I fantasize all the time about what I need to do to live a happier life. I believe holistic healing and personal development are 2 major sources to fill this void. This sounds kind of basic but there is incredible depth in these subjects. The study of developing yourself takes a serious commitment on your part of time and effort, but the results are unbelievable. First, we need to understand a seed doesn’t grow over night, well literally it does start the growth process, but I am talking about the desired growth. Then we must cultivate our minds, bodies, and spirit daily and all throughout the day with habitual consistent repetitious good habits and exercises! These techniques, activities, and exercises that I am referring to are taught in books, seminars, and conferences. With a bit of research online anyone can start or continue their journey toward the pursuit of happiness. You need to be prepared for resistance, I am not saying this is going to be easy, nothing worth congratulating ever is, it is going to require consistent work. In my life I have resisted many tempting situations, I also decided to take many wrong actions but today through the lessons from personal development, I can practice acceptance in all areas of my life with a new understanding. By focusing on forgiveness and thanksgiving for everything that has happened, with faith in my higher power for everything that is happening and everything that is going to happen, is what I believe will attract more of the same positivity that I am putting out into the world. The other day something happened that is worth noting. I think a major lesson occurred that everyone can record in their minds and take with them throughout their life. I was working out in the garage when the thought came across my mind to have a private business meeting for my new internet business. Then I thought, “what date and what time,” “who will I invite,” “where will I hold this event.” That’s when I was flooded with negative thoughts like “NO, don’t do it,” “maybe it’s not a good idea,” and “probably no one is going show up anyway.” I was quiet for a while and my blood started boiling because my positive self was getting upset with my negative self. So, I knew I had to change my attitude and change it fast. I got honest with myself and let myself know how I felt. I said, “self, if I am going to be more productive, I must break out of the norm and do something spontaneous.” Myself did not like to hear that, it told me I would feel uncomfortable. Then I replied, “I think it’s time for a compromise, you want to see me be successful right, you want me to move on to higher levels desired with better possessions, travel the world, enjoy life and do things that will make me happier, right.” Finally, I demanded some encouragement from my negative self. Of course, my negative self-tried to justify, how it does try to encourage me sometimes. Then I said, “how is that encouraging, how is negative comments encouraging, I have been feed negativity my whole life from acquaintances, society, even some family members my whole life, now you,” I had enough. I asked myself politely for some encouragement, is that so much to ask. I told myself, “I must do what my mentors and coaches are telling me to do, to get out of these lowly consequences that I buried myself in from neglecting my mind, body, and spirit, instead of studying techniques and strategies from personal development and high achievers who promote success! Then I made the decision, I am going to do it, whatever it takes, no matter what happens, or however long it takes. The facts are, if you go through any personal development book from cover to cover, they all have that main idea somewhere, never give up, keep on working, taking one more step toward your goals. Do not let nothing get in your way, go after what you want in life until you own it. Today, since I made that decision, my business is doing great, growing everyday with new sign ups. I will stay committed while learning from my personal trainers, moving up the ranks to the top level, knowing that repetition is the key to unlocking my subconscious guide toward success. “Success is yours so get what you need and keep going going and going until its yours.” World Peace!
