Prevail in Spite of Fear

“Accept fear and forge ahead in spite of it.”

When we deny the fear inside, we keep it lurking there. It remains in our minds, quietly holding us back from reaching new goals or fully experiencing new opportunities.

Accept your fear – there’s nothing shameful in it. Next time you shy away from a situation, stop and say to yourself, “I’m scared, but I’m still going to do it!”

As you acknowledge your feelings and keep going forward in spite of them, your self-worth and self-confidence will rise. The adrenaline from fear will change to the excitement of anticipation. Suddenly, you’ll realize the emotion you’re feeling has turned into sheer enthusiasm!

Get to the Core of Motivation

“Motivation comes from doing, not thinking.”

The longer you sit and think about doing something, the harder it becomes to do it. If you think too much, excuses may paralyze you.

Today is your day to stop thinking and start doing!

When you start doing something, positive energy flows and you become more motivated. So don’t think about how you’re going to exercise. Put on your running shoes and run! Don’t think about how you’ll learn a new skill some day. Go out and book a course, right now!

Stop procrastinating. Start doing! You’ll find a motivation that can change your life!

Get Toxic People Out of Your Life

“You’re at your best in a supportive environment.”

A significant part of your environment is the people you spend time with. These people have a huge impact on you and your decisions. That is precisely why you need to be sure you surround yourself with those who support you and your ambitions.

Do your best to avoid people who belittle your enthusiasm, put you down or try to squash your dreams. Do your best to seek out those that support your goals and share your infectious energy.

Surround yourself with positive people. When you combine that with both positive energy and attitude, you can’t help but soar.

Know What is Best for YOU

“Depend on your inner guide.”

When others give you advice, they may be right and they may be wrong. They may share your values and priorities, or they may not.

Rely on your inner judgment and intuition instead, and you’ll stay on the right track.

You know inside what’s best for you. If you follow this code, you’ll stick by your principles, values and beliefs.

What’s more, even if things don’t work out, you’ll have the comfort of knowing you did what you thought was best for you. And, that’s always the right thing to do!

Bring Peace to Your Soul

“Stop the world and take in the beauty around you.”

Most of us are so involved with the tasks that must be accomplished by tomorrow, that we miss the beauty of today. Loveliness all around us gets taken for granted. We rarely look up from our daily tasks to appreciate the treasures of our environment.

Take a moment from your hectic schedule, and smell the flowers. Watch the graceful soaring of a kite or even marvel at the stars.

You’ll be surprised by the freedom you feel and the peace that it brings to your soul.

Triumph Over Hardships

“Think life is hard – and it’s hard!”

When you dwell on your problems or what you don’t have, you generate negative energy, and chances are your life won’t change for the better. Why not focus on the possibilities?

When you make up your mind to do something, you’ll find you can. Instead of thinking about barriers in life, reach out after opportunities. Instead of seeing a locked door, see a key. Instead of thinking about the rough mountain climb ahead, see yourself standing on the summit.

Today, resolve to let go of the struggles and embrace your potential. Your shift in attitude will shift your life from the shadows into the sunshine.

Free Yourself From Resentment

“Harboring resentment wastes time and robs your energy.”

Holding grudges against another takes a tremendous amount of energy and slowly erodes your happiness.

If you think about it, it’s also a waste of time. You have so many better things to do with your life.

When you allow your negative emotions to affect your daily thoughts and actions, you become controlled by them.

Take a check of the resentment you hold against your loved ones, your co-workers or even your neighbor. Try to overcome your resentment by letting your considerate and loving nature dominate thoughts and actions.

You can choose how to live your life. Free yourself from resentment and you will regain all of your energy. Try it. You’ll feel great when you do!
