a mindset for success by not defining yourself with any outside forces.
The treasures you seek in life are hidden in the cave you’re so fearful to enter.
So act from the soul to break the fear.
“It is only with the heart that one can see rightly what is essential is invisible to the eye.” – Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
Self-love is the most important force there is. If you don’t love yourself you can never love another. So say to yourself daily, ‘I love myself enough to live a happy and prosperous and abundant life.’
Be shameless about how good you are and you’ll start to surprise yourself.
If you look good you’ll feel good and vice-versa.
The more satisfied you are with what you have the more likely you are to have more. Gratitude attracts abundance.
“There are only two ways to live your life. As though nothing is a miracle, or as though everything is a miracle.” – Albert Einstein
Visit places and open your eyes wide. This will all help to raise your vibration. Wander sometimes. Straight lines are so predictable.
Three universal truths which are easily forgotten:
1. Your fears, doubts and limitations are not you. They are the collective consciousness of our world. We are programmed by the rest of the world to be fearful and negative.
2. Challenges, sacrifices and pain can be the situations that create the most meaning in your life. They re-shape you into the best version of who you can be.
3. The fact you are alive is a blessing. You’re blessed to be a spiritual being having a human experience.
The more successful we become the more we will be judged by others so redefine the meaning of success in your world. A goal without pain is just a wish.
Method acting. You become the character and all aspects of that person in a role, so become your own superhero in your life. It’s a direct reflection of the way you view yourself- your self-image. You slowly and surely become that person. As I’ve always said, you are the Director, Producer and Actor in your own life movie.
In pursuit of self-knowledge we are looking for the best in ourselves.
Be friends with ourselves and through that increase our warmth and sensitivity.
Taking risks is the way to real growth. It is the ego that likes things to be just so, looking for permanency. So let go of fear and give something of yourself. If you are growing you will feel fulfilled and abundant about everything.
“The secret of change is to focus all your energy, not on fighting the old but on building the new.” – Socrates
