Insane Roots

I am so excited! I have been exploring the teachings of Abraham Hicks for a few months now and I finally think I am getting the hang of it. I was making it a bit too difficult at first (of ‘course I was), by actually changing every negative thought I had. I realize now that by focusing so much attention to negative behavior, I was only attracting more struggles with my negative patterns. I now realize that it is more about paying attention to your feelings and what they are telling you about any individual moment in time. It’s about recognizing what you don’t want by being aware of the source of the feelings connected to those things.

Over and over again Abraham has said “By knowing what we don’t want, we can better understand what it is that we do want”.

The main goal in all of this is…

I am right and you are wrong

This is Mick Canning a new blog I am following. Mick adds to our discussion today about being open-minded with his post I Am Right and You Are Wrong. Wonderful perspective!

Mick Canning

I am right and you are wrong (regardless of whatever you are saying).

We are all human; we are all fallible and none of us are all-knowing. Most of us are beset by doubts, and we hold a number of conflicting opinions (which we usually try to pretend aren’t there). Is this a bad thing? Quite the opposite, I think.

We can only really grow in the company of people who challenge our beliefs. We can only really attain empathy for others when we understand where they are coming from. That is why it is, for example, so important to understand the reasons that terrorists carry out atrocities. Understanding is not the same as condoning. Understanding someone’s point of view, understanding why they hold that point of view; what events have shaped their lives, can only help us to a better understanding of how to deal with any conflict that…

Make the choice

Don’t be misled, your attitude is your decision! YOU decide to be negative or YOU decide to be positive. It is 100% a choice! We could all learn from Planting Positivity!!

Planting Positivity

Working in a service industry (photography) can sometimes make it easy for me to complain.

I recently had a client claim they were thrilled with the photos I sent to them, only to turn around and nit-pick one image, asking for me to provide them with a different shot, and to edit a whole slew of things on it that I hadn’t seen as an issue visually.

I immediately felt a flush of heat to my face when I got the email from my client… I was angry for about five minutes, and then I realized that my main goal as a photographer is to make my clients happy through the images I can provide them with. I had a decision to make: tell the client, “Sorry, that’s the image I chose to edit and per your contract that’s all you get.” Or, go ahead and put two hours of…

Becoming a More Positive Person

Reflect and Refresh gives some great insight and tips to changing your mindset to be more positive. The last sentence deals with something I have said before: volunteering will change your mindset.

Sometimes life will serve us all with conditions that may seem impossible to think positively about, but this is almost rarely the case.

I know this because within three months of each other, both of my childhood dogs and my music teacher, who was also a close family friend, passed away.

However, in the midst of school resuming, I had no time to devote to truly getting over these things, and depression and anxiety soon dominated my life.

I began to see a therapist because I knew I wasn’t feeling up to par, and she’s taught me how to change my negative thought patterns and to put things into perspective.

We could all stand to be more positive, so here are some tips for doing just that the next time you start to see a little too much of Holden Caulfield in yourself.

Mindset is EVERYTHING

This is a new blogger I am following and this post is a homerun!!!! The list exercise at the end is one I have never used but it makes so much sense and helps to train the mind to be more positive. I loved this post!

healthy. hapa. chick.

My boss always talks about the concept of mindset and how in everything you do in life, your mindset about it will affect the outcome. He surrounds all of his employees with positive affirmations and promotes the idea of a can-do attitude. We sometimes laugh (even cringe) at the different things that come up on our daily calendars but as I’ve started to get into coaching and really think about my own life and my own weight loss journey, I am starting to really believe that mindset is EVERYTHING.

Why I Am So Positive: My Life Ain’t That Bad

I had a question posed to me this week: how are you always so positive considering you have secondary progressive MS?  Well the truth is I don’t live my life in a continuous state of positivity.  I write a blog that focuses on learning how to transform oneself from an under-achiever, non-doer into a personimages (1) of organization, purpose, plan and action; full of desire and ambition.  It takes a lot of work to remain positive.

Honestly, I am more positive now in life because the alternative is not acceptable.  I will not allow myself to go to the dark side and focus on how crappy life can be, how crappy people can be, how I hate my job, how life just keeps putting it to me.  I just refuse to allow my mind to think it those terms.

Why?  Because I choose to focus very little on the negative, while focusing heavily on the positive as I work toward achieving my goals.

This does not mean I am not aware of the negatives.  I do not live my life with my head buried in the sand.  I simply will not allow myself to use valuable life energy to focus on negatives.  It is not productive, thus I find productive things on which to focus.

It is not easy and takes much effort to live a life focusing on the positive.  Part of me wants to give in and just become negative.  I do not talk about my MS, too often.  I do not complain about my MS pain, too often.  I do not complain about not playing golf anymore, too often.  I do not complain about having to take my Copaxone shot 3 times per week, too often.

I think many people would understand if I did complain.  AND I know a lot of chronic sufferers that complain incessantly, most of whom I give a hall pass because I know what it feels like to hurt.  But I will not give in.  I will not relent.  I choose to fight.  I choose to stay positive.  I choose my mentality.  I choose my future!

I am positive because it is the one thing I get to control. 

To those that live a life of negativity I say: suck it up buttercup.  I bet there’s a kid in a third-world country that would give a limb to switch places with you and do it without hesitation.  We have it easy in civilized societies; we are so incredibly spoiled. Most of us suffer from first-world problems and act as if the world is coming to an end.

ProblemsWe don’t have to walk 5 miles one way to carry back dirty water to our families.  Water that will kill millions of kids each year.  We don’t have to worry about polio, AIDS, diphtheria, measles, deadly enfluenza, lions, tigers or bears!  Seriously, the next time you start complaining, stop and listen to yourself.  What are you complaining about?  Take action, change your position, change your future.  You have the freedom to do so.

You ARE the answer to your own problems; start acting like it.

Why do I choose to remain positive?  Because I live in a country that allows me to write a blog to help others.  I live in a country where I can speak to MS patients and let them know someone cares.  I live in a country that allows me to turn my life into whatever I want it to be.

Why do I choose to remain positive?  Because when all is said and done, my life ain’t that bad!

Think And Grow Rich – Napoleon Hill Part 2

This is an excerpt I found on Desire and Achieve from Napoleon Hill’s book Think and Grow Rich. It describes Hill’s belief of how faith is used in achieving any goal. Great read!

(as always, please be mindful to leave any comments here and with the original blogger.  thnx. D)

Desire and achieve

Buy On Amazon UK

Faith is required for success, not hope, not wishes but faith. You need to constantly invasion yourself as a millionaire, see the money in your hands, imagine seeing the 7 digits on your bank balance and imagine yourself in your dream house. All accomplishment comes your way once you imagine yourself there.

“Faith is the head chemist of the mind. When faith is blended with the vibration of thought, the subconscious mind instantly picks up the vibration, translates it into its spiritual equivalent, and transmit it to Infinite Intelligence.”

How To Develop Faith

The art of developing faith in your dreams is being able to trick your subconscious mind into believing your goals will soon be a reality. If you can make you subconscious mind believe you are a successful person, you will begin to become one in reality.

1. Repetition. Constantly reassure yourself that you will be…

Always end the day with a positive thought. No matter how hard things were, tomorrow’s a fresh opportunity to make it better.

For many of us, achieving a fresh start starts with a renewing of the mind and fresh new, positive thoughts!
